Acer Aspire laptop won't turn on

Q: Acer Aspire laptop won't turn on

I know this has been posted a lot but mine seems to be a little odder than what has been posted. My laptop just shut off one day and will only turn on when the back/bottom of the laptop is not on, which means my motherboard is completely exposed, once I put the back/bottom back on it will not turn on. I thought it might have been the fan, its not brand new fan and still wont turn on. Any help would be awesome!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This is not an easy one to help with without have the laptop in my own hands. You will most likely find that there is a bad connection somewhere that is being broken when the base is fitted. Have a good look at all the ribbon cable connections as one has probably worked loose.

Hi! I have an ACER Aspire 3050 for some reason will not turn on. No lights, no fan, absolutaly nothing will happen. The laptop isn't actually mine, its a friends. I shake it from side to side a little and I can hear a tinking sound like something is loose. I'm going to try and open it up to see if this is the case but if its not, is there any other reason why it just randomly won't turn on anymore?

Thanks for any help!
 

A:Acer Aspire 3050 laptop will not turn on

I think it's best we wait for your reply to what's loose inside!

Make sure battery and power adaptor out
And also hold down the ON button (to disperse all internal voltage)

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot, I'm new. I have an Acer Aspire 7736Z-4088 laptop. I do not remember the year it was purchased, but it has been a few years. This laptop and I have a love-hate relationship with each other. The laptop has sat idle for months because it stopped charging and I could no longer turn it on because the battery was dead. It has stopped charing before and I left it for months until it randomly decided to start charging again. Before it stopped charging the most recent time, the laptop would only charge if the charging cable was in a certain position. The charger I am using is a Targus charger. When plugged into an outlet, the charger light turns on, however when plugged into the laptop, nothing. Is my laptop battery completely useless and needs to be replaced? Or is it something to do with the charger or charging pin?

With the battery out and the laptop plugged in, how long are you holding down the power button? It may take several seconds.

I have an acer aspire 3500 we've had it for quite a few years but its always worked fine. As I was downloading some things of iTunes I left my laptop on on the floor all night and then all the next day. As my laptop is old it needs to be plugged in all the time when it's on because the battery won't work. While I was on it it just turned off and now it won't turn back on the charger has a green light on showing that's working but when plugged in the laptop has no lights on. Please help? Do you think it may of overheated???

A:[SOLVED] Laptop won't turn on (acer aspire 3500)

That is possible, and especially if you set it on a carpeted floor. That overheating generally would cause it to go into shutdown though, and not ruin it.

But if it's quite a few years old, as you say, then it's quite possible that any overheating you might have had could have caused a component to fail. In cases like yours, usually I'd ask if you could remove power, remove the battery, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, then plug it back into power and try it.

And, of course, the power brick itself could have gone south...even with a green light on so if you have a meter, measure the voltage output of the brick.

Hi there,I bought this All-in-one on 13/3/2016. I was doing my work and finished printing it yesterday night. I then went to the kitchen, leaving in on for about 10 minutes. When I came back, I found that the computer had shut down and refused to turn on even when I tried pressing the power button several times. I have tried changing power sockets in case the sockets were not working and even though the sockets were working, it still did not power on.I searched your discussion for a solution and tried the "remove power and press power button for 30 seconds solution" and it still will not start at all.Are there any other solutions or must I bring the set down for repair? It is on a 3-year warranty.Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have an acer aspire laptop that won't turn on. It was working fine unplugged and I went out leaving it on but unplugged to mains power. When I got back I plugged utility in and tried to wake it up. Now I have it plugged in and the power adapter has a green light and the battery light on the laptop is amber. When I press the power button, both these lights go off. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have tried removing all power and holding the power switch for 39-45 seconds. Then plugging back in without battery and turning on- that doesn't work! Please help.

I have a 13 month old Slimline Acer Aspire ax1700. Of Course the Warranty has expired. I just turned it on.
Went to read E-mail. It was on for less than 10 minutes. Display looked fine. Then it shut down. When I put my hand on it to check, the top was very hot. Opened the case . The video Card was what was hot. I think the fan on it could of failed. But after the Computer was cool I plugged it in and I have no power at all. Is it possible that the Over heated video card took out the power supply. And do I have to replace both. I have found another video card online to replace it. But have not seen a Replacement for the Power supply. I
 

A:Acer Aspire Will not Turn on

At this point, you cannot be sure what it is that has gone bad. It could be the video card, the power supply, the motherboard or both the motherboard and the video card. It is possible an overheated video card went bad, taking the main board with it. One way you could test is to open the computer case and disconnect everything that is disconnectable from the board (except power). Remove video card and other add-in cards; disconnect hard disks, CD/DVD drives, etc. Then see if the computer will power up. If not, you have narrowed the problem to power supply, memory, main board, and processor.

Remove the power supply and take it to a repair shop and have it tested. They will probably do it for free on the prospect of selling one.

As an aside, it seems all expensive, high-end video cards have ten-cent fans. I've actually seen cases where those fans have seized in about a month. In my opinion, all of them should come with two spare fans in the box. They invariably fail and sometimes take the main boards with them. So, for any computer that has a video card requiring a fan to keep it cool, I recommend a secondary fan mounted in the case and pointed directly at the video card's heat-sink.

Acer Aspire M5200 desktop. Been escalating problems, error messages upon boot over last 2 weeks asking for system restore. Worked fine when running. Will not turn on at all now, lights at bottom on Aspire word but not on power button, ticking about every second starts, sounds like in the disc drive but not sure. Regardless won't boot up and monitor doesn't recognize a device. Tried removing video card and powering, no change. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help

First remove any CD's from the drive. When you power on the computer, do you get the Acer Logo? If the ticking is coming from the HDD then it has failed. Can you boot into Setup (Bios)? if not, then you may have a failing Power Supply Unit

Hi all,My Acer Aspire stop working and won't turn on.I was watching video on it (on battery) when it shut down and now doesn't want to start at all.It does show that it is charging.No blue, orange or green light.Any suggestions?

A:My Acer Aspire e15 won't turn on

Nothing at all shows on the screen? No windows startup sounds? Do you hear fans and drives spin up or LEDs flash (besides the charging LED) when you attempt to start it? If no no and no then it'd be hard to point to a specific fix, especially one that didn't require you to disassemble it. Is it still under warranty?

Hi All,

I have an Acer Aspire 5715Z and when i press the power on button, it will turn the fan on, and seem to start booting up, but then nothing and turns off.

There is nothing on the screen at all, infact I dont think the screen even lights up (and yes, I have checked for writing with a torch to make sure its not just the screen or video driver that has gone).

The only light i get is the little power LED, no hard drive light or anything else and then it turns straight off.

Any ideas how to fix this or what part i need to get to repair the problem please?

Thanks

I think there may be some hardware issues; but from the info you have given us I am unable to guess what it may be; I'll advise you to take it to Acer if its still under warranty.

You can also try to see whether pressing ALT+F10 does anything (i doubt ACER recovery will work according the above info, but what the hell .. give it a try).

My sister quot inherited quot a used Acer Aspire z from a friend of hers It was not at all well maintained so I decided the best thing to do would be to wipe it clean and install Windows XP I had a copy of XP already I had a few hang ups finding drivers but after some work I got everything functioning correctly When on, not turn Aspire will in Acer when 5610z plugged even I Acer Aspire 5610z will not turn on, even when plugged in finally got it working the battery would not hold a charge for more than about ten minutes it worked fine while plugged in but once unplugged the battery drained quickly I charged it for an entire night after I finished the downgrade and it still would not hold a charge so I m assuming the battery is shot And now today the laptop will not turn on at all even when plugged into a power source It worked fine as recently as last night but now the power indicator comes on for about a second and then turns back off A few things I m pretty sure the previous owner of this laptop did not maintain it very well at all and hardly ever used it so the battery was hardly ever charged I don t know if this makes a difference When he gave it to her he did not have the original charger so I had to buy one online The power supply I bought gets very hot when it s connected Again I don t know if this makes a difference but I found it odd I read somewhere that I should remove the battery and the power supply hold the power button for seconds re-insert the main power power on the computer and insert the battery I followed those steps but they did not work I suspect the battery is just shot But before I go and drop on a new battery I would like to make sure there is nothing else I can do I apologize for the lengthy post but I wanted to be as thorough as possible Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks nbsp

A:Acer Aspire 5610z will not turn on, even when plugged in

I would agree its a battery problem too.

Double check your power supply voltages and laptop power socket for damage, Other than that. New battery

Last night I put my Acer Aspire 4810TZ to hibernate and today, approx. 10 hours later, I tried to turn it on and nothing happens. When the charger is plugged in the charging light turns on to indicate it is charging (orange) but other than that it is completely unresponsive.I have tried removing the battery and plugging it into the power source like that and still nothing happens.I read somewhere that hibernation mode can cause prolonged periods of unresponsiveness in Acer Aspires and that it should be disabled but I couldn't find any information on how to get it to turn on.Any and all help will be appreciated.

A:Acer Aspire 4810TZ won't turn on after hibernation

Unplug and remove the battery. Hold down the start button for 60 seconds. Plug in and try.

A:Acer Aspire S7-392 wont turn on blinking power led

tried it didnt work. I have decided that its about time i put it into trash. The thing has been in and out of repair shop over 2 years. I have never had laptop that broke so easily without fault from user. Did you know First time i bought this with in 3 weeks speakers stopped working. than after 2 months whenever i turn it on it does disk check up. and into 6 months the whole thing died. it was under warranty so sent it to acer repair shop. got it back every thing worked at first. but in first week speaker stopped working again along with 1 usb port. within the 2 years i had this already spent enough for a new ultrabook. Even though my friends said acer is not a good, the thing looked so nice, so bought it anyway. I learned my lesson will never buy an acer product.

Hi, I unplugged my computer a couple of weeks ago and returned today to turn it back on, unfortunately getting no response at all. Ive tried a different power cable and a different outlet. I've followed directions given to somebody else on here, unplugging....holding power button for 40 seconds....plugging back in and trying to power on, with no luck. The computer is about 3 years old. Is there any advice you can give me?

My Uncle bought an Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition VN7-591G-792U. He sent it to me in the Philippines. It is brand new, I got it from March. Windows 10 was installed and was updating like normal. I used it for about only 2 months before like a few days ago where it turned off by itself and now it won't turn on. I started up the laptop, everything was normal and I opened up Google Chrome. I was browsing Facebook and it turned off by itself, there's no lights on the side even if it was plugged in. I tried disconnecting and connecting the battery, holding the power button, holding the battery reset button, holding them both, and it does nothing. Anyone has a solution for this? Sometime this month, we will be going to the US amd my uncle will probably have to replace or fix it since he still has warranty. Thanks!

hi Unknown Soldier here. My real name is Harris, im from Singapore and im currently facing this issue regarding the fact that whenever i start my Acer Aspire Z5610 touch screen computer, the screen always turns black, and thus not allowing the computer to respond or start up. Though it works sometimes and i get to use it quite often by restarting it many times, the same problem randomly strikes back and i have to go through the same old frustration of restarting it many times to get it to work properly. The computer does not work now so i really need some suggestions to get it to function normally other than send it for repair which would waste a lot of money and time. My problem definitely has got nothing to do with whatsoever video or graphics card issue. Click on the attachment below to see the computer that i use. Thank you

A:New Help Bad with a Acer Aspire Laptop! Please

I am not sure what else I could do to see if in fact the drive was badIf you have another computer and by using a USB external enclosure, you may be able to check the status of both the new and old laptop drives. There maybe a chance that your hard drive is not well seated and needs to gently press while powering up your laptop and then try checking on your BIOS utility. Check also for any dented pins. Have you tried reapplying thermal paste for the CPU and look for any oxidation and burnt components?

First of all try disk clean up > run that
Then again but this time choose 'clean up system files'

Run CCleaner Slim (only in its 'default' settings) and run the cleaner. Use its 'Tools' to remove all but the latest System Restore point.

Other things to free space is do a clean uninstall (using something decent like Revo Uninstaller in its Advanced mode) of any programs you don't need or use.

Hello NiQui and welcome to TSF!

Have you tried booting in Safe-Mode?.
If not you can try this by holding F8 when Windows is about to boot and a menu should appear. You should select " Boot in Safe Mode". See if you manage to get to desktop with this.

Hi

My first post and its a problem

basically I have a Acer Laptop when it goes into standby and you try to go back to desktop you get a bluescreen of death and reboots but it happens to fast to see the error.

Other times it will just randomly freeze for no reason.

Sometimes when you press the power button all you get is a black screen.

I have installed winxp home and pro editions, done all service pack updates and driver updates. Updated the bios. and still the problems persist.

Has any one got a solution or faced the same problems.

thx for reading.

A:my acer aspire E15 laptop is not starting up

Since it shut down during gaming (which creates more heat), the laptop may have overheated. When that happens, it shuts down automatically to prevent permanent damage to the components.So let it cool down for a few hours then try again.If it still won't power up you'll have to take it to a laptop repair shop.

A:Laptop GPU replacement -- Acer Aspire V5 (possible y/n?)

There's no way to upgrade a video card in a laptop unless it's something from ASUS, MSI, Alienware, (If you're lucky)

But even if you could, the upgrade would probably be anywhere from $200-$600+ maybe even more. Old 7900GTX Go cards are still fetching roughly $100 on Ebay

Hi Dave, and welcome to TSG.

Check if the Dell monitor has any buttons for activating an on screen menu that allows you to choose which input it should use.

If you need further assistance, it would help us to help you if you told us the exact model number of the Dell monitor.

I'm having a few issues with my laptop. I'm running Windows 8.1. Can someone please help me figure things out? 1.) Can't access Acer Explorer, says there's no program that can open it!! what?!2.) Keeps randomly shutting down. Yes I've run my virus program and made sure the fans running and clean. Still, however gets hot, so I'm wondering if I might need to replace the fan. How can I know for sure?3.) Keeps telling me I need to update or install the flash player but when I do, it says I have the most updated version.4.) Can play and hear music played by my media player, but when I try to burn the file to a disc it says either to install cd/dvd burner or the format is wrong. I have a cd/dvd burner installed and it works just great except when I download music from the internet and try burning them to a cd.

Hello everyone!
I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question but ...
I have Acer aspire e1-571 laptop for a while now more than one year. Recently it started to boot really slow. Not the windows part but the time between pressing the power button and Acer logo appearing.. Was very long about 10 to 20 min. I searched for a solution, and I tried removing the bios battery and putting it back. But now it dosntieven boot up anymore. I waited on it all night all nothing. The lights are on I even hear the fan but nothing the screen doesn't show anything.
Could anyone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.
 

A:acer aspire laptop won't boot up.. help !

Try reseating the memory. If you have more than one stick, try booting with just one stick, and then alternating. Sometimes, it can be the memory slot itself, so try the other.

Also, be sure to have all external devices unplugged: USB sticks, hard drives, mice, etc.

I've had this since it was new, but I got a more powerful asus laptop for christmas last year.However, thats waiting for a new power supply.

This Acer was never THIS bad. Even resuming from sleep mode, the mouse lags badly, sometimes freezing for a few seconds. Chrome takes forever to load. Facebook freezes often. Even using the start menu, it lags. The final straw was when I went to delete a small text document, the entire laptop froze solid and needed to be rebooted.

You guys have helped me in the past, so i'm sure its possible to be fixed. I have tried: uninstalling things, Malwarebytes, Ccleaner.

Hello folks,

My sister's Acer Aspire 3002LMI has recently ceased to power on whatsoever. Bought in '05 and run mostly from the mains, it suddenly acted as though it was running out of battery - despite being plugged into the mains - and went into hibernation.

By the time she showed it to me, pressing the power button would just make the battery charge LED flash 8 times - nothing else. Now, a few days later, absolutely nothing happens when I press the power button.

The problem occurs regardless of whether the battery is in the laptop. She never used the laptop without the battery in - as it formed part of the base - so whether it ever worked without the battery is not certain. I've also tried using another power cable, to no avail.

So, any ideas what the cause of this problem could be? Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Rob

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.

In particular run a full Disk Check from DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options Command Line, followed by SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail to help work through the other steps in order until if necessary you run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall. You can rescue your files at any time using that step.

You can hear the fan sound, I've tried taking out the battery for 2 mins and holding down the power button but it still doesnt work. Also pressing F1,F2,F3.. does nothing to it.
When I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Delete,it goes on to the boot menu page, but it doesn't show any option. It says 'restart the system'

A:Acer Aspire 5335 laptop will not boot up

First, we can suggest a number of security softwares that are absolutely free and are excellent in protection.

Second, there is the possibility you'll need to do a reformat due to infection. However, first go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the Updated 8 Step sticky. At this point it doesn't see you'll be able to necessarily do the steps but at least familirize yourself with the process.

Then on that forum, if you cannot do the steps, post your issues and make sure you tell them about the virus.

Updated to the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers
Uninstalled and re-installed the sound device
Updated to latest Bios
Restored to factory settings
Clean format and re-install of XP Pro SP2

None of these worked. Could it be a hardware problem?
