Acer :: Aspire 5315 - Powered Off Suddenly

May 13, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop, which is just over a year old. A few weeks ago, it powered off suddenly. I tried to power it back on, but it wouldn't. I tried booting it with/without the battery and AC adapter, but no luck. The power light does not come on, and fans do not turn on. However, the battery charging light was unaffected, and still turned from amber to green when the battery finished charging.

Then, a few days later, I pulled the battery out and left it out of the laptop overnight, and when i put it back in in the morning, the laptop powered on again.

But - after a couple hours of running fine again, the laptop shut off suddenly again, and wouldn't turn back on. I got it running again after 10 minutes of fiddling around.

Since it was on again, I shut it down using windows and it turned off normally, and powered back on first try. I tried this several times and it always powered back on first try when it was properly shut down using windows. At this point, I assumed everything was good to go, but the laptop shut down again suddenly and I haven't been able to get it turned on again for 2 days now.

Even when the laptop won't start, the battery still charges using the AC adapter; I can tell from the LED on the front of the laptop.

Acer :: Aspire One Won't Stay Powered On

Dec 26, 2008

I just received my new Aspire One (I actually bought two from Circuit City) and one will NOT boot up. (The second works fine!) I've fully charged the battery. It will boot up to a warning message that a password is incorrect. (It won't stay on the screen long enough to read completely.) The machine seems to loop through the startup process a couple times, and then just powers down. I've tried stopping at SETUP (F2), but it will power down in that screen, too.

Acer :: HDD - With Aspire 5315

Nov 26, 2008

I got a problem with my Acer Aspire 5315. The HDD is shown in the bios but won't show in Vista most of the time. The HDD is completely formated, including the Acer partition. So recovery is not an option.

The problem is strange because it is not consistent. Sometimes I am able to acces the drive and install Vista. But then the next day,when i try to boot again, i only see a cursor after the Acer boot screen.

I've tried running in IDE mode. I also tried replacing the HDD with a new one. I installed vista with the correct Intel driver.

I also tried running Linux live cd. It also sees the HDD drive correctly but when i try to acces it, the program freeses.

I'm affraid something is wrong with the I/O controller, or it is a loose cable.
If you think otherwise, please let me know. If not, i'd like to know how I can check the HDD cable.

Acer :: Does The Aspire 5315 Have An Internal Fan

Feb 26, 2009

My aspire 5315 over heats occasionally and when i am using it it shuts down due to heating problems. I use "notebook hardware control 2.0" to monitor my hardware, and at time it shows my cpu temp to be 98 degree centigrade, at 99 it shuts down.

So what im asking that is this a normal issue, do you guys owning this model have this problem as well.

Today i used "Speedfan" to find out any info about my cpu fans, but it gave me no info, like no fans found.

Can some one install this app in their aspire 5315 and tell me if u get the same results.

edit: k even if someone else does not have this app or does not want to install it. i stilll find it a bit odd for a laptop to be with out a cpu fan, dont u.

like this is how the normal operation of speddfan should look like, " i ran it on my desktop pc"

and here is the one running on my acer

Acer :: Flashing Aspire 5315

Mar 31, 2008

I downloaded the new BIOS for the 5315 and went to run it tonight. It said I had 1.22 and the new BIOS was 1.25. I double clicked the BIOS program, said to close all other programs so I did, and then clicked START. It got about 1/10 of the way through and then said something about a read error (I can't remember exactly). It completely froze my system where I couldn't even force power off by holding the power button. Acer tech support said that flashing the BIOS isn't covered under warrantee and it's $100 to send it in and get them to replace the mobo. He also kept saying that there are ways to fix this myself, just to look online. I have tried force powering it off by unplugging the power and unplugging the battery. Now it won't turn on at all.

Acer :: Aspire 5315 RAM Limit

Nov 8, 2008

The instruction booklet says there is a 2GB limit, and that I can only use two 1GBs. That sucks because it comes with two 512MBs. Is this true, or could I go buy a 2GB DDR2 and replace one of the 512MBs? It's a Acer Aspire 5315-2153.

Acer :: My Aspire 5920 Died Suddenly

Mar 14, 2010

I had left the Acer plugged into the power socket in the wall. There was a power problem in our building and the electricity went and came back about 4-5 times over a span of 30 mins. This has happened before so I paid no attention to it. However, after the electricity supply stabilized, I casually looked to see that the charging lights on the Acer was not on. I unplugged the machine from the wall and tried to start it up - nothing happened. I took out the battery waited for a few minutes, put it back in and tried to start it up - again, nothing happened. I took out the battery and plugged the machine into the power socket in the wall and tried to start it up - again, nothing happened. As it stands, the Acer is dead.

The specs are T6660 (I am not quite sure about this but its something close), 2GB RAM, 250 GB HDD, Vista Home, integrated graphics (X3100).

One other point. You know the power brick from Acer has a green light on it which comes on when you have it plugged into the power socket on the wall. When I attached the power chord to the machine, the green light becomes dim and flickers. However, when I disconnect it from the machine, but keep it plugged into the power source on the wall, the light is on as it should be.

Acer :: Aspire 5735Fan Is Suddenly Noisy

Jan 4, 2009

I bought this laptop about a month ago from PC World. I hadn't had any problems with it and thought that I had made a great choice. Now, all of a sudden the fan makes a loud and very annoying noise (similar to that of a drill) for about 2 minutes and the stops. This happens when I turn it on and off too. Nothing I do seems to make any difference and it is happening more regularly now than three hours ago when it started.

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Wont Power On Via AC

Jan 2, 2010

I've got an Acer Aspire 5315 and for some reason the laptop has stopped working correctly. The laptop will turn on and work fine when the battery is in, but when I try and charge the battery from the PSU plugged in nothing happens and the battery is starting to drain. I've taken the battery out and tried to power the laptop up but there seems to be no power getting to the laptop. The PSU is showing a green light on the block. I have also been advised that it could be the AC socket on the laptop, but I've now replaced this and its still not working.

I haven't got another PSU. Could there be any other reason why the laptop wont turn on?

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Recovery Failed

Mar 1, 2009

Problem-- When you Turn on my acer 5315 laptop a blank black screen comes up after the acer logo appears. If you press any key a loud beep noice sounds.

Solutions I have Tried-- Well i started with using the preloaded restore to factory defults and I got an error message at about 99 percent. The error was- Restore Failed- Reason oxd0000001d - or close to that. I figured maybe the backup partiton was screwed up so I pulled out the old recovery cd's I purchased from acer. The same thing showed up. I then figured i should call acer. I called and they told me to use the acer post disk formatter. I tried that and it still did not help the problem. I have no where else to turn so thougt maybe you guys could help.

By the way This is some of my system specs--

Acer 5315-
Hitachi 80GB hard drive-
Windows Vista Basic

Acer :: Bad BIOS Flash On Aspire 5315

May 21, 2008

Second time this has happened. I've downloaded the BIOS update from Acer's website.

Closed all programs, disabled the antivirus and went to flash it. Right after clicking start I get a Verify Error and the sytem freezes and is a dead unit. First time this happened they tried to tell me it was something like $150 to fix even though I did everything right. Now I went to do it again, same thing. Now Acer is telling me it will cost $450 to fix it. It's only 3 months old. They are also saying they are not responsible for anything downloaded from their web site.

So, couple questions. Has anyone successfully flashed their BIOS to 1.34? Does anyone know where you can buy motherboards cheap?

Acer :: Aspire 5315 New Graphics Card

Mar 5, 2009

I've got an Acer Aspire 5315 with the Mobile Intel GMA X3100 in it as standard on the motherboard. Granted this isnt a great card for a lot of (or any) modern games, but I was wondering if it's possible to have another (better) graphics card put in it?..

Maybe a better processor too, because its got a Celeron 550, but the graphics card is priority at the mo.

Acer :: Aspire 5315 MXM Graphics Upgrade

Jul 17, 2009

This is my Aspire opened up

This is a close up where you can see that we can paste a MXM socket (230 pin's)

Now, if I paste a MXM soket it would look like this

But...

If I introduce a graphic card into this new port added by "me". Will my software recognice it?

The bios an windows can sopport it?

I know problems about heat (can be solved) but the important thing is the bios recognition and how to disable x3100 default integrated graphics right?

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Service Manual

Nov 4, 2007

I need to know how to get the memory cover off. Even after removing the four screws it acts like one corner near the indent by the RAM icon is snapped into it or glued down. The cover is huge, over half the bottom of the case.

I'm also interested in upgrading the 1.73 Ghz Celeron M 530 if it's possible. Eventually I plan to upgrade the DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive to a DVD burner, so the manual will be handy for that too.
