Acer Aspire V3-571G :: Pitch Black Screen On Power On With Leds Blinking

Oct 26, 2014

I have an acer aspire v3-571gOn trying to boot up my laptop by pushing the power button, the leds light up and the fan starts ( I can hear it spin) and the laptop starts but the screen remains black and does not even light up. The screen remains pitch black without any change at all.After force-shutdown 12 to 13 times, I rebooted my laptop and the screen suddenly started working.This happened once before as well and I didn't think much of it untill it happened again. I don't understand why the screen randomly chose to black out and not respond until after several restarts.
 
I tried removing the battery, pressing power button for about 30 seconds, rebooting, starting without battery (with power source) and nothing worked. It randomly and unexpectedly started working (just like it had stopped).

Dell :: E1505 Won't Boot, No Post, 3 Indicator Lights + Power Blinking...

Mar 10, 2010

The laptop wouldn't boot. I took the keyboard out to see if I could swab-dry any water, but couldn't really find any in there.

I lightly sprayed around with compressed air and left the laptop open with the keyboard out to try and let it dry out for a few hours, but no dice...still wouldn't boot.

I thought maybe via cell phone logic, it might work again after 24 hours or so. It's been almost three days now and it still won't boot, so I'm pretty sure I fried something. Here's the error code it's giving me .....

Acer :: 5520 Won't Power On

Oct 4, 2008

I am having problems with my brother's acer laptop. It's an Acer Aspire 5520. The first time we experienced this problem I tried removing the battery and I placed the battery back again. I plugged the ac adaptor into another outlet. I was able to get a a greenlight on the battery and on the hard drive. For some reason I am not able to get a greenlight on both indicators. I tried plugging the laptop on another outlet. It seems I'm not able to power it up anymore. Is it the battery or the power adapter?

Acer Aspire One AOD270 :: Jams On Logo After Power On And Does Not Boot Any Further

Nov 5, 2014

My acer aspire one AOD270 is not booting. After I press the power on, it stops on the initial display of the acer logo. Nothing else happens. The F2 key only makes it say "please wait" and forever.

I have tried to discharge capacitance and staff like that. I have tried several keys/hot keys to no avail including the F12 and altGr+F8 Is it the BIOS and what should I do or is it the RAM because I checked on my RAM and it is in the right place

Acer :: Aspire 7220 Flashing Power Light, Doesn't Boot

Feb 26, 2010

I'm trying to fix my fathers laptop so he won't have to spend money on a new one. Here's the problem:

When I press the power button to boot the laptop it does not boot, it just flashes the power light(s) on and off at maybe 1 flash per second. I've tried removing the RAM-sticks one and one, removing the HDD, removing the battery and removing the DVD reader (not all at the same time, of course). None of those helped, it still did the same thing.

Then I tried to blind flash the bios from a CD, the laptop comes on with the fan at full blast, the DVD reader comes on and it stays on, but it never finishes and powers off.

Acer Aspire V3-772g :: Won't Boot - Power Works / Lights Work

Dec 10, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire V3-772g, a relatively new laptop (8 months old), which randomly decided to stop booting.

Windows 8.1Core i7 2.2ghznVidia GTX 760m8gig's of ram (2x4gb)7200 RPM SATA

Was playing a game just fine. Shut down as normal, went to work, came home 8 hours later, attempted to boot - nothing.

Exact problem: Hit power button, power button comes on. Light next to the lightbulb (power light?) Comes on, stays solid. Charging stays solid orange/blue.

HDD light? Flickers. Screen flickers a dark grey color that may be the very initial part of a startup. No acer logo.The screen and HDD light flicker in synchronisation, at the same exact time. You can hear the fans fire up, and the HDD spin up. Screen just flickers about once per second (it's very faint.)

--Heres what I've tried---

-Removing power cord/battery, holding button for 60 seconds 3 times, plugging back in and powering up.
- Almost every varation of that, I have attempted.
-Inserting a new harddrive. Same result.
-Plugging in an external monitor. (Tried VGA and HDMI)
- Power does not transfer to external monitors. Screen still flickers on laptop, no change in behavior.
-Removed 1 stick of RAM - No **BUT** behavior changes slightly. Flickering of screen and HD light reduced to about once every 45 seconds rather than once every second.
-Removed both sticks of RAM - no flickering, no HDD light flickering. Pure black screen.
-Rotated the sticks of RAM - No change.

Also interestingly, with everything normal, if I hold Fn+Esc, the computer will do a new startup process (Screen still black), then after about 20 seconds goes into the normal screen flickering/HDD indicator flickering. Different behavior, slightly.

Acer Aspire 5552G :: Power Light But Only A Black Screen On Startup (boot Sector On HD)

Dec 5, 2014

I had exactly the same problem with my Acer Aspire 5552G with win7, I tried all things that was online e.g. New battery, Flashing bios, Fn + esc without battery when trying to start the computer and so on.
 
It started now and then and worked perfect but when I shut it down again it could take me up to 50 tries to get it started.
 
The problem was issues with the boot sector on the hard drive!
 
Finally I made an Win7 repair disc and started from.
 
I also checked for errors on the hard drive and it repaired some sectors before starting windows.
 
After that it works like when it was new. The computer was bought January 2011.

Acer :: ( Aspire 1654) Blinking Battery Light

Sep 10, 2008

My battery life was appauling (15 mins), so I decided to do a full discharge and recharge (Nothing to lose by doing it)

After this was done I loaded back into windows and checked my battery monitor, unplugged my laptop and waited 10 minutes.

It was still at 100% 10 minutes later.

I looked in another utility and it was reporting ludicrous values for Full Capacity - 920,643mWh (At this point I became very scared of the prospect of a Lithium Fire).

I worked out the capacity of my battery:

wattHour = ampHour * Volts

Ah of my battery is 2.0, and it provides 14.8 Volts

Max battery capacity: 29.6wH (29600mWh)

The program is reporting 29834mWh (Which seems like a perfectly acceptable value considering not all batts are the same)

Seems like the battery is still good... (It's certainly running longer than before, up to 30 mins so far).

I'm sure my battery is dying (3 years old), just this makes it seem like it isn't?

Acer :: Aspire 5520 Shutdown

Sep 2, 2009

I have a Aspire 5520-5912 laptop I am trouble shooting for a relative that randomly shuts down just before, or shortly after it boots to windows.

I have tested the hard drive in my Desktop and scanned it for viruses, swapped out the memory, re applied thermal paste on the cpu heat sink and made sure it was not clogged with dust.

I think I have it narrowed down to a bad MB or CPU but was wandering if anyone else has had any issues like this and what the problem was.

Jan 20, 2008

I have a new OTB acer aspire 5520, and on initial booting everything worked sweetly but when i am trying to access my crystal eye cam on YM or any IM programs it says the webcam is not connected, Now I checked device manager and there is no webcam, so i installed the driver from the erecovery management tool I tried first the BISON driver and utility without success upon installation the program says the computer should display a "found new hardware" message, but nothing showed up. then when it restarted my machine and when i checked on device manager still no cam... next i uninstalled the BISON driver and installed the 2nd one (SUYIN) with the same results. I searched the support and download section of ACER online and tried a third driver the CHICONY and still the same results.. Finally i re installed my system to full factory default and re tried everything still the same problems...

Acer :: Aspire 5520 Shutting Down. NOT Overheating

Mar 11, 2010

I'm in the repair field and I've got a customer's Aspire 5520 that was brought in for overheating. The machine had gone to Iraq, and the customer has indoor dogs..so yes, the fins on the heat pipe were very clogged. Got it all cleaned out, and the machine is still shutting itself off after between 10 minutes and 30 seconds of use.

Now, the machine isn't overheating. SpeedFan and a few other CPU temp utilities are showing the CPU to be around 45*c when the machine is randomly shutting down. 45c is not what I'd consider hot for a Turion x2.

It's not a RAM issue, I've replaced the CPU and am getting the same symptoms.

Acer :: Aspire 5520 - Accidentally Deleted My Whole OS

Sep 18, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop with 320gb hd space .. 8600m gs video card ... 4gb ram... Vista 32-bit oem.. etc.

The problem is that I've just accidentaly deleted my whole OS.
I booted with my Vista 64-bit disc so I could format one of my drives, but I stupidly formatted the wrong one. (the one with my OS)

So now I just installed Vista 64-bit on it, so I could at least do something with my laptop (watch dvds etc.), but I can't get the internet to work anymore because of all the important stuff that got deleted.

What I was using was some public WLAN.

Now it complains that a network adapter doesn't exist.. or something like that. I don't even know what that is.

Is there any way I can fix this myself? I just need to get my internet to work again.

Acer :: Aspire 5520- Wierd Videocard

Sep 15, 2007

Bougth a Acer Aspire 5520 couple of weeks ago, tried to install XP on it, thing crashed. Back on normal Vista (not from recovery) and installed the Nvidia driver(101.54 / 32 bit) which comes wit the acer website and the Nforce driver for network connction etc. Got a Gforce 8400M G with a AMD Turion64 X2(1.8 Ghz)

Now when i try gaming on this thing it's totally wack. Installed Counter-strike and World of warcraft, and both run not good... It's just lagging a lot, not internet lag, graphics lag. I tried downloading some other drivers, but no one seems to be working, mostly getting the message: 'u need a Vista 64 bit for this driver, and u have a Vista 64bit' or 'the hardware for this driver cannot be found'. No idea what to do to fix this problem according to drivers... could be really simple.

Acer :: My Aspire 5520 Laptop Fan Is Extremely Loud

Nov 24, 2008

I've had my Acer Aspire 5520 for about 6 months now, and I did not get a warranty with it. Within the last month or so the fan has begun to get really loud. I have ways of quieting it down temporarily, hanging it off the table or propping it up, but even then the fan will burst into loud, annoying noises suddenly and for no apparent reason. It's kinda like a click-click-click noise, like when you put a strip of paper into a house fan (I know we all did this as a kid...) and the blades hit the paper as they go by, making really obnoxious noises...

So anyway, I'm just wondering if this is fixable, or if it isn't where I can find a replacement fan that works for my computer. I'm a software junky, and I don't really know enough about hardware, so when I went on Newegg and Frys websites I was unable to figure out what kind of fans would work for my laptop. If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it, as I spend a lot of time in the library at my school and I don't want to disturb everyone else in the whole building. In fact, when ever I shop for laptops, keyboards are one of the first things I look at- if the keyboard is too loud or awkward I will NOT buy that laptop.

Acer :: Aspire 5520 No Sound Device Installed

Apr 26, 2010

I have upgraded to Windows 7 x64 (a fair while ago) and rencently it has started to come up with "No sound device installed" over the speaker icon in the sys tray.

This happens about 50% of the time when the computer has started up.
It never has any issues once the sound is working.

When the sound is not working "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" in Device manager is missing and i cant find the "Reltek HD Audio" device any where else in device manager.

It's just had a freash install of the OS and is still not working reliably.

It's got the latest Win 7 x64 drivers from RelTek

Acer :: Aspire 5520 - Can't Access The Location Of My Desktop

Oct 9, 2008

I just started my Aspire 5520 laptop, and when I get to the desktop an error pops up saying that I can't access the location of my desktop (C:Windowssystem32configsystemprofileDesktop)

Only thing which shows up on the desktop is the recycle bin.

The Vista theme is changed to classic and I can't get it back.

Internet doesn't work

Sound doesn't work

I can't open the control panel (in safe mode I can, but not all of the icons are there that should be there)

In the task manager there's only 4 processes running:
eplorer.exe csrss.exe taskmgr.exe (of course) and winlogo.exe

I think I can open all of my programs that I got installed, but basically I almost can't do anything else.

I've been trying to use system restore, but even in safe mode it won't open.

Acer Aspire 5520 :: Recovery Partition Is Deleted

Mar 5, 2015

I bought an Acer Aspire 5520 few years ago. It has a partition with Windows Vista installed on that. Unfortunately that partition is deleted completely so I can not recover my laptop to its factory setting.
 
Is there anyway that I can install that original windows Vista again? I looked behind my laptop and there is a label with a product key. Is that useful?
