Acer Aspire 5740 :: Does Not Boot - Blanks Out After Welcome Screen

Oct 27, 2014

I am having a problem with my 5740-5513 laptop. When I press the power button it shows up the Acer welcome screen and blanks out and sort of powers again and shows up Acer welcome screen. This keeps happening in a loop. 
 
I dont hear any RAM or DISPLAY beeps or hard disk activity. I am able to press F2 and go in BIOS. I do see HDD being available in the boot order settings. Not sure, if this is a static entry or only show up if it is detected. 
 
This was brought in 2010 so dont have the warranty cover. Do I need a BIOS update? btw, this laptop was working fine and suddenly stopped working.

Acer :: Aspire 5740: GFX Card

Apr 28, 2010

Acer Aspire 5740-5847 - Core i3 330M 2.13 GHz - 15.6" TFT specs and Laptop specifications - CNET Reviews

I have that laptop but mine is the upgraded 4gigs from 3 gigs of RAM. I'm extremely impressed with its performance so far!

My question is: Is it possible with this laptop/model to get an aftermarket graphics card? Or is that out of the question? I guess I'm just trying to get the best possible game performance out of this notebook.

Acer Aspire 5740-6025 :: New Hard Drive - Windows Setup Could Not Configure

Jan 5, 2015

The hard drive on my Aspire 5740-6025 went bad and needed replaced. I purchased a new HD and installed using the recovery disks. Everything went fine until it got to the Windows screen that said "Setup is applying system settings." At that point I got a message saying "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware." How can I get the new hard drive to work on my system?

Acer Aspire E1-570 :: Blank Screen After Boot

Feb 13, 2015

2 days ago I had trouble accessing the internet on my E1-570. Windows Explorer kept throwing up a fault and restoring the page. Eventually I loaded Safari and then Firefox and resolved to sort the problem with Windows Explorer some time in the future. This may be unrelated to what happened the next night. Started the E1 and got the usual "Acer, Explore beyond limits" screen and spinning dots, then got the login screen - input password then return. Spinning dots for much longer than usual then blank screen. I can see the cursor arrow so the screen itself must be functioning. Lights on the front are working - AC, battery and HDD. I have had the machine 14 months and it is used exclusively at home so has not been roughly treated.

Acer Aspire E1-572 :: Takes 1 Hour For Boot Screen To Appear

Mar 3, 2015

My Aspire E1-572 suffers somewhat of the dreaded black screen of death. The computer needs about an hour to start, but when windows finally is loaded, it works like a charm.The "F2 for bios screen" takes about an hour to load.I have done a Acer factory reset.Tested the WD-hard disk - No faults, I've run memtest86 - No errors. I've tried to update the bios from Acer's download section, but all I get is error. Like I said, the computer works like a charm, only it takes about an hour for start up.

Acer Aspire 7535-5020 :: Will Not Boot / Black Screen

Nov 22, 2014

I have an Acer 7535-5020 that will not boot up.  A few times prior to this happening it said that Windows was not shut down properly - this was right after a batch of Windows updates was installed.Now, it will not start at all. I have tried pressing every F button in hopes of it catching the Bios - we had noticed a few times that it was not set to start from the hard drive and changed it but for some reason it was not holding the changes, we think.I have googled and found that many Acer's (different models) seem to run into this problem and for many, it seems that something called flashing the Bios takes care of the issue. I would like to know which Aspire 7535 model BIOS I need to use as well.  I think there are 2 different models listed.

Acer Aspire 5552g :: Black Screen / Failure To Boot?

Jan 22, 2015

I've now spent many hours of research and troubleshooting to try to fix this issue, both via external sites through google search and here on Acer site.
 
It is the same issue reported many times: Acer 5552g laptop powers on, but does not boot up -I get blank / black screen, fan sound briefly, then idle, and that's the end of. Also, when I do manage to get it going (booting), it seems a totally random event...

Acer Aspire 8930G :: Won't Boot Past Splash Screen

Jan 6, 2015

I have an Acer 8930G, it's knocking on some years (approx 7ish) and this is the first problem I have had with it. When i turn it on, the normal Acer screen shows up and then where it would normally load to windows it just blacks out. There is still power as the all the lights are still working and there is a white-ish light which looks inside the base of the screen. I have looked around on the web and have tried the flashlight on the screen and also removing battery / power cable and holding down the power button for a minute and rebuilding and trying again, but to no avail. I am able to get onto the BIOS screen, and it did look like the boot device in position 1 was the BD drive, I moved this back to the hard drive but still the same....

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 7740-5691 :: Boot Screen Freezes With Pixel Distortion At The Top - Reset BIOS

Oct 21, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire 7740-5691. The boot screen freezes with pixel distortion at the top. I've tried all the restore discs. I found where some people referenced a similar problem with other computers and they were fixed by resetting the bios. I can't figure out how to do that. There's no place for that in the boot settings option and there's no visible coin battery to temporarily remove to reset.

Acer :: 5942/5740 Differences

Feb 23, 2010

I'm in the process of identifying my next laptop to replace my 4 year old aspire and have come across the i5 core 5740 and 5942...

Both have the same processor i5 520
Both have the same graphics card ATI 5650
Both have a BD-ROM/DVD-RW

But the 5740 i've seen at 700 and the 5942 at 940.

Apart from a slightly larger hard-drive, the media board instead of the number pad and the backlit keyboard. What else would does the 5942 have that would constitute a 240 difference?

Does anyone have support in this issue? Basically all I want is to scroll on the touchpad and doubleclick.

Acer Aspire E1 522-3657 :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Oct 11, 2014

I have a Acer E1 522-3657 computer, which my son set-up for me but did not make the recovery disc(s). The unit is just outside of the warranty period when the hard drive failed. The hard drive just makes a clicking noise and after the logo screen appears it goes to a blue screen with a box that has the following message with in, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert recovery Media and Hit any key.....Then Select 'Boot Manager' to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media.
 
I have installed a brand-new Western Digital 1T Sata3 harddrive to replace the Toshia 750 GB original Drive. After turning the computer on and at the logo screen I press and hold F2, this takes me to the InsydeH20 Setup Utility Screen. I see under the "Information" menu that the installed harddrive model and serial number appear. I see in the "Boot" menu, Boot Mode: "UEFI" and Secure Boot: "Enabled".
 
Under the "Exit" menu, Exit Saving Changes is highlighted. When I press F10 a "setup Configuration" box appears asking to save configuration changes and exit now? "Yes" is highlighted to which I hit Enter and are returned to the "Default Boot Device.......page. I then hit ecs twice and are at a black screen with the message No bootable device -- Please Restart system_appearing in the upper left corner of the screen. I then push and hold the power button until the computer shuts off.
 
I have ordered from acer the "Acer E-recovery Media Disc Set", which is specific to the SNID of my computer. I have not attempted to format the new hard drive in any way.  I assume the E-recovery Media Disc Set will handle that operation due to the multiple partitions required.
 
In view of the above situation, do I need to set up the computer in any way before I start to utilize the E-recovery Media Disc set. I assume the Media will be on CD's. The computer was running Win 8.0 which was updated to Win 8.1 and was running very well, very stable.
