Acer :: Aspire 8920G - Black Screen -> Alt+f10 Failure

Jul 27, 2009

I have an Aspire 8920G laptop.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled (with no installation nor recovery disks delivered).

I accidently hit the arcade button on the cinedash panel, instead of the power button. The computer started directly up into arcade deluxe, after a short install. Nice feature

I thought, and choose to exit arcade through the exit feature. Then I noticed that the computer prepared to hibernate, but instead it shut off after it finished.

After turning the computer on, a small complaint about improper closing the computer popped up, and I choose to start windows normally. Now the boot loader ran, and when I expected the logon screen, instead I met a black screen with a working mouse cursor. I eventually had to force power down, since crtl alt delete didn't work.

Since then, all boot options, safe mode etc leads to the same black screen.

Vista looks like it's going to boot normally then goes to a black screen with a working mouse pointer. The hard disk light just pulses every couple seconds.

I tried extracting the battery but it doesn't work.

I tried to alt+f10 - Vista Recovery page, so it gives me menu called "Edit Boot Options". There is the path to winload.exe and this:
"Partition: 2
Hard Disk: b8f0ffa4

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
]"
That's all what I have when I press ALT + F10.

I could type "Enter" = nothing happened
"Esc" = shutdown the system
"F8" = go to recovery page.

Hit f8:

Goes to a "Vista system recovery" or something like that, i'm not quite sure what its name was. Anyway it had about 6 options, including "Get windows to check for and correct the faults on your disk" in a little bit more high tech talk. And "Restore to a earlier point". Since the "Checking and correct faults" said it was recommended, i thought i'd go for that.

It ran its tool, told me to click the restart button. Runs it again, tells me to restart again.

And now it enters its final state - Its virtually dead :|. If i turn it on, it will go to the black screen, that talks about an improper shutdown, with the options for Safe Mode, Safe mode with networking.. etc. Any of these 4 options all result in the same black screen displaying only the mouse cursor.

I was not trying to install or upgrade nothing, was not trying to change form vista to xp or so.

I have not deleted any hidden partition (as far as I know...)

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...

HP Mini 210-1060EV Display :: Black Border - Screen Shifted Down After Power Failure

Jun 19, 2013

HP Mini 210-1000 ... Actually it's HP Mini 210-1060EV PC  
 
From product specifications: Display: 25.6 cm (10.1") Diagonal WSVGA LED HP BrightView Infinity Widescreen Display BID (1024 x 600)
 
Battery has been dead a long time. My display drivers  and BIOS have recently been updated from HP website. After a power failure and a restart, the display looks weird. It was shifted about an inch downwards with a black border at the top, over which the mouse will not go, and the taskbar is not visible as is off the bottom of the screen.
 
When I go to Screen Resolution from Windows by right clicking on desktop resolution is set as 1024x768, when I click on Advanced Settings, Monitor tab,  Monitor is set as Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1024x768 60Hz). When I change to 1024x600 it looks blurry and stretched vertically, but the screen is still shifted downwards with black border on top. 
When I enter Intel Graphics Settings I can do the same changes as in the Windows dialog box (640x480, 800x600,1024x600,1024x768).  

In the Aspect Ratio Options when I select Fullscreen (No-Border) the  Black border is fixed but the screen still appears streched vertically but the screen is cut off at the bottom with no Taskbar visible. Re-installed graphics driver as well as a few Monitor Type Drivers from windows, nothing changes. When I turn the notebook on, the HP Quickweb screen also appears as a 1024x600 stretched vertically with no black border at top but going off the display at the bottom.
 
It appears that  Windows and Hp Quickweb see the display as 1024x768 60Hz after the power failure. Before that, I had installed some Windows Updates but nothing related to Display drivers. I only had a System Restore point from earlier that day (very low free hard drive space?) but that didnt do anything.
 
Guessing it's a registry/driver problem since no pixels are bad and the black border on top is fixed in Aspect Ratio Options when I select Fullscreen (No-Border).

HP Compaq Presario CQ61 Display :: Black Screen On Power Up - BIOS Corruption Failure?

Nov 15, 2012

I have a Compaq Presario CQ61 Product: VM9496Q2X Model: CQ61-319WM, that has a black screen when I power up.  The wifi button stays red and the caps lock flashes twice.  I believe this indicates a BIOS corruption failure.  I have tried resetting by unplugging and removing the battery, and holding the power button for 30 seconds.  I have tried the f8 key and the esc repeatedly at power up. I have also tried pressing the windows and B key along with the power key but nothing worked.

There is no screen saver applied.  This is probably user error, but how do I resolve without having to take it to the repair shop.

Acer Aspire 8920G :: Random Shut Down

Oct 6, 2014

I have an Acer 8920G Win 7 Pro which is randomly shutting down only in when connected to 'AC' power. It does not happen when using 'battery' alone or in 'safe mode'. I've tried,investigated, and corrected all overheating issues, cleaned fans, changed AC power supplies, disabled graphics card, to no avail. All drivers are up to date. This has been happening over a period of 3 months now. Can not use the laptop except when battery is charged or in safe mode.

Acer :: 8920G - Randomly Turns Off/has A Blue Screen

Jul 2, 2009

for the past 3 days my Acer 8920G has been acting..very strange. It randomly turns off/has a blue screen, then I can't use it for 6-10 hours before it works again, but then only for 30 min then repeats. I've checked the temperatures for the HDD/CPU/GPU on the time I was on, and the HDD was 58C, CPU and GPU were around 50C (With FF3.5, iTunes, MSN and Vuze running). I've taken off the back panel and removed the dust but that didn't do anything at all. This morning I turned it on after leaving it upside down (back panel on) to vent all the air (if I left it open more dust would've gone in) and it wouldn't even hit the desktop. Kept crashing when it hits the desktop (that's basically what happens when I try and turn it on after it has a blue screen or turns off). So I opened the back panel and let my hand hover over the components - no heat what so evr radiated from it, which means it can't have overheated...right? Now I can only run it with the back panel off, which I'm doing now in a well ventilated area.

Acer Aspire E1-522 :: Black Screen Of Death - Cannot Get Into BIOS

Sep 2, 2014

I have a relatively new Aspire E1-522.   Was in the middle of watching Netflix when it conked out.   Now, when I turn the power on very little happens...the blue light comes on, the fan comes on and the screen backlight comes on...and then goes out...and then comes on again...etc.
 
Basically, turning it on doesn't even get to the Acer logo.  Cannot get into the BIOS by any means.   In my research this sounds exactly like the Aspire One black screen of death, although I haven't found references to it with respect to the E1.
 
I think the BIOS is fried. How to re-flash it on the E1-522?  I cannot boot windows, so I can't use the self-extracting EXE.   I need to be able to flash it from the bare bones hardware like the fix for the AA1 ....

Acer Aspire 5517 :: Screen Turns Black After 1 Second

Jan 15, 2015

I have repaired a few laptop in my time so when a friend said his screen was black but he could read it with a flashlight I guessed right away it was an inverter problem.
 
I got a new inverter off of *bay, carefully removed the display bezel, swapped in the new inverter and powered it up.  Successfully boots into Windows !  Shut it down, screwed the inverter down, put the bezel back on and now the display comes on for 1 second, just long enough to see that "Acer" splash screen, and then goes black.  Yes you can still read the screen with a flashlight.
 
Checked the power in and out wires, they look good. Re-seated both connectors.  unscrewed the inverter board from the display so that it is :floating". Nothing.  Swapped in the old inverter and it acts the same ?

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 5754 :: How To Flash BIOS When Getting Black Screen

Mar 7, 2015

I attempted to update my bios for my Acer Aspire 5745 notebook and chose the wrong file.  The computer is giving me a black screen now. When I push the start button the lights come on the fan blows and thats all. I found a few sits on line giving me the procedure to flash an aspire one system. Here is the steps I took to do so to no avail.
 
1. When to the acer site and put the SNID number to my laptop to pull up my suggested downloads for my system.
2. I downloaded the file to my working computer.
3. I extracted the file and opened the file that said DOS.
4. I renamed the file zg5ia32.fd
5. checked my flash drive to make sure it is set to ( FAT ).
6. Transferred the file to the flash drive.
7. Pluged in the flash drive to my dead laptop while it was pluged into a powersorce.
8. Held down the FN and ESC buttons while pushing the power buttons.
9. Released the FN and ESC buttons when I noticed the power light blinking and the flash drive light up.
10. Waited for over 15 min.  but had no success.
 
I also opened up the backside to the laptop and removed the little battery that was plugged it with a small white connector assuming it was the cmos battery but still nothing happened.

Acer Aspire 5742z :: BIOS Update Black Screen

Feb 16, 2015

I've spent 3 days and countless hours trying to find the solution to a black screen after attempting to update my daughter's Acer Aspire 5742Z from the bios it had to the latest bios available on the site (1.30).  I ran the windows version from windows and I clicked thru the various dialogue windows appearing to be on its merry way.  At one point, the screen went black and after about a half hour it stayed that way so I unplugged it b/c it wasn't responding to the power button nor the ctrl-alt-delete. I've tried using a usb stick formatted to both fat and fat32 containing the dos version of the bios files and the full contents from a windows 98 startup floppy disk i dusted off from retirement.  I also tried a cdrw and cdr only containing the bios files.  In all attempts, the hdd led and either the optical drive or usb stick led blinked a little before dying out and nothing more.

Acer Aspire 5542 :: Black Screen - Power LED Button Is On

I have an ACER Aspire 5542g and i've had a problem with it lately, when I turn it on, the fan starts running, the harddrive turns on, and the CD drive starts up, the power button LED is on, but all that shows up is a black screen. I have tried the "Take out the charger and battery, hold the power button for 30 seconds", tried switching the RAM, tried taking out the harddrive, and all have been a fail. And I am honestly confused, because some of the time (rarely) it will turn on, and literally everything about the laptop is perfectly fine, and its like nothing happened. Until you turn it off.
