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....

Sep 21, 2014

My laptop froze and I was unable to do anything so I forced shutdown on it, I rebooted it and I noticed I was on the boot screen for a long period of time (about 10 min).

I ran the System Quick test in the UEFI BIOS and everything passed except

"Hard Drive Short DST Check: FAILED".

Dell Latitude E6500 :: Won't Start Up Past Splash Screen - F8 Won't Work Diagnostics Takes Hours

Jun 19, 2012

I have a Dell Latitude E6500 that I have been using for quite a long time. Recently it started acting up, and now it won't start up past the Dell logo. It simply goes to a black screen with a flashing dash. I've restarted it a few times, tried pushing F8, and gone into F12. I tried the Diagnostics through F12, but it takes an extremely long time and has never finished so far. I tried it again this morning, and periodically throughout the test a message like this has shown up:

Error Code 0123. Msg: Error Code 2000-0123 Msg: Memory - integrity test failed. The given error code and message can be used by Dell Technical Support to diagnose problem. Do you want to continue testing?

Yes or No or Retry

I'm not sure what exactly this means, but it keeps popping up. I would like to get through to start up my computer all the way, but that doesn't seem to be an option. Is there anyway for me to wipe it without F8? My cd slot won't open, and I don't have disks anyways. Is it possible to fix it via USB drives? Or F12?

Acer Aspire V3-571 :: Won't Boot Past POST With HDD Installed

Sep 18, 2014

I have been working on computers for almost 20 years and this has me completely confused. My Aspire V3-571-6643 laptop was working fine until just recently. The system will power on and show the Acer screen and then immediately reboots. It will stay in this reboot loop until manually stopped.
 
I cleaned and reseated the RAM module and also tried it in both slots with no change. I was able to access BIOS and determined the drives and all settings are correct and even reset to factory defaults with no change. I then pulled the HDD to use in a docking station to determine if the drive was salvagable. Everything reads fine and passed both short and long tests via SeaTools. With the HDD installed the system won't try to boot to CD/USB but after removing it the system will boot to CD just fine. I then ran a full scan using Eurosoft Pc-Check and everything is fine. I reinstalled the HDD and immediately get the reboot loop again.
 
At this point the mainboard and HDD both test fine independently but will not work together. My only guess is that the mainboard is no longer supplying enough power for all of the components and crashing when the HDD tries to spin up on boot. That, or the SATA controller is malfunctioning and only working for the ODD.

Acer Aspire E1-572G :: Can't Boot Past Starting Logo

Feb 25, 2015

I have a new E1-572G laptop. Long story short, I installed Win 7 on it, and after that, Ubuntu 14.10. I had issues with bootloader, but after fiddling around with legacy/UEFI booting, secure boot, and things like that, I almost successfully configured the laptop. When I selected the ubuntu uefi bootmgr in the bios, in secure boot mode, I rebooted the laptop for what I thought the last time, but then it did not go past the Acer logo. Only combination that works is ctrl+alt+delete. If I remove the hdd, then the acer logo flashes for half a second, and a black screen appears, with a static console cursor at the left upper corner.
 
I searched a lot in the topic, wanted to reset the bios, but there is no jumper for this, nor can I remove the bios battery. I wanted to reflash the bios, but I could not find proper instructions on this.

Acer :: Aspire 8930G - Just Get A Black Screen And Nothing Else

Jun 8, 2009

My problem is that when i start up my Laptop (its about a week old) i just get a black screen and nothing else. The only way of solving this problem is to take out the power lead and the battery and start it up again. I dont want to have to do this everytime i start up my laptop.

This first happened after my laptop crashed (Frozen screen bussing through speakers) there was a lot running at the time, virus updates, windows updates etc.

Acer :: Aspire 8930G-644G32MN Or The Aspire 8930G-584G32BN

Mar 26, 2009

Seeing as I pretty much made up my mind and want to buy a Acer Aspire 8930G, I hope somebody here can give me some specific advice. Maybe someone who owns one of the laptops (I hope there aren't any differences, depending on the country you live in)

I am looking at the Acer Aspire 8930G-644G32MN or the ACER Aspire 8930G-584G32BN. The first one is 300 Euro's cheaper than the last one. Besides that big difference I can't seem to find any. Did I miss some specific diffence, like do they both have Surround Sound and a BluRay drive and a full HD screen? Does any of the two support DVB-T? Do they both have a 9600 GT graphics card?

The reason why I ask is because I looked through, I don't know how many internetsites with specs and it's amazing how they all differ, obviously mainly copied and pasted from other internetsites. And I really want to get the right one and not regret my purchase after a while.

Jan 14, 2009

I have recently acquired an Acer 7220G notebook. Every morning when I switch it on it freezes on the acer splashscreen. I then reboot and it will always load up on the second go.

I have tried switching it off during the day and on again but is always ok. The problem only occurs when the power has been off for a number of hours. It is getting incredibly frustrating have to startup twice each morning.

Acer :: 8930g (from 2008) Laptop Suddenly Turned Off And Now Won't Boot

Oct 12, 2009

Acer here. It's an older 8920g, but it has a 18.4inch screen and an Nvidia 9500 GS card

Basically here's how it goes:

Laptop unplugged, full battery or near full, placed on a bed (you can see where this is going), playing emulator games

Later, it suddenly turns off.

Upon trying to turn it back straight away, the laptop turns on, but only a blank screen is present.

I recommended to leave laptop off for 2 odd hours. Tried again after 2 hours, same result.

I got hold of the laptop now, basically it turns on, then suddenly flicks off and then back on again, and does.... nothing. The audio/media pad responds though (i.e. hold and mute button is responsive). I tried to take out the battery and turn it on, nothing.

Then I put the battery back in and turn it on, same result. Screen remains black throughout all scenarios.

Acer Aspire V3-771G :: Battery Won't Charge Past 98%

Jan 27, 2015

I have an Acer Aspire V3-771G which I got in 2013. I've had no battery problems before. Earlier this month I noticed that the orange charging light remained on longer than usual. I turned my computer on and noticed that it said that the battery was 98% charged and charging.I have not done the procedure of discharging and recharging the battery three times as mentioned in the manual.

I have not removed the battery since I first installed it (it came with the computer). I don't normally use the laptop on battery power unless it happens to be on during a power outage.I would like to know if I need a new battery or not, as I am concerned as to if the laptop will be continuously trying to fully charge the battery thus wearing it out prematurely.The computer came with Windows 8. I have installed Windows 8.1.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430U Not Booting - Blank Screen Or Never Gets Passed Splash Screen

Nov 25, 2014

System specs:
Lenovo T430U
Intel i5-3427U
8GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600MHz SoDIMM Memory
HDD 500G 7200rpm Toshiba
mSATA 24GB Samsung Cache
Win 8 Pro, upgraded to 8.1
 
I rarely use this machine but a couple of months ago I went to boot it up and found that I was not able to get past the Windows splash screen. Sometimes I don't even get the Windows splash screen, I just get a black screen. Rarely I get a Windows screen saying that it is diagnosing a system problem or something to that effect and I can even get to where it will allow me to do some Windows diagnostics but nothing ever comes of it and the process is extremely slow.
 
I called Lenovo, but of course my machine is out of waranty so the tech just gave me a few pointers and said I could send it in to the depo but the potential repair cost could range up to about 75% of what I paid for the machine in the first place. Anyways, after having me try a few things in the BIOS he suggested that it was likely the hard drive. I mistakenly thought from the time that I bought this machine that the OS was installed on the 24 GB SSD so I ordered a new SSD and swapped it in. This made no difference at all as I have now learned that the mSATA SSD drive is merely for cache to speed up booting.
 
I am afraid that this means the main HDD is at fault, and quite frankly, if I replace it I am going to do a fresh install of Windows 7. But I do have pictures and docs that I would like to salvage if possible.

Acer :: Aspire 8930G

Feb 26, 2009

Basically, the laptop can't find any wireless networks in range, normally it finds several.

I know the wireless router / internet are fine because if I plug the Ethernet cable into the laptop from the router, the laptop goes online and likewise my old laptop will connect to the internet via wireless straight away.

On my new laptop, I've tried several ways to make it find the router but all it says is it can't find anything. I've clicked diagnosis why it can't find anything and it comes up with wireless is currently OFF and needs turning on by a button normally found on the top or side of the laptop.

I've clicked the button and it's 100% on, yet it keeps telling me it's not. The orange wireless light which normally comes on when it is connected isn't coming on either.

Any ideas? I've restarted the laptop and reset the router but nothing and I haven't changed anything, it just went off last night whilst on MSN and browsing eBay.

It's running Windows Vista and using Intel(R) Wireless Wifi Link 5100.

I've tried everything I can think off but end result is always it can't find any networks.

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 :: Hot After Few Hours - Aspire 8930G

Aug 28, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 8930G.

In the last couple of months I've noticed my laptop is getting pretty hot, well actually REALLY . Right now after turning it on for 45min and turning on a game, not a really intense game and I'm not doing anything on it yet, for 10 minutes the temperature reading is already 92 degrees Celsius for the gpu, 23 for the cpu, and 44 for the hdd.

My laptop didn't heat up before only within the last 2 months or so, even though I don't use it that often since I'm mainly on my computer now.

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 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 8930G Owner's Lounge

Dec 31, 2008

I found that we don't have an owner's thread for Acer's latest Gemstone Blue notebook, the 8930G! I got the laptop today and it is a beaut! I got the 6243 model with BluRay.

If anyone here has tweaked it or has some useful tips, post it here! I'm pretty novice in regards to notebooks so it would help me just as much as other members! A quick guide to what to install and uninstall would be greatly appreciated. Also appropriate drivers would be beneficial.

If I'm too new to this board to post an owner's lounge, my apologies.
