Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Acer Aspire not booting

\015 Running on Win Vista Ultimate x64.Computer was shut down normally last night.This morning, when turned on, HDD led and DVD led keep flashing intermitently. Power and battery leds are lit normally. Power button also lit.DVD drive keeps making noise as if it was reading a disc, although no disc is inserted on DVD tray.Nothing shows up on screen (remains as if it was turned off); no BIOS or OS error messages.Tried the hard reset (remove battery, then hold Power button for 30 secs, release, connect AC adapter and turn on). Same thing happens.Any help is greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

I'm inclined to believe something is going on with the DVD drive, perhaps a I/O cable or driver issue, it just seems like what you said about the drive sounding like it's trying to read is a clue, what I would try if you have not already ,is since you said you can get to get to the Bios usually the default for boot sequence is CD/DVD drive first unless you change it, see if you can change the boot sequence from DVD drive first to HDD first and see if you can bypass it, then it might just boot, if that works then that was the cause,I see no other reason why the Drive should be trying to read other than the boot sequence. if not then it might be more complicated and could be a hardware issue somewhere,

Hoep this helps.
