Problem Bringing up Acer Aspire 3680

\015 My Acer Aspire 3680 has began to require (usually) a three-step process to get it to come up after powering it off for the night. First I turn it on. I hear noise like it's going to come up, but after about 30 seconds, it turns itself off.Next I press the power button again. This time I see the normal Acer screen, but it's a very dim screen. It then turns totally dark while I continue to hear the hard drive working, but it never comes up. So after about a minute. I press the power button and it turns off.Finally (third time) I hit the power button again. This time Acer comes up brightly as is normal, and within a few seconds, I am able to log on.As long as I just lock the keyboard when away from the computer, there are no further problems, but it's when I shut it down, and try to bring it up the next day that the problems begin.At first, I was told it was because I had an external keyboard and mouse plugged in to USB ports. So I unplugged them. And leaving them unplugged until I brought the computer up worked for awhile, but eventually, it begin to require turning it on/off at least 3 times befure it came up, even though no periferials are plugged in.This is a mystery to me and somewhat annoying becuase it takes quite a bit of time to get going in the morning. Any light that anyone can shed on this problem will be greatly appreciated.\015\012\015\012Still need a solution for this problem? Yes\015

Answers :

Hi i think the problem is with the battery or power supply.When you power up the laptop without the external keyboard and mouse everything is ok, yes?Check that the battery is charging properly and that the charger is doing its job.

We have an ACER Aspire 5600 and it randomly loses brightness so its very hard to see the screen. Sometimes if two users are logged on you can get the screen bright on one log on but not on the other. The only thing that works is to restart. ACER ePower Management LCD brightness is set to 100% and yet its not always functioning that way. Our laptop battery has lost its power so we are currently running it off the mains, does that have something to do with it? Thanks Helen
