Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

I have an acer machine that went down on me. The

\015 I have an Acer machine (I think it is a 5100 -don't have it with me now) that went down on me. The power is running (although I know I have a weak battery) but the monitor just turn white (light) but I can't see anything. I hear it boots up and can use the keyboard to turn it off (using the key with the windows logo + the direction & enter keys. What could possible go wrong? Is it repairable or is it better for me to get a new one (quite an expense to me). How could I get back the data on the hard drive?\015

Answers :

Sounds like the hard drive boot sector is damaged. You can remove the drive and put in into an external casing and via a USB connection get the data off onto another working computer. Then (if my diagnoses is correct) you can get a new hard drive for the laptop and install windows etc again and be mobile again

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge. Battery charger charges the battery only when the computer is switched off and it isn't possible to run the computer using the charger

Monitor: if the inverters were blown, you would be unable to use clamps as a workaround. I suspect a lose or broken contact to the display wafer caused by rough handling of the laptop. This is delicate stuff, you cannot repair without specialized too ... Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
