Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook ?

Powers up then shuts down after a couple of seconds.

\015 Hi I have an Acer 5315 laptop which has been dropped, the screen is cracked, when you turn it on it powers up for a couple of seconds then shuts down, I would be gratefull if you could sugest the probable cause of the quick shutdown. ThanksGeoff\015

Answers :

Dropping it sounds like it did a load for your screen, wonder what else it broke. Ya I agree change hard drive and cross fingers that, that will fix the issue. If it does then you lucky, alot cheaper. If it's something more serious gooood luck. Do you have any tendencies to spill things on your laptop's keyboard??? Hehe I have that tendency and i have gotten similar results like you said you have. I dont know how much you know about laptop's but they are the most pain to keep it from getting injured. Water on the keyboard can lead to: it not powering up, it eventually does if it gets over heated *warms up the water mess in there. Sometimes will short the wiring for your laptop screen different things.
Apparently you damaged an internal component.
\015\012Your BIOS program performs a POST (Power On Self Test) on each of your computer's devices before it will allow the operating system to boot up. The POST protects your computer from damage to more devices if it runs into a fatal error with one.
\015\012
I suspect that your hard drive may have been damaged. Hard drive is not the first thing checked, which would account for the few seconds that the POST runs. And, hard drives are easily damaged.
\015\012
\015\012SInce your POST shut down your computer so early, it's hard to tell what else might have been damaged, but I would think it would be worth replacing the hard drive and trying to boot the computer up again.

Good luck with it!!
