Having problems with your Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop ?

Acer Aspire Mini L100 re accidental post

\015 Okay please tell me how you fixed the problem? See right now I am faced with not very many solutions, the few that I have include 1. salvaging the hard drive and memory to be placed in a new computer/cpu unit 2. taking the computer in for a diagnostics test and if it can be upgraded with a new motherboard ending up doing that as well as replacing the processor chip that is inside it depending on if it is an AMD Athlon 2 socket vs 939 (those are now obsolete across the board for all computers) or 3. salvaging the hard drive and encasing it into an external hard drive case as I have had to do with another computer that died both power supply and motherboard problems.So any help on this issue is greatly appreciated. I am not computer savvy totally but I do learn the insides pretty quickly as I was able to break the machine somewhat apart and disassemble parts of it myself. Long story short with a walk through I could pretty much figure out most of it myself. Thanx\015

Hey....i believe i did........lol..............unplug.....open up to access the motherboard...........remove the battery next to the front ports.
\015\012 i am still not completly satisfied, but at least it is working like it was programed to do from the factoery. i installed speed fan to be able to monitor and control the temperatures while i was working on the this one. the smart fan does not react quick enough for my tastes and when the cpu is clocked at factory specs, it takes even longer to ramp up the fan. i am sure there are ways to modify the sotware to make it run cooler and react faster with fan speed, but i haven't the experience, but i amgoing to learn. you can get into the bios on hte restart by preesing the delete key when promted on start up. i cam also get into the bios command with alt f10, but do not know what command line to use to navigate there. any way, i have kind ofnoticed that on most problems like these people want to blam hardware istead of software. i know i thiught this motherboard or some component had failed when i first took the project on of fixing it.i have leaned not to be afraid of trying things, because most software hase default settings that can be returned to if i screw up, i can give you a little more about what seems to be happening wiyh this one before resetting.
\015\012 the power manageent software seemed to be sending wrong voltages to different components which caused them to overheat. i also think the temp sensing software was haywire too because the speedfan temp readings have changed a lot sincei first started using it. bt in any case i have the satisfaction of being able to give my relative back a working computer. the speedfan was a life saver though, because i could control the temp and keep it fom crashing while i was working on it. i would recomend it to any one, but it is freeware that is free because it is still being developed and requires a lot of modifying to make it accurate.............ok............my finger is tired now......lol........jope this helps........also i posted on other similar topics relating to this model of computer. i actually like it because it isso small and operates pretty good compared to my hp pavillion that is 5 years old...lol.

You asked me to clarify my issue with an Acer Aspire L100. My problem is, there is no video output from the system. It appears as if the onboard video has gone out. The unfortunate thing with this mini system, you cannot replace the video card. I was trying to find out if this is something common with this model and if there were any known fixes. I tried tanking out the memory, unplugging the HDD and removing the battery. Ofcourse, none of these tips worked.


You do have 1 PCI slot in that system. So, you could purchase a video card and place in that slot. Since your video is on-board you'll need to disable in Control Panel - Device Manager. Good luck. ... Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop
