Each time the power LED blinks and the HDD starts spinning but the notebook still is black and nothing else happens. \015\012\015\012i already read a lot of posts referring to this problem but i did not see any useful solution. so here is my approach to provide all the information i could gather. it might also solve problems\015\012\015\012http://www.fixya.com/support/t121182-not_starting\015\012http://www.fixya.com/support/t123246-acer_ferrari_power_problem\015\012http://www.fixya.com/support/t123110-computer_powers_but_nothing\015\012http://www.fixya.com/support/t118624-not_working\015\012http://www.fixya.com/support/t121019-not_turn\015\012\015\012Here is what i already checked:\015\012\015\012- Running the notebook without HDD and CDROM attached brings the same problem\015\012- Memory test did not find any errors\015\012- Temperature stays below 50 degrees (also have Akasa Laptop cooler attached)\015\012- Problem appears when running with battery\015\012- Problem appears when running with power + battery\015\012- Problem appears when running with power - battery\015\012- Problem appears when throttleing CPU to 50%\015\012\015\012Does anyone have a clue what else to check? Is this a mainboard issue? Anyone found a solution to this problem yet? Is this common? Does warranty cover it?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012 Thorsten\015

Answers :

Mine does the same thing. I run an external keyboard and the problem disappears. I replaced the internal keyboard and the problem is still there when I use the internal keyboard. I ran a burn-in test on the hard drive. It failed. I replaced the hard drive - no change in the problem.
When and if it's running, run 'dxdiag' to see if windows reports any sound and video conflicts.\015\012\015\012It could be the graphic card; as i think(correct me if i'm wrong) that this model has seperate dedicated graphics, other than being on board.\015\012\015\012I'm assuming all drivers are ok and none of the vga or dvi ports give you any video either.\015\012\015\012Although the graphics are independent, it's not like a desktop pc graphics agp card, they are; as far as i know integrated in the motherboard, so the board may be the but of your problem, in which case is a replacement worth it or is it within the warranty period.
