Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook ?

Acer quit working

\015 While using my laptop, it just turned off. Upon turning back on...it turns right back off. I cleaned my heatsink and fan, all ok. When I turn it on, the first screen starts to load...then shuts off. This repeats over and over. The laptop is less than a year old. Can somebody help?\015

Answers :

Are you running XP by any chance??

\015\012if so update the BIOS to the NEW 1.42 version
\015\012((the best version ACER has put out yet))
Well, the 1st thing to check is boot into safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can get to the desktop.

If you can, run system restore and then see if you can boot to normal mode.

If it shuts down, boot to the system BIOS, and see if the system will continue to run, if it does, then your issue is most likely a operating system problem or a hard drive problem causing an OS problem.

If the system doesn't shut down in BIOS, next is try to boot to a CD. You may have to remove the Hard Drive to exclude it from the issue. If the system boots to a CD and will continue to run, then we are pretty sure the HDD/OS is the issue.

Next would be trying to run diagnostics on the hard drive, if they fail, replace the drive. If they pass, reinstall WIndows.

For about one week, when I try to listen to audio, no sound comes out of the laptop speakers so I tried external speakers but that did not work. I restored my system to a point well before the sound quit working but that did not help. Whe I go to control panel and look at sound/audio devices it says "no audio device". When I go to system in control panel and look at devices, it shows me a lot of stuff associated with sound and says they are all operating properly. Help!
