ACER Aspire 5290G boot process stop

June 7, 2011 at 00:33:52
Specs: Windows Vista Home, 1M
My old Acer Aspire 5290G boot process stop after 10 seconds with extreme right button keys stay lighted. Throughout the 10 seconds process, my screen stays blank. I have tried to boot from a Vista Recovery disk but fail. I intend to open up the mother board to see if my suspect for mother board problem is true, however, I hope to get some expert opnions what to look for and hope to receive some kind advices from those who have recover from this problem.

... have you tried tapping the <F8> <key> @ bootup to the menu that displays "repair" as an option?

..................................... can you [enter] your bios?

... so when you say "old" how many years?

... the cmos battery (watch type) may need replacing which would hold the bios info perhaps messing with your boot order etc!

The sticker showing the serial number show manufacturing date as 0706 so guess I have bought it in 2006. So how do I confirm that the CMOS battery is the culprit? If so, how can I change the CMOS battery, can I do it myself or I have to bring it to a Acer service outlet?

... you might find the battery location once you've removed the keyboard or a few plates on the back.

... sounds like its on the borderline 5-6 years and from what I've read it may be quite a thin one.

... I hav'nt found much apart from this and here

After openning up the main compartment, I was unable to locate the CMOS battery. I have decided to bring it t Acer service outlet and immediately ask them to change the CMOS battery which the service person located the CMOS battery at the edge of bottom part of the motherboard. However, the problem persist after the change of the CMOS battery and the service person reckon the problem being the motherboard, so i have to wait for a day or two for them to tell me the source of the motherboard problem, I seriously hope it will not be a major problem which will need me to cough up a budget to buy a new notebook
