My Acer Aspire One D270 screen went black

December 22, 2015 at 09:50:40
Specs: Linux
My Acer Aspire One D270 screen went black after my battery went dead. I was using it with low battery when i had to go do something. I left it on & totally forgot about it. Three days later when i go to use it i find it dead. So i go to charge it for 15 minutes so i can power it on when i noticed the two blinking lights. The WiFi and battery lights. Ive tried hooking up to my TV didn't work, tried directly starting it & nothing. All i get is a faint beeping sound from the bottom & a clicking sound like the fans want to kick on but nothing. It was a gift from my daughter. Any help or information on this matter is greatly appreciated & welcomed. Thank you for your time & knowledge.

If the main battery is easy to remove, take it out and let us know whether it runs from domestic power alone. If it does then it is probably the expired battery pulling the voltage down. If it doesn't work on just domestic power then it's worth checking the charger.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Ive tried that already & got the same result, tried a different charger still the same. Also just found out it was a refurbished unit if that helps. Thanks for the super fast response.

If you never ever see anything at all on the screen then you almost certainly have a hardware fault.

What to do next? I have the necessary tools to replace a resistor, jumper, capacitor & all that good stuff. I work at a facility here in Ensenada, Baja California building navigation & sonar equipment. So if i need to get a little dirty work done on my Acer it wouldn't be a problem although i hope it doesnt have to come down to that. Parts are pretty expensive down here.

Ok let me try this lazesoft window recovery thing and I'll get back to you. One more question, is this similar to an iOS reboot thing? I'd also like to mention that i had a little window in the bottom right hand corner where the clock was where it said i had a reservation for the new Windows 10 and i noticed my Acer started acting strange from that point on. I believe it was my wife who had prereserved that and i couldn't unreserve the offer. I hope this helps. Thanks again & I'll try the lazesoft thing

Do you ever see anything at all on the screen?

If it turns out to be a hardware fault then working down to component level is virtually a thing of the past. No circuit details are available or individual parts. Complete boards or units have to be changed. Clicking sounds could be a sign of hard disk failure.

I know it's a strange thing to ask but does it "sound" as if it is starting up - sometimes you get to recognise the noise sequence if you have had a computer for some time.

Ok my friends i have better results but still netbook not working. Ok i got the notebook to stay on, my hard drive is now operation able. Now for the bad news. The fans dont kick on still and im unable to get my netbook to switch to other external monitor. The hard drive no longer beeps n clicks as before and i dont want to keep it on longer then it should before it heats up to much. Your advise and knowledge as always is much appreciated and so helpful. You guys Rock!!! What else can i do to fix it & sorry for my late reply & feedback been a little busy lol.

If you are certain the clicking sound was definitely coming from the HD then it won't last much longer, so (whatever else you might have to do) that needs replacing and the system reloading.

Are you saying you managed to boot to Windows with the fans not running? If so, with the computer off make sure the fans feel free to spin and are not chogged up with dirt. Check their plugs too - unplug them then insert the plug firmly again. Even running it without fans for a short time is risking damage so be careful.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
