Acer Aspire 3680 Notebook not booting.

By islanbatman ·
My Acer notebook fails to boot past the post stage. I have replaced intel Celron M processor 520 with no change in status. Memory, HDD working in other machines. I have tried the factory restore ALT+F10, with no joy. The system simply wont pass the post screen. Is there help.

So have you attempted to Enter the BIOS

And see what the settings are?

It's quite possible that there is something wrong there which is causing this to happen.

Also if you where to post this as a question you are likely to get answers from those who haunt the Question side of TR. Their Answers may even prove useful.

From what you have said

by Michael Jay In reply to Acer Aspire 3680 Notebook ...

help comes in the form of a new system board, and given that this is a discontinued unit, parts may be cheap, if they can be found.

I see full Acer Aspire 3680 Notebook's on the web for 2-3 hundred bucks, which is not so much less than when the first came out.

My personal opinion is to upgrade.

I'm with MJ on this one

The most likely problem is your mainboard. As he said, replace it or upgrade to new.
