Acer Aspire 5750Z doesn't start

In most cases it does't even start, don't see anything.
I took out the battery, it works on the AC adapter.
On a few trials, the laptop starts and for a few seconds the windows blue window logon appears and disappears. the resolution, in those few seconds, appears low.
I can't enter BIOS with F2.
It doesn't start from the CD, from a bootable disk.
Only on the few cases, when i see the windows logon, the hard disk indicator light lights

Re: Acer Aspire 5750Z doesn't start

I see this is around 7 years old. That's a respectable age for a laptop.

I think it's cheaper to buy a replacement one than to have it repaired. I see one on eBay for $24.99 and one for a ridiculously high $139.99 (or best offer).
If you're good in laptop repair yourself, eBay has a lot of parts also.

Of course, it's a much better idea to buy a new laptop or a refurbished model that's originally some 2 years old.

Small world

I think we had one of those at the office and it died after 5 years so we didn't bother with repair and moved it out. A refurb was brought in and done.

Kees notes $139.99 on eBay and if that's for a working model that's an OK price since you can usually slip your HDD into that and pick up where you left off. It's a good price for a working model since the repair counters here start at 150USD and that's without parts or such.
