It turns on, and that's it :-(

My computer is a Acer Aspire v5, with windows 8. It will only light up a black screen where I can move my mouse across without lags, but this is how far it comes, the Acer logo appeard the first time I turned it on but after I shut it down with the on/off button it just shows me the black screen with the possibility to move the mouse.

Just wanted to confirm a few things..

Did you do a hard power down by holding the power button down for 5 seconds or by just briefly pressing the power button (which would put the computer to Sleep).

I've found this laptop occasionally does not properly recover from Sleeping under Win8, that's why I ask.

Either way, do a hard power down by holding the power button for 5 seconds.

Unplug the laptop and find the battery disconnect pinhole switch underneath (indicated with a picture of a battery lifted up) and using a paperclip press and hold for 30 seconds.

Try powering on again, do you atleast get the Acer logo appearing when powering on?

Let's start from there..

I am having this same problem. I took off the case and pulled the battery to reset the CMOS. That didn't work. The backlit keyboard comes on but that's all. Black when I try to power on. I pulled out the battery and left it out for 5 minutes. Put it back in and nothing. Changed power supply. Nothing. changed outlets. Nothing.

@upulasi_st3v3 Try removing the battery disconnecting the power adapter and holding the power button down for 60 seconds then reinstall the battery and plug in the power adapter then boot the computer. Hope this helps
