my acer aspire m5201 has been having issues with booting for the last 6 months and i would like to solve the issue.
When booting up the fans will spin and the front aspire logo on the case will illuminate but the power indicator button does not illuminate and nothing is displayed on the monitor which indicates their is no signal and therefore goes into standby mode. the keyboard and mouse do not light up either so they are not functional during this initial 30 min period
The only workaround i have found with this problem is to allow the PC to boot up slowly and after about 30mins the PC will load up to the acer screen with the f8 and f12 buttons in which it will boot up to windows and work as normal, but as you can see this is still a major inconvenience as i am unable to use the PC when in a rush etc. Another issue is that when put into sleep and left for a number of hours it will do this same process again as it will not display anything when the keyboard is pressed.
