Laptop won't wake anymore ..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a problem with an old laptop, the Aspire 5520G.
When i put him in sleep mode, it won't wake anymore ..
No matter what i do, it's not working, pressed every keyboard key, tried to hard reset it etc .. nothing is working ... i'm forced to pull the battery out.
The indicator light keeps flashing, saying it's in slaapmode, so it's not a screen problem ..

Any know fix or help? biggrin.gif

Greetings.

Have you tried updating it's BIOS? Have the latest chipset and video card drivers? Are there any missing hardware parts? Like perhaps is the wireless card not in there or has a stick of RAM been taken out?

Most likely harddrive is going bad_ This could be one of the causes, had this same problem on an old laptop_ Harddrive just wasn't able to spin up quite as good so it was never able to rewake itself_ Do a smart test on your HDD and see if its healthy_ or in good working condition.
