To my amazement the darn thing worked with no problems or delays. Went looking to Acer for help. Eager to hear any solutions. I've had 2 other crashes over the last 2 years one of which was resolved by disconnecting the mouse. Once I snapped it back in place everything works just great! Acer laptops are designed to shut themselves down if they get overheated. If I try to reload again, it will simply try and do the update again and end up the same way since it has already tried 5 times and failed all five. So after I set it to safe mode, or anyother boot setting it either resarts and makes no progress past the logo screen or in the process of making the changes or not to the setup menu the speakers start to make a crackly noise and then I am unable to use the keyboard or any usb keyboard or mouse to operate the selecting options etc.
Almost all Acer computers come preinstalled with a Windows operating system, which allows you to troubleshoot the operating system before locking up during the start-up screen. If you have one set. No shift key safe mode, nothing. Screwed the lid back on tightly, and reboot. You can backup and restore your data by doing this. Follow the instructions from the link below and check.
My Acer Aspire V14 Touch laptop won't boot up. I read a few posts of yours and I am trying to fix my Acer5100. I don't know what it was doing exactly at the time. You can use an external monitor to check if the original laptop screen is working fine or not. If not, you will need to compensate for the service.

You have to call Acer and they'll fix it. Apple knows the value of a positive customer experience. I really am not a fan of the new windows. Hi Stevo2000, How did you get into safe mode? I believe it was off and it was trying to be turned on. You can also use Windows Boot Genius. With battery in and power out it will.

The transformer on the power was running very warm more than normal so we thought maybe it needed to cool down. I have the rescue disks but after installing two of them it tells me that I will lose all infor on the C Drive and really need to access it.

I really hope this is not too late, but perhaps this will help people in the future.
I have an Acer Aspire 5100-5674. Thanks for the instructions, it also helped me to get rid of this issue. If the batter is not working fine, then sufficient amount of power is not being supplied to the device, Hence it will not turn on. You said you have windows 10 pro install disk. After failing the 1709 update I tried the manual version, now when it boots it says: Windows failed to start. I know because I have the same exact problem.
After the hours it took I found I couldn't use the Laptop keyboard or touchpad. Put the battery back, unplug it and be happy. To boot the computer unplug and remove the battery 2. Go to the authorized service center and repair the laptop. Nothing it says there is no hard drive.
Cleaning the fan worked for me as well. Hopefully it's a simple fix. There is no harm in trying this solution. This is done to avoid the damage that can be caused due to explosion of battery.
