Question about Acer Aspire E500 PC Desktop

Open Question

Not Starting, even though fans running, CD Drive operating.

My PC started to trip without any alarm, since last 10 days, but for the last 2 days this is not getting stated even. Whenever I plug on the CPU, without pressing the CPU's ON switch, its fan start running, DVD drive comes in operating mode (on light signal of DVD drive keeps stay on the CPU display). CPU has a feather touch ON/Off switch and ON display light of the CPU is not turning ON even after pressing it. It is behaving as if it were in sleep mode (hibernation).

IT MIGHT BE A PROBLEM WITH THE CPU....TAKE TO A COMPUTER REPAIR SHOP

IF THESE CONDITIONS WERE FROM THE BEGING, WHY DID YOU NOT TAKE IT BACK TO WHERE YOU BOUGHT IT FROM, IT MIGHT BE DEFECTIVE....ALL CD DRIVES ARE REMOVABLE.....SOME ARE JUST HARDER....

The problem is with your RAM. Dust it and re install it. It may work. If you cant get it fixed get your friends RAM and see if it is working. Check if you get any beep sound from the PC. If so the problem is with RAM and need to be changed. Thanks!

A computer that won't start can be both alarming and infuriating, especially if you're on a deadline or you haven't been backing up all your data (like we all tend to do). Don't panic, though-this problem often has a simple solution.

1.If your desktop computer does nothing at all when you try to start it, first check that the power cable is securely plugged in at the back of the computer as well as into a working power outlet. It's amazing how often this is the case.
2.If you're starting from a button on the keyboard, make sure the keyboard is connected to the computer.
3.If the computer is plugged into a surge protector, see if the surge protector has a reset switch that you can push. (If it doesn't have a reset switch and the problem is with the surge protector, it will need to be replaced.) Try plugging a lamp or other device into one of the surge protector's outlets to make sure it's working.
4.If you can hear the computer's fan or hard-disk drive, or if you can see indicator lights on the main unit but the monitor stays dark, make sure that the monitor is connected to a working power source, that it's turned on and that it's securely connected to the computer via the video cable.
5.If the monitor and computer have power but the computer displays a "Non-system disk or disk error" message, check to make sure you didn't leave a disk in the A: drive. If you did, eject it and restart the computer.
6.If the operating system still won't start even though the computer and monitor have power, try restarting with a Windows CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive or, if you've got a Macintosh, with a Mac OS disc in the CD-ROM drive. (You can start a Mac from the CDROM drive by holding down the C key while starting up.)
7.If the operating system then starts, your problem is probably with the startup hard drive or with the operating system installed on it. If you can't fix the drive, you'll have to replace it. (See also How to Fix Bad Sectors on a Hard Disk and How to Recover Lost Files.)

You can check it here as well:
The minute your computer's hard disk starts to act flaky, make sure you have an up-to-date backup. Then you can do some simple diagnostics and repairs. Both Windows and Mac OS come with built-in hard-disk utility software that scans your hard disk for errors and attempts to fix them.

1. Double-click on My Computer to open the My Computer window.
2. Select the disk that you want to diagnose and repair.
3. Choose Properties from the File menu. You should see the Properties window for the drive that you selected.
4. Choose the Tools tab.
5. Click the Check Now button under Error Checking Status.
6. Depending on your version of Windows, choose either "Thorough" or "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors."

7. Click on Start.

Computer powers on for 10 seconds then shuts off can hear the fan starting then that shuts off could you please email me back with some ideas of the problem would be very grateful


Sounds as though you may have an overheating problem, even though the fan is spinning, it may not be cooling efficiently. Take a look inside the case of your pc (after unplugging from the mains of course) and have a look at the fan for the cpu. If there is a build up of dust around the fan then clear this as well as you can. On most cpu's, the fan can be removed irrelevent of the heatsink which it is cooling. If this is possible, it may make the cleaning easier. Make sure you replace the fan the same way around any try starting the pc again. If the same problem persists, then start the machine with the side casing removed and visually confirm that the fan on the cpu is spinning.

Hope this is some help

My computer makes a loud noise,how can I fix this problem please?


there are a limited number of things that could be making noises. take off the cover of your computer and listen close when you start it. A fan would be the first thing i'de suspect. check them all- cpu fan- motherboard fan-videocard fan- powersupply fan.
I would also listen to the powersupply (rear top of computer)
only things left to check that could be making noise are the cd/dvd rom, floppy drive (both wont run without a disk in them) and your hard drive which would be the last one to make noise. the hard drive runs everytime your computer moves data, if it is getting loud, i would suggest backing up important files and shopping for a new one. Post again here if I can be of further assistance.
Regards..

We've had a Gateway 816GM desktop for about 3-years and except for the usual PC problems it's been fairly reliable. However, in the last few days it started locking up, no video, then it starting hanging...


Bill,
If the hard drive is still good, your files are safe. Replacing the motherboard may mean you will need to reinstall the operating system so you will have to get the files off before you do that.

Now, even though it could be the motherboard, it could be any number of things. If I read your post correctly, nothing happens at all now? You push the power button and nothing? This to me sounds like the power supply. These go out quite frequently and a failing power supply can cause it to lock up. When the power supply fails completely, then you don't get anything. These are relatively inexpensive.

If a new power supply does not solve your issue, then start by removing all internal cards, floppy drives, cd drives, hard drives from the computer. Actually, you can do this first to make sure it still doesn't do anything before replacing the power supply. Then try and turn it on only with memory, cpu, cpu fan, and the onboard video (or video card if it doesn't have an onboard video port). If it does work, then you can add each item back one by one until you find the culprit. However, in my experience as a PC tech, this is almost always the power supply. Probably something like 95 % power supply, 4 % motherboard, and 1 % other. Good luck and if you need any further assistance, let me know. Also, I would appreciate it if you could give this solution a rating of fixya. Thanks! :c)

Have gone to black!


The error: Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt;
WINDOWS\SYSEM32\config\system

You can attempt to repair this file by loading the Win CD into your cdrom drive. Start the PC & press the F5 key every 2 seconds & windows boot menue will load.
Choose the cdrom drive that has the Windows CD in.

Select "r" at the first screen to start repair.
Once back in windows run a full system virus scan.

Good luck & have a great day!
