This sounds like an overheating issue. You need to open the case and check for dust and clean it out. If dust is not the issue then the heatsink compound will need to be changed, this will involve removing the proccessor heatsink and fan, removing the old compound and applying new.
If you are familiar with the BIOS you can check your processor heat readings just prior to the shut down if you can.

My Acer Aspire x1200 desktop won't turn on. I press the power button, the fans rev and the lights flash blue as normal, then it beenps once and shuts down. It keeps cycling like this, trying to turn itself...


Have you by chance downloaded a new Service Pack for Windows?
Try booting into safe mode and doing a System Restore (if possible), if not try taking out your RAM Module(s) and re-seating them (it). If more than one try re-seating each one separately. One bad module could cause erratic behavior.

Hi, On my aspire L310 the logo ACER stays on to long (over a min). I checked in BIOS but dont see any way to reduce or to eliminate the logo. Do you have any solution for my problem? Sinerely...


Acer displays that logo to cover up the 'ugly' POST code that runs every time your computer starts up. If it used to do this quickly before but has now slowed down then your computer may be discovering various hardware issues on startup. This can also happen if your CMOS battery (which keeps the internal clock working) is running down.

First thing to do is update your BIOS by visiting Acer's support site and installing the latest one they have for our model.

If this does nothing to improve the POST time and you feel comfortable taking apart your min-desktop. Check for bubbling capacitors.
These can be replaced.

If all else fails, check the CMOS battery. It is a small coin sized battery connected to the motherboard. It is a standard battery you can find at the drugstore.

this seems like a software issue . if you can not run your system but ift works fine in safe mode try to run a system restore from factory disks and see where that gets you,

Acer aspire m5460 powers on but will not boot up


you may have probelm in the RAM of the PC, what u need to do is to shut down the PC, pull out the power cable from the PC, keep pressing the power on button of the PC for s3-4 mins (without the POWER)
refit the power cable and power on.
if still not solved u may have to open the PC and locate the RAM cards, it will look liks a small ruler (1 inch by 4 inch size) with some IC chips on it.
Remove the RAMS and do the above solution mentioned couple of times, refit the RAMS and try again.

Check your system board(motherboard) for a CMOS reset jumper. usually located near the CMOS battery. change it over to the "reset" position. wait 5 mins boot pc. if it makes it to windows. shut down move the jumper back to the original position and try to boot.

keep start button pressed 30 seconds, the pc should turn off. If not brutally unplug the power cable. Do a scan disk on restart.
