Acer Aspire 3003 Strange Problem

Recently I shut down my computer then when I went to boot up the next day it took 4 times longer than usual and took ages to open programms.
I have done all the usual run spyware, anti virus, defragged and cleaned registry etc without success. Finally I did a system restore and everything was back to normal. I now leave my computer on 24hrs as when I shut it down and restart the SLOW problem returns until I do a system restore. One other thing I have noticed the AVG icon in the task bar is greyed out after start up, until I restore!! I suspect a startup programm but cannot see anything in Taskmanager Processes.

Uninstall AVG and then download and install Avast Free version Antivirus. It is way better than AVG and MIGHT fix the problem.

Computer heats up and shuts down


Hi,
I would suggest you open the notebook by yourself and clean it from dust. I had an Acer notebook that shut down very often because it had so much dust inside that it overheated.

Acer laptop wont start up.


You have corrupted files on your system, either from a hard drive beginning to go bad or from just a bad update, use your recovery console, either available during start up or by using the windows cd to boot your computer and have it run a recovery, you will have to re-apply some of your service packs afterwards. Another option in the recovery console is to use your system save points, if you have the recovery console installed then use it to restore your compter to a day before the update.

Acer Aspire 7520 doesn't start up!


There should be a F key option at start up during the bios side of boot up. Look closely and quickly at the screen when starting up. You should see on that says retstore maybe.

if not just press all of the F keys skiping the ones listed for start up options and bios option.

Acer Aspire 5052 nothing on LCD


If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem.
But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.

Hi please help me with my acer 3003 wont boot


try to power up with power cord only and see if it works. If no lights turn on than your motherboard is dead. If it turns on and nothing happens make sure there is memory installed(RAM). If it turns on and you see windows screen than it shuts off than your operating system needs to be installed again. Also, you can try booting in safe mode by hitting f8 when you initially start your computer and see if it stays on and if it does you have a virus most likely. Good luck.
