Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I have problem with my acer aspire 3684 nwxi laptop. I cannot open any file. The desktop is blank. Nothing icon show.
Have you tried booting into safe mode? If not, hit F8 at startup
(before the Windows logo) and see if safe mode works. If you can get
into safe mode and not normal mode, you have either a) driver problem
or b) Windows corruption
If that is the case, you can remove your drivers from your device manager (video and audio drivers are the biggest culprits) and try booting normally again. If the drivers are the problem, windows will boot and try to load drivers for the devices that you removed.
If you end up removing all devices and Windows still won't boot, you either have spyware or viruses on your system ... or Windows is so corrupted that you will need to reinstall.
Be aware that if you have bugs in your system, a simple "Windows repair" might not work. You can try it, but just be aware. Worst case scenario, boot into safe mode again, back up your files to a flash drive, external drive or another partition, then reinstall Windows "clean", which will wipe the C drive and reload a clean install with no bugs and no problems :)
Good luck - hope it helps!
