Sure..the text is fine..select the safe mode option at the top..if that does not work, then you are looking at a system restore or hard drive format..hope the data is backed up

My laptop turns on but when i enter my pc password it does not do anything it says strating up but it does not start up


First thing to try, start up in safe mode. When power on, keep tapping F8 key till text screen menu comes up. Choose Safe Mode.
You will see bunch of text on screen then it will take a while before asking you to log in. (2-3 mins?)
When logged in, do a system restore.
Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore..
Choose to restore, choose a recent bold date when you know it worked, click Ok (or continue, forgot what it says there..) Let it do it's thing.
This will reverse any recent change that may have caused the problem.

If will not start again, then repost for more help.

Restart your computer and keep pressing F8 and choose safe mode from the menu
once you enter safe mode,click on start->settings->control panel->system and then device manager
and under display adaptors,disable your display card and then restart it again and see if it works

Displays work fine until After Windows splash screen appears...then unit goes dark on both LCD and External display... Tried fn F5 combination with no success.. Any suggestions??


I suspect a display driver problem - try safe mode. After powering on, start tapping on the F8 key about once a second. You should end up with a bunch of white text on a black background. Options will include "Safe Mode" and "Last Known Good Configuration......". You could try the latter as sometimes that's enough to get you to a desktop. If not then power off/power on and try safe mode. If this gets you to a desktop then it is likely a driver issue and further work will be needed to to get you fixed up. Please post back with your experiences.

Hey,

You can fix this problem by installing windows again from the windows installation cd or from the recovery media that came with the computer.


Let me know if you need anything else.

Acer Extensa 5210 laptop wont boot


Try the following:
1) Remove power cord, battery and hold the power switch down for at least 30 seconds.
2) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s).

If those don't do it, get back to me for more ideas.
Thanks!

Try starting in the Safe Mode; you can access a short menu using either F5 or F8 during the first few seconds after power on. That will load very little of Windows and you can troubleshoot from there.
You might first try booting again and recording the last lines of text as this may also be a clue to the problem.
