My Aspire M5641 Freezes at Acer Screen. It says at Bottom of Screen " DEL: Enter Setup F12 : Boot Menu". I cant do anything from here with computer. Any suggestions?


Does it say anything else? Sometimes this type of recurring message can be due to the system time not being set. Entering setup and configuring the time may work.

I have a dell dimension 5100 won't come on after shut down.


I will need some more information? Can you see anything on the screen? Have you tried hitting F8 while the computer is booting to see if you can start it in safe mode. It could be one of many problems. I do not want to just guess.

My computer keeps shuting down at any given time


computer abruptly shutting down does not have anything to do with hdd errors unless it tell you there was hard disk error

if computer shuts down in like a second or two, you might have a problem with the power supply unit, or the power cord that goes to the computer is loose in the tower or on the wall socket.

if the computer shuts down normally i.e. windows displaying "windows is shutting down" massage that you would get when you normally shut down pc...then you might wanna check your power plan option from the control panel. disable any hibernation/shut down options.
go to control panel, go to power option, go to edit this power option..
you should see if you have selected to shut down the computer after a given time...select this to never and it may solve the problem.

Computer shut on and off repeats over and over again


When you say "funny noise", you could have a hard drive failing. On Dells, if you push F12 while booting, you should get a boot menu. Diagnostics should be in that menu, it's a Dell feature. Anyway go in there and run some tests and see if it reveals anything. If the tests pass cleanly, you may just have a Windows problem.

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.
