Re: my acer powers up but shut down at the windowsME...

No this appears to be a problem that is not just happening once... I've been having the same problem... but my problems were worse... my motherboard and hard drive were both fryed by this problem... I had to send it in to acer and they replaced these items but the computer still froze up and died after I had installed windows media player 11 and aol... so I am starting to think it is media player's fault because someone else has mentioned they had installed it.... I'm actually sending it back to acer tomorrow and they are picking up the tab this time on shipping... (I'd be one unhappy customer if they weren't)... I'll let you know how it goes whenever I get my computer back again... only when I do I'm not installing media player....

It sounds like you may have some corrupted system files. You should be able to repair them using your Windows XP installation CD and the steps out-lined in this article.

Blue screen

Dear H.W. Coody,
Try to boot into windows through safe mode.(You will have to repeatedly press DELETE or F8 when your PC is booting up).
  1. This should bring up a list.
  2. Select "Boot into Safe Mode" (or something with "safe mode" in it)
  3. Wait for windows to boot up.
If this doesn't work and you still get the Blue Screen, then your best bet will be to go for a complete fresh install of Windows.
I recommend going this way because not only will it save you time,your PC is in this state because of the rogue apps you had installed (System Progressive Protection and Stopzilla). A clean install will remove any trace of them.

Since you are using a branded PC (e.g. Acer), you should definitely get the help of a technician or a friend with some knowledge in computer hardware. If you decide to hire a technician,don't forget to give him the recovery disks you got when you purchased the PC. (These disks contain genuine software designed for your PC)

After you get your PC back,
  • Download and install a free, trusted antivirus such as Avast or Avira.
  • Defragment your Hard disks regularly (Again, be careful. Use the windows defragmenter or O & O Defrag Pro.)
  • Whenever you download apps,download them from a trusted site such as Always try to read up some reviews about an app. A simple google search might help.
Follow these steps and you should not encounter any problems for some time.

Windows is not loading have black screen with white cursor then goes to acer and fast out again to white cursor

Hello, doing a "last known good configuration" Works most of the time. Here is how to do it:

1. Make sure your computer is powered down.

2. Turn your computer on and immediately start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly until you see a black screen with white writing that gives you a list of boot options.

3. Use the down arrow on your keyboard to select the Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced) option.

4. Press Enter on your keyboard and cross your fingers.

Good Luck!

I have a gateway gx7022e windows xp computer. When i try to boot it up the white letters pop up then the screen goes to the gateway screen and freezes. Then my num lock comes on but my keyboard wont work....

At power on / power up, look for the key during the bootup (black screen with white text), that allows you to enter SETUP. If none designated such as F1, F2 F10 etc, then quickly click the delete button a few times and that may get you into setup. You may have to turn off the computer if you miss that window of time if it rfequires pressing the delete button a few times. Keep an eye out for the Enter Setup key though. To turn off the computer press and hold the power button 'till is shuts down and resart the process until you get to the setup screen in bios. In setup bios environment, look for set factory defaults and then save and restart. That may solve the issue of the lockup.

Video screen will not display after pc goes thru it start up sequence. But during start up process will display window welcome page

Try restarting the computer in safe mode and when it boots, see if the screen is visible. If it is then there is an incompatible screen resolution that is trying to be displayed in normal mode. Set the default screen resolution to one that you know works with the adapter....usually 800 X 600 is safe until you get a normal boot. If you have video during the booting process than I do not believe it to be a hardware problem, usually windows driver or a setting.

Windows xp will not load on my computer....

It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

Dont worry just boot your computer using Bootable disk or windows installation disk, enter into Recovery console by pressing"R"
type the Administrator password if any or simply press "Enter".
At the command prompt type-"fixboot"
once done restart your computer normally.

Do a recovery from boot up. Press F12 after you power up the unit. Should take you to a boot list. or read your manual and it will tell u what to press to get to recovery. Do a full system recovery.

Acer Desktop doesn't boot

I have had the same problem than djlimit.
I have contacted ACER service on line (in France, were I live) . They propose a quotation for repair against 60 Euros.
I shipped the product through (prepaid) express parcel service. I got it back 10 days later. They simply exchanged the main PCB.
