Hello! I have an Acer Aspire 5520G Laptop 2 years old. On the weekend it suddenly decided to stop working. When I push the on button it goes to power up, the light flashes green and then it clicks and...

Try to check the memory card reseat or clean it ( the edge connector with gel eraser), do this when battery is out and its AC power plug.

Did it undergoes some maintenance check in two years. Maybe you should, dirt, dust build up maybe the cause, and some contact is building a thin film of insulation commonly on copper coated connector.

Sometimes some add in device is out/faulty causing erratic behavior. Other thing is the hard drive and ODD devices. Reseat ODD and hard drive.

And oh, check your battery, one usual suspect of that.

Acer Aspire 5630

Seems like your VISTA upgrade didn't sucessfully upgrade itself from XP to VISTA. Seems like M$ update program detects your OS as XP and tries to install the SP3 for XP. VISTA only has SP1 released. Its currently stuck in a loop that it doesn't know what to do. Restart your laptop into safe mode by pressing F8 before the VISTA loading page comes up and go to Safe mode and backup your data and use the ACER RESTORE CD OR ACER RESTORE METHOD to help you reload your system back to factory defaults then upgrade back to vista without install any updates or connecting it to the internet.

This is my best solution to get you out of this weird and unusual situation.
