Haw you try to start up windiws in the safety mode. You press F8 before windows start up , and you chose safety mode. I had a ibm with the same problem , there was the hardrive som whas faulty.
But if you can try to press F8 , ans se if you can start up windows. a another solution are to reinstall windows , but if man have many things on the computer man dont want to loose , it are the last solution.
Did you get some error mesage on the screen?

    That can be a bios fault . All computers start up the bios first . In 98 i have a digital celebris with a bios fault , then the computer dont start at all. I change the bios with a new one and the computer its was ok. You must go to a data shop and hear if they can change the bios for you. Bios are a small piece on the moather board , and when man change it man must install bios software for the new bios.

    Go to the data shop where you buy the laptob and ask if they can test the bios on your labtob.

    A another fault could be the battery ore the el power adapter , but i would check the bios first.

Black screen on acer aspire

If you get no display on the laptop at all when you start it, make sure it is not an issue with the display card. If it works, backup all crucial data.

If the laptop is still under warranty, contact Acer and have a technician check it for you.

Some other things that I would try are:
1. Remove the battery, place it back after about 30 seconds and try to restart.
2. Try using the power cord directly unless you already have.
3. If you hear 3 beeps when you start the computer, reseat the RAM modules.
4. Remove the CMOS battery (looks like a coin) and place it back in after about 30 seconds.

***Make sure the laptop is not plugged in while you open it up.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at

It sounds like the laptop is having problems with P.O.S.T boot

I have an acer travelmate 252LC_DT which whenever I start doesn't load the operating system and just displays a blank screen. Prior to this the Micro-antivirus 2009 virus was located on the laptop and I...

ok my friend as you said the operating system is not loading any more so that means we are having some corrupt files that makes the windows to fail while trying to boot up.

and since you cannot even log in to the computer even in safe mode that means you have only two options.

first is to try a repair (most of the computers use F12 key to get to the repair counsel).
second reinstalling windows.

so try the first one if it doesn't work then reinstalling windows will be the last thing to do.

if you need and further help please let me know

Laptop boots slow


A couple of reasons why any PC will boot slowly:
1. slow processor, low memory, slow hard drive;
2. too many programs starting up. Pls try goto Start, Run, in next small window, type "msconfig" less the quotes, OK. In next window, click on the "Startup" tab, un-check everything (except perhaps your anti-virus or anything else you think is important). Click on buttons, Apply and then OK. If for some reason you would like to return some programs back, you can always go back and check them.
3. it would also be of great help to check for any possible virus or malwares (download , install and run Ad-Aware).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
