Acer Aspire 7560 wont restart

Before shutting down your system click on any programs still running and shut them down. This will cut the time for normal shut down to take place.

You could also run a hard drive diagnostic to see if it has any errors. There might be some if you don't let the computer shut down itself. Restarting can also cause the programs to become corrupt, if they didn't shut down right. Running a defrag on the drive will also help it shut down quicker.
Look on the net also for information on getting your PC to shut down quicker.

My acer travelmate 2301LMi wont startup properly. effectivly it is bricked.


presume something wrong with your acer travelmate 2301LMi in two situations

1a.if the case is that you see picture flashing on and off on the screen and shut down and it might be moisture. in traveling in one place to another ( specially cross country) your pc can have that due to climate change / different area temperature.

Tip: in traveling please don't drain power in your battery pack for constant electricity inside your pc and it can help to avoid moisture.

please dont operate in that condition of your pc it might damage your computer (moistured parts). refer to service provider in your area.

if you can dismantle it, then scatter by pcs. and blower (hot) it by pc, but not too close to the computer parts. or dry it in direct sunlight. and assemble it and screw firmly all parts. by doing this please dont touch all electronic parts of your pc coz, its very sentitive to static electricity and might be damage and dont put all parts in anywhere else, make it secure.put ontop of clothes or paper not wet.and not in any metal tables.

1b. if the case is that you see picture flashing on and off on the screen and in the long run shut down. and might be theres some loose screw in the assemble of your pc with contacts. screw it firmly all parts.

2.if the case is that you see colorful brick of codes, letters, numbers flashing on and off and shut down. your video cards is all ready damage. replace it. as stated in the manual.

I am trying to connect to a Toshiba TLP-T60M through my notebook which is an Acer TravelMate 3230 but it is coming up with Unsupported Sinal.

There are a few things that could factor in to this.

1. Be sure that your laptop is in 'presentation mode' as in, there may be a key combination requiring the use of the 'fn' key possibly which will cycle through three different settings for your laptop: 1. Laptop lcd only, 2. External display only, 3. external and laptop lcd display
cycle through these three settings however your computer requires you to do that and see if one of them shows up.

2. Be sure your projector is set to display whatever is input from a 'computer' as some can switch between a t.v. signal and a computer signal it may need to be set for computer

3. Be sure that the resolution of your laptop is not too high. when you go to the display settings you can choose between your different resolutions that you will push out to your 'secondary display' and go ahead and drop it to the lowest setting and work your way up. you might even possibly have to change your actual resolution of what displays on your laptop to a lower setting in order for it to work.
