    I think it is the processor or something... sometimes it goes into bluescreen after the hangup..

    hi! never mind the previous comment... I've checked the manual, and the light indicates when the hard disk is active... do you know how to fix it?

    Thanks

Sounds like the harddrive is going bad. send it in for acer warranty. If it is out of warranty a new harddrive is like 100$ and most places would charge about $100 to replace it. might consider just getting anew one.

Consult your manual, see what the light means, it could refer to hard drive light activity or be a function key you've activated. It could mean the system is trying to push itself into standby or it could mean a variety of things. Get back to me with what the lights designation is.

Asus Eee 1005HA hangs on boot


This works for my Asus Eee PC
1. Shut down and remove the battery.
2. Press the power button 10 times, next 1 minute pressing down.
3. Remove the memory and at the motherboard you'll see a clrrst (clear reset cmos..)
4. Short these 2 tiny pads by placing a tiny screw driver for 5 seconds, plug the power adapter and turn-on the switch, next wait at least for 3 seconds. Remove the power adapter.
5. Place back the battery and turn-on. You'll see the same screen (Logo of Asus) then patiently wait for at least 10 minutes or more. That's it.Good luck.

My HP compaq nx6110 windows xp sp3 hangs at boot


Take a look at this post that deals with a HP nx6110 laptop with random freeze ups. If the described symptoms also happen on your laptop. If you do experience random freezeups or slow DVD you're facing the same FSB chip problem. All peripherals, USB ports included, are connected on the Front Side Bus. Poor soldering causes intermittent contact which in turn results in hanging, slow, or totally non bootable (stuck at HP logo) laptop. Hope this helps.

My laptop is stuck on "Logging Off".


You can hold down the power button until the system powers off, this will do a hard shutdown of the laptop. It will boot back up fine, but if this keeps happening then you need to look into what is causing the hang up.

My Lenovo N500 does not want to startup but there is a light that stays on all the time, it is next to the start button


The light that stays on is probably a power indicator. Remove AC adapter and battery. Hold power button down for 20 seconds. Put battery back in and reconnect AC adapter. Try to start your computer.

The Acer 3100 Series Laptop battery on light burns continously


That battery is exhausted. Best not even leave it in the laptop ever. As all this will do is to create more heat and overload the power system. Best to remove it and hang on to it until you get a new one.
