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 pc is too slow what can i do?frequently it becomes hang.


the easiest solution could be to totally shut down your computer. let it reset itself, and power it back up again. If that does not seem to help, then I would clear the cache on your PC. I would also run a scan - see if there are errors.

Do you have alot of games on your PC? Do you download anything free that is offered? Many times that slows a PC way down.

My XPS 200 keeps shutting down and power light blinks


During when does your computer shutdown? Please check the diagnostic lights at the back as well which ones have light on it during the time it would shutdown.

Since you said that the light is blinking yellow it just says that your power supply is running outside its normal operating range. So most likely you would need a change of power supply. Maybe a higher wattage would be better.

The computer will just randomly do a windows shutdown and then restart. Cleaned, changed the power supply and still does it.


Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the computer back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the unit is probably doomed. Once a unit shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated unit is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning. Check the CPU fan if it is spinning and also the CPU itself put thermal paste. So that the heat from CPU will absorbed by the heat sink.

Won't complete booting


Sounds like at the very least, the hard drive is. This is common when a file required by the OS is corrupted, and the OS tries to not damage data so it restarts or shuts down.

Emachine T6420 Motherboard??Turns off light flashes,very slow


This could be any number of things. Try removing and reseating the hardware - video card, memory, processor (power disconnected of course). The symptoms you describe could be cause by a faulty motherboad component, video card drivers, other operating system corruption, power supply problem, memory problem. I generally try to run a memory test or swap in known good components to eliminate things one at a time and hope to get lucky, but most likely you won't solve it without spending more time and effort than the computer is worth.

I updated windows automatic updates and it kept telling me to restart the computer so i postponed it for 4 hours. i then left the computer not shutting it down correctly. now windows will not start...


Turn on PC or restart it if it is running and keep pressing F8 during restart.

On screen that will appear choose to start it in "Safe Mode"

When it starts go to Start - Accessories - System tools - System restore - Restore my computer to an earlier time - choose restore point before the date and time when update was done.

Restoring can take a lot of time so be patient even if you think that progress bar is stuck it is still working. Make sure you choose the restore point older than update time.
