Acer aspire 3610 shuts down while trying to boot

I have an Acer Aspire 3610, that will not boot (Windows XP Home)- I get a blue splash screne saying that the "video driver failed to initialize" and the system will be shut down to prevent damage. I tried to restore the system to the factory defults, using the eRecovery, and recovery disks that I purchased from Acer. and the system still shuts down. I also tried to install a new hard drive, but all I got was a blue splash screne saying "no operating system found" then the unit shut down. I had been getting a blue splash screne for about a week before this happened saying that "one of your disks needed to be checked for consistancy", the disk checker would then run, find no problems and the unit would boot, but it often shut down when I was on the internet. I would restart the unit. the disk checker would run, then the unit would boot again. Any ideas, anyone?

I installed the Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade (store bought) and now my Acer Aspire 5735 gets blue screens, shuts itself down, and random programs get the "**** has stopped working" message.


you shouldn't of installed it because if you would of ran the windows 7 compatibility thing that is on the disc, it would say that your computer is incompatible. You should buy another copy of windows xp and install that.

I have the acer aspire 5532 and windows error recevery keeps coming up please advice. It makes a weird noise and a blue screen pops up that says a problem has occured......


You will have to do a repair of your windows installation. You need to boot on your Windows DVD and do a "Repair" install. OR if you have System Recovery in the PC then you should try that first. Also you could try booting up in SAFE mode, press F8 before it boots, and when, if? it boots to desktop you could either troubleshoot, or restore your system to another time using system restore.

Factory settings?


Try this, if you are running xp i know it will work.

Start menu> All programs>Accessories>system tools>System restore.

This will restore your computer to factory and you won't loose any data. If you want to start fresh with nothing installed, install windows with the cd and choose fresh installation and follow the direcions.

Wireless network


If it is an internal card you should be able to obtain them from Acers website. If it is an external go to that vendor and extract the files from them!
