Have you tried the F8 option at boot-up and selected "last known good configuration"?

Acer L100 will only start in safemode when I press the F8 key, switches off if I try normal mode


Check your documentation; that may be a safeguard because there is a problem or corruption in Windows, so it auto-starts in safe mode so that you can troubleshoot. I am just guessing. Safe mode loads only the bare essential drivers to get Windows running, all peripherals are blocked because one of them is crashing Windows. I am just guessing, so check your manual that came with the computer. What you can do is a system restore to an earlier date; hopefully that will take care of it.

Assuming the keyboard and mouse are wired/usb type, I would unplug them both, then restart the machine. Wait for windows to completely load, then plug them back in (preferably into different usb ports) then wait 60 seconds... That should resolve your issue.

My acer t180 won't start up in normal mode i have just intalled the new norton onto it i have 1gb of ram but it starts in safemode....do i need more ram.....?


1. You may have to go into "safe mode" 1st and then start you pc in normal mode.
2. if you have a virus you may not be able to recover with the Norton anti virus.
3. There is a free software that you can try called "Ccleaner" this may restore you to the boot screen. A google search will find the site.
4. You may have to "format" the drive and reinstall your Operating System.
I hope this helps.

I cannot logon to my PC


Start your PC in safe mode, to do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as soon as you turn the power on. This will then bring up an "options" screen listing boot in safe mode, safe mode with network support etc. Just use safe mode. If it goes directly to windows instead - shut it off and try again til u get the safe mode screen. The arrow keys control the selection to choose.When it starts in safe mode a black screen will usually appear with a bunch of writing, this is normal, after that it may "hang" for as long as 5 minutes, before coming up with a login screen. Sometimes hitting enter or escape will bring up the login screen faster. When you have a login screen, login and disable the updates using the software control options for the software that is trying to update. You might also go to control panel, administrator options, then services and disable automatic updates temporarily. When your pc starts in safe mode - it starts with minimal drivers and does not run updates- this allows you to change settings. You can then reboot normally and it should start properly without updating before starting.

Then go to Start>accessories>system Tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that everything was working normally, when it has finished restoring the computer will restart. If asked choose start windows normally.

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.

Cannot get out of running windows normally


You didn't loose you work, windows only got corrupted as what often happens. Start up into safe mode, then run "scan disk" and select fix errors automatically, it might take a while to run. Maybe with a little luck it might find some errors and fix it.
Worst case situation - put the hard drive in another computer that boots in order to back up work, then put it back in your machine and buy a copy of windows xp. Then install drivers from Acer's website. (might have to use a jump drive with another machine to install first network drivers on your machine)
Hope this helps maybe a bit......
