No startup I've loaded my system with Windows ME and it went to do it's reboot. It hasn't turned on since. When I plug it in, charge light flashes for a while and then goes out. While this is happening, there is a ticking sound from the internal speakers. Most of the time, I plug it in and it does nothing. Please help!

Re: No startup

The ticking sound could be the harddrive which could well be the heads parking continually because it cannot find the boot.ini file, possibly a damaged harddrive.

My Presario CQ60 is stuck in recovery manager mode. I keeps going to startup repair.

Problems starting up a PC can be tricky to fix, since Windows hasn't had a chance to load its arsenal of troubleshooting tools. Some people simply give up and reinstall Windows.

Startup Repair can prevent a time-consuming reinstallation by diagnosing and repairing problems that prevent Windows from starting.

Startup Repair is designed to start automatically if Windows detects a startup problem. For more information about using Startup Repair, and what to do if it doesn't start automatically

here is my solution... when you boot your window when you're middle in dos loading press F8 and select boot in safe mode... then when you are in windows click start --> all programs ---> accessories---> sytem tools ---> system restore... hope you back up your windows.... try to restore your window in earlier time...

My Travelmate Laptop will not power on. During an automatic update the server went down and the system crashed I had to turn it off when I tried to startup the power button comes on but the power light...

boot into Windows' Safe Mode; press F8 before the Windows loading screen appears to get this option.

Once signed in, you'll be prompted to a) continue in Safe Mode, or b) Restore a previous install point.

Choose option b) and then follow the instructions. If the same problem (black screen after Windows has started up) persists once you've rebooted, sign in with Safe Mode again and restore to an earlier install point.

change the Automatic Update to notify before installing.

Acer aspire one will not work.


If you get a post screen with Acer written on it at startup, and the screen turns off when loading the system (Windows or Linux), then you need to reinstall the system using an external USB cd unit and the recovery disk that was provided with your Acer.

If instead the display has no screen at all , try connecting an external monitor to test the laptop.

If you get picture on external monitor, then the Aspire One has a faulty LCD ribbon cable or a faulty LCD display or inverter.

If you get no picture on external screen , then you have a faulty motherboard, possibly faulty video chipset on motherboard.

In any case check your Acer One warranty, all the faults listed are covered by Acer warranty for one year.
Contact Acer at the number listed on documentation to have the computer repaired.
