Re: acer aspire wont boot after improper shut down
It appears that you deleted some systems files.
You have been unsuccessful with System repair, then you need to reinstall Windows plus all your device drivers (eg. video, audio,LAN etc.) and your programs. If you don't have these drivers then go to a working computer and download them from the computer's WEB download/support site.
You will most likely lose your data in the process of reinstalling Windows, if you are desparate to recover your data, then remove the hard drive from the computer and connect it to a USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, this computer will see it as an external hard drive, you can then copy your data onto a CD or USB memory stick.

I assume you are talking about startup repair which fails no matter how many times you run it.
The most common cause for this problem is file system issues on the hard drive. This usually occurs due to an improper shutdown (by holding the power button down to shut it off or if the AC is unplugged or fails without the battery installed or when the batter has failed completely). The solution to this is to either use a Windows boot disk (with an external USB DVD drive) and perform a CheckDisk on it or take the hard drive out of the computer and attach it to another Windows computer and perform a CheckDisk on it.
The second most common reason this occurs is due to a failing hard drive. Hopefully you have your data backed up somewhere. You will need a new 2.5" SATA hard drive and the Recovery Disk Set for your computer from Acer if this is the case.
I hope this has been helpful. Good luck and remember - always back up your stuff (pictures, music, documents, etc) - the more important your stuff is, the more places you want to have it.
You may have a RAM problem. Try reseating the RAM modules, if this does not fix your problem, remove the RAM modules and take then to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
You should perform a restore. Boot the computer in SafeMode. To do so, restart the computer and keep on tapping 'F8' key, select SafeMode. Now click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> System Restore, select a restore point when your computer was working fine.
Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.
Turn off notebook. Remove the battery. Press Power button. Notebook should start working. Wait for 15 secs. If the screen still blank press Power button and hold it for approx. 4 seconds until notebook is powered off. Then press power button again. Bingo, problem should be solved.
You could try unplugging your laptop and taking the battery out, wait a few minutes put the battery back in, then plug it back in to the wall receptable, if you were working on something you wanted to save when this happend it might not keep any of the information, you should be able to boot it back up normally.
your laptop has been turned off without shutting down. all your laptops registries are probably messed up. the easiest way to do is to reformat your computer or restore it to factory settings. unless you have some important files that you cant afford to lose.
