I guess it's an issue with your User account. You need to create a new account with Administrative rights and delete the currently used account. I hope you know how to create new accounts with administrative rights. You can also see the screenshots of XP at & Hope it works out for you.

Hi When the laptop boots and reaches the logon screen, log in as administrator. If administrator does not show in the list of users, press ctrl+alt+del two times. The log on screen will appear. Log in as administrator, blank password and make sure it's logging in to the laptop and not on a domain. Then you can create a new user, Control Panel, Users, Create user. Make sure that this user has admistrative rights. Restart the computer and this new user will show in list of users to log on. Please let me know if you have any problems doing this.

My acer Travelmate 242lc will not power on

First think , has it been dropped, jarred, banged, get the idea? Does it continue to blink, the HDD? Do you see a "ghost image" in the monitor in a bright light? Do you here sounds? You say "nothing else happens", meaning the light stops blinking? Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to boot noemally.

A Windows Password Reset Disk could do all the job for you, it can reset your lost or unknown Windows password safely and quickly without login, you can create a Windows password reset disk with the tool Windows Password Breaker, then use it to reset your password.

Acer travelmate 3210

Acer Travelmate 3210 is the Series
and in that series your Laptop model is 3212NWXMI

like Acer Aspire 5300 is series and 5320 is the model number like that.

there was no need to update Bios
now in case your laptop is turning on
Please try to start in the Safe mode
and there you shut down your laptop properly and try Restarting in normal mode.
Secondly, If you are well versed with the technology then please
try to reinstall the Windows Xp

and BIOS update is something you should be very careful of.
do not try unless it is MOST required

Try to uninstall your WiFi-card and reboot, allowing windows to re-innstall. If XP, Right-click on my computer, the properties tab, then periphials, locate your card and uninnstall. Restart. It has helped me before.
