I would start by unplugging all devices, drives from the PC. Printers, Cameras, iPods. The only thing that should be plugged in is the keyboard, mouse and monitor. If that yields no result, it's time to open the case and disconnect your optical (DVD/CD) drives, hard drives, and floppy if you have one. From there I would try changing RAM from a working machine that has similar RAM (DDR, DDR2)

You could also try resetting the CMOS by pulling the nickel shaped battery out of the motherboard. That should at least get it past the emachine screen and get you some more specific error messages.

My Adobe reader 8.1.1 will not open. I get error message that the patch package file is damaged and cannot be fixed. I am unable to uninstall Adobe Reader 8.1.1 and cannot Install 8.1.2 nor any patches....


Hello there.
This problem happens often. Please try the following steps to resolve the issue.

1) Restart your computer.
2) When the machine first starts again it show some white text on a black screen, before the Windows logo appears. Gentyl tap the F8 key repeatedly _before_ you see the windows logo until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.

Now that you're in your computer in Safe Mode, go to your Control Panel and select Add/Remove Programs and chose Adobe Reader 8, which should uninstall properly now.

Hope this helps.

My Acer Aspire M1201 Desktop will not boot. I turn the power on but all I get is the Acer logo followed by "No Signal" and the monitor goes blank. I keep hoping I will finally hear the beep noise...


Hi,

If you are seeing the Acer logo on boot up then the machine is working. The problem will be your graphics drivers being corrupt.
Try starting the machine in Safe Mode. To do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as it's just starting up. It should take you to an advanced menu with Safe Mode at the top, select that with the cursor keys.

If it allows you to boot in safe mode then wait until Windows loads and then right click on My Computer/Computer, select manage from the sub menu and then Device Manager.

Click on Display Adapters and uninstall the drivers. When its done unistalling the drivers restart the machine in normal mode. It should boot into Windows. If it lets you boot into Windows I suggest that you download and install the latest drivers from Acer's support website.

If you need anymore help please post back.

Good luck and regards.

I am trying to change booting sequeance from BIOS for reinstal windows to CD Rom. but system in not getting start from ROM.


In order to change the boot sequence on a Dell computer you have to press the F12 key right after the computer starts and BEFORE the Windows logo appears.
You can also choose F2, if you have to get into the BIOS.

On some machines you just have to hold down the respective key, on others you have to tap it repeatedly. Just try it out.
When you see the Windows logo, let the computer complete the start-up, reboot and try again.

Once it is booting from CD/DVD, follow the instructions on the screen ("Press any key to boot from CD...")

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio VGC-V3M and I have just a black screen after starting it. I can hear windows loading, and I get the vaio logo, then the Windows XP logo but then blackness. I can get the Bios...


If you can see the windows logo and get into the bios then it is not the graphics card.

Most likely cause is the os itself, just after post press F8 repeatetly until you have the boot mode page open and choose safe mode, in safe mode do a system restore, goto start bar, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore, and start from a resent restore point. This can can take a while, so be patient and let the computer restore itself until you have the windows screen up.

If the restore dosent work, goto safe mode again, right click on my computer goto properties and enter device manager, in there under display adapters click on the plus sign and uninstall the graphics card, reboot. hope this helps post back if need farther help.

My computure wont start


Your computer is not getting past it's self-test. If all you get is the logo and you can't start it in safe mode, most likely you have a hardware problem. Does your system have a little speaker that makes one beep when you start it? If so, are you hearing the beep?
If not, like I said above, it is failing it's hardware self-test.
In cases like this, I open the case and disconnect all the drives and start it to see if that is the problem. If you see stuff other than the e-machine logo, that means you probably have a bad CD. If you do have one of those speakers, also take out the memory and you should get a bunch of beeps when you start it. If not, you are most likely looking at a bad motherboard.
One other thing you can do before pulling your hair out is take out the little battery for a minute or two and put it back in. This should reset your CMOS, although in your machine, there may be a jumper you need to change (near the battery) to clear it.

Start up menu


I know nothing about this machine in particular but immediately when the computer beeps... Generally the "delete" key gets you into the bios menu. If not that, then its almost always a function key "F1"-"F12" Just try running your finger down and back the function row as it boots if "DEL" fails Windows' boot menu comes up when you hit "f8" repeatedly before the windows logo appears. For older Windows versions use the left shift key and hold it just before and during the windows logo. Give it a try!
