I keep the message General Protection fault with a black screen when I turn my acer aspire 3000 on and it won't go past that screen/What can I do to fix it?

To repair corrupted system file/s, boot up with the Windows installation CD then -
Press R to repair when instructed.
Press 1 or Enter to repair the C:\Windows folder.
Then type chkdsk /r and then press Enter.
The repair process will take quite a long time.

Try downloading and installing the most current chipset drivers for your system. You should be using a SiS chipset, and these can be found on both the Acer website, and also on the SiS website.

I have a Acer Aspire 3000 notebook computer that I want to hook up to a 19" external monitor (Septre LCD Model DCL9C) I thoughout that after plugging it in to the rear monitor port adn power source...

According to the Aspire 3000 User Guide, you should be able to use Fn and F5 (not F6) to toggle the display selection. Try that first. If that doesn't resolve the problem...

Your laptop probably has the SiS Mirage 2 graphics processor. It's max resolution is 1024 x 768. The Sceptre DCL9C will likely default at 1280 x 1240. Try backing the resolution (in Control Panel) down to 1024 x 768 - for the external monitor. Also, hit the AUTO button on the monitor. It might reset itself to be compatible with the SiS video. Lastly, download the latest drivers for your OS and the SiS Mirage 2 video adapter.

I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.

Aspire 3000 will not boot

Hello Halfwit, Your laptop is trying to boot from lan because it can't for some reasons to boot normally from the hard-disk. Try to listen if when you power on the laptop the hard-disk spins or makes any noises. If not there could be a problem with the connector that links it to the mainboard. If you hear a noise or the hard-disk spins then you may have a corrupted OS (windows) or some bad sectors problems. The best way to find out would be to try to boot the laptop by using a windows instalation cd. Boot from the cd-rom and check to see if the windows installer find your hard-disk and can copy files to it. You will need to change the boot order from bios to enable the cd-rom to boot first or enter some boot menu (if provided) and select " boot from cd-rom " or such thing. If you need more help with these please post back or contact me or other experts on the live chat function on this site. Good luck.
