When this screen is seen with XP, the system must start up by pressing 'Enter' key. If it doesn't, the O/S might be currupted due to improper shut down. If it is the case, you have to load XP again, by inserting the system disc. Here it seems that, the system tries to boot, but fails. A clear indication of currupted O/S.
Hello, that commonly happens when you have a bad motherboard. As long as it does not load the desktop or operating system, then the motherboard is dead. What happened most recently? Did you shut down improperly?
You should never power down by pressing the power button unless your system is deadlocked and won't respond to any other actions. Powering off in this fashion can cause you to lose data, corrupt files, and improperly shut down Windows.
Nonetheless, if you are in need of shutting down the laptop in this fashion you must hold the power button instead of only pressing it. You'll find this in the power settings of the device. Honestly, the power button may even be set to do nothing, which is possible.
To properly shut down your new Pavilion laptop, which should be running Windows 7, follow this process: Click Start > Shut Down
Start is now simply a circular Windows icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and shut down has an arrow pointing down next to it. Click the words shut down instead of the arrow which will bring up other power save options.
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.
I have reviewed your problem and have the fallowing items for you to check and or try. Try booting into safe mode and see if the same thing happens.
( F-8 ) Choose safe mode with network configuration installed.
If the unit runs without shutting down, it is a program conflict and not a hardware issue. Run this safe mode start up, with no external devices connected.
Note... Remove any Flash Cards or USB devices, CD or DVD's .
If the unit runs without shutting down in safe mode, you may want to run a complete restoration of software.
Hope this helps.
1. It is overheating. Overheating will cause the computer to randomly shut down. You can usually decifer if it is overheating by trying to put the computer back on after it shuts down. For example , start it up...let it shut down...then try to put it back on again...if it doesn't come on at all, or if it shuts down even quicker then the previous time, you are most likely looking at an overheating issue. To remedy that you want to open up the case, clean out all of the dust with a compressed air can (be very careful not to tip the can, it will spray liquid), and verify that all of the system fans are running.
2. Could be any type of hardware failure - from the power supply to the hard drive. If you have completly ruled out the overheating issue, I would just take it to a shop to get diagnosed.
I have had this problem many many times at the Lab over the years, in fact I have even owned a PC that did exactly as you describe! ... What I found out was... SOME hard Drives seem to work OK, others??? It seems to be a "Timing" issue with the Hard Disk Controller..
There is NO FIX as such.. that I have ever found, Sometimes ya can find a brand of Drive that will work with.. ALWAYS.. but for the most part.. it's either put up with it.. OR get a new motherboard/PC. I have torn my hair out more than once as I said..
But essentially it is a Motherboard fault, specifically, the Hard Drive Controller, thats is at fault..
