Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

Computer turns on, wont load windows, then goes to a blank screen

Okay, so i'm freaking out, within the past 2-3 days both of my computers have completely crashed. First, my laptop restarts and wouldnt load windows, would just get stuck on loading windows xp window. Safe mode, with or without networking and last known settings that worked, didnt work at all. Either it would freeze up, or restart after a certain point. I couldnt get the repair disk to work either, i had to redo my computer loosing everything.

Then today, me desktop did the same thing. Is this a virus? Or what? Also, when i redid the laptop there was 3 partitions. There was also a password added when i didnt make a password. Also, now there are two windows i have to choose from. I can't access the other windows at all. I feel very uneasy. The laptop is running xp and the desktop is running vista. Is there anything I should do? Any programs that could help me out? My anti virus is SAV.

When a PC boots first it checks all of the hardware to ensure all is working properly. The stage two of that is turning it over to the operating system. When it is turned over to the operating system the first thing it looks for is the Master Boot Record which is a small program on your hard drive that starts your operating system. If it cannot find the Master Boot Record or if the boot record is corrupt then the operating system will not load. In order to fix put the WIndows operating system disk into your CD ROM and let it boot to the CD ROM. Allow it to load for a few minutes and it will eventually ask you if you want to proceed with the installation or "repair". Choose repair. This is one option to fix your boot record.
Second option is to use Recovery Console. Put the Windows CD in the CD ROM. Click on Start and then Run. In the run box type D:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons (where D is your CD ROM drive). Follow the instructions on the screen. You will be at the command line, type in FIXBOOT. This will also fix your master boot record. Follow these procedures anytime you have an operating system load error use the Recovery CD as your last resort. Hope this helps.

Always booting but unable to load untill iremove the battery to get it off


That means your operating system in unstable. First of all you need to identify what operating system you are using for example Windows 7 or 8 or XP. Then Get a CD for that operating system. Boot from the Operating system CD and select Repair so that the machine can be repaired. During the repair process your machine will restart a couple of times so do not freak out it will be okay. But if it does not work after repair, then you will have to consider what we call wipe and reload. In wipe and reload, we only save all your data and reformat and reconfigure your computer to its factory settings

No booting broblem


I guess the CPU isnt completely ruled out. It might have a bad pin, or your mobo might have a bad socket that got fixed when you jiggled it..but that would be a big problem, and you'll have to take your cpu and look closely at it and the mobo to look for defects.

If its overheating it wouldnt do it immediately. It would get past POST and problem overheat at "starting windows". and if it did that most mobo's will display an error message before POSTing that says it had to shut down your system to prevent overheating.

Plus you also have a decent cpu cooler, so even if you did a terrible job putting on the thermal paste it shouldnt cause your cpu to overheat, unless you have doing a huge overclock, then it might happen.

Are you overclocked right now? have you tried setting everything back to stock speeds and booting like that?

it's more than likely a video card fault, restart the computer and tap f8 to go into safe mode. uninstall your video drivers and restart the computer. it should start up okay now. go to the toshiba website and download the video drivers from there. do not update the drivers via windows update after that.

Looks most likely that your Moms' hard disk has some bad sector on the boot drive. The best you can do is to reinstall the laptop. You may have to hand over the laptop to someone who is good with computer and has the OS disk to this this for you.
