If it keeps going into setup, check that the date and time is correct, if not correct it and go to standard cmos settings menu and see if your hard disk drive is recognised, if so exit and save settings and reboot. If sends into set up again, check date and time again and if incorrect again, then the cmos battery is flat and needs replacing, if time and date is ok, then look in standard cmos settings again and look for a line reading 'Halt on all Errors', dissable this and next time it boots it should boot to the part where it gives a clue as to the fault.

How far does it get in booting. Do you see the Windows screen with the side scrolling bar before it reboots. During the boot process, start hitting the F8 key once a second until it drops you into a menu where you can select to start in Windows with safe mode. If you cant get that far, hit the DEL key a few times a soon as you boot the computer to try to go into your BIOS. If you can get into either of these, I may be able to help you.

Windows vista on Accer aspire 5315 reboots over and over

Try starting in safe mode (press f8 on start up) once in safe mode use system restore to restore your operating system to a earlier point.
For XP
Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
For Vista
Start - all programs - maintenance - backup and restore center

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen

When you get in setup check the time and date and see if correct, if not; correct it and save settings and exit, then it should reboot. If the time is correct and date then you will have to reboot the system and keep pressing F8 while its booting, this will take you into safe mode, you need then to choose last known good cofiguration and hit enter, hopefully you should now get into windows.

When you turn on the pc keep pressing F8 until it boots into safe mode. when in safe mode look in the list for 'Last Known Good Configuration' and select the line with the up/down arrows on keyboard and press enter. the pc should then reboot back into windows, if not and you still get the flashing cursor, then there is a boot.ini file fault where the sysstem cannot find the c:\ volume to start windows, and you will need to borrow a copy of windows to do a system repair.
