If you download Hirens (Google it) boot disc or USB (150mb file) you will need to USB key installer from the same site and select USB or cd to start first in bios.the boot disc loads a small version of windows Xp on you memory ram.this is as good as safe mode.when the page fully loads you can gain internet access that way .there are hundreds of tools on this programme to fix all kinds of problems and get your laptop up and running.
unplug, remove battery, leave battery out, plug in, reboot to Safe Mode, at reboot start tapping F-8 repeatedly until the menu comes up, select Safe Mode with Networking, in safe mode In Windows 7 type Run in the search box, in the Run box type msconfig, in System Configuration select Normal Startup, click apply and OK, close, click on restart.
try to turn off the laptop, then remove the cables and battery. then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Then , reinsert the cables and battery into it. Turn it on and check if you still in safe mode, if still, call Acer to do other advanced troubleshooting..
One of the drivers or programs that is set to launch during boot is corrupted. You will have to find out which and uninstall / upgrade it.
Boot in Safe Mode, click Start, Click Run and type msconfig and hit enter - the startup management window will launch. Click on the Startup tab and untick all the programs in there. Now reboot. If you get the same error then the problem is with a driver - uninstall them all then download the latest versions from the Acer Support site and install them one by one. If the problem is fixed then one of the programs is corrupted - open msconfig / Startup again and tick one program at a time with reboot until the problem returns: uninstal that program.
try to start it in safe mode, then you can run system restore back to see if this fixes it. when computer loads up and shows the first screen, then push f-8 before it fully loads, this will take you to the safe mode screen, choose safe mode, then when loaded run system restore back to where the problem was ok. if this does not work then I would restore windows from the backup cd. if using safe mode when rebooting, it will change back to normal.
First remove any new, or unnecessary hardware, extra mouse / keyboard / monitors / dongles / and even the battery.
Try again, and if possible, get into 'safe mode' by pressing F8.
If it is stable in safe mode, you at least can try removing devices under, START / CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE / DEVICE MANAGER. Then whilst disabling various devices, try booting again into normal mode, and obtain a new, AND correct driver for whatever piece of hardware was deemed to be at fault.
