Acer Aspire 5320 won't start up

I think my acer might have overheated, and now it won't start up at all! I managed to get it to start once in safe mode, but otherwise I get the blue screen, or it just goes as far as the logging in "welcome" screen, but won't open up! Most of the time it simply stays stuck on the loading screen!
I went to open it up and take a look at the fan as it's past warranty, (just!), but it didn't seem to want to open up there either!
Any suggestions please?

    It tells me I have no system restore points, and I've lost my restore disk!

Hi there

Good luck

    Ok, your PC has not overheated, your system has been infected with a virus which has wiped out all the restore points.
    This means you have to recover the operating system either by recovery CD or clean install.
    If you have important documents on the drive you have to connect the hard drive to another computer and get your data before you reinstall the operating system

Acer laptop stuck on Windows boot manager


1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

F10+alt don't work to reset acer aspire one to factory setting. what else can i do


Hi twillis84.
You will need to start your computer in the "Safe Mode", you do this by tapping F8 while the computer is starting up.
Once the computer has started, select "Safe Mode" you have two choices.
I would try "A" first.
A...You can do a System Restore from here.
You will click "Start">All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore, this will restore your system to an earlier time when it was operating properly.
B...Once you are in the safe mode, then you will double left click on "Start">Control Panel>User Accounts>Change an Account.
Now you can change your password,delete the account,etc.

I need my computer back to the way it was when I bought it do I do a clean installation


laptop model is aspire 5570 Z with a Z zee instead of 2 two

First, BACKUP WHAT YOU WANT!!!!! IT WILL BE GONE WHEN YOU FINISH!!!!! If you cannot get to your files, start in safe mode and collect them. if you cannot get to safe mode. grab a linux live cd, such as knoppix, you can boot a whole linux os from cd without installing and retrieve your files VIRUS FREE!!!!! once you feel you have backed up what you want to keep follow these insructions.

    • 1 Reboot your computer. As the computer comes on, click the "F2" key on your keyboard. This will activate the BIOS utility screen.
    • 2 Locate the Acer disk-to-disk recovery system on the first screen of BIOS and click the box to enable it. This will allow you to reset the computer without a recovery disk. Save your settings and exit BIOS per the instructions on the screen.

    • 3 Restart the computer.
    • 4 Press "ALT + F10" on your keyboard as soon as the Acer logo appears on the screen.
    • 5 Follow the on-screen instructions to perform a system recovery and reset the computer to the factory default settings.

Aspire 2920 won`t start up


As it's rebooting try tapping the F8 key to get to safe mode. Choose Safe Mode with cmd prompt first. Once your pc starts enter the text chkdsk /f in the black DOS box and reboot. The laptop should go though a check disk and fix problems. May not completely repair your laptop, but it's a start.
