The OS is not booting on your lappy! You will need to recover it either by pressing ALT + F10 on your Acer however this has the drawback that you will lose any documents you have on the laptop but will bring it back to factory status.

Also there is the possibility that you might have some CD in the drive which is booting up and blocking the whole thing so please make sure that there isn't any CD's in there. If you do not want to lose the data on your computer you will have to take out your hard drive, put it in another computer copy its contents but NOTE DO NOT Format the Acer aspire 3050 drive as it is specially formatted. If there is nothing else to save the better so you can just recover it to when it was new using alt+f10 at boot up.

Hope that this was of help to you :)

Best Regards

    Hi again,

    Definitely not the case! You will not need a new HD for sure. The hanging up might come from other issues. Hanging up on a PC may also be caused by faulty RAM at times not necessarily a Hard Drive. As for Acer drives. The you usually have a recovery partition which contains 2 EISA partitions. Usually these would be containing the factory restore drive images and EVENTHOUGH YOU FORMATTED they are still there! I think I will have to go into more detail to check if you still have the recovery partitions or not.

    Go on My computer in your "not so functional windows" >> right click >> go to manage and from there you should be able to go to disk management. Find your hard drive. This will be shown as a I colored box (usually blue). Take a look at how many divisons it has. Each subdivision in disk management on your partition has a partition type. If you find some EISA partitions in there chances are that you will still have the factory recovery. If so then it is just a question of enabling it from CMOS setup and pressing the activation keys and start up (before windows starts). The recovery keys are either CTRL+F10 or CTRL+F11. and voila! this will bring back Windows as factory new.

    Regarding tthe hanging up. Depends on the type of hanging

    - Funny glitches on screen flickering funny colours n stuff running about - Faulty Video Card

    - Illegal operations galore.... programs acting funny ... hanging up as well typically RAM

    - Programs hanging up completely windows jamming (INCLUDING POINTER). The computer like somewhat freezes completely - faulty hard drive.

    So do not be to quick to judge that its a faulty hard drive.Make the necessary checks! I hope this guide was of help to you :)

Hibernate issue

Boot the computer into Safe Mode and try changing the Power Options.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

My acer aspire one laptop screen is completely white how can i fix it

Power down the laptop (press and hold the power button).

Try turning it back on, and hitting the F8 key to get boot options. Start in "Safe Mode" or some other configuration that worked and see if that fixes the issue.

If the screen does not show anything at all, try connecting the laptop to an external monitor while starting up.
