Hp pavilion dv4 2045dx keeps freezing and shutting down


It seems that you have a virus and it is running at boot.
first try to boot in safe mode and see if the computer stay up.
"Restart... hold the f8 key down until you see the boot option menu and select: "Safe Mode with Networking"If your pc still shut off and freezes then is not a virus and it is a hardware issue, possibly power issue or heating issue with the CPU.If it is ok in safe mode, then you need to remove the virus in safe mode. Download antivirus program that support safe mode operation.after successful removal of the viruses, reboot in normal mode and edit your msconfig, to remove any running programs that might be viruses.
If you continue to have a problem, I can log gin to your PC and fix it myself, just download teamviewer and contact meTony

The acer travelmate 3270 freezes after signing / logging in


Could be an issue wth the OS. Take a data backup and do an OS reinstallation. or you can do a complete system recovery by the recovery manager in the notebook.

Start>All Programs>Acer>Acer Erecovery Management

Allow the program to run. Select the option 'Restore'. Click on 'Completely Restore to Factory Defaults". then click on start or ok and let it restore.

Doe's the acer aspire 7315 have a built in mic


Once the power button is pressed to turn On, keep tapping the F8 button on the keyboard until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" with the lists of options including "Safe Mode", "Safe Mode with Networking" etc...etc... Verify which option is selected by default, move the up-down arrow keys on the keyboard to navigate through the options and press enter to proceed with the selected options, i.e. Safe Mode (in your case), once the enter is hit, you'll see black screen with white texts, wait for several seconds/ or a few minute and proceed, you'll also see a warning pop up message, if so click "yes", there you are in the safe mode.

If you need further help, let me know

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Windows recovery disk with safe mode


Try this. While you are in Windows click on Start>programs>accessories>system tools then click on system restore. You will be asked to choose a date, choose a date before this started happening it should reset your computer to that date. In the meantime, yes, you need to get a copy of your operating system from www.microsoft.com so you can fix problems in the future.

Safe mode with networking


Re-install windows.
Being a new computer it should have come with recovery discs.
Put it in and restart the computer and follow the prompts.

Automatically stops and starts


This is usually because of a bad driver. Boot the computer and press F8 every half second until you see a black&White text menu - then choose safe mode boot

If it does boot then try System Restore back to earlier point in time.

Report back what happens?

Acer 5610z will not start


I had the same problem with my neices Acer 5100...Went into safe mode, it loaded the drivers and sat that for what seemed forever...almost like it was hung up....I had a few things to do...and a couple hours later, it finally booted into safe mode.

I was able to save her files, but ultimatly ended up wiping everything out because of the corrupt files.

On another Acer, the same hang up "unable to boot into safe mode" even after a long period of time, and that Acer was a total loss..had to format...

I presume nothing was saved to a CD? i.e. her gsce files?

Doing a factory restore/reset will loose everything.

Try to boot into safe mode and allow it to boot up...see if it eventually comes up...I will keep reading for a solution other than the two here...and will post as soon as I find one...
Unfortunately, Acer do not have a good fix for most of their computer problems....
