Question about Acer PC Laptops

1 Answer

Acer 5610 starts but does not boot.

Starts but does not boot, fan and HD light comes on then shuts off after a few seconds. I checked the HD in another pc and it is ok. I replaced the memory with new and no change. I removed all of the items, HD, optical, battery and tried that and all still the same. Something on the board probably. What do repair shops do when you send it to them that claim they can repair the mobo for $100 or so?

Toshiba A135-S4527 starts to power up then shuts down.


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

I have a problem with my notebook computer. First when I booted it up it ran a ckdisk. After it was done it shut down and when I rebooted it it comes up with Windows error recovery that says windows failed...


well there are a few things you can do here.

1. when you first start it up hit R many times to bring you to the recovery tool and run a HD error scan to see if it will give you an error code to work from.
2. when booting up hit F2 many times to bring up the setup tool when there you should see your HD and witch one it boots from first you want yours to be the primary to boot from set it to that.
3. when ya boot up hit F11 to bring you to the bios and look for your HD and click on and set to primary as well and save and exit and reboot normally.
4. once you get it up and running then go to download.com and get (A squared) virus removal tool, and get (Ccleaner) PC cleaner and optimizer use both and are very safe programs both free

if these methods don't work then call me and will go through together ask for Travis A. at 952-451-0518
the fixist good luck and have a nice day
