The RAM maybe faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

SOURCE: My Acer aspire one wont start into normal windows, only safemode

Did your system come with any software? I know when I bought my aspireone it did not. However, You can purchase a thumbdrive with at least 4 gb of space and if you have a copy of windows xp of the same version as that which is loaded on your aspireone (should be windows xp home edition) and you can use a program like magicISO to create a copy of the windows xp cd onto the thumbdrive.

Hope this helps, and I would be more than happy to give you more specific support as needed.

Good Luck!

good day.
with that problem may be your unit cannot shut down properly so as early as possible you must done with a proper shut downing of your unit.
so if that message will appear select on the "Last Known Good Configuration" and press enter, if this message will appear again you need to format your windows.

SOURCE: As soon as I power

hi hope you are well, there could be a few issues that caused this, if you have another system where u can test that all components are working then try to do that, if you already did and nothing happened. Unplug the system and remove the battery. Hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then try powering up -- if it won't, the motherboard is faulty, and you'll need to replace it am really sorry could not be of further help..

My windows screen is black. How to fix?

Oh boy... take out the battery and unplug it. Hold down the 'On" button for 10 seconds... this clears out the little button battery memory inside. Connect everything back up and put the battery back in, if you have a laptop. You will have to go to another PC to learn the function"F" key to press while booting up to go into "Safe Mode". Computer mfrs use different F keys and I can't possibly remember them all! F6 is a common one, but your could be different. Choose Safe Mode with Networking. If you PC can't boot up to Safe Mode, replace the harddrive with a new one and insert the original Windows disc and reinstall the operating system. If you have an older operating system than Win7, don't bother. Buy a new Genuine Microsoft Win7 operating system of upgrade disk from your PC mfr and install it. VISTA was crap! Everything will install for you and you will have Internet Explorer as your default browser. Go to "Microsoft Update" and let it update your operating system for you. Then install Oracle's Java; Adobe's Acrobat Reader and Flashplayer. Then Firefox, Itunes, Quicktime, and any other software you use. IF you systems DOES boot up normally in Safe Mode, we can fix it. Go Start, then type in "cmd" in the window and a new screen will pop up... it's also black, but don't worry! Type in "chkdsk/f" without the quotation marks exactly from where the blinking cursor is and hit the ENTER key and let you PC fix itself... be patient, it takes time. Reboot and everything should be fine for you.

I want to know if it is possible to use a webcam in safe mode

No. Safe Mode is only for troubleshooting. It loads minimal drivers just for that reason.

You have a bigger problem if you can't access Windows normally.

Damaged screen so i plugged in a moniter but now windows wont operate properly.and the screen on the moniter wont load fast enough to launch safe mode or factory reset should i reinstall windows by making...

LOL a Recovery CD should be made when you first purchased the system. Now that you have it all bugged up, I would doubt that a Recovery CD you make now would even work. Most times the ones you make anyway don't work.

I think you should turn off the laptop, turn it on and immediately start hitting F8 repeatedly to get into Safe Mode. I've never heard of a situation where the monitor wont load fast enough to launch safe mode.

If that's the case it sounds like you need to fix the problem with the laptops lcd screen.

What do you mean when you say windows wont operate properly? I think you've got viruses or infections that you need to get rid of.

I was wondering if it is possible to play Wizard 101 on Safe Mode with networking? I can only go into Safe Mode for now until I get my computer fixed.

Hi there! Playing Wizard 101 in safe mode will be possible but I don't suggest you do it because in safe mode all the drivers are disabled and that also includes your video card driver which will cause the game to hang.

Hope this helps!

The nexxtech hd portal 720p installation disk comes up on my mac desktop but when i click on it, it goes in to a file and i can't seem to instal anything everything either has no default application...

I have the same unit and it works fine on my Mac Mini. All the stuff on the disk is for PCs, not Macs. You don't need to install any drivers for this webcam when using it with a Mac. Just plug it in and it will work. If you are using it on Skype, for example, you have to select "preferences" / "sound" and then change the "input" to USB. That will make the microphone work. You can adjust the mic input volume in your Mac "System Preferences" / "Sound." This is one of the few cameras out there with a mic that works through the USB, so don't give up on it too easily!
I get a very slow frame rate with this camera, but I've had the same problem with every other webcam I've plugged in!! Otherwise the quality is fine. If anyone knows why my frame rate is so slow, I would appreciate your ideas!

No, it is not hopelessly broken. I would suggest this:
When you start it, get into safe mode. Do this by tapping on the F8 key soon after you turn it on. When you see the white menu on a black screen, choose safe mode and let it start. Once it starts, you can do the troubleshooting. In your case, I would suggest doing a system restore back a few days when you know it was working.
That should do it.
