Question about Acer Aspire 5742 Notebook
WHEN POWERING UP LAPTOP IT KEEPS TRYING TO BOOT UP IT STARTS UP AND SHUTS DOWN ABOUT 10 TIMES BEFORE WINDOWS STARTS UP.
If there is extreme heat inside the laptop, this happens. Clean the fan and put new thermal pste/thermal pad to processor and chipsets. Also check for power button problem or any stuck keys in the keypad.
Hope this helps

Just allow the updating to complete. Normally it does that as many times as the number of updates installed.
As of now there is no problem with your OS yet but if you will keep avoiding the updates to complete, it might be corrupted.
hope this Helps.

you mention that the power just dies,there is a fault with the Acer aspire 5630,when i opened up the system,i noticed that the dc port at the back of the system was a little loose,the terminals were loose,and it was not charging or powering up,the reason why this is happening on most laptops is because the dc jack that plugs into the dc port on your laptop is heavy,and it tugs at the port,if they made the jacks lighter for the ports,it would not be a problem,i have hard wired a mobile pord and took out the old one and fixed the problem,the problem i find with manufacturers is that they dont design laptops that well,the design them to break down,so people like me are always finding new ways to make them function longer,get some one to have a look at it,it could be that,maybe you have a old batery?

Insert a windows boot disc. Go into the bios select it to boot from CD-ROM first. Then you can go from there. If you get it to boot to windows disc, then you could start reinstalling windows. If you are still having issues then there is a more serious issue. If you have any other questions let me know.

You have corrupted files on your system, either from a hard drive beginning to go bad or from just a bad update, use your recovery console, either available during start up or by using the windows cd to boot your computer and have it run a recovery, you will have to re-apply some of your service packs afterwards. Another option in the recovery console is to use your system save points, if you have the recovery console installed then use it to restore your compter to a day before the update.

Insert your restore CD if errors are found and not fixed by the checkdisk function listed above. Turn your computer off and then back on. You'll beasked to hit any button to boot from your CD; press any key. You will then beasked if you want to install a fresh version of your OS or "Repair" acurrent copy. Choose the "Repair" option.
