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

SOURCE: Acer Laptop won't boot

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.

SOURCE: Shuts down abruptly after starting

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?

SOURCE: acer aspire 5570z wont boot to windows

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.
Thanks,
Lee

SOURCE: Acer laptop wont start up.

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.

SOURCE: my acer aspire 5520 keeps shutting down on boot

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.

Unplug the computer, hold the power button down until the laptop shuts down, then remove the battery. Plug in the charger, and try powering up. If all is okay, shut it back down, unplug it, and reinstall the battery. Then, plug it in and let it fully charge. Restart it, plugged in and with the battery installed. Good luck.

Before reaching the login screen, my Acer netbook (1G and 160G harddrive) keeps shutting down. A blue screen appears with programming language on it for a brief second and the computer immediately...


What OS is your laptop.

If you have the correct OS CD / DVD, you should try and boot from this.

Inserting your disk and powering up the laptop it should automatically boot from the CD / DVD.

Follow the onscreen steps, then your should at some point be presented with a repair option.

If the laptop doesnt boot off the CD / DVD please select the relevant option when booting up to

enter the BIOS.

From the BIOS change the boot order to boot from CD-ROm 1st.

Let me know how you get on.

My D620 starts to boot up then shuts down suddenly


could it be that your battery is no longer holding a charge?
try powering it up with the power pack attached (and ensure the light on the power pack is indeed lit) - it also could be that the laptop is not being charged by the power pack.

Laptop wont switch on fully


Did you press F8 as you boot up to get boot up options and did try the Last Known good Configuration and Safe Mode?
If these didn't work I suggest you re-install Windows.

Acer quit working


Well, the 1st thing to check is boot into safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can get to the desktop.

If you can, run system restore and then see if you can boot to normal mode.

If it shuts down, boot to the system BIOS, and see if the system will continue to run, if it does, then your issue is most likely a operating system problem or a hard drive problem causing an OS problem.

If the system doesn't shut down in BIOS, next is try to boot to a CD. You may have to remove the Hard Drive to exclude it from the issue. If the system boots to a CD and will continue to run, then we are pretty sure the HDD/OS is the issue.

Next would be trying to run diagnostics on the hard drive, if they fail, replace the drive. If they pass, reinstall WIndows.

Problem During Boot-Up


several things it could be but im going to look at the obvious the battery and cord hook up
laptops when plugged into contstant 120 power the battery is supposed to go into stand by mode and shut battery off so power dont leak into battery
if you have low battery with it plugged into 120 the comp will still think the battery is powering the laptop if battery dead then comp shuts down lack of power

other thing is somehow you caught a virus that reboots comp from dos screen mode
the main thing i always ask is what was the last thing that happened before it did what its doing now
example= was there a power surge pop up screens ect.
