    I recieve a Kernal error just after my screen freezes. For no apparent reason my computer will stop working. I changed the ram and motherboard but still problematic. Now it will not boot up sometimes. Often, it will just cease working and shut down.

Yes very possible. More likely is the the BIOS chip is bad. I have seen sites to purchase new BIOS chips on the intenet or contact ACER to if it is cost worthy BIOS chips clip out of the motherboard as a separate item.   Recovery CDs are available from ACER.

My Acer M5640 desktop lately when start up, after the beep nothing appear on the screen, hv to turn off the power and try again, somtimes it will be ok, what's the problem?


As the computer gives the beep it shows it is working, it has pass the Power On Self Test.

Your problem is a loose connection, either at the Graphics card slot or on the monitor VGA ports.

Check the VGA ports at both the Graphics card and at the monitor. Also clean the RAM modules of dust and reinstall.

Take care!

Computer will not load up - frozen on acer start screen?


Are you sure the monitor is plugged into the correct port? Also, check the monitor cable for bent pins. A small move shouldn't make this kind of difference. Eliminate that power strip and just plug the computer and monitor into an outlet.

My Acer Aspire T310 won't go past the Acer screen and the Keyboard and Mouse don't work


Yours may be a little old computer and the cmos battery (on the mother board)is drained out. Replace this battery. You need a working keyboard.
