Just bought a Acer Aspire, my old computer and I mean old, I just shut it down, but I know this is not good for the machines, when I log off on this new one, the blue light stays on the keyboard and the mouse laser light stays on, is this normal, could you tell step by step how to log off and what stays on. Thank you

Logging off does not shut down the pc, you want to eaither standby (sleep mode) or shut down.

If you running windows vista you would press the start button on the bottom left corner, select the little arror next to the lock and power icons and then select eaither shut down or sleep (sleep mode will still use some power and drain your batter but will turn on mutch faster when you need to use the laptop again)

If you are going to have the laptop off for more then a few hours you should just shut down unless you are leaving it plugged in to the ac adapter.

If you log off you only close your user session under windows, not turn off the computer.

If you suspend you turn off almost everything in the laptop like hardwire, cd or dvdrom and most peripherals but the computer stays on the consuming power.

If you hibernate what windows does is to store all in memory in a temporary file in the hard drive and turn off all the computer so when you turn it on again it will be as you last session with all your programs and documents you left open.

And if you turn off the computer it will close all your programs, close windows and turn off all the hardware.

Acer Aspire One D255E battery meter says 100% charged but computer shuts down when you unplug power cord


That's often the sign of a worn-out or defective battery. They appear to charge but don't store enough energy to work. It's also possible the motherboard's power circuit isn't working. The only way to know for sure is to have a known good battery as a test, or to try your battery in another computer. If your computer works with a good test battery, or your battery causes another computer to shut down, you know you need a new battery. If the trouble continues with a good test battery, you'll need to have the computer serviced.

When ever i log on the computer says configuring update 3 of 3 0% complete do not shut down. Then it shuts down on it's own and keeps doing the same thing over and over.


Turn on the computer, and as soon as it it on, keep on tapping F8 key until you see a black screen with white text. Choose the Last Known Good Configuartion option.

My Acer Aspire 4315 Can't Shut Down Normally


That usually means a Windows problem (not hardware).

The best way to identify the issue is installing a fresh copy of Windows and all of the updates (I know is a lot of work) and see if still happening (i bet it won't)

Good luck!

Laptop won't shut down normally!


You should go to the BIOS and load the default settings. Also, check your device manager to check if all hardware is installed and functioning properly (no conflicts, etc).
