AcerPower 1000 keeps shutting down

Especially when I first turn on the AcerPower 1000 desktop computer, sometimes it powers-down 3-4 times before I can start using it. Occasionally after 30-45 minutes it will shutdown (always without warning). I've tried to change the power supply, but that does seem to help. Any ideas?

    We just had a new shipment of computers come into work. Out of the 10 computers we had to send back three because of this same problem. The reason for this problem is the motherboard. There is a bad chip or something on your motherboard. Hopefully your computer is still under warranty because you are going to have to have the motherboard replaced.

My Acerpower F2 computer has always worked fine until I unplugged my computer for a few hours and then tried to plug it in again. Now all it will do is turn on for about 2 or 3 seconds and then shut off....


It could be the on board battery needing replaced type CR-2023 3volt it keeps the Bios Memory setting when you shut down your computer they should be replaced every year or so.

AcerPower F1 desktop boots fine after about 10


More likely it's from overheating; if it would be from the power supply ithe shutdown would be more random.
But it could also be a malware infection - especially if it happens EXACTLY after the same amount of time . Check what processes are active just before shutdown .

No 12 volt power output from my acerpower 1000 motherboard


This seems to have a motherboard none too dissimilar to that of a laptop. It's hard enough to get information on a typical desktop motherboard, and those for laptops are even more obscure. You are not however dead in the water yet. The power supplies usually have fuses on the board, they are usually either blue or green, sometimes have a little "hourglass" on them. You can check them with an ohmmeter. If you're lucky, there's one blown from an earlier fan or drive problem. Hope you can find it and a replacement.

AcerPower 1000 -- VERY slow loading


Your potential problem might be a virus. If you are having an updated anti-virus software and are running regular scans and found nothing, Then this might be the problem, while making the system get restored, the frequent problem is that, xp doesn't load the drivers which you installed for your system and it loads its own drives (which sometimes won't go with your devices). Try installing the drivers (especially display and motherboard drivers). If this doesn't work, I better suggest that you do a complete format of the system and install windows xp afresh.. Then there should be no problem. These're the possible solutions which i can infer from the details you've given..

Regards..

Acerpower SV PC will Not turn off


More information would help to resolve this issue.

Are you shutting down by selecting Start and shutdown or have you tried pushing the power button on push (not holding the power button)?

Try this:
Press and hold the power button in solidly for about 10 seconds. If it shuts down before you get to 10 just let off the power button. This should work, but may not solve the problem.

If you reboot it and still can not shut down from Windows, hold power button until it shuts down, unplug the power cord and disconnect everything from the computer other than the keyboard, mouse and monitor. With the power plug still unplugged, hold the power button in for about 15 seconds (this resets the power supply and can clear a corrupt BIOS).

Reconnect power and after booting, see if you can shut down from Windows.

If still no go, click Start, Programs, Accessories, System tools and select System Restore.

Follow the prompts and select a bold date back to a time before you had problems shutting down. That should do the trick.

Let me know if you get it fixed or if you need more advice.

Acerpower 1000 - won't boot (or POST);


I had to start my acerpower 1000 four or five times. When it boots into windows, it lasts for about a minute, then shuts off.
When booting into safe mode, the PC will stay on forever. I would think a hardware problem would cause it to always shut off.
This is not a solution, but something I have observed about these machines.
