Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Hi, My acer x3300 desk top computer does not start I see the black screen with the 'Acer Empowering People' ( the irony ) if I tap f12 I get 'please wait' and then nothing......... Any help very much appreciated
It could be a number of things. I would start with RAM or Motherboard. RAM is easy. If you have multiple sticks. Pull them all out and place them back in. If that is a no go and you have multiple, Pull all the sticks and put one in at a time. If it boots with one stick then you have a bad RAM stick. With all of that said, I would worry that it is motherboard since it won't take you to the BIOS screen.

I have the same model and had the same problem. Fortunately there is a simple fix - unplug all your USB devices (mouses, printers etc). It should now boot!
Assuming that fixed it, it was trying to boot from a USB drive for some unknown reason. I think it was due to the latest windows XP update. Wierd. Hit F12 next time you reboot and make sure it is booting from hard disk first.

I would believe it's a problem with your motherboard. If you warranty covers it, tell Acer about the problem and have someone fix it. Otherwise, find a PC repair shop near you, and take it in to have it tested. Make sure you figure out what is wrong exactly before you buy new parts if you take it to a repair shop.
