Go into safe mode and then go into MSCONFIG and click on the startup tab. You'll see a bunch of checkmarks in boxes of all the programs that are running. Disable all of them, and then restart the computer and let it go into windows normally. It it boots all the way normally then that means you had something running in the background that was causing windows to shut down and you'll have to figure out which program it was and uninstall it.

It will boot up but wont go past the loading screen


If your computer was installing updates before it shut down, just let it run for about an hour or so. I know this sound's weird but it depends on the speed and memory of your computer to finish doing what it needs to do. If after about an hour and it's still not at the desk top, then restart and start pressing F8 as soon as it boots up. If you see the windows logo you weren't quick enough. You'll get the option to "Boot from last known good configuration". It may appear under advanced boot options. Reboot using that selection and it may take longer than usual to get to the desktop but that should work. Here are a couple of sample screens

Factory reset on presario cq58


Back up to your external hard drive all of the items on the computer's hard drive that you would like to keep. The hard drive will be completely erased during the recovery process. Open the "Start" menu and then click "Shut Down" to turn off the computer. Allow the computer to completely shut down. Press the power button to turn on the computer and then press the "F11" button when "Press <F11> for recovery" is displayed on the bottom of the screen. Select "Recovery Manager" from the utility screen. Click "Advanced Options" and then select "System recovery." Click "Next" to proceed. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the recovery process.

Computer says its locked; change users, but my mouse is locked up too.Im using my desk top to contact you.


You can use the windows key to open the start menu, then use your arrow keys to hightight turn off your computer, hit the enter key, use your arrow keys to highlight restart and hit your enter key This will restart your computer and hopefully, unlock your mouse.

Let me know if this solution works for you. If all else fails, it is acceptable to push the power button until the computer turns off, then hit it again the turn the computer back on. This is not the normally acceptable procedure for shutting windows down, but in this case, it can be done without any negative repercussions.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi PC Notebook Laptop shuts down automatically


  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with all troubleshooting2_bing.gif, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
If this does not work you will probly have to go back to factory settings

Virus attack is a possible cause.
Always make sure that your antivirus is updated regularly. And your Windows updates are on. This increases security of your system.
Try booting in safe mode and run antivirus.
Steps to boot in Safe Mode:
  • If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
  • Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with all troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

Then scan your system for viruses through your antivirus.
If this doesn't work then, select Safe Mode with Networking as an option and access internet and update your Antivirus first then, scan your system.
If you have problems in updating your antivirus, please use following link to scan your system, Make sure you are in Safe Mode with Networking while you perform this step.
wish you all the best :)

Will not load past the "DELL" loading screen when you turn it on..wtf is wrong with it?!


hmm
ok try turning the computer on soon as you see any life at all hit f8.
or it maybe Shift f8 on yours. you may have to try both. but hit f8 you will see the advance menu screen. on advance menu screen select last known good configuration.
allow the computer to boot. if it gets to desk top perform a system restore to before the problem started. if not you will need to shut down again . boot the computer again as soon as you see any life . you will need to enter setup. you can do this by turning on computer soon as you see any life hit f1 or f2 or delete. it will be 1 of those keys that will get you into setup. in setup you will look to the upper left corner you will see where it says load default settings.
click on load defult settings. agree to it by clicking yes or by typing a Y.
now you will want to save your settings and exit the bios. the save and exit will also be there with load default button. click on save and exit.
allow system to boot.
Hope this was helpful.

All the start up item's are taken out of the registry, you can try doing a registry clean to see if it remove's this item during start up or, you can also disable program's at start up by going to the start tab at the bottom and clicking on it, then go to run, type msconfig in the run box, then click on ok, it will bring up a system configuration utility, there should be a tab that says start up, when you click on that tab it will bring up all the item's that run at pc start up, if it's not shutting down properly you may want to do a security scan, sometimes when a pc does not shut down right away it's because a program is still running in the background, that program need's to end it's process before windows can shut down. Try using (ctrl, alt, del) to bring up the task manager, check to see if there's any application's running.
