Question about Computers & Internet

I have an Acer Aspire 5100-5300 and when I turn it on it shows the updating screen it gets to 93% complete updates, but it does not go pass that. It then restarts and goes right back to the same screen and only updates to 93% I can not get past this screen.

The issue is with the updates which have been downloaded on the system ... so u can do one thing when you see the first screen where u see the memory counts start tapping the F8 key and than select the option that is safe mode and when u get the loggin screen if you have the option for administrator than loggin in to that account and if u dont have that option than go in to ur account and than it will give u a pop up select the yes option and than when u have the desktop click on the start > programs > system tools > system restore and than select the date when the system was working fine ... but mind it if u had installed any software after that date it will be lost ... the system will restart on its own and the issue would be resolved

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.

I am not sure which you are talking about either. But I will venture to say that I had a similar problem once where setup would not complete on my system either. I initially thought that I had a bad or dirty disc but later after running a few tests, I found out that my HDD was full of bad sectors. Thus I ended up replacing the HDD and all is well. I would try running a stand alone formatting software or you could try doing a complete format vs. a quick format during Windows setup. If setup still won't complete after a complete format then run a surface scan or a HDD regenertion program to verify the integrity of the drive. This will tell you if you have a bad drive or not.

That's a memory or RAM error. You need to re-seat the ram of your machine.

Whenever I log on, it stops on a screen that says 3 out of 3 updates loading-o%, then it shuts down, and turns back will do this over and over until you finally shut it down.

You appear to have a Windows Update that is corrupt and not finishing the installation of the update.

Depending on the version of Windows, in your Windows Update screen should be an option to look at past updates.

You need to remove one update at a time until the screen showing an update in progress dosn't reappear.

Then I would attempt to redownload the updates via Windows update again.

Acer Aspire 1800 Won't boot

I recently had Acer Aspire One Laptop with very similar symptoms: No screen, no lights (those that indicates activities) except Power button. I first thought the Hard Disk is dead but it's not.
I contacted Acer helpdesk in Australia and they have sent me a document with BIOS update and instructions. I did what it says and then the laptop is back to normal. Yours may have the same issue - need BIOS update. The Aspire One BIOS update requires a FAT USB drive with the updated BIOS and the BIOS Flash program, plugged it in, press and hold 2 buttons: Fn and Esc, then press Power button for a while.
You should seek Acer Support website. But you may need proof of purchase.
