    I have the same problem. I used to have an Asus which would allow me to reinstall windows without using a disk. It's wonderful ACER doesn't ahve the same thing. How do I get windows to still be genuine when I reinstall it?

Will not boot to safe mode imac g4


Starting up in Safe Mode Follow these steps to start up into Safe Mode.
  1. Be sure your Mac is shut down.
  2. Press the power button.
  3. Immediately after you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be pressed as soon as possible after startup, but not before the startup sound.
  4. Release the Shift key when you see the Apple logo appear on the screen.
After the Apple logo appears, it may take longer than usual to reach the login screen. This is because your computer is performing a directory check as part of Safe Mode.
To leave Safe Mode, restart your computer without pressing any keys during startup.

Edata security not properly installed then shuts down comp


Hello Lilian,

If you start the laptop in safe mode, you should be able to uninstall acer edata security. It is not a necessary application ant this should solve the issue. To start the laptop in safe mode, start tapping the f8 key when you see the acer logo when you power the laptop on. You will get a black screen with white print offering you several startup modes. Choose 'safe mode' and boot into windows. If e-data security will not uninstall in safe mode (not all programs do) then you should either take it to a shop for repair, or back up your data (if you can boot into safe mode), and restore the laptop to factory original condition. To do this, press the alt and f10 keys together repeatedly right when you see the acer logo at power on. It make take a few tries to get the timing right on your key pressing, but this will initiate the routine that will restore the laptop to the original windows installation it shipped from the factory with. THIS WILL DESTROY ALL DATA ON THE C: DRIVE - MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BACKED UP ANY FILES YOU NEED TO AN EXTERNAL DRIVE BEFORE PROCEEDING. If you still have issues, then get back to me and I will help.
Regards,

Joe

Toshiba equium l20-197 booting


Chances are that it is a driver problem, try booting in safe mode by pressing f8 during the initial bot up process and selecting safe mode, with or without networking, if your systems goes in to windows then you have a drive issue, as safe mode loads with only the basic drivers needed to run windows, hope that helps

Computer seems to turn on except for the screan.


You may have gotten a virus that started with the windows openning. Normally use ALT-F4 to shut these screens down fast. Always ensure you are running an up to date virus checker. But, your subsequent actions may have caused irrepairable damage to your OS. Do you have a virus check disk you can start with? Worst case, do you have your windows disk? You may need to re-install windows to get a clean start. If you need to do this but have data that you must not lose, try pressing F8 during startup and starting in safemode with prompt. You can retrieve data in this mode if you need to (if you don't know how, ask, or research command prompt and windows directories).

Every time i boot up my acer aspire 5315 laptop I always get a black screen and the computer freezes?


Please try to reboot in Safe mode after Tapping F8 Key during start.

If the option for run in safe mode not appear you need to do it again.

After then, when you login at desktop, do the following:

  1. Click on Start
  2. Open the Run window,
  3. Type msconfig, then click 'OK'.
  4. Go to the Services tab, find the 'Background Intelligent Transfer' service.
  5. Disable it, apply the changes & reboot.
Also at startup tab in msconfig, and in the Startup Tab
Disable the items which you think not necessary to come during startup.
THis will help you lot to reduce the time being taken in Startup.


Hope it will work for you.
