Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Whenever my computer starts up and shows the Windows XP logo it shuts down and shows me while starting up that windows wasn't started up rite. Than after a week it COMPLETELY messes up. I've tried a FULL format AND I installed a fresh copy of Windows XP, from a CD that I bought(Brand new at a store). And still nothing, it just keeps coming back. I even tried staying off the internet AND not putting ANYTHING into for 2 weeks and it still does this.

It is one of 2 things....

1. It is overheating. Overheating will cause the computer to randomly shut down. You can usually decifer if it is overheating by trying to put the computer back on after it shuts down. For example , start it up...let it shut down...then try to put it back on again...if it doesn't come on at all, or if it shuts down even quicker then the previous time, you are most likely looking at an overheating issue. To remedy that you want to open up the case, clean out all of the dust with a compressed air can (be very careful not to tip the can, it will spray liquid), and verify that all of the system fans are running.

2. Could be any type of hardware failure - from the power supply to the hard drive. If you have completly ruled out the overheating issue, I would just take it to a shop to get diagnosed.

In order to run xp, load in cd/dvd drive and shut computer down, now press power, when logo pops up press F12 and select boot order using the arrows on the keyboard scroll up or down and highlight cd/dvd drive and press enter, that will start the cd installation process. Note! you may have a different F key number assigned for boot selection, when logo pops up look down bottom right for the correct F key number.

Acer Aspire One loops on start up screen. All it does is show the acer logo, then shows the ''windows was shut down improperly'' screen with all those options and then goes to the windows xp start up...


Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.

My computer starts but before booting it shuts down.


You may have lost part of your windows program. If you have a system restore disk, you can run a system restore and probably fix your problem.
Some of your windows files have gotten deleted. When windows gets to this point all windows knows to do is restart. A virus can cause this problem.
