Question about Acer TravelMate 8204WLMi Notebook

1 Answer

Keeps resetting Alright my dad's acer keeps resetting itself. It gets to the startup screen which is the screen with Acer across the middle and is surrounded by a white background etc. Anyways it'll just get to that screen and then it'll reset itself. I can use F2 to enter setup but that's about it. How I think the problem happened: Alright my little brother said something like Itunes wasn't working so he reset the computer. Something came up like an error message or something so I held down the power to shut it off. So was that the fatal mistake or something?

Re: Keeps resetting

Try pressing F8 on start up this will take you into safe mode, then when the options menu comes up choose 'Last Known Good Configuration' and then press enter, for a restart. If the problem persists the boot.ini file may be damaged and you will need the windows cdrom to repair the system, if you dont have one borrow a copy off a friend and use your license number under your notebook, this is legal; as this is what you pay for not the cd.

How to factory reset acer aspire 5610 alt + f10 not working

There is no way to reset if you cannot get into the Alt + F10 partition, if you can boot into windows ok then it can be factory defaulted by entering the Acer recovery manager, but if not then you will have to keep trying as it can be difficult to get into, i personally find pressing both keys together once every second does the trick and it has to remain constant, when you see the white line across the bottom of the screen stating "windows is loading files" then simply follow on screen instructions.

Acer aspire one AOA110 tries to start up but keeps looping back to the startup screen. Goes throught a lenghty disk check and goes back to startup screen.

Possible hard drive errors I would say.
Try and start it from your restore disk or your System disk and back up your data them replace the hard drive.
Hope that helps.

Continuously rooboot itself?


When the laptop keeps rebooting shortly after Windows starts loading the reason is usually because the system files loaded by Windows at startup are corrupted.
Windows cannot complete booting and keeps restarting.
The fastest way to Fix the problem is by reinstalling Windows.
If Windows is installed on the same directory of the existing system performing an upgrade installation, the setup process will preserve all personal files, most installed software and settings.
Before reinstalling Windows you can try starting in safe mode (eg. on XP pressing f8 on startup). If the computer starts in safe mode, go to system restore and perform a restore to a date before the problem occurred. Unfortunately when the computer keeps re-booting ut will hardly start in safe mode. Often reinstalling Windows is the only option available.

My acer computer keeps shuting itself down

Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.

Try a System Restore once there, to pick a Restore Point before your problem..

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a time previous to last update > Next > etc
