    There is a manufacturer fault on the acer aspire motherboards. I am having same issue with an Aspire 3100, and I have ruled the problem down to the IDE controller chip on the motherboard. It was either improperly soldered onto the motherboard, or is loose. You can tell this by putting a little pressure on the controller chip and the system should boot. Fixable by resoldering the chip onto the mb--- not a job for anyone.

    Hope this helps.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Pavilion dv7 keeps shutting down

  • This may not fix your issue but its worth a try ...let me know how it goes
  • If the computer appears to shutdown and then attempt to restart without displaying an error message, do the following to disable the automatic restart on error setting.
    1. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
    2. Click Advanced system settings , grant permission to continue if prompted, and then click the Advanced tab.
    3. Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section of the Advanced tab.
    4. Deselect the Automatically restart checkbox under System failure .
    5. Click OK to close the Startup and Recovery window, click OK again to close the System Properties window, and then close the Control Panel window.
    6. Restart the PC.
    Disabling the automatic restart setting allows time to view the error message that displays on the screen. Contact the manufacturer of the program or device that is causing the error for specific information about the error message.

    Power off automatically after 10 - 15 min

    Your hard disk has crashed. Take it in to a computer store (Microcenter, Fry's, TigerDirect, or Best Buy) to get a new one. The data on your computer's hard drive may not be able to be saved.

    Ram upgradation

    The system uses shared video memory, so it will always show less memory than actually installed.
    It's a good machine, but needs all memory it can get for Vista.
    Good luck
