Simple... start to boot your system and press the F8 key to bring up windows boot options screen. select the option disable reboot on system error. then reboot machine and all is good. and let it run check disk... the command prompt syntax for the command is chkdsk c:/f <enter> and it will scan you harddrive and fix any errors. that should stop the rebooting if you disable reboot on system error using the F8 start up option...
later.

Sounds like there could be a major problem with the hard drive.

Have you got an XP or Vista cd? NOT a restore cd.

    If you're going to try TheAcerKing's suggestion change the chkdsk /f to chkdsk /r

    That will run a more through check on the hard drive.

Smart failure.. bootmgr is missing..I have recovery discs but dvd player is not working


Yes, you can make USB boot drive. However main problem is the Smart... error. It is your hard drive. You need to fix that first! Try reseating the drive. Next go into BIOS by pressing F key during boot. Might be F2? Make sure BIOS recognizes the hard drive.

Once you get the drive going again, you can start the install / repair again. USB drive tool.

Starts up then shuts down within 3-5 seconds


is this happening everytime you start the machine? What is being displayed on the screen? Do you hear the fans running when you press the power button? Do you hear the disc drive running? Do you hear the cd drive click once and the light on the cd drive door come on for a second or two? Is it posting anything on the screen during the boot process? Is it getting to the actual windows desktop which is where you see your icons? Computers shut down for a reason. Either some piece of hardware is not working such as a fan, or some hardware is faulty (such as the memory, cpu or motherboard), or some software issue or a virus has taken over.

After charging battery, when I press start, it attempts to start and then immediately shuts down. After recharging the battery a while, and attempting restart, the same thing happens again.


Hi

Have you tried to use your computer when power charger is connected to power supply? Then try it to check if your computer does not shut down. If do not shut down it self. You had problem with the battery or with charger not compatible with the battery. Normal problem of shutting down computer is that your battery have no charge, your battery is not compatible with your laptop or ever defective. Tr

The beeps are a code to let you know what failed during the Power On Self Test (POST)

Count the beeps - and whether long or short. (Like 3 longs and 2 short, etc)

Go online to the Soony web site, or search for Sony POST codes. A list of codes will tell you what is failing - such as ram - or hard drive, etc. I suspect the latter.

My acer computer trys to start up when i press the power button but then shuts down by itself before booting up. is this a hard drive problem or something else? thanks, bret


bret5110,

Your system may be running issues during it's POST (Power-On Self Test). Does the system make any beeps or noises (Sounding somewhat like Morse code) during the startup? If so, record the number and length (Short or long) of the beeps, and check with your computer manufacturer for what the computer is trying to tell you. It could be anything from bad RAM, issues with the HDD (Hard Disk Drive), or even the motherboard itself.

Another issue could be the system is overheating. When you turn the system on, do you hear the fan begin to spin? If not, you may need to replace the fan out.

Hope this helps.

Hi!

It is not yet the end for your machine. The error codes refers to a faulty hard drive. You'll need a new hard drive for replacement and that will fix the problem.

Should you have any other questions just leave a message.

All the best!

My computer doesnt work.


It happened to me , I changed the hard disc. However , similar thing happened to my friend , I reloaded the windows . Its fine and working. Try latter one as a first resort. Just start the comp hit the F12 /F8 , select the reboot disc as the first option , insert the disc and restart. If you press and hold the power button , it will stop and press again to start. it will boot the disc and may reload. If this is not working take a chance changing the hard drive. You may get it for 15 quid or so. Try few thing before giving for repair. Make sure that your disc drive is working. All the best.
