Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Apire One keeps shutting down almost immediately

I have a fairly new Acer Aspire, bought in Dec. 2008. Its operating system is Windows XP. I had the software for Verizon wireless put on the machine and was using it but could not see or use typical wireless networks. Yesterday, I was at my university's Help Desk and asked them to help me access the university secure wireless network. They did and I was able to access the secure wireless network. I went home and used another unsecured wireless network that was available last night. Today, I came in at tried to use the computer at a meeting.
The computer started but said that Windows did not start successfully and that software or hardware changes may have caused this. It then gave me several choices about starting ....normal mode, safe mode, last good configuration... etc.
Regardless of what I chose or how many times that I tried, the computer would, at best, show the Windows screen and then shut down almost immediately without, I think, actually launching Windows.
I brought it back to the Help Desk and they could not figure out the problem. The person said he thought it might be a hardware problem.
However, I wonder if it is ''just a coincidene'' that the other changes were made just yesterday. mmmmmmm. What do you suggest to fix this problem? Thank you.

    Thanks...but I do have some new anti virus software. Kerpensky....or something like that. It is Russian I think.



    Anyway, I was searching on line and found a Acer eRocovery Management manual online. The first page said to press

    ALT and F10 (same time) while Windows was on screen. Also I saw was the Windows screen, no more. I did it and held it down for what seemed like a long time (a minute or two) and then....voila....

    my desktop came up. It seems like a miracle.

    Thanks for trying. Maybe this find will help someone else.

Reinstall the operating system, you got some registry virus. I think you don't have anti virus installed .

Your CPU is overheating. When this happens the safety mechanism causes your computer to shutdown to prevent further problems. The CPU fan will need to be replaced.

I have an aspire 6920 which is only just over a month old- every now and again when shutting down it takes about 20-30mins to shut down- then says that there has been a system driver power failure- reboots...


Have you been installing and uninstalling programs? if yes then you need to clean your Windows Registry. If not doing so then some of your drivers have got corrupted and need re installing. it is basically a SW prob. Go to
http://komku.blogspot.com/2008/07/acer-aspire-6920g-windows-xp-and-vista.html
and download the drivers and reinstall them.

Windows vista on Accer aspire 5315 reboots over and over


Try starting in safe mode (press f8 on start up) once in safe mode use system restore to restore your operating system to a earlier point.
For XP
Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
For Vista
Start - all programs - maintenance - backup and restore center
