When your computer won't boot past the title screen or start-up screen, it usually means you have software problems or a virus.
Almost all Acer computers come preinstalled with a Windows operating system, which allows you to troubleshoot the operating system before locking up during the start-up screen.
Whether your problem is hardware or software-related, this technique allows you to access your desktop to retrieve all the items you want from your hard drive before completely reinstalling your operating system.

Click the power button. Within the first 10 seconds, a BIOS keystroke should pop up.
The keystroke to access the BIOS is usually the "ESC"+"SHIFT" keys.
"F8" is also an option for getting to the BIOS.
After keying the keystrokes, the BIOS screen is displayed.
Navigate through the BIOS system, which is the first system that your computer accesses.
The BIOS contains several commands and options to scroll through to modify various ways to start up your computer or reinstall the entire system.
It contains the booting options of your computer.

Navigate to the desired option with the arrow keys and select "Start in Safe Mode."
Safe mode is an operation your computer can run in which it doesn't use full capacity of your computer's hardware or software, but allows you to navigate to your computer's desktop and hard drive, regardless of an existing virus.
Restart your computer in Safe Mode and wait for it to boot.
After navigating to your desktop, begin dragging and dropping any information you want to save onto an external hard drive or USB thumb drive before the virus corrupts the files.

The notebook tries to boot upon power up but simply shows the Windows XP screen scrolling by and does nothing else . .


The windows on your computer is cleary corrupt and no longer able to start up.

one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore discs or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation


insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.

let me know if you have any questions or if you need anything else.
Thanks,
Ekse

Can't find ink levels for my HP Deskjet 5940


The installation disk for your printer has a setup wizard that monitors your ink levels in your printer. Go through the installation again as it will not hurt anything and you should find it on one of your pop up screens that it leads you to.

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen


I suggest you check the settings of your bios. Normally this happens if your Hard drive is unreadable. Change the settings of the boot function to first boot on Hard disk and try to disable all other bootable hardwares like CD or network card.


Hope this helps.
