Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

I was installing a program, and the screen went black adn the system shut down.

I was installing a program, WoW, and the screen went black and shut down. it may be a battery thing, because on the front the battery light is flashing orange when i hit the power button. However when i plug the ac adapter into it nothing happens, same orange light problem. i think the ac adapter is working because it has a green light while it is not into the comp but plugged into the wall and when i plug it into the comp it flashes a dim green. any assistance would be great.

Reinstalling windows

reboot with your xp disc still in the tray, if it didn't corrupt your install, it will just start where it left off with no harm no foul.
If you have any question about weather it went in as it should, start the process over again, install a"fresh copy" of xp (hit ESC when it asks) format the hard drive and go again.
The black screen with the blinking at the top left is you system is looking for the program to run,
I think I would start all over...
Good luck, please leave a rating...thank you kindly

Switch off and on your PC and hold down the F5 key and this should bring up your PC in Safe Mode. If this fails, then find a PC repair shop to replace the power supply.

My computer restarts continuously

From another computer, download Glary Utilities and save the installation on a flash drive. Boot your system into safe mode by pressing F8 before you see the Windows Starting screen (while still seeing black), use arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode". Once it's booted into Safe Mode, install Glary Utilities and do the one button fix. That may solve the problem. I suspect you have a virus. Alternatively, once in Safe Mode, do a system restore (Clicking: Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore), and pick a date to restore to the is before the date the problem appeared. Get a good AV program like AVG (

Theres no display on screen

by shutting the screen you have activated power saving followed by hibernation.when you lift screen and press power a screen appears telling you what programs are currently running and your icon to removing battery you have (computer term) illegally shut down,possibly with programs running,which incidently is a good way to loose sys32. which would require a repair or install.
Not ur case as of yet.restart ur pc and press f 8 about 4 seconds later .black screen with options appear ,navigate to start windows with last good will restart with last good settings .
if you choose to go asleep whilst a program is running you can configure windows not to go into power save mode or hibernation,turn off hd,turn off pc etc .
if you right click mouse in any space on desktop,select properties,screensaver, can change settings there to suit.

Dunno whats the problem

Start computer in safe mode and do a system restore to any date before the one when you installed the pc game. On Windows xp you find it in 'start menu'- 'accessories' - 'system tools' - 'system restore'

Check video card or video card cable or, your worst scenario would be..............A Virus has shut you down. Especially if you were downloading music without a virus program and anti-hacker protection, you probably just got zapped.
