Acer laptop stuck on Windows boot manager


1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

Acer aspire 1700 will not boot due to wrong hard drive download for mouse


Boot to safe mode and do a system restore from there.

Restart the computer and tap F8. Use the arrow key to highlight safe mode and hit enter.

Once inside safe mode, click on Start > PRograms > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

Select a date when you had no problem in the computer yet. Launch the restore. Wait for it until it completes the whole process.

Update all drivers. You can use RadarSync so that you won't have to undergo a lot of manual updates.

I can not get my Acer Aspire 5920 to load after turning on.


Try to see if it will boot in safe mode, by pressing F8 while the laptop boots up. If it allows you to boot in safe mode, try to do a system restore when you know that laptop was working with no problems. You can do this by clicking on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date and time when you know that the laptop was working with no problems. If this does not work or you cannot boot in safe mode (be aware that everything will look big in safe mode and when the computer reboots if asked how you want to start windows, choose start windows normally), try doing a recovery. This will restore your computer to the factory default settings when you purchased it. You can do this by booting the computer, when the acer screen appears hold down the ALT key and continuously press F10, this will open the recovery manager and you can restore it from there.

I hope this helps

Its on but just has a blank screen ??


First see if it will boot in the Safe Mode, pressing F8 when the computer starts up. Choose Safe Mode in the boot option. If it will boot in the safe mode. Restart the computer and press F8 again and select Start in the last known configuration. Hopefully
this will fix the problem. If not and you are running XP Pro, boot in the safe mode and do a restore. you get there by clicking Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore, choose a date that the computer was working and click Restore.

My Acer aspire 5100


If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
