Try starting into safe mode and set the display driver to a different resolution that you are sure your computer will display. it may also be an issue with the display adaptor when it switches to a specific resolution setting. windows loads your graphics settings at the time of log on.

Acer laptop display goes off after some second


Try booting into safe mode. Chances are that you have set the screen resolution and refresh rate to some value that the LCD cannot handle. That is why it works until Windows takes over. Once you are in Safe Mode you can get things under control.

Once i log onto my acer aspire one D255 the screen goes black and it wont even show me the task manager. i have already re booted and shut down


test it in safe mode. if it works, do a restore to a previous working date or last known-good configuration. if you cannot get to the Windows log in at all, reinstall your OS. if nothing shows up on the screen from the time you power it on, test an external display and if it does not work, sounds like your video card is faulty and needs a replacement

When i boot up i can choose to start windows normally : safe mode/ w/o networking blah blah but when it boots up the screen just goes black and never loads windows, What are the suggested problems, and/or...


Well first off, when you say 'but when it boots up the screen goes black', what option did you pick? I would try selecting 'Safe Mode with Networking" and see if you can't get into windows. If you can't get into windows in *ANY* mode, you're probably going to have to reload/repair the os instalation. If you can get into safe mode, install 'malwarebytes', an antimalware software, and see if it comes up with anything. If not, I would say that it could be a driver issue.

As i switch on the computer it loads and takes me to the user selecting screen and once when i click on any one of the user it gets high lighted and gets logged out automatically and comes back to the user...


as the computer is loading press F* repeatedly until you reach a black sceen with options you need to highlight option safe mode, once on the safe mode logon screen choose administrator, this logs you to the main user, this is where you can change user acounts who log onto the mechine, goto control panel and left click on user acounts, in here remove all acount passwords and click on change the way user log on or off and uncheck each section and reboot the mechine, hopefully you will have a diferent log on screen just log in with your user name and password and you should avoid the rebooting. hope this helps and post back if it is still the same.

Forgot my user password andcannot log on,how can i reset ?no disc


what OS are you using? XP Home or Pro? Vista? do you normally login with a username or login as "Administrator"?
You can try booting to safe mode by hitting f8 during the bootup process, choose safe mode and login as administrator without a password. If you still cannot get in that way, then you will need to use a program to reset the admin or user passwords. check this page:
http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm for instructions, but understand that there is a risk of corrupting data or filesystem when messing with these kinds of tools. Get a geek friend to help you if you're not sure what you're doing.

Cant log into windows 2000 husband said he wet in and disabled it and nothing is working


Log in meaning your account? If so restart the laptop, tap the "f8" key. and on the options displayed choose "safe mode", once you get to the log on screen select administrator log in and do a system restore to a date where everything worked fine.

Screen issue


Boot to Safe-Mode by pressing the "F8" key several times when you first see the windows logo screen. Answer "yes" to enter safe mode. "Right click" on "My Computer", select "Manage", then "Device Manager". Expand "Display Adapter" by clicking on the "+ sign" on the left side of Display Adapters. Highlight the Adapter listed under the Display Adapter line by "left clicking" on it. Then press the "right mouse button" and select "uninstall" to uninstall the display adapter. Now reboot you system (not safe mode) and see if it works. The display text may be very large now. If it works, you need to find your drivers cd that came with the computer and install the video driver using the above procedure but selecting "update driver" instead of "uninstall"
