Question about Acer Aspire M1640 Refurbished Intel Desktop PC - Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 1.8GHZ, 1GB DDR2, 120

1 Answer

Windows will not start up, stuck on the blue screen.

I have an Intel pc, and i have been having some problems. In the past few weeks, the computer has been randomly restarting, and when it recovers, it shows a message that says "Windows has recovered from a serious error" then it works fine for a while. I dont know if this has anything to do with it, but I recently was trying to update my video card, i downloaded the update for it at least (I needed to get it updated because of Sims 2 errors). Just today, It froze while i was on the internet, and I held down the power button to reboot it. Now it turns on, but after the windows logo comes on, i see the regular blue screen that says "Windows is starting up..." but it has been on forever, and just gets stuck there when i reboot again. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

As your title indicates refurbished pc. you might be continuing the windows that came with your pc. My suggestion to get a clear solution. just reinstall windows again. and try to make backup of all the data in the windows drive or else you cannot recover.

With using, the computer without reason/ warning got stuck and I forced turn off the computer; then, tried to turn on again. It was not Boot. The power on, but it is stuck in there, no Boot. Help!


A couple of things spring to mind, but difficult not having the machine.

Upgrade to Windows 10 is automatic and your machine is trying to update and finding a problem. I would not load Windows 10 until Service Pack 1 comes out.

Also sounds if the processor is overheating. When you boot up, you can get into the BIOS, often by tapping Delete, or F10. There is usually a prompt onscreen during boot up. One of the screens in the BIOS tells you the processor temperature. If it rises over 60' you have a problem with cooling. The computer has a fail safe feature to save the processor by shutting down.

How do I get past the blue screen? Computer has been stuck on this for weeks. It has been rebooted, restarted, unplugged, still doesn't get past blue screen.


First unplug your machine and plug it back in and turn it on while its booting up you should see a message to press the F2 key to enter the BIOS. press that key, you will only have a couple of seconds to press it. Look for an option called First Boot Device, Boot Sequence, or something similar; press the arrow keys on your keyboard to select this field and then press Enter (You may have to select Advanced Options or another submenu to find it.) In the resulting screen, select CDROM/DVD and then press the Esc key until you return to the main BIOS screen. Follow the onscreen instructions to save your new settings and exit BIOS setup. Insert the installation disc (you need an installation disc of the operating system, if you dont have one you can find one on amazon, but if you needed to buy one you should consider upgrading to windows 7(more like vista) or Windows 8 (not really like vista)) once the disc is inserted restart the computer and follow the on-screen instructions

Have you tried booting in to "Safe Mode", your Blue Screen could be caused by wrong driver or other hardware issue...Booting into "Safe Mode" will load minimal drivers hopefully bypassing your problem.

Never nice to see the blue screen. What is the status of your PC, does it still reboot? If so, press F8 after BIOS boot before it start windows. From there go to safe mode and execute a virus scan first.
After this shut down and restart pc again.

Starts round and round in circles


HP and Compaq have issues just like that with several models. Go to the HP website and see if your model is one of them. If it is they will fix it for you at no charge, even if out of warranty. My wife just got hers back a few weeks ago for the same thing. They said they replaced the mother board. It took about 10 business days including shipping.
Hope this helps, if so please rate this assistance. Thanks,Tom

Blue Screen on Dell Vostro 1400


OK you can try a couple of things.

1. On booting the Laptop, hold down F8 key, then choose "Last known Good Configuration". Windows may now start correctly.

2. If this doesn't work, do the same, but choose "Boot into Safe Mode"

If neither works you may have to repair Windows...

NEW ACER ONE NETBOOK WILL NOT BOOT UP


Try Safe Mode.Disconnect every device (Mouse also)
Hit F8 at very beginning until you get a list of options select Safe mode and check if Windows starts.
then try step by step confirmation option.
say yes to every request until freeze: last driver you accepted to load is the culprit.
Remove it in Safe mode using Start/Run/Msconfig
