Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Booting problem My Acer Aspire One froze, so I had to improperly shut it down, and now, when I turn it on, it dosen't boot. The screen comes up, and the options are "Safe Mode", "Safe Mode with Networking", "Safe Mode with Command Prompt", "Last Known Good Configuration", and "Start Windows Normally". I've tried all of them. When I choose "Start Windows Normaly" or "Last Known Good Configuration", it loads normally. It shows the Windows XP loader, and after that is done, it shows the Acer Aspire One background, but then it just stays there. When I choose any of the safe modes, it just shows a blank screen after it loads. I'm not sure whats wrong.

You may have to boot from a CD and make a repair.
Once logged in the CD, choose repair option (Recovery Console), and type these three commands:
1) fixmbr (wait til it finishes)
2) fixboot (wait...)
3) CHKDSK (this will take longer than the previous two.
Your laptop may now boot normally. I think your laptop doesn't have an internal CD-ROM so you may use an external USB CD.

Unable to enter setup in acer aspire 5315


You do not say what OS you are running. You could try F12 at bootup to see if you can get to the boot manager that way.

Acer aspire one model gz5 showed hibernate on screen, low battery. turned off. recharged battery, now there is a dark screen, manual was no help


To start the computer in safe mode 1.
You should print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut your computer down in step 2.
2.
Click Start and then click Shut Down.
3.
In the drop-down list of the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
4.
As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8.
On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when the boot menu appears.
5.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the appropriate safe mode option, and then press ENTER.
6.
If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.

Acer Aspire One loops on start up screen. All it does is show the acer logo, then shows the ''windows was shut down improperly'' screen with all those options and then goes to the windows xp start up...


Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.

Acer aspire one not booting


your laptop has been turned off without shutting down. all your laptops registries are probably messed up. the easiest way to do is to reformat your computer or restore it to factory settings. unless you have some important files that you cant afford to lose.

Acer aspire wont boot after improper shut down


It appears that you deleted some systems files.
You have been unsuccessful with System repair, then you need to reinstall Windows plus all your device drivers (eg. video, audio,LAN etc.) and your programs. If you don't have these drivers then go to a working computer and download them from the computer's WEB download/support site.
You will most likely lose your data in the process of reinstalling Windows, if you are desparate to recover your data, then remove the hard drive from the computer and connect it to a USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, this computer will see it as an external hard drive, you can then copy your data onto a CD or USB memory stick.
