My daughters acer 5742 laptop which is a 2 year old refurb only works in safe mode. It first started when user log on failed and she restored it to factory settings. It comes on in normal mode but freezes within minutes.It has never been great and gets very hot and shuts its self down. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

The only advice I could give would be to get it stripped down and cleaned out, that could help with the heat problem.
If you look in the device manager check if you have any problems showing (exclamation marks or crosses). Try to update the display driver and any others if they need it.

SOURCE: SONY VAIO notebook freezes on xp splash screen every 2-4 mos.

first, ensure your system restore is turned on and make a restore point right now!...assuming you have run a thorough disk check and de-frag. then, trust the system restore. I have used it with success 100% of the 20 or so times I have used it. Next, start using the "Hibernate" power down mode. I have found this to work wonders with third-party driver problems. It seems that once a good startup happens, then freeze it (and continue to get a good startup) with hibernate from then on. Last, check about every month for the quantity of restore points that have taken place automatically by Windows. Sometimes, depending on the size of the hard drive, too many points can begin to encroach on your free space that you want for virtual memory or data. So for example, I see 15 restore points in the last month, I will dlete them all by cancelling system restore. Then I use "clean disk" scandisk and defrag. Then I turn restore back on.

SOURCE: Can't restore factory intallations and settings: Vaio VGN-FE880E

Are you doing DESTRUCTIVE recoveries or are you doing NONDESTRUCTIVE recoveries? Try another hard drive in the machine and recover to that. Nondestructive recoveries replace the operating system without destroying the personal data. Its possible the original problem is propagating over to the recovered systems. Do a destructive recovery. Understand any data not backed up will be destroyed. Possible the original problem was a trojan virus.

SOURCE: Set my Toshiba Satellite Laptop PSA60U-01W015 to it Factory Sett?

some of these systems have the factory restore option on post boot before the OS kicks in. From a cold boot look for the hit DEL or Fx key and do that - you may have to boot a few times to catch it, and possibly hold the defined key down in anticipation of the option to appear on what looks like a DOS screen. You may need the recovery discs that came wit the system if the image is not in a hidden partition of your drive. Good luck.

Logging on


This is about all you can do.

  1. Reboot into Safe Mode and created another User Account with Administration privileges.
  2. when you get into Windows using the newly created account.
  3. Delete the user Account that was having the error.
  4. Create a new account for your child.

Xp logs on then logs off immediately on acer 5100


I'd suggest booting into Safe Mode (press F8 after the POST information is finished on bootup) and then you should see an option for Administrator. If you can sign in successfully there, go to Control Panel and create a new account under User Accounts. Boot normally after that and see if you can sign in the new account.

Two questions: 1) is this XP or Vista? and 2) did you recently make any significant changes to the software (namely try to change the Certificate of Authenticity)? If what I suggested works, I'd say boot into Safe Mode again and then run System Restore for Windows. Set the system back to about a week ago and try logging in normally.

Safe mode


Have you tried doing a system restore in safe mode? Click on Start-->Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools-->System Restore. Pick a date prior to you installing whatever screwed up your computer.
