This is generally a hardware issue - if the computer is under warranty get it fixed through Acer. If not you may need professional help. You don't mention how old the laptop is but if it is older than a year or two and you live in a dusty environment it could be overheating. If the fan is not running or always running on super-high then it is probably overheating.

Another thing to try is using a boot CD (any boot CD will work) and see if the computer still shuts down after that 30 seconds. If yes, definitely hardware. If not, possible that it's a windows issue.

Hope that helps!

SOURCE: 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 will boot up then i shut it down if i try to switch this back on straight away the acer screen appears but then goes blank and does not load


I am quite sure the operating system is corrupted. Just install fresh operating system.

But still you mention, that it is booting up but it is just blank screen or shut down.

Try to press F8 key once when start up boot to go to ADVANCE BOOTING OPTION. If you are lucky, it will load this option and choose LAST KNOW GOOD CONFIGURATION. or if you have the Operatins system installer CD, put inside the CDROM and repair the operating system.


Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

My Laptop will not start up goes to a blank screen.


Try running Last Known Good Configuration which should fix your problem.

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
Step 6: your PC will boot to the windows. I

Sounds like the HAL.DLL problem that I have with my Aspire One.
Try booting off a genuine Windows XP disc and choosing the 'recovery console' option. At the command line, type 'CHKDSK C:' and press Enter. If you're lucky, that will do the trick.

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.

My acer aspire shuts down before it loads the windows OS... pls help


Try rebooting, press F8 key repetedly until the boot menu is shown. Try booting into safe mode.

If you can get into safe mode, hit start -> run and type "msconfig"

Choose the option to NOT load the startup items upon boot and restart. This will let you boot if there was a program that was starting automatically and intefering with boot.
