Re: Acer shuts off when its turned on it loads sometimes...

Are you talking about the boot screen that shows WinXp forst and either reboots or shuts.......this is important now can you explain because if itis the boot screen then its only a software problem. The last person who had this problem after I gave him the solution was never to be seen again I imagine it worked? he didnt even say thanks.

Acer Aspire One notebook.when turn on,starts to boot goes windows did not start screen,can choose option and windows starts to load then just shuts off.if you do not choose option shuts off after about 20...

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!

Won't load

Something is having a problem loading. Usually these are drivers or the last program installed.

When you boot start pressing F8 as soon as you see something. This is before the windows screen so you have to power on and start pressing F8. Then select Safemode. This will boot up windows without loading any drivers. Once you are in safemode then you can go to control panel and uninstall the last thing you installed. sometimes just booting into safe mode and then shutting down and rebooting normally will clear the error.

Having said that this can also be casued by a virus that has damaged windows files. You can repair your windows setup if you have the windows cd. If you have to use the system restore it may allow you to repair or attempt to but usally will try to wipe out everything and set it back to factory.

My acer aspire 5520 when i press power fan comes up then shut

From your brief description, it seems that your hardware is starting correctly, and then it tries to load Windows. Windows then fails to load fully, and so Windows forces the computer to restart.

So, turn the computer on.
Immediately press F8 (again and again) until a "start-up" menu is displayed. Select "Safe Mode" and see if Windows will start.

If it does, use the "System Restore" application within "System Tools" within "Accessories" to go "back-in-time" to a date/time when your computer *was* working correctly. Restore to that date/time.

Laptop won't shut down normally!

You should go to the BIOS and load the default settings. Also, check your device manager to check if all hardware is installed and functioning properly (no conflicts, etc).
