Windows XP
1)Try the following steps, hard boot the notebook, before the post bios completes press F8 on the keyboard, you will see the boot options, choose last known good configuration, or Safe Mode with Network support.

2) If number 1 did not work then insert the windows installation disc, boot up the notebook and enter the bios either by pressing F2 or F10 or Delete, change the boot sequence to CD-ROM as your primary boot device. Remember to change this back when you have solved the problem. now the notebook will display the following: press any key to boot from CD-ROM, Press any key, now let the setup progress till you see the setup console, continue with a standard installation till you see the text "Press R for the Recovery console" now you will see a text e.g. c:\windows (1) now press 1 on the keyboard this is your root directory. now type the following and fixboot (Enter) your answer will be (Y) at all the prompts. then you type fixmbr (Enter) follow the prompts with (Y)
After it has completed the operations type Exit to exit the Root Directory. Reboot your notebook.

If this did not help please specify any other questions, and or any error messages, beeps.

Are you getting the Acer logo on start up? If so you might have a software issue on the hard drive, or the hard drive itself is defective. I suggest using your recovery disc to re-install windows and drivers providing you have them.

your computer your laptop will just shut itself down and get a black screen unexpectedly, which is due to: power overload in the AC adapter, overheated processor / clogged fan, overheated battery, pushing the power button, Windows telling it to, the BIOS telling it to, loose wires (especially the power cord), or intermittent short circuits. The most common problem is cooling. the battery should be removed from the laptop and allowed to cool to room temperature before attempting to use again.

Hello scooby_chick

First off, nice nickname you got there.:)

Anyway, there's a chance that the flex, the cable that connects your screen & the laptop itself may be defective.

I had a similar thing happen to my pre-historic Sharp laptop.

Try calling Acer or where you bought that laptop to see how you can go about in replacing the flex cables.

Hope that helps & best of luck!

Blue Screen


please remove battery and ac-power for a couple of minutes and then try to reboot the computer.

if it still doesnt work, shut it down, remove battery and ac.
remove ram
connect ac-power
try to boot without ram
remove ac power
insert ram
insert battery
connect ac and try to boot again.



when the blue screen appear, please write down the top line that looks something similar to this:

IRQL_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL_ETC_ETC

and the line close to the bottom that says

STOP: 0x000021 (0x000+++alot of not needed numbers)


when you have done that please come back to me.
