I have an Aspire 6920; when I start it up it loads windows and goes to the welcome screen. From here it will randomly go to a black screen and eventually beep at me. This is happening every time, but not always at the same time each time.

Re: Black screen shortly after logging into Windows
It sounds like you may be having an overheating issue with the CPU, or you may have a bad stick of memory,for the overheating you can try to alleviate it by elevating the back of the laptop, and/or use a laptop pad with fans, the memory, you can run memory diagnostics, goto control panel, administrative tools, and memory diagnostics, scan the RAM and check the results/log for errors, and replace the stick or sticks of RAM if more than one shows errors. Those are the two most likely culprits given your description. I hope this solves your problem, if so please give a fixya rating, every one of them helps.Thanks for the question

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.
other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time
repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of
opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts
Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:
“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”
If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.
If you see this: “Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”
it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you
now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on
your screen after a short pause..
In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.
The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs. This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine. If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.
When you boot up start pressing F8 and you should get a Windows startup page with more options. If you do select Safe Mode
When windows has loaded, goto MSConfig and select Diagnostic Startup. Ok and reboot
See if windows boots normally.
By going into the Task manager, type windows explorer in the new tab. That should bring up your desktop icons, The reason for this could be that you have a lot of applications trying to load all at once and it can cause some lock up in the system.
A full system repair should be your last choice.
1.- Start up your computer and before windows start hit F8 2.- You will see a black screen with many options 3.- Select "Safe Mode" 4.- After Windows loaded up, uninstall the last programs. 5.- Restart in normal mode
The error: Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt; WINDOWS\SYSEM32\config\system
You can attempt to repair this file by loading the Win CD into your cdrom drive. Start the PC & press the F5 key every 2 seconds & windows boot menue will load.
Choose the cdrom drive that has the Windows CD in.
Select "r" at the first screen to start repair.
Once back in windows run a full system virus scan.
