Re: Screen unresponsive ! HELP NEEDED

Probly need to clean out the fan/heatsink at the very least. If it's making a noise, might think about that extended warranty they offered...
Good luck

My dad fixed this problem by changing the background on his computer. I know this sounds like a strange fix, but apparently certain backgrounds just affect the load time and I think that's what this "2 min" icon was representing. His icon has now disappeared.

Unless you have already done so, check the power saver options in the control panel. You may have to tweek the timings to make sure power save options are not cutting in too early.

I don't know which windows operating system you are using but generally you will find the details in the Control Panel.

Blank screen on laptop power still on base unit tried F8 tapping during start up

I think your computer's hard drive crashed because if it's not loading up the startup screen there has got to be a problem with the BIOS. If the keys are unresponsive, your motherboard is probably shot.

Acer Aspire One D250-1042 shows desktop wallpaper but won't load

Start by logging on as the Administrator so you can check the Task Manager and find out what Application or Process is monopolizing the system.

If the system is still unresponsive boot into Safe Mode. (Press F8 before the Windows startup screen appears.) If everything is fine in Safe Mode type MSCONFIG at the Command Prompt and start disabling features until you find the culprit.

Last resort, buy or borrow an external USB CD/DVD drive and use it to reinstall Windows.

Important: Reinstalling will ERASE the hard drive.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Assistance needed (black screen on laptop)

Your problem could be a freeze up when hibernating.
If you battery is low charge it up.
Then disconnect the supply and remove the battery for say 1 min.
Then replace the battery and reboot.
This should fix your problem, if not go back to supplier.
Note holding down the start button for 5secs will switch of your laptop.

One of your programs (or drivers) that is set to run at startup is corrupted. Stop them from loading one by one until the problem is fixed and uninstall (or update) the culprit.

It keeps freezing.

Sounds like your is overheating. You might want to make sure your CPU fan is spinning. Another good thing you can do is download a little program called speedfan
this will tell you the internal temp of your processor and hard drives and if your fans are running. If the fans are running and the cpu is staying cool, I would then do a full bios test on the hard drive itself as well as a chkdsk /x through a command prompt on the hard drive (from safe mode). Let me know if these don't resolve the issue.
