SOURCE: My ASUS X83v laptop wont start up, it keeps rebooting.

Try booting in safe mode...if you are able to get into safe mode without it rebooting then you have a driver problem, Try updating all drivers and see if that works. If you can't even get into safe mode, then it could be either, Bad RAM, Motherboard, Corrupted Hard drive or power supply.

To trouble shoot Ram, if you have more than one piece, take all out except for one and try it, if it works, then try the other piece of RAM in the same slot, then try both in the other slot, this will tell you if it's your RAM or your RAM slot.

Motherboard, not much you can do

Corrupted Hard disk, try booting into safe mode with command Prompt and run chkdsk utility on your drive

Power supply, make sure the battery is charging, if possible try another battery fully charged for the same model, remove battery and plug laptop in, unplug and just use battery..


Hope some of this helps you

SOURCE: acer aspire 5520 won't load up upon reboot

Looks like you've had a bad day with computers! Let's see if we can take some of this on today...

On the first laptop (these ideas may work for both, but I'll address them the way I would my own, and we'll go from there), it looks like there is too much stuff being loaded into memory during system startup. This is not uncommon, particularly in computers which have teenagers as primary users.

I would restart the computer, and after the manufacturer's splash screen and before the Windows splash screen, hit the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring you to a startup menu, which will be a black screen with white writing on it. You will be able to make your choice by moving up and down with the arrow keys on your keyboard. Choose SAFE MODE and hit enter.

If you do not see this screen, then you did not time the hitting of F8 corectly. You'll have to restart and try again.

Once in safe mode, click Start, then RUN. With Run open, type this command MSCONFIG and hit enter.

The next screen that opens is the configuration utility, which allows you to change the things that start with your computer. The last tab on the top should be STARTUP. click this.

Because we are shooting in the dark here, and we are not sure what is stopping the startup process, in the lower right corner of the window is a button that says Disable All. Choose this and click APPLY.

When the mouse comes back, click the next tab, which says SERVICES. Under the first window, you will see a small check box next to a line that says Hide All Microsoft Services. Place a checkmark here.

Again, in the lower right corner, click Disable All. Then click OK. When asked to restart, chose yes. This time the computer should start normally.

Now, this should start your pc, but you still have trouble with no AntiVirus software on your computer. The programs are there, they are just turned off. You'll have to open the program from the program files list, and enable it once again.

I'll comment on the other one after I eat dinner with my family.....

Hello

It would appear that your computer is having an issue with a device driver and that is causing the netbook to continually reboot. You have two options:

1. Boot the computer to Safe Mode and see if you can find the faulty driver and fix it (all of your data is saved)
2. Restore the entire computer to the factory defaults using the recovery disk (all of your data is erased)

For option 1 - use the following to boot the comuter into Safe Mode

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/boot_failsafe.mspx?mfr=true

Choose network boot if possible so you can connect to the Internet with this system. If you cannot connect, you will need to use the below link on another comptuer and download the drivers for your netbook and install them individually.

http://support.acer.com/supportdocs.aspx

For option 2 - plug the optical drive into the USB port, press F2 when turning the netbook on to enter BIOS. Insert the Acer Recovery Media into the drive and go to BOOT and select USB CDROM. Follow the on-screen prompts to re-image your netbook.

Do you mean the touch function isn't working? Try reloading the lenovo drivers.
Do you mean the screen is dark or non functioning?

Incoming Skype Picture Freezes and/or Jumps


You are not the only one. I have a gorup of 6 people, on Vista, XP, with QuickCamPros and other brands and we communicate daily. We are ALL having the same problem as a result of the last Skype update.

It is NOT your system, it's Skype's issue. Do like we do and in the lower right corner of your screen you can report the quality of the call. Keep doing it over and over and maybe they'll do something about it!
