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!

Does my acer have a warranty

You can use this website to check if your acer is still in warranty. Just put the serial number from the bottom of your laptop into the form on this website.

My computer will not boot up keeps closing down

check how often it shuts down and if it shuts down when you start a particular application then start your computer and go to BIOS and leave it on there ( for example if your comp shuts down every 3 mins in normal mode then leave the comp on for 15 mins in bios to determine if it is a hardware or software issue then check in sfae mode the event log or error reporting if any hardware is causing the issue, update the drivers or try with new user or reinstall OS as last option.

Acer aspire overheating & rstarting.

you can replace the fan if you know how to do so but take it to a qualified technician and they will be able to sort it out for you and it should be that expensive

Acer battery trouble?


Yes, sometimes a faulty battery can cause this issue on some Acer Laptops - have seen it many times. Please replace battery OR test on A/C to make sure. If you get another battery, please test first if problem remains before buying it of cause.

My computer restarts alone ! on/off ?

Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.
Good luck

Aspire 9500 doesn't start - cursor and drive indicator blinks

Generally the bios setting will be set to check the primary Hard disk for the Operating system and then move to the CD/DVD drive . It looks like your system is not finding the hard disk. Thats why its moving on the CD drive and trying to read it.

Possible issues :

1) Hard Drive crash
Solution : Nothing much. You need to replace the hard drive and reinstall the OS.
2) Hard Drive connection issue.
Solution : Open the chasi and try to figure out if the hard disc is properly connected.
3) Corrupted OS or boot file
Solution : Try to repair the OS use the OS cd and run the repair option.
4) Bios setting to treat CD drive as the primary media.
Solution : Use the F10 option in the Bios to change the primary Media.

Rate the Solution accordingly...

Acer Aspire 9300 Vista Lock Up Issues

Sounds like a over heating issue, try using caned air to blow and dust out of your fan area, then make sure when the system has ran for a while the fan does turn on (laptops to save on power don't run the fan constent only when the temp rises enough to need it. also make sure your not leaving the laptop run on blankets or pillows as they will block air flow through vents on the bottom or side of the laptop. Hard surface is best. if all else fails you can get a cooler pad to use with the laptop.

If you have any further questions please reply before marking not helpful. thanks
