SOURCE: acer aspire one is not starting up. It goes back to OS start up

there are two possibilities i can think of, one, a virus, two, a bad driver file. what you can do, is run it in safe mode, if it goes to the log in screen, you could log in, and when a dialogue box appears to run in safe mode, click yes. then, go to the start menu, then locate my computer, right click on my computer, and click on manage. A window will pop up that says computer management on the top. In the middle, click on system tools, then device manager, and it will show a list of all of the devices that are installed. Lots of times, your display driver is updated and causes your computer to be unstable, there fore, giving you the bluescreen error, which causes your computer to constantly restart. (make sure all recently installed devices are unplugged before doing this. new devices may also cause this error). look for any devices with an exclamation point, right click, and uninstall them, then restart the computer to see if it solves your problem. if not, then it might be a virus that activates with internet acces, if so, run your computer in safe mode, and run a virus scan and hope that it finds the virus. If that doesn't work, then what i recommend is try to back up your work in a flash drive or disk and running the backup disc that comes with your computer. to run that, sometimes your computer comes with a disc, run that disc and follow the instructions. if not, then sometimes it comes preinstalled, and have to press f10 on the first boot screen. if none of those options are available, then call the manufacturer and ask for the restore disc for your computer model. Good luck

SOURCE: acer aspire one stuck on windows safe mode restart

If you have the option of going to a command prompt (on the choose how to start "text" screen), do it, and type at the C:> fdisk /mbr then press the ENTER key. This may fix things. Also, try removing the battery when the computer is off, wait about a minute, then replace it and start computer. This actually helps sometimes.

SOURCE: HEy guys, My acer aspire one was working fien this

I would try to repair windows. Insert a disk w/ Windows OS on it and you should see a prompt to press enter to boot from CD, follow the on screen instructions to repair or reinstall windows. If the repair does not work, try reinstall. One of the options will reinstall w/o affecting your personal files & programs. Just read each sdreen carefully as you proceed.
I have had some success with this. In one case though it was a failed hard drive causing similar symtoms.

I let the HP asst. Install a bios update and the install is stuck at 40%. What can I do to get out of the update?


Turn on the computer and begin hitting the "F8" key when you see the BIOS screen.

This will take you to the Safe Mode menu.


Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode," then hit "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will boot your computer in Safe Mode, a minimalist manner of operating Windows that runs only essential Windows files.


If using Windows XP in Safe Mode, click the "Start" button and then click "Run." In the box that pops up, type "msconfig" and hit "Enter."


If using Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen, type "msconfig" in the search field and then hit "Enter."

This will open the System Configuration Utility.


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Services" tab, check the box that reads, "Hide All Microsoft Services," click "Disable All" and then click "Apply."


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and then click "Apply." Next, click the "Close" box.

A box will pop up that prompts you to restart your computer.

Select "Restart" and let the computer restart itself, allowing it to boot to Windows normally.


If the computer still stalls when trying to boot to Windows, restart the computer and boot to Safe Mode again.

Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode, deleting any files that are flagged as viruses, spyware or malware. Restart the computer and boot to Windows normally


hope this helps

I can not get the cruiser to appear when i open the program on my Acer desktop computer. How can I get the cruiser to appear


Is the cursor the only thing not showing up on the Acer Desktop? Are the icons there?

If only the cursor is missing it sounds like you have an infection.

Try booting up in safe mode to see if the cursor appears. Turn off the computer then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Safe mode will look different to you. The screen will be darker and the icons bigger, but this is normal. Once the desktop appears see if you are still having the problem.

If the problem still exists, turn it off again, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see Safe Mode. Scroll down and select SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. Safe Mode With Networking will provide you with internet connectivity. Open your internet browser and download and install Malwarebytes then run a QUICK SCAN.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

My Acer Aspire won't boot up past the Window's Loading bar


Log in to safe mode by pressing F8 during startup, if you see windows loading you have missed your window to push the F8 key. When the options menu comes up choose safe mode.
While in safe mode if it loads, click Start > Computer (My Computer) > right click on your ‘C’ drive and click properties > click the ‘tools’ tab > click the ‘Check Now’ button under ‘Error-checking’ > make sure the options ‘Automatically fix…’; and ‘Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors’ is checked. A dialogue box will come up stating “windows cannot check the disk”, just click the ‘Schedule disk check’ button and restart your computer. When the computer starts up a check disk will start, let it run. you might want to go do something as the check disk may take up to and sometimes longer than an hour.
Let me know if that helped, and please rate me after, thank you.

Black screen with cursor won't go any further


Start the Acer in Safe Mode. Let it settle on the desktop, so that it is ready to be used. Then check the screen's settings, using right-click on a blank spot on the desktop. See if you can get it out of the limited video mode in which it seems to be now.
Or simply shut it down again, and restart back into normal mode.
Frequently, this is all it takes to reset the video.

Good luck,
