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.

My acer aspire 3002lci pc notebook comes on with the acer logo and then goes black. if i hit f2 when the logo comes on, i have lots of options, what can i try?

If this is the first time you have seen this, it maybe because of an incomplete Windows update, when you see the Acer logo, start tapping F8, you will see a black screen with multiple options in white text. The first thing to try is arrow down and select "Last Good Configuration", try to boot the machine up with this setting. If it does great, if it doesn't, try to boot the machine in "Safe Mode with Networking". If safe mode boots up, then you can run virus and malware scans, or use system restore to run the computer back a few days before you had the problem.

To use system restore, click the start button on the task bar > choose programs > accessories > system tools > system restore.
Open system restore and a list of restore points will be visible, choose a restore point back a day or two before the problem. hit ok to the prompts, the computer will reboot and system restore will start, when it is finished it will tell you if the restore was successful. It will not delete any personal files or anything like that.

Aspire 5520-5912 does not start ,shows only blue screen

Try to get into safe mode by pressing F8 when you first turn onto your computer. Choose safe mode. If you can get into safe mode. Try doing a system restore back to the last date the computer was last working properly.

If you can't get into safe mode then you'll need to wipe out your hard drive and get your system back to factory defaults. You probably have corrupt system files that are causing these problems.
