Whats is the operating system you have? Make sure there is no CD/DVD in the drive. If its Windows XP you can boot to recovery console and try to fix the boot partition

You may try to restore your PC back to defaults. The process of restoring PC to defaults is simple, just hold the [alt] key and press the F10 key right when you turn the PC on to start the recovery program. Check out all the new software that you have installed on your computer, if the software are not genuine and authenticated, remove them, because they may be the cause of problem. Another way is, get in the BIOS and turn of the option of Autostart at system failure.

HOW to tget to bios acer aspire AST180-ED400A


Immediately after pressing the power up button, start repeatedly pressing F2 while the Acer logo is displaying. The Bios setup screen should appear. If you press F2 too soon, the keyboard may not have initialized yet. If you press it too late, Windows will proceed to launch. Press it once, wait a second, press, it again, wait another second, and repeat this while the Acer logo is displaying until you see the bios setup screen.

This is standard approach with most Acers. That said, some laptops may defer to either Ff being the key to press or CTRL+ALT+EXC. Such would be entered as the above mentioned F2. Your Aspire appears to be a desktop and I suspect F2 will suffice.

My Acer D250 netbook starts show a white screen the reboots it self, sometimes it not only shows white screen but also gray or it run colourful lines then it restart. When it restart it start working fine...


Suggest using Acer eRecovery Management to attempt problem resolution as follows...
1. begin with the D250 powered off ...
2. if present, remove any external monitor (unplug its VGA connector from D250 left side)
3. power on and immediately press F2 to enter the BIOS / setup utility
4. using the right cursor key, cursor over to the Main tab of the InsydeH20 Setup Utility
5. if D2D Recovery is not enabled, cursor down to it, press Enter key and enable in pop-up
6. save any changes by pressing F10 to save and exit, otherwise press Esc to just exit
7. press Alt and F10 together while the Acer logo is showing to get entry into eRecovery.
8. eRecovery entry is indicated by message at bottom of screen "Windows is loading files...".
9. if not successful, power off, wait a minute then power on again and immediately
10. press Alt and F10 at the same time - do this several times while Acer logo showing.
11. once in Acer eRecovery Management (V7.0.10) screen, just leave it there........
12. if after a day or so, the screen has not changed, the problem is likely NOT hardware.
13. on the other hand, if your screen problem occurs after awhile, then it is hardware.
14. if it is not hardware, then your Operating System is likely corrupt or has a virus.
15. If it is not a hardware problem, you can completely restore system to factory defaults.
16. board level hardware repairs best done by sending D250 to Acer's authorized shops.

Screen just stays blue when powered up.


press and hold F2 key while turn power on to see can run bios setup or not.
if bios setup showed means your operation system on your harddrive is missing.
good luck.

OK The only thing I can access is on the screen that first comes up and that's the acer screen. At the bottom left has press F2 enter setup. I press F2. Information, Main, Security, Boot, and Exit appear....


Yep, sounds like a crashed / crashing hard drive. Why can't you use the cd / dvd drive? Does it not work? You're gonna need some kind of boot up cd to start troubleshooting that laptop. XP is usually my choice.

Acer 3003lci will not boot up.


sounds like locking up on boot, hence why nothing happens when you hit F2, try tapping F2 as soon as you push power button, if still hanging, you may need to take it to get looked at, could be a number of things causing it to lock up
