Power on the system, press and hold the "control" key and hold it until the Windows startup screen appears. Select "Safe Mode" from the menu.
Hope this is what you were looking for.

Acer aspire t135 pc desktop locks at splash screen

These are the steps that you need to take, and the instructions on how to do it:
1. Reboot into Safemode
2. Run a virus and spyware scanner
3. Defrag
4. Scandisk
5. Registry error repairing
6.Reboot into regular mode windows

Here is how to do it:
Reboot yor machine while holding the F8 key right as it boots back up. A menu will apear. Choose -->"start windows in safe mode with networking".
Windows will start in safe mode. Run an AVG virus scan, then run Defrag by exploring your computer, right click on C: drive, click PROPERTIES, then the TOOLS tab, click the "check now" button, and only checkmark the top box 'fix file system errors', then click ok, the computer will then tell you it will scan upon next reboot., Now click the DEFRAG NOW button. the choose defrag. After Defrag runs for about an hour and it is finished, restart the system. If is still won't run normally, go back into Safemode buy pressing F8 on reboot, then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot again. If it still won't run right, you may want to reinstall Windows and see if that works. If reinstalling windows doesn't fix it, it is usually a hardware problem.
Good luck.

My acer veriton desktop system hang many times.give me solution.

At what point does the system hang? Does it hang before going into windows - at the Windows Flash Screen? If so:

1. Restart the computer,
2. Press F5 or F10 (right about 2-3 seconds after the computer restarts and does the POST check) to get into SafeMode.
3. Once in SAFEMODE, Go into Control-Panel: System: Device Manager.
4. Go to Display Adapters and remove any extra drivers in there but BE PREPARED to reinstall the video drivers after.

If it is a video problem and u removed the video driver and Windows does not have the driver, you will default to a basic driver that's very limited. If u get into windows with this basic driver u have solved the problem.

Then reinstall the original video drivers for ur card.


After that:
1. Do a Disk Cleanup
2. Run A Virus Scan

Help me please

You need to get some hard drive cleaner like Drive Scrubber. Wipe out your hard drive and then reload your operating system. That will take care of all the viruses..

Pls rate this solution.

its a little problem without the windows disk but try this steps.

Turn on the computer-while booting press the F8 key until you have an option to choose safemode.
then choose safemode, once on the safemode, if you have install somoething on your computer, try to uninstall it, if not then on the safemode try to back up your files.Scan for viruses and spyware.

If this may not work then I suggest you get a windows setup disk.

Do you have full functionality in safemode? If so, get your hands on an anti-virus and scan your system. You might also be able to use an online virus scan, but I'd avoid the internet if you know you have a virus.

If this won't work, you can try using a linux live CD to scan for viruses... although, I wouldn't recommend that unless you have Linux or Unix experience.

If none of these solutions work, most likely, you will end up taking it to a computer repair shop.
