Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.
You need to find out why its shutting down. Try starting in safe mode. When pc starts keep pressing F8 and wait for list to come then select safe mode. Then scan your pc with spybot search and destroy...Hope this helps...
It could be a problem with the harddrive and memories ,if you enter the DELL bios setup page when the computer starts up does it have an option to test the hard drive if so test it. Also if you have two memory sticks then try with only one and vice versa.
Try booting with another boot CD like the ultimate boot CD it has some hard drive testing tools too.
Hi, You should be able to restore the system from the recovery partition on that model laptop. Shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power
button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for
XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A
symantec recovery application (PC Restore) window will start up. just
follow the instructions on the window.
this happens when you have errors with the hard drive not responding to the new boot or drivers not responding. is this a clean install or a restore? if you are not using the original xp disk the machine came with you may get these errors. the blue screen usually has a message in it. let me know what it says if you get a second.
When turning on the computer keep pressing F8
Select boot into safe mode
Then in safe mode click start then run then type in MSCONFIG
Click on Launch System restore.
Restore your computer to the day beforeyour problem started.
There could be an issue with the user accounts logins. This could be corruption in the OS when you installed it or a clashing driver . I would recommend you reinstall the Operating System with the Disks and before you start installing the drivers try to shut down and see if it shuts down properly . If it does then you know the Operating system and hardware is all fine and can continue installing one driver at a time and shutdown and restarting, continue doing this until you see which driver is causing a confict with your system. I have had a problem similar to this but it was some windows updates pack that I had done one time and had to reinstall windows too and do one by one. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.
