Re: Acer aspire

Make sure you have it plugged into the AC adapter and then hold the power button down for 5 seconds. This will force the computer off.

After a few seconds press the power button again and you'll be set

I have an Acer Aspire 5733z. When I turn it on or return from hybernation, it shuts down and automatically attempts to reboot. Sometimes it only takes a few tries, other times it has taken up to 30...

Sounds like a problem with your Windows installation and you should re-install or reset to factory defaults after backing up your data.

Sounds like the hibernation and hard drive setting need looking at under the power controls, also check that a password is not required in returning from hibernation.

Acer aspire will wake up when lid is opened

That is because it is set to hybernate, not just go into standby. Go to battery options and check/reset the function.

Unplug the computer, hold the power button down until the laptop shuts down, then remove the battery. Plug in the charger, and try powering up. If all is okay, shut it back down, unplug it, and reinstall the battery. Then, plug it in and let it fully charge. Restart it, plugged in and with the battery installed. Good luck.

My acer aspire 5050 dosent start up after you shut it down and boot it up? Help me!!!

Unplug the power supply, remove the battery then press the power button 10x or more holding each press for about 10secs. Insert the battery, plug the power supply and turn it on. If it doesn't, repeat the steps. This should remove the static electricity stuck in the mainboard.

If it turns-on, set your laptop to hybernate when you close the lid so you don't need to shutdown it anymore. If it runs out of power while in hybernation, it should start again.

Toshiba Satellite A55-S306 doesn't come out of hybernation

Turn the PC on, when it is booting up, keep hitting "F8" until windows boot options come up, choose "Safe Mode" and then once it boots into safe mode fully, go to the start menu and choose shut down. After it shuts down, turn it back on and it should go back into normal mode. From now on, don't use Hibernate, its buggy and has been since XP.
