Acer aspire 5050 keeps looping the acer screen and shuts down

When powered on it shows the acer screen where you can enter the setup screen then shuts off and restarts over and over until you shut it off. I ordered the recovery and system disc, but when i put in the system disc it reads it for a while then askes for disc 2 or recovery cd then after putting it in it asks for it again and wont go any farther, I had my hard drive checked and its ok, can you help. Thanks

If the hard drive tested out ok (?) then I would burn a copy of memtest (free just google it) boot from it and test the memory. I would suggest though that the issue is the hard drive or possibly motherboard

My aser aspire say the oprating system not found but the hard disk has the oprating system and ot works properly what can i do to fix this and how can i enter in bios mode


Shut down your Acer Aspire if it is running. Once the computer is off, press the power button to start it. Press "F2" immediately while your computer is booting up and displaying the "Acer" logo. Keep pressing "F2" until the BIOS Setup screen appears.

Unable to enter setup in acer aspire 5315


You do not say what OS you are running. You could try F12 at bootup to see if you can get to the boot manager that way.

Acer Aspire One loops on start up screen. All it does is show the acer logo, then shows the ''windows was shut down improperly'' screen with all those options and then goes to the windows xp start up...


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.

Black screen.


A few questions up ahead please:
a. Is the power button lighting up when you press it or power on your laptop?

b. Is the battery fully charged?

c. is the power cable/charger still good when you connect to mains supply?

**If you answered YES to all the above...

Your laptop screen may be bad and as such must be replaced.

Otherwise, The windows operating system may have CRASHED.

If this is so, then you can try out this system recovery tips as the last resource:

1. try remove the hard drive which you can access by opening the back cover as shown in the owner's manual.

2. next, connect this through an external usb casing to another system and backup all files on the hard drive.

3. if you don't have an acer recovery cd(s) for your laptop, try get someone who has and can help you burn the software for your model and make.

4. next, format the hard drive before you reinstall it back into your laptop.

5. power on your laptop and continously press F8 to enter the bios setup.

6. Select bootup sequence and select boot from cd drive.

7. first reinstall a lower version windows os by inserting a bootable system software.

8. after installation, keep the cd rom drive open and shut down your laptop.

9. insert the acer system recovery cd into the cd rom drive and close shut.

10. Restart your laptop then, Follow the instructions and prompts.

Your laptop will be restored to the way it was originally from the manufacturer.
