    Your windows has a start up problem with its boot menu. If you have the windows disc, boot up with it and choose the repair option and let windows repair the start up. This is easier if you have Vista.

Hello,
Try something else but start normally.
Start in safe mode (Press F8 right after boot) then reboot.
Start in the last good configuration.

If none works reinstall the system.
Change Boot sequence in BIOS to CD-HDD.
Insert Installation CD in CD-Rom drive
Choose install.
Choose C; partition
Choose Format (do not do a quick format). Any formatting will erase all on the Hard Drive.
Complete installation and reboot.

There is something else you could do before resorting to a reinstallation, and that is to use The Recover Console. You acces it when setup asks wether you want to reinstall, or repair. If you answer Repair you boot into the recovery console.

But before using it you should query Microsoft knowledge base about Recovery Console, and know exactly what should do.

Hope it helps.

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.

Problem with the Acer One 110: System hung-up


Do you have a backup disc i.e. an operating system disc! as it sounds like you may have to reload the complete operating system. If restore cant be accessed then you will undoubtedly will have to do a clean install!

My Acer keeps on checking the file system on C: for consistency--after it is finished I get the screen to start windows normally and it will start the check all over again


have you try to check volume errors ?
From My Computer, right click the Drive (c:) then Properties, click Tools tab and then click Check Now, shut it down and restart.
Or you can even click Defragmentation, but it will take a long time.
Be sure to back up your impotant files before do Defragmentation, just in case.

I cannot logon to my PC


Start your PC in safe mode, to do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as soon as you turn the power on. This will then bring up an "options" screen listing boot in safe mode, safe mode with network support etc. Just use safe mode. If it goes directly to windows instead - shut it off and try again til u get the safe mode screen. The arrow keys control the selection to choose.When it starts in safe mode a black screen will usually appear with a bunch of writing, this is normal, after that it may "hang" for as long as 5 minutes, before coming up with a login screen. Sometimes hitting enter or escape will bring up the login screen faster. When you have a login screen, login and disable the updates using the software control options for the software that is trying to update. You might also go to control panel, administrator options, then services and disable automatic updates temporarily. When your pc starts in safe mode - it starts with minimal drivers and does not run updates- this allows you to change settings. You can then reboot normally and it should start properly without updating before starting.
