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.

When I turn on power it says windows did not start menu, then it will show windows xp starting, then it goes to a screen that says one of the disks needs to be checked. After it's finished checking the...

After the disk-check has finished, your computer *SHOULD* restart "normally", and should *NOT* re-issue the "need to check" message.

If it does repeat, you could have a "dying" disk-drive.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, to backup your files, replace the disk-drive, re-install Windows, and reload your files from that backup.

Hello, I have had my Acer Aspire One netbook since January and it worked fine until now. It tries to boot but then I get this screen: > Checking file system on C: The type of file system is FAT32. One...

First of all, boot from a windows cd and proceed forward until you reach the format options, and check out if there's any problem with the c: drive or not. Sometimes this happens when the drive is corrupted. If it's ok then run windows repair setup and restore it again. In case this ins't possible, (if you have multiple partition on the system), i would suggest you to install additional windows on another drive/partition, boot from it and check if c: drive is ok or not.
If unfortunately the drive is corrupted, there's no other option for you to boot without formating c: drive, but you can run a quick format and recover the files (if there are important files saved on your system[C; drive]).
I would wish to know after all these.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

Can only start acer pc in safe mode -window consistency check.

Microsoft indicates that this issue can be a hardware failure.
You can try using only 1 memory module if system has 2, or try reseating if it only has one. If system works normally with 1 module, replace the other

Acer L100 comp wont start past the windows loading screen


If I were you I would reformat your PC. In short words reformatting you Delete everything from the pc, the reinstall the OS(Operating System). Once the process is done, your PC is alot faster, and fresh. What happens to most people's PC it gets bogged down, and you go along time without cleaning it it will crash, just like a car.

There are hidden folders within the OS such as the prefetch where files are kept to help you boot problems faster, but the prefetch gets bigger each day, and isn't really needed.

To clean the prefetch you would go to Start>Run>type "prefetch" without quotes, once it opens the folder delete ALL files in it, a shortcut is to click any fil inside the prefetch, and press "ctrl+A" that will select all the files and now simply press Delete, and confirm Yes.

Something else to help maximize your system is to do a "disk clean up" access that by going to start>all programs>accessories>system tools

I hope this helped you maintain a better system in the future, if I were you I would go ahead and do the reformat then use the tips I just gave you to keep your system in shape.

Also another top make sure you keep your system clean of threats,(malware,spyware,adware,etc...) I would recommend Norton or Mcfee, I go with and, another one I like is its up to you which you choose.

Good Luck!

Acer will not open any programs

your pc should check the system files on boot up and will keep asking until you allow it to do so. If it doesn't run through a system check and just stays at 0% then there is a serious fault either with the operating system or your hard drive is failing. You will need to repair windows with your installation disc as if you cannot get into windows you will need to restore your system. I am assuming when you say you cannot open up programmes, you mean you cannot get to your desktop.
