First of all are you running on battery or ac ? It sounds like you might have a bad charger and your battery is low, so your laptop goes into screen off to conserve battery, and then hibernates. Let me know if this resolves your problem or not.

    ok you say your battery is fine and fully charged. There is a tiny button switch on your laptop which enguages when you close it.Make a resistance check on this switch, it should read 0,if not this is your problem.

Windows won't start

Your system is stuck in what is called a reboot loop. This could be caused by a virus infection, a corrupt Windows file, or even a virus. The easiest way to do this if you are unfamiliar is to take it to a local computer shop for a diagnostic. If your system has a restore partition, you could try to restore the system to the original factory condition, however, you will lose all data when performing this operation

Screen goes blank every 30 second, have to hit the

go to control panel > power options. Turn off hibernate and sleep mode, change all settings to never sleep and change the setting for "when closing the lid" to "do nothing" sleep mode, hibernation can destroy the registry on these laptops, you are better off turning that garbage off and just letting it run.

Acer Extensa 5210 laptop wont boot

Try the following:
1) Remove power cord, battery and hold the power switch down for at least 30 seconds.
2) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s).

If those don't do it, get back to me for more ideas.

Right click anywhere on the desktop, open the screen saver tab, click on the power button at the bottom. You'll see a box that reads monitor, set this to never. That should take care of the screen shutting down. As far as the orange light, I'm guessing that's the battery light, and it's time for a new battery.(It should be green and flashes orange when the battery no longer works properly)

Laptop starts up goes from acer screen to black screen with options safe mode etc then goes on to windows screen like its going to boot up then goes off and restarts from the beginning again just keeps...

Your PC is looping back to the windows splash screen, you will never get it to bootup like it is supposed to. Your OS is corrupt, you need to reinstall your OS, there is a way to do so provided you have the disks to reinstall the OS. Now if you have data or files you need, when reinstalling you can choose to reinstall the OS keeping all existing data files intact, you must make certain to read closely when you get to this point!
