Question about Acer Aspire T160 (AST160UA3400) PC Desktop
I have an Acer Aspire AST690-UD214A.
The desktop will not boot up. It powers up and sounds okay. Sometimes when I start it up the screen just shows the acer logo with ''Del: Enter Setup F12: Boot Menu'' at the bottom left side of the screen. It just stays like that. Other times when I start it up it brings up the ''Windows Error Recovery'' option screen first and then displays a blue screen with ''A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. . . . '' The error shown is not always the same. Other times the screen goes black after the ''Windows Error Recovery'' screen.
Is there anything that can be done or should I be shopping for a new computer?
If you are able to get windows up you can restore it in a earlier time when it was working perfectly, this is if you have the 'restore point' on your pc. Other option if to use 'Last know good configuration'
The Last Known Good Configuration feature is a recovery option that you can use to start your computer by using the most recent settings that worked. The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores registry information and driver settings that were in effect the last time the computer started successfully.
To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:

It sounds like your hard drive is or is going bad. What I would do is,if you have your computer start up disks, re-install it to your computer. You should do a back up to save your files before installing. (it'll allow you to have this option done before you install) Hope this helps any.
