Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Frozen...brr I came home one night to turn my computer on and it just froze at the white Acer screen with the Setup and Boot Menu options, but the keyboard doesn't seem to work? Does that make any sense? If so any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Computers should be cleaned and the CMOS battery replaced yearly... open the CPU case and you'll see a Cell button, the battery, it might be dead already... replace it with the same type and try turning it ON...

How do I get into safemode on my acer aspire desktop

1 Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time. 2 During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup." 3 Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears. If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2. 4 Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard. 5 Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection. The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

Windows is not loading have black screen with white cursor then goes to acer and fast out again to white cursor

Hello, doing a "last known good configuration" Works most of the time. Here is how to do it:

1. Make sure your computer is powered down.

2. Turn your computer on and immediately start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly until you see a black screen with white writing that gives you a list of boot options.

3. Use the down arrow on your keyboard to select the Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced) option.

4. Press Enter on your keyboard and cross your fingers.

Good Luck!

Dell desktop dimension E310. Screen locked up, had to turn off. Computer will not boot up beyond setup and boot menu.

The screen locked up because something - most likely a virus - has deleted a critical file and the entire pc just froze. Now the entire Windows is corrupted so the pc can't start and the only way to fix that is to reinstall. And next time use a better antivirus.

Wont turn on

He is getting the screen with del, enter , f12 so the power supply is fine it could be his bios battery that needs to be reseeated and factory default loaded. If you left it on for a while it could be in a state of sleep/hibernation and if you should it down manually you could have stopped it from resuming and thats why it wont boot now and by reseating the bios battery for a couple minutes could remove the resume from the computers memory and might fix your problem. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution. Please Help rate me if I helped you out or not I am new but a very good tech.

Please help me with this Frozen PC...

If you don't mind losing all of your data, get a windows XP install disc, boot from it, and see if you can install a new copy of the operating system. If this is not an ooptuion, google "Bart PE" download this program, run it and let it burn to a CD. Next boot from said CD, and run the command prompt. now type in "CHKDSK C:/r" and let this run. Once it finishes, take the disk out and reboot. THis should fix the problem, best of luck dude ;)

Can not Boot from OnBoard SATA Hard keeping looping...

Turn on (or restart) your computer.
When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F12>.
The Boot Device Menu appears, listing all available boot devices. Each device has a number next to it.
At the bottom of the menu, enter the number of the device that is to be used for the current boot only.

If this works and you want to change the setting permanently do the following:
Turn on (or restart) your computer.
When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F2>.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the Boot Sequence menu option and press <Enter> to access the menu.
NOTE: Write down your current boot sequence in case you want to restore it.
Press the up- and down-arrow keys to move through the list of devices.
Press the spacebar to enable or disable a device (enabled devices have a checkmark).
Press plus (+) or minus (–) to move a selected device up or down the list.
