2 Answers

HEy guys, My acer aspire one was working fien this morning, shut it down then powered it back up But it comes to a black screen saying about New/removed hardware, however i haven ot changed it for a while. The black screen gives me options to start it in safe mode, or SM with networking, of Sm with Command, or Windows normally, however when i select one, windows begins then comes to the blue error screen and back to black. Its an endless cycle, any ideas??

I would try to repair windows. Insert a disk w/ Windows OS on it and you should see a prompt to press enter to boot from CD, follow the on screen instructions to repair or reinstall windows. If the repair does not work, try reinstall. One of the options will reinstall w/o affecting your personal files & programs. Just read each sdreen carefully as you proceed.
I have had some success with this. In one case though it was a failed hard drive causing similar symtoms.

If the laptop has been jarred make sure that everything is secure in its slot. Obviously the hard drive, memory and battery are okay but it never hurts to reseat those things. If everything is snug take out anything you do not need to run such as the cd drive if it comes out.
If none of that works then check to see if your laptop has a recovery option. You should see it on the screen when it firsts boots up if there is one.
If not boot with the windows cd and do a repair installation. The last solution would be to send it in.

Hello.My ACER Aspire One netbook will not properly load, or load at all actually. It worked fine yesterday, I shut it down.. and when I turn it back on it won't work correctly. It comes to a black load...


Hello my friend. The problem is that the "hard drive" has a lot of bad sectors and the netbook cannot recognise it. The Hard disk might need replace with a new hard disk. Please refer to a computer technician. Please rate my help! Thanks!

I got my acer and the power light comes on but the screen is black


This happens with my Acer Laptop too. Make sure the computer is plugged in to a power source and try a forced restart. If that doesn't work, try using the sleep command to but the computer to sleep while the screen is black but the power is on. The computer's power light should shut down, and you should be able to go out of sleep mode by pressing spacebar.

Hey i have an ACER ASPIRE 7720G T5250/160GB/2 GB/NVIDIA/ WIN7 SHOT DOWN SOMETIMES 1 / week SCREEN BLACK RAM PROBLEM ?


by screen black, do you mean constantly black or does it turn on then back off...
If its just constantly dark when you have power and you know its switched on, get a torch and shine it onto the screen... if you look really close you might be able to see your desktop if you can then it tends to mean your backlight inside of your screen has blown. you can buy the replacement part from acer or send it of to be repaired.
Fixing that problem isnt easy.

Black screen with blinking curser in left top corner


Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.

Cam nt workin


it is not being used, this is a common fault of the Orbicam, with no answers or newer drivers from Acer, the belo works for me as i have the same problem along with many others.

open up the cam software as normal, then turn your camera to face the back of your notebook, turn it back again and keep clicking the camera start button and eventually it will come on.

Acer Aspire will not shut down.


  • Common problems are along the lines of what you are saying.
  • Start with the last installed program
  • ( Sony Video Camera ) and remove the program as follows.
  1. Click start, All programs ( it may be highlighted in the list ) look for your Sony Video program, wave the mouse over it to see if it has a menu ( look for uninstall Sony Video ) and follow the prompts.
  • If the program does not come with it's own uninstall program
  1. Click Start, Control Panel, Add or remove programs ( look for it in the list - most likely in alphabetical order, if you have it listed by name )
  2. Click on the program you want and click Remove the Sony Video program.
  3. Check to see if your PC will now reboot.
  4. Strange things happen if the either the software or hardware does not work the way it was intended to do.
  • Try to avoid a deliberate power down (with the button on the front of the case ) - which should be considered a forced shut down or emergency use only.
  • Remove the latest additions to your computer and try the shut down process again.
  • Being a lap top, you could fully charge the battery and take it to a repair guy, phone ahead and explain the situation. Eventually the unit will need to be powered down either way, but if it's in the hands of a repair man, little or no further harm can come to it.
  • If the PC powers back up and seems to run ok with the ram stick in place, it would suggest the ram is fine, but could also be the cause of the strange behavior, for whatever reason.
