Hello there undone_v2.

Here's your GEEK-steer ...

Although your problem could be caused by a few different things, it perfectly describes one of them: your CPU heatsink fan is out. In which case what is happening is that within the several moments after each startup, the CPU reaches, then exceeds its critical high temperature point that the motherboard (MB) is designed to monitor. The MB then dutifully (and thank-fully) performs an emergency shut-down in order to prevent the CPU from frying out.


Visually inspect that the CPU heatsink fan is working after you power on your system. If it's not, immediately power-down, then take steps to replace it.

However, if the fan is working, you still might want to check the CPU temp either from within your applicable BIOS display page (e.g., Hardware Monitor, PC Health, or similar sounding), or from within a possibly installed heat monitor applet found within your Start menu software items. If it is quickly reaching a critically high temp (this can vary anywhere from 65-90 Celsius depending upon your particular CPU type), then strongly consider freshly reseating the CPU to the heatsink since it's likely the necessary contact bond has been breached.

If it's neither 1 or 2, please follow up with description of the problem in greater detail, as it could also be your RAM or the MB itself.

Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...

Hmm sounds like a faulty motherboard first if you know anything about the insides of a computer try unplugging the HDD the ram and the disk drives and if you have a floppy disc drive unplug that as well. basiclyunplug everything exept screen power supply keyboard and CPU if the problem carrys on it looks like youll need a new motherboard

Acer extensa will not boot to windows

What is happening when you press the power Button? Do you see any ligths, Any HDD moves? IF DOES.

TURN OFF by pressing and holding your finger on power button.
wait 60 sec. turn on and repeatedly press several times at F8 button.
If page opens on black and white, Use SAFE MODE.
wait til all line down. Then you will see windows opening in safe mode.
WHat ever you install last, remove, scan your computer for virus,spyware. when its finished, check your computer if need defragmentation. by Accessories>System Tools> Defragment.
If message comes such as windows will do this at schedule time or so.
Just turn off your computer using shotdown option (NOT BROWN BUTTON ON START) go to next arrow.
then turn on again see if windows comes back.
