My Acer Aspire 9504 boots to windows, then shuts down

My Acer Aspire 9504 will boot up to Windows, stay on for a few minutes, then shuts down. When I try to reboot, it goes to scan disk, then shuts down. I replaced the motherboard, per a local techs advice, didn't fix the problem. Replace the CPU, Memory, and coolant fan, still with no success. Any suggestions?

It is quite a common problem with acer when they age. If youve replaced all the recommended parts and its still failing, then my only suggestion would be to try to boot it up, and press alt and F10 (THIS WILL WIPE ALL INFORMATION ON THE ACER) so if you have files programms ets that you need they would be lost. Alt F10 Instructs the acer system to Factory reset. If you do this, it will go back to factory standard, so it will go through the origional set up like it did when it was first purchased and you will need to spend some time doing all your windows updates once the install has completed.

Hope this helps.


Thanks

Acer Aspire One notebook.when turn on,starts to boot goes windows did not start screen,can choose option and windows starts to load then just shuts off.if you do not choose option shuts off after about 20...


This is generally a hardware issue - if the computer is under warranty get it fixed through Acer. If not you may need professional help. You don't mention how old the laptop is but if it is older than a year or two and you live in a dusty environment it could be overheating. If the fan is not running or always running on super-high then it is probably overheating.

Another thing to try is using a boot CD (any boot CD will work) and see if the computer still shuts down after that 30 seconds. If yes, definitely hardware. If not, possible that it's a windows issue.

Hope that helps!

Acer aspire one model gz5 showed hibernate on screen, low battery. turned off. recharged battery, now there is a dark screen, manual was no help


To start the computer in safe mode 1.
You should print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut your computer down in step 2.
2.
Click Start and then click Shut Down.
3.
In the drop-down list of the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
4.
As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8.
On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when the boot menu appears.
5.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the appropriate safe mode option, and then press ENTER.
6.
If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.

My Acer Aspire 5315-2153 will boot up. It shut


Start the laptop going as far as it can and press the F8 button as it is starting. This will give you a few startup options. Select Safe Mode. If it's a problem with drivers it might start in safe mode. If it does press the Start Button, Accessories, System Tools and System Restore. You will be given a date to which the system will restore to but you have the option to pick another date. Select a date in bold when the laptop was working and run the program.
If this does not solve the problem you could use a windows installation cd. You didn't say which version of windows you use but you may have an installation disc or be able to get a loan of one.
Failing that there's a program called Spinrite available from http://www.grc.com which can repair most windows computers of any version, has got great reviews and allows you to create a boot disc to repair problem discs. I hope some of these help.

Acer Aspire One loops on start up screen. All it does is show the acer logo, then shows the ''windows was shut down improperly'' screen with all those options and then goes to the windows xp start up...


Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.

The acer 5920 is not starting after shut down


Remove the battery and power for a few minutes , then try it with just the ac adapter, hopefully its just locked up, If you are saying it starts booting but doesn't go to windows all the way then hit the F8 key while booting to boot to safe mode. Please post exact symptoms if it still doesn't work.

Acer aspire 5100 won't stay on when booting on battery


replace the battery. Batteries usually only last about two years and it sounds like it just cant hold any more juice. To find a battery go to google.com and type in the model of computer and push search. Sorry for the news but its an easy fix
