Acer Freezes at the start-up logo

Hi my Acer T180 has been freezing lately. It restarted after a Windows update then when it came back on all the appeared was the logo. it seemed to take longer loading so i left it for a bit. half an hour later it was still there. it presents you with the options for setup or boot menu but you can't access them. it just gets locked up. i have not opened up the machine or added anything to it. can someone help please because i have some important things on it.

    the thing is i can't access windows because its stuck at the acer logo at the beginning

  • Don90210 Jan 31, 2008

    it freezes once it gets to the acer logo right at the beginning, so it comes up with a white screen with the logo and the setup and boot menu options but you can't do anything. i tried tab and it brings up the POST but only gets as far as the memory testing before freezing. so it bring up :-

    Main Processor : AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3400+
    Memory Testing : 66560K OK with 64mb Shared Memory

    just recently whenever i turn on the mains switch it turns itself on. does this mean the PSU is shot or is it something else?

  • Viking04 Nov 23, 2008

    i experience the same acer logo screen for approx half an hour and sometimes get the black screen crash,acer say it could be hard disk drive failure,had to comet but comes straight on when tested,could it be our upgraded nvidia monitor or other software that is attached that is causing the delay to boot up,the problem worsens if we ever unplug the PC from the mains,but after a few startups it comes back to normal operating speeds and loads as normal.

Boot your computer and go to safe mode...
Pressing F8 before the computer starts reading the harddrive...
Then go to "Control Panel" and then go to "Add/Remove Programs" then uninstall the windows updates there... they are not compatible to your system... Trust me...

Hi, I installed Windows 7 Professional in ACER M1641 desktop. My problem is that Windows says that the Coprocessor hasn´t got a driver. If I try to find it Windows cannot find it. I have also...


> frequent freezes

That's a different problem.

> driver for Windows 7

Access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012

Select "Windows 7 Professional", to see:

"This page shows only drivers that are not contained in Windows 7"

and the only device-driver that is listed is an "audio" device-driver.

So, the "missing" driver is already on the Windows 7 Installation DVD disk.

Or, try http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com and do a "custom" search, looking for "optional [hardware] updates", to see if Windows Update will offer a device-driver for your hardware.

Upgrading Acer Aspire T180


Try putting back the old RAM.

If it does not happen anymore, then it means it was the RAM.

This does not mean that the new CorsairRAM is necessarily faulty, but that it is having compatibility problems with one of the other devices, for example the video adapter.

Acer Desktop crashing


Hi,
This could be an operating system fault ( Windows/Linux ) But more likely a Hardware or external connected device error.
Solution 1:) try re-installing Windows.

Solution 2:) remove any external add ons, printer/USB devices et,c. And run the computer without Them.
If the computer runs without error, you can pinpoint a faulty external or addon device.

This sounds potentially like a failing memory stick. From another computer download and burn Memtest to a CD and try booting from it to test your RAM.
