Gateway NV52 won't wake up.


Is it clean? fan and vents? Unplug, remove battery, leave battery out, plug in, reboot. If that fails, Re Boot and try a System restore/recovery to a date before this issue. OR, Boot to Safe Mode, use this procedure to select Normal Boot: http://www.netsquirrel.com/msconfig/msconfig_win7.html When/If you get a Normal Boot, Open Control Panel, Power Options, select High Performance, select Change Plan settings, set plugged in both to Never, set advanced setting to your preference. Use this procedure: http://windows.about.com/od/customizingwindows/ss/set_power_options_all.htm Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use, remove battery when you use on AC, your Laptop/components will last longer, and will not be subject to possible power surge damage and the battery, IF it malfunctions will not cause a fire hazard.

My screen is too dark. I pressed ''video playback'' on the tool bar and now my screen is dark. Any help?


Hi there, please restart your laptop when its booting press F8 key . You will find few option asking for selection. Select that by using up/down arrow key. Select " Last know good configuration" & press Enter. Next page asking for selecting operating system, for example: windows vista or Windows XP etc. Just select the operating system & press Enter again. ( Hope your laptop showing only one operating system ). Your laptop will start normally. After the if you seen the screen dark then press FN+Right arrow in key board(>). When you press FN + ( < ) or ( >) key that's time its working for brightness controlling for screen. Now if all well then fine other wise please let me know .
Another suggestion is run your Acer driver DVD for installing Display drivers. When finish restart your laptop and watch whats going. If no success then format the Operating system & reinstall again.

Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Safe mode boots okay but not in normal boot - no error either


Do you have the original recovery disk? I recommend inserting the recover disk, restart the computer while continually pressing F12. Select boot from CD, press any key when asked, and you would want to do a "repair". That should fix your problem.

Problems with my laptop


I think it has to do with your video cardsettings.I suggest u should get knoppix live cd which is downloadable free from the net.You then try to boot your computer using knoppix cd by changing your boot options to booting from cd.You enter the boot options by pressing down one of the function keys depending on your computer make.If u are able to boot in to knoppix you can access your video card and then resety it.

Try to boot in safe mode. From a cold boot, hit f8 till it gives you several options including "safe mode". Do that and if you can boot to windows let it do it's stuff before restarting normally. Good luck
