Usually this is a sign that you just had windows updates installed and it is configuring them.

See if it starts, if not restart it and don't shut it down, if this keeps doing this, then see if there is any code or anything else it says and post it,
or just use system restore, and restore it to a earlier date.

My monitor turns off every 2 minutes, even when you re power the monitor it will just shut down randomly. anybody knows whats wrong with it? and how much it will cost for repairs?


does it always shut down every 2 minutes? or is it "random" like you said? i ask because it can be configured to turn off as desired (that is if it is not used).

Acer5920 stuck in configuring updates.


This is generally caused by bad blocks in the Master Boot Record(Table). The drive itself is probably not salvagable. You'll need a reputable reapir person to slave your drive to another system to get the data off.

Good Luck
