    Thankyou for your information. After several trys then leaving the machine unpluged & connecting again the Acer computer loaded correctly and so far the information I have accessed is OK. I also considered your suggestion before E mailing. Still not sure what & why caused the problem or how it resolved it's self.

Sounds like you need to use the recovery discs to load the software back on the drive if you made them,when the pc starts to boot up it should display a certain key for you to enter recovery,possibly F11 ,do that and follow the prompts,be aware though that this will wipe all your data off the drive & set it up as it was when first purchased,if infact it is still on the recovery partition.

good luck

    Good one, That's PC's for you.

    but i would back up all your data, just in case the drive is on its way out,as this problem can be a sign that it is .

    good luck with that.

Screensaver not working


In Windows XP, right click on your desktop somewhere, and choose Properties. On the Screen Saver tab, pick another Screen Saver from the drop down, and set the Wait time to 1 minute. Click OK and see if it works. You may have to drill into "Settings" next to the screen saver. Depending on your hardware, the 3D screen saver might be too much for it to handle. Try disabling some things in settings or choosing a different Screen Saver.
Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!

Computer starts up windows to screensaver and goes no further. There is no start menu and cannot start it in safe mode.


by screen saver, Im assuming you mean the desktop wallpaper. (screen saver is the program that comes up and shows pictures moving around, or stars flying by, or pictures of pipes building some over-rebuilt plumbing in outer space). Whats going on is, your Windows shell (Explorer.exe) is not loading. that is almost ALWAYS caused by a virus. If you cannot load in safe mode, you may not be able to recover that system without a professional. If there is nothing of major importance on that drive, I suggest you gather your OS discs and your drivers and application discs and reformat and reload.Based on what you describe, your explorer cannot load and cannot process because of an infected file being loaded during startup.
