This could any number of things. Depends how long it is before it turns off. If it turns off after 20 minutes or so you need to go into control panel and check your power settings. Your system maybe going into standby or hibernate. You dont say whether you can get it to restart easily and what you have to do to get it to do so. If it shuts down almost immediately you may have a hardware fault and windows may be protecting the hardware itself from overheating. You may have a virus/s. To be on the safe side make sure you give it a proper system AV scan.

There may not be a problem. 'No Device' usually just means that nothing has been paired with your laptop. Open up your Bluetooth settings and click 'Add Device' or 'Setup Device' or whatever, and follow the instructions.

Just bought an acer aspire one d255 and it keeps freezing without any apparent reason. I tried to set it back to factory settings but it freezes without finishing the cycle. Can you help?


One of the most common causes of freezing and locking up is faulty memory another is overheating problems.
Check the memory by running Memcheck.
Type mem in the search box after clicking start and run the diagnostics.
Check the vents are not blocked with fluff etc and the exhaust is blowing warm air.
Hope that helps.

Need to remove the cd/dvd drive in my acer aspire 5040. can anyone help with a link to a service manual or video etc...


Normally there is one screw (at the back of the cd drive) that has to be removed either from the bottom of the laptop or in some cases it is under the keyboard.

Then open the cd drive using a paper clip and pull the drive all the way out. Grab the side rails and gently wiggle back and forth while pulling on the drive.

Hope this helps

You did not excersize your cells so they died. When you get a new battery remember to either leave it plugged in for only an hour or two to charge and then unplug it. You fried your brain cells dude!
