Wont boot or turn on

    It powers on for a moment, acts like it's going to boot then clicks and shuts down. Nothing ever comes up on screen. It did this once before, and once I finally got it to boot I ran recovery on it, and the problem went away for a few months. Seems the software on this thing is integrated deeply into the hardware. Virus or something. I let my mother use it and my wife use it. My mother is hopelessly inept and ALWAYS loads systems with every piece of software that asks from every website that asks.

Hi Zero

The power supply may be dead. Have you got another one to try, or a mates to borrow and check that your is good or bad. This is the first thing to do to sort out your problem

How to giving boot with different ways to acer travelmate 2423 laptop


1) You can set your boot options in your bios, watch as you laptop boots, you should see something like "Hit F2 to enter setup". Hit F2, select boot options then choose to boot from CD, HDD or external drive. Take care because you don't want to mess up your Bios. So read the screen carefully before changing anything. When you're happy, select save and exit then reboot, you should then boot from the device of choice in the order of choice.

2) Windows boot options, windows has several options for booting from, including safe mode. To do this, hit F8 several times while the laptop is booting, you should come to a screen with the several options on offer.

I have a Acer Aspire 5745 (CPU: Intel i5 processor 2.5GHz RAM: 2GB OS: Win 7 Home Basic) which is only 2 months old. Yesterday I started a installation setup of a game, when suddenly the system restarted....


Hi, I do apologize for the inconvenience you have been facing.The reason why the laptop does not reboot to Windows even after reinstalling Windows is because the issue is with the hard drive not being recognized the reason for which you get a blinking line on the screen after the Acer logo .In this case I would suggest that if the laptop is under warranty please contact the Acer Technical support and have an order placed for repair.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

2. Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer.
3. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop.
4. Press "Alt + F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files.
5. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window.

My laptop is asking for boot service i cannot start my laptop,how can i solve this?


I have a couple of questions:
1. Is there any USB connected hard drive or flash drive connected?
If so, it could be that the computer is trying to boot from them.You would have to change the computer's boot settings in the BIOS.
2. I hope it isn't this one, it could mean your hard drive has gone to the bad or the boot sector, MBR, is corrupt. I think ACER's have a diagnostics partition. On boot, you should see options to for booting to another device. Choose this and run the diagnostics on the hard drive. If under warranty, contact ACER.
I hope it is the first one.
Doug.

Acer laptop with vista now windows wont work


1. Boot to safe mode by tapping F8 as soon as you power your computer on.

2. Launch system restore under Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.

3. Just follow the steps and select a restore point (any day before this problem started).

4. System restore should also be able to uninstall the Automatic Updates that could have caused the issue.

Another option is you can Contact Microsoft Support and tell them that you're having issues with automatic updates, you shouldn't be charge for the support if it's still under warranty.
