If you have a corrupted installation or a corrupted disk you can try and reinstall the OS. I also suggest you place your ear up to the laptop during the recovery, mostly where is freezes and listed for an exact repeating click, this may be a sign of a dying hard disk. What OS of windows do you have on that machine?

When i switch on my acer aspire 5735 i see a blue screen informing me that windows is updating 3 of 3 updates but nothing happens as the screen just hangs for hours? Thanks


i think your windows was updating itself but there is a problem with the update maybe you did not finish the update or the update file got corrupted. try if you can go safe mode that might fix the problem if still the same you need to reinstall your Windows.
if you are familiar with Windows installation there is an option there wherein you can repair your previous Windows installation. try that it might help before reinstalling windows.

One of the drivers or programs that is set to launch during boot is corrupted. You will have to find out which and uninstall / upgrade it.
Boot in Safe Mode, click Start, Click Run and type msconfig and hit enter - the startup management window will launch. Click on the Startup tab and untick all the programs in there. Now reboot. If you get the same error then the problem is with a driver - uninstall them all then download the latest versions from the Acer Support site and install them one by one. If the problem is fixed then one of the programs is corrupted - open msconfig / Startup again and tick one program at a time with reboot until the problem returns: uninstal that program.

My sound went of and it said no audio output device is installed


It seem like the drivers those you have are may not be updated or may be corrupted.
Download the latest drivers from the below website.
Then uninstall your old drivers from your laptop and reboot.
Then install the new audio drivers according to the Operating System that you are using (XP/ VISTA).
Again reboot your computer and it should work perfectly fine.
