Question about Acer Aspire 9500 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Laptop crashed

I had my laptop on, everthing okay. Ran an errand and came back to a grey screen with a blue box. Looked like old DOS format. Blue box was titled: Boot Device. Then the options are: Hard Drive, CDROM/DVD Drive, Floppy Device, Network Boot. When I select Hard Drive or any other option, the screen simply quickly flashes and returns to the same message. NOTHING HAPPENS. Took it to the Geek Squad and they said it was fried and not worth fixing. It is 1 1/2 old. SERIOUSLY??!!!??
Their notes are: Will not boot, Bios not recognize hdd, Hooked hdd to our bench and hdd powers on but not recognized, won't bood from USB drive either, NO DRD. Unit will not boot past splash screen.

HELP!!!!!! Is it really dead? Is it the "motherboard"? Can't those be replaced? Are they expensive?

Blue screen


This seems to be an Operating system issue , best way to resolve this is by Re-Installing the Operating system which will wipe everything in the laptop Hard disc, At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery. The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD. If the hard drive is replaced the system loses its eRecovery features. These features are on the hard drive and cannot be reinstalled

Hi there, please restart your laptop when its booting press F8 key . You will find few option asking for selection. Select that by using up/down arrow key. Select " Last know good configuration" & press Enter. Next page asking for selecting operating system, for example: windows vista or Windows XP etc. Just select the operating system & press Enter again. ( Hope your laptop showing only one operating system ). Your laptop will start normally. After the if you seen the screen dark then press FN+Right arrow in key board(>). When you press FN + ( < ) or ( >) key that's time its working for brightness controlling for screen. Now if all well then fine other wise please let me know .
Another suggestion is run your Acer driver DVD for installing Display drivers. When finish restart your laptop and watch whats going. If no success then format the Operating system & reinstall again.
After these two things if the same things happened then straight forward format your OS and install it again. Because your OS corrupted by Virus.

Thanks & waiting for your feedback

Blue Screen with error


Sounds like it's time to reinstall Windows without formatting, recover your data, and then format and reinstall Windows.

Process for your specific laptop should be located in the user manual and recovery disks that came with the laptop.

Acer Aspire 5535-6608 crashing


This problem is due to a failing hard drive I believe. When the virus scan is working you get a clicking sound then it crashes. Clicking sounds from your laptop while running scans on the hard drive are bad. The first thing to do is to get your irreplaceable files backed up then contact a service professional to get the drive replaced. If it is a reputable service person they should be able to clone the drive over to a new drive with no major issues. Be sure to insist on your old drive back. Even though it may have issues, my guess is that you still have personal information you would not want someone else to get hold of.

Hello I have an acer aspire 5535 and it keeps


The complete solution to this fault (Acer 5535 keeps crashing under vista) is to use Windows XP instead of Vista. Set up a Dual Boot so you can CHOOSE to load XP or Vista each time you turn on the laptop. I've put XP on my 5535 and it's SO much faster and seems perfectly stable now - no crashing at all.

A full video showing how to do this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdfU9TXIAd4




Once you've done this you won't have any problems with the laptop anymore.
This is a perfect solution to the crashing problem!

Blue Screen


please remove battery and ac-power for a couple of minutes and then try to reboot the computer.

if it still doesnt work, shut it down, remove battery and ac.
remove ram
connect ac-power
try to boot without ram
remove ac power
insert ram
insert battery
connect ac and try to boot again.



when the blue screen appear, please write down the top line that looks something similar to this:

IRQL_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL_ETC_ETC

and the line close to the bottom that says

STOP: 0x000021 (0x000+++alot of not needed numbers)


when you have done that please come back to me.
