If the PC posts

(power on self test) and you see stuff on the screen, no matter how short , do the following: (this checks for a software problem)

· when booting up press F8 and when you get to the menu, boot up into safe mode,
· then restore the pc back to a date before you had the problem, and/or remove any program you installed prior to you having the problem,
if that don't work Try
· a boot-able anti virus disc use it to check for any viruses , if not
· try a recovery disc, or operating system disc ,
· both disc's will try to access the hard drive. if they do not work,
· (nothing has changed) nothing comes on the screen.

if PC does not post:
(then it is a hardware problem)


· Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
· remove the ram and clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser,
· and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
· swap them around if you have more than one, try one at a time.
· if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible,
· or take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
· if you can establish that the ram is ok, and recovery /system disc's do not work, then it is most likely, that the motherboard has failed .
· Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the PC from posting.
good luck with that and let me know how you get on.

How do I fix window error recovery loop


Unfortunately, there are times when the OS gets so corrupted that a recovery or repair is simply not possible. At that juncture the only alternative you have is to perform a clean reinstall of the software that came with the computer. Before doing that I would suggest getting into the hard drive and backing up any and all critical files you have there. You can download the Hiren disk from the internet, and use it to boot up to a pseudo windows environment that will allow you to get into the drive and transfer the material to an external hard drive or usb stick. Then do the foul deed.

Xp booting loop bios


Seems to be a bad driver or damaged boot.
If the computer shuts down and restarts check CPU fan and blow dust out from heat sink, CPU may be overheating.
Otherwise, use the recovery disk to repair, or the installation CD and do the system repair. Or from repair disk, if your computer worked fine before, Restore To a Previous setting.

System completely locked out... will not boot!


there will be a setting in the BIOS that will stop the ACER logo, and you can see the Diagnostic screen, and get an idea of where in the process it is hanging....

Personally I bet it is hanging at the 'detect SATA' devices stage.

Open the side panel and remove and re-seat all SATA device cables, at BOTH the device and the motherboard.

If that fails, then the boot sector may need to be repaired on the hard drive. you will need a Windows disk for the OS that your client has though....although if it's an MBR disk you can use an XP or a win2k disk to repair. There are downloadable tools in iso format that you can burn and use to boot from the CD and then repair the boot-sector ...

Blue screen error acer desk top


hi friend the blue screen comes when there is a 1:hardware problem
2:virus problem
3:Installation Disk is corrupted
4:RAM problem

First, check your CD and clean or replace it as necessary. Your next step should be to test your system memory for errors with a diagnostic program.
To do this obtain the Windows Memory Diagnostic or Memtest memory diagnostic programs on floppy or CD we mentioned earlier, and use it to boot your system and test the memory. If either of these programs shows any errors in your memory, you have likely found the source of your troubles.
Chances are you will need to purchase new memory. For more information on faulty memory and memory diagnostics, see PCstats Guide to diagnosing bad memory .

Ok.. I thought you said its a new Pc and the problem with boot up usually indicates a troublesome HDD. I would suggest that you utilize the warranty while you still have it..
