Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Locked up while on a website and could not get to 'control-alt-delete.' Mouse locked, too. On/off switch would not work (stayed lit) so I unplugged the power cord. When I tried to re-start the computer I could hear a fan running but it would not boot up, nothing on the monitor and no lights on the keyboard. Vista Home Premium was preloaded so I do not have a boot disk.I tired pressing F1, F2 and F11 and with monitor off but nothing worked. Computer has not been been moved or abused so all internal connections should be fine. Have updated Windows Vista Home Premium regularly and also updated Avira anti virus and anti malware programs regularly. Using Firefox and Vista Home Premium O/S. Computer is 2 years old and was purchased new from Best Buy.
I've seen a similar issue on Acer Veriton 7900. When you unplug the power chord while the machine is still running the BIOS/CMOS gets bugged up. If your PC doesn't have a 3 year warranty you can clear the CMOS/BIOS. To do this, note the following...
1.) Unplug the power cord
2.) Remove the CMOS battery from the unit
[OPTIONAL] move the jumper on the mainboard to the 'clear position' It should be indicated on your mainboard.After 30 seconds move jumper back on original position
3.) Wait for 30 seconds
4.) Place CMOS battery back into its position
5.) Reconnect the power cord and attempt to power on the unit.
