Acer 5733z-4633 is stuck in a sort of boot loop. Won't enter bois setup or boot device options screen. Is this a hard drive issue?(it kinda makes a funny clicking noise then starts all over to try


Yes! it does sound like the hard drive is bad, remove hardware to see if you can enter bios and boot device, if yes the hard drive needs to be replaced, if no change there is a secondary problem.

Sometimes these laptops get stuck in a loop. Try removing the battery and the AC power cord. With these still removed, open the lid, and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.

Replace the battery, and plug it back in to the mains, and press the power button again. Hopefully this will clear the issue.

I tried using the operating system disk to try and fix the error 0xc000000e like stated and it just loops back to the error.


This indicates a bad hard drive, remove hardware and re-seat back into place. If this fails remove hard drive and take it to the computer shop for testing, if it fails you will need a new hard drive.

Hibernation mode


First thing to try is to remove the battery and disconnect the AC adapter. Press the power button for a full 10 seconds to drain residual power from the capacitors on the board. Give it 5 mins then put the AC adapter and battery back in and give it a try. You might also refine your hibernation settings - I had a 5000 which is similar and finally turned hibernation off. Also check for a pin switch that the lid pushes down when it closes to see if something is holding the switch down when the lid is raised. I dont remember if that model has a mechanical push switch or a magnetic. Magnetic shouldnt do it but mechanicals are very prone to getting stuck.

I was trying to install a webroot spyware application to my acer aspire 3000. once it asked for product code and i typed it in, my pc went into hibernation and I cant get it to turn back on. please advise....


Hibernation usually happens when the battery goes flat. It may have nothing to do with the software. Please ensure the laptop is well connected and the battery is charging. And then try to turn it on again. If I'm wrong and the application you purchased is actually a malware in disguise, then I'd suggest you try to boot with a recovery CD and then uninstall the application. Unless there is physical disc damage that the malware caused it should be able to turn on. Hope it all goes well. If my ideas help you, please do rate me. Thanks

My laptop has went into hibernation and shows a small moon and that the battery is in use. I took out the battery and it still shows it in use. It won't come out of hibernation and won't go back to...


The moon means Sleep or standby mode, if the laptop attempted to enter hibernation and sleep mode at the same time it could just be stuck in a hibernation loop and unable to load.

To test this, remove the battery and AC adapter, then hold your power button down for thirty seconds. Once you've done this replace the battery and power cord then try turning it on.

Let me know how you make out and if it doesn't work provide any other details you can including anything that comes on the screen and any beep codes you hear as it fires up.

Thanks and good luck,

Chris

Auto hibernated, will not power back up


It's possible that the laptop is stuck thinking it should be resuming from standby but cannot find the data in memory. Remove the battery, unplug the power cord, and hold down the power button for at least 10 seconds. Then plug JUST the power cord back in and try to boot the system. If you still get no response then it's possible that one of your RAM sticks is going bad. With the battery and power cord removed try removing both sticks of RAM. Then try to boot the system again with only the power cord in use and no RAM installed. See if you get some sort of response from the BIOS. Hold down the power button to turn the computer off again, remove the power cord, and then try booting the system with just one of the memory sticks installed. If you can isolate one of the sticks as causing the failed boot, then that stick is most likely faulty.
