The driver for the thumb drive is causing the problem. Try another Thumb drive from a diffrent manufacturer. Your computer is fine!

I'm getting a blue screen

What was the last thing you did before it happened??? installed a driver??? installed a software???, add a device??? this would help a lot to know...10000 things can make Windoze go in a blue screen... bad device, bad driver, corrupted MBR, bad software, bad memory, etc... try booting in safe mode to see if it works, if it does than it's a bad driver or software recently installed or a bad update that went wrong... if it does blue screen even in safe mode than it's a bad hardware, check all hardware... unplug all the hardware than plug back the hardware one by one to pinpoint which hardware is causing the problem... MEMORY, CD ROM, HARD DRIVE, WIRELESS CARD, etc...

My new acer laptop aspire 5336 2524 froze one night and wont restart it goes to a black screen and tells me an unexpected i/o error has occured

The I/O (Input/Output) error is indicating a hardware fault with your HDD or the communication to it.
It could also be triggered by external storage devices. If you have nothing else plugged into the laptop (such as a USB thumb drive) then your main HDD is likely defective. If the laptop is new, contact your place of purchase, or Acer, for warranty repair.

Getting a black screen and no device found. what

First unplug everything from your AC/outlets.Then systematically check every plug going to and from your screen by pulling them out one by one and reattaching them. POWER cord / VGA cord .The VGA cord looks like a D and has 15 pins it goes in easy no force is necessary, thumb tight the screws on each side.Now power cord make sure it's tight, in the socket.Then plug your AC plugs back into the wall. If that doesn't solve your problem either your screen has gone bad or your video card. Good luck!

Child has pressed buttons on the key board and when booting up it only goes as far as the boot up screen giving the option to select F2 to enter set up or F12 for multi boot selection but when you select...

It's doubtful that this issue was caused by someone pressing a key regardless of when they pressed it or their age ;) . This sounds more like a Hard Drive issue from a major virus. Make sure there are no "system" disks in the computer when turning on. Also, unplug all USB and other peripheral equipment from the computer prior to powering up. Some peripherals don't work and play well with others. There are small driver programs installed on all memory sticks (aka flash drives, thumb drives, etc.). These can cause boot-up problems as well. So, try unplugging everything that is not absolutely necessary and power up. That's your best bet and the easiest to try.
Good Luck!

Blue screen

Some usb devices are like this. The manufactures simply don't tell you that this can happen.

Your best bet is to boot the PC with the device connected and to shut it down before you unplug it. I know it isn't plug and play but this may be your only choice.

I used to have a phone that did this one in every ten times I connected it.
I would hold my breath each time I plugged it in :)

Hope this helps

Acer 3100 laptop running windows xp, my USB ports are not working

No my repair shop see's this alot. All my employee's use thumb drives religously in our shop. I see this happen often esp if it gets used alot. I have even seen this happen when its removed while shutting down the PC. It is possible to attempt to reformat the thumb drive. If you unsuccessful, get a new thumb drive.
