Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire AST180-UD440A Desktop. It will not start. I tried safe mode but it goes through 2 screens and then freezes. I tried the recovery disk and the repair startup items on the recovery disk but it just runs forever (5 hours). What would you try next?

I would try loading Spinrite or a diagnostic disk. Spinrite would test the hard drive. The diag would test the other components.

How do I get into safemode on my acer aspire desktop


1 Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time. 2 During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup." 3 Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears. If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2. 4 Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard. 5 Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection. The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

I cant get my computer to fully boot up


This might happen if you install McAfee with applications running, or not restarting Windows, etc. I am not sure why you couldn't boot in Safemode, booting in safemode is exactly what you need to do to uninstall McAfee.

Trouble after RAM upgrade


sounds more like a compatibility issue with the new ram. Take it or send it back and get a different brand. Or better yet was it running bad to begin with, before them ram upgrade? If so you prolly loaded down with adware and spyware, possibly even a virus. I would suggest doing some good maintenance if thats the case.

PC freezes on boot-up


Try booting the thing in Safe Mode. Upon startup (after the Acer logo goes) press F8 several times. You will be offered a menu select Safe Mode (at the very top of the list). If the system reaches the desktop, you can repair your Windows. For the three fixes below you will need to go Start Menu>Run...
1) Write: fixmbr, and press ENTER.
2) Write: fixboot, and press ENTER.
3) Write: chkdsk, and press ENTER.
(The later will take several minutes, but you can read what stage it is doing).

Acer Desktop doesn't boot


I have had the same problem than djlimit.
I have contacted ACER service on line (in France, were I live) . They propose a quotation for repair against 60 Euros.
I shipped the product through (prepaid) express parcel service. I got it back 10 days later. They simply exchanged the main PCB.
