Reset button acer laptop


Laptops do not have reset buttons ! If your laptop is frozen and won't respond hold down the power button for about 20 seconds and force it to shut down. Only do this if you have no other alternative as it is not good for the hard drive of the laptop. Try the three finger salute first CTRL- ALT - DEL and select task manager if windows system and see if any processes or applications have frozen and close them then select shutdown from the task manager if it is not frozen up.

Where i find my reset button on my aspire laptop 5250-0450


There is no Reset button on it, those went out with DOS based computers. All you can is either Restart or if the computer is frozen, just hit Ctrl, Alt, Del keys at the same time and choose from the menu that comes up.

Turn the SYNET07526 over and insert a tooth pick in a small hole 1in diagonally right of the lower right side of the data plate. This will reset your machine and possibly fix the problem by loading a fresh copy of the operating system

My curser has frozen


Press your Windows button to get back to your start menu and close it down from there. If it won't close down from there press CTL ALT and DEL all together just the once and it should take you to a different screen that will allow you to shut down or if all else fails hold the power key down until it closes.
Re boot and allow windows to go to protect mode. When the hard drive light has finished flashing, close it down again. Next time you boot it should be fine.
Hope that helps.

Cursor frozen and cannot cut the computer off or move the cursor


Ok try to boot in native DOS if the unit still froze. If it froze then check your memory card, reseat or clean it with soft eraser only its edge connector. Do this when battery is disconnected and no any other power source is connected to the unit.

Then if it run native DOS. If you can backup your important files, installation code. This will end restoring your unit to restore factory, do you have your restore disc?

Or you can try first to run in safe mode/repair options. Check if it can do some system restore.
