Try to boot in safemode and remove the printer and restart the computer. Guide how to use safe mode.
Microsoft Windows Vista users Tip: If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration. Additional information about this mode can be found on document CH000626.
To get into the Windows Vista Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Aspier 5520 reboots constant. can open safe mode.


That you can start in safe mode tells me that your problem is caused by some software/driver you have installed lately or in worse case by a virus. You can start by starting the pc in safe mode and uninstalling what you have installed the last couple of days or if you have the possibility, restore your system to an earlier date! if it doesn't help, you should back your files up then format the hard drive and install Windows from scratch. OBS. you might have the recovery partition on your hard drive!
Good luck!

Acer laptop wont start up.


You have corrupted files on your system, either from a hard drive beginning to go bad or from just a bad update, use your recovery console, either available during start up or by using the windows cd to boot your computer and have it run a recovery, you will have to re-apply some of your service packs afterwards. Another option in the recovery console is to use your system save points, if you have the recovery console installed then use it to restore your compter to a day before the update.
