    The Acer PC that I have, makes a heavy "fan" noise than shuts down. It takes 3-4 times after it shut down again to get it up.

Replace the thermal grease. The stuff they use is cheap and does not conduct heat very well. My system used to make a loud fan noise and it would turn off. After I replaced the thermal grease, there's no more loud fan noises and I can actually stream videos now! The thermal grease only costed 10 bucks. Make sure you remove the old thermal grease with some alcohol. Nail polish remover works just as good.

This is commonly caused by Malaware, Adaware, or a Virus. Check if you can still boot up under safe mode. If you can try to restore your PC to a previous date that is available.


hope this helps.

Try getting in through Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key while the computer is booting.

If you can get in.

Right click on My Computer, select Properties, click Advanced, click on Settings for Startup and Recovery. Make sure there is NOT a check in the Automatically Restart box.

Acer Aspire One notebook.when turn on,starts to boot goes windows did not start screen,can choose option and windows starts to load then just shuts off.if you do not choose option shuts off after about 20...


This is generally a hardware issue - if the computer is under warranty get it fixed through Acer. If not you may need professional help. You don't mention how old the laptop is but if it is older than a year or two and you live in a dusty environment it could be overheating. If the fan is not running or always running on super-high then it is probably overheating.

Another thing to try is using a boot CD (any boot CD will work) and see if the computer still shuts down after that 30 seconds. If yes, definitely hardware. If not, possible that it's a windows issue.

Hope that helps!

When I go to start menu to shut down and press shut down it will just reboot and will ot shut down


Step 1:
Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operation, registry problems, virus problems and spyware issues. What's more, a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.

Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop. Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop. Press "Alt-F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot-up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window. Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration. Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop. Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

I turn on my Acer iconia w501p but nothing happens... Someone can help me?


Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

My computer dnt want to work after i upgrade it


It is possible that either the new components are not fully compatable with your notebook computer or the components are not making good contact with the rest of the system. Ensure that all components reciently installed are full seated and secure.

It would be a good idea to check that the components that you reciently installed into your notebook are in fact not the reason for the failed boot. Install your old components to confirm this. If for instance the notebook functions well after reinstalling the old components then you can say that the new components are not functioning in your notebook effectively.

Claim warranty support on these new components if this is the case.

Take care!

Cannot maintain wallpaper.


1. change your theme to windows classic and then setup your favorite wallpaper.
2. if this fails create a new user account and see if you have the same problem in it too. If no, you can use the new user account and delete the one which you are using currently.

Laptop won't shut down normally!


You should go to the BIOS and load the default settings. Also, check your device manager to check if all hardware is installed and functioning properly (no conflicts, etc).
