    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.

Computer crashed. Computer specialist restored drive. now cannot boot windows. Used restore disk. Did not work. computer boots dos screen then shuts down. boots again then shuts down.


Sounds like a Windows issue. Depending on how valuable it is to you to get your data off the drive, I would suggest buying a new hard drive (they are fairly cheap these days), installing Windows on that. Word of advice: Remove your old drive when doing the Windows install, so as not to accidentally select the hard drive your data is on. Once you have Windows installed, shut down your computer, remove the power cord, and install your old drive on a separate IDE channel or SATA connection. If your PC still tries to boot to the old drive, change the boot order in your PC's BIOS.

I shut computer after windows updates and now it won't power up


1.Try booting into safe mode (F8 on startup) and then uninstall the update or you can run system restore. 2.try going to the advanced boot options and choose "Last known good configuration" 3.The last option is 'to do a repair install' if you have a Windows XP CD you can just do a repair of the OS.

Acer Desktop won't boot after recovery


Why not use your new hard drive as a storage disc. Reconnect your old hard drive as it was before. Hopefully it will boot the computer again. If it does, shut down the unit. On the primary bus, set your old HD as master & the new HD as slave with jumpers. Boot the unit & hopefully you will now have a "c"&"d" HD showing in My Computer. Remember that your are dealing with Windows & what should happen & what really happens can be two entirely different things.

When I switch on Acer Aspire 5315 get message "Configuring updates 3 of 3 0% complete" for a few second then pc shuts down restarts and goes back to the same configuring updates message just...


try starting the computer in safe mode. As the computer boots keep pressing F8 until you hear a beep. The computer will or should start in safe mode, once it has everything will look big, don't worry about that for now, click on start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date for when you know the computer was working without any problems. Once the computer has restored it will shut down and reboot. When/if asked what mode you want to boot/start your computer choose start windows normally. I hope this helps.

On shutting down my laptop it gave the message, "installing 1 of 1" do not turn off your computer. It did not turn off all night. I turned it off by using the on/off button then shut it down...


When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

Sony Vaio VGC-RB576 motherboard fried


if you have problems with outages and surges, then the only way to protect electrical goods is by purchasing a surge protection socket extension. But you should check that your power options in control panel are set that on the shutdown drop down list the pc lists shut down and does not say restart. Also go into bios F2 or Del on boot up and look and see if time and date are correct, if not then the cmos battery needs changing (Cr2032 disc chaped on motheroard) then in advanced cmos settings, then look for 'ACPI', make sure this is enabled so as to support windows shutdown settings, then save settings and exit for a reboot.
