Question about Acer Aspire 5535-5050 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 5535-5050 only starts in "safe mode"

My Acer Aspire 5535-5050 laptop will only start up in "safe mode", but in that mode it won't let me delete or make changes to any of the hardware, programs, uninstall, etc. Once in a while it will start up in regular mode, where my screen saver and desktop icons appear, but I am unable to open ANY programs or even the "start" menu. When i let it sit for a while in "safe mode" this message comes up: "The screen saver couldn't run b/c it requires a new video card or one that's compatible with Direct 3d". I don't know if a new video card is the solution, or it I have a virus, or if there is another problem or solution. Thanks.

When you get to safe mode try to do a system restore to a date that the computer worked............on xp it will give you a screen to enter safemode with yes or no options ........choose no to go diorectly to system restore...............if not xp look for system restore in the system tools folder on start menu or in control panel............the screen saver error is most likely because you are in safe mode.

My Acer Aspire6920g keeps on restarting when plugged the charger, but when it is used in Safe Mode it does not restart


There may be a hardware change or driver issue because in safe mode, it doesn't load VGA drivers or other hardware. Use safe mode with network support and use the help file to guide you.

Swap out the ram memory one at a time making sure there is one in the slot at all times, no change! remove hard drive and reseat back in place, no improvement! try your backup disc if available, won't work! have the hardware tested.

My Acer Aspire 5100 laptop won't startup. When I hit the power on button the button light up and stays on. The harddisk light above the keyboard lightup for about 5 seconds and then go off. Notting...


Try starting it up in "Safe Mode" as it is starting up Keep pressing F12 key, I believe it is. Start up in safe mode, if it starts and runs you probably have a virus.
