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.

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.

Aspire 2920 won`t start up


As it's rebooting try tapping the F8 key to get to safe mode. Choose Safe Mode with cmd prompt first. Once your pc starts enter the text chkdsk /f in the black DOS box and reboot. The laptop should go though a check disk and fix problems. May not completely repair your laptop, but it's a start.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
