Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My acer aspire one netbook keeps shutting off thirty seconds or so after it starting. Sometimes a screen appears saying that there was a problem shutting down and it gives me options of clicking Safe Mode or Regular Start. No matter what I click the laptop still continues to turn off. It is fairly new and is just over a year old so I don't see why or how the battery could be dead already. I just need help figuring out how to make it start without it shutting off seconds later

Your ventilation fan may be clogged and causing the computer to overheat.
Try a can of compressed air "AIR DUSTER" and a vacuum cleaner to clean the fan.
If this is not the problem, you may need to repair the windows installation

I have an Acer Aspire One netbook (model AOA-110) and when i try to boot it up it goes to the boot up screen and brings up a black screen and asks if i want to choose safe mode, safe mode with networking,...

Frequently ACER ASPIRE ONE A110 and A150 hang and give a black screen of death. Most probably this is due to the BIOS problems and if you want to boot them again, a BIOS updating is required.
First, download the required BIOS from the Acer site: and unzip it by another computer. (Your netbook is already dead!)

Among the extracted files and folders, there is a folder namely Dos_Flash. Open it and there are four file items there like "3310, 3310.fd, FLASHIT, and readme.
Now rename 3310.fd as ZG5IA32.fd and FLASHIT as FLASHIT.EXE and keep the rest as they are.
Copy all these four files to a fully formated and blank USB stick. In this USB stick there should be no other files or folders than what you copied now ( 3310, ZG5IA32.fd, FLASHIT.EXE, readme )

Keeping this USB stick in hand go to the dead netbook. Switch off the device if it is already on. Insert the USB stick. Having the AC power and the battery connected to the device press and hold FN+Esc and simulatneously press the power button to turn on the netbook.
Release the FN and Esc buttons after a few seconds and now the power button will be blinking. In this stage press once the power button alone.
Now the device will start updating the BIOS, we can see the process as the LED of the USB stick flashes. In a few minutes-say less than 10 minutes-the system will restart and come to life again.
Don't disturb it during this process and wait until it comes to full level of operational condition to remove the USB stick.

Best of luck,

To stop acer logo before starting windows xp

Well, Firstly this might be a extreme case but is to reformat your hard drive removing any manufactures partition, and reinstalling the Operating System, but what i would do first is the go to start---run---(type this command and hit enter)"msconfig" the system configuration window should pop up. Go to the boot tab and place check mark in the box which says "No GUI boot" you mat also change the timeout seconds there too. hit apply then OK and reboot your system.

hope this works for you. let met know.
