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.

My acer Travelmate 242lc will not power on


First think , has it been dropped, jarred, banged, .....you get the idea? Does it continue to blink, the HDD? Do you see a "ghost image" in the monitor in a bright light? Do you here sounds? You say "nothing else happens", meaning the light stops blinking? Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to boot noemally.

I have an acer travelmate 2300, i cant format it because the hard drive cannot detect by the computer, what is the probelm?


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then it is most likely faulty.
To get your Acer operating again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Acer's device drivers and your programs.
You candownload the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

My acer empowering technology software is gone after my travelmate 4220 had to be wiped. how do i get this reinstalled without paying for it as the laptop did not come with any disks?


Hi
Who did the wipe? A professional tech would have made sure that you got your original Acer operating system plus utils and the maintenance section of the hard drive. Take it back and have it done right. If Acer did this then send it back they should know better.
