    my acer aspire 1430 power key wont turn off even after complete shutdown, with CPU still running. if left as it is on battery mode, it'll drain its battery and would flag a 'not completely shutdown' message upon re-boot.

Dear f1at3r1c

Righteo then, you should be starting by resetting your BIOS, and you can do this by removing the outer casing o the PC tower. Once yoiu have done this you then need to find the jumper that clears the CMOS/ BIOS. Now if you are somewhat unsure of what a jumper switch is, it just consists of a smallplatic cap which covers two metal conductive pins on the motherboard. There is usually a pin which is not covered.

Now once you have found the CMOS/ BIOS jumper setting, you will need to first remove the motherboard battery. The battery is nothing more than a glorified watch battery of the CR2032 type, and it will be silver in colour and obviously round in shape (typical cell battery).

Once you have removed the battery, you will need to then clear the CMOS/ BIOS and this is done by moving that jumper switch into the clear position. The pin that is exposed will need to be covered withthe plastic jumper, and the pin on the opposite side will need to be exposed. Leave the jumper in the clear position for about 10-20 seconds or so, and then replace it back to the original position. (doing this discharges all of the electricity in the BIOS/ CMOS chip). Once you have done this, you put the battery back in place and then start the machine, then you are good to go. Start the machine and enter the BIOS as you planned to do. You might want to consider ormatting your hard disk and re-installing windows or whatever operating system you have, and this is eeasy enough, just change the boot sequence to boot from your CD/ DVD drive first, the your hard drive second. Once its loaded up, re-enter the BIOS and reset it back to HDD first.

Now f this has not worked, then you have an oooopsie (this is my saying of oh ***T, oops, something has malfunctioned. Its more than likely to be hardware driven, so take out your hard drive first and try to boot, if it lets you bios, then you found your fault. Try this with all devices until you either find the fault, or you have narrowed this to your processor/ motherboard.


Now im sure this will solve your problem, but there is one thng you should need to know about, and it is how to identify the correct jumper. This will have either any of the following markings written on the motherboard very close to the where the jumper is. You may need glasses/ magnifyer lens in order to read the lettering, but it should say one of the following things.

CLRCMOS
CLCMOS
CLRBIOS
CMOSRST
RESET
CMOSRT
BIOSRST
CMOSCLR
CLEAR
could also be under J1, JUMPER1

Now im sure that this is the fixya for you, but if this still does not work, then please get hold of me, and i will provide you with more info.

I wish you all the best, and hope you manage to solve this issue sortly

kind regards

yours sincerely

Oz

Wont boot


The BIOS might need to be set to allow for booting from the CD.
As the machine starts up - Watch the screen carefully, and you will see instructions (briefly) on how to enter BIOS set-up mode.
Be careful though, as you don't want to change anything else, as this could cause further issues.

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue then select restart if the problem still persists f8 back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option if it is a hardware issue the system restore might not work
hope this helps you

Acer Aspire SA85 stays on Acer logo


Hi bob,

Usually system stops at the startup screen or the startup logo, when it finds some fault in detecting the IDE drives(ie,your harddisk or cd drive), if you dint get any get stuck in the logo, you have to see what happens at the background by clicking on f1 key or f12 or TAB or some key to show the activity rather than logo.....

After seeing the error we can conclude or decide about the problem, but when you were not able to see the screen after pressing any key as specified in your manual, Or it hangs after the LOGO screen, this must be problem with your harddrive, try changing the harddish or try connecting once again by removing it...


Enjoy Rate!

Acer Aspire85 wont boot anything


You need to get into Bios Setup when the pc first starts.

I am not sure but I think the F2 key lets you into Bios Setup

The primary boot device needs to be the Cdrom drive.

The starting order for the pc needs to be set to
1st Cdrom
2nd HDD

You should then be able to install Vista.

Try pressing F12 on boot-up. I'd recommend getting another PC as I have had multiple problems with this one. Or at least make sure you back up work regularly
