Hi, try taking the battery out for ten seconds, then restart computer. If you have received a corrupted update, you may need to reset your operating system to a time before the update; to do this boot into safe mode by pressing the ESC or Del key during initial boot fase.

Try updating the drivers in your system Also check with Aspire to see if there are any BIOS updates you need to install. To update drivers do not use ANY driver update software, instead download them from Aspire and install one at a time.

Laptop keeps shutting down


There are a few reasons, bad power supply adapter, cooling fan is not working or there is dirt blocking the ports causing it to shut down, battery issues, "remove to verify" the DC jack in the laptop has become intermittent and must be dismantled down to the motherboard level and flipped over for solder touch up.

Windows vista starter update and install failed....


in my experience you need to reinstall your OS, Vista is a pain in the *** where sometimes you cant do anything other than format and start again, though i heard a rumour that "starter" doesnt let you install alot of things, like updates, dont quote me though.

My laptop comes on and all I can get is the Vista screen and the message 'installing 3 of 3 updates 0% complete. Please don't shutdown your computer'. I can't get a menu or anything. What can I do to get...


Your computer has downloaded and installed a few updates. You need to allow the laptop to complete this sequence of events. Once completed your computer will boot just like normal. If you do shutdown the computer before the installation is complete you may have to download and install the same updates again. This is perfectly normal...do not take your computer to a repair shop!

C drive filled


It might not help but sounds to me like it updated a lot of updates. You might have to let it keep starting and rebooting till it has installed all the updates.How do you know it filled your hard drive?
