You are actually willing to pay a dollar to have your problem solved?


But seriously it sounds like the computer is faulty, most likely the mainboard, its pretty common in acer machines, it also could be overheating especially the video chipset gets hot and may cause the machine to hang or shutdown unexpectedly.

Well the only real fix for this problem, you won't like it, is to contact acer to get it repaired - IF you are in warranty.


If you are outside of warranty, contact any local repairer to get the fault confirmed before replacing anything in the machine.

Cleaning the machine from dust etc, might help a bit, then also reinstalling windows, by repeatedly tapping on ALT + f10 during start up. if your computer crashes during recovery there clearly is a serious problem.

Hardware failure - the motherboard has a fault and that can only be fixed in a repair shop.

Tip

To Reboot or recovery from CD/DVD problem with OS "Aser"


If you don't press the Alt+F10 key combination or use the recovery CDs, can you get into Windows? Boot with the recovery CDs in. When at the Acer logo during POST, press the F12 key. Then, select boot off CD or DVD. Alternatively, you can enter the BIOS by pressing the F2 key at the Acer logo and go to the Boot tab. There, you can set the CD/DVD drive as the first item in the boot order.
When turning your laptop on, before Windows starts booting, a splash screen appears first (usually with the logo of the manufacturer). Look on the splash screen (usually at the bottom) for a key (usually F10 or F11), assigned for System Recovery. Some manufacturer(s) (e.g. HP) place the recovery files to a hidden (mostly) partition of the hard drive, the others give a Recovery CD/DVD with the laptop.
or
  1. Press the start button from the start menu depending on your operating system(win 2000,xp)
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+delete combination from the keyboard.
  3. If you have a power button on your laptop keyboard,it could also be useful by pressing and hold it down for few seconds

N.B: "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" can exit you from usage and trigger a reboot
or Shutdown. Try and reboot using the operating system. Attempt to use the key combination that will allow you to exit from the operating system and restart the laptop. Be patient, as it may take some time if it has locked up. Hold down the power button. If the operating system's answer to the rebooting will not work, find and hold down the power button of the laptop. This should cause the device to shut itself off. You'll have to press the power button again to power it back on, completing the reboot.
Unplug from the wall and remove the battery. If restarting via the operating system and the power button do not work, unplug the laptop from the wall outlet, and remove the battery from the laptop. This will cause it to power off immediately. Allow time to reboot. Give the laptop time to cool down before you power it back on if you had to do this manually.A few seconds should do unless you have additional problems.

All the Best!

My laptop won't start up it turns on but then nothing


Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot.

If it boots, then shutdown, add battery and restart.

The laptop's screen display may remain black when there is a corrupted graphics driver, or a problem with the LCD display's back light. (Try tilting the screen to 30 degrees and see what happens.)

It could possibly be that your outputting to the wrong screen - most laptops have a "Fn" button that can be pressed in conjunction with a little screen on the keyboard to switch to either internal display or external (say F1 or F2).

My acer aspire 1 725 wont load due to errorcode 0x00000f and cant get into bios to change boot options how do i fix this problem


Shut down your computer completely. Once it has been turned off, press the power button to the "On" position to restart the system. Within the first 10 seconds, press down and hold the F2 button for about three seconds and then release it. Within five to 10 seconds after pressing and holding this button, you should see the BIOS setup screen on the monitor.

Restart laptop and it fails to boot up


Have you tried hitting "esc" key repeatedly once you start the computer? This or the F11 key should take you to the black screen that lets you select to reboot in safe mode etc.
If it does, toggle down to the start in safe mode, let it boot up, then shut down. After shutting down, I have been able to reboot computer into normal mode.
Hope this helps.

My laptop rebooted itself for updates. However, the screen turns blue before it gets to the main screen. It says it shut down windows so it doesn't damage my computer. I don't know how to fix it if i can't...


Boot the laptop, and immediately after you see the DELL splash screen, start pressing F8. This will display a startup menu with a few different options. Choose the option that says "Last Known Good Configuration" - this will back out the last update changes that may have caused your problems. Good luck!!
