    Thank you, but it doesn't boot up past the update screen so there is no way to see what is updating. It never makes it to the desktop---just stops on the update screen and reboots every 10 seconds back to the same spot. It is running Vista. The microsoft emblem floats along the bottom when it starts booting up, then is goes right to a bluish color screen that says update 3 of 3 0% complete, then reboots, etc. etc. I tried running the repair module during boot up but the sytsem couldn't find an issue, also tried booting up in safe mode, but same results every time--back to update and reboot.

Acer launch is stuck in a loop after system reboot- acer extensa 5620z windows vista


Something that is supposed to launch at startup is corrupted. Try booting in Safe Mode - if you can then disable all programs (including security ones) and try again. If now it works you know that it's one of them - enable them one by one till it fails again. If it doesn't work then it's either one of the drivers or Windows itself. Best solution is to reinstall

I think I have had a bad update. Mine boots to Step # of update do not turn off then says shutting down and keeps repeating. i have tried to reboot to last sucessful date and it fails? HELP!!!!!


Boot into safe mode and undo the updates through Windows Update. You can boot into safe mode by continuously pressing the f8 key on your keyboard right after you turn the laptop on, and then select Safe Mode from the menu.

How do I reboot my Extensa 5630Z?


Reboot? Like turn off and turn back on? If your computer is frozen, hold the power button for 6-10 seconds. It'll turn off, then just turn it back on.

Window vista office 2007 trail key


The trial version of Microsoft office expires after 30 days. You must purchase Microsoft Office 2007 if you wish to keep using it.

I suggest a free open source alternative - Open Office.

I have an asus pc 1000hd that does this every now and then. I hold the power button down and the whole machine shuts off after a few seconds. Either that or you can take out the battery, wait a few seconds and then reinsert it

Acer Extensa 5210 laptop wont boot


Try the following:
1) Remove power cord, battery and hold the power switch down for at least 30 seconds.
2) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s).

If those don't do it, get back to me for more ideas.
Thanks!
