My computer continues to shut-down for no apparent reason while booting up. It will get to bios then abruptly shutdown. Please Help!!


Maybe something is defective from the factory? Can you bring it back and exchange it for another? Is it a desktop or a laptop? If it's a desktop, maybe remove a side panel and aim a small fan at the inside. Do you know how to start up your computer in safe mode? Maybe try starting it in safe mode and see if you can do a system restore, do you know what that is and how to do it? Google will explain it to you, but I'd suggest those steps.

I restored T5048, but now it shuts down and restarts non stop ?


Shuts down and restarts the boot process automatically continuously. Try turning it off, then hit the power button and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE Mode. Scroll down and see if you see an option to Cancel or Stop automatic restart on system failure. If you do click that and try rebooting your machine. It should tell you what exactly is the problem so you can read it without it rebooting all the time.

If it's that you need a CMOS battery you're in luck. Just turn the computer off, remove the case, sit the computer on it's side, get a flashlight and look inside for a battery about the size of a nickel. Normally the size of the battery is CR2032 which can be purchased at Walmart or you local grocery or drug store for $5.00. Just use a small flat head screw driver to remove the old battery and pop in a new one.

My daughters desk top computer will boot up when I press f1 and then it shuts down and brings me back to a black screen and tells me to hit f1 and reboots. When the windows does come up I dont have time to...


Remove the battery from the motherboard and check that it has 3volts or above. if not then replace it. That will cure your pressing F1 to continue all the time. As for the restarts then you will need to turn off Automatically restart in the control panel,system section. To do this you will need to boot into safe mode. Tap the F8 while booting until you get a black screen with white type on it. Its first option is to boot into safe mode. hit enter on this screen and windows will start with no drivers loaded. the screen will appear very large. navigate to the control panel as mentioned above and untick "automatically restart". Ok that and reboot normally. now you will most probably get a blue screen of death. note the first stop code. it will appear something like 0x000000??. Its the last two digits that are the clue to why this is happening. Google the stop code and you will now know why this is happening and do something to stop the problem.

Acer laptop wont start up.


You have corrupted files on your system, either from a hard drive beginning to go bad or from just a bad update, use your recovery console, either available during start up or by using the windows cd to boot your computer and have it run a recovery, you will have to re-apply some of your service packs afterwards. Another option in the recovery console is to use your system save points, if you have the recovery console installed then use it to restore your compter to a day before the update.
