Start the computer in safe mode (tap F8 immediately after turning it on until you see the option of how to boot)

If it successfully boots into windows, you have an issue with either driver conflicts and/or viruses. If it still restarts itself, you most likely have a hardware issue (bad hard drive, motherboard, etc)

Sounds like the HAL.DLL problem that I have with my Aspire One.
Try booting off a genuine Windows XP disc and choosing the 'recovery console' option. At the command line, type 'CHKDSK C:' and press Enter. If you're lucky, that will do the trick.

Most likely the boot sector is corrupt.Try to boot by starting the Computer and hitting F8, or F12 you need to get to your start windows splash screen.Then try Start Windows from Last Known Good Configuration.If that don't work try Safe Mode.If none work you will need to recreate your .boot file, or try recovery fron CD.It gets complicated explaining how to rebuild your boot sector,If you have access to internet search "how to rebuild boot sector Windows XP".There are programs you can download and then load/run to rebuild boot.This has happened to me or someone I know and it is a pain to fix.You need some knowledge of how boot loads and how to repair.Try to get someone you know to help you.The problem was caused by the shut down.I think you ment XP can't Boot.Good Luck

Shutting down at setup blue screen


even thoough it isn't the original cd that came with the the lapop it should still install.

make sure you clean the lens of the dvd drive with a damp q-tip of water and then gently clean it with a dry q-tip. This will ensure that the laser of the drive is nice and clean and free of dust or lint.

Then make sure there is no smudges of dirt or dust of on either sides of the cd so that way there can't be no write errors due to this.

Now see if you can install windows xp. If you still can't install windows xp then its because the hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

Cannot start up the laptop


Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.
