Question about AcerPower 1000 (AP1000EA380M) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer not starting up properly... now it's not starting up at all!

I'm thinking this is a hopeless cause, but you never know. My Acer has been acting up for about a month. While I was working on it, it would make the noise as it I had shut it down, even though I was working! If I tapped the PC, I'd hear something start back up again, or something like that. Then, a few days later, it started to not startup properly. It would seem like it was booting, but there was no beep, and a screen would come on after the "Verifying VMI Pool data..." and then it would try to boot from the CD, and then nothing. Usually if I tapped the PC again, and restarted, it would be fine. However, now it won't even start!! Is this a fixable problem, and will there be a way to get some of my files off the computer? I've backed up most of my stuff, but there is still some stuff on there. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure your right about it being near hopeless because it sounds like your hard drive is physically failing but you could try and recover some of the stuff you need onto a flash drive if you can get it to start up even for just a few minutes. Otherwise you can just take it to someplace like the geek squad where it'll cost you but if it's possible they'll be able to get your stuff off.

Sorry and best of luck

Failure to boot Acer Travelmate 243xc Ms2138


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Just upgraded memory ram on acer 5100 now having startup trouble. Will startup then shuts down...tried memory diagnostic, status memory ok.


If you just upgraded memory and are having problems, the system memory is more than likely causing the problem. Try either taking out the new memory and leaving in the old (if you added a memory stick), or placing the old memory back in the computer and try starting up. Your memory could be either incompatible or it could not be seated properly.

So, if you replaced all of your memory in the upgrade, place the old memory back in and try to start up. If you added memory, then just remove the new piece you put in and try to start with only one card. I don't know how much memory you have.

Try this and let me know what happens.

I have a squeaking sound that I think is coming from the ac compressor. I noticed it stoped when I put on belt dressing and the pulley got wet. I heard the same sound coming from other monteros as well,...


once the belt become loose it slips and its friction surfaces become damaged .. even if its then tightened properly it may still slip .. an old damaged belt should be replaced and tensioned properly ... its common for older type belts to slip and make noise .. it is not as common in later cars since they often have automatic belt tension and improved belts .. any slipping is a sign of some other problem ... one frequently seen problem on some cars is a pulley that is spring loaded to keep the belt properly tightened .. the pivot on the pulley freezes up and no longer maintains proper tension .. those pulleys can sometimes be re lubed but often are hopelessly frozen and need replaced ... also other pulleys and the alternator bearings can start to make a squeaking noise when the sealed bearings lose there lube .. you can put a drop of oil on each bearing to see if one quiets the sound ..

Windows does not shutdown properly, asks me if i want to restart in safe mode?


It never hurts to start in safe mode. While in safe mode, some things will not be available to you. Be aware that there is a reason your computer is telling you to start in safe mode. Something happened, hardware or software related, that caused a problem. Windows allows you to start in safe mode to correct problems. Not knowing what the problem was, I might suggest starting in safe mode, then go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore. Try to restore your computer to a few days ago when it was working properly. Then restart, and hopefully it will work.

hope this helps.

Does the acer aspire 5735-6694 have built in bluetooth


Hi,

Yes it does, and you can download the driver here. Before you do, there are two things you should check. 1st see if the device is already installed, and whether the system thinks it is functioning properly, or if it is disabled. To do this: 1.) Click Start > Right Click My Computer > click properties > Click the Hardware tab (at the top) > click Device Manger. Scroll down to Bluetooth, and double click it. 2.) On the general tab, it will say whether the device appears to be working properly or if it is not or disabled. If it isn't listed or not working properly, reinstalling it from that link may help.

If that doesn't resolve it, my 2nd suggestion is click Start > Control Panel, Bluetooth, and see if it is disabled.

Please let me know if I can be of further assitance.

Thanks
