My acer laptop froze yesterday so I shut it down, when turned back on - did the Fix screen - fan that and now it is just hung trying to open up. All I see is the Microsoft Corporation and the bar beneath it running. Had it on for 3 hours searching in that screen and my desktop never came up - any suggestions?

Try removing the battery from the rear end of the laptop.Leave it for 2 to 3 hrs and then try putting back the battery and turn it on. As soon as you turn on. Keep on tapping F2 key from the first row of the keyboard and go to Boot utlilty select and press Ok. It really works.

It could be software issues caused by a virus, try using a recovery disc that came with the laptop, if you have it. If the recovery process fails, then you are probably looking at a bad hard drive.

Hello sir, if your hard drive and video card is new for now, then maybe your memory card is not enough for your PC. And please try to check the processor because I encountered some problems like that.

Shutdown Issues


It could be overheating, either you need to replace the fan, or at least open it up and remove any dust (bunnies) that may have built up inside, if your fan is gummed up it won't spin which then causes computer to overheat.

Acer Aspire L100 overheating


You could try a new cpu fan and heatsink. They are normally inexpensive. if this does not work make sure all the case fans are working and check to see if your ram is overheating

Laptop wont turn on at all!


try sensing if your cpu fan is working, it is under the power switch side, you can see small exhaust slots, put your hand beside it and feel if some air is coming out when you turn on your pc.

When you turn you pc on and only orange light blinks, it means that no power was getting into it, it blinks because no electrical power is coming from your power adapter and the battery is drained. Check your power adapter cable, this is the very cause why your pc is shutting down. usually the wire from the adapter to the pc is faulty.

Over heating


I would suggest you to check the heatsink and cpu fan,
it could be dirty, if it is dirty, clean it and it should work fine.

To see heatsink and cpu fan, open 4 screw on the back of your laptop.
remove the cover, remove the fan screw (3), remove fan,
remove 4 screw on the cpu heatsink, remove the heatsink.

if your heatsink and fan are clean, it could be something else cause the shut down.
in this case you should send it for repair.

Blue Screen of Death, but not quite


hard drive is a main failure concern, check to ensure power supply is plugged in. sounds like you have a corrupted rgistry file-locate OS for that unit and hit ''repair'', should solve the problem.
