Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

My acer aspire 5741 has crashed. I brought it around six months ago and was working fine up until a couple of days ago where it froze so I had to turn it on and off at the power button. It gives me an option to start windows 7 normally or fix errors when I turn it on now both of which lead to a sky blue screensaver with a dove and olive branch in the background and nothing happens from there no matter how long I wait what should I do to fix this?

    Thank you for your help, unfortunately it's currently impossible to get into safe mode as it goes to the dove screensaver again and eventually tries to repair disc but it was trying to repair itself for over 24 hours and nothing happened from there is there anything else I can do to fix this problem?

    How do I restore to factory settings? And should the disk repair really be taking the long?

Welcome to Fixya

Sounds like windows system already hangs up. Try to boot up the computer to safe mode. Turn off the computer and turn it back on. Keep on tapping F8 once you press the power button ON. Select SAFE MODE once you reached to boot selection. Go to system restore once you gain access to windows safe mode. Click start menu then all programs. Click accesories then click system tools. Click on system restore then select a date where you remember you computer is working fine. Restore the computer to the slected date and observe the result.

Please reply to this email for any update.

Thank you for using Fixya!

    HI. Since safe mode is inaccessible, we only have two options now. One is use the windows disk and launch the windows repair or restore the computer back to factory settings.

    disk repair normally should be 1 to 20 mins depends on the speed of the computer. Since it is not responding at you end. There is a huge possibility that windows OS is alraedy corrupted. Please follow procedure below on how to restore the computer to factory settings. Please take note that all data will be deleted in doing the procedure. It will be like the first time you got the computer. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop. Press Alt F10 on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window. Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration. Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop.

My 5741 is about 6 months old and works fine but in the last couple of days I have noticed it getting hotter - and now I see why; the cooling fan has stopped working. Is there anything I can do other than...

There is not much you can do about the fan except replace it yourself or return it for repair. However, if you don't do one or the other, you could end up with a thermal event that could render the netbook unusable. Hope this helps
