Does it restart or turn off completely? If it's turning off completely after a short period of time, it's more than likely overheating. If you're not too tech savy, you might want to have it looked at by a professional.

Reset bios on acer aspire e380


Hi,

You can reset BIOS setting by CMOS jumper setting. Please follow the below steps: Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battery, remove it & then with the help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a screwdriver while turning ON). It will clear the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battery & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

If the computer still does not boot, then it needs repair.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

I turn on my pc and its blank screen on it but before i turned it on i removed fan to change it but all so removed the proccer to get to it and no its blank with no bios please help its all i have...


Try unplugging the cord & resetting the bios by moving jp1 for 15 secs. Them to be sure, remove the bios battery for another 10 secs. Put the battery back, plug it in & see if you get a screen. If you do, press delete to enter BIOS. Rest the time & date & anything else you messed with. If it shuts down again, you're overheating the cpu. Meaning, the fan/heatasink isn't seated all the way or you need to apply new grease/thermal paste. If the latter is required, get artic silver or better. Remove all old grease/paste with a rag. Then re assemble. It takes about 30-60 secs for the cpu to shut down with in adequate cooling.

I recently turned on my hp 6500 f desktop computer and it gave like a 15 sec beep and stops for 10 sec and keeps doing itcontiniously don't know muchabout computers need help


The motherboard is detecting some "fault":
* RAM not properly "seated" in its socket
* video-card not properly "seated" in its socket
* "bad" RAM (that is not working correctly)
* overheating (fans inside the case no longer working)

Take your computer to a qualified technician, at any computer-store, for professional diagnosis & repair.

turn of your computer before you do anything ....
unplug all the cables.. i mean everything..

connect only the basic cables. .such ... keyboard. mouse. monitor.. cpu and restart your computer..
this should work

My computer shuts down after 3 secs


Try to separate the power cord of your monitor from your system or maybe if your using UPS(uninterrupted power supply) directly plug the UPS to the wall outlet. either you can use pretty voltage regulator to the regulate the AC power.
if not solve the problem try to examine the your system power supply.
