Hi

you could try to press F8 on startup eg press power key then press F8 holding down for a few seconds and hopefully it will take you into some repair options

i would try the last known good configuration option to start with
then windows will restart and try to repair it back to when it was good

and if that dont work try the safe mode/system restore

hope you get it sorted

many thanks

Your BIOS is hosed. This could mean that your BIOS chip has simply failed, or that an attempt to
update BIOS failed, or that a pernicious virus has erased part of your BIOS EPROM chip.
Fix: replace BIOS chip - its a physical EPROM chip on the motherboard.
Why this is nearly impossible for the experienced home electronics buff: modern PC boards,
especially those used in laptops/notebooks/pad computers, where space is tight, are
wave-soldered, and virtually impossible to work on - for even the experienced hobbyist.
Your only hope: the BIOS chip is SOCKETED, and can therefore be unplugged (using, of
course, proper anti-static techniques), and replaced. But IC chips sockets are virtually unknown
in laptop/notebook/pad/cell phone construction.

My acer 5650 laptop shows phoenix trustedCore (tm) NB Copyright 1985-2004 Phoenix technologies Ltd Message


Sounds about right..........
If it goes no futher, try booting into safe mode by pressing f8, if not , put in your windows disc and attempt a REPAIR INSTALATION.

Google it, this is not the first option to repair, its like a full install but you loose no files

Power off automatically after 10 - 15 min


Your hard disk has crashed. Take it in to a computer store (Microcenter, Fry's, TigerDirect, or Best Buy) to get a new one. The data on your computer's hard drive may not be able to be saved.

Acer aspire one - its died!!!


If it was just the hard drive, I would expect the video to come on and say something like "no boot device."
However, since you went through the steps here and see absolutely no video (even none on an external monitor), I would suspect a motherboard failure.
Be sure that when you hooked up an external monitor that you pushed the Fn key and the appropriate special function key (maybe F7) that switches between the laptop and external monitor. If you have done that (pushed the combination several times to switch displays), then you can be pretty certain your video card (if a separate card) may be bad.
I'm not really sure if this machine has a separate video card. The specs say it's a ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. This leads me to believe it may be a separate card.
If it's just the card that went bad, you can replace it. Otherwise, the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Good luck. You can do that, but if you're not confident, you best take the machine to a repair shop.

Laptop will not fully start


This could be a device failure. However, try flashing the bios. Do this by going to Acer's support site and creating a bootable disc with the bios or updated bios, if there is any, on it. Then run this in your machine. You will have to use a different computer to do this, apparently. If this doesn't fix the problem, then you will need to take it in and have a tech run down the device that failed.

Acer Aspire 3100 Boot errors and intermittent lock


Try flashing the BIOS to the latest version.

http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acerdrivers/bin/drivers.html?CFID=1078534&CFTOKEN=55079713

Also, take a can of compressed air and blow out the dust and debris from the CPU air intake and exhaust vents (Go back and forth several time to try and dislodge compacted dust in the heatsink vents)

If the BIOS flash doesn't resolve then you most likely have a NIC failure. Since the NIC is integrated you can either replace the motherboard or get a PCMCIA or USB NIC to use and disable the integrated one in the BIOS (If possible)
