I'm sorry to hear that. It could be a couple of things.Are you getting any beeps? I would first unplug the power cord. Next I would take the cover off to expose the motherboard and computer internals. Not sure what it takes for an acer. Usually there are screws in the back side. By taking them out side cover should come off and expose internals. Check to see if inside is really dusty. If it is, try blowing out with compressed air. I use the kind you buy at office supply. At this point try to take ram stick off and back on. Try powering back on hopefully this did the trick. If not do you have your original discs, I would try booting up with recovery disc and try repairing pc this way. It should step you through it.
Hope this helps

    Se if you can get into safe mode by rebooting your pc and continuously tapping F8

    then select " LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION"

    That should reinstate your laptop to functional


    Then you need to go into SafeMode again, and run an Antivirus/Spyware program.
    Sounds like you might have a virus.

    You're going to probably have to use your os disk to reinstall xp or find files if this doesn't work.


    hope this helps

I cannot start up my acer aspire 584g32bn


Safe Mode and System Restore can fix startup issues in an Acer Aspire One, but if the computer won't even load the boot screen, the problem could be related to the basic input/output system (BIOS).
The Acer Aspire One 110 and 150 are two models that can have BIOS-related problems that prevent the computer from booting.
You can upgrade the BIOS through a USB flash drive to repair this issue.
If you are able boot past the startup screen, but can't sign in to Windows, you can use Windows Advanced Boot Options to bypass startup problems.

Go to the Acer website (see Below).
http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
Click "Support," then select "Download" from the menu on the left.
Select "Netbook" as the product family.
Click "Aspire One" as the product line. Select "AOA110" or "AOA150" as the product model.


Click the "BIOS" tab.
Click the download button and save the file to the desktop.


Go to the desktop when the download completes.
Double-click the file to open it.


Drag-and-drop the folder to the desktop.
Double-click the folder to open its contents in Windows Explorer.


Double-click the "BIOS_Acer_3310_A_AOA110 & AOA150" folder.
Double-click the "Dos_Flash" folder.


Insert a blank USB flash drive into a USB slot.
Drag-and-drop the "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" files to the flash drive.


Right-click the "3310.fd" file. Click "Rename."
Change the file name to "zg5ia32.fd" and press "Enter."


Connect the AC adapter to the power jack.
Hold down "Fn" and "Esc" with one hand, then press the power button with the other.


Release the "Fn" and "Esc" keys when the power indicator light comes on.
Wait at least seven minutes for the system to fix the BIOS and repair the Acer Aspire One startup issues.
The computer will restart automatically when the process is complete.

Other Models

Turn on the computer.
Press "F8" before the Windows logo appears to access the Windows Advanced Boot Options menu.


Scroll to Last-Known Good Configuration.
Press "Enter" to load Windows.
If the OS fails to start up, hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the computer.


Press the power button to turn the Acer Aspire One back on. Press "F8," then select "Safe Mode" from the options.


Log in to Safe Mode. Click "Start," "All Programs," "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Click "Next."


Select the last working restore point from the options. Click "Next."
Click "Finish" to run System Restore and recover the Acer Aspire One to a previous state.

How can i reboot my acer laptop


Press Start(ORB at bottom left for vista/w7) and if you're on windows 7/vista, there should be a list button on the bottom right side of the start menu saying "Shutdown"(windows 7) and "Sleep"(Vista), click the list and click Reboot.

On XP you need to click the Shutdown button and before you click shutdown instead click Reboot(Green button If i recall correctly).

Are you holding down the button too long? If you hold down the power button on any laptop, it'll shut down after a few seconds

Acer Aspire one will not turn on.


If this laptop is one month old why even mess with it. Take it back to the manufacturer or store where you got it and get it fixed on warranty. Never fix something you're not sure about when you can get a professional to fix it for free.

Acer Aspire One


We have two that went "Dead" like that too. Acer knows all about the problem of losing video. They have a BIOS update that they will send you on a flash drive. Give them a call, have your computer handy to give them numbers and in 3 o 4 days you will e up and running with your Acer One. They are a great little computer. By the way, you will not loose Windows 7 which I am using on my desktop right now. It's better than Vista.

Previous user apparently password protected Windows.


Well first off you can use the restore feature and it will only reinstall crucial windows files it won't mess with software that was already installed.

There are password recovery programs out there you would have to search for one and install the program onto a disc and boot of it (just follow the instructions)

Window resume loader


Windows Vista doesn't shut down the machine by default when you press the power button. Additionally, if you look at the bottom of the start menu you'll see this:

6fe475d.jpg

The button on the left, highlighted here in bronze, does NOT turn the machine off in Windows - it suspends it, which requires power. When the battery runs down, the power goes out and you get this message the next time you start up.

Some laptops also indicate suspend mode by flashing the power light.

Happily, if you click on the little right facing arrow a menu pops up, one of the options of which is "Shut down" and this will bring Windows down properly and fully.

You can also change the function of the power switch (which defaults to suspend, NOT shut down) by going into the power options from Control Panel:

Selecting one of the above options will allow you to set the power button and closing the lid to turn the machine off fully, not suspend it.
