    Do you have external memory devices plugged into your computer doing bootup such as external hard drives or Ipods?

Try runing the machine into safe mode.

Turn your computer off.

Wait 30 seconds.

Just before the Windows screen appears, press f8.

Select safe mode.

One the desktop is loaded up, restart the computer the normal way.

See if that fixes the problem.

If you hit <F12> key upon boot-up and the monitor displays a boot menu, then you probably have an issue with your XP software. Meaning that you may have to re-install XP (by the way, XP is no longer supported).

Acer aspire will boot up then i shut it down if i try to switch this back on straight away the acer screen appears but then goes blank and does not load

I am quite sure the operating system is corrupted. Just install fresh operating system.

But still you mention, that it is booting up but it is just blank screen or shut down.

Try to press F8 key once when start up boot to go to ADVANCE BOOTING OPTION. If you are lucky, it will load this option and choose LAST KNOW GOOD CONFIGURATION. or if you have the Operatins system installer CD, put inside the CDROM and repair the operating system.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Laptop reboots and intermittent blank screen


you need to reinstall your windows. you might could even try a system back up.. this should fix your problem.


Try starting up in safe mode, press F8 while its booting.

You may have to press F8 a few times.

Once there, select start in safe mode.

Assuming all goes well, click on start - all programmes - accessories - system restore.

Restore to a date prior to your problems.

Please post your feedback.

Screen goes blank when I start up game...

why don't you go with the lower resolution itself as it was before.  if you are not able to set the screen resoultion to lower what you can do is reset ur system. press F8 key continuesly untill you get advanced boot system. There you select "safe mode" and run the system. Once it is booted try changing the resolution.             OR After getting the Advanced boot system you can also try by selecting "Last Known good Config......" so that it sets the old screen resolution...!
