Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

After installing a game on my acer extansa 5235, my laptop then switched itself off. Then when starting up my laptop, it comes up with the 'start windows normally' or 'launch startup repair (recommended). If I select either, it then gives me the screen where I would usually sign in; however it only gives me the option to sign in with an 'other' account which is not accessable at all and my usual user does not appear.

Hi There.

1. Power off the laptop
2. Power on and immediately after pushing the power button hit the F8 key continually until a DOS Window opens allowing you to boot to Safe Mode.
3. Using the Up and Down arrows, select Safe Mode with Networking
4. When you are at your desktop, do the following.
a. Start Button
b. All Programs
c. Accessories
d. System Restore

Once at System Restore, choose a time to restore to before you installed the game. Restore the computer to that time and it should return to normal.

It probably goes without saying, but I would NOT install that game again.

Acer Extensa 5235 wil not power on

The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

Windows xp sp3 driver problems on an acer aspire

You should not NEED to install the chipset driver unless there are items in device manager such as (SMBUS controller) that show up with a yellow exclamation point or show up as unknown. Acer is (unfortunately) notorious for putting bluetooth switches and software on laptops that don't have have bluetooth cards from the manufacturer - these laptops are just "bluetooth ready" meaning you will need to install a bluetooth card for it to work.
