Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

2 Answers

My computer recently blue-screened and rebooted, but is not presenting me with the '0xc0000428 Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file' boot error. I have tried following the on-screen instructions which said to press Enter then press F8, but when I do, it just takes me back to the error screen. I have tried to repair using the Windows boot disc and tried to roll back to a previous system restore point, neither of which have worked.

This could be an issue with hardware not a software issue. If you have tried repair and rollback to a restore point and it is not working. My opinion is to try a clean install of windows to see if this works. If it does not there is a USB device a tech can use to see if there is a failure during POST. If not there is a deeper issue that would not be able to see on your own and would need to be looked at by a professional.

Windows 8 will immediately boot to its typical lock screen. Sign into Windows 8 as you normally would - everything will look the same, except Windows will no longer demand driver signatures until you next reboot.
You can now install unsigned drivers as you would on previous versions of Windows. Windows will alert you if you try to install a driver that isn't properly signed, but you'll see an "install this driver software anyway" option you can choose.

Reboot When you're done installing the unsigned drivers, reboot your computer. Windows will keep using any unsigned drivers you've already loaded, even as it enforces signature requirements for new drivers.

I can't get Quark Xpress 9 to launch


Go to: C:\ProgramData\quark and delete all sub folders and files present there.

If that doesn't makes any difference in your case than you can run System File Checker (sfc).

You may try uninstalling Quark, rebooting the computer and re-install it.

If at all you don't get any help with that as well than you can try performing system restore.

How do I get out of safe mode on my computer?


Reboot. Typically, safe mode indicates a memory error as recently happened to your pc. It was an enhancement in XP to keep the system from blue screening.
Sometimes when rebooting XP will take you to monochrome screen (think old timey digital) and will ask if you want to boot with SAFE MODE or not. Choose no.
If this does not resolve your problem then I'd either reload Windows or take it to a certified technician.

Blue screen keeps coming up


The blue screen you are referring to usual appears when there is a software/hardware conflict.

If you have recently added any hardware to your computer , try removing it and rebooting the computer..if it was software you have recently installed , try booting the computer in "Safe Mode" ( tap the F8 key when the computer is first booting) and uninstall the program.......

If that does not work , we would need to do some more troubleshooting. First we would need the exact error code from the blue screen. That will help us narrow down exactly where the issue is coming from. In the picture below notice the red box's , the code in those box's is the code we need from yours.
