MY LAPTOP AFTER 2-3HR WORK SHUTS DOWN AND WONT TURN OFF.i HAVETO PRESS THE START BUTTON TO REBOOT-PRODUCT ACER F5


Just wanted to confirm a few things..
Did you do a hard power down by holding the power button down for 5 seconds or by just briefly pressing the power button (which would put the computer to Sleep).
I've found this laptop occasionally does not properly recover from Sleeping under Win8, that's why I ask.
Either way, do a hard power down by holding the power button for 5 seconds.
Unplug the laptop and find the battery disconnect pinhole switch underneath (indicated with a picture of a battery lifted up) and using a paperclip press and hold for 30 seconds.
Try powering on again, do you atleast get the Acer logo appearing when powering on?

I can't shutdown my laptop.


If you can't shut down normally (using windows), you can press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down. You can also remove the battery.
Make sure to save you work or anything that is open before you perform a hard shut down.

Whenever you have a system that shuts down like that, you can expect to have hard drive problems.

ry accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



If you have a HDMI cable, plug it up, if you have AV plug it in as well. If you have both settings on your TV, be sure to have them both inserted into the system. Also, make sure that you are switching your TV from HDMI to AV and vice versa.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 1-5


If none of this works:

ou will need to replace the HD.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

There could be so many things wrong with this unit..

If you are getting the light sequences, but at times it powers up, then you will have your hands full with troubleshooting.

the middle of your controller. (if applicable, try to use both HDMI and AV, switching from one input to another on the TV)

There will be a menu with 6 options.


If you do not see this menu with either HDMI or AV/Component cables, you will need to try replacing the hard drive..

When you need to power down the system when it freezes, hold the power button until it goes off. At times it can take up to 2 minutes, or more.


Has it ever been opened?


Look underneath the system, do you see a 'Warranty Seal' sticker?

If not, it has been opened and your problems will have to be solved by a technician who has experience.


Good luck with this unit.

Cannot start . the correct hard disk was not found


Hold your front power button down until it beeps the third time and shuts off. Then hold it down again it will beep two time and the third time will be two quick beeps, let go. It will ask you to plug in your controller with a USB cord and press the PS button. A menu will pop up. Try option 3 Restore File System. When it's done see if it boot up normally. If not do this again and try option 4 Rebuild Database. If that one doesn't work then you will need to try a different hard drive. Sometimes after you intall a different hard drive then put your old one back in it will work. If not you can just use the new hard drive. If you're not sure how to install another hard drive look it up on playstation.com. One of these should definitely fix your problem.

Cannot shut off & no display


The eMachines M5105 is notorious for failing to boot if left unplugged and powered off long enough for the battery to become mostly discharged. Plugging it in to AC power will cause the battery to start charging; and the hard disk drive to spin while the CPU cooling fan cycles on and off vigorously. THE UNIT WILL NOT BOOT UNTIL THE BATTERY IS NEAR FULLY CHARGED; then THE AC DISCONNECTED; and then THE (charged) BATTERY REMOVED AND RE-INSTALLED! Most units will boot after following the foregoing procedure.

Dualshock 3 sixaxis why does it always need to be plugged in


Once the controller is plugged in and connected to the console, hold down the PS button to select "turn off the system." Once the system has completed shutting down, unplug the controller and press the PS button. The console should turn on. If so, the controller will connect wirelessly. Unfortunately you'll have to do this with each controller but it works every time.

Orange light on instead of green light..also 3 and 4 number light up


When I first started repairing things a mentor said always unplug anything you are working on. I found this to be a number one rule. You just don't know what still has power even though it says it's off. I've made this mistake too by not checking.
Okay. So...
Hopefully the power supply is just shutting down due to a drain on it's voltage and will be okay. Take out whatever you tried to install. Try it again. Take out anything not necessary to boot your computer. You'll need the video card if not integrated. If you have a bootable floppy, Unplug the hard drive. See if you get to a screen where you can go into the bios setup mode. You also might want to write down where things go back. This is especially if doing this with little sleep. Let me know..'ask me.'
