I would try getting the power supply checked first. Also if the fans are working. If fans aren't working the pc will shut down as a default safety feature.
It could be a corrupt mbr (master boot record). If the fans are working try placing your pc on some books to allow complete air flow and point a house fan on it. See if it stays on longer. Then you'll know if its an overheating issue which it sounds like it. But doesn't mean it is! Let me know if you don't make any progress on this if you want to and we go from there.

I just bought and acer aspire 1641 anyway i turn on the computer and the fan turns to fast moniter just blanks.


This is a problem with the power supply. Bring the computer back and exchange it immediately- trying to fix it will result in your warranty being "voided" or cancelled.

When you get your replacement PC, make sure you follow the "quick start" guide.

I have acer aspire 3000. My screen goes blank with flashing hyphen in left upper corner after bios screen. I cannot reboot because it goes to blank screen.


It means that the HDD is not getting detected on the computer.
Try resetting BIOS.
If that doesnt help, check whether your HDD is bad.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

You may have to delete cookies on your browser.
Since MSN Explorer piggy backs on IE, you can then delete cookies on IE. Just open both MSN and IE at the same time. Then on IE, click on Tools> Internet Options> Delete Files under Temporary Internet Files. You'll get a prompt to Delete Cookies as well.

Or, if you're login as an administrator on your PC, you can just go to C:\Documents and Settings\User\Cookies, then delete all cookies.
