Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

On shutting down my laptop it gave the message, "installing 1 of 1" do not turn off your computer. It did not turn off all night. I turned it off by using the on/off button then shut it down again (using the shut down option on the start menu). Again it did not shut down but gave the same message. I thought it might just be a big file that it was installing so left for work. On my return 11 hrs later I found it had turned itself off, so I thought it had worked. when I turned it on I had the message, "configuring stage 3 of 3 0% complete, do not turn off etc. My laptop then just started to shut itself down and reboot without actually configuering. What can I do?

When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

How to verify that the CMOS battery needs to replace


<p>The CMOS battery is named after the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor power. The CMOS has the current date and time functions for desktop and laptop computers. It allows the computer to automatically adjust the time, even on computers that are disconnected for long time. When a computer no longer has the date and time and forget it on every boot, the CMOS battery probably needs replacing. Some computers have messages when the battery is weak, while others just lose the current date and time after each shutdown.<br /> <p>Time & Date Errors<span> </span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p>1. Turn on the computer. Look in the task bar at the bottom right. Make sure the date and time is set correctly. Double-click the time and click the up or down arrow to switch to the correct time. Click on the arrow next to month to change the month. Click "OK" when finished.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Turn off the computer. Wait 3 to 5 minutes and start the machine.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Look on the taskbar to see if time was lost and said a strange date January 1, 2000. Replace the CMOS battery, if this is the case.<br /> <p><br /> <p>CMOS Error Message<br /> <p>1. Look for error messages like "CMOS checksum error", "CMOS Read Error" or "CMOS battery failure" when you start your computer. These errors are caused in the machines shut down for several months or when the CMOS must be replaced.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Let the computer on for 24 hours. Restart the computer and find the error.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Change the CMOS as the return error.<br />

When I turn on my computer it says "please do not power off or unplug your machine.Installing update 1 of 1" and it took for ever.


When you shut down the computer you will get this message when it has downloaded an update and depending upon the size of the update, this can take a long time to shut down. Just let it run and when the computer has finished the update it will shut down and switch off.

then you have no choice but to hold the power button till it goes off and pray windows starts up.

This is an automatic update from Microsoft and corruption can happen at any time.

My laptop worked fine on night then in the morning i started having problems. These are the problem that i am having my with my HP Pavillion 6910us Laptop. 1. My laptop comes on but cuts off after 5 to 6...


Hi
At some point if you can get the computer to stay up for a while, you should go into control panel and check your
POWER settings. The other thing you should try if you haven't already is to shut the computer off and pull out the battery. Then after a minute re-install the battery and see
if that helps.

Good Luck
Joe
ps: If I come up with any ideas I will post.

Computer turns itself on


if you can get into bios check and see if there is any type of alarm or auto on set up. If not or if its not that big of a deal just use the switch on the back of the power supply at night. Make sure you shut down your computer before switching this. It will definately keep the computer from turning on by itself.

ERROR MESSAGE READS...


There seems to be some corruption on the hard drive. You need to boot up the laptop from the Windows installation cd. Once "Setup" has started, you need to look for the option "Recovery Console". Once loaded you may get asked which installation you want to log onto. Type in 1 and press Enter. Then type the following: CHKDSK /P and press Enter. This will run a checkdisk and more than likely report that it has fixed some errors on the drive. Now type EXIT and press enter. The system should now reboot, remember to remove the Windows installation cd. If this fails, you may have to take the laptop to an authorised dealer.
