Re: My easy note laptop will not start up!
This can happen if some newly installed hardware behaves unexpectedly or one of ur existing has developed a problem.To confirm just run system restore.Follwo the following procedure:
then click on launch system restore and select a restore point.If this fixes the problem fine.
Other wise download "driverscan"(search it in google)and run it.It will show you if there is any compatibility issues or problems.

it could be win32 virus which has wiped one of your files that starts pc you might have to do a full windows xp reinstall check youtube to find out how to install windows xp.....if you downloaded something recently you can do a system restore through safe mode.... restart the pc when the first screen comes up press F8 a few times it will then ask you to start in safe mode and a few other options try selecting the option (boot from last known good configuration)
if that doesnt work then resart the pc again then press F8 again few times then safe mode options will come up again then select safe mode hit enter key then let the files load it will look different when it starts
press start then all programmes then select accessories then select system tools then select system restore
dont use the default time to restore select different restore time pick a date on the next screen click on it then click next the pc will restore the pc to when it was working properly of that date you select..it will restart itself if that doesnt work you might have to a full system recovery install windows i mean again you will find videos on youtube showing you how to install your version of windows warning it will delete all files on your pc and then reinstall windows it will be like a new pc....bonnell
Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
See if you can boot in safe mode. Turn on computer and repeatedly press F5, select the safe mode option if you can get in then the problem might be you have too many start up programs trying to load when windows start. Find out which ones you do not need and prevent them from starting up when you log on.
When you get to that empty screen, try hitting CTRL+ALT+DELETE. If you can get task manager to come up, try going to file, run, and typing "C:\windows\explorer.exe". If that doesn't work perform the following steps:
Reboot the computer. (Hold the power button for more than 4 seconds to turn it off, wait a few seconds, then hit the power button again)
When the Acer logo shows, press ALT+F10.
Follow the instructions on screen to perform a recovery. This will erase all your files, and reset the computer back to factory defaults.
If that still doesn't work, send it back to Acer. You've got a dud.
what i can help this...
you select safe mode and remove video driver and reboot your laptop...if it inside the windows normally,try to remove some unused toolbar in add and remove programs..and check also for virus scan..and reboot computer..
check the video cable
and see if it;s properly seated.
run the laptop with something that uses memory. if the video chip it going to show signs of problems, it will be more prominent when the laptop gets hot.
most cases laptop motherboards have integrated video cards and cannot be replaced.
