Acer Aspire 5742-7653 :: Stuck In Reboot Loop

Feb 18, 2015

My Acer 5742-7653 is stuck in reboot loop.  It starts to load Windows 7, and then the screen goes black, and it beeps a bit, and theen starts over again.  The F2 button no longer gets me into Setup.  And the F12 doesn't work.  I can't get into SafeMode or Setup.  When the problem first began, I could sometimes get into Setup and boot from an external HD which as a diskImage. 
I used to be able to remove battery, and remove HDD and RAM, and then it would boot up from the external HD.  To get through a busy period at work we set the power option so the computer would never shut off.  But this is creating problems with all the Firefox, Adobe and Windows updates that want to run.
This is running on Windows 7, 64bit.
How can I determine if this is a problem with the HDD, or the RAM?  or Motherboard? What else could it be?

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 Stuck In Boot Loop

Sep 30, 2013

Recently I purchased a u410 and it has been running great for a few weeks but this morning instead of waking up from hibernation like normal it seems to be stuck in a loop of displaying the lenovo logo then a blank screen with a few seconds on each. This has been running continuously for hours while I try to run down battery in an attempt to reset. I have no bios access during the loop and it will not boot to any usb media. I am now wondering what I should do since it already has data migrated from my old machine and don't exactly want to start over. Is there anything that can be done other than returning it or sending it to lenovo support?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y410P Stuck In (Preparing Automatic Repair) Boot Loop

Jul 19, 2013

Unfortunately I woke up this morning to my Y410P stuck with the Lenovo logo and text saying "Preparing Automatic Repair". After a few moments it will say "Diagnosing your PC " and then "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete." Then after a few seconds it restarts and everything happens again.

Dell XPS 17 :: Stuck In Startup Repair Loop After Windows Critical Update

Mar 18, 2012

I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop that seems to be stuck in the Startup Repair Loop, and I have tried everything to get out of the startup repair mode, but nothing seems to be working. I have tried F8, Safe Mode, System Restore (to two different dates), and the command prompt, but everything happened to no avail. I even did the Diagnostics test (long version), and that came up with nothing. I purchased the laptop back in October of 2010, and it has Windows 7. The laptop went into this Startup repair loop about a day after it did a Windows "Critical" update. One of the programs that the update tried to install onto my computer was Google Chrome (which it, according to the laptop, failed to install properly). It makes me wonder if the update uninstalled a driver, or turned a driver bad.

Two errors that I repeatedly get are "Corruptfile" and "Autofailover". I truly hope that this is something that can be fixed, and I hope that I will not have to restore my laptop back to it's factory settings.

Acer :: Aspire 9500 Powers Off (possibly Overheats) Before Windows Loads

Mar 28, 2009

Acer Aspire 9504.

First of all it runs in Windows completely rock solid. I have ran stress utilities for over 24 hours, and the system is completely stable.

My problem is that it is very unstable before windows loads. For example, if I simply leave it in the BIOS setup for 5 minutes the computer will just power off. It is also quite hot underneath. This occurs also if I boot from DOS (or other e.g. XP recovery disk) boot disk to run some utilities - the system will run for 5 minutes or so, and then just power off. The time that I get before it powers off decreases if I immediately switch it on again, suggesting an overheating issue. I did not have this problem when I first got the laptop 3 years ago.

This problem is really annoying as I want to run some low-level utilities to repartition my hard disk and also possibly reinstall windows, but this problem is preventing that.

Any ideas? Perhaps some strange software that I installed? ACPI config? Memory issue? BIOS issue? Computer is hot in several areas under where the CPU / TV tuner / graphics / memory are located .

My system spec:
- Pentium M 760 2GHz
- Ati X700 256MB graphics
- 2GB crucial RAM (2 x 1 GB DDR2 533 CL4) (upgraded from 1GB over a year ago and fully tested to be working)
- Newest BIOS from Acer installed

From system information:

OS NameMicrosoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
OS ManufacturerMicrosoft Corporation................................

Acer Aspire 5732z :: Integrated Mic Isn't Working?

Feb 22, 2015

I guess the first thing is, do I even have an integrated mic? My other Acer did, so I figured this one did being as it has the webcam. If it does, why is it not working? No, this is not a new laptop still under warranty. Previous owner is unreachable to ask. I have redownloaded realtek driver and still all it comes up with when I check out the devices is that the mic is uplugged? I am soooo confused. I LOVE my Acer, but am not feeling the love back at the moment.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Won't Boot - Stuck At Screen Starting Windows

Mar 6, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 that doesn't boot successfully. It gets to the screen indicating "Starting WIndows" and then just sits there. I tried safe booting but when it should be displaying windows files that are loading, the screen just stays blank. I tried selecting "Repair" boot but the system just blinks and returns to the window that asks me to select Repair or Normal Boot. (If I select Normal Boot, it gets to "Starting Windows" and that's it.

I checked out the hard drive externally and it appears the hardware is functioning normally. I successfully booted with Hiren's Boot CD. I would like to attempt a RECOVERY but can't get beyond the Repair screen.

Since Dell doesn't provide an OS disk with the computer that would allow me to reinstall Windows 7...

Acer :: Erecovery Loads On Boot Everytime

Apr 23, 2009

I installed ubuntu on my laptop through a flash drive. I then loaded up Super Grub from a CD to remove ubuntu and grub to restore Windows boot menu because I preferred XP, I followed the instructions from Super Grub menu, and I was sent directly to the Acer erecovery. I decided to restart my laptop after that, reset everything in the bios, including boot order, but now my laptop keeps booting up acer erecovery, even after going through the process.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 - Boot Options Are Hidden From External Monitor Until Windows Loads

Apr 22, 2014

I have a training environment using W530 laptops that are enclosed in an area in front of the desks. It is not pratical to get to the computer as it is hidden away and therefore I need to be able to use the dvi cabled external monitor for bios setup, boot order, etc.
Right now the boot options are hidden from the external monitor until windows loads. Then the external monitor becomes active. Any way to bypass the laptop monitor altogether?

Mar 12, 2014

So I've had this laptop for a while and it has been working well for a few months but last time when I went to turn it on, all my files were deleted.
All my programs were still there, but images, documents and other files are all gone.

HP 17T-j100 Lockups :: Laptop Stuck In Continuous Reset Loop

Dec 28, 2014

My laptop has been messed up ever since I updated it.It all started when I got a notification to update to windows 8.1. It was all good until the next day when I started it up and it would not pick up any Internet connection even though I knew my router was working as I could get an Internet connection on my mobile. I went to the network and sharing center and it said there that it was disabled so I right clicked on it to enable it. After I clicked it, my laptop went to a blue screen and came up with the following message something like this: we've encountered a problem, we're gathering some error info and we will restart your device.

So, it restarted and I tried to re enable the network again and the same thing happened. After about 5 tries the restart thing kept happening. I didn't know what to do so I thought to just restore the laptop. I did that and now it's just in this continuous blue screen restart loop. I can't even get to the log in Window, it just keeps going to the blue Window and then restarting.This is a new laptop, not even 6 months old and it was fine until I was told to update. I'm thinking of just taking it into the repair Centre as I have warranty and I feel as if I can't fix this problem myself as I can't even get into my actual desktop.

Acer Aspire V3 771-6605 :: Stuck At Lock Screen After Installing Touch Pad Driver

Sep 4, 2014

I just got a Acer Aspire V3 771-6605 with Windows 8.1.  My touch pad wouldn't scroll or respond to any finger gestures, so I tried installing the ELANTECH and Synaptics touch pad drivers from the acer support site for my laptop.  However, after I restarted the computer I keep getting stuck at the screen right before where you put in your password (the lock screen?).  The only keys that seem to do anything are the function keys.

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Upgraded To Windows 8.1 - Breaking Up Of Screen With Loads Of Horizontal Lines Running Across It

Dec 15, 2014

I inadvertently upgraded to Windows 8.1 which I had been trying to avoid doing and don't know how it happened as I had continually knocked back prompts to upgrade.  I originally did upgrade to 8.1 last year and had such major graphics issues I eventually restored factory settings to get back to Windows 8 which solved all the issues.  Now the same problems are happening i.e. breaking up of the screen with loads of horizontal lines running across it.  

I downloaded all the updated drivers I could from the Dell site but the graphics driver and video driver would not work and I kept getting the message that the laptop was not compatible with the downloads.  It is a Dell Inspiron 3520 and the recommended drivers just will not install. I don't want to have to go through all the hassle of restoring factory settings again.  I am sure the problem is with these 2 drivers mainly the NDJN4 video driver.

Acer :: D250 No Display Until Windows Loads

May 14, 2010

Acer aspire one d250
1 gig of ram, 160GB Hard Drive
intel gma 945 graphics.
windows xp home.

On start up as soon as you first press the power button, there is no display no life at all on the laptop's screen. No POST screen or Windows loading screen. Now after windows have loaded the display appears back on the laptop.

If i hooked up an external monitor and do a cold start i can see everything working the way it should on the external monitor and then as the windows have finished loaded the
image switches back to the laptop screen.

It seems like the bios is using the vga out as the primary video until widows drivers have take over and switch back to the laptops screen. The same happens when the external monitor is hooked up and when it isn't.

There is no option in the bios to change the default screen.

I tried everything i could think of.

FN+F5 key dose nothing until windows have loaded

CTRL + ALT + F1 or F3 (alternative keys for changing the display)

Did a full system recovery(format and reinstalled windows)

Flashed and updated the Bios, From 1.25 to 1.27

removed and reinstalled ram, battery, to draining complete power from the laptop.

2 display drivers show up. I tried removing and disabling them one at a time.

Still no change.

No power, no lights, no display, no nothing on the laptops screen until windows have loaded. After windows have loaded everything works perfect, except when resuming from hibernation, the screen that says resuming from hibernation do not display because the bios is using the vga out as the mains.

After a few seconds the screen lights up and continues to resume as it should.

The netbook has not been dropped one or had any damage what so ever.

Dell Inspiron 14Z 5423 :: Will Not Boot - Stuck On Logo Screen

Jan 20, 2013

Been working on my laptop all weekend and took an hour break came back and when the laptop tried to boot up got stuck on the dell screen. The screen it is stuck on has the dell emblem in the middle and has inspiron under that and a progress bar that is completely empty. In the bottom left corner is has F2 Setup and below that has F12 Boot Options.

I have tried to turn it on and press F2 all that happens is the F2 becomes highlighted but nothing seems to happen. I can do the same for the F12. I have tried booting it while plugged into wall and when it's not doesn't seem to change anything. I have left it on for a while now and every few minutes the screen goes blank and makes a few clicking noises and a few of the lights on the top corner of bottom part of laptop flash. It then just gets stuck in the same frozen screen.

The laptop has a weeks worth of very important data I need on it....

Dell XPS 12 :: Unable To Boot Any OS - Stuck At Windows 8 Loading Logo

Mar 7, 2014

Dell XPS 12 Laptop. 

Symptoms: Unable to load windows 8, unable to load windows repair, Unable to load windows 8 installer DVD, unable to boot into Linux, Unable to load Linux live CDs or USB sticks, unable to even use an MSdos boot USB. 

Problem just appeared one day, one month out of my 1 year warranty so I began troubleshooting myself. After replacing the SSD, Motherboard, and unplugging every single cable, even disassembling the display and disconnecting the Windows button, Webcam, and touchscreen cables. Still I Could not get any OS to boot. On a whim I powered on the laptop them promptly disconnected the daughter board and sure enough my OS booted right away. Upon further inspection I learned that the Auto-rotate or rotate lock button had become stuck/damaged due to a fall or hard bump. I ripped off the button and ordered a new daughter board online and all is well now.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 Cannot Boot Windows - Preparing Automatic Repair Stuck

Dec 2, 2014

I'm very stuck with my Y580, and I'll start by saying that I purchased the laptop about 1.5 years ago, and it came with Windows 8 installed. I didn't like Windows 8 so much, so I decided that I would get Win7. I also decided that I'd put it on an mSATA to speed things up. After doing so, I just formatted the boot partition on the older drive to use for storage. But I kept the recovery partition on there. Everything seemed to work fine until I was recently informed that I should update the BIOS. I followed all of the instructions from Lenovo in updating to the version 8.00, something like 89WW in the file name. Then recently I noticed my temps were realllly hot when gaming... and I don't play graphically demanding games. I monitored my temps and found out that my CPU (i73630QM) was running over 90°c when playing games like LoL, Dishonored, RIFT, Darksiders, and a few others, all on lower settings.

I did some googling about temps and a lot of people were saying that BIOS is often a culprit for high temps. Maybe you've already put two and two together, but it took me until this point to discover that the BIOS I had updated to is a Win8 BIOS, and I'm using Win7. I figured, this is probably a big part of my issue (and even if it's not going to solve the heat issue, I'd still like to have all my ducks in a row and have all my hardware/software/firmware compatible.

As we all very well know from the few years of tampering with these Y580s, the BIOS can't simply just be rolled back. But I figured there had to be a way. After googling around for some time, I ended up trying a few different things; editing the Config file for the earlier version of the Bios (which just resulted in another error and locked up the keyboard and mouse), I tried booting the BIOS image from a USB, but to no avail (I tried both booting from USB and also a force BIOS update, using the fn+B method, which I realize I may be doing incorrectly, as I am not entirely sure what I should name the ROM file... I can't boot windows to use ANDYSTOOL, so I named a bunch of different ROM files with different names that have worked for other people) ... so on and so forth...

The last thing I've tried was Restoring the BIOS to factory settings (within the BIOS) and now the computer will not boot windows. The Lenovo screen Posts, and Windows starts to load, freezes a moment, Blue Screens for a second, then reboots, saying that there is an issue with either Hardware or software, and gives me he option to either boot windows normally (which just results in the same thing again) or to run an automatic repair. I tried the automatic repair and it just sits on the "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen, and will do so for hours with no progress.

Acer Aspire E1-570 :: Blank Screen After Boot

Feb 13, 2015

2 days ago I had trouble accessing the internet on my E1-570. Windows Explorer kept throwing up a fault and restoring the page. Eventually I loaded Safari and then Firefox and resolved to sort the problem with Windows Explorer some time in the future. This may be unrelated to what happened the next night. Started the E1 and got the usual "Acer, Explore beyond limits" screen and spinning dots, then got the login screen - input password then return. Spinning dots for much longer than usual then blank screen. I can see the cursor arrow so the screen itself must be functioning. Lights on the front are working - AC, battery and HDD. I have had the machine 14 months and it is used exclusively at home so has not been roughly treated.
