Acer :: Aspire One ZG5 Shuts Off At Startup

Oct 5, 2009

Quick background:
My dad just returned from Afghanistan and is home for a few weeks before he heads back (by home I mean with my mother - i.e. I am not with them so I cannot get my hands on the computer).

He's been using his netbook (Acer Aspire One ZG5) while over there and brought it back with him. It's been working perfectly fine for the last 6 months while he was there, but today when he tried to turn it on to show some pictures to my mom it wouldn't.

The computer would start up fine and begin loading windows. Then it just dies - it just shuts itself off.

The next time, the computer gave them the option to turn it on in safe mode which they tried. Same problem.

They've tried several times and it won't start - it also fails at different times.

Sometimes it almost fully loads windows and other times it shuts off a lot sooner.

I made him open the BIOS which worked fine... for a few seconds and then randomly shut itself off again.

Acer Aspire 5741 :: Shuts Down After A Few Minutes

Nov 24, 2014

I have a problem with my laptop (Acer Aspire 5741G).It´s a couple of years old and the battery stopped working a year back and after that I need to use the power cable.Earlier the laptop got really hot sometimes and shut itself down.I have cleaned it inside (I took the laptop apart) and also changed to a SSD drive. 

After that it worked better for a while but now the same thing have happened again but there are some differences from earlier. IT´S WORSE. 

1. The laptop doesn´t get hot. It´s almost cold..... I downloaded a program to see the status of the computer and from it I could read from the sensor data that the temperature is between 30-40degC (CPU usage is as low as 0-4% if I just leave it). 
2. The fan starts directly when I start the computer and goes on 100% all the time (even if I don´t do anything). 
3. After 3-4 minutes the laptop shut itself down. Even if I go into the BIOS at start-up and just leave it. 
4. I have cleaned it again and everything but the same thing happens after I have mount it together again. 

What´s wrong? Can it be the power cable (AC adapter)? But why does the fan behave like this?

Acer Aspire V3 551g-8454 :: Laptop Shuts Off And Won't Turn Back On

Dec 25, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire v3-551g-8454 laptop. Lately it has been shutting itself off after anywhere from 5 to 24 hours of it being turned on. In the past I could simply turn it back on and resume from there. Now, when I try to turn it back on, the power button just flashes a few times and the laptop doesn't turn on. The laptop doesn't feel overly hot anywhere on it's surface.

Acer Aspire D255E :: Comes On - Displays Opening Screen Then Shuts Down In Few Seconds

Oct 6, 2014

I just bought an Acer Aspire D255E with a cracked display.  I tested it and it worked fine.  Replaced the display with a brand new one, and the result is that it comes on, displays the opening screen, briefly flashes what looks like the screen you get when you shut down abnormally,then powers down.  It will also power down in about the same time if I F2 into the BIOS.

Acer Aspire 5742g :: Overheating When Playing Games - Instantly Shuts Down

Feb 3, 2015

I have some problems with my 3 and an half year old laptop. When I play games on it, it get so warm that it instantly shuts down. Normally it's around 100 degrees but it sometimes goes up to 103 - 104. I also have an extra cooler, 200 x 200 x 20mm, 850 RPM which doesn't seem to work that much.  My computer usually turns off 2 -3 times a day and that is really annoying and I don't want to damage my computer.....

Acer Aspire V3-771 :: Laptop Running Win 8 Shuts Off When Gaming Or Viewing Some Videos?

Sep 14, 2014

My Aspire V3-771 is a little over a year old now. I don't know much about computers, but i do enjoy several pc games, and watch a lot of streaming videos. when doing so my computer almost always shuts itself off, even while running games that could hardly be called graphic intensive. I'd thought it might be an overheating issue? but i don't think that's the case. 

I've also noticed that, within the task manager, the disk will often jump to 100%.
 
Again, for months after i bought the machine, it worked perfectly fine. many of the programs that it used to run, now cause it to shut down without warning.

Acer Aspire V15 Nitro :: Running Game And FPS Gradually Drop Until Laptop Shuts Down From Overheating

Mar 9, 2015

I've bought a new laptop 1 week ago, and it's running smooth with 1 exception: Everytime I shut the computer down or save energy, it magically forgets it has fans to cool cpu and graphics card. When i try to run a game it will gradually drop fps until it shuts down from overheating. I tried to fully discharge it and disconnect it from the battery to identify the hardware and then set it to standard in the bios, then it works. But the moment I shut down the computer it is the same thing over again. I don't want to do said process everytime I start my laptop..

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Resolution Changes At Startup

Aug 3, 2009

Very often, when my 5920G boots, it changes from the native 1280x800 resolution to 1024x768. Because of that, the icons mess up and I have to change the resolution and then put the icons back at their place.

There is roughly 75% chance this will happen when my laptop boots.

Adding this with my other problems makes using this 5920G a frustrating experience!

This started happening months ago, when I reformated the laptop the problem had gone, and now it reappeared.

Acer :: Aspire 6930 Vista Wont Startup

Mar 21, 2009

At bootup I will get a black screen after the windows loading bar (at the bottom). It will stay a black screen as long as I reboot. I need to press the power button pressed down until it reboots then I do a Regular Windows Start. I've done the safe start so it can look for disk errors too. But I still get this black screen about 60% of every boot times.

What is the problem? Vista? or other?

Acer Aspire V3 471G :: Advanced Startup Option Missing

Mar 1, 2015

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. I don't know if it's because I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 but I used that previously when I need to go to safe mode. Suddenly it disappeared. I can only pick two options, "Continue to Windows 8.1" and "Turn off the PC".

Acer Aspire 7740G :: Beeping On Startup And Freezing Randomly?

Sep 19, 2014

My Acer 7740G has been acting strange lately, it makes a beeping noise of approximately 45 beeps (not exactly sure, because as they are quite quick) when it is restarted. When it is turned off and on everything is fine, the beeping is only when it is being restarted.
 
Also it freezes randomly no matter what games/programs/apps are running. For example it freezes while playing heavy game, and also while playing Minesweeper with nothing else running in the background. I had to reinstall Windows several times, but the freezing keeps occuring without bsod. Also when restart is needed during installation it beeps like that every time on startup.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 ... Lots Of Beeps On Startup And NTLDR Missing

Dec 21, 2008

My fathers notebook has been acting up for awhile. It beeps continuously at startup.

You would have to "F2" to the BIOS then exit the BIOS, then start up screen to come up again, beeps again repeat "F2" back to BIOS, but eventually XP would load. Unfortunately everything was sluggish, keyboard wouldnt work right. So in my limited computer knowledge I decided to reformat the notebook. I could not find any back up disk that came with the notebook so I created a back up disk from factory settings via the Acer eRecovery Management process. I have ran this recovery disk twice. Both times I have installed the recovery disk I get NTLDR missing as well as the beeps have not gone away. From some online research beeps mean computer is telling us something is wrong with the hardware. Number of beeps tells what specifically; unfortunately I cant find what continuous beeping means. NTLDR missing I found usually means that the computer is looking in the wrong place for the file.

I have no idea what I should do next to resolve the problem. Should I go out and buy an OME copy of XP Pro. Will friends XP Pro disks work as long as I use the XP Key found on the bottom of my laptop? How can i figure what hardware is causing the notebook to beep?

Ideally what I would like to achieve is a clean install with the most limited amount of Acer bloat ware installed. I am trying to find a list of what programs are needed and what programs are bloatware.

Acer Aspire 5552G :: Power Light But Only A Black Screen On Startup (boot Sector On HD)

Dec 5, 2014

I had exactly the same problem with my Acer Aspire 5552G with win7, I tried all things that was online e.g. New battery, Flashing bios, Fn + esc without battery when trying to start the computer and so on.
 
It started now and then and worked perfect but when I shut it down again it could take me up to 50 tries to get it started.
 
The problem was issues with the boot sector on the hard drive!
 
Finally I made an Win7 repair disc and started from.
 
I also checked for errors on the hard drive and it repaired some sectors before starting windows.
 
After that it works like when it was new. The computer was bought January 2011.

Acer :: 5315 Randomly Shuts Down

Jan 28, 2009

In the past week, my aspire 5315 running vista premium 32bit has been randomly shutting off for what seems like no apparent reason. There's no warning of the shut down, it just turns off. It does this whether connected to the internet or not, and there isn't any one program that's the common denominator. Also, it doesn't boot up successfully every time (maybe 1 out of every 4 attempts). Instead, it just stays on a black screen with a single white blinking horizontal dash (the character two spaces to the left of the backspace button + shift). The computer had started doing this initially when I installed the latest update through Windows Update. I used System Restore and the problem seemed to be fixed. Then the problem started again a couple days later while watching "Lost" on ABC.COM. I ran Windows Defender and it didn't come up with anything.

I've tried running Kaspersky a few times, but the computer shuts down well before the scan is finished (even in safe mode). Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Sony :: The Vaio Startup Assistant Loads On Startup

Oct 8, 2009

When I first loaded up my Vaio the Startup Assistant booted by itself and I unchecked the box to stop booting on startup. After the while the Startup Assistant started booting up by itself even though the box is still unchecked. I thought by recovering to factory settings and unchecking the box would fix it but it has started booting up again.

how I can get rid of the Vaio software?
