Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Why is my acer starting up repeatedly? It goes to the screen where i highlight the windows to start normally but it keeps shutting down and returning back to the same screen.


Answers :

Hello,
Try something else but start normally.
Start in safe mode (Press F8 right after boot) then reboot.
Start in the last good configuration.

If none works reinstall the system.
Change Boot sequence in BIOS to CD-HDD.
Insert Installation CD in CD-Rom drive
Choose install.
Choose C; partition
Choose Format (do not do a quick format). Any formatting will erase all on the Hard Drive.
Complete installation and reboot.

There is something else you could do before resorting to a reinstallation, and that is to use The Recover Console. You acces it when setup asks wether you want to reinstall, or repair. If you answer Repair you boot into the recovery console.

But before using it you should query Microsoft knowledge base about Recovery Console, and know exactly what should do.

Hope it helps.
