Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

Windows XP will load - then wont go any more.

\015 I have an acer aspire one the 8.5 inch screen with no cd drive. When I turn it on - Windows XP will load, it will ask me for my password - I put it in and then it just goes to the backdrop page. No start page - no button - no icons, nothing. The mouse will move - and it just turns blue then white back and forth. Not sure what to do. Any suggestions. I cant get to the control panel, because I cant get to the start button. I am unable to run anything. I have gone to safe mode and all I get is a black screen with safe mode in each corner thats all. No icons etc. NOTHING! Really frustrated.\015

Hello,\015\012
\015\012When 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:\015\012
\015\012Reboot 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)\015\012
\015\012When the Acer logo shows, press ALT+F10.\015\012
\015\012Follow the instructions on screen to perform a recovery.  This will erase all your files, and reset the computer back to factory defaults.\015\012
\015\012If that still doesn't work, send it back to Acer.  You've got a dud.
Sounds like a nasty little virus that may have damaged the hard Drive

best thing to do is chalk it up as a loss and buy a new and bigger hard drive and start fresh, if not you could always try a windows repair and google the information you need so that you can get your files,pics and music back.
