Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

Power light comes on but nothing happens on start up

\015 My girlfriend shut the notebook down and it installed updates (running on xp) and now it wont turn on. You press the power button and it lights green but nothing happens. Doesnt sound like much is going on as if the hard disk isnt being booted up? any help would be appreciated\015

Answers :

Press F8 during the boot sequence and select the last known good configuration, this should negate the updates and allow you to boot sucessfully.

Then apply the updates via the windows update website don't use autoupdates for this very reason use this reg tweak HERE to disable autoupdates for future reference
