Having problems with your Acer Aspire T160 (AST160UA3400) PC Desktop ?

The desktop will not boot up. It's got power and sounds okay but

\015 I have an Acer Aspire AST690-UD214A.\015\012\015\012The desktop will not boot up. It powers up and sounds okay. Sometimes when I start it up the screen just shows the acer logo with ''Del: Enter Setup F12: Boot Menu'' at the bottom left side of the screen. It just stays like that. Other times when I start it up it brings up the ''Windows Error Recovery'' option screen first and then displays a blue screen with ''A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. . . . '' The error shown is not always the same. Other times the screen goes black after the ''Windows Error Recovery'' screen.\015\012HELP!!\015\012\015\012Is there anything that can be done or should I be shopping for a new computer?\015

Answers :

If you are able to get windows up you can restore it in a earlier time when it was working perfectly, this is if you have the 'restore point' on your pc. Other option if to use 'Last know good configuration'

The Last Known Good Configuration feature is a recovery option that you\015\012can use to start your computer by using the most recent settings that\015\012worked. The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores registry\015\012information and driver settings that were in effect the last time the\015\012computer started successfully.

To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Start your computer.
  2. \015\012
  3. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  4. \015\012
  5. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  6. \015\012
  7. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.c697747.gif

It sounds like your hard drive is or is going bad. What I would do is,if you have your computer start up disks, re-install it to your computer. You should do a back up to save your files before installing. (it'll allow you to have this option done before you install) Hope this helps any.
