Having problems with your Acer Extensa 5420-5687 Notebook ?

My Extenza 5420 won't complete updating and start up.

\015 My Extenza 5420 was installing Windows updates and advised me not to shut down. The next day it was still installing updates, so I shut it down hoping the updates would instal later. When I start up the lap top will only go to the point where the updates are configuring and then shuts down again. It then tries to reboot itself but only goes to the same point and then keeps cycling over and over again. It won"t allow me to sign on and reach the desktop.\015
