Having problems with your Acer Power FH PC Desktop ?

Acer Power FH will not boot Windows XP Pro

\015 Computer goes to windows icon screen and then shuts down and begins to reboot again and the process repeats again and again. I can boot the computer in the safe mode (F8) Have tried the following remedies:\015\0121) Re install recovery disk and then using the ACER back up, installed all files and programs. Computer ran fine, turned off computer, next day would not boot. 2) Was told by Tech that sometimes there are conflicts with wire less internet. Removed wireless connections and software from computer and connected to internet with cable - did not solve problem.\015\0123) Re installed with recovery disk and re-installed all programs individually and data files. Worked for about 1 week and then had the same booting problem.\015\012\015\012Note - I have two identical PH computers. I used them in my business office for 1 1/2 years without any problems. I moved both computers to my home office. After about 2 weeks at the home office both computers crashed at exactly the same time and had the exact same booting problems. Both computers have been checked for viruses and none have been detected. The only thing that changed at my home office was the computers were conected by wireless (att 2wire modum). The wireless has been removed as noted in number 2 above. The only other thing that has changed has been the physical location of the computers. Our house is about 8 years old and we have not experienced in AC power problems with any outlets, devices, or lights. Both computers are on inexpensive power strips and on the same AC circuit. Have not experienced any problems with the kid's HP - on a different AC circuit.\015\012\015\012The fact that both computers crashed at exactly the same time with the exact same problem seems to rule out hardware problems. With the recovery disk and re-installing program files, this should have eliminated most if not all of corrupting or conflicting files in the operating system. Perhaps some of the Windows XP Pro updates are not compatible with this Acer Operating System??? Power Spikes?? One computer is now working, but I don't trust it.\015\012\015\012I am open to any Ideas - Thank you\015

Answers :

Try reinstalling windows
Well your explanation was clear but your should've not ruled out the hardware issue. if both computer suffered the same problem at the same time the problem could be within the Desktop itself. I have experienced the same problem with my HP when I move to my new house after 5 years. What happend is that during transportation the vibration lossened up the parts inside your computer. So what I did was I reseated all the parts inside the desktop and reinstalled Windows XP. Till now I have never had any problems yet.
