Hi Srimotu,

Follow these methods.

Method 1: Try starting it in last known good configuration.

Method 2: Try to start in safe mode.

If you are able to boot into safe mode, try a clean boot.

Method 3: Disconnect external devices such as printer, scanner, etc. and try to start.

Also disable automatic restart in the event of system failure

  • Built in mic on acer aspire one does not

    The microphone on my acer aspire one netbook does not work. I am running windows XP on the netbook and had this problem once before some time back, but can't remember what the person tech told me to uninstall that does the job all of a sudden again. I use also the audio if it helps Realtek HD. I tried several times to update the drivers and reinstall the software from the acer site, it does not work... any suggestions?


    Thank you for your message.

    I see that you are facing problems with the built-in microphone.

    Let's not worry! I'm here to help.

    Quick questions:

    1. what exactly happens when you use the built-in microphone? You receive an error message?

    2. What is the status of the device in Device Manager?

    Check out this link to learn more about device manager:

    By using Device Manager

    Let's try the following and check:

    Method 1:

    We will adjust the volume of your microphone and check if it is set as default.

    (a) right click on the "speaker" icon located on the bottom right corner the screen of the taskbar.

    (b) click on sounds, click on the recording tab.

    (c) click Microphone, and then click Properties. (Note to make sure that this work appears under Microphone. If the job does not appear, click on Microphoneand then click set as default.)

    (d) in the Properties of the Microphone dialog box, click the custom tab.

    (e) select or clear the check box Amp Microphone .

    (f) click the levels tab.

    (g) set the slider for the volume to the desired level, and then click OK.

    (h) click on OK to close the sound dialog box.

    Method 2:

    I would also say that you update the drivers for your Microphone and looking for the issue.

  • My Acer Aspire R14 does not start with the cord of the charger plugged in with the battery connected to

    A few weeks ago, my laptop Acer Aspire R14 went totally blank. When I unplugged the power cord, it started right to the top, but at the moment where I plugged the power cord back inside would be closed. The battery dies quickly in this way, because it would not charge. I removed the battery then it started upward with the power cord. I thought it must be the battery, so I installed a new battery. which is not to change the problem.

    So, I ordered a new motherboard and after a few weeks, I received it today, installed, and I have always the same thing. It works well with the power cord plugged in until the battery is disconnected. But at the time wherever I connect the battery, everything stops, not to be revived unless I disconnect the battery.

    I need help! What could be the problem?

    Glad I could help.

    2. run the partition manager and select go delet.

    3 - Select the partition that has 100 MB space and delete

    4. then select the larger partition and delete.

    5 - turn off the power to the laptop

    6 - Turn on the laptop

    7. when the acer page appears, press ALT + F10 ONLY once.

  • Acer Aspire 5515 does not start

    Well, I have a 5515 Acer Aspire running Windows Vista Home Basic Edition. It hasent been working lately (VISTA USUALLY START!). I have no idea what my BIOS password. In any case, I have a never used Windows Vista Ultimate not copy to level. Can I pop in my computer and without starting Vista, (re) install vista? PLEASE HELP ME! I'VE BEEN WITHOUT A COMPUTER FOR A MONTH! I HAD TO WRITE THIS ON MY IPHONE!

    If you have problems with BIOS password, you will need to contact Acer at the link above.


    You can't get in your version of Vista has to do an upgrade, you need a license Ultimate FULL Vista to do a clean install, not an ultimate upgrade license.

    BUT you cannot change boot order if you have BIOS password problems.
    Contact Acer is the solution.

    See you soon.

  • Dell XPS 2710 all-in-One will not start, the totally blank screen

    Hello. This is my first post on the forums and I hope someone can help me.

    The Dell XPS 2710 all-in-one I bought for my 10 year old 15 months ago (Yes, that means that the guarantee is expired) will not start. No no post, no beeps, nothing. Just a brief spark of light on the screen, no words, nothing. The machine gets occasional use, and there is nothing to indicate what could have caused the problem. I have not upgraded the BIOS recently, is not as if it was a bad BIOS update, or whatever it is. I tried to hit the F1, F2, F12 keys delete during startup. No results.

    The video works. I know because I can connect my laptop to the HDMI-in port and I can see the desktop of my laptop very well. So the question is NOT the video. My son uses this machine for occasional movies and homework in his room. I want to fix the computer, if I can. I am handy with computers and built several machines from the outset in the past.

    I believe that the most likely scenario is that the motherboard has went wrong; There are several posts around the internet about motherboards 2710 AIO being unreliable. I saw an ad on the forums of Dell from a guy who said Dell Tech Support replaced its motherboard 2710 five times. I see that some of these motherboards are selling on eBay for around $200. I'm toying with the idea of getting a. I watched the service manual for the 2710 and I'm pretty confident that I could replace the Board of Directors.

    Someone had experience with permutation on their motherboard on a 2710 AIO? Or someone has any ideas on what could be the problem with my son's computer? I appreciate all the advice/help anyone could offer.

    OK, I have removed all the RAM from the motherboard (there were two sticks) and unplug the connector on the SATA hard drive. Then I turned on the machine and got two beeps very strong, but still no video on the screen indicating any form of activity of the POST. The sound signals have been first sounds I've ever heard during the procedure of boot on this machine. I put the RAM back in and re-connected the SATA cable. The way he has been, no video, no post, no beeps. I'm a bit at a loss for what I've decided, this means that the motherboard works technically and that another device on the machine is at the origin of the problem? Have I reason to assume that if I hear two beeps, then I should have the certainty that the motherboard was bad? Given that this a sound signal, the solution becomes cloudy, I guess. I can't help but feel that somehow the BIOS on the computer is damaged. Don't quite know how that could happen, however, because I have not updated the BIOS in over a year. I don't remember what BIOS version I have, but he had been working well for a year with no problems. Thanks for any other help/suggestions you can provide.

  • Equium A100-338 does not start the OS Vista - update Bios?

    Hi guys,.

    My laptop (a few months) decided to die and was told by tech support that it might be because of the BIOS. The problem is that the computer does not start the operating system (Vista) and the update of the BIOS available only is the version of windows. Are there any other mirror to get the traditional update or even a way to convert a the update the BIOS from Windows startup disk?

    Thank you


    If you can see that one version of BIOS on Toshiba page then only one version exists and is available!

    > The problem is that the computer does not start the Vista operating system
    I don t think that BIOS could be responsible for this problem.

    You must first provide more info on this problem!
