Preferred Solution: My brand new Acer D260 notebook doesn't turn on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This problem was originally posted in the Security section,

Gremlins or hardware problem?

on the basis it might be malware, Tech specs of the machine are listed at the beginning. The evolution of the problem shows throughout, but in the end,

the machine will not boot up, or start in safe mode, startup repair cannot find a problem. Details shown in the last post there.

What other things can I do ?

A:ACER D260 will not start

System specs are quite low for Windows 7 on a 64bit version.

Have you thought about upgrading the memory to 4GB if the system supports it? Look here on finding more memory: - DRAM, solid state drive (SSD) memory upgrades for Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq, Lenovo, Acer, ASUS

Hi my notebook has bow decided to not work after it stopped me using the internet saying it was at risk I then switched it off and when I tried to go back on it won't boot past the vodaphone boot screen and then goes on to status code 0xc00000e9 I could relie use some help as I am not very computer literate

A:my acer d260 wont boot

How did you switched off the machine? 0xc00000e9 could indicate a hard drive issue perhaps failure. Make sure your hard drive is detected in BIOS.

From another computer Then load the burned cd's into your computer.

Download Ubuntu Live CD ISO image and burn the ISO image to a cd using Imgburn (how to burn an ISO image using Imgburn). With the newly burned cd boot with it then select "Try Ubuntu" not "Install Ubuntu" access the Windows partition or what ever partition or hdd you which to backup files from by going to "Places". Backup the files to DVD, an external hard drive or thumb drive(s).

Downloading UBCD which is in my signature.Burn the ISO Image to a blank CD using Imgburn (How to burn a ISO Image using Imgburn) burn at lowest speed. With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The maker of your HDD perform a extended or long test.

Hi I have an oldish Acer D running windows starter SP that is a little slow it seems to me so I ran the Speccy program to see what RAM Memory I have installed and the analysis comes out with an answer that confuses me Under RAM Memory It says DDR so I take it that I have DDR chip installed but further down the page under heading of SPD under quot slot it reads that i have a DDR installed I m confused Am I m misreading the analysis as to what I have installed Can somebody that knows about these things please tell me what type of RAM I have installed by taking a look at the uploaded page please I DO know that I have a gb memory chip installed but that isn t what I want to know I would like to know what type DDR2 Acer or D260...DDR3 ? of DDR is installed in the machine Thanks and hope you may Acer D260...DDR3 or DDR2 ? be able to help

A:Acer D260...DDR3 or DDR2 ?

ps...just to explain a little more...I asked this question elsewhere and the answers I received told me I had 2gb RAM installed...I know this and know it is the maximum amount of RAM for the thinking is that if I have the DDR2 installed then I will install the DDR3 as it is possibly faster for the machine...the Acer is running a little slow it seems to me ad I`m trying to speed it up a little.

The Speccy results page says two different things for the DDR type...I would like to know which DDR type is in the machine please ? (see above post for uploaded Speccy page)

My Acer suddenly stopped working. It was working just fine yesterday and I also recently bought a new battery for it (about a month ago), but today it just won't turn on. Is my battery damaged? What's wrong?

A:Acer 3500 doesn't turn on!

We might need alittle more info than that. If you can get your hands on a multimeter, take that and test your a/c adapter to make sure it is putting out the proper amount of voltage. If it is, trying removing your battery and turning on the laptop with just the a/c adapter plugged in to it. Also try a different power outlet to plug into. Let us know more detail on anything else that could have possibly happened before.

Also, if all else fails, how old is the laptop? If it is within one year, I know the manufacturer will cover any failing parts (other than the a/c adapter and battery). You can either contact Acer yourself, or bring the laptop to a major retailer, and with proof of purchase (a receipt) they will send it to the manufacturer for you.

Hey everyone,I just bought a new notebook a few days ago and it is running very slow, it can't handle more than a few Google Chrome tabs open at a time. Was gonna take it back to the shops for a refund but I've already installed everything on here. 'System and Compressed Memory' is holding up between 300-600mb of memory, this is 8GB however my laptop is still runnning slow. I haven't installed much software on this and there is 2TB of storage so I have no idea how it's running so slow. The CPU varies between 10-25% however the memory is 60%+ even with just Chrome open. Most bizarre. I've checked that there's not any virus scans or downloads running. I'm running dual screens so not sure if that slows things down. Can someone help me please.

Welcome to SF!

The dump does not point to anything specifically. However, I see a few potential causes of BSODs.

First, your AMD Power Monitor drivers are outdated. They should be updated or removed.
AmdTools64.sys Mon Apr 28 13:03:39 2008 (4816036B)
One thing you should understand is that 3rd party anti-virus programs are well-known for causing BSODs in Windows 7 and Vista. ZoneAlarm is very bad that way, but I have also seen some crashes caused by Avira.

As a troubleshooting step, I would recommend removing both programs. Replace them with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Avira removal tool:

ZoneAlarm removal tool:

I have a digital ev500 notebook that overheats and shuts down. I searched on the internet and found a recall on some ac adapters that overheated. The one that I have is not one of the models listed but it does get hot as does the whole notebook. I have tried to load win 95 and 98 but each time I get a dll error message. I have three questions (1) is there a way to check the adapter and cord, (2) where do you think the excess heat is coming from,the cord heating up the notebook or the notebook heating the adapter and where would you check, and (3) and does any of this have anything do with the dll error messages.

I would suspect that the Power Supply Unit (PSU) is going south. If you have a spare one laying around, install it and see if the problem goes away.
You can buy a new,better PSU from Newegg for about $40.00. I have used a Thermaltake 430 watt in one of my machines for some time now and it works well.
You will have to check the size of your PSU to be sure a new one will fit into the eMachine.
Here's the page with that PSU on it. It's the last one on the list.

Hello jjoakim,Welcome to the HP Forums!I'm sorry to hear about the frustrating experience. Luckily, with your notebook being so new, it is probably still covered under warranty. If there are hardware issues, your manufacturer's warranty should cover any required servicing.The specs show that you should have received a 750GB hard drive. Can you confirm this? I have included the document 'How To Access Disk Management in Windows 8 & 8.1'. As the drive is most likely partitioned, you will want to use Disk Management to assess the full size.Do you get the error message regarding the hard drive is completely full, while you are working with your photos? The reason that I do ask, is it does sound like an out of control swap file could cause this error.If there is a problem with the hard drive, use this method 'Testing a Hard Disk from the BIOS' to test your hard drive. If for some reason it does come back with a failure, please let me know the exact failure code.I have also included a few standard troubleshooting documents for you to go through, to ensure all the basics have been done.'Computer Locks Up or Freezes in Windows 8''Improving System Performance without Adding Memory (Windows 8)''Windows 8 keeps slows down to 100% disk usage and hangs.'.Looking forward to working with you.

Alright, i know there may be a lot of these kinds of threads. I've done some searching and attempted any tries for a solution. Probably the only think i know is that the PSU is NOT dead. However, I'm not sure about the mobo because when everything is connected, a green light on the mobo is ON. I have made sure it's not getting grounded, though im still not quite sure. Triple checked that everything is connected correctly. Could the source of the problem be the CPU? It's brand new, made sure heat sink was correctly put on and everything. Feed back would be greatly appreciated. My specs are:

IS your memory dual channel (2x 512). One of the memory modules (if you have two, or just the one) could be dead and it is causing your computer not to turn on. If you have some more memory that you know works try it. The green light on the motherboard just means that you are getting power to the board.

IF the memory checks out start unplugging things to see if you can find where something is shorting it out. Unplug everything but the CPU fan and then turn it on. If nothing happens then the board is either dead or the CPU is dead. If it does turn on just start putting things in one at a time and turn it on each time till you find where the bad part is.

I just put together my first computer 6 months ago. It abruply shutdow in the middle of writing a paper for school. I couldn't turn it back on right away. after trying a few times, it turned on. All the fans are working even the fan on the power supply, the motherboards lights are on. My graphic card in on the motherboard. I think it might be my power supply because when I first put it together I didn't plug in the smaller power connection to the motherboard and the same thing is happening, black screen. It's like my computer isn't giving my monitor any feed. I will have more info when I get home. I can't get in to bios or safe mode.

I recently purchased a brand new HP notebook (HP-ay014dx) and it locks up on startup of the computer. The task manager shows 100% disk space during the times it locks-up.   Please note that this is a brand new laptop (literarlly right out of the box after a couple of restarts) not an upgrade of windows 10 from 8.1 (although I had this same problem with our last HP that we upgraded; which is why we bought the new laptop).  Before I return the laptop and swear off of HP, I wanted to see what HP recommends to fix the 100% disk issue?  Thanks -

I turned on my brand new HP Envy x360 Notebook last night. It asked me for a Microsoft id, password and pin. I did all that and entered it into my Envy. I then turned off the WIFI and turned off the notebook and went to bed. Today I turned on the notebook and the screen lit up nicely. The screen asked me to type in my Microsoft pin. I did and a mesage came up that says "Your device is offline. Sign in with the last password used on this device." I hit okay. Then the screen asks me for the pin again. It won't accept a password. It wants a numerical pin. It won't accept my pin or open the computer. What do I do?

Hello, Thank you for taking time to respond.  It appears that the box was already unchecked.  Good idea though as others may have this checked and can hopefully look into this solution.  I asked tech support in India to download drivers that could rectify the issue.  It appears to have worked. Thank you again.Madison.

purchased this product two months ago and we go to turn it on and states no hard drive?? Is there a fix for this? We just got this thing. 


The hard drive cable may have lost a secure connection-partially unplugged, which happens on occasion with transporting,etc. Unfortunately, on the newer models it is not a simple task of removing a panel on bottom to check the cable. I would suggest to call HP Support for service. >>Contact HP

Check the IDE cable for the CD-Rw drive(the flat gray one) is properly connected at both ends.
Down one side of the cable is either a red, purple, or dotted red line, the cable should be connected such that this edge is the closest edge to pin 1 - this is denoted by a small 1 by a pin on both the CD-Rw drive and the controller.

A:Please Help Please .My brand new 3 week Acer BSOD

This device is disabled:

Bluetooth USB Module USB\VID_0489&PID_E04E\6&226C637B&0&1 This device is disabled.

Is this deliberate? If so, why?
- enable the device
- update the drivers to the latest, Win8 compatible drivers
- re-disable it again (if so desired)

Try this:

Anti-Virus Removal:
Please do the following:
- download a free anti-virus for testing purposes: Free AntiVirus If using Windows 8, enable Windows Defender and the Windows Firewall instead.
- un-install the McAfee from your system (you can reinstall it, if so desired, when we're done troubleshooting)
- remove any remnants of McAfee using this free tool: How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee products using the Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR) (This link has changed a lot. If it doesn't work, search for McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool)
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free anti-virus (if using Win8, enable Windows Defender), then check to ensure that the Windows Firewall is turned on.
- Perform a full system scan to ensure that no malware has snuck onto your system.
- check to see if this fixes the BSOD's
NOTE: NEVER run more than 1 anti-virus, firewall, Internet Security/Security Center application at the same time.

If that doesn't stop things, then I'd suggest starting with these free diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics
If the hardware is faulty, take it back to the store where it was purchased and ask for a new one (depending on the store's return policy).

Please update these older drivers (don't do this unless the system passes all the hardware diagnostics). Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Brand New Acer 7720G and STOP C0000139 Blue Screen

Hi Everyone,

I am getting this error message and my laptop is in infinite loop of rebooting. this started happening after I installed Windows SP3 pack.

Stop: C0000139 {Entry Point Not Found}

The procedure entry point gdibitmapbitsize could not be located in the dynamic link library gdi32.dll

Till NOW, I to sort out the problem, I have performed the following steps:

1. Tried F8 to boot into the safe mode, unsuccessful, same error. Tried all the options of the F8 key other than normal boot, same error with infinite reboot loop problem.

2. I tried to format the c: drive and have tried to install the factory boot DVD Rom supplied by the Acer along with the laptop, no success, same error. Although the installation goes successful, yet the problem remains the same after the installation. I have done 3 factory restore of the laptop 3 times without any success. The original factory restore DVD came with Windows XP service Pack2 version 2002.

3. I even tried to restore the original gdi32.dll file in windows folder as suggested by the other forums and microsoft forum but of no use, the problem remains the same.

Now the laptop is with the operating system as shipped from by the ACER but the error remains the same.

The configuration of the laptop is:
Processor: Intel T7500 2.2 Ghz, 2.2 GHz Core 2 Duo
RAM: 4GB, 2 sticks of 2GB each (Kingston Brand)
Operating System: Windows XP Professional version 2002, SP2

Does you computer have more than 1 video port. It is possible that you are connecting to the wrong one.

Hello Guys,Yesterday I received the laptop and install all the drivers from .Also all the windows updates by now are done with the latest update just 3 hours ago taking 1 hour.But the laptop is very slow, thinks and slows when doing very simple things, like opening the start menu, typing in the question pole next to the start menu. The boot time is over 3 minutes for restart and start up. I want to believe that I have drivers for update or some that are not installed.Windows 10 x64.Intel Core I5-4210U 1.7to2.7GHzNVIDIA GeForce 920M 2GB8GB RAM1TB HDD  Thank you in advance!

Hello just got my cloudbook on Saturday and I am a photographer, I have been trying to upload my photos from my SD card but the SD card reader on the computer is not working. I went to the device manager and it said that it was working fine. Is there any tips or troubleshooting I should be aware of? Thanks =]

Go to Acer's Driver Website and find the driver there, and uninstall the old driver, but download the driver installer first, then try again, if problem persists, call Acer support.

First, CALM DOWN and look at my profile picture. Calm? Now post your message. If I helped, a Kudos would be great! Marking as solution will help others as well, thank you!

It seems the sensible thing to do is take it back to the seller and let them sort it while it's under warranty.

Hi I'm getting warning messages at startup and when I've logged into my windows account on my new laptop (literally just out of the box). It's apparently the internal battery, which also won't charge. I've read posts about downloading drivers but I've tried reinstalling these and nothing has changed. What do I do? I'm also having problems with the cursor drifting on its own. Cheers

Hi All,

I have been using my Acer Aspire v3-772G for three days now and have now 10 blue screens.

I can not say there is pattern how to reproduce it - it has been coming suddenly most of the times.
What I have tried so far:
-updated all drivers listed on manifacturer site
-updated BIOS
-run Microsoft memory check whole day long with no error (could not make memtest86 to boot from usb).
-uninstalled McAfee

I have attached the output from your utility.

Any help is highly appretiated.

A:Acer Aspire v3-772G - brand new laptop 10 BSOD for 3 days

Bluetooth is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Out of 10 memory dumps there were 7 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

The keyboard on my new Windows 10 Dell laptop stopped working completely so I tried shutting down. Windows seems to have shut down but the computer won't turn off (the keyboard backlights are still on and the fans are going). Pressing and holding down the power button (even for over a minute) does nothing, I can't pull the battery as it's inbuilt.
Is there anything I can do other than waiting for the battery to run itself out? And what if it doesn't turn on again after that?

if it shows the current IP address as 169.x.x.x then the issue is not finding

ALSO, if you see an IP address like 0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334

I purchased this notebook for my daughter last June for graduation.  It had problems once in a while with randomly turning off and not wanting to come back on.  We thought maybe it had gotten too hot or something.  If she left it for a while and then came back it would restart and work fine.  This time it turned off and we have been trying for two weeks to get it back on.  At first when you pushed the power button the red lights would blink.  Now nothing happens.  We have tried leaving it plugged in and still nothing.  She is a photographer and her notebook contains photos that we would really like to get back some how.  Are there any fixes for this problem?

Yesterday I cleaned my notebook by opening it up (as much as I could; there were some screws that I just couldn't reach) and using compressed air to clean out the dust. Apparently I did something wrong, because now it won't turn on at all! When I press the power button, I see the light come on, then I hear the HD whirring, then in about 1-2 seconds, the whirring stops, then the light goes off. What could I have done while cleaning it and how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance... I would have come back to thank you guys yesterday, but I screwed up my computer and couldn't get online!

A:Notebook won't turn on

Try taking out one of the memory sticks (I assume you have two installed) and then swap in the one you took out and take out the other one. Also, you might try resetting the bios--check your manual for how to do that.

Also--I am assuming its plugged in or you've got battery power because obviously if the battery is very low, it may not power up.

My G50-70 laptop (Machine type-model 59425450) won't turn on anymore. I last used it two days ago and my laptop worked perfectly fine, no updates or problems with shutting down the laptop. When I try to turn on the laptop without the charger plugged in, the power and charging dots both give a white light. When I plug the charger in, the power dot starts blinking (both lights are still white).I've tried the following steps that I saw in another thread: Unplug the ac adapter , remove the battery and just press the power button down for 15 seconds twice (power draining to remove internal statics and refresh power ).Place the battery in and plug the ac adapter and turn on. See if using the Novo key would allow you to turn on the pc . Neither of these things changed anything. Hopefully I've provided enough information for you to help me with my problem.

A:G50-70 notebook won't turn on

Hi Ricathan , 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Great that you tried power draining the pc. 
To continue further would require a tech handling and may void the warranty . 
Best if you check your warranty and call in support  for the repair . 
How was it if your try to connect it to any external monitors?
Any sounds heard like a Windows Welcome tune ?
If you press the caps and number lock on / off , would it show any led lights going on/off too ?
Update us how things would go .

Leave it powered on with the power supply disconnected until the battery completely discharges and then connect the power supply and attempt to boot it.  That has worked for others here.

I have an HP Pavillion dv6000 notebook for about 1 1/2 years now and it was working until this morning. I've checked the battery, it's 100% charged and works fine on another Pavillion notebook. The AC adapter seems to be alright because when it is plugged in, the blue lights are On. When pushing the power button the lights blink for a few seconds and its off again. I hear the fan, it seems to try to load but doesn't make it past 10 seconds. A blank screen of couse! We have tried it with or without the battery and reseated the RAM to see if it would fix it. No success, does anyone have an idea what might be wrong? My first thought is the power supply.

Through experience I've found that only official Microsoft Xbox controllers work well with PCs, any other brand, or no-brand for that matter, cause problems like this more often than not. I'd return it for a refund and purchase an official controller.

My brother recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 with Windows 7 & one of the USB 2.0 ports doesn't work. We've plugged into it all of our USB Drives & an IPod Touch & it doesn't respond to anything. Their are no errors in the Device Manager & scanning for hardware changes doesn't change anything. The Other USB 2.0 & the 2 USB 3.0 ports work just fine. Is their anything we can try before we call dell since it brand new so it has a warranty on it.

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 that get's really hot after using it for a while - 30 -45 minutes I'd say. You can feel the heat by touching the bottom left below the keyboard - or touching the bottom of the laptop which can be scolding hot.

Is there anyway to get this to cool down? I feel like this isn't normal.

A blast of canned compressed air (available from computer parts shops) up the fan exhause vent should help, by dislodging accumulated dust clogging the CPU fan.

My laptop was working perfect last night. I opened it this morning and the screen was black and the power button was flashing. Thinking it was dead I plugged it in and the power button turned off. Now the laptop won't turn on at all.The light shows its charging orange when plugged in. When I take the battery out the charging light turns white. I've tried the hard reset, removing the battery, everything the forums have said.The laptop is only 5 months old, but there are no HP sellers near by to help correct the issue.

I was working on my homework last night, I noticed the battery was getting low but kept typing anyways. I plugged my computer BEFORE it completely died on me, as I was typing, it shut down. I pressed the power button and nothing happened. I unplugged it and plugged it again and nothing. It has been working fine for the 3+ years that I've had it. Please help

Help, please! I have had my notebook since Christmas and hadn't had any issues until today. I watched Netflix last night and closed the top, as I usually do, before bed, and when I woke up it wouldn't turn on. I tried to leave it plugged in to the charger and trying a couple of hours later, but no luck. There hasn't been any damage, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Any help is much appreciated!!

That is not good. How/where did you buy it? Take it back if you can or we are going to have to help you make a warranty claim.
