Acer TravelMate 6292 Wont Start Up To Windows

  • 0

Hello! Everytime I power on my laptop it won’t start to windows. All that’s happening is that after flashing the Acer logo the screen will turn off but the indication lights are up (power button and charger). Next thing I did was press F2 and then BIOS opens (that’s the only thing I can access). I tried pressing F8, Alt +F8 or even just Alt, nothing happens. How do I make my laptop work again? Or perhaps how can I factory restore it if I can’t even have it start up to windows? Help please.

  1. When you are in the BIOS screen you should be able to find your drives listed. That way you will see if the main drive is being recognised.
    Certainly clean the vents – a hardware issue is a good possibility.

  2. @riider:
    1. How would I know if the hard drive is properly recognized?
    I was thinking I might be able to make the laptop work if I factory reset it.

    2. Do you think the cooling vents are the ones responsible for it not to continue to windows? I haven’t blew dusts there ever.

    OK, what did you do while in the BIOS? Did you change any settings? Did you confirm that the hard drive is being properly recognized?

    “Or perhaps how can I factory restore it if I can’t even have it start up to windows?”

    Why would you want to attempt a factory reset when you have no idea what’s wrong? You need to troubleshoot. When’s the last time you blew the dust out of the cooling vents?
