Acer Aspire One power up problems? Try this.
Apparently my little Acer Aspire One machine got hung in some kind of weird power cycle today, perhaps a hibernation gone all wrong, the end result was my machine would boot up, start just fine and then reboot 10-20 seconds after reaching the Windows XP log-in screen.
After rebooting a half dozens times, I was getting pretty worried and beginning to sweat, thinking my machine was toast. So I searched Acer's website and tried the following sequence of actions;
- unplug the battery and AC power
- hold the power button down for 20 seconds
- plug the battery back in
Voilà! It worked!
Hope this helps save someone else from a heart attack.
