    Acer Aspire one win 7 starter restarting randomly

    hi guys

    i was wondering if you could help me with my new netbook.....

    i have an Acer aspire one netbook
    it has win 7 starter installed

    and yes i know that Acer has a bad rep when it comes to computers, but i wanted a netbook so bad i had no choice.

    here is the problem i am having

    i am not sure if it is just the fact that it is an acer or if it is a bug
    it keeps restarting randomly

    Try to do the below:
    1. First of all right-click on the 'Computer' and then select 'Properties'.
    2. After that you need to select 'Advanced System Settings'
    3. Now you can click on the 'Settings' button under 'Start Up and Recovery'
    4. And then in the 'System Failure' area, untick the 'automatically restart'.

    It wont stop the restarting normally, but instead you will get blue screen error that you can post here. Based on the error message we can diagnose the problem.

    BSOD creates minidump file in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump. You can trace the error by opening the dump file or tracing the code by simple search over the web. However, you will have to enable "Write Debugging Information" for creating the minidump file during the BSOD.

    If you haven't then go in to Control Panel > System > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery > Write debugging Information > set the dropdown box to "Small memory Dump 64Kb" and uncheck "Automatically Restart" box and save the settings.

    i should mention that i don't always get blue screen errors most of the timeit just freezes and reboots and always says windows has recovered from an unknown error
    should windows look for a solution online yes no i usually click yes. but obviously it dosen't fix the problem..

    bccode; 124
    bcp1; 00000000
    bcp2;85f354dc

    Are you having a Windows 7 DVD that you can use to try to do a repair on your computer? Also, you could try to uninstall the video drivers from your computer and then check if the issue persist. After that install the updated version of the graphics driver. You can also try to run sfc /scannow in the command prompt and see if that helps.

    idea Re: Acer Aspire one win 7 starter restarting randomly

    it is a netbook so no dvd/cd drive i've had the problem since i got it for christmas but i can see if acer or intel have provided an updated driver


    btw seems to happen less if i connect it to a external monitor but still happens also if i only use an external monitor it almost never seems to happen so it might just be the internal monitor so i'll try it for a week or so only using an external monitor and then get back to you guys then

    until then see u

    i will post the results when i am back posting in a week

    Well, if there is not CD/DVD drive in the netbook, then you can also try to make a Bootable USB Key and install Windows. For more information, check the suggestions given in this thread - http://forums.techarena.in/guides-tutorials/1235045.htm

    I will get back to u guys on the sys image that they provided with the system

    until then i bow down to the techarenians knowledge

    Re: Acer Aspire one win 7 starter restarting randomly

    The error code that you have mention definately sounds like a driver problem and therefore you should try to uninstall all the old drivers and then reinstall the latest drivers for the hardware components that you have. You can also try to follow various method given on this website to troubleshoot the issues - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958233

    Re: Acer Aspire one win 7 starter restarting randomly

    oh ok

    i just wanted to mention that it seems to have stabalized but then again i have mostly used a external monitor

    but even when i use the normal monitor it seems to last longer

    but i do believe if it is a driver error/problem it might be a graphics card or network lan adapter driver
