Howszit? and Welcome to GtoG


Sorry that your Acer is "start-up challenged".  First off, is this a notebook or a tower system?  If it's a notebook, try removing the battery before powering up, (batteries do lose capacity over the years and can stop a notebook from starting).  If it's a tower system, an unexpected shutdown maybe a bad PSU or hard drive problem.  What did the Acer factory actually do?  What is the op system and model number of your Acer?


I guess what we need is more info to help you better.  


Cheers, and please let us know more about your system...
