It looks like Windows is trying to install. Is that what you expected when you restarted after the screen went back and it shut down? or did you expect Windows to 'load up' as normal?
How old is this Acer?
Older versions 'may' have a recovery partition that you access through particular F key combination at boot up. The manual will tell you what keys they are.
But newer ones likely suggested you create your own Recovery Disks as soon as you started the system for the first time. If that's the case here then there is little you can do except call Acer and ask for a set of recovery disks.
While using my Acer Aspire 5251-1513 the screen went black and it shut down. When I turned it back on, it goes from the Acer screen, to starting windows (windows 7), to "setup is starting services". After about 30 seconds a message window opens stating:
"The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation can not proceed. To install windows click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation"
After clicking OK, the computer restarts and goes through the same process, or freezes. I've used F8 at the Acer screen to attempt starting in safe mode with the same result. I did not receive any discs at all with this purchase, Windows 7 had been pre-loaded.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as a student I can not afford to purchase a new computer at this time, yet it is essential to my success.
