    Laptop not starting for hours after pressing on button

    Hey there anyone whose willing to help.

    But i have a Acer Aspire Laptop i bought 2 years ago that just recently started acting up and don't want to boot up for sometimes up to several hours.

    It should be known that not long before this started i opened the laptop up myself and cleaned it out. During the processes of putting it back together it's possible that i used less than the recommended amount of thermal grease.

    Thank you before hand for your help

    What do you mean by several hours?

    If you opened it and was not careful then and when you put it together. Anything could have happened.

    Run the free HWMointor HWMONITOR | Softwares | CPUID to see what the CPU temps are. If it's getting hot this app will tell you. Usually if it a heat issue the computer will just shut off on you during use. Not usually an issue starting. You may need to run Chckdsk.

    Open a Command Prompt (right click on it and choose run as Administrator) then type in "Chkdsk C: /f /r" (without the quotes) this will scan the drive and fix any errors.

    After that at the same Command Prompt. Run "SFC /Scannow " this will scan the windows files and let you know if there is problem.
    Report back what you find.
