    Hi @Murugan ;

    Please perform a power reset by removing the battery pack. Slide the battery release latch to release the battery. Pull the battery from the battery bay.
    Also, reset the BIOS:
    Shut down your PC. Press the power button and immediately press F2 to enter into BIOS setup
    Press F9 (or the load defaults button shown on the BIOS screen) to reset your BIOS
    Press Esc or F10 and select “save and Exit” press Enter and allow your system to restart then check if it boot into windows.

    Have tried everything reset to defaults, changing boot priorities, atleast 5 times it will reboot, i have to force turn off and turn on again to get windows. Once I get into Windows there is no issue. 
  • It is possible that the rtc battery needs to be replaced! You can also try to connect the notebook with the lithium battery disconnected from the notebook to see if the problem remains!

    Yes tried removing battery, CMOS battery. But now sometimes getting normal startup,  and more times, reboot as earlier. If possible pls share the bios to update 
  • First check your current bios version by going to powershell as administrator and then wmic bios get smbiosbiosversion

    There is version 1.06 on this site: https://www.acer.com/ac/pt/BR/content/support-product/3674?b=1
    However it is a risky procedure and you may condemn your notebook to become a brick! I do not take any responsibility for any damage!
    To upgrade, unzip the file and go to the windows folder and click on the file to run! Disconnect the peripherals from the usb ports, disable the wifi, charge the battery and leave the notebook connected to power!

  • You can check if this can be ram problem! If possible replace the slot and see if the problem remains! Also try to replace with another that has the same characteristics!
