ChromeOS has an auto-repair feature that can detect any issue with the operating system files or your Chromebook hardware and attempt to fix it on its own.
When the auto-repair process runs, you will see a message on your Chromebook saying “Your system is repairing itself. Please wait“.
Depending on the issue’s complexity, it might take up to 30 minutes to complete the process. When ChromeOS fixes the problem, you will see the welcome screen.
However, if the message doesn’t disappear after 30 minutes and your Acer Chromebook is stuck in a repair loop, follow these steps:
The first step is to restart your Chromebook. Here’s how to do that:
- Click on the clock in the taskbar (bottom right corner).
- Click on the Power icon to open the Power menu.
- Select Power off. This will shut down your Chromebook.
- Now, turn on your Chromebook again using the power button.
2. Hardware Reset
Restart didn’t work? Hardware reset your Chromebook. Don’t worry; you won’t lose any data on your Chromebook.
Here’s how to do that:
- Turn off your Chromebook.
- Wait for 1 minute.
- After 1 minute, press and hold the Power and Refresh buttons on the keyboard together until your Chromebook starts up.
3. Update ChromeOS
To update your Chromebook, follow these steps:
- Click on time at the bottom right corner of the taskbar and select Settings.
- Click on About ChromeOS.
- Click on Check for Updates.
If any new update is available, your Chromebook will install them.
