Brand new Acer Chromebook 15 resetting itself 1 Recommended Answer 9 Replies 7 Upvotes

My Chromebook seems to reset itself almost on a daily basis. Only bought it for Christmas. At least once a day I need to add all four members of the family, then remember which apps to install, update. etc. I am on the stable channel, not the developer channel and wanted to know if this behaviour was known. I am on an Acer Chromebook 15.

Dear Lord. I closed my chromebook to go for dinner and just came back to check my email and the damn thing had reset. It's not just once a day now...

I'm having similar issue with older Acer Chromebook - see here: https://support.google.com/chromebook/thread/934198?hl=en

I'm considering buying a new one. What model do you have?

Just adding to this - 15" Acer as well. Constantly powerwashing itself. Sometimes multiple times a day.

I too am experiencing this on an Acer 14 CB3-431.
I own three Chromebooks, including another CB3-431.
One of them I use rarely; when I do, all setting have been reverted back to the factory defaults.
This was purchased brand new in sealed box.

Do you think a powerwash would fix this?
