Install an operating system


You need to change boot options in BIOS. Press required F key during boot. Look on the screen since Function keys vary with systems. In boot options make optical drive (CD\DVD) 1st. Save and reboot. You should get "Press any key to boot from CD". Note: Some systems have an ad-hoc boot option during startup. Thus eliminating the need for BIOS change.

BLUE SCREEN


Which Operating System? You'll need a system disk to run the chkdsk command for a Dos Prompt (black screen with white lettering).

Insert the Operating System Disk in the cd drive, reboot from the operating system disk and select the option to Repair. It will search for your operating system and once found you will select it by entering a 1 for windows. Then it will ask for the Administrator's password which in most cases is blank so just press enter. When you see the Dos Prompt simply enter the command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's normal. Let it run to completion then reboot the machine.

If you still have issues, then you'll need to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install which preserves your music, pictures, documents, data and videos.

Windows XP Repair Install:
Insert the Operating System Disc in the cd drive and boot from it.
When the Options come up select the Option to Install Windows (Don't select Repair). It will start loading windows files and at some point it will ask you to accept the License Agreement by hitting F8. On the next screen after hitting F8 it will begin searching your system for an already installed operating system. It should find yours and give you more options to which you want to select the option to Repair. This will preserve everything you have on the system.

In windows vista to get to the dos prompt you will need to use the operating system disk and boot to it. Then get into the Recovery Console and look down at the bottom for the Dos Command Prompt or Repair option.

Laptop won't boot up. It says 'windows error recovery' and I then have the option of either 'launch start up repair (recommended)' or 'start windows normally' neither option works gets me anywhere I just...


Once you enter the setup and it loads the entire program, then you need to press the R key, which is for repairing the windows installation. This action will take you to the dos mode where further processing will be done. In the dos mode, system will ask you about installation place. Most of the people install their operating system in the C drive, which comes at number 1 option, so you need to press option 1. However, if you have so many partitions or you have installed the operating system then you need to choose the option according to your drive name. Here you need to enter your password as well, but if you have not set any password then you can simply press enter.
*Then there will be a c:\WINDOWS> command in a dos mode where you need to write, "Copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\windows. However, if you have different place of your installed operating system then you will write the address of that drive. This is the whole process and now you can eject the cd and can press exit to restart the system. Now this process will copy the correct NTLDR file from installation disk to your hard drive by making your system in the working condition.

My computer shuts down acer programs wont run


If your computer has preinstalled recovery options:



1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
Click the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, click the arrow next to the Lock button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then click Restart.
2. Do one of the following:
• If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
• If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu as a preinstalled recovery option.)
4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
5. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.
6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.
