I will assume it has xp installed, get hold of a xp cd, XP Home or Xp Pro, which ever is installed on your laptop and perform a repqir install. Boot from cd run through setup but after pressing F8 to accept EULA choose to repair windows and use same directory, most programs will continue to work , any docs and system/user profiles will remain intack.

Acer aspire AME600- UR368 boot menu


To get to the boot menu, you have to press F12, or F8 when you first turn on your computer. If your OS starts loading, you've gone too far and must start over again.

I hope this helps :)

I have Acer 1200 Aspire. When I turn it on, it won't proceed past the initial window. It says boot failure.


It almost sounds like your primary boot disk is incorrectly selected in the BIOS. On older machines, the primary disk on the primary cable had to be the boot disk, but nowadays almost any device can be selected as boot disk. Check your BIOS setting and ensure that the hard disk partition that you have Windows installed on is selected as the first boot device. Otherwise, the system may be looking in the wrong place for the OS and giving the boot error.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

Hi. When I turn on my Acer aspire t180, only the red button light up, but the green button does not light up . And then nothing happens. Please help me as im having the same problem for months already.


Im guessing the PC starts up flashes the lights turns off and repeats?

If so the hard drive boot sector is gone or damaged. Try to boot from the Windows disk.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

I have an acer aspire L350 i want to restore it from the recovery partition but i dont know what to press to get to it please help


When you first turned on your laptop from new, you should have been prompted to create back up disks of your system.

If you did not do this, then you can try the following.

Most models of Acer Aspire have recovery system capabilities.
When booting up press F2 to enter the bios. Make sure that D2D recovery system is enabled then exit and save the changes. Press Alt+F10 to enter recovery. If this does not work for you then contact Acer for replacement recovery disks.

I hope this helps

I have acer aspire laptop purchased from dabs feb 2007 hard drive crashed 2 weeks out of warranty, i have put in new hard drive, how much would it cost to puirchase the discs for operating system serial...


Hi,

If your Aspire laptop has a Microsoft sticker at the bottom with the Product Key, it is not necessary for you to re-purchase CD installer of the Operating System. You could try borrowing from friends their XP Pro CD installers or even an OEM and simply use that. When asked for the CD key, use what is printed in the aforementioned sticker.

As long as the motherboard/entire machine is not replaced, then this would be an acceptable alternative. Should you still wish to purchase an Windows XP Pro SP2 installer CD, it would roughly cost USD 60.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
