ACER Aspire 3050: Operating System not found

My computer wasn't allowing me to access the internet explorer program. When I was working on fixing this problem, suddenly the computer itself would not start. It doesn't go any further than the black screen that gives me the following:

Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.17 (051202)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE Rom.
Operating System not found


My computer usually shows the above, however this is the first time it's shown the "operating system" statement.

Boot menu


Your computer's BIOS, or basic input/output system, regulates several important system functions before your operating system loads.
The BIOS can even tell your operating system which device it should load from, whether the computer's hard drive or a USB stick.
You can control this and other options from the BIOS boot menu.
If you own an Acer Aspire One netbook and want to access the boot menu, you can do so by entering the computer's BIOS.

Turn off your Acer Aspire One netbook.
Turn it back on.

Press "F2" when you see the Acer logo appear as the computer boots up.
This will open the computer's BIOS menu.

Press the arrow keys to highlight the Boot option.
Press the down arrow key to highlight specific boot settings to change.

Windows operating systems support a variety of boot options on the Windows Advanced Options Menu that allow you boot your computer based on your need.

They support boot options such as Safe Mode, which is generally best for troubleshooting and virus removals; or the Safe Mode with Networking, which allows to use an Internet connection while troubleshooting system problems.
Within seconds, you can access the boot menu and select the option that works well for the task you want to accomplish.

Shut down all currently running programs and restart your computer.
Press "F8" repeatedly before the Windows icon shows up on your screen.
This will bring you to the "Windows Advance Options Menu."

Scroll down and select the boot option you want.
Press "Enter."You can select from "Safe Mode" "Safe Mode with Networking" or your regular booting option.
Choose the boot option based on your need.
For troubleshooting, it is advisable to select "Safe Mode" because only a certain amount of drivers and resources run allowing you to resolve issues.

I have an Acer Aspire 3050 and it only goes to a black screen that says "Operating system not found" Help Need this working again...


OK, best case scenario is your hard drive is corrupt, worst case, hard drive is dead.

What to do - you could download the hirens boot cd and see if you can rejuvenate the hard drive firstly by going into mini windows and check if you can see the C: drive in windows explorer, if you can thern running chkdsk c: /f might sort it for you.

There are other utilities in the hirens disc that could help but that's where I'd start.

If you're not confident doing this then you might need to take it to your local pc engineer.

Have inherited Acer Aspire one netbook. It says that it is now wireless connected but when i press browser nothing happens. Should this have something like internet explorer like my normal computer.


The Acer Aspire One comes with an edition of Windows 7 pre-installed. If that is the current operating system that it has now, then you should have Internet Explorer; it comes with every recent edition of Windows, and is very difficult to uninstall. To see if you have Internet Explorer (with Windows 7), open windows explorer and navigate to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\" If you do not see "Program Files (x86)", then look for just "Program Files". There should be an application called "iexplore.exe" Double click on that, and see if it opens.

I have an Acer Aspire One. Just got Comcast service. The Acer will connect to the wireless internet but I can't open internet explorer to browse the internet. I've done just about everything.


Hi wood_fami528,

If you cant open and run Internet Explorer it might be corrupted. There are some ways on how to diagnose if the Internet Explorer has been corrupted, try to use a different browser like Google chrome or Mozilla. Check if both browsers are working fine with your computer. If you can use other browser try to uninstall and reinstall the Internet Explorer. Here are the basic steps on how to reinstall it again.

1. Before you uninstall the program please make sure to download the latest Internet Explorer using a different browser.
--> you can download it here.

2. Uninstall the Internet Explorer by going to the control panel.
--> Click Start button, point to control panel, Add remove programs then click Internet Explorer then uninstall it.

3. After you uninstalled the Internet Explorer you may now restart the system.

4. Turn on the computer then install the latest Internet Explorer.

5. Restart again the computer and you should good by now.

-- if you're still experiencing the same issue, try to do a system restore.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

ACER Aspire 3050: Operating System not found


Some times the hard drives move in their craddles sometimes removing it can fix this when you reseat the connections again,another common fault there is the lock screw for the craddle comes loose and falls out thru vibration and hard use over the years moving from place to place.etc...

Make sure to remove the battery and the power charger for the laptop before starting this process so nothing else happens,I have changed ram before and killed it by forgetting to remove the power and upset the balance of nature inside the laptop and had to start gain with more ram.

Another thing is the hard drive itself could be in need of formatting agian so you may have to remove the drive and take it to another computre to back up your files before your rofmat and start with a fressh windows install agian,at least you get to have a working machine agian....
Good luck and let me know the outcome thanks
