Hi my name is samson so if i understand you during startup you get error occurred when loading if you are using windows try to run msconfig and disable the start up items to do that
follow this go to start click on run typer msconfig on the right top coner you would see start up and at the bottem of that windows you will see disable all click on it then apply and restart the system

for your second problem got to registry editor but typing regedit in run box and follow HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} to this path and delete upper filter and lower filter and restart the system and your drive will work

Error loading operating system


try pressing F8 at bootup, when the SAFE MODE window comes up, select boot in Safe mode desktop. When at next window, you are asked if you wish to go to desktop, or perform a System restore, choose system restore, when the next window comes up, like a calender, simply choose a time prior to the problem, follow instructions, and it will go through and reboot. This should get you back.

Acer aspire x3200 error reading "disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter"


Check to make sure you don't have anything in your floppy drive. (3.5 drive or 5.25 if really old system).

If you can boot from bootable CD then probably your Hard Drive is not working and all other periferals are OK. If it is making clicking noises then the drive arm or the head is most likely shot and you need a new hard drive.

The one chance you do have is if your Hard Drive just needs to be made bootable again. Load up the XP cd as if you where to reinstall XP but instead goto the recovery console, type "fixmbr" at the command prompt once you have entered the XP logon, its very simple once you get there very well laid out.

Hope this helps. Best Regards,

Next step is remove hard drive and see if it is recognized in another computer. The Hard Drive could just be bad, but you need to rule out the motherboard drive controllers that could also be bad. Also try a known good drive in your system.

Can you start it in safe mode? If so, try to do a system restore.
Next do a start>run>sfc/scannow to see if there are any system files messed up.
Can't start in safe mode? Then try to boot from the system disk and at the first prompt to do a repair type "R". Then run chkdsk /r to see if this solves the problem. This will fix bad files.

Still out of luck? Then you are looking probably in the right direction when you suspect the video card.

Boot sequence manual


When you hit the power button on your computer a whole lot of stuff happens. We call this the boot process. In the days when I first started using computers there was literally a "boot disk", a floppy (5.25" not a 3.5") disk that told the system where to go and what to do so that the operating system would start up. Since then the boot sequence has become somewhat more complicated. So let me take you thru the steps the computer takes to get started. For my example I'm going to use a Windows XP system.
  1. First is the POST, this stands for Power On Self Test, for the computer. This process tests memory as well as a number of other subsystems. You can usually monitor this as it runs each test. After that is complete the system will run POST for any device that has a BIOS (Basic Input-Output System). An AGP has its own BIOS, as do some network cards and various other devices.
  2. Once the POST is complete and the BIOS is sure that everything is working properly, the BIOS will then attempt to read the MBR (Master Boot Record). This is the first sector of the first hard drive (called the Master or HD0). When the MBR takes over it means that Windows is now in control.
  3. The MBR looks at the BOOT SECTOR (the first sector of the active partition). That is where NTLDR is located, NTLDR is the BOOT LOADER for Windows XP. NTLDR will allow memory addressing, initiate the file system, read the boot.ini and load the boot menu. NTLDR has to be in the root of the active partition as do NTDETECT.COM, BOOT.INI, BOOTSECT.DOS (for multi-OS booting) and NTBOOTDD.SYS (if you have SCSI adapters)
  4. Once XP is selected from the Boot Menu, NTLDR will run NTDETECT.COM, BOOT.INI and BOOTSECT.DOS to get the proper OS selected and loaded. The system starts in 16-bit real mode and then moves into 32-bit protected mode.
  5. NTLDR will then load NTOSKRNL.EXE and HAL.DLL. Effectively, these two files are windows XP. They must be located in %SystemRoot%System32.
  6. NTLDR reads the registry, chooses a hardware profile and authorizes device drivers, in that exact order.
  7. At this point NTOSKRNL.EXE takes over. It starts WINLOGON.EXE that in turn starts LSASS.EXE, this is the program that display the Logon screen so that you can logon.

System passes the logon screen


Keep tapping the F8 key while you boot your machine, hopefully you will get a black screen with some white writting on it.
Using the up and down arrows select Boot Safe Mode without Networking.
Once you boot into safe mode go to programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and follow the wizard to restore your machine back to a time and date before you installed the modem software.
