Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an acer travelmate 252LC_DT which whenever I start doesn't load the operating system and just displays a blank screen. Prior to this the Micro-antivirus 2009 virus was located on the laptop and I tried to remove this, during this the laptop crashed and I rebooted. Windows XP asked if I wished to restart using safe mode which I selected and the computer restarted. After loading the laptop froze and I was unable to access anything or press anything except for the power button. Occassionally the laptop will provide the three safe mode options after starting up by it will get to desktop screen and then just hang. I've tried to reboot but the screen remains blank when I insert the CD and reboot. Can you assist?

Ok my friend as you said the operating system is not loading any more so that means we are having some corrupt files that makes the windows to fail while trying to boot up.

and since you cannot even log in to the computer even in safe mode that means you have only two options.

first is to try a repair (most of the computers use F12 key to get to the repair counsel).
second reinstalling windows.

so try the first one if it doesn't work then reinstalling windows will be the last thing to do.

if you need and further help please let me know

cheers

Reset Acer Aspire X3200 To Factory Setting


Assuming the restore partition is intact, boot the machine and press and hold F10 and ALT at the same time. If the partition is intact, you should be brought to a restore menu and given the option to restore to factory settings. If this doesn't work, you may have corrupted the restore partition and will need disks to install an operating system. If you created Rescue Disks in Vista, simply load the 1st disk and reboot.

Hi ourkiddys...
How to reinstall the Operating system on your computer

Select models, with Microsoft Windows, have the ability to have the Operating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.
To start the system recovery:
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
3.If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
4.After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form..
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
3.Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
4.Close the CD-ROM tray.
5.Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
6.The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
7.When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

8.After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: if your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.
Please take time to rate me

Picture does not fill Screen


It is displays fine up unto the point where Vista loads, then it must only happen when Vista loads the display driver. I would go with your initial assumption and reinstall the display driver.

The screen is broken and i need to connect it to a pc monitor in order to get data off but the monitor is saying no signal.... it showed the windows startup but then turns off


most likely, that's because the video resolution or frequency is not set correctly for the "new" monitor.

your best bet will be to begin tapping the "F8" key prior to seeing the windows load screen. you should see the "ACER" screen first then it will normally transition to the windows loading screen. when you see the ACER screen, start tapping the "F8" key approximately once per second (if you tap too rapidly, you will get a keyboard error... in which case, just reboot the computer.). once the "F8" stroke is successful, you should get a list of options. one of the options should say "Safe Mode" and "Safe Mode with Networking". using your arrow keys, select one of them and press enter. hopefully, being in safe mode will allow your "new" monitor to display the default frequency and resolution.

Unfortunately your lcd screen is bad and needs to be replaced. Remove your screen, (don't forget to emove the battery first) get the number off of the back of the lcd and buy another one. Make sure THE NUMBERS MATCH, as close won't do. I see this problem about 2-3 times a month.
