Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook

1 Answer

Opening an acer laptop

My son has just loaded a disk for a brand new Zen MP3 player onto the laptop. It will now on powering up go through the windows opening logo and then go straight to a page that says there has been a problem and you can either start windows in Safe Mode, Windows at last good configuration and Windows Normally.
Whichever one you go for you end up with a blank page and just the Mouse Arrow to work with. Nothing else.

Tried taking battery out and using power cable only gone into set up and reset.
Nothing
Can anyone help ?

I'm trying to restore my laptop back to factory settings It's windows 7 the cd disk don't recovery disc don't work


Have you tried while in Windows, to use the Start Menu, find Acer on the All Programs list, and locate the recovery utility? I have an Acer laptop - an Aspire - and had to do exactly that. I used the built-in recovery routine on the Acer Laptop and was able to rebuild my laptop to the condition of when it just came out of the box, brand new.It will delete all your installations since you got it, applications and documents and photos, etc., will be gone, but your laptop will function as if brand new. Good luck with it. -a.

It wont reboot, keeps asking for reboot disk for which i dont have because it was a gift


Reboot means restarting the pc after a simple power off - so there is no reboot disk.
If you are referring to recovery or reinstall disk then you can order a new one from Acer - for that go here

    Ca i replace the hard drive in a acer aspire one 8'9 with one from a hp mini110? thankyou


    Hi

    most laptop hard drives are same size 2.5
    but the hard drive from the hp may have a different face plate or holder but can easily be removed

    also the os system on the hp will not load up and work on the acer
    you will have to
    either use windows easy transfer to copy your entire hard drive files and save onto spare hard drive
    so that when you replace and format different hard drive you can then transfer it back onto new hard drive

    or if pre windows 7 os you could use something like norton ghost to copy your existing operating system and files and make a system image and store on spare hard drive then when you replace the hard drive
    you boot up with norton ghost and ask it to find the image and restore it to the new drive

    Or if your lucky enough to have the operating installation disk or can get your hands on another retail installation disk you can reload a new operating system using the product code which should be on a sticker on the base of your laptop

    Hope this was useful to you

    Brand new acer aspire won't load windows xp


    If you can still get into the BIOS, see if you have an option for D2D recovery. if so, make sure it is enabled.

    restart the system and hold down Alt+f10. if your recovery partition is still intact, this should start a factory reload of your system.

    I ahve no drivers to install windows vista.


    this happens to my acer a lot.  your hard drive was most likely knocked from its position and you need to open up the back and put it back in.  if that doesnt work then another component on it is broken and you will have to have a professional look at it
