Hi,

Sounds like your system files have got corrupted, I think you may have a virus,

Best thing to do is back up everything onto discs and run the recovery program to correct this.

Sorry..!

Acer is going straight to a black screen after the acer logo in startup....it just shows a tiny blinking line. It goes no farther. I need help fast


Apparently your Acer cannot find the operating system. As soon as the Acer logo comes up, there should appear in one of the bottom corners "F" & a number should appear. Immediately start pressing that F number (top row of keyboard). This should take you to a boot screen. Scroll down to boot sequence. Hit enter. Make sure boot-up sequence is CD or floppy drive first, second should be HDD, then escape. Restart computer. Should then boot off CD drive. I am assuming you have an operating system (XP, windows, etc.). Let me know if this doesn't work.

Can't get anything but a black screen and blinking cursur?


Could be that a virus took out some needed files to boot to windows. Try inserting operating disc and repair MBR. Or you might just have to do a full system recovery.

Toshiba a75 s-206 problems helppppppppppppppp


Sounds like a bad hard drive to me. Take out the hard drive completely from the laptop and boot up with the windows xp cd and it should go past the blinking cursor. At that point you know you'll need another hard drive.

When the refresh rate changes then the screen will flicker. Change your refresh rate to above 75.

Acer 4720Z lost vista os


Most likely the hard drive went out, do you hear a clicking noise or loud ticking coming from the laptop?

Does it give you any kind of message like " NTLDR missing."?

Let me know.

Recovery disks aren't Windows XP


Have you tried booting the laptop with the recovery disk already in the CD drive. If the disk doesnt register and start to spin press F12. Should give you option to boot from CD
