The board might be dead... does the computer boot at all do you get anything on the screen or is it just black.

It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps

I need a system recovery cd for my acer travelmate 290. when it is turned on it goes to boot menu and requires a cd to reboot the system. i think it has been wiped out. where do i get a download i can put...


Before you lose all hope of fixing it without having to purchase a fresh system from Microsoft, as the BIOS menu ends quickly press F8 and if the system is still intact you will be invited to repair your system from the hard drives recovery partition. If that doesn't work there are people selling start up disks on the internet, I haven't tried them and cannot comment.
Hope this helps.

if your cdrom stops installing the operating system, then either the processor is damaged or the hard drive is faulty, as initially the installation files have to be installed to run the main O.S installation
