Try this link:
http://tinyempire.com/notes/ntldrismissing.htm Or re-install XP. Once you do that, you will need XP drivers for your PC's hardware. Here is that link: http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html

Can not get computer to boot up


If you have Vista, insert the cd and boot the laptop. Make sure to hit any key when advised to by the screen. You will see....."boot from cd, hit any key" Once the cd runs it will load windows, when that is done it will offer several options. Choose start up repair first and let the computer run. Windows will attempt to repair the boot up for your windows installation.

"NTLDR is missing" message on boot-up.


That message appears when Windows cannot boot. You may run a repair using your Windows CD. Just start your PC with the CD in the drive and follow the choices in the screen.Remember select REPAIR, not Install, as you will end loosing all your files.

Operating system not found


This means it cannot find the Windows OS files because either:-
The hard disk has failed or it needs reseating.
or the hard disk controller has failed.
or the Windows files have been deleted or corrupted (maybe by virus)

Try reseating the hard drive.
If the hard disk is faulty, you need a new one.
Try using your recovery CD disk.
Try re-installing Windows

Blue Screen of Death


You'll need to setup the Acer laptop to boot from CD-ROM. Push either the F2 or F10 button when booting your laptop and it should bring-up the configuration management interface. Go through the options and confirm that Boot From CD-ROM is at the top of the list on bootable devices.

Next, you'll need your original Windows XP CD that came with the Laptop. Put it in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot your laptop. You will be given two options: 1) Re-install Windows or 2) Repair the existing Windows Installation. I recommend that you repair the existing Windows Installation as this will not destroy and data or device drivers that are install on the laptop.

Good Luck!

Can someone tell me how to reboot my Acer Aspire 5050?


"Can someone tell me how to reboot my Acer Aspire..."
"I use Windows Vista".

Right! Thankyou for providing more information than most users do here, but in this case, Windows Vista will look and run the same on any computer. =-D

Click on the start-menu button (it's the Windows logo at the bottom-left of your screen)

Then aim for an icon that is red, with a white circle and a line in it. Click that, and then you'll be prompted for restart, shutdown, take over the world etc.

Done! =-]

Acer Aspire 5050-3371 not playing CDs or DVDs


Hi,
You need to re-install The Drivers ( software to make the Device Work ) I,d suggest visiting Acers Driver Site. typing in the model number of your laptop. and searching for a Suitable Driver for CD/DVD Rom.
Operating system depending, you can right click on the device and try un-installing it. reboot the computer. and you should get a message new devive found. and give you the option to re-install the driver for it.
Unfortunately we cannot post links for you to Obtain these Drivers, But i,d look at global.Acer.com Support and Download.

if u tried installing windows from a CD onto the HDD and it still says missing ntldr. seems like a Bad hard-drive.

you can restart by pressing control-alt-delete.

then, try booting from windows CD and repairing the windows installation. if it gives u file copy errors.then, it is a HDD failure. get a new HDD.
