Hello, I have an old Acer Aspire 3680, the problem is once i press the power button the screen is frozen displaying only the Acer logo, i cannot even go to the BIOS (pressing F2) to change my setting to boot from a CD. Please help. THX
After searching and reading many doomsday comments about this error message and what it means and what caused it, I found the simple solution with the Acer Aspire One ZG-5 mini-laptop displaying the "A disk read error occured... Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" error message, the probable simple solution is to Press Alt+F10 during reboot and the laptop will go into the Acer eRecovery mode.
It may or may not ask for a password or require creating a password, this password will be required to use eRecovery in the future. If you forget this step, you will need the recovery disks in the future to reformat the system.
Also please note that depending upon the options you choose you may lose any data on the computer because it restores the original operating system as the computer came out of the box.
Also, because restoring or recovery is a lengthyprocess you will need to plug the computer into the AC power supply.
Follow the instructions as they appear on the screen to restore or recover the operating system.
Also, it is a good idea once you have restored or recovered the operating system to go on the Acer website and download any patches or updates available.
I bet your using alot of pics and vidieo. you need to take a break every now and then and run mcafee or you can go to tools then internet options and clean your system real fast and then go back to what you were doin'. but you may lose your history so dont plan on clicking back to a recent page. but it is worth it I think
try hooking up an external display and restore the settings , if that don't work you will need the operating disk to reinstall system files and you won't lose any data and the display settings will be restored
