My computer "freezes up" have Windows Vista


Vista isn't very good. Upgrading to 7 will probably fix it, but you could just use another browser. Instead of using Internet Explorer, download Mozilla Firefox for Windows Vista and try it. Seems to work a little better. Make SURE you periodically remove junk from your hard drive and defragment it, or this will happen too.

How to fix BOOTMGR is missing" Error While Trying to Boot Windows Vista


If your Windows Vista computer has encountered the dreaded “BOOTMGR is missing” error, you aren’t alone. If the problem isn’t hardware related you can fix it with relative ease as long as you have a Windows Vista DVD handy.
If you don’t have one, you can create a Windows Vista repair disk using our guide

Boot off the Windows Vista DVD and then click Next at the first prompt

You should see a link in the lower left-hand side for “Repair your computer

The installation process will attempt to find your Vista installation directory. If there’s more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again

Click the first link for “Startup Repair

The installation process will repair the system, and then prompt for you to reboot

Alternatively you could have chosen the Command Prompt option instead, and use the following command to fix the boot options only:
bootrec /fixboot

At this point you should be able to reboot your computer, remove the DVD and everything should be working. If not, then head over to our forums and ask your question there. We’ve got some top-notch geeks over there!

Acer M5641: computer crashed, mbr is corrupted, 'CD/DVD Drivers..


Hello,

What I am going to say pertains to Windows XP (I cannot vouch it will work for Vista, because I do not have Vista).

Boot from the installation CD, Choose Repair installation. You will have access to the recovery console. Log in the Windows installation that is detected. You will be asked for the adminstrator password. Once logged in Type Help. In the list of commands available there is one called FIXMBR. Check its syntax by typing Help fixmbr, or even fixmbr ?
Type the correct command at the prompt and hit enter/return. It should fix it. After that Press CTRL ALT DEL to reboot.

If that does fix the mbr use another computer and query the microsoft knowledge base for Recovery Console (or the equivalent for Vista) and following the instructions.
Hope it helps.

Ii have a message ' no active mixer device'


If a reboot does not fix this error, you may have faulty, incomplete driver information, windows is known for this at times.

uninstall your sound drivers from the hardware console, then reboot the PC and re-install them.

to get to the hardware console:

XP
right-click on " my computer " > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > sound, video and game controllers

Vista / Windows 7
start > right-click on " my computer " > Properties > " Device manager > sound, video and game controllers

My computer wont work


There are many possible causes for this kind of problem. With Safe Mode not booting, though, the possible fixes become few. Your best bet is to put your Windows CD/DVD in the drive and reboot the system by turning it off and back on or hitting the reset button - hitting enter or CTL-ALT-DEL won't give you the kind of reboot you need.

As the system is rebooting, keep watch on the screen near the bottom - you *may* need to hit a key to get the computer to boot from the CD/DVD. Once it's started to boot from the CD/DVD, follow the prompts to re-install Windows.

If you get an option to format the drive, don't do it! Just choose to keep the file system unchanged.

Good Luck!

Acer t180 boots to erecovery


Borrow any Vista install DVD and boot from it

Follow it through until you are asked if you want to install Vista or Repair your Computer
Select repair and let it do its thing - it may work
Failing that its a full reinstall by the sounds of it

If it does not offer you the initial boot option then look on the boot screen for the boot options key - probably F11 or F12 - and press that during initial boot to obtain the boot options screen

Reformating


You need to have a windows vista dvd or a recovery/restore cd from Acer. CD-less installation will only work if your computer has a restore image which should be installed in the factory. I dont think acer dekstops have that though.

Just call Acer and ask for a vista dvd or see if you know someone who owns a computer which came with the same version of vista and borrow their dvd.
