The solution press alt +F10 when computer is first switched on.you need to hold down ALT as soon as the acer splash screen appears,and repeatedly press F10.The windows opportunity is very small,so this may take a few attempts.The disk2disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery cds. this will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine. if possible i strongly advice backing up anything important on your machine before starting recovery process.This does work as i contacted acer direct fortunately my daughter only lost a few photos and in future will save work to usb device.

Do a recovery from boot up. Press F12 after you power up the unit. Should take you to a boot list. or read your manual and it will tell u what to press to get to recovery. Do a full system recovery.

Acer Aspire One loops on start up screen. All it does is show the acer logo, then shows the ''windows was shut down improperly'' screen with all those options and then goes to the windows xp start up...


Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.

Windows will not start up on acer aspire 4315 notebook


If you have data that you need on your laptop you may want to take it to Geeksquad or to someone and have them pull the informaiton off. If you have the restoration disk you may want to use them. Either your hard drive messed up or the software on it did but unless you have a windows xp cd to do a repair install (installs a "fresh" copy of windows). If you do not have either the windows xp cd or the restoration cd you can obtain them from the vendor or maker of the computer. The price for these disk should be about $30.00.

sounds like you're windows is corrupted use a windows install disk get to the part where you have choice to install windows or repair it and you can then run auto repair. If possible BACK UP anything you need before this and you will need to run updates afterwards as it overwrites many newer files

Acer start up


use your recovery disc that came with your computer to restart windows. or if you have a windows xp program disc this will give the option to do a repair or reload computer with a fresh copy of windows.
