Acer 2300 Travelmate wont start up

HI, I have a travelmate running on XP. Initially it failed to start up saying NTLDR was missing, I did not have the re-boot disk so tried starting from Windows Original disk. It started loading then frooze. After I left it for an hour I tried to re-boot but now there is no start up. The main power button comes on but there is no post screen. The light on the front left (its got a light bulb next to it) just flashes! Do you have any suggestions?

My guess is that your ram got loosed a little bit. that is why some of your system files are not loading correctly. Try re-inserting you ram or memory. just always remember that computer parts are very fragile so do not force to dislodge anything.

Have corrupted files on my acer travelmate 2300


So are you running xp or windows 7, either way you could put in your operating system discs and go through the prompts and repair computer, windows 7 will find error and correct as will xp, but with xp if you choose repair you will lose all updates and servicepacks, or you could try these instructions on the link below

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
