You may have to boot from a CD and make a repair. Once logged in the CD, choose repair option (Recovery Console), and type these three commands: 1) fixmbr (wait til it finishes) 2) fixboot (wait...) 3) CHKDSK (this will take longer than the previous two. Your laptop may now boot normally. I think your laptop doesn't have an internal CD-ROM so you may use an external USB CD.
You want to clean off your laptop so it looks like it came from the factory? Wipe out all the files you've put on it, and only have a fresh operating system?
-- Make sure you have the "Factory restore" or "system restore" discs from Acer. They can ship another copy to you for $5. -- Make sure you have the Windows product key code, readable. (My sticker wore off in a hurry). -- IF you are giving your computer to someone else, download Darin's Boot and Nuke, and use that to purge the hard drive of everything, using the default recommended thing, like 5 or 7 passes -- Restart using the factory restore discs, and follow instructions.
your screen wiring may have gone bad. if you plug a regular monitor into the laptop, try pressing function + F4 or one of the F keys at the top. It should have a little monitor icon on it. Its a different key on some laptops. It will switch the display to use the monitor. Are you able to get a picture that way?
Re-install windows, then it will ask you for the Restore disk 1 then 2 then 3. I think the Ghost that is factory installed is a fars.
If it doesnt ask you for the Restore disks - just stick # 1 in and she'll tale over from there and re-write the Ghost issue again ...
I did that same for my Boss's 5040 last week. Dont forget to go into the Bios and reset the Boot sequense to CD Rom, and then
change the Booting sequense back after the restore has taken place.
Unfortunately you have to change the mainbord cause your nvidia crad has broken down and its sticked with the mainbord
Had the same problem and waitde for 1 1/2 month in order to take it back fixed....Good luck and be patient...
