Question about Acer Aspire 4720 Notebook
My acer aspire 4702z is not booting up after it crashed a few times it only reaches the acer screnn and after that a cursor is all i see blinking
Try pressing the F8 key a few times just before you see the flashing cursor. This will give you a boot menu, select "start in safe mode".
If it boots up then, goto start menu->shutdown, when the shutdown menu appears, select turn off.
Leave machine off for 30 seconds, then try to switch on normally.
If it still won't boot, You will have to re-install from the restore disks.
DO NOT RE-INSTALL UNTIL YOU HAVE TRIED THE ABOVE, TRUST ME ;-)

Ok. so it sounds bad but its not. so do the following.
1 - make sure no cd is in the drive or usb is plugged in - restart
2- if it still is not working then the operating system has failed (boot) so you need to restore your laptop with the restore disks that came with it. if there is data on the drive you really really need then you need to do more work. if thats the case let me know and i can tell you how to do it - with out loads of $$ at a shop ( or if the data is sensitive etc)
Insert the restore disks and follow on screen instructions IF you dont have them you then need the following.
A copy of XP/Vista (full install) and a working pc so you can get the drivers and other application software.
The easist option is to insert a copy of xp/vista and repair the master boot record via the dos prompt. you may need help with this.
I can talk you through it.
Dont take it to a shop and pay loads of money - have a go yourself!!! its not that hard!
