Hi!
Would you plz explain more!
What I understand is you want to restart your computer but you can't!
If this is the problem, You need to provide me with system you working on, if it's XP, you may try this:
Click "Run" from "Start Menu" then type: sfc /scannow
It will ask you to insert the Win XP CD in the CD ROM Drive, then press continue.
Wait untill the operation finishes then try again.
If your problem is different, please explain more!

Why does my Acer 1200 recovery disk not boot?


Your BIOS might not be set to boot from CDs as a startup option. Try pressing F12 as the computer is restarting for boot options and enable the cd boot option. If it lets you put it first in line.

My acer aspire am5100 desktop needs a recovery to wipe the hard drive. I have the discs, but when they are placed in the drive, the system doesn't recognize them and starts up normally. It basically...


With the first recovery disc in in the drive, and starting from a powered off machine, press the power button and then press quickly and repeatedly on the F12 key. The boot menu should appear. When it does, make sure that CD/DVD/Optical whatever drive is highlighted. If it's not, use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight it. When it's highlighted, hit the enter key.

The second you see a white message on a black screen that says...."Press any key to boot from CD" hit a key and begin to follow all the prompts.

You should be ok after that.

Regards,

Selk

Acer computer is frozen on screen which reads press f12 or del to enter setup. when computer comes on it does not beep so i cannot use keyboard all the lights on the keyboard aare off. HELP!!


From the description you are giving, it appears that the system is not detecting a bootable hard disk drive. Hold the power button on the system till it powers off. once system is off, try the following:
  1. Ensure no floppy diskette is in the A: if system has a floppy drive
  2. Disconnect all external items (Printer, scanner, network connection) leave only video and keyboard connected to system.
  3. Try powering system on again
If the system gives the same message, try rebooting and pressing F12 ONCE at the ACER screen and see if you can get a 1 time boot menu. If you can get the boot menu, select CD-ROM, and put you WINDOWS CD in the optical drive, see if system will boot to the CD. If you can, then at the first prompt, press R to enter recovery console, and see if you can run the command CHKDSK /R (then press enter)
If chkdsk runs, then reboot and see if the error has gone away. IF you cannot run CHKDSK then the hard disk drive has likely failed and will need replacement.

Acer aspire not loading to windows


Hi,

If you have recovery disc or back up disc put it in and restart the PC and start tapping the F12 key until at the Acer splash screen, you should get now see your boot order, now use your up and down cursor key to highlight the CD/DVD drive and then press enter, this will now start the recovery disc that you put in, just follow the on-screen instructions.

If you don't have a disc, restart the PC and at the Acer splash screen start tapping the ALT+F10 or just F10 and if you have a recovery partition on your hardrive then the recovery program will start up, just follow the on-screen instructions.

Thanks

Computer wont load up


If you can open you system than what you have to do is just to unplug the hard disk power cable and data cable and refit is properly and than start your system. This will definately help you unless your system is not effected with virus.

Acer Aspire T180


check your removable media disk drives and make sure that you don't have like a jump drive or CD-Rom that the computer doesn't like. If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS setup (usually F2, F12, ESC or something like that....check the bottom of the screen.) and find the Boot Order settings & move hard drive to #1

Very slow computer


Hello,

You can reformat the hard drive when installing windows. In order to get this done you will need a bootable windows instalation cd. Just start the computer and press f12 to select boot from cd. When the windows instalation starts, among the first things it will do is to ask you how to reformat the hard drive. In order for this to be shown however, you will need to boot the cd when you start the computer instead of running it from windows. Make sure you copy the files you don't want to loose to another hard drive or usb stick before you attempt this. Once you allow the windows instalation cd to format the drive you can't recover anything from it, and a new, fresh copy of windows will be installed with factory defaults.

If you need more informations please reply.

Acer Aspire T180-UB72 does not boot


I have the same model and had the same problem. Fortunately there is a simple fix - unplug all your USB devices (mouses, printers etc). It should now boot!

Assuming that fixed it, it was trying to boot from a USB drive for some unknown reason. I think it was due to the latest windows XP update. Wierd. Hit F12 next time you reboot and make sure it is booting from hard disk first.
