Hi my laptop wont go to windows , it just saying prepare boot to os . can anyone help please


Windows may not be starting due to a driver problem. In any case, see if you can get into the Windows Advanced Options Menu as follows...
1. have the ac adapter connected
2. power on the laptop and watch the screen
3. when the Acer logo is showing, press F8 repeatedly
4. Windows Advanced Options Menu should now start
5. once you are in the Menu, use the up and down arrow keys to select an option
You could try starting with ...
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
OR
Safe Mode
where you could do a System Restore to an earlier date when the system was working
If none of this works and you don't have any user data that needs to be saved, then do as follows.
All Acer netbooks have a factory install image on a hidden partition of the hard disk. Suggest you should re-install the original windows factory image. All user data on the C: drive will be cleared by Acer eRecovery which you would start up as follows....
1. have the netbook connected to its AC adapter which is plugged into AC power line
2. power on the netbook and watch the screen as it starts up
3. when the acer logo is showing, hold down the Alt key and press F10 repeatedly
4. until screen indicates Acer eRecovery is starting
5. once eRecovery is loaded, follow the directions given on the screen

My notebook screen flashes white when it starts up


Is this a new thing your laptop does when starting up? Or has it always done it? If your computer still turns on and functions fine, it's just that the screen is getting power before the computer is sending information to it, and is nothing to worry about.

ACER LAPTOP NOT STARTING


Try to reinstall windows overwriting the previous installation so that all your data, files and programs will not be deleted. If you have your windows installation cd, insert it to the cd/dvd drive and start/restart your laptop. It then detects the installer and scans your computer. Just follow the on-screen instructions. But during setup, do not choose the "Repair Mode" instead choose "New Install". Now when attempting to install, then system will detect your previous windows installation so there highlight (using the arrow keys) choose "Repair Previous Installation". When you do this, all windows system files will be replaced but all programs and personal files will be in tact.

You should start it up in safe mode. To do this, you repeatedly press F8 as it's starting up, until you come to a menu of startup options where you'll see options such as safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. Boot into safe mode. Once you're in safe mode, you can do lots of stuff like roll back the updates, disable certain startup services, etc.

Acer Aspire 5735Z - Vista Home Prem. shutdown hang


updates can be slow,and lead to more updates sometimes.you should goto windows update,let it search for important updates then install them.even if it takes a while,once you do that it should be fine.and configure updates to auto download but ask to install.

Configuring updates dont stop


I'll assume last known good configuration didn't work, if you press f8 and choose disable automatic restart on failure, you should see the blue screen of death with more info, when you reboot the next time,(you may have to hold in power button for 5 secs), press f8 and see if Repair my computer is listed on the Microsoft Startup menu, if not, insert a windows vista disk and restart,booting to the cd(should happen automatically, but look for a prompt to press a key) choose your language, then choose repair my computer, choose the windows installation, and you can try to use system restore to go back before the uodates were installed and updated, then disable automatic updating so it doesn't repeat.

Windows will not start/run.


Try tapping the F8 key while starting up the computer to see if it will start in safemode. If the computer will not start in safemode you may have a failed hard drive that needs to be replaced. If you do get the computer to start in safemode backup all your data and then perform a CHKDSK (check disk) on your hard drive by right clicking on your c drive and going properties and then to tools then checkdisk.
