You may have a conflict with the hardware. I have had installations fail because of this. You may want to use the Ubuntu live CD to boot into Ubuntu. If this works out for you, you should be able to install.

If you cannot boot into Ubuntu using the live CD, try booting into the CD using some special boot prompts. See this How To:

Knowing Linux secrets


on some systems that wiil not allow a "windows" install due to "corruption" you can install Ubuntu 10.10 or even S.U.S.E.--so be wary of these Linux operating systems,although they are good systems ,both of them you can hide memory or hard drive corruption--so be wary of pc;s that have them installed as a non-standard option--only experts know this!

How to retrieve your data from a computer that won't boot.


When you cannot boot up your computer, just purchase a live CD of a Linux Disc, any live cd will work, (Koppix, Open Suse, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc...) This will bring up a working Operating System, which will allow you to get your files off of the computer and then you can recover the system.

I will ask if i can download windows 7 on linux acer aspire 4738?there will be a problem?


there won't be any problem as far as Windows and Linux, but this is a fairly involved procedure.You'll first need to create a Windows partition on your hard disk in NTFS file system format. Otherwise,Windows might overwrite / erase your linux installation when Windows 7 installs.
make the windows partition the "Primary" or "Boot" partition.
When Windows 7 installs, it may ask if you want to delete the linux partition.Answer "NO" to this.
The next concern is which operating system will boot by default,Windows or Linux.
I had no problem doing this with Windows Vista, and whe Vista booted,it listed a choice of operating systems to boot,and I would select either Windows Vista or Ubuntu Linux.

My acer aspire 4520 unexpected turn off


If you formatted your disc, you have erased your hard drive and its operating system.

To reinstall your operating system you will need a CD/DVD drive. You can get Windows or Linux. You can download a copy from another computer and burn it to CD. Linux is free, and an easy version to start with is Ubuntu. You can download it here: http://www.ubuntu.com/GetUbuntu/download

Download the ISO file from that link, and burn it to a CD or DVD. If Windows doesn't recognize the format of the file you downloaded, you will also have to download a program burn the disc, such as Nero. You can download Nero here http://www.nero.com/enu/support-downloads.html

With the disc ready, turn on your laptop and put the disc in. It should automatically boot from your CD, if you hard drive has been formatted. If not, restart the computer and press F2 at the very first screen to enter BIOS. It will look like a blue console. In BIOS, go to Boot Options. Use the + and - keys to make the CD/DVD drive boot first, by moving it to the top of the list. Save and exit (F10). Your computer will restart and boot from the CD. Press a key to boot from the CD and follow the instructions to install your operating system.

If your laptop does not have a CD/DVD drive, you will have to use a USB drive to install your operating system. It is a bit more complicated to do, but you can find instructions here: moz-screenshot.pnghttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick

My acer 5720 is dead battery is good and ac is connected it just wont start


Hello,

The problem is with the corrupted boot files .In my opinion you have one solution
Steps for solution

1. Download an operating system called ' Linux mint ' which can be installed in the pen drive having minimum 4 gb capacity . Using this operating system you can access the computer .

2. Copy the file and folders to an external storage device (external hard disk, pen drive etc..)

3. Reinstall the operating system ( XP,Vista ,Window 7,Ubuntu etc )

Hope you be successful
