Formatted acer aspire 5736z with windows 7 ultimate and finished but operating system not loading and takes me to recovery screen tried recovery but still takes me there again and again, tried to boot...


Please take a close look at the disk you are using to install "Windows 7 Ultimate". It is definitely a "Recovery Disk" for Windows 7 Ultimate. You cannot install Windows 7 with a recovery disk. Recovery disk always is used to repair corrupt or damaged files of Windows OS and requires that the Operating System is already installed. You need a "Windows 7 Ultimate" Installation disk to install Windows not a recovery disk for Windows.

I have a acer aspire x1700 that will not boot gives me a message that says windows failed to start status 0xc0000034. it will not run a disk


Hi,

You can try two things:

1. Boot up and Immediately begin tapping the F8 key. When the Option menu comes up select "Last known good configuration"
2. Sounds like you need to reboot using your windows recovery disc.

If it will not boot up using the disc, try again but press F12 while booting (Sometimes F2 or Del) to get into the Bios settings. Here you can tell the computer to boot up from a disc.

When booted, select Repair your Computer.

How do i restore my acer aspire 5715z to its factory settings without a cd


  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form.

Acer aspire 6930 - have tried all the suggested methods but all I get is 'error: no such partition. Grub rescue ' help!


Dear Friend,
The master boot record MBR might be wiped out causing the Operating System to be banished along with the recovery side (on major brands). My suggestion is to either reinstall a fresh copy or try fixing it by using windows recovery console.

Good Luck!

I have a Acer Aspire 5745 (CPU: Intel i5 processor 2.5GHz RAM: 2GB OS: Win 7 Home Basic) which is only 2 months old. Yesterday I started a installation setup of a game, when suddenly the system restarted....


Hi, I do apologize for the inconvenience you have been facing.The reason why the laptop does not reboot to Windows even after reinstalling Windows is because the issue is with the hard drive not being recognized the reason for which you get a blinking line on the screen after the Acer logo .In this case I would suggest that if the laptop is under warranty please contact the Acer Technical support and have an order placed for repair.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

Dear fixyai have an Acer 5602 laptop that was working fine until I received a load of updates (72) in one go which seems very uncommon but coming from microsoft updates I considered them to normal. i had...


If it didn't come with disks, that means it probably has a recovery partition on it. You can try pressing delete key while booting, if that doesnn't work, try alt-F10, or Ctrl-F10...there should be a key combination to boot from the hidden recovery partition. If you absolutely can't get to it, you can usually get another set of recovery disks from the manufacturer. (For about $10-20). Also, anyone who has one, can burn you a copy of a Windows CD/DVD. Just make certain it is the same version as your copy of Windows. Once you have the CD/DVD, boot from it, go into advanced recovery options, and First attempt the Startup Repair tool, and see if it will fix iteself. If that doesn't work, the next tool you should attempt to use to repair would be the system restore...this will roll your computer back to an earlier date and time when it was working correctly, provided you have a recovery point on your computer that isn't corrupted. That is also under the advanced recovery options on the Windows CD/
DVD.If you can't get a disk anywhere, you can email me. Write to my username at MSN. (ref Fixya in the subject so it doesn't get deleted when my spam filter grabs it.)

Hello


The Bios should not be your problem and the MBR doesn't have anything to do if you didn't play with Windows installations or with any utility to create an image of your hard drive.

 

To understand where the problem is coming from:

- Ask someone to go to http://www.knoppix.org/ and download a Knoppix CD

- Create a bootable CD from the ISO downloaded

- Enter in your Laptop BIOS settings and change the first bootable device as the CD/DVD

- Insert the Knoppix CD and boot your Laptop

- Knoppix will start and ask boot:

- Just hit Enter

- When Knoppix has finished and it's running you will have a nice graphic interface

- click on the HD icon on the desktop and see if you can see your files, if not you have a bad Hard disk

- Knoppix has also a utility to test the memory too.

 

If you tryied to install another copy of Windows or you made an image using some software like Ghost, you have to:

- boot from a floppy disk (Download and create from here http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm, I suggest Windows 98 SE)

- At the prompt type FDISK /MBR and press Enter

ATTENTION: If you type something different you may distroy all your files on your hard drive
