    Sorry about not giving all details, toshiba acer aspire 5520 series. I went into Bios, I was unable to do recovery. It won't let me, spoke to someone on phone who stepped me back through bios, and still could not get comp. to do anything, it kept going back to blank screen. It's not quite a year old, I'm looking for receipts to see if there is any warranty coverage on it. Still can't find anything at this point.

Make and model would help. Also how were you running a recovery? From Partition or Disk?

    If it's under a year old then you are under the MFG warenty still... However... they are going to be a pain in the rear (I don't like ACER support procedures at all). Be sure when/if you call them you have your serial number (the long one starting with LXA). But before we do this try the following...




    1. Turn the unit off

    2. Turn it back on (lol)

    3. While it is starting up as soon as you hit that power button press and hold that ALT key while tapping the F10 key at the same time.

    4. This should bring you to ACER E-RECOVERY MANAGEMENT

    5. it may ask for a password... the ACER default password is 000000

    6. follow the instructions and this should go through the system recovery.

    Hope this helps!

Black blank screen Lenovo 3000 N100


You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

How do I reinstall Windows Vista w/o CD


You have to call the customer support of the service provider until they know that it is messed up so bad that you have to send it back. If it is still in warranty, then they will tell you to send it back in a box that they send to you.

Flashing the Bios is a LAST DITCH effort to resolve Hardware issues. You should NEVER flash the bios unless you are absolutely certain it's the correct bios for your computer, also NEVER flash bios from within windows..

There may however be a solution for you, Acer laptop computers with the Pheonix BIOS sometimes has a " flashback" feature, allowing you to revert to your original Bios..

You will need to contact Acer to get a Crisis Bios recovery disk from them. Or ask for further information on how exactly to recover from a bad bios flash.

Blank/black screen at power on


This is hopefully a possible fix. I have encountered a similar problem with windows xp and vista. the fix I found that will eliviate this problem and a startup-reboot-startup-reboot... If you have your original windows (xp or vista) CD lounch it like you would do to do a system install. As the installation starts it will show ask you if you would like to do a recovery using the recovery console, just press ESC and go on. Press the F8 to accept the license. If Windows is not completly broke, it will find the original installation on your hard drie. It will ask if you want to repair. Press the R key and windows will reinstall your operating system, without destroying your software or data. After it is done the system will go to the windows startup screen. You will need your windows product key located on your machine or on the original software packaging.
I hope this will fix your problem.
