Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
I was downloading an update for Adobe Acrobat and system crashed.I can't get to the windows start screen and after trying 'startup repair" I get an application error(failed to initialize).The repair screen and error message continue to loop. Help
Your startup repair option in Windows Install indicates a hardware conflict. Go to your System Setup in startup mode, by pressing Del, F2 or F10 whichever the hint is on screen during bootup. Once inside system setup, turn off almost everything, disable Speed Stepping in EPower, set monitor off to disable, Standby and Hibernation off as well. Turn off the modem and Network adapter if yo can. Just about everything that affects a device on the laptop. This would also include the Touch Pad if you're using a mouse.
And, in the long run, you may need to do a full Windows Install if the repair option continues to fail. Many of these failures are due to the Virtual Memory file size for Drive C being too low. If you can get into Safe Mode change this setting, right click My Computer, select Properties, go to Advanced, advance and change Virtual Memory on C to a fixed size about 1024Meg for min and max.
Also, should you be low on free space for drive C this could cause the same problem. You would have to choose a Full Install as an Option unfortunately.
In the absence of anything along these lines working, you should be able to choose Restore Acer option (or words to this affect), you would want to tap on F8 while booting, sometimes its F10, but this gives you a 'boot from what source' option, CDROM, Hard Drive or Restore Partition. Choose the Restore Partition and start over from scratch again.
Sorry, but this often happens and you and I have to live with this.
