Question about Acer Aspire 5102WLMi Notebook

Windows XP does not start up after booting of Acer program

For the fifth or sixth time I have the problem that I need to completely reload the Windows program. In the past I had to hit one of the F keys during startup and than could re-load the included repair program. I unfortunately lost the note how to do this. I do not find this in the ACER support anymore.
Anybody out there who can tell me which key combination to hit during startup to re-load the windos program on the Acer Aspire 5102?
Thank you for your help

My bootmanager is gone how to fix I did try windows xp acer recovery disk but nothing help. where can I find the boot manager file many thanks


Did you see a blue screen at all? If so, your HD is bad. No disk will fix it. you would need to reload everything on a new Hard drive. Boot managers are not a simple program that is loaded. They are 'built' by windows and are not replaceable in the way you are asking.

The way to fix this is to replace the hard drive and reload the computer with the original disks.

To be blunt, I would replace the computer unless there is a reason you need XP. XP is not safe to use online anymore.

Remove all USB attached devices like drives. You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC, open case, and remove all RAM. Test one DIMM at time, one slot at a time. Re-install Windows. Clean install works best, but all data will be lost. Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

My acer aspire laptop has a black screen with flashing cursor in top left hand corner. How can I fix this?


When you turn off the power and start the reboot process by turning it on do you ever see anything appear on the screen? If so that means there is no problem with the screen and the problem is probably a corrupt or missing boot file or system file. You will need the operating system disc to repair this. If it's Windows XP you will need to boot from the system disk then get to the recovery console (repair option on the windows directory) and run the command: chkdsk /r This will run well over an hour or more and you will notice the percentage of completion going up and down, but let it run to completion. Then reboot and hopefully you're successful. If not, boot from the system disk again, but this time select the option to Install Windows, once you hit F8 to agree to the license windows will check for any already installed windows operating system. When it finds yours highlight it and select R to repair the existing windows operating system. This option will preserve all your documents, music, pictures, videos and any programs you have.

If windows Vista load the system disk and let it try to fix the problem by running system repair. If it can't repair it then you can get to the recovery console and type "chkdsk /r" and let it run. When finished, try rebooting. If not successful then unless you are technically inclined you will need to seek out a repairman because a good repairman will save your documents, music and pictures then reload your vista operating system.

The partition D is actually a back up partition that has factory image for the original Operating system that was installed in the computer.
factory recovery ( DATA LOSS )
if the computer is booting to windows, then click start and open a folder named as 'acer' listed in ' all programs '.You will find the ' Acer e-recovery managent ' in that folder.You can open it and click allow for the user account controls.Please click 'restore ' for the next screen and the select the first option, 'completely restore to factory defaults '.Follow the on screen instruction to initiate the Recovery.
The Alternate method for starting the Recovery on startup is using the combination of ALT+F10 ( some models its ALTgr ) on startup.Press and Hold down the ALT( Left hand of space ) and at the same time keep on tapping the F10 key till you get the message " Windows is loading files".Just follow the On screen Instructions to start the Recovery.

Aspire one notebook will not completely boot. It


While the system is booting --before the xp logo shows, hold down the F8 key. This will bring up a menu. Choose "start windows in safe mode with networking".
The os will start in safe mode. run a virus scan, defrag and scandisk, then restart the system. If is still wont boot normally, do the same thing then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot. If it still won't boot you may have to reinstall the OS. good luck.

Windows xp virus problem-windows will not boot up


XP Antivirus 2008 is one of the latest counterfeit antispyware that devastates the wolrd wide web. XP Antivirus 2008 usually come up after you installed a video codec that come with Trojan, malware and virus. XP Antivirus 2008 normally generates fake and misleading system popup error messages so end-users will be tricked into purchase XP Antivirus 2008.

This is one of the warnings from the net about this program.

a system restore with disks or a full reinstall may be in your future.... reboot and tap f8 and then boot to safe mode.... does that work ?

Call up Acer and see if they offer some sort of OS deal were you can "buy" a copy of XP or vista on CD from them at a discounted price. Sounds like you need to try to do a fresh wipe and clean reload of your OS.

Otherwise, I would recommend taking to a local computer shop and see if there is any hardware damage or if it just needs to be reloaded.
