Did this start after you upgraded your Operating System, installed updates to it, or performed any type of compression, space freeing, other Hard Drive file related event?

Acer laptop stuck on Windows boot manager


1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

I'm running a Windows 7 netbook- acer aspire one. 32 bit Prossesor- Intel Atom BOOTING ERROR- I press power and the ACER logo pops up (normal) and then: For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller...


This message means that the computer cannot see the hard drive. Unofrtunately, this is usually caused by a failed Hard Disk drive. However, you could try removing and re-fitting the hard drive to see if this cures the problem.

Full instructions on removing and replacing the hard drive can be found here:

The laptop encounters a PCI error and will not boot


Like the Jonas brother said, it's difficult to diagnose this one without actually seeing it. That being said, you can always save some money by messing with it yourself. Personally, I'd probably look at a bootable CD next. You may have to get into your BIOS and change the boot order to reflect the CD first.
If you can get a CD to boot, you've got a problem with your hard drive - although it's probably a software problem and not a hardware problem. In English, that means you'll have to reformat the hard drive and reload Windows. If you don't have a Windows disk, you might try loading a Linux OS. They are free (and far more stable too!) for download. If you need help with that, just post it on this thread and we'll walk you through it.

Boot Acer 3100 Aspire. Shows NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart. Will just go to the same screen over and over.Will not boot at all. Do not have a boot disk.


Remove any 3.5" diskette from the A: drive.
Remove any CD from the CD/DVD drive.
Reboot.

If you still have the problem, then borrow a Windows XP disk.
Boot from it. Choose "repair", not "install".

If the disk-drive is "detected", then "repair" will attempt to fix any file-system errors.

If *NO* disk-drive is detected, your disk-drive has "died".

Sounds like the drive needs to be formatted.

Insert your recovery cd, press a key when it says (press any key to boot to cd) and follow the instructions that follow on your screen.

Acer 4720Z lost vista os


Most likely the hard drive went out, do you hear a clicking noise or loud ticking coming from the laptop?

Does it give you any kind of message like " NTLDR missing."?

Let me know.
