Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I recently purchased the laptop for college work and after a week of using it i noticed programs like the webcam viewer not opening up when clicked, i wa fine with this until my Network centre decided to do the same thing and i also noticed the bar on the bottom of the screen had disappeard, this left me with no conection to the internet whatsoever!
After endless calls to the dealer and manufacturer ive been advised to make a recovery disk, with the product not having a CD drive i used the cd in another laptop and used hte program to make my 8GB Flash drive the recovery disk alternative.
SInce then i have tried endlessly to recover the Acer using the instructions in the manual providedwith the laptop, the computer seems to just be skipping the idea of recovering and going straight to a black screen with a cursor in the middle (of which i can move freely around the screen) and even when the flash drive is out that is all iget, the same black screen, ive messed around with the priority of the boot up by pressing f2 and going to the BIOS menu thing but still nothing changes.
The system is running on linux also.
I would really love some explanation or even a solution to the problem.
Thank you in advance.
Find a install disk for your os and boot up in it and repair. if you dont have cd rom you can try networking it in or flash driveing it
