Hello my laptop keeps saying no operating system found


This is a problem with recognizing your hard drive or the Operating System installed on the hard drive. Put your Windows 7 or Vista CD into your drive and restart, booting to the CD drive. Try to repair your startup problems. If this does not work, you may have a hard drive failure.

Acer 5050 keep getting error 0200 and says operating system


Hi, error 0200 it's just a generic code which the people from Acer dont even know. It's defenitely has something to do with the hard drive. I suggest you remove it (it's easy) and connect it to another computer and backup your data. That code could mean a "deleted partition" or Master Boot Record failure (software related) or something inside your hard drive (hardware related) so first do a backup like it told you and then try reinstalling the OS. If you still have the problem download some software on the internet such as mhdd which can test the hard drive to make sure but please backup as soon as you can. Dont try to use "chkdsk" or any tools BEFORE you backup because they stress the hard drive and can make things really difficult later to backup. They might even damage the hard drive. I hope this helps.

Operating system not found


That means that either the hard drive is not connected correctly, or that the hard drive is formatted and as a result is blank.

Check the connections to your hard drives inside your computer. Otherwise call the Geek!!

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot up


ooh...no operating system. not good. ok..can you boot from CD? if that works, and it asks you to reformat the hard drive, STOP. Take the hard drive out, and then GENTLY reinstall. Maybe that will work. HD's can fail on laptops, just by a series of vibrations or shocks to the case.

got backup for your Acer?
