Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
Hi, I turned my computer on today, and it says media test failure, operating system not found. Please help
It sounds like it could be a corrupt OS, or your hard drive could've decided to pack it in.
Before you panic - (been there/done that). Try to get your system to the boot menu by doing the following:
Turn on your system - once you see the logo, begin to tap the f8 key repeatedly until the boot menu appears. It will give you the option of "Last Known Good Configuration". Select that by using the arrow keys to move the highlight bar up (or down). Press enter - and wait. If there has been a corruption, it may take time.
If that fails, repeat the process and once you get to the menu, select SafeMode. It will probably fail as well but I have seen times when it boots through. If you are able to get into SafeMode, if that works, let me know and we can look at some preventative measures.
Good luck with that
