I think there is some problem with your cdrom drive. Try to clean the cdrom lense with a soft cloth. You will see the lense when you eject the cd tray.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

Acer Aspire AM3100-U3202A ''hard drive'' will not boot up


That could be a hardware failure of some sort, or because you added a new hardware device. The "DMI pool" code has nothing to do with Windows, but is part of Plug and Play. Windows has not even loaded yet. It is the System Board BIOS startup code checking the hardware configuration, and setting system board resources for Plug and Play to use. Go in to the system board BIOS (normally DEL key when first powering on) Look in the PnP or PCI Configuration section, for an entry "Reset Configuration Data. It will show Disabled. Change it to Enabled, and save the new configuration and reboot. BIOS will set it back to Disable after it clears the DMI data and rebuilds it. The first time through, it will take a long time, but after that it should not hang. Unless there is a hardware problem with one of the adapters on the system board or PCI bus.
I have seen CD-Rom drives cause this hang, if there is a CD in the drive. So make sure there are no CD's in the drives when you start up.

Please advise me i have recently purchased an acer Aspire Series Part No. 12200.009 personal computer problem is no sound comes out the unit ---unless i have headfones...


sounds like the cd is not there..open up control panel(behind start button) and find the audio devices or sound settings.

of course, it could be that the sound volume control is muted..look for it in bottom right tray(at bottom of screen) double click on it, and see if it's on mute.

as to the CD/DVD..control panel, system device manager..see if it's listed and has no little marks alongside it.
