Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ vgaoem.fon it says I can hit "r" on the first screen after putting in the original set up CD-ROM which I do not have... so what do I need to do?

I believe this is a double post. I answered the other post too.
Follow the prompts carefully, you may or may not lose your data.
At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 (at the same time you would press F2 to enter the BIOS) to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery.
· The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD.
· The password by default is 000000 (6 zeros) and it is displayed when you are asked for the password.
· Users are able to change the password in this mode for eRecovery only.
· The system can recover from the hidden image on the hard drive (PQService partition) or from CD/DVD media.
· It is possible to reload from the factory style CDs/DVD or the snapshots that the Windows version of eRecovery creates.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Aspire 3000 fan not working


Most fans run on 12volts DC, remove the fan and connect it to a 12volt power supply, if it spins freely then it is OK and the fault is with the laptop, if not replace it.

When I power on my Acer 5100


I have an Acer Aspire 5100--keyboard, USBs and Touchpad all quit working at the same time. Boot up is OK, but obviously, trying to resolve this with anything other than the CD/DVD is pointless. Also, Caldera bootable CD Bios flash indicates missing USB Drivers, Firewire fails to initialize, and CMOS sumcheck is bad. Any ideas, anybody? Or maybe a solucion that has worked for you?? Pretty please, I'd hate to have to spend a third again the retail price for a new motherboard, 'cause that's what I could spend on a beauty of a new desktop from from HP....hehehe.

Upgrade hd on laptopp


The easiest way is to remove the casing under your laptop and see what make your drive is, but any make of laptop hardrive sould be ok. Sometimes the hard drive may be held in a cradle so you will have to remove it if this is the case and use it with the new hard drive. A problem comes when you probably have the Acer backup/restore folder on another partition(which sometimes includes Windows, as you don't always get a hard windows cd rom),on your current hard drive, so make sure you have a Copy of Windows otherwise You'll have to purchase another Windows installation disc, or clone your drive with something like Norton Ghost.
