Boot manager problem


Actually, I can answer you without knowing the model, because it's fairly common to the Acer Aspire in general. The error you are receiving technically means that there is a drive failure, but the error is erroneous. The problem is, you can try to do the recovery until you're blue in the face, or until the cows come home. You know, until the end of time, and you will still get that error. What you have to do to get rid of the error is to delete any existing partitions on the drive. Just be aware that when you do this, you are deleting the Acer recovery partition as well. But if you have the recovery discs, you should be in good shape.
Now to to delete the partitions is pretty simple. Download the ISO image at the page below and boot to it. It has a bunch of utilities on it that will be available after you boot. You can simply type fdisk and use that to delete the partitions.
Then boot again from the restore discs and you should be all set.

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.

Personal Security unwanted instalation


if you start the system from either the restore disk that came with your system, or if you have the restore partition, press F10 as you are booting up and that will launch the setup in the restore partition, Select complete restore, this will reformat your drive and restore the system to Factory default.

Sounds like your Browser may have been either hijacked, or started a task that it never completed.
Download advanced system care and clean your PC with that to remove any unwanted temp files from explorer. Them run malwarebytes anti malware to be sure any malware is removed, if present and try again.
Both files can be downloaded for free at download.com.

I want to know what INF files are. I have an aspire 3100 and bought it solely for webcamming my grandchildren and every time I TRY TO INSTALL IT SAYS IT CAN'T FIND INT INF FILES. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE...


INF files are simply instructions that tell the kernel (windows) how to use a specific device.
your problem is that you need to check device manager for any problems that it reports. look for any yellow exclamation points or red X's. Try re-installing the webcam drivers.

Yes, you can get a copy of windows or use Aspire's restore disks. I recommend you do a full reformat, this should take care of your space problems and set everything back to the way it was when you bought it.
