Acer 5720-4353 will not boot past sign in window

Had HD scanned for viruses, none found. Possible sector error he says. Any way to work around, or get a restore disk- I had not run the program to create it yet as I only bought it a few months ago. Appreciate anything you could advise.

I get the main acer screen but it wont boot. Just goes to a blank screen with a flashing line in the top left corner, any suggestions?


you possibly have a virus in your boot sector. fi you have access to a different computer with internet you can get a free virus tool from avast to create a boot time scanning disk(dvd) to check and remove. another way is to create a windows 7 recovery disk(dvd/cd) to boot to it and recover your boot sector and rewrite it so the correct boot code. this is done simply by following the startup when booting to the dvd/cd and repair your computer option. another source of your problem could very well be a bad hard drive or loss of data on your drive. i would be able to assist you further with a telephone call if you like you can email me at maranathaenterprises@live.com. hope this helps.

I cannot boot up my computer, it says a disk read error, press Ctrl+Alt+Del.


I hope it's simply a diskette in the diskette drive...
Otherwise, your hard drive may be bad.

If you moved the computer, the power or data cable may have come loose.

Open the case and check the cables. If you find an "extra" power cable in the case, swap that power cable with the one in the hard drive.

I have one of those myself.

Ones you have your files saved on your desktop you will have to use the recovery discs or windows setup cd to get the computer working again. - install windows to it to fix the problem.
