I want to format and reinstall windows on my aspire 5315 ive tried pressing f8 on start up and no screen that says boot from cd comes up what else can i try


Go into your BIOS and select DVD/CD rom as first boot device.
Put your System Disc in the DVD/CD rom drive and restart the laptop.

Acer Aspire 5100-5674 won't boot. Keyboard won't work, mouse initializes. PXE-E61 : Media Test Failure then PXE-M0F : Exiting PXE ROM I really need some help, I just bought it. And would really like to...


PXE errors are generated by the network boot ROM. In other words, the boot process is attempting a network boot (your BIOS' 4th boot option), which means that your system was unable to boot from a HDD, CD-ROM, or USB device (the first 3 boot options).

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot:

1.Go to Bios Settings
2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option.
3.Save The configuration

Also verify if your harddisk is detected by BIOS

CANNOT FIND CD/DVD DRIVE ON ACER ASPIRE 5100


Is the hardware listed in the BIOS? When the computer first starts up hit a key to get in the BIOS (Esc, F2 or F10 are most likely). If it's not listed in the BIOS then it's likely a hardware problem. Try checking the connections to make sure it's plugged in and getting power.

If it is listed in the BIOS, it's likely a problem within Windows. Check Acer's website for known issues with the cd-rom.

ACER ASPIRE 5100 DVD/CD ROM IS NOT DETECTED IN BIOS?


My Aspire 5100 not only looses the cdrom but also the hard drive! It sometimes beeps 3 times.. I'd go into set-up (BIOS) and niether the hard drive or dvd would be listed.. As a last resort, I flashed the motherboard bios with the latest version from Acer and so far the problem hasn't returned. I also set the laptop to hibernate after 30 minutes of non use when both on battery or on ac power. Reason? My problem always started when I left my laptop unattended for some time. When I'd return, the computer would be off.. not asleep or hibernating, but off - even though it was set to never turn off in the power settings in windows. When I'd turn it back on, that is when the hard drive and dvd rom would vanish in the BIOS. So as an added precaution, I set the laptop to always hibernate after 30 minutes.. Like I say, so far so good..

BIOS cannot detect DVD rom


That is due to faulty DVD Rom. You need to replace your optical drive.
