Acer Aspire E571, stuck on "ACER" screen

Ok, i know a bit more about computers than most people so i'm not going to be vague like you see normaly.  So, i was trying to dual boot Windows XP and Windows Vista, i already had vista installed so i installed XP ontop of it, now, it booted to XP, so i used Vista's repair CD to make it boot to vista, and it screwed it up, it gets stuck on the white ACER screen with Press F12 and Del. and it won't do anything. in my bios its set to boot from CD-ROM first, then physical harddrive, then external devices, which probably does not help because i can't make an external boot device now. i cannot access my bios or anything it stays there and won't boot any further.

    I fixed it. first i turned it off, i then unplugged the power cord for a few minutes.  after that it let me boot off disks, i booted from the Windows XP disk and when it started i chose to use recovory, i chose my windows XP installation and entered my admin password. after that i entered "bootcfg /add" and i added a boot sector to D:/ and called it "D:/" when the computer started up i chose D:/ instead of "windows xp" and it started up XP, i copied all my important files to an external hardrive then shutdown and booted from the CD again, i did recovory again, and then i formated drive C:/ then i re-installed vista. thanks for your help though.

Acer aspire 5733z not working


Go to the BIOS configuration screen and tell the computer to boot from the DVD first, and hard drive second. Look for the "Repair Install" option n the install CD startup screen. If that doesn't work, you can at least start over with the installation.

I hope you backed up all of the work-related material before you started installation; If not, you may have to make a Linux trial/install memory stick and use it to copy your Documents folder to an external hard drive. Post a request for info on this to the comments if you need to do this (for example, if you wind up formatting the hard drive and doing a clean install of Windows 7).

Blank Screen


Well it is possible to install a new screen relatively easily... It is a bit of a mission, Ya need to get a replacement screen & driver board and do the reverse procedure from removal. A screen can be got from say, Ebay, or the net. Otherwise get a reputable place to do it for you.
