went wrong I have to unplug it for it to Shut down and if I get to start page
which is not often and click on something for instance computer it comes
up as a box with nothing in it. This happens with most of internal programs
Now I have been waiting an hour for it to shut down unplugged.I have started in safe mode sometimes but the same thing happens. My
internal cd player will not start the recover cd. I doubt anyone can help me
but maybe there is a computer genious (sorry about spelling)
By the way it is a 1505E laptop with a vista system.

    I have tried unplugging and reconnecting. This model does not have a burner and that is why I
    bought the usb one. I cannot get the internal one
    to work now, as I would like to restore everything and see if that fixes the problem?
    I hope you can help me at least get the thing
    back to normal even if I will have to return the
    add on CD Burner.

Shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A symantec recovery application(PC Restore) window will start up. just follow the instructions on the window.

To access the same recovery within windows.Type c:\dell\utilities\dsr\ and run Boot_DSR.exe. Then click YES and the system will reboot into the PC Restore without having to press any keys.

But if your HDD has already been reformatted and the recovery partition for has been deleted, your only option is to reinstall windows from a Microsoft Windows XP installation disc.

Because the software is not original,, you must install it with an ORIGINAL SOFTWARE,, and additionally keep the license fix for you to have a secure software

First, Remove the CD Drive. Some CD drives will go bad or be bad out of the box in where they constantly try to look for a cd because the laser is damaged or broken.

This consumes 100% of your processor and may be causing this issue.

Please remove it and try to boot again and see if everything works.

Did the CD drive come with some kind of install CD?

Obviously you cant installit as the cd drive doesnt work, but you may be able to hook up an external drive or find the drivers online and install them seperatly first, then hook the CD drive up and see if it works.

If the Drive is just bad, send it back and order something different, or just order a regualr one for a desktop, but external with a USB connector so you can do it that way and save the headache.


Let me know what happens and good luck.

Hi, 
this laptop should come with a CD burner, is this a internal drive you have pruchased or usb?
There is a problem with reading the drive most likely and it freezes the computer, try unpluging it and reconnecting check connectors also.
this is just a start so report back to me, Thanks.

: I bought a Acer One Netbook model AO751H-1948.


to tell u the reality the recovery disks is of no use as per my openion.
as they cant reload the OS in case ur machine crashes....so just have a WinOS CD from which u can reload OS again in case there is any crash,
the recovery disks do work but they wont help you in case you need to reload the OS again.
So just buy a WinOS if ur machine came with preinstalled OS
this is my experience and personal openion, the rest of the decison is left to you.

Windows wouldn't load.


always choose from the Up -down arrows the last good known configurations ..and press enter to start windows...it was probably a system crash ..or just a protective shut down from a blue screen error..those happens probably its time to reinstall your system cause it has too many issues...but usually it isn't that tragic if you just unplug or switch of from power....and restart ..but if the problem persist ..you have to reinstall or at list to run restore with a boot from cd....cause it might have system files deleted by the antivirus ..or other mistake ... anyway ...the first three otions ar efor other porposes (safe) but any of the other two ...will work just fine...just press enter ...if it doesnt work ..it mean its damaged and need reinstalation ..
