You'll need to setup the Acer laptop to boot from CD-ROM. Push either the F2 or F10 button when booting your laptop and it should bring-up the configuration management interface. Go through the options and confirm that Boot From CD-ROM is at the top of the list on bootable devices.

Next, you'll need your original Windows XP CD that came with the Laptop. Put it in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot your laptop. You will be given two options: 1) Re-install Windows or 2) Repair the existing Windows Installation. I recommend that you repair the existing Windows Installation as this will not destroy and data or device drivers that are install on the laptop.

Good Luck!

My pc wont boot up normally, it has a blue screen show up but then it goes away before i can read it


The blue screen of death BSOD is set to auto-restart after an error you can change the registry to prevent this not sure if you can do this in safe mode but its worth a try you will at least be able to see the error.

Its a good idea to use MemTest on a boot CD to check your RAM for errors first then restore from an old image.

How can I install Winxp on HP pavilion DV5 laptop ?


You're Hard Drive may be dead. If XP is starting to install and then it goes to the Blue Screen of Death, that's most likely your problem. There's a slight chance that you're power inverter has a fluctuating power level that is causing a disruption, but that's very unlikely. Have you done any tests with any boot CD's to check the hard drive's function?

Hello I have an acer aspire 5535 and it keeps


The complete solution to this fault (Acer 5535 keeps crashing under vista) is to use Windows XP instead of Vista. Set up a Dual Boot so you can CHOOSE to load XP or Vista each time you turn on the laptop. I've put XP on my 5535 and it's SO much faster and seems perfectly stable now - no crashing at all.

A full video showing how to do this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdfU9TXIAd4




Once you've done this you won't have any problems with the laptop anymore.
This is a perfect solution to the crashing problem!

My Acer Aspire 5100 is messed up ?


I had a laptop in my shop recently with the same problem. If you moved the machine at all it would blue screen. The problem was a connector on the motherboard that had came loose and was shorting the system out. I had to tear the machine completely down, and it took me hours to find it. With that said, you have a short somewhere on the board, whether it be a loose connection or bare wire, and it would be in your best interest to take it to a professional to find the problem.
