Hmm... It sounds like you may need to do go into safe mode and do a chkdsk /r at a command prompt. You could try a System Restore Point if nothing else works... If you need to backup any data and reinstall this is a great OS to do it with:
It will allow you to boot off the CD, get online, and even explore your Vista NTFS Partition.

Hello my son can't remember his code to his laptop acer aspire 3680 can you please help.

Hello Elizabeth
Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer While booting watch for, and.. "Press any key to boot from cd" the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files. "Inspecting your system and loading files". When you get to the Welcome to setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows. Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement Select the option to repair. "If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it" Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation, press R to begin the Repair process. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes. Shortly after the Copying Files the pc will restart itself. During the reboot, do not boot from the CD again, setup will resume automatically. when you see the Installing Devices progress bar(Lower left), press SHIFT + F10. A command console will now open up At the prompttype NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. You now have access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel. Pick the account you need to change and change your password. After you've made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the repair, you will need the product key. Once that is done you should be able to log in normally with your new password.
This is taking advantage of a security flaw in windows, your other option is to reinstall windows overtop of your current installation, or to format and do a clean install.
Good luck, hope this was helpful.

Do not start up, black screen


I'll asume something for this one it might help. Make sure your laptop is completely turned off [No fans turn, screen black, no hard drive light]. When you then press the power button, immediately keep pressing the F8 button on your keyboard. It should then actually display two options after a while :

*Delete restore/resume point and start windows
*Resume restore/resume point

Select 'Delete restore point' and the unit should boot up fine again.

I had a unit that was basically turbo-booting into windows, but the restore point was corrupt and it always seemed it had a 'blank screen' problem.

You can also try to access the BIOS by pressing F2 as soon as the unit starts up to see if you can actually access the BIOS.

If that all doesn't help I suggest reseating RAM.

its showing operating system not found, because the system cannot detect your hard disk.

Open your system, remove and fix back the hard disk, then try again.

Take care.
