Re: acer will not open any programs

Your pc should check the system files on boot up and will keep asking until you allow it to do so. If it doesn't run through a system check and just stays at 0% then there is a serious fault either with the operating system or your hard drive is failing. You will need to repair windows with your installation disc as if you cannot get into windows you will need to restore your system. I am assuming when you say you cannot open up programmes, you mean you cannot get to your desktop.

Empowering technology is driving me crazy, it keeps opening itself and interrupting what i was .how do i turn it off? I have an acer

Go to the run box on start. Type msconfig, ok then system configuration utility comes up. If you have Vista, type it in start search. Once its open, check on start up tab, Identify the start up that links that program and uncheck it, applay then restart.

Hope this helps.

My acer 7520 opens with an error reading NVIDIA boot agent 249.0542, then reads PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable, PXE-M0F exiting NVIDIA boot agent.

This error message could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
Reseat the hard disk to see if the problem is fixed.
If not go into the BIOS settings and check if the BIOS can detect the hard disk.
If the hard disk is not detected then remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If the this computer cannot detect it as an external hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. Then the Acer needs a replacement hard disk and Windows installed together with the laptop's device drivers and programs etc.

My hp compaq nc6000 says nonsystem or disk error wont go further?

If you get an error message - non system or disk error and the hard disk is not detected in the BIOS, then you most likely have a faulty hard disk and chances are you have also lost all your data.
If you are desparate to recover your data, there are data recovery companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard disks but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
To get you computer operational again, you will need to replace the hard disk and install Windows, all the device drivers and your programs.
