Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

How do I get my Acer 5500 to boot from my uTorrent recovery disc?

I have tried all the vista safe mode options and it continues to boot as usual--which results in a loop: opens configuring stage 3 of 3 updates, shuts down, re boots configuring update, etc.

    Yes I have tried cold booting.  The computer does not recognize the disc in the CD drive; it just opens as always  to the configure update.


    In order to try to cold boot I have to disconnect the power and the battery in order to turn it off.

    Thanks.  I did not get a recoveria disc with the computer from Best Buy.  So I made one from a uTorrent download and set the BIOS to boot from CD ROM.  Booting now takes a long time, but only the configure update loop appears on the screen.  I don't know if my recovery disc is any good.

Do you have your original recovery media for Vista? Sounds like you're going to have to repair the installation.

Acer aspire 5570 AWXMi not booting after downloading something and gives blue screen and restarts some error called TRAP-000006 maybe some more zeros no recovery disc in hand help!!!!


Hi,
As the computer restarts hit F8 and boot into safe mode, if you can get the machine into safe mode then perform a system restore as i expect an update for a driver is conflicting.
Take the machine back to a date before this happened. If the restore was successful and you may think that Microsoft Update was responsible for the system crash it would be a good idea to disable your automatic updates altogether.
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.


Good luck.

I have an ACER ASPIRE 7720 with Vista. On starting the computer I get a message saying "launch start up repair" which tells me I need a Vista Driver CD Recovery Disc. I don't have one nor did it come with...


Hello,

Nowadays the computer comes with the Recovery Disks inside on the Hard Drive for you to Burn on disks. The options changes from manufacturer to manufacturer, but try to bootup in safe mode with F8 key and search on start menu for tools related to the manufacturer computer (ex. On some HP is START | PC Tools).

Check when the computer is booting for options of recovery before windows starts.

Beware, in most cases you can Burn the disk once.

Windows will not boot on acer 5315 notebook


As the unit will not boot at, i am afraid you are going to have to do a recovery which will also wipe any data on the notebook.
To run a recovery make sure it is powered off then power on, as soon as you power on you must tap the left Alt + F10 keys together at the same time, now timing is important and can take several attempts before you enter the recovery manager. Keep tapping the keys at approx every half a second or so and wait for a message at the bottom of the screen which will state " Windows is loading files" then you can stop tapping. A new screen may appear after that which will state " edit windows boot options: for windows setup or it may say acer e-recovery" if this screen appears then simply press the enter key, you will then enter the Acer e-recovery manager which will then ask you "How would you like to restore?" select the first option for a factory default reset, hope this helps.

Try booting in safe mode. you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration.
To get into the Windows Vista Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use yourarrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key. Let computer boot to safe mode and then shutdown. If problem continues then Start in safe mode again.

After you boot to safe mode then go to Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, Advanced tab should be at the forefront. Go towards the bottom of the popup (Startup and Recovery) and select settings. Then in the settings popoup uncheck Automatically Restart. OK and apply everyithing then restart computer. Let me know what happens.

Windows failed to start !...


Hi,
Boot your computer with the recovery CD In the Drive.
You should get the option ** Boot From CD**
highlight click Yes, and overwrite the O/S.
This will re-install windows over your existing version, replacing any corrupt-deleted-missing Files.
