. Try pressing F-8 and look for last known good working configuration. If you are trying to reload from CD/DVD drive and it continues to boot into your old windows configuration, Enter your BIOS settings, and change the boot order to CD/DVD and then Hard drive
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.
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.
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 this: 1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer. 2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …". appears. 3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next. 4. Click Repair your computer. 5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next. 6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer. 7. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next. 8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair. OR : try this
Boot from DVD -> setup recov. -> command prompt
<bootdrive>\windows\setup\scripts\bootinst.exe /nt60 all
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.
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.
