My Acer m5100 Vista won't boot =(

I've had my computer since last Christmas worked fine until a month ago. It got some kind of virus after my Anti Virus expired. Windows Defender notified me of it, I downloaded another Anti Virus program and got rid of it. Next time I try to boot up it turns on.... and that's it. I can get into F8 and various other F buttons. Now it goes straight to system recovery options such as system restore and other things, I try to do the complete system restore and it say Cannot complete, corruption in (C:/). I called Acer and I still had warranty at the time but they won't cover a backup Vista cd. Of course it didn't come with my Acer, which is ********. However you need a credit card or debit card to order the cd, which I have neither. With today's economy, I'm a struggling 21 year old bartender, I can't afford brand new Vista. So now my $600 computer is worthless. =( I'm not even going to ask if anyone knows how to help me because I'm sure with my luck the only thing to fix it is new Vista! But if anyone has any tips on what I should do let me know. Thank youu<3

It may actually be a hard drive failure as the message indicates - either way you will need a Vista disc if you are re-installing or installing to a new hard drive.

Why is adobe flash player crashing everyday?


Quite often you may have to do the removal and restart your PC. Once you have done that, check your registry to make sure you have removed any traces of flashplayer. Before you edit your registry, make sure you back it up first. Should something go awry, you can go back and recover to the back up registry file. Also make sure you do one product removal at a time and check that the reinstall removed all pieces.

I recently ordered a battery for my acer aspire 5517 lapptop because my laptop had suddently stopped working and everyone said that it was the battery, I ordered the battery and that was was not the probem...


Hi

If the computer was purchased from a shop or as a new item last christmas then i would almost
deff say that you have at least a 1yr warranty on it hopefully your children has still got some kind of
proof of purchase so that they can go back to where they bought it from

As for the battery its worth contacting the seller he may well take it back as it hasnt fixed the problem that you had

good luck

Acer Aspire 7520 doesn't start up!


There should be a F key option at start up during the bios side of boot up. Look closely and quickly at the screen when starting up. You should see on that says retstore maybe.

if not just press all of the F keys skiping the ones listed for start up options and bios option.
