    Had you made any changes to your operating system, at all -- installed a new video driver or something?

    You might consider trying Vista's built-in repair system (I haven't used the one for Vista, but in the past, I've found when I was at that point in XP, it didn't hurt.) Instructions are here:

    What error messages are you getting, specifically? Had you changed anything prior to the problem -- updated any drivers or installed something new?

Windows won't load


Try booting to "Safe Mode" (tapping the "F8" key on boot), or however you can get to your Desktop, click start, right click "My Computer", select "Properties", then "Advanced" tab, then click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery", then uncheck "Automatically restart" under "System Failure", click "OK" then "OK" again and restart your PC.

That should allow you to run without the instant restarting on BSOD, so you can repair/remove Mcafee.

If you have the CD's that came with your notebook, there should be a recovery disk. Insert that disk and see if it solves the problem. If not, than I suggest you reinstall Windows and start from scratch.

Acer Aspire 5100 Wont Boot To Start....


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.

To prevent the computer from freezing up, make sure you are running nothing else while you are trying to burn the disk. You can also change the programs that are starting up. Hit start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, uncheck everything, restart the computer. Then try to burn the disk. Also you can run CCleaner to repair some of your registry.

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.
