My Acer m5100 Vista won't boot =(

Thanks for your help. I appreciate it. So, how can I find out if it's a hard drive issue? And if it is, does reinstalling Vista solve it? Or do I need a new hard drive altogether?

Successfully Reinstalling Vista would prove it's not the hard drive and just file corruption, although file corruption can be caused by faulty memory.

Acer 5733z-4633 is stuck in a sort of boot loop. Won't enter bois setup or boot device options screen. Is this a hard drive issue?(it kinda makes a funny clicking noise then starts all over to try


Yes! it does sound like the hard drive is bad, remove hardware to see if you can enter bios and boot device, if yes the hard drive needs to be replaced, if no change there is a secondary problem.

My acer has a blackscreen , will not boot up. A disk read error occured


Disk read error indicates your hard drive has failed. You will have to take it in for service to have a new hard drive installed, or perform the repair yourself.

I have a aspire 6930 laptop from acer it will boot past post but not into windows not even in safe mode it just goes to green bar like windows is starting then blue screen with error stop:oxoooooo7b...


id reinstall vista ! if you want to do this you need to get in to the bios which u press F2 i believe when the comp first starts up when your in the bios scroll along to boot menu u shud see a boot list with your hard drive at the top ,you need to change your dvd drive to the top so itll boot from dvd , restart your computer with a windows vista disc in the dvd drive and i think it shud give you an option to fix your system if doesnt work then definitly do a clean install of vista using your product code . hope this works

Acer Aspire M5100 Vista 64 Bit - No sound, just static


ive had this problem with my machine as well. i had to reinstall then update the audio drivers (i know that doesnt help) but it ended up being my USB wireless adapter that was causing the problems. Once i updated that, it stopped the noise (which was good because i was using my tower to DJ, and noone likes static while gettin their groove on) ... so.. im no comp geek, and my knowledge is average on the subject, but i would suggest checking any peripherals you might have installed on this machine. who knows, ya might just get lucky..

My Acer m5100 Vista won't boot =(


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.
