Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
All was working well with my the new unit I purchased today. Was configuring it to my desires. Uninstalled McAfee Anit-virus that came with it in favor of CA Anti-virus. Had to install the 64bit version of CA anti-virus due to Vista OS. Upon installation, it asked me to restart computer. Now I am in an endless round of auto reboots, safe mode error recoveries, etc... Any way out?
If you can select safe mode when it restarts press F8 function. Select Safe mode. Open the start menu and go to the add remove programs and uninstall any newly installed programs like your anti virus. There was a conflict of your new anti virus and the system. You might have been ask to restart the pC after uninstallation of mc Afee. I f you just installed right away the CA anti virus it resulted to conflict of anti virus controller. So it resulted to Memory dump or blue screen error. To resolve this try to go to the BIOS SETUP and load restore defaults in the system configuration. then reboot.
If still it doesnt work, try to insert your CD installer of your software then try to boot with cd by entering the BIOS set up to boot with CD in the first priority order. When the software is already loaded try to select repair option. do not press enter coz it will reinstall the whole system. Just press "r": to repair.
If it doesnt work reply to me to give you more direction...

Just follow the following option :
1. Verify the windows file by inserting the windows CD in your CD-ROM. -> After inserting CD; just type SFC /SCANNOW in Run or in Command prompt.
2. Restore the windows in the previous date.
3. Repair the windows by booting it with your windows XP CD.
