Hey buddy,

Firstly it looks like it its trying to boot a network device then cd/rom after. You will need to enter the BIOS (setup) when the computer starts. Usually you press something like F2, once in the BIOS go to the startup section where it asks for the priority of startup devices.

It will say HDD, CDROM, NETWORK and maybe some others. Make sure HDD is on the top, it usually is but incase it isn't.

If it is on top and still not loading from the HDD (Hard Drive) you may have a faulty hard drive. This isn't good but we have also had the same problem recently with a netbook. If the hard drive is faulty you will need to obtain another one. If you do need another one i will let you know how to recover data off a ******** hard drive.

If its not faulty and it can load off the hard drive but wont it would be a operating system fault. (better)

Let me know where you get to with this and we will take the next step

SOURCE: booting problem in acer 4520

Plug in the power cord and wait a few seconds. Then click the start button again and again until it turns on. It will say windows did not shut down correctly, do you want to start windows normally? Hit yes.
What happened was you ran the battery so far down, that windows freaked out. My wife did this on our 4520 a few times. She thinks the computer is shut down and closes the screen. But it was not shut down completely and it went into stand by mode. Well a few hours later, the battery is so dead that windows crashed out.

SOURCE: i can not boot window vista

Aha!
You have to activate your OS,
On your laptop you have a key for the vista, type that key in, if that dosent work you must call and activate your vista. You do that like this way:
1:) if you have a valied licens you just call that number that appears if you continue when it ask you to use the automated phone system
2:) call that number, type in those numbers you see on you laptop given to you when u get the phone number.
3:) Listen carrefull cos you going to get an actication code, and thats a lot of number, whrite them down so you dont forget them,
4:) type in those numbers you get when you be asked to do that in the activation window on your laptop
5:) continue the boot up, vista will now check to the number you typed in are valied and you will never have to to this again, if you dont format your laptop.

If you dont have a valied licens, Buy one!

Good luck to you M8!
Please take a moment and rate my help to ypu

SOURCE: my acer laptop won't boot pass the acer logo sign.

Try this - go to BIOS (while you see ACER logo press F2 (or other key, it should be shown below the logo)) and select setting called something like "Restore Defaults" or "Load System Defaults" or "Optimal Settings". When it asks "Are you sure", pres Y then Enter. Tell me what happens.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 9300-3716 password

My advice to you is technical. You need to reset the CMOS on the motherboard internally. As for the password in vista unless you know it you will more than likely have to re-install vista or do a systme recovery by using the e-recovery partition that comes stock with ACER computers. I do not advise you to try resetting the cmos if your not technically capable

SOURCE: Hi, I cannot boot my acer aspire 5315 laptop, No

It looks like your hard disk went invisible, and BIOS is trying all alternative boot options before it says that there's no boot device available.
I'm afraid that the most probable diagnosis is that the hard disk is broken; anyway you'll need hands-on service to establish what's wrong and what can be done.

Aspire One N214 Model # ZG5 keeps showing me a Acer screen before informing me that I have a Media test failure and that it has no bootable device. I have no boot disk it asks for, Please help me!


The media failure means either the hard disk has failed and therefore cannot boot up the notebook.
Try reseating the hard drive first, so it makes proper electrical contact. If it still fails to boot up, then go to the BIOS setup and check to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. The BIOS may have a hard disk diagnostic program, if so then run this program to check the hard disk. If the hard disk is faulty, then a new hard disk is needed and install Windows on this hard disk plus the Acer's device drivers and your programs to get a working computer again.

Can't find my 25 character product key


If you are talking about the windows product key there should be a sticker somewhere on the laptop with the product key. If not then it could be on the instruction manual or installation discs that came with the computer. If you do not have those...Acer might have that info if you give them the computer's serial number.

Recovery cd for acer aspire 3000


The "NTLDR is missing" error can sometimes occur when the boot.ini file is corrupt or missing but in your case it sounds like the HardDrive is the problem.

Try the Following:
Start>Run>Type "Cmd" and enter>Type "dir c:" and enter>Type "chkdsk" and enter. Your computer might promote you to chkdsk later Press "Y" and restart you computer

The Acer Aspire series usually have a eRecovery manager than ables you to burn 2 recovery disk which you should have done when you first got the laptop. Since you haven't done that you'll have to buy new recovery CD/DVD
From:
http://www.user-guides.co.uk/asp/product.asp?product=1241&ph=search&keywords=Acer,Aspire,Recovery,CD&recor=1&SearchFor=any&PT_ID=100



OR you can try the following.

Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a restore point that goes back to before your NTLDR problem started.

Please Rate, Thanks.

Hi i have an acer aspire 5720 but the login screen won't come on


Hi.
The Acer Aspire 7520 is a very poorly desiged laptop i also have one which is broken atm.

The best thing you could do is to Refomat and install a fresh copy of windows

You shoud have two recovery disk that you should have burned as soon as you got the laptop.

Put Disk 1/2 into the drive.
Boot up your computer and press ATL+F10 atleast three times.
-Follow the on-scree
n instructions and soon you will be asked to put in the disk 2/2.

At the final phase you will be asked to put in disk 1/2 again...Wait awhile untill everything is install and finished loading and your computer will restart with Facory Defualt Settings.

Please Rate. Thanks

5520 acer


try the f10 or f12 recovery option, manufacturers rarely ship the laptops with disks these days, and there should be an option on boot to make the cd's that you need. If not- you will have to contact acer and ask them how to make the recovery/boot cd's
