It is a hardware problem.if a blue screen appears on the screen while it is restarted, then try troubleshooting on the code mentioned it.
if no blue screen is seen, then the problem is with the motherboard id SMPS.you might have to replace any one of them.

9 / 10 times that message appears when your hard drive has crashed.

If I were you I would find a 1gb or larger usb flash drive and download and install ubuntu to the flash drive, boot it, then check to see if I could access the hard drive.

If you can't then your hard drive has for sure crashed and will need to be swapped out.

Looks like your master boot record is corrupted or you have a bad hard drive. Without cd drive there is one option but it is not guarantied it will work. You can acctually make USB flash drive bootable but you need another computer with cd drive and an XP Operating System CD. You can google how to make usb flash drive bootable for XP and it will give you step by step instructions. Or you can borow an external cd drive or take it to pc repair store. Good luck.

> after one week

Western Digital warranties the disk-drive to work for at least one year.
If it does not, then exercise the warranty to get a replacement, at minimal cost to you.

Try connecting it to a different PC, to see if your PC's "blue-screens" happen without it being attached.

Are booting the laptop from the XP CD? If so it should just give you an option to delete partitions then format and install starts. If you try installing XP after Vista has loaded it wont let you as XP is older. Cheers from Scott

Hi there
A clue is in the error message you get "hard drive failure" this means the hard drive which holds the operating system is corrupt and will not allow a reinstall, you have to purchase a new hard drive before you can reinstall the operating system and then you'll be good to go.
If the laptop is still covered my the manufacturers warranty i recommend you take advantage of that and send it in for repair, if its out of warranty you'll be able to get one from any reputable PC store.


Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

MY VISTA WINDOWS WONT LOAD


Okay, I think I can help you but I need some more information. I'm assuming your Acer laptop currently has a version of Windows XP installed, yes? And Acer gave you a CD to upgrade your OS to a version of Windows Vista?

And when you mean that you go to your BIOS to access the CD, I'm assuming that you are talking about the boot options menu (selecting the cd drive vs the hard drive or floppy drive or what not) correct?

When you select the CD drive to boot from, what exactly happens? Do you get any error message? Does the computer turn off? Does it appear to try to load from the CD and then switch to your hard drive instead (and load your existing operating system)?
