Hello,

Remove the media card while booting.

If there is no media in the card reader, press F8 after the laptop beeps during boot and this should give you a Safe Mode boot screen, choose Safe Mode and then your default OS listed. After you get your desktop, restart the laptop.

If when you press F8 you get a boot from what screen, choose your hard drive and then immediately press F8 again to get the Safe Mode boot screen.

You need to either remove the flash media or use Safe Mode and then restart to reset the Boot Ini information script.

Let me know if this works for you or not, as we may need to take another measure.

Regards,
Worldvet

    Hello,

    Thanks for rating, so many people don't bother to do that and hand out any rank for the suggestions we take the time to offer.

    What was the problem and what solved it?

    Thanks,

    I'd really appreciate your changing your rank of my initial response. You can do that. I know it difficult to have a piece of hardware that has failed, but I got you back to your Desktop and you have enough know how to disable it in the Device Manager. That's a good thing.

    With your capability to do something like that on your own, we may and I emphasize may, be able to sort this out. But, on the other hand, when hardware fails, and on a laptop it can be a real problem.

    When you chose to disable your card reader, what did you do to effectively determine it was the card reader and not the card or a failure of the hardware and not the driver?

    Thanks,
    Worldvet

    The reason for the hang was only that the media card is being treated as a removable hard drive, that's how the BIOS reads it. Since it is not bootable the way it was, removing it should and did allow you to boot up when you removed it.

    You only need to go into System Setup during prePost boot and change the Boot Order so the removable media card is out of the loop prior to the hard drive.

    You can format media cards so they are bootable, but normally you don't want to use the Windows format tool. We techs take a Wn98 bootup disc and copy the contents, hidden and all, over to a media card. Then we put diagnostic tools on the media card like **** Anti Virus which will scan without windows running and catch boot sector and bios viruses.

    So, it shouldn't be the reader, just the media in the reader.

    I hope that answers your problem and if not let me know, there may be a firmware update for your media reader that could solve this issue.

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.
