Try this. While you are in Windows click on Start>programs>accessories>system tools then click on system restore. You will be asked to choose a date, choose a date before this started happening it should reset your computer to that date. In the meantime, yes, you need to get a copy of your operating system from www.microsoft.com so you can fix problems in the future.

    Yea, without the Windows disk your options to fixing it are kind of limited. You need four files copied over to your C:\. These are the files that boot you up and load the Windows OS. They are NTLDR, BOOT.INI and NTDETECT.COM and NTOSKRNL.EXE. They are on any Windows disk. If you know someone who has a Windows diskk you could copy those to a CD, boot up and then just copy those files to your C:\. But honestly your best alternative is to get Microsoft to overnight you a new Windows disk.

Sounds like you have a corrupted Windows Update. Unfortunately if safe mode is not working, then your only option is to re-install the OS. Usually Acer laptops these days don't come with recovery disks. Instead they have a recovery partition built right in to the hard drive. Check in the manual for the hotkey to press to start the system restore when the system is booting up.

Windows is corrupted beyond repair, you will have to reinstall it and return the laptop to factory condition. Use the recovery disk that came with the laptop when you bought it an follow the instructions from the manual to the letter.

My Acer aspire one wont start into normal windows, only safemode


Did your system come with any software? I know when I bought my aspireone it did not. However, You can purchase a thumbdrive with at least 4 gb of space and if you have a copy of windows xp of the same version as that which is loaded on your aspireone (should be windows xp home edition) and you can use a program like magicISO to create a copy of the windows xp cd onto the thumbdrive.


Hope this helps, and I would be more than happy to give you more specific support as needed.

Good Luck!

Can get the aspire to boot to windows


try F8, that's usually safe mode. press it like once a second as it's booting.

what's your specific problem-- cant boot windows?

can you try putting a windows install disk in and choosing "repair" when it boots? (you want to make sure you dont format your drive though, repair wont do that usually if youre careful)

Safe mode with networking


Re-install windows.
Being a new computer it should have come with recovery discs.
Put it in and restart the computer and follow the prompts.
