Have you tried starting in the 'Safe Mode?'
If not, either F5 or F8 (right after anything  appears on the screen) will bring up a short menu to allow you to choose the boot mode; choose the Safe Mode. This loads only the most basic windows files and will let you do some fundamental checking of the hard drive and Win installation.
If you can get that far, Click on 'Start,' then 'Run' and enter 'rstrui' and OK. This should start the Restore routine.    

If it does, choose 'Restore to an earlier date.' Hopefully you have had Restore turned on and then you will have a calendar with light and bold dates. Choose a date a few days in the past and let it run.
This may or may not put you back in operation.

Got an Acer 4050 from ebay and it goes straight to enter boot password


can you click on f12 before it goes to boot password?
The F12 Boot Menu allows you to choose which device that you would like to boot the computer's Operating System from by pressing the F12 key during the computer's Power On Self Test, or POST process. Some notebook and netbook models have the F12 Boot Menu disabled by default.
If this sounds like your problem then try this:
If this sounds like
To enable the F12 Boot Menu:


  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Press the F2 key to enter computer's BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test, or POST, process while the Acer logo is being displayed.
  3. Press the Right Arrow key to select Main
  4. Select F12 Boot Menu
  5. Press the Enter key
  6. Select Enabled
  7. Press the Enter key
  8. Press the F10 key and then press the Enter key to save the changes and restart the computer.
Note: Not all Acer notebooks or netbooks have the F12 Boot Menu feature. Computers that do not have the F12 Boot Menu feature will not be able to enable the feature within the BIOS. I hope this works for you if not, then the problem is obviously not the boot menu. Go to Acer support for more help

I would contact www.toshiba.com amd speak to the technical department, they are very helpfull. It may be a RAM fault or a hard drive fault but as you have data on the drive, I don't want it to go pear shaped and for you to lose any data.
Hope that helps.

What is the boot up sequence please


You need to go inside BIOS to find out whats the boot sequence. To activate the BIOS Utility, press F2 during POST (when “Press <F2> to enter Setup” message is prompted on the bottom of screen).
Press F2 to enter setup. The default parameter of F12 Boot Menu is set to “disabled”. If you want to change boot device without entering BIOS Setup Utility, please set the parameter to “enabled”.
Press <F12> during POST to enter multi-boot menu. In this menu, user can change boot device without entering BIOS SETUP Utility. Navigate to BOOT page on top.

Hope this helps!

i was able to go on the acer website on another pc and found that if when you turn on your acer and hold down ALT key while hitting F10 that will bring you to a system recovery screen. you can restore factory settings from there. It will wipe out all of your documents and pix but it does fix the problem.

Can't boot up my HP XE4100 laptop

Brand new notebook .. windows then, screen freeze..acer picture


This may require a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows XP Operating system disk with the correct service pack that the notebook has installed (usually XP SP2).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The XP CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.
