The computer is looking for boot information on your DVD drive for some reason.
Do not boot the computer with any disc in the drive, and see what happens.

    Your computer is probably set to boot off the CD drive instead of the Hard drive.
    If this is the case,having any CD other than a windows system disc in the drive would cause it to stall, because it could not find the boot info from the disc.
    You can change this by going into your Bios, hit the F2 key as your machine is booting up,,it should go into your bios settings,,Tab until you reach boot order,,or where you can see where it is set to boot from Cd Floppy or IDE 0 or just IDE,,then change it accordingly until your IDE (Hard Drive) is set in the first position.

Computer won't boot stuck in Error RecoveryScreen won't go any further


You should be able to do a clean install of Windows. Just insert the installation disc and press any key when indicated. Optical drive needs to be the first boot option. Go into BIOS and change it is not.
As for disc, you have to use the same Windows version as indicated on the MS Product Key sticker, because of the serial number.

My aspire 5733 goes to a blank screen when i turn it on


Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and re-seat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Will not boot...only blank screen with blinking cursor. how do I fix it


You have hard drive issues or windows files are corrupted, remove hardware and reseat it back in place, sometimes this will get the hard drive working, if this fails! set the boot order to DVD CD and try and run the recovery disc, if no change! it means the hard drive has issues and may have to be replaced.

Windows wont start up when computer is turned on, at the bottom of the screen, it just says press f for set up or tab for bios memo, then the screen will be blank with just a cursor blinking


If you are interested in solving the problem more easily and quickly. I think you can try this computer boot up suite, a boot CD and several other data rescue tools that help get your PC going even if Windows won't start or computer won't boot up at all.

Shut down the laptop, make sure that no light is lit up. Before booting it back up, press and hold the F12 button. It will lead you to boot options. Open up your DVD drive and insert Disc 1 of recovery then make sure you select the ODD or the dvd drive to boot up. This will start the recovery process.

Other models has Icons for boot options. Make sure you select the single disc option to boot the ODD.

Hope this helps.

Take the floppy disk out of the drive... this sounds like the classic error when the boot order includes the floppy disk first, and a blank or data (not bootable) floppy diskette gets left in the drive.

There could be another type of drive set as bootable. CD's and DVD's don't normally do this - they usually cause a prompt "press any key to boot from CD..." or similar.

You could go in the computer setup and set the hard disc drive to be the 1st in the boot order and also solve this problem.

Otherwise could be your C: drive got damaged somehow. Virus or otherwise.

Check disc makes the screen go blank


The disc check stopping and going to a blank screen, indicates a bad sector in the hard drive, and the drive will need replaced. If you can still use the machine by skipping the check disc, then you need to back up any files that you want to keep, eventually the hard drive will fail completely, if it hasn't already.
