Re: Load Error

This message normally relates to norton go back corrupting the master boot record, i have had a few occasions of it, you will need to set your laptop to use the cd drive as first boot device (press F2 or Del on start up)in the advanced cmos settings, save and exit. Insert your windows cd in your drive and boot up the notebook and when prompted press enter to boot from cd and when windows installs the system files you will have a choice to press 'R' for repair or enter to install windows, if you press 'R' you will have to choose the operating system, just follow instructions and then if a password is required just press enter and then in the next prompt type 'fixmbr' and press enter, or if you choose install windows will see you have an operating system installed and ask if you want to format and install or repair system files.

Bios utility

BIOS Setup utility?

Dell laptop?

Lot of information here.......let me see if I can sift through it.........

Post the model number in a Comment.
The model number can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

As soon as you turn your laptop on, watch for the Dell logo screen.
WATCH the bottom of the screen.
What key does it state to press, to - enter BIOS Setup?

Write it down.
If Windows loads let it load, and run a few minutes. Then turn the laptop off normally.

THIS time AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on that BIOS Setup key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

You may hear beeps. Those are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it. Ignore them.

This will get you into the BIOS Setup utility.

If Windows doesn't load, press the CTRL key, and ALT key, and DELete key, AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart your laptop, and start tapping on that enter BIOS Setup key.

So i bought an ACER ASPIRE ONE D255 red slick color laptop recently, now it's only second hand but it works fine. i checked the audio, video and it's ok. i have two problems: -when i would try and play...

Regarding the unexpected errors on playing games like solitaire or minesweeper on your D255...
As it is second hand, there may be hardware or software problems or both. Software problems can be eliminated by doing a restore of the notebook to its factory image and settings as follows...
1. power off the notebook completely and then power on again
2. during the start-up, press Alt key (to left of space bar) and F10 key together repeatedly
3. wait several minutes for Acer eRecovery to load
4. after loading eRecovery, use the up and down cursor keys to select restore type.
5. following is from the initial screen for Acer eRecovery Management (V7.0.10)
Select Restore Type
[>] Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults
Restore your PC to factory default status.
All data on C: drive will be deleted.
[>] Restore Operating System and Retain User Data
Restore only the operating system of your PC to the factory defaults.
Files from your user accounts will be transferred to C:\backup.
This option will not remove persistent viruses or malware.
[>] Exit

Regarding WiFi problem...
1. may just need to turn on the WiFi by pushing the slide switch for it at the front right of the D255
2. you would do this after restoring to factory defaults above to ensure no software problems....

Computer will not boot up, only goes to the windows error recovery page, options to start repair or windows normally, none work it goes back to the same page...

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things
working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps

Windows will not load up white acer screen comes up then 2 beeps and white writing on black screen shows various errors

Use the windows CD if you have it.

Start the computer and enter the BIOS menu. Change the 'boot priority' or 'boot order so that the CD drive is before the HDD. Save your settings and restart the computer.

Enter the windows CD and press a key when prompted to load from the CD. Windows has a series of utilities that may (or may not) assist you in sorting the various error messages that appear on your computer when booting.

I hope this solves your problem : - )
