Acers with windows vista/xp and even 7 have this problem a lot.

To check to see if the drive is not physically damaged: right click on my computer

go to manage

than go to device manager.

Click on cd/dvd drives and make sure there is not a yellow triangle with an exclamation point.
If there is the only way I have fixed the problem so far is to reload the Operating System (bringing it back to factory) warning you will loose all data.

If there isnt, the drive is physically failed.

When I turn on my laptop the white screen that says Acer comes up then that little loading toolbar comes up and does all that. But then it goes to a black screen and only my pointer comes up. What do I do?

The windows files have been corrupted or the hard drive has issues, remove hard drive and re-seat it back into place, now power up the computer, if no change! reload your system with the recovery disc. If you still have problems you more than likely have a bad hard drive, but it is a good idea to have it checked before replacing the hardware.

Acer 3680 wont boot past bios goes to black screen with cursor

Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
The issue you have mentioned indicates a problem with the operating system or the hard drive itself.
The system is not able to load the operating system either due to some corruption in operating system files or due to some fault with the hard disk itself.
To diagnose and fix the problem i will list down a set of steps below. Please try them

1. please restart the system and tap the F8 key on initial system logo.
in the advanced menu select the safe mode option.
login as an administrator
click the search box type system restore
in the window that appears, restore computer to earlier date and time and click next
select a date may be a week or 2 back when system was running fine and click next
follow the onscreen steps

2. In case you are unable to perform the above step or in case it does not work, please perform a repair of windows vista
please click on the below link that has steps with pictures for easier understanding of the process of vista repair
Once done your system should be able to boot backup normally

3. In case not it is an indication of either a corruption with operating system which means that you need to load a fresh copy of windows
below link has the steps mentioned to do the same

(Please note that when you load a fresh copy everything on your system gets wiped off and then you need to reload everything back on)

4. In case all of above fails then its a hard disc fault that would require a physical repir\replacement by a repair technician. If the system is within warranty please contact Acer Tech support for hard drive replacement else you may take it to a local computer repair store.

Please feel free to ask in case you have any queries and i will surely try to assist you in the best possible manner.

Acer Aspire Password for 5315-2077

If you are running Vista, You can System restore from your recovery disk or from the recovery options stored on your hard drive at start up. Restore far enough back as to ensure it was before you applied a password. Hopefully you'll get away without having to wipe an reconfig the OS.

Computer is infected with viruses

Blue screens as a result of infection mean the virus has corrupted the operating system. You can fix it by doing an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Depending on the virus, this may only be a temporary fix. If this turns out to be a temporary fix, then the sure way to fix it is to completely wipe the hard drive, completely reformat using NTFS, and reload the operating system, which I would recommend. If you have any problems during or after the reload, then the virus damaged the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

Windows vista on Accer aspire 5315 reboots over and over

Try starting in safe mode (press f8 on start up) once in safe mode use system restore to restore your operating system to a earlier point.
For XP
Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
For Vista
Start - all programs - maintenance - backup and restore center

Wiped hard disk

Windows XP and Vista should have most of the drivers for the operating system to load. If any are missing after that and your internet connection is ethernet, then you should be able to get the rest of the drivers free from the samsung home site to make your laptop run properly.
