Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
Hi, thx for your help on my problem. However it is no good for me since I can't even get to the point where I can tap F8. I need to rewrite the MBR from DOS and the only file I have is to rewrite the MBR from Windows, which I can't boot.
Have you tried booting in safe mode? Repeatedly tap F8 while booting and you will beprompted asking if you want to enter safe mode then allow it to load;
Furthermore you could remove the Hard Drive and put it into another computer providing it is a matching connection with the other machine e.g. Sata - In the event it is a Hard Drive failure which by the description you have given is a distinct possibility you can send it to the manufacturer for data recovery.
I hope this was of some help ;)

choose to boot on the vista partition and imidiatly press F8 several times to get the vista boot menu.
choose "repair computer"
choose user (and type in password if there is any)
see if there is a option called something like
ACER recovery /factory image / something similar (usually the bottom option)
if there is, click it and start recovery.
if there isnt i would contact acer and have them send me a new recoverysett. (4-6 weeks deliverytime)
