Question about Computers & Internet
My system(Windows Vista basic) was going slow then someone attempted to "fix it" without my knowledge ultimately causing it not to boot up now. I bought an "all purpose" recovery disk and so far have had no luck. suggestions??
Try: holding the power button on the computer to drain any power that may be stuck on the motherboard.
Remove the battery and place it back in
Plug in the charger and try to turn it on
If these don't work I fix computers on the side if those tips don't help.

SOURCE: Acer 5100 Vista Boot up issue
hi, i have had 2 acer 5100 notebooks for nearly 2 years now bolth had failed, short time after warranty was up took me many hours to get them working again.. did acer not put the recovery on another partition on your hard drive? if you open my computer-drive c-then you may see a recovery drive,named acer or recovery. do you have the option at post for recovery mode(push f10)? look for this. other than that you have to buy the recovery disks. or buy an operating system. my favorite phrase comes to mind-don't let an update bring you down. i hope this helps you,good luck!

Have you tried doing a factory reset? this does mean that you will lose any programs / files that were on your hard drive but should mean that you are able to restore the original bios/ operating system.
If this fails you have a couple of other options :firstly take the battery out leave for ten minutes and reinsert , this should reset the system /bios files as mentioned before ( probably what I would do, then go to Sony support website and download bios, drivers etc for your model then re-install original programs as installed by Sony.
If computer still wont boot , connect Via straight through cable , (ethernet type of cable, the sort you use to attach to phone line through modem) to another computer and it should be picked up as an external hard drive , once this is accomplished log on with computer 2 and proceed as mentioned above -- hope this info is helpful. if its any consolation I have had to re-boot a few computers over time and i do not bother with recovery discs any more they dont mean anything to any other system than the one they were encoded for and so are a waste of space for recovering anything !!!! better of backing up files from download folder as install / execute files and buying software through safecart , whenever I have needed to re-install lost software they are most helpful and are usually able to give me my software activation codes back within 24 hours which I then save to a word /office etc document and back up on a data disc for future reference. Sony website has original software for all models since about 1990 so again it is possible to retrieve any system as long as everything essentially is in working order, you are not alone , we have all lost an operating system or too at one time or another ,goes with the territory!! Have fun and be patient , blessings, John
