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!

SOURCE: I am unable to boot my Sony VGN-NR220E laptop. When I attempt to Restore Complete System, I get errors 305:64, 319, 320, and Task Failed with Error:-1. Any suggestions?

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

You may have to do a Full Factory System Recovery from your Recovery Partition. Before you do anything, do ALL the Windows and Acer Updates, rebooting when asked. Post results.

Computer very slow ,won't print,forever to load pages, have corrupted files


Several things can slow down the computer: overheating, spyware, not enough RAM etc. If you know for sure you have corrupted files were they corrupted by a virus? You may need to reinstall Vista.

Is it slow when you boot up in safe mode? To boot into safe mode hit (usually) F8 while it is booting up. Let it completely boot into safe mode and then reboot again. Now is if it is behaving better.

To get rid of spyware download the free Spybot Search & Destroy from the net, run the update and then run it to dectect and get rid of the spyware. Spyware tries to send info which can slow down everything.

Overheating - does it feel hot? Is the fan running and pushing air?

If it worked fine before it is unlikely you don't have enough RAM. Windows itself needs at least 256mbs to run well without running other problems.

Again if you know files are corrupted, if they are windows files, you might need to reinstall vista.

Windows xp has been installed over windows vista home basic. How can I recover vista and delete xp?.


I hate to tell you this but your only option may be to take out both programs and then put vista back in. If you haven't already, you may want to back up all of your important data first before attempting this. Good luck.

HP dv9700 was working fine. Re booted after it froze and now it's super slow. 20 min for password screen to come up. HELP!!


If it is extremely slow, then what has happened it alot of windows has corrupted. If you have your recovery disc, the simplest method is to stick in the first disc and reboot to it.

Fix the boot sector with it.

Front wheel noise


Does this knocking noise mostly happen when you are turning the car? If so this is caused by a worn CV joint. It's not an expensive fix, but I would rather go to a mechanic than attempt it without prior knowledge of how to repair this. I hope this helps.

what  You can  do is search the internet for a Vista Ultimate Prodct key
