Question about Acer Aspire E500 PC Desktop
Thanks for your interest. I have commented but thought i would come to you direct. I have got windows xp home. My pc is an Acer Aspire E500 pentium 4 DDRII. At first it was loading up with just the boot screen then it froze but now it wont even load up that. The power button usually stays lit up blue but it only comes on when I first press it then it goes off and there is a little symbol of a disc and it appears to be flashing in sequence ( 4 regular flashes then a quick flash) could this be what the problem is. Thanks in advance for any help
Can you at least boot up pass the BIOS POST?
If you can try tapping F8 repeatedly, sometimes it will give you choices of boot devices, so just choose your primary hard drive press enter and tap F8 again until you see the Advance Boot Menu, choose safe mode and see if you can successfully boot into it.
Once in safe mode click on Start>Run then type in restore. Anew window will pop up. double click on on rstrui icon.
This will now launch the System Restore window click on the radio button "Restore my Computer to an earlier time" and press enter. A calendar will show you the available dates that you can restore from. Choose the day you know that your computer was stable.
If your computer still wont boot up do the same procedure and choose another date.
