Question about Acer Aspire E500 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Pc not starting up

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.

"NEVER GO BACK TO MORE THAN 30 DAYS UNLESS YOU ARE OUT OF OPTIONS"


Hope this solves your problems don't worry this is just the 1st solution there are many more.

Can you downgrade from vista to xp on an acer t180?


Of course you can.
The only concern would be drivers, but all drivers that exist for Vista exist for XP as well. Just go to Acer's download page (link) and download all necessary drivers before you downgrade. (this is especially important for your Chipset and LAN drivers, so you have them handy when you reinstall.

The site is a little it confusing, but after you chose "Desktop -> Aspire -> Aspire T180", you will see a small drop-down menu, where you can choose your operating system and your language.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Installing XP/downgrading from Vista


you can not install under windows environment if it is a down grade. i thought maybe that is how you are doing because you said when you click intall...?? you have to boot your XP home from the cd drive and there you follow the instructions on how you wanted it installed. in XP series, you only get to use the mouse when windows is almost ready for intallation. but initial setup is in DOS mode only.

Original boot discs


I'm afraid, you can't install XP home over XP Pro; it could be done the other way around. you'll have to  backup your important files then format your drive and restart from scratch.

if you have 2 partitionon in your HD e.g C: and D:
you can copy all your important files in the D:\ drive and just format and install XP home in the C:\ drive.
