Try cleaning the CD itself and the CD drive as it sounds like windows isn't loading properly

    OK I did some research and apparently there's a problem with loading Win XP on the Acer 3515 laptop using a normal windows XP CD.
    I found a solution that seems like it could work though, go to this site

    http://soulpass.com/2007/11/10/installin...

    and follow the instructions there using the "Internet and CD Method", it basically instructs you on how to create a XP Boot disk for the Acer laptop, it also gives you links for the drivers to install the other features of the laptop.

    Hope this helps you

Acer aspire 5600. Did a system restore and the computer would not start the windows programme then stopped trying and comes up with 'ntldr is missing' and won't get past that. Any advice would be much...


Sometimes the only way to repair XP is to reinstall. You do not have to wipe your partition and start over. Just as with previous versions of Windows you can reinstall right over top of an existing setup. This has the advantage of retaining your installed applications, data and settings. You will lose previously saved System Restore Points but System Restore will begin creating new restore points again immediately following the Repair Install. You will need to reinstall SP2 and any Critical Updates from the Windows Update Site. Be aware that a Repair Install will leave your system vulnerable to the Blaster and Welchia worms. Do not go on line until you have enabled XP's firewall first. Then visit the Windows Update Site to patch your system It is always prudent to backup important data before you make changes to XP. There are two approaches. The first one should be used if you can still boot to your Windows Desktop. Simply pop the XP CD into the CD-Rom drive and select Install->Upgrade[recommended]. This will install XP overtop of itself in the same way as upgrading from a previous setup. However if your version is an OEM version then you will not have this option. If you do not see the option to Upgrade[recommended] DO NOT choose New Install as that will either overwrite your current setup completely or give you a dual boot setup. Also if you have an older version of XP and have upgraded to a new service pack you will get a message stating that a newer version of Windows was found and you will not be able to run the Upgrade.

1-Boot with the Windows XP CD and at the Setup Screen press the Enter Key
2-You will be taken to the Windows XP Licensing Agreement. After reading the agreement press F8 to proceed
3-
The next screen gives you the option to do a fresh (clean) install or to repair the selected Windows XP installation. To run a Repair Install Press "R" at this time.
***CAUTION*** if you do not see the option to repair the selected Windows XP installation DO NOT choose the option to continue installing a fresh copy without repairing as that will overwrite your data and cause unrecoverable data loss.
Windows XP will copy the necessary files to your Hard Drive to begin the installation and will then reboot. You will see the message that informs you to "Press any key to boot the CD". Do not press any keys this time just wait a few seconds and the Windows Startup Screen will be displayed. Following this you will be greeted by the Windows XP Setup Screens.
When Setup has completed you should find all of your previously installed apps and settings are intact.

Dell inspiron 6000 will freeze up after using for a few minutes? i have no idea why. i have kaparsky internet security already. what else do i need to check?


try to check memory by booting offline from a boot cd like hiren boot cd which contains a lot of great tools for maintenance , use testing tools and choose one of the RAM checking tools. if it gives you no errors on RAM Blocks, then try to boot from it again and choose mini windows xp, it will load a live light version of windows xp,
play with it and check if your pc freeze or not . if YES then the problem could be in you laptop's CPU or in the cooling system and fans (Doesn't work well) , if NO i suggest to re-install windows OS (the fastest way) or try to restore your system to a previous date before the problem appears (restore point) .

good luck

Probably your system has been corrupted, or you have installed a software that caused your system not to function due to conflicts.

The solution that i find to solve your problem is to perform windows xp repair install, which will replace corrupted files on your system in order for you system to run properly.

Follow these step by step solution on how to perform the Windows XP Repair Install.

You should first check if you have these on your system.
1. A CD/DVD Drive.
2. A bootable Windows XP Install disk, depends on the version of your Windows XP , whether it be SP3 or SP2.
3.Idea on how to boot to your BIOS settings, you can check it using your systems manual or you should see a press button (e.g "Press F2 to SETUP").


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Step by step solution on performing Windows XP Repair Install.
1. Insert the Windows XP installer on your CD/DVD Drive.
2. Restart your system.
3. Go to your BIOS Settings and set your CD/DVD drive boot priority. We will be booting to your Windows XP Install disk to perform reinstall on your system.

* Reinstalling doesnt affect your programs, but will just delete the previous windows xp system files and replace it with a new one.

4. When you are now in the Windows XP Install screen where you can select if you want to install windows xp, go to windows repair console or exit the installation. You should select "to Setup windows XP now press Enter".

Heres the screenshot as a guide.

Press Enter, then when you see Searching for previous windows installation, you should select "R" to repair your installation, if you dont see any "searching for previous windows installation message" then you should check your bios settings.

After the reboot, you should set back again your BIOS to boot from your hard drive. restart your system, also you should prepare a valid windows xp cd key for that because you will be needing it confirm the setup process of your system.

After the reinstallation process, you can now boot your windows xp system nice and clean. :)

Won't boot up. won't turn on.


If your battery has a good charge and you still can't power up, it is probably the internal power supply, although it could be CPU or RAM. Replacement of the CPU or RAM is not to high, but if it's the PS or MB, pitch it/ sell it for parts (after you get your data off it) If it powers up on a charged battery but not AC, it is probably the power jack and might be worth repairing (figure around $100)

Brand new notebook .. windows then, screen freeze..acer picture


This may require a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows XP Operating system disk with the correct service pack that the notebook has installed (usually XP SP2).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The XP CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.

Does your computer make the beeping sounds on boot up. If so, this means that a drive is corrupt and it's not loading the system driver files or is not seeing your hardware to boot up..

Are you running windows xp?

Have you tried running a system repair using your windows xp cd?
That works by putting in your xp cd...booting to the cd....the first window you come too will ask you the basic, agree to terms, press f8 to agree...then to the next screen.

There it will have 2 options...install a fresh copy of windows
Repair a version of windows...choose repair

Allow the repair to finish...and restart....if the repair was successful, your computer will restart normally...

Let me know if this works.....and how many beeps you are getting

Freezing when booting up


This maybe a case of a bad boot sector on the hard drive. On boot up try pressing F8 to get you in safe mode, right click on your 'C' drive>properties>tools>error check. and let it do a disk check. If unable to get in safe mode you will need a copy of Windows to enable you to do a repair by setting your pc to boot from cd in the bios and will ask you to press enter to boot with cd. When Windows has installed all set up files, press 'R' for repair and 'NOT ENTER' as this will install windows again formatting the drive. When prompted press enter when it asks for admin password(as there won't be one). Look down the list for 'Repair MBR', press enter and also 'SCANNOW' as this will scan your drive for errors, press enter. Good luck Your
