Question about Acer Aspire Z3100 (2771498) 21.5 in. PC Desktop
I've gone thru this multiple times. Not trying to save or fix previous OS. A clean install, still hangs at "starting services". actually it's hung there for a month while I dealt with other things. There's got to be a way to kick it out of this hang and see where and why it is halting. This is an all in one that a customer gave me when I couldn't fix it at his home. Now it's mine, I'd like to get it working.
The first place I would start is looking at the Hard Drive. If the Hard Drive is bad then it can cause a failed install. You can also run another reinstall. Every once and a blue moon a fresh reinstall will not install right and you have to restart.

I just recently have reinstalled window XP Prof on Acer Aspire T180 with Window Vista originally. Every hardware works fine. I downloaded all the drivers for Window XP from Acer website. However, the PC just keeps hang up on me after 2-10 minutes after boot up. I have to Power cycles it to get it starts again. Any helps will be appreciated. Thanks

The cause of this problems is a corrupt boot files, Settings for hard disk drive are not correct,Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue, Boot devices not set properly, BIOS corrupt or misc. hard disk jumper setting not set properly, Connections loose or disconnected, Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware.
Note: Try this first. Check the cable setting of your hard disk in the BIOS. try swithching it to IDE, SATA, RAID. save your seetings and restart your computer.
if problem still exist... Follow this steps..
Step 1: If you have a USB stick with capacity of 4Gb and up or another hard disk... try installing a fresh Operating System in the USB stick or in the extra hard disk that you have.. after you install.. boot to bios and set the Primary boot in the extra hard disk or Removable Device (USB) save your settings and restart.. your computer will start normally booting the windows in your newly installed extra hard disk or USB stick. when you are in the Desktop, now try accessing your old hard disk and copy your files.. after you backup your files to the new installed hard disk. go to step 2.
Step 2: Turn off your computer... uninstalled the newly installed hard disk or USB.. after you uninstalled the hardware.. turn on your computer and reinstall your Operating System again. if the problem still exist go to step 3.
Step 3: if the problem stil exist. i think ther is something wrong with your hard disk.. try installing the OS again in second partitioned of your hard disk.. create first partition, then second partition. then installed your OS in second partition... if the problem still exist and you cannot go to windows desktop.. maybe your hard disk drive is damaged...
Hope I Can Help

Use this link http://files.getdropbox.com/u/747181/FLASHCD%20ACER%20T180%20R01-B4.ISO
Thats a bootable cd image that i made containing the latest bios for your board (R01-B4) and a flash utility. This bios has been modified to include overclocking options and extra features which are not in the standard bios!
Burn this image to a cd and boot into the DOS Prompt. At the prompt type the following
awdflash.exe 61AO427.bin /py /sn /cc /r
wait for it to finish reflashing the bios , then eject the disc and restart.

Enter BIOS SETUP.
Use "Load Factory Default Settings".
Reset the boot-order to floppy/CD/Disk0.
This will force a "full" DMI update.
Watch for the computer to spin the floppy,
and then spin the CD, looking for "boot" records.
If it does, then the DMI update has _COMPLETED_ and the "boot" process is starting.

The error your getting means leaking memory,, replace the rams and it will complete restore..
NTLDR is part of the booting system of the computer..basically the computer cant find the file..
Contine with the system recover after you change the rams,, you'll be fine..
