Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
Windows process comes on. Then goes to picture of acer notebook.
Windows not loading. ?? Next, black screen then asks to enter last known configuration. no choices work.
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.
