Question about Computers & Internet
I have a relatively new, high-spec Acer Aspire 8920 laptop:
- Intel Centrino Duo 1.8Ghz
- Several Gb of memory
- 2 x 150 Gb HDD's
- NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GS
- MS Vista
- Blu-Ray, 18" screen, 5.1
The problem that I have is that I shut down the laptop as usual (no shady downloads, no dodgy website visits, just reading the BBC News website) one night. The next morning I couldn't log back on.
Originally it would take a bit longer than usual to lad (the Vista green bars), but eventually it came to the log-in screen. The issue here was that when I went to click on my profile to type in my password (or use the finger print reader) the user boxes would vanish, but the log-in background would remain - not loading, nothing.
I tried restarting a few times, until I got even less than the user log-in boxes: a black screen with just a movable cursor (Ctrl+Alt+Del didn't work, but the Caps and NumLock did). I would get the same result when I tried to go into Safe Mode.
That is when I tried to do a complete recovery via Alt+F10 when the Acer boot screen shows. This is something I have done previously when software I had, conflicted with Vista and screwed everything up. The agonising problem this time however is that when I do Alt+F10.....I just get a flashing cursor in the top left hand corner.....nothing happens.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how to work around this issue? I haven't deleted the secret partition or installed any rogue
Looks like a problem with the laptops harddrive. Since its a latest model on the block,There may be some glitches in the laptops setup. I believe its stil under warranty I would recomend you to contact your local Acer helpdesk.
