I assume that the Acer was working and now it gets this error. This error message can be cause by a few things. please click on this link and follow my instructions to fix this problem :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r6244569-no_bootable_device
Does the splash screen come up? Most of the time if it is your hard drive the ACER splash screen will come up and then a Hard disk 0 error after that. If nothing appears on the screen then you have a bigger issue.
Is there any noise at all (Fan, hard drive spinning)? If so try hooking it to a external monitor to see if there is any movement. You might have a problem with your LCD.
Try rebooting the computer in safe mode with networking...this is usually done by tapping the F8 key while the manufacturers splash screen shows up for a few seconds. Once the multi-boot screen comes up scroll to safe mode with networking and click ok. Once the computer boots up, it will probably be using a generic video driver to show a picture, go to acer's support site and download a fresh driver, the link is below....good luck. when you click the link, make sure you pick what operating system you are using to get the correct driver. click on drivers > notebook > aspire > 5630 > choose operating system.
Boot your computer with winxp disk then follow the procedure. Press enter for install new xp then you see partition delete all partition then create again then install xp in first partition try this 3 to 4 times so that error not comes .you can do it. Let me know if you need more assistanse. Thanks.
Whenever you do get it booted into windows, run the command prompt and in there run "chkdsk /f". That will check your disk for errors and repair them. Yours sounds like a boot sector problem, chkdsk should be able to fix that.
A few things you can do.reinstall os.repair os or checkdisk all of which require xp disk(or whatever os disk )
to check disk.boot up from os disk(xp,whatever)
screen displays install or repair
select repair which then takes you you a dos platform (black screen c:/promt
type in chkdsk (exactly as is)
system will run program and if any errors try to repair.
To repair system:-boot up with os disk
in choices install or repair select install
after diagnose system stsate os already exist install or repair ...
select repair..if you want to reinstall fresh copy choose install instead of repair.
repair does as it says and leaves previosly installed software intact..
install wipes all data and installs new copy which has to be registered again within 30 days.
