I have an additional question to the one I wrote before about trying to wipe clean my computer-- I searched through the manual that came with my Acer laptop. There was a section that talked about reinstalling the software
that came with the computer without recovery disks. It said to press F2
at startup and check to see if the Disk to Disk recovery was enabled
(which it was). Then when the computer restarts press Alt+F10 at the
Acer logo startup screen. I pressed it and either get repeated loud
beeping noises or I got an imput screen that has information that looks
like this: note all backslashes from "edit" to "HD" are reversed-- idk how
to type them:
Edit Windows boot option for: Microsoft Windows Vista Path: /Windows/system32/winload.exe Partition: 2 Hard Disk: 66306936
Is there any way I can use this to restart my system from the default settings when the ALT F10 only gives me this screen?

Re: Reinstalling Vista and Acer Tech Cont.
I contacted you earlier about this. Sorry for the delay. You can use the information to recovery your hard drive if you have encrypted the volume by using BitLocker Drive Encryption and you know the password. To be honest, I have only seen this error in enterprise version of Vista, Server and 64-bit os and most of the time, I have ended up having to reinstall the os from a cd because the disk was too damaged to recover the data.
If you need more information about this, here is a link. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928201 I do hope this can help you. Hopefully another IT pro has encountered this one and could shed some experience on it. Good luck.

I have had a lot of luck with Puppy Linux. Download the ISO, burn it to a CD using ISO burning software, then boot into the CD. From there, you should be able to browse your HDD and copy any files you want to a USB drive. I would suggest wiping and reinstalling your operating system after that.
That means the start up files on your computer are already corrupted. You may need to reinstall the operating system. You need an operating system disc for this to work.
Warning: Reinstalling the operating will wipe out everything on the hard drive, so if you need some help in backing up your files, either buy an external enclosure and back up the data on your other computer, or contact a local technician.
well mybe your system slow for the fallowing reasons your brother never cleans his cache two try a disk scan and a defrag three reboot your system the nice things about these pc is that you have the option to reboot to factory condittions I have the same pc and I have not kind of slowing issues with it but please this computer is made for vista only not xp cuse you wireless will not work with xp hope this helps if you need help rebootin let me know you can email me at email@example.com thanks bye luis
I had the same problem with my neices Acer 5100...Went into safe mode, it loaded the drivers and sat that for what seemed forever...almost like it was hung up....I had a few things to do...and a couple hours later, it finally booted into safe mode.
I was able to save her files, but ultimatly ended up wiping everything out because of the corrupt files.
On another Acer, the same hang up "unable to boot into safe mode" even after a long period of time, and that Acer was a total loss..had to format...
I presume nothing was saved to a CD? i.e. her gsce files?
Doing a factory restore/reset will loose everything.
Try to boot into safe mode and allow it to boot up...see if it eventually comes up...I will keep reading for a solution other than the two here...and will post as soon as I find one... Unfortunately, Acer do not have a good fix for most of their computer problems....
Something must have changed...either you installed some software and it changed your ntldr file...or you removed a shared file. If the computer was given to you..and there's nothing on it that you need...I suggest doing a clean install...wipe everything out and start from scratch. This way, you have the computer set up the way YOU want it..
If there are no important files that you need...a clean install sometimes is the best avenue of defense...yes...it does take time to install (an hour or so)...but Acer has all the drivers for your computer and you can get it back up and running clean if need be..
