Question about Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook
I was working on my acer 5050 recently when it froze up, I turned it off, when i attempted to reboot it, i only get a message the says unable to locate operating system, then the comp shuts off, i assume this is a hard drive prob, but i would like a second opinion.
Thanks for any help
This means it cannot find the Windows OS files because either:-
The hard disk has failed or it needs reseating.
or the hard disk controller has failed.
or the Windows files have been deleted or corrupted (maybe by virus)
Try reseating the hard drive.
If the hard disk is faulty, you need a new one.
Try using your recovery CD disk.
Try re-installing Windows
