When i turn my d257 acer aspire one on it goes to blue screen asking for a password, or it either goes to a screen that says no boot disk


No Boot disk found - usually indicates the HDD is not located.
so you need to validate the HDD is inserted properly, and locked into the HDD slot. securely,
Blue Screen asking for password, could mean several things,
basically you need with both errors, take to a good Repair Tech and have this looked into... PASSWORD can be either for BIOs or HDD,
or the system went into LOCKED MODE and password is needed to UNLOCK it.

Bios password


hi, BIOS or CMOS password are usually reset by a jumper or shorting pins. if your are the owner of the laptop you can go the brand site and ask for a universal default password. this is the safest way. however, if you don't want these hassles you can follow below procedure but with risks. it is for you to follow or not.
1. when you prompt the with password. type anything.
2. 3 wrong password will show "system disabled" with codes.
3. Turn off your computer, remove the adapter and battery on your laptop for a couple of seconds.

Reboot your system and see if password is disabled.
im not responsible for any damage for system. it's your own risk.

thanks

When i switch my laptop on it asks me to reboot . but when it reboots as soon as the windows blue screen comes up it turns off and then starts up its self and asks me to reboot again


David:

Your computer is very unhappy with a piece of hardware or a software driver in the system. The windows blue screen is known as "the blue screen of death or BSOD" and will usually have a "Stop Code" like 0x0000008E or the suchlike with some address data shown below. Make a note of the stop code and then Google it up with the manufacturer of your box to see if there is an article on what the system is complaining about (video driver, etc.). You may have to recover the laptop. If it has a recovery partition there should be instructions on their website to recover your box. You can also try hitting f8 after starting boot process and if it gives you the startup menu: (1) try Last known good configuration, or if that doesn't work (2) Safe mode. If it boots in LKGC then whatever updates or changes were made don't need to be reapplied until you find out what killed the system---same if it starts in Safe Mode ---usually a driver issue or Microsoft Update issue if it starts in safe mode. ECS also has a support link off the above web site where FAQ and the ability to contact them is listed.:

When i turn the power on after two minutes it shuts down right away. tried to charge it still the same it will turn on for 2 mins then shut down again. i tried rebooting it press f8 but it gave me another...


you got 2 things here:
1. pc shutting down unexpectedly
2. blue screen

1. the cause could vary:
a. cpu overheating: make sure you are letting the laptop to breath, open/clean vents.
b. motherboard failure: get a new laptop.
c. battery failure: try to take the battery out and connect the laptop and test/replace the battery as needed.

2. blue screen: if it is a Blue Screen of Dead, try to note any error codes and post back or at this stage it could be virus: take the hd out, connect it to an enclusure and hook it up to another good computer and attempt to save the usuful data. then reinstalled hard drive in laptop and reinstall os.
b. hadware failure: replace laptop.

on the password:

the only three possibilities where you may be asked for a password is if you're trying to access a password protected bios (which you rarely do with f8) or if you're accessing the recovery console in which you need to enter your windows user name and password or if you're accessing the computer in safemode in which you can enter any user name and their password or the user name: Administrator and for password it could be either blank or whatever password was set when windows was installed

good luck!

HOW CAN I FIX MY COMPUTER? ITS READING UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME?


You need your Windows XP cd for this fix.

Boot from the Windows XP CD and at the first prompt, press "r" for repair. Press 1 when asked to choose windows installation and then enter the admnistrator password. If you don;t have one, just press "enter" and it should show you "c:\windows>"

At this prompt, type the following

chkdsk /r

THis should take quite sometime but will fix the problem at the end. when you get the c:\windows prompt again, type the word "exit" and your system will reboot and load windows XP normally
