Question about Acer Computers & Internet
My acer aspire 4710 suddenly flashed the message ''bootmgr is compresed press ctrl+alt+del to restart''. when i do the same message comes out again. tried to press f2 to enter cmosset up but it asks for a password which i dont have and dont know. pls help.
I know of three solutions, none of them will work without recovery or OS discs, and I can only guarantee one of them--the one that whipes your system. Try these in this order (assuming you have system discs);
#1 Boot from the system disc and choose the "repair" option. This is the quickest fix, and you lose anything.
#2 Boot from the system disc, and in your Start menu search type "Command Prompt". Open Command Prompt and type (hit enter after each line);
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h
#3 Run a full system recovery from your system discs.
Now, if you don't have your system discs, and you're running Windows Vista, there is another possible option. If your computer is fairly new then you probably have a WinRE partition for recovery, (a "factory image" drive)? I won't go into this now, if you have your discs option 1 or 2 should work for you.
