    Hej

    Thanks for the advice!

    I downloaded the file and burned it into a cd, inserted it to my acer, but still nothing happens.
    I can hear that it tries to read the cd but still the black screen.

    this is the file I downloaded:

Download the below names file from the Acer Link also below.It is  the last one  listed. I believe you are incorrect . It also will also contain the operating system. You may also want to download the guides and manuals for your model while you are at that download site. FIle Name:Post Acer Disk Formatter CD ISO Image

    To the person that asked about software to retreve data for VISTA. Usually once you cannot get anything from  a harddriver, then is is usually shot. Depending upon how inportant it is you can borrow someone elses windows disk.When installing it should say that it found windowns already on the computer and do you want it to fix the windows. Say yes. You may not  be able to register it then but it will give you a period of time,a month? to download everything that you want to save onto some disks,
    or is the internet connection is working to an e-mail account that is not downloaded onto  your computer.
      To the person asking about the original state w/o windows. NO. You can down load seperate drivers. But drivers are saved within wiindows itself. The BIOS beginning Instructions for the Operating System,
    are on a ROM chip and are still there.  Read your book to see how to get to the BIOS setup screen.

Hi,

Have you tried to press F8 when the system boots ( initial screen ) and tried the safe mode or last known good configuration ?

If this does not help, try a recovery disk and it should work.

Why won't my acer 3100 accept a dvd-r


Either
* your "optical" device can only read CDs, not DVDs;
* it should read DVDs, but something is "dead", and the device is not performing as it should
* you need to install software to "play" a DVD-movie.

Define "will not accept" -- can you hear the drive spin the disc?
Does any program "auto-start" on your computer, when a DVD disk is inserted?

Acer 3100 keeps wanting to reboot


Sounds like you have a BIOS problem. You can't update/reload it; for that, you need Windows. Try restoring defaults.

Hello rijotomas,
First you can try to pull the battery out and unplug the power adapter for a minute. Then plug the laptop back in without the battery. Then try to turn it back on.

Hard disk problem


If your Wundows vista is a full install program you should have deleted and created the partion then formatted the new partition before installing windows vista. Try this again if you hard drive is stuffed you will need a new one Im afraid but windows vista will tell you this before it installs itself. Goodluck!!!!!
