Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
When I turn on my system it attempts to boot up flashes a blue screen for a split second, then takes me to Windows Error Recovery screen.
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause"
I've had this problem since I downloaded and installed some recommended updates for VISTA.
I tried the Startup repair and it says it can not fix the issue so I tired a system restore point with no fix.
I have also tried the F8 menu during boot up and tried to get the last good configuration with no fix, safe mode with no fix, normal reboot with no fix. When I tell it not to reboot off error I get a blue screen that says
"Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer"
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0x80599bb0, 0xC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)
I don't have any rescue disk.
Has anyone had this issue?
Hi, i have had 2 acer 5100 notebooks for nearly 2 years now bolth had failed, short time after warranty was up took me many hours to get them working again.. did acer not put the recovery on another partition on your hard drive? if you open my computer-drive c-then you may see a recovery drive,named acer or recovery. do you have the option at post for recovery mode(push f10)? look for this. other than that you have to buy the recovery disks. or buy an operating system. my favorite phrase comes to mind-don't let an update bring you down. i hope this helps you,good luck!

Sounds like you need to reinstall the operating system. if you don't have the disk you can call acer and they will send you the disk. they might charge you for the disk usually between $15 and $30.
