Hard disk error, insert operating system disks and run a repair or a complete clean installation.

Well I have the same problem, I think it is a BIOS problem because after the acer screen it says Windows did not start succesfully. I saw start Windows normally but it has that "blink of an eye flash" as well, then it goes back and tries to boot up again. Maybe take it to a shop to get fixed.

My acer travelmate 4200 starts up and then shuts off


Try another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs. Have you cleaned the fan, vents, heatsink recently? Do you get to any screen? BIOS setup? Boot Menu? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord?

How do i do a system rebuild on a acer travelmate 2410 series 2413NWMLi , the <alt> <f10> does not bring anything up


If your computer does not have a hidden partition for OS recovery, a recovery CD will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
Order the Recovery Media from Acer https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=acer
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

    Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

  8. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: if your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.

My acer travelmate 4150 when switched on makes a constant screaming noise and does not boot up


Try this: once you turn on your Acer Laptop, immediately it shows the acer logo on your screen, press 'Esc" button constantly or press the "Esc" button continuously immediately you turn on your laptop.

I am telling you to do this out of experience, but if it does not work, let me know.

Take care.

How do I re-format Acer 4200 TravelMate hard drive?


Windows Reinstallation Disk option:

Insert Windows Reinstallation disk into tray, Boot to CD/DVD-ROM by pressing F12 at initial boot screens, delete existing Windows partition, re-create partition, and then follow steps to reinstall Windows. This will lead you to an option for formatting hard drive. I recommend choosing the full format versus the quick, from this point you can let windows install, or just shut the computer down when the format finishes. You will have to watch the progress, though, if you don't want the install to commence.


Boot disk option:

For XP, 95, 98, or ME, follow the instructions at this MS article page. It will walk you through creating a boot disk that will allow you to format.

You will need a floppy disk or CD
