Unable to boot internal devices? bug?

Did you go into the bios settings and check the status of the hard drive? it would seem that is where the problem lies.

After pressing powerbutton startup stops with a black screen and text: schrijfleesfout

- this means "disk read error"
- you might have a faulty HDD
- try to restart the system and boot to bios by pressing F2
- check under system information if the HDD is detected
- if it's detected or not detected, try to reset Bios to default by pressing F9 and F10
- upon doing this and still the same error then call acer if the laptop is still under warranty to have them replace the HDD

I have a acer aspire 3680 and it want boot up operating system not found. Can you please help me.

1. Go to BIOS setup at the time of booting by pressing F1 or F2 or Del Key. Select the first boot device as HDD. Also check whether HDD has been detected. Save and restart the system. (If not detected then check it with technician.)
2. If still not booting, if you don't have any data required on the HDD then try using recovery CD and boot through it to restore your OS to the manufacturers default.
3. If you dont have much idea about these process better handle take help of service engineer.

Lenovo SL 500 not booting after startup only black screen with cursor is seen


Most of the time, the machine booting with the blinking cursor indicates a problem with the HDD itself.

You can do the following:

1) Reseat the HDD
2) Check BIOS boot order and see if the HDD is still recognized at BIOS level
3) Load the BIOS defaults (F1 at boot, then F9, F10)
4) If the HDD is detected at BIOS, try to access Rescue and Recovery on the HDD (F11 key at boot) and try to reload Windows.
5) If problems persist, I'd highly recommend replacing the HDD!!

You are getting this mess because the system is not able to detect a boot partition on the hdd or may be it is not able to detect the HDD itself.

Try to remove the HDD(hard disk) and re-seat it, Also make sure that there is no disk in the CD drive (in case the first boot device in the BIOS is set as CD drive).

Go to BIOS by pressing F10 (system setup) and check if the HDD is detected in BIOS.

Try to run a recovery by pressing F11 on first screen after power on.

Please get back for any further assistance.

Crashed vista help!

it's look like you have a problem with hdd or motherboard.
basically, your motherboard isnot detecting your hdd.

try to boot and press F2 to go to bios and check your hdd in bios.
if it is takes long time to go to bios. most of the time your hdd is dead.
but it is fast and your hdd isnot detected in bios. it's mean your motherboard is bad.

XP wont be able to detect your hdd as you are using a SATA drive. You have two options here

1. Disable SATA function in the bios (easier to do) and use again your XP cd to install the software, it should be able to detect the hdd this time around

2. You have to slip stream the SATA driver to your XP CD and recreate another CD from it. (harder to do). Google "SATA driver slipstream XP" you will be directed to the proper sites

Hard Drive failure?

Try the HD on another Labtop with a IDLE Kit, or take of the HD and Boot, if the laptop tells you the HD is missing its ok, also check your memory and your BIOS setting, It could be your HD or your HD, Just do some testing before any future decision.
