Operating system not found


Unfortunately, Acer PC's do not come with an Official Microsoft Install Disc, however, you should be able to reset the computer to its original factory setting(s), by pressing either F10 or F11 at the initial start-up of the computer, not the start-up screen of the operating system. If this does not work, even though it should as long as you have not altered the HDD internal disc drive to the point to were you would have removed this factory installed reset function. In the event that this setting is not found or available, one other option is to connect an external CD/DVD-ROM Drive to the computers USB port load a copy or an original Microsoft Install Disc into the CD/DVD-ROM Drive. Turn your PC on and at the initial start-up screen of the computer, not the operating system start-up, access the computers bios screen, or boot order screen and adjust the computers settings to boot initially from usb port/external hard drive/CD?DVD-ROM Drive. If your computer allows you to do such, you should be able to re-install the operating system, be it the same or a newer windows version or some other type. NOTE: If you have the know how, you can download free operating system online for free, and creat your own "boot-able" flash drive...

My nephew's original xbox will not turn on it just flashes green and orange around the power button


If your system has had an internal system error (three lights) and is now having issues recognizing controllers, remotes, and/or personal music player's, the only currently know solution is to rerun initial setup.

Rerun initial setup
Before trying this, it's highly recommend that you remove all hard drive and memory cards. Once you've removed all hard drives and memory cards, navigate to the systems tab in the main menu and select the "Initial Setup" option. Once you select the option, it will ask you if want to run the initial setup that occurred when you first started your console. Say yes and it will do its thing. When it asks for a memory card/hard drive, just decline and it should be done. You should see the default dashboard screen as confirmation that it did, in fact, rerun initial setup.

Resetting to factory defaults / resetting parental locks (unconfirmed)
This was posted on the xbox-scene forums and might work only with older versions of Xbox 360 dashboard.

Press the following key combination

  • Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X

This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.

Reset Xbox 360 video settings
While the Xbox 360 is starting up, hold Y and Right trigger. This will cause the system to reboot and reset the video settings.

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found no bootable


Your hard disk is disconnected, or not configured correctly in the CMOS. Go to the BIOS and be sure that the computer recognizes the hard disk. If doesnt happens, check the connectors, and if it doesnt fix your problem, you need a new hard drive.

No Oeperating system found


it is possible you have a cd in your cd-rom or a usb drive in your usb port that is trying to load first.
take those out, see if that helps.

if not, it possible you have a corrupted boot sector.
check the hard drive for errors.

thanks

Error msg cannot start correct harddrive not found


Your hard drive has died. You must replace it. Get any size SATA 2.5" notebook hard drive replacement and install it. I have seen this issue plenty of times. Usually on the old 40GB systems.
