When everything gets done loading the screen says:
<There is no disk in this drive.>
it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list
Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000
I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I
switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or
else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error
What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click
button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.
From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again
im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated
Try booting your computer from CD ROM with the OS CD/DVD already inserted and when prompted just try repair. If that does not work re-install the same on the same 'partition' assuming it to be C by deleting the the windows system files only. While doing so keep the internet on and immediately after the basic version of the OS is installed and the m/c boots-up for the first time, go to the official website and download the latest drivers for every component like toch-pad, keypad, display, audio, etc.(i.e. almost all the drivers)
Hi there. Log into Windows and press Acer Empowering Key to launch, you can use that utility to restore the system. If you have a pqservice partition but alt f10 does not work there is a
file called mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin which is needed to install the
acer missing magic code all you have to do is type the following on a dos prompt. mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin it adds the file to a slot
Once you have done that reboot the computer and wait it takes a while
to restart, it then it seems to find new hardware (dont know what it finds)
then do a reboot and then you can alt f10 to your hearts content.
is this a windows login password or a boot password
you should have Fn key on keyboard
and another coloured key to correspond for turning on keyboard press Fn and the other key simultaneously
Could be fn f3 keys
if you just bought you may find it in your manual
please let me know if you still need help
if you have a switch above scroll pad you may have shut that off but all models don't come with that option
edit boot options is the order in which your computer will reboot... select hard drive... if it does not successfully boot up... reboot and tap the F8 key.... boot to last known good configuration... if that doesn't work... reboot... F8 the safe mode... if it will boot to safe mode reboot normally... should be fine
If your son used the edata security and used both passwords. you can either ask him for password or change the boot secuence to boot to restore disk and restore back to default..which defaults to NO PASSWORD set.
press Ctrl+Alt+Del and you will get a new screen type as administrator and leave the password enter if it works your saved go to control panel users then select your user name and remove the password from there
When the login screen comes up and asks for the username and password. Username - Administraion there should be no password for that account. Once into the system go to the control panel and then to user accounts and change what you desire.
XP home hold F8 untill you get to the boot mode and choose Safe Mode once in to the system go to control panel and user accounts and do the same as above. If this doesnt work please respond with OS.
