The key lock wont turn


One of the tumbler blades has been pushed out farther than normal due to the cut of the wrong key. WD40 the lock inserting the tube into it. Put in the correct key and jiggle it while trying to turn key back and forth. Repeat as necessary. If after multiple attempts don't work (be patient) then tap the outside of the lock where you insert the key with a block if wood or small hammer. The vibration is what will allow the tumbler blade to slip back into place.

No bootable device acer aspire 5250


This error message means that the computer is not seeing the hard drive or there is no operating system on the hard drive. In the bios does the computer see the hard drive? The unit may have to have the hard drive replaced.

UPDATING BIOS... DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK


This happens because the boot process fails: either because in the boot order the floppy isn't mentioned (put it first) or the bootdisk isn't good.
BTW you should update the BIOS only if you have problems, like a new processor not being recognized.

Installation of XP hung up and will not complete - system down


Well it sounds like you have a dirty cd or a bad cd.
Turn the cd upside down and look at it usually when you get the hang it means that the eye stopped moving from either somthing on the cd so clean the cd then try.
If it still doesn't work then see if there is a deep scratch on the cd.
But my bet would be is the cd needs to be cleaned

For that you will have to have the installation cd of windows xp
insert it in the cd- drive  and then meke the laptop boot from the cd  (either you will have a boot menu by pessing 'f12'  or del   or enter the bios settings and then change it )
after that follow the steps given on the page  please do read the instruction  before pressing any key 
you will have to format a drive of your system so   caryy forward only  after taking  the backup

hope this  helps
if you have any other questions pls  post back

SPICELOUNGE UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME


I have the same computer except it is the 2400 Dimension. If you have a win 98 bootdisk which is a lot smaller file and easier to use insert in a:/ startup with cdrom support when its done loading it goes to a:/. When thats done your cdrom drive has been changed to E:/ if you have your XP install disk put it in your cdrom. Ok beside where it says a:/ type in e:/ which changes it to e:/ drive when thats done type in setup and it should start your install there should be a choice to repair at some point click on that and it should repair. If by chance that don't work let me know and we will do something different.You can get a 98 bootdisk at http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm just follow instructions how to make the disk.
Let me know
God Bless Greg
