Error 17 sounds like a grub bootloader problem, IE: your Acer disk didn't perhaps reload the boot code for Windows, or remove grub entirely.

http://www.ubuntu.com/download
Ubuntu 10.10 Latest Version
which can repair what windows has ruined and is unable to fix fix the problem
either burn it to a disk as an iso and install

you might have burn it to an iso first then boot from the cd rom to install ubuntu or you might just try to install ubuntu directly from the download if it does not install you might save it to a folder then burn it as an isohttp://download.cnet.com/active-iso-burner/3000-2646_4-10602452.html
once Ubuntu has been installed on your computer has corrected the fault you will be able to reinstall windows
or keep ubuntu and install windows next door to it

you can have a dual boot computer with both windows and ubuntu linux you will need to partition your hard drive to do this
is a free partition program.
I have actually used this process to fix my computer with similiar problems and it works.

SOURCE: my acer aspire one model ZG5 turns on but has a blake screen can i fix it? ia there a way to do it without a usb stick or cd rom?

Your system is not Passing the Power On Self Test or POST and will need to be seen to by a computer technician. He/she will then diagnose the faulty component and then replace it. Claim warranty support if it is available to you.

It could be a loose connection between the RAM modules or actual physical damage at the internal display cable/bus. Some-times these get severed by the hinge.

Test your computer's functionality by connecting a friends computer monitor to the VGA out of your notebook. If it powers on and displays your desktop then the problem lies with either your screen or graphics card, or graphics card connection.

Take care!

Hello i have an Acer Aspire One model zg5 netbook


You're going to need to boot it from the Windows XP installation disk, which means if you don't have a CD drive you'll need to get an external CD-ROM drive. This will fix the problem.

My aspire one zg5 screen has moved to the left


i assume that when you start the machine you are getting the correct screen (Acer preboot screen) if that is working, then you should check the resolution, simple way is to start the computer in VGAmode, press F8 while starting the computer and select the VGA mode, this will start the computer in 800*600 resolution. then change the screen resolution to the 1024*600. this should fix the issue.

Forgot pasword


If you are talking about Windows log on password, go to this site http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd and download the iso image file (pick either XP or Vista accordingly), burn it to a CD. Make sure in the BIOS, set the starting device priority with CD/DVD first. Start your computer with the CD in the drive, follow the on screen instruction, and you should get all the password back.
