I cant get my computer to operate in windows normal mode and i cant get to reboot to originao settings acer 5738z, i bought a recovery disc but cant even get this to load as can nly have laptop on in...

I believe you should try LKGC (Last Known Good configuration) before using a recovery disc.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

When i turn on my acer aspire 5050 laptop the only thing come up on the screen is operating system missing

This is a problem that I have encountered many times, in most cases this indicates the hard drive is bad. If you have a recovery disc try to re-install your operational system, if you are successful it proves that you had corrupted files and windows could not start.

After installing an automatic update, upon re-starting, my computer will load the windows xp welcome screen, the blue bar, under the windows xp icon, scrolls as if the computer is booting up. The screen...

Sounds like the HAL.DLL problem that I have with my Aspire One.
Try booting off a genuine Windows XP disc and choosing the 'recovery console' option. At the command line, type 'CHKDSK C:' and press Enter. If you're lucky, that will do the trick.

My screen goes blank and stops just before getting to were you put in the pass word...

Are you using Window XP, Does it display the Windows logo on start up, if so try to go to safe mode by pressing F8 on start up and select "Last know good configuration that worked" when option displays, and if it again it stucks then insert the Win XP disc and repair the installation.

Acer aspire 5050 keeps looping the acer screen and shuts down

If the hard drive tested out ok (?) then I would burn a copy of memtest (free just google it) boot from it and test the memory. I would suggest though that the issue is the hard drive or possibly motherboard

Can't Get In My Computer

Do a Chkdsk:
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Chkdsk C: /R

Or an XP repair:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank

Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.
