I cant see my screen on my acer aspire one with linux installed its all green and yellow and blue,I want to try install win xp or vista from usb but I dont know how to set the computer to boot from usb as...


I mostly think that your screen is damaged, or maybe glass is shattered. Other less painfully thing is to check screen connection onto mainboard.

Search on internet how to upgrade acer aspire one netbook with HDD, and you will find detailed istructions about things you need in this situation and thats, opening acer aspire one. Its really tricky task to do, so i suggest you spent some quality time, an hour, hour and a half , in reassambleing all of that alone, and reconnecting main AAO netbook 8,9 inch monitor.

I hope i helped you with this small guide. Thats about it!


Sincerely

Failure to bootup


This message means that the computer could not find the MBR (master boot record) & the most likely cause is a hard disk failure. To prove this obtain an installation disk of an operationg system, say Windows XP, place the disk in the drive, and while its booting up, press F2. From the menu set the boot order to... 1. CD rom drive. Save and exit. The machine will now begin to install the operating system to your hard drive. If you get the same message again, you have a hard drive failure and it will have to be rep-laced.

Swaping hdd


You have half a dozen reasons why this will not work. The Operating system (XP) does not recognise the different hardware, the Bios doesn't recognise the MBR (the file structure of the harddrive) and you have all the wrong hardware drivers installed.
There is a way to do this if you have the original XP installation disk, install the harddrive, put the XP installation disk in the CD/DVD drive and set the machine to boot from the CD/DVD first. When the machine boots up and goes to install XP follow the instructions as if you are doing a fresh install, when SetUp attempts to format the harddrive it will discover you already have a version of XP installed and will give you the option to repair it, go ahead with the repair and MAYBE SetUp will be able to see and install the correct hardware drivers. If not you are looking at Slaving the harddrive, saving your personal files and then formatting the harddrive and reinstalling XP fresh.

Acer Notebook 5610Z - Want XP Drivers


if your currently able to surf the internet with your vista os id suggest downloading the drivers for windows xp from the manufacturer onto a usb storage device like a thumb drive or external hard drive(hdd).
after you have all the drivers you'll need have:
the windows xp disk.
1)before you restart the computer insert the windows xp disk into the cd-rom

2)resart the computer

3)when the computer starts to post press the appropriate hotkey to enter the bios(usually f1,f2 or delete key) it'll tell you on the splash screen.

4)check the boot order in the bios making sure the cdrom is the first boot device. if it is press f10 to save and let the computer boot.

5)on the upper left of the screen you'll see (boot from cd)press any key(hit a key quickly)
windows xp will then start loading on the computer.

6)windows will look for previous installations of operating systems and display them on the screen

7)click on the partition w/the current os (when you click the os will be highlighted)

8)xp will give you the choice to install delete or format the current partition

9)choose to delete the partition

after you delete the partition windows will show a matrix of the hard drive without partitions (RAW SPACE)

10)highlight the raw space
11)choose create

You definitely have a video driver problem.

Try downloading the latest drivers for that machine from the Acer web site here:

http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acerdrivers/bin/drivers.html?CFID=4762836&CFTOKEN=44214295

...if you do this (or have done it) and it does not work properly, try reinstalling the operating system and then installing those drivers fresh after install. That should work. If it doesn't, look in the Acer user's manual for the machine's maximum resolution (for example 1024x768), and then changing the video driver to one of the standard Microsoft drivers, for only that resolution. The problem you are having above seems to be that you tried this solution, but loaded a MS driver for the wrong resolution. So you are probably pretty close on it.

Good luck.
