Error Code: 0280 Previous boot incomplete - Default configuration used


Message Meanings : Previous POST did not complete successfully. POST loads default values and offers to run Setup. If the failure was caused by incorrect values and they are not corrected, the next boot will likely fail. On system with control of wait states, improper Setup settings can also terminate POST and cause this error on the next boot. Run Setup and verify that wait-state configuration is correct. This error is cleared the next time the system is booted.

What does the above mean ??? If the BIOS does not see a particular device loading ( like Hard Drive ) Try bringing up the Bios setting F-2 and reset to default. Hope this helps


BBBB
If one of the BIOS settings is incorrect or if the system is looking for a particular ggggg

I have a problem with my laptop acer travelmate 550. Display an error number 0280 previous boot incomplete default configaration used press F1 to resume, F2 to setup


Possible that PC is hanging up as there is fault on the OS ( operating system) or a virus in the OS. Also it is possible that the back up( CMOS) has low voltage or the memory card is a suspect. In this case you need to check the voltage and also try and swap a memory card. If not the OS is a suspect.

It is best to go for a paid antivirus software which you can get in a package. Personally we are not recommending any particular company but you can try with Avira, Antivir, AVG, Kaspersky. It is always best to install the antivirus when the installation of the OS is done.

Now before this you can open the internet options in the browser and clean all the cookies, temporary internet files, defragment the drives and RESTORE the PC to an earlier set date.

You can use a registry cleaner like Advanced system care. Download from the site and check you system for corrupt files. Also use a good antivirus software which is active to keep your system performing without an attack on the OS. Remove all unnecessary programs installed which you do not use all the time and clean up the drives. This will free up the space and make your system faster.
If there is no response but the PC tends to work slower and occasionally hanging when a program is being executed then you might have to install the OS once again. Install the OS and then an antivirus before the drivers of the PC is installed.

Acer aspire one - its died!!!


If it was just the hard drive, I would expect the video to come on and say something like "no boot device."
However, since you went through the steps here and see absolutely no video (even none on an external monitor), I would suspect a motherboard failure.
Be sure that when you hooked up an external monitor that you pushed the Fn key and the appropriate special function key (maybe F7) that switches between the laptop and external monitor. If you have done that (pushed the combination several times to switch displays), then you can be pretty certain your video card (if a separate card) may be bad.
I'm not really sure if this machine has a separate video card. The specs say it's a ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. This leads me to believe it may be a separate card.
If it's just the card that went bad, you can replace it. Otherwise, the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Good luck. You can do that, but if you're not confident, you best take the machine to a repair shop.

I have some problem with my monitor frequency and wyse terminal frequency.Its overrange, i can't see anything when i power it up.Can smbd tell me how to reset factory default with power on.


This is caused by the terminals default display resolution (or the resolution that it was set to in its previous environment). The easiest way to get a display, would be to use a different monitor with a higher range of supported resolutions.

Fingers crossed the previous wnos.ini file would allow a G-key reset. If so, just hold down the G key when the terminal is booting, and it will reset to factory defaults. This might allow your monitor to work. (I think the default resolution is 800x600)

The problem you have is that the terminal might be locked down via the .ini file. So changing the configuration might be difficult. You could use a program like Wireshark to perform a network trace, this would tell you where the terminal is looking for it its wnos.ini file.

Then you will be able to setup a new wnos.ini on an FTP server set to the IP address(and path) the terminal is looking for, and this will allow you to set your own configuration
