What stage is it failing to boot to Windows 7? Have you actually managed to boot off the installation CD/DVD or USB?
I suspect you haven't and that's the problem at a guess. You may need to disable "secure boot" in the BIOS. This prevent the system booting from other devices. Once disabled you should be able to boot from the installation DVD or USB. If you are using a DVD and have disable secure boot I would try installing from a USB drive. I have had this problem myself and the workaround was to install from USB.
If getting Windows 7 to install is not your problem, have tried starting the system in safe-mode?

SOURCE: Boot sequence / bios password issues with Acer Aspire 5100

The finger print bull is how that password came up for me and they want a 125.00 to remove it. I called the better business bureau and filed a complaint. They shouldn't have any right to control your laptop. I to have a 6292 , took it apart as far as I could and could not find jumper or password. This is a gimmick to make money.

If you don't know the password to get into the BIOS then you will need to call Acer support but you will have to prove to them that your the owner of the laptop. There is no other way

SOURCE: 7720 will not boot

off course it is repairable dont worry look try to install OS thru the following procedure to factory default state

Acer: When you first turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).

if it installs the OS ok then fine if not

pls consider changing RAM take out from beneath the laptop open the cover all screws and take out the L shaped panel then u will see the RAM in front with 2 chips one uper and one lower side try to take out both and then re fit only one in the upper slot and then try to install if hangs again , then try the 2nd chip in the first slot and repeat the procedure if it works ok only try both chips one by one if it resolves ur issue and u find the faulty one replace it with new one with sam specs

in the last case if ur system still hangs then my friend ur hard disk is giving u hard time it needs replacement

when a system boots after bios loading all that is trf from Hdisk to RAM and then OS is loaded if one have problem system will hang or freeze try these solutions and then tell me the results

pls go step by step

and pls rate me fixya if i fixed ur problem

kindly let me know abt it and tell me in detail the messages u get and the system behaviour

SOURCE: Need tor Reset Bios Password Acer 4315 "00643" <-

Don't even mess with software or gimmicls here because they don't work on laptops. This is something I've done numerous times and on all kinds of Acer laptops. You need to locate your Cmos battery, also known as the RTC battery. If you cannot find it, it means that it is on a place on the motherboard that cannot be seen from any access panel or opening. There is a battery, it is just out of the way. The trick here is that when you find it, you must "short" the two pins of the coket on the motherboard, that is the socket that the battery plug fits into. The easiest way is to get another rtc battery and caut the plug off, bare the wires and twist them together and cover with tape. This shorts out the pins and does a very nice job. Place this "shorting" plug in the socket on the motherboard and power up the laptop. Just keep it powered up for about 30-45 seconds and then power it down. Remove the "shorting" plug and reattach the normal RTC battery. Put the laptop back together and reboot. You will have to reset the BIOS now since it will have ben all reset. I'll get you a service manual that may help in your quest. It will be below...good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair.

My acer aspire 1 725 wont load due to errorcode 0x00000f and cant get into bios to change boot options how do i fix this problem


Shut down your computer completely. Once it has been turned off, press the power button to the "On" position to restart the system. Within the first 10 seconds, press down and hold the F2 button for about three seconds and then release it. Within five to 10 seconds after pressing and holding this button, you should see the BIOS setup screen on the monitor.

Can asus k42f be ugraded to windows 8?


Windows 8 has updated drivers as much as you would get from Asus built into win 8.

Go to devise MGR, if windows 8 did not load drivers, you will see a flag.

See what hardware did not load a driver and then use the win 7 driver.

You don't do anything to make a win 7 driver work, if the driver is newer, and signed it will install, if it's older then the driver windows installed, it won't install. If you see a flag and windows did not install a driver, then try the win 7 driver, or go to the MFG of the hardware and see if there is a win 8 driver.

You can also run windows update, if win update see's a newer driver out it might pick it up and give you a install option.


Now, your chipset, and most hardware has windows 8 drivers out.

The drivers are the biggest problem, the biggest problem for you is the BIOS was not set for windows 8.

So you could find even with the best drivers, win 8 slower or has bugs more then win 7 will have.

Me, I would bench test all the hardware with win 7, then with win 8 and see which one is better.

Intel DQ965GF Motherboard won't load WIN OS (WINXPPro volume disk or Win7) tho an old Dell disk did load. Is there a fix? Thz


Hello here is the homepage:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+965+Express+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+DQ965GF

Windows 7 is not a supported system, but you can use the drivers from the vista system, but only the 32 bit.

Turn on or restart your computer and watch for a message during the post about a particular key, usually Del or F2, that you'll need to press to ...enter SETUP. Press this key as soon as you see the message.

After the post, BIOS will attempt to boot from the first device listed in the boot order.You need to change that, so the first boot device in the list is the dvd drive. If that device is not bootable, BIOS will attempt to boot from the second device listed, and so on.

Note: The boot order is a BIOS setting so it's OS independent. In other words, it doesn't matter if you have Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Linux, or any other PC operating system on your hard drive or other bootable device, these boot sequence change instructions will still apply.

Here is how you do this:

http://www.hiren.info/pages/bios-boot-cdrom

But ofcourse there could be a problem with the dvd drive or harddrive.

To install windows 7, you will need at least 1 gb ram or more, and a dual core cpu.

Best of luck

Tried to update win 7 to win 8 but when loaded receive message OXOOOOOO5D nowcan,t start computer


windows 8 is far better than windows 7

To install Windows 8 on your PC, the processor (CPU) must support the following features: Physical Address Extension (PAE), NX, and SSE2. Most CPUs have support for these features, so if you receive this error, it is likely because the NX feature is not enabled on your system. To resolve this error, follow manufacturer guidelines to enable NX ("No eXecute bit"), or the equivalent XD ("eXecute Disabled"), feature within the BIOS settings. This feature is typically found in the Advanced or Security tabs within the BIOS settings, and can be referred to by a variety of names, including but not limited to: • No Execute Memory Protect • Execute Disabled Memory Protection • EDB (Execute Disabled Bit) • EVP (Enhanced Virus Protection) If the BIOS setting for the NX (XD, EDB, or EVP) support option is not available on your system, you may need to contact the manufacturer to update the BIOS. Note that some very old processors may not contain these features and will be incompatible with Windows 8 Release Candidate. A whitepaper has been published with further details about the PAE/NX/SSE2 requirement for Windows 8, error cases and scenarios that customers encounter when machines fail to meet the requirement, and what to do to install Windows 8 on their PC's. You can download the whitepaper at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/hh975398.aspx
