Hi go to bios and check there if your hard drive is detected if so check boot up priority, remove any CD from CD drive and usb sticks. If still no luck your hdd may by fault and you need replace it. Download linux mandriva or ubuntu

Acer aspire just quit with a grinding sound


Yes, the HD might make that sound and, if it did, it's dead. When that happens the computer will usually power on but it won't boot because it can't; if the disk is dead there's no way for the computer to load the operating system. If you have a bootable CD (the recovery disks that come with most desktops are bootable) then you could try putting that in to the CD drive and booting the computer. If the computer boots up with a CD but not with the HD, then you have a dead HD.

System completely locked out... will not boot!


there will be a setting in the BIOS that will stop the ACER logo, and you can see the Diagnostic screen, and get an idea of where in the process it is hanging....

Personally I bet it is hanging at the 'detect SATA' devices stage.

Open the side panel and remove and re-seat all SATA device cables, at BOTH the device and the motherboard.

If that fails, then the boot sector may need to be repaired on the hard drive. you will need a Windows disk for the OS that your client has though....although if it's an MBR disk you can use an XP or a win2k disk to repair. There are downloadable tools in iso format that you can burn and use to boot from the CD and then repair the boot-sector ...

My aspire m5641 wont format to vista it freezes when i "select the driver to be installed" then suddenly freezes plzz help


Acer is known for that. The easiest way to format the hard drive is to insert any windows installation cd, then when the computer first powers on, press F12 and change the boot order to boot from cd. Follow the instructions through, and one of the steps will ask you to format the hd. Another way is to hook up the hd secondary on another computer and format it.

Acer Aspire One has Hard drive Password frozen


There should not be a password set in the BIOS unless you set it up with one. You can clear the BIOS to BRAND NEW state. Acer can guide you through this if it is under warranty. If it is not, write back and I will help you do this.
