Try booting from your Vista DVD and click on “Repair your computer”, click on Next and choose Startup Repair. It may take quite a while to complete and you may be asked to reboot several times. You may also be presented with an option to use System Restore during the process. Click Cancel as there is another option that can be used if the repair is not successful.

If the repair doesnt work, you will be presented with a new screen telling you that Windows Could not repair automatically. Click on View advanced options for system recovery and support and then click on System Restore and follow the prompts.

My laptop is 3690 aspire when i open my laptop it tells the "BootMRG" is compressed press ctrl+alt+delete to restart when i restart the same screen,s comes

Can you tell me which operating system you are running please?

I have seen this problem a number of times and it is usually straight forward to fix.
(in a nutshell, you have compressed your boot drive (usually C drive) in windows, which also compresses your bootmgr file).
There are a couple of ways to uncompress the drive depending on your OS.

If you let me know your OS I will post relevant details for you.

Acer aspire 4736z with window 7 os had its bootmgr compressed... the screen keep showing "bootmgr is compressed press ctrl alt del"

Boot to the Windows Recovery Environment (WINRE) for 7 and run the following commands from the command prompt:


cd \windows

cd system32

compact /u c:\

compact /u c:\*.*


bootrec /FixMbr

bootrec /fixboot

bootrec /rebuildbcd


This will resolve the issue as the boot loader will no longer be flagged to be compressed, will uncompressed, and then rebuilt.
