Shut down the computer and then hold Fn key and then press the power buttong which will take you to Pre Boot Assesment test so let the test run and if hard drive is failing it will give you an error.If you want to do extended test then once this PSA test is finished it will ask you wether you want to remaining memory test just say yes and after that run the extended test which test the computer components extensivly and by that you can make sure wether hard drive is fine or not.If everything passes then reisntall Operating system or if you want to try to repair then boot from vista dvd (if vista) and then choose option repair.Let me know if further help needed

OMG ... i was completley distraught. i bought my ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP 6
months ago when i was trveling in italy ,im in austarlia. I use it to
run my online game ; » www.themafiawarz.eu - and has all my files.
When i got the black screen o death i first am here to the boards finding nothing i was further distraught..
I AM HAPPY TO TELL YOU MY FRIENDS, that i am typing this on my lil baby
Heres what you do....
* you need usb disk drive
* a second computer with internet access (can be work cafe friends place)
* a file you can download from acer or search yourself called ZGIA32.zip
Format your drive in fat (*note i tried fat as directed in a number of manuals though then tried fat32 and it worked then though suggest you try fat first *shrug)
open zip file and copy 3309.fd and the fla.exe to the usb stick
rename 3309.fd to ZGIA32.fd
Turn off your laptop making sure that both battery and power supply is plugged in and attach the usb stik/drive.
hold down FN and ESC keys and press the power button, continue to fold FN and ESC keys for 7-10 secs then release - at this point the power light should be blinking and you should still have the black screen of death.
press the power button once while its blinking - this will initiate a bios update * DO NOT PUSH ANYTHING AFTER THIS
After 2 mins the aspire should reboot itself , wait for about 7mins if it dosent before rebooting manually
Took me three attempts as i just wasent doing something right though TA DA!!!!!
and i still have my files. yeah team take this and run, hope you havent spent money yet

1. you either have to dismantle the notebook or laptop and remove the CMOS battery and reinstall it . This will reset the BIOS.
2. Obtain a recovery disk or rescue disk for your model.
3. Call the manufacturer for instruction on how to recover or reset your password for your laptop.

This is either A hdd password or a bios password, you could try password, or admin / administrator as the password, or follow this guide, there are sometimes backdoor developers passwords that can work http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/reference/biosp.htm
