Back-up any important files to an external hard drive, if at all possible, before proceeding.
Place the Windows Install CD into the computer's optical drive. Restart the computer with the disc inside. As the computer starts up, it will prompt you to press any key to boot into the Windows Install CD, press any key to do so
3 Press "Enter" to bypass the "Welcome to Setup" screen. Press "F8" to accept the Windows License Agreement. Windows Setup will ask if you'd like to install any available updates to the operating system. If you currently have a (wired) Internet connection, download the updates. If you do not, you can install the updates after the restore completes.
Select the "Custom" installation route. Select the internal hard drive as the installation destination. Press "D" to delete any and all data on the hard drive. Confirm this action by pressing "L". Press "C" to create a new partition to install Windows. You will need to use the "NTFS" file system, as this is the Windows default.
Continue the installation by following any on-screen instructions. You will be asked for the Product Key, your region/time zone and to create a name for the computer. The whole re-installation, reformat and restore process will take a little over an hour. Once complete, the computer will reboot to apply the finishing touches. Remove the Windows Install CD at this point to avoid booting back into the disc. The Gateway laptop will launch into a freshly restored Windows installation.
You should kindly explain how it started, what happened and symptoms you see. Try this: 1. When you try booting and you can see your operating system (OS) e.g 'Windows Vista' appearing on the screen and not giving you a successful booting, then repair repair Windows or formating using your Operating System software. OR 2. When you try booting and you can't see anything on your screen or not even a sign of booting, try and confirm if your motherboard is still good. And if bad a pin board can be fix and pinless board unfixablr.
I do apologize for the inconvenience you have been facing.The reason why the laptop does not reboot to Windows even after reinstalling Windows is because the issue is with the hard drive not being recognized the reason for which you get a blinking line on the screen after the Acer logo .In this case I would suggest that if the laptop is under warranty please contact the Acer Technical support and have an order placed for repair.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.
Hi, you will need to reformat your hard drive before installing XP, First boot into BIOS by pressing the F1 key during bootup, change the primary boot drvice to CD rom, save changes. Insert XP cd into drive and reboot PC; select boot from CD when this appears during the initial boot fase. Allow files to be installed. When this finishes, delete partion and then repartion hard drive. Select format hard drive, when this completes your PC will reboot, do not select boot from CD and XP will start to install normally. Hope this helps, if not come back to me.
I run into this all the time, thank you microsoft!
First, shut it down and take a break, make sure you power the computer completely down to a cold boot. Walk away for ten, fifteen minutes.
Then when you come back boot into your setup (bios) screen, to do this is different for each manufacturer, some require you to hit del, some F2, some F10... when you get there Change your boot order to anything other than what it currently is, and save it. Reboot. let windows try to start. if it does, great! If not, reboot and Go BACK to the setup screen and change your boot order BACK to what you NEED/WANT it to be and save again and reboot. This SHOULD take you back to a windows startup of either a repair or safe startup screen. DO NOT REPAIR! Boot normally. The updates lost a startup configuration that is written INTERNALLY to windows. Since you altered the hardware configuration by changing the boot sequence around, windows had to rewrite this and away you go. On a laptop it gets a bit more confusing as you have to do this without the battery in place or it will continually write the data to the hard drive under the laptops auto powerdown/save features that a desktop does not have. NOTE: if this does not work any other bios change other than clock/calander will force this dmi configuration change. but typically the boot sequence is the safest to alter, as you do not risk messing up critical setting with this one.
Complete the recovery again but leave the discs in the computer. That way if the computer needs some files while rebooting it will take them off the cd....if not it will load and that will be the end of that. Just remember when you boot the computer for the first time to initiate the recovery, when it says to boot from cd touch any key...that is only done one time when you first initiate the recovery...after that do not touch any key if it says that...just let windows boot on it own. Once windows boots on its own, then you can take the recovery disc out and put it away.
First we need to break out of the cycle. Try booting into safe mode using the f8 key on startup. Usually press power and start tapping the button or it will miss it. Let it boot completley and then open my computer and see if you have any space left on your C drive. If you do then shutdown and reboot into normal windows. If not empty recycle bin and run start-all programs-accesories-system tool- disk cleanup then reboot into normal windows.
Going into safe mode should get you out of the cycle at which point you want to manually run the windows update from either the start menu or from internet explorer tools. That will download new versions of the updates and install them.
If it is still in that cycle then you might need some local help as the update files need to be deleted. These are found in the windows directory so you have to be careful not to delete the wrong files. If you ran the disk cleanup that should have deleted these files and made enough room if not then I would need to know exact update names and so on to be able to help you with this step.
I figured out how to ghost a Dell Precision 490 with a 32 bit Windows XP Image! Like you I had the same problem where it would constantly reboot after I imaged it with an existing 490 image. The answer is actually very simple. Boot up your Precision 490 and hit F2 to enter the bios. Select Drives and then SATA Operation, change it to "Raid Autodetect / ATA". Reboot the 490 and re image the machine, it will now work!
