Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Boots to progress bar before loading windows

When I switch on my Acer travelmate 4070 it shows a progress bar at the bottom of the screen before windows boots up. This progress bar takes about 10minutes to complete before the normal windows xp loads with the normal progress bar.

It looks as though the first progress bar has something to do with the bios or firmware of the PC as it occurs on a black screen.

    I believe someone has the same issue on this post - still no solution: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthre...

    To re-cap:
    1) Switch on laptop
    2) Acer splash screen displays
    3) Screen goes black for 30seconds
    4) DOS white progress bar displays at bottom of screen
    5) Progress bar takes 10-15 minutes to complete
    6) Windows XP splash appears and loads normally
    7) OS fully functioning

    Tried the solution (disk error check), did not work :(

It seems that windows tries to check your Hard Disk for errors before loading the system files to memory. Do you hear some sounds from your hard disk? If you can successfully get to windows, open my computer => right click on drive C => Click on Properties => Click on TOOLS Tab and click CHECK NOW button.

Check the next 2 options and answer YES when windows ask you to schedule a thorough scan during next boot.

Regards!

Where is the wireless switch


On the front edge of the laptop by the right speaker, there is a switch just left of the speaker. That is the wireless switch, to the left of that switch is another and that is the bluetooth radio switch. Below is a link to the service manual that goes over every aspect of your laptop.
