Won't boot up on first try

Laptop, acer extensa 5630, rarely boots up to windows screen on first attempt. It goes through white, blue and black screens usually but more often than not, does not move on to the user login screen. i shut it down and try again, sometime successful on the second or third attempt.

    the command prompt worked for several powerups, though it still went to the white screen before showing microsoft screen. i redid the scan and hope it will work. the scan didn't take as long this time, first time it showed something about fixing an orphan sector or something like that. Any thoughts?

Whenever you do get it booted into windows, run the command prompt and in there run "chkdsk /f". That will check your disk for errors and repair them. Yours sounds like a boot sector problem, chkdsk should be able to fix that.

    Make sure you ran "chkdsk /f", the /f should automatically fix that sector. If there are still any problems, boot up from an windows disk and when it starts setup choose repair, go to the recovery console and run "fixboot".

I too have an Acer and have had numerous problems with it. Initially when I first got it, had the same issue (windows not booting). I called Acer Techs and basically got :"reinstall Windows"... I did so and haven't had that same issue arrive so far. (it's been about 2 years now). Please note it will wipe your drive, so transfer any files you would like to keep first.

There may be other ways, but that is what fixed mine. Good luck!

Acer extensa 5420 black screen turned on but cant hear or nothing ok i turn on the laptop and its working fine and then just it goes to a black screen i tried to turn it off but it wont go off the screen...


If you have another monitor you can hook that up to the blue connector( VGA) This is usually on the side or on the back. If you get a picture then your internal video might be bad.

Blue screen on acer extensa 5630 laptop it says its my intel display driver


Try rebooting the computer in safe mode with networking...this is usually done by tapping the F8 key while the manufacturers splash screen shows up for a few seconds. Once the multi-boot screen comes up scroll to safe mode with networking and click ok. Once the computer boots up, it will probably be using a generic video driver to show a picture, go to acer's support site and download a fresh driver, the link is below....good luck. when you click the link, make sure you pick what operating system you are using to get the correct driver. click on drivers > notebook > aspire > 5630 > choose operating system.

Cant get into safe mode. tried toggling f8/f7 together but nothing


the key to getting into safe mode....tapping F8 (only that key) super fast, not stopping until you hear a beep...and see the option to boot into safe mode.  The most common reason that it will not work is that it is not pressed fast enough or early enough.  You will know that you missed your chance if you see the windows loading screen......start pressing it right away when you restart your computer and don't stop pressing F8 until you see the black screen with the white letters giving you the option to boot into safe mode.  
Good Luck!

I want to install windows xp on my acer 4230


Hi shaikh_shaha

Can you get it to boot using any of the options it gives other than boot normally? If the blue screen is caused by hardware then installing xp will still present the problem. If the blue screen is an operating system crash then using the recovery disk or doing a repair install will solve the boot problem.

If you still rather install xp then you need to go into BIOS and set 1st boot device as CD. To go into BIOS you will need to press F10 or F2 (usually) as displayed on the splash screen when you power on

Does this help?
