Depending on your version of windows, I would trying starting in safe mode to see if the computer does boot. If it does, then you want to restart again, go to advanced boot options and select "start windows with last known good configuration." Access advanced boot options following the steps at this link. Need to Start Windows 7 in Safe Mode Here How
Your laptop was not designed to run windows 7 or be compatible with it. It may run fine with windows 7 but issues might come up sooner or later like the one you're experiencing.
[EXPERIMENTAL] Download both of these (as I don't know which one of thsese two your laptop needs). Keep mind that doing the following could render your system inoperable and use at own risk. When downloaded, extract ZIP , open desired folder and find SETUP or INSTALL program. Right click and choose properties, then navigate to compatibility mode, then select windows Vista from the menu. Then apply changes, ok and close window and attempt to start.
id reinstall vista ! if you want to do this you need to get in to the bios which u press F2 i believe when the comp first starts up when your in the bios scroll along to boot menu u shud see a boot list with your hard drive at the top ,you need to change your dvd drive to the top so itll boot from dvd , restart your computer with a windows vista disc in the dvd drive and i think it shud give you an option to fix your system if doesnt work then definitly do a clean install of vista using your product code . hope this works
Try to see if it will boot in safe mode, by pressing F8 while the laptop boots up. If it allows you to boot in safe mode, try to do a system restore when you know that laptop was working with no problems. You can do this by clicking on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date and time when you know that the laptop was working with no problems. If this does not work or you cannot boot in safe mode (be aware that everything will look big in safe mode and when the computer reboots if asked how you want to start windows, choose start windows normally), try doing a recovery. This will restore your computer to the factory default settings when you purchased it. You can do this by booting the computer, when the acer screen appears hold down the ALT key and continuously press F10, this will open the recovery manager and you can restore it from there.
I had the same problem with my neices Acer 5100...Went into safe mode, it loaded the drivers and sat that for what seemed forever...almost like it was hung up....I had a few things to do...and a couple hours later, it finally booted into safe mode.
I was able to save her files, but ultimatly ended up wiping everything out because of the corrupt files.
On another Acer, the same hang up "unable to boot into safe mode" even after a long period of time, and that Acer was a total loss..had to format...
I presume nothing was saved to a CD? i.e. her gsce files?
Doing a factory restore/reset will loose everything.
Try to boot into safe mode and allow it to boot up...see if it eventually comes up...I will keep reading for a solution other than the two here...and will post as soon as I find one... Unfortunately, Acer do not have a good fix for most of their computer problems....
Typically when something like that happens, it involves the video
driver in Windows. (Or whatever operating system you are using.) The
driver could have crashed which can sometimes just break the driver
This is where using Safe Mode comes in handy when trying to boot your
Windows OS. Vista does have a Safe Mode. It allows you to boot into
your Windows installation - minus the drivers being loaded. This is
done by pressing F8 continuously after you boot your system until you
get some boot options from Windows.
You'll see Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc. Select Safe Mode and boot to your desktop if it will let you.
Remember that your drivers are NOT installed at that point and things
will look different and/or work differently. This gives you the
opportunity to uninstall drivers that may be corrupted and reinstall
the drivers with either a fresh version or a NEWER version. (I suggest
using the newest drivers you can find.)
If your system can not boot into Safe Mode, then that suggests a deeper
problem with either your OS or even your actual hardware. (Pray that
it's not the latter.)
Try booting Vista with Safe Mode before trying anything else for the time being. Let us know what happens here.
I'm afraid that this is the first step to figuring out the problem.
If you DO get into Vista, uninstall your video driver and reboot the
machine. Get into Safe Mode again and install the newest one you can
Here is the list of drivers for your machine in a PDF document I managed to dig up on their website.
