Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
It sounds like the boot sector of your hard drive has become corrupted. if you have an operating disk with your operating system on it [xp, vista, whatever] insert it in your cd drive, and select 'start windows with cd support' NOTE- if you still get the same message, you may have to change the boot priority order- this is done as you turn the machine on, and it will say 'press esc, or fi, or some key to enter cmos [or bios setup] usually that choice appears under advanced settings, look for 'boot sequence' or 'boot priority' -select cd rom. then try the first steps i described. if you are able to access any work you may have saved on your hard drive, BACK IT UP !!! - use a usb jump drive, or if your able to, on cd;s [if you have a writer] the reason i say if your able to, is there is a possibility that all the drivers necessary to write cds might not load. there is a possibility that you might only get the options to install windows, or repair previous installation. try repairing the installation first, but be advised there is still a chance you may loose any saved work. if this happens, do a new install, making sure that you choose the option to allow you to choose the size of each partition. make at least two partitions [which will give you as many drive letters, usually two is sufficient] and install your operating system on 'c', then as you use your computer, make directories on the next drive letter, and install programs that give you a choice on the second drive. that way, if your operating system ever crashes again, you only need to repair/ re-install it, and the information on your next drive letter is saved! many computers come with 'rescue disks' - this will in all likelyhood work, but it will return the computer to the way it was when you purchased it- anything you've added since will be lost! good luck
