You need to reinstall Windows again from scratch using the Recovery CD, if you have not got it you can purchase one from Acer.
Otherwise you nee a Windows installation CD with the product installation code and after you have installed Windows you need to install the device drivers for the devices that are installed on your Acer.

You can download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support :-

I bought a systemax computer from a school and can,t get beyond the boot password to see what i bought


I don't know what you mean by boot password, but i am going to assume that you mean the bios password. Disconnect your computer, open it, and remove the CMOS battery. Wait 3 minutes. Boot it up without the CMOS battery; it should say password disabled. Put it back togethter. If it is the regular login password, then make sure your logging in under "this computer", not under the school network. type in administrator as the user name, and login. There shouldn't be a password. If your school technician was smart though, he may have locked the administrator account down too.

I bought a new hard drive for my acer 5100 and it


The different model of hard drive should not make a difference. As long as you are using the same type....IDE or SATA...you should be fine.

If you installed the new drive and now the computer keeps rebooting....you probably need to tell the computer to boot from the CD first and not the Hard Drive. When you first turn on the laptop, boot into BIOS by hitting the DELETE or F2 key....it is normally the Delete key.

This will boot into BIOS where you can find the BOOT OPTION menu and select the CD as the first boot device. This will allow the computer to boot from the Windows CD you should already have in your cd drive.

If this does not help.... I would take the new hard drive out and boot the computer without any drive installed. If you are still in a reboot loop, the problem is not with the hard drive and more than likely an issue with the RAM. To rule out the RAM, take one stick out and see if that makes a difference...repeat with the second stick....

Hope this helps

Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit then it boot with disk then enter in recovery console mode and run this command "fixmbr" without "" then press enter.
Then restart computer and again boot with vista disk this time choose R for repair previous windows then it repair it.

In July 2005 we bought a Dell Dimension 3000 office computer and right from the start we could not connect to the internet or our network. Dell offered no help and just said "reinstall Windows"! Finally,...


Sorry about that here is what you need to read.....

You can set the NIC to On (default), Off, or On w/ PXE. When the On w/ PXE setting is active (available only for the future boot process), the computer prompts the user to press <Ctrl><Alt><b>. Pressing this key combination causes a menu to display that allows you to select a method for booting from a network server. If a boot routine is not available from the network server, the computer attempts to boot from the next device in the boot sequence list.

I bought a Dell inspiron 400 laptop. I will boot


I would take the hard drive to a computer repair shop and let them scan the HDD and remove the infections. They can also repair the windows installation files so it will boot back up. Either way, you do not have to change out the memory unless you want to install more.

My Dell Optiplex 745 "No Boot Device Available"


No boot device means that the computer cannot find a drive that has a operating system files and therefore cannot boot up.
This usually means that the hard drive in the computer is faulty.
You need to get a new hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive, together with the drivers for the computer's installed devices and programs to get a working computer.

Two hard drives Vista and XP not booting


If you would like to start up in the xp ,At computer start up hit F1 or F2 there are so many ways some times its hold the del key ,once your into the BIOS you can change the boot order of your drives to make the drive xp is on load first .You will have to do this everytime or buy a program that will do it for you .I would just leave the power unpluged on one of the drives until you need it that way it will be safe from a virus or if you have a hard drive crash you always have one good drive .Hops this helps.
