Enable disk-to-disk recovery
On boot, press <F2> to enter BIOS. To enable disk-to-disk recovery (hard disk recovery), activate the BIOS utility, then select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen. Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled. Save and reboot. While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to enter the recovery process. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

NTLDR missing on XP desktop


NTLDR is the boot loader for windows XP. This is the part the kick starts the entire process of XP loading. It is located at C:\NTLDR One of the easier ways to fix this is Either boot in to the recover console from a Windows XP disc, or download Hiren Boot CD, burn it to a disc. Insert the CD into your Dell and reboot the computer. Note you may need to enter BIOS and enable boot to CD/DVD. Once at the Hiren menu, select Boot Mini XP. Once the Mini XP loads you can copy NTLDR loader from the mini xp to your C:\ drive. Then remove the disc and reboot the computer.

You need a Windows OS install or upgrade disc appropriate for the one on your computer (including the service packs you have installed). The Acer disc will only restore to the original configuration. You will need to try to get an OS disc from Microsoft (difficult if your computer is out of warranty) or from someone who has one. Try locating a Windows User's Group (many of the members have multiple OS discs and will lend them out) in your area or a local repair person. Then you can use the Recovery Console.

Alternatively, get a Unix CD and an external hard drive or optical disc writer. Boot from the Unix CD (usually you can press F12 to access the choose boot location). Then plug in the USB hard drive or optical disc drive. Mount this disc and copy your important data from the non-bootable disc to the external media. Then run the Acer disc and download all the updates before trying to reinstall software and return the files to your machine from the .

In Win7, everyone can create this from Start > All Programs > Maintenance > Create a System Repair Disc. (So then you get one burned from any Win7 computer as long as you match Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate.)

I hope this helps.

(please note that if your restore disc provides an OS earlier than XP SP3, Windows Update will not work. You will have to manually find the updates on microsoft.com)

Black screen and windows won't load


It's possible that Windows got corrupted if you can enter the Setup page. Will you also try to boot up on Safe by pressing F8 during boot up. If Windows loads up on Safe mode, you may try System restore. If not, run a repair using the recovery disc of windows so you can recover all your files. If none of these resolved the issue, you have to do clean installation using the CD.

When you boot up start pressing F8 and you should get a Windows startup page with more options. If you do select Safe Mode

Acer M3100 crashed


I'd suggest there is a possible hardware error. You need to get into the bios and check the temperatures they'll be under 'system health' or similar. Also might be worth running a ram check. Download 'windiag' it's a microsoft program designed to check your ram and it is very good.
