Question about Acer Aspire 9300 Notebook
My Acer 9300 was working fine, the next da I tried to use it , during boot up the screen went black and I recieved the message operating system could not be found. I have no recovery disks and don't know what to do. It was running vista home premium.
Contact Acer and have them send you a new recovery disk. Be sure to have your computers paperwork handy when you talk to them. The problem" operating system could not be found" could be software or hardware related. I'd try to load the OS using the recovery disk first and see if that fixes the problem... mpawlak

If the hard disk is still functional you may have a recovery partition on it, so try this first :
Turn on your laptop. 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 shown, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to enter the recovery process. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
You could miss this process, if it is so try again.
If there is no recovery partition on the hard drive you need a CD revovery kit for your model. Contact Acer support team and ask for it. If you are lucky you will get one for free or you will pay a very affordable price (10-20$). If not, try to find a friend that has the same version of Windows as yours and you can use it with your activation key (you find it on a label on the bottom of the laptop).
If the hard disk is defective you might need another one.
