Hi texas bel,
Happy Holidays
well, time to reinstall OS.
Go to BIOS and see if the hard drive is detected fine and 32 bit acces for HD is enable.
2) put your OS CD on the CD and wait to the display tells you to reinstall the OS, continue with instructions on display.
3) Start the Format C: when tells you to do so.
you will be ok.

How do I restore to factory settings . I have restore disc part 900345 when I tried using it nothing really prompted me what to do . Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You need to change the boot order to make the machine read the cd drive first.When starting the computer you need to press F2.This will get you into the start up bios menu.Find the boot order and make it use the cd drive as the first device.Now restart your machine withe the cd in the drive.

System restore disc 1 erased & overwrote hard drive. Second disc won't start. All i get is a lengthy paragraph that boils down to : MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE. PXE M0F: EXITING PXE ROM.\r\n ...

Your computer is using the network-connection to try to connect a "network boot server", to try to load a bootable image across the network.

The 'MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE' is the error-message when no "network boot server" responds to a "network boot request".

The 'EXITING PXE ROM' message is the exit from the P(re) (e)X(ecution) E(nvironment) part of the R(ead) O(nly) M(emory) inside your computer, since the "network boot" did not proceed.

So, insert "Restore Disk #1" and restart your computer, and FORCE it to "boot" from the CD-ROM device -- not from the disk-drive. When prompted, insert "Restore Disk #2" to continue the reinstallation of Windows. When prompted, remove the disk from the CD-ROM device, and restart your computer.

Note that it's also possible that your disk-drive is "dying" -- any attempts to install Windows on it have FAILED. Thus, any time to "boot" from those "not-written" files will cause problems.

After restore with acer discs keep getting disk boot failure. Just fitted new hard drive as old one seized

You instaled the restore disk onthe new HD?

this is a problem with the drive,

try using a different power plug for the drive, check that every thing is pluged in all the way on the drive side and mother board side,
check the jumper in the back of the drive make sure its in the right spot,

If the restore disk worked with the new drive try to rerun them,

It could be a bad drive or bad install,, the restore disk look ok clean?

Dell b130 internal system restoration failed

Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

You are missing boot file for windows to start. If you have a recovery disk, insert it and follow the on screen instructions. If you do not have the reocovery disk, you may need to reinstall windows or contact someone who can reinstall the boot files for you.

Good Luck

I formated my c drive of my acer aspire 1640z, and when i try to restore with my restore cd i get the mesage boot manager is missing.can you help me pls?

Your restore disks also use fdisk and format to do the same thing you did this way by reformatting, but without all these extra hassles. Do you have a primary partition that is in active status? to check use a Windows boot disk or an MS Dos boot disk making sure that they have fdisk.exe,,,and scandisk.exe fdisk and select option 4(display partition information)
2.if the partitions are listed then look for an uppercase A in the status column of your primary partition
3.if there are no partitions listed use fdisk to create new partitions and then use format to format the partitions.
4. then try your restore disks they should work, if you have already done all of this email me and we will move on from there if you are still having the problems. Hoped it helped!!!

My acer 5630 laptop does not boot up

Try reinstalling the OS with your restore disks. It might be that you have HDD failure in which case you would need to replace the HDD.
