Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an acer aspire 5315 and on start up it goes to a screen about windows not starting up correctly gives option to start in safe mode, last known good configuration, and start normally. If I choose to start normally it goes to the windows xp start screen for a couple of seconds then goes to a blue screen for less than a second not even long enough to read then restarts and same thing over again. If I choose safe mode it gives me a list of things in a msdos screen then back to the blue screen then restarts? Any ideas?

This can be caused by a hardware failure (e.g. hard drive, etc.) or an operating system (OS) issue. Either way I would recommend taking it to a computer repair shop so they can diagnose the issue.
If its an OS issue most likely the cheapest way to fix it will be reloading the OS on a new hard drive(because its cheaper to buy a hard drive then have a company backup your data) then plug in your old hard drive to get access to your data.

Hi,

You can try repeatedly pressing F8 when you first turn it on.

It'll give you a list of options called the 'Advanced Boot Menu'.

From here you can try the following options.

'Repair your Computer' (System Restore)
'Safe Mode'
'Last Known Good Configuration.'

Good luck.

Boot it up in safe mode, then shut it down (start menu, shut down), and start it back up again.. if it still give you that screen then it could mean when you dropped it a piece of hardware (like the wi-fi- card) came loose. You could then pop open (assuming you have no warranty on it) and just pull parts out one by one and re-seating them.

Booting problem


You may have to boot from a CD and make a repair.
Once logged in the CD, choose repair option (Recovery Console), and type these three commands:
1) fixmbr (wait til it finishes)
2) fixboot (wait...)
3) CHKDSK (this will take longer than the previous two.
Your laptop may now boot normally. I think your laptop doesn't have an internal CD-ROM so you may use an external USB CD.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
