If you are attempting to use Recovery and this is happening, Most likely you have a corrupted recovery partition....

If you are attempting to load Windows XP from A CDrom (Externally)
you will need to use an XP Cd that has integrated Sata drivers.. Windows home/pro 32bit does not..

Or Use a Windows Media Center Edition Version

When I boot my acer aspire one, all I see is the windows xp logo as if it is trying to load but this just stays on and the system does not load, can you help please

Try and boot into safe mode. Turn off the computer first.

When the computer starts to load you should see the Dell splash screen first before the XP screen. When you see the Dell screen repeatedly tap the F8 key until you are presented a menu. From that menu you should select Safemode with networking. You will be followed with which operating system to run (XP in your case) then you will see all the drivers scrolling up the screen as they are loaded and if all goes well you should come up to your desktop. A popup window will ask you if you want to continue in safemode and YES is what you select.

From there you should be able to get to system restore to fix the startup issue.

If you are unable to get into the safemode please let me know so we can figure out your dilemma

If you've ever used Windows 7 or xp, chances are you've experienced the lovely shade of blue associated with the famous Windows Stop Error or 'Blue Screen of Death.' This frequent, although less so in newer operating systems, error occurs whenever Windows senses a software, hardware or driver error which will not allow it to continue operating properly. In other words, it happens all the time, for all sorts of reasons.
You will download the cc-cleaner from

And will clean registry. After clean you should uninstall all the driver and install the driver again in shibuda_14.jpgsave mode .

If the problem occurring again follow the below link.

Hope it wll help you.

Brand new acer aspire won't load windows xp

If you can still get into the BIOS, see if you have an option for D2D recovery. if so, make sure it is enabled.

restart the system and hold down Alt+f10. if your recovery partition is still intact, this should start a factory reload of your system.

Sounds like both of you have what is called 'Microsoft Blue Screen Of Death' and is irreversible, but is fixable at the same time. If you need files on your computer then follow these instructions

  1. Turn on computer and Insert Windows XP Installation Disc that came with your computer
  2. Wait until it says 'Press any key to boot from CD....' and press any key
  3. Wait until it comes up with prompts and choose 'Install Windows XP
  4. Choose to install XP without formatting the hard drive and choose a made partition (C Drive) to install NTFS
  5. Install and now your system will be working again. You will be prompted from now on though which Operating System you would like to use. Always select the first one
  6. Enjoy
For if you want to erase the hard drive
  1. Follow steps 1 - 3 in above instructions
  2. Choose 'Format Hard Drive'
  3. Select create partition in Hard Drive and set it to the maximum space and call (C)
  4. Select NTFS and go through instructions
  5. You won't be asked to choose a OS as there is only one to choose from
  6. Enjoy
Hope This Helps
