No boot

Turn on a working computer with its keyboard plugged in and test if the keyboard is working properly.

If it is, shut down that computer, unplug the keyboard and plug it into the system that is suffering from the missing "NTOSKRNL.EXE" file.

Turn on the system to see if the replaced keyboard resolves the problem.
Press the "F8" key right after the system initializes the boot sequence and before the Windows logo shows up to bring up a menu of boot options.

Choose the "Last Known Good Configuration" option with the arrow keys and press the "Enter" key.
Insert your Microsoft Windows installation disc.

Restart the computer and press the "R" key on your keyboard once you reach the "Microsoft Setup" menu.

Choose the operating system that you wish to repair, type in your admin password when prompted and press the "Enter" key.
Type "bootcfg /rebuild" and press the "Enter" key to rebuild the Windows "boot.ini" file, which may also resolve the issue.

Type "chkdsk /r" and press the "Enter" key to scan the entire hard disk for errors.
Type "exit" and press the "Enter" key to exit the "Recovery Console."

Restart your computer and see if Windows boots properly.

Computer stopped working. Won't reinstall operating system

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue
restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

if you need more help with this post a reply

hope it helps

How do I install Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 5536

The FIRST thing people need to do when proceeding to install Windows 7, is to make SURE there are compatible DRIVERS.

IF the computer manufacturer does not offer Windows 7 compatible drivers, for the computer in question, DO NOT load Windows 7.

[ Drivers are small pieces of software written, so that the Operating System can 'communicate' with a device.

Windows Vista, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
Audio (Sound), Graphics, LAN, and so on, use a chipset.
This chipset is a device.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit, ]

Fortunately I looked, and Win7 drivers are available for the Acer Aspire 5536 Notebook PC,

BEFORE you install Win7, click on the Drivers, and download the compatible drivers for THE device in your computer, and the matching Win7 driver.

Burn them to a CD disk. Have ready to install.

[ Acer doesn't list what each driver is, until you click on Download, at the right side of the driver file.

Let's take Audio for one example.
There are 4 Audio drivers listed.

Click on Download at the right side, of the first Audio driver listed.
In the small window that comes up, you can see it is for WinXP.
XPx86. (Windows XP 32-bit)

It is also for a RealTek audio device. (Chipset)
(All the Audio drivers are)

Click on the second Audio driver listed. (Click on Download)
This one is for Vista
The third one is for Windows 7 that is 64-bit, OR 32-bit.

(Look at the Windows 7 carton. Does it state 32-bit, or 64-bit?
Doesn't matter for the above driver, as it is for both, but other drivers may be just for 32-bit, OR 64-bit.)

Go to Device Manager, and see what each device is.
(Click on the Windows start button, click on Control Panel, click on Performance and Maintenance, then on Device Manager)

Write them down. Download, and burn to disk the proper drivers ]

NOW, with the proper drivers available, proceed to install Windows 7.

(I have been told that some Vista drivers do work for Windows 7.
Need to make sure, as once you install Windows 7, it is a bear to try to reinstall Vista, if Win7 does not work)

Windows does not like to be written over, and Vista has a security measure that is better than previous versions.

Go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, make sure the first boot device is CDROM.

As soon as the computer is started look down at the bottom of the screen.
You won't see the P.O.S.T. screen, but the Acer logo screen.
At the bottom of this screen, states what key to press to enter BIOS Setup.

(Power-On Self Test)

It may state something along the lines of;
enter Setup, or
enter BIOS Setup, or
Enter CMOS Setup. (Old. Doubt it)

This screen goes by f-a-s-t.
You probably won't be able to press the correct key in time, to enter BIOS Setup.
No problem.

Simply restart the computer. As soon as it restarts, start tapping on the appropriate key. (In 2 second intervals)

You may hear a beeping as you are tapping on the key. This is a Stuck Key Error Code. Ignore it.

Should be the DELete key, or F2.

When you enter BIOS Setup you CANNOT use your mouse anymore. You use the Keyboard.

The navigation guide is at the bottom of every screen in BIOS Setup.
It doesn't state navigation guide, however.

There are two major BIOS manufacturers. AMI (American Megatrends Inc), and Award/Phoenix.

There are several versions of each, so I cannot guide you directly.
However if you need help just post what you see, and I will guide you.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My mouse and think pad do not work

There are 2 possible answers to this common issue, the first is that the aspire has a mouse lock. check your keyboard on the function buttons for a picture of a mouse with a line though it, hit function and at the same time press the mouse with the line through it and if its locked off this will turn if back on. The second answer is driver issues, if the first suggestion dont work I would go to the Acer website click on downloads and drivers and enter your model number. Then download and install your think-pad and mouse pad drivers and install.

Just been given a ASUS Eee PC 900, with Linux. It says press the Enter Key, but I can not find a Enter Key as such. What key do I have to press.? Driving me crazy

Well, the Enter key is the one with the symbol of a left-pointing arrow with a short 'up bit' on the right-hand side of it. I think its to the right of the @ sign and on the same row. Incidentally the OTHER left-pointing arrow without the up bit on it is the backspace. Thats up above the Enter key also on the right-hand side of the keyboard. Regards, nicam49

The computer starts and asks whether I wish to use the restore function. The microsoft logo appears just for a moment and then the monitor stays dark. Wonder if it might be a monitor problem

In order for you to rectify if its the display problem meaning the you monitor or if it is your harddrive where your OS is currently installed, try to go to BIOS and see if your display is working there *Turn the Acer Aspire One computer on. Restart the computer if it is already on. *Press the "F2" key on the keyboard to enter the BIOS utility as soon as the "Acer" logo appears on the display. *Press the arrow keys to navigate throughout the BIOS menus. Press "Enter" make a selection. *Press the "F10" key when finished to exit the BIOS. once rectified that it isnt the display that causing the problem then, it must be your harddrive or the OS itself (if OS is the problem then you have to reformat your computer)
Hope this will help.. :)

After installing the router it was working fine. I went in to set up wireless security and now the internet light stays red.

Probably means that the security is turned on, if the wireless doesn't work even after you have entered the right password then press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to restore it to defaults - factory defaults just like it was first powered on.

IntelLoader is missing

I think your computer displays a message that ntldr is missing.

Use the following steps to replace these files. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the optical (CD or DVD) drive and restart the computer.
  1. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD , press any key on the keyboard.
  2. Once in the Welcome to Setup screen, press the R key to repair Windows.
  3. Press the 1 key and then press Enter .
  4. Type the Administrator password at the prompt.
  5. Copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files to the root directory using the following steps:
    1. Type copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\ (assumes the optical (CD or DVD) drive is d) and then press the Enter key.
    2. Press the Y key at the Overwrite ntldr? prompt.
    3. Type d:\i386\ c:\ and then press the Enter key.
    4. Press the Y key at the Overwrite ntldr? prompt.
  6. Once both files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the optical (CD or DVD) drive and type exit at the prompt and then press the Enter key. The computer will reboot.
