First things First!
1) You have a bad hard drive or bad sector on it. depending on driver WD or Seagate use the tools that came with it. test.
2) If you dont know how to perform a format full drive read.

Acer Aspire one 722 windows 7 netbook. "Check cable connection" and "no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key" are two common things appearing. The computer recognized hardrive, hardr


Hello, it looks like somehow the master boot record was erased from the hard drive, maybe viral? You mentioned the hard drive was recognized in the bios correct? If you need data from the hard drive the easiest way would be to pull the hard drive out and use an external hard drive enclosure to remove the data before you erase everything from the hard drive. If you dont need anything thing you can proceed to do a new install of Windows 7. Turn the computer on then hold alt and the f10 key to perform a factory recovery. This will erase everything and reinstall Windows 7. If this doesnt work then you will need a new hard drive and a bootable usb drive with Windows 7 on it. Hope this helps.

Im trying to reformat my sons aspire one notebook and alt and f10 doesnt work could you tell me how else i can do to get it to reformat please


Are you trying to boot from a disk, if so.. Try F8.. if that doesnt work, try F2 and go into system and reorder the boot order and make the DVD drive above the Hardrive this will cause the computer to boot from the reformat disk, if you are trying to reformat from a partition, the put the partition first in the list, hope this helps.

I'm facing major problem of active desktop recovery.Also I'm unable to restore my active desktop.


If all fails, then the last resort would be Reformat Your Computer. Save Everything. When you do a Reformat, all data is lost.
I found this on the web. You can click on the link to see it more in view.

Step 1 ATTENTION!

Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

Step 2 Recovery Disk Creator
Every new windows vista owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows vista you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disks.
REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!

Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows vista is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

Good Luck :0)

Flashing amber light on power button and won't boot but once out of 10 times???


If the computer shuts down after being on, also check that the CPU fan is seated flush on the CPU with thermal compound in between. If the CPU is too hot, the computer will shut down and not restart until cooled down a bit.

Bootmgr error


Hi,
theres several stages involving formating a disk.
this error however, appears to be discribing a boot-manager program.
Try booting with Windows in the actually DVD Drive.
If this does,nt work, re-format the hard-drive. or obtain a setup disk from your computers manufacturer.
i.e Compaq.

How can I change operating systems


Buy the XP UPGRADE. It is around $90 and you can find it just about anywhere thjat sells software. You need at least 512 of memory for it to run smoothly. Once you install the upgrade ME will be gone.
