Question about Computers & Internet
I have an Acer aspire T650 pc. The pc does not boot and continually reboots. Will not even boot in safe mode. I checked the HDD on another machine and repaired xp installation. It works fine on the other machine but does not on the Acer. I have checked all the connections and slots, nothing has worked. Could this be a driver problem or more serious like the motherboard. Any help is appreciated.
Where can I buy a new motherboard of the same make and spec?
Comment by Kevin A, posted on Mar 13, 2008 The reason for this is that the standard XP disks do not have drivers for the SATA disk. When booting from the CD, the internal disk is not recognised and thus invisible to the XP setup program.

I contacted Acer and I was told in order to eliminate a software problem I should carry out a Disk2Disk recovery. I tried this and the problem was solved. No cd's were required, all I had to do was press ALT and F10 when the machine is switched on. This takes you to the recovery part. The machine than recovers to factory settings. Carry out the necessary updates and Bob's your uncle!
My thanks to Kevin and the rest of the team.

I have this same computer and had some problems like this with it in the beginning and it turned out to be the 56K modem... it was bad and since I didn't need it anyways, I just took it out and the computer has worked fine ever since... over a year now! Perhaps you're having the same problem? Or maybe another component is bad? That's where I would start... I'm curious to know if this helps you... e-mail me at email@example.com if this helps or if you need further info.
