    I got the same problem on my emachines, trying to load xpsp2, or xpprosp2, but when I loaded winXPsp1, and then upgrading to Service Pack 3, I had no problem.

    which OS are you trying to install?

The hard drive may not be bad, download MaxBlast Powermax as a bootable cd and run. Choose the option to re-certify hard drive. This option will not erase anything, just insure the hard drive is ok. If the MBR (master boot record) is corrupt it will attempt repair. If the re-cert goes ok, remove cd and reboot. If the OS still fails, re-install cd and choose option to low level format. This sets the hard drive to all zeros and will be detected as a RAW drive. Now reload OS. LINK

Your problem is that your boot information is corrupted.. This is caused when the sector where the data is stored becomes a bad sector.. Reinstalling windows shud solve the problem.. You may contact me if u still have the problem

Acer extensa 4630z I am trying to reboot Vista but I cannot get to the proper screen. I can get no further than Edit Windows boot options for: Microsoft Windows Vista


You may have to get a CD/DVD of Vista from your friend or associate for reinstallation of the operating system. If you go to Windows 7 or 8.1 you would be better off than waste time with Vista and all of its problems. If the CD Drive is not working, get an External USB CD/VDV drive from WalMart. They are not expensive and they come in handy at times. Plug the external CD/DVD into a USB port and start up the computer seeking the new device. Run the Software the same as you would from your unstable device.

How do i turn off safemode on my acer aspire 5332 tryed rebooting but that hasnt worked. its even disabled my internet acess


You can't turn off safe mode, it means a serious problem has occured in the software of the operating system. In most cases this fix will require you reload the operating system using the recovery disks you either made when the computer was new or you can buy them from the parts dept of the manufacturer.
