Have gone to black!

I have an Aspire 5000 laptop. It was working fine last night - logged in today, get an Acer screen for one second then screen goes to black. Get a message "....missing or corrupt: WINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM". Can attempt repair with Setup CD-Rom? Can I purchase these someplace? I have 1 & 3; not 2. Is there something that I can do without the cd's? I'm not tech minded at all so apologize if this question is too elementary!

The error: Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt;
WINDOWS\SYSEM32\config\system

You can attempt to repair this file by loading the Win CD into your cdrom drive. Start the PC & press the F5 key every 2 seconds & windows boot menue will load.
Choose the cdrom drive that has the Windows CD in.

Select "r" at the first screen to start repair.
Once back in windows run a full system virus scan.

Good luck & have a great day!

    Ummm, you can call your Mfg & ask which CD has the windows operating system on ( & where on the CD is it loacated), or you can try & find a friend who does own a windows CD that is the same version of windows as yours. Your windows CD key for your system will work with any same version windows CD. Still no luck? Try this site; http://www.restoredisks.com/

    And no your questions are just fine.. No worries mtinmaine.



    Enjoy your day!

I have an acer aspire 3000 I logged off last night and today went to turn it on it powers up but it won't display anything just a black screen


I think your OS might have gone..... So try installing an OS CD in it and see if it displays something or not. If not then your display is gone. You have to repair it in a repairing shop.

Once i log onto my acer aspire one D255 the screen goes black and it wont even show me the task manager. i have already re booted and shut down


test it in safe mode. if it works, do a restore to a previous working date or last known-good configuration. if you cannot get to the Windows log in at all, reinstall your OS. if nothing shows up on the screen from the time you power it on, test an external display and if it does not work, sounds like your video card is faulty and needs a replacement

Acer aspire 3610 graphic or battery problem?


It sounds like your backlight is damaged. On some units this can be replaced on its own. On others, it requires the entire LCD to be replaced. I'll see if I can find out which this is, in your case, and find you a part number.
