Try to run again the system restore cd, what OS you are using? is it old or new acer laptop?
if you have new laptop with Vista OS it should be ok.
if you have new laptop design for vista but rather installed XP maybe you will encounter difficulties loading drivers if you dont have xp driver cd (acer provided)
if you have old laptop with XP OS it should be ok.
if you have old laptop w/ lower memory and trying to install Vista it will not work or you will incounter difficulties

It seems that your OS has registry problem, there are only two ways to fix it:-

1) Re-install your Windows with Re-partition your drives (In that case you have to take backup of your all data.)

2) Start PC in Safe mode, then download a reliable program like i always use Reginout to fix my OS registry properly.

Thanks

How to restore factory settings on a dell inspiron 230 using disk


Hi,
if you want to reinstall OS:
Insert the disk, it should automatically open the install.exe thing and you'll need to follow the instructions.

if you want to restore the computer to factory settings and reinstall OS:
turn off your PC
keep pressing the key for boot menu it's F8 or F12 or F11 depending on the PC's manufacturer.
Then there will be either a boot menu or a "Do you want to do a system restore":
a) system restore, keep pressing the key and it will load. Then follow the instructions
b) if it's boot menu, insert the disk, and then select the option which says to load from the CD/DVD. Then follow the instructions.

NOTE - PLEASE BE CAREFUL, IF MAKE ANY MISTAKE, COMPUTER MAY NOT RECOVER.

Hi, Everytime I turn on my DELL Dimension 5150 I am faced with the following message: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. UNMOUNTABLE...


This sounds like it can not mount your boot file from hard drive which needs to load windows. Sometimes this will happen if you leave a floppy, cd or some kinda usb flash drive in computer when rebooting and it does not happen always. I would try to boot in to safe mode as message is saying. To boot in to safe mode modet computers use F8 key. Turn off your pc and then as soon as you push power button start tapping key F8 located on top of keyboard. You can stop once you get screen that says Advanced startup menu. Choose option Safe mode and press enter. You will need to use arrows to make selection. Once you choose safe mode wait for the loading to be done and then choose ether your windows name or Administrator. Once in safe mode you will get error message just ignore it and press yes. When windwos comes up try to do a restore to previous date. Go to start-programs-accessories-system tools-system restore.in system restore choose restore to earlier time and on the calendar choose date that your computer was working fine. I usually go even week prior to when computer stopped working. Your data will be saved but if you have installed some programs you might have to reinstall them. Hope this helps.

Hi my acer dosnt recone usb


Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Restore

When System Restore loads, click Next. Now, find a bold date on the calendar when the computer did recognize USB and click Next. Click Finish.

When the computer restarts, your USB functionality should be restored. If not, the problem is most likely hardware and not software.

HP Desktop keeps rebooting itself


Hi Julie, the boot order is not correct. You need to change the order to boot to you're cdrom first than to you're hard disk drive.
To change that order go to the boot section of you're bios. Move to select you're cdrom & press enter on the keyboard & a list will open. You cam move devices up & down by pressing the + or - keys. Once you have corrected the boot order save & exit.
As the pc begins to start back up, press the F8 key every 2 seconds. A window will open, look for ( Disable automatic restart on system failure ). Choose the option. Windows should continue to load windows. If you see any error messages write them down & post them here.
If windows does not load continue following as mentioned below.
Check if the PC continues to reboot itself. If it continues to do so than you're windows boot files may be corrupted or worse. Load you're restore cd or you're windows cd into you're cdrom drive & restart you're PC. You should see. to load the cd press any key... (Press the space bar). You're cd will start to load. If you're using windows or the restore cd follow the on screen instruction to reinstall windows (ONLY). Doing a reinstall will not earse you're personall data. Do not format you're drive, (Yet). Finish installing windows. The PC will restart once or twice & you will see ( to load from CD press any key... ) Do nothing, windows will continue installing. When finished run windows update till there are no more updated. Some programs will need to be reinstalled, like printer software.

Post back if you need more help or have questions.
Good Luck Julie!
Mike
