Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.

I turn on the computer and windows vista loads but wont go to the login screen. It just sits at a black screen with only the mouse pointer visible. I don't have a vista cd just an upgrade cd that acer gave me to upgrade from xp to vista.

Your only problem is VISTA, go back to xp vista has no benefits at all for normal uses... at least for now. Besides that problem could be caused by too many things and the information you provided is very incomplete...

    I know no windows cd comes with laptops... but what do comes is a restore cd, there is windows and you can restore your system to factory point using that cd. Just follow the instructions on the little manual and if you lost it, just go acer.com there you will find how to, by looking your laptops model.

    if after doing that you still have problems, you surely have hardware problems of some kind and evidently you will have to take your notebook to a technician. good luck

If you can see a mouse pointer, then your monitor is not the issue.
Your operating system is not loading properly. You will need to have you system looked at to determine why your operating system is not loading correctly.

Dell Latitude D800- Keyboard and mouse stop working when undocked.


First update any drivers for your dell.

www.support.dell.com

Is the dock a dell dock, or a universal Dock?

the drivers may need updating.


Some times when you plug a dock in, and turn it on, they will load them into the drivers and when you unplug it, it gets confused and when you boot it up it has to re-install the original drivers and does this while its booting.

This happens alot with the GX620 desktops. If you pull a USB keyboard out while its off and plug it back into a different USB port and tun it on. It wont work right away.

We end up having to let it sit at the login screen for a while till it reloads the drivers to the new USB port.

You will know if yours is doing this as the Hard drive light will be flickering and running.

Try booting it up and letting it load windows and waiting a few minutes.

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.
