Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
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 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.
