My Notebook acer travelmate 2450 doesn't start correctly. After boot, only appears the following msg "operation system not found". Futhermore, I can't boot linux or windows by CDROM, because when I open the "boot menu" only has the network drive, my cdrom,my HD and other devices don't appear there. Moreover, in Setup my HDD serial number and HDD model name are with "strange code" visibly an error! I suspect my motherboard is broken. Please somebody help me.

Check with someone you know to see if they have a USB external CD or DVD drive that you can borrow. Then set it to boot from USB. There is also a possiblity that you have a corrupt CMOS fireware. See if you can download an BIOS firmware update and place it on a external floppy and install. Good Luck

If your computer does not have a hidden partition for OS recovery, a recovery CD will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
Order the Recovery Media from Acer https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=acer
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

    Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

  8. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: if your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.

Acer Travelmate 230 laptop starts up shows the Acer screen then gets to the windows loading screen after that the screen goes black and does nothing else. what can i do?


What operating system do you have?

What happened prior to the issue? Did you do an update/ installed a new software in your computer?
Try to boot to safemode:
1. Turn your computer on and tap on F8 before the splash screen appears. 2. You will get a black screen that says Advanced Boot Options. Choose Safe Mode with Networking. 3. If the issue does not reoccur there, the problem might be related to the video card driver. Uninstall the video card driver:
a. Click start, right click on My Computer. Choose properties b. Go to Advanced tab and click on device manager. c. click on the plus sign beside display adapter. d. right click on the video card driver found there and uninstall. It will prompt you is you are sure you want to delete it. Click yes. e. Then restart your computer. Boot to normal mode (just let it boot and do not press anything as you boot the computer)

The issue should not be present in Normal Mode but your screen resolution will be very different (bigger). Download the correct driver for your computer from the links posted below:
video driver 1 or video driver 2

Boot problem with acer travelmate 290 model CL51, only bios working.


if a computer boot up only until the windows xp screen not on windows environment...usually it is because of corrupted system...

your pc will never boot until the logo if there is a problem in your video card,sound card,memory or power supply...

so i suspected that there is a problem in your operating sysyem..try to run system restore if you have...

if not you need to format your operating system so that you can use your laptop again...

note: i have also experienced a problem with boot until the windows logo, but i found out that the problem is not the operating sytem...i found out that my client's capacitors in his motherboard are damaged...maybe due to over use or improper cooling system...if you can check it that's much better so that you can prevent waste of money...

My acer laptop travelmate 2400, stops at the acer dispaly screen?


When asking questions, please let us know what operating system you have, that goes a long way into us helping out....thanks you. You can try to boot into safe mode first, just to see if the laptop will boot into windows period. When the acer screen first appears, tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see a multiboot minu appear, if you di, that is a good first start...now scroll to the "Safe Boot with Networking" and select it. If the laptop boots into safe mode, I suspect something must have been downloaded like a windows update that may not have installed correctly and corrupted the Startup. If you booted into safe mode, send me a message and I'll explain how to restore the system back before you had the problems. If it doesn't boot into safe mode I might be able to help with that too, but I need to know the operating system.

I would recommend using your recovery cd to solve the issue. if you don't have one then it would be best to do a fresh install of the operating system from another cd. if you need to save your files you will have to remove your hard drive and connect it to another computer via usb hard drive enclosure to save your info then place the hard drive back into the laptop and install a fresh copy of windows
