Hello tingle_nick. Open your computer, sometimes when you put the computer in the car, some of the components, such as memory, add-in cards can move a little bit due to vibrations. So open it and make sure all the cards are tighly installed. Also make sure the CPU FAN sits tighly on the CPU.
please let me know if you still have the same problem after you performed this.

The hard drive does not "power up". The green


I'm assuming this is a USB external drive. It's likely that the drive is failing, but to find that out for sure you'll need to remove the actual hard drive from the housing, insert it in a computer as a slave drive, and run a diskchk on it to see if it's responding correctly. If that test is successful (ie., it tests OK and you can access the drive as a slave in another computer) then it's just the USB interface on the housing that's bad. You can always just get another housing (they're inexpensive and lots of them).

Hope that's helpful.

If you don't see a POST/BIOS screen pop up then the issue is hardware based, the easiest way to get this resolved is to get it repaired or replaced under warranty, check your warranty here:

if it is under warranty then you can go to the follow page to initiate a service request:

If the laptop is not under warranty, take it to a computer shop (you may end up having to pay a bit of money for the repair)

Hello,

You are trying to install windows xp? The normal windows xp cd will not have drivers for newer laptops. You will get this error message.

What you need to do is to try using acer recovery instead.

Acer machines should have a build in recovery, hold down ALT and presson F10 repeatedly when you power on the machine, keep pressing every 2seconds until acer recovery comes up, if it doesn't come up then yourmachine probably doesn't have that option, the laptops mostly have it.

If you are unable to do the above then you may be able to order recovery discs from ACER --https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=Acer

perhaps you might need to reset or enable the correct boot sequence in the Bios settings of the pc.
On some pc's you press F2 whilst booting to get to the boot sequence pages,,,,navigate then using the "tab" of arrow keys ,
Familiarise yourself with these setting and pages you wiill have a chance to save and exit.
Press enter to change a value or reset completely to default setting if you wish
Goto "boot sequence and learn how to get the pc to boot from different devices

There could be tons of reason for a computer not starting up! the first thing I would replace would be the power supply, then the memory sticks or even the entire motherboard could cause it. does the computer beep any tones when you first hit the power supply, no? replace the power supply unitassy.techman

My pc won't work!


Assuming you get 2 beeps on boot up, take the side off your pc and see if the whirring sound is coming from your hardrive, if so you may have a damaged sector on your hardrive where the boot sector is. If you have a Windows XP disc come back here, if not you need to take your hardrive to a friends pc and set your hardrive as the slave drive before connecting up. When booted up go to My computer and right click on your hard drive (could be 'D' drive or 'E' or 'F')depending on other pc. Go down to properties then tools tab and click error checking and let the system check for errors and automatically repair them. Your rating is importanat
