Acer 5536 boots up goes to screen to select safe mode, tried both modes but after the selection screen goes blank with a little loading circle but goe sno further, no log in screen or anything, please help


Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

Acer Aspire 5315 Vista Windows boot problem


have you checked if your pc is compatible with win7? use this to check it: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx
and if it is, try to do a clean install. boot from the cd. insert the disc. restart pc, as soon as it has power, press F12 several times and highlight cd/dvd drive or ODD using your arrow keys then press enter. it will load the cd from there. And that should work fine.

Windows vista wont boot!


could be 2 things either your bios or your cd is dirty.
Turn the cd upside down so the silver side is facing you
Put the cd near a light and see if there is anything on it and wash it off and dry it off before you use it
Also while you are at it check to see if there is a deep scratch the problem with cd and dvd drivers is the eye get stuck even on finger prints they are so touchy same as dust ect.
If you need to get into the bios make sure the first boot is your cd or dvd drive.
you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.
Then you use the arrows to move through each menu.
When you get to the boot options menu highlight it.
Then hit the enter button first one should be dvd or cd drive second one should be either HDD1 or HDD0
On the bottom of the bios page it will show how to do the changes
and how to save them then it will go back to the original screen
that you were first at now hit the arrow key to the last menu and hit save and exit it will ask you if you are sure hit the key Y
that should do it.
Happy Holidays
