You have to reinstall your operating system. There is no other option. Bcoz every time the operating system try to operate hardware it receive wrong info from the hardware drivers. Contact me again for more info

    I don't suggest you to get a pirated "windows Xp Sp2 cd" (Easily available in market). Because it is illegal. You Have to get a new Cd of it from Microsoft corporation. Hope you got it about what i want to say. Get an assistance from any Tech body to install windows.

My Acer Aspire 5100 keeps rebooting. This is what the screen says: INTEL UMDI PXE2 REALTEK RTL8139 PCI FAST ETHERNET CONTROLLER PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE PXE-M0F: EXITING PXE ROM That is all...


The error message means that your system is trying to boot from LAN ie... Network boot enabled in your BIOS.

Since the system can't find any where to boot from. It is restarting.

Also probably your bootloader on the harddrive is corrupt. Please reinstall the operating system using a CD/DVD.

My acer 5100 laptop will not boot up. I get


you could try going to the boot menu, and choosing 'last known good', but that is probably not going to work.

you should be able to run a repair off the CD....

the file is a kernel, a neccessary file used by Windows. It may have gotten corrupted or deleted.. possibly by a virus or bad hard drive sector.

get a disc, and run repair, if that doesn't fix it, you may need to re-install a fresh copy of windows, which will over-write all your data. you may be able to boot to that upgrade CD and that may have a repair option...

good luck.

Windows failed to start !...


Hi,
Boot your computer with the recovery CD In the Drive.
You should get the option ** Boot From CD**
highlight click Yes, and overwrite the O/S.
This will re-install windows over your existing version, replacing any corrupt-deleted-missing Files.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.

there is probably a windows update updating on boot up and corrupted, you should be able to boot into safe mode (Press F8 on start up) and a screen option will show, you need to select 'Last known good configuration' and press enter the pc should restart and continue from the last time it worked correctly. It may also in the same menu give the option for a system restore or start windows in safe mode, if you use system restore choose the last system check date and follow the instructions to restore, if you use safe mode you can run the system resore as if you were in normal windows in the accesories menu. When you use system restore or last known good configuration; hopefully the problem will be deleted from the registry and continue to allow anormal boot
