    Please Help!!!

    I purchased an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop and it was supposed to be loaded with vista but when I start it up it reads " PXE-E61 : Media Test Failure Check Cable" after that it reads no bootable device--- insert boot disk and press any key.



    I tried installing a fresh copy of XP and it says there is no hard drive.



    I have already tried changing the SATA config in bios but it still does not work.



    So I paid 40 bucks for the recovery disks from ACER that were supposed to fix the problem but still no hard drive found!!!!

    I know the hard drive works and I even checked for physical damage but it looks brand new.



    I am able to get into Bios (F2) but not recovery mode (alt & F10) or safe mode.

    PLEEEEASE HELP ME

    e-mail me @leviferguson@gmail.com



    Thanks in advance for any support or advice

Habibi,
to install XP:

1). you must have Windows XP setup disk.
2). If your HDD is SATA interface then error message will be raise...No Hard Disk Found. To fix this problem goto BIOS setup and Make SATA disabled. then try to install.

For more help just Ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal

Hi! May I ask help? When I'm using skype, the


Hi

do you have the user manual that came with your laptop this should show you were the camera enable key is

the manual may even be allready installed in your documents or programs its worth a look

i dont know what make your laptop is but if you go to the official website of the laptop eg

if a acer type in your browser www.acer.com if hp www.hp.com if toshiba
www.toshiba.com etc etc

then search your model and look for the manual and download it saving it to your desktop or documents for future use but you will need adobe reader installed to be able to read it
you can get that from www.adobe.com its a free download but most modern laptops comes with it pre installed

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

You may want to consider upgrading rather than downgrading.

How can i re boot my computer as bought


You need to reinstall Windows again from scratch using the Recovery CD, if you have not got it you can purchase one from Acer.
Otherwise you nee a Windows installation CD with the product installation code and after you have installed Windows you need to install the device drivers for the devices that are installed on your Acer.

You can download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support :-

Intergrated webcam not working


If it's not physically damaged you can fix it yourself. Could be a driver conflict, have you installed any new programs lately?

In your Start menu search, type "Device Manager". Open DM and click the + next to "Imaging Devices". Find your webcam and double click it. What does it say on the "General" tab for "Device Status"? You can go to the Driver tab and "Update Driver". Try letting Windows find the best driver for you. If it tells you that you already have the best driver installed, but it still won't work, try uninstalling the driver and updating it again.

Your webcam drivers can also be found on your recovery discs, and Acer's website.

Installing XP/downgrading from Vista


you can not install under windows environment if it is a down grade. i thought maybe that is how you are doing because you said when you click intall...?? you have to boot your XP home from the cd drive and there you follow the instructions on how you wanted it installed. in XP series, you only get to use the mouse when windows is almost ready for intallation. but initial setup is in DOS mode only.
