Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

My Acer netbook will not boot all the way. The screen showing that Windows XP is starting shows up, but then it stops at the screen that asks me whether I want to go into safe mode. I tried pressing F8 and disabled automatic restart so I could read the codes on the blue screen. Codes are: 0X00000073 (0X00000001, 0XC000017D, 0X00000001, 0XF749BBB8)

Hi, STOP Error 0x00000073: CONFIG_LIST_FAILED STOP error 0x73 means that one of the top-level registry keys, also known as core system hives, cannot be linked in the registry tree. STOP code 0x00000073 may also display "CONFIG_LIST_FAILED" on the same STOP message.
This can be either SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE or DEFAULT. One common reason for this to happen is if you are out of disk space on the system drive (in which case param 2 is 0xC000017D - STATUS_NO_LOG_SPACE)
This is a serious situation. What has happened to the PC? Was there a power failure? Sudden restart? I cannot say exactly that this is the problem. We have to analyze further.
Here are some steps and information to help you.
First of all make sure you have ENOUGH DISK SPACE in your SYSTEM PARTITION (Volume). STATUS_NO_LOG_SPACE means that logs and hive enumeration is not possible due to lack of the space. System drives has page files on it as well so First thing you have to do is to save some SPACE. If you have Windows DVD (or CDs - use CD1) just insert it and boot from CD/DVD. Go to Recovery Mode (Key is R). In the recovery mode Type DIR. If you receive an Error you have to type chkdsk PartitionName: /f /r As an example if your system drive is C that would be chkdsk C: /f /r ( Spaces between C and /, /f and /r ) Then the disk will be checked for bad sectors. Partition table will be fixed to normal.
If you do not receive an error and if you could see the files: Delete some files using DELETE command. (Use with caution - Try delete ? or delete /? for a list of OPTIONS). Create some space (If you use Vista make sure you have at least 1GB Empty Space. A calculation. You have to have at least 1GB + Space for the Page File. Page file uses 1.5 x your RAM Size GB space.). Then Boot the machine and check. That should work.
This post has two parts since its too long.

    Using Vista Disk: (From Microsoft Support)


    Try Startup Repair from the Recovery Console (if you have one) or from a Vista disk - if you do not have a
    Vista disk you can borrow a friends (they are not copy protected) or make one. Also your System maker will sell the physical disks cheap since you already own Windows.

    Also from the COMMAND PROMPT of Recovery Console (if possible) or a Vista disk

    SFC /scannow
    Hit Enter

    and after that runs

    chkdsk /f /r
    Hit Enter

    ( Spaces between C and /, /f and /r )

    Retry Startup Repair after Chkdsk.

    If needed after those you retry System Restore from the Recovery or Vista disk.

    Sorry I didn't see that you use Windows XP. Anyway the solution is the same for Windows. If you have a recovery disk you can use it. Or follow the steps.


    If you are able to boot you can check the Event Viewer and / or do a System Restore.


    And scan your machine for Viruses as well!

I forgat my. Administration user account and I need to axces to my acer one


1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ++ keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2nd Method:
A. Boot using Windows XP Setup CD and follow the instruction like Accepting EULA, etc.
B. When it asks to repair your existing Windows installation, accept it and press "R" to run the repair.
C. Setup will start repairing your Windows and will start copying files, etc.
D. After a few minutes setup will restart your system and when it restarts don't press any key when it shows "Press any key to continue..." otherwise Setup will start from the beginning. Don't press any key and setup will resume where it left.
E. Now it'll start doing other tasks and will show a small progressbar with a few details in left side.
F. Look carefully at the details and when it shows "Installing devices", press +F10 keys in your keyboard.
G. It'll open a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press .
H. It'll open the same "User Accounts" window which you see in Control Panel.
I. Now you can remove or reset any account password without any problem.

Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.

To stop acer logo before starting windows xp


Well, Firstly this might be a extreme case but is to reformat your hard drive removing any manufactures partition, and reinstalling the Operating System, but what i would do first is the go to start---run---(type this command and hit enter)"msconfig" the system configuration window should pop up. Go to the boot tab and place check mark in the box which says "No GUI boot" you mat also change the timeout seconds there too. hit apply then OK and reboot your system.

hope this works for you. let met know.

Just purchased acer aspire one 150-1786 netbook


You say you just purchased it, It must be under warranty, take it back. If its not under warranty it could be a number of things. removing and replacing the ram is the easiest thing to do. Does anything show up on the screen when you turn it on?
