Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I have an Acer Aspire 3680, I had to do wipe my hard drive clean and do a full recovery. I have the discs from Acer for my laptop. I performed the steps like the instructions said. Well for some reason its goes through all the necessary steps and then when my computer reboots, it says C drive needs to be checked for inconsisities and its fixes the problem. But when I reboot after that its says it caanot find the operating system to reinsert the system disc. Well that doesn't do anything. So I redo the recovery and now it takes like 5 hours to reformat the hard drive and once that finishes I insert the next disc like instructed but all it does is says its copying files and I don't see the light flashing where the disc is inserted. Can someone tell me what may be the problem of why its doing this. Also, I had to replace the hard drive like 6 mos ago. Don't know if that has anything to do with it but wanted to mention it. Any help would be appreciated...and if possible explain in detail becasue I'm not all the techinal savy...thanks all.
Sounds like the hard drive still when i re install on mine i take out hard drive re instert juast to be sure its in nice and straight no bent pins ect pop in your windows disc and turn on it normally says press any button to boot from cd so tap a button then you should follow the guide for install not repair then do quick format it wont take as long and is goos enough let it go to the point ware you can see a basic list of size of your hdd and partions just allow delete every thing then you should just see unpartioned space if 40gb then it would be 39000mb ect then install there that makes sure that nothing else is on you hdd that could mess with the boot if you are still not sure email me and i can send you a more detailed set by set guide its firstname.lastname@example.org
