Crossquestion: Does the progress bar hang/stop/freeze there or does it move on "jitterly" for ever.?.

Boot up with your windows XP Professional CD. After the CD has loaded everything you'll be given 3 options. One of them is "...Recovery console", so press the "R" button on your keyboard to access the recovery console. It will ask you " to which windows installation would you like to log on to; so you enter the required OS installation (usually "1") then, it will ask you for your administrator password, so you type it in.

Now for the "coding": Type in "hkdsk /r" withour the quotes, a checkdisk will run through 5 steps checking your disk for faults and wil attempt to repair. IT WILL TAKE A WHILE. Standardly between 30minutes and 1 hour. if the chkdsk is completed, type in "fixboot" without the quotes , confirm with yes if prompted, then after the fixboot has finished, type in "fixmbr" without the quotes, confirm any promps with "yes" or "y". Reboot your machine when completed.

Secondly, your drive might be heavily fragmented. If the previous "fix" does not solve the issue. In that case, you could unplug your drive, slot it into another machine and defrag it using (recommended O & O defrag = 3party defrag program and use the "space method"). Not only will your pc boot up fine, it will also operate much faster and start up quicker.

If the previos two fixes don't work, you can also try getting in in safe mode, last known good configuration by using the "F8" option; just after your pC starts up keep on pressing F8 on your keyboard until a selection menu appears with the mentioned options.

Thirdly, sadly to say; your drive might contain bad sectors meaning that it is corrupt or broken. The bad sectors lie on your "boot" section of your HDD rendering your hdd unable to start up. In this case, you COULD still recoer data from your drive, low level format it, and it would work fine again. But that lies far "beond the scope of this Post"

The Computer won't get to the Desktop Screen. It stops the process of logging in at a screen that shows a loading bar that keeps repeating.


You will need to either, re install the operating system or do a system restore. The latter is available on the F8 screen (press at computer start.)

My Acer Aspire won't boot up past the Window's Loading bar


Log in to safe mode by pressing F8 during startup, if you see windows loading you have missed your window to push the F8 key. When the options menu comes up choose safe mode.
While in safe mode if it loads, click Start > Computer (My Computer) > right click on your ‘C’ drive and click properties > click the ‘tools’ tab > click the ‘Check Now’ button under ‘Error-checking’ > make sure the options ‘Automatically fix…’; and ‘Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors’ is checked. A dialogue box will come up stating “windows cannot check the disk”, just click the ‘Schedule disk check’ button and restart your computer. When the computer starts up a check disk will start, let it run. you might want to go do something as the check disk may take up to and sometimes longer than an hour.
Let me know if that helped, and please rate me after, thank you.
