My acer aspire 7735z turns on but won't boot up


Hello,

your hard disk maybe corrupt.

The operating system is in the hard drive, so if it won't boot, your OS might need to be repaired or reinstalled.

You will be needing OS CD to carry out the re installation

Good luck.

What is the boot order for acer aspire 7741


To use the Acer recovery CD you need to boot up with the CD.
Go into the BIOS setting and scroll through the settings until you come to Boot order. Then move the CD/DVD drive up as the first boot device and the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
When you boot up the Acer with the recovery CD in the CD/DVD drive then it will boot up with the Recovery CD.

I have Acer 1200 Aspire. When I turn it on, it won't proceed past the initial window. It says boot failure.


It almost sounds like your primary boot disk is incorrectly selected in the BIOS. On older machines, the primary disk on the primary cable had to be the boot disk, but nowadays almost any device can be selected as boot disk. Check your BIOS setting and ensure that the hard disk partition that you have Windows installed on is selected as the first boot device. Otherwise, the system may be looking in the wrong place for the OS and giving the boot error.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.
