Hello,
There are two options.
Either it is a software Problem or a Hardware one.

To troubleshoot this you will need to check the hardware .
Remove any modem, network card, or other device that is attach to the motherboard.
Secondly you will need to check the memory. If there are two present, remove one by one and test accordingly.
third thing
You can run a check disk.
Boot with a windows cd and run repair.
select repair
and type CHKDSK /r/f
ok
try this
any other help
you are most welcome.

When I turn on my acer netbook a message comes on that says a recent hardware or software change might have caused windows not to start successfully.


It sounds like a software or driver problem.
You could try running Last Known Good Configuration and see if rolling back to a known good will work.
This video will help you to run last known good configuration, it shows Windows 7 but if your not running Windows 7 all the versions of Windows run last known good config in the same way.

You are experiencing either a memory issue or OS problem.

First, remove all your memory modules and insert one at a time to test.

If still a problem, try Windows Repair.

If necessary, reinstall Windows.

Hope this helps.

You must have come in contact with a virus. Does your friend have the capability of slaving your hard drive to his to remove your data. If so, then he or you can reinstale the operating system.

When you boot up your computer, press the F8 key until you get some choices such as Safe Mode and Command Prompt. There will be an option for Last Known Good Configuration. Select this and hopefully it will restore your computer settings to the way it was before this happened.

Northgate not booting correctly from HD


If you can't get it to boot from last known config, safe mode, or anything else, you won't get it to boot from CD. Sounds to me as if the HD has failed.
