If it won't boot up it could be a virus or MBR is corrupt.

download and open zipped file, create bootable cd by burning .iso on to cd. boot from cd select antivirus and check system in dos shell.

If the MBR is corrupt you could try maxblast / powermax by maxtor.

I have an Acer Aspire One AOD250 that will not load windows xp normally. It will only load in safe mode. When I turn on the computer it just hangs on the Windows XP page. What can I do?


Boot into Safe Mode with Command Prompt (F8 during startup)

run this command once it's loaded: chkdsk /r

Let me know what happens after normal startup again.

Acer aspire 5100 stops at agpcpq.sys and keeps rebooting. Will not boot up normally, safe mode, or any other way. Booted off of install CD and ran chkdsk /r. No luck.


Hi,
Boot from the CD again and this time run chkdsk /f
This command will try to fix any errors with the file system and check for and recover bad sectors.



Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5100 Stuck in eRecovery boot loop.


You are going to need a boot up partition manager likeon the Ultimate Boot CD (ultimatebootcd.com). Boot to it, go into the partition program, then set the active partition back. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Xp logs on then logs off immediately on acer 5100


I'd suggest booting into Safe Mode (press F8 after the POST information is finished on bootup) and then you should see an option for Administrator. If you can sign in successfully there, go to Control Panel and create a new account under User Accounts. Boot normally after that and see if you can sign in the new account.

Two questions: 1) is this XP or Vista? and 2) did you recently make any significant changes to the software (namely try to change the Certificate of Authenticity)? If what I suggested works, I'd say boot into Safe Mode again and then run System Restore for Windows. Set the system back to about a week ago and try logging in normally.

Windows failed to start !...


Hi,
Boot your computer with the recovery CD In the Drive.
You should get the option ** Boot From CD**
highlight click Yes, and overwrite the O/S.
This will re-install windows over your existing version, replacing any corrupt-deleted-missing Files.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
