How do I fix Acer Travel-Mate 5744, The laptop cannot boot. There is a brief Brand Name Acer and then it goes back off.


Heating the motherboard enough to repair a dry joint is rather folly. It will do more harm than good unless you heat both sides simultaneously at controlled temperatures..

Remove hdd and RAM. See what happens when you try to boot. You should get a DOS screen. If not, replace the motherboard.

Can I take a working SATA ACER notebook HD and put it in an ACER with 44 pin IDE?


Just check whether your hard disk is in good condition., what is the health percentage., It has any bad sector or weak sector,. before changing.,..(because if u use convertor it should work)
use harddiskscential for performance of your hard disk
SATA to IDE adapters any good

Computer wont boot


That sounds like you have a dead hard disk drive if the hard disk drive is dead then you will need to have it replaced there is a way to check if it is dead or not, you will need to go into the bios for most it's usually the hi lighted tab when the bios comes if its dead the hard drive slot should say empty or none if it's not dead it will show the hard drive info

Acer aspire 5740-5255 issues with hard drive; trying to restore


Hi and Welcome to Fixya!

If you're having an issue with the hdd or with windows, be sure to backup your files first before doing the restore.

First press Alt+F10 immediately after pressing the power button when you boot up the laptop. You will see Acer Recovery Management, select "restore system to factory default settings" then follow the instructions.

Hope this helps!

Unable to boot from CD: acer 5740


Dear user,

You did not mention the make and model of your computer which is required for the best help.

To change the bootable device you need to go to bios setting. Depending on your computer make and model the way to go to bios could be different though generally you can go to bios by continuously tapping on F1 or F2 or F9 or F10 or F11 etc The moment you press the power button and you see flashing brand scree like dell, hp etc. start tapping on F1 or F2 or F9 or F10 or F11 only one key at a time.

The best option is to install any version of windows is to use Wintobootic search and download it on a computer. Use any storage device like external hard disk or pen drive. make sure the storage device is completely blank when you make it bootable. insert your windows CD and Open wintobootic, select source and make bootable storage device.

Installing windows on acer notebook help


you cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.

to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.

Acer aspire 5920-6864 wont boot up


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try:
  • "Press F2 to Enter System Configuration Utility";
  • determine if the hard disk could be detected by the CMOS/BIOS;
  • if yes, possibly corrupt partition would need re-partition/re-format and re-installation of Vista;
  • if no, possible faulty hard drive and would require replacement.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
