Why do not restored disks work for Acer Aspire M1100?


Turn off the computer Henry then turn it back on and hold down the alt key and tap F10 and make sure you remove any disks from the CD drive.
It would appear that the hard drive is having boot sector issues.

My acer aspire m1641 lost operation system,


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

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.

My Toshiba Laptop monitor just died and I want to transfer the data (windows xp) from the hard drive onto my Aspire AM1610 desktop (windows vista). How can I do so?


Hello,

1. Remove the hard drive from Toshiba (most probably its a 3.5" one)
2. Borrow or purchase an external box which supports IDE 3.5" drives
3. Connect to USB port of Aspire
4. From under "My Computer" you should be able to see some contents of the drive
5. To access all contents, you need to change owner ship under folder options.

Good luck

Acer aspire wont start past boot screen


May be the hard drive is not detecting properly on the computer.
Try resetting BIOS.
If that doesnt help, try checking your hard drive on a different computer or using some 3rd party HDD checker.

I have an acer aspire that will not power up. The fan and led light up but doesn't seem to be powering up the motherboard. I've tried acouple other power supplies but still no results.


i had a similar problem a few weeks ago and after much effort, i changed my hard drive and it seemed to sort out the problem. i also found that the leads that were powering up the hard drive seemed to not be working so had to use some of the others in the motherboard.
try this i hope it helps but it did for me

ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?


If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.
