This is either a corrupt file system or a bad hard drive. You'll need to boot from a Rescue CD like BartPE or a Windows CD and run chkdsk on the drive to see if the file system has just become corrupt. If that fails, you may need to run "fixboot" and "fixmbr" from the recovery console. If those fail, or if chkdsk comes back and says it can't repair the damage, then you probably need a new hard drive.
You can do it without disk to but for it should be hiddden partition is installled when your vista is load first time.For that There is one option in bios D2d enable it .then save settings. For enter bios when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then go to main menu find D2d then enable then save and exit. Then when it restart press ALT +F2 then you see recovery mode follow the procedure and wiped acer. But if there is not any recoverry then you need recovery disk.
other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time
repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of
opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts
Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:
“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”
If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.
If you see this: “Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”
it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you
now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on
your screen after a short pause..
In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.
The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs. This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine. If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.
I wiped out my Acer Aspire T180 , bought the system and recovery disc from Acer but after loading them it starts to load windows vista little bar goes across with the green in it then the vista backround then a box will pop up saying , there was an unexplained error and windows restarted unexpectedly so you need to restart windows now but then get the same box all over again. HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!
When the computer boots, if it asks for an O.S.
(operating system) hilghlight "Windows Vista" and press enter.
If it asks whether to run Windows Vista or something like:
"Windows Recovery Console (reccomended)", select Windows Recovery Console. Follow the steps until it asks if you wish to run System Restore. Click the appropriate response that basically denies this suggestion. Let it go through the steps (you may need to press "Next").
Once it is done, restart Windows as you normally would.
If the problem persists, try the following:
When the computer boots, if it asks for an O.S.
(operating system) hilghlight "Windows Vista" and press F8.
Now scroll down to something along the lines of:
"Safe mode - core drivers only" and press enter.
When it loads the desktop, it is normal for there to be incorrect graphics, missing desktop image, etc.
Now virus scan the entire computer with every anti-virus and spyware software you have. Fix problems found with the programs as needed. Now reboot the PC as you normally would.
If it STILL doesn't boot correctly, or at all, please say so;
I am willing to provide all my knowlege to help as much as I can.
