    Is there a memory card in your card bay or a disc of somesort in your floppy or cd/dvd drive bay? If so, remove those and try again and let us know more details as asked by GeekUTech.

    May I ask:

    Which operating system are you running?

    Was there any software installed prior to this problem? "This includes updates."

    Was there any hardware installed prior to this problem?

White underscores rock. They let you enter your BIOS password and stuff. Your system has achieved Zen and you're unhappy with that? You better clear up what you wish it would do for you.

I have an acer aspire one zg5 it boots up to the acer logo and begins to start then all of a sudden the screen goes black and a white underscore flases in the top left corner. i called acer yesterday and...


A few things to check
  • If you have any external storage (Hard drive, flash etc) plugged in, unplug and reboot. Your computer is trying to boot from these.
  • Power down the computer and unplug and remove the battery for at least 30 seconds
  • Enter BIOS (generally F9,F10,F11,F12 or del) just mash them all while the logo screen shows and check under boot devices and see if a hard drive is listed. If no then your hard drive is bad and I would send it in if under warranty
Comment back for further assistance.

A black _ in the upper left hand corner (size of underscore)


It is what we call a "Shatted Pixel" and you can fix it by flashing your screen

Need to restore to factory default but my lappy gives me a blank black screen with a blinking underscore on the top left of the screen.


There might be one step you could try to restore the system to factory specifications. When you turn the laptop on, and you see the Acer splash screen, press the Alt-F10 keys together at the same time, and this should hopefully bring the Acer eRecovery system up, provided that your computer has the built-in recovery partition. If it asks for a password, try using the default of "000000". If that doesn't work, then a password has been entered into the system, and there is no way to reset it, however there is a way to find out what the password is, however it does require the use of the Ubuntu Operating System (which is free to download, here)

Acer aspire 5100 won't start


I don't what to say about that. I have never come across that problem before. Have you tried pressing F8 as soon as you turn it on? Have you put a windows disc in to see if it will boot from the disc? The only info I could find on PXE is at this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preboot_Execution_Environment Maybe you can get a better idea of what it is and how to fix it if the options above do not work. Good luck.

It's not working!


It seems to be a software failure. Try using your recovery CD to sort it out. If it continuous then i would recommend a clean install if there's nothing that important on your laptop.
