What you need is a Window XP installer CD which have the SATA driver. Most of the older Window XP CD before 2008 does not support computer with SATA harddisk.

Or

If your BIOS setting permit, change the Harddrive setting eg from IDE to SATA and ICH setting.

Normally when this happen this is a sign that ether there is a problem with the harddrive or the data on it just got corrupted. If you have access to another computer you can try to connect the drive from your notebook to it to see if you can access some the data.

Note if you can access the data and your notebook had Windows 7 or Vista on it you will need a computer with one of those to recover all your data. In addtion you will need to follow the steps at this link to get access to the files in your user profile.

Now if you are not able to access your data this most likely means the drive is bad. Try to do a full format on the harddrive on the other computer. If it works then this means that the drive most likely is good. Note do not do a quick format as this will not fully test the drive.

As for the recover disk since you do not have a ROM drive for your computer you will need to contact ACER and/or look on their site to get the restore program. Then you can install this on a USB thumb drive and this restore your computer.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

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.

Sound issues


The model is suggested to have a "Crystal series" sound card, one link provides older drivers. http://www.acersupport.com/desktop/aspire/html/v70ma_dl.html
Extracting them to a separate folder, letting XP see if it can use them is one solution. Otherwise, see if your model is listed here.
http://www.acersupport.com/notebook/index.html and follow the steps to get XP drivers.

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.

Acer 3000 not loading


Hey,

firts put the original harddrives back in place :)
then you need to enter the 3000's bios If I remember right
thats done by pressing f2 or del in a acer. it should tell you what button is correct on the bootup screen.

Then you need to change the boot order to haveing the dvd/cd drive before the harddrive, since right now its booting strate from the harddrive.

Then you should be able to restore the operateing system with the disks that came with the laptop and or from a normal xp or vista cd/dvd.

good luck!
