Question about Acer Aspire 3050 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an acer aspire 3050 laptop and have reformatted the hard drive. I have installed OS (XPME), all the utilities and the device manager looks to be in good shape. (no yellow question marks) I can't get the wireless icon to show up or activate....This laptop has a button on the front of it, in which I have tried to also get the wireless network to show up....nothing happens....the slider button won't even light up.

I have an Acer Aspire 3050 and it only goes to a black screen that says "Operating system not found" Help Need this working again...


OK, best case scenario is your hard drive is corrupt, worst case, hard drive is dead.

What to do - you could download the hirens boot cd and see if you can rejuvenate the hard drive firstly by going into mini windows and check if you can see the C: drive in windows explorer, if you can thern running chkdsk c: /f might sort it for you.

There are other utilities in the hirens disc that could help but that's where I'd start.

If you're not confident doing this then you might need to take it to your local pc engineer.

Audio service refuses to start


The obvious, is it muted? NO. Disable device in Device Manager, enable device, no change, uninstall audio device, reboot, I don't know your OS, your OS should automaticly ID the audio an add driver. If it does not go to Acer website a download audio driver for your OS. Install manually. You stated,"after installing a hard drive I had from another laptop" . The Harddrive you installed, did you format it and install into this laptop and clone the drive? I am a bit confused by the statment, "after installing a hard drive I had from another laptop"?

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.

Well the first thing that you have to keep in mind before reformatting your hard drive is to ensure the backups of all driver devices on your laptop. Since you already reformatted, the best way is to look up the correct drivers for the Acer Aspire. I would start looking at the Acer site. Go to this site and scroll down to the audio driver. http://www.laptop-software.com/acer-software/acer-aspire-8730-notebook-windows-7-drivers/

Acer Netbook OS


if you are getting this message about corrupted partitions, you need to check and possibly replace the hard drive. There is a program to check the hard drive called Hard Disk Sentinel. It is designed for SSD hard drives like the Acer Aspire One has. Yours has a 160GB hard drive in it now.
