You will need either your windows Disk or if operating system was pre-installed you may only be able to get an recovery disk from Acer Which both ways when inserted disk boot up and press key to boot from cd, Then you can follow on screen instructions to format/reinstall windows on your laptop ... # Without recovery or windows disk you cannot reinstall, And if you have neither you need to contact acer for a recovery disk or buy a windows disk from Microsoft.

Acer aspire 5050 notebook mouse frozen turned on and off and wont work


Re-boot the laptop and check for a virus or errors on the hard drive. Use CHKDSK/F for the hard drive error check and a good anti virus programme, (Norton or Essentials).
Hope this cures your error.

My Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop wont detect the hard drive


If it works on another computer then either the ide cable in the acer is bad/loose at either end or the ide controller on the motherboard is bad. I would try a known good ide cable first as if this is the problem it is fixable alot cheaper than a motherboard. Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5100 wont boot, and I'mnow on this "EDIT BOOT OPTIONS" screen... It's seems that if I knew what to type in I could Undo whatever the issue is. Can someone please help me figure out what I do...


edit boot options is the order in which your computer will reboot... select hard drive... if it does not successfully boot up... reboot and tap the F8 key.... boot to last known good configuration... if that doesn't work... reboot... F8 the safe mode... if it will boot to safe mode reboot normally... should be fine

please to go to your bios setting and check under boot sequence whether your hard drive is the 1st device. try to reset the bios to its default settings and after resetting it try to check again on the boot sequence to make sure that your hard drive is the first option. if you have external devices connected to the computer remove all of it.
