Umm... can't boot to windows at all so the program that was provided wont work, can't reinstall windows automatic disk eject on startup!


Hi,

Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.

Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

Hello I wonder if you can help. When we switch


Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.

Look for windows recovery CD for AcerAspire 5610


It is good when you can start Safe mode it can help.

What realy happen when you start in 'Normal' mode ?

Do the following:

Start the computer in Safe mode.

Open My computer, than Right-click on Disk C and click on properties.

Click on Tools Tab and then click on 'Check Now', and then Start (leave two options above unchecked)

When it finishes, it should show that Disc check is complete, close it.

Right-click on My Computer, click on properties, and then Advanced Tab.
Click Settings in Startap and Recovery field.
Uncheck Automatically restart and then OK.

Now restart and see if it will bring Windows in 'Normal' mode.

Are there Errors, Blue Screen . . . . ?
If so, try one more thing.

Go to Windows start options (the one you go to select Safe mode) and go to

Last good known configuration
and pres Enter and once again, Enter.

Did you get to 'Normal' Windows ?

Computer will not start past safe mode screen


In safe mode, hit start button -run, and type "msconfig" in the box , hit enter.
the system configuration utility opens.
select startup tab at the top
when the startup screen opens, UNcheck all the boxes, press APPLY, then OK
the computer will prompt you to restart, when it restarts it will give you a message saying you have use the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal. Check the box that say dont show this again and click OK.
doing this will keep the programs set to start when windows starts from starting untill you start them manually. If one of them is causing the freeze, this will make the system accessible.
Keep in mind, you may want to turn some of them back on after you get the computer going and when you do , turn them on one at a time and restart the computer after each change. this way you can identify which program is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. please repost if you have more questions
