hi there. As long as you have an xp/vista disc the process is simple. Here's what to do:
1-Insert the xp/vista disc into the laptop.
2-restart the laptop and boot from cd
3-click to reformat drive and fresh install xp/vista
4-when needed, insert cd key which is located on the bottom of your laptop.
5-Make sure to install updates eg, service packs etc and security software.

Good luck!

Presario 2200 starts up, gives me safe mode screen


Yeah, windows did not install correctly the first time around & you need to reinstall with a format. Isn't there anyone you know who has a real CD, (Do not take a chance with a copy) you can borrow? Call you're brother or email him & ask if you can get his CD again. You can always but a windows CD. The price has dropped alot since Vista hit the market. Click on this link.

(Do not buy Vista), unless you like problems.

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.

MY VISTA WINDOWS WONT LOAD


Okay, I think I can help you but I need some more information. I'm assuming your Acer laptop currently has a version of Windows XP installed, yes? And Acer gave you a CD to upgrade your OS to a version of Windows Vista?

And when you mean that you go to your BIOS to access the CD, I'm assuming that you are talking about the boot options menu (selecting the cd drive vs the hard drive or floppy drive or what not) correct?

When you select the CD drive to boot from, what exactly happens? Do you get any error message? Does the computer turn off? Does it appear to try to load from the CD and then switch to your hard drive instead (and load your existing operating system)?

When you get the logon screen tap control alt and delete together until you get a different sign in screen.  Remove her name and type in administrator without a password.  This should let you in.  Go to control panel, users and remove her password.
