Hi there,

Your symptoms almost always indicate that your hard drive has failed. If you can
t boot to a restore disk, there's not much else it could be.

Regards,

Marcus

Mi notebook acer aspire 3000LCi the only do is a an upper and i dont have a recovery disk


When you restore your system back to the new factory settings, it will wipe your hard drive clean and do a fresh install of the operating system with the original factory setting.


To start this process, unplug all extra devices from your computer

(printers, external hard drives, etc.) as these can interfere with the system restore.


Starting with Windows XP, most systems with issued a system recovery disk in case of any problems with the factory installation.


Check the documentation and disks that came with your computer to determine if you have one of these system disks.


If you do have a copy of this disk, place it in your CD/DVD drive and restart your computer.

If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions.


Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words.

Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings.


Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation.

Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again.


Restart your computer to complete the restore.


3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk.


Unplug all external devices and restart your computer.

When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times.


This will bring up the system restore menu.

Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings


hope this helps

for that you need recovery disk or windows xp bootable disk.
For that put that disk in rom.Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot option set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boot with disk then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
then press "y"
then it recovers error on harddisk.
Then check.
If still face same issue then you have to choose repair option so it fix windows.
This blue error comes when there is issue in bed indexing in harddisk.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

If you know how ?reset the memory and restart the computer
at the boot press F8 if the menu appears try last known good confiuration that worked if this does not work you need to format and reinstall the os the blue screen is and indication of driver failuer or hardware conflick and if the system.last good config will only work 1 time after that it will wipe out the os and you will have to restore from the restore disk,and the best way to do that is to reformat the drive and do a clean install ,but if you have windows there is a restore mode your disk will say press F2 to restore now

DVD drive keeps on opening when starting


If the boot priority in the BIOS setup screen is set to thr CD it  will open the cd door every time you boot looking for the BOOT cd.    It will not accept anything else, at that point except a boot cd since it hasn't found the operating system (windows) yet.    By "blue laptop" you mean "blue screen" DO a "Windows restore" or reinstall windows from the reinstall cd or Harddrive partision containing the restore files.

Zd8000 wont boot up


try to get into SAFE mode... tap F8 repeatedly when you first power on. You should get a safe mode boot menu, select last known good profile and press enter.

If this does not work reboot go into SAFE mode and select Safe Mode from menu and see if it will boot up.

You may get a pop up to use system restore, say yes, select restore to an earlier date (or similar) then use the calander to select a restore date that is PRIOR to the problem starting.

If this does not work boot to safe mode again and say NO (cancel) to use system restore and see if you can get to the desktop

post back results for further troubleshooting
