My acer computer says that repair recommended and look like it's gonna boot but it display the same message

This is usually a sign that your computer was incorrectly shutdown or it lost power. You may be able to choose "Start windows normally" and hopefully everything should be ok!

Otherwise , your windows installation is corrupted. You may be able to run the "Startup Repair" option by choosing the "Repair My Computer" option which you are presented with.

If that doesn't work you will have to reinstall Windows and start from scratch. You will lose all the data on the computer doing this unless you take it to a computer shop where they will be able to recover your data before reinstalling Windows.

I just bought Acer Aspire Netbook, I have forgotten my password and cannot get into anything. What can I do??

If it is the logon-password for Windows, re-install the Operating System, and set a new password.

If it is the power-on password, find the original sales-receipt, and telephone ACER, to prove that you, and not a thief, is in possession of your computer, and ACER will assist you.

Why can't i loan to my windows desktop while the computer boot properly no icon display, everything was blank and it display a dialog box of svchost properties asking to restore

Your system has been corrupted and you will need to either restore the system or install the operating system again. Please see your owners manual and I would attempt to re-install or just install Windows again.
Best of it.

Setting up a new hard disk and operating system on an Acer Power SC

There should be more than one disk, as the other will be drivers, all you need to do is press F2 or Del to get into your pc's bios settings and change the first boot device to your cd drive, insert your acer disc into the drive, then save the bios settings, restart the pc ,then, when prompted on screen to press enter to boot from cd; do so.

You should then follow instructions to set up windows on the 'C' drive as is default and it may need to reformat in NTFS.

My hard drive on my acer 2010 died so I was thinking about replacing it. Do I need to do anything special to it before I load the operating system disk, etc.. Will it boot up and give me directions?

You just install the replacement hdd, the operating disk will prompt you to format and partition (if required) (windows xp & vista) once all loaded you wil probably have to load some drivers.
