Sounds like your windows installation has become corrupted. Do a repair install. Let me know if you need instructions, you'll need a windows installation cd.

How to giving boot with different ways to acer travelmate 2423 laptop


1) You can set your boot options in your bios, watch as you laptop boots, you should see something like "Hit F2 to enter setup". Hit F2, select boot options then choose to boot from CD, HDD or external drive. Take care because you don't want to mess up your Bios. So read the screen carefully before changing anything. When you're happy, select save and exit then reboot, you should then boot from the device of choice in the order of choice.

2) Windows boot options, windows has several options for booting from, including safe mode. To do this, hit F8 several times while the laptop is booting, you should come to a screen with the several options on offer.

Hi, I do apologize for the inconvenience you have been facing.The reason why the laptop does not reboot to Windows even after reinstalling Windows is because the issue is with the hard drive not being recognized the reason for which you get a blinking line on the screen after the Acer logo .In this case I would suggest that if the laptop is under warranty please contact the Acer Technical support and have an order placed for repair.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

Acer laptop with vista now windows wont work


1. Boot to safe mode by tapping F8 as soon as you power your computer on.

2. Launch system restore under Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.

3. Just follow the steps and select a restore point (any day before this problem started).

4. System restore should also be able to uninstall the Automatic Updates that could have caused the issue.

Another option is you can Contact Microsoft Support and tell them that you're having issues with automatic updates, you shouldn't be charge for the support if it's still under warranty.

Huhu.i can't comment in my friends :(


This is probably because the server's system may have detected you doing spam by commenting..

reason for this
1) you must have been commenting many many times.
2) your content in the comments was abuse.
3) you tried to access the protected files stored in server

Only this three can be the reason behind this


and the last thing you can do is to wait until the site administrator unblocks you.
or you can contact the site administrator.


thanks for asking
