This is one or two things.

HARD DRIVE PROBLEM

This sounds like a bad hard drive. What make of hard drive is in it?
Figure out what brand hard drive it is first. Then go to the website of the manufacturer.
While you are on the site look for software for hard drive repair. It could be listed in many ways. Download the windows version if you have another computer to test this in. If you do not have another computer to test this in you will have to use the Dos version. The instructions will come with the software.
Then you will go through these steps.
Do you have another computer that you can use to check the hard drive? If you have another computer or access to another computer you can download a hard drive utility that can diagnose and possible repair the hard drive. Is it a SATA hard drive? If it is a SATA hard drive you can plug it directly into another computer that has a SATA cable. If it is not SATA you will need to buy a converter so that you can hook it up to the other computer. This will be an external slim hard drive enclosure. A desktop hard drive can be put in another desktop and used as a slave drive. Just make sure that you look at the back of the Hard Drive and make put the jumper on the slave pins. Then you can run the test through the other computer to test the Hard Drive. The test will let you know if the Hard Drive is bad or not. If you can see your files on the drive you might want to back them up before you start the test. If it comes back as good go to the next step.

FIX BOOT
You can boot it up with the recovery CD and run through it as if you were doing a setup and then when the second repair comes up..... hit repair. This should repair any problem with the operating system. If you want to try the simple way... use the first repair that comes up. When the screen comes up with a blinking curser hit the number 1 then Enter........ When it ask you for a password hit enter. There should not be a password unless someone has put one in it. If there is a password it should be your master password.
Then type fixmbr and hit enter. This will fix your master boot record. If that does not work use the second repair. Sounds complicated but it is not.

Are you getting the Acer logo on start up? If so you might have a software issue on the hard drive, or the hard drive itself is defective. I suggest using your recovery disc to re-install windows and drivers providing you have them.

My Acer Aspire 5100 laptop won't boot. At startup the Acer logo is shown and than drops to a black window with flickering cursor (with now and than a loud bleep). Can anybody tell me what the problem is...


be sure to remove all other external devices hooked to your pc. just leave ac adapter plugged in. then try if it will boot to safemode by pressing F8 upon seeing the Acer Logo. if it will boot, what you need is reinstall your OS. if it will still not boot then you need to replace hdd.

Blank screen appears on the startup with only cursor on it


The Acer Recovery CDs do not set the Boot flag on the hard drive. I had to manually set the boot flag to on using GPARTED Live. After restarting using the GPARTED CD, you can manage the flags under the partition drop down and click on the Boot flag. After exiting GPARTED, I rebooted the laptop and no more black screen....fixed!!
I hope this helps others.

Acer 4720Z lost vista os


Most likely the hard drive went out, do you hear a clicking noise or loud ticking coming from the laptop?

Does it give you any kind of message like " NTLDR missing."?

Let me know.

Acer Aspire 5100-blinking cursor at top/bottom screen after POST


ok, sounds like its got a few major dramas going on but hopefully we can get things going. if its completely failing to post it can only be a bios, ram or CPU failure. if it is posting but not loading windows there can be a few probles. usually if your switching and installed OS from one to another the HAL (hardware application layer) needs to be re-installed to cope with changes in APTI and single/multicore processors. this can be sorted by using the repair console from the windows installation. the serial number comes up with the registration page automatically put onto the OS when installed from the ACER backup partition. this can be accessed via alt+f10 on posting, as if you were going f8 for safemode.
