I had this problem with my Acer Aspire 5920. What I had to do was use GPLCD which is a linux utilty to format the disk as NTFS. It is available here. http://gparted-livecd.tuxfamily.org/

For me it was easy as I have another computer here. I downloaded the iso file and created a CD which is bootable.

I put it in the drive for the laptop when the computer was on, turned it off and then powered on. The cd loaded GPLCD and I selected the format disk option. NTFS was what I used.

I then put in my ACER recovery CD for the Acer Aspire 5920. All worked ok from this point onwards.

Hope this helps.

cheers

Reformatting was the answer for me also. You must use external system disk to boot from. Western Digital has LifeGuard software downloadable for free. It works great for most hard drives.

Need to reboot my toshiba satellite L750D laptop with Windows 7


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

solution: back up your data make a clean format. but right after installing o.s. immediately install anti virus.

My computer just shut off and now won't reboot


You may be able to boot in safe mode and discover the problem that way. You may want to check the battery, and the power cable, but I assume you already did that, so if the safe mode reboot wont work, it is possible that the hard disk crashed, or you have another hardware problem. Try booting from a windows install CD, or a Linux CD, to see if it can boot at all. Then you may be able to see the hard disk and determine if it is crashed or corrupted. Also, sometimes removing the battery and pulling the power cord out for a few moments can allow it to restart.

Laptop powers down 5 seconds after turning on


Straight forward method would be to download Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset from microsoft.com, write it to a bootable CD. Make your Laptop bootable from CD drive (ie. is change the sequence of booting. At present it will be booting from Hard disk.) Boot from the CD you just created. Check what is the problem. And possible repair can be done. Check this link.

But.. may be a little difficult.
And while I am at this, be careful when you take out a hard disk from one laptop and insert it in another laptop. Even though it is from the same manufacturer, it may not be compatible.
Another easier option would be to get hold of a desktop computer that is working. Get a cable which can be used to connect your laptop Hard disk to the desktop. A desk top allows multiple drives. This way you can get the laptop HDD as a seperate drive in your My computer, (like you see a pendrive or a CD drive. You can try reading this drive and copy content to the desktop. And burn it to a CD. May be a little more easier. If you have difficulty in reading the Laptop HDD, you can download one or the other programs that helps in reading corrupted drives. Good luck.

Laptop crash after inserting blank disk


do not worry at all. take out the cd and reboot in safe mode by pressing F8 at bootup. Then you can restore your laptop to an earlier date from Start->All progs->Accessories->System->restore. reboot normal this time.

Wireless Router Causes XP PRO to Crash. I just purchase a Linksys WRT110 wireless router and installed it using the EasyLink setup cd. The install went OK but Windows XP PRO immediately crashed and...


my apologies it was a typo...
the command is eventvwr.msc

what you need to do now is install a program called radarsync (google it) AND BE VERY CAREFUL TO UNCHECK THE OPTIONS OF ALL THE TOOLBARS IT WILL ASK YOU TO INSTALL THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

ITS A FREEWARE THATS WHY ALL THE TOOLBARS but trust me you dont want them.
let the tool scan for updates for your computer install the update you find for the wireless card and reboot
you shouldnt be getting the problem anymore
please rate if his fixes your issue
thanks
