Re: problem in acer aspire 5630
- is the BIOS set to boot from the hard drive ? - have u changed any drive setting in BIOS (sata mode, pata mode ...) - try to boot with a linux live cd, or with the vista dvd and see if they can see the drive ... if thay can, than most probably a reinstall of the OS would fix the problem, if not , check the BIOS settings, also make sure that the drive is properly fixed in it;s place, if posible test it on another laptop to be sure if it;s causing the probems or not ...

The message is the laptops way of saying that it has looked for an operating system and could not find one. The PXE rom message refers to it trying to find a network boot record.
Test this by checking your Bios settings, in the boot order, see that the CDRom is set to 1st boot, then the second bot is the HDD, If the thing will not boot. Check you can see that the laptop "sees" the boot devices, if it does not, you have a problem, as it looks like the controllers are damaged.
If it Does find the boot devices, but it still defaults to a network boot, there is either NO OS on the hard drive, or it has been corrupted.
Use the Vista DVD to re-install Windows (you may be lucky enough to get away with a repair installation), after you have reinstalled windows, the drivers etc can be found on Acer's site quite easily
Purchase Win7 System Disc. Power up laptop and go into BIOS setting the DVD/CD Rom as first boot device. Place OS disk in drive and boot from disk Navigate the menu and questions and there you have it. Windows 7 on your laptop. Now, download all of the drivers as required from Acer.com. Download Windows updates and resore any backup data files. Hope that helps.
How are you reinstalling the operating system? Are you using the factory default CD's or the hidden partition? If you're not, then the relevant drivers may not be included (particularly the graphic driver).
have you got the Synaptics TouchPad software installed?
have you enabled (or disabled) your touchpad by pushing Fn + F7?
