    My daughters laptop has or sounds like the same issue. It starts to boot up, we see the Microsoft logo and the progress bar working and then it will flash and a message that indicates--> "cannot read boot drivers". Prior to this, we went on a trip and brought it with us, perhaps being in a vehicle and not in a normal usage could have loosen something internally? What is a IDE cable and where is it located within the laptop?

    Any help will be appreciated,

    Dave

Hi, check the IDE cable connection, jumper setting and power connection for any loose. Take out each and reconnect.

- 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 ...

I have an Acer Aspire 5630 when i turn it on i get a black screen showing. PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. Operating System not found I have got a...


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

My acer aspire 5630 touchpad dosent work. tried reinstalling operating system and installing drvers for it. But it shows up as instalized on boot screen.


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).
Some checks:
  • have you got the Synaptics TouchPad software installed?
  • have you enabled (or disabled) your touchpad by pushing Fn + F7?
