For some reason the "Shell" is not loading, try the following commands, see if they help.

WIN [enter] this should launch the normal explorer shell

Exit [enter] sometimes the system is set to boot to the dos interface, this will exit the dos shell and reload windows.

If neither command gets you to windows, then you may have a problem with your hard drive or windows install. Might be a good time for a newer system

I have Acer travelmate 4010 laptop >>>


Download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD from here and burn it on a disc: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
Upon start up you will get a menu similar to this one:

Under advanced boot options boot from the one that suits your operatin system (XP or Vista or Windows 7). If it loads it means the bootmgr is corrupt, you can try to repair it with the Windows installation disc, instead of Install choose Repair.

Now, regarding the BIOS password, you will have to select Dos Boot CD and go to BIOS/CMOS menu and run Kill CMOS to wipe the BIOS completely or there are some utilities there that can reset just password. There re some other options too for reseting the password that you can read about here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7229632-reset_or_remove_bios_password

Max HDD size supported by BIOS in TravelMate 508DX


Windows 98 has a max of 64GB and windows 98SE 137GB. (That one came with Win98, right?). A decent 20GB should do if you're using still windows 98. Your BIOS should have a list of drives to choose from but it should be alot more than the 4.8GB drive that comes with the laptop.

Installing windows on acer notebook help


you cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.

to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.

How do I re-format Acer 4200 TravelMate hard drive?


Windows Reinstallation Disk option:

Insert Windows Reinstallation disk into tray, Boot to CD/DVD-ROM by pressing F12 at initial boot screens, delete existing Windows partition, re-create partition, and then follow steps to reinstall Windows. This will lead you to an option for formatting hard drive. I recommend choosing the full format versus the quick, from this point you can let windows install, or just shut the computer down when the format finishes. You will have to watch the progress, though, if you don't want the install to commence.


Boot disk option:

For XP, 95, 98, or ME, follow the instructions at this MS article page. It will walk you through creating a boot disk that will allow you to format.

You will need a floppy disk or CD
