I have an Acer Aspire x1700 and it will not reboot, I cannot locate the reboot disk. How can you help?


Yuo need a lot of try and error to be successful.
First your OS and the BOOT disk that comes with your machine.But if you dont had the CD you need to buy and download it.
Store like Bestbuy,CompUSA,etc.. sell this CD,s or go to this LINK where you can buy it online and download it, choose your OS and any other specs about your System.
After all you need to BURN the files in a blank CD or order for mail shipment.

Then we going to BOOT the system id the CD drive.

To rebuild your hard drive, do the following:
  1. Power up your Acer system.
  2. When prompted (after memory testing completes), press CTRL + ALT + ESC to enter CMOS setup.
  3. At the CMOS Setup screen select Advanced BIOS Features
  4. Verify the Boot Options Sequence is set to the following order:
    1st [CD-ROM]
    2nd [Floppy Disk]
    3rd [Hard Disk]
  5. Insert the Acer System CD, DISK 1 in your CD-ROM drive.
  6. Press F10 to exit and save. When prompted, Do you want to save CMOS data?, select [Yes], then press ENTER.
  7. The system will reboot from the CD-ROM. After booting from the CD-ROM, you will see the Acer Hard Drive Rebuild options displayed.

    Note: Use your mouse for choice selections during the HDD recovery process. The mouse will respond slowly during this procedure, DO NOT press the Enter key. Pressing the Enter key will cause the HDD recovery process to terminate.
  8. Select HDD Full Rebuild and follow the on-screen instructions.
  9. When prompted to insert Acer Recovery CD, DISK 2, wait for the CD-ROM to eject DISK 1.
  10. Close the CD-ROM tray and click OK. The system will continue to rebuild the hard drive back to factory load.
After being prompted to remove disk and restart system the unit will load system software and hardware. During this process the system will reboot several times.
Your Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity (COA) ID number will automatically be entered for you. Should you need this number for any reason, look for your Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity (COA) ID number on the cover of your system.

Hi. Try to boot up the computer from your CD ROM then install windows. Make sure that the rescue disk is in the CD drive. Here's the procedure. Keep on tapping F12 key the moment you press the power button. You should be getting a boot menu after doing this. Select ODD/DVD rom drive inorder for the computer to boot up from your CD rom then follow the on screen instructions in installing windows.

Have a good one!

Bootmgr is missing


Insert the original CD-ROM that you used to install Windows XP.
Restart the computer, and tell it to "boot" from the CD-ROM,
instead of the usual disk-drive.
Eventually, you'll get to a screen that asks "install" or "repair".
Choose "repair", to see if Windows will repair the 'BOOT-MANAGER' file.

As ur sister has a branded machine u must hav got a Operating System CD-ROM with it for backup.(in ur case it must be vista)

if u hav the cdrom then turn ur system on just put the cdrom into the drive and let it do what follows.
It may ask u abt where to install ur OS(means which partition)
just select the desired partition and many other simple questions which u can easily answer incase u hav any problem I am always there.

Windows XP Unsuccessful on Start Up


no you just need to fix your bios problem, if you dont have the manual take the battery out of the motherboard that keeps power to the bios keep it out for a few minutes put it back in then turn it on it should go to bios automatically then just go to set best defaults for ststem hit y for yes then hit enter and it should take off fine if it dont then you need to take it to a pro who can reset it for you manually or reprogram it that would be cheapest for you without trashing it.
