Contact Acer and they can send you the disk that came with that computer. Then you can run some commands. Let me know when you get the disk.

Have you tried safe mode by hitting the f8 key at start up?

When i try to turn on my acer aspire 3680-2682 it reads pre boot execution pxe v2.1 pxe e61 media test failure then pxe mof exiting pxe rom operating system not found


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Hi i have an acer aspire 3690 and cannot boot the pc as it says unmountable boot volume. i dont have the recovery cd or bios password as bought from someone i used to know in the uk and im no longer living...


Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


If you receive the “unmountable boot volume” error and have an installation disk, you still have a chance to save your system.
1. Insert your XP installation disk into an optical drive and boot up your computer.
2. When you see a welcome screen, hit the R key on your keyboard. This will enter you into recovery mode with a DOS prompt.
3. Now type chkdsk /p and hit Enter. This will launch a utility which will check for errors on your hard drive.
4. After the process is done, type fixboot and hit Enter to repair any damaged boot files which may have become corrupted. When asked to say yes or no, type the Y key on your keyboard.
5. Type exit and press the Enter key to reboot your computer.

If all went well, you should now be able to boot back into Windows without a problem!

Good luck!

UNMOUNTABLE DISK VOLUME Message on ACER Aspire One.


Unmountable boot volume is most likely an indication of a failing hard drive. Boot to your Windows CD and run CHKDSK /R and see if issue resolves. If it doesn't then you are probably replacing the hard drive.
