Question about AcerPower 1000 (AP1000EA380M) PC Desktop
I'm thinking this is a hopeless cause, but you never know. My Acer has been acting up for about a month. While I was working on it, it would make the noise as it I had shut it down, even though I was working! If I tapped the PC, I'd hear something start back up again, or something like that. Then, a few days later, it started to not startup properly. It would seem like it was booting, but there was no beep, and a screen would come on after the "Verifying VMI Pool data..." and then it would try to boot from the CD, and then nothing. Usually if I tapped the PC again, and restarted, it would be fine. However, now it won't even start!! Is this a fixable problem, and will there be a way to get some of my files off the computer? I've backed up most of my stuff, but there is still some stuff on there. Thanks!
I'm pretty sure your right about it being near hopeless because it sounds like your hard drive is physically failing but you could try and recover some of the stuff you need onto a flash drive if you can get it to start up even for just a few minutes. Otherwise you can just take it to someplace like the geek squad where it'll cost you but if it's possible they'll be able to get your stuff off.
Sorry and best of luck
