I cannot start up my acer aspire 584g32bn


Safe Mode and System Restore can fix startup issues in an Acer Aspire One, but if the computer won't even load the boot screen, the problem could be related to the basic input/output system (BIOS).
The Acer Aspire One 110 and 150 are two models that can have BIOS-related problems that prevent the computer from booting.
You can upgrade the BIOS through a USB flash drive to repair this issue.
If you are able boot past the startup screen, but can't sign in to Windows, you can use Windows Advanced Boot Options to bypass startup problems.

Go to the Acer website (see Below).
http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
Click "Support," then select "Download" from the menu on the left.
Select "Netbook" as the product family.
Click "Aspire One" as the product line. Select "AOA110" or "AOA150" as the product model.


Click the "BIOS" tab.
Click the download button and save the file to the desktop.


Go to the desktop when the download completes.
Double-click the file to open it.


Drag-and-drop the folder to the desktop.
Double-click the folder to open its contents in Windows Explorer.


Double-click the "BIOS_Acer_3310_A_AOA110 & AOA150" folder.
Double-click the "Dos_Flash" folder.


Insert a blank USB flash drive into a USB slot.
Drag-and-drop the "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" files to the flash drive.


Right-click the "3310.fd" file. Click "Rename."
Change the file name to "zg5ia32.fd" and press "Enter."


Connect the AC adapter to the power jack.
Hold down "Fn" and "Esc" with one hand, then press the power button with the other.


Release the "Fn" and "Esc" keys when the power indicator light comes on.
Wait at least seven minutes for the system to fix the BIOS and repair the Acer Aspire One startup issues.
The computer will restart automatically when the process is complete.

Other Models

Turn on the computer.
Press "F8" before the Windows logo appears to access the Windows Advanced Boot Options menu.


Scroll to Last-Known Good Configuration.
Press "Enter" to load Windows.
If the OS fails to start up, hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the computer.


Press the power button to turn the Acer Aspire One back on. Press "F8," then select "Safe Mode" from the options.


Log in to Safe Mode. Click "Start," "All Programs," "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Click "Next."


Select the last working restore point from the options. Click "Next."
Click "Finish" to run System Restore and recover the Acer Aspire One to a previous state.

CD DVD not detected at start up


Check to see if it is showing up in the hardware section of device manager. Click on Start - Control Panel - System - and in the left hand pane you should see Device Manager. If the CD/DVD player is showing up there then the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows may not. This could be due to incorrect or lost drivers. I would suggest going to Acer's website and downloading the most current drivers and also if there is a bios upgrade do that as well. That should correct the issue.

Reinstalling


Hard drive has bad sectors on it which is why its giving you that message even though you can go thru the restore. Normally going thru the system cd and then the recovery cd should bring you into windows with the device drivers installed.

Unable to load windows


Here's a guess:
Missing NTKNRL>EXE or
Missing BOOT>INI
if it IS OS related. If it is hardware related then perhaps re-post.

(...a disclaimer though) My OS is W2K My only other OS is Seven. A quick google showed nothing but complaints about your machine. Same result when google my Acer so...
You have the manual from site?

Can't boot my Acer Aspire One


"Booting" is the process of starting up the computer's operating system (Windows). Settings in the mainboard memory (the BIOS) give the order in which devices are searched for the operating system. The usual order is hard drive first, then the CD drive, and finally over a network.

That clear-as-mud message means the mainboard tried to boot over a network connection and it didn't work. It's telling you to check your network cable or to put in a CD it can boot from.

There are two reasons this is happening. Either the system's BIOS settings have "network" as the first boot device, or (more likely) the operating system wasn't found on the hard drive and the BIOS went looking for a network connection. If the computer used to boot normally and you didn't change the BIOS settings, then something has happened to the hard drive to make it unbootable.

You can check the BIOS settings by pressing the "DELETE" key when you turn the computer on and the Acer logo screen appears. This starts the BIOS setup mode. If the boot order is correct with network boot as the last choice, there is a hardware cause. You might have picked up a virus or worm which has corrupted the disk. The hard drive or the mainboard may have gone bad.

If you have a recovery CD or DVD set, you can try restoring your system. You say it's brand-new, so you might try taking the computer back to the retailer to see if their technical support people can help. Or you can contact Acer to set up service for the computer.

Hope this helps you understand what's happening and that you get the trouble straightened out quickly!

CANNOT FIND CD/DVD DRIVE ON ACER ASPIRE 5100


Is the hardware listed in the BIOS? When the computer first starts up hit a key to get in the BIOS (Esc, F2 or F10 are most likely). If it's not listed in the BIOS then it's likely a hardware problem. Try checking the connections to make sure it's plugged in and getting power.

If it is listed in the BIOS, it's likely a problem within Windows. Check Acer's website for known issues with the cd-rom.

MY VISTA WINDOWS WONT LOAD


Okay, I think I can help you but I need some more information. I'm assuming your Acer laptop currently has a version of Windows XP installed, yes? And Acer gave you a CD to upgrade your OS to a version of Windows Vista?

And when you mean that you go to your BIOS to access the CD, I'm assuming that you are talking about the boot options menu (selecting the cd drive vs the hard drive or floppy drive or what not) correct?

When you select the CD drive to boot from, what exactly happens? Do you get any error message? Does the computer turn off? Does it appear to try to load from the CD and then switch to your hard drive instead (and load your existing operating system)?
