    Same problem as above. Have an Acer Aspire 5920 Laptop.



    Acer doesnt sell laptops with installation discs anymore so I have logged a call with Acer to fix it up before my gf gets real upset.



    I'll post if i solve the problem other than Acer replacing the whole thing.

Well ur msg clearly states operating system not found.
for this u hav to install ur OS again.
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.

When booting up,operating system not found. Using Acer Aspire 5536. Vista. Help!!!


That means the start up files on your computer are already corrupted. You may need to reinstall the operating system. You need an operating system disc for this to work.
Warning: Reinstalling the operating will wipe out everything on the hard drive, so if you need some help in backing up your files, either buy an external enclosure and back up the data on your other computer, or contact a local technician.

Here's the visual step by step guide:

I have a acer aspire 3680 and it want boot up operating system not found. Can you please help me.


1. Go to BIOS setup at the time of booting by pressing F1 or F2 or Del Key. Select the first boot device as HDD. Also check whether HDD has been detected. Save and restart the system. (If not detected then check it with technician.)
2. If still not booting, if you don't have any data required on the HDD then try using recovery CD and boot through it to restore your OS to the manufacturers default.
3. If you dont have much idea about these process better handle take help of service engineer.

Need Vista Home Basic


Usually the operating system is on a separate partition especially for reinstallation when things go pearshape.

Some models used the SHIFT 0 when booting up to get to the windows installation. If you have deleted ALL partitions and reformatted then you have a real problem. Call DELL if you have not deleted partitions and find the specific s]sequence of accessing the partition for your model.

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?

Booting problems with acer laptop - no operating system found??


Hi,

PXE (pronounce Pixie) is an agent used to boot on to the network.

It's using the DHCP protocol to localise a server where the image of the OS is located

If, for any reason, the hard drive is not seen the computer will attempt to boot on the network controller.
This can be caused if the hard drive is missing, unplugged or corrupt, or simply by not having the boot order configured correctly.

When you start your laptops, press F2 repeatedly until you enter the bios set up, navigate to the boot order and make sure that the hard drive (sometimes listed as HDD....) at the top of the list.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need anymore help.
