Blank screen after boot splash screen


Hi.

After you see the press Del and F12 message repeatedly tap the F8 key, see if that gets to the advanced boot menu, if it does select "Repair my Computer" from the list, and then follow the prompts. Have your Win 7 disk ready just in case you need it.

Let me know how you get on and good luck!!

My acer laptop turns on, then tells me to contact the systems administrator. If I try to continue it shuts down. at one time I recall reading that the files have been currupied. is there anything I can...


It sounds like the Windows boot files have become corrupted. That could happen for several reasons, but if you're willing to just reformat/reload the operating system, we're only concerned with one of those reasons.

There are some viruses that can corrupt boot files. If that's what happened, then reformatting/reloading the OS will take care of it.

On the other hand, it could be that your hard drive may be failing. When you reformat/reload, the Windows system will tell you if it finds errors on the drive.

The following is from the Acer manual for your machine as to how to access the BIOS and enable a hard disk recovery:

To activate the BIOS utility, press during the POST; while the notebook PC
logo is being displayed.

Boot sequence

To set the boot sequence in the BIOS utility, activate the BIOS utility, then select
Boot from the categories listed at the top of the screen. [You should set the CD/DVD drive to be the first boot device, in case you need to reload from a DVD]

Enable disk-to-disk recovery

To enable disk-to-disk recovery (hard disk recovery), activate the BIOS utility,
then select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen. Find D2D
Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the and keys to set this
value to Enabled.

[End of manual quote]

If you're not able to restore from the hidden partition on the hard drive, which may happen if the drive is damaged, then you'll have to try to restore using a Windows DVD.

Hope that's helpful.

If you get the boot image on your screen then you screen is working correctly unless there's something that you not explaining. You can try an ext. monitor if you think it is something related to your LCD screen not woring during boot up. If the ext monitor not showing your laptop to boot then you have problem with your OS and may need to get it repaired or restored.

Sometimes I have seen something like this where there actually is a harddrive error, and it just acts like it books. It would be good to run a scan of the Hard drive. With something like GWScan. The Ultimate Boot CD would be able to run this for you.
