Sounds like you have a CD or DVD in your CD or DVD drive, or if you have a floppy drive, a floppy in it.

If these are empty, Put in your recovery CD and see if it reads that.

How I can reset bios psw my noitebook travelmate 212t acer? please help me!


Is there a reason to reset the password, I think Acer have put it there to stop people from messing, because they would have fine tuned it. You will have to get in touch with Acer.
Sometimes under the ram slots there is a round flat battery, if there is, take it out and leave for a minute, then reinsert it.

Sorry I can't help any more.

Ive installed 160gb seagate 2.5 ide hard drive in my acer 2303lc when i put in recovery cd it says invalid system disk,replace the disk and press any key but when i press the key nothing happens ,its a new...


Hey,

Do you have more of those recovery discs? are you sure you have the right one inserted?

I remember on my acer I first had to enter a system disc, then when asked the two recovery discs.

If your unable to get it working with those cds I would suggest you get your hands on a original windows xp or vista installation cd and install windows from it.

also have you tried to enter the boot menu on start up? when you power up it says on some corner of the screen what button to press to get it to open the boot menu and then select the cd/dvd rom drive.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Acer travelmate 212t problem


It sounds like video card problem. Bring it to a repair shop.

No picture and no sound


no picture and no sound means that either the operating system is not installed, the motherboard or hard disc drive is faulty, hard to say where to start as you don't know the last thing that happened to it to start the diagnosis. If you don't own a hdd usb2 to 3.5" ide cable to firstly check the hard drive, you will need to take to a repairer and illiminate as you go along.
