Re: BLACK SCREEN NO BOOT ON HARD DRIVE OR O.S.
US has 110volt power outlet while other countries like Philippines have different power outlet outlet voltage of 220v. You cant use the same power adaptor that you use in the US but if you use a power regulator like a UPS device it wont have a problem

Sounds like you are experiencing the "blue screen of death." This is typical when a hard-drive is failing. If you have boot-discs, you can try restoring your system from those. A warning, though: Any personal files you have on your drive WILL be lost, unless you have backed them up recently. If you have info you absolutely cannot lose, you need to take your computer to a repairman who has forensic recovery software before you do anything. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this situation requires professional help.
times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the
wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct
Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard
40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience
this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.
your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this
error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the
BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.
If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.
Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:
1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer
Yes it is nothing to do with hardware problem of yours, here is a tip to install your windows xp on your ACER Extensa, but before that I tell you that your hard drive inside is Sata so this is the solution, go to your BIOS Setup and change the setting of your hard disk from SATA mode to IDE Mode, find it their., and have your installation with your new windows xp, trust me, good luck!
Although it could be the hard drive, it could be any number of things as well. First, when the computer starts up, press the F8 key to bring up some options. Select disable automatic restart. This should allow the computer to stop at a blue screen so we can get some information from it. Do this and report back what that information says and we'll go from there. Thanks.
