Question about Acer PC Laptops
The problem i'm having is i don't understand how to boot my cd from the bios and i am in a mess right now. I hate to do the wrong thing then i will have my hands full! If you could help me i would really appreciate it. I start back to school the 15th and i up in the air.
If you know how to go to your motherboard's BIOS, look for BOOT, then BOOT sequence or BOOT priority, disable the others then set your CD ROM to be on top (much like making it the 1st in priority) then save the settings after that shut the computer down then put the CD in, your CD will not BOOT first.
if you have more questions just lemme know, good luck on this one.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
Also check your memory. It could be your memory chips or one of the memory slots.
Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.
