Your boot.ini file is deleted. You probably did this accidentally or you were hit by a virus that does this.

You can boot using any wndows xp cd and when prompted in the status bar at the bottom press the appropriate F key to enter a repair console. Once you see the command window, type HELP
You want to locate the command that is something like fixmbr or fixboot scroll down until you are at the end of the help commands display and then type that command. It will find your windows installation and ask you to confirm it. It will then write a new boot.ini file and you can then turn off the PC, eject the CD and boot normally. After this, run a full virus scan or go to kapersky.com and run their online scanner.

Advise me of any clarification you need or questions you have before rating this and when successful, then rate this as Fixed.

Thanks,

Having problems restoring my acer 5100 notebook.need help please!


Hi there.
Log into Windows and press Acer Empowering Key to launch, you can use that utility to restore the system.
If you have a pqservice partition but alt f10 does not work there is a file called mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin which is needed to install the acer missing magic code all you have to do is type the following on a dos prompt. mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin it adds the file to a slot
Once you have done that reboot the computer and wait it takes a while to restart, it then it seems to find new hardware (dont know what it finds) then do a reboot and then you can alt f10 to your hearts content.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hot to connect acer aspire mini laptop to digital lcd tv?


Press the Blue function key and toggle the screens. You can view, the Laptop, the Laptop and Screen, or just the screen.

Also you will need to flick through the channel button on the TV to get to the PC interface. Since you indicated you were using a VGA cable, this is likely the missing element.

Note: The VGA cable does not carry audio, you either had a separate audio interface to the TV or you were using RBG/Composite/S-Video/HDMI. So check to make sure you are using the correct cables.
