I would check to make sure the hard drive is in secure and if it is I hate to say it sounds like your hard drive needs replaced.

    There is a couple more things I would look at before you purchase a new drive.Go into the BIOS settings make sure your first boot device is your hard drive then try to restart and then if that doesn't work change the first device to CD drive then hard drive as your second boot device then try the restore disk.If you are using XP reformat drive using NTFS setting.Let me know how it goes I may be able to help more.

if the problem is still persisting
Your computer's BIOS screen can be incredibly useful when you need to make certain hardware or system configurations.
How to access the BIOS on your laptop varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model.
Even though Acer laptops are created by the same manufacturer, not all models access BIOS in the same manner.
While accessing the BIOS setup screen in and of itself is not difficult all you need to do is press a key the difficulty is in figuring out which key to hit.
Restart or power on the laptop.
Hit the "Pause/Break" key the moment the Acer boot screen (not the OS start-up screen) appears.
If the OS start-up screen appears before you can hit Pause/Break, you will need to restart the laptop.
Press "F2" or "Del" to access the BIOS set-up screen.
Depending on the age of your Acer laptop, you may need to instead press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Esc" simultaneously to access BIOS.
Using the arrow keys navigate failsafe or optimized defaults press F10 to safe to cmos and exit to restart.

I want to reinstall my dell inspiron e6510 back to when i first got it..please lmk asap


Hi,

This should help.

Use Dell PC Restore by Symantec only as the last method to restore your operating system. PC Restore restores your hard drive to the operating state it was in when you purchased the computer. Any programs or files added since you received your computer-including data files-are permanently deleted from the hard drive. Data files include documents, spreadsheets, e-mail messages, digital photos, music files, and so on. If possible, back up all data before using PC Restore.
To use PC Restore:
  1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.

  1. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press .

If you do not press in time, let the computer finish starting, and then restart the computer again.
notice.gif NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.

  1. On the next screen that appears, click Restore.

  2. On the next screen, click Confirm.

The restore process takes approximately 6-10 minutes to complete.

  1. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

note.gif NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.
  1. When prompted, click Yes.

The computer restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer was turned on.

  1. Click Next.

The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.
After the computer restarts, click OK.

Thanks,

Oliver

It sounds like your install has become corrupted if safe mode and last known good do not work.

You may need to restore the netbook to factory settings, doing this will wipe off any data you have saved on the netbook.

Install the battery and connect the AC adapter to your Acer Aspire One.

Turn the system on by pressing the "Power" button.

Press and hold the "Alt" key immediately after pressing the "Power" button and tap the "F10" button.

Continue holding the "Alt" button and tapping the "F10" button until a screen saying "Acer eRecovery" appears.

You will see three options:
Restore system to factory default
Restore system from CD/DVD (grayed out if an optical drive is not connected
Exit

Click on "Restore system to factory default." A notice will appear informing you that all data on the "C:" drive will be overwritten and reminding you to plug in the AC cord.

Click "OK" to begin the recovery. A message will appear stating once again that all data on your hard drive will be overwritten.

Click "OK" to acknowledge the message. The screen will show you a progress bar as the recovery progresses. Wait until the recovery is complete. The time will vary depending upon the individual netbook. A message will appear when the recovery is finished

Click "OK" to restart the computer. The netbook will reboot. Windows will load, asking you to wait. A "Welcome to Microsoft Windows" screen will eventually appear with background music playing. It is time to help Windows set up your computer.

Click "Next" to continue. You will be asked to input your system settings. Enter your region, language, and keyboard type, then click "Next." The next window is for your time zone.

Select your time zone and, if desired, place a check in the box beside "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings time," then click "Next." The EULA (End User License Agreement) will appear next.

Click "Yes, I accept" on both places to accept all points of the EULA, then click "Next."

Place a dot in the radio button beside "Help protect my PC by turning on Automatic Updates now" and click "Next."

Click "Skip" to avoid setting up network information at this time.

Click "Skip" to avoid setting up an Internet connection at this time.

Click "No, not at this time" to avoid registering with Microsoft at this point, then click "Next".

Click "Skip" to avoid inputting registration information now.

Put your name and the names of others who will use the computer here, one per line. Click "Next." Microsoft will thank you for setting up your computer. Click "Finish" to begin using your newly restored computer.

Freezing


So, you post a message like a telegram. "freezing". since you never mentioned any other details, i have no option to assume that its a dell some laptop. the solution which i am writing is universal and applies to all the laptops.
Before we begin: lets check if your hard drive is fine or not. follow the instructions as they are.
1. Turn off your laptop.
2. Press and Hold the Fn fey located at the bottom left hand corner, before you turn on the machine.
3. Then turn on the machine and keep the Fn button down.
4. As soon as you see, Pre boot system assesment, you can release the Fn key.
5. Let this go on, and then you would see a rainbow, press Y to continue.

Results.:
1. No problems have been found on the system, would you like to run the remaining memory test. ANSWER IS : NO. press the power button to turn off the machine.

2. Error code: - 1000-0141, 0142, 0143, 0144, 0145, 0146. or 2000-0141, 0142, 0143, 0144, 0145, 0146.

Replace your hard drive. ASAP.

Now if no error comes, then the best option is to reset the computer back to factory settings the day when you first bought it. but remember you would loose all your personal information on it.

2 As the computer starts, press <F8> on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
NOTE: -
You must press <F8> before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press <F8> after the Windows logo appears on the screen, the Advanced Boot Options menu will not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
3 Press the <Down Arrow> on the keyboard to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press <Enter>.

2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
NOTE: Some systems like Inspiron Mini 9 (910) do not support System Restore as they do not have <F11> nor any substitute.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

Recovery


If you want to restore the computer to its original state, these instructions are available from the DELL website:
(http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6400/en/om/trouble.htm#wp1064167)

Use Dell PC Restore by Symantec only as the last method to restore your operating system. PC Restore restores your hard drive to the operating state it was in when you purchased the computer. Any programs or files added since you received your computer—including data files—are permanently deleted from the hard drive. Data files include documents, spreadsheets, e-mail messages, digital photos, music files, and so on. If possible, back up all data before using PC Restore.
To use PC Restore:
  1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
  1. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.

If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish starting, and then restart the computer again.
notice.gif NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.
  1. On the next screen that appears, click Restore.

  2. On the next screen, click Confirm.

The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.
  1. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

note.gif NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.
  1. When prompted, click Yes.

The computer restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer was turned on.
  1. Click Next.

The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.
After the computer restarts, click OK.
