    Very interesting! I have the *exact* same problem! The computer is 14 months old. Damned 1-year warranties!

    Has anyone found a source for replacement motherboards? (Even an if it's an upgrade, that's fine. It's just an unusual form-factor.)

Just a comment for colliewob, and others.

The AP2000 is an all-in-one system, there is no video card - it's onboard.

My AP2000 just did the same thing yesterday, running fine at noon, came back 5pm black screen, no boot, nothing working. The USB keyboard (stock) lights do not change, which should if the PC starts to BIOS. I suspect the serial controller is dead, and second guess is onboard video.

Either way, it is likely the system is junk, unlikely to get a replacement mb 2 years after manufacture. This model is no longer made.

My acer laptop cdrom does not boot start at all

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the CDROM driver via the device manager.

Right Click on Computer. Click on Manage. Go to Device Manager.

Right Click on the CDRom driver. Uninstall. Restart the computer so that windows will generate the driver. Update it. You can either go to the website of the computer's manufacturer to get the updated version of the driver or do it automatically by using RadarSync.

I hope this helps!

How do i reset my settings to factory settings if i cant get to my desktop but i cant do nothing because its on the windows xp??

To start the system recovery:

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media.
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

    Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

  8. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form. If your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.
