    Check your bios, make sure your sata controller is set to ATA, not AHCI. Otherwise the computer wont see the drive when trying to install XP in some cases.

Hello my son can't remember his code to his laptop acer aspire 3680 can you please help.


Hello Elizabeth
Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer While booting watch for, and.. "Press any key to boot from cd" the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files. "Inspecting your system and loading files". When you get to the Welcome to setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows. Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement Select the option to repair. "If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it" Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation, press R to begin the Repair process. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes. Shortly after the Copying Files the pc will restart itself. During the reboot, do not boot from the CD again, setup will resume automatically. when you see the Installing Devices progress bar(Lower left), press SHIFT + F10. A command console will now open up At the prompttype NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. You now have access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel. Pick the account you need to change and change your password. After you've made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the repair, you will need the product key. Once that is done you should be able to log in normally with your new password.
This is taking advantage of a security flaw in windows, your other option is to reinstall windows overtop of your current installation, or to format and do a clean install.
Good luck, hope this was helpful.

Acer aspire one starts to boot up stops at windows xp screen


Hi there !

I suggest you try to run your computer on safe mode by pressing F8 when booting up. Advance menu options will pop up and choose run on safe mode. When it load the Windows, try to figure out what you installed or you before your computer happens. I suggest that you download also windows registry cleaner to fix some errors in your computer that prevent you to go to windows screen when booting up on normal mode. Run the FULL SCAN and press the fix errors button.

I should somehow help your computer.

Back up all of your personal data and files. Store your backup on external media, such as an external hard drive, USB flash drive or CD/DVD.
  • Step 2 Insert your Windows Vista installation disk.
  • Step 3 Restart the computer.
  • Step 4 Re-configure your BIOS to boot from CD first if Windows Vista boots normally after inserting the installation disk and restarting. Find these settings in your BIOS "Boot" options.
  • Step 5 Press any key to enter the Windows Vista setup.
  • Step 6 Enter the license key, select your activation preferences and agree to the license agreement. Press "Next" after entering a value for each item.
  • Step 7 Choose a "Custom" installation.
  • Step 8 Click on your primary partition. This should be your "C:\" drive on Disk 0. Click "Next."

    How to formet my acer laptop


    Back up your data. Before formatting your hard drive, it is essential that you back up all of the data you would like to access after the format is completed.
  • Step 2 Insert your Windows XP sp2 CD and restart your computer. If you own an Acer laptop, you most likely will be running Windows XP.
  • Step 3 Press "enter" when the welcome to setup page appears. Press the F8 key to accept the Windows licensing agreement.
  • Step 4 Select your CD drive as your boot device. You will want to boot your computer through the Windows start-up CD instead of booting from your hard drive.
  • Step 5 Follow the on-screen prompts and click "yes" when you are asked if you would like to format your C drive. If you click "yes," the formatting process will finish, and you will have successfully formatted your hard drive.
