Try this if your problem sounds the same or similar:

I purchased the HP-Compaq C765TU Presario, serial # CND81233B5, from Octagon Computers. My notebook came with only "Freedos" because I was going to Dual-boot Windows XP Professional & Linux, but I found out that my notebook is only “Vista Compatible,” because I could not find the drivers for the sound card & Atheros wireless adapter & the Linux I used, Ubuntu does not have all the drivers needed, so I uninstalled, & I added the only Windows Vista OS that I could get here at Octagon Computers in Tacloban City, Leyte, Philippines, “Windows Vista Starter!” (I’m an American married to a beautiful Filipino woman 1 year younger than me, & we are living in the Philippines. I’m, also, Retired USAF.) I went to the HP-Compaq site & downloaded all the new drivers and essential update for my notebook to make sure my notebook was as it should be by HP-Compaq standards. All is well, but only for a little while!

The first problem that I encountered was that after I would Logon, the Welcome screen would do its processing then go to a blank desktop with the cursor - no icons, no taskbar, nothing, so I used “control, alt, delete” to bring up the tasks page & started Task Manager. I found that the “Explorer.exe” was not listed, so I ran a “New Task” from the file menu, & my whole desktop came up. The notebook runs fine after this is done, but I had to do it all the time.

So, I found & bought a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate on the Internet & was forced to do a clean install because it was a full version (not an upgrade), which formatted my Hard-drive, but I had backed up all my files ahead of time, so as to not lose all my important data. I went back to HP-Compaq site & downloaded all the new drivers and essential update to make sure my notebook was as it should be by HP-Compaq standards. After doing this New Install, my notebook worked perfectly! However, the same problem has come back as I had with Windows Vista starter.

I have always used Anti-virus, and I run “System Mechanic Professional 8” because it has all the tools needed to seek & destroy viruses, spybots, etc…, & recover/repair data.

I have never had this problem with Windows XP Professional, but this laptop is designed for Vista, and I didn't know that before I bought it. I'm still looking for a permanent FIX. There must be a way to fix this problem permanently!

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5100 will not boot

Two possible Solutions:

1) The Hard Drive has come unseated - Disconnect the Power and REMOVE all connections, Close the Screen & Turn your Laptop Upside Down and Remove the Battery, Locate the Hard Drive Access Panel and Remove the Screws from the Panel, Remove the Panel, Remove the Hard Drive. Carefully Replace the Hard Drive, Replace the Panel and Reconnect the Battery & Power Supply. See if the Computer will Start

2) The Operating System is Damaged OR the Hard Drive is Dead - You will need to slave Your Hard Dive into a Second Computer and Backup ALL you Personal Data OR RISK loosing it. If the Second Computer can NOT read the Drive, the Hard Drive is Dead (A Computer Repair Company may be Able to Help)

Once your Data is Safe, you can try to Repair the OS by Booting your Computer with the Drive in it. Begin pressing F12 or F10 at bootup (Once a Second). You will be presented with an Options Page for:

System Restore (FIX WINDOWS)
System Recovery (Wipes your Computer and Retores the Factory Software)

Hope this Helps!
