Remove the Hard Drive and see if the system will then boot to the XP CD. If it does, then most likely the hard drive has failed.

Go to the Acer web site Support and Drivers, put your model number in, your operating system and order a DVD with a factory image for your Aspire One. It may cost you, but maybe not. Next order on optical drive that runs on two usb ports from eBay. I have one that costed $50 with shipping or maybe a local tech has one.

Cannot boot from cd and run setup


When booting, the writing on the black screen should give you a couple of options akin to

Press F2 to edit boot options or
Press "Del" to enter setup. (bios)

You can use either, but you need to set your CD/DVD disk drive as the first boot option.

How to install of win xp pro X64 in acer aspire 4730Z laptop


Hi there.
Put the disk into the drive, restart the PC and hit F2 as it boots up, this will take you into the bios.
Change the boot order to the CD rom as first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and will now boot from the CD drive, just follow the on-screen instructions for the install.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi Lindsay,

That's too bad about your system.

First, what kind of problems were you having as the reason for wanting to perform a system restore?

If your system will not boot off the CD, then it might not be #1 in the BIOS order. Try this:


  • Power up your Acer system.
  • When prompted (after memory testing completes), press CTRL + ALT + ESC to enter CMOS setup.
  • At the CMOS Setup screen select Advanced BIOS Features
  • Verify the Boot Options Sequence is set to the following order:
    1st [CD-ROM]
    2nd [Floppy Disk]
    3rd [Hard Disk]
  • Insert the Acer System CD, DISK 1 in your CD-ROM drive.
  • Press F10 to exit and save. When prompted, Do you want to save CMOS data?, select [Yes], then press ENTER.

    Aspire 3000 will not boot


    Hello Halfwit, Your laptop is trying to boot from lan because it can't for some reasons to boot normally from the hard-disk. Try to listen if when you power on the laptop the hard-disk spins or makes any noises. If not there could be a problem with the connector that links it to the mainboard. If you hear a noise or the hard-disk spins then you may have a corrupted OS (windows) or some bad sectors problems. The best way to find out would be to try to boot the laptop by using a windows instalation cd. Boot from the cd-rom and check to see if the windows installer find your hard-disk and can copy files to it. You will need to change the boot order from bios to enable the cd-rom to boot first or enter some boot menu (if provided) and select " boot from cd-rom " or such thing. If you need more help with these please post back or contact me or other experts on the live chat function on this site. Good luck.
