Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5033 Notebook

1 Answer

Won't boot to desktop

When I start up my Acer 5100 laptop it brings me to the startup repair and says that it cannot fix the problem. When it asks to start up it will still restart and do the same thing. Any suggestions?

    Well, it seems to be something about debugging certain ports. I thought the whole debugging thing was taken care of in that huge vista serive pack file update. What a rip off!

Aspire 5475 freezes on startup


It is most certainly a driver, but if you cant access the safe mode also that could be a hardware issue.. Try to troubleshoot with a windows installation cd. Put it in and boot the pc. It will start the windows instalation, you choose repair computer and not install windows. The command prompt will open, try to troubleshoot from there.. Thanks!

My acer aspire one wont' boot up, can anybody help?


It appears as if your startup files are damaged/corrupted. The way to fix it is with a windows disk, or the restore disk that may have come with your laptop. Pop it in and boot up off of the disk. When the options come up, select "repair" or some variation of a repair option. This will replace all your critical system files and should allow you to boot up again with minimal loss if any. There really are few other options outside the what I've described unless you take it in, which will cost you far more than I'm sure you'd like to spend on this. Good luck.

Acer Aspire 5100 laptop's screen remains black at start-up


This is probably a hardware issue with the monitor. Just to make sure, uninstall, and reinstall the monitor's driver. If that doesn't fix it, it's a hardware issue.

You will have to either take it to a shop, or contact the manufacturer (your computer should be under warranty if you've had it for less than a year).

To repair your computer using Startup Repair follow these steps:
  1. Boot into Vista installation DVD
  2. Choose your language settings and click Next
  3. Click Repair your computer
  4. Choose your operating system and click Next. This should bring up System Recovery Options.
  5. Click on Startup Repair
Startup Repair should now start diagnosing your system to identify the root cause of the failure. Once it has identified the root cause, it would automatically start repairing your computer. If you are curious to know what Startup Repair did, you can click on the details link and see which tests Startup Repair ran to diagnose the problem.
After Startup Repair has finished the repairs, click Finish to reboot your computer.
Your computer should now be able to boot normally into Vista!!
Note -- If your computer cannot boot into Vista even after repairs, then go back to System Recovery Options and run System Restore.
That's it! This is how you use Startup Repair for most unbootable situations.
