Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Won't boot up

I just replaced the screen on this used computer.
I get the ACER logo and can get into the bios set up. However, the boot process stops after a few seconds. I've tried booting off the recover CD and off a ubuntu CD.

This sounds like a bios glitch. Use another computer and burn the bios to disc from Acer's support site. Run the bios flash, and then try the machine, this should clear it up.

    Easy on the rating. I only run this during the day, so you'll have to be patient. Not everyone is on line at the same time.



    The bios flash is easy, you do the bios download from the Acer support site, save it to the desktop, close out the internet, and run/install it.



    I would appreciate something better than "Thanks fo trying".

Wont boot bios windows


Try pressing F8 while the laptop is booting and select "safe mode". If it boots fine in safe mode, it might be either driver issue or the laptop's videocard giving up. The driver issue is corrected by installing the right drivers, you can ensure if the problem is on the hardware side by setting it to boot in 640*480*256 (or lowest possible resolution) and see if it boots. Also, try pressing F8 during boot and select the option to log the boot process. The log file might then tell you what causes the stop/hang.

How do I get past theYour pc will restart in 2 days to finish installing important updatesIt won't let me enter my password to unlock the pc


Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart.
This will set the boot order
If this fails you might try some of these
Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)

System completely locked out... will not boot!


there will be a setting in the BIOS that will stop the ACER logo, and you can see the Diagnostic screen, and get an idea of where in the process it is hanging....

Personally I bet it is hanging at the 'detect SATA' devices stage.

Open the side panel and remove and re-seat all SATA device cables, at BOTH the device and the motherboard.

If that fails, then the boot sector may need to be repaired on the hard drive. you will need a Windows disk for the OS that your client has though....although if it's an MBR disk you can use an XP or a win2k disk to repair. There are downloadable tools in iso format that you can burn and use to boot from the CD and then repair the boot-sector ...

Icant get my acer travelmate to boot from cd


You need to set the BIOS configuration to boot from the CD.

I'm not sure how the Travelmate enters the BIOS (Setup), it could be the F1, F2, ESC or DEL ket after the ACER logo and before the Windows logo appear on the screen. When the BIOS opens, go to the Config page, set the CD to be the first boot device.

When you turn on computer look for Acer logo on boot up. Press F8 or F10 or F2 while the logo comes up several times (if you miss turn it off and try again)and then you can access your bios. Use arrow keys and enter to clear the password. Follow the bottom of the screen for directions and if you need more help let me know and thanks for using FixYa.

My acer will only boot to the Microsoft Windows loading page then it starts over. How can I reboot my acer without a disc?


Enable disk-to-disk recovery
On boot, press <F2> to enter BIOS. To enable disk-to-disk recovery (hard disk recovery), activate the BIOS utility, then select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen. Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled. Save and reboot. While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to enter the recovery process. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.

How can I prevent my E Machines logo from loading everytime I start my computer. I have Windows XP.


Press and hold the F2, F12, or F8 function key (one of the three at a time) after jhearing a single beep following a restart. One key (usually F2) will allow you to change the BIOS settings. (If the computer boots normally, restart it again and try the next function key.)

BE CAREFUL. Don't change anything you are not sure of because doing so can make your computer inoperable!

You will eventually get to the BIOS settup utility. You will have to use the keyboard to navigate to the setting that disables the splash screen. (You may have to enable something like "detailed boot report" or "OEM settings", depending on the computer.)

My American Megatrends (AMI) BIOS has a "BOOT" section that contains a "Full Screen Logo" setting. I "Disabled" it to do what you want to.

Incidentally, the splash screen doesn't really slow the boot process much, since you are simply substituting a static picture for the BIOS boot information.
