Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Vista Home Basic

Up until yesterday my computer was working correctly - Acer Inspire with MS bundled. The screen froze and I shut the system down. Try to open up, all I get is Cannot find operating system. Have looked through the BIOS [nothing to change there]. Any idea what it could be? If MS is corrupt would they download a new system for me with my license number on a separate computer as I can't open mine at all.

Unfortunatley No they wont give you a new copy of the software.
Did you get a windows cd/dvd or any restore discs with the system?

Does it have a windows product key on the bottom?

If it has the product key for Vista on the bottom then you can re-install vista if you can get a cd.
Borrowing a cd is not illegal as you already have a license for Windows. So if you dont have the cd just try and borrow one from a friend. Install windows and if it gives you the option to repair the system then go ahead and do that. if it doesnt then yo might need to do a full install.

Let me know if you have or can get the cd, if you run into any issues also let me know and I will help you work through any problems

Received a blue crash screen, Alt,F10 for erecovery, showed copying files, then tried to reboot and shut down without completing reboot. Now when try to start, showes windows small window and moving dots...


You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

Everything is green the screen the pictuers the letters etc.what`s wrong i have a windows vista /acer


If you have a desktop computer, try connecting a different monitor, to see if your monitor is not producing all three "primary" colours (Red/Green/Blue), thus resulting in "mostly-green" colouring.

If you have a laptop-computer, trying connecting an external monitor, to see if you get the correct colours on the external monitor.

Computer froze shut down by power button now will not start os lets me choose repair or start normally both tried just goes black screen then reboots over and over


Turn the computer on.
Press F8, repeatedly, until you see a start-up menu.
Choose "safe mode".

If it boots, open All Programs.
Open Accessories.
Open System Tools.
Open System Restore.
Select a date/time when your computer _was_ working correct, and go "back" to that checkpoint.

If that does not help, and it boots, use the Windows XP/Vista/7 "File and Settings Transfer Wizard" to create one file, holding all your E-mail, contacts, and music files.
Copy that file to an external disk-drive.

Then, take a deep breath, and reinstall Windows.
Reinstall MS Office.
Reinstall your anti-virus software.
Reinstall Adobe Reader.
Reinstall your other program.
Finally, reload from the external disk-drive.
