It sounds like your hard drive is crashing. You should run diagnostics. You can find out what manufacture makes your hardrive by looking at the label. It appears to me that the harddrive is accessible through a door on the bottom of the laptop underneath where your right palm would sit if you were typing. There are harddrive diagnostics listed by manufacturer at the URL below. If the harddrive test fails you should replace the harddrive. Andy

I turn on my labtop and it says a system file is missing or corupt and i dont have a disk drive to reinstall windows what do i do

First try booting the pc via Safe Mode..

When you first turn on the netbook.. when the Acer Splash Screen comes up.. press F8 repeatedly (a few times at least)..

You should get a option to start windows in Safe Mode.. chose this.

You may be able to do a system restore and go from there..

If you can boot the netbook using safe mode.. and have access to a network that has a pc with a disc drive.. you can setup that drive to be Shared on the network(My Computer/Clik on the CD/DVD drive/Clik on Properties..sharing..etc).. and reinstall that way over the network via that drive.

Hopefully it won't come to this. and you will be able to correct the system file in safe mode or do the system restore.

Best of luck!

I have acer aspire when i turn it on only blue screen come on how can i fix it

Hi !

Blue screen means that your Hard Disk drive is damaged or dead and it cannot be repaired. Solution is to replace new the hard disk.

Good Luck and thank you for using FixYa !

I have an Acer Aspire One with Windows XP and when I turn it on a black screen comes up saying "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfull..." Then it gives me a list of...

Try to use the last known good configuration the issue should be fixed.. If afforadable try to get a external DVDdrive.. If not try to get one from friends.. Nothing is working.. call acer they will take your computer and reinstall the OS ....

Problem opening Windows

Usually a sign of Hard drive problems, boot up in safe mode if you can.
Right click on C: drive, properties/tools/error check and let it do a full scan with automatically fix errors chosen.
You may want to back up as much as you can if you manage to get into safe mode

My acer travelmate will not come on it starts up then says the windows did not shut down properly it then goes to start windows normally then nothing else happens is there anything i can do to sort this...

Sounds like a corrupted Hard Disk. The Hard Disk can get errors on the Drive over time... there is a utility in MS to fix this, but you are not getting that far.
If it does ask to Run a Disk Check... let it do so...
If it does not... you need to go to Safe Mode and Run it Manually.
Get to SAFE MODE: Pressing F5 after the System Info Screen appears but before you see Windows Booting. SELECT SAFE MODE in the Text Screen.
Once there... goto My Computer | Right Click C:\ Drive | Left Click Properties | Tools Tab | Click Error Checking... check both boxes. It may want to schedule it.. do so and Reboot.

My Acer Aspire 1 gets stuck when the Windows XP logo apears and just keeps booting, what can I do?

Hard Drive error on the Disk most likely... Try to go to Windows "Safe Mode"... pressing F5 before you see the XP Logo and after you see the system information screens. Once in safe mode... run ScanDisk.
Open My Computer | Right Click C Drive | Left Click Properties | Tools Tab Run Check Disk for Errors... also check mark both boxes.

My Acer keeps on checking the file system on C: for consistency--after it is finished I get the screen to start windows normally and it will start the check all over again

have you try to check volume errors ?
From My Computer, right click the Drive (c:) then Properties, click Tools tab and then click Check Now, shut it down and restart.
Or you can even click Defragmentation, but it will take a long time.
Be sure to back up your impotant files before do Defragmentation, just in case.


My Acer Aspire won't boot up past the Window's Loading bar

Log in to safe mode by pressing F8 during startup, if you see windows loading you have missed your window to push the F8 key. When the options menu comes up choose safe mode.
While in safe mode if it loads, click Start > Computer (My Computer) > right click on your ‘C’ drive and click properties > click the ‘tools’ tab > click the ‘Check Now’ button under ‘Error-checking’ > make sure the options ‘Automatically fix…’; and ‘Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors’ is checked. A dialogue box will come up stating “windows cannot check the disk”, just click the ‘Schedule disk check’ button and restart your computer. When the computer starts up a check disk will start, let it run. you might want to go do something as the check disk may take up to and sometimes longer than an hour.
Let me know if that helped, and please rate me after, thank you.
