Welll; it sounds to me like there are errors on your hard drive and to fix this problem you are going have to go to bios set the boot device for cdrom and put in the operating system disk it willl scan your harddrive first to see if there are any errors on it and then it will begin to copy the files that are needed and then once alll that is done it will restart your computer but if you have any floppy disks in you will have to take it out and then it will restart it will begin to scan what network devices are on your computer this will take awhile .. once everything is done like your browsing services,control panel,etc you should be finished at this point but you might have to setup your ethernet adapter

Mouse has gone crazy,you click on arrow and it will keep on clicking,it start draging while crossing web page,it highlite every thing blue


Try booting up in safe mode then Restore your system back to a date and time before you came across that web page and started having problems.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore
Select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. You don't have to use the restore point that is shown just select option to see more restore points.When System Restore finishes, reboot your computer.Report back and let us know if it is solved or not.

Did you actually delete it and why? OR does the boot up just say file is missing? Possible virus!

Try booting in Safe Mode for now, Power On, then keep tapping F8 key till you see a text screen with boot options. Choose Safe Mode. When fully started, will take longer than normal, log in and go to Restore. Start button, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Choose the Restore option and pick a recent bold date.

After loading the laptop, the screen goes black showing only a white mouse cursor that you are able to move. Even tried loading in safe modes but the page still doesn't load.


Please restart the computer in safe mode and check if that is loading. If safe mode loads well, then run system restore (Steps depend on the windows version you have) and restore your computer to a earlier date (say 1 or 2 days earlier) when you know that your computer was working fine.

If you cannot login to safe mode then we might have to do a manual registry restore
Please use the link to know more about it. If you are going to use the step, please keep a printout handy of the instructions.

For Vista & Windows 7
Boot from OS DVD and run startup repair.

Remove printer drivers


You can check your laptop further by booting it from Safe Mode. To boot your computer in Safe Mode, try to tap continuously F8 function key on your keyboard immediately when you start your computer. It will lead you to an Advanced Menu from where you can choose the option "Safe Mode" and hit enter to boot your computer to safe mode. Now try to check the display driver in the device manager (Control Panel >System > Hardware >Device Manager) If it is not there, try to reduce the screen resolution and reboot your computer to the normal mode. If you are still getting the blank screen in Normal mode, try to boot computer back in Safe Mode and try to restore your computer to earlier time when it was working fine for you. To do so click on Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the "On this list, click a restore point" list, and then click Next. Now confirm the restoration and click on Next to complete the restoration and follow the wizard.
Cheers!

PC BOOTS HALF WAY


Try booting into safe mode. If it's a driver problem, safe mode will allow you to start Windows with only the bare minimum of hardware and drivers being engaged. To get to safe mode, press the F8 button on your keyboard during the Windows boot process until it takes you to a screen to let you select Normal, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, etc. I would suggest not using anything other than just Safe Mode. From there, uninstall any software or new drivers that you recently installed. Alternatively, you can use the System Restore feature to rollback to a previous restore point.

Acer asprie 5315 running xp sp2 system restore wont work,cant perform a system restore.


Boot to safe mode by pressng F8 as soon as you start the system,
Once you are in safe mode. try to access system restore. In safe mode you will get access to the system even if it faces a severe error.

If it is complete system restore (Restore to factory defaults) which you are looking for then press ctrl+F11 as soon as you start the computer. It will wipe the entire data and restore the system to its factory settings wiping out the entire data in the system.

When i restart my computer no icon came out


try rebooting in "safe mode", by holding 'F8' as soon as you start your system, until the black screen with several boot options shows up. Select "safe mode with Networking". If you can boot it up and see your icons again, try a "system restore" to a time when it worked properly -maybe a few days ago?
To do a system restore:
"Start"
"Programs"
"accessories"
"System tools"
"System Restore"
"Restore my computer to an earlier time"

I hopes, please let me know.
