Try pressing F12 on boot-up. I'd recommend getting another PC as I have had multiple problems with this one. Or at least make sure you back up work regularly

My Acer Aspire V5-571 does not load up it shows acer screen when turning on the laptop then loading floating ball comes on screen for a few seconds then black screen ? can any one please help ?


Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

Acer is going straight to a black screen after the acer logo in startup....it just shows a tiny blinking line. It goes no farther. I need help fast


Apparently your Acer cannot find the operating system. As soon as the Acer logo comes up, there should appear in one of the bottom corners "F" & a number should appear. Immediately start pressing that F number (top row of keyboard). This should take you to a boot screen. Scroll down to boot sequence. Hit enter. Make sure boot-up sequence is CD or floppy drive first, second should be HDD, then escape. Restart computer. Should then boot off CD drive. I am assuming you have an operating system (XP, windows, etc.). Let me know if this doesn't work.

Hi my laptop wont go to windows , it just saying prepare boot to os . can anyone help please


Windows may not be starting due to a driver problem. In any case, see if you can get into the Windows Advanced Options Menu as follows...
1. have the ac adapter connected
2. power on the laptop and watch the screen
3. when the Acer logo is showing, press F8 repeatedly
4. Windows Advanced Options Menu should now start
5. once you are in the Menu, use the up and down arrow keys to select an option
You could try starting with ...
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
OR
Safe Mode
where you could do a System Restore to an earlier date when the system was working
If none of this works and you don't have any user data that needs to be saved, then do as follows.
All Acer netbooks have a factory install image on a hidden partition of the hard disk. Suggest you should re-install the original windows factory image. All user data on the C: drive will be cleared by Acer eRecovery which you would start up as follows....
1. have the netbook connected to its AC adapter which is plugged into AC power line
2. power on the netbook and watch the screen as it starts up
3. when the acer logo is showing, hold down the Alt key and press F10 repeatedly
4. until screen indicates Acer eRecovery is starting
5. once eRecovery is loaded, follow the directions given on the screen

HOW TO GET TO BOOT MENU ON ACER D260 WITH CD


You have first turn on "boot from cd" in bios menu (ie. where u see the ACER logo when u turn oin the laptop, the first screen you see). This can be done by pressing the hotkey (usually, F2, Del, F12) it depends on the manufacturers. After that save and exit. Reboot with the cd in the drive, wait for "press any key to boot from cd...." and that's it!
