Acer :: Boot- Aspireone

Feb 3, 2010

I have an acer aspireone with xp originally installed on it. One day I got an error message and it no longer started up. I installed the acer aspirone one linx operating system on it but I don't like it and don't know how to use it well. I tried installing xp from recovery cd's provided by acer but the comp wouldn't read the usb-cd drive after I tried to boot from it. I looked online on how to delete the partitions and install xp again. However, now it won't even start in acer op (linux) and I get "error 22" message when i start the computer up. It doesn't even go past this message and won't boot from my usb cd drive nor my usb external harddrive.

What can I do? to make it boot from the usb cd drive with the recovery xp cd.

Acer :: (6935G) Boot Problem After Restart (cant Access Bios / Boot From Disk Etc)

Jan 9, 2010

I got this laptop a few days ago, I currently have 7 and XP installed on it and kind of have vista...(read further down).

My 7 seemed to break today after playing around with a program called powerstrip trying to get my external monitor to show the right resolution (I've realised now the cable vga was broke, but meh) but this is not the full problem, after windows 7 failed to boot I tried to boot xp after turning it off during the windows 7 splash screen and now im stuck with a dash when I turn the laptop on (I dont know if its actully related to something I've done or not).

If I turn the laptop on a flashing dash comes on in the top right, it then stops flashing and turns into a none flashing dash further up the screen and just locks here and I cant do anything at all other than trying to restart it. When I had this problem previously (at least I think this problem) on my desktop it usualy turned out to be something usb related but I have everything unplugged (all though the bluetooth adapter light is on when it is doing this) so I realy dont know what to do...............

Acer Aspire E1 522-3657 :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Oct 11, 2014

I have a Acer E1 522-3657 computer, which my son set-up for me but did not make the recovery disc(s). The unit is just outside of the warranty period when the hard drive failed. The hard drive just makes a clicking noise and after the logo screen appears it goes to a blue screen with a box that has the following message with in, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert recovery Media and Hit any key.....Then Select 'Boot Manager' to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media.
 
I have installed a brand-new Western Digital 1T Sata3 harddrive to replace the Toshia 750 GB original Drive. After turning the computer on and at the logo screen I press and hold F2, this takes me to the InsydeH20 Setup Utility Screen. I see under the "Information" menu that the installed harddrive model and serial number appear. I see in the "Boot" menu, Boot Mode: "UEFI" and Secure Boot: "Enabled".
 
Under the "Exit" menu, Exit Saving Changes is highlighted. When I press F10 a "setup Configuration" box appears asking to save configuration changes and exit now? "Yes" is highlighted to which I hit Enter and are returned to the "Default Boot Device.......page. I then hit ecs twice and are at a black screen with the message No bootable device -- Please Restart system_appearing in the upper left corner of the screen. I then push and hold the power button until the computer shuts off.
 
I have ordered from acer the "Acer E-recovery Media Disc Set", which is specific to the SNID of my computer. I have not attempted to format the new hard drive in any way.  I assume the E-recovery Media Disc Set will handle that operation due to the multiple partitions required.
 
In view of the above situation, do I need to set up the computer in any way before I start to utilize the E-recovery Media Disc set. I assume the Media will be on CD's. The computer was running Win 8.0 which was updated to Win 8.1 and was running very well, very stable.

Acer :: PQSERVICE Will Not Boot

Jul 14, 2009

My problems lies with the PQSERVICE partition. It is still there and I can see it with Ubuntu. When I attempt start up, I get the message c:ootcd and an error status message. I also have recovery cds that I have tried to to use but I am not able to boot up from them or get any sort of indication that they work , only a blinking cursor then back to the c:ootcd error. My question is if I just completely delete and reformat my entire hard drive, pay that "lovely" $20 fee for new recovery cds from Acer as I'm out of warranty, would it work?

Acer :: 5920G Could Not Even Boot

Dec 8, 2009

Past few days I got my 8600M GT 256MB DDR2 GPU overheated and it is broken now. Sigh!! The system was still bootable and I did even hear the login sound not until today when I just unplugged the HDD and GPU myself. When I put them back together, I won't boot as usual. It stops loading a while after I turned it on and stays freeze until I shut it off.

FYI, I removed the HDD to copy a backup of my content into another PC. While connecting to other PC, I did change some setting on the Ownership of some folder to get it accessible. As for the GPU, I just simply removed it to take a look myself and snap some photo of it, then inserted it back as before.

So, I wonder will these techies stuff I did awhile back could corrupted the bios that would make the system halted halfway.

Additional information that I would like to share is that I have decided to replace my GPU with ATi Mobility Radeon HD3650 512MB DDR2 instead of the original and did learn the method to do so. Read on some info regarding flashing the GPU, but was not sure bout it.

Acer :: 5315 Won't Boot

Dec 20, 2009

I have a Acer Aspire 5315 that has been causing me a lot of problem. It recently started to shutdown with no warning and keept doing it for a while until it died. I have searched the forum for answers but havent been able to find anything good. This whole week it hasnt been able to boot. I tried pulling out the harddrive, switching memory modules, cleaning up the clogged heatshink without any resultats. I think the shutdown problem was due to the clogged heatsink and the computer overheateting. Now it won't boot at all.

When I press the powerbutton the fan spins up and the power led turns green. 4-5 sec after that fan stops and after few more sec the green led turns off but no boot.

Acer :: 3680 Boot From USB

Sep 22, 2008

I am working on an Acer 3680 Laptop for my son.

The internal IDE port got fried and cannot be recognized by the laptop so I came up with the bright idea of installing an OS on a USB drive and booting from that.

XP appears to be the only OS that will install onto an external drive. But, when booting with XP, I get a BSOD..

VISTA won't install to a USB drive so I installed VISTA on the external drive using a workstation, but then when I tried to boot up with the laptop, it got the solid B/W bar at the bottom and just sat there.

Is there any option to boot an ACER 3680 with an xternal drive?? Or is this laptop now useless?

Acer :: TM 8200 No Boot >.<

Feb 16, 2008

I purchased this laptop about 2 years ago now via Military Tech Source (online military "discounted" sales for PC's) I loved this thing to death. Played my games on deployment's, watched tons of movies, etc. Up until recently I haven't really had any issues of significant value. I lent it to my GF to use as her household PC and now the errors surface.....

For a series of about 2 weeks, the machine would not boot up properly from a standby mode (no video display, sounded like booting up but no video) forced hard start and would work fine

Then (weeks 4-7) it would be selective as to when it would fully boot up. Most days you could fire it up several times and on the third or fourth attempt it would fully boot (no boot = no video, no sound from HDD turning, lights come on but nothing else)

Now, it wont boot at all ( week 8-* ) No display, no sound of normal boot up, nothing. I still get the LAN/Bluetooth and "HDD" lights to come on and the HDD light blinks a few times like it is starting but nothing ever comes up.

I took everything apart and cleaned it out to see if maybe dust or something became an issue, checked and removed/installed the RAM, HDD, DVD Drive, VoIP phone, etc. Attempted the "remove battery - unplug - hold power button for reset" method and still nothing. I am completely clueless and I am pretty sure my warranty is up by now >.<

Acer :: Can't Boot My Timeline

Jul 19, 2009

I had installed Windows 7 and it was working fine but it blue screened and now it won't start. Fine, I decided I'd just reinstall it but if I put my flash drive in it will just stick at the Acer Empowering People splash screen and won't move for a while and then just goes to a screen about something being not connected and then it'll boot to the normal start Windows Recovery (Which doesn't work) and start Windows normally. If you try to start it normally it'll either stay on the Windows animation starting or get to login and then i'll input my password but it goes to Blue Screen.

I formatted the flash drive using this guide [url]

I've tried having USB FDD and USB HDD as the first boot option and still nothing.

Acer :: Aspire 9301 Boot

Oct 3, 2008

Machine is an Aspire 9301AWSMi running XP SP2 rather than Vista.

On boot, the machine shows the ACER BIOS screen but after that the display just goes blank. Have tried to boot from the Windows XP CD and the only difference is that following the BIOS screen I then get a message saying "Windows is inspecting your hardware configuration" and then a second or 2 later, back to a blank screen. No disc or CD activity.

Is this another ACER Motherboard problem or maybe a HDD failure?

Acer :: Aspire One Doesn't Boot

Nov 10, 2008

After I turn on the power, the harddisk led doesn't turn on, just the CAP and NUM led flash once. The screen doesn't turn on, even the Acer logo doesn't appear. I can hear something is turning inside the notebook, but it's definitely not the harddisk.

I wonder if I had pressed some wrong buttons, and disable the notebook.

Acer :: 5315 Laptop Will Not Boot Right Away

Jun 14, 2009

1. If I press the on switch, it doesn't turn on the laptop right away. I have to press it twice or three times and then it starts booting up. This occurs whether I am using the AC or just the battery which is fully charged.

2. My next problem is probably connected to problem one. If I try restart, it will not restart and I have to press the on/off button twice and then maybe it will reboot.

All the above just started after I tried increasing the memory of my laptop, 5315 to 4gb. Then I had a problem the screen went black but I realized later that my battery wasn't fully charged and when it was, my laptop was able to boot and work properly.I replaced the memory with original 2gb of ram.

Is the Acer laptop able to turn on with just AC and not the battery ?

Acer :: 1350 Powers Up But Won't Boot (x 2)

Oct 20, 2009

a friend of mine gave me their Acer 1350 laptop to repair - the fault was that the screen suddenly went blank, even though the power goes on and the fan turns. When I first looked at it, the screen came on, it started to boot into Windows (XP Home), it got past the loading screen (with the horizontal scrolling thingies) and then the screen went blank, and ever since I've never been able to get the screen to come on.

I tested it and couldn't hear the hard drive seeking, so I guessed that the mainboard or CPU had failed. I took it apart (using a service manual as a guide) to see if there was anything I could do to fix it, I removed the CPU and reseated it, used new thermal paste and put it all back together, but it still had the same problem. I had made sure that the screen cables were connected back correctly, as per the service manual instructions.

Also, the power light didn't come on, even though the CPU fan comes on when you press the power button (for a few seconds), and then after leaving it on for a few minutes the fan runs again for a few seconds, so something is working!

Anyway, I bought a second hand Acer 1350 off Ebay for 70, which was running fine, just didn't have the hard drive. As soon as I got it, I put the hard drive from my friend's Acer into the new laptop, and it booted up Windows fine, everything ran perfectly. Problem solved. Or so I thought.

After turning it off, I tried to turn it back on. Result - it now has exactly the same problem as the first laptop! When you press the power button, the fan goes on for a few seconds, but the screen remains blank. The hard drive doesn't seek.

I've also tried it without the hard drive, hoping that maybe that was something to do with it, but it makes no difference, the screen is still blank, so I can't even look at the BIOS.

I have been racking my brains over this - what could possibly have caused this problem in both laptops? Some kind of virus on the hard drive, which stops the laptop from even showing me the boot screen? The screen stays off no matter what I do. The power light doesn't come on, even though the fan has started turning, and the hard drive is running (but not seeking).

Acer :: 5610 Will Not Post/boot

Mar 30, 2009

I am working on my brothers laptop.

Its an Acer 5610 that came with Vista.

He had a broken screen and a virus. I repaired his screen and he then took it to a "buddy" who partitioned the HD to save the pictures ect on it and put XP on the other partition.

My brother was updating drivers when he rebooted it and it just wouldn't restart.

This is a description of the problem:
"I hit the power button , lights come on (no HD light though). and the Fan spins for about 30 seconds and stops. After about 1 minute the fan starts back up and stays on.
Power light , battery charger light stay on but nothing happens."

I pulled the covers off the back and everything seems seated and where it belongs.

Recovery disks have been ordered (before I knew the full extent of the problem) and will be here in a week or so but I don't think they will do any good on a system that wont boot.

I have repaired a few desktops but this is my 1st laptop repair.

Acer :: 5100 (xp) Windows Won't Boot

May 20, 2009

Acer 5100 (xp) stopped working a few months back! It says windows could not start because the following file is missing
WINDOWS2|SYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM.

Telephoned acer for recovery disks! Problems is a bought laptop through a friend of a friend. As I didn't register laptop and can't provide password, they won't sell me disks.

Tried alt f10 but nothing happens. Enabled d2d and recovery in boot up screen. Still no joy.

I have managed to download recovery dvd's (x2) from bit torrent (Acer Aspire 5100 Restore DVD's) . I then set the boot priority to boot dvd first.
The files are iso. I have burned the image using imgburn on 2 dvd's. The disk starts the loading RAMDISK image. Then as it flicks to the acer recovery it quickly jumps to please wait.....

I am now going to decompress the files using winrar, then burn the files. But not sure this will make any difference.

Does the CMOS battery need changing?

Acer :: Aspire Wont Boot

Nov 19, 2007

I have an acer aspire 1681wlmi which has just finished its extended 3 year warranty. The problem started by freezing upon start up on a white screen then the freeze up got quicker and quicker each time i rebooted it. Now the power on starts the hd, everything flashes like normal and after 5-6 seconds the hd stops and the hd light goes out. It wont boot from cd, it tries, the cd spins then everything goes dead again. I have tried all the previously mentioned fixes mentioned on this forum like removing battery, memory etc, i even tried to dismantle the whole thing but when it got down to the motherboard i did not want to break anything and put it back together again. I havea feeling the mother board is dead....

I've had a ferrari 5000 for over a year now and never had any problems with it until today. When I power on my laptop it boots up to the Ferrari picture where it has the "Press F2 to enter setup" and it just stays there. I try and press F2 to enter set up but none of the keys on the keyboard seem to work. It just stays frozen on that picture.

I'm able to use the CD ROM but it still leaves me in the same place.
