Preferred Solution: acer aspire m7720 pc wont start

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi efrain. Welcome to TSF!

Do you have your XP system CD? If so, try booting with it and select REPAIR when you get that option. That will bring you to the Recovery Console. When you get to the command window prompt, type "fixboot" and then "fixmbr" and then type "exit". Try rebooting your system and see if that works for you.

Good day!

Mike

That is what those messages are basically telling you. It hasn't found a hard drive

Remove and reseat the hard drive and see if they go away.

You may be able to boot from a CD or USB and test the hard drive if it is recognised.

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5517 laptop, and it won't stay on. I let it charge for 3 hours, and turn it on.It will go to the first boot screen where you have the F10 or F12 options, and then it will just turn off. It turns off as if the battery was just removed from it. Other days, it will turn on, and work great. And, sometimes it will turn on, then work for a while, then turn off, as if the battery were removed from it once again. I have tested the battery, and charger, they both work fine, and the battery holds a charge. Any ideas on what might be going on?

I have never had laptop that broke so easily without fault from user. Did you know First time i bought this with in 3 weeks speakers stopped working. than after 2 months whenever i turn it on it does disk check up. and into 6 months the whole thing died. it was under warranty so sent it to acer repair shop. got it back every thing worked at first. but in first week speaker stopped working again along with 1 usb port. within the 2 years i had this already spent enough for a new ultrabook. Even though my friends said acer is not a good, the thing looked so nice, so bought it anyway. I learned my lesson will never buy an acer product.

i recently bought an acer aspire m1640 off of someone. But when i turned it on it made a loud EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE noise. I narrowed down frow where the noise is coming fom and its coming from the lower right corner of the motherboard. Its not from the hard drive or any of the fans. it seems that its coming from a small cylinder with a hole on top of it and there is a small lithium ion battery next to it. Does anyone know whats wrong or how to fix it???
 

A:acer aspire wont boot noise EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

The EEEEEE noise you are referring to is coming from yur motherboard onboard speaker, and is a series of high pitched beeps. I;ve looked at the board maual and it does not refer to the different beep combinations it has.

Try powering up the Pc with the top off the case and check things such as the CPU fan is running, check all hardware is seated correctly as it more than likely will be some form of hardware failure. Also try replacing the CMOS battery (the small lithium ion battery you mentioned)

I shut down my acer aspire 5570 while it was updating, now i turn it on and it either tries to load windows, gets to the "loading windows logo" and stops there for hours then the screen goes blank... Or it will take me to start up repair and says "repairing disk errors this may take over an hour" so i let it repair and after a few hours the screen goes blank... Is there any way i can fix this without losing what was on my laptop?

Also i have to do the same when plugin in the power cord to charge wich works fine and bayerry too, but wont charge unless i kress a key stroke, specially function of the left control key.

I have an Aspire E1-510 laptop with windows 10 Core installed.  I tried to install Acer Care Center ( since the laptop is only a year old) and it sais it isnt supported.  Will Care Center be updated to support more models of laptops?  I understand that acer cant make the program be supported by all models, but at least keep it working on recent models.  To whomever can answer my question, thank you very much

well... its all a learning curve... installing new PC into old Acer Aspire T140 case and got it all done but the front panel connectors are not singular or pairs but as so..

PWR BTN - 2 wires going into a block of six with one pin blocked out on corner
HDD/PWR LED - 4 wires going into a block of 6

obviously Acer designed the case to only be used with their motherboards...

can anyone confirm that there are no "converters" or such and the only solution is to buy a new case?

Hi all I'm hoping someone can give me a little help. Windows 10 needed to do a large update and I could'nt create enough space on the drive for this so I decided to do a system reset rather than uninstall everthing to create the space. As it stands now when powering on the logo screen comes on for a while then goes off and comes back on this loops indefinitely. So this is what I've tried:I can access the BIOS and have moved boot from USB FDD to the top because it made me feel betterCreated a windows 10 boot drive but it won't boot from it.Alt F10 takes me to recovery page which tells me its broke and required media is missingI can acces boot manager but the only option is to boot with windows boot managerAny help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Aspire E 11 wont boot past Acer logo

the first bootable device must be windows boot manager. if your windows 10 installation media is not booting, that means is not UEFI compatible. download the windows 10 iso file using the official Microsoft tool:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 once done, use Rufus to create the bootable USB flash drive, use the settings in its website main page:rufus.akeo.ie/?locale=en_US plug the USB to your laptop, press F12 at boot and choose the USB flash drive.

I have an acer aspire 5735z. It worked all fine except that around a month back, the laptop wouldn't turn on when I pressed the power button the first time. I have to keep on pressing it again and again for it to start.
Can someone please help me with this.
 

A:Acer Aspire won't start on first try

Yeah, the same thing happens with the battery and the adapter.
Once the machine turns on it runs all fine. The only problem is with it turning on, sometimes it starts up immediatey and sometimes it takes from somewhere between 1 minute to 10 minutes.

Someone suggested to open it up and check the power switch but since I'm new to this I don't wanna risk anything.

Hi there, I have an Acer Aspire One and for some reason it will not start up. Every time I turn it one it shows the start up Acer screen for about 3 seconds then immediately shows an error that reads: "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll Please re-install a copy of the above file". It is an Acer Aspire One Model NO: KAV10 and SNID: 91011971916. Also, everytime i try to use the recovery option by pressing ALT f-12 it takes me to the recovery screen but does not allow me to even choose a recovery option. There is no disc drive but I do have a flash drive available if that file is in fact download-able. Or if anyone has a recovery disc that can be transferred to a flash drive that would be great. Thanks in advance for your help.
 

A:Acer Aspire One - Can't Start up windows xp

Hi, ALT + F10 when pressed at start up should bring up the Acer eRecovery environment.

At the Acer eRecovery screen
Choose the Recovery Actions - select Next.
Choose the Restore option.
There may be two to choose from, System Restore/Recovery - Reinstall Application/Drivers.
Choose System Restore/Recovery.

But all of your data and files will be lost and overwritten.
======
To try and save any needed data and files use a USB External DVD Drive - similar to one shown here.

I have an Acer Aspire 1640z running XP sp 2. It has been working perfectly but has recently started playingup!

VERY slow start up and shut down (nothing seems to be happening).

Touchpad and keyboard working intermittently (although a usb mouse works fine).

Explorer.exe and then Connections Tray won't end properly when I shut down the laptop, so I have to do it manually.

The rest of the laptop seems to work fine.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!!!

A:acer aspire 1640z keys only work intermitent and wont close down

Clear ALL your cache and temp files, defrag, make sure the air vent is clear.

These are 'simple' places to start.

If that doesn't 'fix' things, be OFF line, click Start, Run and type msconfig and press enter.

Under Startup, uncheck everything.

Under Services, put a check in 'Hide all Microsoft services' and then uncheck what's left.

Reboot. (Restore AV if disabled via msconfig) Any change?

What can you see is the Windows Logo and "Starting Windows" coming up and then a dark screen and nothing happens.
I've tryied to re-install Win 7 booting from a DVD but it just won't start (never seen something like that before). System Recovery and all other trics from Acer do not work either.
The only solution I can see is to format the partition C somehow...any ideas?

Hello bobr, welcome to Seven Forums!



For a partition specific wipe (secure erase) of just the C: partition use Option Three of this tutorial at the link below.

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD


If there's nothing on the entire Hard Disk Drive (HDD) that needs saved, you can use the Windows 7 installer using diskpart to wipe the whole HDD, see this tutorial.

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation



If you need to copy out the data first have a look at this third tutorial.

I click OK and it shuts down then starts back up with the Setup is starting services then back to the same eroor message above. Any suggestions?

A:[SOLVED] Start up of Acer Aspire 7551

Hello,

An option is to return to factory settings.

1.Restart the computer

2.When the logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.

3.When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.

4.After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails during the recovery, recovery of the operating system will need to be from Recovery Media.

1.Insert the disk labeled System CD into the computer's disk drive and restart the computer.

2.When the logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly.

3.Select either CDROM or DVD as the boot device, this may vary depending on the system.

4.When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first Recovery CD.
5.After the system recovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

A:Acer Aspire Laptop won't start/boot

You can either have a failing hard drive on your hands or an over heating system or perhaps both. First lets test your hard drive by going to another computer if possible.

Download UBCD which is in my signature.Burn the ISO Image to a blank CD using Imgburn (How to burn a ISO Image using Imgburn) burn at lowest speed. With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The make and model of your hard drive, Seagate, Maxtor, Drive Fitness which is Hitachi, Or Western Digital. Perform a short and long test. Could also be called "Standard" and "Extended" test or also "Comprehensive" test. The Seagate hard drive test will work on most drives.

If you can not find the right test for your hard drive your OEM computer may have it's own hard drive diagnostics testing tool. Refer to your OEM computer documentation to find out how to access these test. Also try going to the manufacture of your machine to find documentation about it. Also consider going to the manufacture of your hard drive to look to see if they have hard drive diagnostics test. The ideal test or method would include an ISO that could be burned via an image to a cd which would be made bootable.

Also go into bios under Hardware Monitor or PC health and look at temp readings and post here.

Then we will give the next steps depending on the results.

Also I see in your profile you have listed Windows XP. This a Windows 7/Vista portion of TSF. Can you tell us which version of Windows you have so we can better assist you.

I have a Acer Aspire 1800 laptop using Windows XP Home edition. The Windows does not start and when I switch on the laptop I get a blank screen. I have Recovery CDs which are in two parts. I have tried to put the CDs but no joy. Grateful if someone could help me, please.

A:Windows XP does not start on Acer Aspire 1800

In order to use the Recovery CD's, you would need to boot directly from them.

To do this, go into your BIOS, and switch your Boot Priority to boot from the CD drive before the Hard drive.

I have 2 Acer Aspire AX1200-U1520A and they both died almost at the same time (one month apart), neither one of the machines will start, so I took the power supply to a store and they told me it was fine. How can I find out what's wrong with the compter without having to spend a fortune on diagnostics. Don't now if it is worth sending it to a place to fix it and be charged an arm and a leg and maybe be better buying a new one.

Thanks!!!!

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone can tell me what's going on with our Acer laptop..

Turn it on and we get a blue screen saying the following

STOP: OXOOOOOO7E (OXCOOOOOO5, OX8OCF8640, OX88183554, OX88183250

acpi.sys-Address 80CF8640 base at 80CDE000, Datestamp 4549adb7

Also sometimes goes to a black screen saying repair, click repair and it just keeps going back the the same screen, can't even start it in safe mode.

not had it long so if I can't fix it myself then I'll take it back but would like an idea what's going on!
Acer didn't supply a disc with it, it's all preinstalled and the operating system is vista home premium.

cheers susan

As you've tried all the non-destructive methods, you can restore your PC back to defaults by holding the [Alt] key and tapping F10 as soon as you turn the PC on to access the recovery program. Have you recently installed any new software that could be pinpointed as the cause?

I recieved this laptop for my birthday on the 28th May, and has been running absolutley fine until about half an hour ago.
I turned it on and it wouldn't go past the "Acer" start up screen, so I turned it off manually and tried it again. Still the same problem and all the keys do nothing when I press them.

I've tried to look up solutions on the web but the only one says to re-install Vista with a disc, and mine came pre-installed with Vista and NO installation disc.

I'm unsure if this is a Vista problem or an Acer problem, so sorry if its in the wrong board.

Any help on how to fix this?
