Hi ankushh91,

try a different Bootable disk and see if it will boot, also try you disc on a known good computer see if the disk you are using is bootable aswell to eliminate the cause of the issue.
When Booting from a disc make sure the disc is inserted in the dvd/cdrom drive once you turn the computer ON then you will see press anykey to boot to CD or disc if this shows just press any key this will boot to the Disc if it is Bootable it will show the message press anykey if the disc is not bootable it will only try and boot to the Hard drive directly.

I hope this can help,

mvincentc

SOURCE: PC freezes on boot-up

Try booting the thing in Safe Mode. Upon startup (after the Acer logo goes) press F8 several times. You will be offered a menu select Safe Mode (at the very top of the list). If the system reaches the desktop, you can repair your Windows. For the three fixes below you will need to go Start Menu>Run...
1) Write: fixmbr, and press ENTER.
2) Write: fixboot, and press ENTER.
3) Write: chkdsk, and press ENTER.
(The later will take several minutes, but you can read what stage it is doing).

SOURCE: Bios update failed *flash*

You are in deep trouble

A problem with refreshing the Bios is that you can corrupt the old one and then the new one does not load leaving you stuck in limbo land

I would contact Acer support and hope that they offer a pre-programmed Bios chip to replace your corrupt one.

Check the BIOS to make sure that the CD rom is the first boot devices in the bootup sequence, also make sure that the cd rom does show up in the BIOS.
Make sure that the CD Rom itself is good or the boot cd you are using is good, try it on other PC.

You can do a bit of detective work and run MSCONFIG.EXE froma command prompt and go through that - particularly the boot, services and startup entries. The startup entries in particular - as from there you can select what is and what is started at startup - and a process of elimination can maybe help you track down the problem. 'Registry cleaners' may help - but often are more problematic themselves thn they are 'fixers'. You could edit the registry by hand, using regedit, but that is NOT recommended unless you really know what you are doing. Do note that if you change the start-up programs (i.e. change their enable state), you will get a warning at start-up that you are running a custom start-up using msconfig.
As a last resort, a fresh installation of Windows will fix things. Running a virus checker might also be a good idea.

You probably need to set your boot order in BIOS (setup) to load from CD first. Reboot the computer and press either F1 or F10 repeatedly until the setup (BIOS) menu comes up, then, using your arrow keys, navigate to the boot menu and set the boot order to CD first.

If you can't get into the BIOS through F1 or F10, try other "F' keys until you get in. Also the "Del" key.

Recovering to factory settings is kind of a drastic measure just because of a system hang. You would be better served to find out why the system hung. IN FACT, understand that depending upon what is wrong, the system may hang during the recovery, leaving you with fewer options for repair.

Post back if you want to try to troubleshoot this further. It will take a while, but we should eventually be able to determine what is causing the hang.

It could be just an application that needs to be removed or re-installed. Have you installed any new software recently? What software were you using when the hang occured? What operating system are you using?

It could just be a virus or a bad memory module. Are you able to boot into SAFE MODE" (press the F8 at boot)?

If you can boot into Windows, go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Event Viewer" > "System" and check for any error entries. Also look at the "Applications" log.

How to instal in pc


Hi, you haven't said for what operating system, but for XP. First you will need to change your primary boot device to CD Rom, to do this boot into BIOS by pressing the F1 key during initial boot fase, save changes after boot device has been selected, insert windows CD into drive and reboot. Select boot from CD, which appears during initial boot fase. Allow files to be installed, once finished you will need to delete operating system and repartition hard drive, then format hard drive. Once this completes PC will reboot, ignor boot from CD and allow PC to boot normally and it will start to install XP.

Vista - Windows explorer hangs during start


Sounds like a corrupt start up. Install your Vista disc and boot from the cd. After it loads windows it will give you several choices of what to do, choose repair startup and let the disc do its magic. When it is finished it will give you other choices after that. Take the disc out and restart and see if that takes care of the problem. If it doesn't, load the disc again and maybe try a early restore point, say a week before the problem started or think back to what happened to make this problem occur in the first place and go back to that restore point. You can pick earlier restore points then what is initially shown to you, just take your time. When restore is done, make sure to remove the disc.

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.

Asus laptop NTLDR missing


Hi supertwins,
Once you deleted the drive C: (You have trashed the operating system.
You're Asus driver CD will not help you at this stage.
Did you receive a restore CD? If yes you load that into the CDROM drive & boot to the CDROM.
(You do not have a restore CD)?
Than you are left with the Windows CD. Load the windows CD into the CD-ROM drive. Power up the notebook. Start pressing the F8 key on the keyboard. Soon you will see a screen that says: Please select boot device: Choose the CD-ROM drive that has the windows CD in it. High light the CDROM & press enter key. Windows should start to load. Follow the instructions on you're screen & install windows. During the install windows will restart & you will see: to load from CD press any key... (DO NOT TOUCH anything! Allow windows to continue all by it's self.
This same screen will come up at lease twice. (Just let it go).
When windows has finished you can than remove the windows CD & load the Asus CD into the notebook. Install all the software on the Asus CD. When finished installing the software from Asus, update windows through windows update service.
Good Luck!
