Acer Aspire won't boot to the top! Help please!

Hello! I really hope you can help me on that because I don't know what to do... so this is what happened: I was playing a game heard music etc. (laptop: Acer Aspire E1 - 772G). However nothing happened, but then 2 minutes after my laptop froze and I waited patiently. After some time, he said something I don't remember and at first there was a sad Smiley biiig [ ]. downstairs he said some .sys arrested or something, I don't know... However, I turned off my phone and he did it again. Normally there must be the Acer's Logo and a Slogan just after clicking the power button, and some quarters would begin to turn around. Well this time it was no small circles and I started worrying. After like 1 Minute of waiting my screen just blacked out and 2 seconds after the logo was back once again, but without the circles. Then a black and blue message popped up, which says: "boot device by default lack or failed to initialize. Insert the recovery media"(I don't remember the rest). Well what I have tried is the following:
ALT + F10 (absolutely no reaction)
F8 or F12 don't know (shows me the error Code and what to do. He also says to put in my Windows installation, which I did not. I don't have any recovery media)

After the message appeared I pressed Enter, and there was a menu where I couldn't do anything. He only told me to press any key, if I put in any recovery media. As I said I didn't, so I just close the laptop. After that, I pressed the power button to restart my laptop... Well, it was the same thing. After that, I turn it off again and tried the things I listed before. I hope you can help me, quick if possible I need my laptop for many other things that are more important than to play haha ^ ^

I look forward to a quick response,

try to boot to the BIOS by pressing F2 at startup, check on the home page if your HARD drive is listed.

If it listed to go to the exit of tav and choose load setup default, press F10, Save and exit

try to start

If you still having problem with missing starting device, your HARD drive is probably dead or having some bad problems; If you are still under warranty, please contact Acer support.

    Hi all

    I have a problem with my satellite of sad, after 3-4 days I installed a new operating system (tried with XP SP2 and Kubuntu) system does not boot to the top, every time it freezes with no reason, the only way is to perferom a new installation of the OS.

  • My Sat Pro M40X won't boot to the top

    However, sometimes it will start by a long beep, then two short. You can here to windows that open towards the top, but the screen remains black.

    Anyone any idea how I can fix this.

    Thank you


    Hi Dave,.

    This is a hardware failure (as indicated by beeps when you turn on) and indicates that a component has failed to POST.

    As the device is new I would stay there a repairer authorized for repair under warranty or outlet where it was purchased.

    Kind regards

  • Re: My Satellite P200 won't boot to the top

    Hi all
    Noobie here,
    I think I caused a problem wher my P200, it won't start, it was very slow and I went into the Task Manager and deleted some programs that were not running, but using the memory.
    In my view, there is a good chance I can I have deleted something that the system needs because it will not load upward.
    I turn it on and I get a light on the HARD drive to the front and a light in the dvd drive, but nothing else, I tried pressing F8 and put the recovery disc in but nothing?

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Appreciate any help.

    I guess you are using the "F8" key to access Windows boot options and Windows is not to leave you. If this of * definitely * the case, then you must insert the recovery CD and change the device to boot from the screen as the laptop boot - can't remember which affects it is than its displayed on the bottom line. I think its possible that W7 can be repair o the problem and a full installation will be unnecessary

  • Satellite 1410-401 won't boot to the top

    Hi all

    I tried to boot mode safe but still no joy!

    Maybe this isn't a software issue at all, any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you very much

    I can confirm the information published by naccioman.
    The serial key you will find at the bottom of the device will not work with discs from Microsoft. The serial key belongs to the Windows operating system that is pre-installed on this laptop and it s an OEM license.
    So you only chance is to reinstall the OS from the original disc of Microsoft.

    First you should check if the laptop boot from a Windows CD.
    If it will not start and that installation would not start so a hardware problem couldn't be the reason why the laptop doesn't work properly.
    In this case I recommend that you test the RAM and HARD drive.

    Are most of the cases the defective or not compatible RAM causes issues.

  • Tecra A10 won't boot to the top

    My laptop does not start at the top.
    When I plug in the power supply of the Green LED on the front of the palm rest (on the far left LED) flashes slowly.
    No other led is on at all. By pressing the power on button doesn't produce no effect.

    Please can someone tell what might be the problem with this laptop.

    "Maybe someone knows if the special 'sequence' of the flashing is listed as meaning any lease of particular problem."

    Your kind help in this matter would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    There must certainly be a hardware malfunction.

    > "Maybe someone knows if the special 'sequence' of the flashing is listed as meaning any lease of particular problem."

    Knowing that you can read the flashing code by using the following procedure:

    Short blinking means 0 and long, 1.
    The code can be something like 0001 0001

    Error code begins with LSB (least significant bit), the error code should therefore be read starting with the last piece. This means that the code: 0001 0001 appears as 1000 1000
    This code you need to turn it into HEX and you will get the error code.

    But in my opinion, even if you want to know what is causing this problem, especially it s any malfunction of the motherboard (maybe also part connected to the motherboard as a RAM module) and it means that the integer part must be replaced.

  • Satellite P100-434 won't boot to the top

    Hi Ive got a Satellite P100-434 and Ive had for more than a year.

    Unfortunately today I couldn't get started.

    The power led lights up, the HARD drive makes light very briefly.
    The display lights. If she does not even there to boot in the bios.

    Any idea what the problem might be? Im hoping that the CPU or the motherboard is not fried.

    see you soon


    Unless you bought the extended warranty, I don't think you have a lot of luck. My suggestion is to return to the place of purchase, if you still have warranty.

    However, try to remove the battery for 1 minute and then replace the battery again. Try it turn on.

    Also try with the power cable plugged in power and remove the battery.

    If all else fails, then you have a very expensive paper weight.

    Good luck.

  • Satellite L350 won't boot to the top

    Satellite L350 my daughter does not start. When you press the power button, the HARD drive light and there is no HD activity. Something that was noted is that the battery is fully charged a couple of days, but today when I tried to boot up the laptop, the battery led shows that it is unloaded. Does anyone know a remedy to fix the problem?

    Sorry, but I still don t understand what happening exactly when you try to start the laptop.
    Remove the battery and connect the laptop on AC power only. When you do this press power button to start the laptop.

    What exactly happens? You don't see anything on the screen?

    Hello Steve

    Sorry, but if there is any sort of reaction and if you are not able to enter the BIOS settings which suggest serious hardware problem. On this path, it is not possible to say what the problem is. Unfortunately I put t see any solution it and I guess the unit must be sent to the service partner.

  • My Satellite 2410 won't boot to the top


    My funny hard Satellite because last week, but today it seems to really have given up... when I boot I get a screen that gives you the ability to start in: safe mode, safe mode with the mode of networking, security with guest orders, the last know config, and start windows normally, but no way can you select this error message appears :

    Windows didn't start because the following file is missing or damaged \windows\system\config\system you can try to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original CD-Rom. Select 'r' setup in the first screen to start repair.

    I have the original disc to start but I can't boot from the CD drive and when I press 'r' in the first screen, nothing happens it loads just backward on this black page that tells me I have an error.

    Any help would be appreciated, I have all the files I need sustained if I just need to know how can I reformat from here.

    Thank you


    First of all the good news: it seems that there s nothing wrong with the equipment and the installation of the new operating system should solve small problems starting.

    And now for the bad news: I think you need to format the HARD drive and you will lose the files and stored information.

    > I have the original disc of starting but I can t he can start from the CD drive
    How have you tried to boot from the CD? Don t press the R key, but you have to either press F12 for the Boot Manager or press the C key immediately after starting the laptop. (The CD should be pre-installed)

    Dell Latitude 5430, out of warranty.  The power light turns on, but he never goes anywhere.  No don't beep, no Dell logo.  It is powered, but I don't think it's to see the hard drive.  On switching on, hard drive lights up for a split second once, and then it remains off.  I tried to remove the battery, push the power button, replace the battery, no luck.  I pressed the Fn key with power button, nothing.

    No don't beep, no boot, the screen remains black, but power is on.  Help, please.

    See if you can get an image on an external display. If you can, the problem is with the cable display panel or the video inside the system.

    If you can not, the problem is a bad mother.
