    Re: acer aspire one 10" netbook

    Does it boot into safe mode? If it does go to Control Panel > System > Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings > uncheck 'Automatic Restart'. This stops XP rebooting when it BSoDs, allowing you to note down the "stop error".

    Unless the hard drive has died, you should be able to view the data from another install of Windows by using a caddy. If the data is corrupt, the recovery software on Hiren's boot CD should be able to get them back - don't recover to the drive you are recovering from.

    XP can be installed from USB stick.

    Re: acer aspire one 10" netbook

    You can recover your data by installing a custom copy of Windows 7 if your tinking of upgrading , all your old data will be placed into a folder on the C: drive named Windows.old for you.

    It will tell you this as you go through the process of a custom install,

    ***** DON NOT DO A WINDOWS UPGRADE *****

    Hope this helps

    In my experience bad sectors will be followed by more and more bad sectors. When you get it back make sure to backup anything you want as it's likely to fail again.

    When it does get, a new drive and install it.

    Re: acer aspire one 10" netbook

    I got one and every so often it does that and needs windows reinstalling. Is it me or does anyone think that the older aspire ones used sub standard parts.

    Acer did have a bad rep for a while, especially for their laptops.

    Their rep seems to have improved since the launch of the Revo marque...

    There are bios fixes for the Acer One Aspire Netbooks depending on which model you have and what is going wrong.

    if its 2 years old then its probably xp, you will have the sticker on the laptop for the cd code.

    there are many places to download a copy of the disk off the net. or borrow a copy :-)

    you just need a copy of the version the same as your sticker and in practice no need to buy another version.


    Avoid accidents, do things on purpose!
