Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have an acer 5570z lap top. it will not start. i get an error that says Windows failed to start. it says to insert windows installation disc and restart. i bought it used but received 2 homemade discs for the factory settings. neither one does anything when i try them. iam not sure what to do now.

Answers :

If this Acer laptop has the 'hidden' system rebuild disk, you might want to try using it to rebuild the system. Many of them have a hidden partition on which the whole system resides, to allow you to wipe out and rebuild the computer.
\015\012Check at the Acer web site to see if your model has this.
\015\012My Acer 5920 laptop - which I am using to answer this, has this very feature and I have used it twice when I peronally screwed up my installation of Vista, by doing things I should not have done <g>. Turned out just fine.
\015\012You might get there using F2 upon powering it on.
