Acer aspire 5920 series wont load past windows loading bar

\015 I open my laptop hit the power button the acer logo pops up with an option to hit f2 for setup it then goes to a screen to either run windows repair or start windows normally with either of these options it will go to the little loading bar that says microsoft corp underneath it and just stays there on occasion it will go past that but just to a black screen\015

OMG ... i was completley distraught. i bought my ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP 6months ago when i was trveling in italy ,im in austarlia. I use it torun my online game ; » www.themafiawarz.eu - and has all my files.

When i got the black screen o death i first am here to the boards finding nothing i was further distraught..

I AM HAPPY TO TELL YOU MY FRIENDS, that i am typing this on my lil baby

Heres what you do....

* you need usb disk drive
* a second computer with internet access (can be work cafe friends place)
* a file you can download from acer or search yourself called ZGIA32.zip

Formatyour drive in fat (*note i tried fat as directed in a number of manualsthough then tried fat32 and it worked then though suggest you try fatfirst *shrug)

open zip file and copy 3309.fd and the fla.exe to the usb stick

rename 3309.fd to ZGIA32.fd

Turn off your laptop making sure that both battery and power supply is plugged in and attach the usb stik/drive.

holddown FN and ESC keys and press the power button, continue to fold FNand ESC keys for 7-10 secs then release - at this point the power lightshould be blinking and you should still have the black screen of death.

press the power button once while its blinking - this will initiate a bios update * DO NOT PUSH ANYTHING AFTER THIS

After 2 mins the aspire should reboot itself , wait for about 7mins if it dosent before rebooting manually

Took me three attempts as i just wasent doing something right though TA DA!!!!!

and i still have my files. yeah team take this and run, hope you havent spent money yet smile.gif
It sounds like you have some type of Windows system corruption, either due to a bad driver, or a corrupted file. Have you tried booting into safe mode yet? If not, hit F8 before you see the Windows splash screen and select "safe mode". After Windows launches safe mode (assuming that it will), you can go into device manager and check to see if there are any driver conflicts or compatibility problems.

If nothing jumps out at you, remove the video driver/display adapter and try rebooting again to see if it will continue into normal mode.

Your problem could also be spyware or viruses. A great antivirus program is AVG [ http://free.grisoft.com ] and for Spyware, use Spybot [ http://www.spybot.com ]

It is possible that if you have too much spyware infection on your computer, that Windows will just not load at all ...it's rare, but possible.

Wost case scenario, you might need to reinstall Windows. Since you already got stuck with the Windows repair, a clean install might be in order. However, you will need to back up your files first, so if you can get into safe mode, do that first before reinstalling Windows.

Let me know if I can be of further help :)
