Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook ?

Aspire 5672 WIMI Unit has been blue screening daily. Got a virus about upgrading virus protection (pop ups every minuet.) Tried to load PC Doctor program to remove the pop up virus. Could not get the system to reboot correctly so I tried to reboot in safe mode (F8) but that did not work and now the laptop won't boot up at all! It won't turn on. Is it the power supply or hard drive or something else? Thanks, Scott


Answers :

Before you even get that far to be able to hit f8, you will want to enter your bios usually by hitting delete, almost instantly when computer boots and usually won't have a lot of time. try delete or esc key. If this is out of your expertise i highly recommend having a professional do this as if you change the wrong setting in the bios your computer won't be fixable. You won't to change your boot settings to have the computer boot to your cd/dvd rom first. Put a copy of windows XP in your disc drive then it will boot from cd room, then reformat and reinstall windows. This will remove all data permanently so make sure that is what you want to do. If you need further assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,
