Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook ?

When I went to restart it I kept getting the ACER screen and a note saying to press the F2 key to restart. I did this and it would restart Windows VISTA ( HATE IT ) work for a minute or two and then freeze up again. I had to do this several times. The last time it really freaked out , flashed a blue fuzzy screen with a bunch of gooblety-gook on it and c


Answers :

Your IT friend would have to be mistaken, I state this because without a hard drive you will not have an os. hence them replacing the hard drive being covered by warranty when as far as they are aware there is none, it is what they are considering. If you lost the hard drive they need to determine if replacing it is in there best interest as your warrenty prabobly will not cover a missing hard drive.

Get out your vista os disk call them back and explain whats going on if your warrenty is still covering your system that is. They will assist you on getting it back online. or you can try and get the error messages that are being generated and we will be happy to assist you.
