acer v3-571 boot fail

Q: acer v3-571 boot fail

About a year and a half ago i bought a acer V3-571. for the last 4 months, every once and a while, it decides not not turn on. this is what happens:
When i press the power button the power button light was well as the power indicator lights turns on for only about 5 to 10 secconds then it turns off.
The screen does not turn on, it just stays black.
eventually, after pressing the button for a couple of days it decides to turn on.
some times this problem lasts only a day but sometimes it last a couple of weeks.
i have tried all of the typical things: press the button down for X amount of time, or strip the pc first then press the button. none of these work reliably.
i just want to know what is happening and how i can prevent it from ever happening again?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi guys,

I was reading How to get Acer laptop to boot from CD? and seemed to be making progress, but unfortunately the discussion fell flat and my problem persists.

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire V5 Touch which came pre-installed with Windows 8 Single Language. Unfortunately I need this Laptop to run Windows 7 Professional for work. In the past I have played around with Duel booting on my Desktop, however this Acer is proving to be quite a challenge. Thus far I have managed to create a new Volume using the disk management application in Windows 8. I have also managed to set the first boot device in the (F2) bios to the CD/DVD rom by configuring it in the Boot tab as first boot device. Now in theory the Laptop should boot from the Disk while restarting, which doesn't happen.

I have also spammed F12 trying to access the boot menu, to no avail. Every-time the the laptop just boots straight into the log screen.

The ideal would be where I would have Windows 8 and Windows 7 duel boot when booting the laptop.

Please assist

A:duel boot on Acer fail

ok update: I have set the boot option to legacy boot which made the laptop boot from CD. The Win7 installer loaded fine. I then when into the drive options, deleted the partition I made and then chose create partition like I always did with fresh install. After I did that I got a message that read: Can not install windows on this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT.

I have no idea what is wrong, and if I am going about this in the wrong way. Any assist would be greatly appreciated.

Friend of mine gave me her Acer Aspire 5742z-4813 because it fails to boot and eventually asks to repair, which it doesn't. Can't enter safe-mode, either.

Only thing she's said is that her daughter installed Norton 360 a few days before it crashed.

Things I've tried:

At command prompt, ran the following with no effect: bootrec.exe /FixMbr, bootrec.exe /FixBoot, bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd, chkdsk /f E:, and finally chkskd /f /r /x.

I also entered BIOS and changed HDD mode to IDE from ACHI. No joy.

Thanks in advance, guys.

Last week my Acer ATC-115 would not power up. Tried all the work arounds I could think of, different outlet, different power cord, and nothing helped. I contacted support, was given a service order number and drove 2 hours (one way) to drop my computer off at the Acer depot.

Hi, I've been having some issues with my Acer Aspire 5739 (Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit) laptop with BSODs and malware, and eventually gave up and decided to just do a factory reset with alt f10 at the Acer splash screen. After it completed what I think is reformatting the drive, it starts up and gets to the screen where it says its setting up the computer for first use, and I get this error message:

"The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click OK to restart the computer and restart the installation".

When I hit OK it restarts the computer and the same thing continues to happen. I tried performing the reset again but it didn't help. After searching for threads with similar problems, my first thought was to try a clean install after 0ing the drive, however one of the issues I had originally is that the CD drive suddenly stopped recognizing disks a few days ago. To make matters worse, the numbers on my Windows COA sticker are all rubbed off (laptop is ~15 months old, purchased from Newegg so no Windows CDs). At this point is there anything I can do short of buying a new CD drive and a new Win 7?

I discovered was that there is a requirement for a disk space area for recovery partition and operating system partition. The total amount the drive has available is 30GB. When I left the default size I noticed that there was no disk space available. I then rectified this issue by making recovery partition and operating system disk partition 15GB each and there was no error performing the install. It was able to install the last disk language disks and then prompted the second phase would initiate after the restart.What happens is the recovery dialogue appears and the copying interface starts at this point the error exception is thrown.I am installing windows 8/8.1 if I select 8.1 in the drop down for OS's there is a default of 12GB for the recovery partition and the operating system has a default of 50%. I change the operating system to 100% which is 15GB and then change the recovery partition to 15GB. This step ensures that there is enough hard disk space to be able to install all the CDs without disk space error. then when I finish the second phase after bootup appears:error: "Fail to apply image, error code is: -1" With the recovery disks that I ordered is a guide that states I must for 8.1 change the drive from 13GB to 30GB that is the recovery partition because below that is a formula that calculates % of disk space allocated to the operating system which is default 50%. It is really confusing because if I change the recovery partition to 30GB there is no disk spac... Read more

If i split the storage drive into 2 partitions the computer will not boot....if i disconnect the storage drive and boot with only the ssd it will boot again my pc boots again....also if i rejoin the storage drive back to one partition and reconnect it..it boot fine with it connected again....so there for some reason windows on C drive does not like my storage drive having a different size or being 2 partitions and it appears it needs some information from the storage drive if conceted to be able to have successful boot??... could this have something with the old MBR on my storage drive from when windows 7...

My story:  The hard drive failed in my Y510P a few weeks ago, so I installed a 512 GB M.2 NGFF ZTC SSD.  (I bought the SSD a few months ago when hard drive first had symptoms, but then held off installing it due to lack of time and because HD passed diagnostic tests with no apparent problems).  Anyway, after the HD finally failed, I found I could boot it to BIOS and see the hard drive information, even though I couldn't boot the HD.  I originally had Windows 8.1, but had upgraded to Windows 10.  Prior to upgrading to Windows 10, I had backed up the recovery partition to a USB drive.  After physically installing the SSD, I tried using this recovery USB to clean install Windows 8.1 to the SSD (thinking Windows would then prompt me to upgrade to Windows 10 again), but the recovery software was unable to do that (so what good is the recovery software if it cannot deal with a catastrophic HD failure?).  Not that I wanted to go back to Windows 8.1 again, but I am really surprised it was basically useless under circumstances it might really be needed.  I was just trying to use it as a stepping stone in the recovery process. So next, with a little searching, I found I could download a Windows 10 installer directly from Microsoft.  I did that and it installed Windows 10 without any trouble. Yesterday morning, I found that my Y510P would not boot the new drive.  It would d...

So, you have a Windows 7 disk and when you place it in the disk drive it takes a while. It's relatively normal for disks.
Once it's installed the boot times will be much much much less.

What are you trying to do? You want to install it over the current Windows XP?

How much time does it take to get you to the screen where you choose the language? Can you proceed?

Hello,

I have a problem. Here is the situation. I started out with a two 500 gig raid striped hdd running windows 7. I recently acquired a 1tb wd black hdd and installed a fresh copy of win7 on that while the previous RAID setup was still active so I could easily copy files over to the 1tb as needed. The 1tb drive is also part of the RAID as a non-member disk.

The problem I am having is that without the original hdd's, windows will not boot on the 1tb hdd alone. It seems as though the boot information is all on the striped setup. When they are active, I have a choice to select the original os on the striped hdd, or the new one on the 1tb. I ran windows repair with the 1tb hdd alone and it said there was no system disk, but said it repaired, yet it still asks me to insert valid boot media in bios.

Anyone know how to make my 1tb drive bootable without the RAID drives present?

All this because he doesn't have a battery anymore? On my other Notebook from Hp, I use it connected to the power directly.

After it finished, I had a blinking cursor and nothing else. So, I did a real format (using KillDisk) on the C partition and, again, installed Win7. This time it will boot into Win7, but I get no options for selecting what partition to boot into. So... I tried the following:

I can still boot into Windows 7 if I choose that option. What do I do now?

If i am reading this post correctly you did a format on your C: drive? Where your XP was located?? So it removed your XP install and now you only have Win 7.

Hello, sorry for my english but This forum is probably the last thing that could help me.
I rode other topics about this problem. When I start computer it stops right before "Starting Windows" and there is only a black screen. I cant start windows any way.
So i put a disc with windows and try to repair but it said: "there is no problem with windows starting"
Than I started a console and try to insert c: and then
bootrec /fixmbr and fixboot
but fixboot doesn't work - I dont remember literally but it said something like: there is no filesystem/wrong filesystem

when i try to scanos it say that there is 0 operating systems.

Then I tried to run gparted to flag a disc, but it showed me different partitions configuration then ive got on windows - there is no windows disc!

oo.. i tried also to build BCD but when i had to put command: cd boot it said there is no comand like that

Please help me... I dont want to make a format...
Are there any different ways of fix it?
Sorry sorry from my english

Does the HD register in BIOS setup? Is it set first to boot in BIOS setup, after CD/DVD drive? Try booting HD maker's diagnostic/repair CD to run extended scan: HD Diagnostic

Check for infection by installing, updating and running full scan with Malwarebytes in Safe Mode with networking. If no Safe Mode then download, burn to CD or write to flash stick, boot and run a full scan with Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.

Boot back into the DVD REpair console or Repair CD to see if it discovers an installation to repair. If not, click through to Recovery Tools list to open command Prompt, type bootrec /fixboot and bootrec /fixmbr to see if it will now show an installation to repair. Do not change the drive letter as you say you did. If it now finds an installation to repair run Startup Repair repeatedly regardless of its finding at first. Next try System Restore from the Repair tools list, then using Command Line SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Next boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD to see if the 100mb System Rserved partition (preferred) or Win7 partition are still marked Active. If not, rightlick to Modify>Set to Active, then highlight the HD, from Disk tab select "Rebuild MBR", apply steps, reboot to see if it will start. You can also Explore the partitions to see if your files are intact; if so the OS should be reparable unless you damaged it with previous repair attempts.

I get this message when booting up - 'Cannot set the code page(s) in Display. Sys.' Computer appears to be running OK though. What does this mean, will it give me problems and how to I put it right? Thanks.

If you have the xp cd insert it and follow the onscreen commands until you get the option to enter the repair console. Do so then select the ssystem to be repaired and the admin password. Then type fixboot and when complete remove the cd then reboot.

So i recently had my computer give me the "blue screen of death" and decided to reinstall windows xp. After doing so, and installing various updates, i kept getting error messages and when i tried to boot without the CD i would give me the "boot fail" screen and i would have to instert the disk. I reinstalled windows, but it still fails to boot without the CD, but the error messages are all gone. This computer was built by a good friend, and wasnt purchased from a store but i am sure everything inside is seated correctly. I have two hard drives "c:" and "d:". "c:" is the one with the OS on it, and d is where everything else goes. right now, i am installing service pack 3, and i hope that solves the problem. SOMEONE HELP!

Hi all,
 
 
I just had this happen to be after running CCleaner.
 
 
I ran the diagnostic during boot and found those nice little red letters on the screen: BIOHD3
 
Afterwards, I tried to directly boot the hard drive and went right into normal start up.

Hi, I know there have been numerous threads on this, but each case is slightly different, not to mention that I've tried most of solutions described there and they didn't work. I reinstalled Windows 8 system on my Y580 (using OneKey Recovery). Worked ok after. Then I proceeded to apply all the system updates from Windows Update and some driver updates. After that I restarted the laptop to apply changes and the system stopped booting. The HDD is detected. The boot menu at the beginning only had EFI Network 0 for IPv4 and EFI Network 0 for IPv6 and both failed boot. Later the Windows Boot manager appeared at the top but it also fails each time. After the failed boot it then proceeds to show the OneKey Recovery screen again. When I use it, it works, but after reinstallation it's the same - failed boot and OneKey recovery. When I use a bootable USB installation of Win 8.1 (there's none for Win 8 apparently) and try to repair/reinstall etc. that way, I get a message that the disk where Windows is installed is blocked. Any suggestions?

I have two HDDs. For the sake of argument, C: is my primary one and D: is my reserve.

C: is now failing to boot completely, though I can access it fine when booting from D: (which I am currently doing).

Symptoms:

Recently, booting C: has gone as follows:
POST Screen
Windows loading bar
Black screen
Mouse cursor
Restart
Unplugging the computer for a while HAD fixed this, but didn't one time, so I opened it up and moved that little connector between the three pegs (I believe it's resetting the ROM) and took out and put back in the MOBO battery.

Since then, C: has failed to boot altogether, not even getting to the "Windows is Loading" screen.

I can access all of C: when booted from D:. Windows folders are present and I can load exe's off it (like Firefox right now)

Attempted Fixes

Unplugging
BIOS reset, boot sequence, time/date etc. all corrected
Doing the same thing again on the MOBO
System repair off the install disk
Bootrec.exe off the install disk
Virus scan off D:
Chkdsk off D:

Specs

C: - 250GB Maxtor SATA
D: - 70GB Hitachi SATA
MOBO - MSI G31TM-P35
GFX - Nvidia GeForce 8600GT (1GB)

Hi, Whenever i boot my computer, a screen will come up saying " Warning system boot fail!" and will list my 2 entries "primary master ide : None" and "master slave ide : None". Under this it lists my 3 devices in sata 1st being my primary hdd, 2nd being my cd rom and 3rd being my secondary hd.

Now all this has started since i installed a new graphics card onto my system, since then i have done a clean install of windows, updated graphics drivers and rummaged around bios to no avail. Please can someone help me.

Forgot to mention it gives the option to press F1 to go on regardless, but pc doesn't seem as stable as usual.

A:System Boot Fail

If you've done a clean install, then most of the options I would suggest here don't apply as that would have resolved most issues including most boot issues. Normally I would suggest a Startup Repair and then bootrec.exe to reset the boot configuration - back to the original if necessary - but both of those are essentially covered with a clean boot.

I suggest you check for updates to your BIOS (from your computer manufacturer) and install them. In fact, do so even if they are the same version as there may be some corruption or some other problem and a fresh copy may solve the problem. Then triple-check the settings to make sure that everything is configured properly because this sounds very much like a BIOS problem of some sort (even though you say it started with the new graphics card). Be sure to check any graphics-related BIOS settings (if any) as the new card may possibly require some changes.

If that doesn't work, do you still have the old graphics card and does it work (or a card from another computer you can borrow for testing)? Try replacing the current graphics card with the original or other (and change the drivers of course) and see if the problem goes away. If so, you may want to confirm that the new graphics card is compatible with your system (the version of Vista you are using, the motherboard into which it is inserted, any BIOS graphics settings, and everything else) and that it is not defective (though I don't understand how even then it would cause ...

I'll try to make sense of this to you. My computer has been working great until last night. Today, it bricked on me.
Last night and until a out noon today, I was seeing occasional corruption of the image on screen (strange blocking/pixellation like a bad hd tv picture). I started getting locking-up freezes, which I could sort of unfreeze with ctrl-alt-del. This happened frequently while browsing the net las night (oddly games worked fine).
Today at one point the whole image started flickering/fluctuating up and down and then the image scrambled totally and was locked-up, so I hard reset.
Upon restart, bootup fails. Chkdsk, memory scan (from startup repAir and the installation disk), image and system recovery fail. When I read the detailed results from start up recovery, it tells me that no drive is present.
So, did the drive fail, or maybe it came unplugged inside the tower (unlikely bc the tower hasnt moved). Or, did intel smart response technology screw up and the cache is screwed and it's messing up the primary drive it accelerates? Windows 7 64-bit OS on z68 mobo with 64gb SSd accelerating 500gb primary.
Any insight is VEry greatly appreciated, as I'm stuck working off my iPod touch for troubleshooting.

A:Windows 7 boot fail

Update: I just tried again to boot into safe mode.
After displaying the names of some files that loaded, the system rebooted itself.
The last file that says "loaded" is classpnp.sys (i think that's what it said). Once that sits idle for a few seconds, a blue screen pops up very briefly that I cannot read.

I currectly trying to fix a presitant problem on my computer. Often when i boot up my computer, it stops completely just before checking which drive to find the boot record. I reset with ctrl-alt-del and then it repeats and just freezes at the same place. If i shut it down for a 5 mins and then turn it back on it will boot correctly by searching the floppy,cdrom, then harddrive for boot record.

I just formatted my computer and this problem is even more occuring. Does my computer need a bios reset or update?
