Computer Won't boot at all RRS feed

  • Question

  • It's an Acer Aspire 5100 with factory loaded Vista updated with SP1. Because of a problem with an Acer loaded program. I was reinstalling Vista from the Recovery Disk and part way through there was a power failure. Now, when I try to boot, all I get is a flashing dash in the upper left hand corner of the screen. It will no longer boot from the recovery disk nor will it respond to the Alt F10 Acer access code. How can I get this machine into a position that I can reinstall Vista?

  • Hi bobhjon, thanks for the post. Based on the current situation, if the computer cannot boot at all, we are not able to reinstall the system. I recommend you contact with computer manufacturer for repair or replacement.
