My Ace Aspire One won't start up.

Hello,

When I start up my netbook, it say's if I want to run it in safe mode, because it didn't properly shutdown last time, and when I go in safe mode, or normal mode I get the Blue screen of Death for about 0,1seconds, it's like a flash, and than my netbook restarts... It's windows XP btw..

    The Aspire one does not have a CD drive, I believe, so unless you have a bootable iso windows flash drive, and the acer can boot from CD, your only option is restore to factory settings, and lose all but the OS.

    How do I restore to factory settings? I don't care about the files on this PC. Thanks.

    Are you pressing alt/f10 at the acer splash screen ? Press them immediately.
