I have an acer all on one and a few days ago it *** off all by itaelf and when it came back on it said reboot and aelct boot device or.reboot and insert boot.media. I figured the hard drive was bad so I.put a Jew one.on now when.I turn it on the acer screen comes up then it goes to the last known good configuration or safe mode or start windows normally screen. No matter what I select it starts to boot up.but right after the acer screen it goes eight back to the safe mode or last known config I need to get this computer going again. I took the hard drive to my other desktop and installed xp on it. It starts Ho fine ok my desktop but won't start up on this computer. Can I not go from 7 back down to xp.
More aboutacer problem
You CANNOT install xp on ANOTHER computer then put back in the hard drive and expect it to work....it WONT...NOT EVER...
The operating system HAS to be installed on the computer its going to boot from...
All the best Brett
Ya i figured that out it won't install on this computer. It starts up but then it goes to the blue screen of death so the only thing.I can think.of is the motherboard is shot
