    I do have a windows xp disc can i try to install it on to this laptop again ???
  11. OK, we can try something else first. We're not sure if that hard disk is working or not.

    See if you can get into the Acer eRecovery Management. Use Alt + F10 at power on.

    got into acer recovery with power on and its doing something
  14. OK, choose the Restore Button which should take you to the restore / recovery page.

    And you'll want to try a Restore from factory default image.

    does the acer thing take a while? time left 2min etc
  16. I have no idea how long it will take. It won't be quick - unless it fails because the hard disk is bad.
  17. thanks can it take ages like days????

    im scarred ive broke it more??
  18. Probably hours instead of days? Maybe days if you need to order a new part.
    You don't even know right now if it can be fixed because the hard drive might be bad.
    It will take - - what it takes.

    sorry to drive you mad shouldnt the time elapsed box be going down on the countdown thing or sholud i start it again
  20. You're doing the Restore from factory default image now?
