PostSubject: My Computer Prob ((PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN))   Tue Feb 06, 2007 2:48 am

This was the message I sent to Wayne:-

Quote :
Hey Wayne,

I was wondering if you could talk to Gary about my computer. I am going to try to get it mended today, but if I have to pay 200 for it, I wont do it. I will try and explain all that is wrong with it, so here goes:-

1) Worked fine in the morning closed the lid, putting it into Hibernation.
2) Mysteriously comes on by itself on the bus, I hold the power button and turn it off.
3) When I get home to use it, the first Acer screen comes up, then the screen goes totally black.
4) If you wait for 15 minutes, it comes up saying that a file named like /config is missing, my own belief is that this is very important. It also says to use the discs ((Which I don't have)) or to use manual reboot with alt+F10.
5) When I do alt+F10, it comes up with a menu asking if I want the entire thing cleaned and re-installed.
6) I go through this and it says it fails.
7) Now when I turn on my computer, the acer logo comes up then its says something like NB something something, can not be found, press any key to reboot.
Cool When I press a key, this does not happen.
9) Every time I try to repeat steps 5-8 it does the same thing.

HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TH

I hope I can get this fixed.... for my addictions sake.

TH

Hey, i can fix it! joke, lol. Well this is worth a try. On ebay they sell various backup CD's for laptops and what not. Go to ebay.co.uk and search for you laptop's name like for example "ACER TRAVELMATE 2420 LAPTOP RESTORE DISK RECOVERY CD" CLick Here they cost like around a tenner. Its worth a try, it worked for a computer I was fixing a while back.

Laters!

P.S. (If their going to charge you 200 to fix it your better off buying a new one for 100 more)

With recovery disk it will be the same as Reconfiguring the whole LT. So my sugestion is to Get your Windows and reformat all the HDD. Only problem and it is that you will loose everything, same thing happens in recovery i guess. I had one long ago and everytime I used recovery, computer was totally cleaned (don't know if it's the same now). But better to reformat and start fresh. Also you will have to install MxO Game and wait for the whole thing to patch. Hope you come online soon bro.

Sounds to me like you had a touch of disk corruption. A few months ago I bought myself a piece of software called Partition Doctor after I managed to corrupt my partition during an install.

Pity you have to spend over fifty quid to get it checked out, no doubt they are just going to start your machine with a boot disk and do a scandsk.

The alternative is re-installing a fresh copy of Windows et al and loosing all the data, but hopefully it doesn't come to that or at least it shouldn't if the repair shop knows what its doing!

By the way, I would have done it for free Smile

Rung the dude up and he said I should get it today. So it will take maybe an hour to patch MxO, I'll download Vent first, I missed you guys on that. Then as I am installing I'll talk to you guys. Then I will be on MxO.

The return of TheHidden01 is soon to be.

We will see. Sarah is getting there but still needs work, I will show you some tips.

On the main MxO forums I been getting lots of thumbs up, and one said I was THE best MA... sorry I sound big headed but it makes me cry Very Happy

I will make sure that EVERY DRAGOON is like that.
