Hi,

I'm having some trouble with my acer aspire one 532h netbook. When i switch it on it goes through a " startup repair is checking your system for problems " then after a few seconds i have two boxes that pop up. The top box being, startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically. Sending more information can help microsoft create solutions. Then i get two options, send information about this problem ( recommended ) or don't send.

The box below says..

Windows cannot repair this computer automatically

If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer. If you continue to see tis message, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Click finish to exit and shut down your computer.


The netbook was bought just for music when on travels ( train and such ) and never used on the internet but was set up to be. So im really unsure if this is caused by a virus as i have a younger sister ( 14 year old ) so she could of used it and is not saying..

Ive tried a few different things, tapping Alt & F10 together when loading but that just makes it freeze and gives a beeping noise. Ive also tried holding Clt and tapping F10 and that brings up a page called edit boot options, as seen below..

" edit boot options "

Edit windows boot option for: windows 7

path: \windows\system32\winload.exe

partition: 3
hard disk: b2a75dea

[ /NOEXEUTE=OPPTIN IN/MINT ]


Ive also tried the disable D2D and enable D2D well doing the following above but does the same. From start up using the F8 gives a few modes that include booting in safe mode, none of them work, it all goes to the start up repair.

There's not much on the netbook, so i really don't mind losing anything on it to get it back working

Many thanks in advance

Alt+F10 is what you need to use to get into the recovery process. If that doesn't work then it's possible the hard drive (SSD?) or memory is defective.

Is it still under warranty? If so contact Acer and have them fix it. Netbooks are nice but not having an optical drive can be a PITA at times as it makes repair difficult.

When i do the Alt+F10 it just stays on a black screen with a little - in the top left hand corner..

Sadly the warranty has run out, but it's hardly ever been used the netbook, my daily use is a a acer predator g7750, the netbook was just something i used when travelling to places on the train or such.

I'm really unsure what to do now. Is there anyway i can tell which one it could be? Also is it easy to replace the hard drive or memory on them?..


Many thanks for the reply

* Edited *

Right ive decided to replace them all lol, so ive took my hard drive out. It's a western digital 160GB WD1600BEVT 2.5".. I would really like to upgrade to a better and bigger hard drive and memory if possible? Just struggling to find the right stuff, mainly the bigger hard drive. I have found & bought the 2GB ram/memory..

Any links or names would be much appreciated

Many thanks

dan

Do you really need a larger hard drive for a Netbook? If that's what you want I would go with one that is 7200 RPM instead of 5400 RPM, you'll see a noticeable performance improvement. Even better would be a SSD (Solid State Drive).

Yeah i was thinking the same after. I'm going to upgrade it to 2GB and just buy the same hard drive for the time being. The only reason i asked was that the netbook hasn't really been used so it's more or less brand new so for it to give in so easy seemed like upgrading both could of been a better choice in the long run, but we'll see how it goes.

But many thanks for all your help, yesterday felt like i was never going to get it back running. I was close to throwing it out and buying a new one, so you've saved me a few pound :thumbsup:

Do get a 7200RPM drive if you can as it will make a big difference. Not as much as an SSD would but still very noticeable.
