i have an acer 5517 laptop the i have a problem when booting i have restored the default boot settings, tried the alt+f10, and also a few other random thing and have not gotten very far a fixing it.
i get one of two screen
i dont have a recovery cd. i have tried to order one from acer once before, but they had an error in the ordering system they never charged me or shipped my recovery disc.
i currently have an extra hard drive i scavenged from an acer 5515 with vista. i system restored and installed new drivers
on to make sure the laptop its self has no problems
i have access to 3 other computers if that would help me
one xp, one vista, and one is 7
using my desktop ( XP based) i hooked up the hard drive via the second sata connections and could see all the partitions are on the origanal hard drive with windows 7
I need to figure out a way to recover the os to a working condition i need no data off the hard drive. please help as i try to be as specific and detailed as possible to help you help me.
also thank you in advance!!!!
