Have you tried booting in Safe Mode?

by OH Smeg In reply to Acer Laptop computer

If not press and hold the F8 Key when the Acer Logo Appears till you get a White on Black Screen. Then using the Arrow Keys highlight the Safe Mode option and press Enter.

If that doesn't work post back.

So the keyboard works? You can SEE the Safe Mode screen?

by Ron K. In reply to Safe mode

When the power comes on hit the CD/DVD tray button. I've never had one not open before the boot cycle 'completes'. You may be the first.

You've never said, can you enter the BIOS?

You need to enter the BIOS here

by OH Smeg In reply to Safe mode

And reset the Boot Order to the Optical Drive Before the HDD and Remember to save the changes as you exit the BIOS.

That way you can use the Vista Install DVD to repair the Windows Install.
