If your computer is asking for a bootable disk drive on startup, it typically indicates drive failure and your harddrive needs replacement. Sorry for the badnews.

SOURCE: acer asire 5920 wont boot up cant get to windows

For the psswords i can recomend to reset them from BIOS but to do that you must first know them. The problem with recovery disks is solvable if you boot from an XP disc and format the C: partition in NTFS file sistem and when it starts copying files to install the windows stop the installation ( F3 or press the power button for more than 4 seconds.. don't worry you will not sustain disk damage... done it myself with the same notebook for a dozen times ) After formatting the partition C: try recovery again and it will work.
NOTE: for the formatting of the partition you must set the HDD mode from AHCI to ATA witch permits the XP setup utility to "see" the HDD. If it is set in AHCI mode the setup utility for windows XP will not detect youre HDD

My computer is asking for a boot disc?


It is asking for a boot disk because it cannot find a bootable device...in other words, your hard drive's boot sector is likely damaged.

you will need a Windows disk for your OS to repair this.

Restore my acer aspire 5742 back to factory settings w/out disk


Step 1 Open the Windows Start menu by clicking on the icon in the lower left corner of your desktop.
Step 2 Click "All Programs," then the "Acer" folder.
Step 3 Select "Acer eRecovery Management" to open the utility. If a Windows prompt asks for permission to run the program, click "Yes."
Step 4 Click the "Restore" button in the pane on the left side of the program window.
Step 5 Click "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults."
Step 6 Select the "Yes" option in the dialog box that asks you to confirm the action, and click "Start."
Step 7 Click "OK" in the second confirmation dialog box to restart the computer.
Step 8 Click "Next" in the warning window that appears after the computer reboots. This confirms that you realize restoring the computer deletes any data stored on your hard drive.
Step 9 Click "Next" again in the Restore Destination window, and click "OK" in the popup that gives you one last warning about deleting your data. The restoration process will begin.
Step 10 Click "OK" when the utility lets you know that the restoration is complete. The computer will restart, and Windows will finish the recovery process.

Upon startup before anything else happens (except asking me if I want to press f2 for setup) my aspire one netbook says: For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller... v1.0.0.5(1/22/09) check cable...


Press F2 and enter setup as it looks like your device is set to boot from the network instead of your C drive. You can change the boot order in the setup.

My laptop does not want to boot, it ask a bootable disk, I created one with ISO image, when I insert that cd, it asked me to press any key, and if a press any key it will brought me to many option...


For that you need to set first bootable device as cd/dvd rom in bios. When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALt+F2 key to enter in bios then go to boot menu and set first boot device priority as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit from bios then it boot with bootable disk. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
