Aspire 5536
April 14, 2010 at 11:00:16
Specs: Windows Vista
Laptop only 6 months old. When I switch on it shows the ACER logo then says 'Error loading operating system' and I cannot do anything more in it. Have tried f10 when logo on screen. It says 'windows loading files' then shows me an arrow cursor, then says 'please wait for a moment'........and I wait and wait and wait but nothing happens. No CDs or memory sticks plugged in. Help!!!!

Thanks Mavis. I have tried tapping F8. After a few taps it just bleeps then I get the same error message. Someone suggested pushing DEL......same effect. Same thing happens with F12

Thanks everyone. I gave up after hours on online chat to 'on the spot IT' and took it back to the shop. Diagnosed as a hard drive fault and gone off for repair.
