Specs: Windows 7, 2ghz/1gb
Hi, upgraded a friends acer 5315 from windows vista home basic to windows 7 ultimate, everything seemed ok until I restarted, then after the acer screen, all I get is a black screen. Don't have the recovery discs, and even when I decided to boot from CD and install windows XP, I receive the message no Hard Disk found in your device.

I can't even tell my friend what has happened, so plz help me.

Regards,

Tobi Babs

get a repair cd from here

if you didnt delete the hidden partition you should be able to do a factory restore, reboot and tap the F9 key, it should take you to the restore options.


you will also need to download the driver cd from the manufacturer to install the sata drivers and other proprietry drivers needed to run the machine.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

I would keep pushing F8 when you power on the laptop, you want "Safe Mode with Networking", safe mode uses a basic graphic adapter which hopefully gives you a screen in safe mode. Then go online to the manufacturer and see if they have an updated driver for windows 7;)
