Solved How do i get my acer aspire 5336-2524 to load windows?

Specs: Windows 7
It comes on, but acts like it's bogged down....windows 7 logo comes on the screen and fades in and out, light is on and flashes every once in a while on top next to on button but won't load windows. Can't get to task mgr. When I go to F2 to bios and boot order, what order should it be in? I do not want to lose all pics and files by resetting.

✔ Best Answer
Download a Linux disk (an ISO) and boot with that. It will load into RAM only (do NOT op to actually install it). It will boot into a windows style desktop; from where you can locate the hard drive, and your files; which then copy to external storage (DVD at least). If you have an external hard drive then copy to that as well. Ideally make two sets of DVDs' check both are truly accessible before you proceed to resolve the current windows problems.

A factory reset/restore "will' wipe all your personal files; so the above routine is wise to do first...

ubuntu.com is one place to find an ISO; which download and burn to a DVD; boot with that DVD.

There are other variants too and likely some of the other regulars here will advise where they are.

Once you have safeguarded your files, set about resolving the problem with windows.

Safe-mode - does that work (press F8 as system boots up)?

Boot order: CD/DVD first, then hard drive.
