[QUOTE=mciahel;2153847]Hi,are there any errors in device manager?
Have you already tried to boot off a bootable CD? Please note you’ll have to either change the boot priority in BIOS or invoke a “one-time” bootmenu.
A Windows install disc required “any key” to be pressed, so watch the screen carefully.
I personally prefer a Linux Live CD for such diagnostic purpose.
Is there any diagnostic tool for your notebook available? I know, such exists for Dell computers.
If you still can’t boot, then there might be something wrong with the motherboard or the drive connectors.
My old laptop had this problem. Acer seems like it has the most problems with this, turns out the motherboard was bad, had it replaced, same thing happened, even with a new drive, they swapped the QSI drive with a Pioneer, and the Pioneer stopped reading CDs yet it worked fine in my friends laptop
