Hi at all!

First apologize for my bad english .. I have a problem with my notebook Acer, yesterday I try to boot it, after one year that I don't use it. The screen goes immediately white and press all of the key seems to be useless. If I connect it to an external monitor I can see that Windows goes to a crash black error:


Windows failed to start.

A recent hardware of software change might be the cause.

To fix the problem:

1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart computer.

2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next"

3. Click "Repair your computer."


If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance. File: \Windows\system32\config\system Status: 0xc000000f Info: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing, or corrupt.


I try to reboot the notebook starting from cd (Windows Seven pro) but if I try to format the HD or to repair the installation after two minutes of work the monitor's screen from white comes black, and the external monitor going to sleep.. Pressing all of the key is useless, and is also useless try to turn of the pc with the ac botton..

I try yo change HD, but the result is the same..

Somebody can help me please?

Thank you very much!

Maybe it has something to do with the long time between using it.

Try to first fully charge the laptop and then retry

If charging won;t succeed, remove the battery pack and use mains power and retry. In that case your battery may be broken.

If you have an installation OR a recovery disk, boot from that disk.

Then choose to open a recovery console.

Enter the following command:

   chkdsk /r c:

to repair your harddisk.

Then try to restart.


If you do not have such a disk, download an iso file here http://techverse.net/download-windows-7-iso-x86-x64-microsofts-official-servers/ and burn that to cd or dvd. Check for the correct (32 or 64 bit) version and language.

I had an Acer with the Same/Similar problem. This fix worked for me.

Use this with caution and USE AT OWN RISK


Solve White Screen of the Death in Acer Laptops Video NOT my work.





I did NOT do this I paid a pc Tech to do it.
