Acer Aspire 5738Z Wins 7. Will start with blue screen with white writing saying dumping physical memory and then just shuts down. Go to safe mode and desktop shows but before I am able to go into start menu it closes down again. No recovery disks came with it.
Hi jim63 its difficult to do repair when you cant start the darn thing. click here If you can find the answer to your problem on the link above and a repair that can be loaded onto a DVD etc. and get a mate to down load it on his PC then you have a half a chance. Sorry I cant be of more help.
Usually with windows 7, you have to put in your windows disc to boot from and click "repair" when prompted and then choose your recovery option from the list. This doesn't mean its recovering from the disc, it just needs the options from it to get started.
If no disk then
1. Power on the machine. 2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the “Alt” key and press the “F10” key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery. 3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click “Restore to Factory Default Settings” 4. Click “OK” to continue. 5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes). 6. Once eRecovery has run, press “OK” to reboot unit.
***This will erase all your unsaved data!***
1. Reboot, and press F8. 2. Select Repair. 3. Select Reinstall Windows and follow prompts.
