acer laptop wont start up

  westgolf 13:41 30 Jun 2009

Hi everyone, please help. 4 month old laptop was perfect. Now wont start windows , attempts own diagnostics & says - see your administrator. Cant get the pc to start in safe mode (it seems f12 is disabled), also says - no restore points have been made (but they have) ? any ideas please ? Thanx to all.

hi there,if its playing up after 4 months i should return it & ask for your money back or replacement,where did you get it from.

op system?

Vista Press F8 during boot and follow the prompts to do a repair or a factory reset.

Would it say no restore points if it wasn't loading windows ?

Definitely try a reinstall as Fruit Bat suggests. On mine it's ALT and F10 you press when the Acer splash screen appears. What model is it ?
