Paragon Hard disc Crasher

  juniorsplat 16:49 24 Feb 2007

I recently bought a acer 5100 laptop and for some reason the Hard drive came with a partition. One partition had files in and the other was empty. Using the Paragon Partition manager I attepted to merge these two partitions - a safer way I thought than just deleting one and hoping for the best. When I applied settings something was using the C:/ drive so I did it on boot up. During this procees, after copying files from one to the other, it crashed during "creating a partition". Now, when I turn on the laptop it will not boot into windows and just displays a blank screen.
As the computer is new I have not changed much, so do not mind loosing any settings.
Am happy to give any more details if necessary.

Time to use your recovery disc.

I couldn't boot anything from the discs I was made to burn.

I think you have either corrupted or deleted Windows and drivers and need a complete reinstal.Perhaps see if Acer can help.

I have had bad experiences with acer and would prefer to leave them out if possible?

Will it be possible to use a different OS?

The disks that you burned are they recovery discs? What happens when you run them, does the drive try to read them?

Had to choose to boot from disc from boot menu.

Thanks for your help.
