  1. Hi All,
    Im new user to TechSpot and hope i can get a solution here.
    Im Uditha and I bought a ACER Aspire M1640 System recently.
    And installed XP on it and I used the system for 2 weeks with XP(Installed with Nvidia drivers externally with Floppy DD).
    After 2 weeks time when i try to start my PC, it got stucked in the boot screen for long time, Then I re-started it in safemode and restored the system and restarted, but the problem exists.

    Then I tried to install Vista home edition, but that installation also starts and stucked in halfway.
    Then i tried to install XP again. same problem.
    Finally anyhow I was able to install XP(after some re-start attempts)
    But Still the booting problem there.But it boots in safemode.
    Some times during the boot process in normal mode, it re-starts but not booting in to.
    Last known configuration also not working.

    Pls give me instructions.
    Will it be a RAM issue?
    or any viruses attacked to BIOS??

    Help me.

    Hmmm I wonder, are you running Service Pack 3 for XP? Some people are reporting things like this where it no longer boots after installing SP3.
