  1. I used some boot 'n' nuke software on one of my old computers and now when i start it up it says that i have no operating system... (not the problem)

    I also says that i need to insert an ASR disc :( (automated system recovery) but i do not know how to get one?

    Is there a website i could go to or must i buy one of these?

    Thank You.

    Is your system a Dell/Gateway or something like that?

    Do you have a windows CD, and have you tried booting your computer with it in?

    Are you able to get into Bios?

    I use windows XP proffesional edition on my Acer laptop, well the problem is i lost all of my copyright XP stuff... long story.

    So i booted up with a cracked copy of win XP pro and it asked me for the ASR... don't know if i have helped you source the problem anymore! :bounce: , but i also do not use dell/gateway either :( .

    Thank for the welcome message...

    Sounds like you need to contact ACER and get a boot disk with all your drivers ( you may be able to download this from their site), as well as a new (legal) copy of windows XP.

    You shouldn`t be using an illegal copy of Windows.

    Techspot does not condone piracy

    BTW. Thankyou for your swear ridden email. Consider yourself banned.
