acer laptop. blue screen, then no bootable device error message.this model has no cd/dvd drive...so what to do about seeing if i still even have an operating system?
Computer OS: Windows XPBrowser: IE
tried a boot flash drive (few days ago), and when docs "c:" showed up, there were no files/file folders showing. don't know if have any operating system, and don't know how to load operating system (xp) since the laptop didn't come with any CD for xp. code for xp on back of laptop...but useless unless i can get os running.
What is the make / model of the acer?
Acer Aspire One.
Ok is there a model # XXXXX product number anywhere on the underside?
also, on sticker on back, it reads: aspire one D150-1577
i'd be willing to do a formatting and reloading of windows xp (wasn't much on the laptop so don't mind starting over), but this doesn't have cd drive and i don't have a flash drive that would facilitiate booting and loading xp just yet.
Ok that's an AOD150.
You can restore the OS from the "hidden drive".
