Would never buy an acer again.
For others who may have the same problem here is the error during boooting.
For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet Controller PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting
Sorry to say, no offence, but unfortunately some computer users are newbs and freak out at every little problem from unpopular manufacturer.
Acer laptops are just like any other laptops, prone to the problems of any other manufacturer. Lets all face it, they all go to the same parts manufacturer to have the same components, mainly what you pay your extras for are the BRANDING, SUPPORT offered by the different companies and CUSTOMIZED settings and software. I have worked with many Acers and I found many generic drivers which work for other brands of laptops which would show us how they all use basically the same parts, just have the manufacturer place their logo and name of the software.
As for problems, look at the big Dell issue with a whole line of laptops with that Battery and Charger issue. Hp’s demon was the pages and pages of recalled serial numbers for laptops with bad NETWORK CARDS which were causing the mainboards to fail. Toshiba had its battery issues as well when it recalled laptops too.
All because as I said before “they all use basically the same parts” so some manufacturer of batteries dropped the ball.
I think Dell is drastically over priced for no reason, HP had too many swing and misses with their boards (but when you get a good one YOU GET A REAL GOOD ONE), Toshiba now is into the same mass production so anything can go wrong (but hey, they still have good technology like the flip over touchscreen) and finally Acer has its CHEAP laptops as all the other companies do, where they but the low rated parts and the moderate to expensive ones where they put quality stuff. So a expensive dell, may have the same as a Acer which costs 100 or so dollars less, doesn’t mean the Dell is better because of price you mainly pay for Brand and Service. Check the specs compare prices and make your decision. Some people need to change their stance on this “higher price mean it is better” thing, that’s how some companies know they can survive on name instead of quality these days.
