I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
I am trying to find out the best place to get a replacement battery. Is it best to just take it back to where I bought it to make sure it is the correct one ? TYIAhttp://community.acer.com/t5/Legacy-Laptops-and-Netbooks/I-have-an-Acer-Aspire-5517-5689/td-p/460403

Hey guys I m in some need of some advice I have no idea what s going with this laptop and new Not Acer posting, Aspire 5517 mobo. - it s supposed to be finished today The laptop was brought to Acer Aspire 5517 - Not posting, new mobo. me to fix about a month ago It would power on but would not post and then the fan would stop spinning The hard drive spins audibly and the laptop stays powered on I swapped out all the normal parts that you can for a laptop including the hard drive and ram I also swapped out the processor Nothing would fix the problem I concluded that it must be the motherboard The guy needed his data so I hooked his hard drive up to my computer which caused my computer to stop posting I got my PC to boot up again only for it to stop working and the motherboard went bad which I had to replace It may or may not have been caused from his hard drive but it seems like a big coincidence to me So I ordered a working mobo on eBay which took forever to get here Now that it s here and I ve installed it it s doing the same thing as before When I turn it on now the screen quot flashes quot for a second right after I let go of the power button It looks more like the screen is just receiving power because there is no color I can t remember if it was doing that before or not I m officially stumped The only thing I can think is that his hard drive is somehow making motherboards go bad His original my desktop and now this new one but I feel like that is too far fetched and I could be missing something basic I ve checked all the connections tried swapping parts on the new board and it s just not working If you guys can think of anything please let me know Thanks -Avidist Jacob UPDATE Before the new motherboard had been ordered and I was still troubleshooting the other one I tried using an external monitor It would not post Before posting this I d forgotten to try that and after trying it it DOES post to an external monitor but not to the laptop screen I guess when the motherboard went bad the screen went bad as well There s not much else I can do I guess Any ideas would still be appreciated nbsphttps://forums.techguy.org/threads/acer-aspire-5517-not-posting-new-mobo.1069578/
Alright hopefully someone here can help me Today I got my brand new Acer Aspire Everything is perfectly fine except for one tiny insanely annoying thing When I go to scroll by actually moving the scrollbar on the screen the cursor does not let go immediately after I lift my finger to do something else So if I scroll down a bit and move the cursor to click on something RIGHT after it drags the page with it as if I still had a hold on the scroll bar If Problem Scrolling acer 5517 on with aspire I scroll wait a second and then go it's fine But who wants to do that Looking at the scrollbar when I click it highlights blue as I scroll and even after I let go until it decides it's no longer stuck to my mouse This drag-lock problem does not seem to apply to anything else I can drag around windows or folders with no sticking I dug through the touchpad settings and there doesn't seem to be anything that applies to scrolling only I have an ALPS touchpad driver I asked about this on Yahoo Answers and someone said it was probably a driver problem and to use the driver updater I did this and it updated and had me restart After that the scrolling problem was fixed but I couldn't use the scrolling part of the touchpad I like to use both I looked back into the mouse settings and it seemed to think I ONLY had a mouse and all of the touchpad related settings were gone so I put the old driver back on and my drag lock problem persists Has anyone else had this problem Because updating the driver fixed the first problem I am under the impression it's a driver issue but I could be wrong Any settings somewhere I missed that can fix this Any other drivers I can download Thanks -Seedlet
but I couldn't use the scrolling part of the touchpad
Maybe the scrolling area of the touchpad was set to very narrow. There is usually a setting where you can drag the scrolling area to a wider setting.

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5517 laptop, and it won't stay on. I let it charge for 3 hours, and turn it on.It will go to the first boot screen where you have the F10 or F12 options, and then it will just turn off. It turns off as if the battery was just removed from it. Other days, it will turn on, and work great. And, sometimes it will turn on, then work for a while, then turn off, as if the battery were removed from it once again. I have tested the battery, and charger, they both work fine, and the battery holds a charge. Any ideas on what might be going on?
Hi and welcome to TSF,
Does the same happen when it is plugged into the mains?
I am working with backing up my computer and I am dazzled by all the dvd R and RW and minus and plus etc. My dvd drive is listed like this: DVD +or - RW (+ or - DL)/DVD Ram. I am probably on the wrong board but I couldn't get on the "internal hardware" forum.
I have no idea what all this means. All I know is that DVD+RW seems to work. The clerk told me that I had better be sure what my dvd drive uses. Thanks.

It sounds like your computer is trying to boot from network.
The first thing I'd probably check is your BIOS setup under Lannet and disabled it.
It may be trying to look for a network drive before starting from your local devices.
Is the 15'' screen from an Acer Aspire 5517 the exact same item found in a 15'' Acer 5742,I would like to swap in the 5517's screen.If not,where would one search for a new replacement screen for a 5742 in NorthAmerica (Canada)
Looks like they may be close if the cables are the same. Here's a new LCD Panel:
Hello, my laptop is not coming on, well the screen.
I tried taking out the battery, unplugging the charger etc. and holding the power button for 30 seconds and plugging in the charger only. That didn't work.
I tried plugging in a external monitor into it (one I know works as it's the one I am using currently) and the screen still didn't come on.
Before it died, I ran MemTest on each single RAM and both came back with no problems (ran each for an hour).
Hard drive was bad but replaced it and still nothing.
I am stumped on what it could be. I mean, I have a few ideas but would rather have someone else shed some light on my ideas.
1. Motherboard went bad.
2. onboard graphics died.
Could it be the CPU as well?
I have the whole thing disassembled right now.

Test the charger's voltage output with a DVM if you can, it should be close to the figure written on it or maybe a little higher which is ok.
If you can't do that a new charger should be quite cheap on Ebay.
It should work without a battery connected if the charger is working properly.
If a working charger makes no difference you could take a chance and buy a new battery or take it in to a repair shop.
The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.
i need a very quick reply please
Quick reply!!! Save your data and restore back to factory. Always have a back up image of your OS on a external drive for next time you have this problem!!http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/acer-aspire-5742-intelcore-i3-380m-goes-black-after-acer-logo-loads-984193.html

I restarted my computer like normal and for whatever reason the computer is now stuck at the Acer boot screen. I try to press DEL to enter Setup and I even tried pressing F12 to go into the Boot Setup, but for whatever reason the computer does not respond to anything.
To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.
Stuff to know:
- I have a wireless mouse and keyboard being used on that desktop.. Should I perhaps try to plug in a corded mouse and keyboard?
- I'm running on Windows 7 Ultimate.
Previously, this button would open Windows Media Center when pressed. Though it has stopped doing that and don't know why. How can I fix this?
All the other Mediatouch keys are working fine.
Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!
Hi Brett ... Welcome to Seven Forums ... Does the Webcam show in the Device Manager ? ...
Do you have any errors in the Device Manager ...?
Have you tried the Cyberlink WebCam Application 1.0.1523 23.6 MB ? ....
My system is roughly months old I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to home premium There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to Acer M3203 Windows software Acer's upgrade and Aspire 7 deep hibernation The only way to wake it was to unplug Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software the power from the tower I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers to finally reinstalling everything No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer I just got it back from Acer's repair depot They had to replace the motherboard hard drive and fans on the system They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold the hibernation thing started again It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory Now it seems stable running Vista I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell Is it me or is Acer systems flakey Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows without having to format every week I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly Sometimes it won't even turn on Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows
Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.
The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10. I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10. I have updated to all the most recent drivers. Very frustrating. Any thoughts?

Try booting to Memtest86 you can burn a CD and I think it can also be run from a USB bootable flash drive. This will test your memory for problems and also let you know that the hardware in general will run (except the hard drive which is ignored at this stage.If the memory is good, then boot to your hard drive mfg's utility or Seatools from Seagate (DOS version) the same as Memtest but it tests your hard drive to see if it is just the drive that you cannot install on.If the memory and hard drive tests OK then you may just need to delete all current partitions on the hard drive before trying to install.If the memory does not test good, try cleaning the contacts on the memory with a soft pencil eraser and snapping them in and out 5 or 6 times to also burnish the slot's contacts. Then try memtest again on one stick at a time in case one stick is bad, swap and try again.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.http://www.computing.net/answers/windows-8/acer-aspire-e15-will-not-boot-past-acer-logo/1671.html
To start off, this laptop has been horrible since the day I got it. I can't even believe how slow it is; it lags doing even the simplest tasks.That aside; I was prompted to update an AMD Catalyst Radeon (something like that) software, so I did. The screen went black and nothing happened for almost 10 hours.I eventually decided to turn off the power. Now that I turn it back on it's just stuck on "Acer explore beyond limits" screen.It has been like this for days now. I've tried turning it on and off again several times. It's just stuck at that screen.What do I do? How do I fix this? I need this computer for school.

Is this normal for a 6 month old machine..? I can't update windows 10. The message says that there's not enough room to update windows 10, so I buy a 32 gig card....still it says theres not enough space,,,so I try a 32gig usb stick....still no joy.....So I take it back to PC World where I'm treated like a child and told that they won't take it back...they'll just send it back to Acer to have windows 8 put on ...??! and did I realise it was a cloudbook and NOT a laptop...!! Left the shop with steam coming out of my ears...so, my question is this....Has anyone out there succeeded in updating their windows 10 cloudbook Because that despite having owned and worked with computers for over 30 years I cannot solve this problem....(Nor have I experienced such poor ill informed salespeople as I have in PC World....but that's another story...
you need an USB flash drive or external HDD with at least 16Gb and it must be NTFS formatted.http://www.thewindowsclub.com/upgrade-devices-less-free-space-windows-10http://community.acer.com/t5/Legacy-Laptops-and-Netbooks/month-old-acer-ao1-431-C2Q8-ACER-ASPIRE-ONE-CLOUDBOOK-14-can-t/td-p/460976

hi there everyone,
can anyone help,
Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180
i have these two computers and would like to know witch one i should upgrade,
wich one is the better computer- (
and when decided
what should i upgrade
and what are the best parts to use,
or the best way to do it,
and how do i know what parts are compatible
im not looking to spend a fortune,
but i dont mind spending a bit, as long as its worth it,
First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.
Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.
hi all I have 2 acre aspire laptops one is a acer aspire 5552 and the second one is 5551-a both of them has the black screen of death I have tried a external monitor tried new ram striped Botham down and reconnected everything back to the boards also have removed the battery and held the power button for 1 min + reconnected the battery and power cable with no success any help would be great .
It has worked since I bought it around 6 weeks ago but for the last week or so the connection has failed randomly. Yesterday it stopped working totally. The windows diagnostic report says that Windows could not detect a properly installed network adaptor- and to re-install the driver.How do I do this?Thanks
Hi Mills,1. Get to Device Manager(Hold Windows Key & then tap letter "X")2. Under device manager check if you find any other Devices or unknown devices,. if yes you may need another computer to download the files from acersupport.com3. If Not expand network adapters, check if you see the Wireless adapter, Right click uninstall & restart the unit.4. If the Device is not detected underOthers / Unknown devices / network adapter, please contact Acer as it is a suspected Hardware Failure.http://community.acer.com/t5/Legacy-Laptops-and-Netbooks/Acer-Aspire-Acer-Aspire-Switch-10-will-not-connect-to-wireless/td-p/344379/jump-to/first-unread-message

I finally found a soluation after months of wondering why this is happening. It's my Virgin Media connection, the modem/router as when I connected to my phones wifi, teethering, Acer Care Center instantly updated so something within Virgin Medias network is blocking connectivity. I did try the Virgin Media's router as cause by diabling firewall etc. but with no joy I gave up but didn't try another connection until just now with tethering where as stated problem is sorted. I will report this to Virgin Media and post back anything relevant to this.

My Acer Aspire 5612z, Dual-core celeron, 2GB ram, vista home premium 32bit, has two separate problems. Screen is filled with vertical red blue and white vertical stripes, if I tap the screen frame then the picture is ok for 30 mins or so, then goes stripey again. (Poss fault on FL board?).
Second, Laptop boots, 20 seconds, to Acer screen then stops.
Can only switch off power from that point.
Tapping the screen you could have a loose connection from the LCD Panel to the MOBO connector, but you see if you did the screen would dim out. In your case you have the the same issues that tell me that the LCD Panel is faulty. If this unit is still under warranty then have ACER service the unit or take it to ACER dealer who can either send it back to ACER or they can order the panel and replace it for you at no cost, but then it has to be under warranty. If not you'll have to pay the cost of ordering the part, labor to install it. Find out cost prior to signing any agreement.
On your other issue, did you replace or upgrade the battery or memory? If not then remove the battery and plugin the power only. Try this again does it boot the ACER logo and Windows. Can you put your ear down to the keys or palm rest and hear the HDD spinning up?
If not either the HDD is DOA or faulty power module on the MOBO or just bad MOBO. Again same as above if it's under warranty call or take it to ACER factory service dealer.
Make sure if you had a good battery on this laptop that all switches are switched to the lock mode for the battery.
The jack seems to be loose and the ac power cord will no longer charge the battery.http://community.acer.com/t5/S-and-R-Series-Laptops/Is-the-DC-jack-in-Aspire-R14-R5-471T-easily-replaceable-or/td-p/447185
I have an Aspire 5733Z and have been searching all morning for help with my issue and can't find any answers. I found this site and thought Finally! Then joined and can't find a thread to post to as I'm very computer illiterate and have no clue as to what category I would fit in. I know I will be offending someone by just mentioning this but if anyone can help point me in the right direction, I'd truly be appreciative
Thanks in advance and I'm glad to be here with all you Acer Owner's
Thanks to ElizabethS for getting me here!!! I've had my Aspire 5733Z since 9/5/11 and haven't had any issues until about a month ago, when I received an error message that the battery needed to be replaced. I went to Amazon and ordered the same make and model battery to replace it thinking easy-peasy right? Well I couldn't have been more wrong The battery light on my laptop keeps flashing and telling me its not charging even though its plugged in and the computer keeps shutting down randomly whether I'm online or not. Since I've had her, I've tried to keep the wire vent thing on the bottom of the computer free of lint and dust and I've even had her on a wooden pot holder that raises her enough to keep the air circulating so she doesn't get hot. She gets her updates on a regular basis and I've defraged her just recently. My son ran a HDD diagnostic and restored her to the factory default to no avail. Today, after the 20th time of shutting down and restarting, I noticed a new screen had popped up from the normal "your computer didn't shut down properly would you like to open windows normally" screen only after I pressed the enter key It told me it was "repairing the start-up process" which took a little over 3 hours before it started. Now my questions are: Is this the end of the old gal? Is there anything that can be done? Can she be fixed? I really hope someone might have another suggestion to try. I don't want to give up on her just yet and I just can't imagine a computer, well a laptop's life is only 5 years Thanks for readinghttp://community.acer.com/t5/Legacy-Laptops-and-Netbooks/Aspire-5733Z-random-shutdowns-after-battery-replacement/td-p/420937
i5 34508gb DDR32TBWIN 7 home premium My old AMD Radeon 7570 died and in looking for a good upgrade I have read quite a few posts on this site and others that this model is consistantly incompatible with a newer GPU. Regardless of how powerful a PSU is these cards are not working. It seems that the issue is the motherboard (I have AMI Bios). I looked at the new GTX 950 (75w), but if the motherboard is the issue then I just need to find what cards are compatible and go from there. I would love any help with this.

I have no idea if I'm on the right board or not.I have an Acer Aspire 5517. The built in camera has been giving me problems for a while now. I'm certain it has a loose connection or short at the base of the screen or along where the screen & unit connect. I've always been able to tap along there, and the camera would start to work, or clear up.Since I switched to Windows 10, and it's a pain anyway, it's not giving me the chance to try using the camera, and possibly tap the problem away, before it just says it can't find the camera. I know from looking at the service manual, where the camera plugs in at the top of the screen. I checked that, it's fine. I feel the problem is a connection near the hinge. Where is it connected there?http://community.acer.com/t5/Legacy-Laptops-and-Netbooks/Where-does-the-webcam-in-the-Aspire-5517-plug-in-I-have-a-short/td-p/453016

I have an Aspire V3-771G-9809 laptop and want tto upgrade the memory. However, I have a question. If I go to Crucial.com and go thru and let it select the memory it comes up with this as one of the options. If you'll notice it says the memory is 1.35 V. However, if I go here it says the memory is 1.5 V. Which is correct? Several places have listed 1.5V.... the above is just an example. Would this memory from Newegg work in my computer? Thanks
Hi, You can use cpu-z to check the memory voltage. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.htmlYou can find this detail on the SPD page within CPU-Z. But as far as I saw on the internet the notebook has DDR3 memory with 1.5V and not DDR3L memory with 1.35V.http://community.acer.com/t5/V-and-VN-Series-Laptops/Acer-Aspire/td-p/443845

if this is jsut the spash screen that says' this than it's not a big deal. Find out what model of motherboard was put in the computer, the easiest way is to open it up and look it will be printed somewhere on the board. And check the specifications of your computer to find out what board came with the computer, if it's the same baord then no worries. It's most likely the splash images that's programed into the bios of the board by default and they forgot to change it.

I had a blue Acer R11 that got wet inside. I had not had it very long. Sent it to Acer and they sent it back because moisture kills a warrenty. It had windows 10, 4gb ram, 11' screen (i think). i loved it and cannot find it anywhere. Tech Support said it was still in production but i cannot find it anywhere. I think i paid $275.00 or $375.00. Wal Mart was selling it a little cheaper around Christmas. I loved it and really want another one.

Hi, Thank you for your help previously. I purchased an Acer Aspire last February, it has 150gb Hard Drive, which it 'partitioned into Drives 'C' and 'D'
with 75 gb on each. The C drive states ACER 'C' but the D drive states ACERDATA 'D'.
The C drive is filling up and I have had a message saying uninstall some programmes, but surely I can just use the 'D' Drive? I am confused why it says ACERDATA?
Can anyone advise me what to do please?
Merry Christmas everyone.
Drive names can be changed easily, if that's all that's bothering you.
Just right-click on the drive, while in Explorer view, and name it whatever.
In fact, they don't even have to have a name...XP goes by the drive letter. Names are conventions for users who want to indulge.
Hey everyone, i really want to ask about this laptop. I have bougth this laptop, and it is just 3 months old. Recently, my laptop produce a clicking sound randomly. It is most noticeable when i turn the the laptop on. Is it really normal ? as it is equipped with SSD not HDD. I have brought it to acer service center and the problem still there. I really want to know whether this laptop is normal to have clicking sound like that? Thanks in advance
Have you tried turning the sound all the way down ? Need to determine if coming from speakers or the PC itself.http://community.acer.com/t5/S-and-R-Series-Laptops/Acer-aspire-s13/td-p/459495
OK, I'm not sure this is the right place but, here goes...
I turn on my Acer Aspire 5332. It flashes onto the Acer Aspire Screen, then says "Windows is loading files in a black and grey screen. Then, it turns Dark Grey, and goes no further. I need to fix it! Any help? Can't replace parts. I need emergent help!
Do you have a Windows 7 DVD?
If so, can you boot from it and run the "Startup Repair"?
My usual method for repairing boot problems, is to re-image my PC using my backup HDD images.
It's much faster than trying to diagnose and fix the problem.
You might have to wait for one of the Boot Problem experts to drop in.

I own an Acer Aspire One with windows xp. It has a VGA out but my tv only has HDMI in. Since it's VGA I am guessing that an VGA to DVI to HDMI adapter process won't work because vga is analog whilst dvi and hdmi are digital. I am aware that DVI supports analog as well as digital, but HDMI does not. So is there any way for me to get video from my laptop to my TV for cheap?

Hi, I'm not sure if this is in the right thread but it's the only one that makes sense.
I have an Acer Aspire E1-571. It's about a year old and today it is not turning on. Well it turns on shows the Acer loading screen with it's slogan but then the screen go's black and nothing happens. I've left it for about 20 minutes with still nothing happening. If I turn it on with the charger plugged in the screen will go black for about 10 seconds before blue screening and restarting itself where it happens over again.
It was working fine last night and when I first turned it on today but today the laptop crashed while I was using it and then these problems began.
Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you

I have an Aspire V3-771G-9809 laptop and want tto upgrade the memory. However, I have a question. If I go to Crucial.com and go thru and let it select the memory it comes up with this as one of the options. If you'll notice it says the memory is 1.35 V. However, if I go here it says the memory is 1.5 V. Which is correct? Several places have listed 1.5V.... the above is just an example. Would this memory from Newegg work in my computer?

So i have an acer aspire 3000 with the stock 256mb ram and im looking to upgrade it to 1gb
my problem is that the manual gives the maximum memory module size as 512mb in ech of the two slots while two ram choosers on the kingston and corsair websites have told me that i can use 1gb modules
I would like to know if i can actually use 1gb modules as it is simpler and i can upgrade again in the future (and if this is possible can i out both the old 256mb module and new 1gb modules in together to give 1280 mb)
That should work , using the 1gb and 256 sticks, but it might not run at the full ddr333 mhz speed. the reason it might not be posted like that on acer's website is because they "do not recommend it" for the reason i stated before.
I have an Acer Aspire T300, Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4cpu 2.40GHz
2.39GHz, 736MB of Ram. I have recently upgraded google earth and since then i have not been able to start program due to lack of graphics memory. Even before then it was a dodgy startup with gl or directx modes. I think my system only has 8mg card in it. (Standard) I would like to get a bigger one but not sure what i need to look for to make sure it is compatible and also as i dont do heaps of graphics work i dont wanna put in excessive for what i need. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.. Thanks

Looking for some advice on how to fix my sons aspire,
It has a problem with the network adapter drivers and i cant seem to get correct ones downloaded to a flash drive then transfered over.
Any help is greatly appreciated by a noob.
What is the make and model of this computer?
Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any errors?
Have you tried uninstalling the driver in the Device Manager and restart the computer? If the drivers are native to Windows 7 a new driver will be added when you restart the computer?
I bought 2 acer aspire es1 311 last week, one for me and one for my huasbsnd so the we could take abroaf and work on the. I was just loading a few files on my acer last night.

By that stage I had to shut it down completely as I had to get on aeroplane. Now whdn I try rebooting I get not very far - says no rebootable devise when it to self diagnose and repair it. I have no idea what to do now. No starteup dics came with the laptop Also the fan is making loud whirring noise. Any help would be much appreciated.Kind regardsKatherinehttp://community.acer.com/t5/E-and-M-Series-Laptops/Acer-aspire/td-p/434481/jump-to/first-unread-message
My neighbor has an acer aspire one and I'm simply trying to give him a different desk top background and it just isn't working.Anyone else have one of these little guy that managed to get themselves a background ?Tanx in advance MikeEDIT: Moved from XP forum to Win 7 ~ Hamluis.

Hi,Anyone know what it means when a PC only repeatably beeps on start up and doesn't even send a signal to the monitor?I have a Tennant that has this problem and she isn't one to know what to do in this situation, heck I don't know what it is?I've switch her monitor with mine and it still won't work. I've removed the BIOS battery and still no change, beep beep beep continually is all it does.So, does anyone know what that means and how to fix it. Thanks.John PS Would no mouse attached do this? Her mouse pins are to bent to fit in the back of the PC. I can't imagine that this would be the problem. Is it?
Usually these beep codes indicate bad graphics hardware or bad ram.
Is there any combination of long and short beeps, or are they only the same duration? Is there any change in pitch from beep to beep?
Ive just been given a acer aspire desktop not sure of model but it has xp on it it wont let me format as the installed version is newer than mine .I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to restore to factory settings
Well...you would have to look at the Acer system docuemtation...if you want to restore to factory defaults.
In lieu of that, I would suggest updating your XP CD via slipstreaming and then using that to reinstall XP.

hi my friend s laptop is an aspire one acer with intel atom processor and windows xp OS when i turn it on the dos-like screen that says quot We apologize for the inconvenience but Windows did not start successfully A recent hardware or software change might have caused this If your computer stopped responding restarted unexpectedly or was automatically shut down to protect your files and aspire acer one folders choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed or if you aren t sure what caused the problem choose Start Windows Normally quot Then choices shows Safe Mode Safe Mode with Networking Safe Mode with Command Prompt Last Known Good Configuration your most recent settings that worked and Start Windows normally I tried all those but to no avail When i choose something it goes to the windows screen that s supposed to show a log in screen However it just stops suddenly and shows a blue screen which i cant read what it s saying since it just restarts after that and after acer aspire one it restarted it just goes to the quot dos-like quot screen that i mentioned earlier and do the same thing i can try just reformatting the laptop but my friend has some important stuff on it so i cant just do that without getting the saved files which i dont know how to get coz of the above problem please help me guys either how to get that files or to fix the problem itself thanks
First thing is to see what the Blue Screen is saying and then we can go about curing it. It shouldn't be a hopeless case so no need to panic yet.
Start up the machine but keep tapping F8 during start-up. You'll get a menu similar to the one you've seen but there'll be an option in there that says "Disable Automatic System restart" or something along those lines.
Highlight that one and then when it reaches the bluescreen, it'll simply halt - so now you can copy what it says (The first line is the important one, an error message followed probably by an error code starting 0x.....)
Post back here with what it says & we'll take it from there. Have you got an XP CD? We'll probably be needing that next - but don't panic, we're not going to be simply wiping the system - oh no
Hi, Am not sure where to post my question but hopefully if I start in General, someone will be able to direct me. Are there any Acer Aspire 1 owners out there? If so, have any of you experienced random rebooting of the machine in mid stride? We have had ours for about a month and at any time it will just reboot - generally when you haven't saved! If you can suggest solutions I would be most greatful. Cheers
My first reaction is to say it's only a month old, take it backWe need a more detailed descriptionIt could be software or hardware relatedDo you get a blue screen or any error messages?How to disable automatic restarts:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74644/how-to-disable-automatic-restarts-when-windows-crashes/http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/263025/acer-aspire-one/

Hi there! I have this new Acer Aspire Z3-710 over a week now and have completed all set-ups (i guess). At first it was all doing great but now whenever i open a File Explorer, point to any folder and right click, the pointer turns into that circle waiting thing and then the opened explorer stops responding. But after a long while of waiting, the rightclick dropdown appears. It takes ages. Please help me on this. I don't think I already got a virus since im still running the free version of McAfee antivirus. Cheers,jogdeguzman
First of all you need to check if computer is using high CPU usage, to check this please follow the steps mention below:-Press 'Ctrl' key +'Alt' key +'Del' key to bring up the windows task manager.-Click on 'Performance' tab and check for 'CPU Usage'.-If it is high, you need to go on 'Processes' tab and end unwanted process that are running.-Now you need to install genuine antivirus in the computer and run the full scan to detect the virus. Hope this will help you.http://community.acer.com/t5/All-In-One-PCs/Acer-Aspire-Z3-710/td-p/421800/jump-to/first-unread-message

To help you activate your Windows 8.1 Operating System copy depends on how you acquired your copy of Windows?- If you purchased Windows from an authorized retailer, the product key should be on a label inside the box it came in.- If you bought a new PC with Windows, the product key will be pre?installed on your PC and your PC will automatically be activated. The product key should be included with the packaging the PC came in, or on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to the PC. If you bought a digital copy of Windows from a Microsoft website, the product key should be in the confirmation email you received after buying it. There are 2 alternate methods to activate you Windows Operating System, please find the link given below and follow step-by-step instructions mentioned on ?Activate Windows 8.1?:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15083/windows-how-to-activate You can also directly contact ?Microsoft Volume Licensing Activation Centers? from the link given below:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/existing-customer/activation-centers.aspx Hope this will help you.http://community.acer.com/t5/Windows-8-1/Acer-Aspire-E15/td-p/441098
