Acer Aspire 5610 Vista laptop to Win 7 - possible?

Q: Acer Aspire 5610 Vista laptop to Win 7 - possible?

My Acer Aspire 5610-4648 is not listed in the Acer site's compatability list for an upgrade from Vista to Windows 7. The Acer support says that a change of operating system for this model is not supported. The Microsoft Win 7 upgrade advisor has no objections.

After reading all available posts that I could find, I did not find any posts of success, yet the difference in technology should not be that great. The areas of concern to me are for the Acer-supplied applications such as the Enpowering Technology, and especially the wireless manager.

Has anyone had success with this upgrade and are willing to share their experience?

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Acer Aspire 5610 Vista laptop to Win 7 - possible?

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.)

Sony said mine CAN NOT run Wds7 at all .... but I did a clean install anyway and it works perfectly fine ..
I also used all vista drivers "32bit" for new windows .. So i think you are fine.
Look at my specs ....

hi. Any help would be greatly appriated. I have a problem with my acer aspire 5610, it ofter struggles to start. it gets as far as logging in then restarts. the problem all started when i put windows 7 on it, later i found that acer do not advice this os for this machine so i put vista ultimate on but the problem remains. I have cleaned the heat sink and renewed the heatsink paste also changed the ram for some i had lieing around. when the laptop does fully boot and your in windows, most of the time stays on and will be fine for days as it hibinated and wakes fine. If it crashes or updates i have the starting problem again.

Any one have any ideas what the problem maybe?

A:acer aspire 5610 restarting

Did you format the drive before installing Vista? And after installing it, did you download and install all of the proper drivers starting with the chipset driver?

What happens when you boot to safe mode?

Hi! My old laptop does not boot anymore. After showing the Windows XP and Acer logo, it goes back to rebooting and it goes on like that. And so I wasn't able to get the drivers saved in its hard disk.

I think the only solution is to reformat my laptop and so I wanted to reformat it with the new windows 7 os. But the problem is I can't find any drivers of the Acer Aspire 5610 for windows 7 and I don't have any recovery CD.

Please help me. I know my laptop is quite old but it is still running okay until this recent problem. Please tell me where can I download the drivers so I can go ahead with reformatting.

Thanks!

A:Drivers for Acer Aspire 5610

You best bet is to use the Windows Vista drivers that are made available by the Acer support site. Most of the time, Vista drivers will work just fine in Windows 7. If they don't you can try installing them in compatibility mode (Right Click Installer, Properties, Compatibility, etc)

32-BIT Vista Drivers
Chipset - Intel
Audio - Realtek
Bluetooth - Broadcom
Camera - Bison
Camera - Logitech
Camera - Suyin
Card Reader - ENE
FIR - SMSC

You may also need to find LAN drivers if your network card isn't supported by Windows 7 automatically. The ones below are for Windows XP, I highly suggest that you attempt to find Broadcom drivers that work for Vista or 7.

Broadcom Lan Drivers (v8.48.0.0)

There are no 64-BIT drivers supplied on the website.

Hello, I'm currently having problems with my dvd drive on my laptop, I'm aware that there are many threads with almost identical problems to mine but no solutions I've tried seem to work.

The drive dosen't appear in my computer, and in device management does appear but with the alert sign over it. When reistalling the drive it says "problem during installation". I've also tried installing new drivers and firmware from the acer website but this hasn't helped. I haven't added or changed anything on the computer I can think of, rather studidly I hadn't set any system restore points.

My laptop is the Acer Aspire 5610.

System information:

Microsoft Windows XP
Media Centre Edition
version 2002
Service Pack 3

Genuine Intel CPU
T2300 @ 1.66 GHz
1.3GHz, 0.99BG of RAM.

The DVD drive is:

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM DSA-T10N

Any help would be great, Thanks.

Got recovery and system disks from Acer to reinstall Vista but keep getting a window saying something about windows/vista not able to install with this hardware.

A:Acer Aspire 7730G laptop - Sudden Vista BSOD (usbvideo.sys says debug tool)

Hi. . .

A 0xce bugcheck = DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELLING_PENDING_OPERATIONS = driver failed to cancel pending operations before unloading. Probable cause as you mentioned is the Microsoft driver usbvideo.sys.

If you don't use the webcam, for now In would suggest that you disable it via Device Manager under Imaging Devices.

My webcam lists usbvideo.sys & ksthunk.sys as the drivers. Do you show the same 2 - or do you have others?

Look for start-up programs for the webcam as well in msconfig & services that can be disabled.

A:New Help Bad with a Acer Aspire Laptop! Please

I am not sure what else I could do to see if in fact the drive was badIf you have another computer and by using a USB external enclosure, you may be able to check the status of both the new and old laptop drives. There maybe a chance that your hard drive is not well seated and needs to gently press while powering up your laptop and then try checking on your BIOS utility. Check also for any dented pins. Have you tried reapplying thermal paste for the CPU and look for any oxidation and burnt components?

btw "advanced system care" software seemed to have saved my xp computer for now anyway
 

A:Acer Aspire Laptop

First of all try disk clean up > run that
Then again but this time choose 'clean up system files'

Run CCleaner Slim (only in its 'default' settings) and run the cleaner. Use its 'Tools' to remove all but the latest System Restore point.

Other things to free space is do a clean uninstall (using something decent like Revo Uninstaller in its Advanced mode) of any programs you don't need or use.

so I have a Acer Aspire E5-574-G laptop, and have several questions about it. Firstly, I would very much like to replace the battery in my laptop with a better one with more capasity. Is one sold? if so, what do i get? secondly, I have the dedicated graphics card, and whenever the battery gets low it swithces to the intigrated graphics, even when plugged in. How can I make it use the dedicated graphics for the programs it usually would, even when the battery is low?         Cheers,                  Randomdude

Hello NiQui and welcome to TSF!

Have you tried booting in Safe-Mode?.
If not you can try this by holding F8 when Windows is about to boot and a menu should appear. You should select " Boot in Safe Mode". See if you manage to get to desktop with this.

Thanks,
Altie

My acer notebook is about 9 months and has turned really slow. i think it needs to be seriously cleaned up. I have done scans using Macaffee, windows defender, disk defrag, and clean up. But nothing seems to help the speed.

First check with malwarebytes, for malware.

Take the memory diagnostic test to make sure memory is ok. 1GB is never going to be enough.

Go to search type cmd, then right clikc do not hit enter. In CMD type sfc /scannow. Any small corruption will be fixed.

In the device manager make sure that all drivers are ok. You will see a yellow warning marker by any defective drivers.

Make sure your drivers are up to date

Shut off you A/V If it runs faster, dump it and get MSE Microsoft Security Essentials.

Then come back and report.

A:Vista will not boot - Acer Aspire

Are you hitting the F8 key early enough, you should start to tap on it as soon as the Acer logo dissapears.

You have set the USB CDROM to first in the boot order, are you using an external CD drive? The drive in the laptop will not be listed as a USB device, you need to set the internal CD drive to 1st in the boot order.

You can buy a device called a USB Hard Drive Adapter for about €10. If you get one you can remove your hard drive and use this device to connect it to another PC. You can then extract all your files and run some diagnostics on the drive which I can give instructions for.

If the copy of Vista you have does not exactly match your version of Vista and is at the same service pack level, or higher, it will not work. It should boot the laptop but you will not be able to use it for any kind of repair as it will produce an error. You can download a Vist repair disc for your version from here: http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/

Just checked the above link and downloads are suspended but may be back soon.

A:Replace Vista with XP on Acer aspire

You probably need to install SATA drivers but without a floppy drive you'll have to make a slipstream CD. Google for the procedure as well as for the SATA driver. There are a number of guides that tell you how.

A:Help With Vista on an Acer Aspire M3600

Hi Kc


Since your system has such recent hardware, to use XP Pro, you'd probably want an XP Pro Cd with Service Pack 2 already on it, or slip-streamed on.

For instuctions on how to slip-stream a Service Pack, here are a few guides --- http://www.helpwithwindows.com/Windo...p2-bootcd.html --- http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase...slipstream.asp

If the SATA driver for your SATA controller isn't included in SP2, you'll have to provide the driver when you are installing XP Pro SP2, by pressing the F6 when prompted, and pointing to the drivers.

Step-by-step instructions for installing XP Pro are here --- http://www.windowsreinstall.com/indexwinxppro.htm --- you can scroll down to see several different sorts of XP Pro installs.

Best of luck
. . . Gary

P.S. ... should you wish to try Vista after all, and you haven't erased or damaged the Restore partition on the hard drive, you can try the eRestore utility (you'd press the ALT and F10 keys simultaneously during system boot) -- full instructions are here --- http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/dat...or%20%20DT.pdf

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.

In particular run a full Disk Check from DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options Command Line, followed by SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail to help work through the other steps in order until if necessary you run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall. You can rescue your files at any time using that step.

Hi

My first post and its a problem

basically I have a Acer Laptop when it goes into standby and you try to go back to desktop you get a bluescreen of death and reboots but it happens to fast to see the error.

Other times it will just randomly freeze for no reason.

Sometimes when you press the power button all you get is a black screen.

I have installed winxp home and pro editions, done all service pack updates and driver updates. Updated the bios. and still the problems persist.

Has any one got a solution or faced the same problems.

thx for reading.

Hello folks,

My sister's Acer Aspire 3002LMI has recently ceased to power on whatsoever. Bought in '05 and run mostly from the mains, it suddenly acted as though it was running out of battery - despite being plugged into the mains - and went into hibernation.

By the time she showed it to me, pressing the power button would just make the battery charge LED flash 8 times - nothing else. Now, a few days later, absolutely nothing happens when I press the power button.

The problem occurs regardless of whether the battery is in the laptop. She never used the laptop without the battery in - as it formed part of the base - so whether it ever worked without the battery is not certain. I've also tried using another power cable, to no avail.

So, any ideas what the cause of this problem could be? Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Rob

Something has happened and all my files and photos have deleted, hoping there's a way to have everything restored?

A:How do I restore everything on my Acer aspire e15 laptop

More detailed nformation is essential here.What happened prior to your files disappearing?Do NOT run a fectory restore/reset routine, as if you do you will lose all prospect of recovering your files.Does the computer boot up to a normal desktop etc.?

Hi Dave, and welcome to TSG.

Check if the Dell monitor has any buttons for activating an on screen menu that allows you to choose which input it should use.

If you need further assistance, it would help us to help you if you told us the exact model number of the Dell monitor.

I've had this since it was new, but I got a more powerful asus laptop for christmas last year.However, thats waiting for a new power supply.

This Acer was never THIS bad. Even resuming from sleep mode, the mouse lags badly, sometimes freezing for a few seconds. Chrome takes forever to load. Facebook freezes often. Even using the start menu, it lags. The final straw was when I went to delete a small text document, the entire laptop froze solid and needed to be rebooted.

You guys have helped me in the past, so i'm sure its possible to be fixed. I have tried: uninstalling things, Malwarebytes, Ccleaner.

Hello everyone!
I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question but ...
I have Acer aspire e1-571 laptop for a while now more than one year. Recently it started to boot really slow. Not the windows part but the time between pressing the power button and Acer logo appearing.. Was very long about 10 to 20 min. I searched for a solution, and I tried removing the bios battery and putting it back. But now it dosntieven boot up anymore. I waited on it all night all nothing. The lights are on I even hear the fan but nothing the screen doesn't show anything.
Could anyone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.
 

A:acer aspire laptop won't boot up.. help !

Try reseating the memory. If you have more than one stick, try booting with just one stick, and then alternating. Sometimes, it can be the memory slot itself, so try the other.

Also, be sure to have all external devices unplugged: USB sticks, hard drives, mice, etc.

A:my acer aspire E15 laptop is not starting up

Since it shut down during gaming (which creates more heat), the laptop may have overheated. When that happens, it shuts down automatically to prevent permanent damage to the components.So let it cool down for a few hours then try again.If it still won't power up you'll have to take it to a laptop repair shop.

G'day,

I have an operating system stored on a hidden drive (not on a CD, it comes with the computer) on my notebook and wish to install it. During the boot process, you are supposed to press a key on your keyboard to start the installation. The problem is, I can't remember it!

Any ideas?

Cheers!

A:Acer Aspire 8920G Pre-Installed Vista Help

Are you talking about reinstalling your OS from the recovery partition. If yes, this is the procedure for Acer:

1. Backup all your data

2. Restart your PC and press ALT+F10 when you get the first splash screen - or check on that screen whether they want you to press something else. That gets you to the installation wizard that will guide you.

Thank you.


Make sure that he has his XP disc/key ready, any data from Vista that he wants backed up, the drivers for his SATA HD on a Disc (This may not be necessary)

First step...do the above
Second Step...boot the XP disc and if it recognizes his HD than you are almost golden
Third Step...Install XP
Fourth Step...Enjoy!

Even though we are a Win7 help forum...don't be a stranger and come back to ask questions even if you run XP

A:My Acer Aspire 5536 won't load Vista

Have you left any CD/DVD's in the drive or a USB flash drive inserted? if so remove them and try again. If you have a card reader check there is nothing in it and if a blank is fitted make sure it is properly inserted.

Will it boot from the OS disc?

Unfortunately, if this is not the case, your hard drive has probably failed. Run this diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer. You will need to use another PC to download the ISO and burn it to a disk.





Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturers diagnostic for ISO CD. Burn the image file to a CD, boot the PC with the disc in the drive and run the diagnostics. You first need to set the CD drive to 1st in the boot order in the Bios setup.

If you do not have an image burner use this free software to make the CD.

currently the Aspire E Acer Aspire E700 Upgrading Xp, Vista With To has XP Media Center Edition and i'm wanting to upgrade it to Vista Home Premium i've come for help here since Acer won't support me even though the system is Vista Capable Now for a start Acer Tech support won't tell me how to burn the recovery discs that are on the hidden partion on the hardrive and told me that if i upgraded to Vista they would be useless anyway because Acer Aspire E700 With Xp, Upgrading To Vista Vista Upgrade or full clean install would delete it and the discs wouldn't work To go back to previous windows i would need to do a ghost image of it so i can use the old windows if needed after instaling vista i would need to do a ghost image also so i wouldn't have the activation problem so that would be done What is a good Ghost image maker and which are the simplest to use in creating and restoring Is Vista Upgrade easy to install your self do you think it would be best if i took it to a computer store to do this i know they can charge a bit but this process shouldn't take more than a day Let me know the best way around this

A:Acer Aspire E700 With Xp, Upgrading To Vista

1) A good Ghost imaging program is Acronis True Image (get v10 for Home as it's Vista compatible also). Another is Ghost by Symantec. There are freeware apps out there, but I haven't tried any so I can't recommend them.

2) Vista is much simpler than XP. Less time and fewer screens to contend with. Stay away from upgrading another OS - too many problems. But purchasing the upgrade version and clean installing it will be the easiest.

3) A computer store could do this faster and easier than you - but if you find a place that'll do it in a day I'd wonder because they weren't all that busy. Expect 3 or 4 days for an installation without issues - longer if there's problems with the drivers, etc.

Hey I have a proble, with my screen. Everytime I close it I guess it goes to sleep. I open it back up and the screen is black. I press the power buton, any key, or Fn+F4 and it still doesn't come up. I've tried changing video display. Nada. I just found out that when I click space or back space. It makes the ping sound. So I know it's running just, not showing anything. Any help would be definitely appreciated.
Thanks, Daeva

Hey all,

I just acquired a new laptop an Acer Aspire E1-510 laptop.
It comes with Windows 8 by default and wanted to install Windows 7, so I did my regular pre-install driver checks, and found out Acer does not have Windows 7 drivers for this model.
I saw in another post that the same thing happened to someone else for a different Acer E1 model and they found the drivers. Could you help me with finding the correct drivers?

Thanks in advance,

Ampie

Got my 5672WLMi last week and out of the box the sound worked fine on boot. But the minute I started playing a game or a media file it starts breaking up and stays that way. I work in IT so did the following things:

Updated to the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers
Uninstalled and re-installed the sound device
Updated to latest Bios
Restored to factory settings
Clean format and re-install of XP Pro SP2

None of these worked. Could it be a hardware problem?
 

A:Help! Bad sound on new Acer Aspire 5672WLMi Laptop

I'm guessing that you mean that the sound is "Stuttering"???

If so, the moat probable cause is that the "LOAD" that the game puts on the Laptop is too much for it to process the sound properly. In normal laptops the sound and video are onboard units (size issues). So, when doing heavy processing, the onboard units are impacted negatively.

Most lappies are not for gaming.
