Acer Aspire One keyboard "Fn" problem

Q: Acer Aspire One keyboard "Fn" problem

hi guys.

help

im having trouble with my laptop keyboard.
whenever i use my laptop keyboard the Fn function is "on" for the numeric keypad (the one usually on the right side of a normal keyboard). this started when i used an external keyboard. so thinking 'bout it i unplug the external keyboard but the same thing happens. the Fn function for the numeric keypad is "on". I have also tried powercycling the system but its still the same.

Please help. I can't use my laptop outside my house coz of that.

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.)

A: Acer Aspire One keyboard "Fn" problem

Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicating that the funtion keys are in use.

I also found a very similar post here: http://geeklord.com/2008/01/19/solution-to-keyboard-lag-problem-in-acer-aspire-4520-laptop/
About sticky keys (although that model may be different to yours)
Seems there may be a Bios update for that very issue

I reformatted an acer aspire 5100 laptop.
I partitioned it.
I installed Win98SE on the first partition, installation went well apart from not booting at all.
Now whatever system I load or install, 98 or ME I can only access safe mode in ME. 2000 refuses to install. Is this laptop vendor software specific as the drivers dont seem to be accessed from any normal Win OS I install.

For anyone else having this issue, I happened to find a solution here: Digital Audio (HDMI) shows not Plugged In Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Community .. specifically, I used the Intel update tool to update the graphics driver. I somehow managed to install a newer Realtek driver (6.0.1.7378) before doing this, but it wasn't working until I updated the graphics driver. Now HDMI is plug n' play for both audio and video.

Hi all, I am trying to reinstall Windows 7 on my notebook (Acer Aspire 5742-7645) from the DVD. I get as far as this screen: http://www.buildeasypc.com/pics/wind...windows7_3.jpg

Hi Everyone,

First post here, allow me to thank you in advance for your good help - people like me who have limited information on diagnostics and repair owe a deep debt of gratitude for your service.

I own an Acer Aspire V5-571P-6815, which has put up the Recovery blue screen of death, citing Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information. It also cites File:\BCD, Error Code 0xc0000034. It says I'll need to use the recovery tools ion my installation media or boot cd/USB device.

Thank you so much for any help you may be able to give me. I am ready to carry out instruction. I have my cell phone, iPad, and temporarily, another laptop with CD burner.

EDIT: I also have access to UEFI Firmware Settings with menu options. Thanks.

Best,

Maitai11

So, I'm sorry to be bumping this, but I was just wondering if someone could get me started in the right direction? I would greatly appreciate it.

A:Synaptic touchpad can't kill "Tap to Click" - Acer Aspire 5741

I determined that the touchpad in the replacement top cover was from Elantech. Even when deleting the Synaptics drivers under "uninstall programs" and deleting the driver in device manager along with the "PS/2 mouse" the device ID code implies that the hardware manufacturer is Synaptics. I downloaded the "Acer" versions of all three manufacturers' drivers from the Acer support page, then extracted them all to separate directories. I then installed and uninstalled them all. The key was to use "Update Driver" from within Device Manager to get them to properly install. That was hours of my life I'll never get back!

So far I've...
Tried to reset my CMOS to default, did not work.
Tried to go to Advanced Boot Options, laptop just kept restarting.
Tried to see if my D2D recovery was enabled in BIOS, it was.
Tried to use alt+F10, did not work.

I really don't have the time or money at the moment to buy a recovery disk (hopefully it can be voided), so I was wondering if
a.) Anyone had another troubleshooting tip.
or
b.) If anyone knew how to fix the alt+f10 method I tried.

It looks like your recovery partition is corrupted. You never want to rely on the recovery partition, because if your hard drive fails, the recovery partition goes down with it. The erecovery manager should've prompted you to make the recovery discs when you first started up the computer. It doesn't cost any money to make them. Since you don't havbe erecovery discs, it looks like you are going to have to clean install Windows 7 (which I prefer because it doesn't have all of the bloatware that you would have if you ran erecovery) To clean install Windows 7 on your computer, please follow this tutorial and post back with any questions: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

My laptop, when powered up started automatically launching Windows Start Repair and loops for hours in fixing problems. I do not know what prompted this cycle to even start. I have entered the F2 screen at the start up and made it so it starts from a disk vs hard drive. I then put in the 1st recovery cd and restart. It automatically loads into the screen "Please wait a moment" and never proceeds. Help

Hello & Welcome to Tech Guy Forum.

I started to do a full system recovery on my son's Acer Aspire 5750z, Click to expand...

Why?

I am NOT, sadly an expert with the Acer recovery program.

I don't know if stopping & restarting will damage your computer.

Which service pack of W7 HP 64 bit?

Logically, what choices have you; wait for X # of hours, or shut it down?

If you shut it down, boot to the W7 Recovery Environment & try a repair. It might find the files necessary to believe that W7 is currently installed.

Run Diags from Acer, that are probably built into the computer.

Which Acer Aspire 5750z? There seem to be multiple offerings.

There's a user guide here.

I'm assuming you upgraded from Vista/XP. With and upgrade to a different OS and there are devices that don't work right away with the latest drivers tells me that the BIOS for the MOBO needs to updated/flashed. I would start there first. Sometimes the old BIOS are just not compatible with a new version of an OS.

A friend of mine purchased this computer from a Wal-Mart about a year ago. I have noticed that ever since re-installing windows onto this computer, the fan speed is running at (what seems like) 200% all the time. No matter what. I installed a program called Speed Fan and it does not register a fan being in the system at all. It also tells me that my core temperature (right after startup) is at 108 degrees F. That is absolutely absurb. I have ordered and installed a new fan, and the problem is still the same. I have also checked all my drivers, all my windows updates, and my BIOS is up to date. I am completely out of ideas and am close to scrapping the computer. Does anyone have any suggestions?

A:Acer Aspire D257-13450 Fan "Out of Control"

There should be some sort of fan control in the BIOS. In my laptop, in the BIOS, I have only limited options (2), to either to have the fan on low at all times or on high that cycles on and off when a certain temperature is reached (that I can't control). Most laptops off the shelf are low end and really don't have any viable options for control of the internal hardware.

Guys, three days ago I was using an Acer Aspire 1410 notebook until I mistakenly pressed the disable trackpad key on the keyboard for the one which turns off the display. I have hit on that key previously various times, but for the first time it permanently disabled the trackpad on the little pc. (Of course, I tried enabling it again)

I restarted the PC, and bam! The trackpad disappeared from the Device Manager page! I just don't know what to do. I don't want to disassemble the pc.

Any ideas? Thanks

A:Acer Aspire 1410's trackpad "killed itself" :s

Go back to acer's website and try downloading and reinstalling the driver for it before you freak completely out. Also make sure the toggle is in the "on" position as what disabling it using that button does, is completely cut power to the device.

Which would explain why it's not showing in the device manager.

I've found out some more since last time. I brought the monitor back to where I bought it, and it worked completely fine, so I came up with a conclusion.

It has to be something with my graphics card or something. But that is also actually a bit weird, 'cause I get the frame even while booting! Why!?

I recently went to sky from virgin and got a new router, since then my laptop cant get internet access only Local only and says Unidentified network. The laptop works fine with other routers and other laptops work fine with my router.

Can anyone help please
 

A:Acer 5315 "Unidentified Network" problem

how are you connected by wireless ?
have you tried connecting with a cable and does it work

can we see an ipconfig /all , and xirrus screen shot
also try a tcp/ip reset and also removing any wireless profiles - see all below

what windows version are you running

what wireless security is being used on the new router

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste
------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.com/Products/Wi-Fi-Inspector.aspx
Direct link to the program is here http://wpc.475a.edgecastcdn.net/00475A/XirrusWiFiInspectorSetup.1.2.0.exe

{If the above link does not work heres another link http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_download/fid,77196-order,4/download.html}

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

A user guide is available here http://www.xirrus.com/Products/Wi-Fi-Inspector/xirruswifiinspectorguide1-2-0.aspx

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.
Full details are here http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Posting_a_Screenshot

Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I confess I'm Mac user and helpless when it comes to assisting my son overcome his nonchalance with technical matters. He bought a very small Acer Aspire notebook with a dinky 8.9" screen. It wouldn't be my cup of tea, but he loves it. I was staggered when I learned that there is no software with it ? no OS disks. I believe it came loaded with the XP and it's his responsibility to make his own disks using an external drive to clone his system. Frankly I don't understand any of this, but I would be enormously grateful for advice on how he should proceed to fulfill his responsibility. Thank you up front.

A:Cloning Acer Aspire 8.9" notebook

It probably has a restore partition on it. When you boot up it should say something about hit this F key to restore or something, usually the F11 key. You can also make your own Restore CD's using the computer manufactures included utility.

There are a few threads that do not specifically indicate that the Acer monitor has this problem.

I post this thread title merely for those searching for a solution, since the other threads do not feature Acer in the title.

The problem to this issue is certainly not the video card or drivers.

The problem is the power button. In order to reset the monitor so that the "no signal" problem disappears, one must unplug the monitor power cord and plug it back in. Then, do not turn the monitor off with the power button. Just shutdown or hibernate the computer leaving the monitor power button on 24/7.

This has solved the problem in most cases.

Some posters have suggested an Acer class action.

hi all,
I have an issue with the backlight keyboard. I can change the timeout and decide to turnoff the backlight after 5 seconds (for example), but after any restart It lose the choice made and the backlight always turned to default setting "always turned on" ...
it does not retain the choice made
I have the last drivers and apps available ... I suppose that there is a bug in the version available for my laptop: (quickset) Application_XXJDH_WN32_11.1.32_A00.EXE

Usually the best fix is to replace the keyboard... about $30 to $50.
Try cleaning it thorougly with a can of difluoroethane gas such as dust off, as sometimes they are just dirty.
You might also attempt disconnecting and reseating all relevant cables.

Since the external works, it looks like you're ready for a new keyboard, but to be sure try the onscreen one; Accessories>System Tools>Accessibility>On Screen Keyboard. Also please don't post in bold caps. It's considered shouting. Also use the built in font as your post is quite large. Since your OS is Windows 7 and not 9X, I'm moving the thread there.

The title is a bit odd, so I'll properly explain this one:

In windows XP, I used to make accented characters by pressing ', followed with a or e or i - etc. -->
But now in Windows 7, when I press the ' button, the ' appears on screen already, making it impossible to type accented characters. It will appear as 'a or "a for example, instead of respectively or .

Is there a setting-based solution for this, or is it related to keyboard driver from W7?

Click OK
Select the United States-International for the Default input language

Yet when I go to Devices & Printers I keep get a troubleshooting message and when I go to deal with it all I get is the same repeating message about a "keyboard filter" driver.

Does anyone know what this is and more importantly where I can get it from on hp's website?

Hi,

I am using an Acer 22" widescreen monitor, (x223w) and since I have it I have been getting the "input not supported" error message while booting.
I never took the time to look it up, but today I did. I found lots and lots of solutions, but none fixed it.

What I did learn, is that many people have trouble with this monitor, and get the same error. And in a lot of the cases, it had something to do with the maximum resolution supported by the video card, and the resolution set on the monitor.

I have looked up the maximum res. of my VC, (Nvidia Geforce 8500GT) and it was 2048x1536. So why would the resolution of 1680x1050 bother it?

My OS is Windows XP

Does anyone have a solution for this?
 

A:"input not supported" in boot acer 22" ws monitor

Hi

its not what the video card can output, its what the monitor can handle

If you try to get the monitor to run at a higher rate than it can handle, it wont work and goes blank. this is why XP gives you the 15 seconds to agree to the change....

Hi everybody I suddenly lost the ability to connect to the internet through cable I think it is related to the security update addressing a vulnerability in kerberus http support microsoft com kb I have no idea what it does but I m reasonably sure that it happened just after the update The network connection keeps cycling between quot identifying quot and quot network cable unplugged quot every - seconds I m running windows on an older lenovo laptop and I ve tried rebooting system restore reinstalling the drivers removing lenovo s connectivity program uninstalling the security update manually but all to no avail A thread with a similar problem led me to try changing the quot link speed and duplex quot from quot auto negotiation quot to quot mbps full duplex quot under the advanced tab of the network connection properties this gives me a network connection but no internet access Connecting the cable through the side of the computer changes nothing compared to connection through the docking station I can access the internet just fine through wifi Any ideas Any help will be much appreciated Thanks nbsp

My office just upgraded and I can no longer use Windows XP On this system I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain I had them installed in opposite vertical margins and they "Launchpads", to "Toolbars" for "Docks" (MSese "TASKBARS" NOT add Need were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin and BAM Sorry for the cliche but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up and I just don't think I Need to add "TASKBARS" (MSese for "Launchpads", "Docks" NOT "Toolbars" can be as efficient without anything comparable Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows GUI and it's making me sick with rage I see only the option to put a quot toolbar quot on an existing quot taskbar quot and no option to create any additional taskbars This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient much less cool about this at all I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues but I see none such in W I have tried every google search string that I can think of and found no answer that deals with anything other than adding that stupid toolbar to the only taskbar that Microsoft will allow you in W So If I'm wrong and have missed some options how do I access them Otherwise I'm hoping there are developers who know what I am talking about and have software to enable the creation of separate taskbars launchpads Can anybody help with either

Hello!
Please help me if you can? From time to time, when typing, the only letters that come up are, "a" and "b"! I have a Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000. I checked to see if the program was running ok and it was. I also re-connect the device to the receiver. I then have to log out and re-log in and it seems to help for a bit, then it will do it again! Also, I can type just fine in the Google bar, but not anywhere else (except Notepad). Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
My operating system is Windows XP

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

I have some kind of malware on my system and I need help to remove it.

Symptoms: After performing a web search using google and click my desired site, my browser is usually redirected to one of the following sites: zapmeta, netster, romemaster, stopzilla, toseeka. It's different everytime.

What I've done thus far: I've run Spybot and Ad-Aware during a "safemode" session. These found a lot of "threats," which I removed. This did not fix the problem. I then tried to restore my computer to an earlier date, but that failed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

A:Acer laptop stuck on "ACER" screen.

Unless your laptop is the same model as you girlfriend's - or at least from the same laptop series - your recovery disk won't work, mainly because it will try to install the wrong drivers.

I think your best bet is to try to get it fixed under warranty. You may not need the receipt, you can check the laptop's warranty status here :- https://www.acer-apac.com/acer_web/

I was able to somehow get it off (don't ask me what I did, I couldn't tell you). Now, when I click on "Display" in the Control Panel and go to "Desk Top", the only thing that I can change is the color and I can also click on "Customize Desktop", but I cannot change the background or click on "browse...". Can you help?

A:How to fix "not responding" problem in all programs and "lost updates"

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

That temp file that you mentioned, is it in the root of the system drive?
In other words is it located here: C:\1ee10074....

If that is where it is, then it could be from a .NET update. They do not always remove that randomly named folder. Don't delete it just yet, go inside of it (say continue to the permissions security pop ups). If you find several folders with 4 numbers for the name, then it is probably from an update. Those numbered folders are for different languages. You can delete the folder if you want or just leave it. The folder is not the cause of your problems.

Hello all I'm new here so please bare with me I'm assuming this is the appropriate section of the forum to post this question so here it goes I've just had Windows "mouselook" DPI and spinning Problem modes - and "camera" Home installed over the past months and have now come across a strange problem which seems not uncommon from other Problem - DPI and spinning "camera" and "mouselook" modes posts at various places around the internet The problem is that whenever I'm Problem - DPI and spinning "camera" and "mouselook" modes in a game and any other D related program and I try to move the camera or go Problem - DPI and spinning "camera" and "mouselook" modes into quot mouselook quot - it either goes crazy or the camera starts spinning I've come to learn from researching that the DPI adjustment setting in Display is the culprit as I have mine set to - since my monitor is dual resolution it makes it hard to see the text any lower than that I've tried using compatibility mode telling it to quot Disable DPI quot on high resolutions and have even tried using quot Windows XP scaling quot - to which they have proven to work but not without consequences - causing a good amount of drop in frame rate My question is Does anyone know of a fix or a work around for this other than using the Regedit or Display options as I really don't want to have to change my DPI or have lower FPS Thanks --E

I have "Photo Editor" in my "Office" suite. The "Zoom" and "Select" functions do not activate when I drag them from the Tool Bar. I have the installation CD for "Office." Would I be able to find "Photo Editor" on the CD and do a 'repair' reinstallation? Perhaps there is another solution to the problem.

Your response(s) will be appreciated.

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

It starts in safe mode Ok but does not in normal mode. I have tried system restores to an older point in time but this hasnt resolved my issue.
No new hardware has been added and the last application to be installed was some time ago.
The BSOD is repeatable each time window loads in normal mode.

installed cain and abel.
uninstalled winpcap
installed winpcap (latest version) , unchecked "start driver at startup"
reboot
in /winpcap/ i ran "rpcpad.exe" (which should start the winpcap driver?)

ran wireshark: It can sniff my ethernet adapter but doesnt show the wlan adapter

ran cain and able: it cannot sniff anything + doesnt show wlan adapter.

I think it worked on vista but i?m not 100% sure. Any ideas?

Both cain and wireshark work in win 7 as I am running them on 32bit.

Hi Looking for insight advice re KB According to Infoworld it was quot Optional quot in May but I was not offered it then This KB3054476 "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" offered as week it was offered as quot Important quot and quot Recommended quot but only for one of my Win boxes I have read the MS KB article as well as THIS FORUM THREAD the latter of which includes a report of a BSOD due to this particular update However there isn't much out on the web about it And most of the discussion about it is overly technical for me And I am confused as to why it was previously offered as quot Optional quot but now is quot Important quot KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" or quot Recommended quot I don't think I quot need quot it as I have no webcam on this box And I don't like KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" to tempt fate by fixing things that are not broken So questions Is it safe to install Is it really necessary important Or would I be OK to hide it Thanks very much in advance

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

hi,

OK, this is a weird one.

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

If anyone can offer any advice on this curly issue it would be greatly appreciated.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

I tried to associate the file extension .txt to a new editor program
with the well known cmdline programs ASSOC and FTYPE.

No, assigning them through WinExplorer menu does not work.
But this is another problem which should not discussed here.

When I type now one of the following alternative commands at the CommandPrompt then Win7 returns me something like:

assoc .txt=txtfile

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: .txt"

or

ftype txtfile=D:\notepad++\notepad++.exe "%%1"

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: txtfile"

Why?

The command above work fine under WinXP

I have since formatted the drive and installed Windows 7, but now I get an error stating the above, No Bootable Device, Hit Any Key.

I think I'll need to reinstall whatever partitions etc. Acer had originally setup on there because currently there's no option to find the drive at all.
