Preferred Solution: Acer GN245HQ Settings

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 GN245HQ Settings

Colours are subjective to each display, so must be calibrated separately. Google around for guides.

I do not have recovery discs for Acer Inspire running Windows 7. Holding ALT and F10 does not bring up restore options. Is there any other way I can restore to Factory settings.

A:Acer Inspire restore to factory settings

Switch off. Hold down the Ctrl button and the Alt button then switch back on and keep tapping the f10 button see if that works.

I have been haveing problems with the sims 2 after acedently deleting something I shouldn't have. As a last resort I was preparing to restore my entire computer to factory settings to see if that would help fix the games problem. However I can't seem to do that.
I ran Acer erecovery managmen and click the "restore to factory settings' option. I then get one pop up that said that the prosses would restart my PC then a second asking me to conferm that I wanted to continue. Once I say "Ok" as expected my netbook restarts but once it comes back on nothing has changed. It takes me back to the log in screen, after logging in there is no edvidence that the restoration progrecce is still going on. All the programs I installed are still installed and my files are all still there.
When I ran the restore agian the samething happened.

My D:drive also has acer, but with no recovery options. I have a windows disk, but its for Dell systems, and it warned that I was running a newer version.

You might have erased the recovery partition upon the install of windows 7. I would suggest if you can to pull the hard drive out of it and put it in another laptop, recover it, then put it back in the Asus.

A:Acer laptop will not boot up after restoring to factory settings

I was told that once you reset your unit to factory settings the BIOS might have reset to default settings too. you need to set the parameters again in the BIOS setup by pressing F2. if you're using VISTA, use the SATA or AHDC mode.

The problem is that i cannot change the mode, just the boot order, how do i know what order to put it in?

I have an Acer Aspire 4339, which I tried to restore to factory settings earlier. Apparently, the format failed, and I have to access to my computer whatsoever. Whenever I start up my computer, it starts up as if I had a hard shutdown, assuming that I had a power outage, or something like that. Then, whenever I press any of the choices (Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc) it does the regular "Windows is starting.", but then after that it says "Set up is starting services". Then, a popup appeared saying, "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, reset the installation." How do I restart the installation? I already have discs that have the recovery program on them, but they don't do anything.

Hello,

I am currently trying to fix an Acer laptop for a friend of mine and from what I can tell it looks as if her laptop continues to reset itself back to its original settings. For example, the desktop background goes back to the slandered picture, desktop icons that were once there are gone and programs have to be reinstalled. Neither of us have an exact cause for this issue, except she did mention how she had a router problem within the last week, but I wouldn't see how that would constantly be affecting the laptop itself when the router has been fixed. Every day the computer resets itself and its becoming a frustrating task for her and she's just about given up on it.

Is there, perhaps, a control I could change? Could it be a possible virus or malware issue?

Please help, I'm becoming a little desperate for help myself.

Thank you,
Ashley

A:Reinstall OS on Acer Aspire 5738z Win 7 or reset to factory settings?

If I understood correctly you have an OEM version of Windows 7, and I doubt those iso files will match your product key. However the best way in my opinion is to use the built in recovery manager of Acer, where you create the necessary installation dvds and then perform a clean install. It should take 3-5 dvds to burn them, and you will lose all your data that already exists on the hard drive. Make a backup copy of all your files before proceeding with installation, in this way you will get a fresh drive.
Its a pretty straight forward process and it will install the correct version of your Windows, along with other softwares that came when you purchased it. You have to update the Windows as they are not included in those burned dvds.

I have an Acer Aspire AX3400 desktop running Windows 7 64bit. I have been having all sorts of problems over several months. The machine, when left unattended, appears to be always "recovering from serious error" with subsequent memory dumps. The machine would not shut down without me having to switch it off. Subsequently the machine would not start up properly. iTunes would not open without a reboot etc etc etc. I decided to backup all my data and restore to factory settings. This has failed/ is incomplete. It hung for several hours at different stages of the process. I keep getting the message "Setting up PC for first use" and does not move on from there. I'm unable to run in Safe Mode because the setup hasn't been completed. I have a restore disk but this hasn't helped. Would really appreciate some help.

Did you try to restore from the disc or the recovery partition.

PS: My guess would be that one source of your troubles is iTunes. I have seen a lot of people having trouble with that.

Hi fellow techies!
I'm helping a friend out with her Acer Aspire laptop- it had an issue a while ago, and in the process of trying to figure it out, it seems she accidently restored the factory defaults!
I know Acer usually keeps a "fresh" install backup on a hidden partition, so I think she's over-written her stuff with this.

My question to you guys is... is there any way to undo that? or restore her stuff?
I guess our only hope may be to get ahold of data-recovery software? ( for restoring deleted files)?

Cheers,
Jordan

You are right..there is no undoing it...but with sophisticated software some files can be saved {some of her user files will not have been written over and can be retrieved}....one has to stop using the machine immediately as to prevent further writing though

Hi all,
I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 64-Bit (Windows 7 Home Premium) laptop that I bought before the summer, today a Windows Update has given me an Acer display update published on the 28/12/2011. I thought because I had my vga cable plugged into the TV Windows Update may have become confused but despite checking for updates again it still appears there as optional.

AMD/ATI is recognized by Windows and Windows Update and there had already been a display driver update not so long ago, so I cannnot understand why I'm receiving an update for the wrong machine?

A:Acer - Display - ACER S271HL update on Compaq Presario CQ56 64-Bit

Not actually for AMD/ATI almost monthly you can see a newer update become available and that's why you will see one listed as an optional hardware update for the integrated graphic chips on the laptop.

Since Windows detects the tv you are using as an external monitor that also becomes a detected hardware. If that happens to be an Acer brand tv that would explain why that particular update came about.

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 !!!
Regards Brett.

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

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

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.

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?

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...

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.

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.

If you sign in as "owner" you should be able to remove everything except index.dat if you close all of your browser windows.

The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply.

Hi,
 
Looking for advice on how to find where the touch pad settings may be hidden on this laptop I'm working on? I've looked in the control panel and there is no icon for touch pad and I've looked in the mouse settings without finding any options to change the settings for the touch pad? The laptop is an acer Aspire 5520-5912 running Vista Home Premium Service pack 2. Any ideas?

A:Can't find touch pad settings in Control Panel/Mouse settings anywhere?

Hi loki2007 Usually, Windows install it's own Microsoft Legacy Drivers for a touchpad on a laptop, and these drivers doesn't enable the "Advanced" settings that allows you to control the touchpad. In order to do that, you have to install the laptop touchpad drivers which will add that tab in the Mouse options.Download and install these drivers:http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/TouchPad/Touchpad_Synaptics_9.1.16_Vistax86.zip?acerid=633639058794305220&Step1=NOTEBOOK&Step2=ASPIRE&Step3=ASPIRE%205520&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_4Let me know if they install or not.

Hi,
Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.
 

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

I'm having trouble with the Crystal Eye's picture-taking. I turn it on (works just fine) but when I click the "take picture" button, it briefly shows up in the gallery bar underneath and disappears. I can't for the life of me figure out where it is sending them or why they are not staying in the gallery below the pictures like they used to. I can't find any way to adjust or figure out where they are being sent to.

Thanks for any help ,

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.

A:Lost settings, New user made in Documents and Settings

Hiya asd123321.

It sounds like you`ve re-installed the system from CD over the top of an existing system, giving you a fresh `Dave`. Have you recently run a repair or indeed, done a clean install ?

As a work-around, can you take the documents & favourites from the old `Dave` and put them in the new `Dave` so at least you`re back up and running again.

A:Need To Update Flash? What Settings In Settings Manager?

1. I cant help you with this one but I will say that most companies recommend their newest versions because they usually include security patchs or other updates.2. I'm not a hundred percent clear on what your asking here but you click the link on this site here to download the installer.http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/do...mp;promoid=BIOWWhen it is completely finished downloading, doubleclick the installer icon.Or maybe you were looking specifically for thishttps://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:7Its the second one down. This is the flash player firefox add-on from the Mozilla website.*****I just checked the second link, it only redirects you to the first one.3. I would set all of the options you can to ask. That way if a legitimate Flash object is used you can approve it. If you typing an email (for example) and a suspicious flash alert pops up, you can kill it by denying it. (A small popup box will appear each time a flash object is present. Under the storage options it is up to you how much data you allow to be stored on your computer. I would recommend that you allow no data to be stored. The downside to this is that the Flash videos may take longer to load.For the next two tabs I would set these at Ask again for the reasons stated above. The automatic updates are a preference issue. For Privacy Settings, again I would set all to ask. I frequent youtube, so I set that site only to always allow.For the final storage setting option, again, Always Ask. I made another exception here for youtube. This, I found, make youtube faster while streaming.4. If you open up internet explorer and go to http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about/ it will tell you your flash player version in a small grey box in the middle of the page.Hope i pointed you in the right direction.

I'm on Windows 8.1 and I can't find this for the life of me (metro/modern UI settings).
Had made all of it pink at some point in the past, and don't use it much. Now I want to change it to a different colour because I plan to use it.

I open "Computer Settings" from the "charm bar", and for people making videos about it on Youtube, they have "Personalize" as the first option you see.

I can't find it. Clicking on Personalization inside the Modern UI opens up the regular Control Panel which doesn't have the modern bits in it.

When I do manage to open Personalization, it has only avatar, desktop and lock screen.

Just to clarify what I mean, I want to change the colour that's cerise/pink in the picture below.
Any tips appreciated!

A:Opening the settings for metro/modern UI settings

Hello Martienne,

Be sure that you are on your Start screen when you open the Settings charm to see Personalize.

The pinkish color on the left side of your screenshot would be the accent color you select.

If you like, Option One in the tutorial below will give more details to help.

i connected my laptop to wifi, for first few days everything went fine but suddenly one day my every(edge,chrome,firefox) browser showed a connection error saying 'unable to connect to the proxy server' i searched to internet and came to know about the proxy settings on LAN tab ( to uncheck the same ). i did unchecked and it worked !! but not for too long after a bit of surfing again the browser refused to connect with the same problem and when i again went to the LAN tab in internet options i found that the 'use proxy' was checked...... now thats unusual!.   so.... whenever i am to surf the internet i must uncheck the proxy button again and again.i have also noticed that my browser homepage is also changed to some malicious ad website... please help!

My brother's computer does exactly what the title of this thread says,no matter what mode he uses to boot up. He was restarting his computer after running Ad-aware. Now he cant get past the logon screen because it immediately saves his settings and returns to the logon screen. Happens in safe mode as well.

Thank you for any help.

I hope this isn't dumb sounding but I was wondering if Acer would be one of the top 5 laptop manufacturers? I am looking at the Acer Ferrari 4000 laptop for school and I was just wondering. I know that Toshiba is very good but for the price the Ferrari seemed like a great, great deal. Another question I would have is if anyone has the new Acer Ferrari 4000 please post and tell me how you like it. I would really trust to hear something from someone here then at Newegg.

Thanks,
Infinity
 

A:Acer in Top 5? (Acer Ferrari 4000)

I wouldn't look at the maker to the degree that you are. Acer is a name brand so you should not have any problems. I would concentrate on specs. As for the Ferarri it is a very powerful and good looking notebook, and it got excellent reviews. I would highly recomend the ferarri, it's deffinately going to be my next notebook.

i am unable to access "keyboard" settings when i bring up the right handside settings bar, it seems to be grey'ed out and unable to click on it. help

A:Keyboard settings not highlighted in settings bar (right)

Hello Max, and welcome to Eight Forums.

On a desktop, the Keyboard option in the Settings charm is used to select a language or keyboard input method when you have more than one added. If you don't, then Keyboard will be grayed out and nonfunctional.

Input Methods - Add or Remove for Keyboard Layout in Windows 8

and/or

Language - Add or Remove in Windows 8
If you have a touchscreen, then the Keyboard option will have an option to open the Touch keyboard and handwriting panel in addition to the above.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Any selected user starts loading personal settings and jumps immediately to save personal settings and returns to the welcome screen.

Had an attack by Antivirus 2009 and am trying to runMalwarebytes mbam-setup.exe from a flash drive.

I can get into safe mode by pressing F8 when booting up but not sure how to proceed from there.

I Need Help!
I was wondering if it is a issue to delete files in "Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temp". I am really looking if it is safe to delete the "Documents and Settings\Kenny Hartwick\Local Settings\Temp" files.

Thanks!

A:Should I Delete "Documents and Settings\Username/Local Settings\Temp"

I don't know who Kenny Hartwick is, but deleting temp files is NOT a problem. Just get his permission, willya.

:)

edit: if you click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup you'll run a nice little routine that lets you select those, among other, files to remove as well as a file compactor for rarely used files.

Hi I m hoping I m posting this at the right place if not please move A week ago my girlfriends laptop started giving an error "ACER" laptop Acer screen. stuck on message on boot saying quot No bootable device press any key quot I tried a number of suggestions I found posted online to similar issues but to no avail I didn t want to completely reset the machine since it was still under warranty so I figured if we just submitted it for repair someone might be able to save more of her files However girlfriend lost the warranty receipt We gave up searching today so I went back in to try and reset it I couldn t access the recovery partition of the hdd and gf didn t make a recovery disc So I decided to try a reset using a recovery drive I made from my own Acer laptop which like hers came with win This seemed to work so I let it do it s thing I checked back on it a while later and it was on but when I checked again it was stuck on the quot ACER quot boot screen It was stuck on there for a couple of hours not responding to any key input When I restarted it by holding power button to turn it off first it again got stuck on the Acer screen If I m quick enough I can get into BIOS during boot but not once it s stuck on the acer screen Do you have any ideas what I can do try to get this thing working again Specs Acer Aspire e - Windows HDD Toshiba MQ ABD nbsp

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/

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.
 

A:Acer Aspire screen problem and only boot to Acer screen

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.
