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 had Windows 8 when I purchased this laptop. I upgraded to Windows 10 later on. Recently, the laptop had been giving trouble when installing some Windows 10 update (specifically KB3172729). Right now, it won't boot Windows at all and I am looking to do a clean installation of Windows 10. The problem is I don't have the key. Is it possible to find out the key for either Windows 8/8.1/10?

So, I've recently purchased this new desktop computer, and, let it be no secret that I am no techy. My internet is slow, speedtest shows 1.6MB download speed, however that is proven to be a lie, as my downloading speed is being overhauled by a crippled snail.

Any help, advice, or so forth would be much appreciated. All I know is that I disabled IPv6, did the command prompt line that was suggested (Yes, my speedtest result got better, other than that, nothing happened)

I'm using the wireless card that is inside the case; 802.11n Wirelss LAN Card.
All drivers are up to date.

Disabled MacAffee firewall and installed a different one (AvG) nothing changed.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Please try the following:

Disable McAfee completely, click on Start and type msconfig, in Services Tab uncheck or disable any McAfee Services, test your connection after.

Also, see if it makes any difference if you are logged on in Safe Mode in Networking. Restart your computer, tap F8 and select this option.

An update will be appreciated.

In general I do not do BIOS updates without a reason. I also wait about a month for new updates (Win 10 is annoying that way) If it is working well, don't fix it. The R5-471T I have here is on BIOS 1.03.

After downloading the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to my R5-471T-51UN laptop, my Logitech M535 Bluetooth mouse will no longer re-connect after either a power-cycle of the mouse or a reboot of the laptop; I have to re-pair the mouse with the laptop every time I want to use it. Uninstalling and re-installing the most current available version of the Bluetooth driver has no effect. I suspect that there is a compatibility problem with the Bluetooth driver and the Anniversary Update because: - I didn't have this problem prior to the installation of the Anniversary Update- My Logitech mouse does not require its own driver- When I turn off the mouse with the Windows Bluetooth dialog open, the status goes from "Connected" to "Driver error" to "Paired" Would appreciate any additional troubleshooting advice that I might be overlooking, or (preferably) an estimate as to when a fixed Bluetooth driver will be made available.

Hi, I have noticed that my acer aspire R14 (R5-471T) (i7 version) records fake touches when brighness is set on highest. Initially I had no idea why it was happening but after a while I noticed this pattern. Since, I don't keep brightness on highest level, this is not a very big issue for me but I though it would be good to let the community know. I may be wrong and it might be issue just with my unit.

A:Aspire R5 471T-71W2 windows 7 USB problem

as far as i know, windows 7 doesn't have a native USB3.0 support by the way on your laptop an USB 2.0 (the one not blu) is available and this, normally works under windows 7. if you still have issues, you could try to create a slipstream version with some embedded drivers, nLite will help you do it (it's free):https://www.ntlite.com/http://www.askvg.com/download-nlite-for-windows-7-windows-8-and-windows-8-1/

Hi, I have a problem with my Aspire R5-471T in which I have no internet, and when I try to set-up a connection it says "Windows did not detect any networking hardware". I tried re-installing the drivers, and even doing a full reinstall via the "Reset" option. The laptop was having some issues for finding the internet connection in the past days but then it found it, but now it doesn't work at all.Any ideas or suggestions? Might it be a real hardware issue? Because I don't know what else to do on the driver side.

So recently I need to get a Sony Tie Clip Microphone to work on my Acer Aspire R3-471T laptop, however, as there is only one audio jack, I do not know how to connect the microphone so the laptop identifies it as a microphone. I do recall very slightly a notification asking me which device Apple headphones where and maybe seeing a microphone option.  I cannot seem to find anyway to get the laptop to recognize the mic as a microphone and I would prefer not a purchase an audio apparatis if it can be avoided. Is there anyway to do this? or am I just spending time pulling out hair on a fruitless task?

A:External microphone trouble (Aspire R3-471T)

Hello, You need a cable to separate the headphone/microphone plugs. E.g this kind of product.You'll have the microphone input with this one.

Intel has a stable driver release dated 3/8/2016 for HD520 graphics. The i5-6200U found in this laptop is specifically mentioned. This driver can not be installed on the 471T by any traditional/standard means. Acer needs to package a newer driver release for this laptop desperately. Doesn't matter what I do, this machine is plagued with constant GPU driver crashes, especially while browsing the web (browser choice doesn't matter). This is a WIDELY KNOWN issue with skylake laptops, and is largely solved by a driver update, but this can not be done without an Acer packacged driver release. Running 5 months behind schedule on driver releases is not even reasonable. Shame on you Acer. If you want to be taken seriously get this done now. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25818/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-10-15-40-

Hello everyone. As the title says, i have problems with both shutdown and hibernate procedures. There are many times when i try to shutdown or hibernate the laptop, the screen turns black, but the laptop still works, and it won't shutdown/hibernate, which forces me to close the laptop from the power button. Some of the times it works. So if anyone knows what the problem might be...it would be amazing. Thank you and a good day.

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

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.

The Windows 10 key is electronically injected into the computer. Windows 10 should automatically be activated if you have the Acer OEM operating system installed. It is possible that something was not done right when the product was refurbished that is causing activation issues. My suggestion is to try activating by phone using the instructions on http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/26289. If that is unsuccessful, you may need to contact the company you bought the refurbished system through, to see how they can assist. If they can't help, send me a private message with your serial number.

I bought an Acer Aspire R11 (R3-131T-P73T) about a month ago, (runs on Windows 10) and today when it was plugged in to charge (and left all day to do so), I realised it was not charging. It was on 8% bettery when it started charging and had not charged one bit, even though when I turned it on, it said that it was plugged in & charging. I stopped charging it for about a minute to let it go down to 7% to try again, but when I plugged it again the battery percentage did not go up at all. This happened very suddenly, as all other times when it needed to be charged, I have had no problems with it, so this is quite confusing.What do I do? I noticed previous discussions about earlier models, is there a similar way to fix this?Please help, and thankyou in advance if you have a solution.

Ran into the same problem with an HP laptop several months ago, turned out that one of the wires supplying the inverter had worked loose from the plastic terminator.

So since you have verified that the screen itself is not the issue, it sounds like an inverter or backlight issue. This site helped me out with that laptop.

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.

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.

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 !!!

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.

Another regret to add to my experiences... Purchased this desktop from Amazon.  No information, that i can find, on the Acer Support pages.What kind of warranty do I have after the 30 day Amazon warranty period lapses? How might I find details on the motherboard?  I would like to add RAM and a M.2 SATA3 SSD.How can I determine the motherboard speed?  Can I add 2400Mhz RAM or does it have to be 2133 only?How can I determine if the BIOS is truely up to date, if the model does not appear in the Support sections? Has any one else on hear bought this from Amazon? Have you found motherboard information? from where?

If you are unable to get it to power on at all, I recommend contacting Acer technical support. If you just purchased the system, you can check with the retailer you bought it from, to see what assistance they can offer.

I installed it but when I put on the laptop it gets stuck in an automatic repair loop, I have the free Windows 10 - it originally had Windows 7.I have tried to remove the old RAM and only use the new one but I still have the same problem.It starts says Auto Repair, goes to a blue error screen (different error messages - Bad memory, bad pool header, system thread exception not handled) and then restarts.I initially thought there was a problem with the RAM, I sent it back and got a new one but still having the same problem.When I remove the new RAM everything starts up fine.Am I missing something here?

You might be better off populating both slots with a 2x2GB or 2x4GB matched-set arrangements. You also might have better compatibility with crucial ram offerings specific to your particular Acer model. Jack E/NJ

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.

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.

I have tried everything I can think of I have already read through a few other threads with the same issue but none of the fixes work for me It gets to the acer screen logo not boot Acer will Acer Aspire E15 past loads that little loading circle then it just goes black I have tried pushing Alt F and it got to the acer screen and said please wait then the screen went black again I have installed Windows on a USB drive and have went into the bios and enabled the boot menu as well as change the order Acer Aspire E15 will not boot past Acer logo of the boot to the USB This got me a bit closer but still stuck After about minutes it finally went to a purple screen and a window popped up asking to install I selected my language and clicked install it went to another screen that says setup is starting and it's been sitting this way for about minutes now I'm out of ideas Don't have a clue why this is going on This is a friend of mines computer he said he was in the middle of playing a game and the laptop froze then something came up and then it shut off When it booted up it wouldn't load past the acer screen

A:Acer Aspire E15 will not boot past Acer logo

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.

I hate IE9, but in previous versions if you tapped the ALT key it showed the menu bar. Does that still work in IE9?

Also, IIRC, ALT-A brought up the favorites menu.
