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 7520 boot loop

Sounds like a mobo problem. could be a capacitor bubbled up and leaked, could be a short on the board, could be a crossed/not grounded pin. I would see if it has any warranty.

I just bought an Acer Aspire 7520 (exhibition piece, used - like new) and received it in the post yesterday morning. After a whole day of running fine, I used a friend's T-Mobile Web'n'Walk usb dongle later in the day and about halfway through install the system froze (except for cursor motion, I couldn't click on anything). I forced a restart, and after the initial boot screen it was left on an almost completely black screen with a white blinking underscore in the top left corner, even left for a while this didn't change.

I've tried restoring default settings in the f2 Boot Menu, leaving the system shut down over night, but nothing else so far as I don't want to damage it further.

Please help!

It could be a fault with the motherboard. Take it in to a laptop repair shop and ask them to check it out and give you an estimate for cost of repair.

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.
Does anyone know what i could do. on other sites said about using the eRecovery but not 100% on using it.. any help to get my laptop back to its original state would be helpful thanks

System details if help
64X2 dual core processor with 1 gb ram. 32bit os vista

A:Acer Aspire 7520 OS Vista

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.

Hi can someone please help. I have an Aspire 7520 laptop and want to use it wirelessly on my router, it will not connect or even pick up the signal. I have no problems when i connect via the patch lead. i have uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless driver and i have checked to make sure i have an upto date driver as well. I run off vista, whats confusing me (doesn't take much) is that it was ok when i had my bt router but then changed to sky and it hasn't worked since.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated

I have a Acer Aspire 7520 laptop that used to have Vista installed. I've been playing with it some and installed Ubuntu some time back. 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. I haven't changed any of the original hardware and have reformatted the drive with both fat and ntsf but get the same problems with hardware message.

Hi there pals!
I have a problem with an Acer Aspire 7520 laptop which gives me distorted colors on the screen. Could it be overheating? I cleaned the fan and the cooler, but to no avail. Could it be the video card? If yes, is it worth fixing or not?
Anticipated thanks.

I've replaced my Hdd for a larger Capacity as the old unit died.

When trying to boot and install Vista from my DVD. It does not run to install, yet if I put the DVD into my PC it will auto-run and try to install.

The boot order is Hdd, DVD, USB etc, etc.

Why will it not boot on the Acer yet it will on my PC.

Tried an XP DVD yet that will try to install on my Acer.

any clues as what I can do to make it boot or Re-burn a DVD with some mods.

thanks

A:Reformating my computer to out of box state, locked when finding partition, wont boot

Installing any version of Windows using anything but the Recovery Disks for the particular PC generally overwrites the special MBR the system uses to access the Recovery Partition at boot. Or if Win 7 added it's System Reserved partition when it was installed, the BIOS may simply be looking at the wrong place now.

If you didn't create the Recovery Disk Set, you can contact Toshiba to see if they have them available for your model, and what it might cost, if anything. Usually pretty cheap.

You might be able to use a Win 7 Recovery Environment CD to run Startup repair and get it able to boot back into Windows though.
You can download an ISO of the Win 7 RW disk from here:

That is what those messages are basically telling you. It hasn't found a hard drive

Remove and reseat the hard drive and see if they go away.

You may be able to boot from a CD or USB and test the hard drive if it is recognised.

My Aspire 5600U wont start up. When I turn it on it goes to the Acer Logo screen in about 10 seconds then it does nothing. I can't get it to go into safe mode. The cd drive will spin when a cd is put into it but can't get windows to load. I can not find the windows cd or any cd that came with it. Is there any way of getting software onto a thumb drive or external hard drive? I don't know what to do. Any help is appreciated

My laptop started showing signs of trouble last year. At first, it would go blue screen while I was using. I neglected that. Then, It started turning off if shaken. Now it turned of after I picked it up, and it's been dead nomather what I do.
I tried unplugging everything, including power supply, discharged flea power, but nothing happened...
When I press the on button, the LED light up as they should. The screen remains dead. After about 10 seconds, the battery LED and the CD LED start pulsing on and off (around 1Hz). The fan also follows the LEDs, accelerating and decelerating... No beep is heard.
What could it be? How can I test it?
Warranty is long gone.

i recently bought an acer aspire m1640 off of someone. But when i turned it on it made a loud EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE noise. I narrowed down frow where the noise is coming fom and its coming from the lower right corner of the motherboard. Its not from the hard drive or any of the fans. it seems that its coming from a small cylinder with a hole on top of it and there is a small lithium ion battery next to it. Does anyone know whats wrong or how to fix it???
 

A:acer aspire wont boot noise EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

The EEEEEE noise you are referring to is coming from yur motherboard onboard speaker, and is a series of high pitched beeps. I;ve looked at the board maual and it does not refer to the different beep combinations it has.

Try powering up the Pc with the top off the case and check things such as the CPU fan is running, check all hardware is seated correctly as it more than likely will be some form of hardware failure. Also try replacing the CMOS battery (the small lithium ion battery you mentioned)

Hi all I'm hoping someone can give me a little help. Windows 10 needed to do a large update and I could'nt create enough space on the drive for this so I decided to do a system reset rather than uninstall everthing to create the space. As it stands now when powering on the logo screen comes on for a while then goes off and comes back on this loops indefinitely. So this is what I've tried:I can access the BIOS and have moved boot from USB FDD to the top because it made me feel betterCreated a windows 10 boot drive but it won't boot from it.Alt F10 takes me to recovery page which tells me its broke and required media is missingI can acces boot manager but the only option is to boot with windows boot managerAny help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Aspire E 11 wont boot past Acer logo

the first bootable device must be windows boot manager. if your windows 10 installation media is not booting, that means is not UEFI compatible. download the windows 10 iso file using the official Microsoft tool:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 once done, use Rufus to create the bootable USB flash drive, use the settings in its website main page:rufus.akeo.ie/?locale=en_US plug the USB to your laptop, press F12 at boot and choose the USB flash drive.

Recently Ive had an issue where my V5 just shut off out of nowhere and would not boot up. I would do the battery reset, and sometimes it would work, other times it wouldnt. The times where I have been able to get it toboot up, I'd use it for a few minutes and then it would again randomly shut off. Now it seems to be stuck in a constant cycle of getting to the Acer screen,and shutting off. It will not get past this screen, and I cannot access the BIOS... computer will not stay on long enough. Battery is good and takes a full charge, cooling fan works, and I hear the HDD start to spin. Could it be a bad MB? Thanks

I have tried looking through each line for 925 and find NOTHING. I did find like Multimedia 945 that seems to have the same specs as my FIL's, but not sure if that memory would be compatible or if really a 925 exists and I read something wrong.....or SOMETHING!

A:Computer wont boot, wont boot in safe mode, wont load repair centre

Hello there,
 
It seems like you did not perform a clean installation of Windows and that's why your system is acting up. 
 
Follow the steps below to install a new copy of Windows:
 
1. To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation you will need to start or boot your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive. Insert your Windows 7 disc in your CD/DVD drive. Please note: will need to restart or turn on your system with the disc in the drive. 
2. After turning on your system with the CD in the drive go ahead and press any key when prompted during your computer post routine and then follow the instructions presented on screen. If you don’t see this go back to step 1 to setup your BIOS to boot from CD or USB flash drive depending on your installation media.
3. On the Install Windows page simply enter your preferences and click next.
 
4. Accept the Windows license agreement.
 
5. On the “Which type of installation do you want” page go ahead and choose the “Custom” option.
 
6. Select Drive options (advanced) on the “Where do you want to install Windows” page.
 
7.  Select the partition that you want to change, choose the formatting option you want to perform and then follow the instructions.
When allocating space choosing the default MB size for your drive is typically the best for most users since you want to take full advantage of all your disk space.
 
8. Click “Next” for the installation to proceed.
 
Hope this helps!

When WMP does a lookup it reads a database of existing commercial CDs. You can look up an individual track and it give you a list of albums that track is on and you pick one. So you can give a track the commercial CD info, if you want something other than that then you have to do it manually.

I am considering purchasing a desktop computer from amazon -- model: Acer Aspire ATC-780-UR61.  The general specs look good for a basic home/office computer but I am reluctant to buy because the computer doesn't seem to have any existence outside of Amazon. It's not offered for purchase anywhere else. There are no reviews by truly independent reviewers. The official Acer site offers very little information beyond add copy. There doesn't even seem to be an owners' manual beyond a general Aspire manual!  So, is this some sort of special model?  Any reason I might want to avoit it? Any opinions or insights appreciated.  Thanks much.

Info on 7B STOP errors...http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm, scroll down to 7B in left column.

IMO, you have compounded the situation by using a "downloaded" version of Windows, since I suspect that such may contain embedded malware as part of the package.

Any number of things may have caused the initial hang, as you can see by reading the data at the Aumha website.

Hi adya,

Vista does not use any dos boot files, you will need to find xp ones for this purpose...I also doubt you can properly update your bios using a USB drive as this is highly unsupported and untested, It would be better to use a floppy disk but you should have access to a windows based bios flash program, check your motherboard manufacturer website as they usually have one available

I'm unsure if this is the correct place but here goes:
I recently formatted my system [2 weeks ago] & just now noticed that when I open a folder containing MP3's, the ID3 tag info [artist & album title] doesn't show when I've set my 'view' to Tiles.

Even in Details view it's the same. I never noticed this until now so I can't confirm it's been happening all along but I can't see what would suddenly cause this.

My only possible clue is that I used the command prompt to disable media & picture previews from loading (regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll & regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll) since it was causing explorer to crash whenever I opened a folder containing videos.

I'd be very grateful if someone could offer any suggestion as to how I can fix this.

Hello, new to the forums and having a problem with WMP11 in Windows XP. I am trying to go digital with my album collection and am ripping the cd in WMP. However, when I insert the CD, it says album artist song are all unknown. I can right click and go to find album info and it updates fine that way. But I would like it to update automatically, obviously, so I can just pop em in and let it go.

I have gone into 'More Option' > 'Privacy' and checked 'update music files by retrieving media info from the internet'. and the 'Library' tab and clicked 'Retrieve additional information from the internet' and 'Rename Music files using Rip music setting'.

I am not sure what to do from here. Thanks in advance for any help.

A:My computer wont detect disks *more info in thread*

Welcome Frank,

CD/DVD drives are pretty cheap these days, and pretty cheaply built in most cases. It has probably failed and needs to be replaced. If you have access to one you could borrow and try out, this would confirm it for you. A new CD/DVD drive is about $20 CDN, probably cheaper in the states. As long as this isn't a laptop we're talking about, then they're more expensive.

Hi there I just want to ask some questions. Im having a problem with my aspire switch 10E. Last night i tried to reset my device. My OS is Windows 10 Home. And now it wont turn on. Ive read some articles about doing the press and hold the power button and it still wont turn on. I even performed it with the volume button and it still has the same result. Sometimes it will turn on then afterwards it will just froze to a grayish screen, Most of the the time its just a light indicator but im having a black screen. There was one instance where it showed the Acer logo so i tried pressing the F2 button but to no avail it will just come back to black screen. What can I do to fix the problem? Thanks

A:Aspire Switch 10 E wont turn on

power + volume UP with AC charger connectedsometimes you need to keep pressing both for about 30-40 seconds and this must be done with no LED light on on power button before pressing both buttons. this normally let you boot to BIOS and then exit to windows boot.if you are able to enter BIOS but not windows, maybe you can try to create a windows 10 bootable media and try boot from it:.here you can download and then create a windows 10 USB bootable media:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Hi efrain. Welcome to TSF!

Do you have your XP system CD? If so, try booting with it and select REPAIR when you get that option. That will bring you to the Recovery Console. When you get to the command window prompt, type "fixboot" and then "fixmbr" and then type "exit". Try rebooting your system and see if that works for you.

Good day!

Hi,

As you have made an OTLPE boot disk lets try booting with it:
Reboot the infected system using the boot CD you just created.
Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
you will find an icon on the desktop called OTLPE > Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
When asked "Do you wish to load the remote registry", select Yes
When asked "Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning", select Yes
Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
OTL should now start. Change the following settingsChange Drivers to Safe List
Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
/md5start
iaStor.sys
nvstor.sys
atapi.sys
nvata.sys
iastorv.sys
/md5stop

Press Run Scan to start the scan.
When finished, the file will be saved**in drive C:\OTL.txt
Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
Please post the contents of the C:\OTL.txt file in your reply.

Last night I updated windows 8.1 from windows 8.
It got to the stage where it needs to restart so it done that started the configarations and once it reached 100% it restarted.

Since then what happens is when i press power on the samsung logo comes on the screen then the black screen with the windows picture then the bsod comes up for around half a second and it restarts. then it constantly does this.

The whole cycle only takes a few seconds.

Ive tried booting in safe mode but this isnt working so I downloaded kav rescue on another computer and saved it on a flash drive, But it wont boot off this either.

Any ideas?

Just got home with a new Acer Aspire with a matshita dvd ram uj-85js.

Tray wont open, either by pressing the eject button or by going to
'my compute'r and selecting 'eject'.

I assume there is no disc in the tray as the machine is new.

Note that this unit has no paperclip pinhole.

Any advice appreciated.

Natty.

I picked up an Aspire E15 Start (ES1-512-C96S) on 4-23-15. I havent done much excpet download iTunes and OpenOffice.  I have put a audio CD and a DVD into it and nothing is being read. I hear the motor spin yet nothing appears on laptop (no info of any kind). So am I missing a driver software or have i need to activate a driver software?

I just received the Aspire E15 today, and there are 2 major issues. First, it is supposed to have 500 GB and from what we can tell, it only has 28.5. The second is that windows 10 wont activate. I have tried to contact support at phone number and email, but i have not received any response. Need help ASAP!!
