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.)

Hello,

I have an Acer Extensa 5420 computer and the operating system installed is Vista.

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 ,
Sasha
 

A:Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam for a Acer Extensa 5420

On my Acer, the webcam pics are saved to the Pictures folder in my user account folder.

If they aren't there, I suggest you try re-installing the webcam driver. You can download it from Acer's website. Select the appropriate website for your country here: http://www.acer.com/worldwide/support/

Dear all,

I can't find on acer.com Windows 7 drivers for my Extensa 4620; Could it be that Acer does not provide its drivers?

Pls advise.

More likely that all the drivers you'll need are already built into Windows 7. Perform a clean install of Windows 7 and see for yourself. Do not upgrade from Vista -- that is the source of most issues on this board. Thanks!

My acer extensa 5630 laptop cannot start up, when I press F2 it's asking for a password. What password do I need to entermessage edited by Kwaramb

A:Acer extensa cannot start up

You need either the BIOS password you provided when you bought the machine or the password you provided for the desktop, in either event we are unable to provide password assistance here due to the difficulty in proving ownership. You are best advised to contact your local Acer distributor for help and be prepared to provide proof of ownership.

I have an Acer Extensa 5420 laptop running windows Vista home premium.
I am having a recent issue with it.
i was trying to use Windows DVD Maker to burn a dvd and after about 5 minutes of it encoding, the whole computer shut down no errors or shut down screen. it just shut down.
i have also experienced this problem with Reel Deal Slots: Ghost Town.
i was in the middle of playing and again it just shut down with no warning or errors.
it has not done this with any other programs i have.
is there a fix for this?

A:acer extensa laptop help

well i think i figured it out. i urned the computer over and took the bottom off and took the fan out and cleaned it. and the heatsink had about a quarter inch of dust buildup. so now everything runs fine.
i guess that windows dvd maker must be a big program that makes the computer get too hot. as for the reel deal game i guess thats the same. must be too much graphics and video and it gets hot as well.
anyway i can now burn DVD's again without a shutdown.

A:Vista & Acrobat 6 on Acer Extensa

If you have to use Acrobat you should at least be using the latest which is up to version 9,

Adobe - Adobe Reader Download - All versions

if for no other reason than this,

Attackers gun for Adobe flaw

Another option is to use Foxit instead,

Foxit Software

free like Reader, but far far lighter on the system (probably find more feature rich than Acrobat as well).

they thought it was broke and went out and bought something new. lol.. I have a feeling it works fine, just overloaded with junk... tons of programs, files, and spyware.

think I'm going to just reformat the drive from the recovery partition and start fresh... and since I dont' need a laptop, this may hit ebay. need some money for car repairs...

A:acer extensa 5620. how old is this laptop?

I don't know from what year that model is based, but as it says here, http://panam.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Extensa5620/Extensa5620sp2.shtml, they first appeared with Windows XP. And as it says here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acer_Extensa, The 5620 is the fifth latest model.
So my guess would be anywhere between 2005 and 2008.

It's not the most accurate answer, but I hope that it helps!

Hi all, just wanted to ask you all for any suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Shut down my laptop as normal lastnight, went to start it this morning and nothing.. the battery light says its fully charged but if i take the battery out and try using it with just the power adapter to start no lights at all come on and of course it doesn't start. I have checked the power adapter with multimeter and its putting out correct voltage.

I am out of warranty by 2 months

Also how do i find the switch that indicates whether the lid is open or not?
and where is the reset button located?

Thanks in advance for any helpful information

A:Acer Extensa 5635G won't start up

If you're getting the right readings for the power adapter then it might be a motherboard that's gone south. Try pushing the power button for 20 seconds and release. Then after a few more seconds push it again and see if it comes on..

When Power button is pressed, PC tries to start, power & hard drive lights lite, fan starts, screen remains black, then after a few seconds the PC shuts down, then it repeats this same startup attempt again once more, then shuts off and stays off. I thought it was a power adapter or battery problem, so I have replaced both, but the exact same problem continues. This is a 6 year old PC that was working great before it was stored for approx 4 months in it's case. Have tried the power Reset process with no change. Removed rear panel and blew some dust out of fan, no change. When power adapter is plugged in, the battery charging light is lit green. Any ideas out there?
 

A:Acer Extensa 5420 won't power up

You could try replacing the button cell battery on the motherboard, or maybe even just leave it plugged in with power overnight and see if that works.

Good day all,
I just bought an acer extensa 5220 notebook (XP Pro). I have not used it yet for work. It had Norton Internet security (trial version) installed. I prefer to use McAfee AV. I installed McAfee and restarted my notebook. However, i did not uninstall Norton. When notebook started up again it restarted after startup, it kept doing this over again, first showing blue screen before restarting (but too fast so i couldn't read the error message). So, i booted into safe mode and restored back to the time before McAfee was installed. It is stable for now.
My questions are:
Do you think my problem was because of not uninstalling Norton first?
Was i correct in using system restore (what are the repercussions if not)?
Does my notebook model support McAfee AV or was i wrong to try to install it and should stick with Norton?

I am grateful for any help. Thank you

A:Acer Extensa 5620 Upgrade OS from XP to Windows 8....

There's a good chance that the Windows 7 driver may work with Windows 8, but the only way to find out it to try it & see. If there are any issues, you should get an error message informing you that the driver isn't compatible, or it may appear to install but just not work! If that is the case, then try IOBits Driver Booster Free - it might be able to find a compatible driver. If it doesn't, then you may have to forgo the card reader....!

Hi I am trying to fix my friends acer it had vista on it At first it would not start properly after a few attempts it started but it kept beeping and restarting then i ran anti virus on it and it became more stable It got worse after that though i have ended up wiping it and using killdisc to erase everything I 5220 malfunctioning extensa Computer Acer have then tried to re install vista but even in bios the keyboard has a life of its own It keeps flicking across the bios options but itself I forgot to mention earlier that this was the case as well before i wiped it even with another keyboard attached I taught it might be the cmos battery going Acer extensa 5220 Computer malfunctioning but that's in an awkward place ill have to dismantle the computer So i want to leave that option till last I think it might be the motherboard Acer extensa 5220 Computer malfunctioning also maybe its damaged The computer looks fine but my friend said it had been in the shed for a while as it wasn't been used I dont know what kind of shed how insulated it was so im thinking maybe the computer might have got damp I see no visible signs of dampness though Has any one had a similar experience before Any help would be greatly appreciated of coarse Kind Regards John

I had this behavior in a Toshiba laptop. Replacing the keyboard (about $20 US) fixed the problem for me.

Can you disable the keyboard in the BIOS, then use an external, USB keyboard?

If you are experiencing random wifi drops and you are using the OEM operating system, try uninstalling the empowering eLan management software. If the problem persists, then it could be a router issue and would suggest trying to connect to another network and see if the problem duplicates.

My laptop has turned itself off three days this week. After rebooting I am unable to access local or internet connections via my local wireless service with Centurylink. Their tech assures me that it's not the modem and tells me it has to be my computer. The W-Lan Driver and Ethernet Drivers are being deleted. I have had to restore my entire system from the day before each time to correct this probllem. Hoping someone has a suggestion. Thanks

Hi Guys,

I have a Notebook with the Operating System - Vista. The Machine is an Intel Celeron 1.6 Mhz and runs with 1.0 Gb Ram. We have used this Operating System for some and now need to install the Windows XP Operating system, since it is User Friendly. Infact, we have downloaded the Drivers too. However, when we tried to install the WinXP Operating System, there was an error at the Time of Loading the System of restarting Computer as follows.

'Windows setup could not detect any Hard drives installed in your System'. etc

Infact, the Hard drives are all installed and working very well with the VIsta Operating System. Could anyone let me know how to configure it, so that I could install the WinXP Operating System onto this Machine.

Your Help would be much Appreciated. THanks

i would then do a factory reset and everything would work for around 5-8 months
then the problem would happen again and i'd factory reset again
after this problem started happening my pc's ram dropped to 756 mb
on the most recent factory reset though it turn out it had 1.8 gb

I hope someone can lead me in the right direction. I have a new Acer laptop with vista pre-installed. It had 3 pre installed partitions;-

1. Hidden EISA Configuration
2. C - with vista installed - 111gb NTFS
3. D - data - empty - 111gb NTFS

I have shrunk C to a smaller size 77gb and now I have an unallocated section of 34gb. The unallocated section is between C & D.

What I would like to do is merge the unallocated area with partition D and install XP pro onto it.

My idea behind all this is to put C (with vista ) aside and use XP Pro, until I have to use Vista. I would like to make C. smaller but that was the smallest size DiskManagement would allow.

Now back to my original question how do I merge unallocated and partition D.

Thanking you in advance

A:Acer Extensa 5235 problem booting

I had to look up BartPE to see what it was but I think it's unlikely to save the day in your situation.

Assuming that your priority is to get Windows 7 back I'd first check that you have the Microsoft authorisation code for your copy. If it was pre-installed on the laptop there will be a hidden restore partition and you could try holding down the Alt key while tapping F10 to access it. Failing that option I'd download a Windows 7 SP1 ISO, burn it to disc, reinstall the OS and hope that there are no serious driver problems. Both options mean that everything you have installed and saved will be lost unless you have already made backups.

I have an Acer Extensa 4620, with a built in wireless card. My list of wireless networks show my Netgear router, and shows I have full signal to the router. However, when I try to connect to the router, the progress bar says connecting for 15-20 seconds, and stops, not connecting. No errors at all either. I brought it in for repair, and the laptop connected to their network at the shop without an issue.

I brought it back home, and decided to do a format/reinstall as the computer still didn't connect at home.
After the format, the connection to the Netgear router was there, set to automatic, but still won't connect.
My router has 0 security setup and fully open. Therefor that isn't an issue. Plus I have other computer connected to the router already.

I'm at a loss!

A:Acer Extensa 5620 Upgrade OS from XP to Windows 8....

There's a good chance that the Windows 7 driver may work with Windows 8, but the only way to find out it to try it & see. If there are any issues, you should get an error message informing you that the driver isn't compatible, or it may appear to install but just not work! If that is the case, then try IOBits Driver Booster Free - it might be able to find a compatible driver. If it doesn't, then you may have to forgo the card reader....!

I'm resurrecting this thread from the dead, I hope there's still someone around who can help me.

I'm upgrading my girlfriend's Extensa 5620Z Acer to Windows 7 Professional 32 bit from Vista. I did the same with my own Vaio Z620D. The thing that has me worried is that when I upgraded the Vaio, there was a multitude of drivers I had to download and install in a specific order to make sure the computer worked as it should.

I've been sniffing around, looking for a similar list of drivers for the Extensa, but have come up blank. Will the Extensa work fine (WLAN, LAN, Chipset, VGA, etc.) if I just install Windows 7?

Thanks for the help,
Bear

Hello Beartholomew, welcome to Seven Forums!


It's a safe bet that Windows 7 will install the needed drivers during/after the install completes and if need be you can install the Vista drivers in "Compatibility" mode and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

A:Flashing BIOS on Acer Extensa from windows 7 64 bit

You really should update the bios from a dos boot utility and the applicable software that can run in that. Put all the files not in the Winflash folder on a dos floppy disk. Then boot to it. Run the phlash16.exe in dos.

If you want to try in Windows, it should be fine. 32 bit software works well on 64 bit OS. Just close everything not needed for Windows to run first when going to do it. Use the task manager to forcibly close things if needed. Also, close antivirus and firewalls too.

Any suggestions ?

I can't seem to find the cause of the problem, I've checked everything.
No POST-screen, nothing.
However, if I remove the CPU, the screen background-light turns on and freezes, and the fan sounds weird. If I then re-insert the CPU, nothing happens again.

Hello everyone.

I have bought an Acer Extensa 5635ZG laptop a couple of weeks ago. It has a hard disk drive called WDC WD5000BEVT-22ZAT0 ATA Device. I did a hard disk partition when installing Win 7 Professional. Both parts are quite free of data so far.

For the first time yesterday night and a second time just an hour ago, when I've turned the PC on, it has started doing a chkdsk of the hard disk, has finished reporting no sector damages and kept booting normally. At first, it asks whether or not you want to skip the chkdsk process but I let it finish.

I'm worried because it has not done so previously and the laptop is almost brand new.

Should I be worried on a hard disk issue or is it some sort of Win 7 safeguard measure that I can skip easily and/or configure otherwise?

Thanks in advance.

A few days ago i re-installed Vista. I had to re-download and install the drivers from Acer's website. All of the drivers installed fine except the Broadcom Network driver. I made sure i had the correct OS selected when downloading the drivers. i'm left with a message telling me to "Insert My Network Card". I know that the card is inserted in device manager and even tried re-inserting it. I have no idea what to do. I am posotive that the card is Broadcom because it tells me on the bottom of the Acer Extensa 4420 Laptop. When i re-install Windows 7, the internet works without a flaw. But, it won't turn on at all (even with the switch on the front) with Windows Vista.

My daughter has an Acer Extensa 4420-5239 laptop running Vista Home Premium that is having problems with the wifi. The problem is that when she tries to connect to a secured network, the laptop will connect but it says that it has limited connectivity and so you cannot get on the internet. She said that it happens at college also. If the network is unsecured, there isn't any problems at all. The thing connects and you can surf away. My router at home is a wireless TrendNet 652. I set it to WPA2-PSK. The other devices in the house (ipad, ipod touches, HTC Inspire, Dell computer) connect just fine to this router setup. It is just her computer that's having issues. Any ideas of what may be going on with it?

Thanks!

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.RAM - Test with Memtest86+





Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.




   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.



   Tip
Memtest should be done overnight.

A:Acer Extensa 4420-5963 Cracked screen

I would highly recommend ebay before most other companies for screens. Reason being; you have more options and better recourse in the event of issues (imo). Ebay's prices are more reasonable than any other retail outlet most likely because you actually have the option of purchasing from different stores, in addition to individuals selling their items.

The inverters are separate from the screens and are located on the laptop usually. Can you not use your current cable for the laptop screen?

Hi fett400.

I bought an Acer Extensa 5635ZG recently and had the same problem with my NVIDIA GeForce G105M 512 Mb Turbo Cache. After many attempts to install the right driver, I connected Windows update to do its job. One of the first Windows update downloaded and installed was about Nvidia graphic cards and the problem finished. However, it happened while migrating from Vista Home to Win.7 Pro 32bits, so I don't know whether the same procedure will fix it for Win.7 Ult x64.

Good luck.

For christmas i recieved a brand new Acer Extensa 5430-5855 installed with windows vista and a built in wireless chip. I never had any problems with the wireless up until recently. i turned on my computer and it normally connects to my preferred wireless network automatically, but it didn't work. So i went to the page where you view the wirless networks available and it showed that my preferred network had a full signal. When i pressed connect again, a page loaded and showed 'Windows Cannot Connect to 'defalt'. I scanned my computer for any malware or anything like that and nothing popped up. I also read a couple of posts that said it might have something to do with windows updates not being installed. I went to go install these updates and they told me i needed the internet.

ANY help would be GREATLY APPERICATED!

With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The make and model of your hard drive, Seagate, Maxtor, Drive Fitness which is Hitachi, Or Western Digital. Perform a short and long test. Could also be called "Standard" and "Extended" test or also "Comprehensive" test. The Seagate hard drive test will work on most drives.

Seagate tools will work with some hard drives. If it doesn't with your hard drive try another.

Hi all, hoping someone would be able to tell me what determines the largest GB size SSD that I could upgrade my lappy with?Thanks,Rob

A:Extensa 5635

For Vista and Windows 7 with MBR, I think the max disk size is about 2 TB.  For Windows 8 or 10 with GPT, it's at least 256 TB.  Since most consumer SSDs are 1 TB or less, I don't think you'll have any problem with your BIOS if you wanted to add a 1 TB SSD (or less).  I would be shocked if your BIOS didn't allow a 1 TB SSD.....but I've been shocked before.

Extensa 5365Z notebook with Windows 7 Sp1 64-bit, Dual core T4300 2.10 GHz, RAM 2 GB. I would like to know #1. Current Bios version is 3305. Should I upgrade it to Acer BIOS 3310 (3.1 MB, 2011/04/12), that is to say the latest BIOS for Extensa 5365Z according to ACER support site?http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers  #2. According to the "Get Windows 10" tool by Microsoft, my notebook is compatible with Windows 10. ACER, though, hasn't released Windows 10 drivers. Do you think the fundamental features are going to work with Windows 10 anyway? Should I give it a try?

I don't even see Extensa 5365z in Acer Drivers.If you have the new driver and know for sure it's the correct driver, you can update it, but it's always a bit of a risk to do it. If you try to install the wrong driver you can brick your laptop.If you have no problems or reasons to upgrade the Bios, it's better to leave it alone. That said, I always upgrade mine and have never had a problem. As to Windows 10, I upgraded to 10, a Aspire 5250 that is not on Acer's approved list and Acer has no W 10 drivers for and it completed with no driver problems.I was coming from Windows 8.1 though and not W7. The 10 upgrade could wipe out your Recovery (if you still have it), and if you don't have a Windows install KEY you would probably be sad.I wouls clone the HDD to another HDD before I did it.
