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.)

This problem was originally posted in the Security section,

Gremlins or hardware problem?

on the basis it might be malware, Tech specs of the machine are listed at the beginning. The evolution of the problem shows throughout, but in the end,

the machine will not boot up, or start in safe mode, startup repair cannot find a problem. Details shown in the last post there.

What other things can I do ?

System specs are quite low for Windows 7 on a 64bit version.

Have you thought about upgrading the memory to 4GB if the system supports it? Look here on finding more memory:

Hi my notebook has bow decided to not work after it stopped me using the internet saying it was at risk I then switched it off and when I tried to go back on it won't boot past the vodaphone boot screen and then goes on to status code 0xc00000e9 I could relie use some help as I am not very computer literate

A:my acer d260 wont boot

How did you switched off the machine? 0xc00000e9 could indicate a hard drive issue perhaps failure. Make sure your hard drive is detected in BIOS.

From another computer Then load the burned cd's into your computer.

Download Ubuntu Live CD ISO image and burn the ISO image to a cd using Imgburn (how to burn an ISO image using Imgburn). With the newly burned cd boot with it then select "Try Ubuntu" not "Install Ubuntu" access the Windows partition or what ever partition or hdd you which to backup files from by going to "Places". Backup the files to DVD, an external hard drive or thumb drive(s).

Downloading UBCD which is in my signature.Burn the ISO Image to a blank CD using Imgburn (How to burn a ISO Image using Imgburn) burn at lowest speed. With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The maker of your HDD perform a extended or long test.

Hi I have an oldish Acer D running windows starter SP that is a little slow it seems to me so I ran the Speccy program to see what RAM Memory I have installed and the analysis comes out with an answer that confuses me Under RAM Memory It says DDR so I take it that I have DDR chip installed but further down the page under heading of SPD under quot slot it reads that i have a DDR installed I m confused Am I m misreading the analysis as to what I have installed Can somebody that knows about these things please tell me what type of RAM I have installed by taking a look at the uploaded page please I DO know that I have a gb memory chip installed but that isn t what I want to know I would like to know what type DDR2 Acer or D260...DDR3 ? of DDR is installed in the machine Thanks and hope you may Acer D260...DDR3 or DDR2 ? be able to help

A:Acer D260...DDR3 or DDR2 ?

ps...just to explain a little more...I asked this question elsewhere and the answers I received told me I had 2gb RAM installed...I know this and know it is the maximum amount of RAM for the machine...my thinking is that if I have the DDR2 installed then I will install the DDR3 as it is possibly faster for the machine...the Acer is running a little slow it seems to me ad I`m trying to speed it up a little.

The Speccy results page says two different things for the DDR type...I would like to know which DDR type is in the machine please ? (see above post for uploaded Speccy page)

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.

I replaced the DC jack on an Acer today with a new one. When the laptop has the battery in the power LED shows a power source(unfortunately the battery is dead). When I remove the battery and plug in the charger to the new DC jack, no LED. Hitting the power button results in a flash from the power button light and power LED for an instant but no POST or boot. I tried different chargers as I have a few universals laying around so that's not it.....What's the problem?

A:Acer Aspire 5742 no power from dc jack, replaced it, still no power

Maybe not enough power on my acer laptop the charger says the output is 19 volts 3.4 amps and it runs fine without the battery installed, When I dont have the battery installed and the charger pluged in there is no indication that the changer is indeed plugged in and also when I turn it on I usually press the button just a bit longer to turn it on

Currently have battery out and ac lead out for next half hour to try again later.

A:Acer laptop and it's power

Hard to say. Lots of power jacks have broken away from the system board in those models... Not cheap to fix, as they require a special solder and soldering technique.
If you remove the keyboard and bezel, you can generally quickly tell if the socket component is loose. Just tap it gently with a sounding rod or even a pencil.
If under warranty, get it to Acer yesterday.

When we unplug it, it works good as new! I know how to do Hijack This scans, and know what to do with them, everything is fine with the log so I'm assuming it's not a virus, as all virus/spyware scans come up clean as well. Could this be an issue with the power adapter or battery? It doesn't make sense to slow down just by plugging it in, it's sure giving me a headache! lol!

My laptop, aspire E1-510P will not power on. A blue light will come on for a few seconds then it shuts off. What is the problem & What can I do to fix it?

A:My acer aspire E1-510 will not power on

On Acer Aspire notebooks, blue light indication has different meanings depending on whether you are using your laptop on battery or by connecting it to a power adapter. To know more, the following link can be helpful:http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9674/~/how-does-the-battery-indicator-light-on-my-a... In your case, it is recommended to check if there is any issue with the battery. To do this, remove the battery from your laptop and connect the laptop directly to power adapter. If the laptop works fine now, there may be some issue with the battery. To confirm this, you can try using another battery (if possible) and see if that resolves the issue. Hope this will help you.

(The written spec I got on the pc before purchase also says its PCI-E)

How can I be certain of this, because if it is AGP, it will be the final straw with the biggest PC blunder I've ever made- buying an ACER!

Hello Everyone
The fan on my Acer Power F1 B desktop has become very noisy purchased 2/8/2005 I suppose it has done pretty well.
Would it be worth renewing the fan????? Is it a reasonably straight forward job ??? Could I fix it myself with instructions???? I have Windows XP Pro installed which I know is not going to be supported in the near future, or should I put up with the noise and keep my cash for a new computer.
Is 8 years plus a great age for a computer now, they do last much longer than they used to.
As always looking forward to your thoughts and ideas on this subject, I'm sure there are a lot of oldies like me thinking on the same lines.

I got a free upgrade for windows 7 for my mom's laptop but it wont install
it gets past the checking step and then restarts and says its reverting back to vista but it doesnt say exactly why

when i got my laptop's free upgrade from hp it took a couple of hours but it installed perfectly and i didnt need to backup my files so wtf is wrong with acer?

A:Acer Upgrade Kit

Your best bet is a clean install booting from the Windows 7 DVD included, the disk with the official MS license sticker giving the Product Key. Plug in ethernet, Select "Connect to the Internet during Install" to get the latest drivers/Updates during install, then Custom, then Advanced drive tools to format the HD and install.

Of course, you always need to back up files (ask your Mom which) when installing/Upgrading, and gather program installers/disks ahead of time because you will need to reinstall programs.

Afterwards, you can install anything else needed from the apps/drivers CD included, however the Win7 DVD is pretty much driver-complete and newer drivers come in on Windows Updates.

Your problem sounds like a failing In-Place Upgrade, which is not a clean install and carries over corruption from Vista. It may be the machine is doing you a favor by refusing to in-place Upgrade. A clean install is always better.

Hi I'm planning on upgrading my Acer tc-705 with a MSI gtx 750ti. I've done hours and possibly weeks of research seeing whether this card will work with my pre built PC or not. I've come to the conclusion that it will work but its better to upgrade my PSU sooner than later. Can I have some second opinions here on the Acer community site. Do you guys think I can run this card for at least 6 months?I have a 300w fsp 300 60(tha1) PSU with 8A on the 12v1 rail and 14a on the 12v2. I'm more worried about the wattage though so any thoughts will help!

A few people have reported that the 750ti and everything worked fine with that exact power supply on the same motherboard.  The wattage should be fine with FSP 300W.  I have that power supply too (and same motherboard) and was torn about what to do.  I went ahead and just upgraded the power supply........i.e. I chickened out.  I found a 450W Seasonic 80 plus gold on a black friday sale for $53.00 shipped. The fan on my FSP 300W was starting to get a little loud (not really loud, but annoying tone) so it wasn't that hard of a decision in the end. I'm not familiar the size of the MSI version of the card as to whether it will fit or not.. Edit: but I didn't buy the 750ti

Guys, i need to upgrade the RAM on my Acer Aspire R11, model: R3-131T-P3H4 It currently has a 4GB DDR3-1600 SODIMM memory. Is it OK to install a DDR3L or it has to be DDR3?

I'm hoping to be able to upgrade the CPU in my ageing and overworked Acer Aspire G600p Desktop computer currently with a Pentium 4 2Ghz socket 478 on an Acer j87m board. Does anyone know what the maximum performance I can upgrade to? I'm seeing on eBay that 3Ghz P4's are very cheap but I don't know if this computer supports Hyperthreading.
Any and all help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Acer CPU Upgrade

The fastest P4 you can throw in there is 3.4 GHz. But if you could find a P4 Extreme 3.4 GHz then it would be a bit faster. That is your best bet.

Hi I'm planning on upgrading my Acer tc-705 with a MSI gtx 750ti. I've done hours and possibly weeks of research seeing whether this card will work with my pre built PC or not. I've come to the conclusion that it will work but its better to upgrade my PSU sooner than later. Can I have some second opinions here on the Acer community site. Do you guys think I can run this card for at least 6 months?I have a 300w fsp 300 60(tha1) PSU with 8A on the 12v1 rail and 14a on the 12v2. I'm more worried about the wattage though so any thoughts will help!

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?

About 2 months ago by company bought 60 Acer cb3-111 chromebooks. I tested them all and joined them to our wifi with no issues. Since then, they've been sitting in charging stations. One of them is now completely dead. It won't power on at all. There are absolutely no lights, so signs of life at all. I've plugged it in to various chargers at various outlets. I've done all the reset key combos I can find online. Nothing. Acer is telling me that it isn't in fact in warranty anymore... even though I know it is. While I fight that uphill battle, does anyone know anything that might fix this? ThanksJS

I have a Acer Aspire AX3400G slimline case and am experiencing a problem when powering up. When pressing the power button the computer begins to power up then stops. The fan is running but nothing else. If I unplug then replug the computer it will start normally. This started intermittently but now is doing it every time I turn it on. I believe I need a new power supply? The power supply is a Liteon PS 5221-9 230 max watt. Does this sound like a power supply issue? And if so could someone direct me to a good replacement PSU? I only use the computer for Email, Facebook etc. and don't require any serious power usage.

remove battery and try to boot up with it plugged in.

Check to see if the the little pin in the plug where the power adapter goes into is lose. Take a small screwdriver and lightly touch it. It should not move... if it does move it very well could be from that and your battery is just dead (not charged) which is why its not turning on.

A:acer 5551 power up problem

Did you guard against static discharge to the electronics? That can fry a mobo.

Laptops can be a maze to get into the CMOS battery, so are you sure you reassembled everything correctly, made connections tightly, secured the CMOS battery right side up?

Do you get any LED lights? Is the CPU fan or a case fan running? Is there any signal to the screen at all?

Pull out the A/C adapter plug and battery, hold power button for 30 seconds to drain power. Plug back in only a/co adapter to see if it will start. Anything?

I have an Acer X and I have been trying to install using the Acer Upgrade Wizard sent Acer Wizard Upgrade to me in the quot upgrade kit quot I received My current OS is Acer Upgrade Wizard Vista Home Premium I can only get as far as the screen that asks for my model and it will only allow me to select from the notebook list and I can not go to the desktop list so I can go no further with the install I contacted Acer support and was told to do a clean install I have been using this computer for a couple of months now and it has all of my apps and files on it new and the ones I transferred from my old XP machine Also it is working great I Acer Upgrade Wizard think that a clean install is a pretty drastic step for what appears to me to be a failure in the Acer software Acer Upgrade Wizard Would it be possible to install directly from the windows disc without running the upgrade wizard

A:Acer Upgrade Wizard

Is there a clean copy of Win7 Upgrade installer included in the "kit" Acer sent?

If so, you can try booting from it to do a custom clean install.

First back up all of your files and, if possible, a HDD image using a program like free Macrium. This way you can easily reimage your HDD if operations fail.

Others have described an Acer two disk Upgrade set with a clean copy WIn7 upgrade disk which can be booted to do a clean install, and an apps/drivers disk which also contains the dreaded bloatware and might not be needed since Win7's installer is excellent with drivers - almost all you need are included in it or are quickly provided by Windows Updates.

Your model will also have a product download page where you can find any drivers.
Only if you rely on Works do you need that apps disk, and copies of Works can be found elsewhere, like Adobe reader/flash and Java runtime can easily be googled.

How can I upgrade RAM in Acer Aspire Z1-611?

A:upgrade RAM in Acer Aspire Z1-611

There isn't much information about how to do this... But, essentially this machine has a single memory slot that comes from the factory with 4GB, which you can remove and replace with an 8GB module. Suppliers like Crucial and Kingston offer the correct specification. However, the hard part is opening up the unit and replacing the memory. It's not straightforward, which explains why Acer don't provide instructions. It's probably best done by an experienced computer technician- but for those wanting to do the upgrade themselves here are the steps: 1. With the unit turned off and disconnected find a table to work at. Turn the unit over, face down, and place it on something soft that won't scratch the screen or generate static. A wool blanket or something like that should do.2. Prise off the small square white plastic cover above the stand. You should be able to do this with your fingers - don't use a screwdriver because you'll scratch the plastic surface.3. With the cover off, you'll see the HDD. The are two Philips screws that hold the HDD and its caddy into the back of the unit. Unscrew the two screws and keep them safe.4. Slide the HDD across, you will feel it come away from the SATA interface. You will then be able to lift the HDD out. Handle it with care, put it with the screws somewhere safe.5. Now to prise the back off... You don't need any tools for this. Looking round the gap between the front and back mouldings, gently pull each mould away from each other. Slowly work round all the edges, the back will come away from the front and you will be able to lift the back away from the front.6. When you lift the back off, you'll see it comes away with the DVD drive. There is a data cable and power cable from the DVD to the processing unit. Gently pull the cables off the motherboard which is visible through gaps in the shielding. Lift the back plastic clear and put it somewhere safe.7. There are 4 screws holding the processing unit (motherboard in its shielding) against the front moulding. Unscrew these screws and keep them safe. You will now be able to lift the unit clear of the plastic front - however it will still be connected to the micro speakers, camera, ground wires and power on/off cables. Only disconnect what is absolutely essential and then turn the unit over to reveal the underside of the motherboard.8. There are 5 screws that hold the motherboard into metal shield. Undo these and keep them safe with the other screws. Then, work the motherboard out of the shield (USB and other connectors protrude through it) and you will then be able to remove the memory! Only do this if you are an experienced PC engineer. These instructions are given on the basis that I take no responsibility for the end result or for any inaccuracies. This is fiddly and complex work and it will be easy to damage wires and plugs if you are not experienced.

Hi:
For the past week or so, I started using old Acer with XP Media which is very slow to load any of programs, particularly I.E. 8/SP3.

I looked at Local Disk/C and found only 34 GB total size with 512 Ram. I plan to upgrade 1 GB Ram/memory. However, I have no idea of upgrade to HD, 75 GB. I want to use 'External HD' as much, because I'm no way to tinker deep inside PC, such as HD, although I did upgrade Ram on a different PC with a success.

Should I use 'External HD' to compensate it? If possible, what sort of External HD would be recommendable?

Thanks for your help in advance.
 

A:Upgrade HD in Old Acer PC using External HD?

If you think it is slow now, it is going to be REALLY slow when using an external drive. USB 2 drives are very slow compared to an internal drive.

If you want a faster drive, then install an internal drive OR take it to a shop and have it done. Externals are really for storing data files, image backups, etc; not for installing programs.

HI,

I am looking to upgrade the GPU on this PC but I am unsure if the PSU will be able to support it. I am not looking to install a high end GPU only a low end card such as ASUS 2 GB AMD Radeon R7 240-2GD3-L PCIe. I am aware that the PSU has a max of 220w but I am unsure of the current load. Based on the basic system with no current upgrades are you able to advise me on this?

Basic specs are:

Windows 7 64 Bit
Intel Core i3 2120
6GB Ram
Intel HD Integrated Graphics
2 HD (1 SATA 1GB)
1 Optical Drive
Realtek HD Audio

If necessary I am able to disconnect 1 HD and the optical drive as they are not necessary, also to disable the onboard graphics if possible if this will help.

As it says on the tin. I know the general benefits to going to SSD over HDD, which is why I'm considering it.

I want to know two things, but before that here's my Laptop's specs:

Acer Aspire E1-771-6496
i5-3230M 2.60GHz (3.2GHz overclocked)
6GB DDR3 RAM
500GB HDD
WIN10 (Upgraded from WIN7)

What I want to know:

1) Are there SSDs made for Aspire laptops?
2) Can I copy the data from HDD boot drive (including the OS) to the new SSD?
A little backstory: The reason why I'm seriously considering this is because last Christmas my Computer decided that then was the perfect time to have a stroke and my copy of WIN7 got corrupted.

DAMN YOU PAVLOV!!!

I had no means of backing up my data because I was caught completely unawares. Now, 8 months later, I am determined to have that never happen again!

Hi

My dad has an Acer Aspire SA-80 and wants to upgrade to a decent graphics card but as its AGP i suggested a new Motherboard....

now what we plan to do is:-
new motherboard with PCI-E 16x
nVidia (XFX) 8800GS Graphics Card
2Gb DDR2 RAM (2x1Gb is better isnt it for dual channel work?)

OFFTOPIC: he wants to play flight-sim x (2006) and also needs a good joystick

has anyone had any experience upgrading one of these SA-80's?

im concerned about the case size for the graphics card

ALSO - does the 8800GS require its own power supply? (meaning new PSU also)

any advice greatly appreciated

Hello everyone! First post here so be nice

I recently bought a new screen for my acer aspire 5920g to upgrade the 1280x800 supplied screen. The new screen is WSXGA (1650x900), I've managed to get to the point of exchanging the screens however it seems as though acer only have wired up half the LCD cable. Now, I thought no problem, i'll wire the rest up myself. The only issue is that i'm not sure it is possible, there are not another 8 connections on the motherboard plug to wire up...... does anyone know if this is possible?

A:Can I upgrade my Acer Aspire XC-705?

your model has:2 SATA 3.0 port1 SATA 2.0 port so this is the first issue you will encounter, not enough ports if you keep the DVD drive connected. the biggest issue is the lacking of RAID (hardware) support from the BIOS (at least i can't find any reference to this option on the BIOS). so, not worth in my opinion, since you must rely on a software RAID 1 enviroment.
