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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, i have a fujitsu siemens amilo laptop with a intel centrino pentium m processor, supposed maximum clock speed 1.60ghz, the thing is the laptop never goes any faster that "600mhz" even when the power settings are set to "always on" and i am running heavy demanding apps, i tested the speed with a few cpu speed test programs and i still get the "600mhz" minimum speed, i checked in bios and the clock speed is 600mhz for some strange reason? why arent i getting 1600mhz in bios?, it doesent matter whether it's plugged in or on battery i still get the miserable 600mhz

why am i only getting 600mhz?

I have an acer aspire 5920 laptop and have had a problem with the battery not holding a charge from within a few months of purchase. Also, and I'm not sure if this 2nd problem is related, but the machine is unable to keep the time and date - it keeps reverting to a date (and incorrect time) in April 2007 (possibly the date of manufacture). Is there anyone else out there who is having similar problem(s) and if so, any solutions. The technician I took it to was very vague. I'd appreciate some help here

A:Acer aspire intel celeron m 520 recall?

It runs great but doesn't boot? You shouldn't have to "fix" a computer you've had for 2 hours unless you downloaded something or physically damaged it. I've yet to see computers recalled (batteries, yes), so, no, that's not the problem. Take it back and get a replacement.

Aspire R572G isn't a good model so, I'm guessing it's a R7-572g.Maybe another update is tagging with KB3140743. I would uninstall all the updates that were installed with KB3140743 and see if it would boot. Uninstalling an update should return the computer to the way it was before the update was installed. Running.If you pull off the two rubber bumpers on the bottom, take out all the screws, the cover will come right off. Unplug and remove the battery and remove the HDD. Connect it to another computer with USB and get your files out.If it's a R7-572G.

Hi all: I have a problem with my laptop (model VN7-571G). After a recent Windows 10 update, now I am not able to connect the laptop to my flat  LG TV via HDMI. I think it has to be related to Intel Graphics 5500 (current driver When I connect the laptop to my flat TV, laptop screen goes black (as it happened before), but TV message says "Without Conection". If I try to use Intel Driver Update Utility, it says I have to go to Acer website to get the drivers. I have already uninstalled all Intel drivers (VGA, chipset, etc.), and installed the ones in Acer website but the problem still exists. Any idea how to solve it?.

Hi guys, I have a serious problem. Right now I've made the impossible for the driver to work correctly but I can't.

I am trying to install the correct Graphic Driver for an Acer Aspire 1410 to no avail.

It is a Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family. I've tried to install it:
- Via the device manager
- From a driver download directly from the Acer Website.
- From Windows Update.

I have installed/uninstalled and I've ran out of ideas. Don't know what to do.

Each time I try to do something on device manager there's the yellow triangle with the display driver. Any suggestions?

Hello everyone,

It is my first thread on this forum and I want to thank you because you indirectly help me so many times.

I just installed new bios 1.25 on my notebook because of usb issues. Everything works fine but suddenly my wifi device stops working on windows 7.
It is well installed, the connection under Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections is enabled, but It doesn't see any WiFi spot.

It is not a device hardware problem because it works under ubuntu.

I tried all the usual ways: reinstall drivers etc but nothing happens.

I don't want to reinstall my OS because I'll have too many settings to restore after.

Is there anyone experiencing the same problem? Anyone who fixed it?

i have not yet checked the memory or if the hard drive is not working external came here first to hear other ideas while im gutting

so when i turn on the power... light comes on hard disk spins charges but no screen no bios... my conclusion ofc is the Motherboard...was gonna gut it and make sure all is pluged in and switch the memory incase that was the issue as i read on ANOTHER post

A:Acer Aspire issue

Tell us brand and model, and configuration. also where you live (for buying parts) We fan figger this out.
Do you see any sign of impact damage anywhere on any laptop surface.
Do you have a recovery disk set from Acer, or can you get one?
One possibility that would cover most issues is that the hard drive was damage by moving the laptop while the hard drive was spinning. Also, the ribbon cable from under the keyboard to the screen has pulled loose from vibration... or that a memory module has come loose.
The borrowers may not even know that they damaged it.
Are either you or your father good with screw drivers and other tools. You will need a #1 screw driver of excellent quality for hardness, and one smaller driver that is also not a cheap one... Then you can remove the hard drive.
You can buy a new hard drive to test, or borrow one, perhaps.
I would get a new one from,,,,,, or other online computer seller.
I recommend the SATA drives from Directron where a 160 GB drive is now only $32.99 to $47.00 depending on what you purchase. The Seagate 160GB drive is only $39.99 plus shipping. Is that an investment you can cover in your budget.
When we hear more from you, we will discuss some ways you can test your system, once we know what it is.

When i close the screen down the laptop use to go on standby which would start up instantly upon opening the screen.

Now if i just close the screen the laptop continues to run and drains the battery. Therefore now i have to shut the laptop down completely each time i pack he laptop up.

Can you recommend any fixes.

A:Acer Aspire S7 standby issue

Welcome to TSG SmartTech13. Hibernate, sleep (standyby provides a quicker start up) are all pretty much the same thing these days and those options will all use battery. These function is to mainly to save electricity which doesn't us as much battery but still uses battery.

With todays technology savings maybe $1.00 a month. My recommendation if you packing your laptop up for the day is to shutdown. If your going to use it again later the same day then check the Power Options settings in the Control Panel

From the screen shot it shows you are connected but are having a DNS problem. Preinstalled A/V software tends to cause this problem on a regular basis. It might be good to make sure you are using some valid DNS server IP's in your router like Google at and

Try removing or uninstalling any type of trial Anti Virus software which no doubt came preinstalled on your system. You will need to use the vendor specific uninstall tool for this.

It can also help to remove all preinstalled bloatware by using Decrapifier to show you what can be safely removed.

Hello. About two weeks ago I purchased an Acer Aspire R5-571TG laptop and while everything has been running great, the fan has been extremely active and loud.  Either idle, watching youtube videos or just working on Microsoft office, the fan will start running extremely loudly. I don't run any difficult programs and since it's a new laptop it's not loaded with anything at all, and I haven't downloaded any sort of program which messes with the OS. When I've checked the Processes, typically the CPU is in the normal percentile and the laptop itself doesn't feel extremely warm. I'm not sure if this is a technical problem or if I maybe have to disable a driver or something?

Ok i noticed it at work and thought it was just our wireless router there, but my laptop couldnt detect any wifi connections, i was going to check the router but put it off since i'm the only one who uses it. but now am home and am having the same issue, it wont detect any networks, i reset my router, and made sure it was configured properly. it is as far as i can tell. when i click to change the button to change the order of prefered networks it took me to authentication tab of the properties. i ran the network setup wizard again, and now it doesnt even have the authentication tab... i dont know what else to check.. oh, and i also checked the bios to see if it had any wifi settings there. it doesnt seem to.

I'm using a acer aspire one 110 netbook which origonaly had Linux on which I replaced for XP.

When I try to use 3dsMax with directX or old games such as Dungeon Siege 2 I get an error saying: Unable to enumerate any DirectDraw devices installed on this system. Note: this error can occur if another application has exclusive control over display for example, Net Meeting's desktop sharing feature, or hardware does not support 3d acceleraation or if your video driver does not propperly support DirectX 8.

I'm not aware of any Netmeeting program. I have directx 9 installed and have used both 3dsMax using directX and Dungeon Siege on this hardware before on Xp.

Hello, I have a question about the number of button combination pushed at the same time.I've problem in my favourite game with this, because it isn't workinglike on my old notebook. When I press and hold a certain number of buttons some of them doesn't work. So , it's possible to enable more working combination at the same time on my keyboard, or it's the issue of hardware restriction ? Thanks .

I purchased the recommended 8GB module from crucial to upgrade frm the 4GB module currently in my Acer Aspire XC-703G computer. After installing it in the main slot (without the other 4GB module) - the computer does nothing - not even a beep. I've tried both slots.I'm wondering if you can only use 2 x 4GB modules? Or maybe the ram is bad?This is what Crucial recommended: so far has not been much help.Any help would be appreciated.

So i flip the slider to turn on wifi and it says "NO WIRELESS DEVISE" but it should be built in...can anybody help?

A:Acer Aspire 5515 Wifi issue

I started your own thread for you here, as that post is not going to be of any help in the thread to which you posted.

If the wireless card is easily accessible through a small cover on the laptop bottom look to see if one is there and make sure it is secure.

Hi there,

I have the same problem with an Acer Aspire 3690. I changed the Vista to XP, I added all the drivers, and everything seems working properly, but I can't use the bradcom BCM94311mcg wireless adapter because it can't switch the radio on. If I switch the wireless button I get the same message wrritten above.

I am helping a friend with an Acer Aspire 4330. The problem is some of the keyboard keys produce multiple entries(of varying letter) when pressed. All hardware drivers are updated, however acer shows no keyboard drivers to update. A USB keyboard works fine when plugged in. My question is this: could this be a spyware related issue? I want to make sure before I tear this apart and try cleaning/replacing the keyboard.

A:Acer Aspire 4330 keyboard issue

No, it's not malware if an external keyboard works fine. The problem is with the physical keyboard. Before you start replacing parts, find out what happened to it. If someone spilled something on it, the keyboard might not be the only thing damaged. It looks like an old laptop. Not worth sticking much money into.

Hello. My problem is that my Laptop (Acer Aspire 5738PZG, approx. 2 years old) freezes. It most commonly does so while watching Youtube videos, but also while listening to music on Spotify, talking on Skype, and using Utorrent. It freezes for maybe 1 minute, when it will just resume doing whatever it was doing. Sometimes it also bluescreens. It does not happen while playing games or while using VLC media player. Flash player is correctly installed. The problem started after I had my computer on service about two months ago, but I moved shortly after so I haven't had the chance to go back and make them take another look at it. Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

I have installed Windows 7 Premium on my fathers Acer Aspire 7000 laptop, it had Vista Preium and I upgraded with no trouble.
However just noticed that his DVD/RW is not being recognised in Win7 it states code 48, windows stopped the software working.
I have tried to find other drivers etc with no luck. I downloaded the Aspire chipset from Acer and installed it by right clicking and doing it through compatability mode, but this did no good??
Any ideas to a solution please?

Someone asked me to install Windows XP on this Laptop for them. I never boote to Vista, and I doubt they use it before giving it to me.

So I install XP Professional and performed all the driver installs and updates all the way up to SP3. The laptop has an issue where the main speakers don't produce sound, just external speakers and headphones.

Someone even advised me to do a clean install and Leave it at SP2 , still the same issue.

Could this be speaker hardware failure? I didn't get any "error installing realtek" messages the whole time.

Another thing is, in the Device Manager -> System Devices , "system speaker" says no drivers are loaded for this device.

Any help, as always is much appreciated guys!

A very good day to you All Acer Aspire ZC-105 19.5" Non Touch AMD-E1-25004GB 500GB DVDRW Windows 8.1 All In One I have taken Microsoft?s Windows 10 update (I did inquire about this with Acer in February 2015 with no reply). There is an issue with making a Restart you can see videos of this on my Microsoft One Drive account. I checked the Acer info and the first thing found is that this model is not listed as compatible for the Windows 10 upgrade (they haven't produced and test drivers for the computer). Which potentially means I need to put up with the issue until Acer produces the drivers; if that is the issue?  Wondering if this is a BIOS issue; I am sure this is not an isolated case. I need professional help here; thank you in advance for your kind support, Michael.

My Nephews laptops battery ran low and required charging. When the charger is plugged into the laptop the orange 'charging' light illuminates for approximately 6 seconds then, goes out for a further 6. This repeats continuously whilst the battery remains flat and the machine will not power up.
I have checked the output from the charger which is constant although I have no means, at present , of ascertaining the actual output values.
If there is anyone with any hints or clues I should be most grateful' Thanks.

So the laptop will not turn on at all? Does it act the same if you remove the battery? If not the the adapter may be faulty, the DC jack in the laptop may have broken, or there's a motherboard failure in the laptop.

Testing with a known good and compatible power adapter would be the next step.

How old is the laptop, is it still under warranty?

A:Acer aspire 1691 display/monitor issue

If you can still make out the desktop, then it sounds like the backlight has failed. So a hardware replacement is in order.

As for the issue with the TV, it could simply be a resolution issue. Ensure you are using a resolution and refresh rate that the TV accepts. TV's with VGA input, often have very limited acceptable resolutions. Check the User Manual.

A better test, would be to simply connect the laptop to a true computer monitor and see what happens.

The area in the bottom left corner of screen gets very hot and I can tamper with the color of the stripes by pushing on the hot area.

hi,When I go to format my Acer it gets to the Windows 8.1 section where you select the hard drive to install Windows on before clicking next, also has the option to format and I think make a partition but there is no hard drive showing up in that box so I can't continue from there, it's the part after selecting language and clicking install.Has anyone else had this problem? If so how can I get my hard drive to appear in the box?Is there anything in the bios settings that can make my hard drive appear in the box?Thank you.

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.

I have just purchased two mother boards and processors and need some help on figuring out how to set up the clock speed and FSB speed on them so they will run properly with the processors I have installed on them.

1st Motherboard & Processor

Motherboard: Giga-byte GA-7VAXP
Processor: AMD 2400+
RAM: 512 Mbytes PC2700 (333Mhz)
Clock speed options: Auto(default), 5x, 5.5x, 6x...12x, >=12.5x
FSB speed options: 100Mhz, 133Mhz, 166Mhz

2nd Motherboard & Processor

Motherboard: Giga-byte GA-7DXE Version 2.0
Processor: AMD 1600+
RAM: 128 Mbytes PC2100 (266Mhz)
Clock speed options: none
FSB speed options: 100Mhz, 133Mhz

Can somebody tell me where I should put the initial settings for these so they work with the processors. I would hate to leave them at their default settings to find out I am losing speed because it was not set properly. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a HIS ATI Radeon HD 4870x2 Graphics card
I am getting very poor gpu clock and memory speeds on both cores of my graphics card.

Both cores are running at
GPU Clock 507MHz
Memory 500MHz
at both 3D and 2D mode, using GPU-Z and ati 8.12 catalyst control center
I know that in 3D mode it should be at 750MHZ and 900MHz and 2D at 507MHz and 500MHz(2gpu).
I have un-installed and re-installed the 8.12ccc
with no change at all, also using driver cleaner(in safe mode) when un-installing.
I get no arifacts as I use ExpertTool V4.0, enable fan contol for cooling while playing games.
Its just the card will not run at its full potentuall or how it should. Can you please help!!!

A:Issue with gpu clock and memory clock

That is strange..??

what happens when you set it to the default values..?? will the settings stick..??

not sure about ATI but i know the new nvidia cards have a power saving feature which drops the clocks when idle, kind of like Intel SpeedStep..

here's where my card clocks currently sit while its idle..
you can see they are far below stock clocks, maybe ATI have a similar feature in they're newer drivers..... have you checked to see if the clocks jump up when you stress the card.??

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.

i need a very quick reply please

I restarted my computer like normal and for whatever reason the computer is now stuck at the Acer boot screen. I try to press DEL to enter Setup and I even tried pressing F12 to go into the Boot Setup, but for whatever reason the computer does not respond to anything.

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.

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.

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 !!!

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.
