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.)

My Aspire 5534 laptop came with Win7.
I installed WinXP 64 bit Corporate edition but I cannot find a
driver for the graphics card...

Could anyone point me in the right direction?

RAM: 4.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 239MHz (4-4-4-12)

ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics (Acer Incorporated [ALI])

A:Aspire 5534 Laptop - I want to Install WinXP

My first question would be why are you removing Win7? Acer doesn't support XP drivers for that Notebook anymore and it's just going to get harder and harder to find them.

In any event, I'd suggest checking out THIS POST and give this a shot.

Good day!

Thanks.

A:Acer Aspire 5534 battery won't charge

First check that the laptop works on mains power by removing the battery and having the a/c adapter plugged in.

if the laptop works on mains power okay, you need a new battery.

I purchased an Acer Aspire 5534 a few years back for my granddaughter and the PC is inoperative. It seems the master boot is totally corrupted and the only solution is rebuild the system but my daughter no longer has the disks that came with the computer. Acer says they don't have the recovery disks for this computer.

Is there anyway to see if someone on the Internet has a recovery disk for this computer?

Hello All....first time posting, so thank you in advance for any suggestions regarding a Black Screen problem. After upgrading my 6 yr. old Acer Aspire 5534 laptop from Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit to Windows 10 it frequently will not wake up from sleep.  Black screen with fan and blue power light on, but no response until I unplug the adapter and hold down the power button, then it starts up normally.  I am not an advanced user, but read for hours the last time it happened and did change Power Settings to uncheck fast start up, but that did not help.Then I read update video card driver, but when I went to the Acer Canada website I don't see any updates past 2009 when I purchased this laptop....other than this really annoying problem Windows 10 seems to be working well.

I *think* you have an Intel gm45/gl40 graphics chipset and the latest drivers may be here. If not you need  to run MSINFO32, then select System Summary>Components>Display and see what is listed as the Name, Adapter type, and Driver Version.

I purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help.

The SSD will probably be fine with the old Windows  7 too.There seems to be a problem with one or more Acer drivers with the Windows 7 Enterprise N. To make it get hot like that it has to be something with the Processor.Since Windows 7 Enterprise N isn't the Windows that the laptop is supposed to run, you might want to see if Intel has a better driverhttp://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.htmland if it will cooperate with the rest of the components in the laptop. I have a feeling you're not going to be able to run the Enterprise N.

Digging in beyond the published system specs we find that the model does have a 20gb SSD caching ship on the mobo, which would explain the 18gb good disk Diskpart reported: Acer Aspire S3-391 53314G52ADD Replacing the MSATA ssd? - Aspire - Laptop Tech Support That thread actually has the user installing the OS to the SSD which we've helped do on 30gb MSATA but never on one that small - though it obviously can be done.

The hard disk may be failing. Test it with the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan. You can see the HD make by accessing it as shown in Taking apart Acer Aspire S3-391-6497 >> Inside my laptop or googling any serial for it listed in BIOS setup tabs.

If unable to find HD make use Seagate Seatools ISO burned to CD with Windows Image Burner, booted to run the full scan.

If it tests OK then work through the steps to Troubleshoot Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forum

If the disk has failed replace it to do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7. The best upgrade one can do nowadays is an SSD which is lightning fast, faster than buying a high end laptop without one.

Be aware that the Office Starter has been discontinued and we no longer even have access to a legacy download for it. But it can be replaced by free Open Office if you don't have another Office key available.

A:Acer aspire with windows 7

Welcome to Techguy cavalier04! In the future, please refrain from posts in all caps. They are really hard to read, and in online etiquette this is the equivalent of shouting. I think that the hard drive in this computer is failing, and I'd start by testing it. You need to download a drive test utility like Drive Fitness Test and make a bootable CD. Once you've done that, boot the suspect computer from the CD and run a full test, and report the results.

If you don't know how to burn a disk image, the procedure will depend on what OS and/or burning software you have installed on the computer used to download DFT. So, if you need help with burning a disk image, you'll need to provide info about your version of Windows and any Disk Burning software installed on your computer.

I upgraded to Windows 10 (32 bit) on my Aspire SW5-111. It didn't find the camera. I had used the camera earlier in the day, Skyping my daughter in Germany, and it worked fine then. Then I did the Win 10 upgrade and now no webcam. Looking on the Acer website, the only 32 bit win 10 drivers are audio, Bluetooth , and LAN. After struggling with it for a day I reverted back to Win 8.1, however the camera was still not found. I had to reinstall the Platform Drivers and finally got the camera back. Has anyone successfully upgraded an Aspire SW5-111 to Windows 10? Do I dare try the 64 bit Platform Drivers, or do I run the risk of bricking the computer, if it will even let me install them?Thanks for any input.

What you need to do is extract the platform drivers into a temporary directory. Inside you will find a directory called "camera". Next Open Device Manager > Imaging Device > (camera name). Click on the tab marked EVENTS. Record the Device name (USB\VID_xxxxxxxxxxxxx) Now when you install Windows 10, open Device Manager and look  for either the camera or an "unknown device" with the same USB\VID...). Select the Driver tab and Update Driver. Select "Browse my computer..." and browse to the Camera directory you just created. Make sure "Include Subfolders" is checked and click "Next". This should install your camera only.

Hi,1. Is the Computer running the factory installed version?2. If the computer is running the factory installed OS, then once you installed all the available Windows 8 updates you could upgrade to 8.1 from the store(I think that's where you are struck)If the computer is running Non OEM version of windows, install the OEM Version using the recovery media & try again, that should help. Cheers.

Hi i am looking for some advice,

A family member has an Acer Aspire One netbook, and they would like a Windows Operating system installed. I have already installed my copy of windows XP Home on my own identical netbook, which runs fairly well, but not great. So basically i would like to knw if i got Vista or 7, would either of those run better than XP?

The specs of the AA1 are:
16Gb SSD
1.6GHz Intel Atom N270
1Gb RAM DDR2

Thanks, Rob

Windows 7(and Vista) needs more than just 16GB and it won't run properly with 1GB of RAM, you should upgrade your storage and add an additional 1GB of RAM

I got my aspire 5552 from my buddy, and it had windows 10 on it. The driver was working fine but the computer kept updating itself or something, and it would stop working. I kept restoring it to previous versions when it did work, but now that won't work. I need this computer for college classes, but it is basically useless without the wifi. Is there a driver update I can download to make it work?

A:Windows 7 Aspire E5-573G?

Acer doesn't support this laptop for Windows 7 and has no win 7 drivers available.I don't know why you don't like 8.1, but I can guess.Try Start 8 free trial and set up the Win 7 style start menu. http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/download.aspI can almost forget I'm not running Win 7.If it does the trick for you, it's a whopping $4.99.

Do you wish to restore this computer to the same condition as when you bought it?That would mean only the operating system and the programs that came with it.If so pressing Alt and F10 while booting usually starts the acer recovery console.Just follow the on screen instructions then for a complete manufacturer reset.

Hello Poison Ivy2's brother. Yeah I kind of explained all that stuff already if you had a chance to read through this thread.  1. Put her BIOS back to defaults (F9) and then save and exit (F10).2. After you save and exit BIOS, go back in to BIOS and enable the Boot Menu3.  Go to your computer and use RUFUS to create installation media.  (follow instructions I gave you in previous posts)4.  If her computer came with Windows 8.1 w/ Bing, that vanilla Windows 8.1 iso isn't going to work, because it has a special "Bing" key and Microsoft won't activate it (Microsoft won't let you activate the vanilla Windows 8.1).  5. However you can download the Windows 10 iso and use RUFUS for UEFI only install.  Please read through all of my previous posts and links.

A friend of mine was given an Aspire One D270. This thing is totally screwed up. Somebody installed Win 7 Ultimate on it, when it first boots you get into windows but the help screen pops up and you can't get rid of it, you can move the pointer but if you try to open anything it goes nuts, you can shut it down but when it boots up it asks what operating system you want to start.
I did some searching trying to find out how to boot to a USB to reformat the drive. I got into the BIOS but have no idea which USB port is which, I can't even find a user manual for this thing. I want to reformat the drive and install Win 7 premium but I understand thsi thing was sold wit WIN 7 starter, whatever that is.
Please, can anybody help me here

Hi,
I would suggest using a 32 bit install of what ever 7 home premium if you have a unused key for it,

If not I would get a win-7 starter edition and use the key on the machine to activate 7 starter.

A:Aspire R7-572, DisplayLink, and Windows 10

All right folks, here is the answer.  When I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10, if I selected the 'wipe the drive and install fresh' option everything worked fine.  If I selected the 'keep my stuff' option the DisplayLink failed. Ultimately it turned out that the previously installed DisplayLink software remained installed while a new version also installed with Windows 10. The solution:Disconnect the docking stationUninstall the DisplayLink softwareRebootRun the DisplayLink cleanup tool "DisplayLink Installation Cleaner 8.0.453" that was provided to me by a Targus engineer (not sure if this is readily available from either the Targus or DisplayLink site)RebootInstall DisplayLink USB Graphics Software for Windows 8.0 M0.exe from DisplayLink's web siteWhen prompted connect the docking stationVoila!

At some point you upgraded the Vista OS to Windows 7 and depending on the timing that was either free (only availab;e for a few months when buying a new Vista the W7 upgrade was free) or you had to pay for it. Either way you got a new key with the W7 upgrade. You need to use that same key again to upgrade from Vista to 7 again, or else you'll need to buy another.

Hello.

I've downgraded my netbook - Acer Aspire One 725 from windows 7 to Windows XP SP3.

On Windows 7 it was very very slow and not usable.

On Windows XP the machine works quite fast and is not freezing.
The problem is that there's no SOUND.

The machine has AMD APU C-60 processor, its integrated with AMD Radeon HD 6290.

I've read somewhere that this netbook should have two sound chips, one in Radeon graphic card for HDMI output.

And one integrated in motherboard.

Am I right?

In device manager there is AMD High Definition Audio installed.

Aida64 shows two positions:
AMD Hudson-3 FCH - High Definition Audio Controller PCI
ATI Radeon HDMI @ AMD K14 - High Definition Audio Controller PCI

When I try to access volume control it says something like this: "no mixer device".

I would appreciate any help.

You can delete them, but you need to make the Recovery drive first or you will probably be sorry you didn't.http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/38147/~/windows-10%3A-create-a-usb-recovery-drive-u...

We have about of the R - machines several other laptops and about Targus DisplayLink port replicators floating around nbsp Everything works fine except when I try to upgrade an R to Windows nbsp Windows auto-installs the Targus DisplayLink software and Windows DisplayLink, R7-572, Aspire 10 and almost everything works nbsp USB devices Aspire R7-572, DisplayLink, and Windows 10 analog audio and ethernet nbsp What fails is the video portion there are no additional monitors available When I connect the USB cord the audio and ethernet devices appear in the Device Manager but the USB Display Adapter appears for about seconds then disappears again On Windows everything was working fine then with either an In Place Upgrade or a clean install the behavior is the same nbsp This is not a Windows issue nbsp Aspire R7-572, DisplayLink, and Windows 10 other laptops on including my Acer V Nitro and an older TravelMate P work fine nbsp It is not faulty port replicator hardware all other laptops work fine and these laptops work fine when on Windows I am open to ideas so anyone that has worked with these things please speak up

A:Aspire R7-572, DisplayLink, and Windows 10

Which Targus do you have ? I have both a Targus ACP70USZ  and a Mediasonic HV1-U24D2L-W pushing dual 1920X1080 monitors. All machines are running Windows 10 and currently the R3 (currently on the dock) using Displaylink 7.9.1488.0 driver. If not working I'd suggest downloading the latest version from Targus (7.9 or later), completely uninstall your current version, reboot, then reinstall the package. If that does not work and is with specific docks, then contact Targus. They had a problen a year or two ago and replaced my first dock.

Hello. I haven't used my laptop in quite a while thanks to smart phones but I needed to use my iTunes the other day and long story short had to completely reboot my laptop to factory settings. Before hand it had windows 7 Home Prem according to the sticker on the back of my laptop. Using erecovey it booted Vista.  Now nothing really works because Vista is outdated. I know I had windows 7 and I was even getting the pop up for the windows 10 update. Any help would be great. Not snide comments on what "I think" was there like some other forum I asked on. 

A:Need help with reinstalling windows 7 on aspire 77...

At some point you upgraded the Vista OS to Windows 7 and depending on the timing that was either free (only availab;e for a few months when buying a new Vista the W7 upgrade was free) or you had to pay for it. Either way you got a new key with the W7 upgrade. You need to use that same key again to upgrade from Vista to 7 again, or else you'll need to buy another.

hi,

I already have the Win7 on my Dell M1530, but want to install it on my Acer Aspire 5920 which has ATI Mobility 3470. I need to know if ATI support Windows 7 and do they support laptops like Nvidia do?

Thanks,

I'm having a hard time re-installing Windows 10 on my ACER laptop. My Aspire E11 was shipped with Windows 8 on it and I upgraded the Windows from 8 to 10 several months ago. Recently I felt it has been slowed down and tried to re-install the Windows 10 from USB drive.The following message has shown up while re-installing it.Error: "There was a problem resetting your PC" Now I cannot do anything with my laptop.I cannot boot up my laptop and even cannot enter the BIOS by pressing F2.When I turn on my laptop it displays ACER logo and reboots infinitely by itself. What should I do to fix it?

A:[Aspire P3-171] Windows 10 CPU core problems

Hi, If you have time and space on the HDD, could you try to install another windows 10 OS from a USB drive and check if you have this issues in a fresh install which wasn't upgraded. It can be that the settings were screwed up when you upgraded from w8 to w10. I don't recommend to do a refresh of the PC from windows10 settings because you will lose the ability to roll back to w8.However, you will need a partition to do this. I really think that the issue is in the upgrade process and a fresh windows would work OK, but I cannot guarantee it.

HELP! I have a Aspire Z5600 All In One and I want to up grade from Windows 7 to 8.1 or 10 but they don't list any on the site are there other options? I don't have money to purchase anothe PC at this point. PLEASE HELP me, Thank you. 

A:Windows 10 Drivers for Aspire Z5600 All in one

windows 10 will be able to update automatically most of your drivers, maybe the only problem can be the Intel VGA but seems that lately they fixed issues about it. in the worst case, hardware with yellow exclamation mark on Device Manager, a google search can found 90% of drivers.

If Windows refresh/reset feature doesn't work, then you need to clean install Windows 8/8.1, but you need Windows 8/8.1 installation DVD/USB.

How to clean install Windows 8.1 if you have OEM computer with UEFI firmware (BIOS) embedded Windows 8 product key?

Or install Windows 7. Note that you must disable Secure Boot in UEFI firmware (BIOS).

A:How to install Windows XP to Acer Aspire E15

Please explain more clearly.1. why do you want an outdated OS?2. do you want to replace W8.1 with XP or keep W8.1 & dual boot with XP?3. if you want to dual boot, did you pre-prepare a partition for XP to be installed to?4. have you considered installing XP in a virtual machine? That might be your best bet.

A:Why can't I upgrade my Aspire 7600U to windows 10?

Same here on my ACER Aspire 7600U. After trying several times and failing I ended up contacted Acer support. Aftera few minutes of consulting with their techincal team, the person helping me out told me: " I checked the information of the system and see that this model systems are not eligible for Windows 10 upgrade." After pressing her for my available options she told me: "Please contact Microsoft, they will provide a Media creation tool to help these systems to install Windows 10 upgrades." I did the installation with the Media creation tool and got "0xC1900101 - 0x40017 The installation in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during BOOT operation."

New here--my first post. Microsoft says my Aspire One Happy2 netbook is not compatible with Win 10 because the Intel GMA 3150 will not support it.  Does anyone know if any efforts are being made by Acer or Intel to issue an updated driver and/or software patch that will enable me to run Win 10? I am currently running Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit with 2GB of RAM.  Runs OK, but a little sluggish.  Was hoping Win 10's improved efficiency would improve my netbook performance.  Note: I already understand that netbooks are very limited to begin with.  Just like mine for the things I use it for. Thanks

A:Windows 10 Not Compatibile with Aspire One Happy2?

Have you already installed Win10? If so: Do you get a compatibility error before you install Win10? Regarding the missing driver: I know another user with a Netbook with GMA 3150. As soon as he replied me, I let you know if he could find a win10 driver. Edit: I received a feedback. The other user told me he use Win 10 pro 32bit. Win10 could find his own drivers.As you use 64bit, I can't tell you for sure if you also will find the driver automatically.
