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.)

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.
Thanks

I just purchased an ACER ASpire R13 at costco and am looking to use it as my desktop also.  I wanted to know what equipment is recommended to do this, docking station, additional external hard drive, etc. and any tips/advice on setting it up.

I'd start with a Mediasonic docking station, external keyboard, mouse/trackball. USB DVD BluRay burner, external GB drive for backup, two 24" monitors, and a wired gigabit line. That is what I have.

Will my ACER Aspire be good enough for me to work from home as an independent contractor? I was hoping to use dual monitors with it too but it has only one VGA. Could I use the HDMI to set up the second monitor if I purchase the right adapter? Thank you!

Helping a friend try to make an Acer Aspire M desktop often desktop Aspire Acer crashes ca late work OS is -bit Vista The computer belonged to an older gentleman who rarely used it and never updated it so I started by cleaning out the garbage with CCleaner then updating Vista thru SP During the update processes it crashed - time BSOD Last thing I installed on it was Google Earth which crashed it if you attempted to drag the border of the GE window out to make it larger and sometimes just when GE Acer Aspire desktop crashes often loaded The computer came with the minimum GB RAM required to run Vista and it was VERY slow doing everything so I suggested replacing one of the MB memory DIMMs with a GB DIMM which we did so we now had GB of RAM Some things especially the bootup went much faster thereafter but it was still a slug otherwise So took the drastic step of a destructive recovery using the disks Acer provides and during that process Acer Aspire desktop crashes often it also crashed a couple of times After the recovery started to download install the updates Crashes started again Thinking that maybe one of the original MB DIMMs might be bad and of course it was the one we left in So swapped it for the one we had pulled Made no difference so the memory is not what causing the problem Checked to make sure all cables were not loose ran Speccy to check the CPU s temperature usually - degrees C and the drive s temp degrees C so crashes aren t due to overheating Software originally came with Norton Internet Security which can cause problems so early on I installed the Norton Uninstaller removed NIS and replaced it with Avast Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware Scans revealed infections of any kind Also did a chkdsk f on the drive found no errors So what do you think ails this computer nbsp

Welcome to seven forums tflazio: The only drivers that are avalible on the Acer site for the Conexant Audio drivers are 32 bit drivers Acer Support - Drivers & Download I also checked the windows update catalog(only 32bit XP) and the Acer drivers are more current. Please go to device manager.click on audio>properties>details tab>drop down menu> hardware id. Copy and paste the ID srting and maybe someone can find a workable driver. Through some searching it seems that that chip has been used by various other laptop manufacturers and some have supported Vista. Thanks Fabe

My Aspire M5100 Desktop computer will not start or boot up properly. The blue indicator is on to show that I have started it up. But, my monitor keeps displaying: ''No video input''. I can hear that the drive is not booting properly as it used to. This started about a month ago, but at times it did display and boot properly. Now it does nothing at all. I cannot get my recovery discs to work either as the drive does not seem to function properly.Can anyone help me, and also is it possible anyone has a service manual for this model? I've Googled it but seem to only get a user manual and a service manual for the laptop. But I need one for this desktop.
 

A:Acer Aspire M5100 Desktop will not boot up

I'd start with the power supply first, partial failures are very common with Acer's. Do you have access to another power supply that you can try?

Acer doesn't provide service manual's.

Are you looking to see if other people think that its a good machine? Its kind of a subjective answer. What are you looking to use it for?

Looking at the product page for the X3400 desktop on acer's website, it says the computer comes with 4gb of ddr3, maybe just a typing error?

I've been handed an Acer Aspire E360 desktop that should have Media Center on it but is missing the c:\windows\system32\hal.dll file. The recovery partion (<ALT> + F10) refuses to run also.

I ordered the 6 cd Recovery Disk set from Acer to try and roll this system back to factory.

When I boot from the System Disk it asks for a language and then to insert the:

(RCD[Backup Disc DVD1/CD2])

into the optical drive. After inserting and clicking on OK it runs for a few seconds and ejects the disk then shows the exact same prompt. It just loops on this. If I insert any other disk it complains about a missing file and I have to reboot.

How do I get this system to reload Media Center from Acer's disks?

Hi;Have you tried disabling encrpytion on the router and trying to log on ?

Also,make sure that mac address filtering is not enabled
I also note that this may not have come with a wireless adapter as shipped.I am assuming that you have added an external wireless adapter.
Also,May we see:
Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Welcome to TSG!

Did you:
Slipstream the SATA drivers into a new XP disk or
Provide the SATA drivers on a floppy disk by pressing F6 at the start of Setup when prompted or
Set the BIOS to ATA or Compatible mode instead of AHCI/SATA Native (wording will vary)?
Be easiest to change the controller setting in the BIOS if it has that option.

Hello, Yes it's a µATX form factor so no problems. But you won't be able to use the pre-installed version of Windows.

Hi,

I'm having problem with my cousins computer. It's a Acer Aspire Desktop. The computer is working alright until they moved residency to another State. After they set it up, it won't work anymore, It will boot up and will say checking NVRAM then after it won't continue to load, just a blinking cursor.

I tried some suggestions already, resetting BIOS by removing the board battery, jumpers, unplugging drives, modem and memory card but still the same. I'm thinking to replace the battery but I just want to try out first other options.

I really appreciate any assistance

Hi, I unplugged my computer a couple of weeks ago and returned today to turn it back on, unfortunately getting no response at all. Ive tried a different power cable and a different outlet. I've followed directions given to somebody else on here, unplugging....holding power button for 40 seconds....plugging back in and trying to power on, with no luck. The computer is about 3 years old. Is there any advice you can give me?
Thank you!

Help!
I have an Acer AST 160-US321H desktop PC that is not connected to the internet and used for home projects only. Today I can not get it to come up at all. I have turned it on and off several times hoping to reset whatever went wrong. Also, there is a red light shining next to the green power light once I power it up. Nothing happens on the screen. The CPU is running (at least the fan) but that's about it. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

This thing has a small adapter, not a power supply, that looks like a laptop adapter. The output is 19volts at 65 watts.

According to Acer's forums, I can put a low profile video card in it. I don't think my 1 gig NVidia video card will work in it.

The desktop case has two DVI outputs. And a card slot that supports the pciex16 video cards.

I would prefer under 100 dollars.

Thanks !

I have an Acer Aspire AX3400 desktop running Windows 7 64bit. I have been having all sorts of problems over several months. The machine, when left unattended, appears to be always "recovering from serious error" with subsequent memory dumps. The machine would not shut down without me having to switch it off. Subsequently the machine would not start up properly. iTunes would not open without a reboot etc etc etc. I decided to backup all my data and restore to factory settings. This has failed/ is incomplete. It hung for several hours at different stages of the process. I keep getting the message "Setting up PC for first use" and does not move on from there. I'm unable to run in Safe Mode because the setup hasn't been completed. I have a restore disk but this hasn't helped. Would really appreciate some help.

Did you try to restore from the disc or the recovery partition.

Install one of the adapters, make sure you have the latest driver from the adapter manufacturer's web site, and ...

What exactly happens when you try to connect?

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

I can enter the BIOS menu fine so I am stumped. If anyone has this issue or knows how they solved it please let me know.

You can work through the steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start to check for infection, try repairing the boot and System files, to see if you can get into Safe Mode or normal boot, then continue until its fixed with the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

But if you have the Acer factory install then that is the worst install of Win7 one can have to begin with. So what I would do is Clean Reinstall Windows 7 following everything that works best in Win7 in tens of thousands of installs we've directly helped with here, and which has been used by over a million consumers without a single complaint.

Everything needed is in the blue link, and you'll get and keep a perfect install to the exact extent you stick with the tools and methods given.

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.

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.

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 !!!

Actually on booting from the disc the screen shows two options: 1. fix startup problem 2. start window normallyEither choice will eventually end up with a pale screen with partial windows picture. On the reinstall disc sold on eBay it also comes with a hard disk. Has any one used this method and how would it work?

Try booting to Memtest86 you can burn a CD and I think it can also be run from a USB bootable flash drive. This will test your memory for problems and also let you know that the hardware in general will run (except the hard drive which is ignored at this stage.If the memory is good, then boot to your hard drive mfg's utility or Seatools from Seagate (DOS version) the same as Memtest but it tests your hard drive to see if it is just the drive that you cannot install on.If the memory and hard drive tests OK then you may just need to delete all current partitions on the hard drive before trying to install.If the memory does not test good, try cleaning the contacts on the memory with a soft pencil eraser and snapping them in and out 5 or 6 times to also burnish the slot's contacts. Then try memtest again on one stick at a time in case one stick is bad, swap and try again.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Is this normal for a 6 month old machine..? I can't update windows 10. The message says that there's not enough room to update windows 10, so I buy a 32 gig card....still it says theres not enough space,,,so I try a 32gig usb stick....still no joy.....So I take it back to PC World where I'm treated like a child and told that they won't take it back...they'll just send it back to Acer to have windows 8 put on ...??!  and did I realise it was a cloudbook and NOT a laptop...!!

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.

I finally found a soluation after months of wondering why this is happening. It's my Virgin Media connection, the modem/router as when I connected to my phones wifi, teethering, Acer Care Center instantly updated so something within Virgin Medias network is blocking connectivity. I did try the Virgin Media's router as cause by diabling firewall etc. but with no joy I gave up but didn't try another connection until just now with tethering where as stated problem is sorted. I will report this to Virgin Media and post back anything relevant to this.

Second, Laptop boots, 20 seconds, to Acer screen then stops.
Can only switch off power from that point.
 

A:Acer Aspire screen problem and only boot to Acer screen

Tapping the screen you could have a loose connection from the LCD Panel to the MOBO connector, but you see if you did the screen would dim out. In your case you have the the same issues that tell me that the LCD Panel is faulty. If this unit is still under warranty then have ACER service the unit or take it to ACER dealer who can either send it back to ACER or they can order the panel and replace it for you at no cost, but then it has to be under warranty. If not you'll have to pay the cost of ordering the part, labor to install it. Find out cost prior to signing any agreement.

On your other issue, did you replace or upgrade the battery or memory? If not then remove the battery and plugin the power only. Try this again does it boot the ACER logo and Windows. Can you put your ear down to the keys or palm rest and hear the HDD spinning up?
If not either the HDD is DOA or faulty power module on the MOBO or just bad MOBO. Again same as above if it's under warranty call or take it to ACER factory service dealer.

Make sure if you had a good battery on this laptop that all switches are switched to the lock mode for the battery.

A:acer aspire

Well...you would have to look at the Acer system docuemtation...if you want to restore to factory defaults.

In lieu of that, I would suggest updating your XP CD via slipstreaming and then using that to reinstall XP.

Hi

First thing is to see what the Blue Screen is saying and then we can go about curing it. It shouldn't be a hopeless case so no need to panic yet.

Start up the machine but keep tapping F8 during start-up. You'll get a menu similar to the one you've seen but there'll be an option in there that says "Disable Automatic System restart" or something along those lines.

Highlight that one and then when it reaches the bluescreen, it'll simply halt - so now you can copy what it says (The first line is the important one, an error message followed probably by an error code starting 0x.....)

Post back here with what it says & we'll take it from there. Have you got an XP CD? We'll probably be needing that next - but don't panic, we're not going to be simply wiping the system - oh no

Cheers

Usually these beep codes indicate bad graphics hardware or bad ram.

Is there any combination of long and short beeps, or are they only the same duration? Is there any change in pitch from beep to beep?

I'm so disappointed with this outwardly beautiful notebook Little did I realize less than years ago when I bought this th generation Intel i cpu notebook I would be stuck with a useless LEMON in Yes Aspire S7-191 Acer Windows were ugly that's for sure and Acer Aspire S7-191 yes I should have realized when the ram maxed out at a pathetic Gb it had a very limited mother board and was far far away from being future proof nbsp but hey I fell for its beauty and charm At the time of purchase I was tossing up between this model and the Acer Aspire S - as I already have a th generation Intel i cpu nbsp desktop and being a Forex Currency Trader I needed something very portable but modestly powerful and the beauty of this machine was a bonus When trading in restaurants and coffee shops I could not reacall the number of compliments this machine attracted Why would Acer nbsp design and produce such a wonderful looking machine with such deliberate short comings nbsp Then Microsoft released Windows for free who wouldn't want to upgrade However for those who did not want to exercise a recovery within a certain timeframe you lost your original OS Windows and that was my experience Now I'm stuck with a machine of very limited capability the wifi no longer works nbsp and Acer could not care less and for this privilege I paid over AU I own Acer devices there will never be a th

That laptop nagged you when it was new to make a Factory default backup. A recovery, so if something happened you could recover it to the way you received it from Acer.http://us-store.acer.com/erecovery/rcd/

A:Hello everyone! Acer Aspire ZC-602

You already have newer drivers than the Acer's one, so no need to update it.

Hi there! I have this new Acer Aspire Z3-710 over a week now and have completed all set-ups (i guess). At first it was all doing great but now whenever i open a File Explorer, point to any folder and right click, the pointer turns into that circle waiting thing and then the opened explorer stops responding. But after a long while of waiting, the rightclick dropdown appears. It takes ages. Please help me on this. I don't think I already got a virus since im still running the free version of McAfee antivirus. Cheers,jogdeguzman

A:Acer Aspire Z3-710

First of all you need to check if computer is using high CPU usage, to check this please follow the steps mention below:-Press 'Ctrl' key +'Alt' key +'Del' key to bring up the windows task manager.-Click on 'Performance' tab and check for 'CPU Usage'.-If it is high, you need to go on 'Processes' tab and end unwanted process that are running.-Now you need to install genuine antivirus in the computer and run the full scan to detect the virus. Hope this will help you.

OK, I'm not sure this is the right place but, here goes...
I turn on my Acer Aspire 5332. It flashes onto the Acer Aspire Screen, then says "Windows is loading files in a black and grey screen. Then, it turns Dark Grey, and goes no further. I need to fix it! Any help? Can't replace parts. I need emergent help!

A:Acer Aspire Help?

Do you have a Windows 7 DVD?
If so, can you boot from it and run the "Startup Repair"?

My usual method for repairing boot problems, is to re-image my PC using my backup HDD images.
It's much faster than trying to diagnose and fix the problem.

You might have to wait for one of the Boot Problem experts to drop in.
Sorry.

So i have an acer aspire 3000 with the stock 256mb ram and im looking to upgrade it to 1gb
my problem is that the manual gives the maximum memory module size as 512mb in ech of the two slots while two ram choosers on the kingston and corsair websites have told me that i can use 1gb modules
I would like to know if i can actually use 1gb modules as it is simpler and i can upgrade again in the future (and if this is possible can i out both the old 256mb module and new 1gb modules in together to give 1280 mb)
thanks
 

A:Ram for Acer aspire

That should work , using the 1gb and 256 sticks, but it might not run at the full ddr333 mhz speed. the reason it might not be posted like that on acer's website is because they "do not recommend it" for the reason i stated before.

does my acer aspire as8730-6918 need two ram cards the same size or can i run different cards like a 2gb and a 4gb what limits the maximum capacity would like to install 8gb 4gb x 2 the maximum capacity is 4gb what governs the maximum capacity can i change any parts like the chipset or bois want to run 6gb - 8gb pc6400 backwards compatible

A:acer aspire ram

The original hardware governs the max amount of RAM per slot and total allowed. It's very unlikely a BIOS update would add support for more RAM. Putting a 4 gig module in would likely result in only 2 gig being used, if it works at all. It's impractical to try and change the chip-set, it's soldered to the motherboard. Even if you could have it done it would cost you more than the laptop is worth with no guaranty of success. You'll more than likely just brick your laptop.

By that stage I had to shut it down completely as I had to get on aeroplane. Now whdn I try rebooting I get not very far - says no rebootable devise when it to self diagnose and repair it. I have no idea what to do now. No starteup dics came with the laptop Also the fan is making loud whirring noise. Any help would be much appreciated.Kind regardsKatherine
