Preferred Solution: What software comes preload on an Acer Tower

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.)

A: What software comes preload on an Acer Tower

That is hard to answer seeing how the software can vary between models. For the most part it is bloat-ware; shortcuts to promoted software by Acer, their recovery software, and some trial software like antivirus and Office. You will find this with most manufactures. When you purchase a desktop you can always delete and remove the advertisement shortcuts, trial software and install your own software preferences.

A:acer recovery missing preload.tag

I have received no responses so I took the laptop in to a local computer repairer. At first they said something had wiped my hard drive clean except for my documents, that the hard drive was fine and they would install xp again and get it back working. Fee -200 dollars. Several hours later they called and said that they were having trouble installing the xp operating system and perhaps my hard drive was bad after all. I needed a new hard drive and they will install xp -now 250 dollars. Am I stupid? Should I care what hard drive they put in, other than the 100gig they took out? Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi folks,
Running an Acer Veriton M2 series with a Core2 Duo E7500, and I'm getting sudden, random reboots. Attached is the text output from BlueScreenView.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.

A:Random Reboots on Acer Veriton tower

Just a suggestion...rather than supplying a solitary event from BSV...I would supply all.A variation of the standard blurb many of us use:Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html .Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.When autoscan is done (screen comes up), click Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.Save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.IMO, there's little to be gained by reviewing a single BSOD error message...whereas a number of messages can allow perception of a trend and more detail on what may be going wrong with the system.Louis

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, I am going to upgrade my graphic card to ATI 5770 so I need a new power supply which has power about 550--600 watt. But the most frustrating problem is that I failed to find a proper power supply with the correct dimension.
I have an HP pavilion e9300 which uses a very wired power supply tower-150mm(W) 86(H) 140(D). But so far all the PSUs I found is the standard size --150mm(W) 86(H) 150(D) which cannot fit in my setup.

So could any PC God give me some suggestion, please??
Is any PSU with the size of my tower or can I just simply install a bigger PSU which can still successfully power up the comptuer?

Thx in adance.
 

A:Power supply bigger than the tower - frustrated by HP PSU tower

If the power supply will physically fit your case, it should work fine with your computer. Will the extra 10mm interfere internally with anything inside the PC?

Hello,

I got a new 4G connection. But I don't have an unlimited data usage plan.

Since it is 4G, the internet speed is extremely fast. As a result, while I watch YouTube videos, YouTube buffers the whole video in seconds. This means, if I click on a video of 10 minutes length, and after watching the video for 5 minutes... let's say I don't wanna watch the whole thing and close the tab. It means that although I watched for 5 minutes, I used up the data for 10 minutes since YouTube had streamed the whole video within seconds after I clicked on the video.

Is there a way to tell YouTube NOT to preload way too ahead of the point I'm currently watching?

A:Is there a way to tell YouTube not to preload too much?

People usually want it the other way around. I can think only about something like NetLimiter or NetBalancer.

I need to move a windows 2000 server from one hardware platform to another. I will be using ghost. My biggest upfront concern is the difference in hard disk controllers. Currently using a SCSI card. I'm planning on moving it to a new server with a different, integrated controller.

How do I preload the drivers for the new, different disk controller so that when I boot the image on the new hardware, it will be able to recognize the hardware and boot?

Most of the things I've read suggest first adding the new disk controller to the existing server to load the drivers, then create the image but since this controller is integrated that is not an option.

Any Thoughts?
 

A:How to Preload drivers?

Well if the drivers is a setup file, then it can install the drivers. Otherwise if you can get the INF and sys files, just plop them on the old machine and when you transfer to the new machine, you can point the hardware wizard to the driver file and it will do the rest.

I dont know if this is the right place to put this, and if it isn't I'm sorry. I HAVE posted this at the steam forums, but no replys so far. Anyway:

Ok, HL2 was preloading over the weekend at the same time CS and DOD were loading. However, once they were done, HL2 stopped loading. And what worries me is the fact that when I was looking in the Support section(yes, I looked), one of the answers(that didn't help me), had the preloadi of HL2 in the moniter box. I dont have that. I just have the preload box, which freezes Steam whenever I try to press cancel or continue.

I have restarted my PC and Steam numerous times, so what could be the problem?

I have also uninstalled it, and reinstalled it without my firewall on. I have also tried to cancel it, but it doesnt cancel.

preload.js seems to be a JavaScript library that lets you manage and co-ordinate the loading of assets and data.
imonomy - In-Image Ads That Work is an advertising service.

Do two things at first:

1. Check for it or anything related to it in startup.

Right click on the taskbar and click on "Task Manager" in the context menu.It will open Task Manager with "Processes" tab selected. Click on the "Startup" tab.Select them all one by one and click "Disable" at the bottom right corner.Disable everything there other than the antivirus.
See how it goes. Let us know.

2. Scan your system for adware. Use ADWCleaner for this purpose.

3. Also scan for any possible Malware. Download and install MBAM Free version. Then reboot the computer in Safe mode and scan the entire computer with it.

Hello guys!

Last night I closed my laptop to sleep as usual, and today I woke up to a asus preload wizard screen, which of course I canceled, because I didn't wanna loose my data. (Last backup is 3 month, and I have the most important stuff but still).

I've had that once before, and when I just runned windows normaly it went away. This time it didn't work.
Things I tried :

- Safe mode
- Start with the last know good configuration in BIOS

None of them works and always resend me to asus reload, which when canceled sens me to a choice of either windows repair startup which I don't wanna run, or to run windows as usually which fails and sends me to asus load again.

How can I save my data and get rid of this problem?

Thank you very much !

A:Asus preload wizard loop (Virus?Bug?)

You can attach the harddisk to another PC to get the data off. Or try to use a Linux Live distro if you also have an external drive.
Just make sure you don't install Linux and select something like "try" so it loads into memory only.

The Recovery drive is normally pretty full, but all it contains is the recovery files to restore the computer to the original factory state so it's not a problem, it's generally just big enough to hold the recovery files and nothing more. So your solution is actually to do nothing as nothing is wrong and doing something will likely break your recovery software.

It sounds like the recovery partition is corrupted. It could be a failing hard drive to. You may be able to order a set of recovery disks from ASUS. They will likely charge you for them though. Can you read the entire product code from the COA sticker? You'll need to know the version of Windows installed too. If you can get that info off of the COA sticker you can use it to reinstall Windows.

Hello, yesterday I bought Acer 640p scanner. But have problem with software. There wasnt original software disk, only disk with burned last version of MiraScan ... I installed it. But in the start menu there isnt any exe file to start and to start scanning. Googled-it and found a way to get it scanning via Adobe Photoshop, but when i tried, photoshop crashes. So I need software that supports my scanner and to be able to scan.
Thanks in advance!

Go to www.acer.com and click support. You should be able to find drivers for it, then when you push the scan button, Microsoft scanning wizard should pick it up from there.

Hi all,,,,,,,,,I have an Acer Aspire 7502 notebook that I did have vista installed but as I did not like Vista, I reinstalled with XP.
The thing is I cannot use the quick launch keys and I suspect that I need the empowering technology software to make it work. Everthing else seems to be Ok and I have looked and cant find it for the XP, even on Acer`s home site.
Could someone please help me with this problem. ?

Did that Acer Aspire 7502 come with Vista pre-installed? How did you install XP in it?

I just checked the ACER site. It lists a 7520, but not a 7502 for the Aspire. Are you sure about the model number?

It has Acer-related software for download for Vista, but not for XP.

With Acer Laptop Aspire model 5532, Acer BIOS 1.07, scheduled virsus scans will not start. Have had the same issue with three sucessive anti-virus programs in last week. I set the scheduled time correctly, but the scan does not start. Currenly using MSE; manual scans work and the system catches viruses that were attempted to load. Had exact same problem with AVG and McAfee. And the clock in the Notification Area shows the correct time.

I have a new Acer 5551 laptop (Windows 7 OS)

I want to create back up discs so that if the hard drive fails I can replace the hard drive and use the discs to restore it to the way it is now (same drivers, operating system etc.).

Please could you tell me what back up system I should use (there appears to be at least two Acer backup and Windows 7).
Thanks in advance.
 

A:Acer Back up Software

Win7 has an imaging program in Control Panel/Backup. This will restore the OS and any programs.
The recovery disks usually do the same, so I'd say use both.
Update them occasionally.
There is also a backup program in Control Panel you can use to keep your files backed outside of regular imaging or recovery disk creation.

I bought an Acer Aspire 8920G It's a great latop, but like any other computer it comes with tons of useless software. However there are a few that i really like and want to keep. It came with Vista Premium 64bit, which i don't want i have made my own version of Vista Ultimate from the app Vlite. It runs alot faster and it is easier to work with such as it doesn't stop driver signing. OK so the problem is i want to install this OS, but I need those few acer programs, such as the Bio protecion that scans you finger and all sorts of cool features. Acer does not ship their software with the laptop and they will not send me a cd of it even though i offered to pay for it! Anyone know where i can get it?

If you can't buy it and it's not available as freeware and you want a legal version you might want to consider Open Source versions:

"Usually" the Acer recovery partition was a hidden partition; inaccessible by the usual means; at least it was some time back. Sometimes called a PQ partition if I remember correctly (at least for Acer laptops a wee while back). It was usually first item on the hard drive too.You seem to suggest that the system was initially Vista; then you took it up to win-7... Possibly in the process of going to win-7 the (Vista) recovery partition was destroyed; or at least overwritten by a win-7 version?This rather olde post has a very helpful response from Johnw - it's the best answer entry too.http://tinyurl.com/hl8nugxFollow John's routine and see if you can "see" any evidence of a recovery partition?This is another approach too:http://tinyurl.com/l7u3q5zand this may also explain "your" particular drive partitioning as was and possibly is now:http://tinyurl.com/hr4jceoIt would appear that in some more recent systems the PQ/Recovery partition is now flagged as D: ; and thus if per chance your IT chums got at that D partition on your laptop.. then they erased its contents when they reformatted it...?

Ok, so earlier today i decided that i needed to restore my laptop to factory default. As you can see from the title, i use an acer laptop which means i used the acer Erecovery software. All went well at first, although it took a stangely long time at a screen which said "setup is starting." The problem now is, I am now stuck on the acer 'software installation screen!'

A:Laptop stuck on acer software installation after system restore

Have you categorically rejected the idea of doing a clean install, as opposed to a recovery to factory specs via the Acer software?

Acer software and support being what it is, I'm not surprised by your predicament and don't have a solution to that other than to wait as long as you can stand to see if it sobers up.

I do see that you have had a similar problem already on this forum but it didn't fix mine (I probably wasn't doing something right).
My Laptop wont start up it goes to the Windows Recovery error page where you have to choose either Launch Startup Repair (recommended) or Start Windows normally. Both of these options lead you to the same result to the Asus Preload Wizard page.
I tried pressing F8 and F9 but didn't get anything.
Appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you

I had to buy a new computer A couple months ago I was using an Emachine desktop computer I know Emachines aren t anywhere near being quot the quot but when you come from Tower Old a not so financially stable family you are not greedy Anyway the computer worked for the longest time and I had a separate tower as well The separate tower had Adobe Photoshop on it and that is a program I love to play around in and so I would just take the chord from the back of my Emachines tower that led to the monitor and I would plug it into the older tower without powering down or anything Obviously my first mistake but I didnt knw that at the time So I kept doing this and then one day I went to plug the chord back from the old tower to the Emachines tower and nothing happened It was like the Emachines tower was sending no signal to the monitor anymore I tried different monitors and none of them worked there s something wrong with the tower now Maybe the video card I am computer illiterate to the core so alot of abbreviations tend to stump me If someone could help I would highly appreciate it Being a recent graduate from high school I have pictures on that Emachine tower that I do not want to part with nbsp

Dell outlet would be a good place to start. Personally, I would save up a little more and wait for a good deal at Dell.

This is an example of what they have:

System Price : $269.00

Alright, I have this game named Sim Tower, which is a tad bit slow (but shouldnt be). I can manage to install it fine, and even play it off the CD quite well if I wanted to. Although when I start the game, it automatically goes into fast mode (which means time is fast forwarded until there is activity with the people in the game). It hasnt got too much to do with fast mode, but this is when it effects the game speed a lot (mainly the cursor though). I take fast mode off, and then the cursor drags all over the screen, making it nearly impossible to play. At most last time I got to put in some office floors, but Alt F4 Seemed like the best option after that. I have tried running it in compatability mode, and even with this kinda of patch. Any suggestions on how to stop my cursor from slowing down?

A:New SSD for old tower?

Well there are three issues I see;
1 Your mb only has sata 2 ports and that will limit or throttle the speed of a modern ssd. It will still be a HUGE improvement over a mech hard disk however you will be somewhat limited.
2 Next issue is that xp [your os] does not support TRIM or wear leveling for the ssd. This causes a degrading of performance over time. Sometimes the drive mfg has a utility that will do basically the same thing. Another option is to make an image of the ssd and store the image on a second hd, external, etc. Once the image is made, boot with parted magic linux and secure erase the ssd. Once the ssd is secure erased, restore the image. This will also restore the ssd drive's speed.
3 XP does not apply the correct partition offset for a ssd. This can be edited manually using linux OR you can create the partitions with a win7/win8 boot disk then install xp.

Other than the above issues, you can install a ssd drive and you will see a significant improvement in performance however not as much as with a modern mb supporting sata3.

At a job I left sometime back and in my current position we are using XP on newer and smaller HP towers. They run very quietly. I am trying to set my unit up to do voice-over freelance work. Is there anything I can do to run a bit quieter. Also I downloaded a backup program called LojiklSweep for my system. Any suggestions for checking to make sure they have all of my backup material on file in case this older system takes a dive?

I almost had my tower catch fire because the power supply fan stopped. The cputhermometer software wouldn?t shut it down because the cpu operates at only 40c but the mother board and the other wiring was melting. By the time the cpu would be effected by the ambient temperature it would be too late. I am trying to find a method of sensing an overheating problem which would be an independent stand alone system. Even though my system has fans everywhere and is dust free I still want it to be safe from setting its self on fire when I?m away.
Would someone please know of a solution.

Hi all

I have a Tuniq Tower 120 on an LGA 775 board.

Does anyone know whether I can get the appropriate rear bracket to fit it on the Gigabyte EX58-UD5 motherboard with an i7 920.

I checked Tuniq's site but they seem to have bought out a new tower for the i7 and I can't find any info on whether it'll fit or I need a bracket(or whether I can get one)

I would have thought the original 120 would do a good job cooling an i7 and I don't want to spend more than I need.

Anyone know anything or have any comments?

Thanks, John

A:Can I use my Tuniq Tower 120 with this lot?

I don't own one.

A little web searching makes it look like Tuniq hasn't produced a backplate and retention bracket for this model for Socket 1366.

I suppose that they could if they wished. My cooler is a Thermalright Ultra 120. It was an existing product to which Thermalright added Socket 1366 support. (Works well on an I7 920 at 3.8 GHz.)

I just purchased a new PC tower. I stayed with Windows 7 because didn't like the way 10 functioned. The tower is thin. The one feature I don't like is the DVD drawer is vertical. Can I lay it on its side if I put legs on the tower to allow for the circulation for the cooling fan? I have a couple of older grandchildren (H.S. & College) that come to the house and use the computer. I know that they are careful, but I have a concern about their use of the DVD/CD drawer.

Ok, i have a great idea, it may be idiotic so that is why i am posting this here.. to get some feedback.

I have gotten my cpu down to 32 C when idle using arctic silver 5.

That is very good, yet I am still not satisfied!

I know that water cooling is even better, but even that can only get the temperature down to as cool as the ambient room temperature is , correct? which would be only as low as about 22C then.

My idea is.... buy a small refrigerator or freezer and put my whole cpu tower inside!!

this should get the temperature down to about 0C or lower with a freezer!

Anytime I want to use the cd drive, i simply open the freezer door, not a big deal! This also allows me to overclock a lot!

What does anyone think of this idea? Would it somehow be dangerous?

appreciate any input thanks

Hi and welcome :wave:
Plugging in the HDD is easy, only has one connector for the data and a molex for the power. Jumper settings are on the info sticker ontop your HDD. The most you'll run into is windows xp not booting properly, in which a windows Repair *Not a Reinstall/Format* will fix.

If you have any more questions, please start a new thread in the HDD and Network section of the forum with an appropriate title.

Do you happen to have any of the computer's specs you can post?
Problems like this could be a number of things, but my guess is either dead PSU or motherboard.

Let's start here: open up the case, and see if there are any led lights on the motherboard that are lit up, even when the power is off, as long as it is plugged in you should get something.
