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.)

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.

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.

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

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.

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

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.
<peace>

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.

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.

You'd have to do a clean install, with the proper media and Key.
Unless the machine has at least 4GB RAM there is no point, as it's likely to be slower running x64 than x86.

There are a lot of variables here. The easiest place to start is with a power reset. Remove the AC Adpater and Battery, hold the power button down for 20-30 seconds and then reconnect the AC Adapter and try to power the device on. If it still isn't working after that you may want to check the AC Adapter. Finally, you may need to have the device serviced.

When you boot from win7 disk before you start the installation press shift+f10 which brings command prompt and type 'diskpart' and then 'list disk' then clean the disk by selecting it for example... 'select disk 0' then type 'clean' once cleaned set any partitons you want on the win7 install steps and you shouldn't have any problems.

In particular run a full Disk Check from DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options Command Line, followed by SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail to help work through the other steps in order until if necessary you run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall. You can rescue your files at any time using that step.

HiI recently was asked to update a V5-571 as the wireless card had passed away and the owner wanted to advance to Win 10. The card installation went well with it being recognised by device manager but, according to settings, it was turned off. I tried all the FN/F3 combinations with no indications registering. I installed Win 10 home to see if that would resolve the issue but it didnt even with a download of the latest version of Launch Manager. Still no joy - am I missing something obvious or is there something else I need to do. The machine has an Intel i3 and 8gb of RAM.

I am trying to install XP on Acer Aspire E15 which has Win 8.1 pre-installed. I tried several metods includin nLite and AHCI drivers but still no luck.Can you help out?

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.

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5542.  It came with Windows 7, and had MyWinLocker Yo-Safe pre-installed.  Since I upgraded to Windows 10 MyWinLocker Yo-Safe won't open.  After I enter my password in the MyWinLocker Yo-Safe window it says Yo-Safe is open in a little pop-up window on the lower right of the screen, but Yo-Safe doesn't show up on the This PC window, and the mouse-over of the tray icon still says it's closed.

Hi there, I have an Acer Aspire One and for some reason it will not start up. Every time I turn it one it shows the start up Acer screen for about 3 seconds then immediately shows an error that reads: "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll Please re-install a copy of the above file". It is an Acer Aspire One Model NO: KAV10 and SNID: 91011971916. Also, everytime i try to use the recovery option by pressing ALT f-12 it takes me to the recovery screen but does not allow me to even choose a recovery option. There is no disc drive but I do have a flash drive available if that file is in fact download-able. Or if anyone has a recovery disc that can be transferred to a flash drive that would be great. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, ALT + F10 when pressed at start up should bring up the Acer eRecovery environment.

At the Acer eRecovery screen
Choose the Recovery Actions - select Next.
Choose the Restore option.
There may be two to choose from, System Restore/Recovery - Reinstall Application/Drivers.
Choose System Restore/Recovery.

But all of your data and files will be lost and overwritten.
======
To try and save any needed data and files use a USB External DVD Drive - similar to one shown here.

Either use the DVD drive to re-install an operating system - or use the Linux Live Cd to find and save needed data and files.

mexcracker,
 
You can access the OSD and set your monitor to search for the HDMI (digital) connection and see if that works.
 
You can also try this:

Control Panel
Power Options
Changed advanced power settings
Scroll down and expand PCI Express
Expand Link state power management
Turn both to off

As long as your netbook meets all of the system requirements as stated on Microsoft's Windows 10 website (System requirements - Microsoft Windows), then you should be good to go.
But if you don't have a sufficient RAM, an appropriate screen resolution to run Metro apps, and updated drivers, you're bound to run into a whole lot of problems.

Vrey frustrating! Have confirmed through multiple installations and roll backs that the trackpad becomes near unusable after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary update on my new Acer Aspire. The trackpad stutters across the screen, and the only resolution is to roll back to pre-Anniversary. I've confirmed with THREE fresh installations. Each time, prior to the Anniversary update, the trackpad is fine. After? NOT fine. In all cases, an external mouse works fine, but some driver is getting messed up with the Anniversary update, and I don't know what to do to fix it!

What do i need to do to get this computer back in shape, considering he might not recognise the new drivers due to the not working dvd drives or the usb from where i could upload some new drivers.

Hi everybody!
I apologise for opening once again the same threat but I have a doubt.
I have the original version of windows 7 professional cd and I am almost ready to format my acer aspire 4315, which is now running with xp, and install the windows 7.
However, it seems that the model I have is not compatible with 7.
In the acer website it has no drivers for the windows 7.
What shall I do?
You think that acer will provide drivers soon or that windows 7 include drivers or I shall not install 7

You will be taking a risk. Do you have a backup drive?

If you could please fill in your system specs, we might be able to dig a little deeper for drivers for you.

Have Acer Aspire 5741Z-5433 purchased 10/2010.   Is running Windows 10 SP1.  No problems.Should I try to load free Windows 10 ?   I intend to buy newer laptop in next 6 mos to 1 year from now which will have Win 10, of course.  Should I leave well enough alone for now and not upgrade this Aspire to Win 10?

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).

First Create a Recovery Drive. You need a 16GB USB drive.I upgraded a V3-551 from 8.1 and had no problems and a Aspire 5250 from Win 7 without a error or a driver problem. Others using laptops (made) for Win 10 have problems.If you made your Recovery Drive, you're protected, go ahead and upgrade. If you have problems, try rolling it back or do a Full Recovery.Use the following steps to create your backup drive:Press the Windows () key + Q.Type Recovery, and click Acer Recovery Management.Click Create Factory Default Backup.Select Copy content from the recovery partition to the recovery drive, and click Next.Select your USB Flash Drive, and click Next.Click Create. When asked to delete the recovery partition from your computer, click No.Now you are protected. You can format the HDD, if need be, and recover your laptop to Factory configuration.

I wouldn't necessarily trust dxdiag with something like this. But, then again, the sticker I cannot see clearly could also be wrong.Could you please take a close-up picture of the sticker? Thanks.

Hey all,

I am new to this thread and hope you can help.

I have done an upgrade on my Aspire 4520 from Vista to Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Everything has worked well accept two problems I cannot seem to correct.

1. I can't find my "Coprocessor" Driver

2. Once I did a fresh install Bios and Windows 7 don't recognize my DVD-RW rom.

When in Bios, the driver will open and close, but it is not recognized past that, and I can't locate it anywhere in Windows.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi, I'm running Windows 10 on a Acer Aspire S7-392-6832 laptop. Lately I've been getting jealous of my Macbook friends because of the four-finger swipe that quickly switches the last two open windows (effectively the same as Alt-Tab on my laptop) However, I was wondering why my laptop is not concidered to have a "Windows Precision Touchpad". The drivers that I use (ELANtech - the main driver, and Synaptics) allows for 3 or 4 finger gestures, so surely my expensive 2013 ultrabook laptop has a touchpad that is good enough. Does anyone know how to make the touchpad show up as a "precision" model so I can use the useful gestures (that includes the app-switching in OS X)?  I've tried reinstalling the Synaptics and ELANtech drivers and messing with some other options but that did not work for me.  Thank you.

However, after the installation is done, none of my Drivers work. I went to search for the Drivers for my model, but they were all for windows 10 and were not compatible with my laptop. I've been trying to install wifi Drivers for the whole night but none of them work on my laptop.Does anyone know what wifi Drivers to install so it can work on windows 7?

Hi!

I'm trying (and failing hard) to hook up a Homegroup network between a stationary PC, a D-Link DIR-825 router, and an Acer Aspire 6920G notebook. Both PCs run Windows 7 Ultimate. My homebuilt desktop PC gets or generates an IPv6 adress just fine, as does the router, but the notebook refuses categorically, whether via 802.11g, 802.11n, or cable hookup to the router, though IPv4 works perfectly.

I've checked the IPv6 protocol settings for both machines, and they're identical. The built-in nic on the notebook seems like it should be IPv6 compatible given that there are fields under Advanced Options in the hardware properties relating to IPv6, and according to other logs posted here that turned up while googling the 802.11 transciever, it too is IPv6 compatible.

I've tried the obvious (new drivers, no firewall, etc), but I still can't get it working. Is there anything else I should try before wiping the laptop clean and reinstalling it?

In order to use the Recovery CD's, you would need to boot directly from them.

To do this, go into your BIOS, and switch your Boot Priority to boot from the CD drive before the Hard drive.

I keep on getting the message Startup Repair is attempting to fix problems at startup.

I have an Acer Aspire Windows 7 Home Premium and used factory image disks to reinstall.

The program to restore system only asked for 1 of 3 system image disk.

The startup repair screen comes up every 3rd or 4th time I start up.

Otherwise everything runs smoothly.

Did you recently install any updates? First try a windows scan: Insert your windows 7> Click start > run> cmd> type: sfc /scannow. Allow it to fully complete the scan hopefully it will restore the .dll file. If that doesn't work again insert your windows 7 reboot and hit f12 boot from cd drive. Wait for the blue screen to appear that asks you if you want to Repair, re-install or esc. Hit "R" (Recovery Console) and when bios screen appears (assuming you don't have an admin pw if you do type that in if not just hit enter) Recovery Console is command based. You'll be asked for the drive that your Windows is installed on. Typically its "1" unless you have multiple installs.When you get to the prompt i.e, C:\WINDOWS>,then type: chkdsk /r

Let me know if this installs

 Changing the Operating System may cause driver conflicts. The compatible drivers for Windows 8.1 will not be available in the website for this laptop. Hence, some of the features on the laptop might not work after changing the OS.  1: Since you have already created the USB recovery media from the laptop, you do not have to copy anything else other than this.  Make sure you you backup all files before installing the OS, as it will remove all data from the laptop. I see that, you have the unused Pro retail key for the OS, hence, you do not have to have the OEM product key. You need to use the product key for Windows 8.1 Pro to activate it, not the Acer OEM product key.  In the BIOS, select BOOT tab.  Select BOOT MODE as Legacy Mode instead of UEFI.Disable Secure Boot. Under Boot Priority Order, you need to select 1 as CD/DVD (if you are using disc), or USB FDD or USB HDD (if you are using USB drive) to install Windows 8.1 Pro.  Then press the F10 key and select "Yes" to save the changes in BIOS.  ->You an install Windows 8.1 Pro using my ISO and installing the drivers from the Acer support website. As said before, there may driver conflicts.  -> If you want to switch back to Windows 8.1, you may use the USB reovery drive (which created you have created from the recovery partition). When you do this, the Windows 8.1 Pro and it's product key will be removed from the laptop and the factory shipped OS, drivers, apps (and the OEM product key) will be installed automatically. You do not have to use the Windows 8.1 Pro key with Acer OEM USB reovery media.  -> You need to do a clean install using the USB recovery drive to install factory shipped Windows on the laptop.

I have a Acer Aspire One D255, and would like to know if its likely to be Windows 10 compatible.
I have been through numerous websites seeking advice but they all just include the standard microsoft release. "use the button that displays at bottom of screen"
As you can imagine that button hasn't appeared on my screen.
 
Surely here on the Acer web site there can be a definitive list by now of which systems will be compatible?
 
Any help would be appreciated, obviously I assume meanwhile that its not compatible. which of course leaves me with a decision whether to uopgrade to a more up to date laptop. based on this level of support it wouldnt be Acer !
