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 everyone,
I have a Gateway M460 laptop comp. that for a few days the lcd had a light brown shadow on the left side of the screen. Then yesterday when turning it on the screen flashed about 3 times then went black. If you get the room light on it just right you can still see some of what is on screen. Can someone please advise me on what could be the problem. It is out of warranty so any help would be great. My wife uses it for school and needs it real bad.

Thank you,
Joe
 

A:Gateway M460 screen flashes then black

Appears your inverter has gone bad. It is replaceable cheaply if you do it yourself.
The inverter is about the shape and size of a Sharpie pen and tests behind the screen at the bottom. It plugs in with plugs and sockets at each end. You need the exact inverter for that model, but can often find suppliers at ebay where you can get the part for $20 to $30. It is about $75 to $100 at Gateway.
Replacement requires removing the screw covers (little flat round or rectangle rubberized cosmetic covers put there for appearance), then using a very good hard steel philips screwdriver to remove about 18 screws. (Be careful to mark the screws and have a screw map for replacement as not all screws are the same size.) Once the screws are off, you lift off the screen, remove the old inverter and plug in the new one. Now all you have to do is put in the screws carefully, and you are done except for the screw covers. Screw covers are the toughest part. You will likely need a type of rubber cement that does not go hard with age.
DO NOT GET A USED INVERTER. BUY NEW ONLY.

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.

Hi all,
I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 64-Bit (Windows 7 Home Premium) laptop that I bought before the summer, today a Windows Update has given me an Acer display update published on the 28/12/2011. I thought because I had my vga cable plugged into the TV Windows Update may have become confused but despite checking for updates again it still appears there as optional.

AMD/ATI is recognized by Windows and Windows Update and there had already been a display driver update not so long ago, so I cannnot understand why I'm receiving an update for the wrong machine?

A:Acer - Display - ACER S271HL update on Compaq Presario CQ56 64-Bit

Not actually for AMD/ATI almost monthly you can see a newer update become available and that's why you will see one listed as an optional hardware update for the integrated graphic chips on the laptop.

Since Windows detects the tv you are using as an external monitor that also becomes a detected hardware. If that happens to be an Acer brand tv that would explain why that particular update came about.

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 !!!

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.

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating.

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.

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating. Any thoughts?

Hello,

I have an Acer Extensa 5420 computer and the operating system installed is Vista.

I'm having trouble with the Crystal Eye's picture-taking. I turn it on (works just fine) but when I click the "take picture" button, it briefly shows up in the gallery bar underneath and disappears. I can't for the life of me figure out where it is sending them or why they are not staying in the gallery below the pictures like they used to. I can't find any way to adjust or figure out where they are being sent to.

Thanks for any help ,

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.

I hope this isn't dumb sounding but I was wondering if Acer would be one of the top 5 laptop manufacturers? I am looking at the Acer Ferrari 4000 laptop for school and I was just wondering. I know that Toshiba is very good but for the price the Ferrari seemed like a great, great deal. Another question I would have is if anyone has the new Acer Ferrari 4000 please post and tell me how you like it. I would really trust to hear something from someone here then at Newegg.

Thanks,

A:Acer in Top 5? (Acer Ferrari 4000)

I wouldn't look at the maker to the degree that you are. Acer is a name brand so you should not have any problems. I would concentrate on specs. As for the Ferarri it is a very powerful and good looking notebook, and it got excellent reviews. I would highly recomend the ferarri, it's deffinately going to be my next notebook.

My Acer Aspire 5612z, Dual-core celeron, 2GB ram, vista home premium 32bit, has two separate problems. Screen is filled with vertical red blue and white vertical stripes, if I tap the screen frame then the picture is ok for 30 mins or so, then goes stripey again. (Poss fault on FL board?).
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 laptop stuck on "ACER" screen.

Unless your laptop is the same model as you girlfriend's - or at least from the same laptop series - your recovery disk won't work, mainly because it will try to install the wrong drivers.

I think your best bet is to try to get it fixed under warranty. You may not need the receipt, you can check the laptop's warranty status here :- https://www.acer-apac.com/acer_web/

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.

I reformated one of my computers and I do not have the installation disk for it. I downloaded the driver, but part-way through installing the driver, it asks to insert the installation disks. Is there a way to download the files off of the disk from anywhere? Or any other way around it?

[EDIT]: The monitor is working, but I can't change my resolution from 640x480 or my colours from 16 Colours.

Great monitors for people on a budget. Acer also makes very good laptops. Never had a problem with Acer hardware or software. If the monitor looks good to your eyes and the price is right, go for it.

Try updating some of your drivers here: http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?...tx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012

Make sure to select the correct operating system in the drop-down box in the middle of the page. I would just do one driver at a time, restarting after each installation and then testing to see if your problem goes away. My gut says it would be the video/VGA driver, but that is just a gut.

Good luck!

Check for hidden updates just to make sure you have everything. Also, do a disc cleanup from the Start menu. Did you actually format from the Advanced menu or merely choose format for the installation? There is a difference.

Q: Acer

Hello
I apologize for the lack of information but I am trying to help a relative long distance who knows even less than I do about pcs.
He had his Acer worked on at Staples and when he got home, he could not get Comcast. Staples told him to go to Comcast.
I think he has Win 7 so shouldn't he click on the icon lower right for internet access and try to enter his password.
I think that should work but if he does not know his password, I think he could call Comcast for an interim one until he can set up his own.
If it does not work, I think he could right click and click trouble shooting or even to open the network and sharing center.
Again I apologize for the lack of information but I will contact him and ask for more details.
Do any of my suggestions hold water?
Thank you.

I searched their so called support website and could find nothing. I wanted to know how many slots are there and if I have to buy the whole 16gb or can I just add 8gb to the existing 8gb. Which knowing how these technology companies work I am sure they will force me to buy a whole new 16gb set.So did you ever find an answer to your question?Thanks man

While removing a short cut for opening a program that was in the Task Manager startup I noticed that the Acer Portal file was also in it. Does this mean it is also running in the background on start up? And, if so can I move it so it does not run during start up? I have not activated any of the Acer apps and at this time do not plan on doing so. I have specialized the use of this laptop and at this time do not plan to use any of the Acer apps.  The Apps file is enabled in the Task Manager. Can I just disable it so that it will not run on startup?Thanks
