How to Save the Processor Power?

Note: Create System Restore Point or have Backup before applying this Tweak.

When the processor gets heated then there is a lot chance of damaging.
It can be due to Fan problems, motherboard problems & many more.
One of the things which may cause your processor to heat is Checking of USB ports for any new devices.
Even if your PC is Idle the processor continue to check the USB ports.
In this tweak you will learn how to save the Processor Power & making your Processor cool without opening your CPU by increasing the time interval, so that processor checks the USB ports after a gap of time.
We will do this by USB idling...

To do so Open Registry Editor (regedit.exe) in Win XP & navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0000

Under 0000 create a new DWORD value & name it as Idle Enable & set it's value to 1 . This will enable USB idling.

After this Restart your PC.

Good Luck!

acer laptop restore factory settings?


If windows is running you can start it by going to Programs, Acer Empowering Technology and run the Acer eRecovery Management. Note that on the bottom of the eRecovery Management window are 3 choices, Backup, Burn Disk and Restore. Click on Restore. Here you have the choice of select Restore System to Factory Default.

If windows is not working but the system boots -
Reboot the system and when the Acer logo appears, hold down the ALT key and press F10. This starts the recovery process, just follow the instructions.

System Restore...


Did you set a restore point lately. You do need to do that occasionally

(for example after removing a virus)

Maybe your restore point is not valid anymore

you can do Your first port of call for System Restore problems should be the System

Restore Troubleshooter, which you'll find here. However, it's also possible

that one of your Restore points has become corrupt, in which case you'll
need to disable System Restore. This will delete all existing Restore points

and then re-enable it. To do so, right-click My Computer on the Start menu

or desktop and choose Properties -> System Restore tab. Tick the 'Turn off

System Restore on all drives' and click Apply - you'll be told that all

existing Restore points will be deleted, so click Yes, at which point the

Restore points will be removed. Now remove the tick and click Apply again to

re-enable it.



You can now test that System Restore is working properly by creating a new

Restore Point and then immediately attempting to restore your computer to

that point in time. Hopefully, now you'll be successful
