Acer 230/280 notebook permanently hidden files?

Hi, I'm not a Notebook/Xp wiz, so excuse me if the problem seems trivial or insignificant in any way.. It's frustrating when you know it's meant to work one way and does'nt!

I cant get my windows to stay on the option of "show hidden files" in my view settings in windows. I go into the settings, put the dot in the circle, click apply, and exit but hidden files, which ordinarily in this state show as faded icons are still not there, I go back into the settings and the dot is magically in the "do not show hidden files"!

I have just done a complete format and reinstall of windows XP home edition. It is now the second time I am going to attempt a format and reinstall, i found it was when I installed my drivers from my flash drive that the problem came back into effect, before which (after the format) I could see hidden files. Somewhere between opening and installing from my flash drive the problem came back! Any Idea on this would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,
ok that seems like a strange problem, do you have any kind of antivirus software? that protects the system settings to getting changed?

You can also change the settings in regedit
start->run input "regedit" enter.->
go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
DELETE the value CheckedValue in the right window. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)
Now create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD). Modify the value data to 1 (0x00000001).
This should let you change the "Hidden Files and Folders" option.

get back to me if this doesent work.

Have a new Acer Aspire 5517, when I move the computer more than 7-10' from the router the signal goes from Execellent to poor/lost connection. 5 other computers on this Verizon Fios network run great with...


Take both excuses out of the equation. Buy a wireless N dongle off ebay (you can pick them up dirt cheap).

Router would pick up dongle using it's own software (Acer's excuse) and would not know or care the make of notebook (verizon's excuse)

How can i upgrade my os to windows 7? currently i'm on xp,thanks.


well win 7 is good. But I will counsel u not to remove XP because it's tooooo good & has high compatibility.

However if u really want to remove ur XP (bad idea) , therefore burn ur recovery DVD before proceeding. U will do it by acer recovery prog & follow some setup instructions & burn that DVD. After that backup ur data from my docs etc, then u need an original win7 to format & install it. After that install drivers from acer support website.
However if u r not satisfied wiz ur win7 later 4 some reasons, put ur acer recovery DVD that u created and restore ur netbook to factory defaults.

I need acer aspire 5315 windows xp drivers


It seems that have formatted from Vista to XP since the driver aren't avaible for XP on Acer's website.

So I would recommend you using this tool and see it if detects your drivers and if it does download the drivers with the program:
