How can I wipe out my hard drive on my Acer Extensa 5620z. It has a malware virus..


Place your Windows System disk in the DVD drive and when the menu appears select "replace system" and let it format the drive.
You could of course install an antivirus anti malware programme and attempt to recover your disk.
Follow these links:

The Microsoft one is free.

Acer extensa will not boot to windows


What is happening when you press the power Button? Do you see any ligths, Any HDD moves? IF DOES.

TURN OFF by pressing and holding your finger on power button.
wait 60 sec. turn on and repeatedly press several times at F8 button.
If page opens on black and white, Use SAFE MODE.
wait til all line down. Then you will see windows opening in safe mode.
WHat ever you install last, remove, scan your computer for virus,spyware. when its finished, check your computer if need defragmentation. by Accessories>System Tools> Defragment.
If message comes such as windows will do this at schedule time or so.
Just turn off your computer using shotdown option (NOT BROWN BUTTON ON START) go to next arrow.
then turn on again see if windows comes back.
Goodluck

Install xp on acer extensa 4220 hard disk not detected


Acer Extensa supports two model of HDD installation 1) AHCI and 2) SATA.

Windows Vista get installs on both but for Windows XP you need to Enable SATA option.

For that go into Bios, Change option of Hard Disk from AHCI to SATA. After that you can install both XP as well as Vista.

Try it, and mail me update: ansari.yasser@gmail.com
