How do I reboot a acer desktop PC


What OS are you using? Is the computer responding to the mouse/keyboard?

For Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7, if your mouse is responding, click Start, then click on the drop-down menu (the arrow next to the button) on the bottom of the right-hand column. Choose Restart or Shut Down. If you choose Shut Down, wait a few seconds after the fans turn off before pressing the power button to turn the machine back on. From the keyboard, press the Windows key and then the right arrow, down arrow (until you highlight the button) and then right arrow. Then use the up/down arrow keys to select Restart.

If you have the new Windows 8, you need to launch the Charms menu by hovering the mouse at the top right edge of the screen. (For a Touch pad, swipe in from the right side of the pad.) Alternatively, press the Windows key and C at the same time. Then click Settings in the column on the right. Find the Power icon on the bottom of the list and click on it. Choose Restart.

It is possible to build a shortcut tile for restarting Win8. You need a new shortcut with the command "shutdown.exe -r -t 00" without the quotes. Enter the Desktop (if you aren't in that part of the Win8 experience). Right click on the screen where there are no programs or icons. Choose New Shortcut. Put the above line in the box for the location of the item. Click Next and give the shortcut a name. Click Finish. Right click on the icon that gets installed and choose Properties and then Change Icon (if you want a different icon). Click OK to get a list of possible icons. Click Apply to set the icon picture.

Then Pin the shortcut to the Start Menu with another right click.

I hope this helps.

Amazing shortcuts


Getting used to using your keyboard exclusively and leaving your mouse behind will make you much more efficient at performing any task on any Windows system. I use the following keyboard shortcuts every day:<br /><br />Windows key + R = Run menu<br /><br />This is usually followed by:<br />cmd = Command Prompt<br />iexplore + "web address" = Internet Explorer<br />compmgmt.msc = Computer Management<br />dhcpmgmt.msc = DHCP Management<br />dnsmgmt.msc = DNS Management<br />services.msc = Services<br />eventvwr = Event Viewer<br />dsa.msc = Active Directory Users and Computers<br />dssite.msc = Active Directory Sites and Services<br />Windows key + E = Explorer<br /><br />ALT + Tab = Switch between windows<br /><br />ALT, Space, X = Maximize window<br /><br />CTRL + Shift + Esc = Task Manager<br /><br />Windows key + Break = System properties<br /><br />Windows key + F = Search<br /><br />Windows key + D = Hide/Display all windows<br /><br />CTRL + C = copy<br /><br />CTRL + X = cut<br /><br />CTRL + V = paste<br /><br />Also don't forget about the "Right-click" key next to the right Windows key on your keyboard.

Hi,

From the problem description I understand that the CD/DVD Drive is not visible in the Computer window. Also, I would suggest that check in Device Manager if the CD/DVD Drive shows yellow exclamation mark.

In both the cases, please perform the steps below to delete the upper and lower filter values from the registry: Before performing the below steps, better take backup of the registry if something goes wrong, you can open the Backup file to restore the old registry values:

STEPS TO BACKUP THE REGISTRY
  1. Click the Start button, and then in the Search field, type regedit .
  2. Press the Enter key. NOTE: If prompted for an administrator password or a User Account Control prompt is displayed, type the appropriate password, click Continue or click Yes .
  3. In the Registry Editor window, on the menu bar , click File .
  4. In the File menu, click Export .
  5. In the Export Registry File window, under Export range , click the All radio button.
  6. In the File name box, enter the name for the exported file and then click the Save button.
  7. In the Registry Editor window, click the X button at the upper-right to close the Registry Editor.
STEPS TO DELETE UPPER AND LOWER FILTERS TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE WITH THE OPTICAL DRIVE

  1. Click the Start button, and then click Run .
  2. In the Run window, next to Open: , type: regedit .
  3. Press the Enter key.
  4. In the Registry Editor window, in the left pane , double-click the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder.
  5. In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, double-click the System folder.
  6. In the System folder, double-click the CurrentControlSet folder.
  7. In the CurrentControlSet folder, double-click the Control folder.
  8. In the Control folder, double-click the Class folder.
  9. In the Class folder, click to select the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} folder.
  10. In the right pane , click to select the UpperFilters registry value.
  11. On the menu bar , click Edit .
  12. In the Edit menu, click Delete .
  13. In the Confirm Value Delete dialog box, click the Yes button.
  14. In the right pane , click to select the LowerFilters registry value.
  15. On the menu bar , click Edit .
  16. In the Edit menu, click Delete .
  17. In the Confirm Value Delete dialog box, click the Yes button.
NOTE: Do not delete the UpperFiltersBak orLowerFiltersBak registry values.
  1. Close the Registry Editor window.
  2. Restart the computer.

This will resolve the issue.

Thanks!!!!

I try clicking on the application and it won't respond


Hello,

Start-->All Programs->Your application. If it works, create a new shortcut on desktop. If it does not work, the application has been uninstalled, or it folder has been displaced.

You can use Add/Remove program in control panel to verify if it is still installed.

To create shortcut, point mouse cursor in a free area, Right Click >>New>>Short Cut. Click the submenu. A create shortcut window appears and you use the browse button to travel to the application folder in Programs Files, and select the executable file (has an extension .exe) and click OK.

Hope it helps

There is a utility bar that you can install that lets you change the default application folder:

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility
