Question about Acer Computers & Internet
SOURCE: very slow computer
I think the person who told you to press F2 or F12 did this to get you into your bios so you could change the boot order. While windows is running, put your recovery cd in the cdrom & just restart the pc. As your Pc begains to startup press the F8 key every two seconds. This will bring up what in known as the boot menu. You can choose which device you want to boot from, for this situitation pick the cdrom & the cd will begin to run your recovery program. There are other ways of getting your system to run like a new install. One is run a program that will clean your entire drive. Like this program & it's free.
After a good cleaning run windows Defrag. By doing this you will not loose any of your personal data or current updateds.
And there you go!

sounds like you'll need to reinstall the operating system, from the recovery cd...or use F8 for safe mode, and see if it's a virus issue

Smart is a BIOS based harddrive testing utility, it is warning you that the harddrive is about to fail.
You should back up all your personal files as soon as possible and buy a new harddrive.

This will be one of two things, 1- a driver glitch, you will need to uninstall the drivers for the cd/dvd drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. This will fix it if it's a driver problem. You can also try any updated driver utilities, or patches for the drive from Acer's support site. 2- the cd/dvd drive has failed and needs replaced. These are basically plug and play devices, they either work or they don't, so a majority of the time when the machine stops recognizing the drive, it's because the drive has malfunctioned. Unfortunately, these drives are considered sealed units and replacement parts aren't available.
