Question about Acer Computers & Internet
In the case of a laptop (notebook), turn the computer upside down, as if you was going to take the main battery out. Near the product key, you should see a large square white sticker with the following
Acer aspire xxxx
model # xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
made in china xx:xx:xx
(x is a bunch of alpha numeric characters).
Your can also find the serial and model number of the machine in two more places.
one is within the system bios/ cmos (get to this by F2 on bootup)
other one is within windows. . . go to start>control panel>system.
If you are feeling technical, then you could always go into a cmd or command.com interface and run systeminfo, that will tell you everything about the computer.
Note: if the serial/ model numbers dont match the sticker, then chances are you have potentially a stolen machine or a pirated/ counterfeit operating system installed.
I hope this is the fixya for you and look forward to hearing how you get on.

Is the error message coming before bios starts to load XP from harddisk, or after?
If it is coming after XP starts then it may be driver issue.
If it is coming before XP, then it may be a question of incorrect bios for the hardware in your laptop.

you should be able to right click on an empty space on your desktop and choose graphics properties and then the output option should be able to be set and the resolution changed if needed, set your tv for AV3 or s video and connect a seperate audio cable as s video is video only

Sometimes a serial number will be imprinted on a receipt, depending on where you bought the computer...or on packaging that you might have saved...
I've seen suggestions that it might be possible to locate it in the cmos/bios setup, but that doesn't seem too likely to me, and if you found one there, it's hard to believe it would be the same as the production ser. #.
You could try sending a support request to Acer, describing your situation... they might have some trick to locate critical info like hitting esc or F2 as it boots, but it may scroll by too quickly to read...
