I have had a major lifestyle change and I need to "clean" my computer. I don\'t want any remnants of **** on my computer and I am not savvy enough to completely remove all that **** from my acer computer. there are 3 profiles on my computer. one is the one my father set up one is mine and one is a guest account. I want administrative rights on my account. I need to clean the memory of **** from my computer.
However I have documents for school and things that I would like to keep like all of my music. how do I back up these files and "wipe clean" the rest.
I also have no money for downloads or for products.

You are right! the inverter is the likely problem, unfortuneately unless you have another screen there is no reliable way of testing, the inverter puts out at least 1000 volts and don't attempt to check with a meter it will probably get damaged.
Watch the screen at an angle during boot (image content varies) to see if you can detect any changes of a 'ghost' image.If so, then the video section is working OK but then the backlight has been disturbed and disabled.You may have bumped a connector that connects the main board to the display section. If you cannot find anything suspicious with the connectors, either the backlight itself or the inverter board has failed; I checked but could not determine if the screen has LED backlighting so it will be a fluorescent and inverter combination.The high voltage inverter is often on a separate, very narrow board since these are mostly out-sourced from another company; TDK is a major player in the manufacture of these inverters and they are generally available and can be found on eBay.
A slow Dell Mini computer can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated
hardware, overload start up programs, corrupt registry issues, too many
junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system
resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you
should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to
do the job manually, try the Dell speed up solution available here:
The fault is a back light problem, it could be the power connection to the inverter, because you can see a dim video image.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow myinstructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-
A ghost image can be used on only one computer the same image cannot be replicated on other machines. Create a different image for the other computers and then burn the image file to the DVD drive for future use.
Not sure which software you are using for making the ghost image. Lets say its "Acronis". First, you will need an USB hard disk drive to store the image on. Next, run the boot cd and choose backup. Send it to the hdd. If it was successful, remove / replace your hdd. Run the boot cd again but now choose "Restore". Locate your image and then wait.
Hope this helps you. Norton Ghost is a bit different.
hi, yea you may, but make sure that you have already created a *Ghost* image of your current setup.
All you need is a bootable CD with some utilities which will help you out.
Try "hiren's Magic Disk 9.5" : it is bootable disk with proper menus and lots of utilities to make you king of your system.
This disk is usually used by System professionals (including me) :)
Instructions: 1. Boot your system with this magic disk 2. Goto Clone Disk option (Ghost disk) 3. Choose Best compression version 4. utility will start Symantec Ghost which will ask you for the source partition and destination partition for making images. 5. proceed with proper answers. 6. once the ghost imaging is complete, store this ghost image in your external storage drive 7. again boot your system with this magic disk 8. goto Partition utilties 9. Select Acronis Partition manager 10. You'll love to use this software for hard disk maintanence.
After fdisk and format you need to ensure that operative system is installed into yor hard drive. Using ghost you restore the image disk by booting from ghost image CD if you made a bootable image disk. Ensure Bios is set up to boot from CD. If you used Norton Ghost ensure you captured the image of full bootable original hard disk drive for same computer. If it does not boot after restoring ghosted image, than the image it is probably not complete. If hard disk image is not good, easiest thing to do is using Windows install CD to installl again operative system, then you eventually restore ghost image.
