The CPU holds no information. Reformatting your hard drive is what i think you are asking how to do. You will need a copy of windows... be it XP Vista or Windows 7. Put the disk in, restart your computer and it should say Press any key to boot to CD... press a key and follow the on screen instructions.

MY ACER DESKTOP ALWAYS RESTARTING


Hi Joey
Can say much because you haven't included enough details; however,first things first, check your power supply. The UPS sometimes causes this kind of problem. A simple diagnosis would be to connect the CPU and monitor directly to the mains supply - make sure you use a surge protected power board for a brief check.
If your CPU boots normal, you need to get a new UPS.

Changing acer t690 processor


Yes, you can change the CPU, but your Motherboard will only support certain processors, Take a look at this Acer Support, you will see the compatible CPU's: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT690/AspireT690sp2.shtml Remember : Your machine's component work with one another, within parameters, one component,CPU, will not give you the improvement you might think. CPU, Memory, Graphics Card, Etc.,Upgrades, require more Power/Watts, therefore a new PSU. Which create more heat, new fan. One relies on the other. Do your research, their's a lot more to it than replacing one component. Do a comparison, what will all the components cost, to a new System? The prices for new Good Systems , are low due to slow sales of Desktops/Laptops.

I want a dual core processor upgrade


You listed this under PC Laptop? It's a Desktop? Have you ever done a CPU upgrade? You are limited to what will work with your machine, Mobo and other components. Your Mobo is, of course, AMD compatible, so if you read the specs: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireX1200/AspireX1200sp2.shtml The AMD Athlon X2 dual-core is best option. Memory is a easy option to increase speed a bit. Remember, with a 32bit OS the most memory it can use is 3.80 GB's More or Less. With a 64bit OS use more. I have done many CPU upgrades, you may not get the Speed/ processing increase you expect. After all, the components work in conjunction with one another. Do your research on Socket type, Pins, Power requirments, etc., etc.Check, Verify, then re-Check and re-Verify.

I've got Aspire 6930 and the hdu's partitions have been erased. I got the factory recovery cd's. What do I need to do to restore the factory partitions?


How was the partitions erased? Did somebody reformat the whole hard drive itself or just a partition. If the hard drive was reformatted then there's no way you can recover the factory partitions. Normally ther will be a hidden partition in the hard drive in case you want to use the recovery cds that came with it. And thru this, it will restore the factory settings on your computer on the state where you first got it. There is another option you can recover deleted partitions in case when the hd was reformatted like the stellar software, etc. but you have to buy it.

There are many resources online when doing a google search. I've found one here:

The whole process isn't too painful, but just remember that once this is done everything will be erased. Plan and make your backup carefully. Good luck!

Please remember to give me the appropriate thumbs up rating. Thanks!

LCD monitor signs "no signal" on eMachines t3418


E-machines had had a long history of bad power supplies. I've seen many of these machines go bad and when they do they take out the video chip (Nvidea) with it, usually shutting down the whole machine. I've never seen one operable. You might be able to insert a video card.

How do i reformat amd semphron?


Sempron is the AMDprocessor targeted to the entry-level market and can be found in two platform versions: socket 462 (a.k.a. socket A), the same motherboard type used by Duron and Athlon XP, and socket 754, the same motherboard type used by some Athlon 64 processors.
If you are talking about reformatting the hard drive an a machine with this processor, make sure you have to original  install disk including the windows disk or the reinstall disk for that name brand computer. Igf you have everythingh you may go to the HD prompt,usually "C" and click on formatt.  DO not do this unless you have al the software you need as it wil clean the whole hard drive. After reformatting reinstall everything. The Sempron CPU will not be harmed.

Cant get acers signalup after a reformat to work now, i have extensa 4420 with vista and service pack 1


As far as I know, reformatting will erase a hard drive. Vista would not let you do this when it is running. So were you trying to reinstall Vista when this happened? Microsoft only wants you to install your Vista disc one time on one computer. So that may relate to the problems you are having. I would contact: Microsoft Corp. c/o Bill Gates, Redmond WA.
