Hi, I want to reinstal the system in Acer 5630, there is a button starting all proces when laptop starts.. whihone?


You probably need to go into the system bios at startup and under advanced options you need to set your system boot up devices. You should set the 1st option to the CDrom and the 2nd option to your hard drive. Then when you put a windows or restore system CD in your laptop it will boot up there before going into Windows. This should start the Windows installation process. Be advised to backup any files you want to save before doing this as Windows wants you to format your hard drive at the start of the installation process and will wipe your hard drive clean. Good luck!!

Need to factor reset,|NOT REBOOT, for acer aspire 3630 windows xp


Hi and welcome to Fixya..

Reinstalling Windows XP on an Acer Aspire 3000 is fairly straightforward. You may need to reinstall Windows XP due to hardware failure, a virus infection, major hardware changes or a hard drive upgrade. Whatever the reason, you can do the reinstall yourself at home. The reinstall will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of your hard drive. Be aware that reinstalling Windows XP will format your hard drive, getting rid of all data on, so you'll want to back it all up on a media device.
  • Step 1
Back up all data on your computer before reinstalling.
  • Step 2 Insert the Windows XP disk and restart your computer.
  • Step 3 Press any key when prompted to begin running the disk.
  • Step 4 Press F8 to agree to the terms of service.
  • Step 5 Choose the partition you want to reinstall Windows XP on. This is usually "C:" for most users.
  • Step 6 Choose the type of format. You can choose either "Quick" or "Full" for NTFS systems. A quick format only takes a few minutes less than the full format.
  • Step 7 Wait for the format to complete. The Windows XP installation wizard will begin. You will be asked to choose your time zone, computer name, and to input any network information. Otherwise, the reinstall will run by itself.

    My acer aspire 5600 warned that I am running out of memory. My "D" drive says there is 30g of free space. How do I use it?


    I think the computer actually said you were running low on Virtual Memory ... memory is the physical ram installed in your machine ... virtual memory is an area of hard drive the computer uses to store data when in runs out of "real" memory .....hard drive space is nothing to do with memory.

    Ok, that got that cleared up :-) .... now the quickest way to get over low virtual memory problems is to install more RAM. For XP you should really have a minimum of 512mb .... 1gb is probably optimum. For Vista you should really have a minimum of 2gb.

    So if your laptop has less than 512mb(xp) or 2gb(vista), the first thing to do would be to upgrade the memory.

    Virtual memory problems should only ever crop up when you are running multiple applications .... so just try and keep the amount of programs you have running to a minimum. Instead of just minimizing programs, try to close them down to save memory.
