Problems turning on Acer Aspire 5720 with Windows Vista

Hello,
I've bought my computer in July this year and it never gave me any trouble until now. I was working and it turned off all of a sudden. I tried starting it, but it kept turning off after the introductory message, before going to windows. I think that also, only the battery led was lit on during this time. I also had a feeling it was stopping while trying to boot from the cd-rom, and each time (about three), I kept trying to get the cd out. Eventually it started after I managed to take out the cd. The computer is clean, no viruses detected.
I don't know if it's time to worry about buying a new PC, I have a feeling I'm not too lucky with that. Could you please tell me what you think the problem was? Thanks so much for your help.

Motherboard problems. It's an Acer and they're notorious for having these exact issues about one year to two years after being bought.

I bought Acer aspire 5738 recently i want to know wheather it will accept XP OS?please give me the clarification


yes it definitly will since you recently bought it,all operating systems will be supported by your laptop that were launched after 1998,so if you just bought a computer it definitly will have windows vista,if it has windows vista it will support windows xp,cauz vista is just a higher user interface than xp,in laymans terms it just needs a higher amount of ram and a higher processor,any old p3 or higher can run xp

Downgrading from Vista Basic to XP


Hi

Have you tried the "compatability" mode built into Vista. Also go to Microsfts site and search for answers as they now have better number of "fixes" to issues similar to yours.

Hi i have an acer aspire 5720 but the login screen won't come on


Hi.
The Acer Aspire 7520 is a very poorly desiged laptop i also have one which is broken atm.

The best thing you could do is to Refomat and install a fresh copy of windows

You shoud have two recovery disk that you should have burned as soon as you got the laptop.

Put Disk 1/2 into the drive.
Boot up your computer and press ATL+F10 atleast three times.
-Follow the on-scree
n instructions and soon you will be asked to put in the disk 2/2.

At the final phase you will be asked to put in disk 1/2 again...Wait awhile untill everything is install and finished loading and your computer will restart with Facory Defualt Settings.

Please Rate. Thanks

ACER Aspire 5720


Hi All,

We are a workshop in Spain & I have had several problems with "Down grading" to XP. There is essentially one problem which causes an issue with the XP installation & that is if the the BIOS has a "Fixed" sata configuration. By that I mean you cannot change it to some sort of IDE or P-ATA (Symantics). Our current problems are with an Acer 5720 & an HP Pavilion DV9700. The Acer solution is exactly as "kraken3000" had mentioned before:
1. On POST (Powerup). enter BIOS by pressing F2
2. Tab along to the second option "Main"
3. Goto last option "SATA mode" & press enter.
4. From the small selection display select "IDE mode"
5. Save & exit the BIOS. This will then set the SATA mode for XP to be recognise.

DONOT set this back to SATA Mode after you install the XP as it will NOT boot. This setting must be kept untill you "Upgrade" (If ever) to Vista. The HP is another story...

Visit the Acer Panam site & download & install the XP drivers & your good to go...

I hope that this was of help...& good luck folks
