If its the video card and the disc is giving you problems then you will probably need to go to their website and download the driver for it. It should be free of charge.

How do I get past the blue screen? Computer has been stuck on this for weeks. It has been rebooted, restarted, unplugged, still doesn't get past blue screen.


First unplug your machine and plug it back in and turn it on while its booting up you should see a message to press the F2 key to enter the BIOS. press that key, you will only have a couple of seconds to press it. Look for an option called First Boot Device, Boot Sequence, or something similar; press the arrow keys on your keyboard to select this field and then press Enter (You may have to select Advanced Options or another submenu to find it.) In the resulting screen, select CDROM/DVD and then press the Esc key until you return to the main BIOS screen. Follow the onscreen instructions to save your new settings and exit BIOS setup. Insert the installation disc (you need an installation disc of the operating system, if you dont have one you can find one on amazon, but if you needed to buy one you should consider upgrading to windows 7(more like vista) or Windows 8 (not really like vista)) once the disc is inserted restart the computer and follow the on-screen instructions

Acer aspire x1200 freezing after factory restore


It appears that well bla bla as you say I agree weird stuff I have the same machine in my den. What I did was load Win 7 into it. It may be worth the investment. Also you may want to do a total hard drive wipe before re-installing original software just because you do a restore does not mean that there may be something left behind that could be affecting your computer. Killdisk is freeware I use this software whenever I wipe any drive. That way I know if there are any errors on the drive or bad sectors or whatever may be hanging it up.
I think most folks will agree with me those that have been around know that Vista is quirky to say the least especially if you do not keep up with the latest updates with this software. I personally have never liked Vista some folks swear by it but to me it was just a BETA format for the Win 7 system testing phase. Many computers I have worked on I convince my clients to use Win 7 Ultimate. If you can get a copy of this that would I believe solve the matter. Also download killdisk save your goodies first and try it from there if you can.
Also, you may have a bad or going bad part in your machine as well. Check the dust and clean if necessary and use some new thermos paste also on top of CPU........This may also help I have to do that at least every 6 months with mine they get hot. Maybe someone else has more options. I would at least consider the move forward from Vista to 7 you have the resources for it. John

S3842 uk FREEZES ON BOOT every time have to switch off. on 3rd or 4th attempt works fine. any new software that requires reboot - it does this without a problem. started 2 months ago with original Vista...


Upgrades are usually troublesome as they leave bits of the old OS in odd places. It is best to do a clean install.
Choose your OS, either Vista or Win7. XP will not work!
Always download the latest drivers for the OS you are using from hp.com or it will keep hanging and be unreliable.
Hope this helps.

New PC not accepting mini DVD-R disc


I've had a look at the Acer Aspire X1200 in a photo and it seems to stand upright with the dvd drive coming out sideways. There is no real groove on the inside of the disc tray to keep the mini DVD-R disc held in place.  There may be a way to remove the stand that holds it upright. Then turn it on the side that you lean it on. That would be the way it would have to sit permenantly by the looks of it. If the stand doesn't come off then I'd suggest just turning it on it's side anyway, not ideal but it will read the disk. I dont think there is anything else you could do to make it read the disc whilst standing up, I'm afraid.

I can't get my system recovery disk to work so i can restore my computer to the orginal format


If your recovery CDs have failed you have some options

1. you can call the company who made your computer about a new set of restore discs

2. you can buy an operating system disc such as XP or vista

XP or Vista , Operating System Installation CD will setup the computer nicely , you may need drivers for certan things but not likely.


Malfunctioning restore CDs really **** me off

I just chunk em and load my XP pro disc

( multi machine volume license required if you wanna put it on multible computers )
( same with vista )

but in some cases you may find that XP pro will install on many machines just fine.


Thank you for using FixYa!
