Your startup repair option in Windows Install indicates a hardware conflict. Go to your System Setup in startup mode, by pressing Del, F2 or F10 whichever the hint is on screen during bootup. Once inside system setup, turn off almost everything, disable Speed Stepping in EPower, set monitor off to disable, Standby and Hibernation off as well. Turn off the modem and Network adapter if yo can. Just about everything that affects a device on the laptop. This would also include the Touch Pad if you're using a mouse.

And, in the long run, you may need to do a full Windows Install if the repair option continues to fail. Many of these failures are due to the Virtual Memory file size for Drive C being too low. If you can get into Safe Mode change this setting, right click My Computer, select Properties, go to Advanced, advance and change Virtual Memory on C to a fixed size about 1024Meg for min and max.

Also, should you be low on free space for drive C this could cause the same problem. You would have to choose a Full Install as an Option unfortunately.

In the absence of anything along these lines working, you should be able to choose Restore Acer option (or words to this affect), you would want to tap on F8 while booting, sometimes its F10, but this gives you a 'boot from what source' option, CDROM, Hard Drive or Restore Partition. Choose the Restore Partition and start over from scratch again.

Sorry, but this often happens and you and I have to live with this.

If you need any clarifications on what I've just stated, use the Comment Box Text Entry box below to send me a message. I'll get an email alert and will get back to you as soon as I can.

Got window that said update Adobe. Ran it and


This depends on your operating system. you may need to upgrade to service pack 2 or 3 if you have a microsoft operating system such as windows xp,vista. go to www.microsoft.com and search for service pack 2 or 3. You can download it there. or click on the start in the bottom left corner of the screen, click on control panel then click on security, click on updates and click install updates. Your system could be slightly different from these steps, but should be close enough so you can do this.

Cannot use reader 8.0,cannot remove it or install 9.0


oddly enough, you may find that updating the version 8.0 you have to 8.x will then allow you to remove it (or it will work correctly) can you open the reader manually in the programs list? if so open it, then go to help and check for updates. apply the updates. If they work you should be in good shape.

Can't update Acrobat Reader


Go to the following link and you can find the update versions all the way back to 6.0
http://www.filehippo.com/download_adobe_reader/

However the versions after 7.0 are described in the technical specifications tab for each version as not compatible with all Windows OS versions, only Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/XP64/Vista64.

It seems you may not be able to update, sorry.
