Audio on Acer Travelmate 4200 ''flickers'' (?)

Hi,

Just before I go ballistic on this thing and change the hard drive and/or the RAM card, I just wanted to know if there's another possible way to fix "flickering" on audio playback. It sounds almost as a scratched CD, but faster, and it isn't permanent, but it's THERE. I've already re-installed the OS (Windows XP SP2 - I'm totally anti-Vista), and everything works perfectly, but this.

I'm sorry if my description sounds vague, but:

1.- English is not my first language

2.- I'm TOTALLY computer-illiterate.

I'd really appreciate some help!

Thanx,

Mon.

Firstly locate the audio drivers (in system32 remember where they are ) uninstall the audio software and delete the drivers afterwards, reboot, go into bios settings and disable on-board audio if possible, reboot and re-install audio drivers

How do i get access to the RAM slots on an Acer Travelmate 420???


The memory is located under a small cover plate on the bottom of the unit. Remove the battery, and then take out the two screws of this cover plate, you will find your Ram located under this plate. Here is the user manual for your model notebook:

How do I re-format Acer 4200 TravelMate hard drive?


Windows Reinstallation Disk option:

Insert Windows Reinstallation disk into tray, Boot to CD/DVD-ROM by pressing F12 at initial boot screens, delete existing Windows partition, re-create partition, and then follow steps to reinstall Windows. This will lead you to an option for formatting hard drive. I recommend choosing the full format versus the quick, from this point you can let windows install, or just shut the computer down when the format finishes. You will have to watch the progress, though, if you don't want the install to commence.


Boot disk option:

For XP, 95, 98, or ME, follow the instructions at this MS article page. It will walk you through creating a boot disk that will allow you to format.

You will need a floppy disk or CD

Acer travelmate 4200 SMART hard disk problem


Your file system might get corrupted when you did not shutdown the computer properly. If you really need to close the laptop while doing something, then you might want to adjust power properties, so that the computer do not shutdown when you close.
For your hard drive problem, do the recommended action, by scanning your hard drive for problems. It will fix the problems.

Lines On Monitor of Acer TravelMate 4200


Possibly. You have created a dead pixel area, try massaging the area firmly. Just hard enough for it to change colors, but not so hard that it turns black. Then turn it off and leave it overnight. You may have to do this several times to get it to come back. Depending on the damage, you may have a dark spot in this area, or it may not work at all. This is just about the only thing you can do for this other than screen replacement.

This error is telling you there is nothing for the laptop to boot from.
The PXE meanes the laptop is trying to boot from the network adapter. If there is a hard drive in the laptop, then remove it and reinsert it again.
It could have suffered a catastrophic hard drive failure, or it could be just having an issue.
Also try putting a bootable cd/dvd into the drive and see if it will boot at least from that. If it does and you have access to another PC (you obviously do) and a cd burner, then search the net for "Hirens Boot Disc" download it and burn it.
This is a bootable cd that has a lot of tools for diagnostics of hard drives and a myriad of other things as well.
