Acer AL1716 Monitor Troubleshoot

I recently re-installed Windows XP on my system and while re-installing programs and cd drivers I was asked to restart my computer so that the changes would take effect. However after restarting, my monitor loads up normal until it is to display my computer screen and it just says"Auto Config Please Wait" and that was since the night before. What can I do? Please help!

You can try the following: - Early (very) in the boot routine tap either F5 or F8 to access a short startup menu - Choose 'Safe Mode' (this should give you some kind of display) If it does give you a screen; - Click Start - Select Control Panel - Open the System folder - Click on Hardware - Choose Device Manager - Find and open Monitors - Highlight whatever monitor is listed and delete it
With your monitor turned on and connected, reboot your PC.
I can't guarantee it but this may force Windows 'Plug and Play (or Pray)' to look for, find and then finally install some kind of driver (may not look like you want) to get your Desktop visible again.
Then you can adjust settings in the ontrol Panel's Display section.
Your monitor could be causing the problem but it is more likely Windows doing whatever it feels like (or nothing at all) again.

The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I m having pirated windows 7 in system. i want to install windows xp. what should i do?


Use your Windows XP installation CD and the product installation code that is on a label on the bottom of your Acer.
Boot up with this CD click install Windows, then delete the existing Windows partition, create a new partition, then format this partition (do a full format not a quick format) then continue the installation as per the screen instructions.
After installing Windows, install the Acer Aspire device drivers, Activate Windows via the Internet or by phone, install XP SP3 (service pack) and your programs.

You can slipstream the storage controller drivers from the floppy disk image you download from Acer's web site into an ISO image of the Windows XP installation CD using a program like nLite.
You can then burn the slipstream ISO image into a CD & use it to boot & install Windows XP without the need to use the floppy disk.

You can download nLite at the following link:
http://www.nliteos.com/download.html
After downloading the installer, install the program & start using it.

The following link describes how to use nLite to slipstraem the SATA drivers into the Windows XP installation CD:
http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html

I tried this myself, & it worked without problems. I now no longer need to use the floppy drive when installing Windows XP on my system.

How to reformat acer aspire one


Put a Windows XP disk (has to be the full version not an upgrade) into the CD drive and the computer will ask to "press any key to boot from CD". Press a key. Follow the prompts, It is important to delete the partition when asked. Then recreate it. Format the drive with NTFS file system. The setup will go on to reinstall windows automatically.

Now, the only challenge is to reload any software drivers for components Windows does not find automatically. This is a little tricky. Do google search of Acer drivers or go to www.drivers.com.

Also, remember all your software programs need to be re-installed. For example, your Microsoft Office (word, excel, etc). Any games, any virus protection, Quickbooks, etc. The printer software also needs to be re-installed. Hopefully you still have the original disk or if its a Hewlett Packard go to their website.
