    When your computer is at it's first boot screen, normally the video card manufacture and model is displayed.

    You can probably find a Windows 98 driver from the video card manufacture sight that will work for you.

    Also, try setting the video card adapter to SuperVGA or some other Generic mode.

    On that model Acer only supports Windows XP.

    Why are you installing Windows 98SE?

    Most likely several device drivers need to be installed.

    What is the model of you Acer? I will try to direct you to the needed files.

When your system starts up, can't you press F2 or F12 and start a Recovery Installation?

Restore travelmate to factory default settings


Unfortunately for Toshiba you will need the restore disks from Toshiba. You can go online and purchase the Disks.
Option 2
1 - Use your old computer to download software so you can retrieve your Windows KEY, unless there is a sticker on your computer that has it printed.
2 - Download a correponding version of windows on the internet and use your key.
3 - After install, you may have to go to toshiba website and download needed drivers.

This should work just fine.

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    I have got a acer travelmate 230 and it has just has windows xp instaled, but there is no sound on it, it states no sound device??


    you need to go to acer website and download the drivers for your notebook... or try going to control panel and add hardware. list of hardwares will come up... all the hardwares that has a question mark beside it needs the driver to be installed. right click that device and click install option, it will look for necessary driver on your system and if it says it didn't find anything. your last resort is go to the website under technical support and downloads.

    goodluck!

    Make recovery discs for travelmate 5520


    Hi,

    There are two (2) versions of the Acer TravelMate 5520; TM5520-5313 (LX.TKU0Z.001) & TM5520-5678 (LX.TKU0Z.003).

    There are two (2) possible ways you can get Recovery CDs:
    1. Purchase from Acer here. You would need your 22 character Serial Number or the SNID which is 11 chars.;
    2. Borrow from a friend with identical model, copy and burn to CD(s).

    Alternately, you can install Windows Vista using an OEM CD (which again can be borrowed). You need to use the Windows key normally found in a sticker underneath the laptop. Thereafter, you need to download from the Acer website the appropriate drivers and install. You would need to select your Product Line, the Product itself and eventually the driver(s) that you need.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FixYa.
