My original problem of black screen turned out not to be memory sticks, but was motherboard-have new m/board-reading instructions to install-it says I need op cd to install-my acer aspire m5641 desktop...


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. The answer to your questions is YES. You need an Operating System CD to and install it on your system. However, if you have the same make and model of the motherboard that has been replaced you dont need to have the Operating System CD. just connect the memory, PSU, Processor, and other components and it will run fine.

If the motherboard make and model is different then you need to have a copy of the Operating System you can check Acer if they can provide it to you or purchase one with Microsoft

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Im having problem with my Acer PC aspire M1641. it always hang out or stop. i dont know why. pls help me with this problem. my work is very affected. ty


Well at 1st look it looks like you have a problem with your antivirus and spyware programs. 1. Install RevoUninstaller and uninstall all unneeded applications: http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html 2. Install a decent Anti virus, here is one free and good enough: http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download 3. Then instal and scan your computer for mallware: http://www.malwarebytes.org/
If all of this doesn't help you, you must reinstall your OS.
Best regards

I have a trogen virus and no money can I fix it for free?


You can use free antivirus like Avira, Avg or Avast, they are as effective as full version antivirus if updated regularly and registered successfully.

You can download::
1. Avast Free

2. Avg Free

4. Avira Free


Don't install two antivirus at a time, if you are installing one of them or if there's any antivirus program installed on your computer, please uninstall and install the new one, otherwise you may have another problem with your problem.

First install Avast and run a full system scan, then check the scanned result, if you are sure that those trojans or virus etc..etc.. are removed, you are done, no need to uninstall and reinstall the other, or if you still doubt, you can try with the other two after the first one is uninstalled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have bought mcafee cd from the store and after i restarted the computer my computer freezes at the windows xp screen. how do i fix this?


Hi
I know this may sound childish but the answer right now is to remove Mcafee. Do this by going into SAFE mode. Press F8 while the computer is rebooting. Once at the SAFE menu select SAFE mode with networking. Once into SAFE mode goto START, Control Panel, Programs and Features. From there uninstall Mcafee. I had you go to the network mode because now you will need to download the Mcafee uninstall tool. This will remove the remaining pieces of Mcafee. Once all this is done go to normal mode and please check to make sure you don't have any other anti virus programs installed - these will definitely mess with Mcafee. If there are no other anti virus programs installed I have to assume it was a virus or malware that interfered with your Mcafee install. Unless you have them already I would suggest you download and then run these programs AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and SUPERANTISPYWARE.exe. You can download these from www.download.com. Once these are completed, we know your system is clean, now run the Mcafee install and everything should work fine. Good luck

WinXP service pack 2 (&3) messing up graphic card for Acer Aspire


Reinstall XP, fully update it, download the installers for the latest drivers from  
http://support.acer.com/us/en/drivers_download.aspx
 uninstall the ones you have, reboot and install the new ones. The absolute next thing you must do is to install the antivirus. 
When all that is done configure your pc starting with the display.

Hi I have a Acer Aspire One ZG5. My Son, said his friend used a program called Killdisk and wiped all my partitions away. How can I get my Acer back up and working? Kind Regards Julie


try formatting your computer use a windows os but make sure it is bootable for example windows vista bootable cd. after that try installing the motherboard installer for you to use the full benefit of your computer then try installing an antivirus for security purposes then try making a password for your computer so your son cannot use the computer without your concern. so it wont happen again. hope i helped message me again for any concerns ok

I dont understand how to download programs onto my acer aspire netbook


Programs can be installed from cd's or downloaded from the internet. You may first want to know what kind of program you need. It may already be installed in your computer.

Acer aspire 5315 s l o w start up


Back up all you files and data. Do a fresh install of your operating system. Only install the programs you use regularly and make sure you set them up not to run at start up, except for antivirus or firewall software. Each program you install that starts on startup adds to your overall bootup time. Follow the instructions to the letter and your ACER will boot faster than when new.

Hope you find this useful,

I downloaded antivirus 2008 and since then my pc screen closses down to my desk top with the words THREAD CREATION ERROR,i then have to restart aol which works slower,i want clear ANTIVIRUS 2008 from my...


Hi
Antivirus 2008 is an adware program - a form of virus. You should be able to get rid of it using a good antispyware program or something like norton antivirus. If you do not have a program installed I suggest you try using spyware doctor:
http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/download/

That will help remove antivirus 2008. I also suggest you install an antivirus program if you do not already have one. I good free option is AVG antivirus:
http://free.avg.com/

Together these programs should help solve your problem and prevent further virus infection.

Hope this helps, good luck!
