Are you using vista? If so beware MS updates. Also keep a close eye on the temp. of your laptop. That model Acer aspire 5520, is known to have an overheating problem and /or cold solder joints on the motherboard under cpu block and the video chip. I can't say if you do or don't have a virus, but if when you turn on, and the laptop starts cycling thru on, then off non stop, you will need to research reflowing solder with that model. I have repaired 2 units with that issue.Run malware bytes antimalware, SuperAntiSpyware and Spybot S & D and see what they say.
Find a USB memory-stick, and find a computer with Internet access and an available USB port.
Put the memory-stick into the USB slot.
Browse to ACER's web-site, and select your specific model of the Aspire line, and select Windows XP, and select network-controllers, and download the device-drivers, and copy them onto the memory-stick,.
Walk the memory-stick to your Acer, and install the device-driver.
i have 5520 and it has vista home as well ,i had the same issue ,however once i downloaded the crystal eyam driver from acer then i installed it, if it doesnt turn up on the start menu somewhere,usually labeled crystal eyecam then try searching for it in the search it should be under programs then all you do is click on it ,and it should come up,btw what graphics ard did you install?
can you click "start" usually on the right bottom screen? if you can, then there will be a list of all your programs. at the very bottom there is a search bar. There, type in "system restore." after going though this process, your computer should be normal.
