Should i use my new acer 5760 on mains power when possible


It depends upon how much time you run your laptop on battery power, you can keep an eye on the battery charge level when you connect it to mains power. You do not need to keep it on mains power all the time, only when the battery level drops to a low level and needs charging.
The laptop will warn you when it is low on battery power.

Check the voltage at the pins of the adapter. If present accordingg to the specifications then connect to the laptop and remove the battery from behind. Now check the voltage at the battery terminal of the laptop. if there is low or no voltage to the desired level then there are problems within the main board as this insufficient voltage will not charge the battery makeing it go down below level.

My netbook boots only to the word window


Sounds like the HDD is corrupted what you need to do is goto the drives manufactures website and download their hard drives utilities software,

follow the instructions on how to make a bootable disk then shut down the computer reboot and run the utilities software, if you have nothing you need to save off the drive, Then do a low level format this can take upto an hour or more depending on how big the drive is

once you have done the low level format (this wipes everything off the drive) then reboot the system and format the drive in windows this will rewrite the master boot record in windows format

some manufactures don't have a format utility because there are so many differentsystem file formats.

Downloaded The Recovery CD's Went To Boot Up Laptop, Realtek Fast Ethernet Network Atdapter come's Up, Then Media Test Failure,Check Cable. Keep's Repeating, Even When I Shut It Down & Reboot It.


Hello sir, hi, this error could be several, so check this one by one:
  1. make sure your pc boots on the hard drive, not floppy, or other boot devices.
  2. If you are setting up windows boot from the CD drive.
  3. check your HARD DRIVE, this may be due to failure, format it using a low level format utility like disk manager.
  4. re-seat Hard Drive cables. use another cable if necessary.

Try a Low level format. click the link below for a software to assist you:

You may also try formating the drive from a floppy disk, if needed. But that may require a little experience of DOS.

The formating done at the time of installation is a High level format, which may not be effective in all cases.

Replacing VISTA with XP Pro on Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV 413


Skokerdog51:
It came with the SATA drive, Go into BIOS settings, hard drive settings from whatever existing (I am slipping the exact name from my mind now). Make sure you save the settings, go into Bootable options and make sure your cd rom is the first to boot, put the cd in, restart your machine and thats it............make a clean install of xp. By the way I am also not a big fan of vista.
Enjoy!
