Acer aspire L320 how do I uninstal and reinstal from back up disc


If you have the restore disk from the Acer Factory it is a fairly simple process. Insert the disk into the CD Tray. Restart the Computer. While is restarting continue to push F12 until you get a Boot Menu. Using the Arrow Keys, navigate to CD/DVD Drive. Hit Enter. It will continue to Load. A Screen will show that says push any key to boot from CD. Hit any key on the keyboard at this prompt. It will load and then you can begin the Re installation tasks.

Keys on my laptop is not working .. ( From Alphabets A to ENTER).... Rest of keys working good.. After Replacement of new keyboard issuse is still persisting.. Please help me out. Gateway Laptop M-6834...


Sounds like a problem with the software in windows. Try finding the cd that came with your keyboard and install it. If it didnt come with a cd then that means windows automatically detects it by itself.

If thats the case then go ahead and do a system restore on the system back to the last date when the keyboard was working properly. Keyboad should work at that point.

If not, try the keyboard on another computer, if it works on another computer then that means windows is corrupted on your computer and you'll need to wipe out the drive and start with a fresh windows install. Also make sure windows is synching with your receiver.

INstall the hard drive, if the hard drive came with a cd, put the cd in the drive and boot the laptop. When you see it say "boot from cd hit any key" do so and follow the prompts. This software will "initialize" the disc and install for the first time. Once the disc is "officially" installed take the hard drive disc out of the drive and replace it with Operating Disc. Reboot the machine and again look for the "Boot from CD Hit any Key" hit any key and let the system load windows. You only have to hit the key one time when it says "hit any key" even if during the windows install, the system may reboot but it still may need the disc in the drive, if you see the heading "boot from cd hit any key" dont hit any key any more....just let windows finish loading. When windows finally reboots, sometimes up to three times, then you can take the disc out of the drive or take it out if the operating system instructs you to. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

I forgot my password for my laptop dell inspiron 1720


Hello,

This works with windows XP or Vista-

Windows Vista Repair through DVD Windows Vista comes with a very handy feature from Windows ME days -- System Restore. Vista's System Restore is far more sophisticated than its previous iterations and can be of a real help here. 1. Just pop in the Vista DVD, make sure your BIOS is able to boot (start) from DVD-ROM first.
2. Press any key to boot from DVD when asked.
3. Set the Language to install, Time and currency format and Keyboard or input method
4. Now click Repair your computer, select the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
5. Click System Restore, and then click Next.
6. Click the restore point that was a day before you changed the password, and then click Next.
Doing this will set your computer back in time to the particular date when it was working fine. Don't worry, you won't lose any data -- only that any settings or programs installed after that date will not be accessible anymore. All you've to is re-install and redo any settings that you did.
7. Confirm the disks that you want to restore, and then click Next.
8. Click Finish, and then click Yes when you are prompted.
9. When the System Restore process is complete, hit Restart computer.
10. You can either remove the Windows DVD or just don't hit any key on the keyboard when it asks again to "Press any key." The computer will start much faster if you remove the Vista DVD.
11. After the computer restarts, click Close to confirm that the System Restore process has finished successfully.
12. After you log on with the old password, change the password for the administrator account if you like.
13. This step is most important -- Remember the password this time.
14. Restart the computer to make sure that your new password works fine.

Computer Key board stopped working


I take it your keyboard was OK until one day it stopped working. Here is what you should try before you mess around with anything else: Do a system restore. You don't say what operating system you have, but you should be able to find it under All Programs>Accessories>system tools>system restore. Restore your computer to an earlier time--like back to when your keyboard was working. Sounds like you installed something that messed your system up!

Notebook problem


obviously a driver error, you may have the drivers on another partition on your hardrive ,in a restore folder maybe, Acer normally have drivers and programme installations somewhere on the hardrive, so you can restore to it's original factory setup. If you do not an option would be to simply go to Acer website and download them. Only other option is to purchase an external USB powered DVD/CD drive if it's not working, although if you haven't got a restore cd it's irrelevant.
