Re: DVD/Cd Burner won't run programs.
All you need to do is that put the CD in the CD/DVD drive that you have access and not properly closed. For example here is the situation. I put a cd installer with a file named in the cd setup.exe and it is located in drive D: i access the file setup.exe and I run it or install.. then I decided not to install the programs.. what I did is that is did not cancel the installation but rather I immediately open my cd/dvd drive and get the cd..
What are going to happen? the installation is in the process and I did not cancel the installation properly. In the installation logs of the windows it still have to install the programs but it cannot find the file setup.exe that is located in the Drive D:.
Try to put a cd in your cd/dvd drive with file named setupexe on the cd.. that will solve your problems. TY

Make sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements. These are on the cover of the Windows 7 box. If your computer meets the requirements, then back up all of your data. Make sure you have the original disks for any programs you may want to re-install. Make sure you are connected to the internet. (You can still install without being conected to the internet, you just won't be able to get the updates while installing.) Now, go ahead and put the cd in the cd rom drive and the installation should start on its own. If it does not, then click on your start button, click on my computer, open the installation disc on your drive and double-click on the setup.exe program. On the Install Windows screen click on install now. If you are running XP select Custom and if you are running Vista select upgrade so that you won't have to restore your data or re-install your programs. It's a pretty straight forward process. The main problems arise from the meeting the minimul system requirements. good luck!
The CD Burner drive is compatible with your Windows XP the software version is where the problem is. You need to get an updated version of the burner program, something like Nero burning ROM or Roxie EZ CD creator.
I work at a computer repair shop, and we use norton ghost all the time. Its very easy to use and I would definatly reccommend it. As for a backup CD, you would need an external cd or dvd burner which costs between $50-100. Another solution is to complety wipe your hard drive and install windows fresh. This would remove all the factory installed programs as well as all your data so back it up! I hope this helped you.
No matter what you do, you need to partiton and format the drive and install an OS, be it with the Acer recovery disks or with an original XP install disk. You will need to boot from your CD drive to install the OS, if your drive is not bootable you will need to boot from a floppy and load drivers for the CD drive. For information on how to get these boot floppies check out this Microsoft link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994
You need to have a windows vista dvd or a recovery/restore cd from Acer. CD-less installation will only work if your computer has a restore image which should be installed in the factory. I dont think acer dekstops have that though.
Just call Acer and ask for a vista dvd or see if you know someone who owns a computer which came with the same version of vista and borrow their dvd.
if you have windows 98 boot disk put that in, the firt thing you do is to go to f-disk and change the partions in it, then format c: drive. take out disk in A drive put in New windows XP CD and restart. the disk will run and install itself. and thats it. right now your partions are set to read only windows 95, 98, there are 2 options to choose from I belive the one you need is 32.
