Be sure there are not a lot of programs running in the background. Click on start and then run and then type in "msconfig". Click on the Startup tab and uncheck everything that you do not need running when windows starts. Go into the control panel and select add/remove programs and uninstall everything that you do not need on your computer. Run an adware/spyware scanner and run your anti-virus. Do a defrag on the hard drive.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

How can i install windows xp in acer aspire m5641 can u tell me plz yours best regrds zakir


Hi,
The acer aspire M5641 , usually ships with windows Vista. If you are planning to install windows Xp. You would have to source the windows xp cd. You cannot buy the XP cd from microsoft as windows xp is now and end of life operating system and not sold off the shelf. However if you already have the XP cd with you , you can use the same cd. Note hardware on your acer may not work , because of driver unavailability for XP operating system. However if your system was shipped with , refer to the following video links to guide through the reinstall process

I turn my laptop on and it starts to boot up but thats as far as it gets. Can you help please? its an Acer aspire 5051


I will assume it has xp installed, get hold of a xp cd, XP Home or Xp Pro, which ever is installed on your laptop and perform a repqir install. Boot from cd run through setup but after pressing F8 to accept EULA choose to repair windows and use same directory, most programs will continue to work , any docs and system/user profiles will remain intack.

I have acer aspire laptop computer model 3692WLM1 windows media center edition I wish to purchase a HP DESKJET D4200 series printer will this be compatable for my laptop


Hey doodee,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this model HP printer requires Windows 2000, Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional in order to function. Apart from the obvious cosmetic changes and some extra added functionality, Windows XP Media Center Edition may be treated as basic Windows XP in many instances. As such, this printer should be compatible with your computer. Please keep in mind however, that you may need to perform driver and software updates in order to guarantee functionality.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Slow laptop


I think you are out of luck with this. You can try upgrading the RAM, but I believe you will still be disappointed. Vista requires a huge amount of hardware resources and many drivers are not available yet.

Install Windows XP or try one of the Linux distributions. I prefer Fedora Core myself, but for many, Ubuntu is an excellent choice.
