Hi, if i understand your PC is running slow and craching. ok there could be coursed by a few things but lets do the most probable ones first.

1 - RAM, if you go to the start menu and right click "my computer" in XP or "computer" in vista then properties under memory there will be somethink that says ****GB of Ram ( * being numbers). if you r running vista this should be 2GB or 1GB min. if XP 1GB will run well. if your RAM is not this high then you have to upgrade it. if you still have your manual some times they have the spesifecations at the back and you can find out the max RAM your PC will take and what type it will take. if you dont have the manual you can find this information out by just typing into google eg "dell 2400 spesifications or RAM, etc". when you know what RAM you need then just us google to find the cheapes place to buy. again your manual should tell you how to put it if not you should be able to find it on google.

2 - removing any unwanted software from your PC does speed it up, you can also try defraging your PC - right click C drive properties defrag is under one of the tabs.

3 - Spyware some times spyware can slow your PC down make sure you have an up to date spyware scanner and run a scan.

good luck

I need to factory restore

Not enough information to answer. Need manufacturer and specific model number before we can help.

Generally, though, laptops come with one of three ways to restore.

1. The manufacturer supplies a restore disk. This can be a self-booting image of the original load, or it can be an OS disk and an accompanying drivers disk that needs to be installed to restore the unit.

2. The manufacturer provides an application on the drive that the user is supposed to use at the time of purchase to create a set of recovery disks. This application is usually a 1-time-only thing and you cannot make multiple recovery sets with the app, but you can burn copies of the disk(s) you make.

3. The manufacturer places a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive that allows the user to restore the original factory image. There is usually a hotkey combination written into the BIOS that will divert the boot to the recovery sector when pressed at bootup.

Some manufacturers offer both options 2 and 3. But if you got a set of recovery disks at time of purchase, chances are there is no recovery partition on the drive. Recovery partitions are nice and convenient until the problem is the hard drive itself.

If you can provide a specific model number, we may be able to better determine which type of recovery option(s) are available for you PC.

I was restoring from the Acer recovery disk that I created when my process crashed before it completed. Now it won't boot up at all...HELP!

Your best bet is to reinstall the operating system. I couldn't count the number of times that the Recovery Discs created by users fail, it's very common. The only recovery that works a high percentage of the time is when the manufacturer puts a recovery partition on your hard drive.

You can try your Recovery Disc again, but if it produces the same results, just reinstall your operating system fresh. It shouldn't matter because either way you will lose your data.

Trying to play a DVD and the computer says I dont have a DVD decoder. computer crashed a few months ago and that must have not got reloaded.

A DVD decoder is (usually) a separate program.

You can either reinstall it - it may be available on your restore disk or on the manufacturer's website - or, if that is not an option, you can try to restore the computer to an earlier date - on prior to the crash.

I recently crashed my computer and re-programmed it. the speakers have no sound. control panel will not let me access my speakers.


Without knowing the make of the machine it will be hard to give specific steps. But, if you have a set of restore CD's you should be able to try reloading the sound drivers from that CD or the manufacturer CD if you have upgraded the card.

You can open the device manager by going to Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the device Manager you should see something that says unknown device with a yellow ! beside it. You can insert the restore cd or the manufacturer cd and click reinstall driver and when asked for the file... point it toward the cd drive and that should help.

*** Make sure that if you use the restore cd that you remove it from the cd before restarting the machine***

Borrow discs from someone else or contact the maufacturer.Some systems have a computer restore built in.You can try continuously hitting the "F11" key when you first turn it on to see if it has the restore partition.
