One way to resolve your issue would be to run a complete Restore of the whole system. This should pose little worry to you as your PC is very new, but is only to be used as a last resort as it will TOTALLY WIPE ALL THE USER INFORMATION that you had input yourself and return your new PC to the state it was in when you first opened its lid. The specific step by step instructions or install routine you need can be found within the user manual and any install disk you may need should be supplied in the box it came in. Look in the manual for RESTORE. One last thing when restored add a USER ACCOUNT for you grandson and ensure it is set to be LIMITED not to ADMINISTRATOR and password your own account (as one MUST be set to ADMIN.) so that he will not be able to set up such a problem in the future.

Will an acer 5535 15.6" screen work in an acer 5735


It should do provided they are the same size, and have the same connections on the back, the easiest way is to remove the bezel (screen surround) and look at the connections on the back of the screen, if they look the same there is a good chance it will fit and work

Check the part number on the rear of the screen. If not identical it might not work.

My acer aspire 5535 shows not connected to network, red cross over monitors, i try to connect to a network but nothing just the spinning circle, on screen I have an internet page showing connecting that...


Go into device manager and uninstall your network adapters then restart the laptop. The network adapters will now reinstall themselves with default settings and hopefully now youre connected. Hope this has worked if so please vote

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5535 with password in the bios


Unfortunately, if he put a sysetm BIOS password and doesn't remember it, you need to contact Acer's website.

You can have a electronics technician jumper all electrical current to wipe out the BIOS password, but contact acer first to make sure that there is not another method.

Brand New laptop, won't start


Try taking the battery out before you turn it on. Have seen completely a dead dead battery keeping a laptop from starting up. Does the hard drive activity light flickering? If it is you can try holding down the Function button (FN) and there should be another button to hit to switch between LCD\CRT.
