Not supposed to do another system restore. You are basically re-installing USB devices one by one again so the devices dont have conflict. Be sure to install the driver for the drive first before plugging it in.

Sounds like your dealing with a software issue. Most likely a video driver. if there was a recent time that the machine worked, I'd run a system restore. Then look for what might have been installed that caused this problem so you can stay away from it.

How do I restore my acer aspire 5315 to factory settings without a disk ?


Switch On your PC/ Laptop and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Hello masters of FixYa. Today, I connected an


Not sure why this happened but I suggest you download and run c cleaner, it's safe and effective and assuming that your free space was overwritten with temp files you should be able to get it back.
On the c cleaner interface you will see a tab called 'System Restore' You can use this to clear all but the most recent restore point which should help free up space also.
I hope this helps.
Here's a link to a download page for ccleaner...... http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner

After my computer is on for a few hours, it shut down completely. Started once daily, today it has shut completely down twice. What could that meant?


That sounds like a virus. I would start by trying to do a system restore to a time when it didn't happen.

start-run, the type in 'msconfig' and click 'launch system restore' (I'm assuming you're using xp, should work with vista)

External Hard drive doesn't want to work


have you tried a system restore incase some system files have become corrupted other the past couple of weeks.

If not try it first, Click on Start>all programs>accessories>system Tools>system restore and restore your system to a date and time when you know that your drive was being read with no problems. Once you choose the date and time, the computer will restore and reboot. The restore program will then reopen to tell you if the restore was succesful or not.

Once the screen has been displayed click okay and then plug your hard drive back in.

Hopefully this will help if not let me know by posting a comment.
