Laptop screen frozen;arrow wont move;cant type in user name.ACER Aspire


The appeal to any laptop is the ease of portability of the machine, and an Acer laptop is no different. With an integrated mouse pad, these computers can be quite the boon to those looking to have their technology on the go, but a number of issues can afflict Acer laptops, including unresponsive mouse pads. Fortunately, a few clicks of the keyboard and some driver downloads can alleviate most Acer mouse pad problems.

Take a close look at the Acer laptop mouse buttons. Make sure the exterior of the buttons are clean and that there is no grime around the edges and crevasses of the Acer buttons. Dirt on top of the mouse pad can result in slower performance or an unresponsive experience, while grime around the sides of the mouse buttons can cause problems with the pressing and depressing of the mouse. Is there any way your mouse pad has been turned off? Check into this possibility. On an Acer laptop, hitting the "Function" (Fn) key and "F7" on the key board will result in the mouse pad being switched off. Hence, you may have hit this function and your mouse pad may not actually be broken or require any repair. Hitting the "Fn" button and the "F8" key on the Acer keyboard will result in the mouse pad being turned back on again. Click on the "Printers and Other Hardware" option on your PC. This is an alternative method to the above. At this point, examine the menu that comes up and click on the button at the top that reads "Device Settings." You should then see an option to click on your Acer mousepad. Highlight this option and click "OK." Launch your Web browser and go to the official Acer website. http://www.acerpanam.com/ The above steps may not have worked, so downloading new drivers for your mouse may be necessary. Select your country of origin, then click on "Support." You will be asked to click on your country again. After you do so, click on the link that says "Drivers and Downloads" on the left sidebar. Select your product line ("Notebooks") as well as your specific Acer computer model, and then hit "Search." Click on the link that says "Touchpad drivers." Your Acer computer may only require new drivers for your mousepad. Download the .exe file and run it to install the contents to your Acer computer. Restart your Acer computer after fully completing the download and installation process. Once the restart process has completed, the driver installation will be complete and your mouse should work again.

Operating system not found


No, you won't get the OS to automatically install on the new drive. The OS is not stored in the BIOS chip (or a similar permanent location inside the computer). You will need an OS install disc (not an upgrade disc). Windows Vista Home Premium or Basic was the original OS on most of the Acer Aspire 4530 series. Acer appears to have drivers for the system for XP through Windows 7 to get the hardware to work. You will need to have these most of these ready before you install your OS. Put them on a flash drive or optical disc using another computer.

This computer may work with Unix as well. However, driver issues may be a factor. You can try most versions of Unix from a CD (LiveCD) to test it out.

When you get a new hard drive, install it into the laptop. Then put the OS disk in the optical drive bay. Boot to the optical drive. Follow the directions for formatting the hard drive and installing the OS. (Of course you will need a drive that doesn't have a higher capacity than the BIOS supports.) The motherboard needs to recognize the drive.

If you find a member of a Windows User Group, they may have Windows install discs available. The license number on the label of your computer will probably work as your license key. (The key for a computer like this is locked to the CPU and motherboard; unless someone upgraded the OS to Windows 7 or downgraded to XP, this should be the key you need.) Use the information on the label to obtain the correct version of Vista (the Basic install disc may not work for installing Home Premium). You also need to match the 32-bit or 64-bit install disc (and the service pack you need).

I hope this helps.

(An Acer recovery disc wouldn't help you. Most of those are completely locked to the original hardware (including hard drive) and look for the recovery partition that was on that hard drive.)

Got a acer aspire one d255...would like to install a hp mouse wireless...how?


Most are plug & play in this century but older ones may require you to download drivers from HP
Here's HP's site for their drivers: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

Since you do not have a Optical Drive you may have to invest in a basic external version if it came with a cd.
[This will be helpful in the long run if you want to install programs that are only in cd format]

Best bet is to find the drive on the above site.

Since I do not know the specific product name/number for the mouse here are three ways that I am aware of depending on what dongle is being used to connect your mouse to your notebook.

USB - Plug & Play
1) Stick the usb dongle into a usb port.
2) Wait a few minutes for something to pop up in your taskbar icons.
3) Wait for everything to load up and connect.

USB - CD
1) Try Plug & Play directions above first
2) If you have another computer/netbook/notebook look into copying the cd onto a usb jump drive
3) Using the cd converted jumpdrive as if the jumpdrive is the cd.

Bluetooth - No dongle included
1) Get yourself/plug in a bluetooth dongle to be able to use bluetooth
2) Read your manual guide - Look for a pin to type in when connecting the two.

I truly hope this helps! Just give me a shout if you need any further help.

D2d recovery miss, in my hd, what I do?


If the computer you are recoverying the Operasting System on does not have an internal optical drive an external USB optical drive will be required to use the Recovery Media.
  1. If applicable, ensure the external USB optical drive is properly connected to the computer and powered on.
  2. Power on the computer.
  3. Press the F2 key to enter BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the Acer logo is being displayed).
  4. Using the keyboard arrow keys, arrow over to Boot.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. Press the optical drive drive eject button and insert the System CD.
  7. Close the optical drive tray.
  8. Press the F10 key, and then the Enter key to save the changes and restart the computer.
  9. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media they may be purchased at our Acer Recovery Media Order Form.

Drivers for Acer products may be found on the Acer Product Support. Search for the product and download the drivers.
Alternatively, the factory installed drivers and applications can be re-installed by using Acer eRecovery by following these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then All Programs
  2. Click Acer, and then Acer eRecovery Management
  3. You may be prompted to enter or create a password. This password will be required to use eRecovery in the future.
  4. In the next window on the left toolbar, select Restore.
  5. Choose Reinstall Drivers or Applications
  6. Choose Contents
  7. Choose the driver or application you wish to install
  8. On the right, click the Install link and follow the prompts.
  9. The computer may restart when installation is complete. If it does not restart, manually shutdown and restart the computer.
Note: For older Acer products, the Acer eRecovery Management program may not be available.

Is a Logitech mouse compatible with Acer labtop


Should be compatible with any PC, you may need to download the latest Logitech drivers to get the full functionality of the device. Microsoft has basic support built-in for Logitech input devices. If this question is in regards considering buying a new logitech mouse, the software drivers will come with the device.

Acer One 10" XP ... all in French


I'm not a computer expert but the aspire one has a recovery program loaded onto it already. If you click on the start button then move your mouse over to were the programs button if you click on the second program option down (the one underneath the "accessories") then click on that program it should be something called empowering techonology (might look like "autorisation de la technologie" - courtesy of babelfish). When the program opens up (in my aspire one its a blue window) if you click the top option (just scroll your mouse over it) that is "restore system to factory default". I believe you will probably have to do the whole select language etc over again and hopefully fix your laptop. Good luck.

Unable to connect mouse to acer laptop


Before you connect your wireless mouse USB adapter to your laptop you'll need to install the software first, after the software is installed follow the steps to connect the wireless mouse USB adapter, this will keep the instalation wizard from popping up.
