Restore back to factory settings

If you don't mind loosing everything on the hard drive, restoring the system is fairly easy.
Locate your disks that came with the computer. In there, you should find a disk either for Vista Home or a restoration disk. Place this in the drive and reboot the computer. You may have to press a key like F8, F10, etc, during the very first startup screen to boot to the disk.

You should be able to follow on screen instructions from there.

My pc keeps either freezing or crashing altogether,this only seems to happen when i am surfing facebook ,or pictures on the web,I can watch youtube,or movies with no crashes at all,I've scanned for viruses...

Im guessing XP and if you have the CD do whats called a repair install. Choose the upgrade option then install it, this will not harm any of your programs at all you will just have to do all the windows updates when its finished. Cheers and please vote

Acer m1640 factory restore

Format the drive, then install an operating system such as xp, or windows 7 .... it should install most of the correct drivers. You may have to go to the manufactures website to find the exact drivers for the video and sound cards., but that should pretty much return it to factory settings. If you are really picky and have the bucks, you can contact ACER for the original disks.

Does anyone have any ideal what video chip set is compatible with the Intel mother board of the GX520 DELL? I have tried the nvidia cards with no luck. The bios is current and set for Auto...but the board...

Hello ssc2657 so you have the tower with 2 PCI slots. And 1 PCI-express x1.
I see the motherboard here:
(let me know if It is not what yours looks like)
you asked "you haven't had this very issue your self?"
Well sort of.... I don't have a Dell PC, I build my own..I have had the odd problem over the 16 years I've been building my own and the family's but I have always found a solution.

Now I would suggest backup anything important in case Windows piles up on you while trying to get the drivers for your video card working. ( with Windows, Dell, Nvidia and Intel drivers not to mention your audio drivers all trying to play nice together anything can happen)
to get ready :
update windows to at least SPK2 ,(SPK3 better yet)
update intel chipset ( so windows can see whats on the motherboard) yours is the "Intel 945 Express" (need more info GM, GMS or PM)
update Intel video driver (to eliminate risk of conflict)
now we are ready

Now I would take these steps :
1) download the newest video card driver for the card you want to install for the proper OS (operating system IMPORTANT)
2) delete all the video card drivers EXCEPT THE INTEL video card driver with the add/remove feature in the control panel.
3) shut down the PC. turn off powerbar or UPS then unplug power cord.
4)Touch the metal parts of the case as much as possible while opening and working in the case if you don't have a antistatic wrist stap.
5)Install video card making sure there is no dust or lint in the PCI slot, and if the card is old and showing oxidization I might clean the contacts on the video card with a white erasure....carefully....very carefully.
6)Assemble the case
7)Connect video cable to video card
8)Plug PC in, turn on power
9) start PC.

If all goes well when windows starts you will get a large popup from windows asking to find a driver for you. CLICK NO AND CANCEL.

10) if you downloaded a new driver, install it now. if you only have the cd that came with the card ( the original driver from when the card was made {which is not as good}) then run it now.
11)reboot when driver is finished

Hope this works if it doesn't please post the model of the video card you are trying to install.

Restore / setup freeze e machine

Hanto is correct in saying "You shouldn't have to give it a name if you don't want to. Windows will self-name the comuter based on a formula that it decides on." but the install should not freeze regardless of which option.
Have a good look at the "data" side of your restore CD, make sure it is spotless with no scratches. If it is damaged see can you "borrow" an OS CD which matches the OS product on the license sticker which you will find stuck to the PC from someone else (idealy an OEM copy). You will be able to load windows using this and entering your "KEY". You may have some driver issues, but if your PC came with a 2nd Driver CD you won't have any problems, otherwise you may have to download them from the PC manufacturers site.

If this solution is of any help please remember to rate it.
