Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Acer problems For Christmas my mum recieved an acer aspire 5920 notebook. Was working fine until a few days ago, nothing would work. Spoke to a bloke at Acer who told her to press Alt and F10, then it should tell her to wait a moment while the problem was being fixed. She was informed that the error was due to Windows crashing, after waiting nearly 3 hours, she gave up and shut down, we have been trying ourselves to get it going without any joy, please can you help?

The alt f10 key combination they were referring to is a system restore and must be pressed during the boot process.  This will erase the hard drive and install everything as it came from the factory.

    i would advise you to bring it to a tecnician who will be able to reinstall windows cleanly,and he would be able to find out wheather it was a virus or another problem

Capture the message that is displayed on the BSOD. There will be a bunch of numbers that will tell you what is wrong. I would open the side and re-seat the RAM and do a general cleaning of the fans.
Good luck!

Nothing on desktop aspire t180


If it is new and only a few weeks old, take it back to where you purchased it from as if you want the restore cd's from Acer, they will charge you $20 or $40 plus shipping.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

actually, there are clip on lights that are handy for this..like the book reading kind. I know of a few illumated external usb keyboards, but the book lights are a safe bet..bookstores carry them

I purchased an acer aspire 5920 notebook a few months back my wife said that the sound just stopped working a few days ago. I have checked through the control panel device manager and both are functioning...


Can you hear sound through the headphone port? If so then it's possible the speaker wire came loose on the inside. If not, then it's most likely a motherboard problem and you should contact ACER for warranty service.

Acer aspire e500 won't turn on


Check that all the power supply units are switched on( Wall Plug, UPS, CPU), If all is ok and the problem exists, replace the CMOS battery.( if the sys works replace your CMOS Battery, configure the cmos settings also)
