Doe's the acer aspire 7315 have a built in mic


Once the power button is pressed to turn On, keep tapping the F8 button on the keyboard until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" with the lists of options including "Safe Mode", "Safe Mode with Networking" etc...etc... Verify which option is selected by default, move the up-down arrow keys on the keyboard to navigate through the options and press enter to proceed with the selected options, i.e. Safe Mode (in your case), once the enter is hit, you'll see black screen with white texts, wait for several seconds/ or a few minute and proceed, you'll also see a warning pop up message, if so click "yes", there you are in the safe mode.

If you need further help, let me know

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to make windows installer work in safe mode


Windows Installer will not work under Safe Mode, this means that programs cannot be installed or uninstalled in safe mode without giving a specific command using msiexec in command prompt.

To make Windows Installer work under safe mode, you need to create a registry entry for every type of safe mode you are logged in to.

1.Safe Mode.

Type this in a command prompt:

REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"
and then
net start msiserver
This will start the Windows Installer Service.

2.Safe Mode with Network
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Network\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"
and followed by
net start msiserver
This will start the Windows Installer Service.

Windows recovery disk with safe mode


Try this. While you are in Windows click on Start>programs>accessories>system tools then click on system restore. You will be asked to choose a date, choose a date before this started happening it should reset your computer to that date. In the meantime, yes, you need to get a copy of your operating system from www.microsoft.com so you can fix problems in the future.

Safe mode with networking


Re-install windows.
Being a new computer it should have come with recovery discs.
Put it in and restart the computer and follow the prompts.

Automatically stops and starts


This is usually because of a bad driver. Boot the computer and press F8 every half second until you see a black&White text menu - then choose safe mode boot

If it does boot then try System Restore back to earlier point in time.

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.

Acer 5610z will not start


I had the same problem with my neices Acer 5100...Went into safe mode, it loaded the drivers and sat that for what seemed forever...almost like it was hung up....I had a few things to do...and a couple hours later, it finally booted into safe mode.

I was able to save her files, but ultimatly ended up wiping everything out because of the corrupt files.

On another Acer, the same hang up "unable to boot into safe mode" even after a long period of time, and that Acer was a total loss..had to format...

I presume nothing was saved to a CD? i.e. her gsce files?

Doing a factory restore/reset will loose everything.

Try to boot into safe mode and allow it to boot up...see if it eventually comes up...I will keep reading for a solution other than the two here...and will post as soon as I find one...
Unfortunately, Acer do not have a good fix for most of their computer problems....
