Acer Aspire 5920 - Acer Arcade Deluxe Problem


I am not able to boot using vista since I accidently pressed the arcade button when my laptop was switched off. It started with installing something which I okayed and since then it has never booted up in vista ever again.

    Thanks. More information about the problem: it is booting into safe mode.

  • fireman-134 Jan 21, 2009

    I can't get mine to show the windows after the startup after using F7. I hit windows vista at The boot manager but still a blank screen.

    I am sorry. when it goes into safe mode the first thing it starts is startup repair. it ends up with the following error details:

    The only recovery tools I got are the command prompt/startup repair/memory diagnostic tool/system restore/ PC restore sthg.

    The problem is I never backed up my system or created a system restore point. I did install many windows update since the day I had bought the laptop and that should have created a restore point automatically. But it is unable to detect such points now. the last known good configuration also doesn't work at all.

Start up stuck on Acer Arcade Deluxe screen

if you can boot into safe mode by pressing f8 at startup, check the startup folder for acer arcade and remove it if present.From your start button go to (start-programs-startup).

another option is to check the run key in the registry: one caveat though - please don't mess with things in the registry you don't understand. Deleting or changing unknown registry keys can result in a non-booting pc.

please stick strictly to my instructions and you will be fine. We're going to look and see if windows is calling the acer arcade to run at boot time:

click your start button and type 'regedit' (no quotes in the start search field. A window titled 'registry editor' will appear. Now, to expand a field in the registry, we left-click on the triangle on the left side of the field.

so, click the triangle beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
go down to 'software' and click the triangle beside it. go down to Microsoft and click the triangle, go to windows and click the triangle, go to current version and click the triangle, go to run and click on the run folder, not the triangle beside it.

Now look in the list of items in the run folder. these are all items that run when your pc boots. If you see an item with 'acer arcade' or just 'arcade' in the name, then delete it. DO NOT DELETE ANY OTHER REGISTRY KEYS....PLEASE!
if you found acer arcade and removed it then reboot and all should be better. if not, boot to safe mode again, click start button and type in 'msconfig' - no quotes. go to the startup tab, and again only uncheck anything with acer arcade in the name.

Hope this helps!!
