    I recieve a Kernal error just after my screen freezes. For no apparent reason my computer will stop working. I changed the ram and motherboard but still problematic. Now it will not boot up sometimes. Often, it will just cease working and shut down.

Yes very possible. More likely is the the BIOS chip is bad. I have seen sites to purchase new BIOS chips on the intenet or contact ACER to if it is cost worthy BIOS chips clip out of the motherboard as a separate item.   Recovery CDs are available from ACER.

My acer laptop will not boot


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

I have an acer aspire 5742 laptop how do i turn my webcam on


Hi, Webcams are a great way to communicate with friends and family in other places, while still feeling like they're in the room with you. There are many different types of webcams and many different computers to go with them. So, if you happen to be a new Acer Aspire 1 owner, then follow this simple guide, and you'll be sending video of yourself to friends and family in no time Instructions
  1. Access the main menu of your Aspire 1, and click on the "Start" menu at the bottom of the screen

  2. Click on "All Programs" from the list of options, and then select "Acer Arcade Delux."

  3. Choose the "DV Wizard" option once the menu appears. Wait for the program to load.

  4. Select "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" from the main menu of DV Wizard. Now an image capture screen will appear on your desktop.

  5. Position the Acer so you are framed clearly in the image capture screen. The webcam is built into the computer with the lens at the top of the screen, so you will have to move the entire laptop to find the right angle. Also, adjust the lighting near you for optimum picture quality.

  6. Go to the tool bar in the lower left hand corner of the computer screen to access the functions of the webcam. If you would like to record, highlight the box icon with the red dot in the middle and the word "Record" will appear over it.

  7. Click the "Record" icon to record video with the webcam. You can also choose "Pause" and "Stop" from the same tool bar. To use video messaging, access your online messenger. Whether it's AOL, MSN or any other messenger service, the program will detect the webcam. All you need to do is enable the video messaging by clicking on the webcam box.

The screen is black on my computer aspire one acer


This has happened to my computer twice, the computer starts up but nothing appears on the screen. Both times it was a corrupted BIOS that needed to be updated - if you follow the instructions here it is a simple fix. If it is too complicated then point out the link to a techie friend and get them to do it for you:

My Acer Aspire one won't turn on.


I also have this problem with my Acer netbook.  I have only had it for 4 months and am in Turkey on an extended break at the moment.  I have taken the netbook to a dealer here and have been told the problem is the motherboard, verified by Acer themselves.  I am not happy with this as the netbook was not cheap and there appears to be a few Acer models with the same problem
