Acer Aspire 5520 - Help!

Hi all. I've had my laptop for just over 6 months and everything was fine (apart from the touchpad having a mind of its own!) Just before Christmas I noticed that webpages were freezing or taking age to load or not at all.......however, other laptops in the house were working fine so it was not the internet connection, so the only remedy seemed to be was to reboot the laptop, however occasionally as it would boot back up the whole system would just close down, after a few minutes I would turn it on and it would go to the Windows Error Recovery page.

However, I did this last night but instead of "Start Windows Normally" and went on to "Launch System Repair" as it was being recommended and it said something about Volume Memory Corruption" but there were no corrections for me to make or anything so there were no changes made. However, now I can not get onto Windows. I keep getting back to the Windows Recovery Error page and its driving me mad.

Has anyone got any ideas what is wrong? Many thanks!

Can you click "start" usually on the right bottom screen? if you can, then there will be a list of all your programs. at the very bottom there is a search bar. There, type in "system restore." after going though this process, your computer should be normal.

I dnt have driver for ma laptop acer aspire 5520-5908

Here is a link to all the drivers for your model.

More than likely, you will need the MOST UP TO DATE:

  1. Chipset
  2. Audio
  3. Touchpad
  4. Graphics (VGA)
  5. Wireless
You may have some of those installed already, which is okay, you can pick and choose. Good luck!
