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.

SOURCE: Region setting on Acer Aspire 8920

Older DVD drives use RPC-1 firmware, which means the drive allows DVDs from any region to play. Newer drives use RPC-2 firmware, which enforces the DVD region coding at the hardware level. These drives can often be reflashed with hacked or Australia and New Zealand (hardware region coding prohibited by law in these countries) RPC-1 firmware, effectively making the drive region-free. However, this usually voids the warranty and can render the drive inoperable if something goes wrong... better contact your laptop manufacturer regarding this

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5315 Vista Windows boot problem

have you checked if your pc is compatible with win7? use this to check it: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx
and if it is, try to do a clean install. boot from the cd. insert the disc. restart pc, as soon as it has power, press F12 several times and highlight cd/dvd drive or ODD using your arrow keys then press enter. it will load the cd from there. And that should work fine.

SOURCE: where is the cmos battery on an acer aspire 8920

Before you start

1) Read through the owner's manual for your particular Acer Aspire laptop to determine what kind of CMOS battery you need.

2) Purchase the battery through Acer or a local or online computer parts dealer.

3) Turn the laptop off and unplug it. Also unplug any external hard drives, cameras, or other external devices.

4) Turn the laptop over (bottom facing up), then touch something metal to remove static charge.


Removal of the CMOS battery

Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover (refer to your owner's manual if necessary), then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing. Lay the cover aside then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable then remove the battery.


The battery should look something like this


slasher_x_0.jpg Plugging the new battery in
Plug the new CMOS battery cable into the motherboard. Slide the battery partially under the laptop casing (somewhere to hold it in place), then align the cover with the slots on the bottom of the laptop housing. Replace the screws then turn the laptop back over.

Finalizing
1) Turn the laptop on.
2)Enter your BIOS (usually by pressing the "Delete" key) before the operating system loads.
3) Follow the BIOS prompts or refer to your Acer Aspire owner's manual to reset your time, date and desired system settings.

Reason: Anytime the CMOS battery is unplugged for more than a few seconds your BIOS will be reset to the default manufacturer settings. If you make any changes to the BIOS that cause problems with your Acer Aspire, unplug the CMOS battery for 3 to 5 seconds to correct the problem.

SOURCE: I need a service manual

  1. Click this ACER Link
  2. Choose <Notebook>
  3. Choose <Aspire>
  4. Choose you <Model> (this is USA model 8920 G)
  5. Choose your <Operating System>
  6. Choose the "Document" Tab... The "DRIVER" Tab is Probably already highlighted, DOCUMENTS is to the left of Driver and looks grayed out, just click it.
  7. Scroll Down To the Orange Download Icon called: "User Manual"
You can either Download and/or save it to your Desktop or Documents folder, to read from there, or Print it. I'm not certain as to how many pages, exactly, but some manuals are huge and many pages are wasted.

Thank You For Choosing FixYa~!

Acer 8920 G restarts after 3 min and again shuts down


First make sure your fan is operating on your processor it takes about 3 mins for it to over heat and stop and shut itself down for safety to prevent burning up the processor.if its not this read on.
Also when you boot into safe mode then do a system restore to a date before the problem started. But first in safe mode run your antivirus scan to find something that is missed while being hid behind the operating system while functioning.
