Hi, I'd like to have my RC500 up-to-day with standards for a media center (not games) with web radio, music and Blu-Ray. Though I /think) I have 2 problems:
1) Is the power supply unit an obstacle with its 200W? Is it fixable?
2) How fast can I go for the processor? Core Duo is possible?
I really have to find a solution, or I will loose my head and buy a new one (and this one is gorgeous).

You can get the drivers from this link: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/TV-Tuner-Co/Others/Acer-Aspire-RC500-RC900-TV-Tuner-Driver-5131243.shtml. Or chose your OS if required and then download it....................sodeep
I experienced this very thing today. Disconnect everything and then reconnect. Make sure that every connection is accurate and also make sure that the spacers, or gold screws in between the case's body and the motherboard, are in place. If the fans are starting for a split second and then the computer shuts off then this should fix your problem. Otherwise if you're using all of the same components I can't think of any reason this should happen.
contact the supper dial provider to send you the driver or the software first if you don't know how to contact them or you lost the information so try to
go to www.driveragent and make scan to your driver the web site will tell you if you need the driver and will offer it to you
The driver for the TV Tuner that came with your system is Leadtek Winfast TV2000
Download the driver at this link under the TV Tuner Driver catagory.
Hope this works for you
It sounds like the CPU is overheating. When the system boots up, can you hit the DEL, ESC, or F12 key to get it into BIOS mode? Often, there will be a setting in there to monitor the processor temperature.
If you can get it into that screen, leave the computer in that mode and keep checking the temp.
Make sure the machine itself has good air circulation and isn't in a hot spot in your house (for example, where sunlight hits the main box) If it continues to flounder, you'll probably need to upgrade the CPU fan or install a heat exchanger fan...
