Off course it is repairable dont worry look try to install OS thru the following procedure to factory default state

Acer: When you first turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).

if it installs the OS ok then fine if not

pls consider changing RAM take out from beneath the laptop open the cover all screws and take out the L shaped panel then u will see the RAM in front with 2 chips one uper and one lower side try to take out both and then re fit only one in the upper slot and then try to install if hangs again , then try the 2nd chip in the first slot and repeat the procedure if it works ok only try both chips one by one if it resolves ur issue and u find the faulty one replace it with new one with sam specs

in the last case if ur system still hangs then my friend ur hard disk is giving u hard time it needs replacement

when a system boots after bios loading all that is trf from Hdisk to RAM and then OS is loaded if one have problem system will hang or freeze try these solutions and then tell me the results

pls go step by step

and pls rate me fixya if i fixed ur problem

kindly let me know abt it and tell me in detail the messages u get and the system behaviour

Need to reset my Windows Vista password on an old laptop. I forgot it.


Which operating system ????....

If you forget your Windows Vista password, you can reset it quickly and safely using a password reset disk or an administrator account.
Windows Vista allows you to create several accounts for different users; however, the administrator account controls system settings and manages the entire computer.
If you forget your password, resetting it allows you to create a new one to access system files. The reset procedure involves using simple password reset wizards.

Restart your computer and wait for the logon screen to appear.
Enter an incorrect password in the Password field and wait for the "User name or password is incorrect" message to appear.
Click "OK."

Click the "Reset Password" button to start the Password Reset wizard.
Insert your password reset disc in the optical drive, or if it is an external drive, connect it to an open USB port on your computer.

Click "Next" on the password reset wizard and select the password reset disk from the list of options. Type a new password and a hint for the password.
Click "Next."
Click "Finish" to log in with the new password.
Using an Administrator Account

Log in to your administrator account if you are the computer's administrator.

Click the "Start" button, type "lusrmgr.msc" (without quotes) in the search field and press "Enter." If prompted, enter your administrator password.

Double-click "Local Users and Groups" and then click "Users."
Right-click the account belonging to the user who forgot his password and click "Set Password."
Enter a new password yourself or have the account owner enter a new password he wants to use.
Re-enter the password for confirmation.

I cannot start up my acer aspire 584g32bn


Safe Mode and System Restore can fix startup issues in an Acer Aspire One, but if the computer won't even load the boot screen, the problem could be related to the basic input/output system (BIOS).
The Acer Aspire One 110 and 150 are two models that can have BIOS-related problems that prevent the computer from booting.
You can upgrade the BIOS through a USB flash drive to repair this issue.
If you are able boot past the startup screen, but can't sign in to Windows, you can use Windows Advanced Boot Options to bypass startup problems.

Go to the Acer website (see Below).
http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
Click "Support," then select "Download" from the menu on the left.
Select "Netbook" as the product family.
Click "Aspire One" as the product line. Select "AOA110" or "AOA150" as the product model.


Click the "BIOS" tab.
Click the download button and save the file to the desktop.


Go to the desktop when the download completes.
Double-click the file to open it.


Drag-and-drop the folder to the desktop.
Double-click the folder to open its contents in Windows Explorer.


Double-click the "BIOS_Acer_3310_A_AOA110 & AOA150" folder.
Double-click the "Dos_Flash" folder.


Insert a blank USB flash drive into a USB slot.
Drag-and-drop the "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" files to the flash drive.


Right-click the "3310.fd" file. Click "Rename."
Change the file name to "zg5ia32.fd" and press "Enter."


Connect the AC adapter to the power jack.
Hold down "Fn" and "Esc" with one hand, then press the power button with the other.


Release the "Fn" and "Esc" keys when the power indicator light comes on.
Wait at least seven minutes for the system to fix the BIOS and repair the Acer Aspire One startup issues.
The computer will restart automatically when the process is complete.

Other Models

Turn on the computer.
Press "F8" before the Windows logo appears to access the Windows Advanced Boot Options menu.


Scroll to Last-Known Good Configuration.
Press "Enter" to load Windows.
If the OS fails to start up, hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the computer.


Press the power button to turn the Acer Aspire One back on. Press "F8," then select "Safe Mode" from the options.


Log in to Safe Mode. Click "Start," "All Programs," "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Click "Next."


Select the last working restore point from the options. Click "Next."
Click "Finish" to run System Restore and recover the Acer Aspire One to a previous state.

I adjusted resolution on my HP notebook now when I turn on cant see screen. Please help


Hi Jess,

Boot the computer in SAFE MODE by Restarting the computer, and the moment its on keep tapping the F8 key untill you see a screen saying "Windows Advanced option...".

1. Select Safe Mode using the keyboard arrow key and hit enter.
2. This will load all basic drivers to start safe mode operation.
3. Go to Display Properties (WindowsXP) or Display Settings (Windows Vista) by right click on empty blank space on Desktop, then select Properties(Windows XP) or Personalize(Windows Vista).
4. Then change the resolution by sliding the Low to High slider bar. Do not press "OK" or "Apply" at this time.
5. Instead, click on Advanced Settings, and then click OK. Windows in Safe Mode will change the screen resolution according to new settings, and prompt a "Monitor Settings" dialog box prompting that desktop has been reconfigured, with countdown timer. Click on Yes to keep the new settings.
6. Alternatively, simply click on Advanced, go to Adapter tab, then click on List All Mode. Select a mode with screen resolution size and color mode that you prefer, and click on OK. Windows will apply the new resolution size and color quality on Safe Mode too.

I have an ACER ASPIRE 7720 with Vista. On starting the computer I get a message saying "launch start up repair" which tells me I need a Vista Driver CD Recovery Disc. I don't have one nor did it come with...


Hello,

Nowadays the computer comes with the Recovery Disks inside on the Hard Drive for you to Burn on disks. The options changes from manufacturer to manufacturer, but try to bootup in safe mode with F8 key and search on start menu for tools related to the manufacturer computer (ex. On some HP is START | PC Tools).

Check when the computer is booting for options of recovery before windows starts.

Beware, in most cases you can Burn the disk once.

Acer 7720 will not boot


Do you want to try and see if a 'Linux LiveCD' boots? This is the way I test if the computer works. You burn this CD to a disk, and then boot off of it when you're computer starts. I will not modify anything on your computer as long as you go to 'Try Ubuntu with out installing'

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Don't worry, I'm not trying to get you to install anything, just see if it boots into the 'live environment' (means you are running it off of the cd) If this works, that means that it is only your windows installation is messed up, and a reinstallation of windows should work fine with a Windows install CD NOT the recovery cd.

Will not boot windows


Hi,
Tap F8 on Startup and it'll open up Advanced Settings/BIOS. Tap to Start WIndows in Safe Mode. When you have gotten to the Safe Mode Desktop, navigate to My Computer > C:// > WIndows > System32 and scroll down to an Application called rstrui .
Double-click on that to restore the system back to a point before it was messed up.

Hope that helps
