If the recovery discs wont work you may want to low level format (powermax) and try a fresh install. only downside is u will need a copy of windows with the serial key and u will lose all your data - http://digilander.libero.it/YorkOne/powermax/ - download and burn to cd >>> powermax-4.09.iso

Acer aspire 5515 wont go past boot screen


You might have some viruses and malware..

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

Monitor flickering and rolling


Thanks for the git back: #1 I hooked up a second monitor (depressed fn+f5) and was able to view everything fine. No problem in any area. Ran Some security checks (malwarebytes,checked windows updates,Secunia PSI,and a virus scan. #2 I opened up the monitor and checked for possible loose connections. #3 brought up the graphics display and checked that 60 hrz was set and correct. #4 ran a backup of all my data from my other monitor,and I made the assumption that it was a bad monitor and I might save some money if I just bought a new laptop.Would like to here your comments. Sincerely : dandee4u3

Acer Aspire 3690 remove the screen


There screws all around the lcd that are hidden by black rubber / plastic.

Examine the plastic and you'll see them. Pop them off with a straight blade screwdriver.

Then just unscrew all the screws. Most use only 4-6 screws.

Once they are all out. Carefully pull the plastic housing off with your hands. You shouldn't have to use much force so try to be gentle.

Afterwards you should be able to take it from there. There will be brackets holding the lcd in place.

Take those out and then remove the lcd cable from the back of the screen and the inverter from the bottom portion of the lcd.

Swap the lcds and put everything back together.

That should do the trick.

Let me know if you get stuck.

I got a virus infected on my computer and want to set it to factor setting. How can I do that. My comp is Acer Aspire 3690. Bunky


Hi there,

you can download avast virus scanner its free.

or if you want to restore to factory settings turn the laptop on and hold F11

Or if you have system discs then just insert this and turn the laptop back on and it will boot from them.

Please rate

Thanks

I cant download music or use instand messaging on my laptop


When you try to send or download, look at the bottom tool bar. It is blocking because of your virus protection. Just right-click on that bar and click "allow"..

you can try to boot up in safe mode, F8 when you turn it on (try to save your personal files to USB Drive)
Most likely, you will have to reload/restore your Operating system...

Acer Aspire 5100 will not start right


It seems your hard drive has corupted.
This sucks, all you have to do is push ALT F10 and then go through the reseting menu, you will loose everything on there though except the original data.
