I'm trying to add software to my Acer desktop but the door won't stay shut after I put my disk in??? The first time I tried, it sounded like a train was going through the computer, after that the door won't stay shut.

    you need to replace the CD drive. they are not that expentive and you can get an external usb that when you use it, it works great. i had to do that to complety reintall my older machine with XP on it. but it turned out that it was over heating and the on off switch was also bad.

Acer Veriton M498g - ui3540c won't start


Need more info, Give as much detail as you can. What happens when you push the on/off button? Fan spin? LED's Blink? Any thing on the screen? Sound? Does the computer try to start and a second later shut down? Check the power cord, check the AC outlet? Is it on a UPS? Try AC outlet? Can you get to BIOS or Boot Menu? ETC.

I was restoring from the Acer recovery disk that I created when my process crashed before it completed. Now it won't boot up at all...HELP!


Your best bet is to reinstall the operating system. I couldn't count the number of times that the Recovery Discs created by users fail, it's very common. The only recovery that works a high percentage of the time is when the manufacturer puts a recovery partition on your hard drive.

You can try your Recovery Disc again, but if it produces the same results, just reinstall your operating system fresh. It shouldn't matter because either way you will lose your data.

Cd drive door won't stay shut


This is an indication that the CD-drive is detecting that the inserted disk is not FULLY inserted.
If it is fully inserted, and it is mis-reporting the condition, then spend $35 to purchase a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

I cannot eject a cd from the drive. i have tried to eject using the button and in my computer. in device manager it says the device is fine. any ideas?? there isnt an manual eject hole for the paperclip...


Shut down the PC, for 2min, then turn on, this is either a hardware or software problem. Software meaning that it is unable to execute the command to eject, shutting down and turning on may resolve this problem. Or hardware is the sence that the disk is Physicaly stuck in which case you would need some one with the know how to remove the disk without damaging the components within.
Your timely rating of this soloution is much appreciated.
Thanks

My acer aspire l100 keeps shutting off. it sometimes will stay on for like two minutes but most of the time it shuts down after like 30 seconds. it works fine in safe mode. most of the time it shuts off...


this seems like a software issue . if you can not run your system but ift works fine in safe mode try to run a system restore from factory disks and see where that gets you,

Door spring fell off I can not get it back on to work


Not much I can help with here, except maybe grab two tweezers or two small needle nose pliers and try to get that spring in there. Will take a try or two, but you'll get it.

I want to restore my Acer Aspire M1100 desktop computer back to factory settings. I have the disks from Acer, one is a System Disk and one is a Recovery Disk. Is there any way to restore/reinstall Vista...


Hello,

If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.

If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

Thank you for using Fixya
Hope this helps.

Pc wont power down


Sounds like a software application is not allowing machine to shut down. Try using the task manager to shut down all applications and processes manually, then try the shutdown option. If this works you will have to go through software apps one by one until you find the culprit. Hope this helps.
