Question about Acer Computers & Internet

Open Question

Screen resize on monitor off.

I recently installed windows 7 release candidate on my acer aspire 5520-5334 laptop. i noticed tat when my computer's display turns off for energy saving, the desktop display changes into a smaller size and when i resume my work, the screen size enlarges to its original full size but the desktop icons has already been moved around. it just feels annoying that i have to rearrange the icond the way i want everytime it gets messed up by the screen resizing. what can i do to sop the screen from resizing? this never happened when i had windows vista home premium and also during my winxp installs. thanks in advance.

    Did the same thing happen when you had the beta version? Have you given feedback to Microsoft regarding this issue? I know the release candidate is supposed to be the beta with the bugs worked out, but have you ever seen a Microsoft final product that worked?

If you dropped your laptop and the screen got broken, there is no way to fix it via any software change. But you have two options:

  1. Connect an external monitor via VGA port, more information here
  2. Get fixed it by Acer service

I have an aspire one ZG5 with windows 7 OS but an evaluation copy only!now i want to return my OS to windows XP but the erecovery software is no longer on my laptop!what is the best thing to do?


It appears that you have been using Windows 7 RC (release candidate)
When it was installed, you or whoever performed the installation deleted the recovery partition, from what I can tell.

So, either borrow a disc (OS that matches the one you had originally) and install it using your windows product key.

Or........ Go get Windows 7......that's my best advice, honestly.

I ran the RC and got lucky in October, when I was awarded a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. For most users, Home Premium or Professional (If you like the extra options like the full on backup features) will suffice. Most folks, nearly anyone, has no dire need for the Ultimate version.

Resolution problem in Windows 7


Windows 7 official release is in Oct. The Windows 7 version you have is probably the Release Candidate version, this is the last Beta version before its offical release. This version does not have drivers for al lot of devices and if you cannot get the driver from ATI at this stage then you have to wait until it becomes available.
The release Candidate will shut down every hour early next year and will stop working completely in June. You will be forced to buy Windows 7 or go back to XP or Vista.

I changed out the hard drive that came with my Acer Aspire 4530 and put Win7 on it. I see that there is a bluetooth button but when I try to turn it on it never lights up. Beyond that there is no Bluetooth...


Many acer notebooks have a bluetooth button but no bluetooth installed, two of the acer laptops I've owned have had the buttons for the bluetooth, but when pressed a message about No device has come up on both machines. The bluetooth is possible to be added to the machine but not installed from factory.

I'd need to know the exact model from the bottom of the laptop to confirm if it comes with bluetooth or not.

For example. Acer Aspire 1522wlmi

Exactly I have these problems


Windows 7 has not been released for sale yet, what you have is the RC copy (Release candidate) which is the final beta version just before the official launch of Windows 7. Most likely some changes will be made to the final version. The reason why your Nvidia doesn't work is because the driver for your device and many others have not been written yet or tested properly or certified by Microsoft and or the manufacturer of your device. Check the manufacturer's WEB site for the latest driver.
NOTE the Windows 7 RC copy will cease working completely in June 2010, just prior to that, you wil need to start Windows again once every hour.
