Hi,
I don't fully understand why your BIOS splash screen hangs for 30 secs, but its most likely due to a change in your BIOS settings. You will find a setting in your BIOS to disable the splash screen or to alter other settings to shorten the time that your splash screen is displayed.
Feel free to message me for any further info regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Aspire laptop has become very slow to power up


It is cause by a very serious virus called "Conflicker"
Try to Do a upgrade of 7 (Free upgrade from Microsoft).
The upgrade does not delete your files, it should detect and erase viruses and the startup is quicker. (22 secs on my Dell Inspiron 2200 with 512MB RAM!!!)
Currently, the only other solution is to do a complete re-install.

Yes, you can upgrade it to 1 GB RAM.But I recomend you to change it to 2 GB RAM (two 1 GB RAM).It will boost your performance tremendously.

Consider1 GB RAM with 600/666 Mhz.

    Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


    This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

    You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

    After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


    Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To prevent the computer from freezing up, make sure you are running nothing else while you are trying to burn the disk. You can also change the programs that are starting up. Hit start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, uncheck everything, restart the computer. Then try to burn the disk. Also you can run CCleaner to repair some of your registry.

    Perform a system recovery:
    Does not come with recovery cd's - there is a program that allows you to burn the disks or
    recover.
    3 ways:

    1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
    click on Restore at bottom then "Restore to factory default settings"
    2. Or click on Burn disks instead of restore
    3. if unable to ge into Windows then Alt/F10 during boot right after Acer splash screen on startup
