Acer Aspire 3610 - "C" drive full -- FAT32 error - HELP

Hi.
Complete computer tech novice.
Everytime I turn the computer on it takes about 10minutes as the "FAT32" has "malfunctioned".
Also, I constantly get a notice saying low disc space on "C" drive but I have removed all the programs I installed, music and photos - there is nothing left.
Please, in laymans terms can I fix this without the expense of going to a computer technician? Or is it beyond repair?
Thanks

Sounds like either you have corrupt system files or viruses that are not allowing the operating system to run properly.

when you first turn on the laptop hold down the ALT key and keep pressing F10, if it works then this will take you into the factory restore partition and you can bring your system back to factory defaults like it just came out of the box.

if that method doesn't work then If you have the cd's to your laptop you'll need to restore your laptop back to factory defaults doing it this way.

Sounds like spyware has infected your system. Download, install, run Spybot (spybot.com) and remove problems. Good luck.

Hi Fixya computer Expert... Question: Does the Acer laptop, 2002, Aspire 3610 have a WiFi hardware system? If not, can a WiFi pack be installed? Thank you. Walter


The tech specs on Acer's web site state that the 3610 did ship with wireless.

If your wireless is no longer working try installing the driver.

Also a picture can be found here of the wifi card that should be installed in the laptop. http://cgi.ebay.com/Acer-Aspire-3610-Wireless-WIFI-Card-WM3B2200BG-TESTED-/370304921123?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5637e4ae23

Acer aspire 3610 wont reboot


Hey, ohh these irritating virus and grab on the net, take lot lot of time to fix...

Do you have any windows xp cd/key that are bootable?

If not i think you need one.

You need to do a complete reinstall from scratch.

As you mention as novice, it might bee to mutch work?
Maybee you know someone who can help you to this first step getting windows xp installed again?

After that try install the free AVG antivirus, you can find link here to latest free version.

Also setup windows firewall, to protect you computer.

I had problems with virus as well, but i noadays use firefox browser,instead of internet explorer, firefox is more safe to use. Also microsoft office is uninstalled, and instead i installed openoffice, and thunderbird mail program.

I never have problem with virus anymore.

Sorry i can't help you anymore online than this,

wish you the best michael
