Question about Acer Computers & Internet

My acer aspire 7520, running vista takes ages to start up, i hardly use it so its not clogged up with software, also , i am an artist and store 'resized' photos of my work(approx 100)and would like to run these as a slideshow with music, but when i do, sometimes it seems to struggle, with the pics and music breaking up. i thought it was the norton antivirus slowing things down but that expired and i now have a free avg a/virus.

You are dealing with the main complaint about's slow, but a lot can be done to move it along. One thing that would help would be to download a reputable register cleaner. Here is a comparison table:

Unfortunately, the top one costs $30. A second thing you should do is download SPYBOT S&D. Download it from a reputable place: DOWNLOAD.COM. It is a spyware cleaner. Run it and have it take any spyware off your machine.

The third thing you can do is take a look at these suggestions that apply to a lenovo, but should apply to just about any notebook:

It is a pretty comprehensive list of things you can do. My guess is that your machine came with a bunch of software preinstalled that you do not use.

The 4th thing I would do (and I would do this first) is UNINSTALL every piece of software you have on the machine that you do not use and do not plan to use. Go to start, control program, programs and features, and uninstall one at a time.

Somewhere in this series, you are going to get much better performance...I guarantee it.

Iv tryed most things. my acer aspire 7520 laptop has lost the dvd/cd player from the device manager so it will not work it is connected and it starts up.but no picture or sound.

You need to reset the hi and lo filters for the device, as this is caused by a registry error or corruption
Close all open programs

Click on Start

Click Run

Type REGEDIT and press Enter

Vista doesn't come with the run command enabled so just type REGEDIT in the search bar above Start..

Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders to open them.






(looks like same file name for XP and Vista?)

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters
Lower Filters
Upper Filters.bak
Lower Filters.bak

Acer Aspire 7520, running windows Vista, keeps overheating and shutting down. It is fairly new - less than a year old. Does not run for much more than 20 minutes before shutting off. It was purchased in...

Sounds like there is dust where the cpu fan is and its blocking the ventilation path in the laptop. If you can take apart the laptop to expose the fan, I would make sure the fan is free of debris. Clogged CPU fans will cause the laptop to overheat cause the air has nowhere to go.

If you do that and the laptop is still overheating then the motherboard is going bad unless your not using the correct charger for it. If you use a charger that puts out more voltage then whats needed then that could cause the laptop to overheat so you might need a new charger.

Ethernet Controller

acer only has vista drivers for this laptop, if you want me to find you the driver you need I will need to find some details from the device.

press start -> then Run -> type in: msinfo32

In msinfo32, on the left side, see components and then problem devices.

I need you to post me everything it says here

I need to know all devices, the FULL PNP Device ID you may need to move the text bar so you can see the full text on that, and if there is a error on the last field also include that.

Erratic behavior with Acer Aspire 9300

How about just reinstalling the OS and seeing what happens. If you are running Vista it is most likely just a bad original install. You should have installation discs supplied and you should have been encouraged to make your own reinstall disc when you first run the machine. If you did not then check your handbook to find out how to do it. It will make a disc from the ghost partition on the hard drive. use this to reinstall and take drivers from one of the original discs supplied with machine
