Acer ZG5 lsass.exe Part 2

Ok I did what sp4m771 told me to do I went on the computer copy CD files over to my usb flash drive start up my acer went into the BIOS settings press F2 before the windows logo appears. Then went to boot device priority, and choose the priority to boot from a USB HDD higher than your Hard drive. Save the setting and restart my computer with the flash drive in it. Now it started up went to a black screen with a blinking ''_'' then the flash drive started blinking and the begun blinking slowly does that mean its working? If so how long am I suppose to wait?

    I have a problem with my computer it was fine until two days ago I turned it on and it booted up normally, I got to the log in screen and before I could log in a box pop up saying "lsass.exe insufficent system resources exist to complete the API'' so I tried to go into safe mode it wouldn't let me go into it or any other mode. And it keep restarting and saying the same thing again and then this Blue screen came up. I researched it online and found out it was called "The Blue Screen of Death" Then I tried pressing ALT and F10 to get to the recovery screen and that didnt work either. I don't have a CD rom on my laptop because it wasn't made with one so I cant put the recovery CD in it. I had this problem before and I know that this is not a virus.....please help I have no idea what else I can do. Is there a way I can hook up my laptop to another computer that has a CD rom and use the recovery Cd through the computer to help fix my laptop like that?

    No its called a CAT-5 Cable, get someone to do the cabling for you if you wanna try it

  • abhijitpande Jul 24, 2009

    its is very similar to a telephone cord but a little bigger, so you have to look for a telephone cord like socket on the laptop(most probably on the side) and behind you pc the cord that you use for internet is a CAT-5 or ethernet cable

  • abhijitpande Jul 24, 2009

    first check if your laptop and PC have an NIC, if you use dialup then you might not have it, If you are using broadband then you have an NIC, The cat 5 cable can be purchased from any network hardware or wiring shop

I have a lsass.exe error message and netbook keeps restarting, it wont boot in safe mode or anything and I have no cd drive either. Please help...

lsass.exe is certainly a virus issue, the actual process isnt really a virus but viruses hijack the process for their own nefarious reasons.
You only have two options really, 1) use a boot disk antivirus (search google for avg boot cd) and then use the restore disks to try and repair the system file (copy the one off the restore disk to replace the corrupt one on your system)
2) Use your restore disks / another installation disk to build a new operating system.

Just remember if you have data on the drive to take it out to get your data off first. Personally I'd take your drive out and put a new drive in, then build a new OS on the new drive, nice clean and fast, then put your data onto it.

Try this guide for flashing the BIOS which is a common cause for this problem. You will need a flash drive and the bios files from Acer support downloads, takes about 10-15 minutes total for this repair.

Acer One Black Screen of Death Repair…..

In most cases the black screen of death for the Acer One is due to a bad update or corrupt BIOS. In 90% of the cases, this black screen can be cured by flashing the BIOS of the Acer One.
The first thing you will need besides the netbook is a flash drive, preferably a 1 GB version so you have plenty of room. Make sure it a flash drive and not a reader or mp3 player.
Go to the Acer support site and go to service and support and go to the drivers download section. Navigate to the exact model of your Acer One, it will be labeled on the bottom of the case. It will be something like AOA150 etc….
Once you choose the model, choose BIOS and download the latest that is listed. Save it to a folder on the desktop so you can find it later. Now find the file and unzip it to that folder. When the files are unzipped they will all be listed.
Now go to “My Computer” in the control panel and find the flash drive listed. Right click on the flash drive and scroll down to “Format”. Choose “FAT” as the format….not fat32 and not ntfs. Run the format, hit apply and accept and the flash drive will be formatted to the “FAT” file system, this will allow it to boot your computer and flash the new BIOS.
Now go to the folder that has the unzipped BIOS files. Now find the folder named…. “Dos_Flash…open this folder and you will find the file that has the version number of the BIOS files needed to flash the BIOS. Right click on this file and scroll down to “Rename”, choose rename. You have to change this file name to the following…..zg5ia32.fd
Now, copy this renamed file to the flash drive that you previously formatted and also copy the file, Flashit.exe to the drive as well. This file is in the same folder as the one you previously renamed.
Now make sure the netbook is off and is fully charged. Now connect the flash drive to any of the available USB slots. Now, press the “Fn” key and hold it as well as the “Escape” key and hold it. Hold these two down together and do not let go of them. While you are holding these two keys down, press the power button and hold it down until you see the green power indicator light comes on and starts blinking…once this happens, let go of the other buttons and observe the indicator light on the flash drive. It should also start blinking indicating files being read on the flash drive. Now, just wait up to 1-10 minutes for the BIOS to be written and flashed. If it all goes well…..the system should boot up without incident and without any data loss.

I want to downlaod window xp on my acer zg5 . i can't pls help

providing that you have enough room on the harddrive all you should have to do is insert the cd and turn off the computer and restart than it will say boot from cd than it will say boot from cd press any key than after this it should start the examining process and after this it will ask you if you want to install or upgrade or repair say either upgrade or install and go from their.
If it shows the partition with the current version on it you can delete the partition or create a new partition so this is up to you but be advised if you delete the partition all data (will) be lost ok ? and you will have to create a partition DONT FORGET THIS STEP IF YOU DECIDE TO DELETE THE PARTITION OK? BUT IF if no partition is shown just continue with the installation and the rest is very self explanitory ok? i hope this helped out a lot
best regards michael

Use another computer to copy the files from the CD over to a USB flash drive, if you have got one. Then start up you Acer and go into the BIOS settings (press F1,F2 or DEL a few times before the windows logo appears) Then go to boot device priority or something similar, and choose the priority to boot from a USB HDD higher than your Hard drive. Just to be sure, put it as number one. Save the settings and exit, and restart your computer with the USB flash drive with the files inside in your computer.

Battery will not charge

Power reset the unit, unplug it pop out the battery and hold the power down for a minute, put the battery and ac adapter back in and start her up, the mobo was probably still holding power when the battery died causing a "hiccup"in the system, this should resolve or at least help a little
