Re: Scroll problems page waves and ripples,wont jog down...

This can be caused from 3 different problems.

1. your hard drive is corrupt and the temporary memory or the system RAM is corrupting your video output.
2. Compressing files and deleting them may have caused your data to be accessed slower.
3. Your video card is dieing and needs to be replaced.

Replacing any of the hardware items listed above will not be worth it in comparison to buying a new PC. Plus it's most likely your old PC isn't going to work much longer if it's a Hardware Problem. If you don't have a lot of money and want a quality computer go to to get a new PC. Anyway I'm sure you will get it figured out. If your afraid of Vista you should know Computer Rescue does not sell Vista. They sell XP and Linux.

5 ways to speed up your PC

By following a few simple guidelines, you can maintain your computer and keep it running smoothly. This article discusses how to use the tools available in Windows 7, Vista, and">XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) to more efficiently maintain your computer and safeguard your privacy when you're online.

1. Free up disk space

The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk to improve the performance of your computer. The tool identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.

Use Disk Cleanup to:

  • Remove temporary Internet files.

  • Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).

  • Empty the Recycle Bin.

  • Remove Windows temporary files such as error reports.

  • Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.

  • Remove installed programs that you no longer use.

  • Remove unused restore points and shadow copies from System Restore.

Tip: Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.

To use Disk Cleanup

Window 7 users

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.

  2. When Disk Cleanup has calculated how much space you can free, in the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.

The cooling fan in my Acer Aspire laptop (bought 1 year ago) stopped working. Can it be replaced or is it part of the motherboard?

As stated it can be replaced. Might be the pits in finding the replacement fan, though.

Let's take a look at an Acer Aspire 5520 series laptop, as an example,

Scroll down until you come to the third photo.

Getting to the Cooling Fan in the Acer Aspire 5050 series Notebook PC's, requires a lot more disassembly, however.

The Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook PC, in the category heading, is part of the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's.

This is the Service Manual for the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's,

Go to the second Aspire heading.
The one that begins with Aspire 1200.

Now go down to the 5th line, and scroll across to > 5050.
Left-click on 5050.

This is a PDF file.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

[ Although I would recommend upgrading to Adobe Reader 9, if it isn't on your computer ]

After you click on the file > 5050, you won't see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.

Most of the time the first page pops up within 10 seconds, and it requires additional time to fully download the file.

Suggest you let the file download all the way, before looking through it.
Watch the Download Progress bar.

You can save this file to your computer.
This way you can burn a copy to CD for safekeeping, and easy access anytime you wish.

You can also delete from your computer then, to save Harddrive space.
If you do not know how, and wish to, simply post in a Comment.

For further questions on this please post in a Comment.

How do I remove a bios password and hard drive password from an Acer 3050 laptop?

juan_perez_m, I would like you to download the Service Manual, for the Acer Aspire 3050 series of laptops,

On this page you can go to the Right side, and click on Acer, or scroll down the page to the heading - Acer.

In the paragraph(?) that starts with Aspire 1200, go down to the second line.
Scroll across to 3050, and Left-click on it.
(Fifteenth one over)

This is a PDF file. Give it a few seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
(Advise letting the file download all the way before looking through it.
Watch the Download Progress bar)

Once the file has fully downloaded, go to Page 105 shown in the PDF page number box.

(The page number box is in the top header, to the right of the blue Down Arrow.

Instead of using the Down Arrow to go to Page 105, you can left-click once in the page number box, type 105, and press the Enter key.
Much faster.

Ignore if you are already aware)

Clear BIOS Password Procedures.
G1 is the clear BIOS password jumper.

Yessir, you have to disassemble the laptop, in order to access this jumper.
It's a method to help prevent thievery.

Don't forget to observe Anti-Static Precautions before, and during disassembly.

If what I have stated sounds like a foreign language to you, come back in a Comment, and we'll work together on the procedure.

Laptop has become slow ,Could it be the RAM

Run sytem tools and do a disc cleanup. Then run a disk defragment.
Also keep up with the cleaning of unnecessary files such as deleting browsing history etc. I recommend CCleaner - it even has a registry cleaner that is very safe and effective. it is a freeware program and works great. Also try running Malwarebytes, that removes adware spyware (again its freeware) as that could be slowing you down.

I cant get into the network centre settings and i have no wireless icon

Found this on the web and it worked for me: "Follow this then restart and everything should come back to normal. It took me 3 minutes and worked fine. This is to find and delete the networking folder (which is causing the problem): 1. From the regular Aspire One options page, go to the Files panel 2. Click on the triangle to see more icons 3. Click on MyFiles, which opens a file manager window. 4. In the menu bar, select View->Hidden files, to show a tick in the box. You should be in the "My Disk:///" directory. 5. Scroll down until you find folder "gconf" and then click on that 6. Find folder "system" and click on that 7. You should now see folder "networking" listed as one of the folders. 8. DELETE IT! (Right click on the networking folder, and select option delete.) I just restarted from here and the icon re appeared in bottom right the menu bar, I just clicked on it to set it up with my wifi signal and it did the rest itself."

Aspire 3680-2682 just too slow

To stop the machine shutting down,
Go to Microsoft and install updates,
Service packs etc...
Then run a scan to check for viruses.
This should stop the shutdowns ( if there is no damage to system already ) this should resolve that problem,
Wireless is abit slower ( that's just wireless )
Wired is better, if this is possible.
Slowness issue....
Run...Disk-cleanup, Defragmenter, ( from start, accessories, system tools )
Run CHKDSK.exe from a command promt, this is start, run box, type CMD, in the black screen command prompt, type CHKDSK.exe, this will check system files are good,( for the shut down issue too )
Delete any applications you do not use or are old. in Program's & feature / all programmes.
( in start, control panel, all programmes /features.
Scroll...check for outdated programmes, un-install them..
Increase the performance now.
Go to start, control panel, system, advanced system properties, advanced tab, performance tab, performance settings,under visual effects, adjust for best prformance.tick this box. ( better speed )

Increase the page file size too...
start, contol panel, system, system properties, advanced tab, under virtual memory, click change, click custom size, (( in the 2 white boxes put the recommended page file size ))
((look at the bottom it says total page file size for all drives-RECOMMENDED its the middle value ))
Put this figure in the 2 white boxes, click set, and click ok to complete procedure.
(( you should get a dialog box saying, you must restart system for the page file and the performance switch over to be functional.
Have a shut down and re-boot.
If this is done correctly, this will improve performane for you.

Operating system & harddrive not found

Did you remember to enter the BIOS setup and change the boot drive so the system would look to the (optical) drive in which you have put your XP disk? In most cases, you must tell the system where to look for boot files and with a new hard drive, there are no files to find.

If you don't have any malware defense installed yet, and can again get it up and running enough to go on line, I would recommend all of the following:
- AVG Free Grisoft Home Page - Spybot S&D Spybot Home page - AdAware Lavasoft Home Page
Basic versions are either free or ask for donations.
