Acer's are not the world's greatest computers, and are prone to problems. i would test this in another computer and see if it works. if it doesnt then you probably have the disk scratched or damaged, and can buff it out somewhere like Game Crazy. if it works, then your Acer Netbook probably is messed up and you should take it to the repair shop you go to.

Cpu meter runs high but nothing is running in task manager

There are a lot of services running in the background, and possibly a virus or multiple viruses and spyware in the background. without any program runing, you should not have any CPU activity over 3%

When connected to the internet, my screan flashes quite fast and ita s puple colour! it doesnt do it on any other programme, just when im connected to the internet!

WHat programs are running at that time? Please check using task manager. There must be a program that activates itself when internet is accessible and then present the abnormal behaviour. Suggest closing programs (end process from task manager) one by one while the screen flashes in order to determine the culprit.

Graphic problem

Too many things are running in the background. Before you start your game, load the Task Manager. Under processes turn off your virus protection, other programs like Sype, Logmein, Adobe, Itunes, Picassa, Google, etc. Then try your game.

The ACER tour program wont go away & covers the screen no matter what!

Press CTRL+ALT+Delete.

If you're using Windows Vista this will bring you to a new prompt screen asking you what you wish to do. Select 'Task Manager'.
You will be returned to the Desktop and the Task Manager will open up on the screen.

Click on the 'Processes' tab on the window, and search through the list until you find something along the lines of... AcerTour.exe

Click on this process to highlight it, and press the 'End Process'
button. (This should immediately close the running process)
