Acer Extensa 5620 HD and LCD screen problems

I just got a brand new Acer Extensa 5620.

Out of the box, the computer doesn't boot up. Its a computer set up for Vista, so I got a Vista install disc and it began the install process. 1st issue it hits is that when Vista needs to be pointed to a storage device for installation, the computer says no device drivers found for the HD. The HD, according to BIOS info screen is a Toshiba MK2035GSS-S1. I have found no solution from the Toshiba site or Acer site.

#2 issue is that the LCD screen intermittenly washes out colors into greens and reds and get hazy as though a double image is occuring on the screen. If I were to hit the machine softly...the screen fixes. Its acting as though something is loose, but I'm not sure how to trouble shoot this issue.

Am I doomed...or can this be fixed easily...hopefully by me?

Re: Acer Extensa 5620 HD and LCD screen problems

Unfortunately, the only way to repair the screen, is to send the computer back to acer. The prolem, is that the diode that controls one of the RGB Channels is broken, and since there are a million of these the size of a pin tip, it is extremely hard. As for the vista install problem, it could be a bad hard drive, try installing a new one, and if that doesn't work try finding the drivers it needs, and installing them somehow.

Hello, I have install W7 system on my ,,acer 5620" and then microphone has stop to work. What I should do. Thank you for unswer so much. Arvid.

Unfortunately, you are not alone - and it's something to do with Windows 7 not your microphone. My dual booted Acer Extensa 5620z has the same problem on the Windows 7 side of the dual boot. Webcam and mic work fine in Skype on the Vista side of the dual boot, but the mic doesn't work in the Windows 7 side. I teach computer classes for a very large computer club here in Florida, so I consulted with our techies - same problem with the Windows 7 laptop we have at the club - and no one seems to be able to figure it out.

A virus wiped out vista on my acer exetensa 5620 - I installed ubuntu so that I could use the laptop until I could fix the problem. Now I want to restore my computer to factory settings, but alt f8 or alt...

If you have already reinstalled with another OS then system recovery from the HDD wont help.

All you can do is call acer number, ask for the Recovery Disc, and it cost 22$ - 24$, including tax, shipping and recovery disc
