if you start the system from either the restore disk that came with your system, or if you have the restore partition, press F10 as you are booting up and that will launch the setup in the restore partition, Select complete restore, this will reformat your drive and restore the system to Factory default.
If your computer beeps when you turn it on you have a problem with your power supply, system board, graphics/video card or keyboard. Reboot your system with out the keyboard if it no longer beeps your problem is a couple of stuck keys on the keyboard. If the beeping continues remove your graphics card and reboot your system. If your pc still beeps the it is either your power supply or the system board.
If it is new and only a few weeks old, take it back to where you purchased it from as if you want the restore cd's from Acer, they will charge you $20 or $40 plus shipping.
I hope this helps.
Hey there besafe, the problem of your video driver is easily solved. If your computer is new, then you may have the driver CD for the motherboard installation. Alternately you can download the driver from the motherboard manufacturers website, assuming the video is onboard. If it is an installed video card, and you are without the driver disk, you can usually get the specific driver from the manufacturers of the video card website, specific to your OS. These drivers are easy to install therefore the best first step. If that does not work, then look at the hardware. If you have a video card installed, reboot your computer and enable the onboard video. If this works, then your video card may need replacing, preferrably with something having a higher built in memory and more suited to your usage. Hope it helps. Good Luck!
Why don't you go to the acer web page anmd go to the download page and type the name of your computer and download audio driver and save on to your HD and install(normaly you should get Realtek SOund Manager)
