Loading Excel and Word

I recently added Excel and Word to my Aspire 5520. When I pull up Excel the program is there and working. I literally only typed my name and saved the file. When I go back into excel and try and pull up that file- it sits there with a message saying "running virus scan." Eventually it says that the program has a serious error. I cannot download any excel worksheets into it nor can I create new files.

Re: Loading Excel and Word

What version of Excel/Word are you installing. Vista doesn't like the older versions.

Hello my acer aspire 5520 won't load up Internet explorer keeps saying Internet explorer has stopped working a problem caused the program to stop working correctly !any ideas how to sort this please?

Assuming windows XP Pro:
Go to control panel, internet Options, go through and set all settings to default, delete cookies and cache.

The workaround for now is to install latest Firefox browser.

I have 5520-5912 acer aspire

Kindly let me know if you recently did this and saved nothing of much worth to your c drive after that. 1. Just go to add remove programs and uninstall any program for your web cam.
2. let the acer auto PnP search for the best driver on restart or else if you have CD then install it from the CD. If this does not works then follow the last resort.
just restart your pc and continue hitting F8 once you get the choices option select boot through last good known....

Keyboard broken on my Acer Aspire 5520

For the Acer Aspire 5520 I'm working on, (Acer Aspire 5520-5156, mode nol: ICW50)

Remove the three black screws under the battery, not the silver screws.

VERY carefuly pry off the power button cover. It will make 'snapping' sounds and if you where gentle nothing will be broken.

The keyboard has no screws holding it and can be slid toward the screen and very gently pryed out, taking care not to tear the ribbon cable, as mentioned before.

When the keyboard is out the cable can be released by gently pulling the cable lock on the header toward the cable, the thin (black in this case, it's usualy a different color than the white connector) plastic part of the connector I just use my fingernails, one index finger on each end slowly pulling till it releases.
Pull the cable out using the pull tab. You can just pull the flat cable out with the pull tab without releasing the calbe lock but you stil need to release the cable lock to properly put in the new cable, then push the cable lock back tight to the connector.
