    What is the problem? What do you mean by "wiped"? Did they tell you to format the drive? Is it an acer Extensa? I need to have these basic facts before I can help you.

    It sounds like you reinstalled Windows with Acer. For us to help, we need details of the problem.

    Model system?
    What version of Windows (XP, Vista?)
    Does the system boot to Windows at all?
    Please give us as much detail as possible and we'll give you as much assistance as we can.

    Did they tell you to wipe it using the Acer restore disks? Does it go in to Windows? Are there any error messages? More details would be an enormous help. Thanks, Scott :)

Have you reloaded your laptop's operating system, as well as all drivers for other parts of your computer, like Wireless and CD/DVD driver? Did the computer actually have a virus? Viruses best removed with antivirus software before wiping the entire Hard Drive. Let me know if this is not helpful ...

Acer aspire 3610 graphic or battery problem?

It sounds like your backlight is damaged. On some units this can be replaced on its own. On others, it requires the entire LCD to be replaced. I'll see if I can find out which this is, in your case, and find you a part number.

New Acer Aspire laptop 5560-7402 beeping and flickering

If it's new, return it A.S.A.P. for repair/replace, Unless it's been damaged or theated harshly, their is no reason for it to be giving you trouble in a month. If the AC jack is pulled, yanked, tugged...etc. it could damage the inside connections of the AC jack.

Screen will not come on

If your screen is taking that long to turn it is a hardware issue with the screen and I would suggest contacting the manufacturer and try having them repair it at 18 months it still may be under warranty.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,

My notebook (aspire one D150-1Br) was infected with viruses

If your system is less than 6 month old or under warranty, then please contact Acer support they will sent you the copy of acer recovery management, try visiting this URL

there are options to clear the virus from your computer without formating. Do you get any software download request, or Do you have any virus name available?

Resetting my acer aspire 3680

It is best to wipe it clean and start over again.
By this I mean format your hard disk and install Windows again, and install an anti-virus suite with firewall.
Check your ACER recovery and driver disk etc.
