Hi, I'll try to keep this info short but it can hard to write succinctly :) I have an Acer Aspire 1644WLMi that I got approximately 2 and a half years ago now. Last October it stopped working properly very suddenly after a trip to the internet cafe. I've done numerous virus checks with AVG free on it and spybot so I'm pretty confident it isn't that. What happened was that I was using photoshop (relatively system consumptive on a 1 gig ram machine) and it told me I had run out of memory and shut the program down. My tocuhpad started running extemely slowly like a stop motion film and my keyboard likewise. When I tried to shut down explorer stopped responding and I couldn't get the input to work to end it. Sometimes though when I tried to reboot it would work perfectly, it was very inconsistent. It also seemed like it was very busy doing something when it had already gone through all the normal things at boot up. When I looked at what it was doing it would seem to pick one or 2 things to use all the CPU capactiy up on, like a screensaver that wasn't even running or the teatimer part of spybot. I put the laptop back to factory settings and everything was going fine, even after about 3 reboots. Then it started doing exactly the same thng again when I tried to turn it on last night. I'm really not sure what's up with it. Also when I use an external usb mouse the mouse works fine. Hope that wasn't hopelessly longwinded and I hope someone has some advice, thanks for taking the time to read!

It doesn't look like the operating system has been installed properly. If you paid someone to do this, you need to go back and ask them to install the operating system again.
If you replaced it, then you need to re-install the operating system. With luck you would have been supplied and O/S disk with your laptop. If not, then the O/S recovery software was stored on a partition on your old hard drive and is now lost.
You'll have to buy or borrow a copy of windows, you'll need a code of authority to go with it or you can download a version on linux for free. I'd go for Ubuntu. Just google it.
Good question: i have a very simple program that can help you go to the Belarc.com website and download the Free Personal Belarc Advisor system information software. It will tell you all the serial numbers on your computer and software, plus a lot of other info about your acer. It gathers the info and presents it as an easy-to-read webpage. you can print out the report and keep it for reference. If this was helpful please give it 4 thumbs up to help others
The battery is either friend, or the hard drive is the one that's fried. Call or email acer, they have a great warranty on their products. They should be able to send you a new one, though you'll have to ship yours back.
As for your info, if it is your battery try taking you laptop into a battery shop and if replacing the battery works then back up your info.
If it's your hard drive, there's not much we can do, sorry.
That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.
You can turn on your wifi with Fn+F1 or Fn +F2 . Some times wireless netork adapter drivers need reinstallation . ALso mke sure your wireless channel type in router is 3 or 6 or 11 because those are best for wireless. Let me know if you need furhter assistance. Thanks for using Fixya.
You have to reinstall your operating system. There is no other option. Bcoz every time the operating system try to operate hardware it receive wrong info from the hardware drivers. Contact me again for more info
