It's the webcam driver that's causing the problem. Try uninstalling it. The default windows driver will be used instead.

I have a acer laptop 5738z i have a problem that sometime my laptop start and freeze on blinking of underscore in very beginning to start the laptop plz help me out its urgent


I need a bit more info.
Is this a Linux or Windows machine and what version?
Have you recently updated the computer BIOS or system drivers? I recommend the latest manufacturer BIOS patch on acer.com.
New to this? Have a tech friend 'flash' the BIOS or go to a shop. Download all the BIOS stuff for them, save them some work and it should be inexpensive.
Have you recently changed Windows in any way?
Has the computer been dropped?
Did you install XP on a Linux computer? This has known issues.

My Acer Aspire 5920 touch pad keeps crashing! I dropped the laptop earlier this year, damaging the hdd so had to install a new hdd. OS and all drivers were reinstalled on new hdd with little problem except...


A good step to try would be to flash the bios..

Not knowing if you have vista or xp, i cant provide a link for the proper bios..

but i can give you a link to the acer site, where you can enter the information directly on the support page for the aspire 5920 to download the correct bos.

I need to use windows server 2003 R64 bit as the operating system on the laptop


Hi there.
Sorry but Windows server 2003 relies on XP drivers, your laptop only supports Vista so the drivers will not work.
You can however test Server 2008 which will take Vista drivers, download and test it here >>>>>>

Acer Aspire 5920 realtek sound driver

Select your operating system
Check your OS by right clicking on my computer and go to properties
It should be up the top e.g. Microsoft XP Professional
You might be selecting Vista 32 instead of 64

Hope this helped you out
