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

I have an Acer Aspire 5920 When I reset to factory settings it always hangs and locks while installing its Acer programs (on 5 of 17 or something like that). There is nothing I have been able to do about...

The Acer Aspire 5920 is a fairly well known and reliable laptop ...

Restoring a Desktop/Laptop to its factory default is usually the last thing that you should be doing as it requires a bit of knowledge to correctly setup all the motherboard and peripherals again.

Installing a new OS does not require the Laptop to be reurned to factory settings!

To upgrade the Operating system, you first must have the Operating System Installation Media/DVD and you need to ensure that:
  • Your Laptop can support the target operating system and has enough resources (such as RAM)
  • You have ALL the correct drivers (such as Chipsets, Sound, Video, Ethernet, Wifi, Camera, etc...) for the desired OS (LINUX, XP, VISTA, W7, 32bits or 64Bits, etc..).
Upgrading an OS is not that difficult but is not a trivial exercise and you will need to understand a fair bit about your laptop before undertaking that task as you maybe required to answer 'hardware' drivers related questions such as CHIPSET series, SATA or IDE HDD, Model of Video Card, Model of Wifi Card.

Hope it helps.

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
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.

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 >>>>>>

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!
