Sounds like a bad driver has been installed. Try to use system restore by pressing F8 at startup and hopefully it will let you start PC in Safe Mode then choose system restore and set a date to b4 this happened...good luck from Scott

Acer m1640 factory restore


Format the drive, then install an operating system such as xp, or windows 7 .... it should install most of the correct drivers. You may have to go to the manufactures website to find the exact drivers for the video and sound cards., but that should pretty much return it to factory settings. If you are really picky and have the bucks, you can contact ACER for the original disks.

I need recovery cd download for acer aspire m1640


There aren't any restore disks because most Acer's have them built-into the hard drive.

Just press SHIFT + F10 when you start the computer.

That should put you into the Acer eRecovery Menu.

If that key combo doesn't work try:

F10
Alt + F10
Fn +F10
ctrl + F10

Let me know which one works, I always seem to forget.

Best of luck!
