    Ran the compatibility wizard first before even trying the upgrade. Remove any software it might have trouble with according to the report. Upgrade ran and failed on last step.

You need to run the 'Windows 7 upgrade advisor' from Microsoft.
This will run all your components and programs against the requirements of Windows 7, whether it be W7 Basic or W7 Business.
Once completed it will list any problems you may face when installing or upgrading to Windows 7.
Here's the link to the Upgrade Advisor.

My computer "freezes up" have Windows Vista


Vista isn't very good. Upgrading to 7 will probably fix it, but you could just use another browser. Instead of using Internet Explorer, download Mozilla Firefox for Windows Vista and try it. Seems to work a little better. Make SURE you periodically remove junk from your hard drive and defragment it, or this will happen too.

Hello how do i restore my acer aspire 5332 laptop to factory settings


Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

Upgrading to Windows 7 from Vista with disks supplied by ACER


Try downloading CCleaner, which is free utility that will clean out all your temp files and also scan your registry for issues.

When a program is uninstalled, such as Kaspersky anti-virus, not all registry components are cleared out.

This is particularly the case if the program was a 30 day trial.

The registry retains details of the original installation to prevent consecutive 30 day trials.

CCleaner should clean it out. Run the Registry Issues component until it reports no issues found and then try your install again.

Can Extensa 4620 be upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7


Yes, you can upgrade to Microsoft Windows 7 from Vista but Acer doesn't release any driver for  Windows 7 for your Notebook.

You will be able to run Windows 7 and you will be able to install drivers which are meant for Windows Vista in Windows 7.Some of the drivers might not work mainly bluetooth or webcam.

For that, you can download "Driver genius pro" and let it update automatically from the chipset manufacturer site.

Here is the download link for "Driver Genius Pro"
http://hotfile.com/dl/9305335/2e7a110/29Genius.rar.html

Here is the link from where you can download the Vista service pack 1 driver for your Notebook.

That's it.

Where to find Acer Aspire 4715z driver for Windows 7?


Acer aspire 4715z does support Microsoft windows 7 but Acer doesn't release any driver till date. so, it's almost impossible to get the driver for windows 7.

but there's a way to work out.

just download the driver for windows vista using the link below

http://www.acer.com.au/acer/service.do;jsessionid=4CABD6FF9BC3961EF92EA7451A95FC04.public_a_14c?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3112&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=92&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3112&CountryISOCtxParam=AU&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=3559666452

Follow this step
Select Product Family : Notebook
Select Product Line     : Aspire
Select Product Model  : Aspire 4715z

All the driver will be listed below, by default the driver listed is for microsoft windows vista Home premium.

Download all the drivers that you need.

Now, install those driver meant for windows Vista in windows 7, Most of them or all of them will work as 90% of the driver meant for windows vista works fine with windows 7.

Now, make sure you have internet  access through a LAN or wireless network.

Download "Driver genius pro" using the link below

http://rapidshare.com/files/270454654/Driver.Genius.Pro.9.0.0.180_by.tano1221.rar.html

Install the software and let it update.
This software has a huge database of drivers and I'm very sure you will get the latest drivers for the operating system i.e windows 7 in your case from the chipset manufacturer sites directly through this software.


It will most probably solve the drivers problem.

hmm..sounds like maybe there's a compatibility issue. do you have the original vista installation disks. Do that, first, restore operation, then go to www.microsoft.com for step by step instructions on upgrades. And you may wish to back up hard drive first too.

I need a serial number from a acer notebook running windows vista premium/home premium. Mine is a 751h and runs basic, so they won't ship me the free upgrade. However, there are videos all over the...


The free upgrade is sent out by the laptops manf. directly to you as long as you bought the laptop in the past 4 months. It is regardless of the current version of Windows Vista that you are running. According to an article found here

"Acer says "shipments will begin in increments. All orders will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis." So if you bought a computer last week, you could be at the end of a long line."

Best you can do at the moment is just wait, your not going to be able to do much till Acer ships out that upgrade. Even if you did install Windows Vista Premium, you would be stuck till you got the Windows 7 from the manf.

you could try going to the boot menu, and choosing 'last known good', but that is probably not going to work.

you should be able to run a repair off the CD....

the file is a kernel, a neccessary file used by Windows. It may have gotten corrupted or deleted.. possibly by a virus or bad hard drive sector.

get a disc, and run repair, if that doesn't fix it, you may need to re-install a fresh copy of windows, which will over-write all your data. you may be able to boot to that upgrade CD and that may have a repair option...

good luck.
