    Thankyou for your information. After several trys then leaving the machine unpluged & connecting again the Acer computer loaded correctly and so far the information I have accessed is OK. I also considered your suggestion before E mailing. Still not sure what & why caused the problem or how it resolved it's self.

Sounds like you need to use the recovery discs to load the software back on the drive if you made them,when the pc starts to boot up it should display a certain key for you to enter recovery,possibly F11 ,do that and follow the prompts,be aware though that this will wipe all your data off the drive & set it up as it was when first purchased,if infact it is still on the recovery partition.

good luck

    Good one, That's PC's for you.

    but i would back up all your data, just in case the drive is on its way out,as this problem can be a sign that it is .

    good luck with that.

I have a new Acer Aspire ONE D257-13464\r\nI have Windows 7 Starter on it.\r\nI am having problems with my projector and the Acer mini laptop. When I am doing a business presentation I can not use it in...


Hi!

The Presentation Mode feature is NOT included in windows 7 starter, but only in Professional or above editions. (Some reviews about Home Premium say it is included also in this edition but that's not the case).

Instead of presentation mode I use another software, it's a small program called Caffeine (what it does is best described by it's name: it keep the computer "awake", not entering screen saver or standby).

A download link for you is here:

Hope it helped,

Basically you can download Windows Vista in Microsoft web site, but you have to pay for the license.

The drivers for you computer can be downloaded to acer support website;

Acer also have program called Acer Recovery Media Purchase Program

if your machine is under warranty, i believe they sent you the recovery disc but you have to pay for the shipping

Reprogram my lap top


You can use the recovery disc or windows setup cd to restore the laptop to the original state and the problem will be gone.

if you don't have either.. the windows setup cd is not sold separately so I suggest you try to get one from a collegue or a friend, after installing windows again you will need to install drivers

you will find the drivers from
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html


anything else?

thats because Acer put their own screen saver on when building them, it's not part of windows.

I'm sure a google search will come up with an Acer screen saver

Resolution change on my lap top screen when I load my webcam


I had this problem on my PC and I tried everything from updating drivers to re installing the software and updating my graphics card but nothing seemed to work.
And then as a last resort I right clicked on the icon on my desktop and chose properties and clicked on the Compatability tab and unchecked on display settings Run in 640x480 screen resolution.
This worked and did not affect the webcam in anyway.
