Do you have or did you make the recovery installation optical media [dvd or cds]. If you have the option to make the recovery media - you should do it now - as you may need to reformat the hard drive.

All I can suggest here is that you flash the bios to the one designed for Windows XP

The cooling fan in my Acer Aspire laptop (bought 1 year ago) stopped working. Can it be replaced or is it part of the motherboard?


As stated it can be replaced. Might be the pits in finding the replacement fan, though.

Let's take a look at an Acer Aspire 5520 series laptop, as an example,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-acer-aspire-5520-laptop/

Scroll down until you come to the third photo.

Getting to the Cooling Fan in the Acer Aspire 5050 series Notebook PC's, requires a lot more disassembly, however.

The Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook PC, in the category heading, is part of the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's.

This is the Service Manual for the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go to the second Aspire heading.
The one that begins with Aspire 1200.

Now go down to the 5th line, and scroll across to > 5050.
Left-click on 5050.

This is a PDF file.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

[ Although I would recommend upgrading to Adobe Reader 9, if it isn't on your computer ]

After you click on the file > 5050, you won't see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.

Most of the time the first page pops up within 10 seconds, and it requires additional time to fully download the file.

Suggest you let the file download all the way, before looking through it.
Watch the Download Progress bar.

You can save this file to your computer.
This way you can burn a copy to CD for safekeeping, and easy access anytime you wish.

You can also delete from your computer then, to save Harddrive space.
If you do not know how, and wish to, simply post in a Comment.

For further questions on this please post in a Comment.

Audio problem on acer aspire one zg5 A150


Try installing the audio drivers again, this might resolve your problem unless you have a physical problem in your speaker.
Visit the following link and download the sound drivers again on your system. This would resolve your issue http://download.cnet.com/Realtek-AC-97-Audio-Driver-XP-W2K-W98-WDM-driver-VER-5-10-0-5554-zip/3000-2110_4-210198.html

I just put XP Pro on my Acer aspire 5050 and I downloaded all the drivers and my wireless internet will not work.


If You downloaded the correct wifi drivers and still didn't get wireless...
Choose a different series... Try acer aspire 3000 wifidrivers... then Acer Aspire 5000 wifi drivers, if still no luck... Choose the acer ferrari 3000 wifi driver.. or the acer travelmate 5530 wifi driver/..

I've had alot of Acer Aspire models.. including yours... and I too would have to jump around to different models to get all correct drivers,...

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.

Problem in linux installation


Hi, I also have an acer aspire 5050 (AMD 64bit CPU).
It came preinstalled with Vista Home Basic which I decided to get rid of. I downloaded a copy of SUSE 10 Enterprise Desktop (5 CD iso's images from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/x86_64/10.0/iso/ )and burn't them to CD, and installed it straigt off CD.
It installed fine with Gnome (havent tried KDE). There are certain problems that you need to tweak before it all works ok.

The 5 in 1 card reader wont work at all, but I have heard that it might in future kernel upgrades. 

The sound doesn't work untill you edit a file (follow the guide at http://nosrednaekim.wordpress.com/2007/05/28/linux-on-the-acer-aspire-5050/) after doing this and rebooting it works great.

The graphics was another issue, I have an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. I couldn't get 3d accelleration to work for ages, but have managed to now. First off you have to download the ati driver for the "Mobility Radion X300" for linux (x86_64 for 64bit CPU) from http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html. When downloaded just run it in a terminal ("sh ./ati*%$%*%$*%"). Then after rebooting (the tricky part for non linux geeks!) open a terminal, "su" to root and run "init 3" then log in as root and run "aticonfig --initial -f" when complete run "aticonfig --app=maya --fsaa=on --fs=4 --ovt=opengl" then when complete run "aticonfig --effective=now" then "init 5". Now log on and you can enable 3d in display properties (in control center). The 3d desktop is so much better than Vista could ever be. I have only just got my graphics card working and I havent messed about with all the settings yet so you can probably get it working alot faster with some tweaking.

If you're interested in porgramming or compiling programs for your OS you will need to "build your Kernel" this takes a bit of time but a good guide is at http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_suse i skipped page one and some other bits)

Hope this helps, and you enjoy linux.
