Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Acer aspire 5610z. A few months ago I was using it and everything was working fine. One night after shutting it down it just stopped loading all together. When it powers on it goes directly to a black screen that says: A DISK READ ERROR HAS OCCURED PRESS CTRL+ALT+DELETE TO RESTART This just does the same thing. I have tried to run a system restore to factory settings, it gets about half way through then a blue screen comes up with an error message that says windows has failed and must be shut down to prevent damage to the computer or something to that effect. I have tried to get into BIOS to access safe mode and see if that works, but It asks for a SETUP PASSWORD which I never set and I have no idea what it is. The computer did not come with a copy of windows to reinstall and it literally wont do anything at all. It goes from the windows screen to the black screen almost immediately. I am totally out of knowledge for this problem. Is there anything that can be done or should I just pitch it?

You have a hard drive problem. You can try booting using your disk and running chkdsk. If it runs finds errors let it fix them then try doing a system restore. If chkdsk will not run or cannot find the drive it is most likely bad. It can be replaced and is worth the cost rather then buying a new pc. If you need detailed instructions post back

We have a new Acer Aspire one and the mouse is frozen. When I try to turn off the unit nothing happens. How do I free the unit or turn off everything?


As this was posted a month ago, I'm presuming you've solved the problem?
However, when your laptop locks up completely, the mouse won't move and the keyboard is unresponsive (press the caps lock key and see if the caps lock LED comes on or off?)
Press and HOLD the power button for a few seconds until the laptop powers off, Wait a few seconds and then power it on again, the computer may moan that it wasn't shut down correctly, but this is normal (because you couldn't shut down correctly)

Acer Aspire 5610Z. Upgraded to Win 7. Screen resolution changes


Hello,

Your laptop was not designed to run windows 7 or be compatible with it. It may run fine with windows 7 but issues might come up sooner or later like the one you're experiencing.

[EXPERIMENTAL]
Download both of these (as I don't know which one of thsese two your laptop needs). Keep mind that doing the following could render your system inoperable and use at own risk. When downloaded, extract ZIP , open desired folder and find SETUP or INSTALL program. Right click and choose properties, then navigate to compatibility mode, then select windows Vista from the menu. Then apply changes, ok and close window and attempt to start.

Acer 6930 wireless adapter failure conflict


Most Acers use a form of Intel IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. Like me you've fallen foul of thinking that keeping your computer up to date using Automated Windows Update will keep everything in good order when in fact it can generate more problems than it solves
