Question about Acer Computers & Internet

Acer Launch Program in a perpetual loop. I need to use the Windows Task Manager to shut it down, otherwise that screen is always on top and I can't see the program windows behind. How do I turn it off or make it end w/o using the Task Manager each time?

I discovered that my Apire 5315 has a small green button in the top right corner of the keyboard which is used to launch the program. Apparently, my button is stuck on, so it constantly engages the program. Now I just need to figure out how to "unstick" the button - which looks more like a stickon logo than an actual button!

Launch start up repair


Im not sure if you are wanting to get to start-up repair or trying to get rid of it
If you want to access it, Boot system and do a hard nshut down. Restart, you will have the option to Launch start up repair or to start windows normally
If you are getting the option screen unwanted, this is primarily due to improper shutdown.
Whenever you shut down always try to use shutdown, restart options in taskbar.
If in the event you are stuck and need to do a hard shutdown try pressing Ctrl/Alt/del simultaneously
to access task manager.
Here you can end processes hung up or do a proper shutdown

When the Launch manager window displays on the screen, click OK. Now Press the 'e' button and it will launch the Acer Empowering Technology

My acer aspire 5740 with windows 7,freezes everytime i connect to the internet.pls help asap.


If your computer or laptop freezes on a regular basis, chances are it has acquired a virus or a series of viruses.

Press "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" when your computer is frozen. This will launch a Windows Security window.

Hit "Shut Down..click on the "up" arrow beside a red button located at the bottom-right corner of your screen. Select "Restart." Wait until Windows finishes the rebooting process.

Launch your web browser and install an antivirus program. AVG, Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky are all reputable makers of antivirus software and downloads

Restart your system after you have finished installing the antivirus program.

Launch the program and run a complete virus scan. Wait until your antivirus program completes the task and detects the virus infection. Follow its prompts to remove the virus.

Run virus scans at least twice a week. This will prevent your computer from getting another virus that causes problems such as the screen freezing.

CineDashMediaConsole.volume not working.


Cinedash FIX for Windows 7
This works to fix the CineDash Media Console!
I had the same problem with my Aspire 8920G
Now it works fine.
Getting the CineDash Media Console and Launch Buttons working
If you have problems with either the CineDash Media Console or Launch buttons then you will be happy to hear that the solution for fixing these is easy!
The first thing that you will need to do is install the “Launch Manager” which can be downloaded off the Acer website. Go to http://www.acer.com and click the service support, then driver download. Go to your model. Download the Launch Manager on the acer site. The filename should be “Kilimanjaro_v2.0.00_Vistax32×64_XPx32×64.zip” the version of Launch Manager under the Windows Vista operating system .This will get the Email, Web and Empowering Technology buttons working with their default settings. If you need to change what the buttons do, you can launch the application named “Launch Manager” in the start menu.
Uninstall any previous version of Launch Manager
The solution to my problem was to get the Launch Manager to run in compatibility mode for Windows Vista Service Pack 2.
Unzip. Explore the new folder and right-click Setup.exe.
To do this go to the Launch Manager Install directory (C:\Program Files\Launch Manager ), right-click on “setup.exe”, select the “troubleshoot compatibility” tab, check the “Troubleshoot program” check box and then click “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won’t install or run now”. Then select “Windows Vista Service Pack 2”. Then click “Start” program. Now everything should work properly! It will install. But don’t reboot yet!
Now locate and explore the freshly installed folder in your program files directory – (probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager or C:\Program Files\Launch Manager depending on if you are running 64-bit or 32-bit)
right-click on “LManager.exe”, select the “troubleshoot compatibility” tab, check the “Troubleshoot program” check box and then click “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won’t install or run now”. Then select “Windows Vista Service Pack 2”. Then click “Start” program. Now everything should work properly! It will install.
Reboot and enjoy properly synced volume, and fully functioning buttons.

When an application hangs like that, there are a couple of options you have to shut down the system. The safest is to open the task manager, if you have mouse control, by right clicking on the task bar and choosing task manager. In the menu bar across the top of the task manager you'll see an option to shut down the computer, which if chosen will probably prompt you to end the program that's hanging. There's also an applications tab, which will allow you to select the problem program and end the task, which will sometimes enable you to free up the system without shutting down. This option should be used judiciously, however, and only when you have already tried other conventional means to end a program from within the program app itself. If you can't access task manager from the taskbar, you can also press ctrl + alt + del at the same time, and the task manager windows should come up...
Finally, you have the option to perform a hard shutdown by holding the start button down until the system closes itself down. This should only be used in dire circumstances, when you've given the system a chance to finish whatever it's processing and other means aren't working. A shutdown like this doesn't give the system a chance to save its settings and you risk losing your work and otherwise confusing the workings of things, so it's best to save this for when all else fails.
Once you get the system to start normally, you can use the built-in windows event viewer to look at what warnings or errors were encountered when the system froze up, and try to diagnose the cause and correct the problem....
If there's a problem with file corruption, for example, this may be found and or corrected by running checkdisk on the system...etc.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

The ACER tour program wont go away & covers the screen no matter what!


Press CTRL+ALT+Delete.

If you're using Windows Vista this will bring you to a new prompt screen asking you what you wish to do. Select 'Task Manager'.
You will be returned to the Desktop and the Task Manager will open up on the screen.

Click on the 'Processes' tab on the window, and search through the list until you find something along the lines of... AcerTour.exe

Click on this process to highlight it, and press the 'End Process'
button. (This should immediately close the running process)
