Oh, I've had this issue before. You may have your resolution set too high or your installation program has selected the wrong driver for your display. Your going to have to go into display settings and change your display to the correct one.

My acer travelmate 5320 does not pick up that i have a disc in. How do i fix it?


Do You have any bootable(like Operating CD, Linux Live CD etc) CD or DVD... You can try booting from CD or DVD.to boot from CD you need to restart computer enter to your BIOS an dchange your first boot device to CD or DVD.
If those CD or DVD are booting then there is no problem with your Drive, it can be becuase of windows.
now if still you have same problem then try to get one DVD Lance cleaner and try cleaning your Drive's Lance.

My acer laptop display problem, so please how to correct the problem?


First find out if the problem is hardware or software: boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com/  If in there the screen is ok then it's a software problem. Boot again in Windows and uninstall the video driver. If after you have rebooted the image is again bad then the problem is in Windows itself, the best solution is to save all your data and reinstall.

I think I have a bad hard drive on my Acer model #BL50. I can't get past the acer logo screen. Help! What do I do?


If you have a Windows disk, put it in the CD and see if you can boot from that. You didn't say what operating system you have, but you should be able to boot from a CD/DVD if the system is working properly.
Once you boot it, you'll need to get to the command prompt (varies according to your operating system) and see if you can see drive C:
You should also, on startup, press the key that puts you into setup (normally F2). You can then look at the system devices and see if it reports that there is a hard drive. If it fails the tests, above, then your hard drive is probably bad.

When checking this, I always see if I can get to the drive by booting from a CD/DVD first.

Hi there , My Acer Veriton has no sound card and no facility for one as far as I can see. Is it possible to use a USB external type. And if so how would that work? Rudy, from Australia


USB sound cards work quite well, will your PC support USB2? I have never seen a pc without a sound card? No PCI slots?

USB sound cards have their own internal workings not needed by the PC so it should work just fine. Now if they could just make a USB video driver card :)

Mother Board CD for ACER Travelmate 240


Unfortunately the Travelmate doesn't come with any other way to format the computer to factory settings. However you do have 2 options. The first is to contact Acer who still provide OS discs for your laptop (They will charge you $49.95 including shipping). The second is to use a free Operating System such as Linux. I recommend Ubuntu www.ubuntu.org as it is very easy to use, has a great community support group and you can try by using a Live CD before formatting.

Ophcrack boot


try downloading it again or burning it slower, it may have caused an error. also, try getting it from a different site. also try the not live cd version and just run it.(if that is an option)if you are completely locked out of windows and have a mobile hard drive, try using a linux live cd(try puppy linux, it can be installed to usb flashdrives and have the session saved onto the cd) and install then run the linux version of the not live cd. it SHOULD work. but i haven't tried it. hope that helps. cheers!
