Don't worry about your Data its absolutly safe.......just do one thing format your system using any bootable Operating System C.D. it will be for Motherboard You have to reinstall all the Drivers in the System.......if you don't have Drivers C.D. then you can downloaded it from Acer Site by using your Product Code.........

    Yes you can reinstall windows xp by boot your system from c.d. drive and your data is absolutely safe so don't be feel fear at all and you don't have to pay anything for that. You can do it very easily. But remember after installing Windows XP you have to reinstall all the Motherboard Driver that you can download from Acer Website by using your Product Key No. or Service Tag No. that should be printed or stickered at your Laptop Lower Surface and make a c.d. of that Drivers like Audio, Video, Bios, System Security etc.

Hi i have a xps m1530 that was brought in December of 2007. The frist year no problems but after the warranty expired the battery go's out now i can'nt connect to the internet. Called my internet services...

Check that the wifi and bluetooth signs are on in the little bit near the power button. If they are try going to Start-->Network and try setting it up there. Make sure you are turning your computer off each time, if you hibernate it, on my XPS, it doesnt let me connect.
Hope that helps!

Laptop won't power up after installing microsoft office 2007

No, that has nothing to do with the software.
Try the simple things first. Plug it in and slightly turn the plug left and right. Then slightly push the plug to the left side and then to the right side.
If nothing happens, check the voltage of your PSU.
Once you have done all these things, there are a few more checks and tests, but not diy orientated.
It does involve opening the laptop.

System failure of toshiba satellite a215-s7422

Put the laptop back together, its possible youve damaged one of the boards, and the "coin sounds" you hear are jsut beeps from the motherboard indication some form of system failure. call toshiba and see if you have any warranty coverage, and out of curiosity what did you drop on it? something heavy i presume?

Office 2007

You need to purchase the product key from microsoft. The software that came on your computer was likely a trial version. The only way to obtain the key is by purchasing it.

Not recognizing new memory

Take them back out and re-seat them and try again. THe "Retailer" can very well be wrong. You may also need to tell the bios you upgraded, however that is highly unlikely. THe computer may not be able to handle 1gb of ram also, but thats unlikely also. I say it may all lead down to a bad stick of memory you bought from your "retailer"
