OK, this can be due to a couple of error. But, i will start at the most basic problems, if this does not work, let me know so that we can troubleshoot this in a more advanced way.

OK, firstly, if you do not have a Virus protector, this might be a virus, if you do have one, make sure that it is scheduled to scan, and has the most updated virus definition.

Secondly, you will need to have a look if the computer might be overheating. I think this is the more probable problem. If you open up the unit, you will need to have a look at the fan on the CPU itself. If there is many dust particles visible, you will need to remove it, i usually use compressed air and blow the dust away.

If you have tried both of the above solutions, none of these worked, please be so kind to let me know.

Kind regards

    Yes I had Norton Antivirus on it which I installed not long ago and as for the overheating, well it did have a problem with this a while back but it doesnt happen much now so I know that that isnt the problem.
    Thankyou for the help so far, if you do have any more helpful information I would be more then grateful.

Will acer extensa 5230E reinstallation cds contain windows

A driver restore disk works with a windows disk to return your Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 back to the original factory setup.

Once windows has installed you put this disk into the drive as soon as windows gives you a found new hardware dialog box. Once inserted the Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 will automatically find all the drivers and also install most of the original factory software. BEWARE OF GENERIC DISKS !

Some of the drivers you would find on this Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk are listed below. Not all will be applicable to your system as this list is for information only for Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk.


Hope this helps

I have an acer extensa 5230e laptop and forgot my password cannot log on help

Boot up into safe mode (F8 at startup) and pick the 'administrator' login. By default there is no password for this, and that should get you in. Then you remove the password from the other account. :-)

I have a laptop acer extensa 5230E, and i want to reset default bios becose i forgot my password

What you could try is to carefully take off the keyboard and look for a little battery on the mainboard of the laptop. Carefully take it out and place it back in the right way.
Make sure that you don't leave stains or greasemarks on the battery.
With kind regards,
