Question about Acer Aspire 5720 6497 Laptop

1 Answer

I recently left my laptop on, but forgot to plug in and the laptop shutdown. On turning the acer aspire 5720 back on it won't start windows vista, the screen remains black. I have tried system repair and it has run at least 4 times now to no effect. I have tried system restore, but this only goes back a couple of days and comes up with the error "the disk acer (c:) has errors, I run the check disk for errors and this completes and indicates errors fixed, but still it comes up with the error and won't system restore! I don't want to loose my data, so did not want to go for full pc restore, please can someone help?

What i would do is go in safe mode and u do that by when u first start computer puss f8 key back up the data and sad to say reinstall will be needed if u cant get the data out that way u will have to 1 take that hard drive out and conect it to anther computer or take it to a computer shop and have then take the data off.
our hard drive maybe going out but could just be bad sectors and with a full restore that will fix it

I bought Acer aspire 5738 recently i want to know wheather it will accept XP OS?please give me the clarification


yes it definitly will since you recently bought it,all operating systems will be supported by your laptop that were launched after 1998,so if you just bought a computer it definitly will have windows vista,if it has windows vista it will support windows xp,cauz vista is just a higher user interface than xp,in laymans terms it just needs a higher amount of ram and a higher processor,any old p3 or higher can run xp

Hi i have an acer aspire 5720 but the login screen won't come on


Hi.
The Acer Aspire 7520 is a very poorly desiged laptop i also have one which is broken atm.

The best thing you could do is to Refomat and install a fresh copy of windows

You shoud have two recovery disk that you should have burned as soon as you got the laptop.

Put Disk 1/2 into the drive.
Boot up your computer and press ATL+F10 atleast three times.
-Follow the on-scree
n instructions and soon you will be asked to put in the disk 2/2.

At the final phase you will be asked to put in disk 1/2 again...Wait awhile untill everything is install and finished loading and your computer will restart with Facory Defualt Settings.

Please Rate. Thanks
