My Acer Aspire 4715Z freezes and go back to normal every 2-3 seconds all the time.


Try and reload the Operating System... usually Windows from the CD-ROM. If you do not have a CD-ROM that came with the laptop, you will need to contact Acer to buy a recovery CD for your product. Insert the recovery CD and follow the instructions to reinstall the operating system. Then go to Windows Update to update it. This will take while so leave the computer plugged in and 'ON". This should correct your problem. If you do not have a good anti-virus program, get one. Worms and viruses can destroy a computer's Boot Up directory forcing the PC to struggle to boot up normally. I use Norton 360 myself. While you are at it, get an external hard drive to store your files (back up your data) to secure your data outside the system. You can always get another computer, but you might not be able to retrieve your data from your old PC without some experience and knowledge.

How do you reboot a mini laptop to a factory default in whats the right cd do you need to download something if it ask u to download stuff.


To reboot your mini laptop to factory default you need to re-install your OS (Operating System).
To do this you need your Windows xp, vista, or Windows 7 disc, and make sure you have your product key. Ie. Product Key: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (Most product keys are on the bottom of the laptop, and are 25 Characters).
Put the disc in your laptop and restart your computer. Boot from CD, and follow the prompts. It will ask you if you want to format your partition (Erase all your data including virus's) and format it. Then it will install your OS, and you will have factory default setting's and programs.

Hope this helps and if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask me! Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

My acer t180 won't start up in normal mode i have just intalled the new norton onto it i have 1gb of ram but it starts in safemode....do i need more ram.....?


1. You may have to go into "safe mode" 1st and then start you pc in normal mode.
2. if you have a virus you may not be able to recover with the Norton anti virus.
3. There is a free software that you can try called "Ccleaner" this may restore you to the boot screen. A google search will find the site.
4. You may have to "format" the drive and reinstall your Operating System.
I hope this helps.

My computer caught a virus


Yes this is an unfortunate virus that has attacked your system at this time. you can clear all partitions and reinstall the entire operating system. this will bring back the OS but, you will lose all info that was stored in the partitioned drives. You can do this by inserting the xp or vista disk then, restart the system and before the dell bios flash gos away, hit f4 then, choose boot disk. this will start the reinstallation of the OS again.

I purchased an emachines T5244 desktop in January 2007 and I have been having some major issues that require an operating system disc for this computer to restore istallation of windows, will you please...


If Windows is purchased separetly;
Call Microsoft and get order a Disk for approx. $10
If shipped with the computer; Call eMachines and check if they can send you a back up disk.
If you have your product key, you can also lend a CD from your friends or family and use your product key while installing.
