Question about Acer Aspire M3100 Refurbished Desktop PC - AMD Athlon X2 5600+ 2.8GHz, 3GB DDR2, 500 SATA, DVDRW, Fl

1 Answer

I have got a really big problem with my computer atm, and was thinking of asking here before just throwing it out the window. Since about 2 weeks back the computer have been slow to start up. When I pressed the start button it started to start up as usual, making "startup-noises"(from the harddrive among other things I guess) and doing it's business for a while before it gave up. It would just stop making those noises with just the start button lit up and the fans running. If you pressed the on/off button on the switch the computer was connected to for about 5-10 minutes it would do the above but instead of just giving up it would make a distinct "beep" and start up normally. I would however always get to a screen I had to press F1 to get past tho. Other then that it would function normally as soon as that distinct beep came on. Only that about 3 days ago my **** to dad pulled the entire switch to the computer as he was to tired to turn it off as you should. The computer still does the same procedure as above, only that it doesn't take 5-10 minutes of pressing the on/off button, it takes 5-7 hours Any ideas whatsoever what could be wrong? (The computer is an ACER Aspire M3100)

What can i do if the weatpac atm did not give me my cash by took the money from my account


hi, i have had this occur before, if you contact westpack asap they will audit the atm ( usually takes a few days) if it happened in a store its worth talking to the store manager and ensuring the cctv is saved that shows you using the atm and not taking any money ( just encase west pack give you grief)

there is one down side that it will take a few days to resolve they wont credit it back or provide and instant resolution till they audit the atm, also if your not a westpac customer then let you bank know as well but its the bank that owns the atm that will audit it,

here is there atm security team number


Call 1800 022 022 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) for any ATM enquiries and service difficulties.

I asked about the Emission light coming on in the 2002 Honda Accord, and what to do about it


2 choices:
1. Get in the zone, ask the autozoner to check your engine codes for free. Blindly buy some miracle in a can and a hundred or so dollars of parts to throw at the problem. If you re lucky, the light will go out. Hopefully the durolast parts wont cause you new problems.

2. Take the car to a reputable shop for diagnosis. 100 dollars will go a long way on an easy repair. If you have big problems, the mechanics will let you know what you really need to get your car running right again.

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
