How to install a new harddrive in an acer 23" all-in-one?


If you replace the HDD you will have to do a reinstall of Windows or clone the drive. If you have the Factory Revovery DVD's then you can reinstall to Original Factory Condition. All you data will be lost. If you clone the drive, it will be as it was when you removed it. That said, is there a problem with the HDD? Why are you replacing It? The HDD hardware replace is the easy part.

Im having problem with my Acer PC aspire M1641. it always hang out or stop. i dont know why. pls help me with this problem. my work is very affected. ty


Well at 1st look it looks like you have a problem with your antivirus and spyware programs. 1. Install RevoUninstaller and uninstall all unneeded applications: http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html 2. Install a decent Anti virus, here is one free and good enough: http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download 3. Then instal and scan your computer for mallware: http://www.malwarebytes.org/
If all of this doesn't help you, you must reinstall your OS.
Best regards

Virus notice keeps popping up and unable to open any programs. i have had downloaded McAfee anitivirus and cannot get it to open


You require Norton AntiVirus from a disc as a clean boot will be required due to the virus "hiding" in the RAM.

I want to take my acer aspire back to the factory setting but dont have a cd how do i do it


Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc,  pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.

My Acer X1200 has a virus, I can't access Windows


Step One.

If your computer is still on, attempt the three finger salute to restart your computer, that is ctl, alt, delete at the same time, which will pop up a window showing you the running programs. Then go into safe mode to access your anti virus program and save info, or just re-install your software system if there is nothing you need to save.

Or:
A hard shut down can also be done.

Boot into your system in safe mode after that.

If none of that works give more detail as to what is going on.

Would like to set it back tofactory settings


start up the computer and in the bio's there should be an option to press a key like F9 or something to open the repair console...from this menu choose re-set to factory settings...there should be a backup partition on acer hard drives to restore it back...

if this dosn't work bang in an OS cd - boot it up from the bios and follow the on screen instructions - drivers that are not installed will be avalible from acer's website - they are quite good for downloading them

Dont have recovery disks and have virus...actually just missing disk 2


If the popup you're getting is from something like "MS Antispyware 2009" or similar, that's the same trouble I've seen on several other computers. Download a removal tool called ComboFix. You can find information on how to use it and links to download it here. This is a handy tool even if the virus you have is different as it will fix a number of virus and trojan problems. ComboFix can be run in safe mode if your computer can't start all the way into Windows. Turn your computer on, and when you see the Gateway logo screen press the F8 key. This will give you a startup menu screen from which you can pick starting in safe mode. This prevents Windows from loading everything except the minimum stuff it needs to start. Run ComboFix and let it repair the troubles it finds.

Lost files due to pop up virus


If this virus really deletes the files its really hard to recover it. But if the virus just hide your files. You can still recover it. Just unhide all hide files then look for your files if it is still there. If you can make a copy do it. You can also do this way. Type the filename you need on the search bar and use look also for hidden files option.

If you can make a copy do it. Then test it on a different computer with a good known updated antivirus installed. If your needed files will be deleted by that antivirus, if not then that solves your problem. Your other files to be follow.

Hope this helps you.

For the pop up virus deal with it, try to use Avira free antivirus.

Also what is youre operating system? If this doesn't help you we can device another solution
