Windows Home XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, and changing to that OS will not resolve your issues. Did this PC have a warranty? Your problem is best addressed by returning it to the seller for replacement or to their qualified and certified service technicians. This issue does not sound like an OS based problem, but may be a software related problem. Contact Acer and describe these symptoms to them and see what their solution is. If you purchased this from a reputable retail outlet they should have no problem getting you a replacement. If you bought this from some eBay seller or from Amazon as a used product you need to deal with them. Do not wait or delay taking care of this - your time and money are at stake here.

I did some checking and found that ACER no longer supports the model - it was new in 2010 and they are not making it anymore. So, you have no warranty to rely on unless the seller warranted it at the time of sale. This is one reason not to buy used computers - you never know if they are old until you do some research and you don't know if when new the particular model series had a raft of problems reported or if they were relatively trouble free. You should return this turkey and spend a little more for a decent new laptop - many are available for $300.00 now days and will have some sort of warrantee coverage. You may have gotten this machine for a low price, but if you have to shell out hundreds to get it to work it is not a good deal. Return it with a report of the problems and whomever sold this to you should refund your money. I have been in the PC business for more than 20 years and I have seen this kind of thing before. People get taken advantage of in this kind of deal all the time and it should be a ***** crime. Your story is unfortunately sad but all to common. Please get your money back if you can and buy a new machine - that way if there is a problem with it you will not be left vulnerable to the cheats in this business. I really hate this kind of thing, and I am truly sorry it happened to you.

I use MS Money 2001. I bought a new PC and is changing from MS Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro. I would like my ms money 2001 to continue working on new PC but I can't find the original disc to copy on...

Hi pjhmulder
Assuming MS Money 2001 and 2003 are compatible with W 7 , you could install MS Money 2003 on the new computer and copy the files from MS Money 2001 on the old computer to MS Money 2003 on the new computer . Make sure you don't erase the MS Money 2001 files before transfer has successfully been executed .
Best regards ,

When i turned on this hp pavillion dv4 the control center shows up and doesnt let me exit do i fix it ?

Go to the start button and click on the run box, type in msconfig and hit enter. When the windown pops up, click on "selective startup". Click on the startup tab at the top of the windown, this will list all programs and services that automatically start when windows boots. The only things here that you absolutely need to startup with windows is your wireless configuration, virus and malware protection, and touchpad software to enable tapping and scrolling and changing settings....most of the other programs you do not need to aytomatically start, they can be started when you need them and then you just click on their shortcuts. Go through these [rograms and see if there is anything listed as control center....if not look on the control center window and see if the is a small box in the left lower corner that needs to be checked in order for the windown to not sho up on the next boot. Either way, you can get rid of it in msconfig. Hit apply and ok and restart.

Jumping cursor while using editor programs under windows xp

Does this happen with a text editor (notepad, word etc) or with on-line pages?

What OS are you using (XP, Vista, Win7)?

If it's a laptop, are you sure you're not hitting the touch-pad by accident?

Click OK and try the program again.

Just a suggestion, but it MIGHT work. Work a try,

Hot sync with vista

I have Vista Home Premium and I hotsync my peg-n760c using Palm Desktop. It came with version 4.1, but it was a disaster. The Cd is old and isn't compatible with Vista. So I downloaded an upgrade from and I definitely don't use the Jukebox software that came with it either. Go to and download PalmDesktop Win62.exe and install it. It should recognize your USB connection and hotsync immediately. Also, use Windows Media Player and change the files to mp3 by using a free program called Switch. Just google Switch and download the basic program. Then load the mp3 files onto your memory stick in Windows Explorer. Then use MSimport to load the memory stick files into your handheld. Good luck!
