Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

I'm gonna kill it!!!

Hi,

Bought my wife an Acer Aspire 3680 Vista Home Basic Blah Blah Blah.

Same problem as everyone else. This seems to be quite common. I know it's not seeing the hard drive but I don't really want to buy another is there a way around this. I have tried reseating the hard drive several times but it's not making any difference. I have not reseated the memory modual as you suggested though.

If you have a solution I would be evry grateful. I was thinking of oputting the drive in my PS3 and seeing if that see's it and if so reformatting it but then I lose my Vista and i'll have to put on my not so real copy of Win XP Pro (which lets face it is better than Shitsta)

Please mail me @ scott.holder@btinternet.com

I thank you in adavnce.

Scott Holder

I have a problem to activate my windows vista home basic. Since 2007 I bought this device, that now it esk me this. Help serie number: LXAZL0Y043714033532500 Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop/Notebook 80GB? Vista...


Have you activated this before? If so a recent update might have caused this. So you can contact them or can check their site / remove the update. If its a pirate version you have installed genuine software using the internet or have reset the timer. (Since its installed in year 2007). So you have to either purchase a key + activate the key or stop the activation timer using a third party software (not recommended since its piracy). If you update the system (not in a genuine copy) it would cause similar problems. Thanks

Need Vista Home Basic


Usually the operating system is on a separate partition especially for reinstallation when things go pearshape.

Some models used the SHIFT 0 when booting up to get to the windows installation. If you have deleted ALL partitions and reformatted then you have a real problem. Call DELL if you have not deleted partitions and find the specific s]sequence of accessing the partition for your model.
