Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire AST690 UD214A computer that has been rebuilt. I purchased it from computer geeks in California, and it just arrived this afternoon, (I live in NY state.) Upon powering up the computer which supposidly has windows vista, the bootup procedure gets hung up on a screen which states, The Computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error windows installation can not procede. To install windows, click ok to restart the computer, and then restart the installation. When I click ok,the computer tries to start and then brings me back to the same screen as above , I have tried starting in safe mode, and the computer still comes back to the above screen. Any help would make you a saint. THANK YOU.

Hi.
I think you should call the vendor and tell it about the problem and try to negotiate, because the following reasons:
1- Maybe the install process wasn't successful, you will never know.
2- The hard drive may be defective, and whatever data wrote in a damaged sector of it is now lost.
But it could got damaged during the trip or delivery.
3- Unknow reason( this happen often with Windows).

In any case, its likely you will have to reinstall Windows, (because its obvious that windows is corrupted) and hope the hard drive is ok.
One thing to keep in mind is that maybe the hardware is not Vista compatible( check that in your pc specs), before attempting to install windows vista.

i'm sorry i can't help you as i wish.
Good luck.

Can i run new ati radeon 512mb video memory with 5.0 shader card on acer ACER AST690-U-P925A


1) How much Ram Memory do you have installed? If I have the spec's right, your motherboard's maximum amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
(PC2-5300 would be best, but the amount is what matters, not the 'speed')

2) What is the Maximum Wattage for your Power Supply?
Takes power for each hardware component in the computer.
Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, Optical Drive/s, Graphics Card, etc.

When purchasing a graphics card, this is one of the minimum system requirements you need to know.

Spec's I looked up indicate a 300 Watt power supply.
This is the problem. That, and power supply's Acer uses are low quality.

If you had at least a 400 Watt power supply, you could use this,

Slap that game around, and make it bark.

You could also run this if you had the above Power Supply,

[Note*
No. It does not matter if you are using DDR2 Sdram ram memory, and the graphics card has GDDR5 graphics memory.
A graphics card runs independent of the system resources.
(Processor and Ram Memory ]

The desktop will not boot up. It's got power and sounds okay but


If you are able to get windows up you can restore it in a earlier time when it was working perfectly, this is if you have the 'restore point' on your pc. Other option if to use 'Last know good configuration'

The Last Known Good Configuration feature is a recovery option that you can use to start your computer by using the most recent settings that worked. The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores registry information and driver settings that were in effect the last time the computer started successfully.

To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer.
  2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.c697747.gif

Does anyone know if i need a restore disk for my Acer Aspire AST690 UP926A, or is it built in to my desktop. If so, which F key do i hit? I tried the F8, F10 F11, basically all of them, and none give the...


Usually F1, F10 or F12 are the right ones to hit when your computer starts to get the RESTORE DISC function. You will have to be able to hit the key several time when the computer starts so that it accepts the key press. IF you have a partition that has the restore disc on it, I would restore your computer to its original configuration and then I would mirror your discs onto dvd's or cd's for safe keeping. If your harddrive goes out, you will have nothing to restore your computer with then. When you find the correct F key it may also have the option to make your own restore discs. I would do this as soon as possible.

If you look at the back of you computer tower you should see 4 screws, one at each corner. Unscrew those one side at a time and that should allow you to examine the inside of your computer. Be careful when poking around because static electricity may short something out.
