Its an issue with the screen resolution....try changing the resolution setings by right clicking on desktop & go to personalize & then change the display settings.....set the resolution according to the width of your laptop.....for e.g if its a 15inch laptop, thn the screen resolution should be 1024x768....try changing the options for the best view....

Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

I have a HP Pavilion DV9400Z CTO, Model: GD574AV laptop sing Jun2 2007. Originally came with Vista, I have reformatted twice since then, recently did install Windows 7 Ultimate, worked well for a month....


Hi,

Since the laptop worked without any problems for a month after installing Windows 7, chances of a hardware problem are less.

From the description of the problem it seems that there is some malware/spyware infection or the Windows installation is damaged.

1) Kiindly download and perform a complete scan with a virus/malware removal tool.

You can download the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

After download and installing the program, kindly update and perform a full scan with the program.

2) If the problem persists, you will have to re-install the OS.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

How to reformat the hard disk of laptop w/o recovery dics?


Reformatting will wipe the drive clean and you will need to reinstall windows, either from the rescue CD or from other media. You may be able to contact Acer and order a replacement CD and install it using the OEM license originally sold with your machine.

If it is merely a problem that programs are not running correctly or that something has corrupted the computer, see if there is a good restore point that you can use from "System Restore." This may allow you to fix the problem and remove the offending program without having to go through the trouble of reformatting and finding the replacement disk.

Finally, since you say that it is Vista, it should be a relatively new machine and it may have a restore partition instead of a rescue disk. If this is the case, there should be a utility in your programs from acer that will allow you to restore the computer to its original form. This will typically reboot the computer and handle the format / reinstall for you. It's possible your friend can't find the disk because he didn't have one.

Just a heads up, typically you can not use a rescue disk from another machine (different make or model) as it will check the hardware configuration before installing the software to make sure it matches the machine the disk shipped with. It is not serial number specific though.

Hope this helps!

Booting problem.


hello, its possible that your partition is really defective or a software that you have installed has corrupted your windows os.  reformatting might solve your problem. If you really dont want to format because you have important files.  Try the following
1. Do not repair your OS. Install the windows Operationg System to another partition or harddisk.  By this way if you have succesfully installed the OS, you can now backup your files from your original partition. and then you can reformat the orginal partition.
2. you can also try a Bootable Operating System from a USB flash drive or Download a LIVE Linux Os so that you can backup your file, then you can reformat
3. you can try softwares that repair you partition, there are numerous softwares that offer to fix your partition. but it comes with a price.

My acer 5612 WLMI keeps crashing randomly


reformat your system.. always partition your hdd into 2 parts,, the os on one partition and your files on another,, so that anytime your system is in trouble,, you can reformat it without worries...
there must have been a virus in your system or there was something wrong in the installation of your os..
if this doesn't work,, maybe it is a serious hardware problem...
