Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

New Computer We had to buy a new computer. We purchased an Acer w/Windows Vista. Now we have 30 are so learning games we can no longer play. Am I loading them wrong or are we out of luck? Oh, we purchased at Best Buy and they loaded virus protection and stuff like that, but for some reason, we did not get ANY papers or instruction manuals with the computer. There are things that came with it I don't even know what it is for. Like a remote control. Is there a reason I would need a remote control for a computer? Thanks for your help!

Acer desktop PC locked up and now won't turn off or boot up


Hello,

I've seen a similar issue on Acer Veriton 7900. When you unplug the power chord while the machine is still running the BIOS/CMOS gets bugged up. If your PC doesn't have a 3 year warranty you can clear the CMOS/BIOS. To do this, note the following...

1.) Unplug the power cord

2.) Remove the CMOS battery from the unit

[OPTIONAL] move the jumper on the mainboard to the 'clear position' It should be indicated on your mainboard.After 30 seconds move jumper back on original position

3.) Wait for 30 seconds

4.) Place CMOS battery back into its position

5.) Reconnect the power cord and attempt to power on the unit.

If you're trying to use windows vista in the same way you used previous operating systems
you may be out of luck because windows vista is a whole new critter.

my recomendation is give it time , learn more about aol compatability with windows vista

you can also turn off the security features in windows vista that pop up every time you try to do something.

I consider this a passive solution but none the less a step farther down the road for you're learning experience as a computer user.

If you visit their website specific to the games you have, there should be a compatibility list.

Sounds like it is not compatible but it's worth a check.

Mouse and Keyboard problem encountered in game


the problem is not with your mouse or keyboard but with your system itself. vista is very intensive in eating up your memory resources. try to disable some program like aero or other features of vista which will slow down your computer. how big is your memory both internal and video?

as far as you describe your problem, it can only be solved by upgrading your system and buying new accessories... truth be told... you may have to spend more than 30$ so that you wont have problems like what you're experiencing right now.

change the keyboard, buy a new videocard, buy a new memory, tweak your computer to optimum performance because you sure like "am a gaming person on my pc".

When setting up new computer, Windows Vista keeps asking for Product key number to secure computer. Will not accept this number that is on the new computer


maybe your vista license is for one computer only that's why will not accept the serial or product key you need to purchase another windows vista software with license
