Not sure what happened ,lost parts of my os for vista home premium 64 bit ,no sound, not even beepcodes,no text when atempting restore ,limited control in command promt, still have some stuff ,pictures...


Which do you have - Vista Home Premium or Vista Home Basic? The title of this question category and what you said you have doesn't match. I'll assume you had Home Premium 64 Bit. Yes you can upgrade to Windows 7, 64 Bit. Please be aware that there is the 64 Bit and the 32 Bit versions. Check with your OEM of the computer before you upgrade. In the upgrade process, Windows 7 will create a folder called "windows.old" once the install has completed. There you will find the data you had from the old operating system like pictures and documents. Before you do the upgrade, I recommend downloading and installing the Windows 7 Advisor to check on any software and hardware issues - the advisor will list those problems before you can upgrade so that you can make the corrections.

CD DVD not detected at start up


Check to see if it is showing up in the hardware section of device manager. Click on Start - Control Panel - System - and in the left hand pane you should see Device Manager. If the CD/DVD player is showing up there then the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows may not. This could be due to incorrect or lost drivers. I would suggest going to Acer's website and downloading the most current drivers and also if there is a bios upgrade do that as well. That should correct the issue.

I had to reinstall Windows Vista. When I did so my computer lost a significant amount of volume output from both the speakers and the headphones. I have tried increasing the decibel output on the mp3 files...


The format shouldn't have made a difference with the system volume? Try to Reboot PC, and when windows appear, hit F8 key constantly until you here a beep. You are now in the Repair/safe mode/system restore. This is where you need to perform the system restore. This should work..

Error -need to re-install the operating system


Insert your Windows Vista Basic CD into the CD ROM drive and restart your computer.

It will autoboot from the CD and you can reinstall Vista Basic.

Should you have further problems don't hesitate to give more details.

Unable to completely restart windows vista home b


If this is a name brand system, you would need to use either the restore CD/DVD that came with the computer or the restore partition on the hard drive that can usually be accessed by hitting something like F12 (depends on your computer). It sounds like you already reinstalled so the restore partition is out of the question. If you don't have the restore CD/DVD, you may be able to order it from your computer manufacturer. Other than that, you will need the installation disks/files to restore everything.
