    problem solved, had the power supply tested, pin 5 not working, changed power supply, started it up, got post beeps, but hung on "verifying dmi data pool", removed heatsink and processor, cleaned the old thermal compound off, replaced processor, a dab of thermal compound, replaced heatsink and clamps, plugged the fan in, powered up, got into bios, changed settings, rebooted, windows started, problem solved...



    i have talked to many friends that don't know the importance of thermal compound, don't run a processor without it, not even for a second. thanks all......

How do I disable onboard video for Acer M1641? There seems to be no option to do so in the bios and I cannot get a display on the new video card. Computer does post normal.


You say the computer posts normal--is the video card being recognized within Device Manager? Try installing by adding a new device, then everything should be fine. Also make sure that your monitor is plugged into the card :) . Try different connections to monitor if available.

Acer aspire one, won't wake up from sleep mode, screen blank


I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to have to turn off my computer EVERY time it does this. (I have not been able to shut down the laptop normally because it goes into sleep every time.) I've heard that after 3 hours it builds up an eletrical charge and you have to take the battery out, but I havn't had it on for 3 hours at a time.

Acer aspire 5600awlmi going slow


Assuming stock LT go to start run and type msconfig and click ok. On the general tab select Diagnostic Startup and click ok, it will ask to reboot and seleck ok. After the reboot see if it is operating normally.

If it is working normally then some application is causing the problem. You can selectivly choose to launch one app at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Most likely is antivirus set too agressivley or spyware. Might consider a tool like spybot to clean the system.

Acer Aspire 3680 In a Loop


What I wanted you to clarify was the message that you noted as "something to the effect of 'Beginning of physical damage'", but you only saw it the one time I see on rereading the post, so never mind.

Have you tried doing a factory restore using the recovery media? Try pressing Alt + F10 on booting to get to eRecovery Management.
