This is the problem that all "pre-made" laptops, desktops have. Is that when the day comes you need to reload everything you can't b/c you never "owned" the OS to begin with. You will have to go out to the store and purchase vista with a cd and start from there.

Or you can call up the manufacture of your laptop and maybe they could hook you up with a reload cd but I doubt it.

If you still have the recovery discs, just insert that, and reboot the computer. Make sure it's set to boot from cd first in bios.

If not, then you can try ALT+F10 or CTRL+F10 during the initial boot cycle - this will prompt the laptop to access the recovery partition on the hard drive.

You do not have to reinstall the OS. You can uninstall Norton if that is posing problems. To do the go to Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs and select Norton. Remove from the laptop. But, do not remove anything that is related to Acer. Then your laptop will go phut.

Installer for my laptop empowering technology for acer 5910G


Acer (all acers) have a back up installer.... It is a retoration program that often came on a CD or DVD but the latter models have it stored on the hard drive. You should check to see if there is an option called MAKE BACK-UP CD's OF YOUR ACER ( something like that) then you can make a full set of CD's or DVD's (usually about 4 DVD's) before you uninstall anything

I turn my laptop on and it starts to boot up but thats as far as it gets. Can you help please? its an Acer aspire 5051


I will assume it has xp installed, get hold of a xp cd, XP Home or Xp Pro, which ever is installed on your laptop and perform a repqir install. Boot from cd run through setup but after pressing F8 to accept EULA choose to repair windows and use same directory, most programs will continue to work , any docs and system/user profiles will remain intack.

Error Tab


Turn off the, or better yet uninstall, the Acer Screensaver. Something you installed, possibly a screensaver program? has corrupted the Acer screensaver causing that error message. That add-on screensaver is notoriously buggy anyway.
