HI,
Try system restore first, before actually going down and removing everything from the computer.Sometimes it works wonders

How to do a system restore ?

1.Power on the system
2.Tap on the F8 key slowly 5-8 times before windows starts to load.
3.Select safe mode
4. Hit enter on the next screen
5. Login as adminstrator.
6. Click start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore
7. Select a date on the calander when the system was working fine
8. Computer would automatically restart


Thanks

Cannot set as desktop


If you are unable to change or display the wallpaper of your Windows 7 or Vista desktop, try this :
(1) Open Control Panel > Ease of Access Center > Make the computer easier to see.
viswalp.jpgEnsure that Remove background images (where available) is unchecked.
Save, Apply, Exit.
This should help !
(2) If it doesnt, try this:
Run regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
Then right click on Policies > New > KEY > name it as "ActiveDesktop".
Next in RHS, rt click > New > DWORD > name it as "NoChangingWallPaper" .
The DWORD value 1 will restrict change in desktop wallpaper. To allow change give it value as 0.
Reboot.
(3) If it still doesnt work, maybe your TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file has become corrupted.
Open explorer and type the following in the adress bar and hit Enter:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\
Here, rename TranscodedWallpaper.jpg to TranscodedWallpaper.old.
Next, double-click slideshow.ini file to open it with Notepad. Empty its contents. That is, select all the text and delete it. Save the changes. Close explorer windows.
Hope something helps!

Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.

This is a common problem with Acer. You need to press at the same time the two keys Alt and F10 when you see the Acer logo appearing.You might have to do it twice or thrice. You would be able to see the recovery management screen and then you could follow and restore the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How resstore my acer aspire to factory settings?


There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process. If there is not a disk,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

hope this helps,Goodluck..

Have you tried this:

1) Reboot your computer and Enter Setup.
2) Click on the tab labeled PC Health Status.
3) Find the feature labeled Chassis Intrusion Detect, and change the status to RESET
4) Press the Esc key to access the main menu and then use the arrow keys to choose Save & Exit from the menu.
Do NOT use the F10 key. If you use F10 key to Save & Exit, it does not properly reset this feature!!!!
If you wish to set the Chassis Intrusion Detect feature so it never generates a warning message at boot, follow these instructions
A) Reboot your computer a 2nd time and Enter Setup.
B) Click on the tab labeled PC Health Status again..
C) Find the feature labeled Chassis Intrusion Detect, and this time change the status to DISABLED
D) Press the Esc key to access the main menu and then use the arrow keys to choose Save & Exit from the menu.
Do NOT use the F10 key. If you use F10 key to Save & Exit, it does not properly reset this feature!!!!
