Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I own an acer aspire 5610-4179 laptop. When I turn it on, it wants to go into disc checking saying the file that needs to be checked is C and that it is FAT32 (whatever that means). Then it boots up but soon shuts off with a windows has suffered a serious error box. Sometimes I can open some frames but never get very far because it shuts off but then immediately tries to boot up again. can you help me fix this without losing my data?

Acer aspire T180 UB72... looking to bring data D disc into use as data is almost full..need help to do so!


Hi,

Acer Aspire computer has a recovery partition so called D drive. I am sorry to say that you will not be able to access this drive.
But you can try this, open D drive and go to My Documents or Documents and then try to save any file. Hope this should take care of the issue

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

This Acer Aspire 5920 was given to me as a gift from a family member, there are many things installed on this system. Basically, i guess i want to go through the add/remove programs to see which i need and...


You could try google each item, it will tell you what it is.
Just do not remove system drivers / dislay and audio drivers.
You can remove most acer software, acer is one of the worst for installing un needed rubbish.
If you are not too short on space, it may be wise to leave well alone till you learn a little more about what you use.
You could also do a factory reset if you have the disc, or you may have the files needed on the hard drive. Check in start / programs / accessories / system tools, look for recovery options

Error message that says boot disc error. there is


This is either a corrupt file system or a bad hard drive. You'll need to boot from a Rescue CD like BartPE or a Windows CD and run chkdsk on the drive to see if the file system has just become corrupt. If that fails, you may need to run "fixboot" and "fixmbr" from the recovery console. If those fail, or if chkdsk comes back and says it can't repair the damage, then you probably need a new hard drive.

Need SATA HDD password for acer aspire 5100


When everything gets done loading the screen says:

Unknown Disc
<There is no disk in this drive.>

it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list

Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
Technical Information
STOP: 0x00000050
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000

I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error

What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.

From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again

im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated

My Acer T180-EA381B desktop won't burn dvd's over


The DVD Drive iteself may be bad. After installing/reinstalling the drivers, there are only two things left to check and that is if the driver was installed correctly (device manager- check to see if there is a "?" mark next to the DVD drive) or you can buy another drive and install. A new drive should take cae of your issue.

I have an Acer netbook the when I sign in windows signs on then it says the file system on c needs to be checked )FAT 32) . It says the disc needs to be checked for consistency . The # is Vol S.#...


sounds like the operating system is unstable, many pc's do this drive check when the system has an error shutting down properly tpp. will it allow entry into safe mode at all (hit f8 when you start repeatedly) i repaired a pc with this error a while ago and the only fix was checking system settings for that pc and then if failing that a reinstall of operating system. Windows has an option to only reinstall and repair the windows files so you lose no work or files. Thios is really nifty id virus and spyware are not involved.

Acer Aspire 5920 problem


Your best play is to restore the machine to the factory settings. To do this, power up the machine and immediately press ALT+F10. From there you will enter Acer eRecovery Management which will give you the option of returning the machine to the factory settings.

WARNING:
This will erase everything you had stored on the machine!! ie data files, pictures etc...

Aspire one does not have a CD/DVDROM however you can use another computer to be able to setup your router. You can probably ask a friend to use his/her laptop that has a CD/DVD ROM. After setting up the router, you can connect your Acer Aspire by letting it detect the wireless signal and connecting to your router wirelessly.

**You can also try to insert the installer disc on another PC and copy all the contents of the CD/DVD installer of the Netgear into a USB flash Drive. Plug the USB flash Drive into your Acer then run the setup file inside and follow the instructions.
