If you have attached a device remove it and then start up pc but keep pressing F8 to get a menu up, choose safe mode, then you will see your desktop and an admin account.

Click on this then go to start, programmes,accessories, system tools then choose system restore, then choose a date before you installed the driver, then restart the system

HELP! Acer T180 is possessed!


Have you Googled the beep codes? This is most likely your solution. You should do the RAM test on your system.


Blue Screen Of Death


  • Remove all USB attached devices.
  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode). Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC. Opening case. Remove all RAM. Use static precautions!
  • Re-install Windows. Clean install works best. All data will be lost.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

I am looking for manuals for my new Acer Aspire AS5252-V917 so that I can figure out how I can do things, ie start using the laptop, attaching a mouse, usb devices. Something that tells me where to find...


Let me know exactly what you want to know on the laptop. I'm very experienced with laptops. For connecting a mouse, you would have to find one that has a USB. Most mouses like they can be found at newegg.com or tigerdirect.com ...

Do a recovery from boot up. Press F12 after you power up the unit. Should take you to a boot list. or read your manual and it will tell u what to press to get to recovery. Do a full system recovery.

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.

I have an acer aspire 6920 and my computer will not start up wen i start it it goes in to the start up repair and then tells me that i have recently attached a device to this computer like a camera or mp3...


it's a driver update possibly from windows that is corrupt, when it's booting up keep pressing F8 and then choose safe mode, when the system loads, choose the administrator account and then do a system restore in acceseries, system tools, and choose a date to before the problem started, then restart the pc for a normal boot up.
