Acer Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The drive mechanism is going bad and needs a replacement. Rather than going through the cost of replacement, I suggest you go to Walmart Electronics section and get an Exterior USB DVD drive for about $20-30 dollars. Any easy fix.

The VGA section of the Monitor is totally separate circuit than that used by the DVI circuit. Either or will do an automatic switch to what ever circuit communicates via the proper attachment (VG or DVI cable). AS long as the VGA Drivers are up-to-date the operating system should recognize the Video signal. Check the DEVICES and look for Video. Your Monitor should show up if the connection is proper, and if not there, you may have a bad Video Cord.

Try this:

Start the computer. As soon as the "Starting Windows" screen comes up (not the Acer screen), hold down the Power Button to shut off the computer. This might force the computer to go in to Windows recovery mode when you restart. Now, turn on the computer, and it should go to a "Windows Diagnostics and Recovery" page. Choose Diagnose the Problem or whatever it says, follow the instructions.

Good luck.

You must have the HP install CD. If not, then go online to get it. It will allow the network to recognize the printer and assign it an IP address. There really is no other "viable" workaround. Manual workaround is too complex to explain here

If you have Win10, that is a known problem, and the solution is too lengthy for this reply. If it is not that OS, then 99% of the time, those reboots are caused by the memory module(s). One or the other, depending on what you have there.

Holding down the power button as you did, is only helpful in clearing CMOS. This does not seem to be your issue. The battery itself is the most likely culprit, power cord or not- it will not work without a good battery. Start with that as your troubleshooting procedure.

Why are you restoring? What happened that required a restore? That may be the clue as to why you are having difficulties. Can you elaborate in a second question as to why the restore was necessary? The hard drive sounds like the culprit- and if so, there are many remedies, all very cost efficient. Hope this helps

Disconnect the monitor from the computer, unplug and then replug it in. See if the entire screen lights, if only for a second. That will tell you whether it is the monitor itself that is bad, or the signal it gets from the computer. If the former, there is not much you can do but check the settings manually on the side or back of the monitor. If it is the latter, check the cable (s) and the plug connection. Check all pins on the connector. Do not know from your question, whether this is a vga, dvi or hdmi connection to computer. Good luck

Your system will never start without a battery, so forget about that. it sounds like the battery may not be fully seated. Remove and reset the battery. Also, check for the connection pins- make sure none are bent or damaged. Good luck.

You do not indicate which OS you have. If it is Win 10- that is the problem. If it is another version, memory is usually, but not always the culprit. Was it dropped by any chance- that might loosen connections.

You're showing a wired connection on your network adapter, yet claim that you are connected wirelessly. The firewall has no bearing on this- put it back on (windows firewall, that is). Here is what you should do. Remove your wireless adapter from your computer and shut the computer down. Restart your modem, and after it reboots, then reboot your router. After those two have rebooted, restart your computer, making sure to use another USB port for your wireless adapter- so that it has to be recognized (again) by windows. Let me know how this plays out. Thanks..
