Why does aspire desktop ad keep appearing

Is it possible that you have the Acer screen saver on and need to adjust it !! Or did you buy this as ex display model from a store and it has not been properly wiped, check with store if so, but otherwise it is not an advert, just a screen saver extolling the virtues of your unit.

My tablet keep on restarting. cannot go into the settings because it automatically restarts

You'll need to do a factory reset:
1. With the device off, press and hold Volume Up and Power.
2. Release the Power button when you see the logo, but continue to hold Volume Up until the recovery screen appears.
3. Use the Volume buttons to navigate the menu and select wipe data / factory reset. Press Home to choose the selection.
4. Press Volume Up continue.

This will reset you device to factory settings, however anything on your SD card will still remain.
At this point you will need to start fresh as if you just bought the device -- register with your email address, etc.

Hi ash! I have this nokia n95 vodafone with an 8gb phne memory. whenever i try to put or move files into the phne memory, it wont and instead it displays that disk is full although i havent put any files...

If the phone indicates "memory full,delete some data" and you say that there are no more file stored on your phone memory,transfering data even on mass or internal memory which is 8g would not be possible because the phone needs a minimum requirement free space to perform any operation such as taking picture,playing music etc.

All your have to do is reset or format your phone using this two methods.
(Before doing this,make sure all important data is backep-up cause everything will be deleted

1. on your home screen,just type *#7370# ,a message pop up "Restore all original phone settings? Phone will restart" then press Yes, it will ask for the lock code. Enter your desired lock code if any,otherwise the default code is 12345 and the phone will restart.your phone is now on default settings. DONE.

2. Another ways is by going to Menu > Tools > Settings > General > and locate Factory settings, once you open that option, a message also pop up to restore your phone settings and ask for a lock code as what method 1 did.

Now if its all ready,start and enjoy your phone features.

If there's any problem, just reply and i will get back to you as i received the comment.

Hope this method helps you.. Thank you for visiting FixYa.

Hi there,

When you installed the software, the first thing you should see on the monitor is the change in the resolution,contrast,hue etc and it should ask you if you agree or not.
The software comes with a manual and the manual should tell you what PC (windows Xp, 7, vista etc) is compatible for it.

Hi, I would contact the store and ask them what they set their password to. Without a restore or windows disk you won't be able to reset it to factory condition or reformat and reinstall windows. They should be able to give you the password and from there you can get in and change the password etc.
Thank you,

No, it is not caused by settings. Probably CCD sensor is bad. !!! Check if there is possibility of free of charge repair !!! Many models are repaired free with CCD broken, even warranty time is passed.

I want to reboot my laptop to the windows XP, im using Dell XPS M1330 with Vista home premium

Reboot? You mean restart? Click Start, click the arrow beside the Lock button and choose Restart. It's the same.

If you mean System Recovery (wiping out everything but the OS and making the PC new), then there must be a software like Recovery Manager. Search Start Menu.

As it is a Dell, you must have a recovery partition on the drive. It will be just as new.

Or use the set of CDs that you created when it was new, or one which you got with the PC. If you didn't get and you didn't even make it, ask Dell to send a set for your model.

If nothing works, then use a Vista installation disk that you can buy in a retail store. Note that you won't get the pre-installed software that you got from Dell when you removed the PC from the box.
