Acer 5735 Windows 7 Upgrade Problem

Q: Acer 5735 Windows 7 Upgrade Problem

Hi. Please help me! I have an Acer Aspire 5735 and recently took delivery of the update disks from the Acer upgrade offer. I placed disk 1 in the drive and followed the setup only to find that the 5735 wasn't listed. A friend told me to carry on with disk 2 which I did. This installed Windows 7 on my laptop but now I keep getting a message to complete the installation by running disk 1 again. Obviously I can't do this because the 5735 isn't listed. Windows seems to have installed fine but does seem a little slow on start-up and my desktop icons take far too long to load up! I've tried the Acer site which is no use and a number of forums. Unfortunately I am not getting anywhere but rather than take a trip to PC World I thought I would try and get help here.

My questions are:

How do I get rid of the message?
Has Windows installed properly?
Is there something else I need to do?

I was running Vista Home Premium before and the upgrade is 7 home premium.

It's my first post so go easy, as you may have guessed, I'm no computer wiz!

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Acer 5735 Windows 7 Upgrade Problem

busterace, welcome to the forums
Can you give more details as to what the installation disk 1 shows? Can't you select another model, possibly another close to yours? I suspect the only difference will be on drivers or maybe bloatware that will load, since Windows 7 is not dependent on the computer model.

I had a problem with my Aspire 5735 LCD screen and i was needed to change it. Just bought a LED screen not LCD screen and i used a ccfl converter to be able to connect with motherboard. I assambled very carefully and powered up. Worked very good for about 4 restarts and after that my laptop didn't powered up anymore.

Question: Does the ccfl to led converter interact in motherboard like.. burning something inside?

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advice with the day-to-day running of my laptop, now nicknamed the Craptop.

It is quite a dated model now, Acer Aspire 5735, running Windows Vista Home Basic SP2. It used to be pretty speedy when it came to YouTube videos and other media, but it is now pretty awful, with videos constantly stop-starting and jumping.

The whole system seems to run a whole lot slower than it used to, what sort of things should I be trying/looking for?

Any help appreciated

Hey all, I'm in desperate need of some help.

I want to record vocals onto my laptop, and went out and bought a JTS NX-7s mic the other day from a well known music shop, local to me. The guy was really nice, and suggested that the above-mentioned mic was most suitable. I'm a complete novice to be fair, and he kept everything simple for me, because techy talk does not sink in...Infact, thinking about it, he didn't really say much and he was quite old!

However, even though the mic is all plugged into the right jack, I'm finding that it isn't registering on the audio recording options. Its only the Realtek mic that is available to use, but even when this disabled it's still the only mic available for me to choose. Does anyone know how I am able to "install" my JTS NX-7s onto my computer, or how I can find it to start using it...or should I take it back to the shop?

No instructions or anything came with the mic so I've even emailed JTS :-/

Please bear in mind that I am female, and of a "blonde" nature - please exclude words that may interfere with the smooth running of my mind...I'd really appreciate that!

Cheers

(No offence to blondes! May I add...)

I recieved this laptop for my birthday on the 28th May, and has been running absolutley fine until about half an hour ago.
I turned it on and it wouldn't go past the "Acer" start up screen, so I turned it off manually and tried it again. Still the same problem and all the keys do nothing when I press them.

I've tried to look up solutions on the web but the only one says to re-install Vista with a disc, and mine came pre-installed with Vista and NO installation disc.

I'm unsure if this is a Vista problem or an Acer problem, so sorry if its in the wrong board.

Any help on how to fix this?

A:acer aspire 5735-hard drive swap

If I understand you correctly I think you mean you want to be able to swap between 2 hard drives on your laptop, please correct me if I'm wrong

In answer to your question, yes you can do this without damaging the operating system on your HDDs but be sure to remove them when the machine is powered down.

I have had experience with replacing HDDs on various laptops including Acers and just wanted to give you the heads up that it can be more difficult than you think to get into the HDD bay; especially if you have to remove the whole plastic case to get to it.

However why do you not simply buy a cheap USB 2.5" caddy and put your smaller drive in there, then boot from it via USB? It would not require you to open up the laptop every time and would in most case be more convenient for both sharing files and quick OS changes. The only downside is that your drive may not have the performance of it's internal counterpart but that shouldn't be too noticeable in most cases.

I am trying to connect it to a Sharp Aquos LCD TV LC42XD1E which in the user manual states to connect to a PC use a RGB cable and 3.5 mm stereo minijack cable.

Whereas the PC manual states you need to connect via the VGA port which looks similar but does not have the screw in bits, am I still making sense?

Is it possible to connect these two together?

Hello, tonight I decided to upgrade my windows vista on my Acer Aspire M3800 to Windows 7 with the upgrade disc.

Everything was going fine until around the end of the second disc namely step 21 on the E machines supportpage - eMachines Support - Upgrade Installation from Windows Vista to Windows 7

Since that part takes a few hours I was not watching my computer. About 2 hours after it had begun I came back to my computer and there was an error on the screen. Not thinking I clicked ok and the computer instantly restarted.

As it rebooted I noticed it was now a windows 7 opening page and login screen. However once I got to the account log-in screen I realized I couldnt log in with my admin account and password or any other account for that matter. Looking at E machines support page I also realized my computer was no longer following the correct steps either.

I honestly have no clue where to proceed from this I have tried a safe mode boot and it only took me to the account login page which I cant login from because none of my accounts work.

Any help or support would be appreciated

My system is roughly 5 months old. I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to 7 home premium. There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to deep hibernation. The only way to wake it was to unplug the power from the tower. I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers, to finally reinstalling everything. No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer. I just got it back from Acer's repair depot. They had to replace the motherboard, hard drive, and fans on the system. They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue. I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold, the hibernation thing started again! It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory. Now it seems stable running Vista. I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell. Is it me or is Acer systems flakey?

Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows 7 without having to format every week? I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly. Sometimes it won't even turn on. Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows 7?

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

I have tried twice to upgrade 1st time with a 512 card and secondly with two different 512 cards (samsung 512mb 2Rx16 pc2 4200s-444-12-A3) on first atempt computer worked for a few days with unmatced pair ie original 256 and new 512 card. The laptop started playing up and I actually associated it with a virus, so did a clean reboot. This didnt solve the problem and the laptop then stopped completely, only solution was to remove new memory and fit the old which recovered the laptop whilst still slow.

second attemp the laptop ran with both new cards for 3 hours perfectly, then a blue screen appeared with info of which I could only read the top line basically stating that the operating system was closing down to protect the computer. It rebooted and did a scan disk finding numerous bad files and did the same thing almost imediately after log on. At one stage laptop would not restart and only solution was to reinstall the old memory and laptop has worked ok since.

I have found a few references to acer being extremely fussy with its memory type can you advise.

Hello to you all,

I left the battery in an Acer laptop while I swapped out old memory modules and put in new ones. I think doing this may have damaged the laptop...I'm looking for some advice about this. I'm wanting to know if any of you think this laptop most definitely got “fried,” or maybe not.

It's an Acer TravelMate 4000 laptop with Windows XP. When new, it had 512 GB of memory/RAM (two 256 MB PC-2700 SoDIMM modules). I wanted to upgrade the RAM, so I found the Acer service manual for this laptop on the web. It said it can take up to 2 GB of PC-2700 200 pin RAM.

After I put the new memory in, the laptop wouldn't start up. When I press the power button, the cooling fan comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, then stops. Nothing at all appears on the screen...no Acer splash screen, no BIOS hardware information or anything.

I did some reading on the web about “how to upgrade memory on a laptop.” In one guy's tutorial/instructions, he says that if you don't remove a laptop's battery first before opening up the hardware covers and removing internal parts, the charge in the battery will “surge the laptop's hardware.”

After reading that, I took the battery out of the Acer. Then I swapped the memory again, taking out the new modules and putting the old ones back in. My thinking was that maybe there was some compatibility problem after all with the new memory. But after putting t... Read more

A:Acer laptop memory upgrade problem (left battery in...)

It's recommended that all power sources be removed before upgrading any computer. However if the laptop was off the risk of damage should be low. This is the same as for a desktop; when you turn it off there is still some power to the system until you unplug the power cord OR flip the power supply switch off.

Have you tried each one of the old sticks one at a time in each of the two slots?

Also try booting it with no RAM, then install the old RAM back in and try again, sometimes that can cause certain laptops to reset the CMOS, or so I've heard.

Hello everyone, As you know, today is the last day to upgrade Windows 10 for free. I have a ES-111M notebook and I want to know if I upgrade my notebook to WIN 10, will I able to recovery with Acer Recovery Management like Windows 8.1. If I cannot, I believe I can't, what should I do with recovery partition, it is really huge for my harddisk (32 gb). If I delete it, because I cannot use anyway, will my warrenty be voided? Thanks a lot.

A:Upgrade Windows 10 and Acer Recovery

1) Create a recovery media, using Acer erecovery software, an USB flash driver is needed (16-32GB); so you will be always able to revert to the factory OS installation, using that USB flash drive2)then you can delete, the recovery partition (sometimes the Acer erecovery after creating the media, will ask you to delete or not the recovery partition3) in my opinion, it will be better to backup all your personal data too and do a windows 10 clean install (wiping your HDD content, so you will have the most storage available to install windows 10) http://community.acer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Windows-10-Installation-Recovery-Media-Creation-and-Use/... windows 10 drivers:http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/support-product/5572;-;Aspire%20ES1-111M

There's a good chance that the Windows 7 driver may work with Windows 8, but the only way to find out it to try it & see. If there are any issues, you should get an error message informing you that the driver isn't compatible, or it may appear to install but just not work! If that is the case, then try IOBits Driver Booster Free - it might be able to find a compatible driver. If it doesn't, then you may have to forgo the card reader....!

I have an Acer Aspire 5820T and want to upgrade to Windows 10, which Acer says it doesn't support.  Does anyone know how to do this, please?  (In completing the data for this forum post, am slightly surprised to find that it seems to classify as a Legacy laptop, when it's not very old.)All help gratefully received!  Thanks.

Hi all,

Firstly, thanks a lot in advance for helping me out - I've been through what feels like nearly all the other threads in here looking for a solution and I am overwhelmed by the generosity and helpfulness of people here.

So here's my problem. I upgraded my Acer Aspire One netbook (A0150) to Windows 7. This went fine, had a few issues getting Windows 7 SP1 and Microsoft Office SP2 to update via Windows Update (several failures) but got there after multiple tries.

However, since then I've been getting regular, random BSODs. I've tried most of the ideas suggested - ran memtest86 about 5 times with no faults. I had Avast installed so I uninstalled that and changed to MSE, but still get BSODs. I've run sfc /scannow (no problems detected). I've also done a clean reinstall of Windows 7 but get the same problems.

So I've reached the limit of my knowledge - any and all help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks again

Steve


Basic Specs

- Windows 7 Professional 32bit
- Full retail version
- Upgraded from XP (OEM originally installed)
- Acer Aspire One netbook - around 2 years old
- Windows 7 installed around 1 week ago

I have a Acer Desktop AX14206-U5832 i got a mesage from Microsoft that I can not upgrade to Windows 10. The Message reads: This Mfg. Hasn't made your display compatable with windows 10. So I am guessing I need a new video card and maybe more. It says My video card is a NVIBIA GeForce G150SE NForce 430. So can I change my video card in this model??? What video card do I need???? Is there more that needs done?? I am not a technical wizzard!!

Yes, you should be able to add a sparate video card in, replacing the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE that's built into the motherboard. IIRC there is one x16 slot and one x1 slot.

As XP runs out next week I need to upgrade my OS and want to know if I my machine can handle the upgrade to 8.1.  The Microsoft Upgrade assistant says I can and all my tech savvy friends say its ok but before I go ahead I just want to ensure I'm not going to encounter any significant issues that are going to be costly, seriously time consuming or frustrating!  Your advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

There's a good chance that the Windows 7 driver may work with Windows 8, but the only way to find out it to try it & see. If there are any issues, you should get an error message informing you that the driver isn't compatible, or it may appear to install but just not work! If that is the case, then try IOBits Driver Booster Free - it might be able to find a compatible driver. If it doesn't, then you may have to forgo the card reader....!

Just got a brand New Acer E5-572G. Nice laptop so far. Except ive run into a problem. After upgrading to Windows 10 my onboard speakers no longer play any sound. The speaker icon shows that everything is at full volume and even doing a test sound shows that sound is "playing" just not actually making any noise. Ive attempted to uninstall and reinstall the device but havent had any luck. The headphone jack does still work however. Any help?

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire L3600 that I would like to upgrade to Windows 7 preferably 64-bit.

I have add a look on the Acer support site and the only driver available is for the sound card. Looking on this forum I see some people have installed Windows 7 but are unable to get a new drive up working with the wireless LAN card.

Does this mean that this model is basically not upgradable? Or as someone else found some tricks around this area where they have found some drivers work.

I am not going to attempt anything until I can satisfy myself that an upgrade will go smoothly.

Robert?

I looked Through the eligible list, and while it did say "Aspire series" I didn't see my specific system, could someone clarify if my Desktop Aspire AM3450-ES10P can be upgraded to Windows 10 and do I need to upgrade the BIOS? Thanks.

Hello everyone, this is my first post here. I looked around this website and I found that the people in here are very kind. Anyway, I installed Windows 8.1 Professional onto my Acer Aspire 6935g and I found a few problems:

- The brightness does not change at all wether I press FN and Right or Left, or do it from Windows 8. It doesn't change.

- The sound and bass sounds perfect after installing drivers but every now and then it fuzzes, so for instance, when an error appears, it makes a "fzzzzzz" sound and it's annoying. (I did something to it and it might be working fine now, I have to wait and see.)

Those are the problems I am having at the moment, I have to wait and see if I get more problems on Windows 8. I have it dual-booted with Windows 7 just in case if anything goes wrong and thank lord I did. I am typing this in Windows 7 right now because Windows 8 is having some problems. Please can anyone help?

P.S, sorry if I posted this in the wrong category. I did not know which one to put it in!

I am in way over my head and could use a push in the right direction.

I have an Acer Aspire M5100 Desktop that was running Vista 32 bit. I tried to upgrade to Windows 7, and am now stuck. I do not know what the exact problem is. I think it is EITHER a problem with BIOS or with an incompatible graphics driver.

After the upgrade process (I did not do a clean install), when the computer rebooted for the last time, the screen went black and it it did not advance past a certain point. The error message read, cannot boot from CD.

Since then, when I turn on my computer, the screen goes to black. That's it. If I push delete, I can access BIOS. Even when the boot priority is the CD Rom, nothing happens. I cannot access a GUI to make changes to drivers, etc.

With all of the known incompatibilities this computer has with Windows 7, it probably would be best to return to Vista. Ideally, without a clean install because of all the software and files on the computer. But I understand a clean install might be necessary.

How do I use my Vista recovery CD when there is no GUI accessible? Can I do this through the BIOS menu? I am not good with command prompt coding, so if that is mandatory, I would love some help there!

Unfortunately, I do not know the exact computer specs, again because there is no GUI. The best I can do is this Acer website:
Acer Support: Aspire M5100 Specifications

THANKS IN ADVANCE.

My inpiron M731R-5735 when powered on has black screen and starts beeping 7 times. can anyone please help
 

A:inpiron M731R-5735 black screen 7 beeps

Hi SHIFTY303,
When did the issue start? Is there any damage on the system?
The 7 beeps indicates a CPU failure, however, it seems more like a motherboard issue. 
Download the service manual here - http://dell.to/2iOuy9w - disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then try connecting with the adapter only / battery only.
Remove the memory modules / HDD and try powering on the system. If the issue persists, then replace the motherboard.
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
You could also order the parts here - http://bit.ly/2iOBMdz
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.
