Can Acer Window 7 OS be used on a Desk Top ?

Q: Can Acer Window 7 OS be used on a Desk Top ?

Sometime in the past I happen to download a a windows 7 from on line to be installed on an acer,
I still have it an have a need to start up a Desk Top, . .  Can it be done ?

Preferred Solution: Can Acer Window 7 OS be used on a Desk Top ?

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: Can Acer Window 7 OS be used on a Desk Top ?

The only way to know if it's physically possible would be to try. If it's a recovery disc, then it's likely to only work with the system it is intended to go onto. It will expect to find the Acer laptop hardware, and if it doesn't, may refuse to install, or install the drivers etc for the Acer, and Windows may not be able to boot.
As far as being a legitimate Windows installation goes, since it's specifically for an Acer, it will almost certainly be an OEM version of Windows, which means it is only licensed for the original system it's intended for, and can only legitimately be used on that system.
With that said, if the system you're loading it onto has a COA certificate showing a matching license, and it loaded onto the system and worked OK, then in practice as far as licensing goes it's a moot point where the installation actually came from...

How do I reinstate my emails onto the acer desk top please

Have an Acer desk top that when powered up I immediately get a window that says to press F1 to start. This screen appears every time I power it on. Even resorted to getting a PS2 mouse and keyboard. Once in a great while it will finally boot into Windows 10 but my mouse is frozen and can't do anything. I can't get to my BIOS or anything as it shows that screen with press F1 to start and stays there. Don't know what to do with the system as it doesn't boot and give me mouse or keyboard access. Bought it off Ebay but kept it in the box until my old desktop died so it was after the 30 day return policy. Any ideas? I am leaning towards a bad hard drive but hope that isn't it.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

A:Acer desk top will not boot Windows 10

#1:   Reset the BIOS back to factory default.  In case you are not sure how to do this, power down and unplug the power cable from the wall socket. Press the power switch for 5 seconds (clears the capacitors). Open the case and remove the CMOS battery for about 10 minutes. It looks like a small, silver coin about the size of a nickel. Many computers also have a small jumper switch usually located close to the battery. Move the jumper to the side, wait about 10 seconds, then move it back to original position again. You can check your computer manual to find where this jumper is located. Then reinstall the CMOS battery again; make sure you get the polarity correct, if you put it in backwards the computer will do some really strange things, and possibly not boot. Replug the power cable and boot.
#2: Try to enter Safe Mode; if you don't know how to do this post back or see the manual (if one came with the computer).
Post back with the results of both the above. Please include the make and model of the computer, we are working in the dark here.

After a recent all-day session with HP Tech support who took remote control of my computer, I now have a picture on my desktop that appears when I open my laptop computer. The picture is different each time I open my laptop and gives me the option to change the series of pictures if I don't like the type of pictures it is displaying. When I click in the center of the screen, my login window appears, I enter my password and then my regular windows desktop picture displays along with my program icons. On occasion, when I log in, a bing search bar window appears as shown below.

The initial picture that appears when I open my laptop is not a big issue because I just click in the center to bring up the login window but having to close the Bing window is a nuisance. I assume the picture is somehow tied into the Bing pop up. Is there some way to keep this popup from appearing?

A few mornings back, at regular morning start up time, my desk top Acer PC failed to start up and load. Lights on tower and keyboard both blinked on and off, monitor was dead, but nothing beyond that happened.

I unplugged, reconnected, attempted to power up repeated times, finally (since the first time this started, this now is daily pattern), for reasons I cannot pin point, it fires up, and runs all day like a champ.

The only thing different the night that proceeded the first morning this happened was it was a night here that called for me to keep the AC running all night, due to heat.

Any clue as to why this is happening and info on what will resolve it.

I thought, perhaps a hardware issue, but as I stated, once it starts, it runs all day long 100% normal.

When newegg had a good deal or w/e site my friend got it on, I bought myself a acer computer it was the time when acer had an available upgrade for window 7, I say this computer that I'm using is somewhat built, we just upgraded a few things and i am using a radeon video card. Well, my problem is?..How do I reboot my computer with this window 7 acer; I cant figure a way to reboot this computer. Its still brand new, I'd say about a year or less old. I didn't really download much so I don't care what happens to my files that are inside this computer.

When I insert window 7 media(I think its the reboot disc) the other disc is Acer upgrade DVD(upgrade wizard). The window 7 media that I just inserted was finished, my friend told me to insert it and let it finished; but I don't see no Reboot options.

It also says, I have to unistall the ATI programs.

In need of help to reboot, and willing to guide me step by step or just tell me what I have to do.(I am confused)

A:Help Reboot window 7 acer PC

Okay, let's work on terminology first. You are looking to "recover" your system, not "reboot" it. Reboot is simply turning it off and back on.

The computer would have either come with a recovery disk(s), OR it would have had a way for you to make recovery disk(s) from inside Windows, OR it may have a recovery option that requires you to press a function key when you turn the computer on (before Windows starts). One of the last two options is the most likely. If all you have is an actual Microsoft Windows 7 disk, your task will be harder since you will be doing a clean install of Windows, and you may need to go to Acer's website to complete the installation by downloading drivers for your particular hardware.

Hi i am not the best with computers, I have a acer aspire, windows 7. thats all i know about it, but recently it was being so slow and horribly laggy/notresponding programs that i did a complete factory settings restore.

it now has no files and is back to day 1 like when i purchased it. but the problem still remains its slow and i cannot play any of my games or even loading facebook is slow. its not my internet because my grandmas computer wich is older than me runs perfectly fine on the internet.

if anyone could possibly help or fix my issues with computer speed i would greatly appreciate it, and maybe next friday i could try to send some money over paypal if it gets fixed ;[

ALSO: when i shut my laptop and it goes into sleep mode i guess, or hibernation
when i hit the power button to revive or turn it back on, im guessing its a fan makes a weird sound in the front near my touch pad but it only does it for about ten seconds then stops making that sound then wont do it again till the next time i put my computer in sleep mode and turn it back on.

PLEASE HELP ME in dire need of playing my zombie games ;[

My Acer 5742 laptop is not able to reboot during start up. It says: "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer."
I called Acer and they say that my warranty is over (even I paid for the 3 yr extended warranty at future shop) and they put me to a 3rd party repair shop based in India which asked me to pay for their repair service. I brought it to future shop(best buy)) they want me to pay $99 for initial trouble shooting and more money for the other technical repair because they say it is software problem. Unfortunately, when future shop did the laptop set up, they did not save a recovery disc or Windows 7 discs for me. How can I repair my laptop from here. Will appreciate any help. Thanks.

A:Acer 5742 crash-window 7 repair

You would need to run startup repair (three times with a restart in between each if necessary) - Startup Repair

If your System Spec is right, you should install 64bit since you have 6GB RAM. However, there is no upgrade path from 32 to 64 bit. So you would have to clean install Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Can you not find a 64bit Home Prem installation DVD from a friend?

If you need to get your user files/data off try booting with Linux Mint MATE (if asked choose TRY and not install) and copy them to an external drive.

Hi, My Acer S7-392 running Windows 10 fails to connect to my Celluon PicoPro projector. I blame it's the PC's fault, because my Lumia 950 phone connects to the projector just fine. A few months ago the PC used to connect fine as well (maybe some drivers got automatically updated since then). The projector is discovered, but the connection cannot be established, sometimes the laptop thinks it's connected, but the projector shows that an error occurred during connection (no error message is provided), sometimes it displays "Couldn't connect" in the Connect charm. The laptop has latest Intel network and graphics drivers, both released in 2016. "netsh wlan show driver" shows that wireless displays are fully supported by both network and graphics drivers. Has anybody experienced same issue? Does anyone know versions of the drivers that are proved to work? Thanks!

The problem is that the machine completely freezes for no apparent reason, on all the operating systems I have tried.  By 'freezes', I mean there is no reaction to mouse movement, keyboard presses and power button pressed off.  The freeze seems to be at a random time and can happen even when the system is idle.The Acer Travelmate 7750G laptop came pre-installed with Windows 7 and it kept freezing.  The machine was upgraded to Windows 8, 8.1, 10, then dual boot with Linux Mint 17.3.  The machine froze on all the operating systems.  I have software tested the hard drive, memory, CPU, GPU and they have all passed fine.  Is there anybody who has knowledge of how to resolve or further trouble-shoot this please? 

A:Acer Travelmate 7750G totally freezes using Window...

Hi man23p You could try (if you have a decent one lying around) a replacement HDD. I have previously tested one on a desktop that had issues, but the drive when tested showed no errors. On replacing it, it solved the problem. Since you've reinstalled various Windows/Linux editions & tested various hardware & the problem still exists, then it will either be the mobo or the CPU. From past experience, CPU's these days rarely fail - motherboard failure is more common. So you may like to have it checked out by a pc engineer just to verify, but I don't think there will be much you can do, unless you're lucky enough to find a second hand one.

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.

Hello, apperiantly one week back acer deleted "Acer Launch Manager" keyboard driver for acer laptops and i cant find it anywhere, its like NEWER REALLY WAS THERE BEFORE... O.O

actually there was 2 options of keyboard driver to choose from (acers website): one driver was made by Acer itself, another one - by some dritek.

Unfortenatly they probably think that dritek driver is better so they left just that one.
i dont know, maybe its better, but its UGLY! cause this driver gives logos indicators on display when i use VOLUME, BLUETOOH, WIFI, etc buttons... the logos by dritek is retarted comparing to acers. actually i realized that acers logos is like mac's.. maybe thats the reason they removed from download section..

anyway, i wan my old driver back its beautiful and its better, cause with that driver my power button was atleast recognised as "P" button. Now its just opens panel where i can set up shortcuts to buttons that i dont ewen have! wtf acer is thinking about?...

I bet some of u guys still have old good acer app+driver installed that is called Launch Manager and shows nice square black transparent logos when u press volume keys.
I had that one before i reinstalled windows. So please, could anybody send me? if u dont have install, maybe then just compress whole folder from program files? i think it should work, cause drivers would be same but app is the one that make logos.

Hi all,
I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 64-Bit (Windows 7 Home Premium) laptop that I bought before the summer, today a Windows Update has given me an Acer display update published on the 28/12/2011. I thought because I had my vga cable plugged into the TV Windows Update may have become confused but despite checking for updates again it still appears there as optional.

AMD/ATI is recognized by Windows and Windows Update and there had already been a display driver update not so long ago, so I cannnot understand why I'm receiving an update for the wrong machine?

A:Acer - Display - ACER S271HL update on Compaq Presario CQ56 64-Bit

Not actually for AMD/ATI almost monthly you can see a newer update become available and that's why you will see one listed as an optional hardware update for the integrated graphic chips on the laptop.

Since Windows detects the tv you are using as an external monitor that also becomes a detected hardware. If that happens to be an Acer brand tv that would explain why that particular update came about.

Hello. It's the second time when I come here.
First I had this problem - https://forums.techguy.org/threads/my-laptop-wont-boot-from-usb.1173499/
and now it got worse.
I don't know what happened to my Acer Aspire ES 14 (ES1-431-C8JZ). (I haven't dropped it or something like that)
When I turn it on, it stucks on Acer logo screen, and then I can't do anything.
I tried to restart it, same problem.
I tried to enter BIOS, Boot Manager, nothing works.
Then I disassembled it, reset bios, and again, nothing worked.
I made a bootable USB - Slax, I tought Linux could fix this, but it doesn't work. It doesn't boot. I tried to remove the hard drive so I can boot with Slax like this (I've heard about this feature of slax - to boot even without hard drive) but it won't pass the Acer logo.
It would be great if someone can tell me where is the problem or how to fix it. Thank you.

A:Laptop Acer won't load past Acer logo screen

Did you ever solve your previous thread?

It's possible that your hard drive is faulty, and it can't boot into Windows because of that.
I don't have any experience with Linux, so I can't confirm if Slax allows you to boot without a hard drive installed.

Do you have any spare hard drives lying around? If not, consider purchasing a low capacity one, installing Windows on it, and trying to boot then. If it still won't boot, then you didn't spend much money on the hard drive, and it'll narrow down your issue a little more.

Worst case scenario is there's something wrong with your motherboard (as per your other thread involving your USB ports).

Good Morning.
I have an Acer E3-575 laptop with Windows 10. I recently purchased an Acer LCD Monitor K202HQL. I cannot get the monitor to work. It starts up with the Acer logo, but goes to "no signal.

I have connected the two with the VGA cable than came with the monitor. I have the current Generic PNP Drivers installed. The system says my drivers are the correct ones, and my device (monitor) is working properly. However, my monitor says "no signal".

In Display Settings, the system does not detect another display.

Control/Microsoft butting + P says your PC cannot project to another screen. Try reinstalling the driver or using another video card. I have reinstalled the driver with no success.

I have search the internet for several days and found no solution. Can anyone fix this?

Thank you.

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.

Hey There

First of all: I'm a studend, so I can't speek good english, cause I live in Switzerland (plz write in German if you can )

So my Problem:

I've found a Acer Aspire 5920G with Windows Vista. This was so slow and annoying . So I deleded the whole OS and installed Win 7 Home Premium x64. Now I'm searching some drivers for my Notebook. My biggest Problem is the sound driver.
In Vista, there was a tool called "Acer eAudio Manager". I want to install it, because you can switch the equalizer to movie, music and game (and it sounds awesome with the bassbooster=D). I've downloaded the driver from the website and there was a error:

"This software can only be installed in authorized machine"

what can I do to install this tool? Some other tools, like acer power management or acer enet management, works great.

I thought I ask in this forum, because there were some good topics about the mouspad and synaptic of the 5920G (wich helped me=D)

I hope you understand my question and can help me

(And yes, I'm a real Linux fan^^ I've used always Ubuntu. This is the first time that I use Windows )

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!
Regards Brett.

my desktop loads ok then the screen goes black for a few seconds. It loads again and is blurry with lines in the taskbar. In the display properties settings it has changed to 8bit. I change it back to 16 bit or 32 and it comes back ok & stays that way until I start the computer again. Any suggestions?

A:SP2 And No Desk Top Also Here Is The Log

I would ask this question in the XP forum. Your log is clean..and I'm willing to bet your issue isn't spyware related. You said you got this screen right after you installed SP2 which tells me it may have an issue with the hardware in your system and SP2 was the cause.

Reboot into safe mode..and remove SP2 and see if that solves your issue. If so...you will then need to make sure all your hardware and software programs are compatiable with the SP2 upgrade.
