I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating.

I have the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 pro video card and i want to install a game but the video card has to be in 256 color mode and in Windows i can only go to 32 bit what can i do? Any comments or posts would be great! Thank YOU!
 

A:Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 pro Problem?

Just to be clear, 32-bit is actually 16,777,216 colors, so its much more then 256 which is just 256 colors. So for 256 you need to lower the color depth not increase it.

I've noticed the back of the laptop heating up for the past year, and usually place the screen section on a USB-powered fan platform to reduce the heat. When I put it to "sleep" I then turn off the AC power. I've been able to run it without AC power for 2-4 hrs on numerous occasions. However, about a week ago when I tried to resume from "sleep" before turning on ACpower, the CPU suddenly turned off. At the time I was using an external USB modem which was plugged in. So I turned on the AC power, and restarted the laptop. That happened a few times, and at least twice I saw a brief message on screen saying the battery level was below 3%, so CPU was turning off. Usually in sleep mode battery storage would not drop below 93%. In the past week the battery has stopped charging. (Last night it said the battery level was 0%; all day today it shows 83%.) So I have to use the ACpower to keep the laptop running.HP Battery check today produced the following results:Warranty Type: 3Cycle count: 187 / 1000Manufacturer: 331CBattery Age: 780 daysSerial Number: 02255 2014/09/30Temperature: 36 °CDesign Capacity: 4580 mAhFull Charge Capacity: 3818 mAh (83%)Remaining Capacity: 3193 mAhCurrent: 0 mATerminal Voltage: 8254 mVDesign Voltage: 7600 mVCell Voltage 1: 4127 mVCell Voltage 2: 4127 mVCell Voltage 3: 0 mVCell Voltage 4: 0 mVStatus: 82AC Power: YesCT Number: 6EJHQ03WY7J48YFailure ID: MAHW60-000000-MFGH6K-C0E103 I'm instructed to replace the batter...

Hi there. I would like to know on how to enable my Wake on Lan in my bios settings. For my computer I have an Acer Aspire 5733Z model with Windows 7 Home Premium on it. I already know though that I already have Wake on Lan on my network adapter for my Local Area Network. It looks like that I have all the necessary options for my network adapter. I have "Allow This Device to Wake the Computer, and I have other options as well there. But when I went into my bios setup, I couldn't find the option for my Wake on Lan.

But it could be there, but I have no idea on where to look, though. And I do not even have a Power Management tab in my bios, either. My bios setup is very kind of limited to it's settings. I also flashed and upgraded my bios to a later date, but it didn't help still. It looks like that I have the same settings there! Or maybe I can update my network Lan drivers as well. I will have to see what happens first.

But I already know that the Aspire 5733Z has Wake on Lan for sure. But my computer did not come with a instruction manual either. Oh well. But there is actually a way to turn on my Wake on Lan, I believe. I think that there is an option for S3 PCI device in the bios, or something like that. So can you help me out here on this? Because any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. All righty? Well anyway, so thank you very much. And please get back to me as soon as possible on this issue that I am having. Because this is important to me. ... Read more

Guys, I have a problem with my Acer laptop Aspire 1640 and request help. The problem is the m/c hangs when i put on the battery. I cannot boot. It works fine on AC mains with the battery removed ! So I've removed the battery and just work on AC mains supply.

Few weeks ago I had formatted the HDD and lost all original drivers that were preinstalled by the company. However, I now have a CD copy of all the original drivers with me. On AC mains, when I install them, they do but on a reboot they all disappear. The Wireless wont work etc. The display settings go back to default.

What could the problem be and how to solve it? Can anyone help me? My OS is XP.

Hello,,,,
Thanks for your help, time, and advice!!!

Looked all around (acer.com, driver.com, this forum, etc.) and had no luck to find if there is an available BIOS upgrade for the following:

Acer/Aspire (1996) Model 5133SR
BIOS ID : ACR25E00-MOC-960730-R01-B3
BIOS Version 2.1

So far the BIOS ID seems to indicate this is a V55LA-1 ACER Motherboard. Motherboard documents with specs., jumper settings, and Layout diagram have been found.

Does anyone have any idea if there is an avialable BIOS Upgrade and where to get it, plus the available flasher.exe????

I just purchased a acer one ten tablet/ with a detachable keyboard, and it had mcaffee pre installed on it, along with windows defender running. I am totally un familiar with windows ten, I am a windows 8.1 die hard all the way, and it seems like they took my control panel out , or its harder to find. Also I installed Avast , since I have faith in them more, and it ran slow and somehow ran along side mcaffee slowing it down completely.. also I cannot find how to turn off windows defender , or should I ? I am not dumb to this but I am baffled at how I cannot seem to easily dig deep into this stuff on here. Maybe somebody can throw some recommendations my way who knows, thanks for the help...lol , appreciate it a lot.
 

A:What is the best firewall/antivirus for a smaller tablet/ acer one ten model?

1) Removed McAfee completely by using their removal tool

2) Windows Defender is fine and well stable for your system but insist to add a third party AV then WD will disable only.

3) You may go to cloud based like Bitdefender Free or Panda Free Av for light performance.

Acer One holds the Intel Atom for your specifications, therefore some AV are not optimized due to their resource workloads.

RELEVANCY SCORE 48.4

My acer xd1150 projector does not project the pictures from my laptop to the screen. I have connected the power cord to the projector and the s-video cord, but when I turn on the projector I only see a white screen projected and nothing else. I have tried to use the function 4 on my HP pavillion dv9000 laptop but that does not work. However when the s-video is plugged into the laptop the screen changes, which looks like the safe mode screen. Can you help me to get the projector working, than you.
