Q: Can't upgrade my Acer Desktop to Windows 10 Pleas...

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!!

Preferred Solution: Can't upgrade my Acer Desktop to Windows 10 Pleas...

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.)

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.

hey guys I have a possibly terminal case here I've worked on and cannot resolve. Brother's Acer desktop running windows 7 64-bit, he took the bait and switched to windows 10, and he is not a technical guy.
It ran into a bad device driver apparently and never booted win 10 successfully. I had him build a recovery usb, we did that, went into troubleshooting, asked for boot options to try to get it into safe mode, but it bailed again just like trying to startup any other way. Auto repair to no avail [he tried that about a hundred times].

short of pulling the drive and starting over again with a new drive, do any of you have a suggestion?

thank you

A:Acer desktop cannot boot after Windows 10 "Upgrade". help

Are you past the stage of wanting to recover any data off the hard disk?

If you were trying to upgrade rather than doing a clean install you could try the latter as an alternative route. This requires that you have a qualifying W7 product key that you use to activate W10.

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.

A:Pleas help .. problem with my desktop computers

Make sure you have all the USB connections right especially those to the front of the case if you have those and nothing is shorting on the back of the case. You may need to try the MB out of the case. The other cause I've seen reported at various forums (you'll love this) is the BIOS update.

Edit: Just wanted to add a couple of things. If you do have front case USB wires check them for damage. If there is a separate "card" that adds extra USB ports check to see that it is in right.

Since I upgraded to Windows 8, I am no longer able to save individual Remote Desktop Connection files as .rdp files. I am talking about the traditional Remote Desktop Connection application on the Desktop that was in previous Windows versions, not the
Remote Desktop App from the Windows 8 store.
When I try to click on the Save button I get "An error occurred while saving to file"
When I try to click on the Save As button I get "Unable to open connection file" with the file address being where I tried to save it with the file name at the end.
Also when I upgraded to Windows 8, my .rdp files disappeared from my Documents folder.
 I need to create different .rdp files for different programs that my employees get into on my server. Now I have to hand type all the info each time into the Programs tap on the Remote Desktop Connection window, because I can't save to an
.rdp file.
 I like the Remote Desktop App from the Windows store but it won't let me designate specific programs to use using standard dos notation (ie c:\program files\ etc..). It just goes to my server desktop.
 I want to promote Windows 8 to my employees but I need either .rdp files for the traditional Remote Desktop Connection or the ability to open specific programs using dos notation in the Windows Store Remote Desktop App.

When you sign up for these computer companies to send you a copy of windows 7 when it's available does anyone know what they'll actually be sending you? Do they just send you a windows 7 installation DVD like you'd buy from newegg or do they send you their own version(like a recovery DVD) with all the bloatware?

I really just wanna do a clean install with no whistles/crap.

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

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

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....!

According to the shop and to the Acer website it has "Windows 7 Professional (available through downgrade rights from Windows 10 Pro)".Despite the quick setup card showing W10 pictures and the W10 sticker on the laptop, it loaded Windows 7 when I started it for the very first time. Now I am interested in what is the propper way to upgrade to Windows 10? Interestingly the SSDs have two recovery partitions: One with 1 GB and another one with 30 GB.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Installed the WD Caviar HD into the Acer and attempted to do a clean install of Windows 7 Professional with no success.

The problem(s):
#1: The computer kept shutting down while Win7 is Expanding Windows files (0%). I discovered that the SATA Controllers were set to RAID. I changed them to IDE and noticed improvement. However, Win7 would keep shutting down during Expanding Windows Files (21%, 33%, 55%, 56%, 63%....10 freakin' times until finally, it installed).

#2: I noticed the BIOS needed an updating. I couldn't figure out how to use a USB thumb drive to flash the BIOS in DOS at startup. Tried several times and several ways to no avail. I gave up and proceeded with installation attempts #4, 5 and 6. Any assistance with this problem would be greatly appreciated. I tri... Read more

A:Windows 7 Professional Will Not Install on Acer 3800 Desktop

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

I think your Windows 7 partition is too small at 20 GB.

With a 1 TB hard drive you can afford to allocate more space for Windows - I'd suggest 100 GB should be more than enough for Windows 7 and any applications you install.

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.

On your desktop there is a Recycle Bin icon. Right click that and then choose properties.

Set/change the recycle bin options for each drive and see if that fixes the problem. Even if the current settings are as you want them, change them to something else just for the sake of it. The okay those changes. Work?

Original ACER desktop with Windows 8 and it was upgraded through the Windows Store to Windows 8.1
The upgrade came up with errors "the Secure Boot watermark".
I tried various things suggested to fix the error but was unable to.
I backed up the computer data.
I formatted the drive and installed Windows 8.1 from a thumb drive and it installed correctly without errors.
I was unable to install a Product Key Licence as the computer had it imbedded in the bios and I have no label with the key on the machine.
I should not have to purchase another licence. How do I find the original licence key?
I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance

Today I installed new antivirus for my computer. I am on a gateway and I am using windows xp. While the program was sweeping my system the screen took off all icons and closed all toolbars so I restarted my system thinking it froze. When I turn on my computer it goes to the load screen and just keeps looping the bar. I have also tried to run the restore disk but when I try that it does the same thing it tries to load it and when it starts to load it just freezes... Is there anything I can do to force the disk to run or get into windows a different way. I just need to get this fixed im not that great with computers so any help is really appreciated.

Boot from a Windows 7 DVD and use System Restore to roll back Windows to a point in time when your computer was functioning correctly. It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

Its a neighbor of mine I help them take care of their computer all the time.

The problem is the screen freezing randomly, it might be in 3 min might be 5 or 10 or 25, it does it after it has been turned off for awhile or all night or when you have been on it for awhile or quite awhile. Point being its not heating up cause it does it when it has been off for hours them 3 or 4 min after it is turned on or sometime it might be 2 hours after you turn it on. I had a thread a couple of weeks ago about this same computer I came to the conclusion that it was the Powersupply, so I put in a brand new 400W powersupply and it ran great (no freeze ups for a few days then all of a sudden it started in again).

The mouse freezes so they can't do anything but shut it down at the tower so I gave them another usb mouse tonight and told them when it freezes to unplug there mouse and put the new usb mouse in and see it it works right away then it would be the mouse. I have great doubts about it being that but I am at witts end. I consider myself pretty good at fixing computers hardware and software problems but I am lost. I have no idea. I looked in the divice manager everything is ok, checked the events and nothing happening there. I know the computer is clean of viruses or spyware cause I keep it clean for them monthly.

Spybot
Spyblaster
ie-spyad
script defender
AVG 8.0

A:Solved: Windows XP SP2- Screen freezing-no pattern- but lots- Can someone help? Pleas

The first thing that comes to mind with older machines is overheating. They can accumulate a lot of dust (even in the cleanest places) and fans can get bogged down. Check all your air intakes and remove dust from the interior. Make sure that all fans are moving (including the one on the graphics card, if present).

While inside, check all your connectiuons and make sure the graphics card is firmly in its slot.

If that doesn't help, try a memory test:

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)
Memtest86

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista and can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

mdsched.exe

Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.
