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.)

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

I cannot access my 9 in 1 card reader in 'my computer'. WHEN I insert my SD card, nothing happens. I searched in device manager, tried adding hardware even opened the case and unplugged it and restarted and plugged it into the MOBO again, hoping it would recognize new hardware.

Go to "My Computer".

What system do you have XP, Vista?

In "My Compute", check if at least you have the 9-1 card reader detected. You should see different drive letters in My Computer, like E:, F:, G; or something similar.

Did you see the letters? They should be next to the main drive C:.

I'm having trouble installing windows 7 on my Aspire M1610. I have had to replace the hard drive and the recovery discs have gone missing, moved house. I have tried vista also, which it came with, should I be able to use a retail copy of windows and get a clean install or do I need an Acer branded disc for bios reasons or something?  I'm confused. I thought any retail disc woulld install on any pc as long as you had the drivers and correct product key. I get as far as selecting the disc partition and then windows copies, installs and says saving and setting up services and then when it says restarting to complete installation it wont boot. Im using a wd 2.5" 320GB sata drive.

I have had an Acer Apire T180 for a long time, and it is rarely used any more. I was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade its CPU, and add in a graphics card so that it would be suitable for high end gaming?

5 months ago I formatted Acer Aspire T180 Vista to XP Pro. The reason why was that when I on Vista. I accidently deleted the LAN or modem driver. So I decided to switch with xp. But I realized that it does not install LAN driver automatically. So I ended up getting 1394 adapter on networking panel. I was doing research and tried to download proper LAN driver on my other computer. I remember I downloaded on google and I typed "Acer Aspire T180 LAN driver for XP". I downloaded it from "drivers.softpedia.com/.../Acer-Aspire-T180-LAN-Driver.shtml" It was really easy to install it. When I transfer the files to t180. It had .exe file. So I got a connection. But it always stuck with Google. For example if I insert "www.yahoo.com" It won't transfer to yahoo. I'm still on google page no matter what. even If I browse from google I end up going to Google front page. So I decided to format again to XP. But this time I can't find the driver. I went to Acer website and downloaded LAN drivers. But it does not have exe. driver. So I can't install it. I remember when I looked at the adapter on my networking places. It was something like "Yukon Family ...????" Can you guys help me?

     I have an Acer Aspire T180.  The machine came with an AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4 Ghz processor.  I am thinking about upgrading the processor to an AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core 6000+ 3Ghz processor.  I have done some research on the motherboard and it is an ECS MCP61PM-AM motherboard. Looked @ the motherboard on the following sitehttp://www.ascendtech.us/ecs-mcp61pm-am-dual-core-am2-motherboard_i_mb64ecsmcp61pma.aspx In the CPU section it states that the Dual Core processor is supported, but what I am wondering is if I have to upgrade the BIOS as well or will it run fine with the current BIOS on the motherboard.  If I need to update the BIOS, where can I find it.

Hi donkeyd The Athlon 64 3800+ processor is a Socket 939 CPU, whereas the Athlon 64x2 6000+ is the newer AM2, so unfortunately are not compatible. You will need to look for a dual core CPU that will fit a Socket 939. Hope this helps!

Hi,

I am having trouble with the sound on my computer, as in I have none!

The computer type is an Acer Aspire T180.

I used to have sound and then suddenly one day I didn't and I'm not sure how I lost it. But when I went into the system I had an error message saying that I did not have the correct software to install 'Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus' with a yellow exclamation mark.

I came on here and saw that I needed to download the correct drive, so I went to the Acer website and downloaded the Audio Drive, which in turn downloaded 'Realtek HD Audio Manager.'

When I went back to the system the 'Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus' has gone. I have tried all possible solutions on Windows help but nothing!

Please help! I have been trying to solve this problem for hours and am ready to give up! Any suggestions?

Hi,
I'm hoping you can help. Recently purchased and Acer Aspire T180. It has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ processor, and a gig of ram.

The specs when purchases state it runs at 2.6GHz. When checking the performance through the system info in the control panel it says only 2.1?

I spoke to the retailer, they advised that I would need to deal with Acer, apparently Acer have been putting lower spec RAM in the PCs which is why the Clock speed is slower? (dont know if this is true)

This sounds plausable so I called Acer. They said the memory is fine (DDR2 333) and the only reason it runs at 2.1 is due to configuration in BIOS. Apparently this is easy to change but the guy wasnt allowed to tell me how over the phone incase I destroy my system. Told me to go back to retailer.. grrrrr...

So now I'm stuck.... I dont know the exact specs of the Mother Board as it is sealed and will invalidate warranty if I open the case!!!!

Can anyone help?? Is this an easy change in BIOS. I have changed settings before on another PC, but the BIOS on this PC doesnt seem to have any familiar menu's relating to clock speed of FBus speed.

I'm a little sceptical as I always thought that clock speed will be limited by the max speed of the memory, and at 333, I'm thinking it won't allow the process to run at 2.6..

Lastly, it also only shows as 767MB Ram available. I know this is because it is sharing 256 for video, but I was told that you could remove this RAM allocation som... Read more

I am trying to help a neighbor get her desktop running.  When I got there, it was beeping on boot.  I removed the memory stick (pc2-5300 x 2 gb)
I cleaned it with an eraser with a static bracelet on and re-installed it...It posted but I did not have monitor attached at that point.  I brought it to my house and hooked it up and believe it or not it booted.  She does not even have internet service so I decided to do some windows updates and run some scans.  No problems found. I then installed some used pc2-4200 (2 x 2 gb) to speed it up but it would not post so I replaced the old ram back.  Now I only get BSOD...ox0000008e (0xc0000005,0x81d56F15,ox85EC38c4)

Hello, my new Acer Aspire Notebook has my IE homepage stuck to global.acer.com and I can't change it through any of the IE options (Use Blank, Use Current, or typing it in manually - I'm trying to set it to Google).

I went to this page to solve the problem: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q320159 (Home page setting changes unexpectedly, or you cannot change your home page setting).

As per Microsoft's instructions, I tried changing the "Start Page" value in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main," but I got the following error: "Cannot edit Start Page: Error writing the value's new contents." There was no "Default_Page_URL" entry in there.

I was able to change the "Default_Page_URL" value to "Google.com" under "HKEY_ LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" and the "Start Page" value in there was already set to "http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd={SUB_PRD}&clcid={SUB_CLSID}&pver={SUB_PVER}&ar=home"

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

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 !!!

So at first i thought it my keyboard wasn't being seen by windows 10. but sometimes after holding the bluetooth button an unknown device appears that appears to be my keyboard. yet when i type in the connection code it doesn't respond and then the device no longer is showing. It could just be another bluetooth device though; i live in a dorm so there's many other people with bluetooth devices in the area. I checked out this: https://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/30072/~/how-to-pair-the-acer-bluetooth-keyboar... but it only applies to 8 and 8.1, not 10. Perhaps acer should release a driver update for windows 10 early adopters that fixes their keyboard to work with windows 10, unless there is a simple bug fix? I looked online but i seem to be the only one with this issue so far, possibly due to the newness of 10. Edit: found this post, which weirdly didn't show up previously: http://community.acer.com/t5/Windows-10/Bluetooth-not-working-after-installing-Windows-10-on-Aspire-... trying to update my drivers again to confirm this isn't an issue. edit 2: nope it added a connected devices section to replace the bluetooth section, but otherwise didn't solve the problem yet. edit 3: so after like 2 hours i finally realized what was the issue.In order for it to be discoverable you need to make sure to first install the new windows 10 specific bluetooth driver mentioned in the above post , then use the REPAIR option in the blu...

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. Any thoughts?

To start off, this laptop has been horrible since the day I got it. I can't even believe how slow it is; it lags doing even the simplest tasks.That aside; I was prompted to update an AMD Catalyst Radeon (something like that) software, so I did. The screen went black and nothing happened for almost 10 hours.I eventually decided to turn off the power. Now that I turn it back on it's just stuck on "Acer explore beyond limits" screen.It has been like this for days now. I've tried turning it on and off again several times. It's just stuck at that screen.What do I do? How do I fix this? I need this computer for school.

Hello, im user of Acer Aspire ES1-331. I have been using it from February 2016 with Windows 8.1For a long time Acer Quick Access and Acer Bluelight Shield were working properly but some days ago something happened and: option of sharing WiFi disappeared (it was under "Rozruch do pulpitu") from AQA and it became impossible to turn on ABS. Earlier when i turned it on or off it happened immediately. Now some dots are going around for a few seconds and i get that: http://imgur.com/a/EpfjtIt means : "You cant control that device" . the same happens when i change intensity of ABS - nothing changes however it can write that it changed. On the screen "high" level is turned on but you see that it is a lie. I am using it on Admin accoutn of course.I reinstalled Acer Quick Access but nothing changed and i cant use Acer Bluelight Shield. Rest of options of Acer Quick Acces works (Wifi and Bluetooth).Thanks for reading!

Not sure why this happened but you can try rolling the system back to a previously working configuration. Try the steps to roll it back at http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37096/~/windows-10%3A-restore-windows-from-a-restor.... If Windows Updates ran prior to this happening something could have installed that caused this. Restoring it back like this should resolve the issue.

Hi. I cannot download Acer Care Center for some reason. I have tried via wired and wireless connectivity with no joy. The AcerCareCenterCheckTool prompts Download failed. Please check your network connection and try again. I have tried run as admin, troubleshoot compatibility to which it fails each time. The only thing that does change is when running the program sometimes it prompts Your model is supported. Do you want to download Acer Care Center? to which I press Yes then downloading... dots keep moving until Download failed. Please check your network connection and try again. appears. Is there a direct link to the actual setup file? Also just to note. I found W10 run a lot smoother when I previously installed W10 carrying over apps etc. from 8.1. This fresh install if you like, upgrade carrying over nothing has killed boot times which were considerably faster previously. Have I lost any vital software, drivers etc. carrying over nothing then manually installing drivers from Acer supports site?

Are you trying to download and install Acer Care Center because you lost the recovery partitions?If they are gone, nothing you can download will put them back.You will need to go to the Acer store, click ERECOVERY and purchase restore media.

I finally found a soluation after months of wondering why this is happening. It's my Virgin Media connection, the modem/router as when I connected to my phones wifi, teethering, Acer Care Center instantly updated so something within Virgin Medias network is blocking connectivity. I did try the Virgin Media's router as cause by diabling firewall etc. but with no joy I gave up but didn't try another connection until just now with tethering where as stated problem is sorted. I will report this to Virgin Media and post back anything relevant to this.

I wasted a lot of ink on this problem, by printing out a lot of information on it. But I found out that this is an easy fix. So I guess the wasted ink was not wasted after all, on one of these printouts was the solution. In the bio settings there is an option to change the default SATA Mode of the Boot Drive. The default is [AHCI] Mode Advanced Host Controller Interface. This needs to be set to [IDE] Mode using F5 key to change it over. As soon as I did this operation it let Windows Install and Format the drive with the correct size of the drive partition. (After setting the mode, do not forget to Save and Exit) I'm going to add this just because (ACER was no help on this problem and does not even have the driver's for my Acer Model on there web site) NOT GOOD ACER I hope this helps a lot of people that have had this problem. Later Fred

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire V5-551. I forgot the password to my BIOS, so I disassembled the laptop and removed the CMOS battery for 30 minutes. Then I turned it on and noticed that it no longer boots into Windows, it won't let my go into BIOS  (still asking for the password) and it won't let me choose boot devices or go into recovery mode / factory reset. It's stuck on the "acer explore beyond limits" screen. Can anyone help me?
