Pulling files off a crashed Acer Aspire

Q: Pulling files off a crashed Acer Aspire

Hi, first post and a newbie so thanks for being here. Normally I use an Acer Aspire 5742 laptop running Windows 7 but the screen is dead with no cursor and no signs of a boot-up, although the computer is running when switched on. I have resurrected my Dell Inspiron 530, also running Windows 7, to do a rescue mission. I have connected an ethernet cable to desktop to see if I can get some un-backed-up documents off the laptop. Because I cannot see what's going on with the laptop I cannot map it to the desktop so therefore nothing is happening. How can I see my laptop files on my desktop? Thanks, Lawrence

Preferred Solution: Pulling files off a crashed Acer Aspire

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.)

Hey guys,
I have been having this problem for a long time now. I have done my research and the solutions that other people had didn't really seem to work for me. I have tried reinstallling the display driver, formatting the computer, updating the driver, i even bought a new ATI display driver. If you guys can help me it will really be appreciated. Okay so this is what exactly happens. I would be using my computer normally then it would freeze up, the screen would go black. Sometimes it would go to a BSOD and i have to restart, sometimes it doesnt come back, and sometimes it does comeback. When it does comeback a little message pops up saying "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered" It is really Starting to annoy me.

MY PC INFO:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) (build 7600)
CPU: 2.00 gigahertz Intel Pentium Dual
HD: 309.59 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity

I got all this info using Belarc

A:Display Driver Has Crashed- Acer Aspire

From what you've described, you've done all the testing/replacement that we would have done.
In that case it's most likely that there's a problem with your motherboard and how it handles graphics.
I'd suggest a new motherboard, but that'll set you back around $100 (US) and there's no guarantee that this is the problem. If you do purchase a new mobo, be sure that you can return it for your money back if it doesn't work.

Good luck!

I failed in updating the BIOS as per Acer's instructions, and now I have a bricked PC.

I'm trying to restore the original BIOS, but not having any luck. The PC boots, I hear two beeps - one short one long, and then it hangs. The power cycles to the devices & the fan, but it doesn't do anything. I tried it with the BIOS jumpers set both at 1-2 and 2-3. No luck.

What are the key strokes I need to press to force BIOS reset? Or am I toast with this MB?

A:Acer Aspire X1301 BIOS update crashed

Hello gerry and welcome . Mate how old is the machine mate? cos if you have bricked it as you think you have you maybe up for a new one but.....

The other thing is why did you try updating the BIOS? and was this the one you tried updating from Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Desktop / Aspire / Aspire X1301

There are plenty of Googles for that problem and from what I have come across two beeps usually refers to some things in the RAM here are some refs
Computer POST and beep codes

What I would try myself first is to remove the battery lave it for a good hour or so - I have had some IBM jobs that required longer - replace with a new one, reseat the RAM and try again.

I'll keep scratching round in the meantime. Found this if it is of any help but I still think the battery change will narrow it down a bit

I believe my desktop crashed. I know the monitor and the other hardware works. I hooked my monitor to my laptop and it works fine so does my mouse and keyboard. Before my Desktop computer stop working the monitor would say "no signal" and the keyboard and mouse would not light up. This happened several times before it finally crashed. I would have to reboot. Just before the crash, I could not update my antivirus software and the color was odd looking then the screen flashed something about a crash and that was the last time it came on. It was once recognizing the key board and the mouse, but now it does not recognize any hardware. It never did recognize the monitor after the crash. The monitor says "no signal." Is there any downloadable software that I can use to bring my Computer back to life? Window's Vista Home Premium is the OS. AMD 64 live. No extra recovery software came with my computer. Can someone please help me?

I dont know where exactly to post this but here it goes.

Having major trouble with Aspire 5536 that I bought new only 4 months ago. It runs on Vista. Goes through splash screen then wont load any further. Just has a blinking cursor at the top left of the screen.

I talked to Acer and got the reload disks. I have reloaded it twice now and its appears to be loading the disks onto the HDD. When its done it lets me know and reboots. On reboot, nothing has changed. Splash screen and then blinking cursor. No windows loading screen or anything.

A guy at my work tried booting Linux off a dvd and it runs fine. Says all hardware is good. I am totally puzzled on what to do. I have read as much as possible and found some good info but none of it has worked so far.

I really don't want to send this back to Acer and have them fix it. Besides the shipping charge, it will probably take a couple months. If there is anyway that I can fix it I would like to.

Things I have tried:

- reload windows
- update system Bios
- manually select HDD at startup screen
- Hit every F key on the freaking keyboard at start - lol
- dropped an elbow or two

Anyone have any ideas? Please? Could it be my graphics card?

Really desperate. Thanks guys!

Hello,

I used nLite to create an Windows server 2003 disc that had the SATA drivers
included.I have installed Windows server 2003 that had the above drivers by
deleting the already existing Windows vista operating system on Acer Aspire
AM5641. But when I was installing, it skipped the following
files.............cmnicfg.xml, ipcfg.xxml, osinfo.xml, potscfg.xml,
pppcfg.xml,
xmlp_bdg.xdr, xmlp_bec.xdr, xmlp_beu.xdr, xmlp_ecp.xdrxmlp_ecu.xdr,
xmlp_fcd.xdr, xmlp_fcw.xdr, xmlp_hlp.xdr, xmlp_loc.xdr, xmlp_mas.xdr,
xmlp_mcc.xdr, xmlp_mcu.xdr,xmlp_mpc.xdr. I want to install SAP R/3 on Win
server 2003. Will I face any problems in future..as some files are skipped
when installing.

Thanks for the reply.
 

A:Files skipped when installing windows server 2003 on Acer Aspire AM5641

Just run sfc /scannow (copy and paste that into run, or command prompt )
You will need your Windows server 2003 CD (maybe)

Also confirm all backups are complete (even though it's just a standard Windows command, sometimes installed personal firewalls and Antivirus softwares can cause issues during the scan)

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.

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, 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).

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"

The "Default_Page_URL" and "Start Page" entries don't exist in the "HKEY_USERS\Default\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" key.

Lastly, the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel" subkey doesn't exist either.

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.

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 !!!

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

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

How can I pull video files off my DVDs? I tried copying some of the files, but am having difficulties. I can capture single frames, but I want to have actual video that I can use. Do I need a DVD-RW drive? If in fact I can copy the video files to my computer, can I convert them to a different format? What software would I need to do this? I have Windows XP, in case that makes a difference. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Is it possible to pull some files off of a a hard drive that has a bad OS? I have a second computer, but I'm not sure what cable I need or if I have to make the broken OS drive a slave. Slaving the drive is admittedly beyond my level of expertise, so if it's possible to pull them off just with cables that would be better. Thanks!

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.

A:Acer Aspire E5-571 Acer Care Center

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

Long story short, the other day I saw a program in my start menu that was newly installed and I didn't recognize it. I uninstalled it, rebooted my computer, and that's when the problems started.

First I got the error:
"Exception Processing/Message c00000a3 Paramaters 75b6bf9c" etc etc

Second:
After I clicked through the error message, explorer.exe started closing itself and then re-openning itself every 5 to 10 seconds.

I managed to open IE (obviously doesnt need explorer to stay open), and I found these forums when I searched google for my error message. Apparently a lot of other people have gotten the same error BUT never once did I read about the error causing explorer.exe to crash.

Thanks to the forums, I managed to make the Exception Processing/Message error go away, but explorer.exe is still constantly refreshing itself.

I decided I would simply get all my files off the computer and reformat, because something had messed up my OS and I couldn't find a solution online. So I bought an enclosure kit to turn my harddrive into an external harddrive. I figured the harddrive wasn't corrupted, only the OS.

So here I am; I borrowed my girlfriends laptop, pulled my harddrive, hooked everything up to dump all my files onto her computer, and now when I try to drag and drop anything from my harddrive, I get the error:

my office laptop is an ibm a22m. the hard drive is a 20gb travelstar. it's had freezing & turning off problems for a while but we're used to our office giving up crappy machines (our IT staff is clueless in Chicago). anyway, last friday the machine started clicking and froze. i ran out and bought an external hard drive & usb 2.0 port. unfortunately when i turn the computer back on it usually starts clicking before the system has booted up, which means it's frozen again. i let it sit awhile a few times and have been able to copy 3 small directories to the external. i have about 5.5 gb of data and about half is backed on floppies. but i want the larger files (which are critical to my work) and MY MUSIC. i tried installing the drive into another laptop but the clicking was still there (so it's definitely the hard drive). i don't understand that slave/master thing i've read in some other threads (so please explain if it will help). i don't have the windows 98se cd rom cuz my office keeps all installation software (they don't trust us)!!! i really want my data (surprise, surprise). i've read the freezing trick and the bang with the palm trick. haven't tried, but will if i can't find anything else to do. i just need the machine to stay on long enough to download the rest of my stuff (and install cleansweep so my office doesn't know i'm looking for another job!). even if it's a few minutes at a time, i...

I have 50 (will eventually be 300) Excel files in a folder. What I'm wanting to do is pull a little information from each of them into a new file.

Each of the Excel files has two work sheets. The name of the first worksheet varies, but the name of the second is called "stats".

I would like to pull from the "stats" worksheet B28:B58 and put that info in to a column in a new Excel file. Each file I pull from would get it's own column of data. Ideally also the header of the column that I'd be importing would be the name of the file it came from.

Is this possible?

You guys are the greatest!!! Thanks in advance.
 

A:Solved: Pulling from multiple Excel files

Hi
Try out this macro. It assumes that all files you are reading:
are 2007 or higher i.e. the extension is .xlsx
are all in the same file folder
are all closed at the time of reading (although it will still work if any are open)
Contain data in cells B28:B58 in the worksheet named "stats"

Code:

Sub getXLdata()
'
Dim fDir As String
Dim myFile As String
Dim CurCol As Integer
'
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Sheets(1).UsedRange.ClearContents
'
fDir = "C:\Users\username\dirname\" [SIZE=1][COLOR=red][B] 'Adjust to your directory location. String must end with backslash "\"[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]
myFile = Dir(fDir & "*.xlsx")
'
While myFile <> "" [SIZE=1][COLOR=red][B]'Loops through each xlsx file in the directory[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]
CurCol = CurCol + 1 [SIZE=1][COLOR=red][B]'Sets the column to read into[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]
