Acer :: Aspire 5000 And Norton Delete

Sep 14, 2007

My parents have an Aspire 5000 that they use solely for internet browsing. It came with Norton Internet Security 2005, but my dad wants to install a different anti-virus program. The problem is every time we try to delete Norton through the Add/Remove, the only thing that happens is a window will pop up for a fraction of a second and then disappear. It refuses to be deleted.

There are multiple programs in there for Norton including LiveReg and LiveUpdate as well as the Internet Security. The only one that seems to be able to be deleted is LiveUpdate. Is there an or/der of deleting these programs that I have to follow to make sure they will actually delete? Does anyone else have this issue?

I personally use free AVG and never have any issues. It seems Norton and McAfee cause more problems than they fix.

Acer :: Aspire 5000 Series- Different Recovery

May 21, 2009

I had an Acer Aspire in the 5000 series. A drink got spilled on the keyboard and I cut the power to the unit immediately. The motherboard was fried anyway, but the hard drive was salvageable. I had it put in a USB case to access the data as an external hard drive when I needed it. I had trouble with permissions on some folders and documents at times, but I was generally able to access what I needed.

A couple of weeks ago I opened a folder on the external hard drive that I hadn't been to since I replaced my notebook. I forgot what happened at the time, but I was called out of the office. Since then, I'm unable to read the USB hard drive at all. I get an error message that says "E Drive Not Accessible. Folder or Directory is Corrupt & Can Not Be Accessed". Every recovery solution I've found is for an internal hard drive. Will I need to try to put it in my current Aspire 6920 to do a directory repair/recovery? Is there a way to recover it externally without sending it out to a data recovery service?

Acer :: Aspire 5000 Series (5003 WLMi)

Sep 28, 2008

So my g/f has bought this laptop from her brother for £100 and upon this he did tell us the battery is dead and the charger he is using ins't the official charger but the laptop works.

Upon getting the laptop I decided to try and make the battery last longer by discharging and charging it a few times fully, but this has just completely stopped the batery from working, fullstop.

So now I am having to run it off the power supply solely.

I have ordered a new battery from ebay and made sure it is the correct battery by checking the model of the laptop, model of the battery and not only that it's £15 cheaper then getting it from shops.

Dispite all that I still need to get a charger for this model, so I found one on ebay which said it was for the 5000 series but not my model, I emailed them and they confirmed to me that it wouldn't work for my laptop.

So now I am on the lookout for a charger for this laptop 5003WMLi but I don't know the model number for the charger so if anyone has an official charger for the 5003WLMi can they please post the model number so I can look for a cheap official charger.

Or if anyone knows what watt, voltage I need then I could perhaps get a charger to suit my needs................................

Acer Aspire V5 :: Delete Key Currently Isn't Working Correctly On Laptop

Sep 2, 2014

I own a Acer Aspire V5 laptop and noticed a problem with the delete key recently while I was using Microsoft Office Word. Whenever I pressed the delete key it wouldn't delete what I selected and instead opened up the Key Tips in the ribbon. After having my son look at it he couldn't figure out the problem as well, but he noticed that the Delete key was functioning in the same as the Alt key. How to get delete key working correctly again?

Acer :: How To Unhide And Delete Recovery Partition In Aspire 6920

Oct 3, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook which came with vista home premium in 64 bit installed. I have made Recovery disks (3 DVDs) and had resorted to factory defaults several times by using the DVDs and not by Alt+F10 (at that time I did not know about alt+f10). I now have removed the 64- bit vista home premium and have windows-7 Ultimate RTM, Vista Home Premium and XP Pro all in 32 bit in three separate partitions in one single hdd. I have also done BIOS upgrade from 1.06 to 1.14. I have SATA mode set to IDE instead of the default AHCI due to XP not functioning under AHCI interface.

My BIOS shows hdd pw frozen by default though I have removed the hdd and set the BIOS to default twice. I find the Vista Home Premium in 64 bit OEM is a real pain since it has a lot of third party softwares Ė free and sharewares Ė which I have to uninstall every time (more than 20 of them) and therefore I tried to delete the acers recovery partition which is of 18 GB size and my Notebook with 250 GB hdd shows only 232 GB.

However, the partition is hidden and I have tried to unhide and delete the recovery partition with a number of third party partition softwares like Paragon, partedit32, Easeus, Norton, acronis, G-parted, macrium reflect, all with no success!

Now I request the learned members to give me a solution that will work, in simple procedure explained, to unhide the acer recovery partition and deleting it without disturbing my present OSes installed on the three partitions. Macrium does not show the PQ Service/EISA partition.

Acer Aspire ES1-111M :: Can't Delete Recovery Partition To Free Up Disk Space

Dec 20, 2014

I've created a Factory Default Backup with a USB drive with Acer Recovery Management.  I see this message which tells me I can delete the recovery partion to free up disk space after I've created the backup but it never gives me the option to do so.
 
I DO get the option to remove the Driver Recovery Partition after backing it up to USB but not the 10GB Recovery Partition.  It's a a HUGE deal on a system that only has a 32GB hard drive.

Acer :: Ferrari 5000 Boot

Feb 14, 2010

I've had a ferrari 5000 for over a year now and never had any problems with it until today. When I power on my laptop it boots up to the Ferrari picture where it has the "Press F2 to enter setup" and it just stays there. I try and press F2 to enter set up but none of the keys on the keyboard seem to work. It just stays frozen on that picture.

I'm able to use the CD ROM but it still leaves me in the same place.

Apple :: Norton Internet Security 4 For Mac

Sep 16, 2009

I'm planning on getting NIS 4 (Mac Edition) for my MBP, which now has Snow Leopard. My question is on if anyone has NIS installed and if any major problems occur for you when running it. I read the FAQ page on Symantec's website and it states that several portions of NIS do not function in SL, but wondering if it causes other compatibility issues.

I know that lots of people claim Mac's don't need security software but I'm one of those people that are a bit paranoid when it comes to online interactions, especially since I do quite a few purchases on the Internet.

HP G7 Lockups :: BSOD After Installing Norton Update

Aug 15, 2014

Laptop experienced random and very frequent BSODs after an automatic Norton update. Tried everything but only removing Norton stopped the problem. Removed Norton several months ago without even one recurrence of the problem so reasonably certain the cause was the Norton. Myy question is what antivirus program is known to run reliably on the HP g7? Currently don't have one installed because I don't know wht will run.

Acer :: What To Delete From Hard Drive

Apr 23, 2009

The laptop is now 2 months old. I deleted all the games, but there is alot left over. After years of admin work on Win2k, and nothing comparable on Vista, I need advice on what I can safely delete and what I may, sooner or later, need.

Here is a list. Let me know what I can and should not delete. I know I have a factory default in a hidden partition. And note that once I delete something, further backups will be made without that software.

1) Welcome Center (Would be nice to get rid of for all users. But I am the only user on this system for the foreseeable future)

2) Windows Media Center - I may back up an audio CD or convert audio to WMA, I may make a back up of my DVDs, but I don't play CD's or DVDs.

3) Windows Photo Gallery. This is actually nice software, but the camera comes with its own, and I play any video CDs in my DVD player.

4) Extras and Upgrades - Anytime Upgrade, Marketplace, Windows Web Site. Beyond purchasing software, why would I use this?

5) Windows DVD maker - Does the Acer backup software use this? I'm still very happy with Nero, and this doesn't seem easy to use.

6) Windows Movie Maker - I don't have a video camera to make movies with, and no inclination to make any at all. I suffered through my father's home movies. - Never again.

7) Live Messenger Download. - I'm not an online chatterer. What else would I need this for? IS this needed by Live Meeting?

8) Windows Meeting Space - I would use this very rarely if at all, and certainly not in the foreseeable future. Live meeting would NOT need this as I understand.

9) Windows Sidebar - From what I read about it, it doesn't seem needed. Aren't shortcuts the same?

10) Table PC - This isn't a tablet PC. But I like the fact that the right side of the touch-pad acts as a scrolling device. Is Tablet PC needed for that?

Acer :: PQSERVICE Partition ... Need It Or Delete It?

Sep 17, 2008

I recently bought an Acer 5610z from a family member that didn't need it anymore and it didn't come with any documentation or software save for the Vista OEM DVD. I proceeded to immediately wipe the HD and make a new install with Vista on a 20 GB partition and my remaining space reserved for programs and the like.

About 2 days later I realized I was missing space on my HD and realized there was a hidden partition for recovery called PQSERVICE. This is my first notebook and I had no idea how hard it is to find drivers and was having a hard time finding all the drivers and programs I needed (even from the manufacturer most of the drivers/utilities are for win XP).

I didn't make the recovery DVD's so I thought it might be possible to find the utilities or drivers on the hidden partition. I've unhidden it but I'm at a loss as to where to find them or if any drivers or utilities are even on it.

At this point do I even need the partition or can I delete it? I'd love to find someone with a copy of the DVD's at factory default settings but...

Acer :: Resize C Drive And Delete Hidden Partition

Apr 22, 2009

Can the C drive be enlarged?

Can the hidden partition be emptied and made "visible"?

My laptop is rather new, and I noted that the C drive was pretty full already. I deleted many software items and added other software that I needed, but there isn't much left anyway. The D drive is largely empty however. Can the C drive be repartitioned? Is any special software needed to do that?

The hidden partition seems not to be of much use after one has made the 3 DVD factory default backup. Can it be deleted? Made Visible and used for something else?

Dell :: Deals & ATI 5000 Series...

Mar 20, 2010

I am able to get the Studio XPS 1647 for $1634 ($1552 after Bing Cashback) that has the following:

- Intel Core i5 540M
- 4GB RAM
- 500 GB HDD
- RGBLED LCD display
- Blu-ray
- Bluetooth
- 6-cell battery

Would this be considered a good deal, or does anyone know of any other deals (e-value codes, coupon codes, etc.) for the Studio XPS 1647?

Also, I noticed some people are wanting the ATI 5000 series for the SXPS 16. What are the benefits of the 5000 series over the 4670 and what is the holdup? Does it require a new MB layout or something? I will mainly be using my computer for Internet/email, photo editing, and occasional HD video and DVD editing...I am not a PC gamer. So, would it worth waiting for the 5000 series? I'm sure the 4670 will suit me just fine, but I've read that it is 'last year's technology' and I generally like to try to get the latest available technology at the time of purchase...

Acer :: Delete Vista Partitions, Format Hard Drive, Reinstall Vista ...

Feb 21, 2009

Background:

A few days ago i bought an Acer 7730 laptop with Windows Vista pre-installed and no disks. After initial hesitation i have decided to keep vista and not downgrade to XP. After all there will be more service packs and tweaking should speed it up lots anyway.

However, i really want to get rid of the three partitions on the hard drive. There is only one physical hard drive but there are three partitions; a hidden 10GB one (EISA configuration) which from what i have gathered is now obsolete, a C: partition 111.44GB and a D: partition 111.44GB. There is no need to split a drive into several partitions now that we have the NTFS file system (unless you are using multiple operating systems of course - but i am not) so this is really annoying me.

I have made the 2 recovery DVD and the 1 applications/drivers DVD. I have an old WinXP disk that i can use to format the laptop if required.

Question:

Using the recovery disks (which i'm assuming contain a copy of my bought OEM Vista that was pre-installed on the laptop), can i delete the partitions, format the hard drive and install Vista onto a single c: partition?

I've done this exact process before with WinXP hundreds of times but i'm not sure whether i can do the same for Vista with just the 3 DVD mentioned...

Dell :: ATI Mobility Radeon 5000 Series In India

Mar 7, 2010

I'm new to this site and I'm quite surprised at the vastness of 'online' knowledge and happy to have learnt so much from the other threads ! Thanks !
But, I couldnt find any info on the new ATI 5000 series notebook GPU's in the Indian context. So
The DELL Studio series now comes with the HD 5470, which according to tha GPU benchmark isn't good enough for gaming. (The studio 17 here still carries the 4670, but, the better 5650 in UK) .
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Compute...s.13849.0.html
A studio
15 core i5-540M(2.53Ghz,4 Thread,turbo boost to 3.06 GHz, 3MB cache),
4GB 1333MHz DDR3,
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470,
320GB 7200rpm,
1080p LED Full-HD dispaly,
backlit keyboard & 1 year CCADP
costs INR 59,000 (excluding only delivery)
Should I go for it or wait for them to upgrade the studio 17 to the better 5650 graphics ? (portability isn't an issue for me so the 17 is fine too ). IMO the price is too high. But I would like to know the opinion of you folk ! Are there any better alternatives(I doubt !)................

Dell Inspiron 17 5000 :: Doesn't Power On - Completely Dead

Dec 28, 2014

For the last week i have noticed there is something wrong with my laptop. Every night i turn it off and in the morning it doesn't turn on at all its like the power button is broken or something. After 10 minutes of removing and putting the battery in( same with AC adapter) it finally starts without the battery only with the adapter plugged in. Until this morning of course - now it looks like its completely dead...

I have already done hard resets with 45 seconds holding the power button. Also the LED light on the charger is glowing just perfect so its not a problem with the adapter. I use my laptop for work and i have very important things there ...

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 :: Touchscreen Freezes For 3-10 Seconds At A Time Intermittently

Sep 27, 2014

I just received my Inspiron 15 5547 computer 2 days ago and one thing I noticed is that intermittently the touchscreen freezes for 3-10 seconds at a time, when this happens the computer is not frozen, I can still move the cursor with the touch pad or with a Bluetooth mouse.

I have contacted tech support and they advised to give it a few days to see if it continues to happen and confirm that the computer in fact does not freeze. I am wondering if this is normal for this model? Or if this is an actual hardware issue with my computer.

I also am wondering about getting a stylus to use on the screen for drawing. If I get one like the Adonit Jot or one like used for a Samsung Galaxy Note III would that work? Would it cause any damage to the screen?
