Acer :: How To Format Extensa 4220

Oct 21, 2009

I have had to fdisk my laptop because of various viruses it had and a keylogger. i want to put a copy of Xp on the machine but when i try it says it cant find any hard drives, it originally had vista home on it but i got no disks with it so i can't reinstall that either? The message i get when trying to install Xp is: "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.

Acer :: Extensa 5420 Should I Change Format From EISA To NTFS

Nov 5, 2008

In an Extensa 5420 the hard drive was formatted as EISA instead of NTFS. Is there a way to change it to NTFS without destroying what is on the drive? It is running okay, is there a disadvantage leaving it as EISA?

Acer :: 6920 - Format Whole HDD

Apr 8, 2010

I was under Windows Seven when i got some virus problems. i format my whole HDD and start to have some problems. sometimes the computer randomly stops. Often when i'm copying files or defrag the disk. there, my laptop seems very hot. it shutdown when I play (whatever the game played the temperature are (according to SpeedFan) about 100C))

I firstly think about dust. so i have clean by removing the trap at the bottom and cleaning the ventilation holes.

That change nothing. my computers stops 10 minutes after the game's started. but it boot right now after it stops, (i've head that in case of a too ward hardware the computer will not boot right now after it stops) metimes after a program ask a reboot and i say yes , the fan don't work at all after the reboot.

Acer :: 5920 Format

Aug 12, 2009

here we go......formated my laptop and removed XP, had vista on it at new but wiped it when i got it.

So i wiped it last night and reinstalled XP again, thought i had all the drivers but my device manager is showing Video Controller and Network Controller are not installed correctly.

Would the Network controller stop my wireless working because thats my main problem
getting my wireless set up. I even tried resorting back to Vista with the alt-F10 buttons but all its doing is bleaping.

Can i get it back to Vista, my daughter says she wants it and where exactly do i get the drivers i mentioned i'm missing.

Once windows xp is installed do i go to control panel and set up wireless ? if i remember i'm sure it all went on automatic the 1st time i wiped it.

Acer :: How To Format/partition New Hdd Using Recovery CD

Feb 5, 2009

how to partition my hdd?

(using Acer Recovery CD to install Win XP)

I have an Acer Ferrari 3000Lmi notebook.
I just replaced the hdd with a new one.
it's 80GB 5400 rpm, IDE
It's not formatted and it's not partitioned.
My notebook is an old model,
so I don't think there's a recovery partition and it doesn't have an e-empowering acer button, etc.
It only comes with Acer recovery CD's.

when I put the new hdd in, it's detected in bios,
so I installed Win XP Home using the Acer Recovery CD.
and it didn't have option to format or to partition my hdd there.
everything just ran automatically.
and now I have one C: drive.

Can anyone help me on how to partition my hdd ?
I prefer not to use partition magic/other programs to partition my hdd.
I don't know if I have DOS.
I don't mind installing XP all over again, I just don't know how to format/partition the hdd before using the recovery CD.

Acer :: How To Restore Or Format Hard Drive

Feb 15, 2010

My wifes Extensa 5620 got a virus. Office Depot removed it with MalBytes. I'm still leary of something being missed. I would really like to restore it to factory defaults.

When I go into Acer eRecovery Management I see pick the Restore tab at the bottom of the window.

Now I am given the choices to

1.Restore system factory default.

2.(Which is grayed out and option not avaialable) Restore form users backup

3.Recover from CD/DVD

4.Reinstall applaications/drivers.

So I pick 1. Restore system factory default.

Next I am asked for the empowering technology password. Well I don't have it and don't know how to get it. I would choose number 2. if it were an option. If I place the disk I made into the CD/DVD unit will the option become available? I tried option 3. and it said to place the restore disk inthe drive.

Acer :: How To Format My Aspire 5920 Without The Password

Mar 12, 2009

I recently had some trouble with my Acer Aspire 5920 notebook. A virus got through to it (luckily without any major damage).

I sent the notebook repairs and I already got it back and working...almost...completely as new.

I wanted to format the notebook and reinstall the necessary programs. This way I can get rid of all the stuff I don't need/want.

The problem is that eRecovery from the eEmpowerment tools needs a password to start the formatting. Normally if you don't fill in a password in the first place then there's no password needed when you want to format the system.

In my case, the notebook asks for the password anyway so my question is this:

How can I format my notebook (using eRecovery or another application) without the password?

ok i'm at work right now and was going to remove vista from my 6920 aspire to put on xp because i have vista. Thinking i wouldn't have a problem i simply used the Kill Disk program to format my drives. I put in my xp cd and it will not load because it says HDD not detected, I don't have a cd burner on my work computer but i do have a 4 Gb flash drive is there anything i can do to get it to load up windows xp, Been reading that there is something with XP not allowing install due to the laptop having SATA setup and xp won't work with that? Can anyone please help me. Hoping there is something i can do to maybe load the drivers from my flash drive then install the xp cd.

Acer :: Extensa Overheating

Apr 26, 2009

Ever since I bought this laptop I've had an issue of it shutting itself down. Almost always while watching youtube videos. I found out about the handy little tool called coretemp and I see my processors running about 68+ nearly all the time. When I have websites loaded that have flash animations, ads, videos (youtube), it only gets hotter and hotter. It nearly always reaches 90+ (Celsius) and then shuts down.

I read about it needing a bios update for many people who say they have the problem with the laptop screen going black, but I think mine is heat related.

My laptop runs around 68 when idle and when busy it gets hot. Right now I have Google Chrome open with two tabs, one is this webpage and the other is gmail and its running at 75 celsius. Performance tab in task manager says it has a processor load of only 1%.

I keep a watch on the temperature and as long as I start closing programs and windows when it reaches around 80 it will start to cool down. So as long as I can keep an eye on it the laptop will run fine for days with no problems. If I forget to check and it gets too hot it'll shut down. I'll check the logs and sure enough the last few lines of the last log file will look something like this ...

Why does the fan run so damn much? I know that the bottom of the laptop does not get hot like Compaq and Sony, but it is damn annoying. There seems to be two speeds, one that is low and runs silently, and the high...this is the problem.

Acer :: Extensa 5610 Not Seeing All 4GB Of RAM

Apr 22, 2009

I just bought 2x2gb ram from my Acer Extensa 5610 and my Windows 7 x64 can see it right, but only use 3gb. Resource monitor says the other 1gb is Hardware reserved. In the Bios theres an info saying extended memory 3gb. Is that what the problem is? coz its not something I can set in this version of bios.

Do i have to upgrade my bios? if so, to what version? The manual clearly says i can upgrade to 4gb. (extensa 5610 has intel 945 chipset)

Acer :: Extensa 4630G

Mar 12, 2009

Have you guys heard about Acer's Extensa line of products? Well, so far I've just seen them in Acer sites from Asia, and I was wondering how many people actually use them already.

Another thing, I was also looking for someone who particularly owns an Acer Extensa 4630G--the most recent budget one (I think) with Intel C2D T5800, ~4GB 667MHz RAM, I think with 320GB Harddrive, and ~nVidia 9300M GS~ (256MB dedicated)

For people who own this kind of notebook (or those with the 4630ZG, the one with the Pentium Dual Core instead of C2D), how does the notebook handle? Does it heat up easily? Does it perform well with relatively recent games/3D modelling applications etc.?

Acer :: Extensa Downgrade To XP

I just purchased a acer extensa 4630Z and it has vista home premium on it. I want to downgrade it to xp, but when i put the a oem xp cd in while the system is booting up it preloads all the xp files but then get a blue screen with error 0x0000007b. How can I get a xp cd that will support this laptop?

I know you can use nlite to make a custom xp cd but I cant seem to find the right drivers to do so. I seen some people add slipstream drivers for aspires but this is different.

Acer :: Extensa 5230

Jan 28, 2009

i find in this web more and very good information about notebooks, with this information can i upgrade the CPU of my Acer 5715Z from a T2370 to a T7500, and i know this chipset 965 can i ugprade more, but know i have a very good offer to buy a cheap notebook Acer Extensa 5230 with a Celeron M575, and put in this one my T7500 to upgrade this bad cpu celeron.

But, there's always a but, i search information in the web and i think this chipset is not compatible to upgrade a good CPU (not Celeron).

This is the information about notebook:

Acer :: Extensa 5220 Won't Turn On

May 24, 2009

I have an Acer extensa 5220 laptop, which suddenly decided this morning that it wont turn on any more! It was working perfectly fine, has good anti-virus, etc., and worked fine an hour before but now when it's turned on, the power button goes green and nothing else happens. It's not been dropped or banged, was not plugged into the mains at the time (but can that rule out a surge the last time it was plugged in?)There is not even a flicker on the screen, the fan doesn't come on, but I think the hard-drive hums. Does anyone have any idea what's wrong with it?

Acer :: Line Out Is Broken On My Extensa

Jan 11, 2010

I got an Acer Extensa 5420 a few months ago refurbished and at first everything seemed fine. A month or so later I noticed that the line out had a small crack in the middle of the green ring.. a little annoying but my headphones seemed to work fine so I just ignored it. After using the line out for a few months it's become more and more faulty. Now, when I plug in headphones no sound comes out, it doesn't even recognize anything is plugged in unless I have it turned at the exact right angle. I know the audio jack is just screwed up, but what options do I have to fix this problem?

Acer :: Extensa 4420- CPU Temps

Oct 13, 2008

I have the extensa 4420, today I was in class and I was just typing notes and I noticed that my cooling fan was quite noticable so I turned the fan always on function to "off" and the fan turned off and it was nice and quiet. i watched the temps hover around 38 but when the temps hit 41 (according to NHC) the fan kicked in at a good low speed. the NHC was setting the CPU to stay at 800mhz per core so I was wondering if that is a good temp? I have experience in using thermal paste, would that help lower the temps enough to stay under 41 degrees?
