Acer :: How To Format My Aspire 5920 Without The Password
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?
Acer :: 6920 Aspire - Simply Used The Kill Disk Program To Format My Drives
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 :: 5920 Format
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 :: 6920 - Format Whole HDD
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 100°C))
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 :: How To Format Extensa 4220
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 :: 4720 Format And Reload
I am formatting my friends hard drive and loading Windows. He wants only the basic drivers for teh notebook and none of the other Acer crap that pre installed. Can anyone tell me what these basic drivers are? Also I need to know if there is a correct order to install them in. I'm very familiar with Dell's and there is a specific order for them, but this is the first Acer I've done.
Acer :: How To Restore Or Format Hard Drive
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
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/partition New Hdd Using Recovery CD
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 :: 5634WLMi - Format And Reinstall Vista
I am trying to fix my dads notebook, its been running very slow lately and I want to format and reinstall Vista for him, however has most of you may know, it's really hard to find notebook drivers (well in my case it is), so does anyone know where I can find drivers for me dads 5634WLMi?
I have tryed Acer's website but they are either for 5630 or 5680/90, or can I use the 5630 drivers on this?
Acer :: Delete Vista Partitions, Format Hard Drive, Reinstall Vista ...
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.
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...
Acer :: Ferrari 4000 Missing "Format" Option In DVD Drive Property
When I click on the DVD-RAM drive (E, there is no "Format" option available (missing).
That means that when inserting a blank DVD or CD media in the drive, I cannot format using the operating system format option; however, I can burn DVDs under other (3rd party) media editing programs.
How can I add the "Format" onto the list of other available options such as Eject etc.
By the way, the Operating System is Windows XP 64 bit (with all the latest updates) installed on a Ferrari 4000.
The DVD Drive make is MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-845S with the FD-200 firmware installed.
Apple :: HDD Format
I am both a mac and windows (only for gaming related things) user. I use an external WD passport hard 500GB hard drive for all my data. Its formated to mac journaled. This is very good for mac related work because it can handle files over 4GB. However if i have a game patch or mod I want to download in OSX and transfer over to windows via my external ( windows partition is formated in ntfs , because it was not working in fat32, i tried like 9 times) it is impossible because windows can not understand the hard drive is thier ( I have tried software to correct this but im very skeptical because it killed the file system and everything became corrupted)
I know its complicated but that was the first issue. The second issue is, I want to buy a new HDD thats fat 32. I want to keep it that way because when i formated this one to mac, it started acting a little crazy and could die any day now i think. It makes random beeps once a day and a grinding noise. This started happing right after i formated to mac journaled.

Dell :: Use A Desktop To Format Notebook Drive?
I want to use my desktop to install XP on a notebook drive that I will then put in an Insiron 8000 notebook. It's too long to explain why I don't just use the notebook to do this.
So, is it possible to do with the PC? I assume I have to get a special type of connecting cable, but can it power the external notebook drive and can the data transfer handle a Windows full install and, finally, from where on the PC do I connect it?

HP/Compaq :: Bestlaptop Setup For AVCHD Format

HP/Compaq :: Battery Life Worse After Format
Got a new laptop a few days back (6730b), which is alot nicer than the nx7400 i had. When i got it, it came with vista business and a whole load of 'bloatware' i didnt need. so i did as i normally do and formatted the pc and re-installed vista (although XP was very tempting). I finally got round to getting everything how i want it but i've realised since formatting the battery life seems to be less than it used to be....
before the format, when the battery was full it would say i had 4hrs+ of battery life (i even remember seeing it say 5hrs once). Now it says 2hr 30 mins on 'HP optimized', 2hr 45 on power save!
Dell :: Format & Reinstall From Recovery Partition
I've been reading threads and guides (1, 2) on how to format and reinstall, but I have one more question:
My friend owns an Inspiron but lost his recovery DVDs. In order to format his C: and reinstall Windows from the recovery partition, he should hit Ctrl+F11 at Dell logo and follow instrucions to format?
Dell :: System Restore Vs Format/Clean Install
i have a quick question... i'm running an xps 1530 (first run) with a 2.2 dual core, 4gb ram, 7200 rpm drive, and the 8600 GT card.
i today ran a system restore to clean everything up, with a format. is that as good as a full format/reinstall of vista? it seems to be running pretty well.
my main question is this... i've gotten back into WoW, and i'm having some hitching running it on max settings... should i have that issue? i feel like this should completely destroy that game.
HP/Compaq :: HDX16 Format,how To Install The Default Programs
I got the HP HDX16 and I want to change the OS to Vista Ultimate 64 or Windows 7 64bit RC.
Thing is, I didnt find the programs that came with the notebook at the HP website. For example, Microsoft Works, Cyberlink DVD Suite, HP recovery manager etc.
Is there any way to install them after the format? Or do I have to get stuck with Home Premium?
Apple :: Safari Crashes And FF Won't Format Correctly
I've been having major problems browsing the internet lately. Safari won't stay open for more than 2 minutes without crashing and Firefox will half the time not format web pages correctly. For example, as I'm typing this in FF right now, in my tool bar up above this text box I have the boxes with bold, italics and underline options showing, but I can't select them. Even worse, the rest of where boxes should be just have text, for example it says Align Left, Align Center and Align Right instead of having selectable boxes. What is up with my browsers?
HP/Compaq :: HP Dv7 Remote Control Won't Work After Format
When I first got my HP DV7-1285dx with Vista (64) the remote control that came with it was working fine. I upgraded to the Windows 7 beta when it came out (I didn't do a clean install) and the remote was still working and kept working throughout the several beta upgrades I did later (to newer beta versions). However when the Windows 7 RC was released earlier this week I decided to do a clean install so I backed up the important drivers and files and did a clean Windows 7 install. After that my HP remote simply stopped working, the laptop won't respond to it at all (not in Media Center and not in anything else). I was able to reinstall all the drivers (from the backup) except for one which shows as "Unknown driver" in Device Manager, and when I do a driver update and point Windows to the folder including my backed up drivers, it does recognize the device as the "HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor" but says it encountered an error installing the driver software since it "couldn't find the file specified."
I don't know if this "Unknown driver" is in anyway connected to the Remote Control problem. I have no other problems showing in device manager by the way.
Also in an unrelated matter, I am trying to reinstall the MediaSmart software the came with the laptop. I downloaded the packages from the HP website but they won't install (since they're only update packages and not standalone installers I guess) so is there any way to reinstall the MediaSmart software from the recovery discs/partition?
HP/Compaq :: Want To Clean Up/format Presario C310 -- Use Recovery Disks Or Recovery Partition?
I’ve just done a clean install of my Dell Vostro -- reinstalling vista and removing the recovery partition in the process. Outcome = a ‘cleaner’ machine with none of the preinstalled bloatware/c**p from Dell. (first time I’ve done anything like this, but followed a brill guide in the Dell section of this forum ).
I’m about to tackle my Mums Compaq Presario C310EA. The aim is to remove all the rubbish she has accumulated over the years, incl any spyware/ adware she may have, and generally have a bit of a clean sweep…. hopefully resulting in a faster laptop. I’m backing up her data, and moving some of my Dad’s stuff somewhere else.
Basically I want to clean up as much as poss, but unfortunately she has no xp disk, just the recovery disks (cds) she burned when she first got the laptop.
As she has no xp disk I guess the best I can hope for is to reset the laptop to the factory settings (?) .. not ideal, but I don’t think the (factory set) bloatware is too much of an issue for her – she’s not a heavy user.
Should I use the recovery partition for this, or do I need to use the cds she burned? .
I’d like to know the best approach – and can’t seem to find a set of instructions to follow.
Acer :: The Aspire Or The Aspire Timeline
I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.
The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?
Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:
Aspire Timeline 5810-4784
My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?
Acer :: Aspire 8930G-644G32MN Or The Aspire 8930G-584G32BN
Seeing as I pretty much made up my mind and want to buy a Acer Aspire 8930G, I hope somebody here can give me some specific advice. Maybe someone who owns one of the laptops (I hope there aren't any differences, depending on the country you live in)
I am looking at the Acer Aspire 8930G-644G32MN or the ACER Aspire 8930G-584G32BN. The first one is 300 Euro's cheaper than the last one. Besides that big difference I can't seem to find any. Did I miss some specific diffence, like do they both have Surround Sound and a BluRay drive and a full HD screen? Does any of the two support DVB-T? Do they both have a 9600 GT graphics card?
The reason why I ask is because I looked through, I don't know how many internetsites with specs and it's amazing how they all differ, obviously mainly copied and pasted from other internetsites. And I really want to get the right one and not regret my purchase after a while.
Acer :: Aspire 6935g3333333333333333
I am tkinking about getting a better CPU and GPU for my Laptop. I am thinking about upgrading my T6400 to T9400 and get rid of my 9600GS and upgrade it to something more powerful. I don't have a problem with CPU upgrade but I have never done the GPU. Since it is a MXM-II graphic card how difficult can it be to install something different? Are you able to swap between NVIDIA and ATI cards?Z
Acer :: Aspire 1501LMi
I have an Acer Aspire 1501LMi laptop. I recently purchased 2gb ram for it (2x1gb sticks) through crucial UK, using their tool to help determine the ram that you need.
For some reason, I have been unable to use both sticks together though? It appeared to crash windows on boot up, and thinking there may be some sort of weird configuration with windows which is causing this, I have attempted to reinstall but have found it crashes during the install too. (I am running windows XP Pro with SP3). Strangely though, it DOES work fine if I use either of the 1gb sticks along with a 512mb stick of ram? Plus each Ram stick has been tested individually and found to be functioning correctly!
I have contacted Crucial about this, and they have also replaced both of the sticks of ram. Unfortunately, the same thing continues to happens?
My Acer bios version is 1.06. My Phoenix Bios version is "PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.0", however, going onto Phoenix's website, the newest version is "PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.1". Whilst on the Phoenix website, I noticed that they link to a website offering an update service called eSupport.com. I ran there tool, and it suggested i can get the newer PhoenixBios version for my laptop but you have to pay for it? Acers website only has my current version 1.06 of the acer 1500 bios.
Does anyone have any experience of this problem, or does anyone have any experience of running PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.1 on an Aspire 1501LMi laptop?
Acer :: Aspire Shutting Off
i have an acer aspire 5100 series everything is great on it except i have this weird problem, when i connect to my wireless network after is says connected i open the iexplorer and then the laptop shuts off. Thats the only time it does that, if i dont connect to the internet it works fine and never turns off. First i thought it was overheating but i bought those fans that go under the laptops and still shuts off when i connect to my wireless network. Anyone have any idead of what could be causing this?
Acer :: Aspire 8920
I am fairly certain I will be getting the Acer Aspire 8920 once I can sell my old laptop (14") for a fairly decent price.
But I am struggling of which version of 8920 I should get. Two caught my attention though...
1) Price: $1649: 2.5GHz CPU; 4 GB memory; 320GB; Nvidia 9500M GS
2) Price: $1170: 2.0GHz CPU; 4 GB memory; 320GB; Radeon HD 3650
As far as I am concerned; the two graphic cards are not hugely different in performance. Is that $480 difference solely for CPU worth it?
I am not a huge gamer, but I do play some games occasionally and don't mind being blown away by the photo-realistic graphics in the future.
So the thing is, with the 2.5GHz, I may be able to swap with a much better graphics card and able able to play games with awesome graphic a few years down the road; whereas, with only 2.0GHz CPU, you can't really do much.
Acer :: New Aspire 6930G
So far I think its a great notebook for the price. I have'nt ran into any serious issues.
1. Sound - When playing music the sound is ok, However with Bluray or DVDs the sound is very low, even on 100% volume level. I tested the Bluray disc that came with it and the DVD to Twister, and in a quiet room its too low to capture all the details of the sound.
Agian music (ie.MP3s) sound fine, but movies are very low. I tried enabling the Dolby Pro IIx but that didn't help.
2. Webcam - How exactly do I turn it on/off. I found the crystal eye software that works with it automatically turning the camera on, but it has no options to do anything with it. No record button or anything.
I read that Windows Movie Maker can be used, but it does not detect the camera at all.
3. Acer Arcade Deluxe. - The album art of the music that I add does show up. I have them embedded in the idtags, They show up in Vista Media Center however.
4. This is probably more of a Vista issue, but I noticed the hard drive is constanly being access most of the time, and I can't figure out why.
I googled and learned about potential culprits like Superfetch, and Search Indexing, Auto defraging, and Malware Scanners. And after disabling all of that the drive still read/writes like crazy when its idle. In Task Manager, I've discover that a file lsass.exe and svchost.exe are the primary culprits, but I don't know if and how I should disable them.
Acer :: Aspire 8930G
Basically, the laptop can't find any wireless networks in range, normally it finds several.
I know the wireless router / internet are fine because if I plug the Ethernet cable into the laptop from the router, the laptop goes online and likewise my old laptop will connect to the internet via wireless straight away.
On my new laptop, I've tried several ways to make it find the router but all it says is it can't find anything. I've clicked diagnosis why it can't find anything and it comes up with wireless is currently OFF and needs turning on by a button normally found on the top or side of the laptop.
I've clicked the button and it's 100% on, yet it keeps telling me it's not. The orange wireless light which normally comes on when it is connected isn't coming on either.
Any ideas? I've restarted the laptop and reset the router but nothing and I haven't changed anything, it just went off last night whilst on MSN and browsing eBay.
It's running Windows Vista and using Intel(R) Wireless Wifi Link 5100.
I've tried everything I can think off but end result is always it can't find any networks.

I want to run xp on this pre-installed vista home basic laptop and to cut a long story short have installed xp in Sata Mode: Ide because all the other methods tried ie:nlite slipstreaming have not worked for me
Now I have xp working I would like to enable AHCI mode in the bios but the various tutorials Ive looked at so far have been unsuccessful.
Has anyone who has this model Aspire 7730 been successful in this procedure or knows a way that has worked for others?
I repeat that this should be a procedure that is Aspire 7730 specific as I feel this is the key.
Acer :: Aspire 6930
I've just purchased an Acer Aspire 6930. It came with an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD and a HDMI out port. The weird thing is that if I can't play HD-DVDs or BlueRay discs, then what's the point of having it? Can anyone tell me why they setup that way?
Acer :: Aspire One Processor
I bought an Aspire One at Costco with an 11.6" screen. I love the extra real estate, however I am concerned about the processor, which is only 1.25gig. I have the option of taking this machine back. I did not realize that this was not a 1.6gig processor when I purchased it. Anyone have any experience with this model?
