Acer :: I Think Arcade Instanton Messed Up My Drive

Oct 1, 2008

i turn on my computer again and it goes to acer arcade instanton. i exit it and then when vista boots up it tells me to chkdsk. im suspicious but i skip it... when i login it tells me that my user profile is messed and thata bunch of stuff is corrupt. i then do chkdsk and luckily it manages to repair it and i still have my files. however all of my settings and user accounts are gone... also a lot of things dont feel right.

i think after backing up i might do a reinstall. just to confirm, if i use the recovery dvd, D:/ will not be touched right? (D:/ is where my files will be saved)

Acer :: Arcade Deluxe Users

Sep 23, 2008

I'm just wondering if AAD comes with the Cyberlink H.264 codec - the one that enables GPU decoding. Because if it does, I have a reason to install that thing back on my system.

Here's how you can check. Open up Windows Media Player. Right-click on the top bar, go to Help, then About Windows Media Player. Click the Technical Support Information link in that box, and your Internet browser will open with an HTML file with all your codecs. Save a copy of that HTML, upload it somewhere like RapidShare/MegaUpload, and post the link here.

I'll report back with my findings - if it means we don't need to buy CoreAVC or another decoder, I'm all for it.

Acer :: Arcade Deluxe // 5739g

Nov 21, 2009

i've recently bought an acer aspire 5739G and i've noticed that the notebook also boots up when i press the arcade deluxe key. After the boot screen with the acer logo i just get a blinking cursor in the top left corner of the screen.

I even tried booting like this with an audio CD or DVD inside, thinking it's some sort of multimedia mode, but with no luck.

Acer :: Aspire 5720- Keyboard Layout Messed Up

Apr 16, 2010

I restored my Acer Aspire 5720 laptop using the factory restore DVD . I used to be able to press Fn+MJKLUIO78, or Fn+9 to type the numbers 012345678, or 9 while holding the Fn key.

After I finished restore the laptop to the factory image, the Fn+M...9 keys didn't work anymore.

Instead of mapping the keys to 0..9, it mapped the keys to Home, Up, PgUp, Left, Right, End, Down, and PgDn.

So for example, if I press Fn+L, instead of "3", it gave me "PgDn". It was giving me "3" before I restored the factory image.

So recap, I used to be able to hold Fn and I could type the "blue" letters printed on the keyboard.

I don't think this is Vista problem because I boot the laptop to DOS, the keyboard mapping is the same.

I think when I press Alt-F10 to run the recovery, I must have pressed some other hidden key sequence to switch the keyboard profile by accident.

Acer :: Arcade Deluxe V2.6.7130 Trojan

Mar 12, 2010

I downloaded the latest updates for Acer Arcade Deluxe a couple of days ago, using the Live Update feature within the program, and noticed today that McAfee has quarantined two files related to this program.

The files are both located in c:program filesacer arcade deluxeplaymovievideofilter. The first is BCMDFILTER.DLL, this is detected as Artemis!2309D0D4349A (Trojan) and the other is CLDABCD.DLL, detected as Artemis!202C3E6FA905 (Trojan).

Can anyone advise on these files please? Are they trojans or are they legitimate? I have forwarded the files to McAfee and have no idea whether to allow these files or not.

Acer :: Arcade Has Trashed Aspire 5920

Oct 23, 2009

I have seen closed threads on this subject on this forum, but not found a "this worked" conclusion. However, I'm hoping that someone may know the answer, so here I go.

An accidental press (a cable fell on it) of the Acer Arcade button when the machine was turned off caused it to start up and install Acer Arcade (couldn't stop it installing) which appears to load in a cut down Windows XP shell in a separate partition and should, I'm told, switch back to the main VISTA environment on shutting down - but it doesn't! The machine just goes into hibernation mode!

I have searched the "net", spent a long time on the phone with a Technician, and basically nothing has worked - can get into the BIOS and have turned off D2D which was enabled, can't get to Windows Safe Mode, or VISTA. I can get into various forms of recovery options, but they can't find the operating system, etc etc!

I'm facing full recovery and losing everything that hasn't been backed up and spending ages reinstalling everything, which I don't want to have to do if I can help it! Also, I could go through this whole process and still risk the same thing happening again in the future, which is really frightening! So if I have to do that does anybody know of any way I could disable this awful button afterwards - this is supposed to be a working laptop, not a games and video toy!

Acer :: 8935g Install Xp And Boot From Arcade Button

Mar 7, 2010

I've installed a second hd in my 8935g for an xp install, and got a couple of q's before I get stuck in.

1. is there way to install windows XP as a "genuine" acer oem install "like the "genuine win 7 install procedure"?

2. And is there info on ways to recreate the "acer arcade" button usage to boot win 7 and a full xp from the new disc depending on wether I press power button or media button.?

I've done some searching and found some good info, especially re ACHI slipstreaming, but haven't found anyone using the arcade button for an alternative boot method (other than to force different video card in win 7)

Acer :: Unexpected Error From The Acer Arcade And It Won't Run

Jan 10, 2009

Was using the Acer Arcade and was informed about the latest patch by the Live Update.

I ran the install patch and during install the McAfee informed me that two of the files were trojams and had to be removed. The files were CL26934.RRA and CLDO7416.RRA, so now when I stick my blu-ray into the drive I get an unexpected error from the Acer Arcade and it won't run.

So where did the files go, and why would ACER put out a patch that conflicts with the pre-installed anti-virus?

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6565us Messed Up

Aug 17, 2009

The soundcard just turned off, the computer crashed and turned off. When it was back up, the soundcard could not be founded anymore, and i've got like fourty "Unknow Device on High Definition Audio Bus" on my device manager.

Like that:

I've tried everything, used all the recovery options from hp, even the restoration to the recorded image of the system. Tried to reinstall all drivers and nothing solved.

The system kept throwing windows nonstop. Like that:

So, what i did was just disabling the High Definition Audio Bus on System Device, and bought an Usb external sound card. Ok, its working great, BUT, i obviously dont get any sounds from the internal notebook speaker or microphone. And neither the mute light, on quickplay buttons, works. Its red all the time. Muted or not.

BUT, i want to give this notebook to my wife, but i still use this external soundcard for my musical recordings. So i really needed to figure out a way to solve this. I've contacted the HP Support Staff, none of them could help me. Warranty was over months before the problem. Obvioulsy.

So I did, and entered a key number and now, I cannot connect with anything, or to LIVE.

Sony :: Vaio Graphics Card Is Messed Up

Aug 12, 2009

I've got a Sony Vaio FE model. The screen, processor, ram, wifi, etc. all work well except the graphics card (geforce go 7600). I can get my computer working but only at a resolution of 640x480. If I go to display properties and increase the resolution, the screen shows a bunch of white lines all across for a second and then restarts.

Its very hard to use a pc at that resolution! Sometimes I can change it to 1280x800 if i get the computer hot enough (weird, i know) but then (i guess) as soon as it starts to cool down the screen goes blank (after some time it will go back to 640x480 in 8-bit colour mode and show a nvidia nv4 error) and then I usually hold the power button to turn it off cuz I don't want to wait for the nv4 error which takes 10-15 mins.

HP/Compaq :: Messed With Belkin Adapter On Dv5t

Jul 13, 2009

I have an HP dv5t Notebook with a wireless card, Belkin. I dont know much about wireless adapters so it figures I would screw this up. I was trying to play with it to see if I could turn my wireless connection into working with my Xbox 360 (long story). To simplify things, I went into the Belkin standard IP address for utilities and enabled a "local access point." Since then, I have been unable to access internet or even access the Belkin menu to disable what I did!

HP/Compaq :: Messed Up My6910p After BIOS Update

Nov 15, 2009

I thought it was a good idea to update my BIOS from F0.A to F17.

I am now stuck with the fan constant running and I have checked some other threads and found that you can switch this off in the BIOS.

I have checked and it is already switched off!

I tried to restore to go back to the old BIOS but it seems I am f****d. Not possible.

Are there tricks to go back to the original firmware.

Are there third party software that can stop the fan turning all the time.

Apple :: I Messed Up My Bootcamp Partition And Now It Won't Delete

Apr 11, 2009

I wanted to install vista. I did the normal bootcamp procedure but forgot and extracted candy bar at the same time the partition was being created.after the partition was created and the message appeared telling me to insert my windows cd appeared, my mac froze. I held down the power button and forced shut it down. I switched it on again and windows setup started. Everything went on fine and i booted in windows fine. However , when i wanted to enter my os x partition, it would start and go up to the part where the rotating circle would appear. It continued rotating for a long time and then restarted my mac. I tried again several times and it did this. I then booted my mac from the os x install dvd and selected install os x on the windows partition. Setup failed. I launch disk utility and verify and repair disk partition (There was no problem when i did disk check). I restarted my mac and everything booted fine. I now have a new partition labeled "mac os x". I launched bootcamp manager and tried to restore my disk and get the error: "The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition: The startup disk must be formatted as a single mac os extended (journaled) volume or already partitoned by Bootcamp Assistant for installing Windows".

How do i format it in this format? Do i have to use the setup disk again or do i use disk utility?

HP/Compaq :: Have I Messed Up Any Chance Of Extended Warrenty By Removing Motherboard

Jan 28, 2010

DV9000 series, when you press the power, the lights blink ad then it powers off. So i dissembled it ad removed the motherboard to have a look, the 1 year warrenty had expired.

Now it seems this is a common problem with this series and seems to always point to a bad motherboard, bad chipset or graphics on the board.

Now it will be obvious i had opened it up as i removed a cable that was taped to the board. If there is an extended warrenty for this problem am i screwed?

Acer :: Laptop Refuses To Detect Hard Drive With CD Drive In

Dec 28, 2009

Laptop is an Acer Aspire 1640. 2.26GHz, 2gb RAM.

Laptop was working fine with the factory Hitachi HTS541680J9AT00 80gb drive.

I purchased a Samsung HM160HC 160gb drive as it's supposed to be the fastest PATA laptop drive available.

I put it in and the laptop just kept saying "no operating system found" with the XP disk in the drive.

I tried several optical drives and got the same issue with all of them.

I then hooked a USB optical drive up and it wouldn't boot from it.

I removed the internal optical drive and the system then booted from the USB drive and loaded Windows fine.

I just assumed it was a fluke and once Windows was done loading I removed the USB drive, installed the factory internal optical again and turned it on...

"No operating system found".

This is where I'm stuck. If I remove the optical the system boots into Windows fine. There were no issues like this with the other hard drive.

I have tried setting the hard drive as Master, Slave, and Cable Select with no change.

Laptop has the newest BIOS.

Samsung does not offer firmware updates on their hard drives.

Acer :: 5315 Upgrade Drive Clone To Larger Drive

Oct 2, 2008

I gained a lot of information from the 5315 CPU Upgrade Thread. I'd particularly like to thank BigOzone, Hoggie and Quilty997. There are many others but information from the above formed the basis of my upgrade.

Other information I've collected from other parts in the forum.

The specification of the laptop was as follows.

Acer Aspire 5315
Celeron 550 2.0Ghz (eek)
1gb of Ram
Vista Home Basic (double eek)
Atheros Wireless Card
80Gb Toshiba Hard Disk

The new Specification is.

Core2Duo T7500 2.2Ghz 800 Mhz Front Side Bus 4Mb Cache
3Gb of Crucial Ram
Vista Home Basic (No Choice At the Minute)
Intel 4965 AGN Wireless Card
200Gb Hitachi Hard Disk

The CPU Upgrade I won't actually cover, not necessary when there is a fantastic sticky at the top of this forum. The Upgrade took about 15 minutes, but the actual swap took about 5 minutes or so, I was very anal about cleaning the heatsink and applying AS5. I think the biggest scare was the door unerneath, quite tricky to get off and put back on without damaging the tabs.

My main focus is the hard drive swap, whilst maintaining all the eRecovery software. For this I use Acronis True Image Home, I am aware that the trial can be downloaded or users obtain by other means, can I just say BUY IT as it only cost me 17 from Amazon.co.uk and as usual it was cheaper in the US. The biggest reason for buying is that some features are not available in the trial. I also bought a Laptop SATA External Drive Holder and boy was I glad I did......................
