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.

My flex 15 was purchased second hand without a hard drive.  Turns out they took the hard drive SATA cable and bracket as well.  I found the service manual for the Flex 15 and have found the part numbers I need.  Lenovo parts representatives cannot find the part numbers.  These parts must exist somewhere!  Does anyone know a way I could order them?

Hello all! I recently purchased an Acer Aspire ES1-132 series laptop on a black friday deal from Very.co.uk (a UK based retailer). It's a great little laptop but as usual with these laptops, it comes with 32GB eMMC and i'm finding it a litle bit tight. http://acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/model/NX.GGLEK.001 The problem with the SD card reader is that it's very short, so a standard SD card pokes out quite a bit. I opened the bottom of the laptop to find space for a 2.5" drive but no SATA connection. There is what looks like a bespoke Acer connection type (I'm really hoping) which might be for converting to a standard SATA port (as I know Acer does do this). The problem is, there isn't much information abot this model, so it's impossible to find the right cable, if it even exists. I've taken a couple of pictures and uploaded them to Onedrive, would anyone mind checking and letting know if I can add a SATA drive and if so, what cable I need. https://1drv.ms/f/s!Al6UYtaggE5ol1Y69-waNTgVJtVd Thanks for your time! Danny

It has main SSD in M.2 slot and a 2.5" bay for normal size hard drives.
Now, yesterday when i opened it to put my new Samsung EVO 850 250GB in the bay I noticed that the cable & the tray are missing?  Contacted Dell support but nothing good came out of it.

Hi, I am trying to install a new SSD SATA drive (Crucial MX100 256M) as the second SATA drive and it will not connect via SATA. I have connected via USB with an adapter cable and that works fine but I want SATA for speed and so I can eventually use it as as system drive.  This is quite an old machine, I think bought in 2007, running Vista (Vista had just come out when I bought it).  When I look at the Standard CMOS Features in BIOS on my system it shows: >IDE Channel 0 Master - Hitachi DVD drive>IDE Channel 0 Slave - [None]>IDE Channel 1 Master - Current HDD (plugged into SATA1 port on motherboard)>IDE Channel 1 Slave - [None] If I look at the Aspire SA90 AcerPower S290_SG.pdf it shows  >IDE Channel 0 Master - DVD drive>IDE Channel 0 Slave - [None]>SATA Channel 1 Master [None]>SATA Channel 2 Master [None] Why am I not seeing my disk drives as SATA?

Wrong drivers. Use the Intel F6 drivers.

Intel F6 Drivers

Method 1: to 4:


Uses the Win XP CD.

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware on the manufacturer's web site.
If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
OR
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

Dear friends,

I am having an unexpected issue with my Acer Aspire 5517, I was booting it up haven't used it in about a week or two and I figured I would start it up and give it a Malwarebytes full scan as well as a Microsoft Security Essentials scan. The scans were both about 4 hours in and I logged on to skype because I had an interview to attend and after saying Hello to the person I was being interviewed by I received the blue screen of death and it rebooted to bios without giving me a chance to read the blue screen.

Now all I can get is the following after Bios:

It sounds like your computer is trying to boot from network.

The first thing I'd probably check is your BIOS setup under Lannet and disabled it.

It may be trying to look for a network drive before starting from your local devices.

I have an acer aspire idea 500 which I purchased a year ago and was connected to a CRT via SCART. I now have a Pioneer PDP-506XDE but the system refuses to boot when connected using the HDMI lead [even when the Plasma is turned off!]. It does connect via SCART and once booted, I can plug in the HDMI lead and view the Plasma as expected. I have suggested to Acer, that it is a problem with their BIOS but they say 'We are unable to support compatibility issues with 3rd party devices.' and 'We would not be able to provide information on how to update the bios on your machine. If the upgrade is performed incorrectly, this would void the warranty. 'Any suggestions on what I can do?Thanks

Later ThinkCentres do the same thing (see this thread.)  Since this is non-standard, these power cables are Lenovo specific and should be available as a replacement part, but perhaps a company like ModDIY (which makes the 24-pin to 14 and 10-pin adapters to enable the installation of after-market power supplies) may make replacements also.

Because mine shipped with an M.2 drive, it doesn't have a bracket or what appears to be the needed cable to attach it to the motherboard.  There is a spot inside the case to put a 2.5" drive, but without the bracket and cable you can't do it.

Hi, I am running Windows 8.1, and a couple of days back, my computer which was running smoothly, went to the blue screen. It gave the error: default boot device missing or boot failed. Press Enter to choose the bootable device. However, when I press enter, there are no options to choose from, no list. I am assuming this is a BIOS error (I hate SSDs now) since I did not further update my BIOS from v2.05.  Pressing F2 during boot does nothing, I will try to press F12 and see if that gives me boot options. I have also made a USB BIOS bootable drive. However, I do not know how to proceed (a novice). Can anyone please advise, please tell me, if possible, a few options, as the first option generally never works (personal view that things are not that easy). Thanks a lot in advance. SusmitP.S. If you need any further system information, kindly let me know.

if F2 doesn't work, connect your USB bootable pen, reboot and press F12.you can try to press ALT+F10 at boot and check if Acer erecovery works. if this doesn't work, probably the SSD died, if you are under warranty, i suggest you to contact the Acer support service.

I have had an Acer Aspire E1-532P-4819 for about six months. I have only had two problems with it. The first is the frequency of screws falling out of the bottom of the laptop and getting lost. I am currently missing five screws from the bottom of the laptop, which I have to be extremely cautious with to prevent it opening in a way that it is not meant to open. I need to know what size screw to order for replacement. My second problem, which may or may not be related, is that the computer will randomly cut off, while almost fully charged, with no warning whatsoever. This does not happen when it is on the charger, but when it does happen, it won't turn back on until it is on the charger again. I don't want to try to replace parts for a diagnosis that I make myself, so if this sounds like a problem that you can resolve with an answer off of the top of your head, please let me hear it. If not, carrying the charger along with me when I have the laptop is not a big deal.Thank you.

The cutting off on battery sounds like a bad battery.Turn off the laptop, unplug power and take out battery.Hold power switch for 30 seconds, release and plug in power. Turn on laptop and plug in battery.Charge. See if reported charge is different after you do this.I'm pretty sure this is the right screw. _M2.5x8.png ?32 KB

Hi another newbie here,

Just installed windows 7 pro 64bit to my machine and I have a driver error for coprocessor saying it is missing code 28.

I have gone through your forums and went to the acer site to download drivers. When I select make model and OS the only driver acer think I need (and offer) are the sound drivers which I installed anyway.

This however does not solve my issue.

I called acer support who passed the buck and said "contact windows"

I am not very technically minded when it comes to PCs can anyone provide me with a link to the driver I need so I can download the thing and install it.

A recap

Hi,
Got an Acer Aspire with a failed WD HD. I got a replacement drive and ran into problems installing Windows Xp from a retail disk so I ordered the recovery CDs from Acer.

When I received them I went through the three CD set without apparent difficulty but when I rebooted on conclusion I got "missing boot device."

To verify nothing arcane was wrong with the drive I put it into a Dell laptop and installed Xp without difficulty. But when I tried to boot the Acer from that drive, same problem - missing boot disk.

Back to Acer support where they directed me to a proprietary disk formatter in an ISO download. I DLed and burned it. It booted, formatted the drive and went through the three other recovery CDs once again, same result.

I now have the WD hard drive removed and contained in an external drive bay where I can see all the files easily. It appears all the recovered Windows files are as they should be, but I may be missing something.

Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Not spyware (for once) - missing boot device on Acer Aspire D150

After a bit of searching, I think the hd in your netbook is a SATA. Since XP doesn't include drivers for SATA drives, the driver needs to be loaded before windows is installed.

Contact Acer and tell them you need SATA drivers to be able to install XP and get the drive seen. If the drivers are slipstreamed into the three recovery CDs, then I'm not sure what the problem is.

I have a T61, model 6459-CTO, with an NVidia N140 graphics chip.  After bringing it home from a repair shop, I'm now having trouble with sudden system shutdown.  Screen goes black, all the lights go out on the display bezel, and pressing the power button does nothing.  I have to disconnect power and unplug the battery, then plug it back in again.  Then it will power back on and boot up normally. I have found that the shutdown happens when the GPU overheats, which happens most often when I play video -- mpg videos, YouTubes, DVD movies, etc.  I've been told that sudden shutdown wouldn't normally be a symptom of GPU overheat, but maybe the chipset is overheating?  I think it shares the same attachment to the fan assemblyl. With the aid of the hardware maintenance manual, I disassembled it far enough to see the fan.  I was surprised to see that one of the brackets shown in the maintenance manual is missing.  I also see that one of the screws for the lower bracket is missing See photographs here. I am wondering, was that upper bracket lost by the repair shop, or was it never there in the first place?  Has anyone seen a T61 that was factory assembled with only one bracket and only one screw in that bracket? Thanks, Allan 

Answer:Fan bracket missing? or designed out?

the repair shop must have forgot to put everything back in place, you should call them up. It is unlikely that the laptop was shipped that way, it would be more probable that the repair shop did not do a proper job.

Can someone assist me in finding out which option is best?

Should I use this Amazon.com: Monoprice 107637 1 Port Internal SATA to eSATA Bracket (107637): Computers & Accessories

or something like this: PCI Express SATA III Card - PCIe SATA 6Gbps | StarTech.com

Will the latter perform as fast as the former? (Or will the former even work given the lengths of the cables I have to use?)

Also, I'm getting really confused when it comes to the maximum length of the sata to esata. The esata bracket comes with a 20 inch cable... and the esata cable that comes with my external drive is about 20 inches. That makes an even 40 inches. I know the maximum sata length is 40 inches... and I don't want this 40 inch chain causing corruption.....

my first thought was a motherboard fault, which it may well be but try the above first, if nothing else you can eliminate three things as possible faults in the mean time.

AXC= Aspire XCAspire AXC = Aspire Aspire XC the initial A is just an abbreviation for Aspire. you can check it on the acer support site, searching with model number AXC gives you nothing, searching with XC gives you the correct model, so you must use XC.

Answer:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

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.

Hi!

Any thoughts will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Acer Aspire E5-473-35TX or Acer Aspire V15 Nitro ...

Boy, those are two very different machines! The first one is very handy if you are carrying the laptop with you most of the time, especially if you are switching between carrying it, using it as a laptop and using it as a tablet fairly often. The detriment is that the screen is small, only 10 inch. The second one is a lot more powerful and larger, but it will be more of a hassle to carry (you will want a backpack or briefcase). It's better suited if you are traveling between locations and want to set it up for extended use at each destination. You are going to be less likely to want to pull it out for ten minutes of quick web surfing.

I got my Samsung 850 Pro and it Does work at SATA III speeds getting some 530mb/s reads. Thanks for help. (Also, I don't know why this thread was moved to Chromebooks, as Chromebooks didn't exist when this laptop was made. =P  Perhaps under the new layout, Legacy laptops would be a better fit.) Thanks again.

Hi i have a Del Dimension 3000 with motherboard number E210882 and i need to change the factory  GREY FLAT CABLE TO A SATA CABLE SO I CAN USE A NEWER HDD but i don't kinow what this cable would be called or where i can find it.there are 39 pins in the motherboard and no SATA connectors in the MOBO just IDE connectors.
I'd appreciate your help on this!
Tech1126

Answer:Switching from an IDE cable to an SATA cable

There is no way to use a cable to install a SATA drive on a mainboard with no SATA support.
You'll need to install a PCI SATA controller (and you'll also need a MOLEX to SATA power adapter for the drive -- it's long past the time that SATA drives had MOLEX power connectors on them.

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.

i need a very quick reply please

Answer:Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M goes black after acer logo loads

Quick reply!!! Save your data and restore back to factory. Always have a back up image of your OS on a external drive for next time you have this problem!!

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).

As per Microsoft's instructions, I tried changing the "Start Page" value in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main," but I got the following error: "Cannot edit Start Page: Error writing the value's new contents." There was no "Default_Page_URL" entry in there.

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.

I would appreciate any help you could give me, thanks!

I restarted my computer like normal and for whatever reason the computer is now stuck at the Acer boot screen. I try to press DEL to enter Setup and I even tried pressing F12 to go into the Boot Setup, but for whatever reason the computer does not respond to anything.

To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.

Stuff to know:
- I have a wireless mouse and keyboard being used on that desktop.. Should I perhaps try to plug in a corded mouse and keyboard?
- I'm running on Windows 7 Ultimate.
Thanks

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

Greetings
