Acer Aspire 6930 Problems

Since i upgraded my acer aspire 6930 from vista to windows 7 i have been having many issues, including the blue screen of death twice. Another problem is updates. Whenever i attempt to download updates it takes me directly to the vista updates page and then just sits there for ever "checking updates". In an attempt to force my system to use windows 7 updates i went directly to microsoft.com and surfed my way to the windows 7 updates. Now it's "searching for updates on this computer" it has been doing this for approx 20 min and nothing is happening. Not to mention it won't find any becausei haven't managed to download any since i upgraded.

Among many other minor issues, the last problem is the fact that when i go to programs through the control panel and click on 'turn windows features on or off' it sits there for quite a while but when it's done the screen is blank.

I'm thinking the upgrade hit a snag, part of my computer thinks it's still vista while others act like windows 7. Of note my bf who has the exact same system as i do - bought at same time - and upgraded the same day as i is not having these problems and certain features on his system are completely different from mine.

What do i do? I still have the recovery disks from when my system had vista on it, do i try to recover it from those? I'm reluctant to use the 7 recovery disks because i assume they will have the same issues. Please help.

Acer Aspire One Webcam Not Working

I have an acer aspire one 10" model w/ built in webcam. I purchased in july 2009, model came installed with xp. I recently upgraded to windows 7. Acer will not support me because i have upgraded and they insisted i purchase tech service for assistance. Ridic! The device manager displays webcam and states it is working properly. It also states driver updated. I have uninstalled it restarted and reinstalled, but it still is not working.

I use to be able to click it open, now  when i click pic it just displays the information but no where on my computer am i able to actually open the device for picture purposes, quite frustrating in finding answer on web, seems to be a lot of people giving answers or links to driver scan sites.

Acer Aspire Refuses To Shut Down

I bought an acer aspire 5738 just before christmas and sent off for the windows 7 upgrade disc and installed it. It was working fine until today, when all of a sudden it refused to shut down.
I've left it for over an hour, and all it that happens is the screen switches off after a while. Every occasion so far, i've had to hard shut down the laptop. I've tried restoring from an earlier point, closing everything down via task manager before shutting down and the various windows diagnostic tools, but nothing seems to be working. I don't understand why it wasn't a problem until now, and is now screwed up, as i haven't installed any new software in a couple of months. Can anyone help me?

Broken Acer Upgrade Dvd

I installed my windows 7 upgrade dvd after i received it i believe some time in january 2010. As i put the disk into a dvd container, it broke. I tried acer customer service who told me to contact mentor media. I tried but there was no response from mentor media so i complained to the canadian corporate office and the better business bureau. Finally someone left a message with my order number. I tried accessing the mentor media site with the order number to no avail.

I never received a replacement disk and was told today that there was no way of getting it because mentor media was out of existence. How can i get a replacement of a disk i need to re-install a windows 7 upgrade? Otherwise my acer computer may be useless. Perhaps looking for someone i can pay to copy their acer upgrade dvd [ the green one] and send it to me or create an iso file so i can make a replacement.

Acer Win 7 Upgrade Offer

I bought acer computer on 28/1/2010 and immediately ordered upgrade and as it refused to accept my visa debit card i had to pay by telegraphic transfer to the bank in czech republic. Order status still says pending payment but i have been advised that mentor media have definitely received payment. I emailed them several times and never got a reply. I phoned acer who were diabolical and kept saying it is being handled by mentor media but the contract is with acer as everything up to the order confirmation is from them. It is only when it gets to payment that it changes to payment in czech republic.

I have been cut off by acer a couple of times and they refuse to take on board all my information plus refuse to put me onto a manager. I bought the computer from staples in oxford, england as my son said to get this one as it had windows 7 upgrade offer and they say it is acer who is dealing with this but acer pass the buck to mentor media who are more or less dead as they never reply. Pass the parcel has nothing on this and i am absolutely disgusted by all this.

Acer Win 7 Home Premium Oem

I have an acer aspire desktop pre installed win7 home premium oem x64 – it is needing a complete clean re install, only thing is i don't have a windows 7 home premium oem dvd. I only have a retail win7 dvd that i purchased a while ago for my partner- so is it possible to use the win 7 home premium dvd retail to re install my acer oem?
 
Does it work by changing the ei. Cfg file from – channel – retail to oem?
 
Or just by removing the ei. Cfg file?
 
Would any of the above work and if not is there another way around this? Now for what i mention on the above and having read the microsoft laws i am assuming this is boarder line from being illegal. As all of the above has been purchased by myself. And i don't want to use the recovery partition as full of bloatware.

Installing Updates

Bought an e-machines pc for christmas 2007. In december 2009 i had a problem with the computer which has recently been diagnosed has a common fault with the motherboard which i have since replaced. I have spent the last two weeks trying to get my system back up and running after replacing the motherboard. I have re-installed the windows vista that came with the pc and the computer works fine. I then download avg internet security and use the computer absolutely fine. However each time i switch off the pc and then try to switch it back on it tells me that the system registry is missing or corrupt and to boot from the disc to do the repair.

I do this and again the computer works fine. However the internet security and anything else i had on there is missing including any documents i had saved. This happens everytime switch off the computer. Having looked on this site i found that i had no service packs installed so downloaded sp1 and sp2. These wouldn't run and the site advised me to install an updater add on. This wouldn't install either. My automatic updates wont work either. I'm not computer illiterate but i'm no expert either so please help.

Installing On New Computer

I am going to be receiving a refurbished computer here soon, i have purchased the windows 7 copy to upgrade from vista. My question is do i just do upgrade or customize and do like a clean install. I will have really nothing on this computer other than what comes on it already. If i do a clean install do i lose things such as (and i know these arnt important things but there just small easy details to elaborate with) solitare, calculator, and meaningless things that like. Or are all of those things then re-installed with the windows 7 reprogram, or will all that stuff then be on other software disks i receive with the computer. Again sorry to sound stupid just want to make sure i do things correctly and should i just do the upgrade or a clean sweep on a new system.

Installing Win 7 Using Cd

When  i purchased windows & i also paid and extra $13. 00 for the cd knowing that you can only download and install using the purchased link once. I downloaded windows 7 on my home computer just fine and it works great, no trouble at all. However i purchased the cd in addition to the download link so that i could install windows 7 on my laptop as well. But for some reason it will not accept my key. I've tried typing in the key on the cd case and the key i received when i downloaded it from your site, but nothing is working.

Installing Win 7 From Xp

I currently have windows xp and yesterday when i booted up my machine, there were no icons or taskbar, and i cannot find my explorer.exe file. After lots of research and virus scanning, i have decided to purchase windows 7 and format the drive in order to get a clean install. Here is the problem. During the windows 7 setup it never gives me the option to actually format the drive. Sorry to be tedious, but here are the steps i followed:

1)since i don't have any icons or taskbar, i hit ctl-alt-dlt and run the windows 7 'setup' through the file->new task.

2)i get the 'install now' choice, and click it.

3)screen reads 'setup is copying temp files'

4)screen reads 'setup is starting'

5)asks if i want to go online for updates. I click yes.

6)agree to the license agreement)choose custom setup

8)now it asks me where to install, and this is what i see. My hard drive:  disk 0 partition 1 (c:)at the bottom of the screen i see 'refresh', 'load driver', and in the bottom right 'next'. Isn't there supposed to be an 'advanced option' somewhere?  What have i done wrong?
