Hi - I've worked with thanks to you all, I'll wish to explain how to fix at the base.

1 - Download partition manager free 2014.

2. run the partition manager and select go delet.

3 - Select the partition that has 100 MB space and delete

4. then select the larger partition and delete.

5 - turn off the power to the laptop

6 - Turn on the laptop

7. when the acer page appears, press ALT + F10 ONLY once.

8. then I chose to install full. higher setting.

Bingo it completed the complete installation without blocking upward on the desktop.

This has been mentioned somewhere else where but should be simplified.

hope that it all works for you.

  • My Acer Aspire R14 does not start with the cord of the charger plugged in with the battery connected to

    A few weeks ago, my laptop Acer Aspire R14 went totally blank. When I unplugged the power cord, it started right to the top, but at the moment where I plugged the power cord back inside would be closed. The battery dies quickly in this way, because it would not charge. I removed the battery then it started upward with the power cord. I thought it must be the battery, so I installed a new battery. which is not to change the problem.

    So, I ordered a new motherboard and after a few weeks, I received it today, installed, and I have always the same thing. It works well with the power cord plugged in until the battery is disconnected. But at the time wherever I connect the battery, everything stops, not to be revived unless I disconnect the battery.

    I need help! What could be the problem?

    Glad I could help.

  • Acer Aspire 5515 does not start

    Well, I have a 5515 Acer Aspire running Windows Vista Home Basic Edition. It hasent been working lately (VISTA USUALLY START!). I have no idea what my BIOS password. In any case, I have a never used Windows Vista Ultimate not copy to level. Can I pop in my computer and without starting Vista, (re) install vista? PLEASE HELP ME! I'VE BEEN WITHOUT A COMPUTER FOR A MONTH! I HAD TO WRITE THIS ON MY IPHONE!

    If you have problems with BIOS password, you will need to contact Acer at the link above.


    You can't get in your version of Vista has to do an upgrade, you need a license Ultimate FULL Vista to do a clean install, not an ultimate upgrade license.

    BUT you cannot change boot order if you have BIOS password problems.
    Contact Acer is the solution.

    See you soon.

    Have desktop Acer running Vista.  When turning the power on, screen stops at a black screen with "American Megatrends" and "press Delete to enter Setup or F12 for BBS Popup.  Bed features but cold stops at Auto detecting USB storage devices.  Have you tried typing Delete on startup and F12 also.  Also tried F8 and F10 control.  Nothing seems to work.  Sometimes when I hit Delete or F12 at the power, subsequently will pass on their corresponding monitors but it takes literally hours sometimes.  I downloaded a Vista Recovery of Neotech and tried to have the start of the DVD system, but obviously, it didn't work.  Had the same problems when I had to restart.  Please help had only 1 month, is going to launch windows soon!


    You have serious hardware problems and need to file a complaint with Acer.

  • Built in mic on acer aspire one does not

    The microphone on my acer aspire one netbook does not work. I am running windows XP on the netbook and had this problem once before some time back, but can't remember what the person tech told me to uninstall that does the job all of a sudden again. I use also the audio if it helps Realtek HD. I tried several times to update the drivers and reinstall the software from the acer site, it does not work... any suggestions?


    Thank you for your message.

    I see that you are facing problems with the built-in microphone.

    Let's not worry! I'm here to help.

    Quick questions:

    1. what exactly happens when you use the built-in microphone? You receive an error message?

    2. What is the status of the device in Device Manager?

    Check out this link to learn more about device manager:

    By using Device Manager

    Let's try the following and check:

    Method 1:

    We will adjust the volume of your microphone and check if it is set as default.

    (a) right click on the "speaker" icon located on the bottom right corner the screen of the taskbar.

    (b) click on sounds, click on the recording tab.

    (c) click Microphone, and then click Properties. (Note to make sure that this work appears under Microphone. If the job does not appear, click on Microphoneand then click set as default.)

    (d) in the Properties of the Microphone dialog box, click the custom tab.

    (e) select or clear the check box Amp Microphone .

    (f) click the levels tab.

    (g) set the slider for the volume to the desired level, and then click OK.

    (h) click on OK to close the sound dialog box.

    Method 2:

    I would also say that you update the drivers for your Microphone and looking for the issue.

  • Acer Predator G3620 does not start / has stopped working

    Hey, I got this computer from a friend who does not need it more. I have not had a true PC in 6 years. Always used a laptop with Linux, do not have a Windows operating system from 7. (I don't know no * beep * about material things) So, I got it home, bootet and everything works fine. A ran a few points of reference for the video card, checked if everything was ok. He had installed Win8.1. His former * beep * is all the more this thing, so any format / install Win10!

    I started the installation of Win10 in Win8.1 because it is somehow, he would not start the USB at the start. If something copied PC, I cancelled it bacause I couldn't choose my language and I tried to boot from USB again, but it did not work. So I hold the Power button until the coils of PC, press again and nothing. (The USB stick with Win10 works fine, used to install Win10 on my computer laptop girls last week.)

    No output display, no Acer Logo, no screen of any kind. The fans all run (CPU, GPU, case). The power button, there is a small circle indicator thing. When I press the power button, it's blue for like 5 seconds and then it goes off and nothing happens. The sign of power remains just orange!

    Numlock lights will not illuminate, mouse driven stuff does not illuminate.

    There is an SSD of 16 Go inside, but the Windows files are all on a 500 GB Partition.

    Don't really know what to do, please help me :-)

    Data sheet: Acer Aspire G3620 (AG3620_H) Predator SNID:24100255718, Core i7-3770, 8 GB of RAM, 1 TB HDD, 16 GB SSD, AMD Radeon HD 7770


    Turn it off for half an hour, running again. Same question.

    It turns off, took out the RAM GPU and BIOS battery, waited 15 minutes while. Always the same.

    Looks like something related to the motherboard, I suggest you to update the BIOS by the way so if it is something related to it, it can be fixed.

  • Acer V5-573 does not start. Starts sometimes for 2 seconds.

    I have a problem with my Acer V5-573, 6 months of age.

    A few days ago it is not started when you press the Start button. I removed the charger and tried again, still nothing. Then I removed the rear access to the battery. I removed the battery and tried to connect just the charger.

    Which results in the laptop to start for 2 seconds as normally, fans start for like 1 second and then just stops and the start button wont work again. This happens whenever I connect the charger and the battery power is turned off.

    Sometimes when I press the Start button, works and housing starts as it should and then at a random time, it stops once more. For the most part he just does not react on the start button.

    I have not replaced or modified the original material.

    Any ideas?


    Thanks for the update. Of after what you're saying, it sounds like there might be a hardware problem. I suggest you contact Support technique Acer and have your device put in place for the service.

    Hi Markprentice,

    ·         Since when are you facing this problem?

    ·         Remember to make changes to the system?

    ·         Have you defined a plan of power on laptop?

    I recommend you perform the clean boot.

    Put your boot system helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you need to maybe contact the manufacturer of the program for updates or uninstall and reinstall the program.

    See the following article in the Microsoft KB for more information on how to solve a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7:

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Note: After troubleshooting, be sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in step 7 in the above article.

  • Aspire 5734Z does not start on DVD or USB

    I have an older 5734Z, I was dual-boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux. Please don't ask why, but there are a few nights, I was extremely mad, and finally insert my live cd of Linux and the entire to FAT32 hard drive formatting, I mention this to show why I'm trying to reinstall.

    If the next day, I get my Windows 7 installation disc, insert it into the DVD drive, rebooted, finished computer POST and immediately went to a blank screen with a blinking cursor, the PC is completely insensitive, or locked, it does not meet anything other than the power button. This has happened about 5 times, so I got my Linux installation CD and got the same result, POST to flashing on a screen cursor blank and the pc is totally insensitive, only option is to press the power button until it stops. I try some other installation disc the same result.

    Can I get a DVD USB drive and try all different installation media, with the same result. So I get another pc and create an installation program for the flash drive USB, with the same blinking cursor and a white screen. I know that the formatting of the disk has no effect on whether it loads the install DVD/USB media, I know that the hard drive is formatted to have no effect on starting to install media, I know that I do not need to format before reinstalling, but resettlement of time was not exactly what was in my mind I just wanted to blank computer. It comes to all things, I heard on other forums instead of solve my problem, which is why didn't he start either from DVD/USB DVD/USB flash drives?

    Try typing several times the F2 key immediately after switching on to try to get into the bios menu. If you can, go to advanced settings and try to set the DVD first in the boot sequence to try reinstalling.

  • Acer Travelmate 5744z does not start, Option not Bios

    IAM having an Acer Travelmate 5744z laptop and it installed Windows 7.
    Yesterday I forgot to stop the laptop while I sleep and today morning when I turned it on it started reume windows, then I accidentally pressed the power button and it is just off. So I pressed the power button again and tried to turn on the system, but it showed something like "Delete restoration data and proceed", so I clicked on this point, BAM my phone fell in bootloop.
    Current condition: menu Acer comes when you press power button No. BIOS options aka F2 Menu appears, then a dash (-) comes on a black screen and then returns to the screen of the acer.
    If someone knows to fix it please help me.

    If you put an installation disc or a system repair disc into the CD/DVD and start, there is a good chance that it starts from the disk. No need to go into Bios.
