I'm not paying for original discs though. I see that as a cynical fleecing of customers by Acer. For example Toshiba, Dell, HP supply a recovery, restore media witch you can run to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. All you have to do — to insert the disk inside the laptop and make it boot from the DVD drive and follow the instructions. Some manufacturers IBM for example create a recovery partition on the hard drive and you can access it if you press F-key on startup.

The sound does not work in my laptop. Thank you! Merle, Have you tried calling to Toshiba and asking if they can sell you one? We have an Acer Aspire which is back in for service again at the end of the one year warranty.
In this first year it has broken down approximately every 3 months and has always seemed to run hot. The fan was replaced after 2 months, the motherboard after 4 months, the LCD screen and power cord after 7 months, and now at My son the user has been careful with it and yet has had nothing but problems.
Suffice to say, we will not buy another Acer. However, is there anywhere we can get repair documentation for this unit? If nothing else we can use it as a learning experience! Beth, That sounds strange that a broken hinge is not covered. Toshiba replaces broken hinges if the laptop is still under warranty.
I have an Acer Aspire with thermal heatsink module that needs to be replaced, how easy it this to replace, any special proceure, or tricks to know about? I have a laptop that i need the cd s that cam with it whn i brought it. Unfortunentl i dont not have thom no more. Is it possiable i could buy those cds from on line. If you have suggestions that could help me out it would be a great help to me.
I would contact the seller and ask if the CD will work for your model, even though they claim that the recovery CD is good for any laptop. I then plug in my mini dv camera and it refuses to detect it. I have tested the card and cable and camera on another laptop and they all work fine.

Thks for reading this request. Sincerely Derek 15 Oct If the laptop is still under warranty I would defiantly call the tech support. If the warranty is over, I would try this. Remove all modules that you can access: hard drive, DVD drive, wireless card, battery.
Even without these modules you still should be able to start the laptop and get some video on the screen. Move the memory into the second slot, if you have any. Try moving the laptop without all abovementioned modules. Does it still shut down? Find out after which module it will start failing. If yes, then you might have a loose cable connection somewhere on the system board or inside the display assembly. Further troubleshooting will require taking apart the laptop and reseating all cables.
BUT find out if you still have the warranty. I think that it could be either a loose wire inside the power cord or the power jack is loose or broken. First of all, find a multimeter and check if the power on the AC adapter plug cuts off when you move the cord.
To fix the problem it would be necessary to resolder or replace the power jack. Hi i was hoping i could get some help please.
Thanks for any suggestions in advance. What about the power LED, does it light up? I have an ACer ASpire wlmi. The right hand speaker start buzzing and distorting. So I sent it into Acer for repair and they said its was one day out of warrinty. I am a systems engineer and have sourced the part So I am going to try myself. Does anyone know how to remove the faulty speaker or even get inside the case? I presume you lift out the keyboard and work from there.
Is there a place where i can buy Acer recovery CDs cheap? One recovery CD works for a few different models.

Most likely you have a faulty hard drive because a good hard drive should be recognized by the BIOS without any problem.
If you still have the same problem even with a new drive, it might be an issue with the controller on the motherboard. Hi, i have the same problem as jishan here, i have two hard disks in my laptop but there is none shown in the bios.. The laptop had a CD-Rom drive installed but was missing the hard drive. I think you might have the same problem. Both hard drives in your laptop are connected to the same IDE channel and if one of the drives fails, both of them disappear from the BIOS.
