I'm going to share that installing Microsoft Windows (any version) is not easy enough. Just look at this discussion -> http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7587_102-0.html?threadID=271360#2699006
It's no better with Vista. You still must find drivers but worse than that you must get the maker to supply an INSTALL PLAN. Miss one driver and the CPU runs at full tilt and may overheat and lockup.
My advice? Use the Acer System Recovery media next time.
Hi. I have recently loaded Vista Home Basic in my Acer Aspire 5920 laptop. The configuration is 1.86 GHz, 2 GB ram, 160 gb hard disk, Core 2 Duo...
After installing it was working fine. But suddenly it has started hanging up after some time of switching on.
I have not installed any new software. But tried to use an earlier restore point too. Has not helped.
I have Kaspersky antivirus 2010 in my machine.
Can anyone help as my laptop is no longer within warranty.
I had XP loaded earlier and same problem had inititally happened. Acer sent my a Hotfix which solved the problem.
But now I have vista in my machine. Cannot go back to XP.
