I got a new Acer Aspire 5820TG with 4GB RAM with preinstalled Win 7 Home Premium yesterday. It worked fine for about 1 hour. I installed Google Chrome and Windows Live Messenger. I Burned 3 DVD's (Acer Factory Default Recovery), and thought I was safe. After a while the screen turned black, and I thought it was Standby mode, because I had not used it for a while. That was when the "fun" started
. I had to restart the PC and it took more than 10 minutes but at least it started. The screen freezed after a couple of minutes, and since then I have not been able to start win 7.
I tried to boot with the Acer Factory Default Recovery DVD's, and it works to a certain point. It starts the Acer erecovery Management (v7.5.21), and I get 2 choises...Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults and Restore Operating System and Retain User Data.. The problem is that they are both shaded so I can's choose any of them
I have googled a lot to find a solution to the problem and decided to try to do a fresh installation of Win 7 Home Premium Edition, and quickly found out that this was not as easy as it was with the Win XP since the laptop did not come with any DVD. I was able to borrow a Win 7 Home Premium X64 dvd from a friend and thought the problem was solved. The problem now is that when I boot with the DVD it cannot find a disk for the installation. It only finds one partition with 0 MB free space
I have a feeling I did a big mistake when I bought the Acer Laptop
I will really appreciate all the help I can get.
