You have an Acer Aspire 5741Z-5433 that you let someone who said they were a computer programmer work on and now it says that Windows 7 installed is not genuine. When you try to restore to factory settings, you cannot find an Acer Erecovery program on that computer. Also, you cannot find an Acer Erecovery management site.
Do you have any important data on that laptop that you want to keep? Click on your “Start” menu and click “All Programs”. In a program list click an “Acer” folder, then click an “Acer eRecovery Management” icon.
Windows User Account Control may ask for your permission to run this program, click “Yes”. From an “Acer eRecovery Management” window on left click “Restore”, then click “Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults”. On a “Confirmation” screen, select “Yes” and click “Start”.
Finally click “OK” to confirm restoration and then your computer will restart. After that computer restarts click “Next” if you agree to a notice on your screen. That notice is informing you that all your data will be erased.
If you have not backed up your data click “Cancel” now. Next you get a final confimation screen. Click “Next”, then click “OK” to start that recovery process.
That recovery may take a while to finish. You will get a confirmation screen when it is finished. Click “OK” to restart your computer.
If you cannot find an Acer eRecovery program folder on your computer then restart that computer. When an Acer logo appears on that screen, press Alt and F10 keys repeatedly. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press an Enter key.
After that system recovery application has loaded, follow some prompts to reinstall an operating system.
Your Asus EEE PC Seashell series netbook is so slow. With 1 gigabyte of Random Access Memory, it is painfully slow. You see that there are two hundred seventy five megabytes of Random Access Memory that is “Reserved” and with only Internet Explorer running taking 600 megabytes, memory usage is always running at 90% plus.
Heaven forbid that you have Microsoft Word or Excel open at same time. You’ve turned off Microsoft and Norton “Auto updates”. Any ideas on how to free up that reserved memory?
You tried a defrag, check disk, stopping auto updates, and other system services. You couldn’t figure out how to reallocate memory.
Have you performed any malware scans at all? I recommend you download and run a free malwarebytes scan. Make sure malwarebytes is updated before you begin that scan. You may need to boot your computer into Windows safe mode with networking.
Also, please download and install free CCleaner after running malwarebytes. Use CCleaner for cleaning your PC and registry cleaning. You may need to run both clean and registry scans more then once.
You might have some malware that your antivirus software is not detecting. Yes I recommend running malwarebytes and ccleaner periodically. That could be malware running in background taking up memory.
This problem may occur because a Maximum memory option is selected incorrectly. To fix this, follow these steps. Click “Start”, then type “msconfig” without quotes in a “Search programs and files” box, and then click “msconfig” in that “Programs” list.
In a “System Configuration” window, click “Advanced” options on a “Boot” tab. Click to clear a “Maximum memory” check box, and then click “OK”. Restart that computer.
Clear a “Maximum” memory” setting by unchecking it’s check box. Click OK. Reboot your computer.

Have you performed any anti virus or malware scans? Also, have you run a hard drive diagnostic test? You could try removing and reinstalling your video drivers.
Also, have you tested it in any of those safe mode options? I recommend malwarebytes and ccleaner scans. If it runs without blue screening in any of those safe mode options, then it is most likely a drivers issue or malware/virus issue.
I recomend you download and run a free MalwareBytes scan. Make sure malwarebytes is updated before you begin that scan. Also, please download and install free CCleaner after running malwarebytes.
Use CCleaner for cleaning your PC and registry cleaning. You may need to run both clean and registry scans more then once. If you click on that blue “Download Now” button it should download a version that will work on XP, Vista, or 7.
It is preferable to run those scans at least malwarebytes scan in safe mode with networking. Malwarebytes program might want you to reboot your computer to completely remove any threats found.
You are getting a launch startup repair or start windows normally message at boot. Windows will not start and you also let that startup repair run for about two hours with no result. Your lost without your laptop.
Please power on that computer and before Windows 7 tries to boot immediately start pressing an F8 key until an advanced boot options menu. Select “Last good configuration” from that menu. Hopefully, Windows will boot normally.
If previous step does not fix your issue, then this time please go back into that advanced boot options menu before Windows tries to boot. Choose “Safe mode with command prompt”. Once in a black command prompt window, please type in “chkdsk /f /r” without quotes.
A volume is in use message will appear. Type Y and a chkdsk scan will be scheduled. Reboot that computer and a chkdsk scan should begin.
Well if none of those safe mode options will work, do you have a Windows 7 installation disc or recovery disc? There might be a recovery partition on that hard drive. Press and hold down a 0 key that is a zero key while pressing that laptop’s power button if you have a Toshiba laptop.
A recovery program should open. Do you have any important data on that computer’s hard drive? If you don’t have any data you want to save, then you can go ahead and try to restore that computer to factory settings.
Make sure that computer is powered off. Then press a zero key while pressing a power button at same time. If you don’t have recovery media and a factory recovery partition does not work then taking it to a computer repair shop, might be your best bet.
A factory recovery utility should work. Previous instructions were for restoring a Toshiba laptop to factory settings. Your laptop might differ therefore keystroke combinations might be different to get a factory recovery to work.
Your operating system is Vista. Is there an upgrade or download that you can get to fix problems your having? You can’t do anything with this system without some kind of snafu occurring.
You cannot download information to hook up your printer. A friend told you to update Vista to get Windows 7. Everything you do on Vista gives you “done with error on the page” or knocks you out altogether.
You have just received high speed internet and want some help upgrading your system, but you don’t know what to do. Could use some expert advice. Yes, Vista can be upgraded to Windows 7.
Make sure you have Vista service pack 1 or 2 installed. You can check out this Upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 article from Microsoft. Please read “Overview”, “Step 1”, and “Step 2” tabs.

Here is a listing of Windows 7 upgrade retail versions, using a google shopping search. You can purchase a full version of any Windows 7 types, but full version is more expensive.

Vista premium and then find out what upgrade version you need to purchase in that list on that Upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 article.
