  1. Yeah, I saw the ad and it said that you could get it for free! So I tried it. Nice graphics, better protection! I would recommend it to anyone!
  2. I wouldn't even try messing with the BIOS, because if you mess something up in there, you can kiss your PC good-bye.
  3. Oh, and again! I finally contacted ACER, They said that I should upgrade my RAM, and I also have a 1YEAR warranty. I chewed them out too! So congrats to me!!
  4. Oh, and before I forget, I use limewire for movies and music, I don't download executable programs, and anyways I virus scan, and spyware scan my PC, it doesn't find anything.
  5. Joe C, It doesn't matter if the Visual Effects are set to, "Adjust for best appearence", even if I set it to, "Adjust for best performance", it still runs like junk. I'm just going to put Windows XP Home Edition on it. I ran a trial version of XP on it, and it ran SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FAST AND GOOD!
  6. Ok, try this link: http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=700DHWP0LFVSMVHW
  7. Its hard to check warrantys at ACER.
  8. I'm thinking about just blowing the thing up with a stachel charge, then take the rubble back for a warranty
  9. Simonsells, LOL, If I don't get this problem fixed, I'll strap dinomite to this, and blow it up outside, and then take the pieces and ask for a warranty at bestbuy!
  10. YOU GUYS WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT PCPITSTOP THINKS ABOUT THE RAM!!!!!! http://pcpitstop.com/pcpitstop/Summary.asp
  11. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? If you had this computer surely WITHOUT A DOUBT WANNA BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN!!!! What I'm going to do since you guys said that I should have a warranty longer the 30 days, I will check out this PC on BestBuy.com. I hope I find out the warranty is longer!!
  12. PLEASE BARE WITH ME! I'M FURIOUS!!! I got a Acer Aspire T180, 512MB RAM, 250GB HD, and a 4000+ AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor. I can't believe my BRAND NEW PC WORKS LIKE MY 1982 PC!!! This piece of junk doesn't even meet the MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR WINDOWS VISTA!!! I got this computer from my Best Buy store in Council Bluffs, IA, the warranty was for 30 days, it worked great up until the warranty was done with, then it started running extremely bad!!!!!!!!!!! I can watch movies and all of a sudden my screen turns completely black and then a notification thing at the bottom of the screen says, "Display driver stopped responding and had recovered", it does this over at least 20 times in a 5 minute period! Don't you guys DARE tell me that isn't fixed, and there is nothing I can do about it. To this point, I'm trying to do my best to fix the problem. I virus scanned my computer, had no viruses, spyware scanned it, no spyware, I adware scanned it, no adware, I deleted unneeded files like Nortons, games that I put on there earlier that I don't need no more, and I ran a frick'n defrag on the hard drive!!!! THE PROBLEMS PERSIST!!!! So I thought I would completely restore my restore my computer, I did, loaded Vista back on and everything, HE PROBLEMS STILL THEIR!!!!!!! I tried getting the new graphics driver from NVIDIA, my graphics go bad, forcing my to restore my PC!!!! AT THIS POINT I'M FED UP WITH THE PIECE OF JUNK. I tried setting my graphics down very low, still the problem persists, and just a few days ago, I was watching a movie, and all of a sudden the whole thing shuts off. but my monitor and speakers were still on. I tried turning it back on, and do you know what happens?!?!?!?! IT WOULDNT TURN ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to wait hours just for it to finally turn back on. NOTE: The power to my home did not give out, or else it would of turned the monitor off too. AT THIS POINT I WANT TO BURN MY HOUSE DOWN!!!!!!!!! OVER A PIECE OF JUNK COMPUTER!!!! and I was stupid enough to buy this junk. IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY IDEAS PLEASE TELL MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
  13. I would just buy a new DVD burner. A couple years ago I got a Compaq Persario, and the DVD thingy burned out.
  14. I'm not having any problems with the AVG Free, I'm having problems with the full version of AVG. It won't update! Leaving me unsecure. I need to keep my PC secure, because I run a gaming server on Wolfenstein Enemy Territory, I can't lose any data. So I had to go with the free edition. I have tried re-installing AVG, problem persists. I have restored, problem persists. I guess since I have Ad-Aware SE PRO, Windows Defender, and AVG Free, I guess I am fully protected!
  15. It's not the free edition updater I'm talking about though... I'm having problems with the Anti-Spyware one. It won't update. I have tried reinstalling it, but that doesn't work! I have restored my PC, and still it won't work!!!!!! ARGH!!!
  16. More and more problems have persisted!! AND I'M FURIOUS!! I E-Mailed ACER, and I gave them what they deserved!! I told them the truth! THIER PCS ARE JUNK!!!
  17. Free Edition only comes with the Anti-Virus and Email Protection. AVG 7.5 Internet Security offers COMPLETE internet security. For instance it deletes adware, spyware, viruses, and malsoftware. which the free edition doesn't.
  18. Yeah, I had to go with the free version, because of the update problem. I couldn't get no support.
  19. Ok, I'm using AVG 7.5 Anti-Virus, the paid version, and I'm having problems with updater. When I go to update, it says problems occured cauing it to not update. Is anyone that is using AVG having this problem?
  20. Intel if more for business, and AMD is more for gaming.
  21. This is what my PC has, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Processor, 512MB RAM, 250GB HD, 128MB Graphics RAM. I know that my computer can support Vista. But, I can't find any updates for my graphics driver. If I update to any other Gforce, My graphics will crash forcing me to restore. I'm going to try Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 on here.
  22. Ronald, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WOULD I USE NORTON!!! I got a trial version on my new ACER, the one with the Graphics problem, and it didn't help one bit!! I had nothing but problems with that junk. If I were you, I would recommend you buying the new AVG7.5 Anti-Spyware. AVG is probably the best Internet Suite their is. Good Luck with that! Oh, and about the background programs, I would go to: Start - - Run - - and type in the box MSCONFIG, to open up the System Configuration thingy, and turn off startup programs you don't want starting, that will fix the problem.
  23. Problem is, I'm using Windows Vista Home Basic. I have my computer updated with every single Vista update, and I can't download from NVIDIA because 1)I can't find the driver that matches my Nforce one. 2)Even when I download an update from their it will completely mess my graphics up, forcing me to restore. I'm going to try putting Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, once I get the money. It's kind of hard to see XP go... so I'm going to it.
