    Acer, error code, 0xa... patch issue?

    Gee wiz, why didn't I think of that!? Lol, if I could do any of those things, I wouldn't need to reset. And its an Acer Laptop, they don't come with Discs... they are preloaded:( Thank you tho, turns out it was the MS Patch Tuesday update, now I have to wait til the new uncorrupted one comes out the 8th.

    I know the difference between mbps and MBps:)that was a typo.Was told the phone modem may be screwing with the bandwidth. We need to split and put the phone on a different modem. I don't think that I have the wrong expectations about my internet, for one it should be somewhat constant. It spikes to 40ish mbps and then drops to 1.43 and like I said it sometimes takes forever for the upload part to finish. Ping usually won't even test packet loss when our "signal" is bad. 15 mbps should be able to support Netflx, but sometimes it just spinnispinnispins. (the red circle of RAGE).

    What is SEO? Is it illegal?

    SEOs are OF THE DEVIL, LOL! I have helped do some SEO work for a few online employers and they are very sneaky. Don't you just hate it when you are searching for something specific, using the product name, and every review, article and competing product comes up, before the actual product does? Thank SEOs for that lovely 15 min loss of your life that you will never get back. But the success of a lot of small companies and generic alternatives owe their online success to them. While they may not be able to afford a huge advertising campaign, they can sneak their name in your field of vision , by using keywords instead of ads.

    Is my ISP screwing me?

    I am paying for 15 mbps download, but lately I have only been getting between 1 or 2 Mbps. I call my ISP and complain, but they keep saying that it is our router, but I always bypass the router when I test! And when I test @ speeedtest.net, the closest server always has the slowest results, a full 10 Mbps slower. Ping is all over the place and my upload tests take FOREVER to finish. This is with, both, Google Chrome and IE. When I talk to CS for my ISP, they ALWAYS say that everything looks great from their end. When the service guys show up they test and say we have a signal, exactly what does "You have signal" mean anyway? I am sure we do, but it isn't what we are paying for. They replaced the modem three times in the last 18 mos, had the lead tech out a half a dozen times. One time, and one time only, did they admit that there was a bandwidth issue and "noise". If Suddenlink didn't have a proprietary monopoly in this town, I would switch providers! Can someone help me troubleshoot this? Cause they sure as heck won't!

    Acer Inspire, factory reset

    I know how to reset it when I can access the control panel, but I can't get to it. So how to I reset it to factory from start up?
