I renamed my C: drive to "Vista", instead of "Acer", and this happened:

After seeing this, I attempted to rename the drive back to "Acer". This happened:

Obviously, I provided admin permission to change it, but it simply turns back into "Vista".

Can anyone tell me what is going on, and how to fix it?

EDIT: I've noticed something else, too. This happens when I try to run regedit:

I've Googled error 65535, and I haven't yet tried the solution yet.

Now I'm afraid that if I shutdown, my laptop won't boot. Help, guys!

Looks to me like some random built in glitch probably to do with acer software on your machine. Tried rebooting? You may just need to change then change back the drive icons.

Well, after 30 minutes of Googling, I could not find the answer. I had to use System Restore coupled with Startup Repair to fix the problem.

I lost over 4GB of files... =/

Also, my C: drive is still called Vista! (Lols.)

How would that fix his problem? He has a ACER, not an ASUS.

I'm pretty sure that Asus repair kit is compatible across the board....

I think that tool is universal... it helped me remove the monitor off my PowerMac 5400\180 that had it's monitor burn out...

Heck it worked on a few old dells the school threw out to, you just do not get that complete compatibility with every computer type and every OS anywhere else...

anyways have you tried a restore point?

Ah didn't see that, though on reading it how do you loose 4gb of files using startup repair and restore points? Don't those only change back Windows things?

Seriously, beats me. I have all the files back now though, so it doesn't really matter.
