    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit


    I am unaware of any Framework update package that would be available. Security up dates should not be a problem.

    Thanks for all your help. I'll continue the update process, making restore points along the way and then hopefully will be able to restore the data backups.

    Once you are fully updated you should have not have future problems.

    As a suggestion, use Macrium Reflect (Free) to create an image backup on a external HD once healthy so you will not have to go through this routine in the future.

    Completed


    Just finalizing this issue. Installation with the recovery disks from Acer and a new hard drive completed the process. The issue with the system not seeing the battery after I did the installation was resolved when I closed the system back up after testing. Must be some type of issue with grounding with one of the case screws.

    Thanks
