my acer is 2.5 years old and the fan began noisy last few weeks but stil works, i open to clean the fan but nothing to clean.. everything is clean and no problem that i can see, the noise is still running...
I got a small problem with my Aspire laptop, it apears a small green line on my tft screen from the top of the screen till the bottum.. if i push or pull the screen a bit forward or backward the green line disapear sometimes.
I allready checked the connection plug from the tft to the mainboard it fits well,i try to open the screen itself (remove the plastic cover) but it dont seem to work there are 4 screaws located on the front side of the screen i removed them but the plastic cover dont open so i can check the cable connection inside and i dont want to break it ... so i prefer to asked the pro's
how i can open the screen , i mean the plastic cover without damingen the tft?
Everytime i try to install vista (from lots off different sources, even from acer dvd upgrade pack) on Acer Aspire 5112 WLMI I get blue screen error 0000008e . I have done some researching and found out that this is either wrong bios version or a problem with drivers. I flashed the bios (latest is 3.10, right?
I bought the above laptop over a year ago with Vista Home Premium installed, with the usual partition including the recovery software. Did I make my recovery discs? No, I did not and subsequently had a hard drive failure that resulted in the partition being lost too. I managed to put an old copy of XP on which has been fine upto now. I just bought an xbox and want to put vista on my computer so I can use the Windows media centre. Is there any other way I can get the recovery software without using Acer directly?
I have an Acer 5003WLMi and I would like to add 1GB of memory. I did a crucial scan and they recommended some memory, specifically the DDR-PC2700 1GB CT478616. Now, I was ready to buy it, but on Amazon I did a search for DDR-PC2700 memory and found another 1GB DDR-PC2700, this time with part number CT12864X335. Given the sensitivity here, I would like reassurance, so is there any difference in these two parts and is it okay to buy the memory from Amazon, or should I just buy the one Crucial recommended?
I'm trying to find the correct drivers for the above laptop. I found this thread How To's: Acer Aspire 5672 , but it seems some of the links no longer work.
This system had XP Home originally and the HDD died. I installed a new HDD and want to install XP Pro, have disk, and do away with all the Acer stuff.
I've already performed a clean install once before of XP Pro, but wasn't able to find the correct drivers for several pieces of hardware. I'm in the USA. Is there even an Acer USA? I can't seem to find the drivers at Acer.
I have my original backup disk that I created using Acer erecovery and an XP pro install disk.
Right down to the matter at hand. Yesterday I was working on my laptop, plugged in, but charging, about 40%, when all of a sudden it shuts down. I wasnt doing anything overly stressful, CPU's were each at about 50% load tops (Ubuntu 8.10, mysql, apache2, rythmbox, firefox, opera, some file browsers, pidgin).
My initial thought was that the power supply adapter had gone - thus it was draining whilst i worked and i hadnt noticed (since the connector is a little worn). I noticed that the little green light was blinking rapidly on it. However when I unplugged it from the laptop, it returned to its static green state.
I went to remove the HDD today as i had to get my work from it, so I thought I would try to start it up anyway. Nothing. Whilst removing the HDD i noticed an occasional clicking (3 little consecutive clicks to be precise, as if it were trying to start but just couldnt. This happened a few times, until I removed the battery, then it stopped. I can replicate this by turning it on and it will keep happening until I remove the battery.
Also I have gone inside, attempted to clean any dust off and cleaned the battery contacts, so it is unlikely to be anything like that.
I know its an old laptop these days and sometimes these things die, but this thing has been my baby. I learnt to code on this thing, I learnt Linux on this thing and I'm not giving it up without a fight.
So my g/f has bought this laptop from her brother for £100 and upon this he did tell us the battery is dead and the charger he is using ins't the official charger but the laptop works.
Upon getting the laptop I decided to try and make the battery last longer by discharging and charging it a few times fully, but this has just completely stopped the batery from working, fullstop.
So now I am having to run it off the power supply solely.
I have ordered a new battery from ebay and made sure it is the correct battery by checking the model of the laptop, model of the battery and not only that it's £15 cheaper then getting it from shops.
Dispite all that I still need to get a charger for this model, so I found one on ebay which said it was for the 5000 series but not my model, I emailed them and they confirmed to me that it wouldn't work for my laptop.
So now I am on the lookout for a charger for this laptop 5003WMLi but I don't know the model number for the charger so if anyone has an official charger for the 5003WLMi can they please post the model number so I can look for a cheap official charger.
Or if anyone knows what watt, voltage I need then I could perhaps get a charger to suit my needs................................
I have an Acer Aspire 5672WLMi laptop and it has a built-in OrbiCam, every once in a while I hear a sound as if I was plugging/unplugging an USB device, sometimes it does that twice and then stops but there's times, like a few mins ago, that it goes crazy and I get a Blue Screen.
The message I get is "File lv321.sys has caused an error. Page fault in non paged area" and makes me restart.
After I do that, Microsoft Error Reporting tells me that I should update the drivers although I already did that or to unplug the camera, which is impossible since it's built in.
I have searched on Google but couldn't find much information except perhaps the wires that connect the camera might be loose/damaged and that's what causing it.
I have disabled it on the Device manager but it won't solve anything.
Is there a way to completely disable the camera port?
What can I do to fix it?
The laptop is almost 2 years old and is not under warranty.
I have an Acer Aspire 5652 WLMi. I've just bought a new battery for it but when I insert it to the laptop after it starts it says "This is not an acer battery please check your battery" and shuts off. Also it doesn't seem to charge because the little orange light flashes instead of staying on. Do you know if there is a hidden program that doesn't allow new batteries?
I recently sold my Aspire 5002 WLMi notebook to a friend who changed too many settings and mussed up the BIOS in record time.... 10 days. I got most back by using a restore point but noticed he had a BIOS password requirement for booting up. I went to change that and set the new password with blank fields....save and quit....reboot....
...and whoops. Neither does a blank field nor his old password work now. in hindsight, I recall it was odd how some of his BIOS options had been greyd out and realized he must have a supervisor and another BIOS password. Swears he doesnt remember what he did. Now, we're locked out with 3 tries and error code 00000.
I removed the CMOS battery but unlike desktops I've messed with, I cant find any jumpers or marked pads to short out. Read somewhere that Acer now uses some form of flash memory. I cant find any documentation on this and Acer hasnt answered my email. Most of their sites dont even list this version of laptop. I bought it in Amsterdam at the end of 2005 but their Netherlands site is only in Dutch, a language I cant begin to decipher.
Anyone have ideas on this or possibly a motherboard schematic with lables? I looked at lists for Acer MB's and theres not a single number printed on here that resembles those lists I found.
My old Aspire 1690WLMi runs Windows 7, but can`t run Aero cause it has an integrated graphics card. Hard drive space is super tight since it`s only 80gb. Thinking of getting a new laptop around $1000, but also considering just getting a new 320gb hard drive for $100. What do you think i should do - new laptop or new hard drive.
Am totally new here. i need to change my HD that is 100 gb came with. i bought 250 gp but i dont know how to remove old hard drive. how can i remove old hard drive from Acer Aspire 5670 ? I opened the HD lid but then lots of stuff in side under silver cover.
I've run the Win 7 upgrade adviser and it says the system can run Win 7 as it has CPU 1.6 Ghz and 2.0 GB of RAM. However in the device section it says that the¬†Mobile Intel (R) 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family is not compatible - driver not compatible with Windows 7¬†. Is there a driver I can download to fix this¬†problem?¬† I've checked the Intel download web site but can't determine¬†whether a¬†driver exists or not ??
I have a problem with my laptop and it's spdif optic output. I want to connect it to my hi-fi but I am having trouble with enabling digital output. I just don't know how to do it
In my Realtek Mixer there are options only for analog outputs - no digital options at all. I use now the newest drivers, 1.70 or 1.77 - nothing. I've tried older versions, something like 1.30 and then spdif flashed red colour and I thought that it will be OK, but nope. Still no sound and no digital options in Realtek's mixer. On these new drivers (1.7x) it doesen't ever light up.
Someone here said that one cannot acutally see the LED inside blinking, well... I can see it As I told before on older drivers it's "on" all the time - althou no sound.
In the other topics I've read that one has to change default output to digital output - I see no such option, if I am just blind and retarded then someone posting a screenshot would be nice
I have an Acer Aspire 5634WLMi with 2 years. Got a problem on the monitor (15.4-inch LCD CrystalBite).
It slowly started a year ago (at that time still had warranty but underestimated the problem and now it expired). In all the black images(movies, photos) began to appear some green fluorescent dots that looks like they are living (in English I think is called flickering spots, jaggies?!) which then disappear and come back. I did not care at first because both appeared to disappear. Over time there have appeared more, followed by purple dots now. These purple dots are never in black image but sometimes they are the shadow of the black image. But in videos with very dark black only come green dots (always flickering). In all the other colors there is no problem, for example I am writing this in Word and the blue and white of this image is not green. It is however in my opinion a little blurry, I do not know. The letters are black (with a slight green Halo) but it seems that they arenít standing still and shake a little. The most strange is that on the desktop there is a pattern of green dots on the bottom left and a purple on the upper corner that are often there but sometimes also move around. In fact there was not so long ago a time when I got a perfect image. I began to think that the laptop went to very warm, open a part, cleaned the fan and reduce the processor speed by changing the temperature of the device. After a while it disappeared. But this improvement lasted only 1 day. Then it began all over again. I have also tried to connect the computer to another monitor and had a perfect image, so it seems that it is not the graphics. On the Internet I found many of these reports that the cable that goes from the graphicscard to the monitor is damaged and that a simple substitution leads to full restoration of the notebook. Anyway before attempting to open the laptop (I've been watching some videos of how to do) like to have another opinion from someone who realizes this. I already took him ah repair but wanted 250 euro to replace the monitor with dead pixels (which I think is wrong they are not all dead, and until very squiggly and alternate location). For 250euros rather buy a new though economically not good for me. When the computer has a completely black image is all green. For example when the screensaver comes with the ball moving from one place to another.
are AA1 owners able to hear the fan on their netbooks? mine isn't loud and doesn't change when the netbook is tilted, but curious if they're SUPPOSED to be silent. i don't mind the sound personally, just sounds like a tiny motor spinning in a quiet room - no clicking or anything like that.
i have a 5810T which i purchased recently. i've installed all the latest updates and drivers from both microsoft and acer.
however, i've noticed the following problem. when my adaptor is unplugged, i hear a white noise/hissing sound coming from both the left and right speakers. when i plug the adaptor back in, the sound is gone.
i've installed the realtek drivers, adjusted settings in the sound options, etc.
I bought a 4810 about a week ago & so far I'm pretty happy with it, but one things bothers me & I'm not sure if it's normal or not.
After the laptop's been on for awhile (maybe 30 minutes+) it will make a strange snapping or clicking noise (definitely not the hard drive.) It seems to come from the screen area although I'm not positive on that. It's pretty rare that it happens, but lately I've noticed it happening when the laptop powers off.
A few days ago I bought an Acer Aspire 5542 (AMD Turion II X2 M500) with Windows 7 .
The software on the laptop is running very smoth because the Aspire 5542 is coming with Windows 7 64 bit.
The problem it's just one: the fan is a bit noise and is permanently ON(when the laptop is idle also ....)(the same situation like for Timeline Series)
Someone of you had the same laptop with the same problem?
Someone have a service manual for this new model(Aspire 5542)? Is it posible to buy one(service manual) from somewhere? I want to try to open the chassis to seen the fan, and to try to solve this problem....If someone already do it first please post some pictures!
Let's start off with: Acer Aspire V3-772G (Intel(R) ore(TM) i7-4702MQ CPU @2.20GHz, 8 gb Ram) ¬† Regardless: After noticing a slight dip in preformance from games and use of my laptop in general so i decided to clean the fans. As this laptop is close to impossible to open up i decided to clean it the easy way, to blast compressed air directly into the fan in slow and infrequent blasts. After getting alot of dust out of the system i turned the laptop back on only to hear this "cd-reading"-like hissing from the left side of the laptop (where the fan is). Being worried i might have broken something i turned it stright off, and then on again realising there was not much i could do about it right now. ¬† I am worried i might have spun the fan to fast, causing this, as the fan did not make this sound when i bought it new or before i cleaned it for that sake. It was bought online from a norwegian store (i currently live in norway) at 2014-08-18. I thought i would ask here before i contacted the store or support to see if this is just me over-reacting or if
Acer: Full model: E1-522-65208G1TMnkkI just bought this 'fully' loaded notebook with 8 GB RAM, 1 TB Disk and an AMD 6 in Switzerland. However, using it is no pleasure as it just blows air from and makes CONSTANT fan noise. The device, bottom does not get hot though.What do I do - Bios update? Windows 8.1 ?
