I just purchased 2 1gb memory sticks for my kids acer aspire 5315 opened up the back put in the two sticks and started the laptop which started and is running fine but whn I look at the system control panel it is only saying that i have 1 gb ram...
Operating System - Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service pack 3
DVD Drive - SONY DVD RW DW-Q58A Driver Provider - Microsoft Driver Date - 7/1/2001 Driver Version - 5.1.2535.0 DVD region - Region 1 Device status - This device is working properly.
When I insert any DVD ( original XP CD, empty DVD, empty CD, any movie, etc.), DVD drive tries to read the disk. I can hear the disk spinning and trying to read. After 3-5 seconds the spinning stops and the drive re-tries to read the disk again. This happen continuously until I remove the disk.
I can see the DVD-RW Drive icon in My Computer. I can Eject the DVD by right click -> Eject, on DVD drive icon in My Computer.
The DVD drive works properly. I tested it on other laptop that I have, K series SONY VAIO laptop..................
I bought this laptop G500 Lenovo 4 months ago and I am satisfy but unfortunately I found out still it have defects my problem is my cd/dvd rom I got un annoying noisy sound inside when I put a cd on it I guess it will give me problem sooner and now it happens it won't read anymore. I try to search for answers maybe it only a software issue but doesn't work any trial. Uninstall driver and bring it back don't work still there is the annoying sound and not reading. I guess a mechanical failure in its cd alignment that it is spinning but the head is keep on adjusting which creating the noisy sound means it was not align to read the CD.

i have done a clean install of windows 7 on my 5315 everything runs perfect just one small thing when i use the volume buttons the green bars that used to come up at the bottom of the screen no longer appear,
After installing my new XPS M170 motherboard, processor, and Go 7800gtx I went to run a system stability test and forced the fans to high with 18FanGUI but I noticed that my GPU temps were always reading 00 in the task bar and I could not get an actual reading.
I got a problem with my Acer Aspire 5315. The HDD is shown in the bios but won't show in Vista most of the time. The HDD is completely formated, including the Acer partition. So recovery is not an option.
The problem is strange because it is not consistent. Sometimes I am able to acces the drive and install Vista. But then the next day,when i try to boot again, i only see a cursor after the Acer boot screen.
I've tried running in IDE mode. I also tried replacing the HDD with a new one. I installed vista with the correct Intel driver.
I also tried running Linux live cd. It also sees the HDD drive correctly but when i try to acces it, the program freeses.
I'm affraid something is wrong with the I/O controller, or it is a loose cable. If you think otherwise, please let me know. If not, i'd like to know how I can check the HDD cable.
My Acer 5315 died during a power outage while updating the BIOS. I have been trying to revive it using an old post I found. I suspect everything is ok except for the autoexec.bat file that I have written. Any help? Or does anyone know where I can just get the Inside recovery disc?
Every so often my laptop shuts down. Like it seems after it comes back from a sleep session the fan doesnt come back on. I had to replace the hard drive in it once because I think it fried from getting to hot. I don't know whats wrong with it. I had a cool pad, but it didnt keep it to cool. Is there any fixes, or fans I could put in it to keep it cool? Or even drill any holes anywhere to cool it down? its an acer 5315 model.
I have a Acer Aspire 5315 that has been causing me a lot of problem. It recently started to shutdown with no warning and keept doing it for a while until it died. I have searched the forum for answers but havent been able to find anything good. This whole week it hasnt been able to boot. I tried pulling out the harddrive, switching memory modules, cleaning up the clogged heatshink without any resultats. I think the shutdown problem was due to the clogged heatsink and the computer overheateting. Now it won't boot at all.
When I press the powerbutton the fan spins up and the power led turns green. 4-5 sec after that fan stops and after few more sec the green led turns off but no boot.
looking for the latest chipest gm965 drivers and are they the video drivers or are these sepperate as im a little confused what i want to do is make sure that everything is upto data but being a new user i am out of my depth.
I am planing on buying a Sony Vaio F or FW.When I saw a Sony Vaio FW in Full HD in a store, I felt it hard to read text on it as my eyes started to hurt and I felt it was too bright.Is it just me ? or is it something you get used too ? Are there any improvements in the display of Sony VAIO F ?
I've just completed a CPU upgrade on my 5315 (to a T7300, which took 15 minutes!). I'm now thinking of upgrading the memory from my current 2GB @ 667 MHz (with the new CPU the memory runs at 667 MHz rather than 533 MHz with the old CPU) to 2GB @ 800 MHz.
However, I've read that the performance increase between 667 MHz and 800 MHz is very little, thus, it's not worth spending the money, even if it is only $AUD40.
Can anyone provide any input, benchmarks or experiences?
1. If I press the on switch, it doesn't turn on the laptop right away. I have to press it twice or three times and then it starts booting up. This occurs whether I am using the AC or just the battery which is fully charged.
2. My next problem is probably connected to problem one. If I try restart, it will not restart and I have to press the on/off button twice and then maybe it will reboot.
All the above just started after I tried increasing the memory of my laptop, 5315 to 4gb. Then I had a problem the screen went black but I realized later that my battery wasn't fully charged and when it was, my laptop was able to boot and work properly.I replaced the memory with original 2gb of ram.
Is the Acer laptop able to turn on with just AC and not the battery ?
I would like to upgrade my 5315-2153 laptop to a dvd writer. Which models could I use and will Xp recognize the writer installed and work properly?
Which Intel Core Duos types could I install instead of the Celeron CPU that this laptop has. Would the Core Duo CPU be pin compatable and all I would have to do is use new artic cpu thermal compound to make sure it is mounted properly and greased properly.
In the past week, my aspire 5315 running vista premium 32bit has been randomly shutting off for what seems like no apparent reason. There's no warning of the shut down, it just turns off. It does this whether connected to the internet or not, and there isn't any one program that's the common denominator. Also, it doesn't boot up successfully every time (maybe 1 out of every 4 attempts). Instead, it just stays on a black screen with a single white blinking horizontal dash (the character two spaces to the left of the backspace button + shift). The computer had started doing this initially when I installed the latest update through Windows Update. I used System Restore and the problem seemed to be fixed. Then the problem started again a couple days later while watching "Lost" on ABC.COM. I ran Windows Defender and it didn't come up with anything.
I've tried running Kaspersky a few times, but the computer shuts down well before the scan is finished (even in safe mode). Any ideas as to what the problem could be?
