Acer :: Aspire 5738G Heating
I bought an acer aspire 5738G a couple of days ago with windows 7 x64 installed ,catalyst 9.9. When playing any game or using any 3D demanding application both my GPU temp. jumps up to 85-95 degrees C, and the CPU to 75-85 degrees C. according to GPU-Z my fan speed is always at 30% no matter how hot the lappy gets. I also wanna mention I didn't OC or use any modded stuff yet.

My questions are:

-Are these normal temps since this is my first acer and my previous lappy which wasn't an acer with a Nvidia Geforce GO7900 never got past the 75 degrees barrier

- Is there something wrong with the fan or it is supposed to kick in only at critical heat point

Acer :: Aspire 5738G Fan Runs Almost Constantly
When I power on, after about 5-6 minutes the fan (I assume the CPU fan) kicks in. However, it then seems to remain on constantly until the laptop is turned off, even if I'm only idling. This is slightly annoying, not just because of the noise, but also it seems to have quite a noticeable effect on the battery life.

I have installed SpeedFan to keep track of the CPU temp and it seems that the fan kicks in initally when the core temps reach about 35 C, but then the fan does not switch off, even when temps drop back down to 25/26 C, which seems very cool.

On every other laptop I have used (none of which were Acers), the CPU fan only comes on now and again, as and when it is needed.

So, is this normal behaviour or is there possibly a fault with the fan control mechanism ? If so I will consider taking back to the retailer for an exchange.

Acer :: 5738G Bottom Vent Built Closed
I bought my Acer Aspire 5738G laptop last november and this month I experienced for the first time my laptop shutting down by itself while playing cs-source.

The laptop is quite hot and upon searching the net found out that it's most likely due to overheating.

My question is about the ventilation at the bottom of 5738G.

Is it supposedly closed? No holes/slots? Cause I think it's the cause of overheating.

The system doesn't have a way to take-in air

It's like it was designed to be a bottom vent for air intake but then forgot to make holes in it.

I also searched for it's manual and confirmed that it is a ventilation slot.

It even says there "do not cover or obstruct the opening of the fan".

(I've got a screen shot attached. I'm talking about part 6. That part of my laptop doesn't have holes/slots but clearly there should be according to the manual.

Acer :: Inactive 4500MHD Inside The Aspire 5738G
I have bought the Aspire 5738G over half a year ago and it was just a couple of days back from now, when Everest showed me a hardware report about an integrated Intel 4500MHD onboard, which is inactive.

I couldn't find any info on this matter online, so I thought that with your help and my readiness to disassemble my laptop, we could figure out a way to make use of this integrated chip, which would result in serious power savings when running on battery.

I am thinking that maybe there is some place in the circuitry that was cut in order to disable the chip or something, or that it has no access to the LCD and HDMI ports.

Also, I downloaded a Service Manual for my model and I couldn't find my 5738G specification in it.

Acer :: Windows 7 Welcome Screen On 1410 / Power Draw
I just received my 1410 last week and I'm absolutely thrilled with it! It runs so much faster, has better battery life and better build quality, than my HP Mini 311. I had some spare time this past weekend, so I installed another copy of Win 7 on it and it's now a dual-booter. I have re-installed most of the Acer software - but I cannot find a way to re-install the green Acer welcome screen.

Sony :: Vaio Smart Network Utility- Required? Start-up Performance
I have a Vaio Z36GD (Asian version of the Z69). I recently cleaned the hard drive and reinstalled the OS from the recovery CD's I created when I originally purchased the machine.

I have run all the updates for Windows, BIOS, etc. Running VISTA Business 64 bit SP2.

For the most part, the machine is performing well.

However, the Vaio Smart Network utility seems to slow down the start-up process (it is always the last thing to become available...with a pause and the cursor clocking for about 10 seconds before it is complete). I don't have much else running at start-up (NIS 2010 and other standard utilities...pointer, etc.).

Anyway, can I remove or disable the Vaio Smart Network utility and still effective use and manage Wifi, Bluetooth, and LAN connections? Has anyone else noticed this performance issue and addressed it?

However, does anyone have Windows 7 RC with the VAIO Power Management utility installed?

If so, do you also see the issue where the PM plan is not called 'VAIO Optimized' but rather something like 'SPMResMui.dll,-100'? If you do not see this, could you please tell me the version of VAIO Power Management you are using?

Acer :: 9300 Won't Power Up
My 9300 just stopped working and the power supply blinks when plugged in to the laptop but is constant when not connected to the laptop. I'm thinking it's not the power supply because of this.

I have trier removing the battery, holding in the power for 30 seconds, powering up with the battery out etc. I'm don't think it is the battery either

I have also searched the forum but can't find anything that is similar. I did see a page on the net that said it may be a short on the motherboard but it was talking about dells.

It is sitting beside my bed and last night every 10 seconds it made 4 light clicking sounds that lasted in total about 1 second.

Acer :: 5520 Won't Power On
I am having problems with my brother's acer laptop. It's an Acer Aspire 5520. The first time we experienced this problem I tried removing the battery and I placed the battery back again. I plugged the ac adaptor into another outlet. I was able to get a a greenlight on the battery and on the hard drive. For some reason I am not able to get a greenlight on both indicators. I tried plugging the laptop on another outlet. It seems I'm not able to power it up anymore. Is it the battery or the power adapter?

Acer :: 4810TZ: Power Management
When I unplug my laptop from the AC adapter, Acer's ePower system automatically dims the LCD brightness to a setting that is 2 levels above the lowest (and 7 below the highest). However, when resuming the laptop from standby, I noticed that the setting is increased to 4 levels above the lowest (and 5 below the highest). I'm kind of a stickler for these sorts of things and would prefer for Windows not to change the LCD brightness if the ePower manager is supposed to be handling it. Is anyone else noticing this, and if so, have you corrected it somehow?

FYI, I should mention that I recently downloaded an updated version of Acer's ePower management system from Acer's support website - this updated version corrected an error that was occurring where my optical drive wouldn't "wake up" after ePower management shut it down, so I would prefer not to downgrade.

I'm frankly a little confused about where exactly all the Acer-specific power options are located. What is the difference between ePower and PowerSmart? Or are they the same thing? I could go on, but I think I've raised enough questions.

Acer :: Aspire 36802682 Won't Power Up
Have me a dead Acer Aspire 3680. My son was using it and it just went black, with no power and no signs of life.

I basically get nothing when I plug in the power and hit the power button. I removed the battery and tested with just the AC adapter. Still no signs of life. No LEDs, etc.

I completely disassembled the beast to see if the power board had the jack still securely attached and it is still fine.

I had the AC adapter tested, so it is fine.

So I guess my question is, how can I verify whether this is a problem with the MB/CPU or if it is a problem with the little power board not delivering power to the motherboard?

I can check for voltage at the battery charge pins. I'm seeing voltage on 3 of the 5 pins. The large one being ground, I'm assuming. Should I see voltage on the remaining 4?

I don't want to replace the MB/CPU and have it be the power board that is the problem, and vice-versa.

Acer :: Aspire Laptop Power
I'm having major trouble with my laptop (an Acer Aspire 3660) which is about 2 years old now. I don't know if there is a problem with the internal power socket or something else, but sometimes when it is plugged it just won't run off the mains or charge the battery. Sometimes I can get it to charge up, seemingly by rotating the power cord cable but at other times it will randomly go to battery even though absolutely nothing has moved, and sometimes it will go to battery power with the slightest little nudge. I don't think this could be related to the battery as the battery seems to work fine (although it does drain quickly I guess it's pretty old in laptop terms). Has anyone else had this problem or have any suggestions? I bought a new power cable (completely new including power pack and the plug end) but the problem still happens.

Acer :: Timeline 4810T- Power
I have an Acer Timeline 4810T, and recently, I have been having a really weird issue with power. When I first got the laptop, I would plug in the power adapter and it would immediately start charging. Now, when I plug it in, it takes 30 seconds to a minute for the adapter to be recognized and the laptop to start charging. I'll plug it in and nothing will happen, and then after a while, the green battery off icon will appear on the screen and the charging light will come on.

Its a really weird issue, and I really hope is not going to get worse. I already had to return one of these because keys on the keyboard stopped working. I really don't want to have to send this one back.

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Wont Power On Via AC
I've got an Acer Aspire 5315 and for some reason the laptop has stopped working correctly. The laptop will turn on and work fine when the battery is in, but when I try and charge the battery from the PSU plugged in nothing happens and the battery is starting to drain. I've taken the battery out and tried to power the laptop up but there seems to be no power getting to the laptop. The PSU is showing a green light on the block. I have also been advised that it could be the AC socket on the laptop, but I've now replaced this and its still not working.

I haven't got another PSU. Could there be any other reason why the laptop wont turn on?

Acer :: Aspire 3003LCI Power Adapter Bad
My power adapter went bad on my Aspire 3003LCI.

The power adapter has the following
specs.
Input: AC100-240V
Output: DC19V 3.42A
Power: 65W

I purchased a Targus APA10US universal power adapter. Its specs are as follows.
Input: AC100-230V
Output: 15-24V -2A
Power: 65W Max

My Aspire calls for a #14 tip, but that one did not come with the adapter. Can I use another Targus adapter (#3) with a different tip without doing damage to the PC? I have been told that the tip does some type of voltage regulation and adjusts to the settings of the PC.

Acer :: Aspire 2930z Automatic Power Off
I have Acer aspire 2930z with Windows 7 ultimate (64 bit) installed, the problem I face is sometimes, when I play games on it (the Need for speed undercover). The laptop gets very hot and automatically goes power off, I have to unplug the AC adaptor wire, replug and then only I can switch on the pc or else if I try to switch on without un plugging, nothing happens.

This is a problem for what I am really worried, well sir, I use my laptop with my battery but it is connected to electricity all the time as we have some electric break down problem(s) here, so do you think the pc gets heated because of battery plugged?

Infact before when I got this laptop new, I used to play for 3-4 hours the game and nothing used to happen.

I bought the laptop exactly a year back in march 2009.

I have 4 GB or ram, 320 GB hard and 2.17 dual core processor.

Acer :: 8930g Power Laptop Is ALWAYS Plugged In
I own a Acer Aspire 8930g which I bought at the end of November 08.

Ive been having power problems, Id be playing a game or just browsing the web, and the machine just switches off.
Upon booting up again and logging into windows I notice the battery is completely flat, and is charging at 1%

The laptop is ALWAYS plugged in.

It seems to run down the battery if the computer is put into sleep mode, even though the power is plugged in, and also, I think, cant be 100% but seems to drain the battery even when fully shut down with the power plugged in.

Strrange problems and is really annoying as you would imagine if your in the middle of a good game or halfway through a good movie.

Acer :: 7720: Power Settings - When Unplugging
I have an Acer 7720-6604 notebook. For Power Settings I usually keep it on "High Performance" when plugged in (I'm usually gaming). I've found that when I unplug it with this setting, it acts like it's on "Power Saver" mode, which equals a big drop in frame rates when I game. I checked out event viewer and it shows this message as associated:

"Event 2, Kernel-Processor-Power

Performance power management features on processor 1 are disabled due to a firmware problem. Check with the computer manufacturer for updated firmware."


I've looked all over and can't find any way to fix this problem. I really haven't seen anyone else have the problem actually. It's bad though because it really makes games unplayable and shouldn't be happening on a relatively new laptop (bought it only about a year ago). I don't know what firmware I need to update or what I need to do if that's not it.

I did uninstall all of the empowering technology programs, including epower management. I'm not sure if it's related... I thought it was just a power scheming tool and windows has it's own in the control panel anyways.

Someone please help. I don't want to have to format or send it in for repairs if I can help it. Acer has an expensive repair fee (so I hear). I will format if I have to but I don't know that it will fix anything.
