Acer :: 5738z EPower Button Will Not Work Windows 7 Upgrade
Feb 6, 2010
I have a 5738z and upgraded to windows 7. I had to do a clean install as I upgraded to x64 Win7 from x86 vista to use the 4gb of RAM the machine has. The upgrade went fine, no problems. All drivers installed fine and the machine runs great. My problem is that the ePower button will not work no matter what I try (it's the P button on other models) and it wont light up green. I've used the Acer upgrade disk, which installed the launch manager software, but the button still wont work.
Wonder if anyone has upgraded to windows 7 x64 Home Premium and got the powersmart key working on this model? I have downloaded and installed the powersmart manager from the acer website but it has made no difference.
I have a problem on my laptop. My laptop is HP pavilion g4-1357tx, with Windows 7 64 bit, already updated with new BIOS provided in HP website.
I updated my laptop from Windows 7 32 bit to 64 bit 2 weeks ago. Since then, I can't use the alt buttons, both on the left and right. Some information on internet said that there might be some dusts under the buttons, and I've tried to clean it, but the problem still occur.
My laptop won't connect to nett both cable/ wifi, tried with all the drivers here in ACER, nothing..tried with a restored point, but wont get an old one, old enough, want to try a system recovery, already saved all the info, is an old pc, but still want to fix it!
I just did a clean install to Windows 7 professional 64-bit from Windows vista home premium 32-bit as my laptop is capable of running 64-bit version of windows.
However, i completely wiped out my drivers for my sony buttom functions such as the utility button for FN keys and also control centre, power management, event service and etc.
I have went to the Sony Europe esupport to get the drivers. Is there a particular order I need to follow while installing them since I read from somewhere that you need to install the drivers in a particular order for them to work since they are dependent. Also, many threads say to install the 'sony DLL utilities' or 'original utility package' file which does not apply to my Sony Vaio version. However, I did notice 'setting utility series' folder in the download driver section. Are they the same?
The wifi orange light does not change to white light after upgrading to windows 8 OS from windows home premium. i am using pavilion dv6-7011tx laptop, my product no. is. B0P39PA#ACJ this is very frustating as theres no wifi as well as bluetooth connectivity, the wireless button key solution is useless.
I recently bought an Acer Aspire 6935 and I'm very happy with the performance. I formatted the hard drive and installed vista x64. Now my laptop frequently overheats and then shuts down automatically. I just read that it might have someting to do with the epower management module, which I don't have anymore (after format). I can't find any downloads for my model;
i just installed a new 7200 hd and a fresh install of vista 32 what programs do i need to install? i thought i need to install the epower? is this true to have fan work right on cpu? should i flash my bios from 1.34 to 1.45?
I'm trying to get more grunt and more importantly more go/ less battery hammering (not at the same time..) out of an old TM240. So I bought a 2.8 P4 HT (SL7DS) which in theory should work in this board as it has the 852 chipset. However, when I fit it all I get is the wireless light comes on, and nothing more. Oh, and the light doesn't then go off when I press the power button again..
Works fine if I drop the Celeron back in though.
I can try sticking the P4 in a desktop I've got kicking around to make sure it works, but assuming it does, why doesn't it in the laptop? BIOS is the latest available and the board/ BIOS should be the same as the 250 series, which certainly came with P4 processors
I see in the 1410/1810 thread people uninstall this and it seems to help battery life. I want to see proof. Show tests, videos, photos, whatever proof you have that this software that Acer engineers designed is useless. I had an EEE before and it shipped with Asus's own power management software and I never had a problem with it working together with whatever Linux or Windows OS I used. So, lets see what proof you have that shows the epower management software is useless.
Is there any possibility to interact with ePower in Windows 7 clean installation? In original Vista that came wit notebook it had tray icon, but when I install this app in Win7 from provided archive (ePower_Acer_4.07.3008_Win7x86x64), there is no tray nor any launcheable app, even through there is epowertray.exe running in memory. An when I press ePower button (green battery with leaf), nothing actually happens, only indication is that icon is green lit and if I install launchmanager, there is visual indication on display too...
is i got a new Aspire E3-111 that has 2GB of ram, and i want to put one of my 4GB ram stick into my laptop but it doesnt work, the ram is the same type but it doesnt work. also the laptop freezes up when i play ME3 for more then 1 hour and i have to do a hard restart... i also made a video showing whats going on
Hey guys I have a Acer Aspire 5590. I installed empowering technology, then I installed enet, eperformance, and esettings for it, I tried installing epower management but it says I need net frame 1.1 but yet I installed 2.0 then 3.5 yesterday.. and it still doesn't work. I formatted the laptop yesterday, but when it was not formatted it had all the acer programs on it, such as the one where it controls the battery performance, so I could change the screen brightness, how fast the laptop goes and what the settings are when it's running on battery. What is that program called, could somebody send me a link so that I have all the acer programs that come with acer laptops? I have Windows XP
I started using my laptop with Windows 8 and everything was working fine. But then Windows upgraded to 8.1 and now I cannot get the Dolby Home Theater v4 to start, I always get the error message about driver.
I just got my new HDX16 and for the first couple of minutes the backspace, enter, and number lock keys didn't work. But after a couple of minutes they work. They have been working since. I have shutdown and rebooted a couple of times and they are still working.
I migrated win 8.1 to the ssd on my wd black2 (128ssd + 1tb hdd). It also took the first two partitions shown. I then activated the 1tb drive and copied the next two paritions to the SSD in the same sequence and size as original drive.
Then I copied the other remaining paritions to the END of my 1tb hdd. So all partitions are there same sizes same sequences as before execpt for the hdd in the middle. See screenshot.
One key makes a backup to the 1tb hdd which is what I wanted so as to save space on the SSD. But the novo button does not work which makes it useless. How can I fix this?
I know theres lots of threads on this but this is specific to having the partitions split on the ssd and the hdd.
Drive 0 is the ssd/hdd drive 1 is the original drive ( that okr worked on) its a y510p
