Acer :: 6920G Freezing Up

Dec 24, 2008

Any 6920G owner have their hard drive access light stuck on "on" for about 30 seconds or so and have their laptops freeze for this duration? Freeze as in as soon as I click any window, it turns white. This happens every now and then, doesn't matter what I'm doing.

Acer :: Aspire 6920g Freezing

Apr 1, 2010

The laptop randomly freezes and is unable to run after (need to turn it off using the power button).

- I scanned it for spyware and viruses
- Checked the drive using the windows tool
- I did not install any new software lately
- Installed the newest Intel Matrix Storage Manager (since I found it may be causing freezing problem)
- I noticed increased power consumption while running on battery (from 15mWh to over 22mWh)

I'm afraid this really may be hardware related issue.

Acer :: 6290 Freezing

Oct 20, 2009

My problem is that every time I boot up to Vista. It freezes about booting up Vista. This problem is when I connect to AC Adapter.

Without AC Adapter, it does not freezes.

It also doesnot freeze at SAFE mode.

Is there anyone have a solution or advice I can try.

How can I flash the bios in SAFE MODE. I cant do it in NORMAL MODE cos it needs me to connect the AC Adapter and then It will hang.

Acer :: Freezing At Windows XP Logo

Oct 23, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5710Z which originally had Vista but I had it reformatted to XP.

We've been using it for a little less than a year without much problems until about a couple of months ago when it started to freeze at random times at the windows logo (the one with the blue thing scrolling below). So we had to turn it off then on again and then choose the option to start on safe mode, which worked.

So I've tried lots of things to find out the source of the problem. Apparently, it's not a virus. We've tried to disable all the stuff at the startup but it didn't help. I've been looking around forums and stuff but none has given an answer to my problem.

So I brought it to these tech guys from school, who thought that the problem might be with the drivers. One of the guys saw that there were two intel graphics cards (Intel 945 GM driver) showing up in the device manager, like it was installed twice or something. He thought that might be the problem so he uninstalled the driver and the freezing stopped. I tried downloading newer drivers (actually, I'm not sure if they were newer, I think they were the same as the old one) for the graphics and each time I installed, the freezing problem came back. So the last few months, I've been using the laptop without the graphics card.

Acer :: Travelmate 8571 Freezing

Sep 10, 2009

A week ago i bought an Acer Travelmate 8571 with Linus. I installed legal WinXP with SP3 and latest drivers/updates.

After start the computer freezes within 10-20 minutes independently on the running programs. To reboot it one has to use the Power button.

This is not the overheating: the ventilator works and the air temperature is cool. I guess, it can be either problem of the BIOS (v.1.02), which is not able to work with XP, or a wrong installation of the XP.

Does anyone have an idea on the source of the trouble? I would like to keep the notebook due to the advantages of extremely low noise production and long accumulator working time.

Acer :: Aspire 6920 Freezing

Apr 17, 2010

My Acer Aspire 6920 Laptop freezes occasionally, and nothing but a cold shutdown fixes it. Sometimes after I turn it back on again, the keyboard is unresponsive until after I've logged into my Windows 7. If I was playing music at the time of the freeze, it plays the last few seconds of music in slow motion over and over again.

There does't seem to be anything in particular that causes the crashes (sometimes I'm running games, other times it was idling).

How can I stop it freezing?

What I've tried: Reinstalling my Windows 7 64bit, Installing the latest drivers (from various sources)

I took a video of the laptop in it's frozen state, if this would help anyone? If it would, I can upload it to youtube... Basically nothing but a cold shutdown (holding in the power button) does anything.

Acer :: New 5730z, Error, Freezing

Dec 14, 2008

Just bought a new Acer laptop 5730z. (Acer Aspire 5730Z-322G16Mi)

At first, when installing windows vista premium I got an error 0x d000000D in the very beginning after chosen language setup.. Then the system restarted and tried to re-install(?) software or so..

Acer eRecovery Management
Restore partition
harddisk0partition2

When it had done it 80-90 %, it started all over again three-four times. It stopped always somewhere between 80-90%. It took 1-2 hours to get Vista installed on this computer, after several restarting. After I got Vista installed, then Windows-updates won't work. The system freezes always when trying to get updates. Browser Firefox crashes all the time, even task manager crashes..

Is the computer broken or is there something terrible wrong with vista? Maybe problem with memory? Motherboard? Corrupted harddisk, install-files? And yes, no cd's came with.. I didn't even manage to burn eRecovery dvd's (needed two disks). After one disk the eRecovery just stopped and said, that disk cannot be created.

Acer :: 4810 Tthe End Of The Freezing Saga

Feb 7, 2010

I flashed the BIOS, I tested the hardware, I custom installed Windows 7, yet still the freezing continued.

Now I've custom installed Windows 7 again, and this time I haven't installed or updated any drivers, apart from those that were installed during the OS installation.

So far, no freezing.

Obviously, this has limited some of the functions on my notebook, so I was wondering what was the best way to install each driver, one-by-one, to find out which one was the culprit?

I may leave it a few days, to make sure the freezing issue has gone away, but should I set a system restore point before every installation?

Should I also switch driver download to manual? I believe Windows will always ask permission to download (and I presume install) new drivers, but should I make sure?

Acer :: TravelMate 2480 Laptops Freezing

Jan 8, 2008

I am part of a large research study and we have about 150 Acer TravelMate 2480 laptops. We stick these laptops behind or under furniture, out of the way, and leave them there untouched. They have a couple programs running to collect data and that is all. We only connect to them remotely occasionally if something seems wrong with the data collection from a house. By the way, they are connected wirelessly to routers we put in as well.

Anyway, the problem with these laptops is that we have had quite a few hang/freeze inexplicably. When they hang, the data collection programs stop and it becomes remotely inaccessible. After hard booting them off and restarting them they sometimes only show a black/blank screen, but otherwise act like they are started up just fine. Other times after hard booting them off and restarting them they act normal showing all screens during startup. The windows event logs show no errors or indicators of commonality between the crashes. All drivers are up to date. We are running Windows XP on them.

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Windows 7 Freezing

Dec 16, 2009

I have been having issues since upgrading my laptop to windows 7. I initially upgraded to windows 7 32bit and within 30mins the laptop started freezing randomly. Over the last month or so, it hasnt got any better, i have downloaded all the correct drivers and updated everything. Yet nothing stops it.

Due to be a student i was able to get windows prof 7 64 bit so i thought i would do a fresh install, so i formatted my PC and installed the new windows 7. However, the freezing is still happening. Now i have read you can flash you bios which i was a little apprenhensive about. I cant Acers support site and emailed them, and they were no help at all.

I have tried it today and have gotten no where. Tried to run the windows based one from Acer, and it wouldnt run. So then i made my USB stick bootable, downloaded phlash16.exe tried the various ways suggested on this site and others...and all that happens is that it runs in the DOS and just hangs on identifying flash memory part type.

I really dont know what i can do next, and the freezing is getting quite annoying.

Acer :: 4810tz Keeps Freezing- Where Are The Minidumps File

Apr 23, 2010

my 4810tz keeps freezing, i've tried all the fixes on this forum, apart from re-installing windows 7 (I cant see how this can help).

what I need to know is how I can get the minidump file when my laptop locks up?

i've looked at the event log and all it says is event 41 kernal power, i need to find out what application/driver is causing the crashes!

I can't believe this can't be fixed, this is really bad on acers part.

a note to make though, this freezing happened on my gf's laptop, and she was running a core duo, so maybe its the proccessor?

Acer Aspire E1-522g :: Laptop Keeps On Freezing?

Dec 18, 2014

I have a problem with my laptop, whenever i play a game it will froze on random. I know the computer is still running since the sound is still being heard but the screen is completely frozen. So i need to close the game and re-launch it again everytime this happens. The odd thing to me is it only happens to a certain game. But it doesn't occur to other games even games that requires higher specifications.The game i'm talking about is DotA 2, is there something on the DotA 2 engine that makes this occur?

Acer Aspire V3-371 :: Touchpad Freezing Randomly

Sep 22, 2014

I have a brand new Aspire V3-371-596F.  Since the first boot, I have been having problems with the touchpad freezing randomly.  The two finger sroll is reversed and I cannot access any settings to change the direction, either.  I downloaded the suggested Synaptics driver from the Acer website, but Windows will not let me install the driver for the touchpad. 
 
When I go into Device Manager -> Mice and other pointing devices, there is only one device listed: HID-compliant mouse.  It says the manufacturer is Microsoft, and not Synaptics.  When I try to Update Driver, I select the downloaded Synaptic driver it says the best driver for my device is already installed.
 
How do I tell the computer that it does not have a Microsoft mouse installed so I can use the correct Synaptics driver?  
 
I should also mention that a Synaptics HID Device does show up under Device Manager -> Human Interface Devices.  However, windows does not seem to recognize that this device is the mouse.

Acer Aspire V5 :: Keep Freezing Up - Cannot Access Recovery Partition

Dec 10, 2014

My Aspire V5-552PG-X809 has frozen 5 times in the last two days. Why is this happening, and how do I stop it. I just got it back from being serviced about two weeks ago, and did a fresh install of windows recently.
 
Here's the timeline for my system: About 6 weeks ago the system froze and needed a hard restart. Upon restarting, nothing would load. I couldn't access the recovery partition, and repair media did nothing.  I sent it back to ACER for repair, and they replaced the HDD. It ran fine for about two weeks, but I was not paying attention during setup and put in the wrong username (This normally wouldn't be an issue, except it changed the name of the user directory and was a hassle for some R code that I had written). I reinstalled windows and fixed the directory issue about two days ago. Since that time I have had about 5 system freezes requiring hard restarts, and every time I'm paranoid that it will kill my HDD again.

Acer :: New HDD In 6920g

Mar 11, 2009

I have bought a 500gb SATA HDD to replace the stock 250gb one.

I would install the drivers from the website but for some reason they don't seem to detect the webcam etc. I also can not find the link for the bluray player.

Is there a version of the original restore image on the interwebs anywhere

Acer :: My 6920g And WoW

Nov 9, 2009

I have noticed my 6920g's fan to go annoying loud when playing Warcraft, which indeed is a pretty graphic instensive game depending where you are in WoW.

My question is to anyone else who owns a 6920g and plays WoW, do you have the same fan problems as me? Sure I understand it isnt going to be silent but recently it has seemed to get worse and it's really doing my nut in.

Comments and thoughts, obviously welcome.

I tried doing a search for similar problems but I kept getting a black screen for some reason.

Acer Aspire 7740G :: Beeping On Startup And Freezing Randomly?

Sep 19, 2014

My Acer 7740G has been acting strange lately, it makes a beeping noise of approximately 45 beeps (not exactly sure, because as they are quite quick) when it is restarted. When it is turned off and on everything is fine, the beeping is only when it is being restarted.
 
Also it freezes randomly no matter what games/programs/apps are running. For example it freezes while playing heavy game, and also while playing Minesweeper with nothing else running in the background. I had to reinstall Windows several times, but the freezing keeps occuring without bsod. Also when restart is needed during installation it beeps like that every time on startup.

Acer Aspire E1-572 :: Constantly Freezing - Can't Even Access Task Manager

Sep 15, 2014

Last week I bought an Acer Aspire E1-572 and from day one it keeps freezing to the point where I can't even access the Task Manager. Googling around this seems to be quite a common complaint. Is this an issue with Acers or Windows 8/8.1.

Acer :: 6920G:hacked By Pca

Oct 4, 2009

I have a 6920G with 4Gb of RAM, a C2D T9300 and the Geforce 9500GS running Vista 64-bit.

For some reason I'm only getting 3DMark03 scores around 5200-5300 but I've seen benchmarks of identical systems much much higher.
dfegtersgft
Why is this?

My brother-in-law has a 6920 with a gig less RAM, a lesser C2D T5700 but a Radeon HD3650 and his 3DMark03 score is 10500.

Should my 9500GS really suck so much ?

Acer :: 6920g Overheating Or

Dec 29, 2008

Some of us know that the 6929g sometimes mostly during gaming downclocks....

But can anybody explain to me, why i can get the following temps (tested separately)

cpu, max before downclocking:
realtemp: 91
hw monitor: 76

gpu, stock powermizer on
gpu-z 73 (stopped myself still no downclocking)

But then when i start playing cod5 my cpu starts downclocking @ 58 (hw monitor), while GPU @ 63....

Why does this only happen while gaming when it seems that both cpu and gpu can handle much higher temps?

Combined it should reach even higher temps but it doesn't because it downclocks?

Is there something else that can force the cpu to downclock?

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Fps

Jul 16, 2009

I've got the acer aspire 6920G, and when i play world of warcraft my fps drops to 7 in 25man raids. I play with really low options.

I've always had low fps, i tried installing windows Xp, vista and now windows 7 and nothing helps.

Now i must say, win7 had the best result. My fps increased in major cities, but in raids it's still the same thing.

I defragged my HD, I use a 64bit to use my full ram, I run no background programs, all options are on low, and i still get 7fps.
