Acer :: 8920G - Randomly Turns Off/has A Blue Screen

Jul 2, 2009

for the past 3 days my Acer 8920G has been acting..very strange. It randomly turns off/has a blue screen, then I can't use it for 6-10 hours before it works again, but then only for 30 min then repeats. I've checked the temperatures for the HDD/CPU/GPU on the time I was on, and the HDD was 58C, CPU and GPU were around 50C (With FF3.5, iTunes, MSN and Vuze running). I've taken off the back panel and removed the dust but that didn't do anything at all. This morning I turned it on after leaving it upside down (back panel on) to vent all the air (if I left it open more dust would've gone in) and it wouldn't even hit the desktop. Kept crashing when it hits the desktop (that's basically what happens when I try and turn it on after it has a blue screen or turns off). So I opened the back panel and let my hand hover over the components - no heat what so evr radiated from it, which means it can't have overheated...right? Now I can only run it with the back panel off, which I'm doing now in a well ventilated area.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W520 - Screen Turns Off Randomly Until Shake It

Dec 28, 2014

I have a w520 that is out of warranty. From time to time, the screen just turns off while I'm using it (no, not a dimming/screen off during idle isse). Everything else works perfectly though. I have to shake the laptop (lol, seriously...) and the screen comes back on! It's been getting more and more frequent. What gives? Is this a known issue? Is there some loose connection somewhere inside? What should I check?

Acer :: Gemstone Blue 6920g/8920g Laptop Case/sleeve

May 16, 2008

I have ordered an Acer Gemstone Blue 6920g which is due to be delivered next week sometime.

I was wondering if anyone else already owns one of the gemstone blue laptops and has tried a laptop bag or case out for it.

The gemstone blue laptops come in a 16 inch and 18.4 inch screen size and have an aspect ratio of 16:9 instead of 16:10.

Acer :: Aspire 8920G - Black Screen -> Alt+f10 Failure

Jul 27, 2009

I have an Aspire 8920G laptop.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled (with no installation nor recovery disks delivered).

I accidently hit the arcade button on the cinedash panel, instead of the power button. The computer started directly up into arcade deluxe, after a short install. Nice feature

I thought, and choose to exit arcade through the exit feature. Then I noticed that the computer prepared to hibernate, but instead it shut off after it finished.

After turning the computer on, a small complaint about improper closing the computer popped up, and I choose to start windows normally. Now the boot loader ran, and when I expected the logon screen, instead I met a black screen with a working mouse cursor. I eventually had to force power down, since crtl alt delete didn't work.

Since then, all boot options, safe mode etc leads to the same black screen.

Vista looks like it's going to boot normally then goes to a black screen with a working mouse pointer. The hard disk light just pulses every couple seconds.

I tried extracting the battery but it doesn't work.

I tried to alt+f10 - Vista Recovery page, so it gives me menu called "Edit Boot Options". There is the path to winload.exe and this:
"Partition: 2
Hard Disk: b8f0ffa4

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
]"
That's all what I have when I press ALT + F10.

I could type "Enter" = nothing happened
"Esc" = shutdown the system
"F8" = go to recovery page.

Hit f8:

Goes to a "Vista system recovery" or something like that, i'm not quite sure what its name was. Anyway it had about 6 options, including "Get windows to check for and correct the faults on your disk" in a little bit more high tech talk. And "Restore to a earlier point". Since the "Checking and correct faults" said it was recommended, i thought i'd go for that.

It ran its tool, told me to click the restart button. Runs it again, tells me to restart again.

And now it enters its final state - Its virtually dead :|. If i turn it on, it will go to the black screen, that talks about an improper shutdown, with the options for Safe Mode, Safe mode with networking.. etc. Any of these 4 options all result in the same black screen displaying only the mouse cursor.

I was not trying to install or upgrade nothing, was not trying to change form vista to xp or so.

I have not deleted any hidden partition (as far as I know...)

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 16Touch Buttons Faulty- Adjusts Volume/bass And Turns Off Wireless Randomly

Jun 10, 2009

if anyone has had the same problem as me with the HP HDX 16. Randomly, even as I am typing here, the volume bar (with treble, bass etc) will appear on screen and will increase/reduce very quickly as if im pushing down on the touch buttons, this stops me being able to type, sometimes crashing the computer.

At the same time, this fault also occurs for the wireless LAN button to the far right, which will randomly disable (turn red) as if i'd touched it, sometimes causing the desktop to crash but more importantly causing me to lose connection and have to reconnect on a frequent basis.

I've had the notebook for over 6 months, and while i did have this occur on very rare occasions, since a couple days ago it has increased to a point where it happens all the time, including after a restart. I have tried searching through google to see if the problem is known, and i have seen a similar account on a customer review website. I have used HP health check and followed the updates supplied including that for the touch smart buttons and a BIOS flash.

Acer Aspire 5517 :: Screen Turns Black After 1 Second

Jan 15, 2015

I have repaired a few laptop in my time so when a friend said his screen was black but he could read it with a flashlight I guessed right away it was an inverter problem.
 
I got a new inverter off of *bay, carefully removed the display bezel, swapped in the new inverter and powered it up.  Successfully boots into Windows !  Shut it down, screwed the inverter down, put the bezel back on and now the display comes on for 1 second, just long enough to see that "Acer" splash screen, and then goes black.  Yes you can still read the screen with a flashlight.
 
Checked the power in and out wires, they look good. Re-seated both connectors.  unscrewed the inverter board from the display so that it is :floating". Nothing.  Swapped in the old inverter and it acts the same ?

Acer Aspire 5742ZG :: Suddenly Screen Freezes And Turns Off

Feb 15, 2015

Today I was using my laptop (Acer Aspire 5742G) normally and then suddenly my screen freezes and turns off. The picture at that moment when the screen froze was covered with green horizontal lines and some small green squares and then the screen  switched off while the laptop continued to operate normally.
 
I tried to restart my laptop, but the screen does not turn on, and looks like laptop is working normally because I can hear the windows login  sound (led indicators for WIFI and read data from the HDD are working). I tried to connect the laptop and TV via an HDMI cable, but the TV does not get any picture.

HP/Compaq :: Dv2700t- Wireless... Caused Blue Screens/crashes Randomly While Using Internet

Mar 21, 2009

I had a dv2700t, with a problem I described in this forum some time ago... I didn't manage to solve the problem and HP couldn't/wouldn't "fix" it... the problem was that the wireless... caused blue screens/crashes randomly while using internet (downloading large and small torrent files for example) this happened ONLY when using WIRELESS connection.

I now, after nagging on HP for months, own a dv7-1290.

Imagine my surprise when I get the same problem...the only difference that I've been able to discern between this problem and the old problem is that this computer doesn't crash the UBUNTU live cd that the other computer managed to do......

Acer Aspire 7560-sb416 :: Screen Randomly Not Working?

Feb 11, 2015

 I recently started having some trouble with my laptop, the screen wouldn't come on during powerup, fans and hard drive sounded to be running.  This has happened 3 times since it started a few days ago.  I was able to get the screen on by plugging in my parents old monitor into the serial port, it just popped up in the same instant I plugged it in.  I have also had my usb ports stop functioning.
 
On a forum somewhere that I cant find again, people with similar problems were told to take the back off the laptop and hit some sort of reset button on the motherboard.  Should I try this?  How can I find it?

Acer Aspire R7 572 :: Touchscreen Mouse Pointer Randomly Jumps All Over The Screen

Oct 21, 2014

Recently started having a problem with the mouse pointer randomly jumping all over the screen. It's gotten so bad that I can't even use the computer at this time because the pointer won't stay in the same place long enough for me to type or select anything. I typically use the laptop in the screen forward configuration so I don't use the touch pad and nothing is touching it. I use the touchscreen about half the time and use an external USB mouse the rest of the time. It makes no difference which method I use or whether the external mouse is connected or not. as my fancy 4-month old laptop is essentially useless at this point.

Acer :: 6935G, New CPU, Blue Screen

Jan 18, 2010

Upgraded my laptop to a T9400

It runs fine when plugged in, encoding video etc.... The issue is when the laptop is running from the battery, it'll just bluescreen within about 5 mins of unplugging it... every time without fail. I have the latest BIOS 1.13 installed.

I'm guessing it's because it's an engineering sample? Would formatting the PC be worth a shot? I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate at the moment.

Acer :: RAM Upgrade- Blue Screen

Sep 20, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 3690 running Vista, which I bought a year ago. It came with one 512mb stick of RAM, which I coped with but was really pretty slow. Obviously. Anyway, I took it to a shop to get some more fitted about three weeks ago, they put in two 1gb sticks.

Ever since then I've been getting sporadic blue screen, when I never had a single one in the year I've had it.

Sometimes certain pieces of software seem to set it off (Deluge, and either Total Recorder or Skype, I haven't figured out which or if it's a combination yet) which I've been using the entire year with no problems. Sometimes it just seems to happen for no real reason.

And most annoyingly of all, it often happens on start up, it'll bluescreen and restart and eventually I'll get it to let me into Safe Mode, and from there I can restart properly and it'll let me into Vista proper.

Acer :: Acer 6930ZG With A Fresh Install Of Windows 7 RC 32bit - MapleStory Blue Screen Of Death

Aug 15, 2009

I have an Acer 6930ZG with a fresh install of windows 7 RC 32bit. I can play Call Of Duty 4, Counter Strike, Flatout 2 etc. with no problems! But when I try to open MapleStory a blue screen appears, and begin to make a physcial memory dump? . MapleStory is a 2D-game, and Call Of Duty requires much more.

I made a little research, and I found out that alot of people have the same problem, and they said it was caused by a conflict with a program or hardware drivers. I have tried to delete my NVIDIA driver, and install it again. No luck.

And yes, I have also tried to run MapleStory in compatibily mode

As I said: It's only in MapleStory I experience the problem, and I don't think it's ram-failure, since I have seen the same problem on a different computer, and I can play Call of Duty 4.

Here is the system log:
Problemsignatur:
Navn p problemhndelse:BlueScreen
OS-version:6.1.7100.2.0.0.256.1
