Acer :: 8930g (from 2008) Laptop Suddenly Turned Off And Now Won't Boot
Oct 12, 2009
Acer here. It's an older 8920g, but it has a 18.4inch screen and an Nvidia 9500 GS card
Basically here's how it goes:
Laptop unplugged, full battery or near full, placed on a bed (you can see where this is going), playing emulator games
Later, it suddenly turns off.
Upon trying to turn it back straight away, the laptop turns on, but only a blank screen is present.
I recommended to leave laptop off for 2 odd hours. Tried again after 2 hours, same result.
I got hold of the laptop now, basically it turns on, then suddenly flicks off and then back on again, and does.... nothing. The audio/media pad responds though (i.e. hold and mute button is responsive). I tried to take out the battery and turn it on, nothing.
Then I put the battery back in and turn it on, same result. Screen remains black throughout all scenarios.
I turned laptop on today and the touchpad is just not working. Has this happened to anyone else? I looked for drivers but only found vista ones which I installed but still not working. Thankfully I have a bluetooth mouse but it is not that good and I like to use the touchpad.
Using windows 7 32 bit. I might install the OS again but does this sound like a hardware failure?
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 (N5040) and currently having problems with it. I was watching something this morning and suddenly the screen turned green and then shut off. It turns on but the screen refuses to. I first expected that the screen is just unplugged inside the computer so I tried to hook it up to my TV via Hdmi and oddly it didn't do anything.I took it all apart disconnecting everything and then reconnecting everything. Everything seemed to be in good shape. No signs of shorts. Then after letting it run I noticed it beep 4 times. According to Dell 4 beeps mean "Read/Write error." I don't know if they meant the ram or hdd so I tried isolating both sticks of ram and no difference. I tried putting in two different hdds, nothing different. Even if they were I don't know why the screen wouldn't turn on and the bios wouldn't try to load. I suspect that the gpu is just fried. Dell Inspiron 15 (N5040), Intel i3, 8 gb of ram. Windows 7.
I have an Acer 8930G, it's knocking on some years (approx 7ish) and this is the first problem I have had with it. When i turn it on, the normal Acer screen shows up and then where it would normally load to windows it just blacks out. There is still power as the all the lights are still working and there is a white-ish light which looks inside the base of the screen. I have looked around on the web and have tried the flashlight on the screen and also removing battery / power cable and holding down the power button for a minute and rebuilding and trying again, but to no avail. I am able to get onto the BIOS screen, and it did look like the boot device in position 1 was the BD drive, I moved this back to the hard drive but still the same....
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.
I have an Acer 4810TZ timeline (SU4100 processor). I had charged the battery up to 100% and then left on an 11 day vacation. When I came back, I found the battery to have only a 16.7% charge left on it. Is this an excessive lost of battery over an 11 day period? My laptop was left shut down (it was not in sleep or hibernate mode). I would think the drain on the battery would be minimal.
Is my battery defective or is this normal? I've had the laptop for about 2 months.
my computer produces this crackling noise and everything begins to slow down. it doesnt happens everytime but most of the time. like when im watching a video, the crackling noise would come and the video would slow down and the sound would go into a low slow motion sound ..
When I plug power, battery indicator bulb indicating and when i press turn on button on laptop, suddenly battery indicator bulb turned off and laptop wont start. then i removed battery and install it again. then again battery indicator bulb indicating. this sequence happening again and again. what could be the reason.....
I was using the laptop normally in the morning and shut it down. When I turned on the machine at night, it started till the login screen and it just shutdown suddenly. When I tried to turn it on,there is no sign of life,no led lights,no power button light. Nothing
We have a new (1month old) XPS13, which will not boot up. It was being used to watch a video online, and then when that had finished, the lid was closed. When we came to turn it on again, there is no response.
The laptop is plugged in, with a light on the power pack. Holding the power button down doesn't illicit a response. I have seen some mention online of booting up into diagnostic money keeping the function key down and pressing the power button, but still no response.
There seems to be no way of telling whether there is any charge in the battery, so difficult to tell what is causing the issue.
I have a G500 laptop. When it boots up, I would like the Num Lock to automatically be turned on. I can't see anything in the BIOS that would do that. Any other places I should be looking? Any other way to keep it turned on?
Seeing as I pretty much made up my mind and want to buy a Acer Aspire 8930G, I hope somebody here can give me some specific advice. Maybe someone who owns one of the laptops (I hope there aren't any differences, depending on the country you live in)
I am looking at the Acer Aspire 8930G-644G32MN or the ACER Aspire 8930G-584G32BN. The first one is 300 Euro's cheaper than the last one. Besides that big difference I can't seem to find any. Did I miss some specific diffence, like do they both have Surround Sound and a BluRay drive and a full HD screen? Does any of the two support DVB-T? Do they both have a 9600 GT graphics card?
The reason why I ask is because I looked through, I don't know how many internetsites with specs and it's amazing how they all differ, obviously mainly copied and pasted from other internetsites. And I really want to get the right one and not regret my purchase after a while.
I recently bought a Lenovo z50-70 laptop with Broadcom Wireless Adapters. Its a Windows 7-32 bit system. Wireless LAN worked fine for a few hours, but after a restart it started saying Wireless Capability is turned off. i have tried following:
1. looked for a hardware wireless switch. there is none. 2. reinstalled WLAN drivers from lenovo site without success. 3.restarted WLAN Autoconfig service for no avail.
I turned on my computer today and the Resuming Windows notice came up followed by Dell logo which I clicked on and the screen went blank. Have tried obvious things like disconnecting from mains power and switching back on with no joy.
I received a new Inspiron 15 7000 yesterday, and am experiencing the following issue:
Approximately every other time I try to either a) Turn On the laptop or b) Resume from sleep - the laptop freezes.
This is often accompanied by the backlit keyboard being lit and staying on. Nothing else happens. No screen etc. or other response. The only way to get the laptop to work is to hold down the power button to kill the machine, and try again. This usually works and the system starts in a seconds.
I have a dell inspiron N5110 laptop.It switches off randomly when i say switches off it doesn't go to the shutdown mode it just switches off. I have run the diagnostics and everything is fine BIOS is completely up to date and there are no heating issues it sometimes switches off right after i switch it on. My warranty has expired .
I just purchased a new probook 4540s core i5 with win7 x64 system.
Firstly, When battery full charged then turned laptop off for a few hours or next day it becomes 99% or 98% although its plugged in Ac power. Shutdown again for 1 hour and turn on it turns to 97%. Is that ok or there is problem in battery specially it shows that ( Plugged in, Not chareged ) so laptop should operate at AC adapter and battery remain 100%. Secondly, I have an unknown device can't find it as shown in figure below.
I have HP Pavilion g6-2288sx Notebook PC. It has core i3 processor with 4gb ram.
My problem is that my laptop suddenly powers off while running, not hibernating - total shutdown without any error or warning or anything. It just goes blank and dont turn on again until i connect it with its charger. Low battery is not the problem cause it doesnt give low battery error even battery sign shows that i have enough battery to work about next 30 mins.
My laptop is Dell N5110 (Inspiron 15R), it suddenly shutdown when I try to type on the keyboard. Then I tried more and more to open it again, but it didn't work. After a while, I opened it, and when I tried to write something again, it suddenly shutdown, and so on.
i got my new dv5 last night and ive got a problem. The first time it happened was when i tried to make one of those back up DVD's, i open the disc recovery manager, and the computer suddenly logs off, and im reverted back to the welcome screen where i need to click my name to log back in. Every program that was running simply dissapears. I was like 'crap... i guess i cant make any back up discs'. But then it happened again when i tried to install WinRAR, it was corrupted becuase i copied the files from another computer and after i press ok in the error box it does the same thing.. 3 times i had to re-download a file i was downloading at that time. I guess it only happens when theres an error. I immediatly uninstalled norton and most of the bloatware so it cant be due to that. So now im paranoid about opening any file hoping that it wouldnt log off like that suddenly and lose my work.
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 ?
My laptop wont boot. Here is what is on th screen:
Broardcom UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082) v2.0.6 Copyright (C) 2000-2004 Broadcom Corporation Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation All rights reserved PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

I have tried changing the boot priority order so that the Network card boots last. Sadly, this had no effect. I disabled network boot and the laptop then showed 'Operating System not found' without the 'PXE' error messeges. Setting defaults also does not work.
