Acer :: Aspire 3050-1150 - Intermittent Start

Apr 29, 2009

I recently upgraded the CPU in my Acer Aspire 3050-1150 to a Turion XL-56. The first bootup was a breeze, and Windows Vista Home Basic recognized the new chip no problem. Temps ended up being cooler than before the upgrade.

Later that day, comp just shut down. I tried to reboot...comp started but shut off a second or two into loading windows. Next boot attempt the on/off switch wouldn't work at all...appeared dead. I waited a few minutes, took out the AC adapter and windows booted. Next time at bootup, similar pattern, but wouldnt boot even with the AC adapter taken out. This time it booted with the battery out and AC in.

Similar pattern at every bootup...false starts, shuts down at various points, but then eventually boots up after several attempts. I have just been leaving it on, in sleep mode when not in use. I am very afraid of doing a windows update which requires a reboot, so I haven't been doing that.

Acer :: Aspire 3050-1905

Nov 30, 2008

my Aspire 3050-1905 had an terrible hijacker virus. I finally got it removed using malware bytes. Long story short, I decided to replace my hard drive and upgrade the memory. I re-installed my drivers and such using my orignal backup disc. Well everything worked fine until I turned off my computer and restarted the very next day, my touch pad and keyboard isn't responding. If I plug in external keyboard and mouse not problem, or if I start up in safe mode I can use my keyboard and touch pad with no problem.

Acer :: Aspire 3050-1905 Battery Charge

Aug 13, 2008

I've had my Acer Aspire 3050-1905 for about 8-9 months. For the most part I've always left the a/c plugged in. Well a few days ago I decided to drain the battery and when I charged the battery it won't go past 4% charged. It works fine with the battery out
and ac plugged in. But when I try to charge the battery it won't go past 4%. I used NHC and the wear level is at 0%.

Acer :: Aspire 9410 Black Screen Problems Intermittent

Jun 26, 2009

Aspire 9410 no operating issues but sometimes when booted only black screen Whenever this happens, I connect an exterior monitor and then the screen on my comp pops back on and will stay on even after I disconnect the exterior. It doesn't do this all the time and will flicker (rarely) when in use but never goes completely out when in use. Anyone know why this is and how I can get rid of this problem permanently (outside of getting another computer!)

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Will Not Start Or Then Will Not Shut Off

Oct 10, 2009

My Acer Aspire 7520 Gemstone Vista,

Will not start but I can hear the fan start then stop after a couple of secs, also the power and hdd leds flash on for 4 secs and then off for 4 secs and keep looping.

But then if I press the on/off button to turn the machine off it will not turn off, even holding the button for 4 secs or more. The only way to turn it off is by disconnecting the battery.

Nothing is connected and nothing appears on the screen.

Acer Aspire R7-572 :: Doesn't Start On Battery

Oct 13, 2014

I just bought a brand new Acer R7-572-6805. When I press power button nothing happens if AC adapter is not plugged in. I would expect laptop to start/boot because the battery inside is brand new and fully charged.
 
Also, I'm worried that nothing happens when I press for 4-10 seconds a battery-reset button  on the bottom of the laptop in a small hole in the middle (I use paperclip).
 
1. Update BIOS to the newest version 2.04. Note: during flashing new BIOS version the orange LED didn't blink but shined!
2. Tightened all screws on a casing.
3. Replaced a charger.
4. Pressed batter-reset button.
5. Pressed power button for more than 10 seconds while AC adapter was plugged in, was not plugged in and when battery was not plugged in too.
4. Reinserted battery many times.
5. Checked voltage of a battery. Two cells showed 3.11V and the other two cells showed 3.81V. I manually charged the first 2 to 3.78 so that all 4 cells have similar voltage. The proper voltage makes me think that the battery is fully charged.
 
Other observations:
1. When AC adapter is plugged in then the orange LED is blinking (it seems to indicate that the battery is low) after approximately 6 seconds from pressing power button, i.e. from start. It doesn't change if I go to BIOS or go on with Windows boot.
2. When battery detached then the orange LED does not shine at all.
3. When AC adapter is plugged in then laptop starts.
4. Windows 8.1 is installed. The first time I used the laptop I plugged AC adapter in, powered on the laptop and went on with the installation.
5. Wall AC outlet provide 230V in my country (in contrast to 110V in US, but it shouldn't matter becuase the charger is capable of working in both systems according to its specification).

Acer Aspire E1-571G :: ERecovery Does Not Start Up After Alt+F10

Dec 29, 2014

My boyfriends computer has "crashed" after he tried some "optimizing" last night.
 
When at the login page, it freezes before it is possible to write the password so access to the computer is not possible. 
 
Has checked F2 at boot and D2D is set to be enabled.
 
When I click Alt+F10 at boot up, it says "wait a minute" where after it loads the windows 8 layout, not the erecovery tool as shown in the video by acer.
 
How can I check in the bios whether the recovery partition is corrupt or what else to do? 
 
No recovery disks has been made.
 
It is an Aspire E1-571G laptop.

Acer Aspire V5-573 :: Does Not Start Or Sometimes Starts For 2 Seconds

Mar 9, 2015

I have a problem with my Acer V5-573, 6 months old.
 
Some days ago it did not start when pressing the start button. I removed the charger and tried again, still nothing. Then i removed the backside to get access to the battery. I removed the battery and tried connecting just the charger.
 
That causes the laptop to start for 2 seconds like normally, the fans start for like 1 second and then just shuts down and the start button wont work again. This happens every time I connect the charger and it's off battery.
 
Sometimes when I press the start button and works and starts like it should and then at a random time it shuts down once again. Mostly it just doesnt react to the start button.
 
I haven't replaced or modified the original hardware.

Acer Aspire M5-481PT :: Will Not Start Up Normally Or Shut Down

Nov 5, 2014

About three months ago I was using my laptop and it was working fine and I closed it and set it aside, not plugged in.  My power settings were that nothing happened other than the screen turns off when I close the lid.  Well the next day I went to use my laptop and i opened it and hit the power button but it was dead, so I plugged it in and pressed the power button and still nothing happened.  The only way I can turn the laptop on is to use the small battery reset button on the back of the computer.  Once it turns on it starts up no problem, nothing out of the ordinary.  When I use it and try to shut it down regardless of whether I press the power button or go to the power button on the menu to shut it down it goes through the shutdown and the monitor shuts off for about 3 seconds and then the computer turns back on. 
 
I have done everything I can think of to get the computer to work.  I have reinstalled windows 8.1 from a disk after completely restoring my laptop.  I opened the computer up and disconnected the battery for a few minutes, I tried to start the laptop in safe mode, I reinstalled the BIOS, I have run all the troubleshooting and run windows update to make sure everything is up to date.

Acer :: Aspire 6935G Bluetooth Does Not Start Automatically

Jan 16, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 6935G with Windows Vista Home Premium

The problem is that bluetooth does not start automatically after a cold start or restart.

I have too push BT button every time to activate bluetooth on my computer.

According to Acer, I should be able to set BT by the the Empowering Technology software that BT should start automatically.

But there is no setting for this? How can we solve this?

Is there perhaps any other solution? Perhaps in Windows Vista or driver?
