Acer :: Aspire 3683 Wont Turn On At All

Oct 16, 2008

The laptop was working fine last night. Today I turn it on but nothing happens. Ive tried turning it on with the AC and no battery and also with the battery by itself but no lights turn on - not even the charging battery light. The adapter is correctly plugged in. The battery was full last night, so you'd think that it would turn on when running the battery by itself.

Its about 1.5 years old so its out of warranty.

Ive tried holding the power button for 30 seconds and then waiting ~5 mintues and plugged the battery back in and nothing. I also did it again but tried with the adapter and still no luck.

What can I do to revive it?

Acer :: My Aspire One Won't Turn Off!

Jul 31, 2009

I'm having a problem with my Acer Aspire One A150.

The system won't shut down, and just restarts if I try and turn it off.

I have to pull the battery out if I want it to turn off.

When I plug the battery in, it turns on straight away without me having to press the power button.

Also the system won't work off the Mains Power only (with battery removed).

If I plug just the power lead in, the power light flickers and the system keeps clicking until I unplug it again.

The system works with the power lead only if the battery is plugged in as well.

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Wont Turn On

Apr 12, 2010

Update:
Just wrapped the notebook inside a blanket and overheated it, then let it cool down.
Now it works.
All i have to do now is to remove the Nvidia gpu stuff left behind and it should be ready for use again.

Edit:
My problem is exacly the same as the one described in this thread:
Aspire 7520 - will not start or then will not shut off
But i could not find any fix.

My stepdads Acer Aspire 7520G wont turn on anymore.
The wierd thing is that it was working yesterday.
Now it just keep rebooting like seen in this YouTube clip.
[url]

Its out of warranty so i was hoping i could try fixing it myself.
With the help of the community here of course.

I been randomly searching Google for help and what i have found out is that this is a common problem, but i have yet to find any fixes other than the suggestion to remove the motherboard and reheat it inside an oven..................

Acer :: Extensa 5220 Won't Turn On

May 24, 2009

I have an Acer extensa 5220 laptop, which suddenly decided this morning that it wont turn on any more! It was working perfectly fine, has good anti-virus, etc., and worked fine an hour before but now when it's turned on, the power button goes green and nothing else happens. It's not been dropped or banged, was not plugged into the mains at the time (but can that rule out a surge the last time it was plugged in?)There is not even a flicker on the screen, the fan doesn't come on, but I think the hard-drive hums. Does anyone have any idea what's wrong with it?

Acer :: 6530G Won't Turn On With Or Without Battery

May 21, 2010

I was listening to some music yesterday night, then suddenly my laptop decided to shut down. No problem I thought, becaus it happened 2 times before in which I only had to start the laptop. This time however, the laptop does not want to turn on.

I tried turning it on with the battery, and without the battery(with the adapter plugged in). Nothing helps.

Also I have noticed that the light bulb on the adapter blok blinks if it is plugged into the laptop, but just normally doesnt blink when i pull the adapter out of the laptop(with or without battery).

Acer :: How Can I Turn Off BIOS Password

Dec 25, 2009

I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 through a clean install. Now I must have enable something I didn't want to because now it asks to put a password in before it boots. I know the password, that's not the problem.

The problem is I'd rather not have it ask me, and there's always a danger of it locking up on me if it gets input incorrectly.

So my question is, how do I turn it off? I did a clean install so I don't have most of the crap Acer throw in, including eManagement Settings, which I heard may have the solution to my problem. I only have the Acer Bio Protection, the fingerprint reader, and I tried turning it off there, but to no avail.

Acer :: 5315 - Slow Freeze And Turn Off

Nov 9, 2008

When ever i used my Acer 5315 for about 5 mins of switching on it would become very slow freze and turn off.

So i did not no what to do. I was told to restore it to factory setings. So i used the big green E button at the top right to get that green toolbar thing up. Went on recovery i think, restore and set to factory setings. I think it then turned itself off and when i turned it on it went on to e recovery. But a bit into i went to put my laptop down and the battery fel out lol. And now when i turn it on all you get is the acer page then a black screen with a white flashing line at the top left.

Acer :: Extensa 5620-4801 Does Not Turn On (tries, Then Fails)

Dec 26, 2008

I downloaded a 800+ MB game today and was playing it even though it said my graphics card didn't match and stuff... I got a couple runtime errors and the game got shut down, but later I started ignoring the messages when I figured out that way, I can keep playing. Then I "accidentally" responded to the error message and when the game got shut down the computer stopped responding at all. I force-shut down the computer by holding down the power button. Then, after that when I try to turn on the computer the fan starts turning and green light comes up... for about 3 seconds. Then it takes a .1 sec-long break and tries again for another 3 seconds, then gives in completely. It does this when it has power, so I don't think it's the battery. It won't even show the Acer screen at the very beginning. It's a Vista, no recovery CD (do you ever get recovery CD's for Vista?). Any chance we get our notebook alive and kicking again?

Acer :: Extensa 5420-5038 Wireless Dont Turn On

Nov 6, 2008

I bought an Acer Extensa 5420-5038 today, it cames with Vista Home 32 bits english version. As I am a brazilian, i formated it and instaled Vista Ultimate 64 bits Portugues version. The problem is, after the instalation, the wireless dont work anymore.

The light that usually flickes over it doesl not turn on, and it appears as an unknown network device on my hardware manager.

I've tried Atheros and Broadcom drivers from acer site but they didnt work and it told me the driver won't be installed because the appropriate card isn't installed....

In other words, it's telling me I dn't have an Atheros/Broadcom wireless card, but with the original instalatio of Vista it WAS working perfectly.

when I hit the power button, the fans kick on and a couple lights turn on, but nothing happens- the screen remains blank. I don't even see the acer splash screen like usual. Also, I'm pretty sure that the hard drive isn't spinning as well.

I know the lcd isn't dead as I tried hooking it up to an external monitor, but that didn't work.

Acer :: The Aspire Or The Aspire Timeline

Jan 13, 2010

I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.

The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?

Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:

Aspire A5538-1096
[url]

Aspire Timeline 5810-4784
[url]

My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?

Acer :: Aspire 8930G-644G32MN Or The Aspire 8930G-584G32BN

Mar 26, 2009

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.

Acer :: HDD - With Aspire 5315

Nov 26, 2008

I got a problem with my Acer Aspire 5315. The HDD is shown in the bios but won't show in Vista most of the time. The HDD is completely formated, including the Acer partition. So recovery is not an option.

The problem is strange because it is not consistent. Sometimes I am able to acces the drive and install Vista. But then the next day,when i try to boot again, i only see a cursor after the Acer boot screen.

I've tried running in IDE mode. I also tried replacing the HDD with a new one. I installed vista with the correct Intel driver.

I also tried running Linux live cd. It also sees the HDD drive correctly but when i try to acces it, the program freeses.

I'm affraid something is wrong with the I/O controller, or it is a loose cable.
If you think otherwise, please let me know. If not, i'd like to know how I can check the HDD cable.

Acer :: Aspire Not Recognizing Ram

Oct 20, 2008

ive got a slight problem with my laptop. 2-3 months ago i added an addition gig of ram to my acer aspire 3050 for a total of 1.5gbs. it was the correct type of ram(i made sure it was the same as what was already in there). for some reason the computer will recognize that the ram has been placed in the slot but it does use it at all. when i am running programs will it will still draw what's needed from the hard drive even though peak usage rarely surpassed 700mb of ram. was there something i was supposed to activate/adjust after installing the ram?

and another disconcerting thing is that since i installed the ram the fan is on fullblast 100% of the time and the machine heats up almost to the point of overheating really fast even when doing basic things like surfing the web

Acer :: RAM On Aspire 5601

May 8, 2009

I recently purchased additional RAM to upgrade my Acer Aspire 5601. According to Acer website, crucial.com and other places I searched, my model can be upgraded to 4GB of RAM (2 per slot). Inserted the new RAM and booted up and it just hung at the splash screen. The RAM I purchased was PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) and I had understood that my system would still accept it and make the adjustment accordingly. I tried several different things:

- I removed one RAM chip and system boots up and Windows recognizes 2GB (tried the other chip too so I know both are working)

- Thinking the type of RAM was an issue I took 4GB of DDR2-533 from another laptop and tried with no luck.

Acer :: Aspire 1501LMi

Nov 27, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 1501LMi laptop. I recently purchased 2gb ram for it (2x1gb sticks) through crucial UK, using their tool to help determine the ram that you need.

For some reason, I have been unable to use both sticks together though? It appeared to crash windows on boot up, and thinking there may be some sort of weird configuration with windows which is causing this, I have attempted to reinstall but have found it crashes during the install too. (I am running windows XP Pro with SP3). Strangely though, it DOES work fine if I use either of the 1gb sticks along with a 512mb stick of ram? Plus each Ram stick has been tested individually and found to be functioning correctly!

I have contacted Crucial about this, and they have also replaced both of the sticks of ram. Unfortunately, the same thing continues to happens?

My Acer bios version is 1.06. My Phoenix Bios version is "PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.0", however, going onto Phoenix's website, the newest version is "PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.1". Whilst on the Phoenix website, I noticed that they link to a website offering an update service called eSupport.com. I ran there tool, and it suggested i can get the newer PhoenixBios version for my laptop but you have to pay for it? Acers website only has my current version 1.06 of the acer 1500 bios.

Does anyone have any experience of this problem, or does anyone have any experience of running PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.1 on an Aspire 1501LMi laptop?

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.

Acer :: Aspire USB And Freeze

Mar 22, 2010

The USB ports on my 8735G are messed. Everything with my system is fine until I plug something into the USB. After about 30 seconds, the whole computer freezes without any hope of recovery. Only a hard restart fixes it. This happens with mice, USB drives, UDB keys, anything. I tried disabling the power management on USB (selective suspend) and it doesn't help. I've googled the crap outta this and I've tried all the possible fixes and solutions and suggestions I've found. I know the ports or hub are not defective as they will transfer data in small amounts before freezing. However, it will freeze right away (before 30 seconds) if I attempt to transfer anything bigger than 300 MB.

Acer :: Aspire 8920

Oct 5, 2008

I am fairly certain I will be getting the Acer Aspire 8920 once I can sell my old laptop (14") for a fairly decent price.

But I am struggling of which version of 8920 I should get. Two caught my attention though...

1) Price: $1649: 2.5GHz CPU; 4 GB memory; 320GB; Nvidia 9500M GS

2) Price: $1170: 2.0GHz CPU; 4 GB memory; 320GB; Radeon HD 3650

As far as I am concerned; the two graphic cards are not hugely different in performance. Is that $480 difference solely for CPU worth it?

I am not a huge gamer, but I do play some games occasionally and don't mind being blown away by the photo-realistic graphics in the future.

So the thing is, with the 2.5GHz, I may be able to swap with a much better graphics card and able able to play games with awesome graphic a few years down the road; whereas, with only 2.0GHz CPU, you can't really do much.

So with both modules installed I ran CPU-Z and it tells me that in each slot there is only 1gb in each slot - see screenshot.

Acer :: New Aspire 6930G

Jul 9, 2009

So far I think its a great notebook for the price. I have'nt ran into any serious issues.

1. Sound - When playing music the sound is ok, However with Bluray or DVDs the sound is very low, even on 100% volume level. I tested the Bluray disc that came with it and the DVD to Twister, and in a quiet room its too low to capture all the details of the sound.
Agian music (ie.MP3s) sound fine, but movies are very low. I tried enabling the Dolby Pro IIx but that didn't help.

2. Webcam - How exactly do I turn it on/off. I found the crystal eye software that works with it automatically turning the camera on, but it has no options to do anything with it. No record button or anything.
I read that Windows Movie Maker can be used, but it does not detect the camera at all.

3. Acer Arcade Deluxe. - The album art of the music that I add does show up. I have them embedded in the idtags, They show up in Vista Media Center however.

4. This is probably more of a Vista issue, but I noticed the hard drive is constanly being access most of the time, and I can't figure out why.
I googled and learned about potential culprits like Superfetch, and Search Indexing, Auto defraging, and Malware Scanners. And after disabling all of that the drive still read/writes like crazy when its idle. In Task Manager, I've discover that a file lsass.exe and svchost.exe are the primary culprits, but I don't know if and how I should disable them.

Acer :: Aspire One 110 Recovery

Dec 14, 2009

I have recently got an Acer Aspire One 110 Windows XP Version with 1GB ram for my girlfriend as an xmas present. Anyway while I was setting everything up for her i.e. firefox & msn etc. I spotted in the programs that there was nothing to do with Acer at all i.e. erecovery management, and the only thing was the Acer PDF manual. I then proceeded to look in disk management (right click my computer > manage) and to my shock there was no PQSERVICE or any sort of a recovery partition! The only partition was the main Windows partition! I thought maybe it was because the SSD hard disk is only 8GB. I decided to take a look at the 2 disk that I got supplied as I thought that these were the only possibe way to restore if you had an external disk drive. The 2 disk were labeled System CD & Windows XP Home Edition SP3, The System CD disk was 500MB in size and the Windows one was 2.54GB! That must be the recovery DVD then.

I decided to try and boot into the disks on my other laptop and the SystemCD disk did load up and it loaded the eRecovery program but the option to recovery was greyed out (fair enough as it was a different laptop) I then decided to boot the 2.54GB Windows disk and the laptop would not recognise it at all! I decided to look at the contents of the 2.54GB Windows disk manually through windows and all that it has it about 20 .SWM files and some other files but the only application I could see was a program called "ImageX" I then manually looked at the contents of the SystemCD disk and there was only various folders and files but no clickable applications. I am now a bit confused by these 2 disks, how am I supposed to do a full restore the aspire one now incase anything goes wrong?? Could anyone help me out with how am I supposed to these 2 disk or am I supposed to create another recovery disk using these 2 original disks? Or will these 2 disk boot up fine using an external disk drive with the aspire one?

Geforde 8400m G 256mb.
3 GB RAM.

I used the acer program ePower management and put everything on max performance.

The CPU is at 100% clockspeed. Only when i play a game, the CPU somethings drops till 80%. This causes major lag spikes for 5-8 secondes.

I got a screenshot where you can see the drops.

What causes this problem?? Is it the because my CPU is overheating? (in the picture is quite stable).

I got the latest BIOS version by the acer helpdesk.
