Acer :: Aspire 4520 Not Starting Properly

Nov 22, 2008

I have an Aspire 4520 laptop with Visa SP1 which will only start after the second attempt. The first try, it will get to where the little green lines run across then they stop halfway. I have to power off and start it again. It usually (but not always) takes me to a screen asking me to either Repair or Start windows normally. If I choose to repair, it does it's thing then says that the repair was unsuccessful so I've been choosing to 'Start windows normally' and its starts up ok.

Acer :: Aspire 4520 Dead BIOS Update Failure

Sep 1, 2008

Im using Acer Aspire 4520. Now my laptop have dead because im update the BIOS firmware on windows vista platform. On 8% progress its 'hang' now i'm can using my laptop.

the many solution i have try on this forum. not done.

FYI on my procedure

1- Run the Phoenix Crisis Disk -> Format the floppy procedure.
2- Open the Acer BIOS from website -> I get the Z03_3626.wph file then rename to bios.wph
3- Copy the bios.wph to Floppy drive
4- Insert the USB floppy to my laptop then remove the battery, hold the FN + ESC button, plug in power then press power button
5- I hear the floppy drive reading on 3minutes then after 3minutes the floopy drive stop and i release the holding FN + ESC button
6- waiting about 20 minutes nothing happen.

so what i want to do...? i think this is right procedure because it reading the floopy drive long about 3minutes. If i try burn the CD procedure nothing happen (can read), then try rename to .fd it not read.

Acer :: 4520, Upgrade 4GB Of RAM

Feb 17, 2009

I dont know why my laptop was lost 800MB of RAM, after I upgraded 4GB (2x2GB). Both, Windows XP and BIOS, have recognized 3262KB of RAM. After that I attempted to check with each of RAM, Windows XP and BIOS recognised 2GB. The problem is both RAM equipped at the same time.

I tried to update AMD processor but I found that the software,ver 1.3.2, is older than the current BIOS, 1.36. So it didnot affect.

What happen to my laptop?

ACER 4520: AMD Turino 64x2 Mobile Technology TL-58, 2x1.9GHZ
RAM Currently: 4GB (2x2GB)
NVIDIA Geforce 7000M
HDD 160GB

Acer :: Aspire One Making Some CRAZY Sounds When Starting Up

Feb 23, 2009

When I start-up or resume from sleep my AAO often makes an extremely loud noise like the fan is trying to run but is having trouble. It almost sounds like it is revving up. It will do it two or three times then stop. It usually doesn't do it during normal use--only when I'm trying to start-up or resume.

Acer Aspire 5742 :: Screen Goes Blank After Starting Up

Got an acer 5742 running windows 7. All of a sudden the display has stopped working.

It boots fine and the display works up to the point of "starting windows". I see the windows logo for a bit then it goes off.

If I plug into an external display it works fine. In graphics properties, the display isnt even listed (only the external display shows up).

Acer :: 4520 Dvd Writer Not Detected

Dec 1, 2008

I am using acer aspire 4520 for past one year.

But, for the last 2/3 months, I was facing a problem that dvd writer was sometimes detected in BIOS & sometimes not.

And finally, from the last week, the BIOS is not at all detecting the "MATSUSHITA DVD WRITER"

Its quite strange, as the orange led on dvd writer blinks like before & it write pops out when I press eject button too.

Have you guys also faced similar problem with this matsushita dvd writer?

Maybe some BIOS update is needed.

My Acer Aspire V3 laptop (with Windows 8) stopped working and I tried to reset it but it fails after around 50% operation. I tried both reset and refresh options both not working.

I tried to press F2 key on the start to get the bios screen but it is not showing and showing the Automatic repair screen with Advanced options.

Acer Aspire E1-572G :: Can't Boot Past Starting Logo

Feb 25, 2015

I have a new E1-572G laptop. Long story short, I installed Win 7 on it, and after that, Ubuntu 14.10. I had issues with bootloader, but after fiddling around with legacy/UEFI booting, secure boot, and things like that, I almost successfully configured the laptop. When I selected the ubuntu uefi bootmgr in the bios, in secure boot mode, I rebooted the laptop for what I thought the last time, but then it did not go past the Acer logo. Only combination that works is ctrl+alt+delete. If I remove the hdd, then the acer logo flashes for half a second, and a black screen appears, with a static console cursor at the left upper corner.
 
I searched a lot in the topic, wanted to reset the bios, but there is no jumper for this, nor can I remove the bios battery. I wanted to reflash the bios, but I could not find proper instructions on this.

Sep 16, 2014

Until recently my Aspire M3802 desktop started immediately when the start button was pressed. For about a week it's been taking an increasing number of minutes before the the LED turns blue; today it was over ten. What is the likely problem? If accumulated dust how can I remove it? If not dust, what can I do?

Acer :: Aspire 9500 (audio) Sound Did Not Work Properly

Jun 5, 2009

I have a problem with the audio. I reinstal the O.S. because my laptop was working slow, and because the sound did not work properly. Everything affter instalation works fine, just the audio doen't work properly, it sounds...hesitating

I thought the problem was the cpu temperatures... 60-65 idle, and just open a few windows it reachs at 75-80, and stay in this temps.

Notebook Hardware Control, lets make undervolting. So I make some test... and just when the cpu loads at 100% the audio works properly, clean and perfect. If cpu loads under 80% the audio sounds... but defective, not clean...

Acer Aspire 5-581T :: Audio Drivers Not Properly Downloading

Sep 4, 2014

I've been working on this issue on my own for about a week now. I'm not entirely sure how to start explaining, so I'll just do a rundown of the noticable issues.
 
Hovering over the speaker icon gives me the text, "No speakers or headphones are plugged in." I use the internal speakers, and I always have my headphones plugged in. Audio playback troubleshooting doesnt give me anything (though at one point during my progress, it said that my audio device was disabled.) 
 
Device management has been confusing at best. I can't seem to get the Realtek W8.1 drivers to properly download, even after finding the Acer-support driver.

Acer Aspire E5-572G-5577 :: Cannot Properly Work - NVidia 840M 2GB Dedicated VRAM

Nov 17, 2014

I recently bought Acer aspire E15 model E5-572G-5577 which came with i5-4210m (2.6 to 3.2Ghz),8GB RAM,Nvidia GeForce 840M 2GB dedicated VRAM,1TB HDD and freeDOS. Since i recieved Win8.1 x64 for my Birthday i bought this laptop without windows and installed 8.1, as Acer claims that fully supports this OS.

Everything was ok in installation and i even installed HD4600 driver but when installed Nvidia driver although it looked ok and it was shown in device manager the graphic card wasn't show in my display (only HDGraphics) and in nvidia control panel i had only the 3D settings option but still it seems that 840M hasn't kicked in.

I assume its the driver so after many attempt with different drivers i still have the same issue. The laptop is brand new and in OEM 8.1 it seems to work but not for all of us that have a bought copy of Windows. I have wasted so much money on a Acer with 840M GPU that wont work.

Acer :: 5290G White Screen While Starting

Feb 23, 2010

my 5290g broke yesterday morning. after switching on, checking my emails and viewing some forums I decided to give old Silent Hunter 4 a go and then IT happened. Screen went pitch black, I could hear game's background music for few seconds and then all froze. After reset instead of ACER start screen I got white screen with some vertical stripes. I can hear HDD working, after a while I can see colours of my logging screen but everything is still a mess: after putting my password in screen is divided to 2 parts - one with my wallpaper colours and one black with single dots of different colours.

First suspicion was of course graphic card, but after opening the laptop I couldn't smell anything. So maybe it's LCD screen itself. I'm trying to borrow LCD monitor and check if the video-out socket is working to eliminate the graphic card.

My question is:

1. Did anybody had same experience with 5290g?

2. Can you recommend any decent online shop selling MMX graphic cards or LCD screens - UK only pls.

3. Any tips to improve cooling in this type of Acer?

Acer Extensa 5630z :: Does Not Recognize Memory That Came With It Properly

Nov 10, 2014

I have an Acer Extena 5630z that came with 4 GB memory (2 times 2 GB modules) from the factory. However, the BIOS reports only 3 GB in any OS I try be it 64 or 32 bit. Why is this? The BIOS is version 1.19 and there are newer ones. Should I consider an update? Is this a memory remappin issue
 
This processor and chipset should support 36 bit address space in a 32 bit OS even.

Sony :: 's I5 CW Is Starting To Me Off

IT IS BROKEN! Disc drive is non operational, and on top of that, the 'black' of the screen is about the color of my light grey/silver pants.

Best Buy is sending me a new one next day (so it will be here wednesday). This is Sony's last chance, and they will be getting a written complaint about quality control.
