Acer :: Aspire 5050 Wireless (Atheros AE5007EG)

Feb 11, 2008

I got my Acer Aspire 5050 by September 2007 and filled it with many applications already until I found that its performance was depressing. Then I decided to format my computer and re-install the Windows.

After re-install everything, I just found out that I got a separated CD for the wireless adapter (Atheros AR5007EG + Realtek Ethernet) from the reseller. But I already installed the driver from the original Acer CD.

But it appears that the wireless doesn't work properly as the figures for Received/ Sent packet data are very extreme (this morning I tried and they were 126/ 6) <=- is this a problem? It also got timed out when I tried to connect to my home server, which is located just a staircase away, from my room.

When I go online downstairs, putting my laptop 2 metres from the router, the connection is going just fine.

I tred to install the driver from the separated CD and even searched for the newest update of the device on the internet, but both didn't really help. I got good connection only after I installed the drivers. But after I turned off the laptop for several hours, it couldn't connect to the internet just as before.

Acer :: Upgrading My Aspire 5050

Apr 29, 2009

I've just bought 4gb (2x2gb) of RAM from Crucial, but I'm sure that's not nearly enough, so I come to you, notebook gurus.

First things first, my battery is getting old and beginning to fail. I used to max it out on a full charge at 2 hours, but now it's down to about 45 minutes from a full charge using every battery-saving technique I can (while still keeping wireless access available). I think a new battery is in order, but I want to know if I'm stuck with generic replacement batteries, or if any of you can direct me to a nice longer-life one, like a compatible 9-cell? I like to move around my house and library a lot, so battery life is most important.

Secondly, CPU. My model is stuck with a MK-36 2.0ghz CPU (90nm). Now I know this uses the S1 socket that a lot of dual core CPU's use, so I was wondering if it would just be a simple case of updating the BIOS, then switching out for a TL-64 CPU (Also 90nm) or similar.
Is this at all possible, I'm wondering? Or am I stuck with a single-core? I've looked at this thread (linked from these forums), but that looks to be going from a dual core already.

Thirdly and lastly, I was looking at this thread linked from here (can't re-find it though) talking about upgrading the GPU, also talking about MXM. My current GPU is an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. Is the Aspire 5050's GPU upgradeable at all? I have built all my computers in the past, but I admit I have never tinkered with a notebook before (despite having the necessary tools). Is it possible that I'd be able to shove a better GPU in there?

If there's anything I'm leaving out that you can think might be worth upgrading I'm all ears. My aim is to have the fastest Aspire 5050 I can.

Acer :: Aspire 5050 Fan Constant On And Off

Jan 22, 2009

I recently got a Aspire 5050-3371. I put XP Pro on it and loaded all the drivers.

Notebook runs well. I mainly use it to get online. The fan is constantly going on and off. The core idle temp is usually about 50 C. Fan kicks on about 53 C. I installed rightmark cpu clock and even limiting the cpu to 800mhz and lowering the voltage to just above what makes computer unstable has little effect. Speedfan does not see my fan.

I've opened it up and blown it out. It has an AMD Turion 64 2.0 ghz. The fan is getting very annoying.

Acer :: Aspire 5050 High CPU Load

Jul 8, 2008

I'm having some problems with my Acer Aspire 5050 AMD Turion 64 2.0 GHz running Windows Vista Home Basic

After using it for a little over a year it suddenly has a CPU load around 75 - 90%, and the mouse is not reacting very well. Besides that, it's almost impossible to use to keyboard. Thinking it might be some sort of virus, I checked for that. I found nothing.

I tried to do a erecovery of the machine, but it didn't help! Now i tried formatting the partition and installed XP instead. But still: it didn't help. the problems is still there.

I found that if i start in fail safe mode, the notebook's working. both mouse , keyboard and cpu load.

I am really baffled about about what's the cause of all my problems. I'm thinking it might be the BIOS that's f***** up, but i'm not shure about it.

Acer :: Aspire 5050-3785 Upgrade

Nov 4, 2009

I have an old acer aspire 5050-3785 With a turion processor @2.2ghz with 1.5GB DDR2 SDRAM, a ATI radeon Mobility x1100 GPU (integrated) and an 80GB Hard Drive.

I would like to know if i could upgrade the processor to and AMD athlon X2 or something better than the 1 core turion that i have. I know that the ram is simply Plug and Play because I replaced one of the original 512MB RAM chips with a 1.0GB ram Chip. But I am wondering if i could change out the CPU so that when i fix it completely (the charging dongle burnt out) I could buy a CPU to replace it because the Processor just ran way too hot.

I have a acer aspire 5050 laptop/notebook and everytime I try to watch a video on youtube or just search the internet, it's slow and the words "low disk space" pops up. I click the button that is suppose to clean the files but when it's done the words "low disk space" pops up again. Can you help me with this problem?

I've opened the my computer and I see Acer (C) It has 0% free space. Underneath acer (C) it says 8.35 MB free of 33.5 GB. I also see Data (D) underneath data d I see 33.1 GB free of 33.2 GB. The last thing I see is something that says unspecified, and underneath it it says DVD RW Drive (E). I don't know what to do next.

Acer :: Opening An Aspire 5050 Replace Trackpad

Jan 21, 2008

how to open up a Acer Aspire 5050. My right mouse button is constantly being pushed down, i've disabled it through the drivers but i would like the laptop to be fully functional. I was wondering why this could be happening.

I'm looking for a guide so i can investigate! Do you think it would be easy to repair? Or would i just need to replace the board underneath the buttons? The left click and the scroll buttons did work properly before this happened. Now only the left click works.

Acer :: Aspire 5050 Loosing HDD And DVD Drive In XP & Crash

Jan 15, 2009

My 5050 crashes XP every few minutes, maybe half hour sometimes with an 0x07 blue screen.

I have temporarily taken to booting ubuntu (llinux OS) off a USB pen drive and it works fine, however, i might well see the HDD and DVD drive in Ubuntu but its not long before they dissapear from the visibilty of the OS. Of course this would be a crash in XP but not under these circumstances.

I can hear that the hdd is running and the cd drive will open so its not a power issue or temps.

I think the mobo ide controller is falling over or connections associated with it.

I cannot identify the ide controller (if it is a seperate component to the mobo itself) or investigate problem further without some knowledge & ideas from experianced members here.

Even trying to take this notebook apart seemed difficult & I gave up after a few screws were out. Anyone got a strip down guide/service manual and more importantly some ideas on my fault.

At first I was thinking of maybe a dry joint on the HDD connection but that was before I ran Linux OS and discovered I was actually losing visibility of both IDE hardwares. Not just the HDD, and not losing power either.

Dell :: Atheros Vs Broadcom Wireless

Apr 29, 2009

I'm just wondering if anyone knows if there's a big difference between these 2 cards..

I'm looking to replace my current Atheros based one (Dell 1515) with a Broadcom based one (Dell 1510). Both are advertised as B/G/N cards..

Also, when replacing wireless cards the aerials need to be soldered onto the card itself, correct?

My laptop has been very happily connecting wirelessly for many years and all of a sudden in the last 2 days it is refusing to connect wirelessly saying there are no wireless networks. the wireless button is turned on and all other devices in the house connect. I have tried wired via an ethernet cable and all is fine. I have tried updating the driver and backing out to the previously installed driver and neither resolves the issue.

Acer :: Upgrading An 5050-5954

Dec 15, 2007

The first thing to upgrade would be the RAM . The 5050 comes with 1 GB upgradeable to 4 GB. I want to add a GB so it would be 2 GB.

So doI a 1 gb chip and add it in or I have to get two 1 gb chips.

Do i get 553 mhz or 667mhz I have read It doesn't make much difference due to cas latency ( whatever that means )5 for 667 and 4 for 553.

And where is a good place to purchase the chip and what maker is the best?

I have seen videos on how to do this and feel confident I can do it mysef.

Bare with me guys I have a few more question on the hard drive, a flash card and expansion slot.

Acer :: 5315 W/ Atheros Wifi

Jan 2, 2009

I've got an Acer Aspire 5315 which is paying up merry hell. We 'backgraded' to WinXP Pro because Vista sucks donkey balls.

According to hardware scans the machine has got an Atheros AR5007EG wifi module (though on the back of the shell it says it'a an Atheros AR5BXB63 which means it's an AR5006 not 5007 - not sure what diff that would make).

The issue is this: if I connect to my home wifi router, the acer stays connected for three minutes (sometimes 3 minutes and 5 seconds), then TCPIP (event 4201) appears in the Event Viewer-> indicating that the device has connected again. It does this twice (three minutes between events), and on the third event throws an event 4202 indicating that the card has disconnected. Wireless light is flickering constantly.

I have scanned for malware, and driver scans tell me that the firmware for the Atheros card is up to date.

Has anybody else had a similar problem? My next adventure will be to remove the wifi module completely and use a USB dongle for wifi access.

I'm going to try a new AR5BXB63 driver that I just downloaded from a third source, but I don't hold out much hope, frankly.

One more thing - when the Acer cuhcks a spazz, it drags down the whole wifi network is I use our 2Wire 2701HGV-W, but doesn't if I use an old SpeedStream 4200 modem and dLink DI524-UP wifi router. How's that for odd?

Acer :: 6920G - Network Card Is An Atheros AR2181

Nov 24, 2008

a problem im having with my Acer 6920G, basically the network card is an Atheros AR2181, and ive been having problems with it since day 1.

Basically the drivers it came with (1.0.0.28) would cause my internet connection to "suffer" limited connectivity every 5 minutes or so which would srop download speeds to around 1 kb/s. I thought i should upgrade drivers to the latest which are the 1.0.0.38/9 drivers, i thought i had fixed the problem as for the first 10 minutes or so it was working fine, and then suddenly my pc froze and the screen went funny with lines running across the whole thing, as if it was an overheating issue.

To solve this i bought a USB network card, which works fine but takes up a USB slot and gives me slow download speed of around 20 - 100 kb/s compared to over 10 Mb/s in some cases with the Atheros.

Acer :: Aspire 5935G: No Wireless

May 21, 2010

I'm in the UK and just received this laptop today as a gift. It was not brand new but quite new. I was warned that maybe the wireless isn't working.

I've run the recovery partition. Win 7 64 bit Home Premium.

The Wireless Networks icon always has a red X. Other wireless devices are working fine.

In Device Manager everything looks correct: Reported to be a
Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card.

However on the Acer drivers page the two WLAN offerings are both Intel

Service & Support

Wireless LAN Intel Wireless LAN Driver (5100/5300/5150/5350) 12.4.1.11 4.8 MB 2009/10/21

OR

Wireless LAN Intel Wireless LAN Driver (CondorPeak) 12.5.0.59 7.1 MB 2009/10/23

I guess the second is correct ?

I played around and at one point the router was detected but no connection after trying the password.

I rebooted ... now Dell again and I can't remember/ reproduce the steps that helped. Red X. Everything else appears to work.

Do I need a new WLAN card ? Different drivers ?

Would I need to buy a PCI express wireless card thingy ?

Acer :: Wireless On Aspire 6530

Aug 19, 2009

got the laptop and everything works great except the wireless. It connects to wireless fine, but if it goes into standby mode (like when you shut the cover or leave it for a wile), I am not able to get the wireless mode to come on. I press the easy launch button that enables and disables the wireless. After pressing the button, it says wireless enabled or disabled, but nothing happens, the orange light does not come on, and it doesn't even try to connect. When I manually serach for networks, it doesn't see any.

It's like the wireless function is still disabled. I have no problem connecting if I reboot and no problems with other laptops connecting.

I have recently purchased a Acer Aspire 5633 laptop from Comet, as it was 399 for a fairly decent spec with inbuilt wireless.

But i can't get it to connect to my router what so ever.

I am using a Belkin Wireless G Router F5D7230-4.

I have tried changing the security level from WPA PSK to WPA2 PSK and have tried WEP 64 bit too. But it won't connect at all.

Acer :: Wireless On Aspire 1410

Nov 1, 2009

I recently purchased an aspire 1410 and have found the wireless card to be extremely unstable. Unless I am standing within 3 ft. of the modem/router, I lose the signal.

Not what you imagine when you purchase a netbook to use around the house. And I have had another notebook that picked up the signal flawlessly, so this is either the wireless card in this machine or a driver issue.
