Acer Aspire 5517 :: Won't Go Into Sleep Mode When Audio / Video Is Playing
Sep 20, 2014
I have an Aspire 5517 running Windows 7. When on battery power, the computer will not go to sleep if it is playing any audio or video file through the speakers. Pause the stream and the computer will sleep as normal on power saver options, but if I leave it playing on battery power computer will not sleep or hibernate. When battery reaches critical level computer will not shut down and I have to restart windows later. This seems like a problem with a driver.
I have problem with my Acer 5750g. When I playing games cooler work in passive mode, like it dont know that should work as much as possible.
After 5 minutes without additional cooler it goes overheat to 100 degree and turn off instantly.
When i turn my laptop on, the cooler starting work very good, like it should work all the time when it overheating. But after few seconds its turn into passive/silent mode and doesn't work properly till overheat and turn off again.
I just purchased an Aspire V5-561PG laptop. It has Windows 8.1 installed. I'm encountering a very frustrating problem with it and it seems to be a very common problem after searching on various tech forums. I am not able to get the laptop out of sleep mode once it goes into that mode. It's gone into sleep mode via inactivity, closing the laptop lid and by pressing Function+F4. I cannot get it to wake after each of these instances. The only thing I can do is hold down the power button to manually shut it down and then press the power button again to restart it. I'm not even 100% sure it's going into sleep mode with any of the 3 above scenarios. The screen goes black as you would expect but the lights in the bottom, front of the laptop are still all lit up. I would expect the lights to turn off when it's in sleep mode (maybe I'm wrong about that). I've changed the video drivers multiple times and that hasn't worked. I have the latest BIOS installed.
I have an Acer Aspire One with OS Win XP. This morning I went in the Power Management and decided to try Hibernate. I went away for a moment. When I returned, the On Switch was still green, but nothing worked. Black screen, HD dead like everything else. I tried F-Alt-F4 to no avail !
First I thought it was the contact problem with the power adapter then I fixed that problem. Now it simply turns on and and does nothing. After awhile even the fan comes on properly. But the laptop has no pic nothing no hardrive movement nothing.
When I am working on my laptop off battery power and I shut the monitor without shutting the pc down, at times it seems like the pc is in sleep mode but will not respond. I have to (I guess you would call it hard start it), reboot it to get it working again. Usually the screen is black when I reopen my laptop. Today, browser was barely visible. What is going on with my pc?
My Acer Aspire 4720 has an annoying CPU fan "on/off/on/off" behaviour that is impossible to control via software, so I wired it up with a resistor internally, soldering to a USB +5V header. The fan itself works great, but ...
The USB power (and thus the fan) stays on when I put the laptop into "sleep" mode. In Hibernation, it turns off as normal.
How can I make the USB power turn off when in normal "sleep" mode?
I have just bought the above laptop and gone through the setup. I've only input 2 passwords, both of which I've written down and it appeared to have set up okay. Unfortunately, the laptop lid got shut down and it won't accept either of the passwords I've written down.
I have a v3 571G laptop core i7 with a geforce 640m video card. Is not the faster video card but can handle advance video games in medium to high. Every time I play any video games, with settings from medium to high, at the beginning the fps are around 34 to 40 but after 10 to 20 min of playing, the fps gets down to 12 to 20 specially when there is explosions and such. Is my laptop video card dying or is something else?
So, I've had this problem from some time now. When I put my switch 10 to sleep, and then re-open it, the keyboard is not working anymore, like it has problem recharging drivers. Same issue happens sometime when I use it in tablet mode and then reconnect the dock to it, I've a very hard time trying to make the keyboard and touchpad working again. The fact is that the usb port on the dock doesn't seem to have any problem at all, only the touchpad and the keyboad. I can't figure out if that's a software or an hardware problem.

It had a few sound problems ( not that annoying but I'd rather get rid of them ^^ ) with my subwoofer, now and again it did some annoying sound like grzzzz when it went to the bass. I had to change the sound to the normal settings, then go back to the high definition sound. ( the one with 6 or 7 different "speakers", instead of the normal stereo one which has only 2, Left and Right. )
Sometimes, my music stopped playing "problems with the audio card" or something.
So I decided to get rid of those problems by installing the latest ( i think ) realtek audio driver.
After the installation, i realised that : 1. The sound didn't work anymore AT ALL 2. When I went in that audio sound properties, it only showed me the stereo, and I can't see the 2nd one which had a better sound quality ( more speakers, more 3d sound .. )
Anyway, I just would like to know if the weird noise coming from the subwoofer is a big problem, and if I should get it back to the shop, or if it's only a driver problem. And I also would like to know how to get my sound back, and my high quality + subwoofer aswell.
I know Michelle plays around with Acer laptops quite a bit and understands their numbering system.
I purchased a 5517 from Staples up here in Canada past Boxing Day sale for $299 (el cheapo unit)
Acer 5517-5632 includes Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, AMD Athlon 64 processor TF-20 (1.6ghz, 512kb L2 cache), 15.6" HD Acer CineCrystal LCD, ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics, 2gb memory, 160gb hard drive, DVD Super Multi DL drive, cardreader, wireless b/g.
Looked thru the laptop disassembly stickies above and couldnt find this model.
I recently purchased a 5517-5779 from best buy. Got a nice deal on it and i think im starting to see why...its only a 160gb HD which im kinda kicking myself for getting. To start with i was sitting at about 105gb with nothing of my own installed.
a week later im sitting at 99.6gb. i have still installed nothing. i have used many HP's and havent had this problem.. there seems to be a memory leak somewhere. Are these prominent with Acer products? I should have familiarized myself with Acer a bit more before purchasing one of their products. If i could resolve this issue i would be 100% satisfied with my newest purchase.
ETA-The pc has already had the geek squads "optimization and restoration" done.
My Acer Aspire 5517 Laptop is running Windows 7 X 64 with an AMD Athlon TF-20 Processor at 1.6Ghz with 2GB of physical memory. Every once in a while, and lately quit frequently, my screen goes black, and it will not boot...I have attached an exterior Monitor to it, with no success, so I assume it is not the video portion. To get it to boot I turn it off and on until it re-boots. Sometimes it reboots quickly and at other times it takes several minutes...up to 20 or 30 sometimes. I have run a disc check to see if all the sectors are good on the hard drive. It checks out okay..I thought if the BIOS was out of date, I would update it, to see if that work....

I leave my computer on during the day, and leave it occasionally for short periods of time..Lately, when I come back to it, the screen will be black..It is black because the computer turns itself off, for no reason that I can find out. When I turn it back on I get a caption that says the "user (name)has been locked out." Below that is a caption that I can click on that reads "switch user." If I click that caption, it says "user logged on." Which is the user that was just locked out! I click on that and my desktop comes up like nothing happened....
So far, to try and correct it, I have flashed the BIOS, because it needed updating. I thought this might work, but it has not corrected the problem. I have also done all of the standard things like defrag., cutting down on desktop icons, fewer starting programs, etc.
I have repaired a few laptop in my time so when a friend said his screen was black but he could read it with a flashlight I guessed right away it was an inverter problem.
I got a new inverter off of *bay, carefully removed the display bezel, swapped in the new inverter and powered it up. Successfully boots into Windows ! Shut it down, screwed the inverter down, put the bezel back on and now the display comes on for 1 second, just long enough to see that "Acer" splash screen, and then goes black. Yes you can still read the screen with a flashlight.
Checked the power in and out wires, they look good. Re-seated both connectors. unscrewed the inverter board from the display so that it is :floating". Nothing. Swapped in the old inverter and it acts the same ?
I have an aspire 5517 that will not boot up the power light comes on but nothing else happens. I've tried attaching an external monitor but it still won't work. All my stuff is on this computer and I need to at least back it up.
I have an Acer Aspire 5517 that was turning itself off and few weeks ago, which I wrote to the community about. It stays on now, but the screen is black. I was able to update the BIOS before it went black permanently. It does turn on, but nothing comes up on the screen..How do I trouble shoot it, when I can't see anything???
I'm trying to get the webcam working. I haven't used it in probably over a year, and now I can't seem to get it to work. I've read lots of posts about downloading a new driver but I've tried several different ones and none work. I have an Aspire 5517. When I go into the device manager it says the webcam is working....but it isn't.
Here is a link to flickr stream of Upgrade, [url] I made a video of it and once thru editing will post it...One thing in the photo stream you must undo all screws on the back, also on the top there are three hidden screws under the middle of the monitor covered with black stickers, just pierce with cross head...Also you need to run a rather large screwdriver down the right side of the body and bottom each side of the pad to release the plastic snaps ps familiarize yourself with ribbon fastener technology the tan fitting moves back then the ribbon comes out vice versa Please post success with Processor types!
Firstly I know very little on thsi kind of stuff so please excuse my lack of knowledge.
I've had my travelmate 5720 for about 4 months, and for as long as I have had it, it crashes when I play any kind of video. Not straight away, it may be after 2 minutes or after an hour. But if I'm playing a movie, its almost guaranteed to crash to a blue screen, and the system reboots. Its too random to try recreate the problem instantly, other than just playing a movie and...waiting.
