Acer :: Aspire 5536 Boot - Win7

Nov 9, 2009

I have a brand new Acer Aspire 5536. It came pre-installed with Vista which I have repalced with Windows 7. I did a clean install, first formatting the hard drive.

The boot process takes 7-10 minutes before the login screen appears. Once logged in the sysrtem appears to be working fine. I have re-instaslled multiple times (using different disks) but no matter what I try it takes an age to boot.

Could my laptop be faulty - does anyone else have Win7 running on one these?

Acer :: Aspire 5536

Apr 15, 2010

I've just bought one of these as a "refurbished" item and have very mixed feelings.

The good thing is it seems to be quite a nice machine for basic computing.

The bad things include:

1. It has no ExpressCard port. I researched extensively prior to purchase, and most sites listing this model say it has such a slot. The Acer site doesn't, but that site doesn't mention the slot on my AS 2920. I really need such a slot to use my firewire card. Is there a guide anywhere to what the numbers and letters mean after the main Acer type number?

2. It came with Vista, but I thought it might be upgradeable to W7 as there are drivers on the Acer site, and it was a current model while the free upgrades were available. The latest bios, 1.11, still reports 2.0 in the slic dept. Can anyone suggest any way to progress this? Is any sort of cheaper paid-for upgrade possible?

3. I'd hoped switching on virtualisation would be easy, but nothing seems to appear in the bios. I've seen the other thread here. Frightening!

4. I've been running Windows 7 64-bit within the 30-day limit. The mouse driver from the Acer site breaks the touchpad's operation completely, so I've had to revert to the basic drivers. Other drivers from Acer seem OK. W7 seems to have fixed some of the networking problems seen in Vista, but why has the underscore suddenly become forbidden in a network name?

5. I'm planning to purchase W7 Professional if I like Win7 after about 25 days, or load Ubuntu or some other Linux instead. Anyone running Ubuntu on one of these?

Acer :: Aspire 5536 Slow Booting

Nov 16, 2009

I have a brand new Acer Aspire 5536 Notebook. It came pre-shipped with Vista which I did not want.

So I tried a fresh install of Win7 - formatted drive etc,. Machine takes 5+ mins to boot so I put this down to a compatibility issue and tried XP. However I have the same problem, fresh install with only updates installed and it takes forever to boot (even longer than Win7).

Once booted performance is ok (in Win7 it was near perfect). Any ideas, I am beginning to think it is defective.

Acer :: Aspire 5536 And WDC Scorpio Blue Temps

Dec 19, 2009

I just got an Aspire 5536 and I'm running some diagnostics on it. While running SpinRite to test the drive I'm seeing HDD temps as high as 58įC!

This is a WDC 320 GB Scorpio Blue drive rated with a maximum operating temperature of 60įC and it's in a brand new machine sitting on the desk (so the vents are clear).

Isn't this ridiculously warm for this laptop? Does anyone else have the laptop (or the WDC 320 HDD) that can give me some comparison numbers?

Acer :: Aspire 5536- Missing Screen Symbols

Feb 2, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 5536 which is running Windows 7. Recently, I have noticed that two of the On-Screen Symbols have gone missing.

Previously, when I pressed the Volume '+' or '-' buttons, a small Icon like symbol would appear on the screen showing a speaker graphic and a moving '|||||||' bar.

Also, if I pressed the button to disable the Touchpad, a symbol would appear momentarily showing that the pad had been disabled/enabled.

How I can restore these symbols?

Acer Aspire 5536 :: Black Screen - Led And Fan Comes On When Power Up

Jan 23, 2015

Purchased in 2009 with free upgrade to Win 8.1 Pro. Has been a great computer up to now. On power up, LED's and fan come on but screen is black. Can not see anything behind screen when shining a torch on it. Has worked twice since fault appeared, once on re-boot and once when pressing DEL key. Replaced battery on motherboard and tried combinations of the two RAM boards. Still not working. Have recovery disks, but they are for the old Vista software.

Acer :: Aspire 1810TZ And Win7

Jan 20, 2010

I have a strange problem with Win7 (no matter if x86 or x64)...

I have 30Mbit internet connection, so I want to download some bigger files through internet during night.

I have all extra power features disabled (on CPU slowdown and screen dim and off allowed) and after few hours (sometimes 1, sometimes 4), the Windows 7 is in one of the two states:

a) when I move the mouse to wake up screen, only cursor goes up and I must restart notebook

b) when I move the mouse to wake up screen, screen goes up, but NO INTERNET CONNECTION

Must say, that it is the same with WIFI and also ETHERNET and is for sure Win7 problem, as when I install WinXP, everything is fine.

I just got an Aspire One D250 netbook. It runs Win XP SP3, but I can upgrade to Vista or Win7.

Does anybody have the Aspire One with Win7? If so, how does it behave? Should I upgrade my memory? Also, the netbook is equipped with the low end embedded Intel graphics chipset, can it hold Win7 or Vista?

Acer :: Aspire 5739G Win7 Desktop Lock Up

May 13, 2010

I have a big issue with my Acer Aspire 5739G laptop that I recently purchased through Ebay. Actually, I bought it from Newegg dba Fred's Fresh Deals. (Newegg sells their returned items and cosmetically damaged goods under this name on Ebay). The laptop was advertised as a possible hard drive issue (it couldn't load windows and the error code looked like a boot sector virus, so I purchased it thinking a simple reformat will fix it).

Specs:

CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2G
Screen 15.6"
Memory Size 4GB DDR3
7200RPM Hard Disk 320GB
Optical Drive DVD Super Multi
Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M
Video Memory 1GB
Communication Modem, Gigabit LAN and WLAN
CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo
CPU Speed T6600(2.20GHz)
CPU FSB 800MHz
CPU L2 Cache 2MB
Chipset
Chipset Intel PM45
Display
Screen Size 15.6"
Wide Screen Support Yes
Resolution 1366 x 768
LCD Features LED backlight & Acer CineCrystal Technology
Operating Systems
Operating System Windows 7

Anyways...

After I did a fresh reformat of the hard drive and a fresh install of Windows 7, the laptop freezes/locks up after 10-30mins on the desktop. I cannot move the mouse or anything, so I have to do a hard reboot. I don't understand how it is happening.

I updated the mobo's Phoenix driver to the latest one, and tried older VGA Nvidia drivers because I thought it might be a video card driver issue; It is still locking up. I went as far as to purchase a brand new laptop hard drive and the problem still arises. There is no BSOD. As noted earlier, the computer just simply freezes. I cleared CMOS....240M GT VGA is running factory settings....I tried leaving only 1 ram stick in the laptop. I never ran through a problem like this before.

I ran it on Safe Mode and the computer seems to be working fine as long as I do simple tasks or remain idle. I did the SFC /SCANNOW in safe mode and it locks up. I attached my event view file to this email. (I tried to install RivaTuner to underclock factory settings, but the program could not load).

I just recently purchased an Acer Aspire 5536-5883 with Vista. The problem is that it srtarts up kinda slowly. Could this be due to the endless amount of unneeded programs? If so, what can I safely remove?

Also, HOW do I remove items from just the start up? I seem to have forgotten.

Acer :: 5536- Bios Access

May 27, 2010

A friend with a desktop PC discovered that by some weird key combination before boot, he could get into further bios screens and set timeouts for disk access etc.

I'm trying to find a way to switch off the Realtek device at the bios level on my AS 5536, with Phoenix bios. Is this possible?

Acer Aspire E1 522-3657 :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Oct 11, 2014

I have a Acer E1 522-3657 computer, which my son set-up for me but did not make the recovery disc(s). The unit is just outside of the warranty period when the hard drive failed. The hard drive just makes a clicking noise and after the logo screen appears it goes to a blue screen with a box that has the following message with in, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert recovery Media and Hit any key.....Then Select 'Boot Manager' to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media.
 
I have installed a brand-new Western Digital 1T Sata3 harddrive to replace the Toshia 750 GB original Drive. After turning the computer on and at the logo screen I press and hold F2, this takes me to the InsydeH20 Setup Utility Screen. I see under the "Information" menu that the installed harddrive model and serial number appear. I see in the "Boot" menu, Boot Mode: "UEFI" and Secure Boot: "Enabled".
 
Under the "Exit" menu, Exit Saving Changes is highlighted. When I press F10 a "setup Configuration" box appears asking to save configuration changes and exit now? "Yes" is highlighted to which I hit Enter and are returned to the "Default Boot Device.......page. I then hit ecs twice and are at a black screen with the message No bootable device -- Please Restart system_appearing in the upper left corner of the screen. I then push and hold the power button until the computer shuts off.
 
I have ordered from acer the "Acer E-recovery Media Disc Set", which is specific to the SNID of my computer. I have not attempted to format the new hard drive in any way.  I assume the E-recovery Media Disc Set will handle that operation due to the multiple partitions required.
 
In view of the above situation, do I need to set up the computer in any way before I start to utilize the E-recovery Media Disc set. I assume the Media will be on CD's. The computer was running Win 8.0 which was updated to Win 8.1 and was running very well, very stable.

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad U300s Boot Error After Canceling Installation Win7 From USB

Jul 13, 2014

I tried to install a new version of Win7 on my ideapad U300s from a usb that set to be a bootable device containing *iso file.

I also set USB as first boot priority in BIOS setting, of course. But when the installation began, I canceled them all and restarted my laptop but found it troubled.

Here is its error report.

From then, I can no longer boot my laptop from USB as well as enter BIOS setting to set back HDD as first boot priority. 

Both Enter/ESC make it restart and then turn to this dumb black screen.

I think I should remove the BIOS battery to turn BIOS setting into its default, shouldn't I?

Acer :: Aspire 9301 Boot

Oct 3, 2008

Machine is an Aspire 9301AWSMi running XP SP2 rather than Vista.

On boot, the machine shows the ACER BIOS screen but after that the display just goes blank. Have tried to boot from the Windows XP CD and the only difference is that following the BIOS screen I then get a message saying "Windows is inspecting your hardware configuration" and then a second or 2 later, back to a blank screen. No disc or CD activity.

Is this another ACER Motherboard problem or maybe a HDD failure?

Acer :: Aspire One Doesn't Boot

Nov 10, 2008

After I turn on the power, the harddisk led doesn't turn on, just the CAP and NUM led flash once. The screen doesn't turn on, even the Acer logo doesn't appear. I can hear something is turning inside the notebook, but it's definitely not the harddisk.

I wonder if I had pressed some wrong buttons, and disable the notebook.

Acer :: Aspire Wont Boot

Nov 19, 2007

I have an acer aspire 1681wlmi which has just finished its extended 3 year warranty. The problem started by freezing upon start up on a white screen then the freeze up got quicker and quicker each time i rebooted it. Now the power on starts the hd, everything flashes like normal and after 5-6 seconds the hd stops and the hd light goes out. It wont boot from cd, it tries, the cd spins then everything goes dead again. I have tried all the previously mentioned fixes mentioned on this forum like removing battery, memory etc, i even tried to dismantle the whole thing but when it got down to the motherboard i did not want to break anything and put it back together again. I havea feeling the mother board is dead....
