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.

Apple :: Some Symbols In PDFs- Greek Letters- Mathematics Symbols- Showing As Black Boxes In Preview.app

May 5, 2010

That explains it. Have a PDF where something as simple as a lowercase alpha, beta -- or a division sign -- is rendering as a blacked-out box.

In Font Book, all fonts on this machine are listed under PDF, as well. Running OS X 10.6.3.

The PDF works fine on a friend's Vista machine.

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 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 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 58C!

This is a WDC 320 GB Scorpio Blue drive rated with a maximum operating temperature of 60C 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?

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Laptop Screen All Symbols - Cannot Get Into Account?

Nov 21, 2014

I've had this Dell Inspiron 15 for all of about 3 hours, and when I'm on the internet, it randomly shuts off, turns back on, and displays this:

[URL].....

This computer has Windows 8 and when I type in my password in the box I suspect is the login screen, it just comes up with more symbols.

Can't get into computer. Computer is covered in symbols and gibberish. Is there a way to factory reset this computer without actually being able to get in? Or should I just send it back?

Acer :: 5536- Bios Access

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 :: NTLDR Is Missing On My Aspire One

Feb 16, 2010

I'm not sure what happened as the babysitter was on my computer while I was gone...when I went to turn on my Acer, this is the message I got...

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
I did that and once again got the same message.
I tried using the eRecovery (alt+f10) and gave me the options to restore using disk or to factory settings. I chose the factory settings as this computer did not come with any discs. It went 53% through the restore program and then it stopped leaving me the message...
Restore failed!
Reason:0x0000006

Acer :: 5335Volume Level Missing On Screen

Oct 2, 2009

I was doing some house cleaning on a co-workers Acer Aspire 5335. Cleaning out all of the junk and bloatware and such. In the process of doing this, I seemed to have either disabled or uninstalled the utility that shows the volume level on the screen when you turn the volume up or down.

Do any of you by chance know what program controlls that? I went to the Acer site to look, but I'm not sure what program it may be.

Acer :: Aspire 5570 Bluetooth Device Missing

Apr 5, 2008

I have upgraded to Windows XP and reinstalled all the drivers I need from the Acer website. Wireless networking is fine.

The problem is, when I slide the Bluetooth switch on the front of my computer while a device (Nintendo Wiimote) is waiting to connect to the computer, "No Device" in green text shows up on the bottom of my screen. I think this shows the driver is somewhat working and the hardware is detected.
The LED indicator beside the switch does not light up.

I go to my control panel and double click the "Bluetooth Configuration" icon, nothing happens for a while, then a single dialog shows up saying "Bluetooth device not found. Please verify that your Bluetooth device is properly connected and turned on." showing only an OK button.

Inside the computer management window, under device manager, a group called "Bluetooth Devices" exists, and inside is something named "Bluetooth Bus Enumerator". I have right clicked on both and tried "Scan for Hardware Changes" and nothing happened. The properties show that "This device is working properly"

Drivers Provider is Broadcom
1/11/2006
Version 5.0.1.1500

Yes I have restarted my computer several times.
All of the above actions were performed four, once with my finger holding the switch and once without, then again with the Wiimote in a waiting-for-connector mode.

My Wii is turned off with the power supply unplugged, there are no other devices with Bluetooth in my house.

how to get Bluetooth working.

There are other problems with this laptop, the card reader only supports SD cards, not Memory Sticks or xD cards. That's a problem for another day. However I would never recommend this laptop and this brand to anyone, but it was pretty cheap.

Acer Aspire V3 471G :: Advanced Startup Option Missing

Mar 1, 2015

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. I don't know if it's because I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 but I used that previously when I need to go to safe mode. Suddenly it disappeared. I can only pick two options, "Continue to Windows 8.1" and "Turn off the PC".

Acer :: Aspire 5100 ... Lots Of Beeps On Startup And NTLDR Missing

Dec 21, 2008

My fathers notebook has been acting up for awhile. It beeps continuously at startup.

You would have to "F2" to the BIOS then exit the BIOS, then start up screen to come up again, beeps again repeat "F2" back to BIOS, but eventually XP would load. Unfortunately everything was sluggish, keyboard wouldnt work right. So in my limited computer knowledge I decided to reformat the notebook. I could not find any back up disk that came with the notebook so I created a back up disk from factory settings via the Acer eRecovery Management process. I have ran this recovery disk twice. Both times I have installed the recovery disk I get NTLDR missing as well as the beeps have not gone away. From some online research beeps mean computer is telling us something is wrong with the hardware. Number of beeps tells what specifically; unfortunately I cant find what continuous beeping means. NTLDR missing I found usually means that the computer is looking in the wrong place for the file.

I have no idea what I should do next to resolve the problem. Should I go out and buy an OME copy of XP Pro. Will friends XP Pro disks work as long as I use the XP Key found on the bottom of my laptop? How can i figure what hardware is causing the notebook to beep?

Ideally what I would like to achieve is a clean install with the most limited amount of Acer bloat ware installed. I am trying to find a list of what programs are needed and what programs are bloatware.

Acer Aspire 3820T :: Raise Sound Volume - Up Arrow Key Missing

Sep 18, 2014

How can I increase volume without the UP arrow key?  Normally do Fn-Up. Volume is only issue (can page up then down to scroll). Control panel options look like they increase volume, but they don't. Windows troubleshooting deals only with the sound card, which is fine.  (Old laptop, so I don't want to replace the key).

Acer Aspire M3 581T :: Restoring Windows 8 - File Missing / No Longer To Boot Up System

Jan 14, 2015

I have an acer M3 581T which I bought about a year ago. Now, windows crashed and said there was a file missing. I am no longer able to boot up the system, I've tried the erecovery (alt f10) but it just proceeds and says it's not able to boot. I have no recovery cd/usb at hand. It is of my understanding that this ultrabook has two harddrives. One SSD on which the operating system is installed and one HDD with the other files on.What do I do to make it work again? I do not care if all my files are lost.

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.
