I have an Acer Aspire 5570z Notebook
with built in, DVD/CD Burner
Optiarc DVD RW AD-7530A ATA Device
Type: DVD/CD ROM Drives
My Cd/Dvd combo was working properly the other day, But now it doesn't read c.d's , only thing works in it now is DVD's.
The last thing i done before it went weird was burn a c.d on NTI Cd/Dvd Maker, and an error came up and said could not complete or something. When i open up my WMP to rip some songs, i notice it wasn't working. Everytime i put a c.d in, it make sounds of it spining, but not reading comes up. it says Please Enter A Disc. I tried almost everything, i cleaned the laser, i tried removing "upper and lower fliters" from the regedit thing, which wasn't there because i removed that once before when i had this problem.
My Acer Aspire 5570 notebook suddenly shuts down, (Fully charged battery.) I was charging that time. But it suddenly shuts down, the light indicator for charging was no longer lighting. I try to power it on, but its doesn't , there light which indicates that I was charging was no longer lighting. The charger is okay.
I've bought my Acer Aspire 5570 with T2450 Core Duo 2.0 CPU and Intel GMA950 Video 1.5 years ago and back then I wasn't into fiddling around with it, plus I also had warranty on it and didn't feel like voiding that.
But lately it has been pissing me off, because if I actually use it for anything other than browsing text-based web pages it gets hot. And if put under max load after 10minutes you run the risk of burning your hand if you touch the laptop underneath (75C according to RMClock Utility).
But now, since warranty is long over i decided to see what I can do to improve cooling. After spending a good amount of time looking for service manual I found one on ed2k network and set it download. Eager to get the things rolling I took it apart blindly (wasn't hard at all) and of course, right when I was done with the last screw the service manual finished downloading... *sigh* (To save you from the same fate I've uploaded the service manual at the end of this post.)
I have cleaned the heatsinks (there wasn't much hair, since i used to blow it out with compressed air occasionally), reapplied thermal paste and then I noticed that about 3/4 of air vent on the bottom of the laptop (where air gets sucked in for cooling) was blocked by a piece of removable plastic, whereas the fan was big enough to use the whole vent......................
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 188.8.131.520
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.
I have an Acer as5570-2609 aspire laptop that will not boot up. It is like new, hardly been used. When I power it up, the fan comes on for about 3 or 4 seconds, and the hdd light flashes three times in a row, then waits a second or two, the flashes three times again, then goes black. The dvd drive ejects and will spin up a disc, but thats it. I tried swapping in a known good hard drive and nothing helps. I also tried re-seating a few of the easily accessible modules, such as the ram and wireless. I still have not seen a single flicker of the LCD screen. No beeps, nothing...
I've been having this weird problem where my Fn+F5 combination (which toggles wireless on and off) has stopped working. I recently uninstalled, and then reinstalled, the lenovo driver for power management in windows 8 64, because I was having the same problem with putting the computer into sleep mode via Fn+F4 (I think by reinstalling the driver, it fixed the sleep mode problem but screwed up my "toggle wireless" ability via keyboard). If the power management driver was potentially the culprit for these two problems, and I reinstall it once again....
upgrading my Aspire 5570 notebook more than a year ago. This time, Iím feeling lucky to share some of my experiences about how I finally upgraded my CPU from a Core Solo T1350Core 2 Duo T7200.
Again, thanks to everybody here in Notebookreview forum especially adinu, hoggie, Mack1982, TehSuigi, krazyphire and bigozone for their insights and knowledge that helps me a lot throughout the whole process. So, letís get started!
Please refer to these post before you start. It'll save you a lot of time and trouble later on. Upgraded Acer 3680 Celeron CPU to a T5300! Aspire 5315 CPU Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide
What youíll need :Your new CPU (make sure it's compatible with your system ie; socket, FSB)Latest BIOS from Acer (upgraded to 1.3505 or latest)A good thermal paste (I would recommend Tuniq TX-2 or Arctic Silver 5 as well)Basic tools (screwdrivers, forceps, kitchen paper)Body static discharger (I would definitely recommend this as a precaution)Some alcohol, ear buds, sand paper grid 600,1200 & 2000 (optional for heat sink lapping)Lastly TIME and PATIENCE (youíll be needing these a lot definitely!)When youíre ready, lets get our hands dirty.
How to disassemble your notebook? I found out a very good video tutorial on how to disassemble my Aspire notebook on YouTube. So please take your time to view it and follow step by step as shown to help you to go through the process.
Lapping your heat sink (optional) Although itís not necessary, but I would recommend this process as another way to improve heat dissipation on your newly installed CPU. Refer to this page for detailed instructions.
The simple process:Clean your heat sink from old thermal paste residues with alcohol or equivalent of it using ear buds and kitchen papers.Apply a 600-grid sandpaper to smoothen the heat sink surface which comes into contact with your CPU.Repeat the process again with a 1200-gid sand paper until youíre satisfied.Finally, finish up by applying a 2000-grid sand paper to give you an almost mirror-finished surface. Wipe clean any dirt and residues left.....................................
I checked with Acer and Crucial.com to determine that I could upgrade from 1GB to 4 GB , removing the two existing 512 MGs and installing two 2 GBs in their place. When both 2 GBs were installed the computer would not boot. After checking with Crucial tech I tried with just one of the 2 GBs and then the other. Each worked fine individually.
I then downloaded the Vista Flash BIOS 1.32230 and after some help from the Acer tech people was able to install it. It did not change anything. Finally Installed one of the old 512 MGs with one of the new 2 GBs and that worked. Am now running on 2.5 Gigs which is an incredible improvement especially with the Vista OS. If anyone has been able to update to the full 4 GBs please let me know what I've missed. Incidentently, the 2 GB RAM can be ordered online from crucial.com for about $21 and installation is a snap ( about 5-10 minutes ).
I have acer 5570-4011 laptop with vista home (and ubuntu on a separate partition). I rebooted from cd, using winxp pe, deleted all files on vista partition, except those in the root, and started to install win xp pro. After installation files were copied to the hard drive, I restarted without cd and when setup continued, it gave me "file ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded. Error code is 7".
On MS support site they say about ACPI or memory problems and suggest to press F7 during that step to skip ACPI check, but it doesnt help in my case.
My uncle bought a Aspire E1-572-6870 series notebook six months before for me from USA. After using 10 to 15 days I noticed the internal speaker is not working. But the headphone and/or microphone is working very fine. I went to a local laptop repairing shop for diagnosis. Unfortunately they were unable to find out the actual problem. They suggest me to change the speaker chip may result solve the problem. Before changing the chip I want to diagnose once more for accuracy about the problem. Any online check can be possible?
I've read that e-sata may or may not be powered depending on how the host is designed, does dell's e-sata/usb combo port self-power external 2.5" e-sata drives or do they need their adapters/usb cable used?
It comes with nVidia 7200 Go video card. Theoritically, nVidia video card could come with HDMI, but not always the case. So..how do I know if mine has one? I am actually looking for eSata port since I want to purchase an external HD for backup purpose.
So the Yoga 2 Pro's single 1'8" audio interface is billed as a "combo" jack that¬†functions¬†both as a line-out (for headphones, speakers) and a line-in (for plugging in other audio devices to play through the¬†computer's internal speakers).¬† Well, this doesn't seem to be the case - I've tried ini vain to do¬†this with a Line 6 guitar interface with no luck whatsoever.¬† The Realtek¬†Audio HD software shows the jack as performing two functions, but you cannot change what it's being used for - a difference from earlier versions of the Realtek software (apparently this was most easy to change in the Windows XP version). ¬† How I can properly configure the combo jack to¬†work as a line-in port, as was advertised when I bought the computer?¬†
Iím trying to solve a problem with an Acer aspire One notebook.
The function (FN 5 ) hotkey button combo do not work, other hotkey commands like volume,sleep,screen blank all work, the note book has an external data show connected to it and it will not connect with the data show using FN5,several different data shows have been tried to no avail, the notebook is running XP home.
I have looked at device manager and there are no yellow exclamation marks apparent.
Early morning, i get up and go to my laptop for work emails and facebook, START ERROR.
After a shower and breakfast, it starts then TOUCHPAD ERROR.
Bring it to office and get there 9:00 a.m, run TOUCHPAD then good but WIRELESS LAN ERROR.
Before i manage my office works, run WIRELESS LAN then good but goes to BLACK SCREEN ERROR.
After half an hour talks for stuffs, BLACK SCREEN ok then AUTO RESTART ERROR.
Half an hour later, it come back to windows very well but FAN is still sleeping.
Emails, market data pages are running. So I keep to carry on without FAN working. Some minutes later, SHUT DOWN automatically.
Try to restart, cleverly comes to windows back and FAN also works very well but CD comes out without commands.Then to lunch. ¬† After lunch, i resume my works. My laptop is also again to above ERRORS.Then go back to my home at 6:00 p.m.
I have an Aspire One 6cell, and have had a terrible experience with it. Let me start by giving you what happened until now...
On January 12, I purchased an Aspire One here in Belgium. It's a model with a 6cell battery, QWERTY keyboard.
The next day when I'm charging it, the LED indicator, which was red, indicating that the system was still charging, all of a sudden, turned off. The laptop, was on on that moment was on and Windows noticed that the system went on battery power. However, I hadn't touched the cables or anything, it just stopped charging. After 15-30 minutes, it started charging again. It seemed something had to discharge or so before it went on. I tested in another plug. Nothing. I removed the battery and tried switching it on: again nothing (which made me think it had nothing to do with the battery).
I called the shop and they said it had to return to Acer, which could take up to 4 weeks. I was a bit dissapointed by that, so I called Acer instead. They told that it was a known problem on the motherboard, they would come pickup the system and I would have it back a few days later.
So they came, about a week later, they returned it. On the warranty note, it said: no problem found, bios updated. I retested the system, after a day, it did it again. So I called Acer again. They would come again to pick up the machine.
Again, a week or so later, it returned, only to find that again, they didn't fix the problem. On top of that, the cover of the laptop was severly scratched. I called them again, they would fix it this time for sure.
Again, it came back. It worked fine for about 2 weeks... Then, the same problem came back: while charging, it stopped charging. I was completely stunned, so I went back to the store where I bought it. They would take care of it............
I used to use Omega drivers on mine until I upgraded to Premium x64. I have another 5672 issue (not entirely sure if I should have made a thread of it or not though).
On removing the HDD: The USB bus for the ports on the left side of the laptop rests under the HDD. When I removed the HDD the USB cable was stuck to it and, therefore, lodged out of it's motherboard connection. I can't see or find where to slide it back in. It "looks" as if it connects to the motherboard the same way the keyboard cable does.
I have installed a V-lited version of vista onto my acer aspire one, but cant get the Lan to work or the Wlan, the Wlan doesnt even show up in the device manager and i cant find drivers for it as i dont know wat module it is.
Does anyone know which wireless card it is or were i can find drivers for the wlan?
Also i cant find a driver for the ethernet controller.
i have an acer aspire 5335 and the touch pad aint working i have not installed anything new or used a mouse or anything i have even restored back to factory settings and i cant seem to install the drivers i have downloaded them from acer offical site but they aint working. i cant even open the synapsis to even do any test or anything and i have tried the fn+f7 and that is not doing anything.
I have an acer aspire 5920g laptop that has recently stopped working , when I power on the computer the fan goes on and the power on light also goes on and two other lights flash once but nothing comes up on the screen and the computer never starts the boot sequence....the fan then goes off but the power light stays on , I already put new thermal compound on the processor and graphics card...I tried removing the ram modules , the wifi card and the hard drive ect. nothing seems to work ,
I have had this tablet for less than one week. Under settings in windows 8.1 modern interface is a control slider for the screen brightness. it does not appear to do anything. I would like to be able to change screen brightness suit my needs, but I cannot make this work. What settings I need to change or maybe software I need to update? There is one Acer driver update which does not load properly and always says fail. I believe it has to do with screen settings. Could that be the problem?
