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 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.
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 22.214.171.1240
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...
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.
A few days ago I bought an Acer Aspire 5542 (AMD Turion II X2 M500) with Windows 7 .
The software on the laptop is running very smoth because the Aspire 5542 is coming with Windows 7 64 bit.
The problem it's just one: the fan is a bit noise and is permanently ON(when the laptop is idle also ....)(the same situation like for Timeline Series)
Someone of you had the same laptop with the same problem?
Someone have a service manual for this new model(Aspire 5542)? Is it posible to buy one(service manual) from somewhere? I want to try to open the chassis to seen the fan, and to try to solve this problem....If someone already do it first please post some pictures!
Let's start off with: Acer Aspire V3-772G (Intel(R) ore(TM) i7-4702MQ CPU @2.20GHz, 8 gb Ram) ¬† Regardless: After noticing a slight dip in preformance from games and use of my laptop in general so i decided to clean the fans. As this laptop is close to impossible to open up i decided to clean it the easy way, to blast compressed air directly into the fan in slow and infrequent blasts. After getting alot of dust out of the system i turned the laptop back on only to hear this "cd-reading"-like hissing from the left side of the laptop (where the fan is). Being worried i might have broken something i turned it stright off, and then on again realising there was not much i could do about it right now. ¬† I am worried i might have spun the fan to fast, causing this, as the fan did not make this sound when i bought it new or before i cleaned it for that sake. It was bought online from a norwegian store (i currently live in norway) at 2014-08-18. I thought i would ask here before i contacted the store or support to see if this is just me over-reacting or if
Acer: Full model: E1-522-65208G1TMnkkI just bought this 'fully' loaded notebook with 8 GB RAM, 1 TB Disk and an AMD 6 in Switzerland. However, using it is no pleasure as it just blows air from and makes CONSTANT fan noise. The device, bottom does not get hot though.What do I do - Bios update? Windows 8.1 ?
I ordered and received my Acer 1410 (Celeron SU2300, WD Scorpio Blue 250GB, Windows 7 64, 2GB RAM) a little over a week ago and while I like almost every aspect of it, I'm wondering if the high pitched noise / whine I'm hearing from it is normal?
Basically I only hear it when there isn't much noise around, but it's still mildly distracting. It mainly comes from the area near the indicator lights, but is most apparent under the laptop where the RAM / HD slot is. For some reason the sound is much louder with the AC adapter plugged in. On battery, the noise is basically gone (but will come back for short periods of time). I can also hear the whine through the headphone jack if nothing is playing (at least on AC power).
What might be the cause of this noise and is there any way I can get rid of it? The RMClock trick doesn't work since the option to "Run HLT command when OS is idle" is grayed out and cannot be selected.
If I decide to return this and get another 1410 later (since the online store I bought it at is sold out right now), would I be likely to get another one with this whine/noise?
I have a problem with my aspire 5733 fan. Sudenly yesterday it began to make a loud noise (louder than when playing games before). I have noticed that when CPU Temperature is above 50c the fan turns on, and when bellow 50c the fan is off. This happens on both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04. I have had this laptop for less than 3 years.¬†
I have an acer 5741 g laptop ..when i try to turn it on with or without battery , it makes a single tick noise in hard disk section and turns off...i tried using faulty laptop's hdd in another laptop but it is working fine..even in some instances after turning off, it automatically tries to turn on but goes through same tick noise and turns off.¬†
I just tried new hdd in faulty laptop but it makes same tick noise an turns off. **bleep** i try going into bios with f2 but it opens cmos and turns off again...
are AA1 owners able to hear the fan on their netbooks? mine isn't loud and doesn't change when the netbook is tilted, but curious if they're SUPPOSED to be silent. i don't mind the sound personally, just sounds like a tiny motor spinning in a quiet room - no clicking or anything like that.
my acer is 2.5 years old and the fan began noisy last few weeks but stil works, i open to clean the fan but nothing to clean.. everything is clean and no problem that i can see, the noise is still running...
i have a 5810T which i purchased recently. i've installed all the latest updates and drivers from both microsoft and acer.
however, i've noticed the following problem. when my adaptor is unplugged, i hear a white noise/hissing sound coming from both the left and right speakers. when i plug the adaptor back in, the sound is gone.
i've installed the realtek drivers, adjusted settings in the sound options, etc.
I bought a 4810 about a week ago & so far I'm pretty happy with it, but one things bothers me & I'm not sure if it's normal or not.
After the laptop's been on for awhile (maybe 30 minutes+) it will make a strange snapping or clicking noise (definitely not the hard drive.) It seems to come from the screen area although I'm not positive on that. It's pretty rare that it happens, but lately I've noticed it happening when the laptop powers off.
Every minute or so, I'll hear what sounds somewhat like the loud tick of a clock coming more or less from the left side of my laptop. I can't tell if it's fan or hd related, but it's extremely annoying. It's definitely internal, and it's not coming out of the speakers (system volume is set to zero to eliminate feedback possibility). If I had to identify the sound source, it would seem to be coming from somewhere between the Tab and F8 keys. Weird, I know, but that's the best I can describe it.
I just picked this baby up on Saturday and I'm about to return it as it has to be flawed.
2.8Ghz with the bluray drive. I've upgraded it from Vista64 to Win7 RTM.
Even at "silent mode" the fan is louder than my 17" MacBook Pro or my 15" Thinkpad W500.
That seems...wrong. It's blowing hot air out even when the machine is just sitting there doing absolutly nothing. It's sitting next to me on my desk next to the W500 (which is dead silent running discrete graphics). It's in STAMINA mode, running in SILENT, and still loud.
This will be a fun return as I am going to fight the 15% as the sales guy told me it was a quiet machine.
This seems to be a common problem with Vaio notebooks, especially the SZ series.
I've had an SZ460 for a couple of years, and I'm starting to have problems with the fan. It's not the loud buzzing noise you hear when the processor is overworked. It's more like a rattling noise. I took the fan/heatsink out completely and cleaned it with a can of air, but the problem still persists. I have a feeling the bearings are shot.
The only replacement fans I could find are on eBay for $30-40, and they appear used. Where can I find an OEM fan for this notebook?
I recently bought a Sony Vaio FW. I found that the Blu-ray ROM (which is a Optiarc BD ROM BC-5500s) is extremely noisy (I am not a very picky person, but the noise is very annoying and even disturbing my video watching.) Anyone with similar experience? Anyone has ever requested Sony to change a new Blu-ray ROM which is quieter? Which manufacturer of the blu-ray should be quieter?
I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.
The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?
Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:
Aspire A5538-1096 [url]
Aspire Timeline 5810-4784 [url]
My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?
