Acer :: Aspire 5630 Noisy DVD Playback


I have a new Aspire 5630 with vista installed. The disk drive is very high speed and whistles loudly when installing applications from dvd. I expect this and it is not a problem The trouble is that when i try to play a music DVD the same sound completely swamps the music and so DVD playback is a NO NO.

On my desktop PC I had a similar problem and had to install Nero Drivespeed which allows me to set playback speed to "silent"

This does not seem to work on vista ( neither does any other program that i have tried.)

Surely this must be a problem to a lot of people and I would assume that there would be a setting in the bundled DVD playback software to solve this problem. Or perhaps there is?

Acer :: 8230 - No DVD Playback
I own a 8230 and will not play a dvd or bluray with Acer Arcade Deluxe...it did in the past.

When I try it seems to open up a screen and says " this program cannot display the webpage" weird. Won't play any AVI files in my hard drive also.

all other programs with this sof ware seem to work ok.

It does ask to download an update V2.1.0 6010...but it fails....

Acer :: Aspire 5735Fan Is Suddenly Noisy
I bought this laptop about a month ago from PC World. I hadn't had any problems with it and thought that I had made a great choice. Now, all of a sudden the fan makes a loud and very annoying noise (similar to that of a drill) for about 2 minutes and the stops. This happens when I turn it on and off too. Nothing I do seems to make any difference and it is happening more regularly now than three hours ago when it started.

Acer :: Dull Screen Aspire 5630
When I use to plug my laptop into the mains you could see the screen got a lot brighter as though it was a power surge. For some reason that no longer happens the display is quite dull and tough to read unless in a dark room!

There was a distinct difference to screen brightness between 'High performance' and 'Power saver' mode. This is no longer the case and the laptop seems stuck in power saver brightness!

Dell :: Horribly Noisy DVD Drive
Is there any way the DVD drive noise can be reduced? When I put in some DVD/Cds it is so loud I can't even here the sound coming out of the computer. And the all laptop vibrate , I am almost afraid it will damage the drive altogether.

The thiing is, it does not do it for all dvd/ cds. but when it does, it is pratically useless using them. And when I am in a public place it is outright embarassing!

Acer :: Aspire 5630 Power To All USB Ports Stays On
I have an Acer Aspire 5630 and the USB ports do not go off when Windows is shutdown, hibernating or when it goes into slleep (standby) mode. They only go off when I disconnect the AC power. I just bought an external USB drive as my internal is almost full, but I don't want to have the external drive on 24/7. Disconnecting the drive is a bit inconvenient as I use the laptop with an external display and keyboard and keep the laptop itself hidden behind my desk. I updated the BIOS to Ver. 3.60, but I don't see settings in the BIOS for USB ports. Can these ports be turn off programatically. Do I need a special Acer Application or drivers to turn off the USB ports? I removed all the Acer Management bloatware that came with the laptop. Are there any jumpers inside the laptop that need to be changed?

Do you have an Idea about what it is ( tomorrow I will update the graphic card driver to verify if this is the problem, if not I don't know what will be the problem.

Acer :: How To Take Out Aspire 6920g Dvd-r Out
this thing makes a loud noise and know one responded to my thread concering my DVD-R :'I'll guess I have to do it on my own or call acer support . But how can i take this thing out so i can see if some screw is lose or there is some dents(How could there be dents who knows)I'd like to see the and were they are located...i'll probably be ended calling support with my dad, Hes another thing. Some CD's it makes no noise, and its always working with those CD's. Other CD's make hella lotta noise...this is a werid conclusion but I THINK DVD's make no noise, and CD's make noise, now not just Music CD's but i mea CD's with 700m not 4 gb like DVD's.

I replaced it with another harddrive. Now BIOS still won't recognize harddrive or DVD-drive (can't remember if it recognized DVD earlier with original harddrive). I can't open DVD-drive, so obviously it's not getting any power. if this a sign of broken MB, or just loose cabling? Or something else? If it's loose cabling, how to check it?

Acer :: 5630 Lcd
problem i have with my lcd screen.P01-10-09_14.18.jpg

As you can see the screen is completely white, its hard to tell by the picture but the edges off the screen are fading to black and there is lots of little lines running horizontally as well.

Now when i plug an external screen the picture comes up on the external and the computer works fine, just seems that the laptop screen is playing up for some reason.

Also when i turn the laptop off for an hour or so the screen suddenly comes back to life, sometimes for days and sometime for only a couple of hours.

Acer :: Aspire 5570 Dvd/Cd Combo Ain't Working
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.

Acer :: How To Remove DVD ROM Drive From Aspire 1650 Series
Has anyone got a process and/or pictures of how to remove the DVD drive from an Aspire series notebook? Most other laptops ive seen are just a slider or single screw but seemingly not that on this model.

Ive even gone as far as removing all the screws on the underside but it still doesn't loosen the drive.

I want to remove it to clean and check another model drive to see if its a drive fault or not and if there is a fault replace.

Acer :: Aspire 5050 Loosing HDD And DVD Drive In XP & Crash
My 5050 crashes XP every few minutes, maybe half hour sometimes with an 0x07 blue screen.

I have temporarily taken to booting ubuntu (llinux OS) off a USB pen drive and it works fine, however, i might well see the HDD and DVD drive in Ubuntu but its not long before they dissapear from the visibilty of the OS. Of course this would be a crash in XP but not under these circumstances.

I can hear that the hdd is running and the cd drive will open so its not a power issue or temps.

I think the mobo ide controller is falling over or connections associated with it.

I cannot identify the ide controller (if it is a seperate component to the mobo itself) or investigate problem further without some knowledge & ideas from experianced members here.

Even trying to take this notebook apart seemed difficult & I gave up after a few screws were out. Anyone got a strip down guide/service manual and more importantly some ideas on my fault.

At first I was thinking of maybe a dry joint on the HDD connection but that was before I ran Linux OS and discovered I was actually losing visibility of both IDE hardwares. Not just the HDD, and not losing power either.

Acer :: 5630 Back Of Screen Melts
I have acer 5630 bought in 12/08, 5 months later---- charged overnight. Woke up in morning to find that top corner on back of screen is melted and bubbled up, like it shorted out from the inside. Sent to Acer and tech says " You had to put it next to a heat source". I told them NO WAY!, but they say there is no way this could happen without a heat source from the outside. I guess someone got in the house last night and took a propane torch to it, or maybe they held a candle to it for ten minutes. There is no damage to the screen and the unit still works fine. This is driving me crazy. Oh, I forgot maybe our chihuahua held the torch to it.

Acer :: 5630 Power Adapter For Netbook?
I currently have two Acer laptops, an Aspire 5630 laptop and an Aspire One Netbook. The power adapter for the 5630 is a bit bigger (i.e., the "black box in the middle of the power cord) than the one for the netbook. The adapter for the netbook won't charge the 5630, however, when I plug in the adapter for the 5630 into the netbook, it says "charging" and seems to be charging the netbook fine. My question is whether this could do any damage to netbook or the netbook battery.

Acer :: 5630 Laptop Touchpad Software
I can't seem to load the Touchpad Software fot the Acer 5630 Laptop ? Do I use the Alps or the Synaptics Software ? When I load the Alps I get pop-ups on startup that don't go away asking me if I want to start Apoint.exe and other files. I uncheck the pop-up but it still keeps coming back ? When the computer fully loads and I right mouse click on the Touchpad Icon in the right bottom tray it shows up like regular mouse software. It used to have an area asking me if I want to shut the touchpad. Not anymore. As for the Synaptics Software if fails when I try to load it. Do you have a solution to this problem ? I do use a USB Mouse and never use the Touchpad.

Acer :: Debating Between Gateway MT6841 And 5630-6288
On the Gateway, it's a T2450 (2.0ghz) while the Acer has a T5550 (1.66ghz). I don't know which one is better, but I'm thinking the Gateway would be better (but bigger isn't always necessarily better?)

I was also wondering which one has better tech support and warranty also? This will be my first laptop and I hope it will last me for a long time. I guess I'm looking for a better bang for the buck.

Here are the links for both of them:

In bios, extended sharing is set to 766...and i can't change it, it's in blue.

My video memory is 128.

Is there a way i can change the sharing memory?... so i know if my ram is broken? It still under warranty for a month.

Also, my fan does a huge noise ... but only when i start it.

When a play games like cod4... it's heating but everything is fine, any isues? maybe a bearing? Should I change my fan? cleaning it up does nothing.

Acer :: 6930G WMP Playback
I'm having some minor problems with playback in Windows Media Player. The problem is that when I try and skip forward in a short video clip (.wmv), say 5mins, I can only hear audio and the screen stays blank. And in a longer video, 90mins, when I try to skip forward the video crashes completely and I recieve an error message saying "WMP encountered a problem playing the file". Web Help takes me here. I've followed instructions there but the problem still persists. However, If I leave videos to play without skipping forward, it plays perfectly.

I don't know if this is a problem with drivers or WMP itself. Or if its actually to do with the power of my machine itself. Anybody any ideas how to fix this? Specs are detailed in the signature below.

Acer :: Win7 Won't Install On Vista Laptop 5630 Black Screen With Cursor
our laptop keeps throwing a flakey when trying to install Win7 Ultimate over the current crappy Vista OS.

Laptop passed the compatibility checker no probs & has all the updates installed, but every time we try, we get either

1. windows 7 install failure message then black screen with cursor

or

2. straight to black screen with cursor.

This is even after changing to the low res setting that is mentioned so often when googling the issue.

I've looked on the Acer site, but it says if I got it from pc world I should take it up with them?

Anyone here have any advice to get it to work, or should we just smash the laptop off a wall?

Dell :: Very Noisy Latitude E6500
I just bought a latitude E6500 (intel 8600 - 2.4 GH, 3GB RAM, Samsung HDD 200 GB 7200; Vista Business) from an ebay resaler here in UK. From a one day experience I can tell that is is a beautifull machine but it is VERY NOSY all the time no matter what i do - it is like this from the time it gets turned on and stays noisy the whole time.When I put it next to my old Latitude D520 it is almost like a desktop noise. I am not sure if it is only the fan because there's no air flow coming from the radiators neither from the side one nor the vent on the bottom. I thought that there can be somehow that the fan is not working but it turned and blew very hot air for a vew seconds when i updated the BIOS. The noise is mixed with some high friquensy noises coming from where the wents and the proc is. I am confused if it is a hardware issue or it can be fixed somehow ... It comes with a 3 years warranty but i wonder if i should use the 7 day return policy and return it to the seller; which will be pityy because the machine is really beautiful..
