Acer :: Aspire 5672 Heatsink/fan

Jan 22, 2009

My fan on my Aspire 5672 recently failed and I need to get me another one. I've looked all over these forums and all the links that I have found with any help were out of stock.

I was wondering if someone can point me in the right direction of where to buy one, as I'm really desperate at this point. (I even bought one from a website and they failed to inform me that it's out of stock even tho it was in stock on their site.... They still haven't given me the refund yet!)

I've contacted Acer Canada and they told me part is discontinued cause the laptop is out of warranty and they sent me to a place which was also out of stock.

Acer :: Aspire 5672 + Win 7

May 14, 2009

This is just my attempt to put Windows 7 on my Aspire 5672.

I know its an older model now, heck it came out in 2006 before even Vista. So I've kept it on Win XP for quite a while, hoping Vista drivers would be worked on. Now that I'm cleaning out all the junk, I figure might as well reformat. Sadly Acer doesn't provide Vista drivers for this model.

Might as well try Windows 7 RC and try finally moving to 64-bit.

Windows 7 installs smoothly, no fuss. Getting drivers is now the issue.

If I can get the minimal devices to work with the same usage as I had under XP, I'll stick with Win 7.

- Video: this uses the Mobility Radeon x1600. Sadly ATI deliberately does not support it through their Catalyst drivers. So have to use the Mobility Modder.
Sadly it doesn't seem to work for the latest Catalyst versions

Ultimately I went with DNA-ATI drivers which are pre-modded.
9.4 removes support for everything but their HD 2000 and higher series.
9.3 causes a WDM crash
9.2 seems to work okay
[url]

One thing now is that the driver is unsigned and won't load. Using the Driver Signature Override tool doesn't seem to work, nor the test mode bcdedit switch...........

Acer :: Aspire 5584 Heatsink

Mar 19, 2009

on this 2 heatsink above, different would be the heatpipe near the end. but the end part heatsink on my laptop mainboard below is the nvidia graphics.

so would the "missing" heatpipe causes big difference in temperature? (this 2 heatsink is stated on the web that it is compatible for my model)
when i was playing game, graphics temp could hit 80 to 90. i'm very scare tat the graphics would up lorry again.:mad: current heatsink is the 1st pic which heatpipe is extend to the end.

i hav it disassembled(thanks to Andy for the youtube vid).
this is the heatsink after i hav send it for repair.(i knw they change the whole board). but there hav several layer of copper pad.

now wat shld i do to bring down the temp? i hav jus apply thermal grease to it. but the temp no difference.

Acer :: Aspire 5672 WLMi Drivers

Jan 5, 2009

I'm trying to find the correct drivers for the above laptop. I found this thread How To's: Acer Aspire 5672 , but it seems some of the links no longer work.

This system had XP Home originally and the HDD died. I installed a new HDD and want to install XP Pro, have disk, and do away with all the Acer stuff.

I've already performed a clean install once before of XP Pro, but wasn't able to find the correct drivers for several pieces of hardware. I'm in the USA. Is there even an Acer USA? I can't seem to find the drivers at Acer.

I have my original backup disk that I created using Acer erecovery and an XP pro install disk.

Acer :: Aspire 5672 Orbicam And USB Ports Out

Jun 16, 2009

I'm running an Acer Aspire 5672 WLMI. Recently i upgraded my RAM and hard drive, obviously having to reinstall the OS and driver's etc. Since i made the change, i haven't been able to get the Orbicam or usb ports on the left side of my computer to work.

Luckily there are still 2 ports on the right side that work fine, and the entire rest of the computer is great, but i'd like these things to work (especially the camera). I've re-installed everything 3 times at this point with no luck. The drivers are installed and in programs the camera is listed as an optional webcam. The first time i reformatted i got and error message that said camera is currently in use and cannot be accessed. It would ding on and off repeatedly until i rebooted the computer. Currently what the camera does is basically nothing. It's detected, but when pulled up in a program (such as gmail or acer software) it's simply black. I am wondering if i maybe jostled something inside and it's disconnected or if this is a software issue.

Acer :: ASpire 5672 WLMI Died Cause: Unknown

Dec 11, 2008

Right down to the matter at hand. Yesterday I was working on my laptop, plugged in, but charging, about 40%, when all of a sudden it shuts down. I wasnt doing anything overly stressful, CPU's were each at about 50% load tops (Ubuntu 8.10, mysql, apache2, rythmbox, firefox, opera, some file browsers, pidgin).

My initial thought was that the power supply adapter had gone - thus it was draining whilst i worked and i hadnt noticed (since the connector is a little worn). I noticed that the little green light was blinking rapidly on it. However when I unplugged it from the laptop, it returned to its static green state.

I went to remove the HDD today as i had to get my work from it, so I thought I would try to start it up anyway. Nothing. Whilst removing the HDD i noticed an occasional clicking (3 little consecutive clicks to be precise, as if it were trying to start but just couldnt. This happened a few times, until I removed the battery, then it stopped. I can replicate this by turning it on and it will keep happening until I remove the battery.

Also I have gone inside, attempted to clean any dust off and cleaned the battery contacts, so it is unlikely to be anything like that.

I know its an old laptop these days and sometimes these things die, but this thing has been my baby. I learnt to code on this thing, I learnt Linux on this thing and I'm not giving it up without a fight.

Acer :: Fixed Aspire 5672 Overheating Problem & Sudden Power-off

Nov 27, 2008

Over the past few months I noticed my laptop was super hot to touch and the fan was working overtime. I put this down to the additional memory and bluetooth device I installed 6 months ago.

The laptop began powering off without warning. It would just die.
I took out the memory and turned off the bluetooth and started disabling services I did not need in Windows XP.

This seemed to work for a short time. I noticed the fan going full speed whenever I used GFX intensive games. After power-off in the middle of a battle in Civ IV I decided enough.

Searched on-line and found some interesting notebook tools that reported the temperature of the CPU. Yep it was super hot. It appeared to be operating about 86oC. The system will power off once the CPU reach a critical threshold.

I figured the fan effectiveness must be reduced. I opened up the 5672 and took a look at the fan. Sure enough the dust was like looking into my vacuum cleaner.

I spent about an hour with a small screw driver, tweezers, some cotton swabs (q-tips) and alcohol based cleaner bulling balls of fluff out of the fan enclosure.

After I got all the clog out the CPU now operates a comfortable 55oC. No super fan blowing or sudden-power off.

Acer :: Upgrade Question For Aspire 5672 AWLMI (5670 Series) Regarding RAM And HD

Oct 7, 2008

I own an Acer Aspire 5672AWLMI (5670 series) Inter Core duo 1,7, 2GB Ram,
Ati Mobility Radeon x1600, 120GB SATA HD @ 5400rpm.

I am thinking of making 2 upgrades after 2 years of great functionality (despite the fact that it rises high temperatures and i mostly use it on Thermaltake's TaiChi cooler)

1)Upgrade exesting HD to

Hitachi Deskstar 500 GB Internal SATA Hard Drive
7200 RPM, 16 MB Buffer - Serial ATA 3.0 Gbps

2) Upgrade RAM to 3 or 4GB

The reason i am writing is to ask if this Hard drive is compatible with my mobo or should i try to update BIOS or is not compatible at all.

What is the best option for RAM - modules, vendors etc

Acer :: 5672 Laptop Fan

Aug 8, 2007

I've been getting this weird, on and off, random, buzzing/almost scraping noise from the fan of my Acer 5672 laptop. It spins really loudly, I'm assuming the ball bearings are going bad or something's wrong. Is there any store or place I can check to buy a replacement? I know it's a Sunon brand fan/heatsink, but I've been searching around endlessly for a place to buy a replacement.

Acer :: Powerless- 5672

Mar 12, 2008

I have an Aspire 5672 and had it plug into an outlet when the circuit breaker went of in the house and when I turned it back on the Laptop there was nothing (no power light or charging with or without the battery). I am sure that I messed up something, but I am not sure how bad it is. I am comfortable digging into the workings and took it apart once already just to see if it might be a bad connection or if the had some sort of inline fuse.

Acer :: 5672 Latest Bios

Sep 14, 2009

I found a BIOS v.3239 on the Acer.com (Pan America) driver website. However I don't know if it's for Vista or still XP, the website doesn't specify like the acer europe site did, however that BIOS version is 3234.

So, does anyone know about the Panam acer site with the BIOS v.3239 for vista (or windows7)?

And no I don't need my BIOS updated from the 3234 version, just curious.

Acer :: My 5672 Died On Me After 2 Years

Sep 29, 2008

I bought an Acer 5672 WLMI a little over 2 years ago. I thought the Acer offered good value for the money. The specs were Intel Core Duo processor T2300, 2GB RAm, X1400 ATI Video card, 120gb HDD, 15.4" screen, winXp Pro -cost of the system was $1800 + tax (Canadian dollars).

The 5672 always ran hot. It was almost hard to keep it on my lap it sometimes got so hot. I was not even gaming. I was just doing standard web browsing/word processing. The bottom of the latop got so hot that is basically disintegrated most of the Microsoft WinXP Certification sticker. I pulled the bottom cover off and there was nothing obstructing the CPU Fan. I also would intermittently get a green/blue? line about 3-4 inches wide down the middle of the screen. This green/blue line was intermittent. Generally, the screen problem and the heat problem became worse as the 5672 became older.

After 15 months the hard drive failed. I put in a new 160gb HDD. Acer never gave me the original winXP CD and the Win XP Certification Sticker had burned itself off. I reinstalled another copy of winXP Pro that I had. The laptop ran ok for a bit, but then the wireless starting acting up...I would get dropped wireless connections and sometimes it could not detect wireless signals that I knew were there. I stopped using the wireless completely.
After about 18 months the CPU fan started to make an intermittent noise. At approx 2 years, the CPU fan failed completely. I thought I could replace the CPU fan, but realized the CPU was an intergrated unit with cooling tubes and cooled the CPU chip in addition to some other chips on the motherboard. I checked the Acer web site and did not see this part listed (not many parts were listed). I checked on ebay saw a few posting for a new fan/cooling unit -cost was approx $170. I debated whether or not I wanted to spend $200 and time fixing a 2 year laptop...that always ran hot and had some potential screen issues.

For a few days I ran the latop with no CPU fan and used an external fan to try and keep everything cool. I had motherboard monitor and could see this was not working and temps were getting high. I was debating what to do, when the laptop just died. The screen displayed a bunch of funky colours and then it just died. I was able to power it up again, but a few minutes later it did the same thing (funky colours on the display and shutdown by itself). I tried rebooting and nothing..it was dead. I pulled the hard drive and checked that it was ok...............

Acer :: 5672 To Check Internal Speakers

Feb 3, 2009

My speakers stopped working after I dropped the laptop on the front edge (yes clever).

Curious thing is there is a red LED glowing from inside the ear phone socket that I never noticed before. It looks really cool. Anyways I get sound out of the ear phones but not the speaker.

I tried inserting and jiggling the ear phone jack to see if there speakers were somehow deactivated by means of the earphones. No luck.

My next step is to open up the laptop too see what I can find.

I'm wondering has anyone delved into a 5672 (or similar) that could guide me to what to expect.

Mainly I don't want to remove the cover if it means I bollox up the whole thing.

Acer :: Camera Causing BSOD 5672 WLMi

Apr 15, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5672WLMi laptop and it has a built-in OrbiCam, every once in a while I hear a sound as if I was plugging/unplugging an USB device, sometimes it does that twice and then stops but there's times, like a few mins ago, that it goes crazy and I get a Blue Screen.

The message I get is "File lv321.sys has caused an error. Page fault in non paged area" and makes me restart.

After I do that, Microsoft Error Reporting tells me that I should update the drivers although I already did that or to unplug the camera, which is impossible since it's built in.

I have searched on Google but couldn't find much information except perhaps the wires that connect the camera might be loose/damaged and that's what causing it.

I have disabled it on the Device manager but it won't solve anything.

Is there a way to completely disable the camera port?

What can I do to fix it?

The laptop is almost 2 years old and is not under warranty.

Acer :: 5672 Memory Upgrade With Benchmark Results (667MHz CL4 RAM)

Oct 21, 2008

One of the things that truly bugged me about this laptop was that it only shipped with 533MHz RAM (PC2-4200) when the hardware supported 667MHz (PC2-5300). When I started looking to upgrade I was bugged again that the 667MHz memory I was finding had a CAS Latency of 5 where the 533MHz ran at CL4. Then I finally located some 667MHz CL4 memory and decided to pull the trigger.

I am happy with the purchase and would recommend the upgrade to anyone with this laptop. I can't say if I used the best memory benchmarking program, but at the very least I can publish my results using SiSoftware Sandra Lite:
1) Memory Bandwidth test (HIGHER is better)
2) Memory Latency test (LOWER is better for both)
3) Cache & Memory test (HIGHER is better for Combined, LOWER is better for Speed factor)

PC4200 CL4 2x1GB (Original memory)
1) Memory bandwidth 3524 MB/s
2) Memory latency 138 ns, Speed factor 66.0
3) Cache & memory Combined index 9375 MB/s, Speed factor 14.2

PC5300 CL5 2x1GB (borrowed from a friend during the upgrade for reference)
1) Memory bandwidth 3588 MB/s
2) Memory latency 122 ns, Speed factor 63.7
3) Cache & memory Combined index 9645 MB/s, Speed factor 13.3

PC5300 CL4 2x1GB
1) Memory Bandwidth: 3663 MB/s
2) Memory Latency: 114 ns, Speed factor 55.2
3) Cache & Memory: Combined index 9910 MB/s, Speed factor 12.6.......

Dell :: Heatsink Replacement...

Feb 9, 2009

Have finally got Dell to agree to replace my motherboard (my 3rd in 18 months), but they say I also need a new heatsink/fan to fix my overheating GPU problems (100 degrees + under load).

They are doing the motherboard under warranty, but refusing to pay for the heatsink. According to them, the two issues are not connected...

My question is, is there any point having the heatsink replaced if it's just going to be the same defective component?

HP/Compaq :: Heatsink For DV9000

Sep 14, 2009

i just took apart my laptop yesterday to change my cpu on it. i was running T7500 and changed it to T8300 and man.... that T8300 is so cool. with AS5 my idle temps are down to 25-27*C thats a HUGE jump from my old T7500 which was a mini baking oven.

but anyways.... it took me 3 hours to take everything apart watching videos videos on hp.com but onc ei took it apart, i looked at the HSF and man its one of the weakest hsf i've seen. the only part thats copper is just a tiny square base thats on top of cpu. everything else is crap. and there were some pads on the end of the hsf to i guess cool the little things on the side. (forgot what they were called) i wanted to apply the AS5 to all the places that the pads were touching, but that part of the HFS was not copper. i'm not sure what it was.

i'm sure everyone that ever replaced cpu on the DV9000 had taken the whole laptop apart... have you guys ever thought about replacing the HSF with an aftermarket HSF thats better than the stock? i tried searching and found none that were any better than the stock. none of them are all copper.

and i did not want to put AS5 on the other things that has that white/beige pad on, since the bottom of the HSF looked weak and i did not want to fry the chips/what ever the pads were supposed to cool... can you guys help me find a better HSF for the laptop? or that stock crappy hsf is the best/only thing for me?

Dell :: Vostro 1400 -- New Heatsink

Feb 18, 2010

I should have said microprocessing cooling unit, not heatsink!

My Dell Vostro 1400 laptop has been running hotter with age (it's two years old). About 5 minutes after startup the core temp hits 50-60C, the fan kicks in, the core goes down to 30C, the fan kicks off. This cycle occurs about every 5 minutes or so. I've cleaned the fan area thoroughly and am using i8kfanGUI. I'm wondering if replacing the microprocessing cooling unit will help keep the core temp down. They're pretty cheap, about 15 on eBay. Here's what I'm looking at:

What do you guys think? Will a new microprocessing cooling unit make a significant difference in keeping down my core temp?

Dell :: Heatsink Mod M1330 XPS By BlackRussian

Jun 24, 2009

Above the two types of cooling units with standard heatsinks of the M1330 XPS

M1330 XPS Heatsink Mod by BlackRussian.

This mod is to provide a better cooling system on my Dell M1330 XPS laptops which already has a cooper plate on video chip.
The main mod is concentrated around the nVidia video chip, the CPU will be done at a later date for all you overclockers out there!

3x Aluminum Heatsink. I use a heatsink taken from an old desktop PC motherboard and cut/file to size.(Chipset or Video card)
1x L 38mm x H 6mm x D 11mm for the bigger heatsink and 1x L 38mm x H 6mm x D 8mm for smaller heatsink.
1x Thermal paste (AS5 etc to your fancy)
1x Thermal adhesive kit (Aritic SilverThermal adhesive) Warning! See foot note below.
1x Copper plate.
Cleaning agents (Pure alcohol or something like Aceton) , cotton face wipe..
1x Junior hacksaw
Set of flat files
Clean work area.
Oven. (Preheat on high temp 5mins before placing cooling unit inside oven)
Set of screwdrivers size #0 and #00 Philips or Pozidriv
Optional tools. 2 mini G clamps

Thermal adhesive Do not use this product on your CPU or Video chip as it will bond to it and you will not be able to remove the thermal adhesive once it set's on the chips without damaging the chips.

Measurements had been taken with the cooling unit still in place and allowing enough space from Ram cards & base plate inner edge for removing the final cooling unit. See
All done and back in my M1330 XPS laptop photo.
Once you have your heatsinks cut/filed and cleaned to the right size maximum height 7mm (5.5mm should be used to be on the safe side otherwise final adjustment with a flat file will correct any over high problem) we need to open up our laptop.

Before under going any services to your laptop make sure that you ground yourself or be very careful of static change while workings on your Laptop refer to your handbook or service manual.....................
