Acer Aspire 571pg :: FPS Drops On Games - Overheating?

Dec 2, 2014

Recently i buyed a laptop (Acer Aspire 571 pg) this laptop is very good for browsing and watching videos, etc... I'm happy that it can handle those things perfectly But i have a big issue when i try to play some games.For example GTA IV. I start the game normally and after a couple of minutes the game stutters/ drops fps constantly. I mean... It runs well in the first 4-5 minutes, then it starts to run slow for a couple of seconds and then goes back to run normally for another couple of seconds, and then again the game runs slow, and this keeps going and going as long as i play.

Specs: [URL]... HDD: 1tbO.s: Windows 8.1 [It was originally Windows 8, but i updated the Os for free] (Maybe this was the problem?)RAM: 8gbVideo [1]: Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000Video [2]: Dedicated Nvidia 710m [1gb] ddr3Processor: Intel i7 3537U 2.0ghz [2.5ghz in turbo]

So I really don't know what to do, this fps drops are really annoying. I've tried:

-Installing new video drivers [They're up to date]
-Installing new audio drivers [They're up to date too]
-Changing battery settings, doesn't make much difference in balanced mode or high performance
-Low the settings and resolution of the game [This keeps happening even on the lowest settings, it stutters/ it still gives me a fps drop]
-Defrag my hdd [Nothing changes]
-Updated my bios [The problem still persist]
-Turning off vertical sync and other various settings on the Nvidia control panel.

The thing is that i used Nvidia inspector just to check the gpu temperature and i notice that when the temperature reaches 60 to 70 celcius degrees the game starts to run slowly and stutter. I've this cooler connected to my lap: [URL] ... I've the same pad just in color black.But even with that thing connected the temperature still goes up. Maybe i need a better cooling pad? What should i do to get the fps stable?

Acer Aspire V3-551G :: Fan Extremely Loud - Overheating When Run Games Or Ubuntu

Jan 19, 2015

I have the Acer Aspire V3-551G (specifically the V3-551G-8454 model) and since I got it the laptop has had some overheating issues when I run games or Ubuntu. My solution to that was just to stop running games and Ubuntu, and besides that it's worked pretty well besides Explorer deciding to crash randomly (it doesn't happen too often though).
However, I've had the laptop for a while now and and not too long ago I noticed the fan would rarely become extremely loud. As the weeks went by, the sound became more frequent, especially if I moved the laptop even just a little while it was on, so I stopped moving the laptop. But now, even with the laptop sitting still on a table, there is about a 40%-50% chance that it will have an extremely loud fan when I start it.
What's weird is that sometimes I noticed the fan is too quiet too. When it does this I assume that the fan is actually off which shouldn't be happening because the laptop gets super hot. Sometimes after a while of silence the loud noise come up too, which is nice because now the fan is on, but is also not good because of the volume of the noise.
I'm pretty sure problem is coming from the GPU (or whatever the big fan on the left underside of the laptop is). I also suspect the fan had actually been the culprit of the overheating (which consequently caused Explorer to crash sometimes).

Acer Aspire 5742g :: Overheating When Playing Games - Instantly Shuts Down

Feb 3, 2015

I have some problems with my 3 and an half year old laptop. When I play games on it, it get so warm that it instantly shuts down. Normally it's around 100 degrees but it sometimes goes up to 103 - 104. I also have an extra cooler, 200 x 200 x 20mm, 850 RPM which doesn't seem to work that much.  My computer usually turns off 2 -3 times a day and that is really annoying and I don't want to damage my computer.....

HP/Compaq :: FPS In Games Always Drops Then Comes Back Up And Then Drops Again

Apr 26, 2009

Has anyone had issues with their DV5 with a Nvidia 9600mGT ? and FPS issues? I am playing DoDS, and for the last while (since I had my DV5 repaired by HP) My FPS in games always drops then comes back up and then drops again. I have installed many drivers with a clean driver install. (Used driver sweeper) I have even went as far as completing a whole system recovery again, to still run into these issues. It has become so bad, It ruins all gaming for me. Also, I think i have notice big CPU spikes, which might be causing issues... the specs are in my sig,.

Acer Aspire E1-570G :: Wireless Connection Randomly Drops On System

Oct 27, 2014

I bought my Acer Aspire E1-57G 2 months ago. U put win7 64bit on him and installed som drivers. All worked fine for some time. 1 week ago my internet slowed down randomly, and only on this notebook. 

I googeld a little bit and i decided to go for win 8.1 and original drivers. I installed everything but the problem with WLAN adapter was still there. If i started loading a web page sometimes it loads completely with no problems and everything is fine for some time (5 min) then pages start to loading slow or not at all. And like that all the time.

When I download something it ether downloads "fast" like 500 - 800 kbps or not at all 0kbps. On other notebooks wireless connection is ok, and at the same time when thisone is slow others do well. Win update is not slowing connection (OFF), firewall is ok, power management set  to be max for wlan adapter. I tried every solution that i found on the internet.
So what is the problem (is it WLAN adapter) and how to fix it?

Acer Aspire V3-572-56T3 :: Wireless Connection Drops After 10-20 Seconds Running Windows 8.1

Jan 21, 2015

I'm having major problems with connecting to the wireless network in the office. It sees the network, allows me to enter the security credentials, then connects (with confimed internet connectivity) but drops out after 10-20 seconds. I have tried the wireless network at a friend's house which worked ok without any interruptions, so it is definitely nothing wrong with the hardware. I'm using a brand new Acer Aspire V3-572-56T3 on Windows 8.1, with all the latest drivers/patches loaded and have tried fiddling with many of the advanced settings for the network adapter to no avail. I logged on to the router to ensure all settings, encryption standards, channels etc. were matching but the problem keeps persisting. This has been ongoing for two days now and is driving me insane as I really need to have wi-fi working in the office. Plugging an ethernet cable straight into the router works fine but it's not the ideal solution (and is posing an OH&S hazard as it is laying on the floor).
FYI I have run diagnostics several times & the one thing that stood out was this:
Diagnostics Information (Wireless Connectivity)Association status: Fail 0x00038002Association reason code: 0x00000002
Result of diagnosis: Problem foundIssue referred to: RNWF MSM Helper ClassRoot cause: Windows could not connect to "ERICSSON"You can try to connect again.
Result of diagnosis: Problem found

Acer :: Aspire 5739G Will Not Run Games

Dec 15, 2009

my Aspire 5739G will not run games.

I updated it to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using the disk Acer sent me about a month ago, but never checked to see if any games work until today. Stupid, I know. I put in the CD, the game starts to load up and then it goes to a black screen. It always did this when I had Vista too, but it usually came back on and the game was loaded up. Its stuck there then and I'm forced to hold down the power button and restart the computer.

I updated the driver for the Nvidia GeForce GT 130M to its latest (mainly because I have no clue what to do and thought to myself "yeah, that sounds like something that might be wrong with it"), but no change.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G- Overheating

Jun 23, 2009

I believe that my Acer Aspire 5920G was getting too hot, so I checked the temps:

CPU: 81C
GPU: 73C
HDD: 55C

I'm afraid those temperatures are too high. I don't understand why this happens! I don't play games that much now, I have cleaned the laptop's fans recently and I have the air-conditioner on all the day to keep the room with the laptop cool.

What can I do to decrease temps? I don't want to spend money, because I'm having problems with that laptop and my 8600M GS might die soon...

Acer :: (Aspire AS5755g) Games Load Very Slow

Feb 7, 2015

So I reinstalled my windows on my laptop, a few months ago and after that I noticed that my games load very slow.(All games).
One example is Dota 2, it takes about 4 mins to load to the main menu and then I have to start an offline bot match in order to load the map which also takes ~5 minutes. I didn't had this problem before reinstalling the windows and I really don't know what can be the problem...sure I installed all my drivers but not sure if they were good since you get tons of drivers for things your laptop doesn't even have

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Overheating Then Shutting Down

Dec 29, 2008

I think that it is an overheating problem considering my laptop (ONLY recently) seems to be getting very hot, to the point it needs to shut down. But this is the strange thing:

I had Windows Vista installed on this laptop (Acer Aspire 5100) earlier, and my battery almost never heated up to the point it needed to shut down, or even heat up to an extreme level.... But now that I have downgraded to Windows XP SP2, it seems to shut down MUCH more often. But I did find one thing of concern. Around the same time my laptop started shutting down, I installed an application called 'Game Speed Changer' and that whenever I had used it, it slowed my computer down immensely, and then when I went to close it, the BSOD would appear. Every time.

Acer :: Aspire 7720-6395 - Overheating

Jan 29, 2009

I purchased my Acer in Dec of 2007. It's worked great except it's overheating problem (got a fan, no more problem). Last month it started intermitently not booting properly, and not coming out of sleep. I "fixed" the sleep problem by telling Vista not to put it to sleep any more. I typically shut it down when I'm finished with it so sleep wasn't an issue for me.

To ellaborate on the booting problem. If I attempt to boot it, the display turns on, and power button turns green, but neither the fan, nor Drive turn on, nor do any of the USB ports get power (I know this because I have an illuminated keyboard, which doesn't illuminate when this problem is occuring). I've waited for as long as an hour and it will never boot. If I hold down the power button for 4 seconds, it turns off. And if I boot it again it boots up properly. Doesn't matter how many times I reboot it after it always comes back up. I've never tested how much time passes before I can't boot it. I also tryed putting it in hibernation manually, that worked twice, the last time it wouldn't wake and had to be rebooted. I've done a check disk on it but all seems fine.

Acer :: Aspire 5520 Shutting Down. NOT Overheating

Mar 11, 2010

I'm in the repair field and I've got a customer's Aspire 5520 that was brought in for overheating. The machine had gone to Iraq, and the customer has indoor yes, the fins on the heat pipe were very clogged. Got it all cleaned out, and the machine is still shutting itself off after between 10 minutes and 30 seconds of use.

Now, the machine isn't overheating. SpeedFan and a few other CPU temp utilities are showing the CPU to be around 45*c when the machine is randomly shutting down. 45c is not what I'd consider hot for a Turion x2.

It's not a RAM issue, I've replaced the CPU and am getting the same symptoms.

Acer :: Aspire 5940G- Old Battery Death- CPU Overheat During Games

Jan 2, 2010

my Aspire 6920G.

So far got many issues with it like: a year-old battery death, CPU overheat during games, and driver issues with windows seven.
I am considering of buying a new laptop, the 5940G, which has these specs -

Display 15.6" (1366 x 768) / Intel Core i7-720QM (1.6 GHz) / RAM 4 GB / HDD 500 GB / ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 / Blu-ray / Wi-Fi / Buletooth / web-camera / Windows 7 Home Premium / 3 kg. $1939,00 (normal price as for Ukraine)

You can read a detailed review with pics over here [url]

What makes me think about this lap, is the Acer brand. So far i can say, that the batteries acer makes are crap, because the 6920G isn't the first laptop i experience problems with (especially the battery problem)

Acer :: Overheating Display Aspire 6930g(6049)

Jun 18, 2009

Bought an acer aspire 6930g(6049) couple of months back.

im happy with the performance & all that, but one thing that really bothers me is the lower center part of the display (to be exact, rite on the acer logo) gets extremely hot.

now i've heard that some samsung lcds have overheating problems & this particular acer's display is a samsung-made. so i was wondering if its normal for these acers to get the display heated or is there something wrong with my piece?

Acer :: 9500M GS Aspire 8920/6920 Games Minimizing On Start

Nov 11, 2008

I have a curious issue that has begun to pop up, I believe after I installed a few drivers from laptopvideo2go. Long story short I tried to reset back to the old Acer drivers and I spent a few hours trying to get my video to turn back on.

But here's the actual problem - some games will randomly minimize on startup and then not allow me to switch to them.

I first noticed this with Frets on Fire, where I would boot it up, it would look like it would work and then stay minimized for a while. Click on it in the taskbar and it would either pretend to go to the game or just sit there, moving my mouse to the top left corner. Alt-Tab, similar, sometimes works sometimes doesn't. If I do Switch To in task manager, it works a bit more often but sometimes takes a few times.

I've now noticed this with COD4, Fallout 3, and Trackmania Nations. Fallout 3 causes the game to crash. I've tried stopping as many open programs/processes as possible and it sometimes fixes it, sometimes doesn't.

If it isn't clear, I have an Acer Aspire 8920G with a 9500M GS. I'm currently using the relatively stock 7.15.1(1.7561) drivers.

Acer Aspire V3 772G :: Overheating - Machine Started To Run Slowly

Jan 1, 2015

My Acer Aspire V3 772G that I purchased about 18 months ago is starting to behave quite strangely.
The machine has started to run more and more slowly. I have up to date Norton anti-virus, plenty of room on the hard drive, defragment the main drive and try to keep all software up to date.
The other, potentially related issue, I have is overheating. When I run certain online games the left side of the laptop get very hot and I have checked the temperature which get to about 100 degrees C and then the machine shuts down without any warning. I am already using a stand with a fan.
The only thing that I can think of that might be causing this is out of date drivers. When I check from the Device manager it says that all the drivers are up to date and this is confirmed when I look on the Acer site. However, when I go to the Intel site it says that there are more up to date drivers for the integrated graphics card. Should I ignore Acer's information and install the new driver?

Acer Aspire V3-551 :: Overheating When Playing Some Game And Laptop Is Plugged In

I have an Acer Aspire V3-551 which is having an overheating problem. However, it only overheats when I am playing some game and the laptop is plugged in. It will not over heat when the computer is on battery only. It shouldn't be the power cord because I have bought a new one since the problem started. Also, the heating seems to be coming from where the fan is.

Acer Aspire 772G-9829 :: Overheating And Hard Crash

Feb 18, 2015

I purchased my Acer Aspire 7726-9829 in August 2013 and haven't had any problems at all until a week and a half ago.  When running games, it appears my computer is heating up and experiencing a hard crash. (This only happens when running games.  Browsing the web or watching movies doesn't cause the problem.)
At first I thought it might be the power settings, so I picked up a new power supply and set my computer to 'high performance'. (Which fixed minor clipping issues.  The graphics now run perfectly for about five to ten minutes before the computer crashes.)

Acer :: Aspire 7520 - Cannot Play Anymore New Games Or Even Watch Any Movies On My Laptop

Jun 25, 2009

I have a big problem with my acer 7520. The problem is that i cannot play anymore new games or even watch any movies on my laptop. I got the laptop about a year and a half ago and everything worked great. I could watch movies even when other applications were open. I could play pretty demanding games on it that ran very well. And now about 3 months ago all that luxury stopped and i cant do any of those things anymore. Even an old game like rome total war runs at 9 fps or lower on the main map, i didnt even bother going into battle. Movies stutter and skip frames, and sometimes even get stuck on the same frame with the sound still going as if everything is fine.

My specs are:

AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-56 (2 CPUs), ~1.8GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M

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.
