I've an Aspire 5720-602G16Mi which has no installed bluetooth module, but has the button fitted in the keyboard (comes up with "NO BLUETOOTH DEVICE"). I've seen all the threads on this and obtained the correct module (and driver if required) and know where on the motherboard to fit it - near the front of the laptop - probably socket BT1, so here's the problem!
I can't get the bottom off the case to access the right spot! :-(
I've taken out the battery, removed the 2 access plates - (I know how to remove the keyboard and the hard drive if neccessary) -BUT even when I've then taken out ALL of the visible screws I can't get the bottom of the case off.
AM I MISSING SOMETHING?
I realise there are "clips" all round the base but I also know that it's a fragile plastic so I don't want to force anything.
A step by step guide or a link to an existing one would be useful ( there may be one here but I can't find it)
i would like to know the significance of the second set of numbers on this computer....acer aspire 5720-4230. what is the 4230? im thinking of getting this laptop for my college kid. ive found some pretty low priced ones. im more concerned with dependability than looks or speed.
here are the specs on it:

I have aspire 5720 bought in 2007. It stopped suddenly. On pressing power button start up light comes on which stays about 5 sec and switches off. Tried with and without battery but same. Fan starts and in a se laptop is off. I have removed HDD and put it back and same to ram. Also did power reset by holding on power button for a minute without battery plugged in but no luck.
whether the AC power adaptor itself should show an LED light on while it is plugged into the power (and not just when it is charging/connected to the laptop too)?
My Dad has come over here on holiday with an Acer Aspire 5720 Model ICL50. It had been working fine, however this morning we started getting the low battery warning sound, despite the power cable being plugged in. We have taken plugs in and out, taken the battery out etc, but the laptop will show no sign of receiving more power via the adaptor.
I figure its either one of two things - either the adaptor has died, or there is an issue with the power connector in the back of the laptop itself, perhaps it got knocked and damaged internally or something.
I just did a 'restore to factory default' on my Acer Travelmate 5720-6754 laptop by pressing ALT+F10 during the bootup to get to the eRecovery and restored the computer to factory default.
There is a partition that is 30gb + 30gb which makes both pretty darn small. Is there a way I can merge these two hard drives? My only fear is that there are a bunch of folders on the secondary (acerdata d drive with names like 80bbadfe5760 and in these folders are stuff like amd64, malicious software removal from microsoft, and even a hidden folder called msdownld.tmp.
Also, from what I understand the eRecovery files themselves are on a hidden partition...is that 'hidden partition' this 'acerdata' drive? If i somehow remove the partition, where do the files on this second drive go? If i perform an eRecovery again, will it reform the partition, or will it not even be able to perform a recovery due to the missing files?
Firstly I know very little on thsi kind of stuff so please excuse my lack of knowledge.
I've had my travelmate 5720 for about 4 months, and for as long as I have had it, it crashes when I play any kind of video. Not straight away, it may be after 2 minutes or after an hour. But if I'm playing a movie, its almost guaranteed to crash to a blue screen, and the system reboots. Its too random to try recreate the problem instantly, other than just playing a movie and...waiting.
I have a Dell 5720 and in the summer, its motherboard and keyboard got replaced due to short circuit problems. Since then, every time I press the Power button, the laptop starts to load correctly but suddenly turns off during the boot process. If I press the Power button on a second time, the laptop loads perfectly.
I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu installed and the booting process reaches the grub where I can select in which one I want to boot. I can even select something from the list, but then the laptop turns off (not because I select something, but I think because I have a few seconds before it shuts down). If I turn it on again, everything is fine. I can select anything from the grub's boot list and it won't turn off. It boots into any desired OS and works like there's no problem
I've just run hardware diagnostics and all tests passed.One of my friend said that it has a driver problem because the motherboard got replaced and this is why it's shuts down the first boot.
Another observation: if I do this 'twice turn-on' boot and use my laptop for a while and I turn it off and I turn it on again in a short time after the turn off, it boot correctly.
When I open the lid to the laptop and hit the power button, the 3 buttons on the top of the keyboard cycle through and the power comes on, but the only thing that happens next is the screen turns on with a slight brightness, but it doesn't load any further. It doesn't even load to the Dell logo. If I tap the power button again, all lights and monitor goes off with a beep noise.
I have taken the battery out, unplugged the power cord and held the power button for over 15 seconds. This did not do anything.
I have two identical Dell Inspiron17R 5720's with the same problem with the Quote Key. When pressed once, nothing appears on screen. Press again and both appear. Get the same result if shift key is used for double quotes.
The same results get transferred to an attached USB keyboard, so it must be something wrong internally, either in Bios or Windows 7 (SP1)'s setup of the Standard PS/2 Keyboard.
I would like to install a internal cdma/wimax ... EVDO Rev A. yadayada and would like to use Clear 4g network ...and since Intel card's are incompatible with the Studio XPS 1340 I have no choice but to use this ... don't like the usb modems
I know i can use the intesl caching stuff, but i dont want to!!
Intel® Smart Response Technology: This technology utilizes the speed advantage of SSD in caching where the frequently used information is stored on the SSD instead of the Hard drive.
Intel® Rapid Start Technology: This technology enables the system to boot back with-in seconds after getting into hibernation.
What i am looking to do is, put a 128GB mSATA SSD drive in the slot, fire windows into in and use this as my OS & APPS drive, (Drive C:), and then use the existing drive, the 1TB mechanical drive as the storage drive (Drive D:).
The dell site, say i can not use an MSATA SSD to boot with...i see no reason why!?
Also, i cant find the spec of the mSATA...dont know whether its SATA 3 or SATA 2.
The hard drive of my inspiron 17R 5720 got broken and all the info was lost with it (including the windows 8 image to restore) so i purchased a new HD, but obviously I cant restore the OS that came with my laptop,
How can I get the Restore Image again? can I download it from somewhere?
II bought my laptop 2 months ago and one day when I turn a message appears that says "Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try again When the unit is back to the operational temperature".And just let me choose 2 options to continue or enter the bios.I update the bios to the latest version and change my battery, nothing has solved my problem. when I unplug the AC adapter, the computer shuts down. Is a Dell inspiron 5720 with windows 8 64bits.
I let a family member borrow my laptop and it came back with cryptowall2.0 and another one (cant remember which one it was) because they had somehow disabled my antivirus (panda pro) and my anti-malware (malwarebytes). But i got the infections themselves removed and cleaned but my files are still all encrypted. No big deal, MOST of the important stuff was backed up online and on flash drives. Tried restoring to a previous point but didn't work. So now i can't access my admin account AT ALL. I can log into it but the screen stays black with just the pointer. I can log into the guest account.
But i can't do ANYTHING from there and put it that way on purpose. How do i fix this??? Will a factory restore fix the damage from the ransomware infections??? Is there ANY way to save my files? Well, i guess none of that matters if i can't get into the admin account first... This is the ONLY computer i have access to, i can use my smartphone for accessing information and whatnot but connecting drive to an external drive on a secondary computer is out of the question....
The Nvidia driver for my Inspiron 5720 does not recognize my card and won't install. It is the 630M.I did a clean format and set BIOS values to default. The latest BIOS is installed.The drive is from Dell's website.
