i recently bought the notebook, after a month it was fine nothing went wrong, then in the pass couple weeks i've notice that a "crackling" sound comes on when i play music, this also happens when my headphones are plugged in. Strangely enough the crackling sound only
happens when my charger is unplug, when i put the charger in, the crackling sound stops. Is there a way to fix this?
has anybody else had a crackling sound when playing sound example music/games. i always get it in my right speaker and how can i fix this i believe this is a software/hardware issue as whenever the sound goes off the crackling deaseses.
I recently received this acer laptop as a gift. Right from the first time I started it I noticed issues with the sound. With any audio that played there were crackling noises.The crackling got worse and worse so I Decided to restart the laptop and then the sound stopped working altogether.I tried reinstalling the Realtek HD audio drivers that came with the laptop but that didn't work and I still got a "No Audio Output Device is Installed" message in the bottom corner.
I tried reinstalling the drivers AGAIN, and the sound worked. All seemed well until I woke up the next day with no sound yet again.I then tried downloading new drivers from the realtek website, even these drivers didn't work. The only solution to the problem seemed to be basically uninstalling and reinstalling the realtek drivers until they worked, and even then, the sound would still crackle horrendously.After getting fed up with this issue I tried to refresh windows, and even this didn't work.I have tried everything I can think of .....
I bought an aspire 6530G about a month ago (Turion x-2 rm-72 2.1ghz, 4gb ram, 320gb hdd, Mobility radeon 3650, running vista 32 bit). Its currently running extremely slow and struggles to perform basic tasks my older lower spec xp laptop had no problems with, such as playing music from my external hdd. Startup seems to take an age also.
I wanna swap out my current hdd for a SSD. But problem is the HDD cage is sort of lock. It not like the usual HDD cage as there is 2 piece of metal slottin into the main case.. anyway to remove.. suspect cover by KB
I bought this laptop because it is able to play some games, but since a few months, it has some annoying performance issues.
In every 3D game, after a few minutes the fps rate suddenly breaks down to 4-5 fps for 20-25 seconds accompanied with an audible fan noise, then the frame rate returns back to normal. After another 2-5 minutes (depending on game), the same phenomenon happens, the frame rate breaks down for 20-25 seconds, then back to normal for a few minutes, and so on.
With the help of Ati Tray Tools, I monitored CPU and GPU activity and temperature, and it showed that every 2-5 mins, the GPU load dropped from 60-80% down to 10-30% for these few seconds. At the same time the CPU load increases (trying to pick up the slack?). The GPU temp seems to be the reason, as it steadily rises (to 65-72 degrees, depending on game), and when the frame rate breaks down it cools a few degrees and then slowly rises again.
I have had it serviced two times by Acer already, the first time they just reinstalled factory settings (great, what a help!), and the second time, they said its a faulty HDD and swapped it out. Nothing changed, though, and they havent touched the graphics card either.
I dont know what else to do, or if anyone else has had this problem, and how they explained it to Acer. The last time I attached detailed reports and game demos for them to reproduce the error, but it seems they didnt check it.
and here are some basics: Graphics Card is Ati Radeon HD 3470 X2 Hybrid Windows Vista Home Premium fully patched 3GB RAM, 320 GB HDD AMD Turion X2 CPU
Here is what didnt help: - Disabling Ati Crossfire - Disabling all but the most elemental Windows Services - Installing various graphics drivers (including non-certified "tweaked" drivers) - changing in-game resolutions or graphical effects (but notably the lag effect is largest at 60-80% GPU load - when it is 100%, for example in benchmarks, the GPU fan always spins at 100% and there is not the same lag effect) - blowing through the air vents to clean out dust
High CPU Usage despite nothing showing on Task Manager or Process Explorer.
I was asked to have a look at a relatively new Acer Aspire 6530g laptop recently that was beginning to become almost unusably slow all of a sudden. The system (which comes with 4gb of ram) literally can no longer run a couple of simple applications at the same time. Displaying typical behaviour of high CPU usage, ie taking a long time to respond, typed sentences seeming to pause and then jump to the end, video noticably jerky accompanied by a crackling through the speakers.
The system had a fresh re-installation of Vista done, which seemed to solve the problem briefly, reappearing again after a week or so, and then upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 in an attempt to solve the problem, again the symptoms appeared to stop after the upgrade (or weren't as evident) and returned yet again after only another week or so.
First thing i did was check task manager for something slowing the system. I suspected perhaps some malware or a trojan on the system.
This is where it gets weird. Nothing. If for instance theres just 1 browser window playing a flash game, it slows to a crawl. CPU shows 75-95% usage, yet nothing is seemingly using it. To go a little deeper I installed sysinternals process explorer to see a little deeper into what might be causing it. Again, nothing. Showing overall High CPU usage, but nothing appeared to be using all of the CPU..................
my computer produces this crackling noise and everything begins to slow down. it doesnt happens everytime but most of the time. like when im watching a video, the crackling noise would come and the video would slow down and the sound would go into a low slow motion sound ..
I'm trying to figure out why the sound crackles every so often in Vista with this laptop. Using the latest sound-card drivers (January 2007) from Dell. It doesn't happen all the time, and tends to do it most when there's hard drive activity.
I am in desperation currently with this problem. Let me explain my setup first. I have the Dell E1505, 2gb ram, ATI X1400 mobility, 1.66ghz duocore processor, about 2 years old.
I recently got fed up with the onboard sound as I have taken a hobby up in purchasing high fidelity headphones.
This led me to get a M-Audio Fast Track Pro which is an external sound card with a separate headphone amplifier.
I basically used this sound card as my sound card as opposed to the sigmatel audio that's in the computer.
Everything was great but i found out that everytime that I did anything graphics related on my computer (blow up an image, scroll down a webpage, minimize a window, etc) that there would be a crackle/static that comes from the sound.
It got reallllly annoying so I tried finding a solution but really could not.
Few days ago my laptop has this problem, whenever i use battery, meaning im not charging my laptop ..the speaker give crackling sound ..and i have to change sound format from 192000Hz to 96000Hz ..thats only work in balance mode and high performance, but when in power saver ..i have to change to 48000Hz ..it also happen when charging my laptop ...so what is the problem ? i rarely use my laptop speaker because i have external speaker ..but this is the first time it happen ...last week laptop speaker work perfectly ..why now?
anyway when watching videos on youtube with people playing games on the same laptop i found out that my laptop is slower than the ones other poeple have? i already tried to clean it with those air bottles but my laptop is still slower than the ones on youtube is there anyway to make my laptop faste without overclocking it because i dont wanna loose my warranty. another question i have is because of changing hardware i read some hreads about changing cpus most people recommended a core 2 duo t9300 but would it be a bis increase in my cause? when looking on alternate i saw that they have a t9600 for the same price so i wondered whether i could use that one as welll even though it has a fsb of 1066 instead of my 800 that im using right now another one i saw was the p8600 (its said penryn-3m i dont know what that means) but it also has a fsb of 1066
another thing is changing the graphic card first i have a question where i can buy graphic cards for laptops and then i read in a thread that the highest i can get is a 9650m gs because i only have a mxm II slot in my pc but on notebookcheck.com it says that the 9650 needs a mxm III slot. and the i have a question whether i could could use one of the new graphic cards from the geforce gtx 2000 serie
and finaly i have the question what else i could change to make my pc faster like ram or hard drive or soo
I've had this aspire 7720-6381 for about a week and a half now. I've been very satisfied, and have even been content with the mediocre laptop speakers it contains. I wasn't expecting much in that realm anyways.
The problem I have is that periodically the speakers will make an annoying clicking noise. It's pretty sucky. Even worse, after a time all sound will screw up and a deathly fuzzy roaring sound is all that is heard.
When I start-up or resume from sleep my AAO often makes an extremely loud noise like the fan is trying to run but is having trouble. It almost sounds like it is revving up. It will do it two or three times then stop. It usually doesn't do it during normal use--only when I'm trying to start-up or resume.
A few weeks ago I spilled green tea (no milk or sugar) on the desk around my Acer Aspire 5920 laptop. The tea went into the back left quarter of the machine, mainly through the ventilation holes and the ports on the left side. I removed the battery, drained the liquid, and let the machine dry out thoroughly. Since then the machine has worked fine. However, it occasionally makes strange noises, especially on start up. It's a fizzing/popping noise, in short bursts, like static. It sounds as if it's coming from the loudspeaker.
does anyone know the machine well enough to diagnose the fault? Only the components in the back left quarter of the machine got wet. Could there still be water in there? Is the noise a sign of a serious problem? What can I do to fix it? As I said, the spill happened several weeks ago, and, apart from the noise, the machine works fine.
The problem is, that my Aspire's screen keeps flickering and making weird waves and stuff. It basically makes text unreadable, and I almost can't see anything. To turn it somewhat normal, I turn down the light, but it's not working much. The text sometimes turns into different colors, Blue, green and red.
I've noticed that my 8510p's HDD (which is a Toshiba) makes a loud scratching sound for about a second every week or every two weeks. I ran HD Tune's error scan and it came up with no damaged blocks. What's wrong? Should I be worried? I've already backed-up my important stuff.
I bought a 13 inch macbook pro about a month ago and while enjoying my laptop, I heard a very faint tick sound. after a few days the tick sound become more prominent and after reading few complaints about ticking/clicking sound I am pretty sure this has nothing to do with the motion sensor or fan noise problems.
after few weeks gone by and I found out that if you press the bottom side of the laptop it will make a tick sound (is this normal?) I am not sure if this is causing the ticking problem I've been hearing.
My friend in the Netherlands spilled coke on his laptop. We're not sure how to remove the keyboard and can't find any instructions on how to on the internet. It's the weekend so he can't take it to the computer shop till monday. Anyone know what he should do to prevent further damage?
It is probably out of warranty. When i call Acer with the S/N and SNID they can't pull up any info anyway so.....
I was listening to some music yesterday night, then suddenly my laptop decided to shut down. No problem I thought, becaus it happened 2 times before in which I only had to start the laptop. This time however, the laptop does not want to turn on.
I tried turning it on with the battery, and without the battery(with the adapter plugged in). Nothing helps.
Also I have noticed that the light bulb on the adapter blok blinks if it is plugged into the laptop, but just normally doesnt blink when i pull the adapter out of the laptop(with or without battery).
I recently picked up a 3680, upgraded to a 320GB hard drive and switched to xp from Vista. Runs great but the speakers sound like they are down in a well literally. Could it be the drivers or do I need to replace the speakers? Anyone else have this problem? The reason I believe the speakers are ok is when I use headphones it sounds the same.
