Acer :: Win7 Won't Install On Vista Laptop 5630 Black Screen With Cursor

Dec 1, 2009

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?

Acer :: Aspire 8930G - Just Get A Black Screen And Nothing Else

Jun 8, 2009

My problem is that when i start up my Laptop (its about a week old) i just get a black screen and nothing else. The only way of solving this problem is to take out the power lead and the battery and start it up again. I dont want to have to do this everytime i start up my laptop.

This first happened after my laptop crashed (Frozen screen bussing through speakers) there was a lot running at the time, virus updates, windows updates etc.

Acer :: Aspire 8920G - Black Screen -> Alt+f10 Failure

Jul 27, 2009

I have an Aspire 8920G laptop.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled (with no installation nor recovery disks delivered).

I accidently hit the arcade button on the cinedash panel, instead of the power button. The computer started directly up into arcade deluxe, after a short install. Nice feature

I thought, and choose to exit arcade through the exit feature. Then I noticed that the computer prepared to hibernate, but instead it shut off after it finished.

After turning the computer on, a small complaint about improper closing the computer popped up, and I choose to start windows normally. Now the boot loader ran, and when I expected the logon screen, instead I met a black screen with a working mouse cursor. I eventually had to force power down, since crtl alt delete didn't work.

Since then, all boot options, safe mode etc leads to the same black screen.

Vista looks like it's going to boot normally then goes to a black screen with a working mouse pointer. The hard disk light just pulses every couple seconds.

I tried extracting the battery but it doesn't work.

I tried to alt+f10 - Vista Recovery page, so it gives me menu called "Edit Boot Options". There is the path to winload.exe and this:
"Partition: 2
Hard Disk: b8f0ffa4

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
]"
That's all what I have when I press ALT + F10.

I could type "Enter" = nothing happened
"Esc" = shutdown the system
"F8" = go to recovery page.

Hit f8:

Goes to a "Vista system recovery" or something like that, i'm not quite sure what its name was. Anyway it had about 6 options, including "Get windows to check for and correct the faults on your disk" in a little bit more high tech talk. And "Restore to a earlier point". Since the "Checking and correct faults" said it was recommended, i thought i'd go for that.

It ran its tool, told me to click the restart button. Runs it again, tells me to restart again.

And now it enters its final state - Its virtually dead :|. If i turn it on, it will go to the black screen, that talks about an improper shutdown, with the options for Safe Mode, Safe mode with networking.. etc. Any of these 4 options all result in the same black screen displaying only the mouse cursor.

I was not trying to install or upgrade nothing, was not trying to change form vista to xp or so.

I have not deleted any hidden partition (as far as I know...)

Acer :: 6920-6508 Vista 64 Can't Burn DVDs

Oct 28, 2008

I purchased a 6920-6508 for my mother so she has a PC to get email, surf the web, do some web video calls with the grand kids and keep pictures on, etc. So this laptop came with 4gb of ram, a DVD RW+- and Vista 64 on it but I can't burn DVDs. It can burn CDs with no problems but I get no joy when trying to burn a DVD (I am using TDK DVD+R 1-16x 4.7GB media). It can read DVD just fine, and I took one of the DVD+R disks that I was trying to write on, over to my 4 year old PC with a DVD burner in it and I was able to burn a disk just fine and the 6920 could read the disk I just burned with no problems.

Now if laptop came with a set of recovery DVDs I wouldn't be so frustrated, I just can't see my mother burning DVDs anytime soon, but I would like to burn a set of recovery disks so if she ends up trashing the system I can help her through a recovery process.

I have it all set up for her, and I want to mail it off to her, but I dread sending it to her with out the recovery disks. I am wondering if there is just some kind of driver problem for the DVD burner not being quite 64bit ready and maybe it that can be upgraded to a working driver, or maybe there is some kind of work around, but I just don't know.

Does your DVD burner work in your 6920-6508? According to the DVD player is a Slimtype DVD A DS8A1P ATA Device and the driver version is 6.0.6001.18000.

Acer :: Aspire 6920 Freezing

Apr 17, 2010

My Acer Aspire 6920 Laptop freezes occasionally, and nothing but a cold shutdown fixes it. Sometimes after I turn it back on again, the keyboard is unresponsive until after I've logged into my Windows 7. If I was playing music at the time of the freeze, it plays the last few seconds of music in slow motion over and over again.

There does't seem to be anything in particular that causes the crashes (sometimes I'm running games, other times it was idling).

How can I stop it freezing?

What I've tried: Reinstalling my Windows 7 64bit, Installing the latest drivers (from various sources)

I took a video of the laptop in it's frozen state, if this would help anyone? If it would, I can upload it to youtube... Basically nothing but a cold shutdown (holding in the power button) does anything.

It wouldn install Windows 7 so I went back to Windows Vista. I found my recovery disk and it sort of worked. There where no errors in the setup but when I start my computer it doesnt go to Windows.

It has a black screen with a white _ blinking.

Acer :: Aspire 6920 Review (After 2 Years)

Apr 8, 2010

Hey folks. I wrote a review for The Acer Guy back when I first bought my laptop (Aspire 6920-6621), but it's time for an update.
(Link to my original review [url]
Here's some basic specs:
Windows Vista Home Premium
Two 140gig HD's
1.83GhZ Dual Core Intel Processor
3gig RAM
And some dinky graphics chip.

Well, after two years, I have to say it has held up but not as well as I think it should have.

A few months after writing my first review, I had to send my Laptop to Acer. Admittedly, the customer support was fantastic. They took care of me.

HOWEVER, I'm not pleased with how my computer came back. It wasn't put back together, and I didn't want to send it back to them again.

Regardless, the build quality is a bit iffy. Not sure if other people have had this issue, but cracks are forming in several places. The first time I sent the computer back, it was because of cracks on the bezel. They replaced it, but after a few months the cracks came back. There is also a crack on the bottom cover.

Keyboard flex is there but not too severe.

When I was dusting my keyboard, the sharp end of the spacebar snapped off, so now a good few mm's are missing. I sanded it down and it looks fine, but still.

The express card placeholder doesn't stay in well, in fact, if you aren't careful, the thing will come out.

In terms of performance, it's still holding up. I've not had any problems with Vista, and I game as well as code. Steam has given me a few C++ errors, but meh.

Audio quality is acceptable. The left speaker is crackling and the "subwoofer" adds a nice effect, but overall it's disappointing. Should be better for all the hype.

Screen quality is actually pretty good, much better than most computers I've used. The only thing that I've used that compares is a Mac.

Acer :: How To Unhide And Delete Recovery Partition In Aspire 6920

Oct 3, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook which came with vista home premium in 64 bit installed. I have made Recovery disks (3 DVDs) and had resorted to factory defaults several times by using the DVDs and not by Alt+F10 (at that time I did not know about alt+f10). I now have removed the 64- bit vista home premium and have windows-7 Ultimate RTM, Vista Home Premium and XP Pro all in 32 bit in three separate partitions in one single hdd. I have also done BIOS upgrade from 1.06 to 1.14. I have SATA mode set to IDE instead of the default AHCI due to XP not functioning under AHCI interface.

My BIOS shows hdd pw frozen by default though I have removed the hdd and set the BIOS to default twice. I find the Vista Home Premium in 64 bit OEM is a real pain since it has a lot of third party softwares free and sharewares which I have to uninstall every time (more than 20 of them) and therefore I tried to delete the acers recovery partition which is of 18 GB size and my Notebook with 250 GB hdd shows only 232 GB.

However, the partition is hidden and I have tried to unhide and delete the recovery partition with a number of third party partition softwares like Paragon, partedit32, Easeus, Norton, acronis, G-parted, macrium reflect, all with no success!

Now I request the learned members to give me a solution that will work, in simple procedure explained, to unhide the acer recovery partition and deleting it without disturbing my present OSes installed on the three partitions. Macrium does not show the PQ Service/EISA partition.

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 5634 WLMi - Black Images Cause Green Flickering Dots

Oct 13, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5634WLMi with 2 years. Got a problem on the monitor (15.4-inch LCD CrystalBite).

It slowly started a year ago (at that time still had warranty but underestimated the problem and now it expired). In all the black images(movies, photos) began to appear some green fluorescent dots that looks like they are living (in English I think is called flickering spots, jaggies?!) which then disappear and come back. I did not care at first because both appeared to disappear. Over time there have appeared more, followed by purple dots now. These purple dots are never in black image but sometimes they are the shadow of the black image. But in videos with very dark black only come green dots (always flickering). In all the other colors there is no problem, for example I am writing this in Word and the blue and white of this image is not green. It is however in my opinion a little blurry, I do not know. The letters are black (with a slight green Halo) but it seems that they arent standing still and shake a little. The most strange is that on the desktop there is a pattern of green dots on the bottom left and a purple on the upper corner that are often there but sometimes also move around. In fact there was not so long ago a time when I got a perfect image. I began to think that the laptop went to very warm, open a part, cleaned the fan and reduce the processor speed by changing the temperature of the device. After a while it disappeared. But this improvement lasted only 1 day. Then it began all over again. I have also tried to connect the computer to another monitor and had a perfect image, so it seems that it is not the graphics. On the Internet I found many of these reports that the cable that goes from the graphicscard to the monitor is damaged and that a simple substitution leads to full restoration of the notebook. Anyway before attempting to open the laptop (I've been watching some videos of how to do) like to have another opinion from someone who realizes this. I already took him ah repair but wanted 250 euro to replace the monitor with dead pixels (which I think is wrong they are not all dead, and until very squiggly and alternate location). For 250euros rather buy a new though economically not good for me. When the computer has a completely black image is all green. For example when the screensaver comes with the ball moving from one place to another.

Acer :: Vista To Xp On Aspire 3680

I Bought and Xp Disk but, It doesnt detect my harddrive (Classic Sata Problem)

So I hear there are two ways to get around this...

1.)Change AHCI in Bios, which doesnt work for me because my laptop doesnt seem to have this Option in Bios, so thats out...

2.) And Slipstreaming which I have found drivers that people have refferred to other people but I dont quite understand how they work...(The tutorial I was reading and the drivers I downloaded didnt add up)

So I was hoping someone could give me specific instructions( for my model) for either of these methods to install Xp (Spent lot of cash on the disk dont want it go to to waste)

I sent Acer and e-mail today but not have heard back yet. They seem to provide 64 bit drivers, so it would make sense if they gave you a way to upgrade the OS.

Acer :: Vista 64 Bit Drivers For Aspire 4730

Mar 6, 2009

I just bought an aspire 4730 from staples yesterday. It comes with Vista Home Premium 32bit, but I'd like to install vista 64bit on it. The CPU supports it. It has a T3400

I went to acer support here [url] and looked up drivers for the 4730Z/4730ZG but the drivers that are shown are for the aspire 4330.

And the only 64 bit drivers shown are for bluetooth (which the 4730 doesnt have), Intel graphics, and nvidia graphics (which it doesnt have).

Where can i get wifi, motherboard, touchpad drivers for this model if i decide to run vista 64 on it?

should i call acer support and ask them if vista 64 is supported?
