Acer :: Aspire 7720G WLan And Booting After Sleep

Oct 21, 2008

I bought an ACER Aspire 7720G Intel Core 2 Duo with Vista SP1 3 weeks ago and have now some problems with my WLan and with booting after sleep. WLan only works when I restart the computer after swiching on the WLan connection either by pressing the WLan button or by activating the connection in "networks and sharing center" (at least it works then, but it's annoying to restart the computer all the time). Since I use WLan at home I get a message while booting the system (Broadcom UNDI PXE.... Client... MAC ADDR:... GUID... DHCP ...not found..blabla). I use a Lan connection at work and here I have no problems yet. My second problem is that my computer really stays asleep after I woke it up from sleep or just if I would not use it some minutes. It does not show any system related information anymore and I can only restart it again. I have looked up my BIOS and it is Version 1.44 (read the thread about the BIOS problems),

Acer :: Aspire 7720g Network

Oct 23, 2008

I have recently bought the Acer Aspire 7720g laptop and kinda like the spec. Though I have had 2 major annoying issues with it. The first is that it would never boot at first attempt after an overnight shutdown. This was resolved by installing BIOS version 1.43 after finding a solution on this forum.

The second is one that I can not for the life of me find the reason. The network connections of the laptop will stop working after a few minutes and requires several restarts to make stable. This only seems to happen to the wireless connection. It does not drop signal it just seems to disable.

Yet I have unticked the 'allow Windows to turn of the wireless device to save power' thing. Updated all drivers and BIOS to the most current found version. Also when the wireless network 'turns off' I can not get into network and sharing centre or use the 'Connect To' option, they just both hang.

Even turning the wireless off and back on with the laptop switch makes no difference.

Acer :: Aspire 7720G Upgrade

Dec 6, 2009

Recently I had a little upgrade adventure of my Aspire 7720G, replaced the nV 8400M GS with 9600M GT 512MB, added 4GB DDR2 @ 667MHz, and then I decided to upgrade the CPU also. I was thinking about T9500 for a long time, then I came across Intel's X9000 CPU (OEM, not the ES). I installed it, BIOS recognized it, Windows also (Win 7 Ultimate x64), but then I noticed something strange. It works only at 1.2GHz, in idle and in 100% load, when it should be at 2.8GHz. I tried my luck with power schemes, I have the latest BIOS, updated drivers and no change at all. CPU-Z reports it works at 1.2GHz all the time with a multiplier x6, it should be at x14. RMClock didn't help me at all, CPUgenie also. Old CPU was T7300, it was also working at 1.2GHz with multiplier x6 in idle but in 100% load the multiplier jumped to x10 and it worked at full speed; 2GHz. Windows Experience Index with T7300 was 5.1, for X9000 is 3.9!

Acer :: Aspire 7720G Memory Cover

Sep 20, 2008

I wanted to open my box to check the ease (or not) of a memory upgrade but had a helluva sweaty time trying to get the compartment cover off.

After undoing the 4 screws and getting it open a bit, it still seemed VERY firmly held in the vicinity of the fan vent area.

The plastic cover is pretty thin and I was terrified of breaking it, so tried a little prying, a bit of heaving, some levering, tugging, jabbing, swearing, praying etc. I even had the computer overturned and was looking for a way through the keyboard where I was convinced that a bolt must be holding the memory cover down.

Anyway it DID finally come loose but it was a bit scary, so I've made a couple of scans and added some notes on the lugs which were holding it in place in the hope that it might prove useful to others in the same predicament.

One scan is of the actual lid and the other is of what's inside, in case you get to feel like pushing a screwdriver in there - (don't).

Acer :: ( Aspire 7720G ) 2 X Hard Drive

May 4, 2009

In the specs listed on the website, and on the sticker on the laptop itself:

320 GB Dual HDD
(160 GBx2)

I am going insane, on the device manager it says I have two HDs, but I think one of them has been partitioned, the one with the windows data on (C drive) the HDs in my computer are displayed as this:

I've been told of a program call 'Raid' or something, but I'm really not sure what it actually does.

I just want to know if the two smaller HDs are partitioned and if possible, how to join them up again,

Acer :: ASPIRE 7720G Audio And Clock

Feb 18, 2009

my Acer's been having trouble playing audio and keeping time. The clock problem's simple: ever since I got it it's lost time at a variable rate, averaging at probably around a minute every hour. Nothing I've done has managed to fix this, except in the short-term by updating it to Internet time.

More complicated have been the audio issues. These vary in severity and come and go to an extent, and I have had some success fixing them. Basically, since I got the computer, audio's been at least slightly choppy while playing videos over a period of time. Generally just playing audio files themselves work fine (unless something resource heavy going on in the background), and bizarrely playing videos through my browser (say on YouTube) has always been perfect, regardless of site, length or quality of video. But when it comes to playing anything from the hard drive regardless of whether it's WMP or VLC and regardless of bit rate, sooner or later the audio screws up. This can be either to the extent that it'll glitch every couple of seconds, that I'll lose sync with the video slightly, or loss of sound entirely. In fact, the first time I downloaded a video podcast on iTunes I was left wondering why the opening scene was so eerily silent for so long!

Now initially I was able to fix this by updating the BIOS to v1.45 and after that pretty much everything was good. It would still glitch occasionally on HD movies, and certainly still didn't like too much going on in the background, but generally nothing I couldn't handle. At least until now, when all the same problems have come back to haunt me worse than ever. I tried going on to v1.43, but no dice. And now I'm back on v1.45 in the vain hope that re-installing it might make some difference. But alas. I've looked at performance in task manager and it's ticking along at about 16% CPU usage, so nothing untoward there either. It seems like a BIOS problem because updating the BIOS fixed it, but now it's screwing up again under that same BIOS and with nothing untoward going on in the background or hitting the CPU too hard I'm totally stumped.

Basically, is there anything else I might try software wise, or is it time to give Acer a call while I'm still in warranty?

Acer :: Overclocking GeForce 9500M GS On Aspire 7720G

Jan 18, 2010

Over-clocking with RivaTuner. Right now I'm at 500Mhz for core, 1Ghz for shader and 425MHz for RAM.

On idle graphics card is at about 63C and processor at 33C with fan off.

To put some load on system, I used Intel BurnIn standard test and two instances of 64bit version of fluidsGL.exe from nVidia's Cuda SDK (acording to GPU-Z, the load on graphics card is about 93%). Mandelbrot.exe does put some more load on graphics card, but it closes as soon s application looses focus, so it isn't as convenient.

When I run tests, temperatures are around 85C for graphics card and 65C for processor.

I wanted to ask you how much should I overclock the graphics card and what are safe temperatures? I plan to use this laptop for few more years, so I do not wan to cook my graphics card.

Acer :: Aspire 9500 Booting

Mar 30, 2008

last year i formated my acer 9500 laptop and got a normal home win xp. A couple of days ago i got a hold of my original acer system cds and i decided to restore my system back.

Everything went well until the install finished; I was in windows and the first time i restarted the laptop it didnt boot back in win xp. When its about to start booting windows it stops and all i get is a black screen and a flickering white small line on the top line. I tried reinstalling the original system again and the same thing happends; after the first restart it doesnt want to boot xp.

I started reading forums and found out that if i press alt+f10 it might fix the problem.

It worked, if i press alt f10 before it reaches the black screen it loads into xp. This is the only way i can load it. As i read i got the feeling i might have messed up my MBR.

Im not sure how this all works but i have a hunch that my laptop doenst know where my xp is when its supposed to load it and by pressing alt f10 it somehow temporarly fixes that.

Is there any way to permanently fix this ? Some pple said that if i ran a normal non-acer win xp cd and ran some sort of MBR fix it might solve my problems. Im getting a cd from a friend in a couple of days . Is there any other way i can fix my notebook before then ?

Its not a big deal if i have to press alt f10 everytime i restart but its annoying and i have a hunch ill run into trouble later on.

Acer :: Aspire 6920 Not Booting

Dec 13, 2009

I was installing Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 6920.

It had Windows Vista installed. I deleted all the partitions including backup (Yes I found out that was stupid), and tried installing Windows 7.

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 5536 Slow Booting

Nov 16, 2009

I have a brand new Acer Aspire 5536 Notebook. It came pre-shipped with Vista which I did not want.

So I tried a fresh install of Win7 - formatted drive etc,. Machine takes 5+ mins to boot so I put this down to a compatibility issue and tried XP. However I have the same problem, fresh install with only updates installed and it takes forever to boot (even longer than Win7).

Once booted performance is ok (in Win7 it was near perfect). Any ideas, I am beginning to think it is defective.

Acer :: Aspire 7720- Booting And Sound

May 13, 2010

Acer Aspire 7720 I've got. Basically it has both the common boot-up freeze and crackly/distorted sound problems that appear to be common. I understand that the best, albeit riskiest, way to solve these is to flash the bios to a more recent version, which I am prepared to do.

However - the bios upgrades are not available from Acer's own support site, and I don't know where else I can find them, and I have tried.... Is there anyone who can help me locate them? The problems with this laptop are driving me spare, and I really can't afford another, or even another motherboard, just yet.

Acer Aspire 6530 :: System Not Booting

Nov 4, 2014

I have had my acer aspire 6530 since August 2009 now. It never had any major problems. Sadly, after comming back from New Years Eve 2014, I wanted to turn it on, but it just started up for around 4 seconds and then started to reboot again and continued so, until power was plugged out or shut down. There was only a black screen, without BIOS etc.I've searched forums for a solution, all of whom resulted in failure.

Acer :: Aspire ES1-511 / Mouse Doesn't Work After Booting From The CD

Nov 4, 2014

Just bought an Aspire ES1-511. Not my first Windows 8.1 laptop, but my first with UEIF firmware.
 
I've been trying to boot Driveimage from CD to do an offline backup, and guess what, it wouldnt recognise the CD as bootable. Fixed that by setting the boot type to "Legacy" in the BIOS and it boots fine.
 
My problem is that the mouse doesnt work after booting from the CD. Watching the behaviour of the mouse, it powers up when I press the power button, but powers off immediately the POST completes.
 
If booting Windows from the HD, power to USB is restored as soon as windows loads to the lock screen.

Acer Aspire V5 473P-5602 :: Computer Sometimes Booting Into InsydeH20

Jan 14, 2015

I have an Aspire V5 -473P-5602. This is my 2nd unit as the first had issues that couldn't be fixed. Had this replacement for 2 months now and has been working great until recently. I'm hoping this is a minor thing, but I can't seem to find anything online about it.
 
Basically, sometimes when I turn on the computer it boots into the "insydeh20" screen. Not every time but enough to be annoying to me. The computer is pretty much as is when I got it new. No 3rd party apps, nothing modified etc etc.
 
Again, except for installing Windows updates nothing on the computer has been changed. Sometimes when I start the computer I hear a clicking sound ( one click) Seems it makes the noise when there is a Microsft update available. Normal?? Never did it before...

Acer Aspire V5 122P :: Not Booting To Windows - Cannot Refresh Or Recover

Acer Aspire 5552-5898 :: Not Always Booting And Motherboard Won't Hold Date

Nov 30, 2014

I have a 4 year old Aspire 5552-5898 which is having issues ....
 
First issue is that the Laptop doesn't always boot. When this happens, the power button will light, the fan will spin, the HDD will start, but the screen stays black. Sometimes the PC will restart but the same thing will happen. Usually when this happens, if you hold down the power button, the laptop will power down, only to start up again. The only way to end this cycle is to unplug the machine and pull out the battery. Also of note this seems to happen 100% of the time if the machine is not plugged in, and about 50% of the time when it is.
 
The next issue occurs when the machine does actually boot. I HAVE to enter the bios because it never holds the date. I thought this could be a CMOS battery issue, but even after replacing that, the problem persists. After entering the date, and saving and exiting, the machine will boot into windows just fine.
