Acer :: Aspire 7738G - Subwoofer Seems To Be Broken

Jan 23, 2010

I have an Aspire 7738G and I have a few questions.

My subwoofer seems to be broken, sometimes it sounds as it should but sometimes it sounds like a broken speaker. Have anyone else experienced this? Is there a easy fix or do I need to hand it in for repair?

When it was new 2 months ago I began with creating two partitions on the windows drive (it has 2 harddrives) because I don't like it when the windows partition is on 500 gb, then everything got screwed and nothing worked (I so hate the MS partitioning tool).

Because of this I lost the backup partition and the genuin OS. I have ordered the windows seven upgrade but I wonder, can I do a clean install without having a genuin os on the pc, with the upgrade kit?

Is there anyway I get a new backup partition?

I do have a serial on the back of the laptop for vista, is there anywhere I can get the oem dvd for vista for this laptop and install it with my serial?

Right now I have windows 7 RC and the volume touch slider does not work. I can't find any drivers for it on the acer driver site. IS it broken or what is wrong?

Acer :: Aspire 7730 Subwoofer Volume

Aug 8, 2009

I've got an Aspire 7730 which is about a month old. Everything is working fine except the subwoofer seems to be very weak. You need to put your ear up against it to hear anything at all so it's more or less useless as is. My brother's 5920 has a very good subwoofer and the sound output is excellent from it.

Would anyone know if this is normal for the 7730 or do I have a faulty subwoofer?

Acer :: Overheat - 7738G

Apr 20, 2010

I have my 7738G(specs in sig) for 8 months now and did not have a problem til a week ago when I had my first reboot while playing Borderlands. I figured it must be the game or something since that problem did not repeat itself for a few days. I had to work all week long and I didn't get the chance to play B-lands and soon forgot about the problem.

Today I bought Lineage II Gracia Epilogue and I ran it at nat res with max settings with HDR rendering and all the flashy/fancy depth of field filters and effects turned on and guess what. My notebook keeps rebooting every 15 mins of gameplay even though I average at about 40~45 fps. Same thing happens with Borderlands, Call of Duty 4 and GRiD. Now this is really weird since my GPU temp idles at @ 47-50 degrees but whenever I start playing something it jumps to 78-80 degrees (must be the max amount til it reboots). My 4 core CPU idles at 49~54 and tops 78~81 when gaming. I want to ask you guys if you know any good method that could lower the temp, also could the high temp rates result from dust inside the machine(even though it isn't a year old), would a cooling pad make any difference?

Acer :: 7738G Touchpanel

Dec 8, 2009

It worked fine with vista, after installing Windows 7 the touch panel wont work as it should. I installed the latest Launch manager driver from Acers website.

First of all, the Launch manager looks alot older than the previous one despite its a new version. Play, stop, foward, rewind, mute buttons work as they should. But the sound volume doesnt, when im pressing volume up and down a text shows up on the screen " Volume" but the thing is that it wont go up or down. The volume pins jumps back and foward.

Acer :: Upgrading My CPU 7738G From T6500 To T9300

Sep 24, 2009

Have a t9300 from an HP Pavillion that died, and figured I could best put it to use in my new Acer 7738g, which currently has a t6500. I've heard it's possible but the whole socket M/socket P thing has me scratching my head...

Also not sure if the 7738 is one of those take-everything-apart-to-get-to-the-CPU jobs or just uncrew the base... and then eventually the heat sink to get to the CPU...anyone with experience with this series?

Acer :: Dropped Aspire 3680 Just The Screen, Or Other Hw Broken

Mar 31, 2009

My husband dropped his Aspire 3680-2682 the other day and the screen went wonky. I booted it off a VGA monitor and it seems to be fine running from there, BUT I could not get it to boot to VGA except in safe mode, and when I choose to boot in regular mode it goes to the LCD screen and doesn't allow switching the display to the external monitor.

This is the only thing that concerns me that it might not be just the screen that sustained damage.

I was eventually able to get th bezel off (it doesn't come 100% off on this model but doesn't need to) and remove the lcd panel for inspection. The thin board taped to the back of the panel doesn't seem to be visibly broken or strained and the connectors to it were taped so firmly in place they didn't budge on impact. The small board that rests at the bottom of the top case under the bezel (the inverter?) can't be inspected well and I don't want to damage it by trying. In any case nothing appears damaged to the naked eye on or around the screen.

The first pic is how the screen looks when booted; it also (visibly) flickers and redraws continuously. The second shows that applying pressure allows a clearer view of the console and stops the flickering.

I have found a replacement screen online for 50.00 and feel comfortable enough trying to replace it rather than spend the cost of a new laptop on sending it for repairs.

However, if it's not just the screen I don't want to throw more money at this.

In your experienced opinions, does it look like the damage is typical of a broken LCD screen and not something in the motherboard? (no clue on how to get a closer look at that stuff. took every screw out of it last night and couldn't get the bottom case to reveal its secrets.)

Acer Aspire S3-951 :: Screen Broken - Force HDMI Output

Oct 13, 2014

Aspire S3. The PC is perfectly fine, except the fact the the screen is broken. It already broke twice (just by opening...), so we are not spending money on a third one.So, what I want to do is to connect it to an external monitor through HDMI (and possibly remove the broken screen, since it has no use). I can do it in Windows, but not outside Windows (BIOS) and I'd like install Windows 8.1 or 10. So my question is: can I force output from boot into HDMI? If so how, if not, what alternatives do I have to install a new version of Windows without spending a small fortune?

Acer Aspire E5-571-5552 :: Wake From Sleep Using USB Mouse / Keyboard Broken

Jan 24, 2015

I bought a new Acer E5-571-5552 recently, it came with Windows 8.1 64bit. One of the ways I use my laptop often is in "docked mode", basically connect it to external monitor via HDMI, and external USB mouse & keyboard. I set the windows power options for "close lid" to do nothing, then it works fine like a desktop. This works fine with all other laptops I've used in the past (Lenovo, HP, Toshiba...etc). But this new Acer has trouble waking from sleep, the USB keyboard & mouse only light up, but doesn't wake up the fan/drive/monitor. I have to open the lid and press a key on the laptop (USB keyboard/mouse still doesn't).
 
I've opened case 3601882U and chatted with 2 agents, one had me update to latest BIOS 1.11 which didn't resolve it. The other tried to insist it was a limited feature, that the Acers had to have lid open to wake up the computer from sleep. I think this is a broken feature. Is this true for all Acers, or just this windows 8.1 model?

Acer :: 8930 Subwoofer (& Resolution)

May 30, 2009

I have a 5.1 output on my comp and after reading up on Wikipedia I'm still not sure whether I should be getting sound from 5 or all 6 speakers. In the test thing it says ; If the low frequency sounds are not heard from the subwoofer (Tuba) then I should check the "Swap" box to swap the center speaker for the subwoofer, which seems to indicate I should normally be getting sound from all 6 speakers, as when I make the test Icones all 6 speakers send out soundwaves. I'm pretty sure that, in the past, I was getting sound from all the speakers, and that the subwoofer was a lot stronger than before.

Acer :: 6920G Tuba Subwoofer Stopped Working

Jan 8, 2010

I've had this laptop since November as a replacement for my old 6920G which unfortunately got stolen, and the subwoofer/booster has been working fine with the latest Realtek driver on Windows 7.

However today I noticed that my music sounded a bit 'tinny', then discovered that the tuba booster thing wasn't working at all. I have no idea when it stopped working, although I suspect it my have physically broken in some way as I've done quite a bit of trvelling with my laptop over Christmas.

Is there any way I can properly identify the cause of the problem, and how would I go about getting it fixed? I'm not sure if I even have a warranty as I bought it second hand off ebay!

Acer :: Tuba Cinebass Subwoofer Not Working With Windows 7

Dec 14, 2009

I have installed a clean version of Windows 7 on my Acer 6530G and installed the drivers provided on the Acer site, but after setting 5.1 audio in the settings and ran the test, there is no sound coming out of the Subwoofer.

I don't have any Acer software anymore, only because there are none to download on the Acer site apart from the launch manager.

Does anyone know what I need to do in order to get the subwoofer to work?

Tried getting the empower framework to install in order to use the launch button for it, but keep getting an error message about 'no supported operating system'!

Acer :: Line Out Is Broken On My Extensa

Jan 11, 2010

I got an Acer Extensa 5420 a few months ago refurbished and at first everything seemed fine. A month or so later I noticed that the line out had a small crack in the middle of the green ring.. a little annoying but my headphones seemed to work fine so I just ignored it. After using the line out for a few months it's become more and more faulty. Now, when I plug in headphones no sound comes out, it doesn't even recognize anything is plugged in unless I have it turned at the exact right angle. I know the audio jack is just screwed up, but what options do I have to fix this problem?

Acer :: Broken LCD Send To For Repair Or DIY

Sep 29, 2009

I have a 4 month old Acer Aspire 6920G laptop with a cracked LCD. It happened just by catching the corner of it (the plastic surround, not the lcd) with the back of my hand (it was just a tap for god's sake!) as I went to plug in a memory stick. Brilliant. I guess the screen was weakened for some reason.

Anyway, I know the screen isn't covered by the warranty so I was wondering how much Acer charge to replace the screen? I've looked around and can get a new replacement screen for about 95 and fit it myself but I assume that will void the rest of my warranty? I'm happy to go the DIY route if a screen is far more expensive from Acer.

Acer :: Extensa Motherboard BROKEN

Mar 31, 2009

I noticed that if I have to shut it down by turning the power off directly from the power switch (without shutting down Vista first), some problems arise.

The next time you try to boot the laptop after doing an "emergency shut down" like that, the laptop starts making a very loud beeping noise and it's very hard to boot it (eventually it will boot, though). My friend said he doesn't have problems like this even if he has to turn off the power by pressing the power button for 4 secs.

Is the motherboard broken?

Acer :: What Cost To Replace A Broken Screen?

I recently dropped my acer 5315 and now the screen is broken. There are a lot of black blotches and a little color and some lines when I start up and it stays that way.

Would anybody know approximately what it would cost to replace the screen or know where I could purchase one.

How big of a job would it be to replace as I have never worked on a laptop.

Acer :: TravelMate 7520 - Computer Broken

Apr 29, 2009

I'm using an Acer TravelMate 7520. I had it with me at university, and had no problems (other than it being a little slow sometimes...). When I came home for the summer it started freezing up, and then emitting a loud, constant beep. it will work fine for a few minutes upon start, but then the programs start to freeze, then the mouse, then the beep comes. I did a virus scan and came up with 2 viruses, which i removed, but it is still doing it!! I can't figure out what is wrong with it, or a solution.

The other day it got very hot, because me (like an idiot) left it sitting on my bed with the fan covered. It cooled off and everything, and the fan works fine.

Acer :: 1410 Broken Hinge Options

Mar 16, 2010

i dropped my netbook last night and cracked the left hinge. the hinge itself actually seems like a two piece and snapped back together, however it looks like it completely broke off the body.

the netbook looks like it still works, but im wondering what my options are, if any?

im assuming the standard acer warranty doesn't cover this...is it worth trying to fix myself, or is that even possible? should i just pray it keeps working and just hope for the best?

I can't tell if the subwoofer is outputting any sound. Is there a way to disable the speakers and just have the subwoofer active (aside from taking the laptop apart and disconnect cables).
