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 :: 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.

HP Mini 210-1060EV Display :: Black Border - Screen Shifted Down After Power Failure

Jun 19, 2013

HP Mini 210-1000 ... Actually it's HP Mini 210-1060EV PC  
 
From product specifications: Display: 25.6 cm (10.1") Diagonal WSVGA LED HP BrightView Infinity Widescreen Display BID (1024 x 600)
 
Battery has been dead a long time. My display drivers  and BIOS have recently been updated from HP website. After a power failure and a restart, the display looks weird. It was shifted about an inch downwards with a black border at the top, over which the mouse will not go, and the taskbar is not visible as is off the bottom of the screen.
 
When I go to Screen Resolution from Windows by right clicking on desktop resolution is set as 1024x768, when I click on Advanced Settings, Monitor tab,  Monitor is set as Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1024x768 60Hz). When I change to 1024x600 it looks blurry and stretched vertically, but the screen is still shifted downwards with black border on top. 
When I enter Intel Graphics Settings I can do the same changes as in the Windows dialog box (640x480, 800x600,1024x600,1024x768).  

In the Aspect Ratio Options when I select Fullscreen (No-Border) the  Black border is fixed but the screen still appears streched vertically but the screen is cut off at the bottom with no Taskbar visible. Re-installed graphics driver as well as a few Monitor Type Drivers from windows, nothing changes. When I turn the notebook on, the HP Quickweb screen also appears as a 1024x600 stretched vertically with no black border at top but going off the display at the bottom.
 
It appears that  Windows and Hp Quickweb see the display as 1024x768 60Hz after the power failure. Before that, I had installed some Windows Updates but nothing related to Display drivers. I only had a System Restore point from earlier that day (very low free hard drive space?) but that didnt do anything.
 
Guessing it's a registry/driver problem since no pixels are bad and the black border on top is fixed in Aspect Ratio Options when I select Fullscreen (No-Border).

Acer :: 8920G - Randomly Turns Off/has A Blue Screen

Jul 2, 2009

for the past 3 days my Acer 8920G has been acting..very strange. It randomly turns off/has a blue screen, then I can't use it for 6-10 hours before it works again, but then only for 30 min then repeats. I've checked the temperatures for the HDD/CPU/GPU on the time I was on, and the HDD was 58C, CPU and GPU were around 50C (With FF3.5, iTunes, MSN and Vuze running). I've taken off the back panel and removed the dust but that didn't do anything at all. This morning I turned it on after leaving it upside down (back panel on) to vent all the air (if I left it open more dust would've gone in) and it wouldn't even hit the desktop. Kept crashing when it hits the desktop (that's basically what happens when I try and turn it on after it has a blue screen or turns off). So I opened the back panel and let my hand hover over the components - no heat what so evr radiated from it, which means it can't have overheated...right? Now I can only run it with the back panel off, which I'm doing now in a well ventilated area.

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 :: 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 :: 8920g BIOS

May 8, 2009

I require some help on repairing a bad bios flash for this laptop. The problem started after clearing the bios from with in windows and then using acer esettings to create another password which would save the bios but it seems it did not save properly and resulted in a bad flash.

The laptop no longer boots up, it just hangs with a black screen.

I have downloaded the updated bios file from acer web page and used various methods for other acer models which use a usb floppy with the crisis recovey disk and rename 114.rom bios file to bios.wph but cant seem to trigger the laptop into booting from the floppy using win+b/esc and fn+b/esc.

I have also tried putting the bios file onto a cd with various different file names but again it doesnt want to boot from cd either.

Acer :: Upgrading 8920G GPU

Sep 26, 2008

Purchased my 8920G-8332Q32Bn a few months back and at the time, the GeForce 9650 wasn't available so I settled for the 9500M GS. I find its performance very sluggish and read somewhere that these lappies come with "MXM-II" meaning the GPU's are swappable? Would anyone know of the costs associated and if it's even possible.

I don't know if there's something faulty with my GPU. I installed Microsoft FS9.1 with AF at 4x and AA at 8 and used to average 40fps. Now, under the same settings, same scenery, same amount of scenery, I barely make 15fps. I've tried resetting all settings in FS and the Nvidia Control panel but to no avail. I do notice that the laptop is much much hotter than before.

Acer :: Audiodg.exe - 8920G

Apr 12, 2009

Since the start of this year I own an Acer 8920G laptop. Playing games (WoW) is almost impossible due to the fact the AudioDG process is kicking in randomly eating loads of processor time and messing up the sound.

I've read several threads about this problem but never saw an actual solution. I am NOT going to disable any sounds effects on my laptop nor am I going to disable my microphone. Imho that's ridicilous.

So, before I sent this laptop straight back to his creator(s), anyone knows a) whats the actual root cause of this problem, and b) anyone knows a solution.

Acer :: 8920g Owners

Oct 9, 2008

I have recently purchased an acer 8930. To be honest the display is pretty rubbish. Alot of backlight streaks.

I have tried to alter the display settings in the nvidia control panel but it won't let me do this. I can slide the bars up and down the % line but nothing on the display changes.

I phoned acer support but they weren't aware of this problem and the guy thought that acer have locked this option.

I was wondering if this is
A. A fault with my laptop
B. Acer doesn't allow this
C. Can do it on the 8920g but not the 8930

I can type a few sentences then look up and realize I am 1 or 2 sentences up in the paragraph typing in the middle of a word etc. Luckily I dont type alot on this computer but I need to. For example, while typing the I after luckily in the previou sentence, I look up and the I was in front of the I in the 3rd sentence. I have the touch control center to the left locked. I have emailed Acer support for a few months!with no response. I live in the US and Acer support is non exsistant here. I like Acer but if I had known about the poor support I probably would have purchased another brand.

Acer :: Weird Hangs In 8920G Vista HP64

Apr 9, 2009

I just bought a not-so-portable Acer 8920G in Argentina. It is a great laptop, but I'm running into random hangs all the time, with no easy explanation. The hangs are system-wide, all programs stop to function and the only thing I can do is move the mouse pointer around the screen. The alt-tab also works and I can switch between non-functioning programs, although nothing can be done to close them or to recover them.
One curious thing is that the task manager doesn't appear to work during this hangs, but after the system recovers, the TM appears on the screen normally.

Sometimes this hangs keep on going for many minutes, and disabling the Wi-Fi or pressing the power button, or plugging/unplugging something USB causes the system to get back to work as if nothing would happen. Very, very weird.

I haven't installed an AV, and I am sure it is not a Virus-related problem, since it began the very first day I bought the laptop, being behind a corporate firewall.

This is my first computer running Windows Vista Home Premium 64, so I can't tell if I am having an OS-caused problem. Besides, when I'm not having this problem, the system works perfectly, with no signs of something malfunctioning. Sometimes I can use the computer for a couple of hours straight without errors, specially if it already had a hang before.
