Acer Aspire E1-571 :: Hangs On Boot Post Windows Update - Appears To Be Corrupt Driver

Feb 19, 2015

My daughter's Acer is 2.5 years old and it's running Windows 7.  She recently rebooted it last week for a Windows Update and since then it starts up but hangs, with the hard drive light blinking slowly.  I ran it in Safe Mode and it gets through CLASSPNP.SYS then hangs.  According to articles this is usually a hardware problem.  The only option I have with this OS is to bring up the Command Prompt.  I've tried System File Checker - no go.  System Repair comes back with unknown error and what looks like a bad Driver.
 
I was able to build a new partition (100+GB) and do a clean install of Windows 7 x64 Ultimate w/ SP1.  This went through fine, though I would have to load the Acer drivers for the network card, etc. to finalize it.  The point here is that this shows that the hard drive isn't the issue.
 
My fear is that Windows installed either some sort of driver or other update that has now caused the current OS on her laptop to be unusable.  I went to do a System Restore and the only restore point it had was the Critical Update that she rebooted to on 2/13.  Trying to roll back to that Restore Point didn't work.

Acer Aspire V3-571 :: Won't Boot Past POST With HDD Installed

Sep 18, 2014

I have been working on computers for almost 20 years and this has me completely confused. My Aspire V3-571-6643 laptop was working fine until just recently. The system will power on and show the Acer screen and then immediately reboots. It will stay in this reboot loop until manually stopped.
 
I cleaned and reseated the RAM module and also tried it in both slots with no change. I was able to access BIOS and determined the drives and all settings are correct and even reset to factory defaults with no change. I then pulled the HDD to use in a docking station to determine if the drive was salvagable. Everything reads fine and passed both short and long tests via SeaTools. With the HDD installed the system won't try to boot to CD/USB but after removing it the system will boot to CD just fine. I then ran a full scan using Eurosoft Pc-Check and everything is fine. I reinstalled the HDD and immediately get the reboot loop again.
 
At this point the mainboard and HDD both test fine independently but will not work together. My only guess is that the mainboard is no longer supplying enough power for all of the components and crashing when the HDD tries to spin up on boot. That, or the SATA controller is malfunctioning and only working for the ODD.

Acer Aspire 5738G :: Windows 7 Reinstall Post HD Replacement - Setup Could Not Configure OS

Jan 1, 2015

My original hard drive of Acer aspire 5738G crashed and I bought a new 1 TB WD hard drive. I tried to reinstall Windows 7 from recovery disk. All data copy and system restoration (from 3 restoration disks) completed successfully. But after the auto reboot, during “Setup is applying system settings” stage I encountered error message “Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run this computer’s hardware”. I tried reinstalling the OS multiple times but every time I am getting the same error. Before replacing my hard drive, I was using Windows 7 Home Premium OEM version and now I was trying to restore the same in my system.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G And ATI Driver Update

Mar 6, 2009

I've got an Aspire 5920G with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 graphics card/chipset. Up until last week, I'd been running with whatever drivers had been installed when I originally purchased the laptop in October last year.

Vista's Windows Update told me of new drivers for the 3470 that had been released in January, so I promptly downloaded them, glad to have something a little more up-to-date, since the laptop is being used frequently as a lightweight gaming machine. The driver, according to Device Manager, is dated 15/01/2009, and is version number 8.580.0.0.

My problem now is that every time I boot the machine, an ATI warning appears reading the following:

"The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enable graphics adapter. Please update your ATI graphics driver, or enable your ATI adapter using the Displays Manager."..................

Acer :: Aspire 4752G Does Not Boot-up After Bios Update

Acer :: 5610 Will Not Post/boot

Mar 30, 2009

I am working on my brothers laptop.

Its an Acer 5610 that came with Vista.

He had a broken screen and a virus. I repaired his screen and he then took it to a "buddy" who partitioned the HD to save the pictures ect on it and put XP on the other partition.

My brother was updating drivers when he rebooted it and it just wouldn't restart.

This is a description of the problem:
"I hit the power button , lights come on (no HD light though). and the Fan spins for about 30 seconds and stops. After about 1 minute the fan starts back up and stays on.
Power light , battery charger light stay on but nothing happens."

I pulled the covers off the back and everything seems seated and where it belongs.

Recovery disks have been ordered (before I knew the full extent of the problem) and will be here in a week or so but I don't think they will do any good on a system that wont boot.

I have repaired a few desktops but this is my 1st laptop repair.

Acer :: 5315 Won't Post/boot

Dec 31, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 (Vista) that will not start. When you push the power button the power light comes on for 9 or 10 seconds then goes off. I've tried with/out the battery installed. I have held down the power button for 60 seconds without any power connected/installed. I have reseated the RAM. Tried a different AC Adapter, nothing.
Does the CMOS battery need changing?

Acer Aspire 5560g :: Failing To Boot After Firmware Update

Jan 28, 2015

So i recently upgraded my Aspire 5560g to Windows 8.1. I liked it but it seemed to have lost my drivers in the process (my track pad scrolling didnt work and my Dolby audio origram was gone).
 
I went to  for the drivers and decided to start with a firmware upgrade (9545 for hard disk performance). 
 
After the computer rebooted, I entered the dreaded Windows 8.1 boot loop. It would say "Your PC ran into problems..." with the bluescreen, then turn off. Then it would attempt the Automatic repair, and fail again, then restart the cycle.
 
I wasn't able to even get into my BIOS until I cleared my CMOS, now at least I can get into BIOS.
 
I created a bootable USB for Windows in hopes I could do a clean install, but even when trying to boot from a USB I get the blue Windows 8 screen, "Your PC ran into problems..."Is there a way I can undo the firmware update, it seems like the culprit, doesn't it? 
 
EDIT: I've read that the Windows boot loop may be caused by outdated drivers. Think this could be the problem after I did the firmware update? How can I install the drivers without being able to boot into Windows?

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Appears To Have 'died'

Jan 12, 2010

My Acer Aspire 5920G appears to have 'died' and I thought I'd try here before contacting Acer. Despite being under warranty, Acer have found loopholes to charge exorbitant fees every time something goes wrong.

the 2.5 year-old laptop was working perfectly last night. This morning, I opened it and:

T: Pressed power button
T+2secs: DVD drive clicks on, hard drive spins up, everything seems normal
T+5secs: NumLock light flashes, but visible POST/BIOS *does not appear*. The screen never shows anything.
T+8secs: Hard drive is still on but ceases activity. Operating system is not loaded.

(I took the timings at a subsequent attempt, but every attempt follows the same pattern)

I've tried:
- running from battery, AC and both
- reseating the memory modules
- replacing and removing the hard drive
- booting with a boot disk in the DVD drive
- booting with an external monitor attached

to no avail. From this end, I'm not sure what else I could try. Clearly there's no 'good' time for a laptop failure, but this is a pretty terrible time, so I was hoping to avoid Acer spending 6 weeks deciding how many hundreds to charge me.

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: No POST / Black Display

Oct 18, 2014

I purchased an Acer Aspire V3-772G-9822 laptop in August 2013.I had the original unit exchanged by the retailer due to a faulty screen (green line running down the display).
 
I also had the mainboard replaced near the end of the warranty period due to an internal fault with the power supply [case #3414447U].
 
I am now just outside the warranty period, with (ostensibly) a new mainboard, and the unit will not boot .
 
I have tried the remove-battery-and-power-supply-and-press-button exercise (resetting the power management IC, I presume) - no success. I have checked / re-seated / removed any / all / each internal SATA drives - no success. I have removed the memory (unit off) to see if I'd get a POST beep error message - no success ...

Acer Aspire V5 571 :: Does Not Get To POST - Keyboard Flashes And Fan Starts Then Nothing

Oct 31, 2014

I have a two year old V5 571, a week ago it stopped booting up when I pressed the power button. There are no beeps and the laptop doesn't boot as far as the POST screen.

 I've tried with battery and without and taken out the CMOS battery to reset it but still have the same problem.
 
 As it's only two years old I would hope the motherboard hasn't gone.

Acer Aspire V5-571G :: Windows 8.1 Update - Audio Not Working

Oct 18, 2014

I have an Aspire V5-571G... I updated to Windows 8.1 (64bit) a few days ago.
 
Since the update, when playing audio on iTunes (was 11.3 but now updated to 11.4 both post win 8.1 anyway)/Windows Media Player and on YouTube & other sites, audio has stopped working completely or become extremely distorted. Sometimes it works fine but never for extended periods of time. I'm not sure what triggers the distortion and silence but it has ONLY been happening since the 8.1 update.
 
I updated the RealTek sound drivers with the driver for my model from the Acer website and it has not improved the situation. I've been looking around for a solution / cause of the problem and the only questionable driver I have is this: There's no update for this on the Acer site r.e. my model and the Windows online update thing cannot find an update either.
 
If it's not possible to fix this via updating or tweaking 8.1, is it possible to do a system restore back to Win 8 without removing my files and if so how?

Acer Aspire 4752G :: Do Restart Instead Of Shutdown Since Windows 8.1 Update

Oct 4, 2014

I cannot turn off my acer laptop since windows 8.1 update.. whenever i do shutdown, it simply just restart after shutting down.. i dont know how to turn off my laptop.. also sleep and hibernate seems not functioning, in a couple of seconds it awakes again..
 
I tried the every thing about the power management to untick something about fast startup.. still no luck
 
And i forced to shutdown my laptop during startup but it cause me a problem.. It wont power on.. and it seems dead but when i plug the power adapter the battery is charging but no signs of powering up(no power led, just battery led) whenever i press the power button.. i tried dispersing the static electricty but no luck.. the only option that solve my problem on not powering up is to disassemble my laptop and remove cmos battery. then i assembled it back.. it shows 1 blink of power led whenever i plug in the ac adapter without the laptop battery plugin.. and then it powers up again after i press the power button.. what a relief.. but it doesnt fix my shutdown problem..
 
the only thing i havent tried is BIOS update.. but im having problem right now..
 
i tried last year to update my BIOS after that it went wrong the black "screen of death" they call.. so i sent my laptop to service center.. and it fixed!..
 
I tried lately to update my BIOS but it says that i have already an updated BIOS version 2.19.. i guess this is the bios version installed by service center.. how can i apply the BIOS posted on ACER website with the latest version 2.15?
 
If i want to turn off my laptop, i simply close the lcd monitor to remain it in sleep mode..

Acer :: Aspire 5750G / Hard Drive Capacity Appears To Be Shrinking

Feb 16, 2015

I have an Aspire 5750G that started out with 1TB of disk space. Now it says I only have 100GB free of ca. 650 GB! How did 1TB turn into 650 GB?! I've been trying to use Nero Backitup 2014 to back up my drive to my NAS, and couldn't - I think the capacity shrinkage is why. (Nero tells me there isn't room on my laptop to update, even though I'm trying to update FROM the laptop to the NAS. I went through the procedure with Nero Support, and they couldn't find out why it was happening.) I've done a disk defrag, but still haven't regained the missing capacity.

Model: Aspire 5750G

OS: Win7 64 Home

Problem: My 1TB capacity (not usage) appears to have shrunk to 650 GB.

Program troubles: Nero Backitup 2014 can't deal with the missing capacity, even when I try clearing out my NAS and doing a repeat backup. The exact error message is: It is not possible to sync because the space is full at this location: (My C: drive) Check the space and try again.

Tried: Defragging, no luck.
