Acer Aspire E5-511:: Can't Get Into Laptop - Won't Accept Passwords After Sleep Mode
Nov 10, 2014
I have just bought the above laptop and gone through the setup. I've only input 2 passwords, both of which I've written down and it appeared to have set up okay. Unfortunately, the laptop lid got shut down and it won't accept either of the passwords I've written down.
I just purchased an Aspire V5-561PG laptop. It has Windows 8.1 installed. I'm encountering a very frustrating problem with it and it seems to be a very common problem after searching on various tech forums. I am not able to get the laptop out of sleep mode once it goes into that mode. It's gone into sleep mode via inactivity, closing the laptop lid and by pressing Function+F4. I cannot get it to wake after each of these instances. The only thing I can do is hold down the power button to manually shut it down and then press the power button again to restart it. I'm not even 100% sure it's going into sleep mode with any of the 3 above scenarios. The screen goes black as you would expect but the lights in the bottom, front of the laptop are still all lit up. I would expect the lights to turn off when it's in sleep mode (maybe I'm wrong about that). I've changed the video drivers multiple times and that hasn't worked. I have the latest BIOS installed.
I have an Acer Aspire One with OS Win XP. This morning I went in the Power Management and decided to try Hibernate. I went away for a moment. When I returned, the On Switch was still green, but nothing worked. Black screen, HD dead like everything else. I tried F-Alt-F4 to no avail !
First I thought it was the contact problem with the power adapter then I fixed that problem. Now it simply turns on and and does nothing. After awhile even the fan comes on properly. But the laptop has no pic nothing no hardrive movement nothing.
When I am working on my laptop off battery power and I shut the monitor without shutting the pc down, at times it seems like the pc is in sleep mode but will not respond. I have to (I guess you would call it hard start it), reboot it to get it working again. Usually the screen is black when I reopen my laptop. Today, browser was barely visible. What is going on with my pc?
My Acer Aspire 4720 has an annoying CPU fan "on/off/on/off" behaviour that is impossible to control via software, so I wired it up with a resistor internally, soldering to a USB +5V header. The fan itself works great, but ...
The USB power (and thus the fan) stays on when I put the laptop into "sleep" mode. In Hibernation, it turns off as normal.
How can I make the USB power turn off when in normal "sleep" mode?
I have an Aspire 5517 running Windows 7. When on battery power, the computer will not go to sleep if it is playing any audio or video file through the speakers. Pause the stream and the computer will sleep as normal on power saver options, but if I leave it playing on battery power computer will not sleep or hibernate. When battery reaches critical level computer will not shut down and I have to restart windows later. This seems like a problem with a driver.
So, I've had this problem from some time now. When I put my switch 10 to sleep, and then re-open it, the keyboard is not working anymore, like it has problem recharging drivers. Same issue happens sometime when I use it in tablet mode and then reconnect the dock to it, I've a very hard time trying to make the keyboard and touchpad working again. The fact is that the usb port on the dock doesn't seem to have any problem at all, only the touchpad and the keyboad. I can't figure out if that's a software or an hardware problem.
I am getting a new hp laptop dv7t and in the past I have pretty much always kept my laptop in sleep mode when it was not in use. If I was going to not use it for a couple of days then I would turn it off. It is always plugged in since it is pretty much a desktop laptop.
What is the best practice for a always plugged in laptop?
I have recently purchased an HP ENVY 15t-j100 Quad Edition CTO Notebook Windows 7 Professional (PC Product #: E1P05AV). I'll usually close the lid to put it into sleep mode when I have to do something else. But when I open it back up, it has the "Start windows normally or safe mode" sreen. I've noticed that this only happens after a certain amount of time of being in sleep mode. If I wake it up prior to that, it works just fine. I hope that this can be resolved since this is a brand new laptop.
I recently sold my Aspire 5002 WLMi notebook to a friend who changed too many settings and mussed up the BIOS in record time.... 10 days. I got most back by using a restore point but noticed he had a BIOS password requirement for booting up. I went to change that and set the new password with blank fields....save and quit....reboot....
...and whoops. Neither does a blank field nor his old password work now. in hindsight, I recall it was odd how some of his BIOS options had been greyd out and realized he must have a supervisor and another BIOS password. Swears he doesnt remember what he did. Now, we're locked out with 3 tries and error code 00000.
I removed the CMOS battery but unlike desktops I've messed with, I cant find any jumpers or marked pads to short out. Read somewhere that Acer now uses some form of flash memory. I cant find any documentation on this and Acer hasnt answered my email. Most of their sites dont even list this version of laptop. I bought it in Amsterdam at the end of 2005 but their Netherlands site is only in Dutch, a language I cant begin to decipher.
Anyone have ideas on this or possibly a motherboard schematic with lables? I looked at lists for Acer MB's and theres not a single number printed on here that resembles those lists I found.
I put my laptop on sleep by closing the lid but after some time when I open the lid it doesn't show any display. I tried to on the laptop by pressing power button but it doesn't responding. I bought it around 4 months ago.
I've read other forums on similar issues, but I can't seem to find one that matches mine exactly.
System: Y410p with 1tb hdd 24gb ssd intel i7-4700 8gb ram 64x windows 8.1 (came installed)
Problem: When I put the computer into sleep mode, it goes into sleep mode without issue. It has stayed in sleep mode for a maximum of 8 hours, but usually before it hits this long the system will turn on. It seems to run random processes and overclock the processor as the computer gets very hot. It will do this until the battery dies, or if plugged in, indefinitely.
While it is doing this I have opened the lid, pressed every key, including power, with no response. Once, and only once, upon pressing the space bar, it had actually come to the unlock screen as though it truly was in sleep (except it was still overheating and on). Otherwise my only option is hard shut down.
I've just gone around it for a while now by shutting down every time and not using sleep. But today I had put it in sleep, and placed it in my backpack where it nearly cooked itself to death.I have tried:
-I have checked the wake_armed, which currently display NONE -I have checked last_wake -I have fiddled with hybrid shutdown.
Just purcased Aspire E1-510-2611 - 64 bit, Windows 8.1 - as it was set up in store as display model it appears to be in "Display Mode" - with account already entered, etc. How do I reset to factory defaults so that when I turn it on it is just like turning it on for the first time or is there a better way to get back to the "just out of the box" condition?
I have a Inspiron 14R for about a year and half now. This computer has done this since day one for some reason:
When I put the 14R in SLEEP mode, the computer remains in sleep mode for about 2-3 hours, then the computer shuts itself off, or goes into hibernation mode on it's own. The computer has Windows 7 Premiuim.
I have the power saving modes all set too SLEEP, and none in hibernation in any of the selections. I cannot for the life of me why this computer does this. I have a Lenovo I bought about a year later using Windows 7 Premium with all the same settings in the POWER section, and while in sleep mode, it STAYS in SLEEP mode, no matter the length of time in that mode. Any setting I need to turn off, and where to find it?
I Have a vostro 1510 Laptop. when I wanted to clear the BIOS password, at the "new password" part, I dont enter enything and save it.after restart the computer not accept the old password nor accept the new password (blanks).
I have downgraded this laptop to Windows 7 x64 (from Win8 x64), all was successful except the wifi drivers.
The driver installer supplied from HP just crashes and manually extracting and forcefully installing drivers results in a blue screen crash. I have also tried whom I beleive to be the chipset manufacturer, Ralink, for drivers but I get a "device could not start" error.
It should also be noted that I have a few other unknown devices which may be impeding progress but I could just be clutching at straws.
Acer 9300 won't startup after going into sleep mode, on a restart or being powered on.
I press the power button and you can hear activity but a black screen
The only way I can get it to properly power ON is to press power button and press F2; sometimes it takes several attempts to boot up. It sometimes goes to the 'setup' screen and I exit and have success but most of the time it will go to the normal windows startup.
Looking through this forum it looks like a Motherboard issue? Would to have more input from all
thought that hibernate was better because it turns off the computer and saves battery except on my laptop the power button is defaulted to sleep so I would have thought that they would default it to that for a reason.
I have a HP pavillion dv9610us Notebook which i never really have had issues with until now. As of this past week, when I close my lid and the notebook goes to sleep it is getting so friggin hot now when I come back to use it when before it never did.
Has anyone have problem with sleep mode under vista hp? My Compaq is able to sleep first time while I am away for extended period but it will not sleep again when i am away again it stay awake forever.
