Acer Aspire E5-571P-590A :: Flight Mode Won't Switch Off - Greyed Out And Is ON
Nov 17, 2014
Flight mode won't switch off - it's greyed out and is ON.I've Googled the issue and an upgrade to the BIOS was recommended - it took me from 2.6 to 2.9 (I think) but still stuck on flight mode so no network connections to my printer etc. This is a fairly new machine. Upgraded to Windows 8.1.
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.
Till now, my G510 with Win7 64 bit worked perfectly but after going into flight mode and coming back, it no longer recognizes any internet sources, wired or wireless.
Windows troubleshooter says I need to 'turn on wireless capability'. I don't see a wireless hardware switch anywhere on the laptop, fn+f5 does nothing and in the panel for the flightmode, only bluetooth appears (which I can also activate). The device manger says all of the network devices are working normally. I tried reinstalling the latest drivers from Lenovo, but that didn't do anything either. The Windows Mobility Center says that the wireless is turned off, but the 'turn wireless on' button is greyed out and is not able to be clicked.
In an earlier post, it was suggested to check if in "services.msc" the "WLAN AutoConfig" function is activated which is in my case true. WIFI is also activated in the BIOS.
Last thing I tried, was to bring with windows recovery the system back into a state where everything worked fine but also that did not work.
screen froze - could not find mouse pointer. turned latop off and when restarted it said need to repair okayed but said it could not repair. Did refresh, it said to uptdate, 95 updates! said configuring then failed to configure, says confiruring and again failed - keeps repeating itself. took battery our pressed power 20 seconds - restarted. keeps happening. managed to get to repair again but would not - refresh in in progress AGAIN!
Today I bought a new Acer Aspire E5, and in the store the dependent tell me that RAM is upgradable through an additional empty memory slot available inside the laptop. But, how I can upgrade it? I mean, in the back of the laptop I don't see any compartment or cover to remove for access the RAM slots... So, how I can access to the additional empty slot and upgrade the RAM?
I have an Aspire v5-571P Touch, running Windows 8.1, and for two years it's been awesome! But recently, it's stopped displaying low battery alerts. I've tried going to the Control Panel, Power Options, and using a different power plan. I've made sure that all of the power plans' advanced power settings are as follows (after a suggestion of upping the low battery level from 10% to 20%):
Critical battery action: On battery: Hibernate Low battery level: On battery: 20%Critical battery level: On battery: 5%Low battery notification: On battery: On Low battery action: On battery: Do nothing (Sleep, Hibernate, and Shut Down are the other options)Reserve battery level: On battery: 9%
I've read an article that suggested updating the BIOS, though there's also a red warning on that page of the Acer website; "Upgrading your system BIOS incorrectly could harm your Acer Product. Please proceed with caution." So I was apprehensive. Any way before I attempt updating the BIOS.
I am considering buying the Aspire E5-571P-52QK. Images I have seen show either a DVD drive or a blank cover. It would make sense that these images are not of the actual product, or that you should be able to add an optical drive. However, I do not know that. Nothing, anywhere, shows what the truth on this model is.
can I add a drive to this? Yeah, I can get an external, but I want an internal.
Got a new E5-571P-55TL yesterday and going through the setup process I got all the way to where it says downloading apps. It displayed a message that it was processing or I forget what it said exactly. Then the words went away after about an hour. I remember reading that it said it may do this, may have a blank screen and not to turn it off. I left it on all night and still have just a green screen this morning. I know my wifi is not the fastest and figured that's what it was. Came to work today and left it sitting on the counter, still on.
I can run in safe mode and in stamina mode all day long, however when I switch to Speed mode after a few secs the screen goes black and the notebook just turns off. Anyone have any ideas? I am at a total loss. I have tried a complete restore and also tried Natius drivers.
I just installed windows 7 on my SR190. The fn volume keys work but my brightness keys don't. Also, the vaio mode switch isn't starting up. something about application failure. Is there a specific order for the driver installation?
my laptop,VGN-Z720D/B, can't switch to speed mode without restarting computer, which means I need to switch mode by turning off or restarting the laptop, I updated the BIOS and graphic drivers and reinstalled the whole OS by using recovery disc, it still doesn't work. Is it possible the hardware problem?
I want to buy the acer aspire switch 10 , it's really awesome for me , but I have a question how could I write on onenote known that the stylus is almost useless , so is there any digitizer pen compatible with this product or not ....
Recently I installed Windows 8.1 instead of Win7 on my IdeaPad S205. The problem is that the new Lenovo Energy Management tool doesn't let me swith the mode "Best Battery Heath". Everytime I click on it, it is automatically switched back on the "Maximum Battery Life" setting.
I also didn't find any tool where I can set my preferences (Best Battery Healt as standard). I have never had this problem on Windows 7.
Just finished installing all drivers in Win XP but I can't get the HDMI audio to work.
When I go to "Control Panel" then "Sounds and Audio" and change to "NVIDIA HDMI Audio" the volumebar is down at its lowest and the entire bar is "greyed out". Also if I play some music I hear a "thumping" sound from my TV:s speakers.
The driver I am using is 188.8.131.52 taken directly from the drivercd that I burned out together with recoverydiscs so its an "orginal" Acer (although Vista) driver.
I have also tried 184.108.40.206 to no luck.
My graphic driver is 180.70 with the modded .inf from Laptopvideo2go.
The other device is "Realtek HD Audio output" and it works fine, that driver ought to be me primary audio driver if I'm not misstaken.
when my girlfriend tries to switch on the above laptop it seems to boot up but there is just a blank, black screen. If you look very, very closely the desktop display seems to be there but we don't know how to change the colour/contrast etc. Is it as simple as that do you think or is the problem deeper. I've tried everything I can think of; I've thrown water over it, hit it with the cat and punched it. None seem to work.
How to zoom (increase text size) on the aspire switch 10? My other computers have a settings for this, Also, where can I get a user's manual. They are requesting a number I neither can find, or can't understand where it is, or can't read even with a magnifing glass.
I'm currently using Acer Aspire V5-573G, which uses Nvidia GT750M.
Whenever I run games or graphics-intensive program such as the adobe premier pro, the program will continue to run using the Intel HD graphics and not the Nvidia driver.
I've tried changing the settings in the Nvidia control panel to use Nvidia graphics driver for all programs, but running the optimus tool will show me that the Nvidia GPU is not being used for any of the programs.
