Acer :: Aspire ES1-511 / Mouse Doesn't Work After Booting From The CD
Nov 4, 2014
Just bought an Aspire ES1-511. Not my first Windows 8.1 laptop, but my first with UEIF firmware.
I've been trying to boot Driveimage from CD to do an offline backup, and guess what, it wouldnt recognise the CD as bootable. Fixed that by setting the boot type to "Legacy" in the BIOS and it boots fine.
My problem is that the mouse doesnt work after booting from the CD. Watching the behaviour of the mouse, it powers up when I press the power button, but powers off immediately the POST completes.
If booting Windows from the HD, power to USB is restored as soon as windows loads to the lock screen.
I have also already tried turning off and on again the "turn off mouse pad" button that the computer has. And it's only sometimes when I boot up the computer it won't responed, then I have to turn it off and turn it back on again in order for it to work.
tried to upgrade my Latitude E5510 from 2x2Gb (factury Samsung) to 2x4Gb Corsair CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9. BIOS updated to Rev. A13, latest. Memory is recognized as 8Gb. But booting into Windows7 X64 doesn't work anymore. If I boot from a Lubuntu CD (x86) it runs, naturally only with approx. 4Gb since this is a x86 OS-version. Windows 7 X64 just reboots. If I use Save Mode a reboot occurs when the loading of "ClassPnP.sys" starts. When I put in the old 2x2Gb everything works perfectly. Can't even get into Windows Setup from a clean DVD.
I bought precision m6700 and WM713 wireless mouse.I turned on my mouse, connected to my precision by usb which came with mouse, and it paired with my computer, device and printers shows there is WM713 wireless touchmouse. But after these steps my mouse didnt work. Mouse was turned on but doesnt track my pointer or click every role of mouse. Im using windows 7 64 bit. And when i go toWM713 wireless touch mouse application, There was battery level section but it says not connected, but i already connected my mouse by usb to my precision.
i recently upgraded my g500 from windows 8 to windows to 8.1. But ever since then, my mouse does not work and the keyboard only works after standby. I tried to restore to factory defaults but that hasnt worked.
is i got a new Aspire E3-111 that has 2GB of ram, and i want to put one of my 4GB ram stick into my laptop but it doesnt work, the ram is the same type but it doesnt work. also the laptop freezes up when i play ME3 for more then 1 hour and i have to do a hard restart... i also made a video showing whats going on
MY left shift key only work for certain keys but my right shift key doesn't work at all, i tried OSK and when i click the shift and press the key to shift its ok but when i press my right shift doesnt work
The Fn+F3 combination on my Acer Aspire One D270 doesn't work. I have wireless internet but the Wi-Fi led is red and I can't turn it on and off. Also the combination Fn+left/right arrow which makes the screen dimmer or brighter doesn't work either. One more thing: does this model have a bluetooth device? I should mention that the OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.
My wife's Aspire One 725 went down a couple of months ago with a bad hard drive. Of course, I hadn't maed a recovery USB. I finally ordered one from the Store, and tried it out tonight. I set the boot order to USB HDD, and, well, nothing happens! First, I see a cursor in the top left corner, and then I see the little circle of balls wait indicator, but i never get any other screen! Could I have a bad USB media from ACER?
I use V3-371-59M8 which model is for windows8 OS only but I use it w/ windows7 OS and it works well but bluetooth doesn't work at all.I got and installed BT drivers(Atheros or intel or Broadcom) for widnows7 but couldn't find any BT devices.
What is the BT adaptor brand (Atheros or intel or Broadcom??) of the model.
i have a ACER Travelmate 2482WXMi, i have done a fresh install of windows XP home, i have done a full format of the hard drive, but i have issues the touchpad will not work only in safe mode. I have installed most of the drivers through safe mode, but the mouse will only work when i connect an external mouse when it's in normal mode.
Also i do get some bad sectors on the hard drive, and it takes over 2mins to shut down the comp. I havent installed programs yet, except PC Wizard 2008. Also the laptop is not the base model with 512MB ram i have added a 1gb stick and it works fine. I am thinking maybe its the hard drive. If
I have an aspire5734z laptop and can no longer control the volume with the Fn up arrow/down arrow buttons. Have no display of vol,wireless or cap lock any more. I've been through everything I can think of in control panel and can't find an answer.
I just got my Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G-75NJ today and I find that the backlit keyboard doesn't work... I type Fn + F9, and no reaction at all. I wonder if there has any solutions or I have to send it back. Also, I found that there has a tape written with "Opened" on the case... I wonder what is that mean... Moreover... why there has a paper lip stuck in the gap on the surface... But the biggest problem is how can I activate the backlit keyboard?
I’ve just purchased an Acer Aspire E3 112 that came with Windows 8.1 with Bing. I have a good bootable USB stick with 14.04 on it, from which I have installed several times on different machines. Here’s what I did:
Created unallocated space on the HDD within Windows Booted from the USB Clicked on "Install" Chose "Something else" in the next dialog Created a / partition, a "Home" partition and a Swap area. Clicked on "Install"
The install went just like any other install that I’ve done over the last few years. When it finished, I clicked on the "Restart" button. The machine restarts, and goes straight into Windows. No sign of the Ubuntu install at all.
If I examine the HDD in Disk management within Windows, there are no formatted partitions in the unallocated space at all. (I’ve tried the same procedure both with Ubuntu 14.04 and Xubuntu 14.10 - both had the same result). Windows 8.1 with Bing is no different at all to “normal” Windows 8.1 ....
This is absolutely crazy. The laptop came back to me in worse shape than it was sent off. C drive was wiped, several very large scratches that were not there before, and the CD drive simply does not work. I tried loading in a CD-R at first, and it didn't recognise it, though it might be the CD. Having the CD in at startup actually slowed down the whole boot sequence immsenely.
Since then I've tried it with several different CDs, DVDs, whatever and none of them work. The DVD drive just chugs a long and never gets anywhere.
I can't afford to send this back to be fixed now because 3 weeks was an insane time for me to be without a laptop. How costly/difficult would it be for me to replace the DVD drive myself?
Under control panel: mouse properties tab hardware, there is no mouse shown. The same with device manager, there is no mouse listed. Changing mouse settings has no effect. There is still no mouse pointer, even though I can see it move when I hover over icons, I can click, and I can locate the pointer when I press ctrl (radar symbol). As soon as I plug in an external mouse, the mouse point appears, a mouse appears under mouse properties hardware, and I can move the pointer via touch pad also.
My memory card reader was fine, however after reinstalling Vista Ultimate it won't work.
It shows up as "Texas Instruments PCIxx21 Integrated FlashMedia Controller" in Device Manager. However I've tried multiple SD cards and it just won't recognize that anything has been inserted. The computer doesn't pause or show any indication that it's doing something when I insert a memory card.
I have a Ferrari 4006WLMi with Windows Vista Ultimate.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers several times already. I have also upgraded to the latest BIOS
I need to use a 4GB SDHC card as RAM via Readyboost...
I have a VGA plug in my Dell Inspiron 1545 and when I plug in the cord it doesnt work. I have another laptop and I used the same cord and it works. So I guess my VGA doesnt work, what do I have to get to replace the VGA in my laptop?
I have sent an e-mail to Acer but, as I bought my laptop in Dixons (UK retail shop) they told me that I need to speak to the "Tech Guys". These "tech Guys" are.... well...
THICK as S*** and don't usually give you any help whatsoever. Their advice was something like... it is not our fault, contact Microsoft as they are the one who developed W7...?
Anyway, moving forward, my problem is that, since I installed W7 x64 (clean install) the volume throttle does not work. I am unsure what the driver for this function is. I have tried re-installing the Synaptics drive, the Realteck HD drive...
last year i formated my acer 9500 laptop and got a normal home win xp. A couple of days ago i got a hold of my original acer system cds and i decided to restore my system back.
Everything went well until the install finished; I was in windows and the first time i restarted the laptop it didnt boot back in win xp. When its about to start booting windows it stops and all i get is a black screen and a flickering white small line on the top line. I tried reinstalling the original system again and the same thing happends; after the first restart it doesnt want to boot xp.
I started reading forums and found out that if i press alt+f10 it might fix the problem.
It worked, if i press alt f10 before it reaches the black screen it loads into xp. This is the only way i can load it. As i read i got the feeling i might have messed up my MBR.
Im not sure how this all works but i have a hunch that my laptop doenst know where my xp is when its supposed to load it and by pressing alt f10 it somehow temporarly fixes that.
Is there any way to permanently fix this ? Some pple said that if i ran a normal non-acer win xp cd and ran some sort of MBR fix it might solve my problems. Im getting a cd from a friend in a couple of days . Is there any other way i can fix my notebook before then ?
Its not a big deal if i have to press alt f10 everytime i restart but its annoying and i have a hunch ill run into trouble later on.
I have a brand new Acer Aspire 5536 Notebook. It came pre-shipped with Vista which I did not want.
So I tried a fresh install of Win7 - formatted drive etc,. Machine takes 5+ mins to boot so I put this down to a compatibility issue and tried XP. However I have the same problem, fresh install with only updates installed and it takes forever to boot (even longer than Win7).
Once booted performance is ok (in Win7 it was near perfect). Any ideas, I am beginning to think it is defective.
Acer Aspire 7720 I've got. Basically it has both the common boot-up freeze and crackly/distorted sound problems that appear to be common. I understand that the best, albeit riskiest, way to solve these is to flash the bios to a more recent version, which I am prepared to do.
However - the bios upgrades are not available from Acer's own support site, and I don't know where else I can find them, and I have tried.... Is there anyone who can help me locate them? The problems with this laptop are driving me spare, and I really can't afford another, or even another motherboard, just yet.
I have had my acer aspire 6530 since August 2009 now. It never had any major problems. Sadly, after comming back from New Years Eve 2014, I wanted to turn it on, but it just started up for around 4 seconds and then started to reboot again and continued so, until power was plugged out or shut down. There was only a black screen, without BIOS etc.I've searched forums for a solution, all of whom resulted in failure.
