My Aspire M (1.5 years old) was making a horrible noise, so I opened it up to find a very dirty fan. I cleaned the fan, but it still made noise. I bought a new fan and installed it. After closing it up and turning it on, it only gets to the ACER screen and then recycles.
I probably inadvertantly corrupted the BIOS, or is it something else? Can I flash the BIOS without having a working BIOS?
Recently I noticed that my touch screen sometimes starts to hits randomly at the bottom of the screen. This problem cause some windows became minimize and maximize on its own and when i'm watching video, the video keep pause, play and pause again. I tried to find any crack on the screen but found nothing.
When I turn on my laptop ,ocassionaly, the screen turns white. At first i thought it was a driver issue because it would only happen when windows loaded. But now it does it when i turn it on before windows starts loading, leading me to believe that this is a hardware issue. does anyone know what i should replace in the laptop inorder to fix this problem?
i've got an Acer Aspire 3613WLMi and the screen is faulty.
when i switch the laptop on the screen comes on full white and then fades slowly to the bios screen (no hdd installed right now). I put a windows vista installation cd in to test it further and it faded slowly to the installation screen, everything moved in slow motion, the mouse cursor moved across the screen really slowly and leaves a trail. I've replaced the ribbon cable and that hasn't fixed it, it's not a motherboard fault that i know of because i've plugged an external monitor in and that worked so i've narrowed it down to either being a fault with the lcd or with the inverter.
i'll try to get a video of what i'm trying the explain, it's difficult, the screen sort of fades into view in blotches and patches all over.
I've been plagued with this problem for the past month and a half at least, so much so that the laptop has spent the last 3 weeks with Acer and their technical support team in Plymouth (I only got it back last week).
The laptop was sent off with a fault to the screen. It intermittently flickers, mainly when the screen is moved, but sometimes not. The laptop was sent off to Acer 3-4 weeks ago and was returned last week. A report was returned with the laptop and reads as follows:
Problem Description: SYSTEM FUNCTION - SYSTEM FAIL TO FLASH BIOS
Repair Description: STORAGE - OPTICAL DEVICE WILL NOT READ/WRITE
Diagnosis/Repair Details: fitted new ODD and middle cover
As you can imagine, this report left me completely perplexed but I assumed that somewhere within that they had fixed the screen problem and left me with a fully functional laptop again. And of course I'd been without it for 3 weeks and just wanted to turn it on again!! lol (On a sidenote, I had asked them to check the disk drive also, because back when I first got it, it struggled to read any type of disk. This explains the apparent replacement disk drive)................
I have an Acer Aspire 1362i. Lately when I am working on the laptop, the screen has been going blank for no apparant reason. This can happen on startup, after 1, 5 or 10 minutes. where to start Troubleshooting this problem?
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.
I have an Acer aspire 6930G home theatre system. The screen has been cracked and needs to be replaced. Can anyone help with either instruction on how to remove the screen. Any help would be much appreciated.
I have got the top and sides of the front bevel off, but I cannot see how to get the bottom off and I do not want to damage it.
When I use to plug my laptop into the mains you could see the screen got a lot brighter as though it was a power surge. For some reason that no longer happens the display is quite dull and tough to read unless in a dark room!
There was a distinct difference to screen brightness between 'High performance' and 'Power saver' mode. This is no longer the case and the laptop seems stuck in power saver brightness!
I have an Aspire 5610 with 2G ram running vista home premium. I had a few explorer windows open, and was getting memory warnings. I shut a few windows down, and a few hours later, the screen turned blank. I reboot the computer, but the problem persists. Now it turns out if I remove the power supply, and run it on battery, everything is fine. As soon as I instert the power supply chord, screen goes blank (black). Upon removing the power supply, if I shut and open the screen, it works again (and it also shows me a warning message that the wireless is in use, and if I really want to turn the antenna off).
The screen obviously is fine, as it runs fine on battery. I don't understand what is happening as soon as I insert the power supply, and why upon removing the power supply, I get a warning on turning off the antenna.
just got my replacment 1810tz. last book had some trouble with the keyboard. now the brand new just wont boot up. has some fan blowing and once harddisc access and then nothing. i already tried Fn + F5/F6 keys, no result. also attached via hdmi to monitor - but not any flickering. even let it lay there for some hours wiithout batterypack attached. no result.
how to remove the bios battery, maybe this could solve it...?
Had my Acer Aspire 8930 for 11 months now and I've always assumed it displayed images at 1920 x 1080 because of the blu ray drive and the fact it has a sticker on the front of the laptop which says 'FULL HD 1080 PLAYBACK'.
I've just gone into my display settings and it says 1680 x 945!
That is on the highest setting possible.
The sticker on the side of the box it came in says;
Aspire 8930G - 584G32Bn which according to [url] states at the top in the summary it boasts 1920 x 1080.
How can the sticker on my laptop claim full HD at 1080? Do I have the wrong screen on my laptop or am I missing something?
if anybody knows whats going on, i've got an ACER 5810T, just upgraded to windows 7, and ive noticed that when the laptop is not plugged into the mains, every now and then the screen fades for a few seconds and then comes back. The strange thing is, the screen doesnt fade to darkness, instead it is as if the contrast changes before returning to normal again.
The display on my laptop was working fine. I have reinstalled windows 8 64x on my v5-471. On startup the "acer" screen and windows symbol display perfectly, but once it boots into windows, the screen looks fuzzy, with everything ghosted/ duplicated. It works fine on an external monitor. I have installed the intel drivers manually from their website and tried uninstalling them and letting windows find the new driver itself, to no avail.
These are the drivers I have tried installing manually: [URL] .....
It is the same issue as seen in this video: [URL] .....
My aspire s3 screen suddenly goes black. When I connect it to HDMI I can see the display on the HDMI device. When I disconnect HDMI the screen display comes back but again goes black after some time. It is a hardware problem or some settings to be done. This display problem happens when I restart or power on the note book.
My acer aspire v5 is on black screen. This happened when i forced it to shutdown while a disk check up is on progress, coz it stuck up for about an hour it didn't even move an inch. my function keys are not working.
2 days ago I had trouble accessing the internet on my E1-570. Windows Explorer kept throwing up a fault and restoring the page. Eventually I loaded Safari and then Firefox and resolved to sort the problem with Windows Explorer some time in the future. This may be unrelated to what happened the next night. Started the E1 and got the usual "Acer, Explore beyond limits" screen and spinning dots, then got the login screen - input password then return. Spinning dots for much longer than usual then blank screen. I can see the cursor arrow so the screen itself must be functioning. Lights on the front are working - AC, battery and HDD. I have had the machine 14 months and it is used exclusively at home so has not been roughly treated.
