Acer Aspire M5-581T :: Battery Not Detected - When Unplugged Computer Shut Down Completely
Nov 20, 2014
I have an Aspire M5-581T. In March of 2014, the battery suddenly stopped working. It would not charge, the unit would not boot from the battery, and if I unplugged the computer from the AC outlet it shut down completely.
I own an Acer Aspire M5-581T.Everything with it works fine except this one problem.While I am using it on battery (i.e. not charging), it shuts off unexpectedly. If the charger is connected, it runs just fine. No unexpected shut offs.
I own an Acer Aspire M5-581T.Everything with it works fine except this one problem.While I am using it on battery (i.e. not charging), it shuts off unexpectedly. If the charger is connected, it runs just fine. No unexpected shut offs. Is it battery related issue? should replacing the batter fix it?
I have an Aspire M5-581T and all USB devices that I plug into any USB ports comes up with the mesage that "The USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi Speed 2.0 port". When I check Device Manager it is showing a whole list of USB Device Drivers (See Below). Do I just delete all but the USB 3.0 Device Drivers??
My computer (acer P653-V) is starting itself after shutting it down. Not right away - it takes some random time - sometime hours. In BIOS WAKE ON LAN is disabled. OS is windows 7 and at network adapter configuration - wake on magic packet and all of that is disabled.
Don't understand how is it possible? It is getting little bit creepy and disruptive already.
I've been working on this issue on my own for about a week now. I'm not entirely sure how to start explaining, so I'll just do a rundown of the noticable issues.
Hovering over the speaker icon gives me the text, "No speakers or headphones are plugged in." I use the internal speakers, and I always have my headphones plugged in. Audio playback troubleshooting doesnt give me anything (though at one point during my progress, it said that my audio device was disabled.)
Device management has been confusing at best. I can't seem to get the Realtek W8.1 drivers to properly download, even after finding the Acer-support driver.
My HP Pavilion DV6 6120us freezes during shut down. Windows looks like it goes through the shut down process and the screen goes black but the mousepad border light stays on and the wifi (f12) button goes orange. The only way to completely shut it down is to hold the power button for a few seconds. Once I start it up again, it says Windows wasn't shut down properly. After a few days of this, now the laptop battery isn't being detected.
I went into the BIOS and run the onboard memory test and hard drive test but both passed. I haven't done a reinstall of the Windows yet but with the battery issue now I am thinking it could be the motherboard but I'm hoping it's something else as it's out of warranty. I'm running Windows 7 Home SP1 64-bit edition.
I've had this laptop for the best part of two months now and it has been excellent up to now. However, it has now shut down completely 4 times within the same day - with absolutely no warning. It doesn't feel as if it has overheated but I'm only touching the outer shell.
I have an acer M3 581T which I bought about a year ago. Now, windows crashed and said there was a file missing. I am no longer able to boot up the system, I've tried the erecovery (alt f10) but it just proceeds and says it's not able to boot. I have no recovery cd/usb at hand. It is of my understanding that this ultrabook has two harddrives. One SSD on which the operating system is installed and one HDD with the other files on.What do I do to make it work again? I do not care if all my files are lost.
My Dell N5110 has started not stutting down completely although it looks like it has shut down the power light is still on and I have to press the power light for about 10 sec to get it to go off. Also if I am working on the laptop and just shut the lid it won't wake up when I open the lid Have tried pushing every button but nothing happens Have to press the power button to shut down and then restart. I have changed all the power settings many times but nothing fixes the problem.
I've recently bought an Acer Aspire 6930G and am overall very pleased with it.
However, in the few weeks since i've bought it there has been one concern I have had.
Whenever the laptop is unplugged from the mains, it starts to make a faint buzzing sound. The sound seems to come from the 'tube' near the subwoofer on the back (where the power socket is on one side, and the Kensington Lock is on the other side). The buzzing also only seems to be coming from the right side of the laptop above the number pad.
What is also strange is that i am able to stop the buzzing by tipping the laptop sideways or moving the screen. This seems to indicate that something might be vibrating, but again only when the power cord is unplugged?
Like i say, i don't think its enough to take the laptop back (unless somebody tells me differently), but i am concerned enough to ask on here if anyone with the same or similar laptop has any ideas as to why this might be happening.
Seriously sick of randomly clicking because my hands are too fat. I know that my previous dell had an option where it would automatically shut off the trackpad if an external mouse was detected. Is that available on the 13?
I got an E1-572G Acer Laptop and I'm having a problem with it.When I press SHUT DOWN the screen goes black but the power led is on.. and I can't turn it ON because I have to press the POWER BUTTON for about 5 seconds then all the led-s turn off and then I can start it. I searched on Google, made a few changes in settings (FAST STARTUP, etc) but I'm having still the same problem. I have this problem about 2 weeks, and I'm really nervous about it.
after reinstall, about 3 weeks ago when i played game i get my CPU and Mainboard to 90C. In 2 minutes, my computer shut down, i tried to start computer by power button, but it shut down in 1 sec... just flashing. After 1 minute i started computer..I upgraded BIOS, install recommended drivers also i have cooling pad which i using on HDDs.
OS: Windows 8 x64..I think it's HDD or Mainboard overheating or maybe CPU, because it has 85C too.
I am using a HP Pavilion DV4 series laptop for the past 18 months. Till now, it has worked fine. Nowadays when i disconnect the main power adapter once the laptop battery has charged to 100%, the battery indicator shows immediately that only 72% charge available..If i plug the adapter again, it again shows that 100% fully charged..
I'm having a problem with my Dell Vostro 3550 Core i5, completely shut down Windows, screen off completely, but the power light and the keyboard still light, until the battery is completely discharged.
I think the reason is the OS I'm using (Windows 8), I have changed the operating system (win7) but the problem is not fixed, I checked the hardware it still works fine
I bought a sony vaio laptop a little over 2 years ago. I never had a problem untill about 4 monthes ago. I got the "blue screen of death". It said something about the BIOS but would never stay on long enough for me to totaly read it. I went to Best Buy and asked if they had any ideas.
The guy said to contact Sony and get a recovery disk, so i did. I ran the cd but half way through it I got another blue screen that read:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time youve seen this stop error screen, follow these steps: Check to be sure you have adequate disk space .....
My computer is about a year old. When I turn it on, it will Go to the home screen & then it will go to a blue screen with a message that says a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to the computer. Technical Information: STOP: 0x0000007E .How can I fix this so I can get back on to use my computer?
Have this laptop a couple of months for sons schoolwork. Now it wont stay on unless power cord in. When its on, verything goes fine, it battery icon says its at 98%avaliable (plugged in, not charging). As soon as cord is out, it dies completely no power even when start button pushed.
I have an Aspire E1-572 that is five months old, running Win 8.1. I've loved the notebook to this point, but now the speakers have quit working completely (the headphone jack still works). I called tech support and they had me delete and reinstall the driver (Realtech high definition audio), which made no difference.
She then told me the next step is to refresh my Windows installation, which will apparently blow away everything I've installed since it was new. I declined to do that because I really don't want to spend an entire day reinstalling all the programs, even though I have the data backed up. Is this truly the only way to make a final determination if it's a hardware or software problem?
I have an Acer 8920G Win 7 Pro which is randomly shutting down only in when connected to 'AC' power. It does not happen when using 'battery' alone or in 'safe mode'. I've tried,investigated, and corrected all overheating issues, cleaned fans, changed AC power supplies, disabled graphics card, to no avail. All drivers are up to date. This has been happening over a period of 3 months now. Can not use the laptop except when battery is charged or in safe mode.
Aspire 7540-1284 Shut it down. Went to turn it on and the blue lights are working but it just lets me know the Hd is there but then gets quiet - nothing shows on the screen. It's 5 years old and I just reinstalled Win 7 Pro this week. I removed the battery. Same thing. I put the HD in an external case and hooked it up to another laptop and it is fine.
About three months ago I was using my laptop and it was working fine and I closed it and set it aside, not plugged in. My power settings were that nothing happened other than the screen turns off when I close the lid. Well the next day I went to use my laptop and i opened it and hit the power button but it was dead, so I plugged it in and pressed the power button and still nothing happened. The only way I can turn the laptop on is to use the small battery reset button on the back of the computer. Once it turns on it starts up no problem, nothing out of the ordinary. When I use it and try to shut it down regardless of whether I press the power button or go to the power button on the menu to shut it down it goes through the shutdown and the monitor shuts off for about 3 seconds and then the computer turns back on.
I have done everything I can think of to get the computer to work. I have reinstalled windows 8.1 from a disk after completely restoring my laptop. I opened the computer up and disconnected the battery for a few minutes, I tried to start the laptop in safe mode, I reinstalled the BIOS, I have run all the troubleshooting and run windows update to make sure everything is up to date.
I bought the Acer Aspire v3-771G. I've had no problems with it, but lately it shuts down randomly without any warning, like a power cut. I've checked the CPU Temps and overheating is not the problem. The computer sits on a Targus cooling pad and it doesn't get that hot around the fans. The problem occur when the pc is running games or processes (computer scans) that require more memory than when I'm just surfing. The problem happens all from 15 mins to 2 hours into a game or so (depends on how much memory that's used). I've been doing some research myself and it seems like a graphic problem.
The computer always fits the minimum requirements for games I play and I play on rather low graphics on every game (to delay the shutdown).
The second problem is whenever I'm streaming or watching a movie the screen randomly turns into a "snow storm". Tried to move the screen up and down thinking it was something wrong with the cable from the hardware to screen but it didn't react to that. What has made this to happen due to the careful handling of the computer. But the only thing that comes to mind is something wrong with that cable... This problem happens randomly and started last week.
I've done some basic problem solving, with no success. I've tried restoring the computer to facotry setup, updating the bios and all the relevant drivers.
I've been looking for a hardware diagnostic program on the computer itself (like other good brands have) with no luck, even looked on the web. But nothing I've tried seems to find the problem.
The specs for the computer:
