Acer Aspire V3 772G :: BIOS Setup Utility Menu Items Disappeared

Dec 3, 2014

Acer Aspire V3-772G - BIOS setup utility menu items have disappeared
 
I have setup this brand new laptop, pre-installed with Windows 8.1, for my sister-in-law who bought it.  The installation went well BUT the 16GB USB device which I purchased as advised by the Acer literature to store the recovery partition was not big enough, the physical capacity being 14.4GB.  The Acer book says use a 16GB device or larger so I did.  I naively thought that a USB drive which was labelled 16GB would be appropriate.  Not so.  I have had to buy a larger one but am still awaiting delivery.
 
I therefore decided to image the whole HDD to save the work I had done but found that the Acronis Backup and Recovery DVD would not boot.  I went into the setup utility and adjusted the Boot settings to legacy and changed device priority.  Acronis would not run so I did not continue.  I went back into the setup utility, used F9 to restore the default and found to my astonishment that the DUAL boot option had now disappeared and the Windows Boot option had also vanished.
 
This means that this £800 laptop is now unusable.  The setup utility self-reconfigured without warning.  Nowhere is there any advice or warning not to use the setup utility in case it erases features which cannot be recovered by using F9 to recover the default configuration.  If this is not a serious design fault, I don't know what is. 

BIOS setup utility behaving this way seems so improbable. How is it that the setup utility has been designed to self-harm like this?

I like their ability to provide quick access and a quick overview of information in a small space. Found this page and thought I would pass it along to others:

The list is pretty good, though not exhaustive. Feel free to add any that you can't live without.

Acer :: Aspire V3-772G BIOS Downgrade?

Oct 21, 2014

After installing the 1.15 version of BIOS my FAN is working almost constantly. Is it any way to downgrade back to version 1.13? Will, f.e., complete reset to factory settings work?

Acer Aspire V3-772g :: Screen Flicker - BIOS Not Upgraded

Sep 8, 2014

I didn't upgrade my BIOS, it came with the latest BIOS because of the graphics card. The people that have fixed it by downgrading have a older version of the same laptop with a different graphics card.

Acer :: Aspire Timeline 5810tz Won't Boot, Can't Access Setup Or Bios

May 7, 2010

I just got an acer aspire timeline 5810tz, which came with vista, so i was in the process of reformatting it to have XP, which i've done several times on my previous laptops. When i changed the bios to IDE, which is what i read was the correct setting (perhaps this is where my problem is?), i found that i could no longer boot the computer or access setup, bios or the boot menu. When i attempt to do any of these things, the computer just sits on the logo screen.

i'm getting fairly desperate at this point, having tried a large variety of solutions, key combos, removing the battery, etc.

Sony :: Notebook Setup Utility

Mar 29, 2009

I know that my notebook came with the Sony Notebook Setup utility program but I lost this recovery disks that came with this notebook so I did have to buy Windows XP Home and did a clean installation of it. I did get the drivers from esupport.sony.com but I can't find the Sony Notebook Setup utility program.

Does anyone know how I can download this and install this on my notebook? It's a program that tells the specs of my PC.

My notebook model is: PCG-R505ESP

Dell XPS L702X :: UEFI Mode Enabled But Can't Access Firmware Setup And Boot Menu

Oct 28, 2012

Yesterday I flashed the firmware of my XPS L702X to version A19, which enabled UEFI boot mode. I decided to go ahead and try to install Windows 7 in UEFI mode on a GPT disk. Installation succeeded, booting failed however. Then I read a message on the web from someone who succesfully installed Windows 8 on the same machine in UEFI boot mode on a GPT disk. So I decided to try Windows 8 instead. Installation failed. Using the recovery menu from the Windows 8 installation media, I wanted to try and see how far installation had come and more or less accidentally selected in some "Advanced options" menu to reboot to my USB flash drive (where the Windows 8 files were on). Rebooted fine. Then I shutdown, using the regular option.

When I turned on my machine again, I found out that pressing either F2 or F12, for the firmware setup and the boot menu, respectively, didn't work anymore. The firmware recognised my input, as the text in the lower right of the Dell splash screen became lighter, but instead of entering setup or the boot menu went straight ahead to boot my existing and working Windows 7 installation on my first (MBR) hard drive instead.

So, in short, I am locked out of setup and the boot menu. I have already tried reflashing the firmware, but without any luck. What to do now?

Dell XPS M1710 :: Clone HD To New Drive Including Hidden Restore / Utility Partition Setup?

Dec 14, 2008

The only reason I purchased my xps m1710 is that I thought it was the top of the range model at the time, now all I want to do is replace the hd but at the same time retain all the functionality of the hidden restore partition and the media centre partition. You would expect Dell would make this easy for me as the owner and as Dell market themselves as providing user friendly IT solutions.

I have tried using trueimage to clone the drive but when trying the new drive on boot up it gets to the Dell 'blue bar' then freezes. I have tried copying partition by partition but this is even less successful.

I have tried restoring the restore 'ghost' image to the new hard drive but symantec ghost reports incompatibilities with the image file.

I am upgrading my original Samsung hd (SATA) to a new hd and would like to keep the hidden partition and mediacentre partition as my original hd. I have a new SATA hd which is currently connected in a USB enclosure. I am not a hd or filesystem expert and don't want to spend a year studying the goodells website.

Acer :: Am I Using The Correct InsydeFlash BIOS Utility

Sep 16, 2009

Would someone please verify that the utility used to flash the BIOS on my new Acer laptop looks like it does in the attached image? Because flashing a BIOS is a pretty serious thing to do with a purchase that costs $500+, I was surprised to see a picture of a CRT monitor wearing a wizard hat using a pencil to erase something. Also the use of non standard fonts is disturbing.

more importantly, are all ACER bios releases unsigned?

The attached picture is of the Insyde InsydeFlash utility for a 4810T v1.28 BIOS.

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: Odd Fan Noise After Cleaning?

Jan 27, 2015

Let's start off with: Acer Aspire V3-772G (Intel(R) ore(TM) i7-4702MQ CPU @2.20GHz, 8 gb Ram)
 
Regardless: After noticing a slight dip in preformance from games and use of my laptop in general so i decided to clean the fans. As this laptop is close to impossible to open up i decided to clean it the easy way, to blast compressed air directly into the fan in slow and infrequent blasts. After getting alot of dust out of the system i turned the laptop back on only to hear this "cd-reading"-like hissing from the left side of the laptop (where the fan is). Being worried i might have broken something i turned it stright off, and then on again realising there was not much i could do about it right now.
 
I am worried i might have spun the fan to fast, causing this, as the fan did not make this sound when i bought it new or before i cleaned it for that sake. It was bought online from a norwegian store (i currently live in norway) at 2014-08-18. I thought i would ask here before i contacted the store or support to see if this is just me over-reacting or if

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: How To Restore Touchpad Functionality

Jan 16, 2015

I recently reinstalled windows 8.1 on my laptop as I had cloning problems with my new ssd (crucial mx100), reinstalling windows apparently solved the problem. I had problems with my display (brightness could not be adjusted) that was solved by installing intel's latest drivers using their app as device manager showed that it had the latest drivers. i only have one issue right now, the touch pad lost its multi-touch features and windows 8.1 gestures, is there anyway to fix this? I know it is probably a driver's problem....

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: No POST / Black Display

Oct 18, 2014

I purchased an Acer Aspire V3-772G-9822 laptop in August 2013.I had the original unit exchanged by the retailer due to a faulty screen (green line running down the display).
 
I also had the mainboard replaced near the end of the warranty period due to an internal fault with the power supply [case #3414447U].
 
I am now just outside the warranty period, with (ostensibly) a new mainboard, and the unit will not boot .
 
I have tried the remove-battery-and-power-supply-and-press-button exercise (resetting the power management IC, I presume) - no success. I have checked / re-seated / removed any / all / each internal SATA drives - no success. I have removed the memory (unit off) to see if I'd get a POST beep error message - no success ...

Acer Aspire V3 772G :: Overheating - Machine Started To Run Slowly

Jan 1, 2015

My Acer Aspire V3 772G that I purchased about 18 months ago is starting to behave quite strangely.
 
The machine has started to run more and more slowly. I have up to date Norton anti-virus, plenty of room on the hard drive, defragment the main drive and try to keep all software up to date.
 
The other, potentially related issue, I have is overheating. When I run certain online games the left side of the laptop get very hot and I have checked the temperature which get to about 100 degrees C and then the machine shuts down without any warning. I am already using a stand with a fan.
 
The only thing that I can think of that might be causing this is out of date drivers. When I check from the Device manager it says that all the drivers are up to date and this is confirmed when I look on the Acer site. However, when I go to the Intel site it says that there are more up to date drivers for the integrated graphics card. Should I ignore Acer's information and install the new driver?

Acer Aspire 772G-9829 :: Overheating And Hard Crash

Feb 18, 2015

I purchased my Acer Aspire 7726-9829 in August 2013 and haven't had any problems at all until a week and a half ago.  When running games, it appears my computer is heating up and experiencing a hard crash. (This only happens when running games.  Browsing the web or watching movies doesn't cause the problem.)
 
At first I thought it might be the power settings, so I picked up a new power supply and set my computer to 'high performance'. (Which fixed minor clipping issues.  The graphics now run perfectly for about five to ten minutes before the computer crashes.)

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: Keyboard No Diagonal Movement With Arrow Keys

Jan 29, 2015

I bought Acer Aspire V3-772G about a week ago. It was without an OS which I installed myself. First I installed win 7. When I was trying out new PES 2014, I had a problem with movement with arrow keys.

I mean no diagonally moving or anything. Only up, down, left, right. Laptop doesn't recognize multy pressed arrow keys. At first I thought it was an windows issue cause all drivers in Acer support page are for win 8. Installed win 8 and still same problem.

Acer Aspire V3-772g :: Won't Boot - Power Works / Lights Work

Dec 10, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire V3-772g, a relatively new laptop (8 months old), which randomly decided to stop booting.

Windows 8.1Core i7 2.2ghznVidia GTX 760m8gig's of ram (2x4gb)7200 RPM SATA

Was playing a game just fine. Shut down as normal, went to work, came home 8 hours later, attempted to boot - nothing.

Exact problem: Hit power button, power button comes on. Light next to the lightbulb (power light?) Comes on, stays solid. Charging stays solid orange/blue.

HDD light? Flickers. Screen flickers a dark grey color that may be the very initial part of a startup. No acer logo.The screen and HDD light flicker in synchronisation, at the same exact time. You can hear the fans fire up, and the HDD spin up. Screen just flickers about once per second (it's very faint.)

--Heres what I've tried---

-Removing power cord/battery, holding button for 60 seconds 3 times, plugging back in and powering up.
- Almost every varation of that, I have attempted.
-Inserting a new harddrive. Same result.
-Plugging in an external monitor. (Tried VGA and HDMI)
- Power does not transfer to external monitors. Screen still flickers on laptop, no change in behavior.
-Removed 1 stick of RAM - No **BUT** behavior changes slightly. Flickering of screen and HD light reduced to about once every 45 seconds rather than once every second.
-Removed both sticks of RAM - no flickering, no HDD light flickering. Pure black screen.
-Rotated the sticks of RAM - No change.

Also interestingly, with everything normal, if I hold Fn+Esc, the computer will do a new startup process (Screen still black), then after about 20 seconds goes into the normal screen flickering/HDD indicator flickering. Different behavior, slightly.

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: Touchpad Stops Responding To Any Gestures Or Mouse Cursor Keeps Shaking On Screen

Sep 17, 2014

I've been having problems with this device since the day I bought it. The second day I owned it a bad pixel jumped onto the screen. After pushing it for some time physically on the surface of the screen it dissapears for another day or two.

But my biggest problem is taht sometimes touchpad simply stops responding to any gestures or mouse cursor keeps shaking on my screen. The only ting I can do is turn off the whole touchpad and wait for it to repair itself.

Also it happens that for no apparent reason my notebook behaves like as if I had been pressing CRTL button all the time, while I dont do it at all. Pressing S key alone makes it run into save options. Left clicking on the page makes it open in a new bookmark.
