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 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 :: BIOS Setup Utility Menu Items Have Disappeared

Dec 4, 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. 
 
I am deeply worried because the idea of a BIOS setup utility behaving this way seems so improbable.  How is it that the setup utility has been designed to self-harm like this?

Acer :: Aspire 6930G Screen Flicker

Apr 26, 2010

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

Spare Part(s) Replaced:
ODD HLDS SUPERMULTI DRIVE 12.7
COVER.MIDDLE.W/MMN/EKEY-BD

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)................

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Screen Will Flicker Occasionally

Oct 17, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire and it's been good to me mostly; however, I have an issue that I was wondering if anyone could help me with. My screen will flicker occasionally and it has only gotten worse. Sometimes changing the angle of the screen stops it, other times plugging it in stops it but sometimes neither work.

Acer :: Aspire 5520-5865, BIOS Upgraded. Now, It's Dead

Jun 25, 2009

Yesterday, I've been told by an Acer representative that I should upgrade my BIOS as soon as I mentioned slowdown.

So I decided to upgrade with the BIOS from the site at Acer PanAm.

As soon as it said it was making a backup of the BIOS I previously had, it blacked out and turned off. Upon boot, my screen was black, my LEDs were flashing despite the only keys working were Caps and NumLock; and pressing the power button once would turn it off.

So then, as I thought Google was my friend, I searched for guides on how to do a BIOS recovery. Thing is, I don't remember my BIOS version, and I needed to go buy a USB floppy drive to do the Crisis Recovery Disk method. So I managed to buy one for $15, and tried the Fn+Esc solution correctly and endlessly with many BIOS versions, but to no avail.

Also, the laptop had to be downgraded to XP, as when it was previously a Vista with only 766MB of RAM, I couldn't do jack with it without slowing down like an elderly person on Ritalin. Maybe this has something to do with Acer's BIOS being Vista-only?

I suck with computers, so I dunno. I've been told I should change my BIOS chip.

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.

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 :: 5920 Screen Flicker

Mar 7, 2009

On my Acer 5920, the screen flickers off and on when I plug up to my projector to give a power point presentation. I have called Acer NO-HELP; they said it was a 3rd party software issue, which was not true, because there is no software- it is plug and play. I called Epson; they suggested to chage the refresh rate to 60 and I did to no avail.

There final word was that it must be the Graphics Card.

Acer :: 1410 Screen Flicker

Dec 18, 2009

I found a couple other reviews where people said they had a noticeable (more so on dimmer settings, for me) screen flicker with their timelines. I have the 1410 with su2300 proc. Anyone else noticing this problem? It's enough to distract me, which can be annoying, but I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to the visuals.

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 5515 - Processor Can Be Upgraded?

Mar 10, 2009

I have an acer aspire 5515. Great machine for me. I am interested in finding out if the processor can be upgraded. It currently has a AMD Athlon 2650e 1.6ghz in it. I have not been able to find information on the motherboard for this laptop. Acer site was not much help but I figured it was because the laptop came out around 12/09 but i dont no for sure. I happened upon the emachine site and there is one that looks exactly like it and has the same specs. So I have to wonder if this is an emachine with acer plastered all over it. Does anyone no what the motherboard model is or for sure what the highest processor i can upgrade to, if possible. I see where others say they have put higher processors in it but want to no for sure.

Acer Aspire E1-522 :: Black Screen Of Death - Cannot Get Into BIOS

Sep 2, 2014

I have a relatively new Aspire E1-522.   Was in the middle of watching Netflix when it conked out.   Now, when I turn the power on very little happens...the blue light comes on, the fan comes on and the screen backlight comes on...and then goes out...and then comes on again...etc.
 
Basically, turning it on doesn't even get to the Acer logo.  Cannot get into the BIOS by any means.   In my research this sounds exactly like the Aspire One black screen of death, although I haven't found references to it with respect to the E1.
 
I think the BIOS is fried. How to re-flash it on the E1-522?  I cannot boot windows, so I can't use the self-extracting EXE.   I need to be able to flash it from the bare bones hardware like the fix for the AA1 ....

Acer Aspire 5754 :: How To Flash BIOS When Getting Black Screen

Mar 7, 2015

I attempted to update my bios for my Acer Aspire 5745 notebook and chose the wrong file.  The computer is giving me a black screen now. When I push the start button the lights come on the fan blows and thats all. I found a few sits on line giving me the procedure to flash an aspire one system. Here is the steps I took to do so to no avail.
 
1. When to the acer site and put the SNID number to my laptop to pull up my suggested downloads for my system.
2. I downloaded the file to my working computer.
3. I extracted the file and opened the file that said DOS.
4. I renamed the file zg5ia32.fd
5. checked my flash drive to make sure it is set to ( FAT ).
6. Transferred the file to the flash drive.
7. Pluged in the flash drive to my dead laptop while it was pluged into a powersorce.
8. Held down the FN and ESC buttons while pushing the power buttons.
9. Released the FN and ESC buttons when I noticed the power light blinking and the flash drive light up.
10. Waited for over 15 min.  but had no success.
 
I also opened up the backside to the laptop and removed the little battery that was plugged it with a small white connector assuming it was the cmos battery but still nothing happened.

Acer Aspire 5742z :: BIOS Update Black Screen

Feb 16, 2015

I've spent 3 days and countless hours trying to find the solution to a black screen after attempting to update my daughter's Acer Aspire 5742Z from the bios it had to the latest bios available on the site (1.30).  I ran the windows version from windows and I clicked thru the various dialogue windows appearing to be on its merry way.  At one point, the screen went black and after about a half hour it stayed that way so I unplugged it b/c it wasn't responding to the power button nor the ctrl-alt-delete. I've tried using a usb stick formatted to both fat and fat32 containing the dos version of the bios files and the full contents from a windows 98 startup floppy disk i dusted off from retirement.  I also tried a cdrw and cdr only containing the bios files.  In all attempts, the hdd led and either the optical drive or usb stick led blinked a little before dying out and nothing more.
