Acer :: Aspire 4736z Bluetooth

Jan 24, 2010

Just wanted to share my upgrade experience with my Aspire 4736z. My model did not come with bluetooth installed from the factory and it only has 3 usb ports and I wanted to keep them as free as possible.

So I found a place that sells the bluetooth module and cable needed.

I installed the module and cable and everything works great. Installed the driver and now my bluetooth button works as it should.

Here is the link to the place where I bought the module from:

Acer :: Aspire 4736Z DDR3 RAM

Apr 16, 2010

On the spec, my current 4736Z system is running with Intel T4400 (2.2GHz, 1MB Cache, 800MHz FSB), 2GB DDR3 RAM with genuine Window 7 Home Premium 64bit installed.

As to my understandng, the new Window 7 can address more than 4GB RAM from previous 32bit Window OS.

The question that I don't understand is why can't I upgrade the 4736Z notebook RAM more than 4GB, said with the market offering of 4GB x 2 DDR3 RAM giving me the 8GB instead?

My reason being the Window 7 was installed and the system supports DDR3 also.

Acer :: No Display On Aspire 4736z

Jan 10, 2010

I just got an acer aspire 4736Z this week. I got one that came with no operating system since I got a windows 7 install disc for christmas.

I set it up just fine. I got to install a few programs.

Then I thought of hooking up an LCD monitor. But because of how my table (as in the desk I sit in front of) is set up, I made the second monitor the "Primary" via Intel's graphics options. The actual monitor on the laptop then was secondary.

All went fine. I was still able to use both displays for quite some time. Then before bed I shut the laptop down. This morning, trying to turn it on, with the monitor still attached, nothing is displaying on either. Not even the stuff that come on when the BIOS things should be showing. I tried to unplug the monitor, but the same thing happens. Nada. It's all black.

The power button led turns on, and the two little led lights below the touch pad are on. But pressing caps lock, the caps lock indicator does not light up..

Acer :: Aspire 4736z Video Memory

Jun 7, 2009

When I check in the bios, it has the video memory set at 64mb. It does not give me the option to change this value like my old aspire 5100. Does anyone know of a way to increase the video memory on this lappy?

Acer :: Aspire 4736z Video Card Upgrade/add

Oct 1, 2009

i just recently bought this laptop and was first satisfied with it's features.

But then.... 64MB of system video memory?

Come on Acer. And so I was thinking if I could add some graphics like buying a decent video card for it.

I heard that video cards for laptops are in PCI express.

Can my Acer use it?

IF and only IF this Acer Aspire doesn't have the ability to use a new video card, is there any other way I could improve its graphics like getting some of the built-in shared memory and putting it in the video?

Acer :: Broken DC Jack On AA1's

Mar 23, 2009

Has anyone broken the power jacks on their aspire ones? I saw from some pics that it's soldered right onto the board. My wife tripped over mine yesterday and may think the plug is a little bit looser than before, but still holds just fine.

Acer :: Line Out Is Broken On My Extensa

Jan 11, 2010

I got an Acer Extensa 5420 a few months ago refurbished and at first everything seemed fine. A month or so later I noticed that the line out had a small crack in the middle of the green ring.. a little annoying but my headphones seemed to work fine so I just ignored it. After using the line out for a few months it's become more and more faulty. Now, when I plug in headphones no sound comes out, it doesn't even recognize anything is plugged in unless I have it turned at the exact right angle. I know the audio jack is just screwed up, but what options do I have to fix this problem?

Acer :: Broken LCD Send To For Repair Or DIY

Sep 29, 2009

I have a 4 month old Acer Aspire 6920G laptop with a cracked LCD. It happened just by catching the corner of it (the plastic surround, not the lcd) with the back of my hand (it was just a tap for god's sake!) as I went to plug in a memory stick. Brilliant. I guess the screen was weakened for some reason.

Anyway, I know the screen isn't covered by the warranty so I was wondering how much Acer charge to replace the screen? I've looked around and can get a new replacement screen for about 95 and fit it myself but I assume that will void the rest of my warranty? I'm happy to go the DIY route if a screen is far more expensive from Acer.

Anyway main question. If I replace the HDD how do I get this notebook working again... no recovery CD's or anything?

Acer :: Extensa Motherboard BROKEN

Mar 31, 2009

I noticed that if I have to shut it down by turning the power off directly from the power switch (without shutting down Vista first), some problems arise.

The next time you try to boot the laptop after doing an "emergency shut down" like that, the laptop starts making a very loud beeping noise and it's very hard to boot it (eventually it will boot, though). My friend said he doesn't have problems like this even if he has to turn off the power by pressing the power button for 4 secs.

Is the motherboard broken?

Acer :: Aspire 7738G - Subwoofer Seems To Be Broken

Jan 23, 2010

I have an Aspire 7738G and I have a few questions.

My subwoofer seems to be broken, sometimes it sounds as it should but sometimes it sounds like a broken speaker. Have anyone else experienced this? Is there a easy fix or do I need to hand it in for repair?

When it was new 2 months ago I began with creating two partitions on the windows drive (it has 2 harddrives) because I don't like it when the windows partition is on 500 gb, then everything got screwed and nothing worked (I so hate the MS partitioning tool).

Because of this I lost the backup partition and the genuin OS. I have ordered the windows seven upgrade but I wonder, can I do a clean install without having a genuin os on the pc, with the upgrade kit?

Is there anyway I get a new backup partition?

I do have a serial on the back of the laptop for vista, is there anywhere I can get the oem dvd for vista for this laptop and install it with my serial?

Right now I have windows 7 RC and the volume touch slider does not work. I can't find any drivers for it on the acer driver site. IS it broken or what is wrong?

Acer :: What Cost To Replace A Broken Screen?

Feb 27, 2009

I recently dropped my acer 5315 and now the screen is broken. There are a lot of black blotches and a little color and some lines when I start up and it stays that way.

Would anybody know approximately what it would cost to replace the screen or know where I could purchase one.

How big of a job would it be to replace as I have never worked on a laptop.

Acer :: TravelMate 7520 - Computer Broken

Apr 29, 2009

I'm using an Acer TravelMate 7520. I had it with me at university, and had no problems (other than it being a little slow sometimes...). When I came home for the summer it started freezing up, and then emitting a loud, constant beep. it will work fine for a few minutes upon start, but then the programs start to freeze, then the mouse, then the beep comes. I did a virus scan and came up with 2 viruses, which i removed, but it is still doing it!! I can't figure out what is wrong with it, or a solution.

The other day it got very hot, because me (like an idiot) left it sitting on my bed with the fan covered. It cooled off and everything, and the fan works fine.

Acer :: 1410 Broken Hinge Options

Mar 16, 2010

i dropped my netbook last night and cracked the left hinge. the hinge itself actually seems like a two piece and snapped back together, however it looks like it completely broke off the body.

the netbook looks like it still works, but im wondering what my options are, if any?

im assuming the standard acer warranty doesn't cover this...is it worth trying to fix myself, or is that even possible? should i just pray it keeps working and just hope for the best?

Acer :: Dropped Aspire 3680 Just The Screen, Or Other Hw Broken

Mar 31, 2009

My husband dropped his Aspire 3680-2682 the other day and the screen went wonky. I booted it off a VGA monitor and it seems to be fine running from there, BUT I could not get it to boot to VGA except in safe mode, and when I choose to boot in regular mode it goes to the LCD screen and doesn't allow switching the display to the external monitor.

This is the only thing that concerns me that it might not be just the screen that sustained damage.

I was eventually able to get th bezel off (it doesn't come 100% off on this model but doesn't need to) and remove the lcd panel for inspection. The thin board taped to the back of the panel doesn't seem to be visibly broken or strained and the connectors to it were taped so firmly in place they didn't budge on impact. The small board that rests at the bottom of the top case under the bezel (the inverter?) can't be inspected well and I don't want to damage it by trying. In any case nothing appears damaged to the naked eye on or around the screen.

The first pic is how the screen looks when booted; it also (visibly) flickers and redraws continuously. The second shows that applying pressure allows a clearer view of the console and stops the flickering.

I have found a replacement screen online for 50.00 and feel comfortable enough trying to replace it rather than spend the cost of a new laptop on sending it for repairs.

However, if it's not just the screen I don't want to throw more money at this.

In your experienced opinions, does it look like the damage is typical of a broken LCD screen and not something in the motherboard? (no clue on how to get a closer look at that stuff. took every screw out of it last night and couldn't get the bottom case to reveal its secrets.)

Acer Aspire S3-951 :: Screen Broken - Force HDMI Output

Oct 13, 2014

Aspire S3. The PC is perfectly fine, except the fact the the screen is broken. It already broke twice (just by opening...), so we are not spending money on a third one.So, what I want to do is to connect it to an external monitor through HDMI (and possibly remove the broken screen, since it has no use). I can do it in Windows, but not outside Windows (BIOS) and I'd like install Windows 8.1 or 10. So my question is: can I force output from boot into HDMI? If so how, if not, what alternatives do I have to install a new version of Windows without spending a small fortune?

Acer Aspire E5-571-5552 :: Wake From Sleep Using USB Mouse / Keyboard Broken

Jan 24, 2015

I bought a new Acer E5-571-5552 recently, it came with Windows 8.1 64bit. One of the ways I use my laptop often is in "docked mode", basically connect it to external monitor via HDMI, and external USB mouse & keyboard. I set the windows power options for "close lid" to do nothing, then it works fine like a desktop. This works fine with all other laptops I've used in the past (Lenovo, HP, Toshiba...etc). But this new Acer has trouble waking from sleep, the USB keyboard & mouse only light up, but doesn't wake up the fan/drive/monitor. I have to open the lid and press a key on the laptop (USB keyboard/mouse still doesn't).
 
I've opened case 3601882U and chatted with 2 agents, one had me update to latest BIOS 1.11 which didn't resolve it. The other tried to insist it was a limited feature, that the Acers had to have lid open to wake up the computer from sleep. I think this is a broken feature. Is this true for all Acers, or just this windows 8.1 model?

Dell Studio 1737 :: When Press Certain Keys On Keyboard Adjacent Keys Activated As Well As The Key Itself

Jan 25, 2015

I am having a problem with my keyboard on my dell studio 1737. When you press certain keys on the keyboard the adjacent keys are activated as well as the key itself. I've tried various techniques I've read about to correct the problem such as removing power from the laptop for an extended period of time and installing new bios drivers but nothing seems to work. From the information I can gather this is a common problem with this model of Dell laptop. What is the best way to correct this problem. Will replacing the keyboard correct this problem or is there some other problem causing the malfunction?

Acer :: Aspire5920 MM Keys

Oct 15, 2008

I upgraded to Vista Ultimate SP1 (clean install) and downloaded all drivers from Acer Europe's website, and everything works fine.. except for the multimedia touch-keys panel to the right. Only Play/pause, stop, prev and next are backlit, but not the rec or the larger "Acer man" button. I checked Device Manager and everything is configured correctly. I tried under Keyboard and Launch Manager's driver is identified, but there's MS' own eHome drivers for the IR keyboards. I tried pointing the update driver wizard to Launch Manager's directory but it refused to update anything.

As a last ditch effort I tried Girder to capture the blue keys input to no avail. It seems the entire panel (minus the Acer man button, since pressing it launches the Media Centre app) isn't recognised by Vista. Is there anything to be done or should I revert the laptop to OEM status?

It seems installing Synaptics resolved this issue. but the rec key and the acer button are still not backlit.

Acer :: 1810T: Arrow Keys Not Working

Apr 20, 2010

I've noticed our new 1810T's arrow and PageUp/PageDown keys often don't respond to presses, specifically when pressed higher on the key (along the upper border as someone says in one of the 1810T owner threads). This ends up happening quite a lot the way I situate my hands over the keyboard and the touchpad, and is a serious issue for me since I'm using these keys a lot in the development environment I use. As referenced above I've seen a few mentions of this issue on the forum, but no clear confirmation whether it is normal for the 1810T. Can anyone with a 1810T out there verify whether their unit exhibits this issue?
