Acer :: Is My Battery Dead

May 8, 2009

I recently got a brand new 9-cell battery for my Aspire One, and it has been great until now. I left my laptop in sleep mode with about 60% charge remaining, and in the morning my laptop would not start. When I clicked the power button the orange light just flashed. So I took it home, left it on the charger all night (had a green light), and now it won't start again. I plugged it in, and Windows and BatteryBar are both showing 0% charge remaining. If I remove the AC plug it will stay on for a couple minutes then die again. Is my battery just completely dead?

Acer :: TM290 Can Empty CMOS Batteries

Nov 18, 2008

i have an Acer Travelmate 290 that barely starts these days. Fan is starting properly but screen remains black. Sometimes the bootscreen appears and then the screen goes white after some seconds. I can go into BIOS or run Memtest+ for some seconds but it always gets white some time later. I removed all modular parts and exchanged RAMs already. It got worse lately. Whereas the device starts maybe one of 10 attempts and remains stable for seconds it was working for minutes weeks ago. I detached/disassembled the notebook completely already several times. I don't have any Pentium-M replacement so this is the only part i couldn't swap yet.

I measured the cmos coin cell. It holds 2.539V of 3.0V. Looks empty but CMOS values are still ok i think (date is correct if i enter BIOS). Is it possible that the CMOS cell is responsible for those false starts?

Acer :: CMOS Jumper Switch 5610Z

Mar 7, 2009

I have a grandson just older enough to be dangerous around a computer. Recently I allowed him to use my 5610Z to make some pictures of himself, etc. Later the family went home far from here. Still later I tried to start the Laptop and "enter supervisor password" would appear each time I tried to start it. I'm never used a password, don't even know how to do such a thing. Naturally I called and he "remembers nothing!"

I'm old, 75, and do not have good vision. I found in the Manual for the Model a page showing "Jumper Settings" and a diagram with the description, 'Clear CMOS Jumper.

Note:
J3 locates at the bottom side of the main board as the red circle highlighted." Fine, I found it physically but don't know how to turn it on or off. I've pulled batteries to clear CMOS before but never had to deal with a switch.

Would I be correct in using tweezers and just pulling the square object up, or try to turn it?

I miss my Acer. Two years, never a blue screen, nor freeze up. I want it back running before I kick the bucket.

Dell :: OMGCmos Battery Dead?

Jan 6, 2010

In all my years of building and using computers I have never actually experienced an actual case of the cmos battery running out. However, I think my awesome m1530 has shown me everything now. Here is the case:

Fresh windows 7 install - Windows 7 time is correct - Shut down - Boot up - The time is the exact time I shut down.

Is there anything this could be besides a dead cmos battery? I bought my LT brand new directly from Dell about 2-3 years ago, which is a ridiculously short life for a cmos battery. I have to dismantle my LT to bits in order to replace this battery. Anyway, having the wrong time makes a mess of windows, I really need some advice here.

Can it be something other than the cmos battery and what should I do?

Dell :: Dead Battery In New E6500?

Mar 16, 2009

I setup a beautiful new Dell E6500 for a client. However, it will not work AT ALL unless on AC.

OK, it IS a refurb from their outlet, but still, battery should work, yes?

Is there a setting in the BIOS or something that is different in this line?

HP/Compaq :: Nx9420: Dead Battery

Sep 16, 2009

The battery is dead after 2.5 years. Charge it for a day, remove the power cord and the laptop won't start.

I don't know if I should go for a new battery or new cells?

Also, how do I open the battery the easiest way? I'd like to see if someone else have done it before I do, I guess there's a lot of glue in it that makes it difficult to open.

HP/Compaq :: Nx9600- Dead Battery

Feb 24, 2010

I have a Compaq nx9600 with a dead battery. I popped it open to find sony SF US18650GR batteries all lined up in a row within.

Further research finds 3.7V 2200mAh batteries out there from 6-8 dollars and I need 12 of them... Which means that it wouldnt be cost effective for me to fix the darn things.

I did find 3.7V 2400mAh for 99 cents each and was wondering if any of you might know whether I could use these batteries with a higher milliamp?

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 Battery Dead?

Feb 26, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 which I bought in the UK new from Dell in April 2007.

The battery is a 9 Cell type (upgraded when bought).

Within the first year it got used on the battery most of the time.

After that it has been plugged in with battery (for backup incase of power outage) about 95% of the time.


Now the power only lasts a few minutes before it totally dies. It charges up to 100% and discharges normally down to roughly 85%. Then this is the strange part, it jumps all the way down to 6% charge .....

Dell :: Safe To Clean Install When Battery Is Dead ?

Jun 19, 2009

I'm going to do a clean install of Vista soon but my battery is dead, won't even recharge, needs to be replaced.

Just wondering if I will run into any issues ?

Dell seem extortionate for an Inspiron 1520 replacement. Worth a 3rd party risk? Seen some non OEM ones on ebay with a 1 year guarantee for half the price.

Dell :: 1525 Cmos Change?

Sep 19, 2009

I have a Dell 1525, bought in April 08, about 3 months ago time started to get out of sync and multiple problems with battery "plugged in not charging."

So today after charging the battery from a friends external battery charger ( friend had same problem) I was updating the BIOS to A16 from A06 and when the laptop was restarting with the bios update I get a message saying "Time of Day Clock Stopped."

My question is if I replace the CMOS battery will this solve the problem?
Looking at dell documentation from

looks tedious and time consuming but not hard .....

Dell :: Dead Screen Or Dead Video Card

Mar 29, 2008

I am at my wits end with my e1705. I had a sudden meltdown about 2 weeks ago... screen went scrambled, BSOD,etc...

Performed diagnostic, memory on video card came back as bad. Replaced with new card (from Dell), reinstalled OS, completely reinstalled nVidea drivers from Dell (Used driver cleaner too)...

Everything went smooth for a couple hours after this was completed yesterday (full diagnostic showed no errors), but after booting up today, after about 5 or 10 minutes of use screen freezes and turns either solid cyan or black... a small pattern of thin lines appears also.

HP/Compaq :: 6710b- BIOS CMOS Password

Jan 1, 2009

I have a Compaq 6710b that was given to me for work. My friend put a password on it that requires me write in before the computer will boot in order for me to log-in to my work account. I believe that this is called a BIOS or CMOS or a boot password. My friend said that it is for extra security. I know the password and have no problems getting past this point, but I do not want to have to enter this first password to get to where I log-in onto my work account. The computer was not like this when I got it and I do not want to take it to a tech at work and explain to him what my idiot friend did. The friend does not know how to change it back so that I do not have to enter this password.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 1645 Serial Flash CMOS PINS

Apr 4, 2010

Dell Studio XPS 1640 1645 Serial Flash CMOS PINS

The process to be used appears credibly outlined at the following web address: http://www.darkmagic.org/mike/dell-tag/dell/dell.html

But the laptop used in the above web site is not that of a Dell Studio XPS 1640 or 1645. So parts location, disassembly and reassembly are unique with the 1640 & 1645.

I have had the 'privilege' to be stonewalled by Dell 'customer service' when requesting the lost password to access CMOS & BIOS setup on my Dell Studio XPS 1640.

I purchased a used Studio XPS 1640 that was just under 2 months out of warranty from another who was disgusted with the hassles that have developed with some of the 1640s & 1645s over heat, throttling, RGB screen blinking, inadequate power supply, etc, etc. The formal transfer of ownership was immediately completed on Dell's web-site .....

Dell :: Code Error 20000212 (CMOS Failed The Pattern Test) On Studio 1555

Feb 9, 2010

I ran de PSA diagnostics on my Studio 1555 and I got the error 2000 - 0212 (CMOS failed the pattern test). I changed the CMOS setting to default, ran the test again, and I got the same error.

Called Dell tech support, they told me that they are going to replace my board. My original problem is that Win7 is taking more than normal to start (2 - 3 minutes to be ready).

I got an Intel C2D P8700, 4GB RAM DDR2 800MHz, ATI Radeon 4570HD 512mb, 250GB Samsung HD 5400RPM. It should start fast, since the HD has no fragments, the win reg is ok and I have not crappy services or programs at startup. Does any1 know what is this error about?

Acer :: My 5920G Is Dead

Oct 18, 2008

I tried installing Service Pack 1 and it won't boot. Microsoft has just sent me a Vista Home Premium Repair CD that will hopefully fix it. I have Recovery Discs, but then I'll lose all my data. This is the 2nd time that my 5920G has broke like this, is there a huge design flaw with this laptop?

Is Acer always like this? It was such a high end laptop for its price (8600M GT, Core 2 Duo 1.5 Ghz, 2 GB RAM, HDMI, HD-DVD, for $1099), but I can never trust this company again.

Acer :: LCD Screen DEAD

Jul 16, 2009

so after about 6 months of not-so-abusive use of my notebook, the LCD screen sort of chickened out on me.. (Maybe me thinking to tear it apart sent it running lol)

What happened was, every so often before the day of failure, my screen would go gray in the bottom half and alright in the upper. Usually this would be fixed by applying very little torsion in the screen i.e. pushing on the left upper part of the screen and pulling on the right.

Not yesterday. When that happened and I made this move, it only became worse, lines started forming in the screen and then the screen went from white to black like paper burning..although moving it wouldn't make it stay that way. Now, I could only see about 1/3 of the upper part of the screen.

Now, I can't immediately claim the warranty of this thing, since it was my dad who bought it at Singapore, and the ITW says that the buyer must make a personal appearance with the necessary documents i.e. passport, reciepts etc. before the laptop could be repaired.

The first impression I got was perhaps the wire connecting the LCD to the mainboard needs to be reattached or something, but my local Acer service center suggests that it might as well be an LCD screen fault altogether.

Now, how would you know if it's your LCD screen and not just wires that went kaput? I was pretty convinced that it might just be the wire, since the method I used to do solved it, but now it doesn't budge...

Acer :: Dead 1362

My 1362 WLMI will not boot, it gives 1 long and 2 short beeps, the HDD runs as normal, and all the other LEDs light up, but it will not get past this, and there is nothing on the screen.

This follows an obvious failure to flash the latest BIOS... leaving me with a dead laptop..

Acer :: 5520G Keeps Rebooting .. Is It Dead

Jul 17, 2009

My friend has mess up his Acer Aspire 5520G. And I'm supposed to help him fix it. His laptop has a nVidia 8400 graphics card.

When the laptop is powered it keeps rebooting itselve evry 3-4 seconds, and nothing is displayed on the screen. I don't know what's wrong with my friend's laptop but I think it might be related to the BIOS been correpted in his laptop. He tried to flash the BIOS from VISTA.

Anyways, I got Crisis recovery disk, and the latest BIOS for his laptop, and I got also a USB floppy drive. I removed the harddrive and the optical drive to force the laptop to boot from the USB floppy drive. I removed the battery too.

I pushed Fn+Esc, plugged the charger in the laptop and powered the laptop. The laptop know doesn't reboot itself but doesn't detect the floppy drive either.

I used the floppy to make a boot CD and tried to flash the bios again using the DVD drive this time. Pushed Fn+Esc again. The laptop turns ON and try to read the CD for about 5 seconds and then nothing else happens.

1- Is it a BAD BIOS.

2- How to make a boot CD to use with Crisis Recovery.

Acer :: Dead Aspire 5920g

Oct 31, 2008

So after packing up my comp at a friends house my comp is kinda dead, it was alive before I left my home and everything was fine then.

When i try to start it the cpu is flickering for a bit then freezes so i dont se any bios or anything.

The blue tooth and the lights to the right of the key board are lit to and I have no idea what to do.

Ive tried my old ram mem sticks, pulling out the battery and trying without it, trying a new hard drive, checking for loose cables inside the comp, checking for dust and screaming at it but nothing works.

I talked to some friends and they suggested something called flashing the bios but I have no idea how to do it and I dont know if it will work since i cant se the bios start up screen before it freezes.

I have called acer but they basicly told me to send it in but i dont know if i have any varenty left on it so I rather try to get it working on my own before sending it in if I still got varenty on it.

Acer :: Left 4 Dead Lag On 6920

Mar 31, 2009

[url]

I have the above model and it seems to be performing quite nicely. However, what I've noticed on all Valve games is that after a few minutes, the frame rates drop from mid 70s-80s (low) to 10-15 regardless of whatever resolution, texture or ingame setting I change post this sudden drop. restarting the game makes the problem temporarily dissapear but is back within a few minutes. The effect is especially noticeable when there are about 30 zombies on top of you

I've tried disabling one core, reducing sound to low and have even monitored temperatures via nvidias system checker as well as speed fan. At no point does GPU/ CPU temperature exceed 60 degree celcius. Have also tried several drivers all the way from 178.x to 182.x (using modified infs) to no avail. Please share your input regarding this problem.

I also accidentally uninstalled acer bioware protection and upon reinstalling cannot set it up since clicking a blinking finger on the setup menu states "Unable to select fingerprint device!"

Music sounds rather "tinny" and baseless using these inbuilt speakers. I assumed with all this dolby gee whizz, id get a sublime experience

Acer :: 5100 Touchpad Dead

I have an Acer 5100 and the touch pad has died ( including all the buttons ). Was perfect one day , turned it on the next day and it was dead. I'm surviving on an old IBM mouse plugged into USB port at present.

Have checked the mouse properties and it says it is working properly ( which it obviously isn't ) . Have uninstalled and re-installed including checking for latest driver on line . The mouse properties still tell me everything is working properly .

i have an acer travelmate 3262, it crashed a week ago, it loads windows (XP) normally, then when the word "welcome" appears, it gives me an error message about not being able to read, write, flush something related to the registry (i know i sound retarded but i really don't understand the message) then it keeps restarting, and checking all the drives for problems, then the error message, then restarts again !

i tried to use the safe mode but it freezes before opening it (and restars again)

i tried to reinstall windows, but it doesn't seem to recognize the bootable CDs!! it doesn't recognize the acer recovery CD either :S

i tried using the alt+F10 method to restore the C drive, but still, it doesn't recognize it either !

Acer :: Notebook Dont Detect Battery Even Working On Battery

Feb 23, 2008

i am using acer aspire 5600 xp/vista and LION battery.

my battery had memory effect once and could work for like 15-20 min.but its indicator worked fine at that time.

but now memory effect is gone and i am now facing a new problem.

At full charging, system shows that battery is not connected even it is connected.even if i unplug the AC supply still it thinks that notebook is running from AC supply.During this period i cant use my laptop keyboard and touchpad.I Can use only externally connected keyboard and mouse.

While notebook is using the laptop battery(Ac Unplugged),after sometime it detects the battery and the indicator shows 7% of battery time.Then my notebook keyboard and touchpad starts to work and then this percentage decreases to 0%. The time between shift of percentage is approx 10 min . Even On 0% the battery works fine and works for like 15 min. Overall Battery can work for like 1 hr 30 min approx(Low Performance).

My main problem is i cant use my laptop keyboard and touchpad while the battery is fully charged. i have to drain my battery in order to use keyboard and touchpad.

Acer :: Aspire 6930gIs My Optiarc BD-Rom Dead

Jun 15, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 6930G notebook, it approx 3 months old and was running without problem until last week when the Optiarc BD-Rom BC-5500S drive stopped loading/playing or recognising any discs in the drive whether DVD, CD or BD-Rom - all that happens is that the BD ROM drive makes a "B-Dum, B-Dum, B-Dum" noise at the regular rate of about once per second and after about 2 minutes of this timesout. If you right click on the Drive icon and select "Explore", then the drive tray ejects and the message screen "please insert a disc into drive F:" displays - when I insert a disc into the try and close then the all that happens is the noise as described about again. I do not hear a fast spinning sound at all, just the slow steady B-dum noise.

What I am trying to find out is whether the drive is broken and it is a hardware malfunction, or whether it could possibly be a driver problem or Windows Vista problem causing this, or even whether something simple like the 30-day trial of "Powerdirector" that was pre-installed but since elapsed, could have somehow caused the disc to stop working. I know nothing about filter drivers, but could this be something to look into?

Nothing loads at all - no audio Cd's no DVD's, no data discs, no blank discs. It seems strange that neither laser appears to be activating.

I bought the notebook over the internet from Amazon so am trying to find out if this is a hardware or software problem first, before contacting them, as if it is a software problem this would not be covered under the warranty.
