Acer Aspire 7720-6569 :: Sudden Shutdown - Power Icon Shows Full Charge And Plugged In

Oct 6, 2014

 My battery has not held more than about a 45-second charge since 2009; however, the AC adaptor seems to work fine, and the Power Management icon always tells me that I have a full (i.e., about 45-second) charge and that the AC adaptor is plugged in.  Today, just after I disabled the Acer Tour Reminder, CyberLink PlayMovie, and Microsoft Office OneNote (because I never use them and I wanted a faster startup), I moved some program icons that I didn't need or that were already on my Quick Launch tool bar into the Recycle Bin.  Suddenly, the notebook make sort of an electronic squeaking sound and immediately shut down--black screen; no lights.  
 
I unplugged it, checked to ensure the battery was properly seated, felt to make sure it did not feel hot anywhere, plugged it in, saw that the lights were showing on the adaptor and on the front left edge of the notebook, turned it on, and selected normal start; it started up again.  It ran for at least three minutes (which, because of the battery, it would not unless the AC adaptor was functioning) and then, after I moved a few more icons to the Recycle Bin, it suddenly shut down again in the same manner.  
 
I started it again and it has now been running long enough for me to look up my Acer Forum registration information and update it after resetting my password.  I am writing this on another notebook.  The Acer is still running, but I want to ensure it doesn't shut down on me when I am in the middle of a project.

HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 Fan

Feb 15, 2010

My ancient C500 fan is noisy, a constant slight grindy noise. Its been like this for months and I cant take it anymore. Can I clean or replace it w/o too much trouble or is it time for a new laptop? Looks like I'd have to take off the whole bottom to get at it...which Iwill do, if it will shut the damn thing up.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 1500

Apr 18, 2010

i have a compaq presario 1500 with a pentium 4 running XP SP3 on it. I am having trouble with keeping it under a good heat, the fan is constantly running high! i know this needs a good clean but the screws to remove the back casing are so small for me to do this! any suggestions of how i can clean inside? or get to th fan through the top by the keyboard?

secondly it tends to crash every now and then, maybe when it overclocks on the cpu?? i am recently trying out a program called speedswitchXP which seems to be slowing it down to an extent! but not solving the issue.

thirdly and finally, my battery only holds charge for around 10 minutes before needing constant wall plugin! i constantly have it plugged into the wall, could this be a result to any of my problems?

HP/Compaq :: Presario Won't Boot

Dec 3, 2009

got a Presario V2000 that will not boot whatsoever.

Upon pressing the power button, the machine starts up and displays the standard "Windows could not start properly" screen. Every option I choose, from the three Safe mode options, to the Last Known Good Config, to Start Windows Normally will not work.

I choose an option and everything goes smoothly, the Windows XP splash screen pops up & stays there for a few seconds, then goes blanks for a slightly longer length of time before a blue screen pops up. I can't remember the first few numbers, but the rest I'm pretty sure is accurate:

(a series of letters/numbers is here) (Registry File Failure)

The registry cannot load the file
SysCommandSysCom32ConfigSOFTware
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, (something I cant remember), or not writable

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical assistance.

.....and it pretty much repeats over and over in a continuous cycle like this until I power it off.

What I'm wondering is where exactly the problem lies? On the Hard Drive--where the drive itself needs to be replaced or the OS just wiped and reinstalled fresh.......or is this indicative of a hardware failure...which would mean this lappy is pretty much dead?

HP/Compaq :: Presario V6305NR

Apr 2, 2009

On pressing start button, laptop starts, but blank screen comes. After every few seconds, it keeps on rebooting, but nothing happens.

I have tried pressing F10 and Esc button on startup, but nothing happens.

Moving finger over multimedia touch buttons causes them to beep.

Few times, it shows the BIOS, but does not detect the hard-drive.

Very rarely, everything works fine and OS boots and works fine (without any sign of problem).

I replaced RAMs, hard-drive and DVD Reader in other laptop and there they worked absolutely fine.

I even tried removing the battery, connecting external monitor, keyboard, but nothing worked.

BIOS version is F.3D.
When opened, CPU fan and heatsink were dustfree.

Product Specs: HP Presario V6305NR, 1.6 GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-50, 1024MB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm), NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA)

HP/Compaq :: Presario V2000 AC

Apr 15, 2009

I have a Presario V2000.

After not using for about 1 week I turned it on so I could clean it from viruses.

Got the battery alert and then it shutdown meanwhile I was pluging the cord in (Targus AC cord with

blue light).

When I connected the AC to the power (not connected yet to the laptop) it "turned on" and still today

shows a blue light. But once I plug it to the laptop the blue light disappears after 3-5 seconds!

Not at the beginning nor the end of this process the laptop will turn on if I press the power button

for 'x' seconds. If I plug the cord, the computer doesn't show any "power light" and then the blue

light from the Targus AC fades off.................

HP/Compaq :: HP G50 & G60- Presario Cq-50 &60 VS. C700

Jan 18, 2009

I am so much happier with this notebook than I was with my Presario C714NR.

Why;
Upgraded Intel GMA 4500M 768MB Max VRAM VS. 384MB on C700 GMA x3100
Upgraded support for 8GB Max Memory VS. 3GB with the C700 **Some G/CQ's can only handle 4GB
15.6" Screen not really a big deal from the 15.4" C700
HDMI Port VS. none on the C700
Media Card is standard in the G series.. VS. optional in C700 series.
Discrete Graphics offerings available for the G series and CQ-Series VS. integrated only C700
G/CQ offers shiny black top finish. C700 More grainy finish.
Better gaming performance, however, not really a gaming laptop.

HP has made some great improvements to the Compaq offering, however compaq will always lack some of the premium features like FingerPrint reader......

HP/Compaq :: LCD- Presario F700

May 8, 2010

just yesterday i started having a bit of trouble with my screen. when I open it to a full position so it is at optimum tilt for viewing, the colors become slightly washed out and whites gain a blueish tinge, while blacks have this sort of red static/noise behind them. However, when i tilt the screen to a very acute angle, the colors return to normal. I think it might be a connection that got a little loosened- i dropped my laptop onto a car floor a few days ago while on a trip.

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini Keyboard Versus Acer Aspire One Keyboard

Feb 24, 2009

I currently have an AA1 and am curious to those who tried typing on both the HP Mini and the AA1 keyboards and noticed a difference. I believe the HP's keyboard is 92% and the AA1's is 89% I believe. It feels "okay" to type on, obviously not the best due to its size compared to a normal keyboard, but am wondering if the HP's is worth the price jump (paid 300 for mine).

HP/Compaq :: Presario C717NR Screen

Apr 15, 2010

if I opened the screen anymore than 4-5 inches, it would freeze half the screen and turn the over half into a complete jumbled mess. I ordered replacement screen about 2 months ago, and w/ me being lazy and all, it's been sitting on my office floor. I've been using the laptop daily, but instead it stays on my desk and is running through an Acer desktop monitor w/o any issues whatsoever.

So I brokedown and started installing the new screeen today, only to get this when I switched the output back over to the laptop:

It made an audible whining noise both times I switched over, so I quickly switched it off. At this point I'm wondering if the cable from the motherboard to the screen is the issue, but I don't wanna keep throwing parts at a computer this only cost me $250 brand new.

Also, when I finally get this figured out...I can't remember which plug this mic connector goes into.

It can either go here next to the keyboard cable or over here by the fan.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 2100 Locking Up

Mar 2, 2009

I have a Presario 2195U and it locks all the time. At first it seemed to do it at random, but then I noticed it would lock every time during installation of XP Service Pack 3, or other long laborious installations. Any time you hear the fan kick into overdrive it seems that it will lock up shortly after. It locked several times during the installation of Windows XP itself.

I hear the fan spinning, and I keep the system on a hard, flat surface to maximize airflow, but it will still lock up during larger-scale installations.

I ask if the issue could possibly stem from over-heating; the system reaches a certain temperature and locks as a fail-safe. I've also noticed that it will lock less frequently when the battery is removed. When I remove it, the battery is very warm, Perhaps the battery is absorbing some of the heat being produced in the system, contributing to the overall temperature inside the chassis?

I have since installed Ubuntu Linux on it and it locks MUCH less frequently, and from what I understand, Linux is much less CPU-intensive. I do like Linux, but it isn't suitable for what I use the system for.

If over-heating could be the issue, I'd like to purchase a better/more powerful fan, power draw isn't so much an issue as it's almost always plugged in.

The specifications for the system are:
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 1.8ghz
Memory: 1gb SDRAM
Graphics: ATI Radeon Mobile
HDD: 120gb
OS: Ubuntu 8.10

If the problem is indeed thermal-related, then comes the question of how do I open the chassis...

HP/Compaq :: My Presario Is Feeling Blue

May 2, 2009

I bought a Compaq Presario CQ60-211DX because it was cheap and I wanted a "backup" machine as I paid way too much for my MacBook to get "rough" with it (i.e. travel, put it in a full bookbag, take it to my school in a relatively high crime area, etc).

Well, basically you get what you pay for because this machine seems to run slower than molasses.

However, an annoying problem has popped up in that there seems to be a blue-streaked "tint" that started on pics and some video, that now exists on regular webpages as well. I haven't smashed the screen or spilled liquid on it. I have a 1 year warranty on it that's still good, but I'd rather try to fix it myself.

HP/Compaq :: Presario R4000- Window 7

Jul 14, 2009

I have Compaq Presario R4000 128MB graphic memory and 2GB memory. Now I am currently installed XP professional. Will I be able to install Window 7? If so, how could I install the drivers (VGA, network card, sound card and so on)? Should I just use Window XP drivers CD? I haven't tried with Window 7 RC 1 yet.

And for window 7, what's the difference between upgrade version and full version? Or is it the same if I have already window XP? I know only upgrade version is cheaper. Can I get clean installation with upgrade version? What about 32 bits and 64 bits, different CD or will it choose automatically?

It has a Intel Celeron 575 running at 2,00 GHz and a Intel GMA 4500mhd on a Intel GL40 mainboard.
It reports that it runs at 60c when idle, but it feels very hot when in use.

Even my own system runs cooler and it includes a ATI Mobility X1600 that can get a little toasty when in use.

HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 Drive

Feb 10, 2009

I've got an old C501NR with 80 GB HD that blue screened and died. Disk check indicated failed sectors. Wont boot into windows. Hp said its dead or dying. So I bought a 160 GB and Windows wont see any of it, neither does Bios. HP said it was too big, would only handle 120 GB so I ordered one of those, same speed/cache as the original. Same issue, its not found by Bios or Windows setup disc.

Here is the fun part: HP now says I can only use a certain part number which seems like total BS to me. Surethe 2 I tried were western digital and they come with Seagates, but so what? So if it isnt THAT that prevents me the puter from seeing the new drives, and that seems highly unlikely, what is it?? The drives are seating and connecting just fine.
