Acer :: Extensa 4230 - Laptop Powers On No Screen, No Processing

Aug 28, 2009

I don't know what happened, but my laptop's not working.

I was using my laptop as a desktop computer (no battery) when I accidentally switched the switch off. After switching it on, I tried to turn on my laptop and the first thing I noticed was the blank screen. Then the power turned off, and then turned on again. The fan is working, but nothing else is. I don't hear or notice any processing, so I'm pretty sure nothing's working right except for the fan and the lights indicating that it's on.

I tried to reset the laptop by disconnecting it from power and then turning it back on after 30 seconds - but no luck.

I have an Extensa 4230 by the way.

Acer :: Extensa 5420: How Is The Laptop

Jan 18, 2008

I am thinking of buying one if these soon from BestBuy. I have an Aspire 5003 and no problems with it. I will be getting this for 250 as I have a broken PDA with replacement plan and they no longer sell this model. I will probably buy it tomorrow or next weekend.

Acer :: Extensa 5510 Laptop

Jan 15, 2009

I was using my laptop one day (I was on Hotmail) and it just ground to a halt. I waited for about 45 mins but still nothing so I unplugged it and removed the battery. I recognise this may have not been the best way to deal with the problem. After that, I switched back on and it seemed to be booting up fine. After apparently loading and being ready to use, although the mouse/cursor would move around OK, it would not react when I tried to select something. It would occasionally put up the eggtimer as though something was happening but nothing ever did. Eventually it just goes black. I've tried alt, ctrl and delete as that's about as far as my technical knowledge goes but it didn't do anything.

Acer :: Adding Intel 5300AGN Wifi To Travelmate 4230

Oct 12, 2009

I've been wanting to upgrade this laptop, but it seems very snappy even with "only" 1gb RAM and 1.6ghz C2D.

One area it does need improvement on is the built-in G wireless. I would like to upgrade this to an Intel 5300AGN, but the 4230 only has two antenna connectors (for those not in the know, the 5300 has three connectors). An option of course is to install the 5100.

Where can I find the thread on a mod to add a third antenna?

Slightly off topic... What's the best N router or WAP for the 5300 to exploit the 300-450mbps theoretical transfer rate?

Acer :: Extensa 5420-5687 Laptop Will Not Power Up

Apr 24, 2008

just got an Acer Extensa 5420-5687 laptop (used no warranty), added a new hdd and plugged in and I get nothing, the battery light does not light up, I swapped power supplies with my 5102wlmi and I still get nothing, no lights no nothing I have a feeling I know where this is going which might be the trash bin, but I thought I might ask if there is something I should be looking for. I have tried holding the power button without a battery and all that neat stuff. The battery charge light does not come on at all, its been plugged in for about an hour now and I get nothing.......

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Slow Graphics Processing

Jan 6, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 7520 that is 2 years old, the system specs are:

- AMD Athlon 1.8GHz Dual Core.
- 17" WXGA+ CrystalBrite LCD.
- 4 GB DDR2.
- 500 GB HDD.
- NVIDIA GeForce 7000M.

It worked fine for a year but starting the second year, the sound card started to fail, and by that I mean that the sound sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't, but I solved this problem by buying an external sound card.

Two months ago I accidentally hit the laptop in the wall and after that incident the Graphics card can't process anything that requires high or medium graphics for example:

-When I play 720p videos the video runs very slow, it should be noted that I used to play 720p withouth any problem before the accident.

-The Windows Experience Index for Graphics went from 3.4 to 2.0 after the accident.

-Games that used to run at 30-40 FPS, now run at 2 - 3 FPS max.

- Windows AERO runs very slow now, so I if I want to use windows I have to run Windows Classic theme.

Things I've done:

1) Format my PC and tried different OSs XP, 7.
2) Flash the BIOS.
3) Change the Hard Drive with another one.
4) Change the RAM.
None of these things worked.

Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?

- screen went bad?
- Graphics card went bad?
or ?

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Powers Off With Screen Tilt

Nov 17, 2014

I am operating a Dell Inspiron 3520 and have been having trouble with the machine powering down and becoming unresponsive with screen tilt (not closure). The computer appears to be functioning normally until I tilt the screen forward, at which time the screen goes black and all lights indicating power turn off, as if the machine has powered down. I cannot make the machine power on again for some time until I have taken the battery out, put it back, and pressed the power button several times. This problem has occurred more frequently in recent days and I currently cannot turn the machine on to troubleshoot.

My fear is a dysfunction in the sleep trigger within the screen/lid closure system.

Dell :: E1705: Battery No Longer Powers My Laptop (NOT Bad Battery)

Dec 1, 2009

Last night I was using my E1705 running on battery when the thing just suddenly zapped off. I had recently glanced at the battery meter which was 75% full. I pressed the button on the actual battery which shows 3 of 5 lights on the charge meter.

The battery itself is only 1 month old and has been performing flawlessly. I just thought it was something random so I plugged the machine in and it started up.

I didn't think anything else of it till today when I went to move my laptop, removed the power cord, and the laptop turned off. I checked the physical battery meter which still reads 3 of 5 lights .....

Acer :: 1350 Powers Up But Won't Boot (x 2)

Oct 20, 2009

a friend of mine gave me their Acer 1350 laptop to repair - the fault was that the screen suddenly went blank, even though the power goes on and the fan turns. When I first looked at it, the screen came on, it started to boot into Windows (XP Home), it got past the loading screen (with the horizontal scrolling thingies) and then the screen went blank, and ever since I've never been able to get the screen to come on.

I tested it and couldn't hear the hard drive seeking, so I guessed that the mainboard or CPU had failed. I took it apart (using a service manual as a guide) to see if there was anything I could do to fix it, I removed the CPU and reseated it, used new thermal paste and put it all back together, but it still had the same problem. I had made sure that the screen cables were connected back correctly, as per the service manual instructions.

Also, the power light didn't come on, even though the CPU fan comes on when you press the power button (for a few seconds), and then after leaving it on for a few minutes the fan runs again for a few seconds, so something is working!

Anyway, I bought a second hand Acer 1350 off Ebay for 70, which was running fine, just didn't have the hard drive. As soon as I got it, I put the hard drive from my friend's Acer into the new laptop, and it booted up Windows fine, everything ran perfectly. Problem solved. Or so I thought.

After turning it off, I tried to turn it back on. Result - it now has exactly the same problem as the first laptop! When you press the power button, the fan goes on for a few seconds, but the screen remains blank. The hard drive doesn't seek.

I've also tried it without the hard drive, hoping that maybe that was something to do with it, but it makes no difference, the screen is still blank, so I can't even look at the BIOS.

I have been racking my brains over this - what could possibly have caused this problem in both laptops? Some kind of virus on the hard drive, which stops the laptop from even showing me the boot screen? The screen stays off no matter what I do. The power light doesn't come on, even though the fan has started turning, and the hard drive is running (but not seeking).

Acer :: Aspire 9500 Powers Off (possibly Overheats) Before Windows Loads

Mar 28, 2009

Acer Aspire 9504.

First of all it runs in Windows completely rock solid. I have ran stress utilities for over 24 hours, and the system is completely stable.

My problem is that it is very unstable before windows loads. For example, if I simply leave it in the BIOS setup for 5 minutes the computer will just power off. It is also quite hot underneath. This occurs also if I boot from DOS (or other e.g. XP recovery disk) boot disk to run some utilities - the system will run for 5 minutes or so, and then just power off. The time that I get before it powers off decreases if I immediately switch it on again, suggesting an overheating issue. I did not have this problem when I first got the laptop 3 years ago.

This problem is really annoying as I want to run some low-level utilities to repartition my hard disk and also possibly reinstall windows, but this problem is preventing that.

Any ideas? Perhaps some strange software that I installed? ACPI config? Memory issue? BIOS issue? Computer is hot in several areas under where the CPU / TV tuner / graphics / memory are located .

My system spec:
- Pentium M 760 2GHz
- Ati X700 256MB graphics
- 2GB crucial RAM (2 x 1 GB DDR2 533 CL4) (upgraded from 1GB over a year ago and fully tested to be working)
- Newest BIOS from Acer installed

From system information:

OS NameMicrosoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
OS ManufacturerMicrosoft Corporation................................

Sony :: Style Order Processing

Sep 12, 2009

I recently ordered a Vaio FW-490 CTO with an estimated ship date of 9/16, but the order has been processing since the day I ordered it. Also, today I recieved an email:

"We regret to inform you that all or part of your Sony Style order SW********* has been delayed.

In order to serve you better in the future, our warehouse system was shutdown tonight. Regrettably, we encountered problems with your order that prevented your order from being fulfilled in time for the shutdown. Unfortunately, we will be unable to ship your order until 9/18/2009."

Is it normal for it to be in processing this long, or should I call them to see the the "problems with my order" are?

Dell Latitude E7440 :: Loud Buzzing Noises On Processing

Jan 15, 2014

2 days ago I was given a new work laptop - the E7440 (its brand new).

Straight away I noticed some loud buzzing noises which a fellow colleague said was the fan. It's quite annoying. I soon noticed however when my laptop was idle these noises would stop, and when I clicked they would start again. Whenever I ask the Laptop to do anything these noises start up, and considering im active on the machine all day.

There are high pitched, buzzing noises. And as mentioned are aligned to when the laptop is processing something. They also make sounds when I scroll the mouse for example.

Sony :: Z890Max Battery Life For Word Processing On Transatlantic Flights

Apr 28, 2010

I did a search and read various thread on the older Sony Vaio Z battery life. However, these are all in the year 2008 and pre Windows 7.

Vaio Z battery life tests

Vaio Z reviewers getting 9hr battery life!

I do a fair bit of transatlantic flights. So I'd like to know what battery life I can get with the Sony Z890, Windows 7, with all processes such as WIFI, Bluetooth etc turned off and being used in word processing and reading mode using the integrated graphics, with brightness at 50%. SLOW is fine as word processing is easy.

Anyone has a sense of the battery life I should get?

What if I turn on WIFI and use it as a netbook for surfing at airports?

I can't seem to find a recent discussion on battery life. The 2008 threads has a huge disparity with some people claiming something like 9 hours doing basic stuff! Hard to believe but thought I'd check with you guys.

Acer :: Extensa Overheating

Apr 26, 2009

Ever since I bought this laptop I've had an issue of it shutting itself down. Almost always while watching youtube videos. I found out about the handy little tool called coretemp and I see my processors running about 68+ nearly all the time. When I have websites loaded that have flash animations, ads, videos (youtube), it only gets hotter and hotter. It nearly always reaches 90+ (Celsius) and then shuts down.

I read about it needing a bios update for many people who say they have the problem with the laptop screen going black, but I think mine is heat related.

My laptop runs around 68 when idle and when busy it gets hot. Right now I have Google Chrome open with two tabs, one is this webpage and the other is gmail and its running at 75 celsius. Performance tab in task manager says it has a processor load of only 1%.

I keep a watch on the temperature and as long as I start closing programs and windows when it reaches around 80 it will start to cool down. So as long as I can keep an eye on it the laptop will run fine for days with no problems. If I forget to check and it gets too hot it'll shut down. I'll check the logs and sure enough the last few lines of the last log file will look something like this ...

Acer :: Extensa 5610 Not Seeing All 4GB Of RAM

I just bought 2x2gb ram from my Acer Extensa 5610 and my Windows 7 x64 can see it right, but only use 3gb. Resource monitor says the other 1gb is Hardware reserved. In the Bios theres an info saying extended memory 3gb. Is that what the problem is? coz its not something I can set in this version of bios.

Do i have to upgrade my bios? if so, to what version? The manual clearly says i can upgrade to 4gb. (extensa 5610 has intel 945 chipset)

Acer :: Extensa 4630G

Mar 12, 2009

Have you guys heard about Acer's Extensa line of products? Well, so far I've just seen them in Acer sites from Asia, and I was wondering how many people actually use them already.

Another thing, I was also looking for someone who particularly owns an Acer Extensa 4630G--the most recent budget one (I think) with Intel C2D T5800, ~4GB 667MHz RAM, I think with 320GB Harddrive, and ~nVidia 9300M GS~ (256MB dedicated)

For people who own this kind of notebook (or those with the 4630ZG, the one with the Pentium Dual Core instead of C2D), how does the notebook handle? Does it heat up easily? Does it perform well with relatively recent games/3D modelling applications etc.?
