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 :: TravelMate 7520 Crystal Eye Webcam

Oct 18, 2008

I have a TravelMate 7520 with Crystal Eye Webcam, I had to reinstall my vista. Once this was done my webcam didnt work, it showed camera not found.

I have been playing about with it, which ended up meaning I unstall everything (I think). I have installed loads of drivers and software for the webcam but all failed, the camera just doesnt seem to turn on...

I have taken my screen apart unplugged it, uninstalled software, plugged in and reinstall but nothing..Plus once I have installed the driver, I look in device manager and see nothing relating to my webcam.

what I need to download, how to install and how to check the driver is in place

Acer TravelMate P653-V :: Computer Starts Itself After Shut It Down

Nov 18, 2014

My computer (acer P653-V) is starting itself after shutting it down. Not right away - it takes some random time - sometime hours. In BIOS WAKE ON LAN is disabled. OS is windows 7 and at network adapter configuration - wake on magic packet and all of that is disabled.
 
Don't understand how is it possible? It is getting little bit creepy and disruptive already.

Acer :: Aspire 7520

Apr 3, 2009

I've recently bought the 7520, and at the moment everything is working hunky dory. In fact, it is quite a good machine.

I've made myself both a full bootable recovery disk, and a disk with all the drivers and applications. The only bugbear for me is the customizability that I want to do. I have never owned a laptop before, preferring my desktop pc which I have upgraded to a wonderful, powerful beast.

I bought the laptop so I could be elsewhere in my home and be connected to the net via TP-Link. Even this works great and at full speed. So, currently no problem.

Obviously the OS is Vista 32 bit, which I want to downgrade to XP. On the Acer website there are no XP drivers for the inner components of the 7520, and I am assuming that all the Acer bumpf like 'enet' and 'empowerment', etc, are part and parcel of the drivers...or are they simply Acer software which you can delete without any degredation to the operability of the system?

The truth is, I want my laptop to be a mirror microcosm of my desktop pc. Is it possible for me to downgrade to XP, but beforehand, to find and backup the proper XP drivers for the inner components of my laptop before I attempt to do so?

Acer :: 7520-5168 With 4GB RAM

Sep 18, 2008

Am about to purchase a brand new ACER 7520 - 5168 (Turion 64 X2 TL-60 2 GHz). This is supplied from the factory with 2GB of RAM but am going to upgrade it to 4GB.

First of all I need to know if the factory supplied 2GB Ram is installed in one slot and the other slot is vacant. Some versions come with 2 x 1GB Ram installed so both slots will be occupied.

This is supplied with Vista Home Premium edition. I read somewhere that 4GB Ram needs Vista x64 to work. Is this true ?

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 :: Upgrading CPU In Aspire 7520

Dec 17, 2008

I have the Acer Aspire 7520 Laptop with the AMD Turion X2 TK-55 1.8Ghz Socket One.

Using PC Wizard it says I have a Acer Fuquene motherboard and nVidia nForce 560 Chipset. My question is, will this accept any of the AMD Socket One Processors? I was looking at maybe getting a TL-68 2.4Ghz..

I originally bought this computer for my wife so I wasnt too picky on the specs, but now Im finding it more useful than my high powered desktop since I can take it anywhere around the house I want. Only problem is that the laptop just needs a little more grunt for some of the encoding and stuff I do occasionally..

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Gaming

Mar 15, 2008

I think it has something to do with my CPU getting really fast 100%

I bought a Acer Aspire 7520 for using it on college. It came with Vista Home Premium and I was planning to put XP asap on it. But because everything went pretty smoothly I did not saw a reason to do it inmediatly. So I could play games like Half-life 2, Counter-strike source, and Team Fortress 2 perfectly fine. But after some time I got annoyed like hell by Vista, and by downloading a crack I accidently installed a virus so everything got even worse. So I thought, okay lets install XP inmediatly! After I formatted my hard-drive I installed it with Service pack 2, and it all went great.

Well that's what I thought at the first few seconds. Because after having installed all the drivers I started Team Fortress 2. And suddenly around every 10-20 seconds my ping went from a 30 to 90 or higher. And that ofcourse caused my fps to drop, so this made it impossible to play Team Fortress 2. And after trying allot different drivers I decided to go back to Vista, because the games I wanted to play ran great on it. So now I have Vista Home Premium installed with Service Pack 1 and the drivers from acer that are made to be used with Vista + SP1. But now I got the same ****ing problem, I had in XP. For some unknown reason my ping decides to raise randomly. And makes it again not possible to play a game online because my fps then drops from a nice 72 fps to 9 or lower.

I installed every driver that Acer released for my laptop that are compatible with Vista (32bit) + Service pack 1.

I just have no idea what causes this! I have a antivirus + firewall. And a special anti-spyware/malware/other crap that makes your laptop/pc slow...............

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Bad Performance

Jan 2, 2008

My Aspire 7520 laptop is running good , and all goes well.. But when I want to play a game (lets say WoW) , the game has a strange , stuttering lag... Like when you have to many applications on. Its almost if my computer can't handle it.

My Laptop has these specifications , and i wonder if it has anything to do with this.

Windows Vista Home Premium
AMD 64 Athlon x 2 (Dual-core processor)
NVIDIA GeForce 7000M videocard
120GB hard drive disk space
2024MB RAM DDR

I just bought it brand new, I've had it for about 2 weeks now. And I was wondering how i could make the games go faster... Ive looked about everywhere and no solutions so far.

What i have tried:
-Letting the game run on only 1 core-FAILED
-Trying to set up XP on my computer-FAILED miserably to the point where i was afraid i screwed up my computer fully. Lucky someone helped me, as i couldn't run the backup for some reason... he let me autoboot vista without autobooting XP... next time ill need more info before i F up my computer

(Also , would it help in game performance when i downgrade to XP?)

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.

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 7520 Will Not Start Or Then Will Not Shut Off

Oct 10, 2009

My Acer Aspire 7520 Gemstone Vista,

Will not start but I can hear the fan start then stop after a couple of secs, also the power and hdd leds flash on for 4 secs and then off for 4 secs and keep looping.

But then if I press the on/off button to turn the machine off it will not turn off, even holding the button for 4 secs or more. The only way to turn it off is by disconnecting the battery.

Nothing is connected and nothing appears on the screen.

Acer :: Aspire 7520-5460 Graphics

Jun 23, 2009

I bought my laptop last year around christmas time. Surprisingly the nvidia 7000m performed very well. I was able to run Gothic 3 on low specs, and also fallout 3 which ran well on medium specs. But about 3-5 months ago the performance deteriorated a lot. it got so bad that i cant even watch movies on it anymore. All the framerates, on games it ran fairly well before, are unplayable now. I just hope i didnt fry the gpu because it did overheat before, but i just thought it was normal. Ofcourse if i new about this forum before none of that might have happened. There many useful posts here...

Acer :: Crashed WinVista On Aspire 7520

Oct 17, 2009

crashed 7520. Vista bsod's on startup and continuously reboots. In the 'Startup Repair' utility, The 'System Recovery Options' box lists no windows Vista installations to repair, even after loading the proper storage drivers... When I browse for Drivers, I can access D:, E: (CD), and X: (??), but not C:. When I try to access C:, I am told I have to format it before I can use it... Looks like C: (and Vista) is toast. Luckily, There are no 'Lost Pictures, etc, issues on this one, just looking for a return to functionality.

What do I need to do to get this machine bootable?

Is there any way to recover from here?

From what I have read so far, It seems I'll need a WinVista disk, but what Version?? (I can read the Product Key, but not the version info on the MS sticker).

I've also seen lots of "driver recovery" CDs and downloads out there, but Do I need them? Will they help me recover the existing Vista install?, or are they just drivers that I can dl from Acer?

What is X:? a third partition?

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Wont Turn On

Apr 12, 2010

Update:
Just wrapped the notebook inside a blanket and overheated it, then let it cool down.
Now it works.
All i have to do now is to remove the Nvidia gpu stuff left behind and it should be ready for use again.

Edit:
My problem is exacly the same as the one described in this thread:
Aspire 7520 - will not start or then will not shut off
But i could not find any fix.

My stepdads Acer Aspire 7520G wont turn on anymore.
The wierd thing is that it was working yesterday.
Now it just keep rebooting like seen in this YouTube clip.
[url]

Its out of warranty so i was hoping i could try fixing it myself.
With the help of the community here of course.

I been randomly searching Google for help and what i have found out is that this is a common problem, but i have yet to find any fixes other than the suggestion to remove the motherboard and reheat it inside an oven..................

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Tuning Wi-fi Router

May 30, 2008

This is my internet system: I got a VPN type of connection, i got LAN first, then a direct VPN. The provider hooked me up with those LAN settings (IP, mask, gateaway), so i HAVE to set em the local network settings before i connect, otherwise, my MAC adress gets blocked. After I have bought the laptop, I felt like makin' some Wi-Fi around; so I got MSI RG54GS2 now.

I don't know how to make all this work now, lol. I called my ISP company boss and asked him to disable the router's MAC adress' blocking, so I can free tuning my new router now.

Just gimme some advice which type of connection I should pick, where I should put my previous LAN settings n stuff like that.

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?

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 :: 1410 Broken Hinge Options

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?
