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 TravelMate P653 :: Noisy Fan On Bootup

Jan 5, 2015

I didn't use my laptop over Christmas as I was away. It was left plugged into the mains but powered down.
 
The first time I booted it after my return the fan suddenly started up when the Starting Windows message appeared. It then remained at near maximum speed long after everything had loaded. This has never happened before.
 
I have managed to workaround this by pressing Fn + F4 which places the laptop in sleep mode. After several seconds the fan powers down.
 
If I then press a key to wake the laptop up everything is fine and the fan doesn't run at high speed. I can hear it gently running in the background.
 
For the remainder of that session the fan behaves itself. But when I start the laptop up from cold the whole process starts again and I have to repeat the actions to turn it off.
 
I'm mystified why it's doing this. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Acer ePower Management v6.0 via the eRecovery Management utility but it has made no difference.
 
I've also checked the BIOS (F2 at bootup) and can see nothing there that influences the fan speed.

Acer :: Fan- Shut Downs On TravelMate 2423WXMI

Jul 6, 2007

Well for about 3-4 months my acer has been playing up. I'l admit its not the greatest of the acers but that doesn't mean it shouldn't work. The problems im getting:

-When im playing Java games, or i leave my P.C on or I have the power cable plugged in(whilst on p.c) it gets hot..

-The laptop then beggeins to lagg...

-And then it just switches off without a warning.

- Also theres a terrible noise in my fan(atleast i think its my fan). I would send it to acer but my warrenty is out. I brought this P.C about 1 year and a bit ago.

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.

Sony :: Vaio Laptop Crashed :: Shut Down To Prevent Damage To Your Computer

Apr 6, 2010

I bought a sony vaio laptop a little over 2 years ago. I never had a problem untill about 4 monthes ago. I got the "blue screen of death". It said something about the BIOS but would never stay on long enough for me to totaly read it. I went to Best Buy and asked if they had any ideas.

The guy said to contact Sony and get a recovery disk, so i did. I ran the cd but half way through it I got another blue screen that read:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time youve seen this stop error screen, follow these steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space .....

Acer :: Fan Starts And Stops Constantly

Jan 6, 2009

Model: Acer Aspire 4720-4538

The CPU fan is totally off when the CPU temp is under 55C (according to Everest). Once it's over 55C, it goes onto its low setting. Somewhere higher up, it goes to its high setting.

The problem: Even just browsing the web and doing light desktop work (IM, Explorer, Word), the CPU temp creeps up to 55C pretty easily. Once it does, the fan shoots on, but it only takes about 3 seconds to get to below 55C, so it shuts off again. Without the fan, the temp goes up past 55C again, and the cycle restarts.

The result is an on-off-on-off-on-off fan that turns on or stays off for only about 2-5 seconds at a time. REALLY annoying, esspecially in an otherwise quiet library environment. I can see people looking over at me with a "what the f is wrong with your computer" look.

I've updated the BIOS to its latest as of this date (Jan 06 2009) on the Acer site (3810), that didn't help any.

I've read (on this site) that Acer uses something propertiary to control their fan, causing normal fan control software to not work on Acer's.

Does anybody know of any software that will let me control the speed of the fan? I tried the fan control software for the Acer Aspire One, which didn't seem to work.

Acer :: 1350 Starts Up But Won't POST

Oct 28, 2009

I have an Acer 1350, when I press the power button the CPU fan comes on for five seconds or so, but the screen doesn't come on, and the hard drive doesn't seek. If I leave it on, after a few minutes the CPU fan comes on again, so obviously part of it is working, but it just won't boot up.

The screen is definitely working fine because I've tested it on another Acer 1350, the hard drive is fine as well, also tested on another Acer 1350, the memory is fine, ditto.

Acer :: V5-573 Does Not Start / Sometimes Starts For 2 Seconds

Jan 27, 2015

I have a problem with my Acer V5-573, 6 months old.
 
Some days ago it did not start when pressing the start button. I removed the charger and tried again, still nothing. Then i removed the backside to get access to the battery. I removed the battery and tried connecting just the charger.
 
That causes the laptop to start for 2 seconds like normally, the fans start for like 1 second and then just shuts down and the start button wont work again. This happens every time I connect the charger and it's off battery.
 
Sometimes when I press the start button and works and starts like it should and then at a random time it shuts down once again. Mostly it just doesnt react to the start button.
 
I haven't replaced or modified the original hardware.

Acer :: 2420 Notebook - Starts Slowing Down Again

Nov 25, 2008

I've been experiencing kind of a problem with my Acer 2420 laptop. When I start up its usually pretty fast, but eventually it begins to slow down to the point where I have to restart the system completely. I have it running Windows Vista Home Edition at 512MB of ram, 1.5Ghz.

Its really weird because sometimes when I unplug the charger it works again but after I plug it back in, like 10 minutes later it starts slowing down again. I can't figure it out.

Acer Aspire V5 571 :: Does Not Get To POST - Keyboard Flashes And Fan Starts Then Nothing

Oct 31, 2014

I have a two year old V5 571, a week ago it stopped booting up when I pressed the power button. There are no beeps and the laptop doesn't boot as far as the POST screen.

 I've tried with battery and without and taken out the CMOS battery to reset it but still have the same problem.
 
 As it's only two years old I would hope the motherboard hasn't gone.

Acer :: Aspire 5102 - Ubuntu Starts With A BIOS BUG #81[49435000]

Apr 17, 2009

When I start it everything is fine. You see the Acer logo. Ubuntu starts with a BIOS BUG #81[49435000]. Then when the Ubuntu load screen just freezes. When I reboot it the screen is dead. But after a cold start it's fine.

I don't think it's because of the bug, I've read it's because I have a 32-bit linux on a 64-bit. When I try to install XP it works for a while but then the screen just dies.

Acer :: 6930g - Won't Shut Off Sdfasdfadf

May 24, 2009

bought a acer6930G 3 months back preinstalled with vista home premium SP 1 32 bit..core2duo, 4GB, 320 GB HDD, 256MB Nvidia, 16" LCD
CBVDFSGDFGDFSG
getting a lot of problems with it already:
1) won't shut off either on battery or ac power. Shuts down and after couple of minutes restarts and i get the Acer Arcade screen. when i Exit from that says windows XP is hibernating and turns off. Then again restarts to after some time. I tried putting on sleep and but comes out of sleep. My entire battery gets drained throughout the night so i assume must be restarting many times..Also with battery even if i pick it up and put it in the case it restarts.

2) while working the Windows Media Centre window keeps on popping up almost continuously for about 20-30 times n then stops. then will start all over again all by itself. (maybe this is related to the shut down/sleep problems?)

Sony :: Is Your Vaio Z Series Laptop Your Main Computer Or Secondary Computer

Apr 22, 2009

Do Vaio Z Series laptop owners use their laptop as their main primary computer or a secondary computer? Do Vaio Z series owners also have a desktop pc as their primary computer and use their Vaio Z Series as a secondary computer? Or is your Vaio Z Series laptop your one and only computer that you always use? Is it comfortable using the 13 inch screen for long periods of time?

Reason i ask is some people have more then one computer and some people just have one.

I'm just wondering if the Vaio Z Series laptop is a good choice as a main computer since it's got good specs and it's nicely portable but will the 13 inch screen be ok to use for long periods even at the higher 1600 x 900 resolution?

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 8920G :: Random Shut Down

Oct 6, 2014

I have an Acer 8920G Win 7 Pro which is randomly shutting down only in when connected to 'AC' power. It does not happen when using 'battery' alone or in 'safe mode'. I've tried,investigated, and corrected all overheating issues, cleaned fans, changed AC power supplies, disabled graphics card, to no avail. All drivers are up to date. This has been happening over a period of 3 months now. Can not use the laptop except when battery is charged or in safe mode.

I removed the battery.  Same thing.  I put the HD in an external case and hooked it up to another laptop and it is fine.

Acer Aspire M5-481PT :: Will Not Start Up Normally Or Shut Down

Nov 5, 2014

About three months ago I was using my laptop and it was working fine and I closed it and set it aside, not plugged in.  My power settings were that nothing happened other than the screen turns off when I close the lid.  Well the next day I went to use my laptop and i opened it and hit the power button but it was dead, so I plugged it in and pressed the power button and still nothing happened.  The only way I can turn the laptop on is to use the small battery reset button on the back of the computer.  Once it turns on it starts up no problem, nothing out of the ordinary.  When I use it and try to shut it down regardless of whether I press the power button or go to the power button on the menu to shut it down it goes through the shutdown and the monitor shuts off for about 3 seconds and then the computer turns back on. 
 
I have done everything I can think of to get the computer to work.  I have reinstalled windows 8.1 from a disk after completely restoring my laptop.  I opened the computer up and disconnected the battery for a few minutes, I tried to start the laptop in safe mode, I reinstalled the BIOS, I have run all the troubleshooting and run windows update to make sure everything is up to date.
