Acer :: Travelmate 5520 Turns On & Off Every Few Seconds

Apr 12, 2009

Acer ASPIRE 5520 Model ICW50. When I press the power button the light comes on and the fan spins but it shuts down every few seconds and repeats this action continuously. I have narrowed it down to a faulty motherboard. Has anyone been able to isolate the cause of this problem to a component or components on the motherboard?

HP/Compaq :: Every Time I Shut Down My Pc It Restarts Itself Like 5 Seconds After It Turns Off

Jul 9, 2009

For some reason every time I shut down my pc it restarts itself like 5 seconds after it turns off. I looked it up and someone said try unplugging the Ethernet cable. So I did and when I unplug when I shut it down it doesn't restart itself but only when I leave the Ethernet cable in it. Why is that? Also down on my currently connected icon by the clock why does it show that i'm connected to two networks? I had xp pro before and it only showed me connected to one network but on this new computer it shows me connected to two networks. Network 2 and Network 3, is that normal?

HP ProBook 4530s Lockups :: Laptop On Hibernate Mode After Few Seconds Turns Back On By Itself

Jun 12, 2013

I have a HP ProBook 4530s, using Windows 7 64-bit OS, Intel Core i3-2310M CPU (2.10 GHz).My laptop is about 21 months old and I am facing some problems when puting my laptop into hibernate mode. Everything was fine for a long time - that is, when I put it in the hibernate mode it turned off and when I pressed the power on button it resumed. However, that isn't the case any longer.Now when I put it in the hibernate mode, it (usually) goes hibernating and after few seconds it turns back on (all by itself!). Sometimes it hibernates for 10 or 20 minutes (or even more) and then again, it turns back on all by itself!This problem just started occuring, I didn't install or update or do anything.

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 Aspire 5560g :: Laptop Freezes For 30 Seconds

Oct 29, 2014

Whenever I close the lid on my Laptop let it sleep for a while I notice when I press enter to resume from that mains screen that it takes maybe 30secs just to load up, before it was always instant. Also my powercord is sort of lose so it goes in and out very fast then I notice that when my power cord comes out that my laptop also freezes for 30secs.
 
I scan my laptop everyday with AVG and Malwarebyts, I use CCleaner weekly and DeFraggler monthly, unless I download lots of files then I'll scan it and if it goes above 5-6% I do a full scan
 
I don't download much. The only games I have on here is WoW, RIFT, Path Of Exile, ArcheAge and 2 other small steam games. I don't use Itunes. On the buttom right corner where my clock is I only have up Raptr, AVG, CCleaner and that's it..
 
It's been doing this for maybe 2 weeks. I I use Windows 7. The only time I update my laptop is when I go to Control Panel and click "Windows Update" and see if there's any.

Acer :: 5520 Won't Power On

Oct 4, 2008

I am having problems with my brother's acer laptop. It's an Acer Aspire 5520. The first time we experienced this problem I tried removing the battery and I placed the battery back again. I plugged the ac adaptor into another outlet. I was able to get a a greenlight on the battery and on the hard drive. For some reason I am not able to get a greenlight on both indicators. I tried plugging the laptop on another outlet. It seems I'm not able to power it up anymore. Is it the battery or the power adapter?

Acer Aspire D255E :: Comes On - Displays Opening Screen Then Shuts Down In Few Seconds

Oct 6, 2014

I just bought an Acer Aspire D255E with a cracked display.  I tested it and it worked fine.  Replaced the display with a brand new one, and the result is that it comes on, displays the opening screen, briefly flashes what looks like the screen you get when you shut down abnormally,then powers down.  It will also power down in about the same time if I F2 into the BIOS.

Acer :: Aspire 5520 Shutdown

Sep 2, 2009

I have a Aspire 5520-5912 laptop I am trouble shooting for a relative that randomly shuts down just before, or shortly after it boots to windows.

I have tested the hard drive in my Desktop and scanned it for viruses, swapped out the memory, re applied thermal paste on the cpu heat sink and made sure it was not clogged with dust.

I think I have it narrowed down to a bad MB or CPU but was wandering if anyone else has had any issues like this and what the problem was.

I have a new OTB acer aspire 5520, and on initial booting everything worked sweetly but when i am trying to access my crystal eye cam on YM or any IM programs it says the webcam is not connected, Now I checked device manager and there is no webcam, so i installed the driver from the erecovery management tool I tried first the BISON driver and utility without success upon installation the program says the computer should display a "found new hardware" message, but nothing showed up. then when it restarted my machine and when i checked on device manager still no cam... next i uninstalled the BISON driver and installed the 2nd one (SUYIN) with the same results.

Acer Aspire V3-572-56T3 :: Wireless Connection Drops After 10-20 Seconds Running Windows 8.1

Jan 21, 2015

I'm having major problems with connecting to the wireless network in the office. It sees the network, allows me to enter the security credentials, then connects (with confimed internet connectivity) but drops out after 10-20 seconds. I have tried the wireless network at a friend's house which worked ok without any interruptions, so it is definitely nothing wrong with the hardware. I'm using a brand new Acer Aspire V3-572-56T3 on Windows 8.1, with all the latest drivers/patches loaded and have tried fiddling with many of the advanced settings for the network adapter to no avail. I logged on to the router to ensure all settings, encryption standards, channels etc. were matching but the problem keeps persisting. This has been ongoing for two days now and is driving me insane as I really need to have wi-fi working in the office. Plugging an ethernet cable straight into the router works fine but it's not the ideal solution (and is posing an OH&S hazard as it is laying on the floor).
 
FYI I have run diagnostics several times & the one thing that stood out was this:
 
Diagnostics Information (Wireless Connectivity)Association status: Fail 0x00038002Association reason code: 0x00000002
Result of diagnosis: Problem foundIssue referred to: RNWF MSM Helper ClassRoot cause: Windows could not connect to "ERICSSON"You can try to connect again.
Result of diagnosis: Problem found

Acer :: Aspire 5520 Shutting Down. NOT Overheating

Mar 11, 2010

I'm in the repair field and I've got a customer's Aspire 5520 that was brought in for overheating. The machine had gone to Iraq, and the customer has indoor dogs..so yes, the fins on the heat pipe were very clogged. Got it all cleaned out, and the machine is still shutting itself off after between 10 minutes and 30 seconds of use.

Now, the machine isn't overheating. SpeedFan and a few other CPU temp utilities are showing the CPU to be around 45*c when the machine is randomly shutting down. 45c is not what I'd consider hot for a Turion x2.

It's not a RAM issue, I've replaced the CPU and am getting the same symptoms.

Acer :: Aspire 5520 - Accidentally Deleted My Whole OS

Sep 18, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop with 320gb hd space .. 8600m gs video card ... 4gb ram... Vista 32-bit oem.. etc.

The problem is that I've just accidentaly deleted my whole OS.
I booted with my Vista 64-bit disc so I could format one of my drives, but I stupidly formatted the wrong one. (the one with my OS)

So now I just installed Vista 64-bit on it, so I could at least do something with my laptop (watch dvds etc.), but I can't get the internet to work anymore because of all the important stuff that got deleted.

What I was using was some public WLAN.

Now it complains that a network adapter doesn't exist.. or something like that. I don't even know what that is.

Is there any way I can fix this myself? I just need to get my internet to work again.

Acer :: Aspire 5520- Wierd Videocard

Sep 15, 2007

Bougth a Acer Aspire 5520 couple of weeks ago, tried to install XP on it, thing crashed. Back on normal Vista (not from recovery) and installed the Nvidia driver(101.54 / 32 bit) which comes wit the acer website and the Nforce driver for network connction etc. Got a Gforce 8400M G with a AMD Turion64 X2(1.8 Ghz)

Now when i try gaming on this thing it's totally wack. Installed Counter-strike and World of warcraft, and both run not good... It's just lagging a lot, not internet lag, graphics lag. I tried downloading some other drivers, but no one seems to be working, mostly getting the message: 'u need a Vista 64 bit for this driver, and u have a Vista 64bit' or 'the hardware for this driver cannot be found'. No idea what to do to fix this problem according to drivers... could be really simple.

Acer :: Internet Connection- With 5520-5912

Jan 19, 2008

The laptop is a Acer 5520-5912 running Vista Home Edition.

I am trying to figure out some issues with my father's new laptop when connecting to the internet. There was a problem with finding wireless networks which was attributed to a problem with the wireless network card driver. I deleted the driver, figuring I would just connect to the wired network only to find that the laptop will not see my lan connection.

I tested the lan connection in my laptop and it worked great.

When I go into the network connections it shows 1 broadband connection that is disconnected through something called a WAN Miniport (PPPOE). I have no idea what this Miniport is, and when I try to connect, it does not connect.

The second connection shown is the Local Area Connection (LAN), and it says the network cable is unplugged.

Acer :: My Aspire 5520 Laptop Fan Is Extremely Loud

Nov 24, 2008

I've had my Acer Aspire 5520 for about 6 months now, and I did not get a warranty with it. Within the last month or so the fan has begun to get really loud. I have ways of quieting it down temporarily, hanging it off the table or propping it up, but even then the fan will burst into loud, annoying noises suddenly and for no apparent reason. It's kinda like a click-click-click noise, like when you put a strip of paper into a house fan (I know we all did this as a kid...) and the blades hit the paper as they go by, making really obnoxious noises...

So anyway, I'm just wondering if this is fixable, or if it isn't where I can find a replacement fan that works for my computer. I'm a software junky, and I don't really know enough about hardware, so when I went on Newegg and Frys websites I was unable to figure out what kind of fans would work for my laptop. If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it, as I spend a lot of time in the library at my school and I don't want to disturb everyone else in the whole building. In fact, when ever I shop for laptops, keyboards are one of the first things I look at- if the keyboard is too loud or awkward I will NOT buy that laptop.
