Acer :: Travelmate 2450, Reset The Bios?

Oct 10, 2009

I bought a 2450 and the keyboard, touchpad and usb ports are all not working. I did some reading and someone had said that a reset could fix this problem, he said it was a problem with Acers bios. I'm trying to find where to jumper it, i read that you jumper J3 that is around the memory. I did that and don't think it reset, i figured the bios would give me a time warning or some sort of setting's warning. I thought i should see if anyone knows the procedure. Otherwise im thinking about cutting the lead to the top terminal and soldering in a jumper (which i don't want to do).

Sep 21, 2007

Due to some mulfunctioning of my TravelMate it cannot recognize the BIOS administrator passord anymore.

just working on the CMOS battery doesnt work for that password (only resets the BIOS user password).

is there any jumper or contact on the motherboard to reset?

Can I flash a BIOS and get rid of it?

Where can I find a copy of the BIOS? it seems that ACER Bios utility works under windows and requires to input the BIOS password for resetting.

Acer :: BIOS Replacement Or Reset For Travelmate 2300

Jun 16, 2008

if it's possible to buy and install a replacement BIOS for an Acer Travelmate 2300 (as my 2300 died half-way through a flashing process-it will power on but there is nothing on the screen) or is the BIOS chip soldered to the motherboard and not possible (I've no technical skill at soldering).

Or is there a way to reset the BIOS? I could find nothing on the Acer website specific for this model.

Acer :: 5520G And Fan Speeding Up

Aug 3, 2008

I noticed that my Acer's graphics during games substantially slows down when notebook increases fan speed, and after few secs continues fluently.

The problem is very obvious in games likes HOMM 5.

The processor is 2.0 Turion with 8600M GS graphics.

I'm using Forceware 101.45 which came with the machine. Another thing I noticed, in
control panel I can't change system fan speed, it's greyed out.

Should I install newer drivers?

Jan 15, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5520G. I found a great deal on a brand new 9600M GT card. Both are MXM2. Question is: can I upgrade ?

I`m saying this because I have 2 VGA outs ( DVI + DSUB ), and I wonder if they both will work if I upgrade. Plus I want to be sure they are compatible.

Acer :: 5520G Keeps Rebooting .. Is It Dead

Jul 17, 2009

My friend has mess up his Acer Aspire 5520G. And I'm supposed to help him fix it. His laptop has a nVidia 8400 graphics card.

When the laptop is powered it keeps rebooting itselve evry 3-4 seconds, and nothing is displayed on the screen. I don't know what's wrong with my friend's laptop but I think it might be related to the BIOS been correpted in his laptop. He tried to flash the BIOS from VISTA.

Anyways, I got Crisis recovery disk, and the latest BIOS for his laptop, and I got also a USB floppy drive. I removed the harddrive and the optical drive to force the laptop to boot from the USB floppy drive. I removed the battery too.

I pushed Fn+Esc, plugged the charger in the laptop and powered the laptop. The laptop know doesn't reboot itself but doesn't detect the floppy drive either.

I used the floppy to make a boot CD and tried to flash the bios again using the DVD drive this time. Pushed Fn+Esc again. The laptop turns ON and try to read the CD for about 5 seconds and then nothing else happens.

1- Is it a BAD BIOS.

2- How to make a boot CD to use with Crisis Recovery.

Acer :: Aspire 5520g Heat

May 17, 2010

I have recently purchased a 2nd hand 5520g laptop.

Yesterday I was running games on it. The mouse/sound would freeze intermittently and it was very hot. So I bought a cooling pad, downloaded CPUID Hardware Monitor to check the temps and took it apart to check for dust in the fan/vents (there wasn't any). Today I tried running games again with the monitor going. There are no longer intermittent freezes but it consistently reaches 89C CPU and 90C GPU(at which point the laptop fan kicks in and cools it back down to 78ish then the fan slows down and the temp goes back up etc etc etc). The HD stays at 43C the whole time. The temperature seems fine when not gaming. As I type, the CPU is idling at 56, the GPU at 61, HD 40C, where they've been for the last hour.

So my questions:

1. Are 89/90C acceptable temps for the CPU/GPU when gaming on a laptop or will it do damage?
2. Is it possible that rethermal pasting the CPU/GPU and under volting the cpu (as suggested in other posts on this forum) would help?
3. Is there any way to make the fan speed turn to full at an earlier temperature? (once the fan went faster, the cpu/gpu temps decreased dramatically).

I took the Battery out in case that was helping the heat.

specs:
cpu - AMD Turion 1.9Ghz dual core
gpu - GeForce 8400m G
RAM - 3Gig
HD - 160GB

Acer TravelMate P453-M :: Changed BIOS Boot Settings - Black Screen

Jan 19, 2015

Laptop still under warranty. I recently had a motherboard and HDD replacement. I wanted to install Windows myself, but the BIOS was set to UEFI, and I couldn't seem to boot off of a USB drive. So I switched it to Legacy, booted from the pendrive, and installed Windows just fine.
 
For whatever reason, I went back to try and change the setting to UEFI. Now the laptop switches on, but refuses to boot. I get a black screen, with no logo or any prompt whatsoever to access the BIOS. 

I read a bit and seems I need to remove the BIOS battery, let the memory clear itself to reset BIOS settings to default, and try again? If it matters, I re-installed Windows 7 64-bit.

I successfully upgrade an old laptop so that it will run well and not be too costly to upgrade either? So slow at present....

Laptop is:
acer travelmate 4502WLMi running xpsp3

Was thinking that probably the only upgrades worth considering were ram and hdd.

If this is the case what size mem and spec will work?

If the hdd is worth upgrading do I go for internal or external? and what size ?

Acer :: TravelMate 530

Sep 24, 2008

I have just been given a TravelMate 530 2.2 cpu Lappy

Fine for all I need but I would love to upgrade the memory. I see it says it can only go up to 1 gig and that it has 256 as standard.

I see there is a slot under a cover on the back, but only 1 slot (Unless I'm not looking properly)

Can I just stick a 1 gig unit in this slot and all will be fine or is there some unusual method to upgrading the memory. Hope it's nothing like the old Dells

Acer :: TravelMate 2300 FAT Only

Mar 8, 2009

I was given an Acer TravelMate 2300 by someone who has a new one. It came with no guarantees and no recovery CD. It had working verison of XP Pro on it through SP2. I applied SP3 and several updates. It worked good until... I noticed that the C drive was formatted FAT32. So I thought it a good idea to move it to NTFS. Without checking, I fired in "convert c: /fs:ntfs". It rebooted and after a brief look at the Windows XP splash, it goes straight to a stop code x0000024 BSOD. There was nothing on the drive except for the OS so I was felt OK withjust reinstalling from my media.

I dragged out my copy of XP pro slipstreamed with SP2. Booted from CD, went through XP's native setup and detected an "unknown" partition where C used to be. I must've really slammed it. I chose to install to the unknown partition and XP offered to format it NTFS. I chose the thorough format option but it goes only to 24% and stops. The display still shows the progress bar, blue background etc. at 24%.

Since I don't have much experience with laptops, let me ask, is it possible that this laptop/drive ONLY formats to FAT or FAT32 and won't take an NTFS volume? If it will, are there any ideas out there how to apply and NTFS format so I can get this cute little laptop back to a usable state?

Scan for malware/viruses using AVG 8.0

Conclusion:
Still it doesn't work!

Acer :: TravelMate 2420 Overheating

Jun 23, 2009

I bought a used Acer TravelMate 2420 laptop (WinXP, RAM 1 GM, hard disk 40 GB, Intel Celeron M processor 1,50 GHZ) and since the beginning it had overheating problems and also some issues with power management. And yes, I know it was a stupid thing to buy it, but knowing it doesn't help.

Now the problems:
1. Whatever I do, it keeps overheating, even if no programs are opened. The laptop's fan works very vaguely, and I can hardly hear any sound of it. At first it didn't trouble me much, as it was winter and it would still work, although heated up. I also bought an USB ventilation pad (2 fans), and it helped for some time. But now, when the air temperature is over 30 degrees (in the room), the laptop just "freezes" in the middle of work and stays like this for about 20 min, or just suddenly shuts down completely.

2. I can't turn it off if the power supply is on - I have to unplug it just before the computer shuts down, otherwise it keeps on restarting. Also I can't use it without a battery, as it doesn't turn off in any way (even pressing the power button for a long time doesn't help), and I have to unplug power supply (which ain't no good for computer).

What I already tried to do:
1. Re-installed Windows, installed updates.

2. Checked the computer with various antivirus and antimalware programs (Avira, AVG-free, Malwarebytes' Anti-malware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware).

3. Installed additional Acer utilities: Acer emPowering Framework, Acer ePerformance Management, Acer ePower Management - but they basically didn't let me change anything important (like the fan speed, for example). With PowerManager I changed the CPU speed to Medium, well, it helped a little bit, but the comp. is totally slow now (and still overheats) ... if I set the speed to High, it just turns off after about 10 minutes.

4. Instaled SpeedFan to speed up the fan - but it didn't detect any fan in the computer!

5. Dismantled the laptop (removed the hard disk, the keyboard) to see if the fan isn't clogged, but I still couldn't reach it. So I just used a vacuum-cleaner as much as I could reach, but of course it didn't change anything.

6. Oh and of course I disabled all the unnecessary programmes (by modifying msconfig -> startup).

7. Ran HDD diagnostics, S.M.A.R.T. report showed no problems.

I've read quite a lot now about these laptops, and seems like they all have this overheating problem, but it's usually solved by using a ventilating pad (which helped in my case a bit, but basically didn't solve the problem). I didn't found anybody having these power problems, so I guess maybe a previous user made some stupid modifications... I just don't know how to fix them now.
