Acer :: Travelmate C110 Screen Lockup, Crash

Sep 18, 2008

I recently was given a broken Acer C110 on the condition that I could keep it if I could fix it.

The issue is this:
After X time (anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes) of use, the screen will suddenly lock up and display the last rendered frame, but artifacted with a series of pinkish and green rectangles arranged in a few columns on the screen. Very odd. Immediately before this happens, the (a) fan will spin up for a half a second or so.

I had replaced the memory, in case it was a bad RAM sector. No change. I figured I would do some research before spending more on new parts, but couldn't find any info on this particular problem anywhere online.

Acer :: Travelmate 5602 Screen

Jan 31, 2010

I uninstalled 2 programs and deleted shared files after the uninstall.

On reeboot of the computer my screen was pixellated and it was hard to read text.

I have tried the following to get the screen back to normal.

System restore
reload uninstalled programs

Installed video drivers

Contacted Acer who told me to put system back to factory defaults, which I did

Nothing has worked so far

I have set my screen size to 1024 * 768 which allows me to read text but the screen still doesn't look right.

I have plugged in an external monitor which there is no problem with.

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.

Dell :: BIG M4400: Full System Lockup

Oct 20, 2008

I know a few people are experiencing this, not sure if it's the same with the E series, but the entire M4400 will fully lock up and die, requiring a hardboot. As in, a super-freeze: lights, keyboard, mouse, applications, display, everything. No chance to remove the freeze besides doing a hardboot. I've left it on for hours after the freeze, and still no luck.

This is a ridiculous problem. Imagine typing pages of documents, presentations, creating image files, working on CAD files and then it freezes completely. No ctrl+alt+del to save you here, no "quick-save".

Why is this happening? I've had 3-4 lockups every 10 minutes at a time. Using Dell memory, and default Dell hardware.

Weird situation: It has -never- locked up while watching episodes of fresh prince of bel-air on freshprincetv.com, and has -never- locked up while playing half-life 2 for four hours straight...this is worse than a defective GPU. More like a defective motherboard here...

HP Lockups :: Pavilion Dv7 - Random Freeze / Lockup

Jul 15, 2012

My computer is randomly freezing. What happens is I'm doing something I normally do like check Facebook or some other normal website and it just randomly freezes. I have no clue to what is causing this, and it never blue screens. What happens is:

All open windows are "minimized" (on the dock they show as open)My desktop goes black and has no items on itThe mouse goes to the center of the screenThe mouse and keyboard freeze upand above the battery icon there's random letters that always read "sRpIg"Here's a picture of it. My outer camera doesn't work on my phone so it looks weird.

Acer :: Aspire 4810T Crash

Oct 31, 2009

I bought one of these because of its rep, its long battery life and its weight. But there's a huge problem. Whenever I have four or five Internet windows open OR I have on internet window open and try to open a word doc, the computer freezes - really freezes, not even control alt delete works. When it restarts it does so from the safety mode. I've brought it to Staples, I've contacted Acer and Microsoft. They each sound surprised and Acer blames Vista and Vista blames Acer and Staples says I'm out of luck.

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 G2 Hard Lockup/freezing During Gaming

May 10, 2010

Having an issue with my Envy. As soon as I got the machine I installed a SSD and clean copy of Win7. Drivers were downloaded from the thread in this forum section. The computer seems completely fine, temps are well within normal range (68c load CPU 74c load GPU). Besides the crashes, I have not experienced any other sort of instability with this machine.

The issue is an annoying hard lockup-my games will completely lock up and go into an infinite sound loop. The only remedy is a hard reset-I can not access the task manager or any other Windows functions. This happens at seemingly random, whether it be 5 minutes into a match or 2 hours in. The crash is not being triggered by heat-my system stays very cool, even during gaming.

The crashes seem to happen in any 3D game (but not furmark, for some reason)-at first I thought it was an issue with Bad Company 2, but after having time to muck around, I've realized that it is happening in all my games (including Just Cause 2, Team Fortress 2, GTAIV, Trackmania, Battlefield 2, etc).

I can't think of any reason why this is happening-I have a relatively clean Windows installation (need to save space on SSD) and up to date drivers. The only program I run in the background is NOD32, which has not given me any issues in the past with my other machines (I have tried disabling NOD32, to no avail).

My best guess is that it is video driver related. I have tried the Catalyst 10.4 driver from HPs website, as well as the 10.x ALL 8.74 beta driver-the 8.74 driver unlocks more resolution options and fixes BC2 load times, but both drivers are susceptible to the crash.

Dell Latitude D630 :: Lockup Possible Memory Allocation?

Mar 19, 2013

I am running a Dell D630 with Windows XP, 2 gig memory.Recently, I began having an issue where the screen would lock. Unable to move the cursor,, type or anything. This would occur with various pgms, Word, excel, even with just the desktop.Cycling power would allow me to resume for some time, then it would occur again. It doesn’t seem to be load related as it can occur with little going on.I ran checkit and it showed a memory allocation failure. I have read that this may be a false failure with checkit. I’m not sure.

I replaced the RAM (2gig) and the problem still occurs.I have windows allocating virtual memory..I then tried to do a restore, thinking some update got loaded and is causing the problem, but restore fails when I run it.I am thinking possibly a bad sector on the HD, but have not found anything to check this out.

Acer :: Aspire 5050 Loosing HDD And DVD Drive In XP & Crash

Jan 15, 2009

My 5050 crashes XP every few minutes, maybe half hour sometimes with an 0x07 blue screen.

I have temporarily taken to booting ubuntu (llinux OS) off a USB pen drive and it works fine, however, i might well see the HDD and DVD drive in Ubuntu but its not long before they dissapear from the visibilty of the OS. Of course this would be a crash in XP but not under these circumstances.

I can hear that the hdd is running and the cd drive will open so its not a power issue or temps.

I think the mobo ide controller is falling over or connections associated with it.

I cannot identify the ide controller (if it is a seperate component to the mobo itself) or investigate problem further without some knowledge & ideas from experianced members here.

Even trying to take this notebook apart seemed difficult & I gave up after a few screws were out. Anyone got a strip down guide/service manual and more importantly some ideas on my fault.

At first I was thinking of maybe a dry joint on the HDD connection but that was before I ran Linux OS and discovered I was actually losing visibility of both IDE hardwares. Not just the HDD, and not losing power either.

Acer Aspire V Touch :: Apps Always Crash And Can Never Be Opened

Nov 28, 2014

I just got my Aspire V touch, so I don't understand why the Acer applications keep crashing when I try to open them. All of my other apps open fine without crashing. (Acer apps i.e.: Acer Recovery, Acer Quick Access, etc.) Why only Acer apps are crashing? I'm trying to make my recovery files.
 
Also, what is AOP Framework? It always crashes when my laptop is waken up from it's sleep. Can I uninstall it?

Acer Aspire 772G-9829 :: Overheating And Hard Crash

Feb 18, 2015

I purchased my Acer Aspire 7726-9829 in August 2013 and haven't had any problems at all until a week and a half ago.  When running games, it appears my computer is heating up and experiencing a hard crash. (This only happens when running games.  Browsing the web or watching movies doesn't cause the problem.)
 
At first I thought it might be the power settings, so I picked up a new power supply and set my computer to 'high performance'. (Which fixed minor clipping issues.  The graphics now run perfectly for about five to ten minutes before the computer crashes.)

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?

Every time I restart, the network card is disabled by default.
On very few occasions, the network card disables itself when surfing the internet.

I tried:
Disabling other network cards
Going to Device Manager, NIC, Untick "Allow the computer to turn off..."
Scan for malware/viruses using AVG 8.0

Conclusion:
Still it doesn't work!
