Acer :: Aspire 5920G Blue Screen ATI Drivers

Jun 8, 2009

iv had this problem for a few weeks now and nothing seems to be working. Everytime I play a game I get a bluescreen about display drivers and windows Problem Reports and Solutions says its a problem with ATI Graphics Drivers aswell.

I have tried various different ATI drivers and the driverhearn mod application but all them having failed I even run Acer eReovery and restored back to factory setting and STILL have the same problem but with a new error message, popping up occasionally while just genrally using the laptop, saying that the drivers stopped responding but managed to recover... something along those lines.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 And The AMD RM-70 CPU

May 26, 2009

I wanted to upgrade my processor on my Aspire 5100 from the so so tl-50 to the RM-70. I am wondering if anyone else has tried this and if so, did you have any problems installing. from what I have researched, AMD is using the same bios for the the Turion processors and the RM-70 seems to be the one that uses the same wattage range, socket and power consumption.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 CPU Spikes

Jun 10, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 AMD 62x dualcore tk-53 i think its at like 1.7ghz, it came with Vista, I put XP back on it, came with 1gb of ram I upgraded to 4gb hoping it would run fine. To get to the point. When I first got the computer it ran great, however now sometime with it has brought it to this annoying spike in my CPU. I've tried everything I could to keep it down, but it spikes over 100% randomly and at the worst times. I've ran Process Explorer and watched when it spiked, nothing unusual. I've watched my task manager, nothing unusual. I've defraged, ran virus scans, disabled my virus protection, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, reformated, restarted, any and everything I could. I bought a stand for the laptop and a fan so it doesnt overheat. I've check my power settings, my page file remains the same around 555 on average even during the spikes.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Overheating Then Shutting Down

Dec 29, 2008

I think that it is an overheating problem considering my laptop (ONLY recently) seems to be getting very hot, to the point it needs to shut down. But this is the strange thing:

I had Windows Vista installed on this laptop (Acer Aspire 5100) earlier, and my battery almost never heated up to the point it needed to shut down, or even heat up to an extreme level.... But now that I have downgraded to Windows XP SP2, it seems to shut down MUCH more often. But I did find one thing of concern. Around the same time my laptop started shutting down, I installed an application called 'Game Speed Changer' and that whenever I had used it, it slowed my computer down immensely, and then when I went to close it, the BSOD would appear. Every time.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Graphics Card RAM

May 13, 2009

I purchased an Acer Aspire 5100 using it mostly for busines and writing. Now, I'd like to watch some videos, have an webcam, and play games, however, the integrated video card handles none of this well. It's slow and will sputter on something as simple as a short 60 second video clip.

I maxed out the 4GB Ram, thinking that Vista was using too much but it did not help.

Then I discovered this:

Quote:

For gaming, the graphics speed is enhanced care of the ATI Radeon Xpress 1100graphics card, with 128 MB dedicated memory. The card can tap into an additional 384 MB from shared system memory, for a total of 512 MB.

I did some research and found that I could go into the BIOS and change the memory from 128 to 512. I tried it, found the setting, changed it, and thought I'd find success. However, Vista somehow read these actions as an error and a failure to start, and would not start........................

Acer :: ERecovery On Aspire 5100 Laptop

Jan 2, 2009

Im trying to do a factory restore using the Acer eRecovery on Aspire 5100 laptop, which I set up using their wizard, input the password, ran from Vista, it has rebooted and is showing the Windows XP logo and the moving "progress" bar thing. However, after about 3 mins, the bar stops moving and nothing else happens, its been like that for ages now. Resetting the power starts it up and gets to the same point and stops again. I have used it before without problems, the hidden partition was there before I started (I checked). Now I cant do anything with the laptop at all! Can anyone suggest what I can do now? I didn't ever get round to making DVD backup disks. The machine is also 2 years old, and I dont want to spend a fortune on Acer's 50p per min customer service, considering they should've given me a boot disk with the machine in the first place. I only wanted to restore it as for no apparent reason all my USB devices stopped being recognized by vista.

Acer :: Reducing Heat On ASpire 5100

Jan 30, 2009

I have been having some trouble with speed on this computer and I'm quite sure its not a connection problem and its a temperature problem. Lately I have been hearing some strange noises coming out of it and I do feel a lot of heat on it's underside. Unfortunately it only has one vent on the side and the rest are at the bottom. I will admit it is not the the best well kept laptop ever, for once it's never seen a compressed air can seen I took it out it's box. I did find this tutorial online for reducing the heat but I decided to post it here first to see what you guys thought about it boefore I went on with it.

I gotta say I never opened up a laptop before but that doesn't mean I'm computer illiterate or am shy about doing it. I do realize its a tutorial for a fujitsu and not an Acer. Well the bottom line is, what can I do to reduse the temperature? Can I attempt this [url]? and if so, are there any differences I shoould be aware about?

Acer :: Aspire 5100 - Battery/charging

Oct 8, 2008

my Aspire 5100 laptop has ben fully-charged but the ePower icon in the system tray says it's as low as 1% charged, and for the past several months has altogether stopped giving me the warning baloon regarding the impending need to charge or else it'll go into hibernation.

i've had this laptop for one year now.

just tonight, though, i've realized something else too-- the orange 'battery' light on the front of the laptop is blinking steadily instead of a solid green (fully charged) or solid orange (charging). then i scrutinize the ePower battery icon in the system tray and it says the laptop has 15 of battery power left, and in paretheses "plugged in, not charging". yet i can be on the laptop for hours upon hours in this state, and it never shuts down.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Cannot Install Windows XP

Mar 12, 2009

my gf has aspire 5100 with vista in it, and it sucks so I decided to install xp to it. I reseached from google that does it support xp and does it work and found out that it does, you just need to make custom xp-install disc to get the HDD drivers so that xp-installation finds the HDD.

When I install xp, I get past the filecopying-part fine, then it reboots as usual and tries to start windows, but in the loading screen with xp-logo it gives me bluescreen.

0x0000007B is the error.

I've tried many installing over and over again, but with no luck. Its possible that my xp-cd is damaged in some way, but I just dont think so.

Any solution? Seems like everyone else has had no problems with installing xp to aspire 5100 vista.

I believe that istalling vista back works, but its not the right solution, since its piece of **** and slow as ****.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Running Extremely Slow

Nov 2, 2008

I'm guessing I did this to myself somehow but I can't figure out how to fix it. It originally came with Visa but I downgraded to XP and had been using it without problems for awhile. It started getting a little slow so I recently installed (and soon after uninstalled) a bunch of optimizing / driver updating programs. After playing around with those, my laptop is running super slow... I can't watch videos, the buffer causes it to just show the image while the audio plays... After running Dr. Hardware it looks like my CPU is only running at 800mhz which is a lot slower than it used to.

Acer :: The Aspire 5100 Is Dead. No Power, No Charging

Feb 23, 2009

It started with a faulty power cord with bad connection that resulted in interrupted power supply (after the slightest movement of the power cord computer showed the battery icon and the screen backlight dimmed - as if there was no power).

I managed to deal with that just fine until the computer started a bad habbit of draining the battery and running out of juice when left ON overnight with the power cord connected. SOmehow it lost the power connection even when I didn't even touch it.

I still didn't pay much attention to that until about a week ago it refused to turn on at all. It does not charge the battery, insted it makes a strange ticking noise, sometimes the charging light flashes sometimes it's constantly on, indicating that it's charging when it really isn't. Whith battery removed, it still won't turn on. It turns on for a split second and then it's off again, followed by that strange ticking sound.

A opened it up, removed all the removable components from it (HDD, DVD drive, RAM, CPU FAN, battery) and still the same wierd behavior. The ticking sound comes from somwhere under the power button, I can't precisely locate it but it's pretty loud.

As a computer it still works. I know that because when there was still a little reserve left in the battery it booted up until the Windows dektop before it ran out of juice. I think with a fully charged battery it would work 100% fine. But the problem is that laptop itself isn't charging the battery anymore and the AC is not provided directly to the system either. So I can't use it anyway.

Some sort of power supply subsystem must be dead but I am afraid that it's integrated in the motherboard. And if that's the case, it would cost a fortune to replace.

Do I have chances of cheap repair that does not involve replacement of motherboard?

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Won't Load And Doesn't Boot From A CD

Jan 31, 2009

My Acer laptop died on me sometime last year, I tried to fix it, had somebody who is more techie than me look at it and we couldn't fix it. He managed to get all the data off but couldn't get it to boot up.

My brother recently had a similar problem with his desktop computer so he told me to put an XP disc in and change the BIOS so it booted from the CD ROM.

I have done this and it wont boot. It doesn't seem to recognise there is a disc in there.

When it loads, the Windows XP screen comes on, then a blue screen flashes up, can't read what it says as it doesn't stay on long enough, then the Acer screen comes up then the screen asking if you want to start up in safe mode etc comes up, if I select start as normal or from last know good configuration, it just keeps looping but if I select safe mode, a huge list of drivers comes up then it turns itself off.

I have tried to do the built in recovery but it doesn't work, just stays on please wait for hours.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 ... Lots Of Beeps On Startup And NTLDR Missing

Dec 21, 2008

My fatherís notebook has been acting up for awhile. It beeps continuously at startup.

You would have to "F2" to the BIOS then exit the BIOS, then start up screen to come up again, beeps again repeat "F2" back to BIOS, but eventually XP would load. Unfortunately everything was sluggish, keyboard wouldnít work right. So in my limited computer knowledge I decided to reformat the notebook. I could not find any back up disk that came with the notebook so I created a back up disk from factory settings via the Acer eRecovery Management process. I have ran this recovery disk twice. Both times I have installed the recovery disk I get NTLDR missing as well as the beeps have not gone away. From some online research beeps mean computer is telling us something is wrong with the hardware. Number of beeps tells what specifically; unfortunately I canít find what continuous beeping means. NTLDR missing I found usually means that the computer is looking in the wrong place for the file.

I have no idea what I should do next to resolve the problem. Should I go out and buy an OME copy of XP Pro. Will friends XP Pro disks work as long as I use the XP Key found on the bottom of my laptop? How can i figure what hardware is causing the notebook to beep?

Ideally what I would like to achieve is a clean install with the most limited amount of Acer bloat ware installed. I am trying to find a list of what programs are needed and what programs are bloatware.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 - What The Average Idle/ Light Usage Temperatures Are

Jan 20, 2010

i have an older laptop (Acer Aspire 5100), Still works like new, but I was wondering what the average idle/ light usage temperatures are? Right now I'm getting a pretty solid temp reading at 45C, which I think it pretty good for a laptop. Anyone else have same/similar model (AMD D-C x64 TK-53 1.70 Ghz) that could give me there temps. Secondly I recently replaced the LCD and inverter. The inverter was for the orginal LCD but i got a matte screen instead of the glossy. I'm not sure whether it's always been like this since the original inverter, but i notice it get pretty warm over the plastic. I'm know there's quite a bit of voltage going through there, but it is it normal to get warm? (not burning temp, but noticeable hot/warm to the touch
