Acer :: 5920g Touchpad Stopped Working

Nov 17, 2008

about 2 months ago i bought an Acer 5920G, a week or so ago suddenly the touchpad stopped working, i dont recall how it happened, i think i just booted Windows Vista as i usually do and the touchpad didnt work when i tried to click my user name so i could enter my password to logon.

I thought maybe the driver had gone bad so i rebooted and booted Windows XP( on a different partition) and in windows xp the touchpad also didnt work anymore.

Is this a hardware failure? Or are there other possibilities? I tried removing the driver and reinstalling, but it still didnt work.

Acer :: Aspire E5-511 - All USB Ports Stopped Working?

Jan 26, 2015

I purchased an Aspire E5-511 about a week ago. At first, I had no problems with the USB ports and what I plugged in would be recognized and work, but now none of them will recognize anything that is plugged into them. This is for multiple devices that work on other computers, so it is not the devices, and obviously it's not the hardware if all 3 simultaneously stopped working. Googling the problem has led nowhere. Additionally, the webcam used to come up automatically in the "Camera" app; this no longer works either and it says "To get started, connect a camera." I have restored the system back to factory defaults, had all files deleted and re-did the entire initial process all over again, to no avail.

Acer :: Aspire V5-552P Touchscreen Stopped Working?

Jan 4, 2015

I have run into an issue with my Acer laptop which is leaving me really frusrated. For some reason one morning my touch screen stopped working. There has been no damage to my screen at all. 
 
I have concted Acer Technical Support which in usual fashion were of completely.... Before I got in touch with Acer Technical Support I tried:
 
Refreshing the HID Monitor drivers Removing/Reinstalling the HID Monitor driversBoth of these were unsucessful, according to Device Manager, the HID monitor is working just fine. Upon calling Acer Technical Support their suggestion was to reinstall Windows because the tech though that it was an software issue. 
 
I just reinstalled Windows are still have the same issue. Device Manager shows that the hardware is fine and functional from a driver standpoint. 
 
I've also tied ensuring that the cable behind the monitor is in tact as in this post: [URL] Thus far nothing has worked.

Acer Aspire E15 :: Wireless Suddenly Stopped Working

Jan 31, 2015

Acer Aspire E 15, Windows 8.1
 
Background (in as much detail as possible):
 
Earlier this week I wanted to use Pokerstars, but I was due an update (I already had it installed). I updated and loaded it up, although it seemed to lag at the log in screen, so I CTR+ALT+DEL and ended it in task manager. I reopened the program and had the same issue, so I task manager'd it again and it still didn't work. So I rebooted. When I rebooted, all of a sudden I had no option of connecting to a wireless network - only ethernet and VPN in the settings.
 
I have been into device manager and can see that I have a Qualcomm Atheros Driver in my network devices, although it has an amber warning with code 52 (driver unsigned).

I tried going onto Acer website and downloading the latest driver, which comes with a set up package - unfortunately this didn't work. I tried uninstalling the driver and pointing to the driver that I had downloaded manually; but every time it tells me 'You have the best driver set up for this device' and reverts back to the unsigned driver.
 
I have tried FN + F3 to disable and enable flight mode - no impact.
 
I read somewhere about updating bios settings - but there are none in the download section when I put my serial number into the Acer website.
 
I also tried downloading drivers from other external website and downloaded some third party program called 'Driver Assist' as the way the page was set up fooled me into thinking that was the legit download - it didn't work, and I have subsequently uninstalled it
 
I have only had the laptop just over a month new, and all had been working until then. Extremely unlikely to be any other spyware as the only things I have installed on here are Steam (FM15) and Pokerstars. I don't even really use this for browsing, just those two apps.

Further info - not sure if relevant but I installed the Acer WLAN + Bluetooth setup as a potential fix, and the bluetooth element seems to be functioning fine - not sure if they're on the same integrated card?

Acer Aspire V5-552PG :: Touchscreen Stopped Working After Win 8.1 Upgrade

Sep 8, 2014

My touchscreen on the laptop stopped working properly after I upgraded to Windows 8.1. I tried installing a few different drivers, and the touchscreen will work temporarily, until I put the computer to sleep and wake it up again. Also, I get an error message that a "USB Device fails" when the touchscreen stops working....not sure what that's about.
 
I've already tried drivers, installing/unistalling things...normal maintenance.

Acer Aspire One Zg8 0531h :: Error Message That USB Device Has Stopped Working

Sep 25, 2014

I've had my netbook for a few years and this error message has been appearing bottom right since I got it. Both USB ports have always worked fine. Device manager it shows a USB controller as not recognised by Windows. f I try to 'update' it says wndows doesn't recognise it. I can disable it but of course it renistalls on reboot and the message starts again.
 
I ignored it as it didn't do any harm. Recently I did a factory reset expecting this to do the trick but it didn't. I also updated the bios to v2034 I think but there's not much content to it so I've not got any USB options there.
 
I'm wondering if there are chipset drivers I need to get, though the Acer site doesn't offer anyting new there.

Acer Aspire 5750z :: WiFi Suddenly Stopped Working But Ethernet Is Fine

Oct 17, 2014

I have an acer aspire 5750z computer, a while back my wifi suddenly stopped working, but the ethernet is fine.  I've searched the internet and tried to install the required driver (Atheros), but when I try it says that the "drive might have been ejected please reinsert it now" or something along those lines. When I go to the driver manager the wifi driver isn't even listed under network adapters, oonly the ethernet drver was there.  I've heard that if your computer has had a virus or if you had dropped it the wifi card might have been damaged and I wanted to know if that's true, and if so can I buy a new wifi card?

Acer :: Aspire 5920G

Mar 6, 2009

I just acquired an Acer Aspire 5920G with NVidia GeForce 8600M GS.

I opened the back cover to see what it looks like and it looks like the graphics card is replaceable. Its an MXM-II card in 73 mm x 78 mm dimensions.

Im planning to replace the graphics card and I have couple questions.

Does the motherboard or the system support Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 MXM II or Nvidia Quadro FX3600 512 MB MXM II?

How do you upgrade the CPU? I unbolted all the bolts on the heat sink but the frame is in the way and I cant slide the heat sink assembly out as simple as I thought it would be. Does the mainboard support X9000 extreme CPU?

Is there a link to a manual where it shows how to break apart the laptop? I might change the screen, etc.

Is it worth putting the 5920G on steroids with X9000 cpu and Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 or Nvidia Quadro FX3600?

Acer :: Dead Aspire 5920g

Oct 31, 2008

So after packing up my comp at a friends house my comp is kinda dead, it was alive before I left my home and everything was fine then.

When i try to start it the cpu is flickering for a bit then freezes so i dont se any bios or anything.

The blue tooth and the lights to the right of the key board are lit to and I have no idea what to do.

Ive tried my old ram mem sticks, pulling out the battery and trying without it, trying a new hard drive, checking for loose cables inside the comp, checking for dust and screaming at it but nothing works.

I talked to some friends and they suggested something called flashing the bios but I have no idea how to do it and I dont know if it will work since i cant se the bios start up screen before it freezes.

I have called acer but they basicly told me to send it in but i dont know if i have any varenty left on it so I rather try to get it working on my own before sending it in if I still got varenty on it.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G- Overheating

Jun 23, 2009

I believe that my Acer Aspire 5920G was getting too hot, so I checked the temps:

CPU: 81C
GPU: 73C
HDD: 55C

I'm afraid those temperatures are too high. I don't understand why this happens! I don't play games that much now, I have cleaned the laptop's fans recently and I have the air-conditioner on all the day to keep the room with the laptop cool.

What can I do to decrease temps? I don't want to spend money, because I'm having problems with that laptop and my 8600M GS might die soon...

Acer :: Aspire 5920G VOIP

Oct 9, 2008

I don't think the issue is physical as under Audio Properties => recording I get response from the 'VU' meter there. However, I am simply not being heard across skype or BF2/OFP VOIP. It's not the levels, which are set to maximum, I've installed the latest realtek HD drivers, and skype is set to 'windows default device'

Windows sound recorder works, although not very well.

Acer :: Aspire 5920g With Windows 7

Dec 9, 2009

i installed windows 7 on my 5920g, however, i don't know what to do with empowering technology. Although launch manager is suggested by acer to be installed the other applications are not listed as compatible with windows 7..

I did download them though, and installed them, but at enet communication manager i got a message about known compatibility issues...So i wonder, if there is a compatible version, or if i can use a version of another laptop that originally came with win7 and if so ,which one..?

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Display

Apr 2, 2009

If I close or open the Display part of the screen and or all of the screen turn's black and or blue shortly, it flickers more or less. On some positions I don't get any flickering at all, but if I just slowly open it and adjust the viewing angle it tend to apear and disapear.

Also I can reproduce it if I slowly and very gently touch the top edges of the lid and slightly push on one side and pull on the other. Not much, just a bit. Also if I put a little pressure on the left bottom side of the screen it tend to get this flickering.

Black & Blue are not the only problem, sometimes the screen turns black all of the sudden and white stripes apear on the right side / partly left side and it looks like the display is burning in, it slowly gets white and the effect moves slowly to the middle of the display. Also an indicator for that problem is that part of the pixels on screen get blue and or flicker blue. Then bigger parts bet blue and so one.

The usual open / close / adjust viewing angle works to make this disapear for a while.

Also 3D extensive games and HD movies seem to cause this problem.

Acer :: 6920G Tuba Subwoofer Stopped Working

Jan 8, 2010

I've had this laptop since November as a replacement for my old 6920G which unfortunately got stolen, and the subwoofer/booster has been working fine with the latest Realtek driver on Windows 7.

However today I noticed that my music sounded a bit 'tinny', then discovered that the tuba booster thing wasn't working at all. I have no idea when it stopped working, although I suspect it my have physically broken in some way as I've done quite a bit of trvelling with my laptop over Christmas.

Is there any way I can properly identify the cause of the problem, and how would I go about getting it fixed? I'm not sure if I even have a warranty as I bought it second hand off ebay!
