Acer :: Aspire 7520 With Continuous Boot Cycle


I booted up my acer aspire 7520 and checked my email then left the room.When i returned the laptop was switched off so i tried to reboot it.Unfortunately it will not boot up anymore,it begins to boot but then switches off and then tries to reboot again.I can no longer access the bios as the boot cycling prevents it.I thought it may have been a hard drive problem so i replaced it with a new one but this has the same effect.The RAM cards have been removed and tried in different slots and this hasn't helped.The only way to stop the laptop from cycling through is to remove the battery.This fault occurs both when trying on battery power and on mains supply.The battery is getting charged ok.Has anyone on this forum ran into this problem before? I have searched on the net for clues on how to fix this but have ran up against a brick wall.There are lots of people who have had this problem but i haven't found a fix yet.The laptop is running Vista home premium.

Acer :: Aspire 7520
I've recently bought the 7520, and at the moment everything is working hunky dory. In fact, it is quite a good machine.

I've made myself both a full bootable recovery disk, and a disk with all the drivers and applications. The only bugbear for me is the customizability that I want to do. I have never owned a laptop before, preferring my desktop pc which I have upgraded to a wonderful, powerful beast.

I bought the laptop so I could be elsewhere in my home and be connected to the net via TP-Link. Even this works great and at full speed. So, currently no problem.

Obviously the OS is Vista 32 bit, which I want to downgrade to XP. On the Acer website there are no XP drivers for the inner components of the 7520, and I am assuming that all the Acer bumpf like 'enet' and 'empowerment', etc, are part and parcel of the drivers...or are they simply Acer software which you can delete without any degredation to the operability of the system?

The truth is, I want my laptop to be a mirror microcosm of my desktop pc. Is it possible for me to downgrade to XP, but beforehand, to find and backup the proper XP drivers for the inner components of my laptop before I attempt to do so?

Acer :: Upgrading CPU In Aspire 7520
I have the Acer Aspire 7520 Laptop with the AMD Turion X2 TK-55 1.8Ghz Socket One.

Using PC Wizard it says I have a Acer Fuquene motherboard and nVidia nForce 560 Chipset. My question is, will this accept any of the AMD Socket One Processors? I was looking at maybe getting a TL-68 2.4Ghz..

I originally bought this computer for my wife so I wasnt too picky on the specs, but now Im finding it more useful than my high powered desktop since I can take it anywhere around the house I want. Only problem is that the laptop just needs a little more grunt for some of the encoding and stuff I do occasionally..

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Gaming
I think it has something to do with my CPU getting really fast 100%

I bought a Acer Aspire 7520 for using it on college. It came with Vista Home Premium and I was planning to put XP asap on it. But because everything went pretty smoothly I did not saw a reason to do it inmediatly. So I could play games like Half-life 2, Counter-strike source, and Team Fortress 2 perfectly fine. But after some time I got annoyed like hell by Vista, and by downloading a crack I accidently installed a virus so everything got even worse. So I thought, okay lets install XP inmediatly! After I formatted my hard-drive I installed it with Service pack 2, and it all went great.

Well that's what I thought at the first few seconds. Because after having installed all the drivers I started Team Fortress 2. And suddenly around every 10-20 seconds my ping went from a 30 to 90 or higher. And that ofcourse caused my fps to drop, so this made it impossible to play Team Fortress 2. And after trying allot different drivers I decided to go back to Vista, because the games I wanted to play ran great on it. So now I have Vista Home Premium installed with Service Pack 1 and the drivers from acer that are made to be used with Vista + SP1. But now I got the same ****ing problem, I had in XP. For some unknown reason my ping decides to raise randomly. And makes it again not possible to play a game online because my fps then drops from a nice 72 fps to 9 or lower.

I installed every driver that Acer released for my laptop that are compatible with Vista (32bit) + Service pack 1.

I just have no idea what causes this! I have a antivirus + firewall. And a special anti-spyware/malware/other crap that makes your laptop/pc slow...............

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Bad Performance
My Aspire 7520 laptop is running good , and all goes well.. But when I want to play a game (lets say WoW) , the game has a strange , stuttering lag... Like when you have to many applications on. Its almost if my computer can't handle it.

My Laptop has these specifications , and i wonder if it has anything to do with this.

Windows Vista Home Premium
AMD 64 Athlon x 2 (Dual-core processor)
NVIDIA GeForce 7000M videocard
120GB hard drive disk space
2024MB RAM DDR

I just bought it brand new, I've had it for about 2 weeks now. And I was wondering how i could make the games go faster... Ive looked about everywhere and no solutions so far.

What i have tried:
-Letting the game run on only 1 core-FAILED
-Trying to set up XP on my computer-FAILED miserably to the point where i was afraid i screwed up my computer fully. Lucky someone helped me, as i couldn't run the backup for some reason... he let me autoboot vista without autobooting XP... next time ill need more info before i F up my computer

(Also , would it help in game performance when i downgrade to XP?)

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Will Not Start Or Then Will Not Shut Off
My Acer Aspire 7520 Gemstone Vista,

Will not start but I can hear the fan start then stop after a couple of secs, also the power and hdd leds flash on for 4 secs and then off for 4 secs and keep looping.

But then if I press the on/off button to turn the machine off it will not turn off, even holding the button for 4 secs or more. The only way to turn it off is by disconnecting the battery.

Nothing is connected and nothing appears on the screen.

Acer :: Aspire 7520-5460 Graphics
I bought my laptop last year around christmas time. Surprisingly the nvidia 7000m performed very well. I was able to run Gothic 3 on low specs, and also fallout 3 which ran well on medium specs. But about 3-5 months ago the performance deteriorated a lot. it got so bad that i cant even watch movies on it anymore. All the framerates, on games it ran fairly well before, are unplayable now. I just hope i didnt fry the gpu because it did overheat before, but i just thought it was normal. Ofcourse if i new about this forum before none of that might have happened. There many useful posts here...

Acer :: Crashed WinVista On Aspire 7520
crashed 7520. Vista bsod's on startup and continuously reboots. In the 'Startup Repair' utility, The 'System Recovery Options' box lists no windows Vista installations to repair, even after loading the proper storage drivers... When I browse for Drivers, I can access D:, E: (CD), and X: (??), but not C:. When I try to access C:, I am told I have to format it before I can use it... Looks like C: (and Vista) is toast. Luckily, There are no 'Lost Pictures, etc, issues on this one, just looking for a return to functionality.

What do I need to do to get this machine bootable?

Is there any way to recover from here?

From what I have read so far, It seems I'll need a WinVista disk, but what Version?? (I can read the Product Key, but not the version info on the MS sticker).

I've also seen lots of "driver recovery" CDs and downloads out there, but Do I need them? Will they help me recover the existing Vista install?, or are they just drivers that I can dl from Acer?

What is X:? a third partition?

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Wont Turn On
Update:
Just wrapped the notebook inside a blanket and overheated it, then let it cool down.
Now it works.
All i have to do now is to remove the Nvidia gpu stuff left behind and it should be ready for use again.

Edit:
My problem is exacly the same as the one described in this thread:
Aspire 7520 - will not start or then will not shut off
But i could not find any fix.

My stepdads Acer Aspire 7520G wont turn on anymore.
The wierd thing is that it was working yesterday.
Now it just keep rebooting like seen in this YouTube clip.
[url]

Its out of warranty so i was hoping i could try fixing it myself.
With the help of the community here of course.

I been randomly searching Google for help and what i have found out is that this is a common problem, but i have yet to find any fixes other than the suggestion to remove the motherboard and reheat it inside an oven..................

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Tuning Wi-fi Router
This is my internet system: I got a VPN type of connection, i got LAN first, then a direct VPN. The provider hooked me up with those LAN settings (IP, mask, gateaway), so i HAVE to set em the local network settings before i connect, otherwise, my MAC adress gets blocked. After I have bought the laptop, I felt like makin' some Wi-Fi around; so I got MSI RG54GS2 now.

I don't know how to make all this work now, lol. I called my ISP company boss and asked him to disable the router's MAC adress' blocking, so I can free tuning my new router now.

Just gimme some advice which type of connection I should pick, where I should put my previous LAN settings n stuff like that.

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Slow Graphics Processing
I have an Acer Aspire 7520 that is 2 years old, the system specs are:

- AMD Athlon 1.8GHz Dual Core.
- 17" WXGA+ CrystalBrite LCD.
- 4 GB DDR2.
- 500 GB HDD.
- NVIDIA GeForce 7000M.

It worked fine for a year but starting the second year, the sound card started to fail, and by that I mean that the sound sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't, but I solved this problem by buying an external sound card.

Two months ago I accidentally hit the laptop in the wall and after that incident the Graphics card can't process anything that requires high or medium graphics for example:

-When I play 720p videos the video runs very slow, it should be noted that I used to play 720p withouth any problem before the accident.

-The Windows Experience Index for Graphics went from 3.4 to 2.0 after the accident.

-Games that used to run at 30-40 FPS, now run at 2 - 3 FPS max.

- Windows AERO runs very slow now, so I if I want to use windows I have to run Windows Classic theme.

Things I've done:

1) Format my PC and tried different OSs XP, 7.
2) Flash the BIOS.
3) Change the Hard Drive with another one.
4) Change the RAM.
None of these things worked.

Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?

- screen went bad?
- Graphics card went bad?
or ?

Acer :: CD Stuck In Aspire 7520 Optical Drive
My mum (bless her heart) has managed to get a cd stuck in the optical drive of her Acer Aspire 7520 laptop. The drawer opens but unfortunately the CD remains inside, as far as I can see it's jammed above the metal casing.

I've search everywhere for instructions for removing the drive as I'm pretty certain that this would solve it but alas no luck ..... which is where you guys come in.

Acer :: 64bit Drivers For Aspire 7520 Dvdrom Drive
I have Windows Vista 64bit on my Acer Aspire 7520-5311, I thought I had upgraded all my drivers, but I NEVER use my dvdrom drive...

Well I have ordered a dvd that I really need to use on my computer and it won't work at all... I looked in Device Manager and it shows "HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20N ATA DEVICE" and "YPY EN81IZS SCSI CdRom Device" and they both say "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be currupted or missing."

I went to the Acer Europe website for 7520 [url] and I dont see DVDROM drivers under the 64bit column.

Acer :: Aspire 7520 - Cannot Play Anymore New Games Or Even Watch Any Movies On My Laptop
I have a big problem with my acer 7520. The problem is that i cannot play anymore new games or even watch any movies on my laptop. I got the laptop about a year and a half ago and everything worked great. I could watch movies even when other applications were open. I could play pretty demanding games on it that ran very well. And now about 3 months ago all that luxury stopped and i cant do any of those things anymore. Even an old game like rome total war runs at 9 fps or lower on the main map, i didnt even bother going into battle. Movies stutter and skip frames, and sometimes even get stuck on the same frame with the sound still going as if everything is fine.

My specs are:

AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-56 (2 CPUs), ~1.8GHz
2GB DDR2
NVIDIA GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M

Acer :: Aspire 9301 Boot
Machine is an Aspire 9301AWSMi running XP SP2 rather than Vista.

On boot, the machine shows the ACER BIOS screen but after that the display just goes blank. Have tried to boot from the Windows XP CD and the only difference is that following the BIOS screen I then get a message saying "Windows is inspecting your hardware configuration" and then a second or 2 later, back to a blank screen. No disc or CD activity.

Is this another ACER Motherboard problem or maybe a HDD failure?

Acer :: Aspire One Doesn't Boot
After I turn on the power, the harddisk led doesn't turn on, just the CAP and NUM led flash once. The screen doesn't turn on, even the Acer logo doesn't appear. I can hear something is turning inside the notebook, but it's definitely not the harddisk.

I wonder if I had pressed some wrong buttons, and disable the notebook.

Acer :: Aspire Wont Boot
I have an acer aspire 1681wlmi which has just finished its extended 3 year warranty. The problem started by freezing upon start up on a white screen then the freeze up got quicker and quicker each time i rebooted it. Now the power on starts the hd, everything flashes like normal and after 5-6 seconds the hd stops and the hd light goes out. It wont boot from cd, it tries, the cd spins then everything goes dead again. I have tried all the previously mentioned fixes mentioned on this forum like removing battery, memory etc, i even tried to dismantle the whole thing but when it got down to the motherboard i did not want to break anything and put it back together again. I havea feeling the mother board is dead....

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Won't Boot & No CDs From Dealer
Aspire 5920. When I purchased it from a chain electronics store, I did not receive any OS CD/DVD or any other disks with it. Now it got to the point where it had slowed down to a crawl, I went to do a system restore (Vista Home Premium) to the earliest point which was set on 24 Aug 09, and I when it went to reboot itself it is now stuck on Start Windows Normally and if I select it, it just cycles back to Start Windows Normally after about 15 seconds. I've been doing that for the past two hours. I've hit F5 to get to a screen that allows me to choose F8 and get to safe mode and other selections and all of them take me back to Start Windows Normally and the endless cycle from hell. Of course I have no CD to boot from, so I have no choices at this point. The extremely curious thing is that I know another couple of people who bought the exact same model from the same retailer and none of them got disks. The retailer apparently told one of them that Acer doesn't ship OS disks with this model. I find that hard to believe.

The boot process takes 7-10 minutes before the login screen appears. Once logged in the sysrtem appears to be working fine. I have re-instaslled multiple times (using different disks) but no matter what I try it takes an age to boot.

Could my laptop be faulty - does anyone else have Win7 running on one these?

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Won't Load And Doesn't Boot From A CD
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 7220 Flashing Power Light, Doesn't Boot
I'm trying to fix my fathers laptop so he won't have to spend money on a new one. Here's the problem:

When I press the power button to boot the laptop it does not boot, it just flashes the power light(s) on and off at maybe 1 flash per second. I've tried removing the RAM-sticks one and one, removing the HDD, removing the battery and removing the DVD reader (not all at the same time, of course). None of those helped, it still did the same thing.

Then I tried to blind flash the bios from a CD, the laptop comes on with the fan at full blast, the DVD reader comes on and it stays on, but it never finishes and powers off.

Acer :: Boot Issue On Aspire 2930 Laptop Corrupted BIOS
The strangest thing has happened to my Acer Aspire 2930 laptop today.

I shut it down last night as I normally do, then this morning I turned it on and it wouldn't boot. It goes through BIOS and startup, but then it stops. It doesn't start loading Windows XP from the hard drive, it doesn't recognise boot CDs/DVDs. When I go into the BIOS, everything looks normal except the boot portion. There are several options there, but they don't say what they normally say. For instance, the first boot device, the hard drive, is completely invisible. What I mean is that the option is just not there, but when you move the selection around with the keyboard, you can tell it's supposed to be there. Look below for a better explanation. The other options are there, but they aren't recognising the devices. I have a friend with the exact same laptop and her BIOS shows everything as it should be. She's here now and I'm typing this on her laptop because I now have two dead computers here at home.


I don't get it. It's almost like the BIOS somehow became corrupted. I didn' t even know this could happen without attempting to flash the BIOS or something, and that's not what happened. I have never flashed the BIOS on this laptop. Not only can I not figure out what happened, there doesn't seem any way to fix it. I mean, if the laptop doesn't recognise any devices to boot from... I was thinking about taking it apart and resetting the CMOS, taking out the battery. I think that's the best I can hope for at this point.

I don't have any way of cloning the BIOS from my friend's computer so I guess the next step would be to get a new BIOS chip if the CMOS reset doesn't work? The laptop is unfortunately one month over the one year warranty. I read that there's a way to get the laptop to read an external USB floppy diskette drive regardless of the status of the BIOS, you are supposed to hold the function key plus the escape key or something when you turn on the laptop a couple of times, and then it magically reads from the floppy drive. I would have to somehow buy or get a drive, but I haven't even seen such things in years. Things I can try?

Here is what my BIOS looks like compared to my friend's:

Mine:

2. IDE1 :
3. USB FDD :
4. Network Boot :
5. USB HDD :
6. USB CDROM :

My friend's:
1. IDE0 : Hitachi HTS542525K9SA00
2. IDE1 : HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T50N
3. USB FDD :
4. Network Boot : Realtek Boot Agent
5. USB HDD :
6. USB CDROM :

As you can see, there is definitely something wrong with my BIOS and I believe that's what is causing the computer not to boot.

Acer :: Aspire Timeline 5810tz Won't Boot, Can't Access Setup Or Bios
I just got an acer aspire timeline 5810tz, which came with vista, so i was in the process of reformatting it to have XP, which i've done several times on my previous laptops. When i changed the bios to IDE, which is what i read was the correct setting (perhaps this is where my problem is?), i found that i could no longer boot the computer or access setup, bios or the boot menu. When i attempt to do any of these things, the computer just sits on the logo screen.

i'm getting fairly desperate at this point, having tried a large variety of solutions, key combos, removing the battery, etc.

Acer :: 7520-5168 With 4GB RAM
Am about to purchase a brand new ACER 7520 - 5168 (Turion 64 X2 TL-60 2 GHz). This is supplied from the factory with 2GB of RAM but am going to upgrade it to 4GB.

First of all I need to know if the factory supplied 2GB Ram is installed in one slot and the other slot is vacant. Some versions come with 2 x 1GB Ram installed so both slots will be occupied.

This is supplied with Vista Home Premium edition. I read somewhere that 4GB Ram needs Vista x64 to work. Is this true ?

Acer :: Aspire 5570-2609 Will Not Boot. Hdd Light Flashes, And No Video Output
I have an Acer as5570-2609 aspire laptop that will not boot up. It is like new, hardly been used. When I power it up, the fan comes on for about 3 or 4 seconds, and the hdd light flashes three times in a row, then waits a second or two, the flashes three times again, then goes black. The dvd drive ejects and will spin up a disc, but thats it. I tried swapping in a known good hard drive and nothing helps. I also tried re-seating a few of the easily accessible modules, such as the ram and wireless. I still have not seen a single flicker of the LCD screen. No beeps, nothing...

Acer :: TravelMate 7520 Crystal Eye Webcam
I have a TravelMate 7520 with Crystal Eye Webcam, I had to reinstall my vista. Once this was done my webcam didnt work, it showed camera not found.

I have been playing about with it, which ended up meaning I unstall everything (I think). I have installed loads of drivers and software for the webcam but all failed, the camera just doesnt seem to turn on...

I have taken my screen apart unplugged it, uninstalled software, plugged in and reinstall but nothing..Plus once I have installed the driver, I look in device manager and see nothing relating to my webcam.

what I need to download, how to install and how to check the driver is in place
