Acer :: Aspire Not Recognizing Ram

Oct 20, 2008

ive got a slight problem with my laptop. 2-3 months ago i added an addition gig of ram to my acer aspire 3050 for a total of 1.5gbs. it was the correct type of ram(i made sure it was the same as what was already in there). for some reason the computer will recognize that the ram has been placed in the slot but it does use it at all. when i am running programs will it will still draw what's needed from the hard drive even though peak usage rarely surpassed 700mb of ram. was there something i was supposed to activate/adjust after installing the ram?

and another disconcerting thing is that since i installed the ram the fan is on fullblast 100% of the time and the machine heats up almost to the point of overheating really fast even when doing basic things like surfing the web

Acer :: Aspire Not Recognizing Blu-Ray

Dec 13, 2009

I have been searching for days for Blu-ray help. Apparently after everything I've looked at, ACER really screwed up their ads of blu-ray on computer. Because, even though my notebook should play wont even recognize the disc. It tells me there is nothing there. I am getting really fustrated that there are no drivers or any other useful help out there.

Acer :: Aspire 3023WLMi Not Recognizing Harddrive & Dvd

Jan 29, 2008

A friend brought me a Aspire 3023WLMi few weeks ago. Problem: Unable to boot. BIOS didn't recognize harddrive. I switched it to another laptop which reported SMART-error. I replaced it with another harddrive. Now BIOS still won't recognize harddrive or DVD-drive (can't remember if it recognized DVD earlier with original harddrive). I can't open DVD-drive, so obviously it's not getting any power. if this a sign of broken MB, or just loose cabling? Or something else? If it's loose cabling, how to check it?

Acer Aspire V3-571g :: USB 3.0 Port Not Recognizing Any Device

Oct 27, 2014

I put a new Windows 8 on my pc due too my old HDD dying --' and my recovery partition was corrupted so i had to clone the c:/ drive of a friend of mine with a similar laptop on my new sshd.

Until now everything was working fine some double drivers but they posed no problems but i have 1 problem with my 1 usb 3.0 port, it won't recognise anything, when i put in my external hdd it fires up so i know the port is giving power but it doens't recognise the drive, same goes for my usb wireless mouse and usb drive.

I know its not the drives or mouse themselves because when i put them in one of my usb 2.0 ports they function without problem.
I have already tried uninstalling the drivers, restarting the computer, took out the battery for several minutes and so on.
I also remarked that in the devices and printers there is a device called unknown USB device (port reset failed)...

Acer Aspire 7740-5691 :: DVD Disc Not Recognizing And Communicating With Computer

Dec 5, 2014

I had my notebook evaluated by a local technician who told me the trouble I was experiencing was due to the DVD disc not recognizing and communicating with the computer. Upon further investigation she determined that the drive did read and play audio just fine. Video and graphics (pictures) would not play on the drive. Her conclusion was that the drive had a defect of some sort related to the DVD function only.
I have two questions.

1. Could it be that the ROM is corrupt and can that be replaced?
2. IF I have to replace the drive can I do that myself or do I have to have a professional do it??

Acer :: Timeline 3810T Not Recognizing IPhone

Nov 5, 2009

I've got an odd problem - my iPhone neither charges nor is recognised by USB2 on my 3810T. Tried same lead and phone on desktop and other PCs no problem. I'm running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit on both laptop and main PC.

My normal iPod classic connects and charges fine via the 3810T as do other peripherals like the external DVD-RW and memory sticks. Sony Ericsson mobile phone connects and charges too.

Can anyone explain this or has anyone either had the same problem or have connected successfully with an iPhone?

Acer :: Windows 8.1 - P276M Not Recognizing USB Flash Keys

Dec 12, 2014

I've a new P276M laptop running Windows 8.1. I can't get it read USB flash storage devices.
The USB ports seem to be working - wireless mouse OK. Also it works fine with an external Seagate hard drive.
I've tried a number of different flash keys - encrypted and non-encrypted. The system 'sees' the device but all I can get in Device Manager is an icon with yellow exclamation mark.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000T Not Recognizing RAM

Jan 28, 2009

I have a DV6000T with Windows MCE bought in Jan 07. It came with 2 GB of RAM, and I finally decided to upgrade to 4 (although I know it can only read 3.12). I bought 2 x 2GB Kingston DDR 2 PC2-5300 667 MHz RAM and installed both sticks into my DV. I turned on the thing expecting to see 3.12 or something of the sort in the system area, but it still only shows 2GB.

Dell :: E6400 Not Recognizing Second Stick Of RAM

Sep 3, 2009

I received my E6400. In short, I like it. It came with 1gb of Ram. So I ordered 4gb of Crucial (2x2gb) ddr2 6400 to put in it.

Well. It's only recognizing one stick of it. The Ram itself is not bad. I've verified this by placing each stick in individually and I get no errors. Would there be any reason the computer would not be recognizing that second stick that isn't hardware?

The bios says the second slot is empty. Which either means that for some reason the software isn't recognizing the ram or the second slot itself is bad?

Started out with XP. It did the same thing. only 1 stick was recognized.
I've installed Vista Home Premium 64-bit.
Bluetooth upgrade was user installed.
What other system info do you need?

Dell Inspiron 14z :: Not Recognizing AC Adapter

Dec 6, 2014

Yesterday, my laptop stopped recognizing the ac adapter.  It's been functioning fine until now.   Now, it will not charge the battery and I can only use my computer with the cord.  I purchased in late 2011 or early 2012.

Have read other dell model posts that suggest replacing the adapter, battery, updating BIOS, etc. Haven't seen anything related to my model.

HP/Compaq :: Computer Not Recognizing Hard Drive

Jan 18, 2010

i recently had a post here about my laptop being thrown up on, and looking for a new system board. Well I was able to buy the whole laptop base, with system board and power button so all i had to do was install the screen cd drive, hard drive, and wireless. I did all of this and put it back together, but when i try to start the computer it gives me a no hard drive installed error. What can I do? I ran the memory test and its 100% working, and in the start up test or whatever, the only thing with a problem is the hard drive not showing up.

HP/Compaq :: Tx2zRM Clock Not Recognizing Proc

Aug 18, 2009

I just got a new tx2z yesterday, opened it up, took forever cuz of bloatware. I downloaded a copy of windows 7 from MSDNAA (Thank you college) and installed it and found drivers for the pen and everything.

I knew from the reviews that the tablet runs HOT, and was going to use RMClock since I heard people using it to undervolt their processor. However, RMClock 2.35 does not recognize my processor (AMD Turion Ultra ZM-83 2.3ghz)

I did the vista 64-bit RMClock fix in order to run the application, but since it doesn't recognize the processor, there's nothing I can do to undervolt it.

Also, does anyone know of any fan control software that I can install that works? Something like I8K for dell that works on the tx2z? (64 bit windows 7 that is)

Apple :: Macbook - Recognizing Part Number

May 25, 2010

My fan recently died in my macbook (early 2008, probably a penryn right?) and i decided to replace it myself.

I ordered a fan that was stated it would fit all macbook's except the macbook with unibody.

It was shipped from the US and i live in Sweden so it took a while. I recieved it today and lo and behold, it does not fit.

I've opened up a dispute with the seller but i need to fix my laptop asap so i need to get another fan somewhere.

I will probably be buying from ebay since it's cheaper, but this time i want to be certain i get the right part.

I wanted to ask if i can identify what fan i want and don't just go by the description of the item (since that fooled me once)?............

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Not Recognizing AC Adapter Although It Is Working Well

Jun 26, 2012

Every time I turn on my Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop, I get the following message:

"The AC adapter wattage and type cannot be determined. The battery may not charge. The system will adjust the performance to match the power available. Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or greater for the best system performance."

I don't know why I am getting this message since:

- I am using the 65W Dell AC adapter that came with the laptop- The adapter is charging the battery properly- The green light on the adapter stays on all the time when in use- The port connection is fine

So, other than this annoying error message, everything seems to be working fine. Should I just ignore it ?  If not, what else do you recommend I do ?

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Not Recognizing Mouse Clicks

Mar 2, 2013

I own a Dell Inspiron N5010.  I am having a problem with the mouse, both the touchpad, and when I plug an external mouse in (although the problem seems to occur with somewhat less frequency when I am using the external mouse).  The computer is having trouble recognizing mouse clicks.  Sometimes it recognizes them properly, sometimes it responds to left clicks as if they were right clicks, and sometimes it does not respond to them at all.  The problem seems to be worse when I am using  a web browser, but it occurs consistently.

Dell Latitude E6820 :: Docking Station Not Recognizing 2nd Monitor

Feb 24, 2013

I have a Dell Latitude E6820 and have just connected a new Dell E-Port Plus II Docking station.  Plugged in to the docking station are two monitors, one plugged into DVI Connector 1 and the other plugged into DVI Connector 2.  The laptop is running Windows 7 64 bit.

Try as I might, I can not get the system to recognise the second monitor.  I have tried the following to get this to work.

- Enabled Optimus (I think that is what it was called in the BIOS) - When I enabled this, neither of the monitors would work via the docking station

- Disabled Optimus - One monitor works

- Attempted to detect the other monitor via Control Panel > Display > Adjust Resolution (monitor not detected)

- Swapped monitors and cables in case it was a cable or monitor issue.  All Cables and Monitors have been verified as working as expected.

- Attempted to connect one monitor via VGA cable.  Only one monitor was detected

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Windows 8.1 Pro And USB 3.0 Not Recognizing DVI LCD Panel On T440s

Sep 24, 2014

When I connect the USB 3.0 dock to my T440s, I then cannot get the second LCD monitor to be recognised by Windows via the USB3.0.
The monitor is not being recognised as it is is not seen as one of the optional displays in the 'Intel HD Graphics control panel' window.
The driver however for the second monitor is fully up to date and it works fine when I connect the LCD to the VGA port directly on my computer.  Also the second monitor is being recognised partly by the windows OS as it comes up as a second screen under the 'screen resolution' window.
My set up is shown below.  I am thinking that perhaps there is an issue with either the NVIDIA or Intel HD graphics chip. I read somewhere that windows uses one or the other depending on the load.  I am worried that there is some problem with that mechanism. All driver are up to date.
System Unit
Nvidia GT730M Graphics without docking connector
4th Gen Intel Core i7-4600U Processor (4MB Cache, up to 3.30GHz)
  Display Panel
14.0" FHD IPS With WWAN

Dell Latitude E6330 :: Not Recognizing Japanese Keyboard After Upgrade To Win 7 Ultimate

Mar 13, 2013

We have a Latitude E6330 that was brought over from Japan running Windows 7 Professional.

The new user wanted teh default language to be English but still be able to use the Japanese characters on the keyboard as needed and so a copy of Windows 7 ultimate was installed on it. This achieved the goal of changing the primary language to English, but due to the fact that this was a US version of Ultimate and the original OS was Japanese, it did not due an upgrade but instead did a new install.

A side effect of this is now several Japanese keys are not recognized by the computer. Is there a driver or something that i will need to install for those keys to be mapped properly? I thought Windows would automatically recognize the Japanese keyboard.

Dell Studio 1737 :: Not Recognizing Hard Drive - Not Listed In BIOS

Feb 20, 2013

I have been looking at a Studio 1737 laptop for a friend. Iniitally it wasn't booting, and it looked like a hard disk failure. I removed the disk and tried it on an external USB to SATA connector, and couldn't access it from there either.

I ordered a new SATA drive and installed it. Tried to install Vista back from the recovery disks, but it couldn't detect a drive. Checked in BIOS and it wasn't listed. Changed the BIOS setting to IDE, but still not found. I returned that one and purchased another, but the same problem. That disk was also returned and has been tested OK.

I'm suspecting that there may another issue, but i'm not sure where to look.

Acer :: The Aspire Or The Aspire Timeline

Jan 13, 2010

I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.

The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?

Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:

Aspire A5538-1096

Aspire Timeline 5810-4784

My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?
