Acer :: New Aspire 3680: Fan Running Constantly


I just bought this new acer 3680 1 month ago because i needed a laptop for my studying. basicly all i need it for is to take notes from classes, and surf the web (youtube etc).
ok so basicly the first impression with preinstalled vista was horrible. incredible lag... 3 seconds delay at all times when browsing the web. and completely unable to playback any form of media with any other windows open without the sound lagging like crazy... all that kind of stuff

but the main problem seems to be the fan. It runs at high speed (producing as much noise as my desktop computer). The fan turns on aprroximately 4 minutes after you turn on your computer, or immediately after you open an application.. and it just keeps on running untill you turn off your computer... It is so annoying that i have trouble bringing the computer to class (which is where i really need it!) because i feel embarrased about the noise, and frankly i think this is an annoyance to the other students aswell. Is this a common problem with 3680? No one of the other students pc's fans run when they just use basic applications like word, or internet explorer, and they certainly dont do it when simply idling on the desktop.

furthermore it needs to be said that i have messed around with vista alot, and tweaked it in every possible way to remove pressure of the cpu.. and ofc removed all antivirus programs etc. Furthermore i tried installing XP, and guess what.... it took 5 mins of idling on the desktop in the brand newly installed xp for the fan to start again!!! so i conclude that the problem is not caused by vista overloading the cpu!. Does anyone else have this problem with their aspire 3680? maybe im just overly sensitive about the noise, but really it isnt supposed to run at all times.

Sony :: Vaio SR290 Hard Drive Have Been Running Constantly
Im having a major issue with my SR290 and Sony Repair Center specifically.

Ok, I just noticed that my hard drive have been running constantly and never under an idle state about 3 weeks ago.

I restored the computer twice but every time I turn it on, the hard drive and the fan makes really loud noises. Even when there are absolutely no applications running,

the hard drive runs and makes obvious noises. I used to be sitting late at night surfing the internet and having absolutely no noise from the laptop, but now even when I just turn it on, its really loud. If I leave it on for over a few hours, the fan exhaust starts to expel really warm air

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Mobo
My laptop wont turn on at all, no lights at all. The power supply is fine, and I opened it up and found a few burnt capacitors. Ive searched on ebay for Aspire 3680 mobo but all have different model numbers to mine. My model number is DA0ZR1MB06D1 REV.D. Also on the RAM socket it has another number which is MBAZL060017090E53B2505 and below that it has 31ZR1MB00I0. I cannot find one on ebay with the same numbers as above. Will it make a difference if I get one which has a few numbers/letters which are different to my current one?

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Sound
I recently picked up a 3680, upgraded to a 320GB hard drive and switched to xp from Vista. Runs great but the speakers sound like they are down in a well literally. Could it be the drivers or do I need to replace the speakers? Anyone else have this problem? The reason I believe the speakers are ok is when I use headphones it sounds the same.

Acer :: Vista To Xp On Aspire 3680
I Bought and Xp Disk but, It doesnt detect my harddrive (Classic Sata Problem)

So I hear there are two ways to get around this...

1.)Change AHCI in Bios, which doesnt work for me because my laptop doesnt seem to have this Option in Bios, so thats out...

2.) And Slipstreaming which I have found drivers that people have refferred to other people but I dont quite understand how they work...(The tutorial I was reading and the drivers I downloaded didnt add up)

So I was hoping someone could give me specific instructions( for my model) for either of these methods to install Xp (Spent lot of cash on the disk dont want it go to to waste)

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Touchpad
Basic issue is that all of a sudden the touchpad has stopped working and that little icon that was in the systray has dissapeared. it was working fine a few weeks ago. i currently am using a USB mouse, but i need the touchpad at uni as the desk space is very limited. its a shame this issue has came up now a day before a MAJOR assesment is due, and i cant finnish it because i cant use the mouse at uni.

Anyways, so i have tried the FN+F7 thing, doesnt work. Tried Re installing and rebooting the drivers, still doesnt work. tried a system restore to when it was working. still doesnt work i have basically tried EVERYTHING mentioned on various forums and on google. nothing seems to work. the drivers appear to be installed but wont work for some reason. i will attach photos to the main options so you can see how it appears to me.

there are no bios otpions i looked for those. seriously its so weird, nothing works and its very frustrating! in the past few weeks i have installed adobe illustrator CS3, dont know if that could be the reason for it not working, but i dont think so. I have windows XP SP2. when i try installing the original drivers off a backup cd my dad made, it just installs and does nothing. i downloaded the newest drivers from the website and still the same thing. the program does appear in the program files, and the control panel/add remove, but just doesnt seem to run!

Acer :: Aspire 5738G Fan Runs Almost Constantly
When I power on, after about 5-6 minutes the fan (I assume the CPU fan) kicks in. However, it then seems to remain on constantly until the laptop is turned off, even if I'm only idling. This is slightly annoying, not just because of the noise, but also it seems to have quite a noticeable effect on the battery life.

I have installed SpeedFan to keep track of the CPU temp and it seems that the fan kicks in initally when the core temps reach about 35 C, but then the fan does not switch off, even when temps drop back down to 25/26 C, which seems very cool.

On every other laptop I have used (none of which were Acers), the CPU fan only comes on now and again, as and when it is needed.

So, is this normal behaviour or is there possibly a fault with the fan control mechanism ? If so I will consider taking back to the retailer for an exchange.

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Celeron 430 Overclocking
overclocking the Intel Celeron 440 Processor on the Acer Aspire 3680. Here is a screenshot:

As you can see, I overclocked my friend's Acer Aspire 3680. The Celeron M 440 went from 1.86ghz to an amazing 2.35, for an increase of 490mhz! Now, this is definitely not going to be the most safe overclock, and it will consume a lot more power and heat up much quicker, but it is just to show how much you can overclock the Acer 3680.

Here is how I did it:

1. Download CPUCool. (Costs $18 to save your stuff, otherwise it won't for the shareware version)

CPUFSB did not work for me but it may work for you. It is free. Try it

2. Install CPU Cool and say yes to a desktop shortcut and running under windows start up. Now, restart your computer as it tells you too.

3. Go to Functions, change CPU FSB, and then select I don't know. A PLL drop down menu should show up.

4. Make sure it is ICS on the left. Then, go down and choose 954310 all the way at the bottom. Click fine tuning, click ok, and then it should show your frequency. If it doesn't show 1866, and a number less, then download Rightmark CPU Clock Utility and select throttling under profiles and set it to 100%. Unforunately you can't change the voltages.

5. Click fine tuning in CPU Cool, now it should show 1866mhz. Just add 60, 10, or .10 or so mhz by click + 60, +10, or just +. I recommend 2000mhz for the best balance of speed, power, and longevity.

6. Check both boxes as the right under Tray Frequency 1. Click set frequency, ok, and then minimize to tray. Do not close, because your clocks will be reset!....

Acer :: Aspire 2000 CL32 Resetting Constantly
notebook- Acer Aspire 2000 series CL32

problem- resetting itself constantly!

Explanation- Basically, one day after normal operation of my computer, I turned it off properly. The next time i went to turn it on, it comes up with the normal BLUE screen which has "acer aspire" on it. Down the bottom it says f2 to boot or something and f12 to enter setup menu.

If i do not press anything, it goes to a black screen and attempts to locate a boot cd. After it does not find one, it goes black, then up comes the BLUE screen which says "acer aspire" on it. If i do not press anything or touch anything, this process will keep going and going until i turn it off by holding down the on/off power button.

Resolution / what i have attempted to do-I CAN enter setup menu, by pressing f12 on the blue acer aspire screen. Once i am in the setup menu, i attempt to exit. I have attempted to exit the setup menu in all way, incl. disgarding changes, saving changes etc etc.
Each time i try to exit the menu a different way, It just goes to a black screen for a few moments, then repeats the process of going back to the blue acer aspire screen.
I have attempted to insert a boot cd. So after the blue screen, it goes to the black screen and attempts to find the boot cd. After locating it, it verifies it, says something like "found in drive C" or something similar, then it goes back to the same process.

Question- How the hell can I use my computer again?

Further note- 80% of my data has been saved on an external hard disk so rebooting or any other process is fine by me, I just want to be able to use my computer again.
Before attempting all the above processes, I disconnected everything from my computer e.g. all usb devices. I have tried it on batteries and with the power cable.

Acer :: Dropped Aspire 3680 Just The Screen, Or Other Hw Broken
My husband dropped his Aspire 3680-2682 the other day and the screen went wonky. I booted it off a VGA monitor and it seems to be fine running from there, BUT I could not get it to boot to VGA except in safe mode, and when I choose to boot in regular mode it goes to the LCD screen and doesn't allow switching the display to the external monitor.

This is the only thing that concerns me that it might not be just the screen that sustained damage.

I was eventually able to get th bezel off (it doesn't come 100% off on this model but doesn't need to) and remove the lcd panel for inspection. The thin board taped to the back of the panel doesn't seem to be visibly broken or strained and the connectors to it were taped so firmly in place they didn't budge on impact. The small board that rests at the bottom of the top case under the bezel (the inverter?) can't be inspected well and I don't want to damage it by trying. In any case nothing appears damaged to the naked eye on or around the screen.

The first pic is how the screen looks when booted; it also (visibly) flickers and redraws continuously. The second shows that applying pressure allows a clearer view of the console and stops the flickering.

I have found a replacement screen online for 50.00 and feel comfortable enough trying to replace it rather than spend the cost of a new laptop on sending it for repairs.

However, if it's not just the screen I don't want to throw more money at this.

In your experienced opinions, does it look like the damage is typical of a broken LCD screen and not something in the motherboard? (no clue on how to get a closer look at that stuff. took every screw out of it last night and couldn't get the bottom case to reveal its secrets.)

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Internal Dial-up Modem
I recently downgraded my girlfriends Acer Aspire 3680 from Vista to XP as it became apparent that this notebook couldn't handle vista well; (on a side note, this is the second aspire 3680 that I have downgraded). For some reason no matter what I do the computer does not see the internal dial-up modem. Now, as its internal there is no installation disc, I have downloaded 6 different acer aspire 3680 modem drivers from Acer support centers and not a single one worked. In the Device manager, the modem drop down is not even there. I ran the modem troubleshooter and it detected no port was found, but Ports weren't in the device manager either. This one is really stumping me and i'm tired of looking at that screen.

Acer :: Memory Upgrade/Resolution Change - Aspire 3680
My brother just bought an Acer Aspire 3680.He purchased 1 gig of DDR2 Memory from Crucial. When we get to the desktop the screen is fine at first then the screen goes off and back on with 8 bit display. 512 DDR2 came in the machine. Crucial site said he could mix memory sizes. I tried it with the 1 gig stick by itself in case the mixed memory was the problem. Same thing..I've tried 2 sticks of 512...same thing. I've tried 2 sticks of 1 gig each..same problem. This laptop won't allow any upgrade at all. Will only run correctly with (1) 512 stick. I've never seen this problem before. I've installed many memory sticks in computers. This is a first for me. What could be causing this?? Any advice would be appreciated. BTW. the computer shows the upgrade amount of memory but the display color keeps changing to 8 Bit! I change it back to 32 and it reverts back after a few moments to 8 Bit. I went to Acer and installed an updated driver for the Intel Graphics card thinking the driver would help. I haven't installed a bios update yet. Called Acer and they said to return it for repair.

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Hard Drive Crashed; Need Restore CD
My high school-age son was working on an English paper when something fell off a shelf and whacked his Aspire 3680 right above the hard drive bay. It started clicking and finally crashed.

The computer won't run with the hard drive installed. It makes nasty clicking sounds trying to boot, and finally beeps and powers off. Without the hard drive, the laptop powers up and runs BIOS just fine.

We can buy a new hard drive, but it seems awful to pay Acer another $20 + $10 shipping for the Vista restore disk!

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Running Extremely Slow
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 :: Aspire 9301awsmi With 1GB Ram Running Vista HP- RAM Upgrade
I have an Aspire 9301awsmi with 1GB Ram running Vista HP. Been wondering whether it's worthwhile upping the RAM to 2gb.

1. Have used "Crucial" to see what they recommend. Would an upgrade work straight off and be recognised correctly or are any BIOS changes needed. Never entered the BIOS yet!

2. What sort of gains could I reasonably expect. The biggest slowdown I have is with FSecure and certain webpages ( Forums etc ) where the system can freeze now and then.

Would more RAM help here. Resource monitor shows FSecure as the culprit hogging the HDD. Start up from cold for the desktop to fully appear is around 3+ minutes with a further 3 or 4 minutes of pretty hard HDD thrashing when things are a bit unresponsive.

Acer :: Aspire Travelmate 5730 Running Win Vista - Burned 6 Recovery Discs
My friend as just bought an Acer Aspire Travelmate 5730 running WinVista.

We set up the laptop yesterday and burned 6 recovery discs in case anything goes wrong with the laptop.

I dont know much about laptops and with my pc ive always had the operating system on a cd so i could fix any problem using the cd.

This laptop as a 250gb HDD when i looked on the computer this HDD appears to have two partitions on it Cdrive that you boot upto then the other drive i think must be a back up drive.

The back up drive seems to take up 50% of the HDD this seems to be a large chunk of the HDD or is there somthing im misunderstanding here.

I also set up a wireless connection for this laptop there's no problem connecting to the internet while'st in the same room as the router but can't connect from a different room this defeats the object of a wireless connection.

Acer :: 3680 Boot From USB
I am working on an Acer 3680 Laptop for my son.

The internal IDE port got fried and cannot be recognized by the laptop so I came up with the bright idea of installing an OS on a USB drive and booting from that.

XP appears to be the only OS that will install onto an external drive. But, when booting with XP, I get a BSOD..

VISTA won't install to a USB drive so I installed VISTA on the external drive using a workstation, but then when I tried to boot up with the laptop, it got the solid B/W bar at the bottom and just sat there.

Is there any option to boot an ACER 3680 with an xternal drive?? Or is this laptop now useless?

Acer :: Fan Starts And Stops Constantly
Model: Acer Aspire 4720-4538

The CPU fan is totally off when the CPU temp is under 55C (according to Everest). Once it's over 55C, it goes onto its low setting. Somewhere higher up, it goes to its high setting.

The problem: Even just browsing the web and doing light desktop work (IM, Explorer, Word), the CPU temp creeps up to 55C pretty easily. Once it does, the fan shoots on, but it only takes about 3 seconds to get to below 55C, so it shuts off again. Without the fan, the temp goes up past 55C again, and the cycle restarts.

The result is an on-off-on-off-on-off fan that turns on or stays off for only about 2-5 seconds at a time. REALLY annoying, esspecially in an otherwise quiet library environment. I can see people looking over at me with a "what the f is wrong with your computer" look.

I've updated the BIOS to its latest as of this date (Jan 06 2009) on the Acer site (3810), that didn't help any.

I've read (on this site) that Acer uses something propertiary to control their fan, causing normal fan control software to not work on Acer's.

Does anybody know of any software that will let me control the speed of the fan? I tried the fan control software for the Acer Aspire One, which didn't seem to work.

Acer :: 3680 Battery Life
Ive had my Acer 3680 since 4/07. I bought it brand new.

I keep it on the charger 85% of the time, and when its not on a/c power, I switch over to "power save" mode.

I was surprised about a month or two ago when my battery icon had a red "X" through it.

It would be there whether it was charging or on battery power. When I switched to battery power, it would be at 100%, but then be down to 7% in like 2 minutes and shut off. I was able to get a new battery on ebay and now I have no problems. I cant help but wonder though, how long are people reporting with their 3680's?

We have a Dell laptop at work that we've had for 5 years with the original battery. Im not trying to diss Acer or anything. It could be I just got a fluke battery. I'd like to see how long your 3680 battery lasted before you had to replace it?

Acer :: Tried Running The Recovery Disks It Kept Saying There Was No Appropriate Partition
I have a bit older Acer Extensa 4620Z - quite a while back (probalby 9 months) i had problems with it and it stopped working, couldnt find operating system or hard drive. I finnally decided to buy a new hard drive for it once i found out it was that the hard drive had died. I got my new seagate harddrive and installed it - I also order recovery disks from Acer so I could get my system back up and running.

This is where my problem is. I can see the harddrive from bios and at first when i tried running the recovery disks it kept saying there was no appropriate partition. I made a bootable copy of a program so I could create partitions on the harddrive. I did this and then tried running the recovery disks. This time it went further and started the recovery process but everytime it gets to D1E4T303.044 in the process (at 47%) - it stops... and sits there a second and then either jumps to 100% and starts over or an error pops up (error: 0xD000001D).

I can not figure out where to go from here - isn't there some way I can use the recovery disks to get my system up and running on the new hard drive?

Acer :: T9400 Running On A 10.5 Multiplyer (6935G)
CPU-Z is showing that my T9400 occasionally changes to either 10 or 10.5 multiplier. SiS Sandra Lite also lists it as a 2.79GHz processor.

I thought it was locked down at 9.5. Guessing it's due to it being an ES... Is there a way to control it?

Acer :: 5520 Shuts Down When Setup Is Running
I have an issue with my acer 5520. When I press F2 and enter setup My computer will just shut off! It may take 5 seconds or even up to 20 seconds but I got on to change my login options and it just shut off. I did this several times and it shut off time after time. My computer never turns off when I load windows and run Vista. I don't know if I need to update my bios or what.

Dell :: Really Bad FPS Drops Constantly
I recently started to have really bad FPS drops.

Whenever i play any type of games, Frame rates drops by half if not more every few second to minutes constantly.

I thought it might've been a bad driver install but even tho I reinstalled 10.3 preview it still had the same problem. I also reverted back to an older driver but still had the same problem
