Acer :: Laptop (Travelmate 5730)

May 27, 2010

The charger works fine, when pluged into the laptop the light is orange, as soon as we press the power button to turn it on, the orange light goes off, if i press the power button and let go straight away, the light stays off for 5 seconds, if i hold the power button the light stays off for around 9-11 seconds, now the shop we went to says it's a connectivity problem, and i was looking around and i was thinking about the power jack (i'm not big on laptops, more of a desktop kind of guy, so if it doesn't have one lol at me!). Anyway, i'd love to know if anyone knew or had a way of knowing what my sisters problem is, as she'd like to sell this laptop, but needs to clean her HDD of school work and general stuff that she has on it before selling it, and would prefer it to be fully working before sending it away.

Acer :: Aspire Travelmate 5730 Running Win Vista - Burned 6 Recovery Discs

Sep 22, 2009

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 :: 5735z = 5730

Nov 30, 2008

I currently have the 5735z aspire. My problem lies with Acer not having any support for this notebook. I have been searching for anything to give a bios update. I have found the 5730 aspire is practically a mirror of my laptop except for the screen size.(5735z has a 15.6) I was curious if I could use the updates for the 5730 on mine. They both have gl40 chipset and the same cpu. I noticed the bios updates starts at 1.07 and goes up to 1.14.

Mine is currently 1.07. So my question is can I use the bios for the 5730?

Acer :: 5730 Boot Bios Password And Wanted To Disable It

Aug 9, 2009

Now I am not after any passwords or any thing but I think this is disgusting.

My wife has an on boot bios password and wanted to disable it. She asked me to do it because I work in IT so it shouldnt be a problem.

I logged in with her password. Went security, user password, Press enter, typed in existing one then new password blank and confirmed it with another blank password. Rebooted and now it prompts for a password and we are stuffed.

Is this me being stupid did I do some thing wrong is that not the way to do it ?
Its appauling. We had a customer in work whos laptop was sent away to be sorted because he had the same problem. At the time I thought he was bit silly but now I can see how it could happen

Dell :: ATi HD 5730 Now Available For Studio XPS 16

May 27, 2010

Just noticed that when you customize a S-XPS 16 in the US, it now shows up as having a 5730. Good news?

So notebookcheck puts the 5730 just above the 5650, which is a few spots above the 4670. Sounds like a reasonable upgrade... maybe not a huge increase in performance... but it is DX11 and has the other new features of the 5000 series cards.

Turns out from the Dell Canada website that the new and (supposedly) improved studio xps 1647 will only sport the ATI's mobility 5730 which incidentally does not support gddr5- EVEN AS AN OEM OPTION! Many expected to see the mobility 5770 in the updated SXPS'S or at the very least, a 5750 WITH 1GB OF GDDR5. The 5730 is simply unacceptable! Dell charges TOP DOLLAR for these little puppies and now they are cutting corners on the GPU'S! Dell should be ashamed!This laptop does not even deserve the XPS moniker. The graphics are too weak. It should be a Studio Pro 1647.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Y560 / Radeon 5730 - Black Screen

Jan 27, 2013

I got an ideapad y560 0646 with i7 and radeon 5730 without switchable graphics. After starting, the windows logo appears and afterwards just a black screen. No windows logon. Starting with standard vga drivers is possible. I am currently running windows 7 prof 64 bit. I remember that i installed windows 7 prof 32 bit in november 2011 and after installing the graphic drivers from lenovo homepage i faced the same issue.

So I continued using windows 7 64 bit. i think there was a windows update which caused the issues for windows 7 64 bit. I installed the latest drivers but this didnt work. i think this is no hardware issue because ubuntu is running fine. i would like to try the old drivers which came with the y560 on cd. unfortunately i cant find the cd.
Does some have the old driver cd and could upload the drivers or name the file of the driver so i can download it from the web?

I successfully upgrade an old laptop so that it will run well and not be too costly to upgrade either? So slow at present....

Laptop is:
acer travelmate 4502WLMi running xpsp3

Was thinking that probably the only upgrades worth considering were ram and hdd.

If this is the case what size mem and spec will work?

If the hdd is worth upgrading do I go for internal or external? and what size ?

Acer :: TravelMate 530

Sep 24, 2008

I have just been given a TravelMate 530 2.2 cpu Lappy

Fine for all I need but I would love to upgrade the memory. I see it says it can only go up to 1 gig and that it has 256 as standard.

I see there is a slot under a cover on the back, but only 1 slot (Unless I'm not looking properly)

Can I just stick a 1 gig unit in this slot and all will be fine or is there some unusual method to upgrading the memory. Hope it's nothing like the old Dells

Acer :: TravelMate 2300 FAT Only

Mar 8, 2009

I was given an Acer TravelMate 2300 by someone who has a new one. It came with no guarantees and no recovery CD. It had working verison of XP Pro on it through SP2. I applied SP3 and several updates. It worked good until... I noticed that the C drive was formatted FAT32. So I thought it a good idea to move it to NTFS. Without checking, I fired in "convert c: /fs:ntfs". It rebooted and after a brief look at the Windows XP splash, it goes straight to a stop code x0000024 BSOD. There was nothing on the drive except for the OS so I was felt OK withjust reinstalling from my media.

I dragged out my copy of XP pro slipstreamed with SP2. Booted from CD, went through XP's native setup and detected an "unknown" partition where C used to be. I must've really slammed it. I chose to install to the unknown partition and XP offered to format it NTFS. I chose the thorough format option but it goes only to 24% and stops. The display still shows the progress bar, blue background etc. at 24%.

Since I don't have much experience with laptops, let me ask, is it possible that this laptop/drive ONLY formats to FAT or FAT32 and won't take an NTFS volume? If it will, are there any ideas out there how to apply and NTFS format so I can get this cute little laptop back to a usable state?

Still it doesn't work!

Acer :: TravelMate 2420 Overheating

Jun 23, 2009

I bought a used Acer TravelMate 2420 laptop (WinXP, RAM 1 GM, hard disk 40 GB, Intel Celeron M processor 1,50 GHZ) and since the beginning it had overheating problems and also some issues with power management. And yes, I know it was a stupid thing to buy it, but knowing it doesn't help.

Now the problems:
1. Whatever I do, it keeps overheating, even if no programs are opened. The laptop's fan works very vaguely, and I can hardly hear any sound of it. At first it didn't trouble me much, as it was winter and it would still work, although heated up. I also bought an USB ventilation pad (2 fans), and it helped for some time. But now, when the air temperature is over 30 degrees (in the room), the laptop just "freezes" in the middle of work and stays like this for about 20 min, or just suddenly shuts down completely.

2. I can't turn it off if the power supply is on - I have to unplug it just before the computer shuts down, otherwise it keeps on restarting. Also I can't use it without a battery, as it doesn't turn off in any way (even pressing the power button for a long time doesn't help), and I have to unplug power supply (which ain't no good for computer).

What I already tried to do:
1. Re-installed Windows, installed updates.

2. Checked the computer with various antivirus and antimalware programs (Avira, AVG-free, Malwarebytes' Anti-malware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware).

3. Installed additional Acer utilities: Acer emPowering Framework, Acer ePerformance Management, Acer ePower Management - but they basically didn't let me change anything important (like the fan speed, for example). With PowerManager I changed the CPU speed to Medium, well, it helped a little bit, but the comp. is totally slow now (and still overheats) ... if I set the speed to High, it just turns off after about 10 minutes.

4. Instaled SpeedFan to speed up the fan - but it didn't detect any fan in the computer!

5. Dismantled the laptop (removed the hard disk, the keyboard) to see if the fan isn't clogged, but I still couldn't reach it. So I just used a vacuum-cleaner as much as I could reach, but of course it didn't change anything.

6. Oh and of course I disabled all the unnecessary programmes (by modifying msconfig -> startup).

7. Ran HDD diagnostics, S.M.A.R.T. report showed no problems.

I've read quite a lot now about these laptops, and seems like they all have this overheating problem, but it's usually solved by using a ventilating pad (which helped in my case a bit, but basically didn't solve the problem). I didn't found anybody having these power problems, so I guess maybe a previous user made some stupid modifications... I just don't know how to fix them now.

Acer :: Travelmate 5602 Screen

Jan 31, 2010

I uninstalled 2 programs and deleted shared files after the uninstall.

On reeboot of the computer my screen was pixellated and it was hard to read text.

I have tried the following to get the screen back to normal.

System restore
reload uninstalled programs

Installed video drivers

Contacted Acer who told me to put system back to factory defaults, which I did

Nothing has worked so far

I have set my screen size to 1024 * 768 which allows me to read text but the screen still doesn't look right.

I have plugged in an external monitor which there is no problem with.

Acer :: I Want To Upgrade TravelMate 8100 HDD, RAM, OS

Jul 1, 2008

I want to upgrade my now-3-year-old TravelMate 8100's HDD, RAM, and OS (to Vista).

The memory is easy enough, but I have a PATA HDD. Do I have to replace it with a PATA drive or can I use a SATA drive? Is there any concern with more power consumption with a faster drive?

I don't know anything about hard drives so I am not sure of the difference of terms like PATA, SATA, ATA-6, etc.

Do I need to flash the BIOS if I change the drive to a SATA one? I see that some of the versions say for SATA systems only.

Acer :: Travelmate 2490 CPU UpgradeFailed

Nov 28, 2008

I got my hands on a Core Duo T2050 to drop in my 2490. I went for that CPU as it was cheap, and a 533 FSB, my 2490 allegedly has a 943 chipset (based on the code on the sticker, which started AY702.002). Updated to the latest BIOS, which in the notes has dual core support for various chips.

Fitted it, turned the machine on, and... Nothing. Well, not quite nothing, had the fan and power light, but nothing else.

I've no reason to suspect the CPU is faulty, so I guess it just doesn't work. What puzzles me is why it doesn't work. Surely as it's teh right socket, the chipset should work with it, and the BIOS has dual core support it should work? Unless the motherboard model sticker was fibbing, but that seems unlikely as this machine has DDR2 and SATA, which ties in with being a 943 as well.

Is there a reason why this particular CPU doesn't work, and a definite option for one that does? I can live with droppnig a core solo in, but would rather go dual core for the money

Acer :: Travelmate 5624 Does Not Cool

Aug 19, 2009

I have problems with the high temperature of my Travelmate 5624WSMI. It is too hot!

- I cannot hear any fan running (I do not know if I should, and I do not remember if I did when it worked properly).

- I read that it might be due to dust. For this reason I tried to clean it (them?) with a can of compressed air but with no success.

- I installed SpeedFun. I read this: GPU 51 C (or more!); HDO 42 C; Temp1 32 C; Temp2 42 C; Core0 46 C; Core1 46 C. As I understand, GPU is burning.

- I tried to open my notebook but without success. I do not how to do it.

Acer :: Travelmate 8571 Freezing

Sep 10, 2009

A week ago i bought an Acer Travelmate 8571 with Linus. I installed legal WinXP with SP3 and latest drivers/updates.

After start the computer freezes within 10-20 minutes independently on the running programs. To reboot it one has to use the Power button.

This is not the overheating: the ventilator works and the air temperature is cool. I guess, it can be either problem of the BIOS (v.1.02), which is not able to work with XP, or a wrong installation of the XP.

Does anyone have an idea on the source of the trouble? I would like to keep the notebook due to the advantages of extremely low noise production and long accumulator working time.
