Preferred Solution: My Acer notebook won't switch on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Have you wiped the RAM and the deep sleep settings by unplugging it from the AC adapter and also removing the battery, then waiting half an hour?

When switching on, the power button lights up and f12 (wifi light) lights up orange. The caps lock light flashes twice between pauses. The screen does not light up and the computer doesn't seem to respond to anything. I've tried a hard reset to try and fix it but it doesn't seem to have changed anything. It's just over a year old and is used mainly for the internet on trusted sites.

Hi I recently purchased a Tiny universal adaptor after having left my H.P charger in a different location which meant I was going to be without it for a week or so.The Tiny charger did not pass on any power to the laptop.. I have since got back the H.P charger which came with the laptop, and tried powering it up. Still nothing.  My laptop is one of the B&O line with a non-removable battery. Do I need to claim on the warranty and replace or is there an easy fix? ThanksWill

Can anyone help?

For the past month or so every time I am in the middle of doing something - usually on the Internet - the cursor stops moving and nothing happens when I press the Winkey or CTRL+ALT+DELETE.

I've done several system scans but found nothing. The mouse is built in and not a USB mouse and I am using Vista Home Premium on a Del Inspiron 6400.

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

I turned off my notebook using the mouse and the screen menu. The computer apparently closed down as it should, the screen went black, but the light on the power switch continues to glow. When I try to turn on the computer again, the power switch has become unresponsive. Now I can't turn my computer on. (I don't actually know whether the computer is turned on or off because the screen is black). The notebook has a fixed battery, so I can't do a hard reset by removing it. What should I do?

A:Windows 7 64 BSOD on GPU IntelGMA/HD5650 switch - notebook

Hello there, well... i'm not on the BSOD squad but from what i see in the log, the cause of that particular BSOD is the Avira Antivirus and your Graphic Cards...

I also recommend to download the drivers from the manufacturer's website, in your case, go to:

Graphics Drivers & Software

And download the latest drivers for your notebook.

After that, uninstall your current ATI drivers, run Driver Sweeper to remove any leftover from the drivers, reboot and then install the new ones...

A:Acer Aspire Switch 10

You could try resetting it...

1. Remove the battery (if possible) and also the adapter.
2. Press, and hold, the power button for about 20 seconds.
3. Then plug in the power, and see if the laptop will boot and go to the desktop. If it does, then put the battery back in. If it doesn't, try connecting it to an external monitor and see if you can get that to work.

Check first to make sure you have enough room. Some of the models come with a smaller SSD than others and it's not unusual for those to have too little space free. If that is the case try putting an SD card in with enough room, the W10 installer will use that space if needed.

I have an Acer Aspire 9300. I recently installed Windows 7 from scratch, together with the Launch Manager application from Acer (version 2.0.05).

My problem is that when I press the wireless switch, the orange LED goes out, but the green display at the bottom of the screen says "Wireless Lan enabled", and the wireless connects. When I press the wireless switch a second time, the orange LED lights up, but the green display at the bottom of the screen says "Wireless Lan disabled", and the wireless disconnects.

Does anyone have any ideas please?

mexcracker,
 
You can access the OSD and set your monitor to search for the HDMI (digital) connection and see if that works.
 
You can also try this:

Control Panel
Power Options
Changed advanced power settings
Scroll down and expand PCI Express
Expand Link state power management
Turn both to off

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 that get's really hot after using it for a while - 30 -45 minutes I'd say. You can feel the heat by touching the bottom left below the keyboard - or touching the bottom of the laptop which can be scolding hot.

Is there anyway to get this to cool down? I feel like this isn't normal.

 Hello and HELP !!                            Is there anybody with any idea on how to get past the password lock screen on the above computer ? Nothing sinister - just a forgotten password.

A:ACER ASPIRE SWITCH 10 - Password problems

You have several options... Do you have another user logon on this laptop?  If yes, log on with that user, then create a new account for your wife, and copy over the data from the old user to the new account. If no other user, then either find someone with Microsoft DaRT software which includes an option to reset the password, or you will have to do a complete restore back to manufacturer's defaults.  Think you get to that by holding the <Alt> key then hit <F10> key whilst machine is booting up immediately after switch on. Hope that helps...

Hi guys,

Acer Aspire 3410, initial problem with black screen of death (completely blank). Reflashed/updated BIOS to 1.28, which corrected error but revealed non-functional backlight (very dim image).

I dismantled the monitor to check all connections (fine) then connected a voltmeter across the earth and +ve on the inverter board to check if it was delivering power. Computer immediately shutdown () and now won't start.

I've tried resetting the CMOS by removing the battery + ac power, holding the "on" button for 30s then refitting battery + ac power with no success. I've also removed the circular battery located next to the RAM accessible via the RAM access panel on the underside. Still nothing.

Any suggestions?

I put the system CD in and booted. Essentially the same thing happens, tho I can hear the drive working. Ditto when I try disk 1 of the Recovery CD.

I tried following instructions to hit the F2 key, but nothing happens.

So a problem occured in which I had to completely reinstall the OS on an aspire switch. I installed a clean copy of windows 10 (via usb) Upon completion I was missing drivers for several pieces of hardware, Checking the driver section of support yielded no useful results. obviously it's way out of warranty, backup media wasn't created, etc. (this was a 2in1 belonging to a relative) anyway, I kind of need to be able to get the drivers that i'm missing as one of the ones that didn't install was the audio drivers for the built in speakers. Beyond that the built in microphone isn't registering, and neither is the brightness sensor. However eight different devices are coming up with "Unknown Device" and the PCI Encryption/Decryption controller is also reporting that the drivers for it are not installed. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Hello,
My client's son has an Acer Travelmate 250 with a display issue. When you turn it on, all you can see is a white background with lines sporatically flashing like it is trying to display something but no images are showing. If I apply a little pressure to close the display but not so much to actually move it at the hinges, the display works perfectly. Is there an easy fix for this besides pushing it against something on the desk to apply a little pressure?
Thanks in advance,

I have the Acer 5570z and it came stock with 1GB of memory, and I did my research and the User Guide says it can take up to 4GB using two soDIMM modules (dual channel support) so I bought a 4GB pack (2 2GB sticks) of memory by corsair with matching specs and speed of memory that came stock with the PC (DDR2 PC2-5300). But when I installed both memory sticks, my PC turned on just fine, but did not load anything, the screen just stayed black. But when I removed one of the sticks of memory, the PC started up and booted the OS. I've tried everything I could to get 4GB out of this PC, but I'm thinking this PC can't handle 4GB of memory, but then why would the User Guide say it can?

Hello everybody. This seems like an excellent board, and I thank you for all your help.

I have an Acer Aspire 1681LCi with 512MB PC2700 (2x256) 200pin Sodimms. The CPU is the Centrino Pentium M 1.5Ghz supposedly with 400MHz FSB (4x100). I would like to add more RAM to it, but have three questions:

1. Should I just add more DDR333 or replace it all with DDR400?
2. Should there be a performance benefit to this?
3. Why would Acer install DDR333 into a 400MHz FSB?

Any suggestions would be helpful on this matter.
Thanks!

no performance benefits at all since you can't overclock a notebook. Just get the speed you are supposed to get (DDR2700 probably since you're using that already) or whatever is closest...

A:Acer Aspire One Notebook Keeps Restarting

The STOP message is UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME This could mean that your boot file is corrupted or it could mean your HDD has died.
Boot off of the XP CD and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors. If this fails, chances are great that the Hard Drive has died and needs to be replaced.

When I install Windows 7 the instructions say that I will lose my installed programs. If I use the backup image to re-install the programmes, the backup image CD reinstalls Windows Vista. How can I get around this???

The installed programmes that came with my Acer notebook are copied onto the Acer backup image DVD.

Thank you for your help in advance

If you choose the "upgrade", it should carry forward all your programs, and personal data. Only if you choose "Custom" will you lose your programs.

I recently bought this new notebook that came preloaded with Vista that you had to buy a license to activate it. I already had a new copy of xp pro so I installed that system. I was able to download all the drivers that I needed for xp from their web site. The only problem is that I cannot get the computer the install the ethernet controller drivers. I often have this kind of problem with my other computers, just not very knowledgeable on that sort of thing. Any helpfun hints would be greatly appreaciated.

I had a hard time finding the driver, or rather one that worked. If you send me your email address I will forward it to you. I don't remember where I found it otherwise I would send you the link. I just wish ACER was like Dell and would send a restore disk with all the drivers. I'm having problems downloading the drivers I need from their site. My CD Rom just stopped working AGAIN .... Have a good one.

Good day all,
I just bought an acer extensa 5220 notebook (XP Pro). I have not used it yet for work. It had Norton Internet security (trial version) installed. I prefer to use McAfee AV. I installed McAfee and restarted my notebook. However, i did not uninstall Norton. When notebook started up again it restarted after startup, it kept doing this over again, first showing blue screen before restarting (but too fast so i couldn't read the error message). So, i booted into safe mode and restored back to the time before McAfee was installed. It is stable for now.
My questions are:
Do you think my problem was because of not uninstalling Norton first?
Was i correct in using system restore (what are the repercussions if not)?
Does my notebook model support McAfee AV or was i wrong to try to install it and should stick with Norton?

I am grateful for any help. Thank you

i'm now using my cousin's notebook (acer travelmate 345T).

it seems old and slow... and low in specs.

what i like though about this notebook is it's slim and really small compared to other new notebooks and is handy too... and of course, it has "SENTIMENTAL VALUE".

is there a way that i could upgrade the hardware of this notebook so it can work much better?

tips greatly appreciated. thank you.

Not substantially. Depending on how much memory it has, you may be able to improve performance by adding memory.

Acer Aspire 5516
This is a report on upgrading from Vista Home Basic to Windows 7 Home Premium.
I didn't do a Clean Install as I was worried about drivers, etc.. It turns out that everything went smoothly except for the graphics card driver. (Radeon 1200)
What I found out was that the default video driver was unacceptable, but I figured out what was needed. I couldn't find a good driver for it on the ATI web site. The Catalyst Control Center which is ~69MB did not work. Eventually I went to the Acer web site (us.acer.com) and found a Catalyst download that is 109MB. This is the one that works.

Everything now works properly.

Except I defragged with Defraggler and it couldn't get rid of all the fragmented file and there is a separate section that Defraggler doesn't even touch that Windows Defrag calls PQ*something. That is for a new post though.

A:Acer Aspire 5516 Notebook

The Win7 installer is amazingly driver-complete, with some exceptions.

Check first for newer drivers from optional Windows Updates.

Next check the Acer website, then the actual device maker.

Hello!

Acer Aspire 5536 won't display anything,no sound,no lights,no image,only a black screen.The laptop is powering on and cranking since I hear the fan and the cd rom open and closes.I made some tests by hooking the laptop to an external monitor with no success.Did a power reset with no success and tried almost anything on the net to find a solution to this. You are my last resort before I trash this pc.
Please help! your suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Hi Forum-ers.
I'm having problems getting my Notebook to boot from the 7 image. I want to load 7 over Vista, which runs like a dog with one leg. I used this DVD to load 32bit 7 on my desktop, so I know it is OK, but the Acer won't "see" the boot disk at start-up.
I have set the bios to CD/DVD drive, 1st boot position and "Unlocked" the Acer eLock Management tool for the DVD drive in Vista, but Vista loads as if no DVD is in the drive.
I spoke to the shop where I purchased the Acer, but they said use f10 on start-up, but it just sends me to Edit Boot Options for Vista.
Does anyone have a solution, please?

A:How to install 7 on Acer 5620Z notebook?

No need to boot from the dvd just run the setup from within windows, and if it still does not see the dvd then extract the contents of the disc and run the setup.

Hello jrdngreenberg3 and welcome to Seven Forums.

According to the Acer download link below, the latest BIOS version for your machine is 1.07. You can double check that by selecting notebook > Aspire > 5733z and then clicking the BIOS tab.

Download

There seems to be quite a few theads on this forum concerning wake-on-lan problems. Perhaps one of those other theads will offer you a solution. Also, have you checked your power plan settings?

Dear community,

I'm getting some random BSOD's lately or my laptop freezes so I have to do a 'hard' reboot. I'm unable to pinpoint what change in my system started to cause the problem but maybe it is after I installed a SSD. But this may well be co?ncidence.

I am able to log on and use the laptop but sometimes after a while the laptop freezes or reboots with error code 0x0000000a. The faulty driver differs: ntkrnlpa.exe, ndis.sys and NETIO.sys.

I have ran a Windows Memory Diagnostic for 20-30 minutes and it foutnd no errors in RAM.
I hope you guys can tell me what causes the crashes. Hopefully it is an software issue and easy to fix.

Thanks up front!

Hi Guys,

I have a Notebook with the Operating System - Vista. The Machine is an Intel Celeron 1.6 Mhz and runs with 1.0 Gb Ram. We have used this Operating System for some and now need to install the Windows XP Operating system, since it is User Friendly. Infact, we have downloaded the Drivers too. However, when we tried to install the WinXP Operating System, there was an error at the Time of Loading the System of restarting Computer as follows.

'Windows setup could not detect any Hard drives installed in your System'. etc

Infact, the Hard drives are all installed and working very well with the VIsta Operating System. Could anyone let me know how to configure it, so that I could install the WinXP Operating System onto this Machine.

Your Help would be much Appreciated. THanks

Hi, I have a brand new Acer VN7592G77LB laptop and since day one I have the following problem:If I have the laptop powered on it won't charge from the power plug and it will use the battery instead.But if the notebook is powered off the charging LED indicates that the battery is charging and when I boot up the battery is charged. Something is wrong with the power bypass in the laptop I think because is not a software problem (I tested it in Windows 10, Linux Mint and in the BIOS).¿Anyone know what is happening? ¿I need to send the laptop for warranty?Thanks a lot.

I confess I'm Mac user and helpless when it comes to assisting my son overcome his nonchalance with technical matters. He bought a very small Acer Aspire notebook with a dinky 8.9" screen. It wouldn't be my cup of tea, but he loves it. I was staggered when I learned that there is no software with it ? no OS disks. I believe it came loaded with the XP and it's his responsibility to make his own disks using an external drive to clone his system. Frankly I don't understand any of this, but I would be enormously grateful for advice on how he should proceed to fulfill his responsibility. Thank you up front.

A:Cloning Acer Aspire 8.9" notebook

It probably has a restore partition on it. When you boot up it should say something about hit this F key to restore or something, usually the F11 key. You can also make your own Restore CD's using the computer manufactures included utility.
