Q: Solved: Acer Aspire 5920G Acer Arcade Button

Previously, this button would open Windows Media Center when pressed. Though it has stopped doing that and don't know why. How can I fix this?
All the other Mediatouch keys are working fine.

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.)

I'm having a little problem with the MediaTouch buttons on my Acer Aspire 5920G..
Here is a picture of the laptop itself:
Now, If you look to the bottom right of the laptop, You'll notice play/stop/forward skip, rewind skip buttons aswell as a button that looks like it can be pushed but can't... lol okay, well When I touch any of those buttons while playing a song in Windows Media Player, Nothing happens.. It's as if they are not responding but the lights are on!
The only button that does work on that side is the top one, which lauches Acer Arcade Deluxe.

I've never had a problem with something like this until now.

Please help me in any way possible.. Thanks

Hi guys

I'm hoping you can help me with a annoying problem....

About 4 years ago i bought this Acer Aspire 5920g with Vista as the OS..
Back then i didn't like it, so i switched to XP.. Then Win7 came and i got that on board.

Now, i'm a sucker for reinstalling the OS, when i feel my comp is getting slower and always with a good result, when installing the drivers... Until now...

Now, when i try to install my gfx driver (It's an nVidia Geforce 8600GT) it goes bananas and ends up in a 256 color 640x480 resolution.....

I've tried and tried and asked friends, but no one can help me, so i'm trying you guys now......

WTF to do? :S

Thanks in advance

test the hard with the drive maker's own diagnostic software for DOS which loads from a bootable CD. The links are here: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm...The download is usually in the form of a "CD Image" ISO file.Create a CD from that file using IMGBURN: http://www.filehippo.com/download_i...Then boot your faulty laptop from that CD.If the hard drive passes the long/extended test, consider performing a Factory Recovery but only if you already have backups of your data because FR will overwrite all data on the C partition and possibly other partitions too.

Does this happens only within Windows, or with any other OS installed? because that could be a hardware's fault.

It doesn't seem google sees them when searching, probably because the site is so flash heavy.

Most likeley, your wirless card needs to be replaced.  Sometimes you can get lucky by removing the wirless card, restarting the computer, then shutting down the computer and physically reinstalling the card again.  In most cases, when you cannot control a wireless card's ability to turn on an off, it usually means the wifi card is a dud. In your case, removing/replacing the card on the 4520 is pretty easy compared to most machines.  Watch this youtube video from the :18 second mark through the first 30 seconds.  That's all the time it took for the person disassembling the laptop to remove the card.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yucUQbEiNXg Also note, it looks like in most cases, the 4520 machine came with a full size b/g mini pci wifi card.  I believe the s/n is T60H976.  I would recommend throwing in just about any Atheros half size mini pci wireless card with wireless N capabilities (huge performance increase for a minimal amount of cost, assuming your router supports wireless N).  Just keep in mind if you throw in a half size card, you will also need to get a half size bracket extension so that the half size card can fit the full size slot on your computer.  It can all easily be done with about $10-$20 in parts on ebay, and will give your computer much better wireless performance.  I recommend going with another Atheros card because sometimes manufacturues will not whitelist or recognize other manufacturer cards on their chipsets.  Never had a problem going from Atheros to Atheros on an Acer, although some people may claim other wifi cards will work. Goog luck.

The left click button on the touchpad of my Acer Aspire One Netbook recently stopped working properly. It won't let me click ( except sometimes after pressing the button repeatedly), and when it does, it highlights everything on the page and drags the links I try to click. I can't get it out of drag mode, and trying to use the scroll bar is hell because it won't stop scrolling. I think the left click button is stuck.

I've had the computer for three years, and up until a few weeks ago, I'd never had this problem. I don't want to send it back to Acer or buy any new parts. Is there any solution to this problem?

A:Left Click Button Not Working on Acer Aspire One

Boot into Setup (Bios) go to Integrated Peripherals and see if Touch Pad is disabled, if so, using your arrow key Enable it. Save and Exit. (it probably is already enabled)
Go to the Acer Driver page Acer | Download find your model and download the Touch Pad Driver.
Go to the Control Panel/Mouse (or touchpad) and adjust the sensitivity.

I think the power switch/button on my desktop Acer Aspire X3400G is not working intermittently. The computer began not starting after pushing on the power button. It would begin to start then blue light would go out but the PSU fan would continue to run. I would unplug the power coard and plug it back in and the computer would start and run just fine. I replaced the PSU but now it is still not starting intermittently. I am looking for a new switch but can only find this one on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Power-...ultDomain_0&hash=item20dd89eddd#ht_1000wt_900)
Does anyone know where I can get a new switch for this?

Hi,
My acer aspire 5920 wireless button is not working. It is not getting switched on.
I am using windows xp.
Is there any driver issue or something else?
need some real help.
 

A:Acer aspire 5920 wireless button not working

This could be a hardware problem. But I guess it could be a driver issue, but hardware would be more likely.

First go here:
- Click the Start icon in the bottom left hand corner
- Right click on my computer and select manage
- On the left hand side, find device manager and go to it
- Do you see any yellow exclamations or red x's?

Now, I am assuming your wireless is not working? Can you get internet when you plug a cable from the router into the computer?

If your wireless is not working, I am assuming it is turned off and you are trying to use the wireless button to turn it back on. There are other ways to turn on the wireless besides using the button.
- Go to the start icon in the bottom left hand corner
- Select control panel
- Select Network and Internet Connections
- If you don't see this, on the left hand side select Switch to Category View
- After network and internet connections, select network connections
- You should now be able to see some network interfaces
- For your wireless one, right click it and select enable
- Wireless should now be on.

Evening all,

Just bought the above mentioned "acer aspire 5735z" about 1 hour ago. Straight away we noticed that the volume bar on the main screen remains on. When ever we turn the volume down using the physical volume buttons it returns to full volume. This is also true for the volume control in the toolbar.

Im thinking Factory Fault (broken button) but just incase there is something that we are missing perhaps in property settings? Anyone add anything else ?

All views and replies appreciated!

I have just purchased a used Acer Aspire and the middle mouse mouse button Acer working scroll Aspire 5630 not key is not working It is a four-way mouse key that I think is supposed to be used for mouse scroll especially as there is no scroll-margin on the touchpad and sliding my finger down the right side of the pad doesn t do anything I had initially installed windows on this computer as soon as i got it but due to these problems i reinstalled vista believing it may be Acer Aspire 5630 mouse scroll button not working a driver incompatibility issue This turned out not to be the case as it doesn t work in vista Acer Aspire 5630 mouse scroll button not working either I opened up the casing to expose the actual buttons beneath and there is no visible trauma and the upper keys make good contact with the inner buttons All the buttons both left and right buttons as well as the four scroll keys are all on the same board which makes me believe this has got to be a driver option But I m open to any suggestions or ideas Can anybody help me make this work I really like this computer and would love to have it functioning completely Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks at least for reading this nbsp

A:Wireless Button no longer works - Acer Aspire 5920

Hello CluelessAcer

Have a look here Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / Aspire / Aspire 5920 I have a few models up from you and those buttons are controlled by the Launch Manager Application at the bottom of the page. You should also be able to find any missing drivers/applications here.

Hi,

I've been having this problem for some time now (more or less since I've installed win7 beta), but it's getting worse.

I get BSODs with different messages, inluding:
- ntfs.sys
- atapi.sys (or something like this)
- there was another one, relating to volume manager... can't remember exactly
- lots of generic STOP with no driver details

I think the problem is somewhere in IO stack. I can more or less replicate BSOD by intensive disk IO tasks (compiling, running virus scans...). Unfortunately, since IO dies, minidumps are NOT written.

Where do I start? How do I debug this? I've ran clamav and it found no virueses and it did NOT crash my system (so I guess HW is ok). I'll try scanning for rootkits from a livecd (if i find one). Windows rootkit detectors just crash the machine (high IO).

Ideas?

Hello everyone! First post here so be nice

I recently bought a new screen for my acer aspire 5920g to upgrade the 1280x800 supplied screen. The new screen is WSXGA (1650x900), I've managed to get to the point of exchanging the screens however it seems as though acer only have wired up half the LCD cable. Now, I thought no problem, i'll wire the rest up myself. The only issue is that i'm not sure it is possible, there are not another 8 connections on the motherboard plug to wire up...... does anyone know if this is possible?
 

A:Acer 5920G LCD upgrade

I would say no, it is not possible. The LCD screens are always matched up with the motherboard type and video pinouts

My Acer 5920g Laptop WILL NOT charge,

I just received it back from Acer and they said there is no fault. I have 3 different AC adapters (none of which will charge) and two batteries (neither of which will charge). I thought it may have been the plug at the back of the laptop but they say that it is working. I only have a few months left on my extended warranty.

I have wiggled the cord, I have bought new a new battery (which worked until it ran out of charge), two new chargers (one of which worked for one day, the other not at all) and sent it to the manufacturer. The OS is Vista.

Can someone please give me some idea what to do next? I have seen external laptop chargers, but I'm worried it will just be another waste of money. HELP!!!

Hey,

Since I changed my default laptop 2x 1gb ram to 2x2gb from kingston I get random bluescreens, sometimes in the first seconds watching a vid with vlc, sometimes when I haven't touch the laptop and start moving the mouse, and some other situations. 9 hour memtest shows no errors, haven't tried them separately.
Going back to my old ram (which was fine before) is not an option, since it makes starting 32 bit programs impossible (something about syswow64). BIOS update won't work while in w7 & the boot cd's I made keep loading..

I'm up to date with Acer's w7 64 bit drivers..

Specs:
Acer Aspire 5920G-302G16N
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile T7300 (2.0 GHz)
Intel Crestline-PM PM965
Kingston 4GB DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM (New)
1GB Intel Turbo Memory
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT TurboCache

Hi and welcome

With only one BSOD and very little info in it. I am going to have to be more general than I would like. This kind of crash can be caused by three things. Hardware (incompatible or bad), Software (the OS or other), and memory.
Since you have already run memtestx86 I would start by upgrading the drivers listed below. They are 3 years old and I suspect you didnt do a clean install whan you upgraded to win 7

Run a system file check to verify and repair your systems files. You may need to run it more than once. Run it untill the replort generated says no errors found.

If you are overclocking STOP
If you have a raud update its driver.

I suspect this isnt going to be pinpointed until more bsod's occur.

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.

i need a very quick reply please

A:slow startup on acer 5920G laptop

Hi,

Have you choosen what your computer starts up?
(Start >> Run >> Msconfig >> Startup and then deselect what you do not want to start up) but dont disable your firewall and Anti Virus.

Have you ran chkdsk
(Start >> Run >> cmd >> chkdsk if it comes up with convert lost chains press Y for yes)

Have you scanned for spyware, ad-aware and malware?
(I would use AVG Anti Spyware Plus Here is a quick link AVG ANTI SPYWARE PLUS

See if that makes any difference.

I restarted my computer like normal and for whatever reason the computer is now stuck at the Acer boot screen. I try to press DEL to enter Setup and I even tried pressing F12 to go into the Boot Setup, but for whatever reason the computer does not respond to anything.

To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.

Stuff to know:
- I have a wireless mouse and keyboard being used on that desktop.. Should I perhaps try to plug in a corded mouse and keyboard?
- I'm running on Windows 7 Ultimate.
Thanks

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

My system is roughly months old I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to home premium There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to Acer M3203 Windows software Acer's upgrade and Aspire 7 deep hibernation The only way to wake it was to unplug Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software the power from the tower I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers to finally reinstalling everything No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer I just got it back from Acer's repair depot They had to replace the motherboard hard drive and fans on the system They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold the hibernation thing started again It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory Now it seems stable running Vista I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell Is it me or is Acer systems flakey Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows without having to format every week I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly Sometimes it won't even turn on Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

Try booting to Memtest86 you can burn a CD and I think it can also be run from a USB bootable flash drive. This will test your memory for problems and also let you know that the hardware in general will run (except the hard drive which is ignored at this stage.If the memory is good, then boot to your hard drive mfg's utility or Seatools from Seagate (DOS version) the same as Memtest but it tests your hard drive to see if it is just the drive that you cannot install on.If the memory and hard drive tests OK then you may just need to delete all current partitions on the hard drive before trying to install.If the memory does not test good, try cleaning the contacts on the memory with a soft pencil eraser and snapping them in and out 5 or 6 times to also burnish the slot's contacts. Then try memtest again on one stick at a time in case one stick is bad, swap and try again.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

To start off, this laptop has been horrible since the day I got it. I can't even believe how slow it is; it lags doing even the simplest tasks.That aside; I was prompted to update an AMD Catalyst Radeon (something like that) software, so I did. The screen went black and nothing happened for almost 10 hours.I eventually decided to turn off the power. Now that I turn it back on it's just stuck on "Acer explore beyond limits" screen.It has been like this for days now. I've tried turning it on and off again several times. It's just stuck at that screen.What do I do? How do I fix this? I need this computer for school.

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating.

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

I finally found a soluation after months of wondering why this is happening. It's my Virgin Media connection, the modem/router as when I connected to my phones wifi, teethering, Acer Care Center instantly updated so something within Virgin Medias network is blocking connectivity. I did try the Virgin Media's router as cause by diabling firewall etc. but with no joy I gave up but didn't try another connection until just now with tethering where as stated problem is sorted. I will report this to Virgin Media and post back anything relevant to this.

acer arcade deluxe is installed on my laptop and when watching digital tv no matter the hardware tv tuner, most channels have subtitles that can not be turned off.
acer arcade is a donkey program if u change tv channels quickly arcade freezes and when u close media center and restart media center the tv will not work again until u restart the computer.
i tryed uninstalling arcade but vista media center will not reconise the tv tuners at all, i want to use the vista media center software only.

acer only gives u a partition with vista on it to recover from as i would like aclean install of vista without all the acer junk.

if i used an other vista ultimate dvd from an other machine and formatted my hard drive would my key work on the bottom of the computer when activating with microsoft.

I have never heard of a motherboard going bad after a year and a half. Anyway, is it worth replacing? I have looked around and they aren't cheap. I have never had a motherboard fry and I have had quite a few computers. One of my computers is 6 years old and still going strong. Of course the Acer was my newest computer and I loved it because it was a notebook with a huge screen. I am not happy...

A:Solved: Acer Aspire 1650

According to the downloads site for the Acer Aspire 1650 laptop, it has downloads for these devices and applications:

Devices:

Chipset
Audio
Bluetooth
Card Reader
LAN (wired ethernet)
Modem
Touchpad
VGA (graphics)
Wireless LAN

Acer Applications:

GridVista
eNet
ePower
LaunchManager
NB Manager

You need to download and save and then burn off the drivers and applications to 2 separate CD-R's.

The chipset driver should be installed first and then the computer restarted before installing any other drivers.

Once the necessary drivers have been installed and you've confirmed in the Device Manager that the necessary devices are working, you can install the necessary applications.

I have a acer aspire celeron,and for the last few weeks it has been running really slow, and there are always lots of processes running on the CPU. My husband added some more RAM to the compuer on Thurs, and it was running faster that night. I shut it down as usual, but then yesterday whenI switched it on, the hard drive wouldn't boot up. It comes up to a screen that says acer in the middle, and at the bottom has the choices:
Press TAB to show POST screen, DEL to enter SETUP, F12 to Enter Boot Menu
Only none of these things work. I have tried them all and nothing happens.

hello.
I bought computer from circuit city, is was refurbished.. with it came 2 recovery disc and 1 disc that says drivers & apps.. I want to do a full recovery on it because of programs working slow and some not working..
I can not use the sytem restore point on my pc, when I try it says unable to perform restore..
my question is, do I run the disc that says drivers&apps first or the sytem recovery disk first?
the comp is less than a year old..

I have come to upgrade my pc by adding a new Graphics card and Memory as i have done in the past on countless occassions with other pc's however this time i cant even open the case i remove the 2 screws and it looks as if it should just slide back but dosent matter what i do it wont move can anybody tell me if i am missing something so simple here
 

A:Solved: Acer Aspire T671

Sometimes they are difficult to remove the first few times, you may need to use the open palm of you hand, hit the side cover in a glancing blow in the direction toward the rear of the case a few times.

Acer provides no documents other than to say to remove the chassis screws, then remove the panel, no pics.

Hello Guys! I want some help regarding my laptop model Acer Aspire E1-410, because there's no other option in BIOS only UEFI instead of LEGACY and it defaults to LINUX. My problem is how can install windows in UEFI is there other way to process windows setup? can i change UEFI to LEGACY and how to do it sir? And ACER technician also said that i can used UEFI format of Windows, is there any resources that i can download in the internet?Thanks for the support..

A:[SOLVED] Acer Aspire E1-410 can't windows

Even though you don't have Legacy is CSM boot mode shown? If so disable the Secure Boot option. Then in Advanced set Boot Mode to CSM boot. If no choices, explain choices with Linux vs, Windows as to 1st, 2nd.

Okay i just installed a win 7 to my laptop which was previously running win vista... so after running the updates... i realise that theres one hardware which is no driver available which is the mass storage device and im not sure what storage device is meant... i try to run the update hardware driver to no avail.. can somebody help me find what is wrong here? other hardware works fine..

A:[SOLVED] Acer Aspire 4920G

Have you looked in your device manager? Anything without a proper driver will be marked with a yellow exclamation point or a red X. That might help narrow it down. A mass storage device usually refers to a hard drive or flash drive.

A:Solved: Acer Aspire CD/DVD Combo faulty

This is asmuch info as I could track down.
Manual.
The drive is a standard slim drive,so you could put a DVD-RW drive in there
if you want.
The problem is that it is integrated,so the laptop will have to come apart to install it.
If you don't want to do that,buy a slim drive in a usb case and it will power from
the USB bus.

Modem device on high definition audio bus

Acer's site does not have drivers available for XP on this particular model. Is anyone able to help out with this?

Thanks very much.

Open the Device Manager

In XP the VEN_ #### and DEV_ #### is located under Device Instance ID
