Q: acer aspire 5680 windows 7 issues

I have recently installed windows 7 professional on an acer aspire 5680 and having a few problems regarding updating drivers for a few devices (orbicam, touchpad, realtek audio etc.)

Since acer doesn't offer windows 7 compatible drivers for this model, I was wondering if anyone has had similiar problems and found some sort of viable solution(s). Thanks

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have acer aspire 5515 and just used the original ones that were intended for vista for the web cam. Many of the others (touchpad. hotkeys, display/audio) downloaded automatically from Microsoft via windows update upon installation once I had internet.

I'm looking for a driver for built-in Logitech webcam Acer Aspire 5680. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate.

I've tried this: Acer Support - Drivers & Download
Acer doesn't seem to have drivers for Windows 7. The XP/Vista drivers do not work. Windows 7 cannot find the webcam.

Any ideas, folks?

A:Logitech webcam driver for Acer Aspire 5680

I have a different Aspire model but I found that Windows 7 already supported the web cam. It just doesn't have any software to make use of it.

Click on start, then right click on computer, then properties, then click on device manager (top left). Click next to imaging devices and see if there is "USB Video Device" or something similar. If it's there, yu just need some software to use your camera. You can try this out:

Yawcam - Yet Another Webcam Software

You'll need the Javascript runtime environment. If you don't have it, the installer offers to take you to the web page. Once you have Jave runtime installed, you can go back and install Yawcam. It's not hard to figure out, but you'll have to tell it what device you want it to use. I think you have to do it every time, but I haven't played much with it yet. There are other free web cam programs available also. This is just one that I tried to use with the camera to see if it was working.

I have upgraded my aspire 5680 (latest bios 3.60) with a intel 7260AC wifi pcie card (win7 ultimate). The card is recognized by windows and the drivers are installed without problems. The network control center shows the adapter as enabled, BUT the slider button (in the front of the laptop) is dead. So the wifi is deactivated and no networks can been detected.Probably a BIOS issue. When i turn on the appropriate bit in the EC controler (via special software), the wifi LED goes on and the slider button works fine. The WiFi is enabled and all works fine. But this solution is only a work around. I would appreciate any ideas, how the BIOS can be modified to recognize the card.

Hi all I decided to register in this community in order to get some advice and opinion about issues I'm experiencing with this laptop I'm an owner of an Acer Aspire ES - which I ES1-111 Acer aspire issues bought a week ago nbsp Since its first configuration I noticed problems using it with windows its native OS For example touchpad or keyboard not working properly and most of all shutdown problems In this particular case I was never able to shutdown properly the device because it Acer aspire ES1-111 issues either freezed or remained with the power indicator that continued being on although it seemed that Acer aspire ES1-111 issues the system was shutdown However in order to really shutdown I had to press power button nbsp Firstly I decided to reset the system with the integrated software eRecovery but problems remained nbsp Secondly nbsp I decided to do a clean install of the operating system and I tried both Windows and Windows In both cases installation process finished without problems but when trying installing all drivers I experienced freezes and again shutdown problems I followed an order to install drivers Chipset first than VGA etc but in most of cases I had the aformentioned issues I also tried disabling Turn on fast startup recommended to no avail nbsp nbsp But now comes the strange part nbsp I finally decided to give a try to Windows and to my surprise everything is working fine I was nbsp able to install drivers properly and to shutdown or restart my notebook without problems Now I'm using it with Windows but as it is in warranty I would like to ask you what do you think about this issues nbsp nbsp I find quite strange that a notebook isn't working properly with its native OS but it's fine with an old OS Do you think I should send it to Acer assistance or ask to change it although I don't know if I'm still able to pursue nbsp this second option nbsp Thanks for your attention nbsp Mic nbsp nbsp Solved Go to Solution

A:Acer aspire ES1-111 issues

I think I found the reason why I was unable to run Windows 8.1 smoothly after a fresh installation. I was trying to install it while setting Bios in LEGACY mode, which is good for OS prior to Windows 8 (like Windows 7, as it was working perfectly) but not for Windows 8/8.1 as it probably cause some issue when installing drivers etc. So I decided to reset Bios to its original UEFI mode. That was the right decision. Not only touchpad was recognized well during the loading of the bootable usb stick (expecially since Touchpad was set on "advanced", which, in legacy mode, would not work at all) but also because, when OS installation process was completed, I was able to install all hardware drivers properly and shutdown/reboot operations were fully working without issues/freezes and so on. Hope this information comes useful for other users.

Have you installed SP1 and Sp2 and subsequent updates?

Since the CD lights come one and then nothing afterwards, it sounds like a hard drive problem. I'm assuming the CD drive is the first boot device in the BIOS.

I'm having a few issues with my laptop. I'm running Windows 8.1. Can someone please help me figure things out? 1.) Can't access Acer Explorer, says there's no program that can open it!! what?!2.) Keeps randomly shutting down. Yes I've run my virus program and made sure the fans running and clean. Still, however gets hot, so I'm wondering if I might need to replace the fan. How can I know for sure?3.) Keeps telling me I need to update or install the flash player but when I do, it says I have the most updated version.4.) Can play and hear music played by my media player, but when I try to burn the file to a disc it says either to install cd/dvd burner or the format is wrong. I have a cd/dvd burner installed and it works just great except when I download music from the internet and try burning them to a cd.

Hi there,

I have the Acer Aspire 5742 series laptop and I am suffering from overheating issues - temperatures are staying around the 60C mark with just google chrome open, on idle it doesn't go below 50C, when doing anything intensive it goes up to 70C+, sometimes even 90C+. I cannot run a virus scan with McAfee because it just overheats the laptop.

I've got some arctic silver 5 thermal paste (left over from when I did a fix on a Packard Bell machine) and am thinking about replacing the fan - how easy is it to replace the fan and heatsink? Is this worth it and will it fix the overheating issue?

Furthermore, is there anything else I can do to fix the overheating? I want to be able to cure this overheating problem once and for all. Thanks for your help.

A:Acer Aspire 5742 Overheating issues

First thing you should do is get rid of both Mcafee and Chrome and see how it runs,

As far as remodeling a laptop that depends on your skills
If it has a ssd in it or not that would be another thing to do which will cut down on heat and of course speed the sucker up a lot

After Mcafee and Chrome are gone do this for us,
Also make sure you use the Mcafee removal tool
How to uninstall or re-install supported McAfee products using the Consumer Products Removal tool

Go to the Services section and on the bottom left Check the box to Hide All Microsoft services,

You definitely do NOT need to purchase a new operating system.

You can legitimately download a Windows 7 ISO, burn it to a DVD, install it and then activate it using the product key on the COA sticker affixed beneath the laptop.

Follow the instructions here to do that - it provides a link to download the Windows 7 ISO, and all the steps you need to perform. Read it thoroughly before starting.

If your daughter still has files on this computer that haven't been backed-up, then use this to copy them off the laptop before re installing Windows 7.

Hi all: I have a problem with my laptop (model VN7-571G). After a recent Windows 10 update, now I am not able to connect the laptop to my flat  LG TV via HDMI. I think it has to be related to Intel Graphics 5500 (current driver When I connect the laptop to my flat TV, laptop screen goes black but TV message says "Without Conection". The HD Intel Graphic Control Panel only detects laptop screen. When I connect TV to HDMI port recognizes it for half a second, and then TV is not detected again. I cannot install Intel Drivers as I have to go to Acer webpage to get driver, which is the last version I already have. Computer was working ok till last update.Do I have to wait to get new driver from Acer when it is ready, or do I format computer and start from zero?. Thanks for your help.

Hi, Of course you can install the latest intel driver from the intel webpage but just with a little bit of tricks. However, I cannot tell you that the latest driver from intel will solve the issue you are experiencing. Download the .zip file from here: Then follow the instructions of jose423, which is marked as a solution from this post: This will install the intel driver even if you have a "custom manufacturer driver".

/ have googled the heck out of this issue and all I've found is a big, heaping, plate of nuth'n.

Additional info - BIOS type = InsydeH20 Setup Utility

Update - found the secure boot toggle in the Boot Menu. I've been overlooking that for hours now...

New issue - cannot boot from USB stick, can boot from itapi dvd rom (however, system hangs)

Our UEFI expert Theog should be along in the morning to advise.

I believe you need to format the USB stick FAT32 only. Theog will know the tool which does this best but you can try it with what you have for now.

Ok, this is a laptop that I had to install Windows XP Professional edition onto. It has issues where sometimes, when the system is left on , it will turn off the monitor/screensaver and not respond when someone comes back to it, requiring a restart.

Also, sometimes the restart will power it on, but it will hang on a black screen.

The last issue is that sometimes, the screen will "warp" into several vertical lines , and stop responding. Any thing i can do that may be causing this?

This is the same laptop , where the speakers refused to work, if anyone remembers that.

Thanks everyone.

This random action could be a failing battery on the Mobo (what looks like a coin). If the unit has some age to it this might be a simple first expense. Batteries do not last forever and some do fail from time to time.

You have to bridge the two connections. You are really better off getting a Hotspot than using your phone as the router. Most phones that can be used as a Hotspot, allow up to five devices to connect to it.

I've been having some weird visual issues while playing games lately. I have an intel driver and an nvidia driver, and if I disable one or the other, the issues seem to stop, but the framerate becomes so low as to be unplayable. The drivers in question are an Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500 and an NVIDIA GeForce 940M. Attached here is one of the more egregious cases. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, disabling one or the other, updating, and nothing seems to work. The only thing I feel like haven't tried that could work so far is a BIOS upgrade/downgrade, and I'd like to save that for a last resort, if possible.

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.

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.

A:Acer aspire with windows 7

Welcome to Techguy cavalier04! In the future, please refrain from posts in all caps. They are really hard to read, and in online etiquette this is the equivalent of shouting. I think that the hard drive in this computer is failing, and I'd start by testing it. You need to download a drive test utility like Drive Fitness Test and make a bootable CD. Once you've done that, boot the suspect computer from the CD and run a full test, and report the results.

If you don't know how to burn a disk image, the procedure will depend on what OS and/or burning software you have installed on the computer used to download DFT. So, if you need help with burning a disk image, you'll need to provide info about your version of Windows and any Disk Burning software installed on your computer.

so i followed your guide and get to list disk it says
Disk 0 online 18gb
Disk 1 invalid 299gb
then i cant get any further

A:windows 7 on acer aspire s3

Digging in beyond the published system specs we find that the model does have a 20gb SSD caching ship on the mobo, which would explain the 18gb good disk Diskpart reported: Acer Aspire S3-391 53314G52ADD Replacing the MSATA ssd? - Aspire - Laptop Tech Support That thread actually has the user installing the OS to the SSD which we've helped do on 30gb MSATA but never on one that small - though it obviously can be done.

The hard disk may be failing. Test it with the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan. You can see the HD make by accessing it as shown in Taking apart Acer Aspire S3-391-6497 >> Inside my laptop or googling any serial for it listed in BIOS setup tabs.

If unable to find HD make use Seagate Seatools ISO burned to CD with Windows Image Burner, booted to run the full scan.

If it tests OK then work through the steps to Troubleshoot Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forum

If the disk has failed replace it to do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7. The best upgrade one can do nowadays is an SSD which is lightning fast, faster than buying a high end laptop without one.

Be aware that the Office Starter has been discontinued and we no longer even have access to a legacy download for it. But it can be replaced by free Open Office if you don't have another Office key available.

Windows 7(and Vista) needs more than just 16GB and it won't run properly with 1GB of RAM, you should upgrade your storage and add an additional 1GB of RAM

I've downgraded my netbook - Acer Aspire One 725 from windows 7 to Windows XP SP3.

On Windows 7 it was very very slow and not usable.

On Windows XP the machine works quite fast and is not freezing.
The problem is that there's no SOUND.

The machine has AMD APU C-60 processor, its integrated with AMD Radeon HD 6290.

I've read somewhere that this netbook should have two sound chips, one in Radeon graphic card for HDMI output.

And one integrated in motherboard.

Am I right?

In device manager there is AMD High Definition Audio installed.

I bought a new PC a couple of weeks ago and it came with No windows recovery disc For twelve years I had a Windows XP home addition and over the years I had to either use the discs to recover a driver or had to rewrite the Windows 8.1 Aspire Acer whole thing If I remember maybe twice I went to google and believe it or not I found Acer Aspire Windows 8.1 a Youtube video of a guy unpacking the same PC as I have And I noticed He didnt get a disc either Is this common now where manufacturers dont send recovery disc It also didnt come with any windows or Acer literature all I got was a half page directions on where to plug things into So what are we supposed to do if something goes wrong and we need a backup I looked on the Acer web site and didnt see anything mentioned about it Does anyone know why they dont send recovery discs Never mind I found the soulution Acer doesnt give backup discs its all saved in a hidden file

Hello Poison Ivy2's brother. Yeah I kind of explained all that stuff already if you had a chance to read through this thread.  1. Put her BIOS back to defaults (F9) and then save and exit (F10).2. After you save and exit BIOS, go back in to BIOS and enable the Boot Menu3.  Go to your computer and use RUFUS to create installation media.  (follow instructions I gave you in previous posts)4.  If her computer came with Windows 8.1 w/ Bing, that vanilla Windows 8.1 iso isn't going to work, because it has a special "Bing" key and Microsoft won't activate it (Microsoft won't let you activate the vanilla Windows 8.1).  5. However you can download the Windows 10 iso and use RUFUS for UEFI only install.  Please read through all of my previous posts and links.

Hi everybody!
I apologise for opening once again the same threat but I have a doubt.
I have the original version of windows 7 professional cd and I am almost ready to format my acer aspire 4315, which is now running with xp, and install the windows 7.
However, it seems that the model I have is not compatible with 7.
In the acer website it has no drivers for the windows 7.
What shall I do?
You think that acer will provide drivers soon or that windows 7 include drivers or I shall not install 7

You will be taking a risk. Do you have a backup drive?

If you could please fill in your system specs, we might be able to dig a little deeper for drivers for you.

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.

In particular run a full Disk Check from DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options Command Line, followed by SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail to help work through the other steps in order until if necessary you run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall. You can rescue your files at any time using that step.

my pc was born W8.1 and was updated to W10 a few months ago.2 weeks ago I was prompted to accept a new update of my AMD A6 processor. Apparently I was not succesful and Windows never loaded. I tried many things until I happened to reinstall a previous fixpoint (?). Not the first but the fourth back in time. Apparently the drive with Windows was locked, and I had no idea how I would get further than the frozen Acer logo. However, this time Windows came on.Then yesterday I was informed of two waiting AMD Radeon Crimson updates 16.3.1, and I accepted. However, I am now locked again, and this time I don't have the fixpoint from February any longer, and I am stuck. Aren't AMD or Acer responsible for such damage and how will I fix it? My pc does not have a cd drive and no boot stick.

Vrey frustrating! Have confirmed through multiple installations and roll backs that the trackpad becomes near unusable after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary update on my new Acer Aspire. The trackpad stutters across the screen, and the only resolution is to roll back to pre-Anniversary. I've confirmed with THREE fresh installations. Each time, prior to the Anniversary update, the trackpad is fine. After? NOT fine. In all cases, an external mouse works fine, but some driver is getting messed up with the Anniversary update, and I don't know what to do to fix it!

Hallo Computer wizards,
My computer dropped on the floor and the screen has been destroyed, well i got me a new LCD-Screen and the screen works well and i installed the windows xp version.
So far so good but the touchpad is not working nor when i install an external mouse that doesn't react either, or the dvd drive is not working.
I am not a computer wizard but as far as i do understand most of the drivers are gone, dvd, usb, touchpad maybe the list goes on.
What do i need to do to get this computer back in shape, considering he might not recognise the new drivers due to the not working dvd drives or the usb from where i could upload some new drivers.
Please i need some help!
Many thanks in advance!

When you boot from win7 disk before you start the installation press shift+f10 which brings command prompt and type 'diskpart' and then 'list disk' then clean the disk by selecting it for example... 'select disk 0' then type 'clean' once cleaned set any partitons you want on the win7 install steps and you shouldn't have any problems.

There are a lot of variables here. The easiest place to start is with a power reset. Remove the AC Adpater and Battery, hold the power button down for 20-30 seconds and then reconnect the AC Adapter and try to power the device on. If it still isn't working after that you may want to check the AC Adapter. Finally, you may need to have the device serviced.

Hi, ALT + F10 when pressed at start up should bring up the Acer eRecovery environment.

At the Acer eRecovery screen
Choose the Recovery Actions - select Next.
Choose the Restore option.
There may be two to choose from, System Restore/Recovery - Reinstall Application/Drivers.
Choose System Restore/Recovery.

But all of your data and files will be lost and overwritten.
To try and save any needed data and files use a USB External DVD Drive - similar to one shown here.

Either use the DVD drive to re-install an operating system - or use the Linux Live Cd to find and save needed data and files.
