Acer Aspire 5742 Bluetooth problems...

Q: Acer Aspire 5742 Bluetooth problems...

So I got an Apple bluetooth keyboard through the post today, and was really excited to start using it. However, when trying to add the device by going Start>Devices and Printers>Add a Device, my computer doesn't detect the keyboard at all.

I went into my device manager to see if I could find the problem, but it turns out that there is no bluetooth adapter visible there, nor can I seem to find any drivers on my actual computer. I tried downloading all the bluetooth drivers from the acer website, but none of them seem to do anything...

I'm pretty sure my laptop has bluetooth, as this is what the internet has told me, so I would really appreciate any help at all!

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

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

Quick reply!!! Save your data and restore back to factory. Always have a back up image of your OS on a external drive for next time you have this problem!!

For the past few weeks my computer has been prone to randomly freezing while websites are open and i get the quot not responding quot message at the top of every website and cannot do anything or click anywhere until i hold down the off button and force the machine to turn off and on again and even then it doesn't always work fine when it's back on As of yesterday when i log in the laptop seems to think that the left click button has been pressed and when i move the mouse around it highlights folders on my desktop When i press the left click it brings up what the right click button should Aspire problem! 7/Acer Windows 5742 do whereas the right click button does nothing Whenever i click on icons on the desktop nothing happens and i can't access any programs start menu firefox etc until i press ctrl alt delete and open the task manager Windows 7/Acer Aspire 5742 problem! As soon as task manager is opened and i can see that it is not doing any processes i can use my left click and go on firefox start menu etc However the right click still does nothing I've got AVG Malware Bytes and CCleaner have run several cleanups and defragmenters Nothing has brought up any problems or viruses etc I'm just really starting to run out of ideas of what i can do to sort this out I'd rather not have to back everything up and perform a factory reset If anyone can shed some light onto this problem i'd really appreciate it

Without more information (system specs) we'd be "shooting in the dark".
Might get lucky and hit the target, but maybe not.

One shot in the dark...

If you have a wireless mouse,
and the usb dongle is plugged into a USB3 port (aka Super Speed USB),
(instead of a USB2 port),
this may cause erratic behavior.
I have seen this happen with some Logitech mice.

Have you tried a different mouse?

Your slow internet and your erratic mouse may or may not be related.

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.

Hi,
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

My old acer aspire 5742 is in a very good condition, basicly new, expect one thing, the left hinge is broken. its been broken for a while, over 3 years. this has cracked the case near the off button and when i move the screen toofar back the laptop turns off/ locks. the reason i made this is because i am looking to upgrade, so i was going to sell it and i feel like this hinge is holding me back from the price i am aiming for. any way i can fix this?

To help you understand, what type and size of the battery is required for your laptop, you can check it by removing the battery from the back side of the laptop.- To do this, first of all please make sure you turned off the laptop and the power connections.- Now turn the laptop to the back side and pulled the clips to remove battery, which is the only removable part from the outerside.- Now you can check the specification of the battery and find it online on the manufacturers website.- Your battery is of 4400 mAh Capacity, 6-cell.- Ac adapter input is AC 120/230 V (50/60 Hz). Hope this will help you.

Yesterday when I turned on my laptop windows wouldn't start and launched its error recovery. When I launched the startup recovery it gave me a black screen for 5 minutes, then an Acer desktop screen with nothing on it. The loading light will stay lit up for 5 minutes and turn off without the computer doing anything at all and stay at that screen for hours on end.

Any and all help word be appreciated.

Hello everyone, I purchased an Acer Aspire 5742 Series Laptop . That is an I3 processor.

MY daughter was having problems with it simply turning off. After looking at and running Real Temp and Prime 95, I believed it was simple over heating .

It is under warranty so I took it in for repair, I just picked it up and they said the fan and vents needed cleaning, that is why it is getting hot and shutting down.

Now I re-ran Prime 95 and it still shut down after 1 hour roughly. Real Temp said it was 89 Degrees C.

So is this normal for laptops??? I costume build my PC and it never shuts down on running Prime 95. Even I did overclocked it.

SO what recommendation do you have? I can take it back (warranty) but I do not have the faith they will fix it ! Since I say no BSOD I am not sure any reports will help. It is a Clean windows 7 install.

A:Acer Aspire 5742 Series Laptop Over Heating

Hello Becky -

By design, laptops just aren't as efficient as desktops when it comes to cooling. Components are bunched together in a small space and the fan is usually underpowered and doesn't move a lot of air. Generally speaking, laptops need to be used on a hard, flat surface like a tabletop and not on a pillow, bedspread, or even a lap. Vents and fan will surely be blocked adding to the heat build up. Many people even use a laptop cooling pad to help with air circulation.

Laptop cooler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But there's another consideration that may prompt you to take the laptop back in for warranty service. It's possible that a heat sink or thermal paste was improperly installed during production. No amount of cleaning will correct that kind of problem. Some additional thoughts:

I replaced the DC jack on an Acer today with a new one. When the laptop has the battery in the power LED shows a power source(unfortunately the battery is dead). When I remove the battery and plug in the charger to the new DC jack, no LED. Hitting the power button results in a flash from the power button light and power LED for an instant but no POST or boot. I tried different chargers as I have a few universals laying around so that's not it.....What's the problem?

A:Acer Aspire 5742 no power from dc jack, replaced it, still no power

Maybe not enough power on my acer laptop the charger says the output is 19 volts 3.4 amps and it runs fine without the battery installed, When I dont have the battery installed and the charger pluged in there is no indication that the changer is indeed plugged in and also when I turn it on I usually press the button just a bit longer to turn it on

The fact that you were able to boot normally after F2 into the bios menu, F9 to re-set the bios to factory default, then F10 to save this default bios setting, ***strongly*** suggests that the bios was losing it's memory of the specific hard drive that was installed.    Jack E/NJ

Hi, I was wondering if the Acer Aspire R14 model R5-471T 534x Intel Core CI5-6200U dual-coe has built in BlueTooth 4, and if it supports WiFi AC and what is the physical size of the SDD, is it 2.5" . The reason is that I want to buy this model but only if it supports BlueTooth 4 or 4.1, and it also supports WiFi ac plus a,b.g,n of course and also I want to upgrade the SSD to minimum 500GB instead of the 256GB.
 
Look forward to hear back from you ASAP.
 
Thanks,
 
Sam

If it didn't come with BT, it means the Wifi card in the laptop doesn't have BT. You would need to change the Wifi card to one that does. Yes, you can use a bluetooth dongle.

i just purchased an acer aspire 8730g with built-in bluetooth adaptor, but after installing windows 7 ultimate x64 it is no longer detected for some reason.
it worked just fine before the reformat and installation, so i dunno what is going on here.
i've tried to install the bluetooth drivers from the acer website to no avail. i keep getting an error stating that no bluetooth device is attached, but my bluetooth usb dongle works just fine. i know i could use the dongle but that would defeat the purpose of having it built in.
this is what i would like to know:
1) why isn't the built in adaptor being recognized
2) where can i find a schematic for the build of my laptop to disconnect and reconnect the dongle manually
3) do i have any other options in terms of how to fix this problem, other than using my usb dongle

What you need to do is to uninstall & delete the original driver (right click on the device in Device Manager and select Properties). Reboot and Windows will try to find the proper driver.

I don't have your system. But I know that with the Nov Release of 10, My bluetooth don't work anymore either. When 10240 was released there was no issues. However with the November 10586 after the update it said Sorry this bluetooth wasn't compatible and was removed.  I tried to reinstall the Wireless/Bluetooth Driver but bluetooth still away. Lucky my Wireless part still working....  Maybe it could be the same thing with yours. Or maybe if you give your Wireless/Bluetooth model maybe there is others that have info about a good Driver for your system James PS. Not all systems have everything that is listed in the Drivers list of Acers website. It could be that yours didn't come with the Bluetooth Part

I even looked at some other Models they do not seem to have any Drivers either ...
So i read some of the Manuals they only had a brief description nothing else ..

Best to wait for a Virus/Malware expert to help you out, in the meantime, try and save any Important Files/documents you have to a CD or DVD or Flash drive or external hard drive,etc.

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting - Windows 7 Forums STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Initially, when I had installed windows 10 the keyboard used to work perfectly, but just few days ago when I got the new upgrade and did so, the keyboard then is having issue of few keys not working in it like function keys, some of the num keys, Pg Down, End Keys etc. So, kindly suggest what should be done in regards with that.

When Windows 10 is installed (brilliant) onto Win7 your USB3 cabability is lost, it reverts to USB2 only, because there are no driver updates available from ACER for legacy laptops. Can ACER please advise how to get a USB3 driver?Thanks in anticipation.

Hi BobMassie,
 
Unfortunately, I don't have a specific answer but generally it is 3 or 4 would tell you at the time of making the disks how many are required. Based on region, and specific OS requirements it could vary slightly.
 
I might suggest trying to put the first disk back in to see if that allows the process to continue. if not, you may want to contact support to see if you can obtain a set of media from Acer.

I have an acer 5742 which I got for my grandson for christmas, but have gone onto it and it willnot connect to internet, and keeps freezing, will also not log of. Can anyone help me with what the problem is, it did work a couple of weeks ago, but has now decided to stop working, it is for christmas so am desperate to sort out problem.
 

A:Acer 5742 internet connection problem

Hi. Your problem description is a bit vague. The laptop, I assume it is brand new? So it is strange that it is freezing...Did you install any applications on it, or perhaps put a flash drive in to the system? Also, how do you connect to the internet? Router(WiFi or ethernet cable) or 3G(Cellular) with a USB Network Adapter?

Try restoring your computer to factory settings, since it is freezing and it is brand new (supposedly) - Restart, and very early in the startup, the laptop should tell you to press a key to enter the 'Startup recovery/menu' or some similar message. The key to press is normally 'esc'. It will give you a System recovery Menu specific to your manufacturer. Somewhere there in the menu there must be a 'System Recovery' option, where you will recover your pc to factory state(or 'out of the box' state). This will erase all your data on the PC and will restore it to exactly what is says: Factory Settings - As if the PC was brand new.

Try it and connect to the internet again and come back to tell me what happens

My Acer 5742 laptop is not able to reboot during start up. It says: "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer."
I called Acer and they say that my warranty is over (even I paid for the 3 yr extended warranty at future shop) and they put me to a 3rd party repair shop based in India which asked me to pay for their repair service. I brought it to future shop(best buy)) they want me to pay $99 for initial trouble shooting and more money for the other technical repair because they say it is software problem. Unfortunately, when future shop did the laptop set up, they did not save a recovery disc or Windows 7 discs for me. How can I repair my laptop from here. Will appreciate any help. Thanks.

A:Acer 5742 crash-window 7 repair

You would need to run startup repair (three times with a restart in between each if necessary) - Startup Repair

If your System Spec is right, you should install 64bit since you have 6GB RAM. However, there is no upgrade path from 32 to 64 bit. So you would have to clean install Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Can you not find a 64bit Home Prem installation DVD from a friend?

If you need to get your user files/data off try booting with Linux Mint MATE (if asked choose TRY and not install) and copy them to an external drive.

Hi there
You need to tell your computer that you want to boot from a CD. When you first turn on the computer, do you see something along the lines of "Press F2 for setup" or something like that? if you do, go into the setup and change the "Boot Order" so that your CD drive appears higher up in the list. If you cannot figure that out, search for "Boot from CD" in google for tutorials.

A:Acer Aspire V5-171 USB3 problems

Hi there
Not sure what the problem is --I have the identical laptop - although the rare small screen 11 in version with the i3 rather than I5 processor - probably not on sale any more as it was "Too cheap and too good Value" with that size screen but it's beautifully compact - most convienient portable laptop I've ever owned !! and my USB3 works perfectly -- I didn't install any drivers --just a CLEAN install W8 Enterprise x-64 from TechNet. No trouble whatsoever - and in spite of the I3 processor it's powerful enough for my portable needs and the battery life is great. - Fitted it with an SSD and 8 GB RAM.

(It can drive a large external monitor at full HDMI HD TV @ 1080P out (and higher) and even the native 768 X 1366 isn't too horrible on an 11 in screen anyway).

I'm seeing 50 - 80 Mb/s on external USB 3 drives which is about within the expected range -- slightly slower on the small "Self powered" one's.

I sometimes use a powered USB3 Hub since I only have 1 USB 3 port on the machine -- this doesn't seem to slow the USB3 disks down either even when copying data from ome ext USB3 disk to anopther one.

Windows 8 provides all the drivers necessary for USB3 on this laptop.

Maybe a wipe and a complete clean re-install is your best bet. - Try the FREE evaluation of W8 Enterprise from Ms --just to see if a CLEAN non pre-installed version of W8 works on your machine correctly. -- Back up any important data first before re-installing your OS though.

Cheers

A:Acer Aspire 5315 problems

Hello TheKillerQueen and welcome to TSF,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but turning on the computer was the wrong thing to do...

Coffee crystallizes when the liquid evaporates leaving behind a conductive residue...

Powering on the computer without a proper tear down and clean likely resulted in short circuits which damaged motherboard components.

If the notebook was operating correctly before the spill, it is unlikely a damaged DC jack will be the culprit.

It is highly probable that the board is now damaged beyond repair.

Check to make sure that the fan is still working. Can you feel air coming out of the vents?
Blow out the vents with canned air. DON'T use a compressor or a vacuum as this will damage components on the system.
Make sure that you run the computer on a hard surface (like a table top) and not on your lap or on a bed/sofa (or anything else that will block the vents)
