Q: Bought an Acer Aspire E-15 Laptop and NEVER RECEIV...

Hi there.... So I spent an hour this morning and ironically used up 30mins of Skype time to call Acer about my free $10 Skype voucher! I bought this laptop about a month ago and did what many people here seemed to also do - I followed the steps outlined in the leaflet included with my purchase....I registered my product with Acer and waited for an email with the voucher number for Skype....and surprise, suprise it never arrived. I spoke with *6* different people this morning and wasted not only my time but my own Skype minutes calling them. If anyone from Acer can help me with this I would very much appreciate it - as thus far I'm extremely unimpressed with how this has been handled. Thank you!

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.)

Any help, advice, or so forth would be much appreciated. All I know is that I disabled IPv6, did the command prompt line that was suggested (Yes, my speedtest result got better, other than that, nothing happened)

I'm using the wireless card that is inside the case; 802.11n Wirelss LAN Card.
All drivers are up to date.

Disabled MacAffee firewall and installed a different one (AvG) nothing changed.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Please try the following:

Disable McAfee completely, click on Start and type msconfig, in Services Tab uncheck or disable any McAfee Services, test your connection after.

Also, see if it makes any difference if you are logged on in Safe Mode in Networking. Restart your computer, tap F8 and select this option.

An update will be appreciated.

The older Aspire Ones are unlikely to have drivers to let them run on Win 7 and XP's end of life is 04/08/2014. I had two Acer Aspire Ones and both were garbage (as were the Acer desktop, keyboard and mouse I had). Personally, I don't feel it's worth messing with. Hopefully, your father can get his money back.

I am not sure what else I could do to see if in fact the drive was badIf you have another computer and by using a USB external enclosure, you may be able to check the status of both the new and old laptop drives. There maybe a chance that your hard drive is not well seated and needs to gently press while powering up your laptop and then try checking on your BIOS utility. Check also for any dented pins. Have you tried reapplying thermal paste for the CPU and look for any oxidation and burnt components?

Hello NiQui and welcome to TSF!

Have you tried booting in Safe-Mode?.
If not you can try this by holding F8 when Windows is about to boot and a menu should appear. You should select " Boot in Safe Mode". See if you manage to get to desktop with this.

btw "advanced system care" software seemed to have saved my xp computer for now anyway
 

A:Acer Aspire Laptop

First of all try disk clean up > run that
Then again but this time choose 'clean up system files'

Run CCleaner Slim (only in its 'default' settings) and run the cleaner. Use its 'Tools' to remove all but the latest System Restore point.

Other things to free space is do a clean uninstall (using something decent like Revo Uninstaller in its Advanced mode) of any programs you don't need or use.

Hi

My first post and its a problem

basically I have a Acer Laptop when it goes into standby and you try to go back to desktop you get a bluescreen of death and reboots but it happens to fast to see the error.

Other times it will just randomly freeze for no reason.

Sometimes when you press the power button all you get is a black screen.

I have installed winxp home and pro editions, done all service pack updates and driver updates. Updated the bios. and still the problems persist.

Has any one got a solution or faced the same problems.

thx for reading.

A:my acer aspire E15 laptop is not starting up

Since it shut down during gaming (which creates more heat), the laptop may have overheated. When that happens, it shuts down automatically to prevent permanent damage to the components.So let it cool down for a few hours then try again.If it still won't power up you'll have to take it to a laptop repair shop.

I know this has been posted a lot but mine seems to be a little odder than what has been posted. My laptop just shut off one day and will only turn on when the back/bottom of the laptop is not on, which means my motherboard is completely exposed, once I put the back/bottom back on it will not turn on. I thought it might have been the fan, its not brand new fan and still wont turn on. Any help would be awesome!
 

A:Acer Aspire laptop won't turn on

This is not an easy one to help with without have the laptop in my own hands. You will most likely find that there is a bad connection somewhere that is being broken when the base is fitted. Have a good look at all the ribbon cable connections as one has probably worked loose.

My sister's Acer Aspire 3002LMI has recently ceased to power on whatsoever. Bought in '05 and run mostly from the mains, it suddenly acted as though it was running out of battery - despite being plugged into the mains - and went into hibernation.

By the time she showed it to me, pressing the power button would just make the battery charge LED flash 8 times - nothing else. Now, a few days later, absolutely nothing happens when I press the power button.

The problem occurs regardless of whether the battery is in the laptop. She never used the laptop without the battery in - as it formed part of the base - so whether it ever worked without the battery is not certain. I've also tried using another power cable, to no avail.

So, any ideas what the cause of this problem could be? Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Rob

A:Laptop GPU replacement -- Acer Aspire V5 (possible y/n?)

There's no way to upgrade a video card in a laptop unless it's something from ASUS, MSI, Alienware, (If you're lucky)

But even if you could, the upgrade would probably be anywhere from $200-$600+ maybe even more. Old 7900GTX Go cards are still fetching roughly $100 on Ebay

Not the windows part but the time between pressing the power button and Acer logo appearing.. Was very long about 10 to 20 min. I searched for a solution, and I tried removing the bios battery and putting it back. But now it dosntieven boot up anymore. I waited on it all night all nothing. The lights are on I even hear the fan but nothing the screen doesn't show anything.
Could anyone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

Try reseating the memory. If you have more than one stick, try booting with just one stick, and then alternating. Sometimes, it can be the memory slot itself, so try the other.

Also, be sure to have all external devices unplugged: USB sticks, hard drives, mice, etc.

I've had this since it was new, but I got a more powerful asus laptop for christmas last year.However, thats waiting for a new power supply.

This Acer was never THIS bad. Even resuming from sleep mode, the mouse lags badly, sometimes freezing for a few seconds. Chrome takes forever to load. Facebook freezes often. Even using the start menu, it lags. The final straw was when I went to delete a small text document, the entire laptop froze solid and needed to be rebooted.

You guys have helped me in the past, so i'm sure its possible to be fixed. I have tried: uninstalling things, Malwarebytes, Ccleaner.

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 Dave, and welcome to TSG.

Check if the Dell monitor has any buttons for activating an on screen menu that allows you to choose which input it should use.

If you need further assistance, it would help us to help you if you told us the exact model number of the Dell monitor.

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.

A:Acer Aspire 5335 laptop will not boot up

First, we can suggest a number of security softwares that are absolutely free and are excellent in protection.

Second, there is the possibility you'll need to do a reformat due to infection. However, first go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the Updated 8 Step sticky. At this point it doesn't see you'll be able to necessarily do the steps but at least familirize yourself with the process.

Then on that forum, if you cannot do the steps, post your issues and make sure you tell them about the virus.

Common windows XP error. Check to be sure you have all the driver updates from Acer, then make sure you have all the Microsoft updates.
It is not the motherboard. But the fix is different for every computer brand.
I assume you have scanned for virus and spyware, in both normal and Safe Mode.
If you have a copy of Windows XP disk that will allow a Repair mode from a cold boot, that usually takes care of it, otherwise.

Updated to the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers
Uninstalled and re-installed the sound device
Updated to latest Bios
Restored to factory settings
Clean format and re-install of XP Pro SP2

None of these worked. Could it be a hardware problem?

"Hoping upgrading to XP will help some."

That's got me baffled. If it came with Vista pre-installed, putting XP on it would be "downgrading" not upgrading, surely??

Anyways, back to your current problems.
I would start your troubleshooting by testing the hard drive and the RAM

This laptop and I have a love-hate relationship with each other. The laptop has sat idle for months because it stopped charging and I could no longer turn it on because the battery was dead. It has stopped charing before and I left it for months until it randomly decided to start charging again. Before it stopped charging the most recent time, the laptop would only charge if the charging cable was in a certain position. The charger I am using is a Targus charger. When plugged into an outlet, the charger light turns on, however when plugged into the laptop, nothing. Is my laptop battery completely useless and needs to be replaced? Or is it something to do with the charger or charging pin?

Hello, First I would slightly straighten the contact springs of the DC-IN connector (inside).

Got my 5672WLMi last week and out of the box the sound worked fine on boot. But the minute I started playing a game or a media file it starts breaking up and stays that way. I work in IT so did the following things:

Updated to the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers
Uninstalled and re-installed the sound device
Updated to latest Bios
Restored to factory settings
Clean format and re-install of XP Pro SP2

None of these worked. Could it be a hardware problem?
 

A:Help! Bad sound on new Acer Aspire 5672WLMi Laptop

I'm guessing that you mean that the sound is "Stuttering"???

If so, the moat probable cause is that the "LOAD" that the game puts on the Laptop is too much for it to process the sound properly. In normal laptops the sound and video are onboard units (size issues). So, when doing heavy processing, the onboard units are impacted negatively.

Most lappies are not for gaming.

I received a ACER Aspire 1800 laptop. when I push the start button it flickers a second but nothing happens. I know the battery is dead. tried charging over nite. when the ac adapter is plugged in the batt lite flashes so I think the ac adapter is working. my question is does the battery have to have at least a little charge to it for the machine to work. even with the ac adapter plugged in.

Hi - I have a strange problem with my Acer Aspire Ultrabook laptop. The screen only displays when it is part open . As soon as I open the screen fully it just goes to a white blank display. The laptop is working fine other than this problem ..... if I connect to an external screen it works normally.

Hi! I have an ACER Aspire 3050 for some reason will not turn on. No lights, no fan, absolutaly nothing will happen. The laptop isn't actually mine, its a friends. I shake it from side to side a little and I can hear a tinking sound like something is loose. I'm going to try and open it up to see if this is the case but if its not, is there any other reason why it just randomly won't turn on anymore?

Thanks for any help!
 

A:Acer Aspire 3050 laptop will not turn on

I think it's best we wait for your reply to what's loose inside!

Make sure battery and power adaptor out
And also hold down the ON button (to disperse all internal voltage)

Hey all,

I just acquired a new laptop an Acer Aspire E1-510 laptop.
It comes with Windows 8 by default and wanted to install Windows 7, so I did my regular pre-install driver checks, and found out Acer does not have Windows 7 drivers for this model.
I saw in another post that the same thing happened to someone else for a different Acer E1 model and they found the drivers. Could you help me with finding the correct drivers?

Thanks in advance,

Ampie

A:Acer Aspire Laptop won't start/boot

You can either have a failing hard drive on your hands or an over heating system or perhaps both. First lets test your hard drive by going to another computer if possible.

Download UBCD which is in my signature.Burn the ISO Image to a blank CD using Imgburn (How to burn a ISO Image using Imgburn) burn at lowest speed. With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The make and model of your hard drive, Seagate, Maxtor, Drive Fitness which is Hitachi, Or Western Digital. Perform a short and long test. Could also be called "Standard" and "Extended" test or also "Comprehensive" test. The Seagate hard drive test will work on most drives.

If you can not find the right test for your hard drive your OEM computer may have it's own hard drive diagnostics testing tool. Refer to your OEM computer documentation to find out how to access these test. Also try going to the manufacture of your machine to find documentation about it. Also consider going to the manufacture of your hard drive to look to see if they have hard drive diagnostics test. The ideal test or method would include an ISO that could be burned via an image to a cd which would be made bootable.

Also go into bios under Hardware Monitor or PC health and look at temp readings and post here.

Then we will give the next steps depending on the results.

Also I see in your profile you have listed Windows XP. This a Windows 7/Vista portion of TSF. Can you tell us which version of Windows you have so we can better assist you.

Hi All, I have an Acer Aspire laptop with windows vista home basic. About a week ago it just stopped working. it gets to the windows load page where the bars keeps moving to let you know it is loading and thats all i get. It will not go past this point at all. I have tried to load it in safe mode and it stops at windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys I have used the acer recovery software that came with the computer to no avail. The recovery disk load and go all the way thru to the point where you remove the cd's and reboot the system. and you guessed it the same thing happens. I reinstalled windows and you guessed it the same thing happens. I have no idea what to do or where to go from here. Please if anyone has any ideas or has a similar problem please post. Thank you for reading my post.

Hi mmacc

It's a bit hard to state positively what your problem might be, but it looks like it is hardware, probably the Hard Drive. Your options are limited. My recommendation would be to take it to a repair centre. Is it stll under warranty?
