Preferred Solution: ASPIRE V3-772G has lost all USB Drive & Bluetooth

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.)

Qualcomm Bluetooth Atheros Driver went missing after win 10 update. Bluetooth devices cannot connect. Unable to find win 10 driver, is there an updated version available? Where to search for? Or is it better to roll back to win 8.1 :-(

Hi, I have an "Aspire V3-772G-747a161TMakk", which has a 1TB HDD installed on it by default. I was wondering if I could add a 1TB SSD and another 256GB mSATA SSD to it? Would my laptop then be able to read all 3 drives at the same time? SSDs aren't cheap, so I really need to know if they're going to work on it, if I'm going to buy them. Thank you for your time

Hi, I just bought 2x 4gb PC3 12800 SODIMM RAM for my laptop knowing that only 2 of the 4 ram slots are used, but no matter how I position my new RAM sticks they do not fit in to the slots (3 and 4) that are above the already used slots. I've tried putting them in at a slight angle, straight on, etc. but they won't lock in and the metal arms are not lined up to the notches. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello everyone, how are you?I was wondering if anyone knows how i can increase the VRAM, of my PC. Apparently, to run some applications ( and games ), i need more than the default 32MB VRAM. I was happy to notice that I can do some computation intensive work rather comfortably with this machine but a little depressed when it couldnt run a few applications that Laptops with 4gb ram and about 300GB hard disk space could run with ease. My graphics card is about 4gb, i think, 1TB disk space and 32 GB RAM but the computer lags when running some games and does not open some games and applications at all. I find this rather strange. Any solutions or suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi, it will work as you can see in this post: https://raywoodcockslatest.wordpress.com/2013/11/06/acer-aspire-v3-772g-9829-hardware/ But it will be a headache as you can see in the post, because you will need the mounting bracket for the second HDD which is not provided by acer in the notebook if you don't have 2 HDD's installed by default. Also the 2 screws for the mSATA are not provided. Remember that is an mSATA port not an M.2 SSD port.

Hi, When I start the laptopt I get the classical Black screen : no logo, leds turn up, fan works. The problem is that it doesn't happen always. Changed the RAM, put an additional 7200 1TB and 128 GB SSD, tried the 30 sec power with  no battery  but still the same. Suggestions what I should try next?

Hi there!I've recently installed the Windows 10 Anniversary update on three Acer laptops.On the two first laptops it installed just fine, but on the third laptop it did not. Now this laptop is stuck in boot loop. I'm unable to access Windows in any way, even in safe mode. I can access Bios though, but that is of course not unexpected.Installation of the update worked on:Acer Aspire V3 772G (My laptop)Acer Aspire 5553G (My older laptop)Did not work on:Acer Aspire V3 772G (My mothers laptop)Awaiting installation:Acer Aspire 5553G (My sisters laptop)Any suggestions?

Hello, i have an acer Aspire V3-772g (with windows 10) that i bought 3 years ago, yesterday i tried to shut it down and it wouldn't completely shut down, so since i wanted to make sure it was shut down for the night i detatched the battery and cut off the power. Today when i tried to start it it stopped at the Acer screen (the one before windows boots). held down the power button and tried to restart, same screen but now there was "preparing automatic repair" at the bottom of the screen. It kept going for more than 2 hours so i tred to shut it down again and boot the bios, but somehow i can't do that (maybe holding the power button or cutting the power is not a complete shutdown?). Anybody knows how to solve my problem, or at least how to access bios?Thanks in advance

Hello everyone. I asked on reddit and did some research and finally found out that I couldn't upgrade my laptop's video card the traditional way. However, someone suggested that I use the eGPU but told me to check if my laptop would support it. I would also like to know the possible repercussions of this installation (someone said that I may have to remove my laptop's wireless functionality.) Thanks in advance.

A:Aspire V3-772G wifi-issues after win10 update

Any time I have a driver issue like that, I open Device Manager, go to the device, and Uninstall/Delete the device drive. Then reboot and let the system discover the drive automagically. With the WiFi driver that can be more difficult. Can you connect directly to your router for a network connection ? (a decent 10/100/USB 2.0 connector is under $12 on Amazon, $15 for a USB 3.0 10/100/1000.

Hi Ashley,
 
I don't have much help to provide, but I think it does sound like it's an issue with the OS and not the hardware as you were able to install the original once. Hopefully this bump puts more eyes on it, but the majority of people are not on Windows 10 yet to help at this level. It might come down to doing a reinstall when you do find the time.
 
Sorry I can't be more help,
Cory

Hi All,

I have been using my Acer Aspire v3-772G for three days now and have now 10 blue screens.
4 times IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
2 times SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I can not say there is pattern how to reproduce it - it has been coming suddenly most of the times.
What I have tried so far:
-updated all drivers listed on manifacturer site
-updated BIOS
-run Microsoft memory check whole day long with no error (could not make memtest86 to boot from usb).
-uninstalled McAfee

I have attached the output from your utility.

Any help is highly appretiated.

A:Acer Aspire v3-772G - brand new laptop 10 BSOD for 3 days

Bluetooth is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Out of 10 memory dumps there were 7 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Does anyone knows whether the Acer Aspire 5253-BZ661 laptop has a built-in bluetooth device in it? Reading from articles on the internet, I don't see any information regarding this laptop's particular model having a built-in bluetooth device in it but has a bluetooth driver and suite ready for the download at the acer main site.

Hello.... Just purchased an Acer Aspire T3-710. There was no bluetooth adaptor in the package to link wireless keyboard & mouse. Am I wrong in thinking this adaptor should come with this pc?

A:Bluetooth adaptor for Aspire T3-710

I think you have to post your complete model number. The T3-710-UR56 comes with bluetooth, for example. http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/DT.B1HAA.006 Since you didn't post your complete model number, it's impossible to know if yours was supposed to come with bluetooth.

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.

After downloading the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to my R5-471T-51UN laptop, my Logitech M535 Bluetooth mouse will no longer re-connect after either a power-cycle of the mouse or a reboot of the laptop; I have to re-pair the mouse with the laptop every time I want to use it. Uninstalling and re-installing the most current available version of the Bluetooth driver has no effect. I suspect that there is a compatibility problem with the Bluetooth driver and the Anniversary Update because: - I didn't have this problem prior to the installation of the Anniversary Update- My Logitech mouse does not require its own driver- When I turn off the mouse with the Windows Bluetooth dialog open, the status goes from "Connected" to "Driver error" to "Paired" Would appreciate any additional troubleshooting advice that I might be overlooking, or (preferably) an estimate as to when a fixed Bluetooth driver will be made available.

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!

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 have an Acer Aspire V3-571 laptop operating on Windows 7. When i try to connect them via bluetooth, my laptop recognises it as a samsung bluetooth headset, not an audio dock. It connects but it doesn't work. The sound still comes out of my computer's speaker, not the samsung speakers. I have tried removing and re-adding it numerous times in my laptop's bluethooth devices, but it still wont work.
Someone help!

I have got this Bluettoth dongle which i've been using for 5 years on my old computer with windows xp and had no problems at all.

So now on windows 7, i just plugged in the bluetooth dongle and it installed the drivers and it works the same way as on xp, but i cant transfers files, like long ones such as 2mb, i sent a 200kb file with no problems, but it fails to transfer 2mb files.

This is on my mobile phone i sending from, onto computer.

What shall i do?

Hi everyone,

Recently my laptop's hard drive died and I had to replace it. Upon installing the recovery media, it appears I have lost my bluetooth connectivity. If I do a computer wide search for "Bluetooth," nothing appears. This is how I would opened my bluetooth settings before the hard drive replacement. Nothing appears in Device Manager or Network and Internet. Have I lost bluetooth forever? Will I needed buy an adapter to replace it?

The b.t. wizard for sending files to the smartphone works fine, receiving does not work yet, but this is a fault probably in the smartphone itself (samsung star s5230) that for some reason still sees an old computername (no more in use after windows reinstall), this is visible with search directly from the smartphone, but is does receive files. Ok, solved for the pc part at least.

I have a Dell Inspiron 7520 running Windows 10. Bluetooth was working fine but I got stuck in Airplane mode and had no internet or bluetooth. Finally reconnected with the internet but uninstalled bluetooth, as a last resort. Trying to download the drivers ( 1704 ) I get a message to "activate bluetooth using wireless switch". How do I do that? That's where I'm stuck. I also can not get in to the BIOS to turn on "bluetooth" if that is necessary? Any help is appreciated. Thanks,

Have you tried the W7 64 bit driver 7.2.0.60 driver yet? - ASUS - Networks- ASUS USB-BT211 Mini Bluetooth Dongle

If it wont install normally use compatibility mode for W7 :

To install a driver/program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with w7 etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

But I have just noticed that the ON/OFF Toggle switch has now disappeared, so I do not have the option of turning Bluetooth OFF again should I ever want too.

See screenshot showing Bluetooth Working fine, but missing the Toggle Switch which should be showing on top of the Screen..

Laptops usually have a keyboard shortcut to enable/disable bluetooth? ?

I am not sure in this, but You can try to press the Win key + X, there is an option for it in the windows that pops up. Tell me if this works or not. ?


3 Answer 3


I found a solution that seems to work for me.
1.) Uninstall everything that is Bluetooth-related that is listed in Programs & Features.
2.) Uninstall all Bluetooth-related drivers listed in the Device Manager.
3.) Restart the computer. Bluetooth will be reinstalled, and you can reinstall the programs that you removed from Programs & Features.

Bring up the start menu. Search for "Device Manager".In Device Manager, expand Bluetooth.Right click on Bluetooth Generic Adapter and update the driver.Restart.
Worked for me.

We found this problem recently on one Yoga3 pro-1370 / 80HE, so far one user reported it out of 20 who are using the same model. The user bought a Mircosoft bluetooth mouse not long ago, she noticed that the mouse stops working in the middle of her work, issue started about 1 week ago. When problem happens, if open the Windows 10 action centre then try to enable / disable bluetooth, though the icon is there but it didn't response. Support suggested to upgrade bluetooth driver but problem is still. Once the problem happens, bluetooth is also gone under Computer > Device list, scanning new device can't bring it back, only reboot can help - it will be back to work by itself. Closing lid is not the case according to user and it happens randomly but confirmed it is in the middle of work. Can someone shed some light on it? Thank you very much.,

Hello all,

I'm using this bluetooth mouse (Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Wireless Optical Mouse Black H3S-00003 - Best Buy) and it usually connects fine with my laptop. Sometimes, though, it looses connection seemingly out of nowhere. Then the BT icon disappears completely from Device Manager, the mouse disappears from Devices and Printers (although there is a 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device' listed, it is not the mouse and to the best of my knowledge I have no other BT connections so I'm not sure what that is. Going to properties of that device gives no useful information).

Finally, when I go to Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network Connections, there is nothing regarding bluetooth listed.

Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

-Matt

A:Bluetooth Connection Lost, cannot reconnect, BT seems to disappear

Forgot to mention, when the mouse is connected, all the drivers are up to date. I've checked several different drivers, all up to date.

I have a WD Red 2.0 TB drive (1.8 TB formatted) and have been watching it fill up (%used) for some time now. I have lost 1 TB to "unknown" according to WinDirStat. VSS is NOT RUNNING, which I read about in the tutorial here: System Protection - Turn On or Off.

So, what could be eating this space and how do I recover it?

FYI - the usual litany - No viruses; Disk Cleanup was run; Drive diagnostics pass; Chkdsk, defrag, etc. all OK.
Also, the thing I use the drive for is to maintain program libraries. I perform a lot of temporary folder copies and delete old copies. The recycle bin is empty. Have no idea why this space is lost.

A:Lost space on external drive - Lost 1TB of 2TB drive

I've always found WinDirStat results a bit cryptic.

Maybe you can get a more sensible result with a similar free application:

TreeSize Free - Quickly Scan Directory Sizes and Find Space Hogs

The usual suspects are hibernation file, System Restore points, page file, malware/virus, or some program doing something you don't expect it to do. For instance, we recently had a case here where someone was using a cloud backup program that was mis-configured and putting the backups on local drives, rather than in the cloud.

I recently bought a Satellite T130-11U and established a connection with my Nokia N82, using PC Suite.
Then I installed my Mobile Broadband (TMN operator) and lost the Bluetooth connection.

There must be some way to overcome this "conflict".
Anyone faced the same problem?

Thank you.

A:Satellite T130-11U lost Bluetooth connection after installing Mobile Broadb

Hi

Maybe this 3rd party application is not compatible and this is the reason why this happens?
But first of all you should check if the Bluetooth is still enabled?

Furthermore you should check if this issue would happen after installation of new BT stack?

Here you can find the new BT stack:

hi - i was just playing music on my dell latitude e4300 via bluetooth to a belkin bluetooth receiver connected to stereo.

somehow the connection got dropped - during a phone call on a land line. may be irrelevant.

now, i cannot get bluetooth connection back. there is no bluetooth icon in the system tray.

i cannot find 'bluetooth' devices in start>control panel> devices
--i have 2, and both ought to be there.

i unplugged bluetooth receiver, and had win 7 search for devices to add - no luck.

sure, i can reboot, and everything will probably come back.
but i am hoping for a better answer. i don't want to have to reboot every time the bluetooth connection gets lost.

i searched the web for a little, but only found unrelated posts, or posts with no answer. THANKS!

ok, i rebooted, thinking the bluetooth icon would again be in system tray, with the red in the middle, showing i have bluetooth capability, but that sound is not currently being directed to bluetooth.

no icon.

the dell laptop does have bluetooth icon illuminated on the laptop, just above the function keys - not on the screen at all / not in sys tray.

the bluetooth receiver is on, is working.
