R5-471T can't move around in BIOS security screen

Q: R5-471T can't move around in BIOS security screen

I have a new R5-471T and updated the BIOS to 1.10. In the BIOS menu on the Security page (where one enters Supervisor password, etc.), the up and down arrow keys are not recognized, so I can't change any values. They work on other pages. The left-right arrow keys work fine. The Supervisor password item is highlighted - I can press Enter and type in a password, but I can't advance to the confirmation field so I can't even set that!

Preferred Solution: R5-471T can't move around in BIOS security screen

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.)

Hi All, I have just purchases an R5 471T and doing some upgrading last night.  I noticed there are 3 Bios updates. As this is my first ACER, should I do the updates? I know there is a caution on updating BIOS but I just wanted to confirm Thank you,

A:Aspire R5 471T Bios Update

In general I do not do BIOS updates without a reason. I also wait about a month for new updates (Win 10 is annoying that way) If it is working well, don't fix it. The R5-471T I have here is on BIOS 1.03.

I puchased a R5-471T-52EE on Friday (3 days ago) and the touch screen does not work.  After peeking around, I don't have Pen and Touch settings in control panel, and there is no HID Compliant - Touch Screen recognized in the Device Manager.  There's no value in doing a factory restore because it is like this out of the box. Is there something I could be missing, or do I need to return to Best Buy?

rpozun,
 
If you are totally against a factory reset, which you should not be since it is brand new, you can try a refresh first to see if that fixes it.

I changed a setting in my BIOS that I thought would add voltage to my CPU. Now my PC won't even boot the BIOS. I changed the Vcore clock from the default 1.0v to 1.175v.

What can I do ? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

A:Bonehead BIOS move

Reset the BIOS with the CMOS reset jumper on the motherboard, failing that remove the CMOS battery for 10 minutes or longer then replace it, that should set the BIOS back to default settings.

I have been trying to set up a simple desktop computer for my office out of spare parts. I installed XP professional on a SSD and then moved the drive to another MB to try it and the CPU it has on it. The drive would not work on that MB, so I moved the drive back to the original MB. Now it will not make it past the post screen there.
 
I had XP Pro. installed on a old HD and it would work on either MB.
 
Is it going to be a headache trying to swap around and assemble the best components? Should I not swap parts around, but assemble what should be the best and "then" install the OS?
 
Thanks, Deron.
 
 

A:XP security, does it lock you out when you move hard drive?

You need to clean install XP after assembling the hardware. Moving XP from one hardware type to another can give you issues as during the install XP uses drivers for the hardware it detects. When moving to a different MB you will have booting issues along with activation problems.

However, when I do this the security settings of the old folder do not copy over.

I would like the same settings to copy over. How do you do that?

I have owned my Aspire R5-471T laptop for about 4 days.   It appears to work just great except for 1 quirk.  It intermittently disconnects itself from my home network (other computer devices in the house do not do this).  It takes an adapter reset (through selecting troubleshooting) to reconnect.   any ideas?

A:model--r5-471T

If you still have problems...... Make sure you have the latest firmware on the ASUS router.  Go to ASUS website and search for firmware for your router model.  After you flash latest firmware...reset ASUS to factory defaults by pressing and holding the reset button for more than 5 seconds.  And then reconfigure it manually from scratch.  Don't try to restore previous settings.  It's best to use as many of the default router settings as possible unless you really know what you're doing. Delete (forget) the old wireless profiles on your computers.  And then restart your computers.  And then reconnect. And if you're still having problems after that........ 1.  Disable IPv6 on the ASUS router2.  Unplug the ASUS, your modem, and any access points from the electrical outlet.3.  Power down all of your computers.4.  Plug in ASUS. modem, and access points.5. Turn on computers.6.  After everything is working ok for 48 hours, enable IPv6 on the ASUS. I had something similar happen on a different computer model, and it was due to me tinkering with IPv6.

By maximizing the Window it will fill only to the corners of the screen which will actually reduce any of the window that is beyond the screen and make it go corner to corner only.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

A:I Can't Move My Screen Horizontally

it would seem your talking about scrolling left to right while inside a web page.

This is what happens.

a web page is too big horizontally for your display settings, so the browser throws a horizontal scroll bar in there so you can see the whole page.

a web page is not too big horizontally for your display settings, so the browser does not need to use the horizontal scroll bar.

if you really want that bar back...

in ie, go to page > zoom > 100%

if its already selected, just find a page thats too wide for your display settings. (some myspace pages are like this)

I don't know if it's my computer or Yahoo. Everytime I go into Yahoo or a site from Yahoo, my screen freezes up. When I am in email I can't open mail without a long wait, I can't move mail to a folder or it freezes the screen and if I click on a site, nothing happens. My mouse moves but I have to turn the computer off and reboot to get the screen to move. I feel like I have dial up again. I'm suppose to have a high speed internet service. I spend hours trying to get through my email because I have to constantly reboot or wait for 2 or 3 minutes for it to open.. If I go to a site through my favorites, I don't seem to have a problem.

I can't really explain it, cause my keyword lead me to Alt+Space+M.

It's different because the way it works just different.
In Ubuntu, You can Hold down ALT Button and drag a window whenever you want to go. (This kind of ability I want to talk about)

Why I am asking this? I encountered some installer like AutoCAD, even with full resolution of my laptop (1920x1080) The window still show 90% of it, which is bad because the important button are on the bottom like [Next] [Cancel] [Install] [Finish], etc. I tried to drag it to the top, but Windows 7 won't let me do that.
Also, the installation screen doesn't have ability to Maximize.

Hi,

Recently, in the screen of my laptop computer, started to appear some gray spots in the screen, and opening, closing or just moving a bit the screen, it disappeared, or sometimes it got worse. Then appeared horizontal white stripes which keep moving down until it ocuppies all the screen . Once, when I turned on the laptop, the screen was completelly perfect for 5 minutes but then the stripes appeared again.

These stripes appear when turning on the labtop, go descending slowly, until occupying all the screen. I asked to some people what this could be about, and they said it could some pixel error or the video card error.

I took a print screen of it:



Oh, I was forgotting, I tried to restaure the laptop to 10 day back but I am not able to do it! Why?

How this happened? What can I do to fix this?

Thanks

A:Stripes in the screen.. and they move!!

Usually it means that you are losing your video card (or video chip) since it a laptop. Are you sure that the restore is turn on in the laptop. It might be turned off, and if it is. There will be no restore point.

Intel has a stable driver release dated 3/8/2016 for HD520 graphics. The i5-6200U found in this laptop is specifically mentioned. This driver can not be installed on the 471T by any traditional/standard means. Acer needs to package a newer driver release for this laptop desperately. Doesn't matter what I do, this machine is plagued with constant GPU driver crashes, especially while browsing the web (browser choice doesn't matter). This is a WIDELY KNOWN issue with skylake laptops, and is largely solved by a driver update, but this can not be done without an Acer packacged driver release. Running 5 months behind schedule on driver releases is not even reasonable. Shame on you Acer. If you want to be taken seriously get this done now. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25818/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-10-15-40-

Both control keys on my R3-471T convertible have stopped working after 16 months .  I have ordered a new keyboard/palmrest but need instructions on how to replace it.   Are there any instructions specific to the R3-471T that are available?  Thanks!

Intel has a stable driver release dated 3/8/2016 for HD520 graphics. The i5-6200U found in this laptop is specifically mentioned. This driver can not be installed on the 471T by any traditional/standard means. Acer needs to package a newer driver release for this laptop desperately. Doesn't matter what I do, this machine is plagued with constant GPU driver crashes, especially while browsing the web (browser choice doesn't matter). This is a WIDELY KNOWN issue with skylake laptops, and is largely solved by a driver update, but this can not be done without an Acer packacged driver release. Running 5 months behind schedule on driver releases is not even reasonable. Shame on you Acer. If you want to be taken seriously get this done now. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25818/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-10-15-40-

Hello,

I have two displays setup, one is a TV (main display) and the other is a small monitor (extended display).

When I'm only using the small monitor as a display, how would I go about moving windows over from the main display to this extended one?

I am not talking about disabling the main display or changing those settings. I want the small monitor to still be the extended display. I simply want to move windows over via the task-bar or another method that doesn't involve clicking the window itself (which is on the main display, which is either off or displaying something else).

A:Move window to current screen?

For any dual or multi display set up most will opt for a 3rd party program like DisplayFusion or UltraMon. Each of the two programs feature a Smart bar or extension of the taskbar where when moving anything over for display from one to the other the icon on the taskbar goes along with it.

Another feature seen with the two is the move button which eliminates the need to click on and hold as you drag a window from one screen to the next. With a manual click to hold and drag the window being moved will maximise itself upon reaching the next screen. With a move button the window remains at the same size.

I thought it may be a problem with OS so i upgraded it to windows 10, but the problem still exists, some help needed here :/

A:Screen gets jerky when I don't move my mouse

Assuming all your drivers for your chipset, sound and graphics are the latest and up to date, and you also have a good internet connection, (a silly question in Singapore, I guess) is your power supply behaving properly?

Are the drivers Microsoft versions or from Asrock or Nvidia?

Are you using a browser to watch the video stream, or a dedicated app?

Are your power management settings optimised for multimedia playing?

Can you run, say, a live Linux disk and watch the same streamed programme without problems?

If it comes down to the browser, try using a different one - as well as the 2 Microsoft offerings: Edge or IE11- there's a plethora of Chrome-based browsers, and Mozilla (Firefox) based ones that may work better.

If you can get a dedicated app, it may work more smoothly.

Whenever I try to move the tiles after half a second, they snap back. If I unpin any tiles they re appear after a restart. I have no idea why they're doing this and it's so annoying. Does anyone know how to stop this?

Thanks,
Rick

A:Start screen tiles won't move.

From my experience, you have to create a new group to move the tiles. You can do this by dragging a tile to either the extreme right or left side of the screen, wait for the dividing bar to appear, and then releasing the tile. Once done, it should snap into the new group. As far as removing tiles, I simply unpin them from the start screen and they stay unpinned (eg, they don't come back). Good luck.

A:Move a window slightly off screen

You could disable auto window arrangement. Press Winkey-q then type the word auto in the input line while Settings is highlighted.

Alternatively you could move the window to a location using a negative 'y' value with a scripting language. That way the mouse would not trigger the auto sizing.

For example using Autohotkey free scripting language you could easily set a hotkey, such as Winkey-y to move the active window(the one that has keyboard focus.. usually the last one you clicked with the mouse) so that the top of the window is 10 pixels above the top of the desktop. You might also want to program another hotkey to center it, just to make it easy to move again if you can't get at the caption bar with the mouse.

See Autohotkey help for WinGetPos and WinMove. There are forums where you may ask for help with your scripts. Newbie programmers drop in all the time. No reason not to take advantage of the resource.

on the left side of the screen, my mouse cursor can go completely off the viewable screen, and if pushed all the way to the right, part of the cursor can be seen on the left edge of the viewable screen.

could this be a video driver problem?

A:mouse cursor able to move of the screen, why?

Your problem seems to be that you have activated the multiple monitor feature, but there's no second monitor connected. To try this, open a program (the calculator wil be fine) and then try to move the window off the screen completely. If you can do this, then you have the multiple monitor feature on.

To disable this, rigth click a free space in the desktop, and click on properties. Go to the Configuration tab, and you'll see two monitors. Select the left one, right click it and disable it. Press Ok, and all the problems gone.

You can find all the nVidia drivers in www.nvidia.com

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.

A:R5-471T-52EE USB C output support a "3rd" monitor?...

I use a Targus dock & Displaylink drivers to provide signal to two monitors from the USB 3.0 port and can send to a third with the HDMI (not counting the R5 display) so could be four. Mediasonic also has a good dual display dock (have to be careful some docks advertise HDMI OR VGA. A true dual display dock will support simultaneus displays). Without an external adapter of some sort I do not know of a way to support three monitors with different displays. The manual seems to be a cut'n'paste from a R3 that does have a RJ-45 jack, the R5 doesn't. (but both of my docks have gigabit ethernet jacks & have seen over 80MB/s at home.)

I was trying to install windows 7 on this laptop without success until I found the Microsoft windows 7 USB 3 creator, the installation was successfull but now the big problem, USB is not detected in the windows, it needs a driver and there is no lan, wan, bluetooth, card reader, usb3 port, all that doesn't work unless I install the USB driver.How I can install the USB driver and everything is not detected?Acer claims the block port is usb 2.0 port but no it is usb 3.0 port.If windows successully installed, where are the native usb 3 driver used during the installation?

A:Aspire R5 471T-71W2 windows 7 USB problem

as far as i know, windows 7 doesn't have a native USB3.0 support by the way on your laptop an USB 2.0 (the one not blu) is available and this, normally works under windows 7. if you still have issues, you could try to create a slipstream version with some embedded drivers, nLite will help you do it (it's free):https://www.ntlite.com/http://www.askvg.com/download-nlite-for-windows-7-windows-8-and-windows-8-1/

Hi, I have noticed that my acer aspire R14 (R5-471T) (i7 version) records fake touches when brighness is set on highest. Initially I had no idea why it was happening but after a while I noticed this pattern. Since, I don't keep brightness on highest level, this is not a very big issue for me but I though it would be good to let the community know. I may be wrong and it might be issue just with my unit.

Some Touch screens do this on max brightness. I have seen this issue in laptops,touch monitors and phones.You can type Configuration into Windows search and run it and maybe it will help.

So recently I need to get a Sony Tie Clip Microphone to work on my Acer Aspire R3-471T laptop, however, as there is only one audio jack, I do not know how to connect the microphone so the laptop identifies it as a microphone. I do recall very slightly a notification asking me which device Apple headphones where and maybe seeing a microphone option.  I cannot seem to find anyway to get the laptop to recognize the mic as a microphone and I would prefer not a purchase an audio apparatis if it can be avoided. Is there anyway to do this? or am I just spending time pulling out hair on a fruitless task?

A:External microphone trouble (Aspire R3-471T)

Hello, You need a cable to separate the headphone/microphone plugs. E.g this kind of product.You'll have the microphone input with this one.

I have always turned off mouse precision for windows so there's no mouse acceleration on mouse or touchpad.If I installed anniversary update, then I get a large amount of acceleration that wasn't there before the update. Mouse is unaffected. Is there any fix for this.

A:R5-471T-52EE Touchpad Anniversary Update

Turning Touchpad settings in BIOS from advanced to basic removed the acceleration but also turn off precision touchpad. It's also very slow without turning the mouse sensitivity very high. The current driver is a generic HID-compliant touch pad driver from Microsoft. I have just tried installing a Synaptics generic driver, it did not fixed the issue.

Hello everyone. As the title says, i have problems with both shutdown and hibernate procedures. There are many times when i try to shutdown or hibernate the laptop, the screen turns black, but the laptop still works, and it won't shutdown/hibernate, which forces me to close the laptop from the power button. Some of the times it works. So if anyone knows what the problem might be...it would be amazing. Thank you and a good day.

Hi, I have a problem with my Aspire R5-471T in which I have no internet, and when I try to set-up a connection it says "Windows did not detect any networking hardware". I tried re-installing the drivers, and even doing a full reinstall via the "Reset" option. The laptop was having some issues for finding the internet connection in the past days but then it found it, but now it doesn't work at all.Any ideas or suggestions? Might it be a real hardware issue? Because I don't know what else to do on the driver side.

Hi Guys,

I hope this hasn't been asked before but here goes: Is there any way to move the user icon and password box to a different location rather than the default center?

The reason I ask is that I'm building a new PC for my Mom, and I'd like to use a photo of my late brother as the log on screen background - only not block out his face. Does that make sense?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Way to move log on screen user icon box location?

Many people peeped here, but nobody answered..... means the asswer is not known, I also dont know how to do it . But if the PC is not locked by any password, and only one user is there, the user account icon will not be shown in the logon screen. Dont know whether you will let it be unprotected or not.

I'll pray for your deceased brother's peace. Very recently I lost my father.

I tried to edit windows\system32\authui.dll - UIFILE with Restorator to customize my windows 7 logon screen.
What I want to do is to move the user icon, user name and also the password editor to bottomleft of the screen. I found it uses layout and layoutpos to decide where a element should be put. But I don't know how do functions like "filllayout, flowlayout(0,2,0,2)" work.

I wonder if there is any document describes how to use it,
or anybody could tell me how to.

A:How to move items on Windows7 logon screen

The system file to be mod is authui.dll
Tools needed - Resource Hacker
Open authui.dll with resource hacker...under UIFILE expand 12400 folder scroll down to line 120
Original XML
<UserTile resid="UserTileTemplate" margin="rect(0rp,10rp,0rp,10rp)" layout="verticalflowlayout(0,2,2)" sheet="UsersStyle">

Modify XML
<UserTile resid="UserTileTemplate" margin="rect(0rp,10rp,0rp,10rp)" layout="verticalflowlayout(0,0,2)" sheet="UsersStyle">
Change the value to "0" to control it to the bottom left ( highlighted in red above )....."1" to control it to the bottom right....
Default bottom center.
Do the same to folder 12401 and 12402....logoff or restart to take effect.
Just a word of caution : I will recommend you to set a system restore date.... if you get hit by a black screen just restore it.
and go into safe mode F8 ...when you replace the authui.dll.

Hope it works for you..
