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.)

Did you ever figure this out? I'm thinking about buying one of these (R5-471T-534X) today. That amount of bleed would be really disapointing.

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.

Hi, I have an option to get either one of these laptops but I cannot figure out the difference between the two.  The spec datasheet looks the same.  Can anyone please help.  They look like great laptops but there is a price difference so I am wondering why. Thanks for the help.

Sorry, but after some checking, I was able to confirm that this model only has USB 3.1, and does not have Thunderbolt 3. I am working on getting the link on our website corrected ASAP. Very sorry for any inconvenience.

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 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.

Purchased this product a little over 3 weeks ago.  Problems from the start.  The touchscreen is not at all smooth.  Trying to zoom in on pictures by pinching/spreading fingers on the screen is terrible.  My experience with a competing brand was much better/smoother.  Sometimes the touchscreen just doesn't seem to work at all.  Then it will come back.  Another issue is that my intel graphics driver continually crashes.  This is my last resort before returning the product to exchange for a different brand.  Please help.

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 have a black screen on my Acer Apire Laptop I am fairly good at fixing computer problems but this has me stumped This is what I have done so far Took off the battery and held down the power button for min then plugged the power back in without the battery and nothing happened tried this also with holding down the F and also again holding down the f button Nothing I thought it was the hard drive so I had bought a new one Black only Acer power light with Screen Aspire on and put it in and hit F and my computer started to boot up So I decided to put my old hard drive back in and by chance it came on and started to boot up also I was very happy and I used the computer for day with my power cord plugged in but when I unplugged it and went to plug it back in later and use it again it was back to the dreaded Acer Aspire Black Screen with only power light on Black screen As suggested I took my computer back apart and pulled out the both RAM memory cards and cleaned them and tried switching them in each others slot as suggested and re-booted the computer multiple times but to no avail Still nothing Another thing I notice My battery had gone bad a year ago and I bought another one and had been using it fine but it does get much much hotter than my old one as it runs So I don t know if it is shutting down over that or not I put it in the freezer for min as suggested by others and tryed turning it on again but still nothing ANY SUGGESTIONS IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED nbsp

Hi... Try a power reset. Unplug the adapter (power cord) off the laptop, if you have connected.On the bottom side of the laptop, you will see a small reset hole with a battery symbol.Please insert a thin object like a paper clip into this hole and hold it for 5 seconds.Then plug in the adapter.Turn on the laptop check for the issue.

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.

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/

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 just bought an R5-471T and I want to use it to write notes in class rather than type them. I know the type of touch screen panel it has does not allow for any active pens to work, but would a bluetooth stylus work?

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.

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.

Requires hard shutdown.

Freeze happens while playing video games or watching streaming.

Strange thing about two of these same models is the last driver available for the Nvidia 8200 display chip is from 2009, yet WUD pushes out 9200 drivers for it regularly.

I earlier today rolled back to the Nvidia 8200 driver from 2009. He's since played his usual games with no noticeable performance difference from the 2014 Nvidia 9200 Driver.

But I'd done this before for another PC of the same model to no avail. So I'm hoping one of the analysts here can see if you spot anything else in the upload.

Thanks!

A:Acer Aspire X1300 freezes light blue screen

Is it bugchecking?
I can't see any dump files in the .zip folder.
If it does BSOD does he use programs like CCleaner?
If so then it can remove dump files.

If it is just freezing then Driver Verifier might work some wonders in generating a BSOD.

Enable driver verifier but only enable the options: Standard settings and IRP logging step 3.
Don't enable Force Pending I/O Requests

Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier -Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information

We use Driver Verifier as it puts a stress on the drivers, and so it makes the unstable drivers crash. This should flag the driver responsible in the dump file.
It

Driver Verifier will make the system laggy, this is normal so don't worry.

Before enabling DV, make sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer.

If there are no points, make a System Restore Point Manually

Post back the results.

I had Windows 8 when I purchased this laptop. I upgraded to Windows 10 later on. Recently, the laptop had been giving trouble when installing some Windows 10 update (specifically KB3172729). Right now, it won't boot Windows at all and I am looking to do a clean installation of Windows 10. The problem is I don't have the key. Is it possible to find out the key for either Windows 8/8.1/10?

A:Windows XP, power light, hdd light for 1 sec, black screen

oh, also, i did try and search and most I found were a black screen after the self test or the windows logo, not right away.

also, dont think it matters, but when the lights go out, it is at the point where hitting the power button again, the computer instantly turns off.

also, just checked, and its nothing to do with the lcd. I just hooked up my monitor, and my monitor tells me when there is no signal, and it just stayed black, then when it was unplugged from the laptop that is when it said no signal.

Just got on the computer now, and suddenly everything seems to be slow, I checked the memory and found out that some program is using 94% of the memory, when I was looking for the program I found out that no program is using that amount of memory, 200 at most.

I downloaded RAMmap to map out the memory, and found out that about 94% of the memory is Nonpaged Pool (unallocated?)
. Please see the image below:



As you can see the memory leak clearly.

Here is a second picture, after a computer restart, without firefox it gets to 15% although there is no application who is running on 15% (of 8G, is about 1,000MB of process, which in the picture you can see that it cant be). - maybe it's ok maybe not, in both cases there is a leak as you can see in the first post.

Hey,

I've had this laptop (an Acer Aspire 2930Z) for nearly two years and just today something unusual has started to happen - a pink light has been flashing outside the power button and the battery is supposedly not charging.

I can re-plug the adapter later and everything seems to be fine, then the pink light will happen. It's either the battery or the power adapter that's causing issues, but I'm not sure which. I'd assume it's just the adapter, but some assistance would be appreciated.

Daughter last used laptop on battery power and ran id down completely until computer shut off. She plugged in the power cord and it would not come on when pressing the power button.  Laptop was plugged in overnight and this morning same issue - the power light just blinks five times when you press the power button. This is the same behaviour whether plugged into power or not. I've tried holding down the power button. Tried with battery removed and A/C power, but then no light comes on at all.  I've tried removing the battery and A/C power, holding the power button down for 30 seconds, then install battery and plug in A/C power, but no difference.  I tried a different A/C power adapter and no difference. Any ideas?

A:Getting a light blue screen

If you are running in safe mode then your anti virus software is not enabled and you are open to attack! As the screen looks OK in Safe mode then get rid of AVG and install Windows Security Essentials. This might cure your problem, in any case you will have a much better A/V for Windows 7!
Download the AVG remover for your version of Windows from here:
Download tools and utilities | AVG UK
BTW your Acer laptop came with Windows Home premium edition pre installed, I think. I see you now have Ultimate, have you recently istalled Ultimate and if so where did the install disc come from?

Hi All in the forum :)
Long time no post (thank goodness!) Got a bit of a problem with my laptop.
For some time now, the screen light has been going out when i first open up. Sometimes it goes out after a few minutes, sometimes not at all. I thought it was due to temperature changes at first, but now i am not so sure.
The problem is that I have to keep shutting down (sleep mode) and then reopening after a few minutes. Once I have done this about half a dozen times, it usually stays on. Does anyone know what the problem could be and how i can fix it? As I am writing this the screen illumination has gone out 4 times and I have had to close up four times :o(.
Everything is still on the screen underneath, so there is nothing wrong with windows as far as I can see.
Please help?????

I was working on my laptop, running XP Home and in my haste I turned it off at the power button on the laptop instead of the proper way, start menu and shutdown. the manual says if it is turned off (the proper way) one should wait at least 5 seconds before turning it back on but as soon as I pressed the power button I panicked and pressed it again, now the screen is so dark , but I can very faintly see the windows logo, so does anyone know what I can do?. I have tried the Fn & F6 keys which are the brightness ones but nothing happens. I am a bit frantic as this is a new computer, and a gift from the family .
Many thanks,

unplug the mains and the battery

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?










Solved!
Go to Solution.

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.

No big deal, if I were you I would run startup repair using the Windows 8 boot menu, which you get to by pushing F8 at startup (I think). Startup repair might work as well. You can also try booting from a Windows 8 boot media and selecting (repair my computer).

I have a somewhat old computer (Dell Inspiron E1405) and I've been having a couple of problems with it lately. It runs very slowly and my screen often blacks out during use, especially during start up. It has been doing this constantly for the past couple of days and the little icon that usually lights up when I have it plugged in isn't lighting up even though the computer says it's plugged in and acknowledges it as such.

Is it fried, or is there something I can do?
 

A:Screen blacks out, icons don't light up

That doesn't sound good. I fear the motherboard could possibly be going out. But that's a dirty word in tech support especially with laptops so lets stay optimistic. You gotta start with a full diagnostic though. Test your ram, processor, memory, and hard drive. If one of these devices are bad, then replace it end of story. If all tests good then at least you aren't looking at spending a lot of $$ for parts or a new computer. Let us know.

Btw I think Dell is pretty good about including diagnostic utility CDs with their new computers. If you cant find it, I would visit the website and look for it there.

A:screen glitches and sometimes will light up but is still black

Welcome to sevenforums.

Fill in all your system specs in your profile, the best that you can.

That sounds like a video card not getting enough power, (or is broken) like if you booted up and forgot to connect a 6pin power connector or PSU could be too weak (broken?) to handle the card.

Or a heat issue on the video card itself, like thermal paste and/or heatsink fan failure.

The monitor itself is still on, totally from it's own power.

I would acquire a Linux distribution LIVE disc and boot to it [makes no changes to hardware at all] and if it runs perfectly for a while, than it's not a power issue. [distrowatch.com for various flavors of Linux, get a Live that fits on CD if download size is issue]

So in summary, probably a video card failure due to lack of power issue or heat, swap the card out for an old one is first thing I would do and clean out case and check all the fans involved.

Replace paste on video card and retest if you don't have a spare old card.
Artic MX-4 is recommended thermal paste, $10 gets you multiple applications of it, I'd replace it anyway.

You able to boot into safe mode?

Hey pretty new here, but I've seen something similar to your problem, and it is usually caused by a loose or only partially connected video cable.

A:hp notebook screen wont light up

Honestly, there isn't much that you can do.

Shine a light on the screen and look to see if the desktop is actually there, just very faint. If so, the screen backlight has failed. Otherwise, it simply sounds like a hardware fault. Most likely with the video chipset. If you have a monitor, you could try connecting it to the laptop video output.

A:acer aspire 5742 goes from black screen to screen ...

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
