Q: Acer Aspire monitor problems

Hi, I have been having some technical difficulty's lately with my Acer ASPIRE's monitor. I will be watching a video, doing work or making one of my games when my monitor will go to black-and-grey lines. So far, the only way to postpone the problem is (Once Problem has occurred) to hit the CTRL-ALT-DEL keys, which will bring to the Windows 7 Options Menu. Then just close that... But it will happen again and the fix is rendered useless I then have to restart my laptop. Any ideas? Please comment! ​

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.

I think this may be a graphics card issue. Please tell me your system specs (CPU, Graphics card, OS - 32 or 64bit).

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating. Any thoughts?

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.

Hello,

I have a Acer Aspire 5732z Laptop. I recently had to recover the laptop using the Acer eRecovery Manager supplied with the laptop. I have the laptop up and running fine but Windows 7 or Acer haven't supplied the correct driver for the monitor and is instead using the 'Generic PnP Monitor' driver I assume comes as standard from Windows 7.

I have tried re-installing the supplied drivers from the Acer eRecovery Manager (no driver for monitor) but tried anyway. I have tried un-installing the driver with a restart in hope it would update itself, no luck. And I have searched the Acer website and Google for a driver that would work, this, without success.

I don't seem to be able to contact Acer Support either, it gives me all sorts of messages back!

Any ideas please guys as I seemed to have reached a dead end.

so I just did an OS format on my Aspire 4930..
I formatted Vista to XP because of obvious reasons.

but, after I installed all my drivers proper,
everytime at startup, my monitor would blink once to black,
but only about one second, even less..

it would not blink again for the rest of the session though.
but, when I uninstalled the VGA Intel driver to see if it had any effect,
the monitor didn't blink. it seems that the driver is the problem, yeah?

but I tried installing two versions and they're just the same.
what I want to ask is:

1) will it have any long-term effect?
2) is the monitor adjusting to anything; refresh rate, etc?
3) can I repair this?

thanks very much in advance..

Hello, I have an external monitor with 120Hz refresh rate connected over HDMI port to my notebook. I can not properly configure monitor settings, because it shows me only values up to 60Hz. Is there any way to get 120Hz on HDMI video output? Is it possible to disable intergrated Intel GPU and use only NVidia Geforce GTX 960M as default? Thanks for any ideas, Milo

A:Acer aspire 1691 display/monitor issue

If you can still make out the desktop, then it sounds like the backlight has failed. So a hardware replacement is in order.

As for the issue with the TV, it could simply be a resolution issue. Ensure you are using a resolution and refresh rate that the TV accepts. TV's with VGA input, often have very limited acceptable resolutions. Check the User Manual.

A better test, would be to simply connect the laptop to a true computer monitor and see what happens.

You should try it with an external monitor and see if it happens with it as well. The 8400M GS may be defective, many had issues with bad solder joints and overheating issues breaking them.

Hi folks

Can't get sony e500 crt monitor to work with acer aspire x1430 desktop PC, win 7. At boot up I see "starting windows" etc then a permanent blank screen. PC works fine with the thin screen monitor. I can't easily get the monitor [very heavy] and the pc to an internet connection although I am online with another pc. setting are now 64. OK hz / 60 hz on the monitor firmware, resolution is 12x1024

i think the graphics card is on board, anyway its definitely a radeon hd 6300 series. when i connect the crt monitor to get the pc running some of the setting that i would have looked at are not present. also i cant find the video card settings, but then i am completely new to win 7

My friend has an Acer Aspire One netbook. He bought an external monitor to use when not travel. Everything was working fine with the external monitor until recently. For the past few weeks, after 2 hours or so of work, his external monitor will suddenly black out. He can press Fn + F5 all he wants and nothing will work. The display on the netbook is fine but the external monitor will not come back. The only way he can get it working again is if he reboots. What can cause this problem? The monitor was working fine for a few hours? Is this a memory problem? The netbook has 1 gig of RAM.

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.

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)

i do not know what is causing "my computer" and "control panel" stop open when i click is infinite times.

is there any command to just open "my computer" and "control panel" without click from start and just type into CMD.

Hi riolaw. Open up a command prompt window (START>RUN> type CMD and then type "sfc /scannow" at the prompt. When it's done with the verification, reboot and see if things are back to normal. If not, we'll look into other options.

A:Acer ASPIRE 4736G problems !!!

If this computer came into my shop, i would start by checking a few different things. no particular order, but definately one at a time.

*depending on company policy you may need to run a hardware diagnostic before attempting the following repairs

bios update : make sure you have the latest updates from your manufacture
check power control settings
ensure cooling system (vents,fans,exhaustducts) ect are free of dust
make sure windows it up to date
check startup autorun entries for each user

if the problem still persists after investigating, run a hardware diagnostic.

once you verify the hardware is functioning properly, you can go further if the problem still persists.

Hi I'm having difficulty upgrading to Windows 10. Late 2015 Aspire VN7 591G.My C Drive appears to be be filling up yet I only have Windows 8.1 saved  there. Trying to update to Windows 10 it takes hours (terrible broadband connection) before eventually aborting and message " not enough space on destination drive". I'm totally confused and frustrated- C Drive has only 8.33GB free of 44.7GB. I only have Windows 8.1 installed, I've removed all bloatware and other uneccessary programmes/apps yet it just seems to shrink on a daily basis. I previously had to do a clean install as the C Drive became full.Any solutions in simple  "dummy" terms? Thanks

Hi,

I have a Acer Aspire, which had a boot issue, so it wasn't able to boot correctly into Windows Vista Home Basic.

I ran the Acer Recovery by pressing F11 at boot time. And it was able to recover and boot into Windows Vista.

However after the automatic Acer Launch Install and a some smaller Windows Updates, the computer have the same boot problem as before.

I have tried to run Windows Vistas Startup recovery thingy, without luck.

Have anyone faced this problem before or know what may be causing it?

Well I've got this problem and couldn't find any solution in here that helped me.

I've formatted the C disk where windows 8 was on and then tried to install windows 7 from with a boot USB.
Did didn't work. I've tried literally everything.

1. I've the right boot order.
2. I've turned of secure boot.
3. I've tried it with a DVD.
4. The USB and DVD boot both work on my laptop.

It looks like whatever I do I always get this text in my screen:

"Reboot and Select proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected device and press a key"

Has anyone any idea what this can be? It gets really frustrating that this PC is unresponsive to any change and will not boot anything. Much thanks for the help in advance.

It sounds like your boot media is not formatted correctly. If you have UEFI BIOS then flash stick must be formatted using only Option 1 of UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows
and must then be booted only as a UEFI device. Delete all partitions to clear formatting and install.

If problems persist report back any BIOS settings related to UEFI, CSM, Legacy BIOS, Secure Boot, and BIOS Boot Priority order. Pictures will help. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums - Windows 7 Forums

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

Hello I just bought an Aspire XC-605 with a core i5 4460.It came with some Linux version but I directly installed Windows 7 pro (x64) since I had an unused license.It works very well but I can't use any virtualization. All I get is that VT-X is supported but not turned on?BIOS is updated to P11.B1L, latest version seems to be P21.A4 but it fails to update. Does the L on the end indicate Linux only? Can I force P21.A4 or will the system die if I try?

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.

Support/recovery disks-USB media must be created by user in the first days of use (normally a pop-up/reminder is triggered from system)windows key are embedded on BIOS, so it will automatically read by windows 10 or 8 if version matches (8 home- 10 home; 10 PRO - 8 PRO) Reading your report, it looks more an HDD issue but...can also be an OS issue too, as you mentioned. if you need a windows 8 media to boot and have an HDD/OS check:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/create-reset-refresh-media

A:Acer Aspire 3690 problems

Hello Sarah. It's the safe start menu that you're seeing, not the BIOS. Since your system is only two days old, I suggest the best thing to try is a restore to factory condition.

Consult the documentation for your laptop, but the key combination to restore factory state is probably Alt + F10. Double-check and make sure the safe start screen does not offer factory restore anywhere on the screen. Alternatively, did you make recovery disks initially whan prompted?

If you restore the system, and you have the same problem again, I'd suspect the hard drive has a fault, and it would be best to return the laptop for warranty attention.

Well just recently I bought this laptop about 2-3 weeks ago and i now have encountered a few problems the first problem is my sound. I was playing half life 2 and my sound was working great then i exited and now my sound is like a robot and i tried reinstalling my drivers and that didn't work and I really don't know what else to try.

My second problem is that this laptop came with Nvidia Geforce Go 6100 and its supposed to be 128mb of memory but as i was just looking at my bios (switching my boot sequence) I found that there it said it was only 64mb so i just started my computer then went on a whole bunch of hardware monitoring websites and the all say that its only 64mb

laptop Specs:

AMD Turion 64 2.20 ghz
512mb of DDR2 - 5300
NVIDIA Geforce go 6100
120gm HDD

A:Acer Aspire R13 (R7-371T) Active Pen problems.

I sent my previous unit back and got a new one from microsoftstore. It seems the problems I had were unit specific. This new one works fine, the touchpad in the last laptop clearly had a physical problem since it wobbled and didn't recognize multi-gesture. I am happy with this one, it has a updated synaptics driver, not the newest one (there is a newer Synaptics driver on Acer website for this laptop which still doesn't install) but it works. Contacted tech support, and asked why the updates don't install it seems this model is still a work in progress. They are updating drivers, power managments software etc. Acer's Active pen works fine in ONENOTE, because the application rejects capacitive touch and only works with digitizer input. but in other apps palm rejection is not working. I'm going to exchange my pen as well and see if the problem is with the pen or not.

Hey I have a proble, with my screen. Everytime I close it I guess it goes to sleep. I open it back up and the screen is black. I press the power buton, any key, or Fn+F4 and it still doesn't come up. I've tried changing video display. Nada. I just found out that when I click space or back space. It makes the ping sound. So I know it's running just, not showing anything.

Just got it, it came pre-installed with Linpus Linux Lite so I installed Windows 8.1 on it. I used the CD that came with the PC to install the drivers. Everything worked well, but sadly, the WiFi driver just does not work. It does connect to my router, but once I try to load something, it instantly goes to limited connectivity, disallowing me to do anything. I am able to access the router panel, but the router isn't the problem here - everything works well on my Android phone. Any help?

It seems that my Bitlocker drive encryption service, window installers, windows update, background intelligent transfer service, cryptographic services keep stopping. I never have any updates for windows or Acer. I do realize that there are not update every day. However, i never show an update at all. My Acer Aspire R7-371-T is not detecting updates or something. I went to Microsoft support and they remotely reinstalled Windows 10 and there was over 10 updates, unfortunately after that it was back to no updates again. I am so sick of having to reinstall and then get all my apps back and whatever else was deleted from having to do a reinstall of win10.Plus when i went and posted my issue (like I am doing now here) the replys I have gotten make me feel as if I am crazy or stupid.Can someone please help me?

Hi all,

This is my first but definitely not my last post so please bear with me if I've put this in the wrong section.

I have two Acer Aspire x1700 systems and both seem to have the same symptoms: They freeze within windows. It's not an operating system problem as I've done fresh re-installs as part of my troubleshooting. It's not faulty hard drives because I've run stress tests and they've passed all of the diags.

I BELIEVE it is a heat problem but I'm looking for a second opinion. Does anyone have any suggestions? These systems have never been used before so it isn't a virus or malware.

Also, curiously, the bios is resetting after rebooting and I'm getting a bad checksum error. I'm not sure if that's related. I'm stumped. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A:Acer Aspire V3-551G Fan and Overheating Problems

I have a similar problem. my fan makes some kind of croaking noise jst before it starts to spin whenever i put on the system, and intermittently later on. I advise you don't open your system until you've exhausted other options. my own system is jst about 6 to 8 months old, so i am not looking forward to changing my fan anytime soon. have you tried looking through the base of your system to check for dust? you should search online. there are various supposed fixes worth checking out. i tried installing speedfan, which didn't detect my fans. as i couldn't risk opening my system to check the fan myself, which involved removing the keyboard and motherboard, i took it to a technician. came back, and the fan is still making that sound(incidentally, it didn't make the sound at the technician's), in addition to a new one i suspect is from the hard drive. In essence, if you later have to take it apart, make sure it's a real professional who knows what he is doing. And whatever works for you, please update this discussion. I'd like to check it out on my system. also try to run a hardware diagnostic. haven't had any success with that myself, but that's because i can't seem to find a software that works for acer. i jst opened a new discussion for that topic and hope i'll get a new reply soon.

You have several options... Do you have another user logon on this laptop?  If yes, log on with that user, then create a new account for your wife, and copy over the data from the old user to the new account. If no other user, then either find someone with Microsoft DaRT software which includes an option to reset the password, or you will have to do a complete restore back to manufacturer's defaults.  Think you get to that by holding the <Alt> key then hit <F10> key whilst machine is booting up immediately after switch on. Hope that helps...

Hi there .. Try the following Go to BIOS setup. Go to graphics options and select discrete instead of switchable... I just hope your Bios update has not changed the settings in the BIOS ..

 Hello and HELP !!                            Is there anybody with any idea on how to get past the password lock screen on the above computer ? Nothing sinister - just a forgotten password. I bought one for the wife for her birthday but have been unable to show her how to use it because i forgot the password i used on set up.   Hoping for help thanks 

A:ACER ASPIRE SWITCH 10 - Password problems

You have several options... Do you have another user logon on this laptop?  If yes, log on with that user, then create a new account for your wife, and copy over the data from the old user to the new account. If no other user, then either find someone with Microsoft DaRT software which includes an option to reset the password, or you will have to do a complete restore back to manufacturer's defaults.  Think you get to that by holding the <Alt> key then hit <F10> key whilst machine is booting up immediately after switch on. Hope that helps...

I can see all the wireless connections there but when I try to connect it, I cant describing cannot connect to that network.So, I used my phone to open wifi hotspot and let my laptop connect it, but my laptop still cant connect my phone wifi.The problem might be in my laptop, not in the wifi router, I thinkThen, I checked my network adapter in device manager to make sure it is working properly and it also shows the driver software is up to date as well.Could you please help me solve my problem?Really appreciate it!!!

The very begining of my problems began on June st It started after I turned my UAC off to install the sandbox for the Crysis demo When I restarted my computor would stay stuck at the loading screen Sometimes if I let it load long enough it would lead to a black screen At this time I was able to get into my computor in Safe Mode I called Acer Customer Support and they told me to reformat my computor I had some guy look at my computor over the internet and he started some harddrive repair thing and after I restarted again it would not start in Safe Mode either So on June nd I did my first reformat Around June th my computor froze after I closed down SAMP The Acer Power Technology was not responding and nothing was working except for my talk button on Ventrillo I turned off my computor and while trying to start up it back up it got stuck on the loading screen again I went into Safe Mode a with Consistent M5641 Problems Acer Aspire few times but soom Safe Mode wouldn't work and I did Consistent Problems with Acer Aspire M5641 another reformat Sometime near the end of June and the begging of July the Acer Power Technology was not responding and I thought I would have to do another reformat I just left the computor on and left it alone for a bit without restarting I think the computor eventually restarted on its own and started working again But a few days later on July th the computor started to have problems again But this time the problem was different The computor would start fine slightly slow but whenever I right-clicked on anything my whole computor would freeze and I would have to restart I gave up then and took my computor in to Geek Squad This whole time Acer Customer Support was almost no help and told me to send it back to them They held onto this computor for almost weeks They were unable to find a problem with my computor One guy told me to send the computor back to Acer But a woman there said that the OS needed to be reinstalled so they decided to reinstall the OS I got the computor back last friday Four days later the problem occured again This time I was playing Crysis Wars while downloading a game I also and Ventrilo open and Chat open in Ventrilo There were no problems until some guy put a comment into chat and it tabbed out of Crysis and put it into a windowed mode I tried to put it into fullscreen and close the download and my computor ended up freezing I restarted and again my computor would freeze at the loading screen But this time my computor would eventually load to a blue screen saying STOP c Registry File Failure The Registry cannot load the hive file SystemRoot System Config SOFTWARE or its log or alternative It is corrupt absent or not writable Collecting data for crash dump Initializing disk for crash dump Beginning dump of physical memory Dumping physical memory to disk Physical memory dump complete Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance Now I am stuck I called Geek Squad and they said to bring the computor back in for checking which would probably take them forever to do I called Acer and they told me to take out the new components I put in Graphic Card Power Supply and put in the old one's and send it back to them The problem with this was that I had put in a new graphics card and power supply Christmas While putting in these components I messed up some connections so my computor wouldn't start I took it into Circuit City while it was still around and had the Firedog guys put everything in properly Most likely I will mess up trying to do this and to have Geek Squad do it will cost per piece But this is my only option left so this is what I will probably do I'm posting this here because I am wondering if anyone knows what is going on with my computor Why is this happening What do I need to do to fix this The Acer Support and Geek Squad are no longer able to help me unless I send the computor in Here are my system specs according to my xfire Manufacturer AC...

A:Consistent Problems with Acer Aspire M5641

What you've been told is "sorta" true - but it's gotta be taken with a grain of salt (not knowing exactly how your system is built).

I'd suggest providing us with the information in this post ( http://www.techsupportforum.com/1871981-post2.html ) before you go any further.

Depending on the cause of this error, you may be able to use System Restore to restore a copy of the Registry from before this error started happening.

My new Aspire keeps losing its date & time display (bottom RHS of screen).  Its changing several times a day - so far today I've had 20/2, 23/2 and 1/3.  Also, since allowing a Windows update yesterday it loses its internet connection if left idle for an hour or so.  I had the date & time problem many yers ago on a tower computer and it turned out to be a motherboard problem.  Any advice would be appreciated.

normally wrong time and date appears on old computers with low charge CMOS battery. Since your device is new, i suggest you to call Acer support service.

A:Acer Aspire V5-573G UEFI problems??

Hello, Well I see that some of these problems are described by others as well on windows 10 and different notebooks.A few solutions have been suggested but I am not sure if these will help you in any way. First, one of the options was to disable fast startup and try to see if it solves your problem.(mainly the shutdown issue)Go in power options, and select from left "Chose what the power buttons do". Here click on "change settings that are curently unavailable" and uncheck fast startup, and see if it will solve the problem. Another idea was to disable hibernate for windows. You can do it in the same way as described above but uncheck hibernate or run the this command in an elevated command prompt(run cmd as administrator) powercfg /h off.The last suggestion was to turn on hybrid sleep on your current power plan. Go to power options, and for your current power plan click "change plan settings". Here click on "change advanced power settings" and look for sleep in the new window. Open the node and at "allow hybrid sleep" select ON. I am not sure if any of these will solve the issue but you can give a try.

I have a problem with my keyboard, related to keys: s,d,g,h,m and caps lock. Sometimes they don't work. In a bit amount of time and after I pressed other keys randomly, they start to work again.
There are other 2 closed posts on this forum, same problem, same keys.

Useful information:
-my computer is a laptop acer aspire 5943G
-im using a 64 bit version of windows 7

Thanks for the help
 

A:Acer aspire 5943g keyboard problems

Chances are that the keyboard contacts are wearing out or it is full of dirt, try turning the PC upside down and gently tapping the keyboard, you may be suprised how much dirt comes out of it. You could also get a can of compressed air to blow out all the dirt, but if nothing helps a new keyboard may be the only solution.
