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.)

Basically, it depends on what version of Windows you are running and make sure that the laptop has a SATA or PATA connection...

A:Acer aspire hard drive upgrade doesn't work.

You didn't say which OS you have but with Windows 7-up you should be able to create a recovery flash drive and save a system image on a hard drive. Then use the recovery drive to restart the machine with the new disk and when asked, tell it to recover from the system image you saved. ps this works if going from a smaller to an equal or larger disk but not to a smaller one.

Hi guys,

Recently got given a broken Acer Aspire 5536, it's a pretty decent spec laptop but it seems that it doesn't work, the motherboard was broken, I purchased a new one, put it in my case, wired it all up, but the battery in and charger.

I turn it on, fans spin up for about 4 seconds, then everything just stops, and all the lights around the power button are still on, along with this there is a yellow battery light when the battery is in the laptop.

Any ideas what the issue could be?

Hello,how much is duration expectancy before battery must be recharged for this model? I know it depends of what are you working, but my battery is empty after little more than one hour of usual work (internet browsing, no multimedia). I am on balanced power profile and not on full performance. Nothing working in a background. I even installed SSD. This was the case with the first battery when I bought my device five years ago and today I bought new battery with even more capacity and the short time of usage still remains.

A:Acer Aspire 5536 Battery duration

Do you have screen brightness set to 100%? The screen is the biggest drain on the battery.Try calibrating the new battery so it can get a sense of run time.http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11574/~/how-do-i-calibrate-my-battery%3FIf you upgraded to Windows 8, you will have to go through settings to get to Safe mode.Keep it plugged in until you start Safe mode.http://www.digitalcitizen.life/5-ways-boot-safe-mode-windows-8-windows-81

A:My Acer Aspire 5536 won't load Vista

Have you left any CD/DVD's in the drive or a USB flash drive inserted? if so remove them and try again. If you have a card reader check there is nothing in it and if a blank is fitted make sure it is properly inserted.

Will it boot from the OS disc?

Unfortunately, if this is not the case, your hard drive has probably failed. Run this diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer. You will need to use another PC to download the ISO and burn it to a disk.





Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturers diagnostic for ISO CD. Burn the image file to a CD, boot the PC with the disc in the drive and run the diagnostics. You first need to set the CD drive to 1st in the boot order in the Bios setup.

If you do not have an image burner use this free software to make the CD.

Hello,

I am currently running an Acer Aspire 5536 with Windows Vista x64.
I have been having problems with my USB ports for some time now, I have four ports altogether. Two stopped working many months ago and another one a couple of weeks ago, leaving my with a single USB port which is not ideal. I have tried installing the correct driver, the first listed under USB Driver on the following page: http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1

Also, a few months ago, I tried formatting my hardrive and reinstalling my operating system in order to fix this but with no effect. I would appreciate any help and advice on the matter.

Hello guys,

I have just come across a serious issue with my 4 year old Acer Aspire 5536 (I know its old but i like it and it still performs). Anyway when pressing the power button the fan speeds up the lights come on but the computer will not start.

To get my computer to start I need to power on the computer and cover the fan vent for about 10 mins and restart and after i have done that it will run perfectly.

Does anybody have any ideas? I would prefer to fix the issue rather than buy a new laptop

A:Acer Aspire 5536 Bios Won't Boot

You have to cover the fan vent to get it to start ? One of the problems with laptops not starting or overheating is dust clogging up the internal CPU fan causing it to stop and thus overheat and shut down the system which CPUs are designed to do, so I am surprised that by covering the fan vent this allows the laptop to start or am I not understanding your problem ?

Can you hear (or see) the fan running when you power up? It could be dirty or clogged and the laptop may shut down to prevent permanent damage from inadequate cooling.

You can try removing any drives (HDD and DVD), all but 1 stick of memory (try one then the other) and see if it makes any difference. Obviously it won't boot w/o a drive, but if it stays on, that would tell us something.

Hi guys,

I've got my uncle's Acer Aspire 5536 that I am having some trouble with. He said that the laptop just decided not to work.

When I press the power button absolutely nothing happens.
When I plug my charger in, the power button lights up blue and so does the battery light (Orange when was charging, now blue).

There is still nothing happening when I press the power button though.

I've tried taking the battery and charger out and holding the power button for a few minutes then connect the charger, to no avail!

I popped the casing above the keyboard off to make sure that the power button wasn't just stuck. All seems fine.

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you

A:Samsung Spinpoint HN-M101MBB/Z4 1TB cannot be detected

Since it is unlikely that your notebook/laptop has a floppy drive you will have difficulty installing XP on a SATA drive because of the lack of native SATA drivers supplied with the XP installation disk. No supplied drivers, no recognition of the SATA hard drive. During early Setup you are given the opportunity to hit the F6 key to install third party drivers (I.e. SATA/RAID drivers) but XP only recognizes a floppy drive for this process. These SATA drivers would have to come from the laptop's driver support page at their website.

An alternative is to make a slipstream disk which combines your regular XP CD with the appropriate SATA/RAID drivers to allow recognition of your SATA hard drive by Windows Setup. Perform an internet search for the procedure to make such a disk.

Another alternative is to enter the BIOS and set the controller mode to IDE instead of SATA, that is if your laptop BIOS has that option. Many or most modern desktops do but I don't know about laptops. When set to IDE mode, XP doesn't need SATA drivers to continue the installation.

A:acer aspire 5735-hard drive swap

If I understand you correctly I think you mean you want to be able to swap between 2 hard drives on your laptop, please correct me if I'm wrong

In answer to your question, yes you can do this without damaging the operating system on your HDDs but be sure to remove them when the machine is powered down.

I have had experience with replacing HDDs on various laptops including Acers and just wanted to give you the heads up that it can be more difficult than you think to get into the HDD bay; especially if you have to remove the whole plastic case to get to it.

However why do you not simply buy a cheap USB 2.5" caddy and put your smaller drive in there, then boot from it via USB? It would not require you to open up the laptop every time and would in most case be more convenient for both sharing files and quick OS changes. The only downside is that your drive may not have the performance of it's internal counterpart but that shouldn't be too noticeable in most cases.

All-In-One Drive: Hard No in my thumb drive which has the recovery files on it but it states the HDD is Acer Aspire All-In-One Locked Hard Drive: No passw... locked as well Now when I turn on the PC it says to Reboot Acer Aspire All-In-One Locked Hard Drive: No passw... and select proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected device and press any key I've looked all over GOOGLE and all I am finding from other's with the same problem Acer Aspire All-In-One Locked Hard Drive: No passw... is that it is a ploy by ACER to get more money from consumers Supposedly they lock the HDD and force you to PURCHASE a code to unlock the HDD I'd like to know if this is true and if not then I'd like to know how to fix this issue I spent a lot of money on this computer and have not gotten to use it in over a year now because of this issue And of course the warranty I purchased was only available for -year only so it is now expired

Hello everyone.

OK, everything began since the monitor got damaged and was in a bootloop after hibernating Windows. So, we decided to repair the laptop, they said they no longer have parts for the monitor (although it got itself fixed while going home), but they fixed the bootloop. It was a installed with a Windows 8. After I opened "This PC", the 2nd hard drive was missing. My mom asked if they removed it or not, Acer replied that they did not removed the hard drive. I tried installing Windows 7, but the installer only saw the 1st drive. After installing Windows 7, I checked the BIOS (InsydeH20 Setup Utility), but it just really showed up the 1st one. So for now, I am only using 1 drive, and trying to keep my drive to have more space. Is there any fix for it? Please reply.

I have an acer aspire one 532h, and I want to hit it up with some performance upgrades. Now for $50 bucks, i can get a 2gb 800mhz ram,or upgrade the hard drive to a 7200 rpm one. What do you guys think would help most, the ram or the hard drive? Also, does this netbook even support 800mhz ram? And is the hard drive 2.5" or 1.8"?..Thx

Hello. I have an Acer Aspire One AOA150 netbook, and it was showing UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME as a stop error for windows XP. I tried using the Recovery Console to repair the disk errors, but the utility gave me an error saying the drive had one or more unfixable errors. After this, the hard drive was no longer recognized by the BIOS. What can I do to fix this problem? If the problem requires a hard drive replacement, what size hard drive do I need to get (1.8" or 2.5")?

You need a 2 1/2" laptop hard drive either SATA or IDE. Be sure to remove the drive and check for this before you buy a replacement laptop hard drive

A:Acer Aspire hard drive failed... recovery media no longer available?

You can't legally used your Desktop's recovery media on your laptop (also because usually manufacturer's build such medium for a particular piece of hardware, with all drivers etc. pre-installed).

I think you can either choose to run Ubuntu or you can get one of those cheap OEM windows media from e.g. newegg. However, one draw back of this is, I believe you can't get any help from Microsoft directly, if you ever need it.

When you start the computer, immediately after the ACER logo screen, press F8 repeatedly. You should see the Advanced Boot Menu.

Select "Repair Your Computer"

It will scan your OS install and attempt to repair it.
once complete, reboot.

The Windows 8 key is embedded in the BIOS, there is no COA sticker.

I believe you will have to wait for the recovery disk if you want Windows 8 as you will not be able to download a Windows 8 ISO without a retail key. Microsoft really screwed this up and has made no attempts to fix it.

You can do a clean install of a Windows 7 upgrade disc, see here: Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version - Windows 7 Help Forums

Hi,

Not sure if this is the correct sub-section of the forum but couldn't see a more appropriate place.

Any advice appreciated: I'm trying to do a factory restore on my Acer Aspire laptop, as it started crashing, stalling etc. and then eventually just failing to boot up. I've gotten a fair bit of my important stuff off it using a Linux (Knoppix) disc, so am ready to do a factory restore.

However, when I try to do so, I get the error message: "WIMApplyImage Fail. Error: 045D" then I click on "OK" and it says "FAIL to restore image"

Any ideas? I'm worried that my hard drive may be physically damaged. When I listen it's making the odd whirring/clicking noise, but doesn't sound particularly out of the ordinary to me.

Or, on the other hand, does anybody know of any alternative options to the in built Acer factory restore?

Thanks,

Chris

A:(Acer Aspire laptop) Factory Restore failing - hard drive damaged?

Hi Chris. Welcome to TSF.

Have you tried opening up a terminal window and running chkdsk /r on your system? You might also run "sfc /scannow" from within the terminal window as well just to see if perhaps your problems are system-file related.

The clicking noise you're hearing is a bit troubling as it is often an indicator of an impending hard drive failure. I'm glad that you backed up your stuff though. Often that is one thing many people do NOT do and then they are left scrambling for ways to recover their data.

Good day!

Mike

Have you tried to connect your laptop to another monitor or TV?just to be 100% sure it's a laptop issue. i'm not 100% sure but if i remember correctly display port is managed by nvidia card, HDMI is managed by Intel until your run a compatible 3D software (games or programs) that switch to nvidia card.

HDMI cable that came with the monitor nbsp It worked extremely well However when the laptop switches off the monitor for any reason like a reboot or an energy saving setting then the monitor stays black nbsp I have tried many things but the only ones that work seem to be these nbsp Unplugging and re-plugging the HDMI cable This works every time Switching off the monitor for a long time at least several minutes then switching it on again Even disconnecting the monitor's power cord for a minute is not enough to make the laptop send an HDMI signal to the monitor nbsp All other attempts to wake up the monitor yield only spotty or no results like switching the monitor configuration in Windows Windows key P or the equivalent Fn F I can always activate the laptop's built-in display that way but not the external monitor I also tried changing the monitor input from HDMI to Auto and back and various other actions to no avail nbsp I checked the Windows Intel video driver which turned out to be up to date nbsp I changed to another HDMI cable same problem nbsp I have not yet tried to switch to the NVidia graphics adapter because I'm not sure how to do that If I could wake up the monitor that way I could then switch back to the integrated Intel graphics which I almost always use and that might be a viable workaround while waiting for the defect to be repaired perhaps in the video driver nbsp I have upgraded Windows from Home to Professional which made no difference to this problem nbsp Any ideas are welcome I am pondering the thought of returning the monitor but a I like it and b it is quite possible that the defect is in the laptop and the next monitor would have nbsp the same problem At first sight it is the laptop that causes the problem because it is obviously not sending HDMI output to the monitor nbsp I am also pondering the thought of adding an HDMI switch to allow me to wake up the monitor by switching the HDMI line For that I would have to identify and buy a pure HDMI pass-through switch which I find nbsp difficult so far It would be a stupid solution though nbsp I read that this is a widespread and long-lived problem Intel has an ongoing discussion thread about it that has been running for several years but no solution nbsp Any ideas are welcome nbsp A related question I would like to try the DisplayPort output hoping that it works better than HDMI but that would occupy the USB-C socket which I plan to use for other purposes Is it possible to use that connector for multiple purposes at the same time Is there a special external hub for that

Have you tried to connect your laptop to another monitor or TV?just to be 100% sure it's a laptop issue. i'm not 100% sure but if i remember correctly display port is managed by nvidia card, HDMI is managed by Intel until your run a compatible 3D software (games or programs) that switch to nvidia card.

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

Based on what i have read from the forums, the Apire Nitro 592G seems to support the Samsung 950 pro. However, I am not sure about the Aspire Nitro 572G. My thought is that since they are both Nitro series with Skylake processors (Acer advertised on their website that the Nitro series support NVME ssd), both 592G and 572G models should support the 950 pro right? Can anyone confirm this? I am planning on buying the 950 pro.

How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.


- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Please run these two tests after updating the drivers

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

I tried to mute the volume, but it wasn't changing. I had to reboot and whenever I rebooted none of my usb ports seem to be working. I tried the mouse and the keyboard. I tried different ports. I tried three different keyboards. None of my usb ports are working. Please help.

I thought about just trying to take the tower out and blow the dust out of it. Sometimes it's as simple as that. Though it did reboot just fine. I just couldn't use my keyboard to sign in to windows.

Hi!  I am having a hard time trying to find the correct Driver for my Acer Aspire X3470.  Currently I am using the standard PS/2 Keyboard to input commands.  But I do not want to use that Keyboard and I want to use my USB Keyboard. I tried everything to get the right driver for it but I am having no luck at all... is there anyone that could possibly help me identify this problem¿ 

A:USB Keyboard Drivers do not work Acer Aspire X3470

Hi rnoctus83, The keyboard should have an installation CDC for the driver or once you connected the system should look for the driver automatically, i would suggest to go directly to the manufactures page of your keyboard and look for the driver and installed manually and if it works that way.

Only thing I haven't tried is flashing BIOS but from what I read that is only necessary on older modle Apire One's... Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance!!!

Hi!  I am having a hard time trying to find the correct Driver for my Acer Aspire X3470.  Currently I am using the standard PS/2 Keyboard to input commands.  But I do not want to use that Keyboard and I want to use my USB Keyboard. I tried everything to get the right driver for it but I am having no luck at all... is there anyone that could possibly help me identify this problem¿ 

A:USB Keyboard Drivers do not work Acer Aspire X3470

Hi rnoctus83, The keyboard should have an installation CDC for the driver or once you connected the system should look for the driver automatically, i would suggest to go directly to the manufactures page of your keyboard and look for the driver and installed manually and if it works that way.

Hey!
I have an Acer that spontaneously decided I no longer needed to play games. Everything else works perfectly fine. It's been doing this for the past few weeks and I've done all that I can. I'm no tech wizard by any means and I need some help. Pretty much it'll open to the load screen for a few moments then disappear back to my home screen. Any ideas on what it could be and what I can do?

These are the specs:
Acer Aspire V5 Touch with Windows 8.1
Aspire V5-V561PG-9683
Model number: Z5WV2

If you need more info let me know, I still have everything for it.
 

A:Acer Aspire issues; Games no longer work

If you are talking about the games that are loaded by a app. You will need to uninstall the app. Then reinstall the app. I have no ideal why this happens . But I have seen it more then once.

I have inherited an old Acer Aspire Laptop It originally came with windows Vista bit installed I've nuked that and installed Windows x Ultimate I managed to find all the relevant drivers and there is nothing flagged in device manager as having a problem Everything appears don't work? Blue Acer Aspire Media 5920 keys to work with the exception Acer Aspire 5920 Blue Media keys don't work? of the row of Media Keys down the right hand side of the keyboard right above the DVD drive The key with the little person symbol works when pressed but all the remaining keys that are lit up blue don't These keys are the play pause stop etc They brighten up for a second if you press on one of them but don't actually do anything in Media player Media center or Acer Arcade I'd be happy if they just worked in Windows Media Player Non of the Acer empowering apps are compatible with Windows and are not installed The only exception is the Acer Launcher App which allows me to program the Blue e key and the e-mail etc keys that are on the left hand side of the keyboard There is another set of media keys on the actual keyboard that are accessed using the Fn key that work It would just be nice to be able to use the other ones that are lit up and easy to see in the dark I sometimes like to lay down and listen to some music with the lights off and its a bit of a pain trying to use the other keys to stop or pause the music in low light conditions

A:Acer Aspire 5920 Blue Media keys don't work?

thats the only problem with older tech and newer os. ive got a laptop that i put windows 7 on, but there are no compatible audio drivers for its chipset that work with windows 7.

That said, with my friends acer that i fixed and installed windows 7 on, to get the media keys on his working i tried downloading the drivers for a newer acer computer with hot keys and it worked.

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

Any ideas appreciated.

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.
