hi all I have 2 acre aspire laptops one is a acer aspire 5552 and the second one is 5551-a both of them has the black screen of death I have tried a external monitor tried new ram striped Botham down and reconnected everything back to the boards also have removed the battery and held the power button for 1 min + reconnected the battery and power cable with no success any help would be great .
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.)
Trying to fix this computer for a friend. on Start up it asks which OS would you like to use? There is only one start up, can I remove the older listed one.
the webcam microphone will not work anymore, the video quality is fine ?? if i plug a useb web cam in, it works fine, audio and picture.
for 4 days I have been installing, un installing , updating and then even putting older versions of driver in to see if they would work.
I have no hair left too pull out so here I am hat in hand , asking for any advise , links or info,
I just installed indows 10 hoping that would cure the problem.
There is not even a jack input for a microphone??? only for headphones!!!
I have just gotten this thing. I decided to update the drivers since it seems that they are all at least 6 months old. The Acer updater says that there aren't any updates for it, but I browsed the net and techspot driver site and found a few. Namely realtek HD Audio driver. Found some BIOS updates as well. However I can't find the chipset update and I am not really sure about the rest being correct.
I am not used to laptops and don't want to install the wrong drivers and ruin it all.
So my question is: "where do You look for the drivers?" Can you share some links?
The support page on Acer's website has no chipset updates at all.
I would personally stick to the Acer supported drivers, unless there is a specific reason you need to look elsewhere, like for example, something not working as it should.
laptop boots up, but the screen is 90% dark, tried removing battery and ram, didnt work, tried recovery still not working, can anyone p[lease help
Looks like the inverter has gone but try pressing the Fn key plus all the top row F keys one at a time, it's possible the brightness was reduced by that sort of key combo.

Hey guys, I'm pretty much a noob at this.
Long story short... My acer aspire 5552 will not stay on. When I turn it on I have to press on a certain area if not multiple areas. Before I had opened it and cleaned out the fan it use to overheat like crazy it used to hit about 90 degrees I'm wondering if that has ruined something?
Thanks in advance
First of all. Why do you have to hit certain area or for that matter. Multiple areas. It may still be running to hot. Or something was damage when you put in back togather. If it is running to hot . It may need new thermal pads.

Dear All, Have been facing problem connecting to the wifi router. Have recently upgraded to windows 10. Microsoft says hardware supplier shall provide drivers for wifi adapter. Kindly help with new drivers for Windows 10. Yours truly,[email protected]
"Microsoft says hardware supplier shall provide drivers for wifi adapter."That would be if the hardware supplier offered and supported Windows 10 in that laptop.I'm sorry to say that Acer only Supports 32 & 64 bit Windows 7'There are no official drivers for the Aspire 5551 for Windows 8,8.1 or 10.

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 5552 laptop. It has been working perfectly until I installed Windows 7 updates then it started acting up. I decided to use the recovery disks to roll it back to factory settings. That has seemed to correct the problem except that, between the welcome screen and the actual desktop, I get a black screen with 8 blue dots in the upper left hand of the screen. Have never had them before the recovery. They don`t seem to be causing a problem as the laptop just continues on and works fine. Has anyone ever seen this before? Just a little concerned. Thanks for any help.

That is what those messages are basically telling you. It hasn't found a hard drive
Remove and reseat the hard drive and see if they go away.
You may be able to boot from a CD or USB and test the hard drive if it is recognised.
I've got a friends computer and she says it will charge when its not being used but not whilst being used, when she plugs the charger in the blue power light flashes, but does not charge, can anyone help?
My Nephews laptops battery ran low and required charging. When the charger is plugged into the laptop the orange 'charging' light illuminates for approximately 6 seconds then, goes out for a further 6. This repeats continuously whilst the battery remains flat and the machine will not power up.
I have checked the output from the charger which is constant although I have no means, at present , of ascertaining the actual output values.
If there is anyone with any hints or clues I should be most grateful' Thanks.
So the laptop will not turn on at all? Does it act the same if you remove the battery? If not the the adapter may be faulty, the DC jack in the laptop may have broken, or there's a motherboard failure in the laptop.
Testing with a known good and compatible power adapter would be the next step.
How old is the laptop, is it still under warranty?
My Acer aspire 5552 notebook shut itself down without warning and now it won't boot up. I am getting a blue power light and for a few secs the fan runs then seems to run very slow and I hear the CD drive trying to start but then it stops and I just have a black screen. I've been searching the internet the last few days for a solution but not found one yet . Here's what I have tried .....
* I removed battery and power cord and pressed power button for 30secs.
* I pressed Fn & ESC added power cord then pressed power button. The fan ran faster but still nothing only black screen.
* I've tried updating bios but won't even read the USB stick.
* Tried HDMI cable with TV still nothing.
* tested CMOS battery that's OK.
Are there any other suggestions please or is it unfixable
I am having trouble with the mouse and text size on a new acer aspire 5552 7803 laptop. Sometimes when I am tpying the text suddenly gets huge. At first I thought I was hitting the ctrl button by mistake but I am not. It is possible to make the text larger or smaller by using the arrow on the mouse, but this happens when I don't take my finger off the mouse immediately after I hit a key while typing. It is driving me mad. Does anyone have a solution ?
Thank you very much.
Hi siobhanmacmahon and welcome to TSF.
Have you tried turning off the touch pad, so that just the mouse is in control and that there are no conflicts with it. Sometimes you may accidently brush over the pad with a sleeve or the cable etc and cause an issue. I think that pressing Fn + F7 together will turn it off and pressing Fn + F7 again will turn it on.
See if that helps.
it has been in the attic it colled it 'alittle' dust...it charges well it seems the charger led comes on....BUT it wont power on it tried esd<only so far also the power LED wont light up?..please help it would be apricieated.
Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Although dust is an issue heat generated in an attic is a bigger issue since it is not a climate controlled environment.
It has worked since I bought it around 6 weeks ago but for the last week or so the connection has failed randomly. Yesterday it stopped working totally. The windows diagnostic report says that Windows could not detect a properly installed network adaptor- and to re-install the driver.How do I do this?Thanks
Hi Mills,1. Get to Device Manager(Hold Windows Key & then tap letter "X")2. Under device manager check if you find any other Devices or unknown devices,. if yes you may need another computer to download the files from acersupport.com3. If Not expand network adapters, check if you see the Wireless adapter, Right click uninstall & restart the unit.4. If the Device is not detected underOthers / Unknown devices / network adapter, please contact Acer as it is a suspected Hardware Failure.http://community.acer.com/t5/Legacy-Laptops-and-Netbooks/Acer-Aspire-Acer-Aspire-Switch-10-will-not-connect-to-wireless/td-p/344379/jump-to/first-unread-message
hi there everyone,
can anyone help,
Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180
i have these two computers and would like to know witch one i should upgrade,
wich one is the better computer- (
and when decided
what should i upgrade
and what are the best parts to use,
or the best way to do it,
and how do i know what parts are compatible
im not looking to spend a fortune,
but i dont mind spending a bit, as long as its worth it,
First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.
Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.
What is the difference between these 2 Notebooks??? Acer Aspire R 11 R3-131T-P7HAhttp://www.amazon.com/Acer-R3-131T-P7HA-Signature-Edition-Windows/dp/B014LGK1P2 Acer Aspire R 11 R3-131T-P344http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-R3-131T-P344-11-6-inch-Notebook/dp/B012IBOCR0 The specs seem the same. Only difference I can tell is about $50 on amazon. Thanks.
Well the P344 is blue. I have one that is hotrodded a bit (8GB, Samsung EVO SSD) - original 500GB is now in a USB 3.0 external - and I consider it the best of all my portable deviceshttp://community.acer.com/t5/S-and-R-Series-Laptops/Acer-Aspire-R-11-R3-131T-P7HA-vs-Acer-Aspire-R-11-R3-131T-P344/td-p/417230/jump-to/first-unread-message
The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.
i need a very quick reply please
Quick reply!!! Save your data and restore back to factory. Always have a back up image of your OS on a external drive for next time you have this problem!!http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/acer-aspire-5742-intelcore-i3-380m-goes-black-after-acer-logo-loads-984193.html

I restarted my computer like normal and for whatever reason the computer is now stuck at the Acer boot screen. I try to press DEL to enter Setup and I even tried pressing F12 to go into the Boot Setup, but for whatever reason the computer does not respond to anything.
To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.
Stuff to know:
- I have a wireless mouse and keyboard being used on that desktop.. Should I perhaps try to plug in a corded mouse and keyboard?
- I'm running on Windows 7 Ultimate.
My system is roughly months old I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to home premium There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to Acer M3203 Windows software Acer's upgrade and Aspire 7 deep hibernation The only way to wake it was to unplug Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software the power from the tower I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers to finally reinstalling everything No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer I just got it back from Acer's repair depot They had to replace the motherboard hard drive and fans on the system They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold the hibernation thing started again It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory Now it seems stable running Vista I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell Is it me or is Acer systems flakey Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows without having to format every week I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly Sometimes it won't even turn on Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows
Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.
The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

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 !!!
Hi Brett ... Welcome to Seven Forums ... Does the Webcam show in the Device Manager ? ...
Do you have any errors in the Device Manager ...?

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?

Try booting to Memtest86 you can burn a CD and I think it can also be run from a USB bootable flash drive. This will test your memory for problems and also let you know that the hardware in general will run (except the hard drive which is ignored at this stage.If the memory is good, then boot to your hard drive mfg's utility or Seatools from Seagate (DOS version) the same as Memtest but it tests your hard drive to see if it is just the drive that you cannot install on.If the memory and hard drive tests OK then you may just need to delete all current partitions on the hard drive before trying to install.If the memory does not test good, try cleaning the contacts on the memory with a soft pencil eraser and snapping them in and out 5 or 6 times to also burnish the slot's contacts. Then try memtest again on one stick at a time in case one stick is bad, swap and try again.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.http://www.computing.net/answers/windows-8/acer-aspire-e15-will-not-boot-past-acer-logo/1671.html

To start off, this laptop has been horrible since the day I got it. I can't even believe how slow it is; it lags doing even the simplest tasks.That aside; I was prompted to update an AMD Catalyst Radeon (something like that) software, so I did. The screen went black and nothing happened for almost 10 hours.I eventually decided to turn off the power. Now that I turn it back on it's just stuck on "Acer explore beyond limits" screen.It has been like this for days now. I've tried turning it on and off again several times. It's just stuck at that screen.What do I do? How do I fix this? I need this computer for school.
Boot pressing F2 to enter BIOS, check if your HDD/SSD is listed on BIOS informations page. if you press Alt+F10 are you able to enter recovery? Which windows OS version is installed?http://community.acer.com/t5/E-and-M-Series-Laptops/Acer-Aspire-ES-15-ES1-520-3441-stuck-at-quot-Acer-explore-beyond/td-p/428427/jump-to/first-unread-message

I finally found a soluation after months of wondering why this is happening. It's my Virgin Media connection, the modem/router as when I connected to my phones wifi, teethering, Acer Care Center instantly updated so something within Virgin Medias network is blocking connectivity. I did try the Virgin Media's router as cause by diabling firewall etc. but with no joy I gave up but didn't try another connection until just now with tethering where as stated problem is sorted. I will report this to Virgin Media and post back anything relevant to this.

I have a new Notebook Acer Aspire E 15. When I wanted to download its manual from the Acer website (http://www.acer.com/ac/de/DE/content/drivers) there was no such Notebook listed, respectively I could not found one. I filled in the series number of my Notebook and the name, make shown was Aspire E5-573.
What does that mean? What is the sense of it using completely different names for the same Notebook?
My Acer Aspire 5612z, Dual-core celeron, 2GB ram, vista home premium 32bit, has two separate problems. Screen is filled with vertical red blue and white vertical stripes, if I tap the screen frame then the picture is ok for 30 mins or so, then goes stripey again. (Poss fault on FL board?).
Second, Laptop boots, 20 seconds, to Acer screen then stops.
Can only switch off power from that point.
Tapping the screen you could have a loose connection from the LCD Panel to the MOBO connector, but you see if you did the screen would dim out. In your case you have the the same issues that tell me that the LCD Panel is faulty. If this unit is still under warranty then have ACER service the unit or take it to ACER dealer who can either send it back to ACER or they can order the panel and replace it for you at no cost, but then it has to be under warranty. If not you'll have to pay the cost of ordering the part, labor to install it. Find out cost prior to signing any agreement.
On your other issue, did you replace or upgrade the battery or memory? If not then remove the battery and plugin the power only. Try this again does it boot the ACER logo and Windows. Can you put your ear down to the keys or palm rest and hear the HDD spinning up?
If not either the HDD is DOA or faulty power module on the MOBO or just bad MOBO. Again same as above if it's under warranty call or take it to ACER factory service dealer.
Make sure if you had a good battery on this laptop that all switches are switched to the lock mode for the battery.
Please help. i have the above laptop which has been perfect until now. It wont charge unless i mess with the charging lead. The jack area seems fine and that doesnt affect charging. the lead further down if you twist it will activate charging, so thinking that was the problem we ordered a new lead and charger complete. When it arrived we plugged it in and charged perfectly for a few hours but now stopped again. Have plugged in the old charger and after the old wiggling it is charging agian for now HELP!!!
Hi and welcome to TSF if you eliminated the lead and charger by buying new then the issue has to be elsewhere and the dc jack would be a good starting pointhttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/aspire-5551-a-charging-problem-691773.html
Hi, I have an Aspire 5551-A which was going fine until today when the screen went black.

I have an Aspire V3-771G-9809 laptop and want tto upgrade the memory. However, I have a question. If I go to Crucial.com and go thru and let it select the memory it comes up with this as one of the options. If you'll notice it says the memory is 1.35 V. However, if I go here it says the memory is 1.5 V. Which is correct? Several places have listed 1.5V.... the above is just an example. Would this memory from Newegg work in my computer? Thanks
Hi, You can use cpu-z to check the memory voltage. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.htmlYou can find this detail on the SPD page within CPU-Z.

To help you activate your Windows 8.1 Operating System copy depends on how you acquired your copy of Windows?- If you purchased Windows from an authorized retailer, the product key should be on a label inside the box it came in.- If you bought a new PC with Windows, the product key will be pre?installed on your PC and your PC will automatically be activated. The product key should be included with the packaging the PC came in, or on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to the PC. If you bought a digital copy of Windows from a Microsoft website, the product key should be in the confirmation email you received after buying it. There are 2 alternate methods to activate you Windows Operating System, please find the link given below and follow step-by-step instructions mentioned on ?Activate Windows 8.1?:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15083/windows-how-to-activate You can also directly contact ?Microsoft Volume Licensing Activation Centers? from the link given below:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/existing-customer/activation-centers.aspx Hope this will help you.http://community.acer.com/t5/Windows-8-1/Acer-Aspire-E15/td-p/441098

if this is jsut the spash screen that says' this than it's not a big deal. Find out what model of motherboard was put in the computer, the easiest way is to open it up and look it will be printed somewhere on the board. And check the specifications of your computer to find out what board came with the computer, if it's the same baord then no worries. It's most likely the splash images that's programed into the bios of the board by default and they forgot to change it.

I own an Acer Aspire One with windows xp. It has a VGA out but my tv only has HDMI in. Since it's VGA I am guessing that an VGA to DVI to HDMI adapter process won't work because vga is analog whilst dvi and hdmi are digital.

Depends on your definition of "cheap."

The original hardware governs the max amount of RAM per slot and total allowed. It's very unlikely a BIOS update would add support for more RAM. Putting a 4 gig module in would likely result in only 2 gig being used, if it works at all. It's impractical to try and change the chip-set, it's soldered to the motherboard. Even if you could have it done it would cost you more than the laptop is worth with no guaranty of success. You'll more than likely just brick your laptop.http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/187608-acer-aspire-ram.html

However, if I go here it says the memory is 1.5 V. Which is correct? Several places have listed 1.5V.... the above is just an example. Would this memory from Newegg work in my computer?

Hello Acer Community I was wondering if you can let me know how do I open the disk drive . Thanks, Fellow User
You need to tell more about the model, if it's the same as my guess, there should be a button on the DVD tray, press once for the tray to open.http://community.acer.com/t5/E-and-M-Series-Laptops/Acer-Aspire-E-15/td-p/442050
OK, I'm not sure this is the right place but, here goes...
I turn on my Acer Aspire 5332. It flashes onto the Acer Aspire Screen, then says "Windows is loading files in a black and grey screen. Then, it turns Dark Grey, and goes no further. I need to fix it! Any help? Can't replace parts. I need emergent help!
Do you have a Windows 7 DVD?
If so, can you boot from it and run the "Startup Repair"?
My usual method for repairing boot problems, is to re-image my PC using my backup HDD images.
It's much faster than trying to diagnose and fix the problem.
You might have to wait for one of the Boot Problem experts to drop in.
So i have an acer aspire 3000 with the stock 256mb ram and im looking to upgrade it to 1gb
my problem is that the manual gives the maximum memory module size as 512mb in ech of the two slots while two ram choosers on the kingston and corsair websites have told me that i can use 1gb modules
I would like to know if i can actually use 1gb modules as it is simpler and i can upgrade again in the future (and if this is possible can i out both the old 256mb module and new 1gb modules in together to give 1280 mb)
That should work , using the 1gb and 256 sticks, but it might not run at the full ddr333 mhz speed. the reason it might not be posted like that on acer's website is because they "do not recommend it" for the reason i stated before.
I would like to do the following on the machine I have 1) I would like to upgrade the RAM from 4GB to at least 8GB 2) I would also like to change the 2.5" HDD from 500 GB to atleast 1TB. I can not find a cheat sheet anywhere on how to open this unit. I am a computer tech myself. The first 10 of the serial is DQSZUAA001http://community.acer.com/t5/All-In-One-PCs/Acer-Aspire-z1-622/td-p/464040
Hi, I'm not sure if this is in the right thread but it's the only one that makes sense.
I have an Acer Aspire E1-571. It's about a year old and today it is not turning on. Well it turns on shows the Acer loading screen with it's slogan but then the screen go's black and nothing happens. I've left it for about 20 minutes with still nothing happening. If I turn it on with the charger plugged in the screen will go black for about 10 seconds before blue screening and restarting itself where it happens over again.
It was working fine last night and when I first turned it on today but today the laptop crashed while I was using it and then these problems began.
Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you
taking out the power adapter

Now - hold the power button for 60 seconds

Hi there! I have this new Acer Aspire Z3-710 over a week now and have completed all set-ups (i guess). At first it was all doing great but now whenever i open a File Explorer, point to any folder and right click, the pointer turns into that circle waiting thing and then the opened explorer stops responding. But after a long while of waiting, the rightclick dropdown appears. It takes ages. Please help me on this. I don't think I already got a virus since im still running the free version of McAfee antivirus. Cheers,jogdeguzman
First of all you need to check if computer is using high CPU usage, to check this please follow the steps mention below:-Press 'Ctrl' key +'Alt' key +'Del' key to bring up the windows task manager.-Click on 'Performance' tab and check for 'CPU Usage'.-If it is high, you need to go on 'Processes' tab and end unwanted process that are running.-Now you need to install genuine antivirus in the computer and run the full scan to detect the virus. Hope this will help you.http://community.acer.com/t5/All-In-One-PCs/Acer-Aspire-Z3-710/td-p/421800/jump-to/first-unread-message
Hi, Thank you for your help previously. I purchased an Acer Aspire last February, it has 150gb Hard Drive, which it 'partitioned into Drives 'C' and 'D'
with 75 gb on each. The C drive states ACER 'C' but the D drive states ACERDATA 'D'.
The C drive is filling up and I have had a message saying uninstall some programmes, but surely I can just use the 'D' Drive? I am confused why it says ACERDATA?
Can anyone advise me what to do please?
Merry Christmas everyone.
Drive names can be changed easily, if that's all that's bothering you.
Just right-click on the drive, while in Explorer view, and name it whatever.
In fact, they don't even have to have a name...XP goes by the drive letter. Names are conventions for users who want to indulge.
