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.

Sir, I cannot tell what your problem is if I cannot have a computer model name and what happens when you turn Bluetooth on.

First, CALM DOWN and look at my profile picture. Calm? Now post your message. If I helped, a Kudos would be great! Marking as solution will help others as well, thank you!

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

my wife's laptop recently had a virut infect it and it made a complete mess of it with the help of another forum my apologies already i thought i cleaned up the mess but it turns out no now when i boot up i get safe mode options along with the normal boot and boot with last known working config all of them except the last known working config end up just looping infinitely the last known config XP reinstall boot during Acer from wont laptop CD just brings it to a black screen and nothing happens at all i have a backup cd i made but i am not sure how it works and it wouldnt boot it after i changed the boot sequence in the BIOS to cd Acer laptop wont boot from CD during XP reinstall as the first boot source i figured ok time to just reinstall XP unfortunately i dont have one so i broke down and burned a copy from a source not though when i boot the cd doesnt boot up and i ended up Acer laptop wont boot from CD during XP reinstall in the same situation with the same loop any ideas

A:Acer laptop wont boot from CD during XP reinstall

If you had a working CD, I'd suggest booting from the CD and trying to perform a repair. As you don't have a CD, you will either need to A) contact Acer and try to get a disk or B) buy a new copy.

I have a Acer Aspire 7520 laptop that used to have Vista installed. I've been playing with it some and installed Ubuntu some time back. Got recovery and system disks from Acer to reinstall Vista but keep getting a window saying something about windows/vista not able to install with this hardware. I haven't changed any of the original hardware and have reformatted the drive with both fat and ntsf but get the same problems with hardware message.

So I just bought myself a bluetooth keyboard (K380 Multi Device from Logitech) but the problem is I dicovered that my bluetooth was no longer available anywhere on my computer. Then, decided to download the drivers from acer support page but seems that there are some common problems with Bluetooth and Windows 10 update. Checked the windows 10 compability with the official page and seems my model didn't make the cut (even though windows asked if I wanted the update so I assumed it complied with the neccesary specs). Anyway I can fix or download Bluetooth?

I have a Dell 5558 I7 and system is approved for win 10 according to Dell . A few questions: 1)Will the HDD recovery partition and other restore features on the HDD be upgraded to be compatible to Win 10? 2) How would I completely restore the image to Win 10 in the future if there is a problem? I have a both a factory 8.1 OS recovery media and system disks I burned. I would assume I would have to create recovery system disks for win 10 and the factory disks would be obsolete. 3) Are the program compatibility modes the same in win 8.1 and 10 the same. I am running some legacy programs.

I got a new computer HP Pavilion HPE running Windows 7 (64 bit) and connected my HP Laserjet 5550 printer via the USB cable. The driver got automatically installed with all green checkmarks during the installation process and finally showed up in Control Panel as "hp color Laserjet 5550 series PCL 5. When I print a test page (or whatever), the document sits forever in the print queue with the status "printing", but nothing comes out of the printer. (Obviously, the printer is switched on, and paper is available.)

I then uninstalled the usb ports in safe mode but still it does'nt see the printer.The HP setup program also is not working even if I try a new installation

Can anyone please help me

A:HP 5550 Printer Install problem

Leave the usb cable hooked up and plug in the power for the printer. Then go to device manager and delete any printer that shows. Then reboot and watch for the new hardware wizard to start then when the driver installation starts select specific location and direct it to the drivers you have and click on the .inf file within.

I always install drivers from the official website. However, when I try to install bluetooth driver it says "No appropriate driver to be installed". I have tried different versions of bluetooth drivers, and even changed energy manager of 8.1 to the version of windows 7 (It helped previous time). The bluetooth service is set to start automatically on  every logon. I even tried to install dual boot Zorin OS, because usually Ubuntu OS doens't need drivers. However, even it couldn't find appropriate driver. Neither bluetooth is shown in device manager and PC settings, nor it can be added through legacy hardware in device manager. I will be glad to share any additional information if requiered. Please help me fix this issue.

Like an idiot, I assumed that a batch of updates provided to me by Micro$oft were appropriate to install on my machine, so I inswtall3ed them. On3e of them was an updated Bluetooth driver for Win 10 so, naturally, after I installed it I could no longer connect to any of my BT devices. After looking up additional info on the update and BT for Win 10 I found out that the updates wasn't installed correctly and that there should not be any BT driver required in Win 10. I used the Device Manager to delete the driver and it removed Intel Bluetooth completely. How do I reinstall the Intel Bluetooth?

Is the touchpad listed in device manager? If so, try removing it, then restarting your computer to see if Windows will load the correct touchpad driver. If that does not work, please let me know how the touchpad is showing up in device manager, so we can work on other troubleshooting.

Is the touchpad listed in device manager? If so, try removing it, then restarting your computer to see if Windows will load the correct touchpad driver. If that does not work, please let me know how the touchpad is showing up in device manager, so we can work on other troubleshooting.

Hi everyone. I have an acer aspire 5515 laptop . When I try to turn it on the power light comes on and the laptop turns On for about 4 to 5 seconds and then shuts off. The screen stays all black. I tried running it without the battery and just the charger but it won't even turn on. Before all of this I kept getting a replace battery warning on my desktop. And then one day it just shut off and this starting happening. If the battery was the problem the computer wouldn't turn on at all right? Please help

I have a HP laptop, Win 8.1 and it has built-in Bluetooth 4.0. I ran into an issue where I couldn't remove/unpair a bluetooth device. It seems to be a known problem and I see other people have run into it without having solved the issue.

Anyways, in my attempts to try things, I removed the Bluetooth 4.0 driver from the device manager window. I thought I would just have go and say install driver to fix it. But the Bluetooth adapter doesn't show up anywhere in the device manager. I've tried expanding everything, and couldn't see anything that looks like the bluetooth adapter.

I tried searching for new hardware, but that was in the printers and devices settings windows.

Can someone help direct me on how to get the Bluetooth driver re-installed?

I tried to wipe my laptop display with a window cleaning solution and now there's a small transparent wet spot under the display, will that spread or can i dry it with a hair drier?... what can i do now?

A:Problem with Acer laptop display

If you used Windex, or any solution with Ammonia, you should get that out of there... If it is a small drop, it will take care of itself. But do you really know how much is there, and how much has run to another internal area you cannot see.
It is never a good idea to use a cleaner with Ammonia on a laptop.
There is no easy way to get it out.
The Acer Screen is held together by screws which are covered by rubberized screw covers... and depending on the laptop, there can be as many as 10 to 16 screws. It is very easy to damage those screw covers so that they are ugly ugly when glued back on.
If you have never had a screen apart before, it is best to find some help from somebody who has.

If it is just the keyboard thst is bad, depending on how difficult it is to pull the bad one and put in a new one, depends on how comfortable you are in doing so.

Keyboards run about $19-30, depending on the laptop. It does not take much for them to break these days.

If you are not comfortable in replacing, find a local mom & pop computer store that will do the repair.

A:Acer Laptop Travelmate 240 booting up problem

Hello Ramesh Suri

I think you will need an XP installation CD to fix this. If you do not have one, borrow one just to run this fix.

Configure your PC to boot from CD if it isn't already set up that way. You may need to enter the BIOS to configure the PC to boot from the CD.
Set the boot order to
Floppy (if present)
Hard Disk

Start your PC with the XP Setup CD in the drive. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD..." prompt, do so and let the CD-based boot process begin.

When the Recovery Console option is offered ("Press R to start the Recovery Console"), do so. You may be asked which Windows installation to enter, in which case type the number of the Windows installation you wish to work on (usually "1").

When prompted, enter the Administrator's password for that Windows installation. If you did not set a password just press ENTER

At the command prompt, type
Bootcfg /Rebuild

The exact wording will depend on your setup, but after a few moments you'll see a prompt that says something like:
Total Identified Windows Installs: 1
[1] C:\Windows
Add Installation To Boot List?

Assuming the information you see is correct, enter
Bootcfg will start the process of rebuilding the boot list to include the indicated Windows installation

After a moment, you'll be asked to "Enter Load Identifier."
This is the name of the operating system that will appear in boot menus.
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
(whichever your system is)
Next you'll be asked to "Enter OS Load Options."
For normal installations, enter

to leave the Recovery Console and reboot the PC

A:Acer Laptop SNID and Hardware problem

How long ago did you purchase the product?
if still within Warranty period then you should receive a new machine from Acer (if cannot be repaired, which in this instance is almost a given)
As far as your SNID is concerned, if there is no way of reading it from from the casing on the machine and you obviously cannot boot the machine to find it in there,
Only other way i can think of is try and either get in touch with or go personally to the place you bought it giving date of purchase, they should be able to give you the SNID which will be on their systems at time of sale. (make sure and take your receipt though if you still have it)
Did you register your purchase with Acer? they will have a log of this if you did so which you will be able to get from their support team as long as you can prove you are the registered user of the machine.

Even if you cannot do the above Acer will still have a record of when their product was purchased from a vendor again as long as you know date of purchase etc.

My Acer laptop has a factory installed CD/DVD RW installed and it recently has failed to recognize the CD drive. Every time I put a disc into the drive it wil spin the disc but will not read or open the programs. After opening the Computer Icon, it doesn't even show the CD drive on the program list. I have run the trouble shooter program and it comes up a (code 39) error message. I have contacted Acer and they will not help since it is out of warranty. I'm guessing that I may have to purchase a new driver program or carry it to someone to have it looked at. Is there anything else I can do to fix my problem? Thanks, JA.

Hello, I've an Acer Aspire 6920, and I've the strangest problem I've ever seen. Whenever I close the lid of my laptop it loses power. Completely. As if it was a normal desktop that got unplugged. If, however I open it, it works perfectly again, and can last several hours on it's battery alone.
Note, that when I close the lid, it loses the power feed from the adapter, and does not regain it until I pull the power cord out and insert it back in.

I tried flashing my bios, no effect.

Wonder if anyone's seen something like this... I just got a new battery for my Acer TravelMate 230, and it seems to be having a wee issue: the battery meter sits at 0% while it's plugged in, until after a couple hours it jumps to 75%, and won't go beyond there. If I unplug the power, it'll run for a good half hour with the meter at 75%, after which it drops to 0% again, although the laptop continues to run for a good hour-and-a-half or more.

The retailer suggested giving it three full charge/discharge cycles... it's on the third charge cycle now, and still sitting at 0% after almost an hour on AC. This doesn't seem right at all. This is the first time I've actually had to buy a new battery for a laptop - is this common?

A:Acer laptop battery charging problem?

I betcha' this is a calibration issue...

I can't find where I read it, just the other day, but I'm sure someone here is familiar with the process.

There's also a possibility that it's a counterfeit battery, even coming from a retailer...

I have had my acer for probably about a year and half or so. I have been having a problem with the screen/brightness for awhile now. Before, whenever I adjusted the screen, the brightness just cut out. I could just barely see what was happening. I fixed this by just closing the laptop and putting it to sleep, then opening the laptop and turning it back on. The brightness returned to normal. If i adjusted the screen again though, it would cut out. I assumed it was some connection problem with the screen. Now my screen won't light up at all. There is no brightness, and the display is very faint. Does anyone have any solutions in which I could fix this problem at home instead of having to pay money?

My b-in-l has just bought an Acer 3000 series laptop. It appears to be partitioned into two sections, C & D ~ both of which are around 37Gb in capacity. He keeps getting a message saying that the C drive is nearly full ~ this is despite the fact that there's only around 2.5Gb of files/folders and programs on it. When we right-clicked on the C icon and chose properties, it comes up that 35GB is used up with only around 2.5Gb left ~ this would appear to be exactly the opposite of the way things actually are! Any ideas what the problem is and how it can be rectified? We've run chkdsk (no problems found) and cleaned all the rubbish out but it hasn't made much difference. We've also run all his (up to date) anti-spyware and anti-virus software but nothing came up. His OS is XP by the way...

Which media players are you using? Have you tried VLC? I have found that will play just about anything I throw at it with great success.

It sound like it might be a bad episode causing a memory leak or something, which is corrected after you restart the PC.

look in Device Manager and see what it shows for bluetooth (if anything at all). It's the best place to look to get an overview of what devices are detected and which have problems as denoted by an error symbol.

According to Acer's website, not all AOD257's have a bluetooth device. It depends on the full model number, AOD-257 is only part of the model number, the full model number contains a hyphen and a further six or seven digits, for example AOD257-N57DQbb

Hi, I was wondering if the Acer Aspire R14 model R5-471T 534x Intel Core CI5-6200U dual-coe has built in BlueTooth 4, and if it supports WiFi AC and what is the physical size of the SDD, is it 2.5" . The reason is that I want to buy this model but only if it supports BlueTooth 4 or 4.1, and it also supports WiFi ac plus a,b.g,n of course and also I want to upgrade the SSD to minimum 500GB instead of the 256GB.
Look forward to hear back from you ASAP.

(Handshake) everyone!

I will tell you about my problem in short:
I have laptop travelmate p253-m. Today, i decided to clean cooler. i disassembled laptop well, cleaned cooler and when i re-built it and started windows 7, i mentioned that left speaker stopped working. When i plug my iphone headphones everything works great! but internal left speaker died??? wtf. i didn't tear any connectors on motherboard.

after this, i re-disassembled laptop again, change internal speakers locations on motherboard, started windows 7, right speaker worked perfectly but left didn't. so, i think the issue is with motherboard and not with speaker. should i replace whole motherboard cause of this problem? or should i change only speaker pin connect on motherboard to fix that problem?

Thanks a lot!!

Normally I'd go for the cheapest solution-making sure I do not create a bigger issue.

Try the pin first.

I have a laptop that I cant get to connect to the internet. My home wireless router (and various neighbours routers) are visible from the laptop but it will only connect with "limited Connectivity" and states the network is "unidentified". When I connect direct to the router with a cable I can connect to the net fine. I have recently restored the laptop to factory settings to try to fix with no success and every forum I have been on hasn't helped so far. I have downloaded the latest network adaptor driver too. I am running Vista and currently have no virus software loaded to get in the way if it helps.

Any help would be much appreciated as I am at the end of My tether!

A:ASUS monitor/ Acer Laptop problem (lines come and go)

Try connecting the laptop to the TV again, using the same cable you use for the monitor, and see if the lines show up on the TV or not. If they do the laptop is the problem, if the don't then the new monitor is faulty.

Acer Aspire 5515 laptop running Vista Home Basic. I?m not sure if this should be in the malware removal forum or here so I?ll post here to start. I was helping my grandson by removing some malware from his laptop. I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware until I got three clear scans. Then the os started showing the following warning ?Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart in one minute. Please save your work.? It did that a few times and now only comes up when I open a web browser (IE or Firefox). The same behavior is duplicated in Safe Mode. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A:Acer Laptop Screen Problem-Inverter or Backlight

Normally when the backlight goes out, it will affect the full screen. It can flicker or go out completely. This can be checked with a flashlight held up to a text area on screen and looking for the contrasting image on the LCD. From the way you describe the working then stopping, it sounds to me like the inverter is building up a charge then letting go.

My laptop has been having issues lately, i think my bro might have dl'ed something which has screwed it over.
i have been unable to reinstall trend micro, and unable to roll back to previous restores.

i'm running Vista SP1

i when i'm streaming from a networked hard drive i'm getting lag spikes at intervals when no one else is on the net and the laptop isn't on the net. running programs has slowed down considerably. ive run a dfrag and disk cleanup and neither have helped with this, ive tried everything i could think of short of reinstalling vista to reinstall my net security, and fix the speed issues, hopefully you guys will be able to help be so i dont have to do that.

i just purchased an acer aspire 8730g with built-in bluetooth adaptor, but after installing windows 7 ultimate x64 it is no longer detected for some reason.
it worked just fine before the reformat and installation, so i dunno what is going on here.
i've tried to install the bluetooth drivers from the acer website to no avail. i keep getting an error stating that no bluetooth device is attached, but my bluetooth usb dongle works just fine. i know i could use the dongle but that would defeat the purpose of having it built in.
this is what i would like to know:
1) why isn't the built in adaptor being recognized
2) where can i find a schematic for the build of my laptop to disconnect and reconnect the dongle manually
3) do i have any other options in terms of how to fix this problem, other than using my usb dongle

Following Microsoft prompting, i did an upgrade of my V5-131 running Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 home edition. Since then, the wifi and bluetooth doesnt work and i cant go online to activate? What do i do? How do i get Wifi working at least? NB: I have tried available drivers from your support page. They are not working?Sadly, i can't go back to Windows 8.1 because i had no recovery disk made.Microsoft won't activate me except i supply the OEM licence key which only Acer has. Please, help me out. The system is apparently useless on my desk without WIFI.Thank you

If it didn't come with BT, it means the Wifi card in the laptop doesn't have BT. You would need to change the Wifi card to one that does. Yes, you can use a bluetooth dongle.
