acer aspire 5920 battery and clock/date problem

Q: acer aspire 5920 battery and clock/date problem

I have an acer aspire 5920 laptop and have had a problem with the battery not holding a charge from within a few months of purchase. Also, and I'm not sure if this 2nd problem is related, but the machine is unable to keep the time and date - it keeps reverting to a date (and incorrect time) in April 2007 (possibly the date of manufacture). Is there anyone else out there who is having similar problem(s) and if so, any solutions. The technician I took it to was very vague. I'd appreciate some help here

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Several reasons that can happen. If both networks dont have encryption turned and are of almost equal strength it can skip from one to another. Do you have encryption turned on?

Another reason is if you have checked connect to his network when in range checked.

I need a driver for my laptop so that the battery won't show red x and tells me to switch battery, even tough it's 100%

Anyone knows about my problem?

A:Acer Aspire 5920

I'm guessing that the battery issue would be connected to the chipset drivers. However, after searching the downloads at Acer's site, the only chipset drivers available are for Vista, nothing for Windows 7.

My cauzin Got Acer Aspire 5920 !! its charger stop working she buy another charger for it !! but due to inexperience she bought 24 volts instead of 18 volts !! after charging some time the laptop isn't working nor the power is coming to laptop !! now tel me wht will be affected inside the laptop !! i open it and see that none of IC's are burnt everything is normal !! Now my question is that if high volts charger is plugged to laptop what do it affect !! plzz help me out !!

A:Acer Aspire 5920

This not something that can be dealt with here as it will need to be looked at by an experienced technician to see what damage has occured to the mobo and/or battery. The power supply you got with the wrong voltage may well be damaged also. If you are very lucky the charger may have a thermal overload in it and your PC may have a fuse or the battery has been wrecked which could be the reason why it won't turn on.

I wish you the best of luck.

Hello eh My name is Tardis Luv and I hail from the North Okanagan BC Canada nbsp I've recently acquired by luck and circumstance a free Acer Aspire from nbsp I've cleaned her up and she looks like new and is purring like a kitten however the OS is Windows Vista and I have nothing but the laptop no burned discs no service discs nada The problem is I hate Windows Vista nbsp I've NEVER had it on any of my previous laptops and after spending only a day with this OS I'm about ready to kick 5920 - Does experience... any have Aspire anyone Acer the person that thought it was a fun idea nbsp It's evil and asks me wayyy too many questions that are ridiculous--it's like it's paranoid and anxious and indecisive always asking for my permission and attention to Acer Aspire 5920 - Does anyone have any experience... things that you'd normally never truly pay Acer Aspire 5920 - Does anyone have any experience... much attention to sigh I have been searching the net for some way to get rid of it and upgrade to Windows not my fave either but better than Vista that's for sure --but despite downloading manuals for this model nbsp none of them seem to go back far enough to accurately explain how to reset the laptop back to factory default and wipe this thing of its previous owners info nbsp I'd like a clean computer to start fresh with even if I can't upgrade to Windows for whatever reason I'd still like to wipe this little gem clean completely Does anyone have any experience with this older laptop and wiping it I can't seem to find anything but easy and new info online that doesn't in any way shape or form work for me If you've done something like this on this older laptop or one like it by Acer I'd be very grateful for your comments Thank you in advance nbsp nbsp subject line edited to reflect topic nbsp

The stop error indicates that your boot device in inaccessible.

Insert your Windows 7 disc.
Restart your computer.
If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
Click Repair your computer. NOTE: This Option will be skipped if using a Recovery disc.
Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next. If you know your keyboard is for another language then select that from the list.
The system will scan for installed operating systems. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
Select your user account and click Next. If there is only one user account this will go straight to the System Recovery Options.
On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Command Prompt

Select Command Prompt and type in rstrui.exe and hit the Enter key.

This should open the System Restore window. Take it back to before things went wrong.

I just made the mistake of clean installing windows 10 on my acer and now it will not connnect with the wifi. Does anyone have a solution for this or possibly can the Wifi adapter be updated or a different adapter be installed to work ?  I bought the laptop from a co-worker and it had windows 7 on it and someone removed the factory refresh so that's not an option either . It has a Vista code on the bottom but of course i have no disc .thanks for any help ! Phil

I guess you could try connecting your computer to the router via ethernet and see if Windows automatically downloads and installs a driver for your wifi. You could also google search for "USB WiFi dongle" and see if you can get one that works with Windows 10.  Or run over to Best Buy and I'm sure they have a USB WiFi dongle they can recommend for $10-$25.

I have a Acer Aspire laptop It came with Windows Vista installed has GB RAM GB HDD in partitions I've mainly used the computer for basics like web surfing using Office email and some streaming video When it was newer my son played games with it online and being what he thought was pretty computer-savvy at the time would often change settings and so forth So while I was pretty careful who knows what he did when I wasn't around Relatively recently I had the screen replaced when I could be remembering this incorrectly the backlight burned out That was about - years ago I work for a university and faculty staff members can get Windows and MS Office for - so last December I bought the upgrade from Vista to Windows to Acer 7-8 5920 minutes Aspire boot takes Of course when I tried to install it I found out that the upgrade was for Windows Professional and my computer had Home and Office The same person who replaced the screen for me Acer Aspire 5920 takes 7-8 minutes to boot and IT guy from work brought me a copy of Windows Vista Professional to install instead of the Home and Office don't ask - I didn't We moved all of my data files off the computer installed Windows Vista Pro installed the upgrade to Windows Pro and it seemed to work However since then the computer has been slowly how should i say this degrading as far as speed goes Web pages load more slowly Documents open more slowly Firefox crashes much more frequently And lately over the last - weeks it's been taking or minutes to boot up after being shut down I tend to want to just jump in and try things myself so I of course ran a complete scan with the security software that's free from the University - Symantec Endpoint Protection All it's ever found is tracking cookies I downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a full scan I downloaded SuperAntiSpyware and ran a full scan Neither found much of interest except for duplicate files that I'm working on cleaning up I have HijackThis on my desktop and have run it several times The first time there were a few things listed that I was pretty sure I could take care of myself but a lot that I just don't know enough about to be sure After getting some advice I uninstalled Symantec's software and installed MS Security Essentials instead I've uninstalled some software that I wasn't using I did de-select a few items from the start-up list that I didn't think needed to be running like ABBY Fine Reader OCR software for the printer that I've never used At this point I don't know if the computer is infected it's suffering from too little memory or the motherboard is failing Any thoughts Thanks so much Cyogd

My acer aspire 5920 wireless button is not working. It is not getting switched on.
I am using windows xp.
Is there any driver issue or something else?
need some real help.

A:Acer aspire 5920 wireless button not working

This could be a hardware problem. But I guess it could be a driver issue, but hardware would be more likely.

First go here:
- Click the Start icon in the bottom left hand corner
- Right click on my computer and select manage
- On the left hand side, find device manager and go to it
- Do you see any yellow exclamations or red x's?

Now, I am assuming your wireless is not working? Can you get internet when you plug a cable from the router into the computer?

If your wireless is not working, I am assuming it is turned off and you are trying to use the wireless button to turn it back on. There are other ways to turn on the wireless besides using the button.
- Go to the start icon in the bottom left hand corner
- Select control panel
- Select Network and Internet Connections
- If you don't see this, on the left hand side select Switch to Category View
- After network and internet connections, select network connections
- You should now be able to see some network interfaces
- For your wireless one, right click it and select enable
- Wireless should now be on.

hi there,

I have a Acer Aspire E1 570 laptop that I use for college, the laptop is less then 8 months old. For some reason recently it starting going dead at 40% battery charge remaining. I ran a powercfg -energy from the command prompt and it said that my batterys designed charge is 37000 and last full charge untill the battery read it was fully charged is 36526. If some one would happen to know why this is happening that would be great, as i use the laptop on the battery all the time while i'm at school. I was thinking maybe just refresh the PC from the recovery i made using the provided software with the computer. I'm unsure if that would correct the issue. As well as i haven't found anything on google for this issue on my laptop.

To help you understand, what type and size of the battery is required for your laptop, you can check it by removing the battery from the back side of the laptop.- To do this, first of all please make sure you turned off the laptop and the power connections.- Now turn the laptop to the back side and pulled the clips to remove battery, which is the only removable part from the outerside.- Now you can check the specification of the battery and find it online on the manufacturers website.- Your battery is of 4400 mAh Capacity, 6-cell.- Ac adapter input is AC 120/230 V (50/60 Hz). Hope this will help you.

I have an ACER Aspire 3680 laptop. About 1 year ago, I purchased an OEM battery (compatible based on number match) to replace the manufacturer's battery that had stopped charging. I installed the battery, plugged in the AC adapter and turned on the computer. Once fully booted, the battery icon said "Battery not found". The laptop works as long as it's plugged in to the AC adapter, but powers off immediately if the adapter is removed.

I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or a software issue. My thought is that it might be solved by updating a driver, but it could also be that the hardware that converts the AC to charge the batter is defunct.

I appreciate all suggestions!

Clearly something wrong with the battery on my Acer Aspire 7740 laptop. Preloaded with Windows 7, 64-bit o.s. [would love to get rid of that]. Battery, which is always fully powered, allows only 1 1/2 to 2 hrs use off power. Transformer is functioning, connection to laptop is good. I have a lousy battery, right? This product is under warranty, was purchased about 4 months ago.
Lots of problems. Have attempted to work with Acer support, but the communication is not only difficult, but virtually useless. Most of the time they can't understand the problem.

Yup, that's it. So the battery is internal, but I'd like to go over a power reset just to make sure.
It will be a bit tricky, but hit the battery pin hole reset with a paperclip or something similiar. You should feel a pretty definitive recession when you push on it. If you can, hold the power button for 10-30 seconds and then try.
If that fails, I'd recommend contacting your local service team as I can't think of any other troubelshooting and I suspect that the battery has failed.

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.

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. 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.

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.

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

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

Hi guys,

I hope this is in the right forum. I have been suffering from stuttering audio, from both audio on my pc and streaming from the net. I did all the usual tricks, checked for viruses/spyware, reinstalled drivers etc and I've (unintentionally) narrowed it down to hardware. I've done this by accidentally leaning on the casing, to the right hand side of the mouse pad. This actually allows the audio to continue playing without stutter and if the pressure is lifted the stutter returns immediately.

What I want to ask is whether it is easy enough to get into the machine itself, having looked around someone had done it previously. Secondly, what am I likely to find that is causing this problem?

Many thanks in advance.

A:Acer 5920 pictures and upgrade info

it's good to see acer can be "halfway"opened like my old travelmate.

hence it's possible to clean CPU heatsink without doing full teardown..

some series of acer does not allow this, they only allow to open the RAM and HDD case. hence when it's time to clean the CPU heatsink and fan, big teardown must be done...

anyway 5920G is a nice laptop...
my housemate has one and it's one of the most impressive acer
bad thing is that it cant be 200* opened (screen) like old travelmate series

I have a problem with my friend's Acer 5920 laptop and I can't figure out how to fix it. When I turn the laptop on it asks to choose from the following configurations:

Safe Mode
Safe mode with Networking
Safe mode with command prompt
start windows normally

When I choose 'Start windows normally' the Vista loading bars appear and then the screen turns completely black. The mouse pointer is visible.

I tried to enter into Safe mode, but the same thing happens; A black screen with a visible mouse pointer.

Can anyone help please?

looks like a corrupted windows component. if you want to 'reformat' it press ALT+F10 after turning on it should lead you to Acer eRecovery console. Be sure to backup before formatting.

Simply Vista won't load. I have tried:
F8 - it won't load in any safe mode (plain, networking, or command prompt) or last known good configuration. I have backup on an Iomega external hard drive (but I cannot boot it from there), and then I read about ALT F-10 restore to factory default (I'm getting desperate) and I have tried every variation of my passwords (none work).
I don't care if Vista ever boots again, end result I want to install Ubunto on the laptop as I only use it for facebook and runescape. I installed Ubunto on an older desktop computer which I am using for Internet access for this site). The old computer I'm using is too slow for FB/RS. I really want to see if I can fix this laptop!

What exactly do you see on screen if you try to boot into Vista in Normal mode?

When you go to the Advanced Boot Menu and select Safe Mode what happens?

Have you tried to install Ubuntu, if so what happens?

My first here! Among my systems is my main surfing Acer 5920 running Vista Home Premium. When rebooting last night, it reported the C drive has been corrupted. It has the D2D restore partition, and a D partition and I can access both of those....but not the 'C' drive. The restore function (accessed with alt+F10) starts but crashes.
Is this a virus? What can I do to9 restore it without loosing the factory restoration partition? Any help would be appriciated. Thanks for listening!

Hi all,

I have done some searching in the forum threads before opening a new one, but I couldn`t find solution.

SO here is my problem on a Vista Business 32 bit machine: I`m not able to change the time - every time I restart the laptop the clock is set automatically around 5 minutes back. I have set the correct time zone, I`m not using automatically adjustment for daylight saving, I have tried setting the correct time in the BIOS and then after the OS was loaded I had again the wrong time - 5 min back. When I set the time it is OK provided don`t restart it. The behaviour is the same no matter if it is plugged or not or network is connected or not. I find this very annoying.

The Laptop is ACER Travelmate 6292.

Please can anybody help me on this. I would really appreciate it!

Thanks in advance!

Hi again,

little correction after testing again: PC is part of domain and it gets the five minute difference after plugging the network.
I guess admins should be involved to correct this or is there a way I could succeed, my Internet time tab is missing..

Its a packard bell laptop and the system started to freeze for no reason No viruses Now I can usually only move the mouse pointer-if it lets me start windows at all xp As of tonight the system wouldnt let me even pass the startup screen it kept asking for a non existent system password to continue The system bios clock seems to reset itself too so I believe the whole problem to be related to the cmos battery My main question is how much should I roughly be expected to pay for a cmos battery much this errors-how boot, to problem? fix bios/clock cmos to battery a wont replace and installation from a general pc repair store The laptop is out of warranty so I dont really want to be spending just for Packard to find and wont boot, bios/clock errors-how much to replace a cmos battery to fix this problem? install one either The reason I need someone else to do wont boot, bios/clock errors-how much to replace a cmos battery to fix this problem? it is because this wont boot, bios/clock errors-how much to replace a cmos battery to fix this problem? particular packard system has the most awkward setup and therefore access to the battery is next to impossible as you can see from my slightly blurry photo- http img imageshack us img cmoslocation png there are only panels on the back of the machine that you can remove- hard drive ram and wifi card I think the cmos battery the circle is to the right of one of the panels under the casing I have tried removing the entire casing all screws and connections and even from the front trying to get to it by removing the keyboard but it proved impossible to me so Id rather get someone else to do it No doubt the difficulty is on purpose so that you would always send it to packard for repair and for a high price but this laptop is from and out of warranty so for how much should I have to pay in total from a third party repair shop I know the cmos batteries themselves if the type I need is easy to find are usually next to nothing in price but what would you pay for installation thanks for any help suggestions nbsp

A:wont boot, bios/clock errors-how much to replace a cmos battery to fix this problem?

If there's a dismantling guide for your laptop online you could try to fit a new battery yourself.
If you're ok with that post the exact model of your laptop and I/we will help you look.

Otherwise to get the best deal I would phone a few small local computer shops and compare their prices with big chains like PC World.

You can try to download image.dll here:
and uncompress it in your folder c:\windows\system32
