Hey, all. As many of you have done or plan to do, I recently installed the new Windows 10 OS onto a new hard drive I had just recently bought. It installed perfectly and is running smoothly, however, the scroll feature on my touchpad seems to be not working. I tried installing different drivers to see if this had worked (Used a generic PS/2 driver, an Elan driver and also tried a Syntacts driver(Pardon my spelling if I am off a bit)). Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hi, I have done everything and download all drivers from acer product support (windows 7 / 8/ 8.1 ) but there is no way I can make my fn key work again after I upgraded to windows 10.
The Function keys (Fn) are not working either on my Windows 7 partition, I already tried downloading the drivers from your website as I mentioned and it did not work either. Also the Caps Lock key used to show a little symbol in the screen to let me know if it was on or off, now that is gone as well, it looks like the driver thats malfunctioning is the keyboard driver. I also tried installing the launch manager as well, and that did not work either.

Trying to dual boot Linux Mint 17.2 with Windows 10 on Acer Aspire E5-771G. I understand that UEFI will not allow this. I have set a supervisor password and in "boot" have changed from UEFI to legacy, but when i reboot, it wont boot to windows. It tells me to insert a bootable disk to continue. When I change back to UEFI, everything works properly. Is it possible to dual boot Linux with windows 10 on this laptop? Thanks Dennis

Hi Everyone,

I am getting very frustrated right now trying to sort out whats wrong with my main machine, Its an Acer Aspire V3-771G and is less than 4 months old, and I have been using it quite a lot since I purchased it without having a single issue, and its been running all the latest games for instance like a charm, Deadpool for instance runs perfectly at the highest settings and in full 1080p glory, even Metro - Last Light runs absolutely gorgousely on this machine!, I bought it as my main machine, as the Acer V3-571G I bought the previous month was not adequate enough to handle what I wanted to use it for.

Anyway, the other day I left it on while I went outside to water the lawn, then I came inside to stream some music using the wifi from my laptop to my 3D Smart TV which is connected to my 2012Watt Full Surround Sound System (7.1), however the laptop was frozen, I could move the mouse, but nothing on the screen would react, so I shut it down, waited 30 seconds, then booted it up again, however, suddenly it would not boot, instead it came back saying their is no bootable device, so I reset it, but this time went into the BIOS, and for some reason it cannot see the hard drive at all.

So I turned it off for the night, and then tried it in the morning, but same issue, its saying their is no hard drive in it!

Does this mean the hard drive in it is cactus, or could it possibly be something else that can be easily fixed?

I will not open the laptop up as that will voi... Read more

Answer:Acer Aspire V3-771G - No HDD suddenly..

Opening it up is not going to void your warranty. Most likely the machine is having motherboard issues. Check with Acer to see if they will cover it for repairs. And yes, a electronic device, or even a motorized vehicle, or appliance can fail in less than six months.

Yesterday before I went to eat lunch I turned on my laptpp and signed in. When I came back it had a blue screen with a kmode exception not handled error. After waiting an hour the getting data portion was stuck on 0 still so I forced turned it on. After that the moniter wouldn't turn on even though the laptop was on, I heard the turn on noise and could hear the fan running when I listened. I tried taking the battery out and holding the button for 30 seconds and putting it back in and after a few times it managed to turn on with the screen. But it froze at the start up logo and after another hour I turned it off and havnt been able to get the screen back on again. Is there anything else I could do?

Answer:Acer aspire V3 771G 6485

Tempus,
 
Sorry to hear that you are experiencing problems, let's see if we can get it workign for oyu.
 
Was the system installing updates when you powered it on, or performed them when you shut it down previously? You can try to get into Windows and perform a system restore to before then and see if that resolves it.
You can attempt a refresh to see if that fixes it.
If that fails, you can attempt a reset to see if that fixes it.

I'm worried somethings wrong and my laptop is overheating. I recently got my keyboard replaced and recently I've begun to notice that my laptop feels very warm under use. Like, I play a 10 year old game, and during it I can feel my laptop is quite warm. Especially around WASD and the left side of the keyboard, I can feel its pretty hot. This is probably why I'm having a lot of performance issues. I've also noticed lately that under task manager, my memory usage is around 50% very often. Is there any programs I can use to detect what exactly is giving the high temps, and solutions that I should try?

Hello,So I have had an acer aspire V3-771G for ~6 months and It started making some noise so,I checked the temperature of the cpu and motherboard and they get up to 70 °C when only using a few programs(ex:google chrome/skype etc).It's quite annoying to hear that noise as I can't concentrate and I am also afraid that it could stop working one day if the temperature keeps being like this.Is there anything I could do to determine the cause? Thanks for your attention.

Answer:Acer Aspire V3-771G overheating

70c is nothing to worry about'but you need to find out what the noise is.Try blowing out the air intake and exaust. Could something have gotten stuck in the exaust port and is hitting the fan? Did you buy it new?

I bought the Acer Aspire v3-771G. I've had no problems with it, but lately it shuts down randomly without any warning, like a power cut. I've checked the CPU Temps and overheating is not the problem. The computer sits on a Targus cooling pad and it dosen't get that hot around the fans. The problem occur when the pc is running games or processes (computer scans) that require more memory than when I'm just surfing. The problem happens all from 15 mins to 2 hours into a game or so (depends on how much memory that's used). I've been doing some research myself and it seems like a graphic problem. The computer always fits the minimum requierments for games I play and I play on rather low graphics on every game (to delay the shutdown). The second problem is whenever I'm streaming or wathcing a movie the screen randomly turns into a "snow storm". Tried to move the screen up and down thinking it was something wrong with the cable from the hardware to screen but it didn't react to that. I have no idea what has made this to happen due to the careful handling of the computer. But the only thing that comes to mind is something wrong with that cable... This problem happens randomly and started last week. I've done some basic problemsolving, with no succes. I've tried restoring the computer to facotry setup, updating the bios and all the relevant drivers.  I've been looking for a hardware diagnostic program on the computer itself (... Read more

3. What is max amount of RAM and number of memory-slots? Now it's 8GB in total (2x4GB Hynix, DDR3);
4. Is there any room for SSD? If so, whith what interface? SATAII or SATAIII?
    If there is a place for only one storage disk, then with what interface? SATAII or SATAIII?
I've been told there is only one, SATAII interface for storage disk. I find it strange because SATAII is pretty old interface in modern enough system and all the SSD's and HDD's now are SATAIII.
 
Thanks in advance.

The keyboard on my Aspire V3 771G was having issues so I decided to replace it.  I ordered the part, found a video on YouTube with step by step instructions, I installed the keyboard, put everything back together again, and now the computer won't turn on. When I press the power button the blue light comes on for just a couple of seconds, I hear what sounds like a drive start up (I think it's the CD drive) but it stops immediately and the blue light turns off and that's it.  Nothing on screen, no other lights or sound.  I took the computer apart again to make sure I reconnected everything, but I get the same result. The only internal connections I had to remove to replace the keyboard are the touchpad, power button, speakers, and keyboard, so I'm not sure how any of those could result in the computer not working. Any ideas?

Hello,So, I recently bought a new Samsung Evo 850 SSD drive. I have installed it along with my previous HDD drive on Acer Aspire V3 laptop.

Hi, I had the same exact problem with the same exact SSD. My solution worked, but it isn?t the ?nicest? or easiest or probably even the best solution? I basically booted from a Linux live CD and deleted the HDD´s MBR (Master Boot Record) so when I booted the PC with the SSD it only had one place to boot from (the SSD). Once I was booted from the OS on the SSD I manually deleted all the Windows/System files that were left on the HDD to save space. Warning: If you do this be VERY careful when deleting the MBR.. You can really mess up your PC if you delete the wrong one or both of them accidentally. I´m sure someone will give a better and easier solution... but this is what I did because I didn?t feel like thinking and because I had the Linux Live distro just sitting around. Hope it helps

I have an Acer Aspire V3-771G which I got in 2013. I've had no battery problems before. Earlier this month I noticed that the orange charging light remained on longer than usual. I turned my computer on and noticed that it said that the battery was 98% charged and charging.I have not done the procedure of discharging and recharging the battery three times as mentioned in the manual. I have not removed the battery since I first installed it (it came with the computer). I don't normally use the laptop on battery power unless it happens to be on during a power outage.I would like to know if I need a new battery or not, as I am concerned as to if the laptop will be continuously trying to fully charge the battery thus wearing it out prematurely.The computer came with Windows 8. I have installed Windows 8.1. Please help.

Answer:Acer Aspire V3-771G battery won't charge past 98%

Yes, leaving the battery in while plugged in will wear the battery down.After a year only charging to 98% is not abnormal.If it is always at 98% and charges all the time will further wear it out. The heat from the laptop is also bad for the battery.I have a Lenovo and you can set the charging to start and stop cargeing at whatever percentages you want. Acer doesn't include that option. I keep my Acer battery in my drawer while plugged in. Every couple of months I take it out, plug it in and run it down,recharge it and take it out again. The only drawback is if you have an outage, you lose whatever you're working on.So far I haven't had that happen.

Hi all, I am unable to turn off the adaptive brightness on my laptop. So far I've tried the following: Change the power plan to "high performance"Adjust the advanced power settings so that the Windows "adaptive brightness" to be turned off both for battery and ACChanged the settings of the Intel Graphics drivers and set them to maximum performanceNone of the above actually changed anything. I cannot belive that this cannot be turned off and it is such annoying feature that would surely make me sell the **bleep** thing! Please advise! 

Answer:Acer Aspire E5-771G Adaptive Brightness Issue

Do you have Acer quick settings installed? Press the Windows () key to access the Start screen.Type Acer Quick Access.Tap on Acer Quick Access.Tap the Adaptive brightness slider to it OFF. Disabling Adaptive brightness can reduce battery life.

Dear Acer Community,Yesterday while translating a Word document, my screen displayed in negative, maybe due to Adobe Reader which now offers to display pdfs in white or black.I searched but could not find how to get my screen back to normal white. Photos, for example, were in negative.So I launched my first ever recovery of system since purchasing the computer in 2014. After the recovery, everything was fine, and My Documents were saved, nothing lost.However, same negative screen happened again today after consulting pdfs using Adobe Reader.Again, I launched "restauration du système" in French, which I think is "system recovery" or "system restoration" in English.But this time, the system has been restored as if the computer just came out of the factory. I had not asked for that at all.Please inform me how to cancel the last system restoration / recovery, if possible, in order to get my documents back. I am working on a long translation of 1000 pages in Word with many pdfs of laws that I need.Of course, my main translation is saved on a USB stick, but many of my other documents are not, and it would save time to be able to cancel this last system restoration.Thanking you in advance, Best regards, Carolyn

I have been having an issue over the past few weeks with random keys not working on my numeric keypad - the top row numbers all work fine. I have tried the number lock solution by enabling the on-screen keyboard and switching the number lock on that way - this solution worked a few times but not any more.I have also tried the mouse keys solution but that wasn't the issue - the keypad wasn't just performing up/down/left/right. At present numbers 1,2,5 and 6 don't respond. I have removed the actual keys to make sure there is no debris underneath that is preventing the keys from making contact and everything is clear.I'm getting super-frustrated as I use the keypad a lot. The laptop is only 2 years old and I don't really want to start paying for costly repairs on it. I have seen people mentioning possible driver updates but I couldn't see anything to download that pertained to keyboard functions. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Dingo,
 
Have you thought about just replacing the entire keyboard itself, if that is in your realm of expertise. It could just be that the keyboard keys have received their fair share of wear if you use it very often.

you must search drivers by yourself, please be aware that you need to set BIOS to Legacy instead of UEFI, this can arise some hardware issues:- video gprahic corruptions- touchpad not working or having hiccups- windows 7 drivers not availables- Legacy is less safer than UEFI windows 8.1 is a good OS, windows 10 is even better; i would suggest you to try a windows 10 clean install (after creating a recovery media to re-install windows 8.1 in the worst case). you can also explain a little better, what do you meant with "here are also some problem with the OS even when upgraded to OS 10".maybe a simple BIOS or drivers update can solve those issues.

I would recommend performing a system restore to before the update. Once you roll it back check the updates it's installing to see if something is for audio. It's most likely just an update issue and installing the updates over may resolve it.

Hi all,

I searched through the forums and have done countless google searches but can't find anything that resolves my problem.

Have the above laptop, about 2 or so years old now and the keyboard suddenly died on me a few days ago. I don't know much about computers but I removed the battery and still no keyboard. Touchpad/mouse works fine - no issues there.

Ran all sorts of virus scans - nothing. Formatted the laptop - still no keyboard.

Could it still be the battery or do you think the keyboard needs a replace?

Cheers in advance for your help!

Answer:ACER Aspire 5740G Windows 7 Keyboard Dead?

Odds are the keyboard died. It happens. usually it is something like some spilled water/coffee/soda, but not always.

Keyboards are usually cheap. I order mine through eBay shops and they run around $15 each, and they are fairly easy to swap out. Hit up YouTube and search for videos on replacing the keyboard on your specific model.

Just got this baby a few days ago, and I'm really liking the performance so far, except the sluggish hard drive. Used to my high-end desktop, I guess. Regardless, I'd like to throw in an SSD in the laptop, though I can't seem to find any info on whether there are one or two hard drive slots in there, and which dimension SSD I'd have to get. Most of the information is on the 15" laptops. If there's two, I don't need more than a 120GB SSD. If there's only one, I'll have to get a 500GB, if not more. Those things are still pricey, and being a student I don't have a whole lot of cash to spare. The BIOS references HDD 0 and HDD 1, so I'm hopeful, but I don't want to pick the thing apart more times than I have to. I've seen how upgrade unfriendly these things are. And at any rate, I don't have much faith that there'll be a sticker in there informing whether it takes a 7 or 9,5mm drive. Any takers?

It's very easy to open the cover on the bottom side of your notebook. You can look for youself how much slots in there. And you could use a ruler to measure the hight. Your notebook is very similar to my model (V3-772G), there should be two bays for hard drives. Normally there should also be a M.2 connector. Edit: It seems, the differences are far greater than expected.

Hi, I have big problem with this otherwise decent laptop - I bought this mainly because good price and matte display, but it has only 4gb ram. I thought it wouldn't be much of an issue, that I'll just buy another ram module and plug it in. Problem is - it doesn't work at all. First I tried it with some random brand 4gb ram (supposedly compatible type, but I'dont remember whole specs). When I've put it in the second slot, my laptop just booted and showed still the same 4gb I had before, when I switched it in the first slot and took off the original module completely, laptot didn't boot at all. I haven't give up yet, so I've bought another one, this time it was KINGSTON SO-DIMM 8GB DDR3-1600MHz CL11, but still the same old story. Is there any way to fix this issue? Thanks in advance. Jind?ich

Dear Acer Community and Support,I am using an Acer Aspire V3 771G model notebook that I bought around 2 years ago from Finland. It has Windows 8 installed on it since the time I bought it. It also uses the Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222 model wifi/bluetooth component i believe with the 10.0.0.225 drivers. I have been getting along with it quite well since recently. My Wifi connection started acting up like turning off and on back after some time passes. So I went ahead and checked up the users that were having various problems with that, they all reinstalled their drivers and it seemed to fix the problem was what they stated. So I decided to reinstall mine as well I don't know what I was thinking then but I did uninstall the drivers from the device manager which might be a mistake. I then visited Acer's download page for the drivers and got the -263 driver which is more recent and wanted to install that instead, It asked me again for a second time to uninstall the drivers (since I didn't uninstall it completely before I guess, I don't know), and I did so and then reinstalled it. After It finished It asked me to restart and I went and restarted the computer. But  after that I noticed that there is no networks found on the networks section at the taskbar.I tried uninstalling it properly then and reinstalled it restarting each time of course.

(NOT FROM WEAR AND TEAR)- Graphics card never preforms properly. FPS is a guessing game anywhere from 5-60- Customer support is impossible to reach after warranty expiration. I'm not talking about Technical support. I'm talking about customer support.  Now, I know what you're thinking. Probably something along the lines of "oh this guy must complain about all his purchases" or "he doesn't know anything about technology". Not true. I know a lot about computers in general and normally if something I buy isn't right I suck it up and even avoid returning it.  But with this laptop, and 2 years of incredible and fluctuating levels of frustration I've had enough. Something needs to be done. I paid $1200 for a laptop that can be out preformed with a $30 desktop graphics card and a dual core processor. This is simply not acceptable.  This graphics card... You can never predict when it is going to preform at a playable framerate in video games. Any game, any engine, any graphic driver version, any OS. Tried game booster, adjusting my network, and countless other things.  I want to my complaint heard by someone at Acer and a response. Anything. Until then I wi... Read more

Answer:FURIOUS with my purchase of Aspire V3-771G!

I think you are dead on!  Any company that prevents any and all out of warranty support or customer service from reaching their offices is on the way out.  They really need to provide some human contact from their own representatives or face the consequences.  You will take 20-30 potential ACER/Gateway customers with you and each time they do this to someone else more will go.  In the day of social media this is a foolhardy way to do business.

Hi, my problem is that WiFi literally don't work - i can't connect to any network.I'm using Windows 8 Pro.It's a i5 + geforce gt 630M version.When i'm installing an Atheros Drivers, it says that device is disconnected and drivers cannot be installed.
Wi-Fi is totally turned off - I mean the led isn't lightning, blinking or nothing - it's dead.
I can't use Fn + F3, it don't work at all.
 
I've installed LaunchManager, Fast Lane, Touch Pad and Dritek Rf button.
Now, in Fn + F3 i can turn Airplane mode, nor Wi-Fi.Is there any solution to turn this on? It stopped to work from day to a day - yesterday it works, now it isn't.
Done some formats, it don't even work on Windows 7 with Acer drivers. Maybe card is dead?
 
If u had same problem, please help. I'm very thankful.
Sorry for my bad english, I hope the key words can be understood.

Hello, I recently was given a gently used Aspire 771G and was told all I needed to do was install a new hard drive and my own copy of Windows. I went out and bought a new 500GB HD and a new copy of Windows 7. When I try to boot up the laptop to get into BIOS to change the boot settings, I receive the message that there is no bootable device detected. When I attempt to boot up the laptop with the Windows boot disk in the DVD tray, I am able to select the DVD drive to boot from. After selecting the DVD drive, I then recieve an error stating that "atapi dvd blocked by current security". I can't change the security settings in BIOS because I am unable to even access BIOS in the first place. What can I do to resolve this problem? Any help anyone out there can provide will be greatly appreciated!

Do you know if this 771G originally had factory-installed Win8 or Win8.1 ? If so, you may have a UEFI bios that must be re-set to legacy mode for a Win7 installation. Jack E/NJ

My laptop's keyboard stopped working (only the "a" and "1" keys will work). I believe this to be a hardware problem and would like to know what the exact model for a replacement keyboard is and where I could purchase one. After some researching some opinions said to change the entire top plate of the laptop, if that is a better solution I would need the model for it as well. Thank you

Ok so I regularly play video games and work on this laptop but for a while when ever I hold the w key and release it the key would still act as if it is being pushed down and would not stop holding itself down. This also happens when I switch tabs and when that happens the w key becomes unresponsive for a while then it is able to be used a couple seconds/minute later. I am not having luck with cleaning the keyboard since there is no space at all to stick a spray in to remove dust or a way I know of to remove the covers of the keyboard but all my other keys are good. 

Answer:Keyboard unresponsive Acer aspire V3-571

Hi Th3da,
 
Unless you can feel that the key is sticky, I don't know that there is much room to clean and the design is mean to keep stuff from getting in.
 
If the W key is just occassionally not being recognized, it may be an issue with the contact and the KB may need to be replaced.

I can use the keyboard when starting in safe mode but not when windows starts??? The Tried reinstalling the driver but didn't work

Answer:Acer Aspire keyboard is not working

When Safe Mode works properly but Normal Mode does not, it typically means that a driver or some software has just been installed that is interfering with Normal Mode.The types of software that can do that are drivers, antivirus products, third-party firewall products, CD/DVD burning software or virtual CD/DVD software.If you can remember installing anything like that, uninstall it in Safe Mode then restart.

Hi all,I can get a good deal on an Acer Aspire E5-571G-59CT laptop.However there is one downside. They keyboard layout is in German. I think the German layout is QWERTZ?Anyways, I want to know if it's possible to replace the keyboard with a keyboard with a US-layout (QWERTY).I noticed several online shops are offering keyboards, but I rather be sure on this fact.I can find keyboards, with US-layout, for Acer Aspire 'E5-571G'-part, but not for 59CT model. Does that matter? I think the last part is only for the configuration, right? Can someone confirm this?The keyboard I found so far is: http://bit.ly/1EVk49kOn eBay even cheaper: http://ebay.to/1vjvXG9Thank you so far for responding. Highly appreciated.Regards

Answer:acer aspire one keyboard settings help :)

XP .. hmm yes there is.

You have installed XP without chaning the language and keyboard layout. Your keyboard is currently set to US layout (@ key = " key and vice versa).

You can set it to UK layout by going to the control panel >
click switch to classic view >
region language options >
click language tab >
under text services and input languages click the details button >
under installed services click add

There you can select your input language and keyboard layout

Hi GuysI own an acer aspire one v5-121 netbook ( 1 Ghz Amd Dual Core , 2 Gigs Ram , 500 GB HDD , 11.6" ) .Some of the keys on the netbook are malfunctioning . For example , pressing "Down Arrow" shows the digit "1" . So basically , one cannot move down a list of items in windows explorer using the down arrow - and it remains the same in all kinds of application - in the browser , while playing games etc . Simlarly other keys like "Delete" and "Insert" are also malfunctioning .  Another key that is working in an undesirable manner is the "Q" key . Whenever I use the Q key , for eg. in microsoft word , this "q" alphabet jumps to the starting position of the word which I were typing .  So all this makes the netbook almost un-usable for academic needs & beats my purpose .  Hope I can find the right solution to this problem here . THANKS IN ADVANCE
