I upgraded my processor from a Intel Pentium Duel Core b950 to a Intel Core i7 2620m.  I've been using this website called CPU World to do this comparing specs.  I want to know if I upgrade my processor to a Intel Core i7-3840QM and based on what I've found it has support for for RAM DDR3 1600mhz... so I want to know will this work?  Will it read the 1600mhz of RAM once I get this processor inside?  This has been a topic I've been discussing with other people at another forum: Overclockers UK:https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18689308 I really do enjoy my Acer laptop and I want to do something to really improve it. My Current Laptop Setup:Acer Aspire 5750z8 GB DDR3 1333mhzSamsung EVO 840 SSD 500GBCore I7 2620M

Evening everyone, I was wondering why my wall charger works fine when it comes to charging my Acer. But, when I travel with my laptop and use one of those aftermarket car chargers, the lights just flash whether it's off or on. I can some times get it to charge if I wiggle the cord a little but that doesn't last long. The car charger was working fine previously, but it seems that once I replaced the power port this started happening a couple months later. Any ideas or suggestions?

Answer:Acer Aspire 5750Z-4835 Car Charger

Since the computer charges fine using the wall charger without wiggleing it, the charging port on the computer seems to be fine. I suggest you to check the car chargers cable.

Hello all.
My sister in laws Acer aspire 5750z-4885 was recently sat on and the screen is cracked. I was going to replace it for her but before I order a new screen I was wondering if it is even just the screen and not something else that I cannot repair. The laptop since getting the screen cracked will shut off after powering up in about 4-7 seconds or so I haven't used a stop watch lol.
I am wondering if perhaps there is a short or some other dmg caused by the screen being cracked that will not be remedied by replacing it. I have limited experience with cracked lappy screens. Thank you all so much for any and all replies I love this board and it has helped me many times in the past.
 

Answer:Acer aspire 5750z-4885 shuts off after 4 to 7 seconds

Yes, the cracked LCD screen can be the cause of the shutdown. Replacing the LCD panel is not that difficult for someone experienced, but for you it might be too much. You have to disassemble the top cover without breaking the plastic. The video cable might not be included with the new panel, so you would have to use the old cable. The cable connection to the panel is very delicate...

I started to do a full system recovery on my son's Acer Aspire 5750z, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using the (4) Recovery DVD's we made when we bought it. Everything was working fine through the first three discs. I was called away while the third disc was in use (maybe 10 minutes) and when I got back to the machine, the window was up asking me to remove disc 3 and insert disc 4. I did, and in the 4 hours and 15 minutes since then, nothing has happened. The Acer eRecovery Management (v8.3.2) Window is up. Step 5 "Restore Progres" is highlighted. The elapsed time counter is continuing to run (currently at 5 hours 8 minutes and counting), the "Restoring System" bar is full and shows 100%, and the "Updating System" bar is stuck at 2%, which is where it was when I put in the 4th disc. I am tempted to shut down the laptop and start all over again, but I am afraid that it will mess something up if I do...what should I do at this point?

Why?

I am NOT, sadly an expert with the Acer recovery program.

I don't know if stopping & restarting will damage your computer.

Which service pack of W7 HP 64 bit?

Logically, what choices have you; wait for X # of hours, or shut it down?

If you shut it down, boot to the W7 Recovery Environment & try a repair. It might find the files necessary to believe that W7 is currently installed.

Run Diags from Acer, that are probably built into the computer.

Which Acer Aspire 5750z? There seem to be multiple offerings.

There's a user guide here.

I'm pretty sure my Aspire PS-131 is an All In One rather than a notebook. Feel free to move this if it's in the wrong place. This morning, seemingly all of a sudden, my PS-131's bluetooth keyboard stopped working. I charged it until the light turned blue, but the tablet no longer registers the keyboard on the Bluetooth screen. Sometimes an Unknown device will appear on the bluetooth screen, but I can't connect to it.  I have no idea what to do and I can't find anything online about it. Has anyone else had this issue? Does anyone else have an idea about where to begin? I've tried contacting Acer's live chat, but the serial number on my tablet isn't verifiable.

Answer:Acer Aspire E1-431 Keyboard is not working at all (All key).

Try using the keyboard on another computer and see if it works. If it's a USB keyboard, you should be able to use it on your father's laptop. If NO keys work on EITHER computer, the laptop is most likely ready for the garbage dump. I suppose you could try opening it up and cleaning it, but if it's not a very expensive keyboard I wouldn't even bother. Just replace it.

(i'm going to try and explain this the best i can)My Acer Aspire E15 laptop's keyboard has stopped working so I'm typing this with an external keyboard. I've only had this laptop it for a little over a year and having the keyboard just stop working is very dissapointing and a little frustrating. Anyway, I was wondering if there was any possibility of getting this repaired, because I've been informed that the keyboards of these laptops are connected to the motherboard in a way that would require getting a whole new motherboard just to replace the keyboard. I don't know if this is true or if there is anyway to repair my keyboard without replacing the whole **bleep** motherboard, so if anyone knows it would be awesome if you could help me out. 

Answer:Acer Aspire E15 keyboard not working?

Not sure where they got that info. However you can replace the keyboard. That does take some doing. But I think a person would most likely replace the whole top part. That is track pad and all. I would say look on eBay for you type and see if they have any.When you take apart you remove power, battery, 14 or 16 screws from the bottom. Remove drive from the bay. Use old credit card to separate the 2 half. Then there is some ribbon cables that would need to be removed carefully. If you got the whole thing. Then put in New one same way you took out old. However if you just got the keyboard you will bee to take out 8 to 10 more screws peeling tape from the ribbon cables and to access the small screws then the keyboard can be removed. For me I would try and find whole top plate would be less work.James

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.

I just recently encountered a problem with my Acer Aspire E3-112 notebook keyboard that I had been able to fix and would like to share the solution with anyone who may encounter the same problem. I had used a USB flash drive to copy some files without any issues. Shortly afterwards, I noticed that the 8 key on the keyboard had stopped responding, but all other keys worked as normal. I had pressed Fn-F11 (NumLk) and the 8 key started working again. Pressing Fn-F11 again disabled the NumLk mode, and the 8 key also stopped working again. I tried rebooting the notebook, shutting down and powering back up, reinstalling keyboard driver, etc, but nothing worked. To rule out Windows OS related settings, I rebooted into BIOS, and noticed that the 8 key still didn't work when I tried to change the time, but the other number keys worked fine. The solution that finally solved the problem was to shut down the notebook, and then using a paper clip, push it into the Batery reset pinhole on the bottom of the notebook for four seconds. Upon normal powerup, the 8 key started working again. If your notebook has a removable battery, then removing and reinstalling the battery might have the same effect.

If it were me, I'd try the K/B on another computer. If it works, then you know the K/B is good and the issue must be the computer it's presently connected to. This would mean the issue is likely software(drivers). You might want to check the manufacturer's website and see if there are newer Windows 7 drivers for the device. If there are, download and install them and reboot and see if your K/B doesn't work then.It matters not how straight the gate,How charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate;I am the captain of my soul.***William Henley***

I have an acer aspire 5750z laptop and it is doing a variety of odd things and I am needing help in trouble shooting the problem. My main issue is, IT WONT TURN ON. 1) While plugged in, I will push the power button, the power light will light up for a second, there is a click sound, and then the whole thing goes dead (sometimes the screen will light up for a second). or 2) While plugged in, the LEDs indicating pwer and charging will blink 11 times, pause for a couple of seconds, and then proceed blinking nonstop.  or 3) I plug the laptop in and the charging LED lights up. However, it wont respond when I attempt to turn it on. I have tried cleaning the dust off of the RAM and the battery slots. I have also reset the battery.Basically, I need to know if there is an alternative to fix this issue, or if I should start saving for a new laptop. Addintional info- I have knowlege of computer parts and their functions and this laptop was never under any questionable or extensive use. Also, I have reset the computer to factory settings once within the severeal years that I have had it. Please help! Thank you!

Hi tripelks, I think you have done the right steps of cleaning the dust of the unit that sometimes can cause this type of issues an also making a power reset, at this point I think it might be the Main Board or other component like CPU. Now you mention that u clean up the RAM but have you tried with another RAM?

For the RAM, I'd like to go from two 2gb 2rx8 pc3-10600s-9-10-f2.1333 (together = 4gb) to the maximum suported by my hardware after the processor upgrade (something like 8-16gb).

Hey there Alex  I'd contact Acer's support to check if the laptop supports 4-core CPUs at all and, if yes, which of them are compatible with your laptop. I'd also ask for the memory limit and what would be the best choice for the best performance. Regarding the storage, it would really depend on what you are doing. A pure SSD would give you great improvements over the responsiveness of the whole system, decrease all loading times of the applications installed on it and give you faster access and transfer times. If you decide to go for a SSD I would recommend to consider two things:- to have it as your primary drive that would hold the OS and the most demanding applications and use the HDD (if you are going for a dual-drive setup) as a secondary massive storage. You can either do a fresh install of the OS (I would recommend that) or clone your HDD onto the SSD (I wouldn't recommend that as it can be quite risky for your data). - to check the interface of the optical drive's as most of the times a SATAI port is used and if you connect a SSD there it would be seriously limited to 150MB/s. Even if it's a SATAII it would be limited to 300MB/s rather than running at its full potential (if your laptop has SATAIII ports which have the limit of 600MB/s). Post back with some more info on what you are using the laptop for (besides the VMs).  Captain_WD.

Hi, I'd like to upgrade my Aspire 5750z. I'd like to take my processor from an Intel Pentinium dual core running @ 2.00GHz to an Intel i-series quad-core processor (I need a quad for running virtual machines). For the RAM, I'd like to go from two 2gb 2rx8 pc3-10600s-9-10-f2.1333 (together = 4gb) to the maximum suported by my hardware after the processor upgrade (something like 8-16gb). Also, I currently have a Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD3200BPVT 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" HDD with Windows 10 on it, and I'd like to either raplace with SSD or add SSD for seccond hard drive via the dvd drive with an adapter. Basically, I know where I need to go (as far as how much I need of something), but I'm not sure what I need to be compatible with my existing hardware. Any advice would be great!

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 >

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

I have had a problem with my aspire R14 laptop since first getting it a month ago.  When I press a key in a certain are of the keyboard the whole keyboard bounces up and down.  The problems is most noticible on the 7,8,9,u,i,o keys and is less noticible on the keys around those keys.  It is hard to type because those keys respond differently. If I press down on the laptop case above the keyboard all those keys respond just like the other keys.  So I think the problem is that the keyboard and/or case are not secured well in that area.  Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

Hi, newbi here, hello

I have an Acer Aspire One notebook. Two months ago I very stupidly spilled my cider onto my Acer, like a ninja I immediatley turned it upside down to dry out, I havent touched it untill this week.
It starts up, makes a high pitched noise until the windows start up, then shuts up. Key board not working very good, hit and miss as to whether keys work.
I plugged in another keyboard and this has been working until now.
I've tried re-booting but this has not done anything.
Now if I do manage to open anything, I cant do anymore than that, the mouse is working ok.
Is there anything I could do or should I just bin it.
Oh, and there arent any tech minded peeps in this houshold. :-o
 

Answer:Keyboard not responding on Acer Aspire One

One thing I can say, is the Sony Vaio has a very nice rubberized keyboard.

IF you are capable, I would take it apart, and THOROUGHLY clean it.

Other thing that bears mentioning, if it is possible to pull the battery from your laptop/netbook, pull it IMMEDIATELY should you spill any liquids on it.

That kind of goes for ANY piece of battery powered hardware.

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted anything.



I have a friends laptop I offered to help fix.
I don't remember the exact model, but it's an Acer Aspire One. Small older computer.

For whatever reason the keyboard stopped working properly. I disabled the keyboard drivers and they updated when the computer restarted. that didn't help. I also tried a side keyboard, that doesn't work well either. i did the number lock function fn+11, that doesn't work. The keyboard works some times and most the time it doesn't.

I went into the keyboard setting and tried resting it there and I went into the bios to see if anything was disabled, but everything was okay. i went even further, I unhook the keyboard from the laptop and tried using the side keyboard again and same problem. some times the computer starts acting weird. I go into the Internet(pretty much anything that has to do with typing) random numbers and letters start typing with the laptop keyboard and my side keyboard.

What can I do to fix it? I tried everything, I'm not sure if it's fixable. if i missed something ill reply as soon as i can.

Answer:Acer Aspire One Keyboard failed

Those can be really hard to fix. Youtube might have tear apart guides. But its better to just hook up a bluetooth or usb keyboard to it.

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 .

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.

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

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.

Posting on behalf of my girlfriend...

Not sure if it's software or hardware, but she's having an issue with aforementioned notebook keyboard - basically when she's typing in Word and gets up to a reasonable speed, the cursor will jump to an earlier part of the document and words will start to highlight.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Problem with Acer aspire 5720 keyboard

Usually the best fix is to replace the keyboard... about $30 to $50.
Try cleaning it thorougly with a can of difluoroethane gas such as dust off, as sometimes they are just dirty.
You might also attempt disconnecting and reseating all relevant cables.

My 6 months old Acer Aspire E1-572G, has works without any problems. But 1 month ago, the keyboard started not working at some times. It's not the whole keyboard that doesn't work, it's several buttons, which will in a period of time not work, and suddenly they work again. Sometime restarting the computer works for a while, but then the problem comes back. Nothing has been spilled in the keyboard, and nor have it been dropped, so i really don't think the keyboard should already have problem like this, and need a replacement. Anyone having a solutions for this, i would be very happy.

I have a problem with my keyboard, related to keys: s,d,g,h,m and caps lock. Sometimes they don't work. In a bit amount of time and after I pressed other keys randomly, they start to work again.
There are other 2 closed posts on this forum, same problem, same keys.

Useful information:
-my computer is a laptop acer aspire 5943G
-im using a 64 bit version of windows 7

Thanks for the help
 

Answer:Acer aspire 5943g keyboard problems

Chances are that the keyboard contacts are wearing out or it is full of dirt, try turning the PC upside down and gently tapping the keyboard, you may be suprised how much dirt comes out of it. You could also get a can of compressed air to blow out all the dirt, but if nothing helps a new keyboard may be the only solution.

Maybe it was because the battery ran out. In my defense, it should've been put somewhere visible. In any case, suddenly keys won't work. I can't use the left shift, D, Z, V, N, L and who knows what else. I've done a virus scan and a malware scan and both turned out fine. The only other options I can think of right now are looking for a way to boot in safe mode, finding where the screws are in this thing, or wait for tomorrow to get some compressed air, even though the odds of all those keys getting jammed up by magic flying crumbs seems extremely thin. On a side note, a few weeks before, it would suddenly get stuck on random when I type. Something would turn into sssssssssommeeeeeethiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing. It's even worse when you try to correcr it, you'd sometimes end up deleting everything before that word. Edit: Did a run on keyboardtester.comThe faulty keys make a symmetrical layout with the keyboard. "D K Z V N ." and the up and right arrow key.That can't be a coincidence. Aliens?

I need help with an Acer Aspire 7750G-9810 laptop. The keyboard has mostly stopped working. A few symbol keys and the backspace key work as well as the numeric keypad. The letters do not work at all. I had closed the laptop and when I opened it up to use it next the keyboard did not work. I have tried restarting the computer using normal shut down as well as a hard shut down (holding the power button down until it shut off). I have checked the device manager, it shows it is functioning properly. I also checked the driver, it says it is up to date. The touchpad mouse is working. Anyone have any advice on what to do next? I can use the onscreen keyboard or a wireless keyboard.

Answer:Acer Aspire 7750G Keyboard not functioning

Tango-n-Boots,
 
As long as nothing was spilled or the unit was dropped that would typically mean that the keyboard itself could be defective, the keyboard ribbon could be loose, or the motherboard could be defective. Depending on your level of expertise, you can check the ribbon cable to make sure it did not come loose from the motherboard, otherwise you might have to take the system to a local technician and see about getting some assistance.

Hi there, Several keys have died on my daughter's V5-473P keyboard.  I searched here and all I found were lots of customers complaining about failed keyboards with no answers, so I ordered a $20 replacement keyboard on ebay. My question is about how to remove the top panel/bezel that surrounds the entire keyboard and touchpad?  It seems like any effort to use a thin lever to pry it up would damage it...  Do I need to come at it from the bottom by removing the motherboard, etc?  I'm trying to repair this on the cheap, since it's barely out of warranty and after removing the bottom case, I find it's falling apart around many of the screw holes (the bottom case appears more pricey than the keyboard). Thanks.
