Q: Help with problem with Acer Aspire One Network Adapter Problem

Hello Everyone,
I am new to this forum. I am hoping someone maybe able to help me diagnose and fix the problem with this problem. I have a problem with Acer Aspire One Network Adapter. The problem is that the netbook will connect to the internet and will have full bars for internet connectivity. Then a few minutes later it will just disconnect on it's own! I can usually reconnect by going on the Network & Sharing Center, then going into Diagnose problems, then clicking on Network Adapter, then after it resets, it will usually reconnect to the Internet, but lately it won't reconnect! I then have to restart the netbook. The netbook is running Windows 7 Starter, and it has Atheros AR5BXB63 Network Adapter. My friend who is a computer person searched online to confirm if the drivers were up to date, said that was not the problem. I would like any advise anyone can give me to see if this netbook can be fixed before I have to buy another! Please advise?

I recentley bought acer laptop, brand new. Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 Wireless Network Adapter it comes with windows 10 installed.  since I bought it, internet surfing is now smooth. even though it is connected to my home wifi, I have to refresh internet brower all the time, photos r xboxes. I called acer support 2 times, and told me to update network adapter driver, uninstall and restart , and download it from acer website, and re install. I tried everything, it worked, and when I turn it off and use my laptop again, it's still happening. so like when I need my laptop, I re install the network adapter again and restart computer, which is very annoying, and sometimes it's not even working!. When I connect it with wire to modem, it's working good, and with my Iphone, wifi internet working just fine. every device in my home is working good with my wifi, but my acer laptop. Is my network adapter totally broken? is it hardware or actually a software? someone please help me. Thank you

We're having trouble connecting to the internet via a wireless network. I've googled about it and surprisingly many people who bought the same product experienced the same thing. I've gone so far as to reformat and upgrade the OS for this netbook which is Windows 7 Ultimate and re-install some of its crucial drivers. I tried different wireless network drivers for it (Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek) but to no avail. Btw, I installed the drivers for its wireless network one after another without uninstalling the previous when such particular driver won't work, will that affect the system in any way? Also, the main question here is how do I fix the wireless connection for this netbook?

A:Acer Aspire One D255E wireless network problem

Here's what I did.
First, connect your wireless pc to the router with a cable, change the SSID & Password, making sure the encryption type is compatible for your adapter. Power off the pc, power off the router, wait 1 minute and restart it, waiting till all lights show connected then restart your pc, enter new password. Now if it works, old connections can be trashed.

I bought this laptop back in June and started having problems with it in August. I called Acer and they are telling me that it is a software issue to pay them $130 to talk me through fixing it. The wireless adapter will sometimes disable itself, but when it is working it will find the networks, connect and ask for the security phrase. When I type in the security phrase it says Windows is unable to connect.

I have tried two factory restores, uninstalled and reinstalled, updated the adapter driver which is for the

Atheros AR5B93 Wireless network adapter

I can connect with no problems using the ethernet hardwired.

I have tried several of the methods recomended on this site to fix it and have not had any luck yet.

I have two other computers connected to this network along with a PS3, all wirelessly and working great.

The computer has just had its second factory reset about 20 minutes ago and it still does not work.

Can someone please help me. Let me know if any other information is needed.

Have you opened up the access door on the bottom and reseated the adapter? Many times, they become loose in the socket and cause similar issues.

I have an Acer Aspire 5750. Recently, wireless connection has been spotty on my computer. Phone and other laptops in household work normal using our Wifi.

On my Acer, there is the F3 button that you're supposed to press with the Function button to enable/disable wireless. Unfortunately, that key and other keys on one side of the laptop are broken. So I use a wireless keyboard, that doesn't have that F3 wireless button.

Problem is I can't turn "on" the wireless function on my computer. There is no small switch on the external body of the laptop. Every time I tried to connect to my Wifi, I get a notice that it couldn't connect and to reset my network adapter. The network adapter Intel Centrino Advanced N6205 is enabled when I check the Device Manager. Says it's working normal. Without pressing the F3 button function, I can't find/get to that screen to enable the Wifi.

Any help would be awesome. Thanks so much.

Hi Guys, hope you are all doing well. My Sister has an Acer Aspire Desktop, and the other day it locked-up. She tried to end program but a Windows security alert popped up about a Virus trying to direct her to some Malware program. After she went there, (not knowing better) she then tried to Reboot and reset her User Account Password, but now it wont accept any Password. I tried myself, it goes directly to User Account Password, but when i enter every Password she's used, it keeps saying incorrect Password. I can't get passed this... Oh..BTW she doesn't have a Password Back-up on another Disc. Hope you can help me with this.. Thanks very much!

Since you cannot do the infestations, can you put it into a desktop computer as a slave and run the removal tools there?,

I have just bought the ACER Aspire T3-710 Desktop PC. I think I may have made a mistake. I thought I would go for a prebuilt powerful pc but I have already encountered problems. The disc drive is flimsy: the usb terminals are stiff and cheap feeling:the headphone socket is of poor quality: playing even simple online games and watching videos is a problem as the graphics freeze and the pc restarts. I would expect this from a cheap computer not from an expensive one. I have contacted customer support with no reply. I think Acer has now become complacent with its customers and quality of componants which will be detrimental to the company in the long run.

What exactly do you mean when you say you "hard reset" your ACER? I would start by going into your list of known wireless network connection and delete the wireless connection in question and then try to re-connect and let Windows recreate the connection for you.

Does this issue only happen from your network or are you unable to connect using any internet connection?

I have an Acer Aspire XC-705 that has the Windows 10 it came with plus openSUSE and Linux Mint installed. Neither of the Linux distros can boot the other, though each can boot itself and Windows. I can use efibootmgr within a running system to switch which bootloader is run by default, but I would prefer to be able to control which system boots at startup directly, so I am looking to use the firmware boot menu. Unfortunately, the firmware boot menu (F12) only lists Windows as bootable and does not show either of the linux distributions. Clearly the firmware does actually know about them, since I can use efibootmgr to activate them at the next boot. How can I get the firmware to display all installed operating systems in its boot menu. I've been unable to find any documentation for the Acer BIOS boot menu for this machine.I've been unable to find any options within the BIOS menus themselves to change the boot menu.I've not found anything useful by searching the web. Any help is appreciated. Cheers, Dave

Did anybody face the problem as similar to me as follows;

1. while formatting your hard drive ( local disk C) consisting window xp sp2 and installing new windows 7 or vista, producing noisy sound something like "peou, peou, peou".

2. after completion of formating and new installation of window 7, found that the recycle bin is already highlited and while pointing your mouse to "my computer" and double clicked to open my computer, instead of opening "my computer" it open recycle bin.
3. in continuation to this problem, in the words. after typing one sentence and while attempting to edit the spelling keeping your cursor in the middle of the sentence, it directly jumped to the end of the sentence even if touchpad made disable...

Run Disk Check , then your maker's HD diagnostics/repair full CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities

Try wiping your HD to reinstall. You may have infected or bad code which needs overwriting: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Make sure you have the latest BIOS version update, clear the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS

Use the drivers given by installer unless performance reasons require you to import another one from computer or device's Support Downloads webpage, where you will also find any drivers missing in Device Manager. You may need to try another chipset from computer Downloads webpage. It sounds like you may also need the touchpad software.

Study errors in Event Viewer>Admin View, google text and ID# to see how others have resolved them.

Install programs slowly over time to gauge performance changes, don't let any write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on startup/CPU/RAM and can spy on you. Troubleshooting with MSCONFIG

Clean and order the HD perfectly with CCleaner and Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers.

Call Acer and ask them to send you the VISTA disk because your hard drive failed... They may charge you $27 with shipping, bu tyou need it.
If you have valuable data on that Acer hard drive, you might want to save it using an external USB case... as you may need to reformat and reinstall the hard drive... if it is working at all.

Hey Guys,

I am trying to help a buddy out, I never had this problem before on a Acer trying to do a system restore using the software providing with the computer. I did ALT-F10 when i booted the system up. It loaded the eRecovery software, when i selected to do a complete factory restore it would loaded 100% of the restore but when it did the updating system (unsure what it's doing) it would hit 99% and hang although the mouse is moveable. I have searched online and I'm not finding my problem, i am finding similar ones. This is a netbook and i do not have a external optical drive, not willing to purchase this as this is not for my use and my buddy do not have the money to buy one either. I've called Acer and they told me i had to send it in, although I do not think its a problem that it needs to be sent in to Acer, if I put XP on the net book would that work fine. The System Specs are 10.1 inch display, 1.66GHz Atom Processor, 1GB DDR3, 250GB HDD. I think the system would run alot better if XP was put on to it instead of Windows 7 Starter. If any one knows how to fix this it would be great.
Thanks

I bought this Acer Aspire v 13 touch on Wednesday, and It came in yesterday really the only thing I did on it was download google chrome, microsoft office and a few powerpoints for school then watched a show and I experienced a few problems.  -I drag and dropped microsoft word, powerpoint and excel onto my desktop and it froze for about 5 seconds and gave me a notification on the bottom right that something crashed but was restored. Not sure what that was about. -When full screening my show, the sound still played but the picture froze. Today, I opened it and the fan started roaring for about 15 minutes then went off for about a minute or two and is still very loud and hasn't really turned off. Not really satisfied on a new purchase with having this many problems already. The worst out of all of them that's really an issue for me is this fan, no idea why it's so loud and on so constantly, it's not being blocked by anything either.

I'll start off by saying that I'm not even sure if this is the right sub-forum to be posting this question as it involves things from a few other sub-forums here too.

I have an ancient computer (and no intention of upgrading anytime soon as it runs everything I use it for) and I'm at a bit of a dillema with it. I used to be able to play R.O.S.E. Online Evolution when I had nothing but the integrated Intel 865G graphics perfectly fine. Now I can no longer play it because it apparently has issues with a few specific video card chipsets (GeForce 5700FX, GeForce 6200 (that's mine) and Radeon 9200). Now here's what I'm trying to do: I want to make a seperate partition on my hard drive soley for the purpose of installing the Intel drivers so I can still play ROSE ,however, I have no way of installing Windows XP again other than via my Acer recovery disks that came with my tower and I can't figure out how to create another partition using those disks. Acer tech support is being useless by saying they don't support dual booting with non-factory shipped OS (I don't want to use a different OS I want to use the exact same one) thus are unable to help me. Another problem I'm facing is the fact that I have no access to a Windows 98 boot disk for Fdisking a new partition nor a partition manager (bittorent is a no go because half the damn torrents are infested with trojans and other things not to mention I prefer to be legit in all aspects). So, how do I do it?

A:Acer Aspire T320 problem...

So what I'm guessing you want to do is to be able to change between your Geforce 6200 and your Intel graphics.

Well that is not something I would recommend doing. You should use one or the other at any given time. If you want the Intel graphics Driver, here it is. Before you can use the Intel graphics you need to use driver sweeper to get rid of nay remnants of the Nvidia graphics driver. You should be deciding to use one or the other as conflicting display drivers can cause BSOD's too.

Alrighty.. I've got a complicated one..

Machine is a Acer Aspire 5520 (not sure on the numbers - its a 55xx) notebook running vista Home Prem SP2.

Customers brought it in, with the DVD drive not working, was sent away to a repairers, drive was replaced tested ok then sent back (it was lost on the way back and took 3-4 to arrive but hey thats not the issue)

The customers brought the machine to me today, saying that once again the drive isn't working - which I thought was odd.. but heres the deal.

When Windows is is booted normally the drive doesn't function, at all. No power no nothing. if I run the microsoft fix it tool it says it can see that the drive isn't working properly or something, but cannot fix it.

When the computer is booted into safe mode, the drive functions normally - so you'd assume a fault with windows.. but here's the twist:

The BIOS doesn't see the drive, therefore you can't even boot from CD's - so how the hell would it work in safe mode?

I thought I'd just do a restore on the computer anyway to see if I could get it function in normal mode, called the customer asked them if it was OK to do a restore, which was fine.. but booted into the Recovery mode and was then prompted to enter the "empowering technoloy password" - called the customer; whats your password on the system recovery? - customer: what system recovery? what password?

I am currently helping a friend with his lap top. The computer is An Acer Aspire 5315 series (Model ICL50). I believe I have narrowed the problem down to the power system. First of all, while the charger is connected, the charging indicator light does not come on. If I press the power button while it is attached to the charger, The screen will quickly flash the "Acer" logo, then shut off once more. The machine will not turn on at all without the battery attached.

What I want to know is if my suspicions are correct. I believe the problem is the charging port. Does anyone know if these particular computers are known to have this problem? Is their any definitive way to test this? I do not believe the problem to be the cord itself because the little green light is on, and does not appear to be damaged or stressed in any way. And the lap top did boot up once without a problem, but shortly after logging on, began to beep loudly (battery low warning?) before shutting off.

Would I have to take the whole thing apart to tell?

Hi, i have an aspire E15 running on windows 8.1 that cannot run. After the power it will
say "preparing automatic repair,then diagnosing your pc and repairing disk errors", and this
take a never ending cycle. There will be a time that it will boot up but laptop is so slow and
always hung up.I also noticed that my avast antivirus is always off.I tried turning it on but will not.
But at the moment, its just the cycle of the repairing disk error and it is stuck in there. Any advice
will be appreciated.Thanks in advance.

Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place...

Last night, my sister asked me to fix her laptop, so I went ahead and attempted to do so, so I did the Alt+F10 combination to restore the computer to factory settings, everything worked fine until it the computer had to restart. Once it told me to restart, it ends up saying \Windows\system32\config\system is missing, and there shouldn't have been a reason why it said that. Seeing as my sister is irresponsible and never keeps her stuff, she doesn't know where her CD is (of course), so I asked her if she wanted me to downgrade her computer to XP instead of using Vista more, and she said she didn't really care what she had on it. I put the XP disc in, and it's not even booting from that disk. I thought I might have been burning the .iso wrong, but I tried KillDisk and Ubuntu and those aren't even working either. Any ideas?

Well a legitimate copy of Windows doesn't come in the form of an ISO so I'm closing this thread.

Hello all,
I'm not entirely sure I'm posting this in the right place, so, I am sorry if I have.

Anyway. Recently (2 months ago) I restored by Acer Aspire laptop with the back up discs I made when I first bought the laptop. After I booted the laptop again and logged in a box appears with "Install eRecovery solution". I havn't got a clue what this is.

I've tried to restore my laptop again but I can't for the life of me remember how I restore my laptop with the back up discs that I have. Not really sure what to do here, so I hope someone can help me with this as it's driving me nuts.

Oh, also I've noticed that I have no recovery partition in My Computer anymore, which might be the reason all this is happening, but again, I don't really know.

Here is a screenshot

i recently just rebooted my acer aspire m5641 desktop back to its original factory settings. Know i used the acer eRecovery program to do it. It was working fine until when i woke up this morning and looked at the computer and after going through the process of getting vista running this bar appeared that looks like its just ending the process of the recovery. The problem is that its been stuck at the same process for about 4 hours know. Its at 4/12 and it says eRecovery management please wait... There also is no D:/drive and before the recovery i had both c and d. All i have know is the c drive and the hidden drive for the recovery. I have no idea if it should really be taking this long to recover from the reboot or its just stuck. Please help if you can

Hello everyone, i recently got my pc back after 1 year (cause it was in another country with my sister) when i first turned it on it had some white horizontal stripes everywhere, and i said to myself let me restart maybe it'll be fixed byitself so it did, and i realised that it had too much to download and update so it got really slow and i wanted to restart one more time and again the white stripes kept coming again and stayed forever. my graphics card is ASUS STRIX GTX 970 OC (and it didn't had any problem last year when i first bought it). so now my question is, is the problem from the motherboard aka the PC or is it from the Graphics Card itself? cause i tried uninstalling and downloading and updating windows updates and every driver there is plus the graphics card is not being detected by the PC, it shows the model name but there's that exclemation mark and i did try removing the graphics card and put the dvi cable from the motherboard and it was fine, but the problem was from the Graphics Card.  So please let me know what you think and how to fix this, or do i have to buy a new gpu (graphics card) or does a format help? even though i tried resetting the pc but it's all the same, let's hope that it's from the gpu and not from pc so i can buy a new gpu (also does the gtx 1000 work on this motherboard or not?). Thanks alot guys please let me know of what you know and think.

A:Problem with flashing my acer aspire 7745G.

Hello Jack, I didn't find any jumper near the Memory banks nore anywhere else. So I dismount the Laptop as shown on youtube. After removing all the screws and dismounting the keyboard I finally reached the RTC Battery. 2 Buttons near the battery SW2 and SW3. I tried everything, remove the battery, used the 2 buttons (one after the other, both together, ...), with battery, without battery. Nothing worked. The laptop Switch on,  flashed briefly and the Fan started and stopped again.    At the end, I found the Laptop PDF handbook. I tried to make the Bios recovery procedure to boot in "crisis" mode as explained.  Nothing woked. Even if it had worked fine, I couldn'd find any Rom File by Acer to flash it again.  So I think I'm to stupid to handel with Acer Notebooks and will send it Back to Acer (to recycle it :-) and close the post.    Thank everybody for your help and greatings from a little sad and disgusted frenchmen.     Thierry.
