Acer VN7-792G CRASH - Tried everything

Q: Acer VN7-792G CRASH - Tried everything

Hello. I have a lot of issues with my Acer VN7-792G for a long time.First time I received the laptop, I had several issues with the Nvidia drivers while playing games, the GPU would overheat and freeze the laptop completely, along with a very unpleasant noise. It does that even on Very Low settings. I could finally find the answer to my issue when someone on Nvidia's forum told me to never update Nvidia drivers on laptops. (I was always updating to the latest driver through GeForce Experience)I followed his advice and got back to the driver provided by the manufacturer's website (which is 359.xx), since then no issue occured, I could play games on High/Ultra 120fps without freezing/crashing. I reinstalled Windows recently through the ISO provided by Microsoft's website. I disabled Windows Update to update the drivers, and I installed all the drivers provided by Acer's website for my computer, using my serial number. But after few minutes of playing, I still experience freeze/crash, and by that I mean the laptop completely freezes and the only thing I can do is to force shut down, holding power button for few seconds. The laptop is very hot at this point. Highest temp I could record for the GPU was around 70-80░c before it freeze/crash.So I'm starting to think that the problem isn't from the Nvidia driver anymore, since the moment I reinstalled Windows 10 (64bits). Also, apart from the GPU really overheating, now the HDD seems to heat a lot too. I performed a complete CHKDSK /f /r which took all night long to complete, nothing wrong came back. There are several BIOS updates available on Acer's website for my device, but I didn't install it, since i'm not sure if it's a good thing to do or not.

I've read a lot of threads about this, my only purpose of creating another VNitro crash thread is to ask help, on wether I should do the steps above on my laptop, since every laptops are not all the same (not the same components on every VNitro I mean), I'm asking for help for mine.

I'm kind of lost.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi and wellcome, First update BIOS, if you don't have the latest updates. It is highly recommended since as you can see some update the VBIOS, which has a link with the video. Also it updates the management engine which monitors various parameters (eg temperature) on the notebook. Second be sure you have installed the intel management engine drivers from the acer drivers download page. XTU will not break the warranty, but be careful because it can cause system instability if you undevolt too much. Since you have a 792G, which is bigger than any 59XG notebooks I don't think you should have any issues with thermal throttling. So I would not set the CPU to 99%. It would limit the system performance.

Hello, I did find a few threads about this but for other models, so I take my chance. I would like to buy a new ~240go SSD M 2 to upgrade my laptop.Can anyone confirm that there is actually a M 2 port inside ? I believe yes since I watched a few videos, but the laptop seller's website does not talk about it, so i'm confused. Is there any better SSD than another for compatibilty with the 792G ? I would like to use it as my main drive with Windows on UEFI in it, and the HDD I had will be used for storage. Same goes for RAM, what is the maximum RAM supported by this laptop ?

My new VN7-792G arrived a few days ago and is a very nice machine indeed. The only odd thing is that the Fan seems to be quite loud when is starts going. I had an XPS machine before this so I am used to noisy fans, but this is quite high pitched and sounds almost as if it's imbalanced and reminds me of fans in old machines that begin to whine towards the end of their life. Oddly, the noise decreases if I lift one (or both) corners beside the hinges even slightly. I've also tried it on different surfaces in case it was a vibration issue between the laptop and the table it was on, but no success. Has anyone experienced anything similar, or is this normal?

A:Acer VN7 792G Fan noise

I think I had a very similar issue on VN7 792G, a noise like whistling. I was about to return the product but I think I fixed it. You probably won't like the solution. One of the below solved my fan noise issue (I don't know which) 1- Opened the case and investigate anything that might vibrate due to fan. First I saw that Acer forgot one of the screw of the mainboard so I placed a new one and screwed motherboard firmly no prevent any vibration. Also close to larger fan plastic casing of the (vibrating) fan was touching to the (stationary) case.  I put a soft electric band in between. 2- I put a little machine oil to both fans. This part is tricky, you need to know where to put (check online), also you will need an oil with small sized needle heads. It possible to access fans after removing keyboard. I suggest not turn upside down for sometime if you decide to put oil. best,

Hi guys, I seem to be having issues with my secondary hardrive (to the best of my knowledge). If I am watching  a video/movie saved on it, occasionally the video wll hang for a few seconds.If I am downloading something to it, or copying a file to it, sometimes all progress will stop/downlod will stall. Then if I try and go to a folder saved on it, windows locks up and it can't load the folder or access the HDD. Today, I was watching a movie and downloading something at the same time. The download stalled, and the movie completely locked up. When I tried to fix it, WIndows crashed and I was foreced to restart.  I have changed my power settings to never put the HDD to sleep (although it occurred to me that maybe this is just controlling the HDD windows is installed on (which is the SSD)). However if I am actively downloading and watching a movie, surely it wouldn't put it to sleep. What else can I do here? Any ideas what the problem is? Is it a faulty HDD?

Hi everybody! Approximately a month ago I bought this laptop. A few days of work I had found that my eyes are tired extremely fast and when I use another notebook or external monitor they just relaxing. I tried all possible settings but it is hard to work with screen not only in Windows, but in Linux too. Even if you just go to BIOS, your eyes just crucifying. I found different LCD tests and has cheched this notebook LCD. I had found that phasing test fails, after that I just went to service center and they had replaced screen. All tests passed well. But I felt not comfort while working on it. My eyes strained less but this not comfort effect had left. And I asked my friends, they said that they do not feel comfort with this screen. My oculist says that I have a healthy eyes and all problems is with that notebook. So it passes all online screen tests but harms my eyes. Service center cannot take this to repair, they say that there are no problem with the screen. I do not know what to do... Some people says that it is display controller problem and to fix it just need to flash new rom. But I have the latest BIOS 1.0.9...Any suggestions? Now I must work via HDMI to save my eyes...

Hi, It's perfectly normal. It's a notebook with small heatsink and not a PC with a huge fan and heatsink. The temperatures are normal, and it can go even higher which can cause your CPU and GPU to throttle.In case of the 792G since it is a 17 inch one, you probably will not have problems with throttling because it can have bigger airflow than a smaller 15 inch one. And regarding the battery. Is not removable, or you can remove it just if you take apart the notebook. But generaly is not a removable battery.

Hello, I hope I can get some help here

First off some information:

- Notebook: Acer Aspire 5551G
- Used since: About 6-7 year old (owned by a friend before)
- System: Windows 7
- CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 P320 (2.1GHz)

- HDD: 320GB
- Battery: 6-cell Li-ion

Now to the problem:

A few days ago, the screen crashed in a strange way. First, it showed some pixel chunks all around in multiple colors, similar to those old TVs without programms but colorful and not moving pixels at all. It was like this just for less than 5 seconds, then, it just went blackscreen. The power LED stayed on but as I didn't know what to do I hold it pressed for a shut down. I turned it on again after a few minutes, it just said that it had crashed but thats all, Windows went on as nothing had happend.
I had not been doing anything special at the moment it crashed, I think it was just Youtube if I remember right

I luckely got a bad feeling and immediatly saved my most important datas in a USB.

A day later I turned on the notebook for some music while I was cooking (just standard windows music player). I was coming back to change the song as I saw it from afar crashing again. This time the screen was full of vertical colorful lines. Few seconds later, again blackscreen.

Since this it does not turn on anymore. The power LED lights blue, it seems like it wants to start, the screen stays black. It takes like a minute, then the LED turns off. The strange ... Read more

Hi there,

Your problem is definitely a hardware issue and it looks like it's either the integrated video card or the LCD screen. Do this, get your hands on a spare working external monitor and connect to the VGA port of your laptop. See if the same problem occurs on the external monitor. Good thing you backed up your important files onto your USB flash drive. Hope everything works out well for you and feel free to ask more questions.

Guys,

Whenever I start playing an audio file on my Acer Aspire One laptop (OS Windows XP SP3, Atom 1,6 with 1gb ram), it starts to skip and glitch on the sound.

And sometimes, it will even crash (Blue Screen) when it's playing something, and I have to reboot.

I can't figure out what's happening.

I tried to update the bios drivers, the soundcard drivers. I verified the system with chkdsk and others utilities to repair possible errors in system, but I cannot resolve the problem.

I reinstalled the Windows Media Player, XP Codec Pack, Realplayer, and the problem persists.

So, anyone know how I can fix this?

Hi,

I have an acer 7720 laptop which I've been running happily for a couple of years with Vista32 preinstalled. Recently I decided to install windows 7 (32) ultimate. I didn't scrub my HD when I did this, my old vista windows folder is still kept as a backup in my drive.

The Windows 7 installation went fine, however now I occasionally get a crash - about once every 7 hours or so and it seems to happen quite randomly (not related to a specific task). Not even a BSOD; the laptop just powers off instantly. Running my windows 7 troubleshooter it suggested updated my BIOS.

My question is this; is this problem likely to be anything to do with BIOS? Afaik the bios has nothing to do with the OS. I can go ahead and reflash my bios to the latest version but I'm reluctant to do this unless I know it's the problem (scared of bricking my laptop).

Any advice?

Thanks in advance

A:windows 7, BIOS, acer 7720 crash

You could try the BIOS update. Its unlikely that it will help unless your laptop is shutting down to prevent overheating. However, I would try a clean install of Windows 7. Side note: You shouldn't really worry about bricking your laptop doing a BIOS update. As long as you just let it do its thing and don't interfere until the BIOS update is done.

My Acer 5742 laptop is not able to reboot during start up. It says: "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer."
I called Acer and they say that my warranty is over (even I paid for the 3 yr extended warranty at future shop) and they put me to a 3rd party repair shop based in India which asked me to pay for their repair service. I brought it to future shop(best buy)) they want me to pay $99 for initial trouble shooting and more money for the other technical repair because they say it is software problem. Unfortunately, when future shop did the laptop set up, they did not save a recovery disc or Windows 7 discs for me. How can I repair my laptop from here. Will appreciate any help. Thanks.

A:Acer 5742 crash-window 7 repair

You would need to run startup repair (three times with a restart in between each if necessary) - Startup Repair

If your System Spec is right, you should install 64bit since you have 6GB RAM. However, there is no upgrade path from 32 to 64 bit. So you would have to clean install Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Can you not find a 64bit Home Prem installation DVD from a friend?

If you need to get your user files/data off try booting with Linux Mint MATE (if asked choose TRY and not install) and copy them to an external drive.

Hi everyone,

I have a rather old Acer Aspire 5536G that I have been struggling with for the past couple of days.

To start with I got the 'Acer Black Screen of Death' that is mentioned elsewhere that I think I have resolved by removing the ram, hard drives and power and holding the power button to reset things.

The screen now works & the PC boots all the way to the loading Vista screen - the progress bar appears but then there is a very brief flash of blue screen (I am afraid it's way too quick for me to read or get a pic) but after this the systems restarts.

I would be grateful if anyone has any idea of how to fix this!

p.s. I can get into phoenixBIOS, if that helps. Safe mode also crashes.

Thanks in advance

I bought the machine in June and it was silent, but now we're hearing a very low volume hum/buzz (kind of like a mosquito passng by your ear, except 3 octaves lower) more and more frequently. It emanates from the right side - approximately under the Enter Key vicinity and occurs intermittently for maybe 2 or 4 seconds as the machine is actively processing data or updating webpages. It's not correlated with the fan turning on/off. Any ideas?

Hi,Since the beginning I own this laptop it overheats. As soon as I play a game the CPU temperature will go up and fluctuate around 80-100 degrees celcius. I had to manually turn down the maximum CPU speed to about 60% in energy saving settings to keep it under 70C. This of course has quite some impact on the speed of the laptop. I cannot do the things advertised on the product page without hurting the laptop (assuming 100C is dangerous for a processor). What can I do?

Hi
So I own an Acer 7741G laptop and at a certain point, while shutting down, I had to shut it down using the power button because it was stuck somewhere.
- At first I could only use it in safe mode. When I tried normal mode it just stopped and went back to the startup screen (the one in which you choose the start up mode (normal, safe, safe with network etc...)).
- After that the laptop screen went black and I could only work with an external monitor from that point (coincidence? i don't know). Still the same thing: only in safe mode.
- While doing stuff in safe mode I suddenly only saw snow so I had to shut it down with the power button again.

Now I can only power my laptop on (all lights are burning correctly) but black laptop screen, black external monitor + the fact that it still only works in safe mode)

Any advice would come in handy considering these multiple problems
I never had problems with this laptop uptil now (own it for 2-3 years)
big thanks in advance

Hello, My Acer randomly BSOD with PNP error and after restart I have no sound and I get a red x on my speaker icon in the lower right corner where the clock is. I checked the Device Manager and I get a yellow exclamation mark under System Devices and it seems the problematic device is Intel(R) Smart Sound Technology (Intel(R) SST) Audio Controller. Under Sound, video and game controllers I have only one driver left - NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM). When I click View --> Show hidden devices it shows the audio drivers which means they are disabled somehow, I think? Anyhoo, I've updated the problematic driver and hoped that this solved the issue but to no avail. I'm afraid to uninstall the driver because it's under System Devices and not under Sound, video and game controllers categories. I am starting to think it might be an hardware issue, but I seriously hope not. Perhaps you have some ideas what I could try to fix this?

   How can i replace the hdd for a ssd in my Aspire VN7-792G?

A:replace hdd for ssd in aspire VN7-792G

Hi,You need to familiarise with disassembly procedure by watching videos, you need to decide which type of SSD you actually want to install, you have the option of replacing the current HDD with 2.5" normal SSD or M.2 SATA SSD.Now, you need to back up your current drive image to another external hard drive, and create a recovery disk using a program like Macrium reflect or similar program.Then you need to install the SSD, go to BIOS and make the dvd/USB as the first boot, connect the external hard drive, insert the DVD/USB recovery disk, reboot.Now, you can recover the image you backed up earlier to the new SSD.If you need more clarification, please post your question.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhqm2yg_aiI&t=466shttp://www.macrium.com/help/v5/How_to/Rescue/Create_a_Standard_Windows_PE_Rescue_Environment.htmhttp://kb.macrium.com/KnowledgebaseArticle50074.aspx

Windows 10 has been updated as well as the BIOS and chipset but it will not see the 960 EVO ssdd.I have a Windows 10 install on an 850 EVO SSD and the drive still doesn't show up.  I haven't upgraded my personal computer in sometime but this BIOS is extremely limited, basically has options for boot order and Legacy/UEFI only.  Is there anyway to unlock this w/o having to mod it? There's lots of cross talk on the forums as to whether it's a SATA or NVME capable M.2 slot on this laptop.  I've spent a good deal of time on this and would really like for it to work.  Thanks in advance.

So I connect a 1080p TV to the HDMI port. Detects fine. But when I connect it, it displays in 720p (or something close to it, looks like 720p). Desktop Right Click > Display Srttings > Select TV > AdvancedThe resolution field is empty. Can't set it here, but I can for the built in display. *shrug* So instead...Desktop Right Click > Graphics Properties (which is Intel HD Graphics)I select the TV... It claims to be set at 1920x1080, which is BS. So now the real fishy part. I set the TV to mirror the built in display. My built in display is now at 720p, but HD Graphics claims I have them set at 1080. As soon as I disconnect the TV, the resolution on the built in display scales back up to 1080p. Icon sizes change, etc. It's very obvious something is not right. Any ideas or suggestions? I've tried everything I can think of. Oh and, I'm a Desktop tech. Something like this should be trivial...

Hello. My Aspire VN7-792G got some beer spilled on it's keyboard by someone while I was not at home and now no longer turns on.The Power Off USB Charge Port still charges my phone when I connect a USB cable to it.The Light that confirms it recieves power from the AC (both blue and amber lights).My thoughts are that the beer messed up the stuff under the power button (which is integrated in the keyboard apprently) and no longer works.Is there anything I can do to turn it on in a different way?Any thoughts on this?

Sound on my machine cuts out randomly.  Reinstalled audio driver but it still happens.  I think it is hardware.  If I tap on the case, I can get sound to come back.  Acer wants me to send it in for repair but I don't want to be without the machine for two weeks. I tried headphones (they work).  I am suspecting the headphone jack itself - maybe a bad mechanical connection where it switches from speakers to headphones. Anyone else have this problem or a solution?

Okay, I couldn't find anyone with this problem, so I'm creating a new post. One month ago I've bought VN7-792G and I'm satisfied with it. But there is one strange problem - during certain events (receiving notification via Facebook/Steam, when launching a sound file or jumping through a YouTube video) I can hear a silent "tick" sound from lower left corner of my laptop. I've tried updating BIOS and sound drivers, but this problem persists.

I just picked up one of the 4k models with SSD and HD.  I'd like to put in a bigger hard drive but it's a PITA to open this thing up so it doesn't seem worth it just to put in a 2tb drive.  Will a 15mm 4tb drive fit in there? (I know I can get an adapter to put a 9.5mm drive in the optical drive bay much more easily than replacing the internal hard drive.)
