Acer VN7-792G crash/freeze

Q: Acer VN7-792G crash/freeze

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.

Whenever I start playing an audio file on my Acer Aspire One laptop, it starts to skip and glitch on the sound, and it gets quite annoying. Something like "I know that" is turned into "III--IIII--I knnnn--nnn-nn-ooooo--oo-oooowww----www---w thhhhh--h-hhh-hhhaaaa----at". And sometimes, it'll even CRASH when it's playing something, and I have to reboot. I can't figure out what's happening, but plugging in ear phones won't help, so that leads me to believe that the problem lies within the hardware. So, anyone know how I can fix this?

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,

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 ?

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 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, 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.

My PC runs Windows 98 and has worked fine for 3 years. A few days ago it
froze while I was reading the New York Times online. When I restarted,
it's frozen, or opened in safe mode, or opened just fine, then frozen again
in a minute or 2. In safe mode I ran the Scandisk. The first time it
said that the standard scan was fine, but clearly there was trouble with the
Complete scan, although it did not say what was wrong. I took it to a
technician, who said nothing was really WRong, but there were too many
things starting up, and somehow my scanner appears to have been installed 4
times.

I cannot back up all my files on the zip because some are too big, and what
about programs I have downloaded like IE6, which also changed my Outlook
Express to ver 6. If the hard drive has to be reformatted with the disks
from 3years ago, will I lose it all?

Before I take the drastic step of reformatting, are there other things I
might try? I did install Startup Cop, and probably there are files that could be eliminated, but how do I know which?

Many thanks for any help.

HP laptop has been freezing and crashing a lot in the last few days for no apparent reason. CPU also runs very high at times even when I'm not doing anything. In the last while any automatic updates I've tried to run have failed including windows XP updates, HP updates and maybe one or two others. I started out in a software forum and a HJT was suggested. A friend also suggested some system utilities might be needed. A trend micro scan was also suggested but it still has almost 2 hrs to go (on dial up here ) Housecalls found 12 profiling cookies the 1st time through and this time it seems I'm good.

On 6/8/011 Bitdefender 2011 reported that there was a virus and to run scan and reboot, I did this, then Bitdefender would not update or give real-time virus protection. It then crashed my PC and froze all windows, so I un-installed bitdefender with the un-install tool, I then restored my PC to an earlier date, and then un-installed Bitdefender again just in-case there were any files left. My PC ran normal, but I had no protection, so I installed Bitdefender 2012, same thing happened crashed PC frozen windows, I could not turn PC off, and had to hold on/off button in etc, once again I un-installed bitdefender, the PC ran normally.
Then came the most frustrating 5 days of call centre phone advice I have ever experienced in my life, I sent all the files which Bitdefender required, to send to their labs, my PC came back as clean with no problems. Every time I called I had to go through the same proceeder, even when I gave the operator my ticket number, they just kept telling me to do the same things, that I had already done countless times.

Righty,

I mainly get these problems whilst playing newer games, though sometimes it also occurs to a much lesser extent when I have lots of tabs open in firefox and/or am watching internet videos.

First (usually), the screen freezes momentarily/the image flickers, and in games I sometimes get horizontal linear distortions across my screen.

Then a number of things can occur:

(most commonly) The screen goes black. It recovers itself (with applications minimised and with the message 'nvlddmkm has stopped responding and has successfully recovered')
(also quite common) the screen freezes, usually with distortions if I've been playing a game. Audio freezes but from the way it changes every few seconds it seems like the computer is trying to soldier on. Controls are completely unresponsive, forcing me to manually reboot.
The screen goes black. It doesn't recover, but audio indicates all the processes/applications which are using audio are carrying on normally.
Very rarely the computer will restart itself. ... Read more

I have what I assume are startup problems with my Acer Aspire 6530 laptop. I'm running Vista HP 32 with 4g RAM. My machine freezes everytime I start it up at anything between 5 and 20 minutes.

Hello I'm currently having trouble with this random Freeze/Crash. I just find it happening when it feels like it. Usually when these freezes occur what comes to mind is scanning my computer for Spyware and updating windows. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I still can't able to find what makes it does this.
The freezes doesn't just happen sometimes when I'm playing games it occurs even when I'm just browsing the internet, chatting, even it froze at the log in screen when windows start up.

Currently I'm using Windows Professional x64 bit. This problem also occurred on my last windows 7, which was Windows 7 Ultimate x64 bit. Both on the same computer. I'll post up my specs in a bit. Thanks :]

So i just got this freeze. It went like this, i had Spotify on, randomly the song was like BRRRRRRR, and i had to turn down the volume (couldnt move anything) > after 3 Seconds i could move > brrrrrrrr (cannot move) > THEN a last one, then it suddenly got black like the computer "closed down itself" Then it said on the screen (No Signal) and the computer restarted... 
 
I did make an log from MiniToolBox RIGHT after the computer got started up again, With "List last 10 Event viewer errors, List users, partitions, and memorysize, list minidump files" I attached the MTB LOG!

Hello guys,

I'm new in the forums and in the process of trying to find the answer to the problem, i found this awesome forum that seeks to inform and help people. That's like doing charity lol.

Anyways, i'll cut to the chase:

SSD: Windows and heavy programs installed in C:
HDD: Games and light programs in D:
HDD: Storage in E:
D: and E: are in the same HDD
Disk is defragged, registry is clean.No virus: Avast Scan.

My computer used to Blue Screen alot before, sometimes when i was playing a game or just web browsing! Then i proceeded to a BIOS update, disk check etc... All diagnostics that i've tried fail to tell me something was wrong. However, after that HDD would just freeze and then recover, but no blue screen what-so-ever.

Anyhow, i sent my pc to the computer technitian. He said it could be something wrong with the secondary HDD (D:&E: ) (not the windows SSD (C: )) or the SATA controlers failing to access the Disks. He also downgraded my BIOS in the process. He didn't test it further because i had like 1TB in data that didn't have any backup and didn't want to be responsible for any data loss.

Now, after i got my computer, it persists, but in different ways:
1-Simply freezes a bit when loading something (even a webpage with flashplayers and stuff, which means it accesses the SSD(C: ) for the flash player
2-Freezes a bit when i try to tranfer data to the HDD

Alright, I'm running windows xp, and I've recently run into a problem. Two days ago, I was downloading a movie, and when I got it my computer froze. When I restarted, everything was fine. Then I relized that everytime I go to "my recent documents" under the start menu, I get this. An program not responding message, like when you close an unresponsive program that says "windows explorer has encountered a problem and must be closed." then directly after, "Dr.watson debugger has encountered an error and must close". then the computer freezes. This is only when I put my cursor to look into my recent documents. ON top of this, for the last few weeks, my computer has been checkign the same disc,everytime I start the computer. I'm not sure if these are related. But back to the main problem. I assumed the video was bad, so I ran an anti-virus scan with my AVG. And I didn't find anything but tracking cookies. So, I assumed I must have screwed up a settign somewhere or something and tried to do a system restore, but both dates I took, said it couldn't be resotred to that date, when It says It can be. I don't want to re-install my xp and start over because I have important pictures and files on my pc. Any idea's or fixes would be helpful, if more info is needed let me know.

DEP can cause crashes. It normally should be on for max protections, but some apps may need exceptions. if you look in event viewr (type eventvwr in search) a DEP crash will say event ID 1000 source 100 and give the app data.

Hi, i'd like to request some help with my windows 7.
 
Today my computer just completly froze while i was browsing, had some game exes open @ same time. I waited around 5minutes hoping it would unfreeze, but nothing happened so i manually pressed the on/off button.
 
After that, computer got stuck in "Initializing Windows" screen so i tried to run the automatic repair and it frooze aswell.
Then i proceeded to make a usb repair disk and it managed to get me through the intializing screen, but when it managed to load back into the windows explorer (desktop), after a few seconds i realized the icons weren't even loading and i was unable to do any actions on the OS.
I've run the FRST tool, and it had no *ATTENTION* tags on the log on my 1st opperating W7 drive (D:\), so now i dunno what to do, i don't have a windows repair disk and i can't really format because i don't want to loose the data i have on the laptop.
 
Extra info:
About 1 year ago i had to install a second windows 7 (which is the one that crashed now), because my previous one (c:\) just stopped accepting USB hardware or even Wireless connection, not even the touchpad would work. And when i ran the scan for the C: it actually found s**tloads of problems accordingly to FRST, but i'm not sure that relates, since my other OS was working fine untill now.
Thanks in advance, ill try to extract the log asap

I have a problem viewing videos of any sort. When viewed, the computer will freeze for brief periods of time (less than a second to a minute or more) and in some cases enter an infinate loop where it will crash.

This started a many months ago and I thought the video card might be bad but then about a month and a half ago, the problem cleared up. No changes to the hardware or software were done. Then a couple of weeks ago, I rebooted the computer and when it came back up, a message came up saying that it was reverting back to the last known valid checkpoint and the problem has come back.

To date I have done the following:

Tried going back to various checkpoints
Tried replacing the video card with a freinds card that was known to work. My card worked fine on his computer too so the card is ruled out.
Removed and reloaded the NVIDIA drivers (latest update)
Checked for virus and spyware
Turned down the video card settings to lower quality
Went through and removed resident programs such as Adobe viewer which loads automatically at start up.
Removed Quicktime and Real Player
Disabled ctfmon.exe per Microsoft instructions (although it still loads)
Tried removing various loaded processes one at a time and then trying the video again

None of the above did anything for the problem.

Hello

I bought a new pc recently (q6600) which just had onboard graphics and a 450W psu. I bought a nvidia 9800gt and a new 600W psu as I thought that would be needed. Now I am getting crashes, mainly whilst playing games. When I say crash, I mean the screen freezes, it doesn't go black, but it's also slightly warped the picture. I thought this might be either the cpu or gfx card overheating, but it's also happened when there was little strain on either, and the cpu temp was only 39. This didn't happen before I installed the psu and gfx card, but then I wasn't really playing games before that as it only had onboard graphics.

Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?
 

A:Computer freeze/crash

Hi rubix1415 Welcome to Techspot!!

When your screen freezes as you say how do you use the PC again? do you need to reboot or can you ctrl+alt+delete and then end the process?

Have you installed the drivers with the graphics card? I'm guessing you would have with it picking up the picture but when you installed the drivers were there any problems?

Can i just ask as well what games you are playing? this could be important as some have had problems with some graphics card WOW in particular.

Finally how are you measuring the CPU temp? are you doing this through BIOS or 3rd party app

Thanks
