Have you ever try to change the RTC battery? (Real Time Clock)
battery..this device save your computer information,about the BIOS and CMOS
(BIOS=Basic Input and Output Circuit)
(CMOS=Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor)
This battery help to save all the information of your system,including the hardware,the hour and date etc.
Another thing that you can try is to check your hard disk, I change one yesterday to the laptop of a friend and is running like a new one.Even when I check the hard disk with the check disk application and appear that didn't have any problem.But the computer was freezing and took to long to make any command.
Try this two things and let me know.

My acer 5738G overheats when i run flash files, reaches temperatures of about 90 deg C and powers off.


Acer laptops are well known for getting to hot, from your description the temperature is excessive and needs to be checked into. The only advice I can offer is remove the bottom to expose the heat sink and ports, any dust or dirt should be removed. Next remove the heat sink and wipe off the old conductive thermal grease from the processor and the heat sink. Now apply a fresh thermal paste before putting it back together, this will dissipate up to 50% of the heat and hopefully solve your problem, the only other thing you can check is to make sure the processor cooling fan is running properly because they have a high failure rate.

Hi this is prince here from Bangladesh. i have a laptop that is acer travel mate 420. a few days ago its display is not working properly. some times it turn into various color. so what can i do?


Hi Prince, has your laptop experienced a squeeze or fall recently? I have a few suggestions. Plug another monitor into the VGA or DVI connection on your laptop. See if you are getting the same problem. If everything is working fine on the external monitor you would have eliminated the drivers being the problem. I suggest getting the LCD display changed. If your laptop is under warranty, you can get this done for free. However, if it is not under warranty you may have to replace it either yourself or take it to a local Acer specialist. If you chose to install the new display yourself, there are handy tutorials on removing and installing the screen on the Acer website. I have noticed that many times the Acer TravelMate Notebooks have experienced display issues. I hope you get your problem resolved soon.
Thanks for using FixYa.com!!

My laptop is stuck on cap lock, it highlites everything and I cant type in numbers I get the punctuation instea. how do i fix that?


Tap on your shift keys, one at a time, while typing any character; it sounds like a stuck shift key. If this does make a difference, you may have some debris blocking a key from returning to its rest position.

ACER APIRE 1700 FAN ALWAYS RUNNING


You could have dust blocking the heatsink fins and or the fan.
Loosen the dust etc. clean and vacuum the dust off.

Did you overclock your system? If so you need to restore it back to the original settings.
