Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

4920 response Thank's so much for your advice regarding the fan on acer 4920 model. Just another quick question - well questions really. I bought this model for the size of the screen and price. But as i wll be using it for writing/research it is pretty distracting having this fan start up - it does seem rather loud or maybe i am just being a wuss. Anyway i can return it losing about £60 in the process. It cost £350. So my question, finally, is do you know of any brands under £400 that you could suggest with a 14.1 screen that may be a bit quietier. Don't worry i am also looking - and would using an xp op sys result in a quietier fan on any potential purchase? Haven't completely given up on this model as i could by some ear plugs i guess. Any help would be great, Ross

I don't have any personal experience with other models, i look after 5 Acers, all are atleast 4 years old and running as good as new, if you are not happy, return it as i am on an Acer 5610 at the moment and the fan is not really noisy, different noise on different surfaces; although it cuts in and out every 2-3 or so mins.

I have lost my lead to my acer laptop aspire5100 series model number BL51 19v .474Acan you help.I am a mature age person thanking you Pat


There are two solutions to this problem, Pat.

One is to buy the correct AC adapter (Charger) for the laptop.
Two is to buy an aftermarket AC adapter that will work for your laptop, but will also work for many other laptops.

1) http://www.usbphoneworld.com/acer-adapter-19342-65w-lc-adt01-aspire-5520-ac-acer-aspire-5100-ac-adapter.html?CAWELAID=950033775

The above is from a quick search. Your search may be better. Just put Acer Aspire 5100 charger, in your search box.

2) From another quick search,

http://www.atbatt.com/laptop-chargers/b/acer/m/aspire-5100.asp?utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_keyword=Acer+Aspire+5100+Charger&utm_content=NAC-X90-22&utm_campaign=google0&gclid=CLeDr7qIlqsCFQ9S7Aodvn_TXA

Would also like to commend you for your intelligence.
Stating the Voltage, 19V, and the Amperage, 4.74A ,is a really intelligent thing to do.

(The charger MUST have 19 Volts for the Voltage. The Amperage (Amp's, or A), can be more)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

No this is quite common, more so since dual core processors as they need cooling more often, you may find it even comes on when surfing the net, because there are allsorts of processes going on in the background, especially in Vista models

Your Asus was lower spec and thats why the cooling fan was less noticeable, some laptops require the fan torun 99% of the time, so enjoy your Acer, they are very reliable.

Acer aspire 2920z wireless driver


I had the same problem and finally it worked after I have installed Foxconn Wireless LAN Driver (v.4.170.64.4) downloaded from acer Aspire 2930Z (not 2920Z!) drivers page.
Now it works fine.

Problem with Acer Aspire 4920 notebook


all laptops are supplied with a pre installed copy of windows and the product key will be on a genuine windows sticker on the back, unless you have no sticker, in which case you will need to purchase a copy, as nobody is likely to be able to help if you have no product key and no Vista disc
