Fujitsu siemens Amilo D 7830 CMOS battery keeps dieing

Hi. I unfortunately have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo D7830 laptop bought from new about 4 years ago. The whole thing is breaking up on me faster than I can mend it (failing hard disk, keyboard needs replacing, plastic cracking etc).

After having just replaced the hinges (lid is too stiff and the struts broke over time), I put it all back together again and when I switch it on I am faced with a black screen and a fan that whirrs. There are lights but it doesn't even boot up the BIOS. I remember that it did occassionally get into this state when I left it processing all day last year and it probably got too hot.

So I opened it up and replaced the CMOS battery (CR2032) , screwed it all back together and the computer boots up. Wahey! So I go into BIOS and it asks me if I want to load optimal default settings. I say yes and it asks me again. I say yes again and it freezes. So I unplug it and switch it back on only to have the the black screen, the whirring fan and unable to boot up the BIOS. I don't want to waste another CMOS battery on it if it's going to do the same thing again. Anyone got any ideas what the problem is? I am completely lost as to what to do now. Laptops become obsolete quickly enough, I didn't need it to break apart even more quickly.

    Turned out I needed to replace the thermal paste on the CPU. Everything worked after that. Although I did have to do my backups outside in the snow to stop 5 minutes at a time before attempting it.

As an update to this, I've been able to boot it up a few times since posting this, but it never gets as far as being able to boot up an entire operating system before freezing.

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572

. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

Bluetooth & sound


Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service
