Laptop Shutdown Issues

Hi...hoping someone can help. I have had my Acer Travelmate for almost 2 years now and it was working fine until recently. There are two problems: 1) The sound for the left and right speakers only comes out of the right speaker. You can hear the left coming out of the right speaker as well but for whatever reason it won't come out the left speaker. I have tried downloading updated Realtek Audio drivers for it but that does not help. 2) The second issue is the laptop now shuts itself off after being used anywhere from a few minutes and if am lucky up to a few hours. I was wondering if it is a problem with the battery having to be changed since it has been used for almost two years or if it is another problem entirely. If anyone can help me, especially with the second issue, please respond ASAP. Thanks.

Re: Laptop Shutdown Issues

1) For sounds, you can check the sound properties and see if the balance is set right for the left and the right speaker. Alternately, move the balance to the left and see if you hear anything 2) There can be lots of reasons why the laptop would shutdown automatically. Does it shutdown or would just turn off without a proper shutdown. It can be due to some device - especially the processor getting heated or some device is not getting enough power for the system to remain up. Please revert back with further observations.

Acer aspire m5 won't charge

it sounds like one of three things:

1. Battery itself no longer functions
2. Laptop Charger has inadequate amperage
3. The motherboard is defective (most likely).

If you have another battery, or a friend with the same battery, you can try that first (and someone else's laptop charger).

If the problem is the motherboard, you can try to have it repaired but I don't trust many companies to do this kind of work. I outsource my motherboard jobs to a company called Laptop Rescue ( Coincidentally, they also sell laptop chargers in case that's the problem. Hopefully it's just a charger or battery issue and not a motherboard.

Hi, My Acer - Travelmate 5720 laptop is not booting suddenly, It was only 2 years old. I cant see the power lights switching on in the laptop but adapter is workign fine. Could you help to solve this...

sounds like a system board failure. try to remove the battery, hard drive if possible and the memory modules, then try to switch it on again using the adapter. if you still do not see any indication of power going to to the laptop, you'll need to get it serviced and most likely, the motherboard will need to be replaced. hope this helps and a rating would be appreciated

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!!

Blank white screen in my Acer Travelmate 5730 Laptop

Hello Karthik,
This must surely be a problem with your monitor, because you say that you see the white screen while boot up. If this is a graphic driver issue, you may have the problem after booting up in windows. Since its been only a month old laptop, the product must be in warranty for sure. Take away any CDs in the drive, any USB drives and see if this white screen appears. Let us know.

Thank you!

Check to see if the drivers are loaded for it in the device manager. This device may also need a utilities driver in order to function properly. You can find these drivers at Acer's support site or at If you use Acer's site, be patient, their site isn't the easiest to navigate, but the drivers are there.
