Question about Acer Aspire 9500 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 9500 Temporaily hangs and won't boot

The following error is generated in System under Event Viewer:

Source: Atapi
The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the timeout period.

The laptop randomly hangs for a minute or so then comes back. Sometimes during startup the BIOS can't find the boot device and is asking me to select a new one. Restarting it a few times will finally get it to boot. The HD appears to be fine. Is this likely an ATA controller? If so does anyone know if the ATA controller can be replaced or is it part of the mainboard? Thanks!

Please check this list What beet you receive? Its better that you could post the BIOS model.
Check this link
You can understand what kinda error you have in your configurations. If you see this on the boot time (after the POST* has run) that might be a problem with a hardware device. Such as a removable drive (atapi device - cd rom drive) or connectors.
Boot the machine and when you are in Windows: Start -> Run (or win key + r together) and type this in and enter. Eventvwr.msc In the event viewer window navigate to System. Check for Red X marks (errors) and Yellow ! marks (warnings). You will be able to find the problem in their as well. That is not guaranteed but there is a good chance of the message being logged by the Event Viewer. (Remember the time when you booted it. Log is sorted using time.)
We are ready to assist you further.

Inspiron 8500 laptop (80GB) intermittant boot failure


Hi

Thank you for your query

If there is a clicking noise inside then the hard drive is on the way out, the arm that reads the data is knocking against the plates, thus the noise

I would recommned that you back your data as soon as possible as the drive will eventually fail

My leptop acer 4720zg physical dumping error


1) Examine the “System” and “Application” logs in Event Viewer for other recent errors that might give further clues. To do this, launch > Eventvwr.msc from a Run box; or open “Administrative Tools” in the Control Panel then launch Event Viewer.

2) If you’ve recently added new hardware, remove it and retest.

3) Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the manufacturer.

4) Make sure device drivers and system BIOS are up-to-date.

5) However, if you’ve installed new drivers just before the problem appeared, try rolling them back to the older ones.
6) Open the box and make sure all hardware is correctly installed, well seated, and solidly connected.

7)Confirm that all of your hardware is on the Hardware Compatibility List.

8)Check for viruses.

9)Investigate recently added software.

10)Examine (and try disabling) BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

I get error rtl100.bpl what must i do


hi
i am techbuddies from fixya group i would like to try and solve your issue .
please try to follow these steps

You probably read web pages written in a language that displays Right To Left
(hence rtl100) There are several reasons why that file might corrupt, an
add-on of some kind being the main suspect. Go to start/run, and type:

iexplore -extoff

to see it that stops the error.
If not, try refreshing all system files with :

sfc /scannow

if is doesnot work then try this

Are any devices malfunctioning? Select Start, All Programs, Accessories,
System Tools, System Information. Open Components under System Summary
and click on Problem Devices. Is anything listed there?

Are there any yellow question marks in Device Manager? Right click on
the My Computer icon on your Desktop and select Properties,
Hardware,Device Manager. If yes what is the Device Error code?

Does anything turn up in the Event Viewer Logs?

You can access Event Viewer by selecting Start, Control Panel,
Administrative Tools, and Event Viewer. When researching the meaning
of the error, information regarding Event ID, Source and Description
are important.

A tip for posting copies of Error Reports! Run Event Viewer and double
click on the error you want to copy. In the window, which appears is a
button resembling two pages. Click the button and close Event
Viewer.Now start your message (email) and do a paste into the body of
the message. Make sure this is the first paste after exiting from
Event Viewer.
if the same problem comes up please try to get in touch with me on my email or on fixya

thanks
