Question about Acer Aspire 9805WKHi Notebook

Computer turns itself On

Hi, I got my refurbished Acer Aspire a few months ago, and nearly five times out of the week after turning my computer off at night, when I come back in the morning, it's on again! I check the system on-time, and it will range from turning on right after I turn it off to being on just half an hour before I return to it. I have no idea what's making it do this. Someone suggested to me that maybe the lid is pressing the power button, but I don't think that's very likely. If you have any other suggestions on what this might be, please let me know.

My 9805 has same problem. I think it has to do with power surges. If I unplug the laptop, it doe not have this problem..Also, I find the same problem if I am using different remotes near it. The tv remote will turn it on.

The turn off settings must be wrong, there should be a empower programme if it;s been refurbed properly with the software that tells the pc to turn off or log off or hibernate when you shut down the pc. Either that or you are logging off and not shutting down, then closing the lid and then if theres a antivirus programme or other shedulled to run awakes the pc although you think its off, i would do as you normally do to shut it off then press the liitle rubber pin just below the screen and see if it restarts and opens up a programme.

I bought this computer a couple of months ago and have used it about 3 times. When I turned it on, there was no power and it was fully charged before I went offline the last time. Now my battery icon...

> bought this computer a couple of months ago

Then, it should be FULLY covered under WARRANTY, either from the store from where you bought it, or from ACER.

> new battery from COSTCO

It's probably 100% fine; it's your laptop that is the problem.

Exercise the WARRANTY to get the laptop repaired/replaced, at NO COST to you.

Hi. i bought my acer aspire 5583 3 years it suddenly can not be turned on... last 2 weeks i still can play it..but one week later when i came back from holiday...i found out sth wrong with my...

This is just a suggestion ... try removing the battery and turning the computer on with only the mains power lead attached.

Sometimes, as the battery dies, it does silly things with the computer.

If it works, order a new battery.

Hope this helps,

Acer Aspire E500 RAM

This is because your computer is sharing the physical memory with the graphics memory so it will actually subtract the amount of the shared memory from the physical memory in the computer giving you the 780 that you see because the computer reserves a portion of that to use for your graphics.

My monitor turns itself off

If it's only a few months old then send it back under warranty.
The fault you have is the inverter circuit.

Hope that helps. =)
